Deathbed Vision Research
One of the first modern researchers was Sir William Barrett, a physics professor at the Royal Collage of Science in Dublin. Among his findings in late 1920's was evidence that previous to death teachings on what heaven and angels look like. they did not prove true, according to the dying. However, whatever that spiritual realm is, reportedly it is very beautiful and filled with love.
Another early and important researcher was Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D. (July 8, 1926 – August 24, 2004). She was a Swiss American psychiatrist who pioneered near-death studies and reported her findings in her book On Death and Dying (1969).
She was instrumental in encouraging and advancing the hospice care movement to provide end-of-life care that is a more private and peaceful environment for the dying away from invasive life sustaining medical intervention. Hospice care provides psychological care, spiritual support, and medical control of pain and comfort for those expected to live 6 months or less.
Carla Wills-Brandon M. A. in 2000 published the results of her research in her book One Last Hug Before I Go: The Mystery and Meaning of Deathbed Visions. Her latest book (2003) is A Glimpse of Heaven: The Remarkable World of Spiritually Transformative Experiences
My Plan for Dying
The combined research on Deathbed Visions, Death Awareness, Near Death Experiences, and After Death Communication all find similar patterns of a spirit transitioning from a physical body to a spiritual realm. The evidence from all the research, and my own Near Death Experience, provides compelling evidence for a never dying spirit.
My plan is to facilitate my transition to the spirit realm by all means possible identified in my studies of this subject. I'll be waiting and looking for whom ever is at the foot of my bed.
