Dr. Eben Alexander is a neurosurgeon and the author of the book Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife, in which he describes his 2008 near-death experience that radically changed his understanding and view of reality. He also wrote the book Map of Heaven. He explains how the current physical scientific model of consciousness, based upon the theory that consciousness begins and ends in the brain, is weak and cannot explain phenomena like telepathy, past life memories, near death experiences, remote viewing, etc. He says we are on the cusp of evolving into a newer and higher understanding of consciousness, and of who we are and why we’re here.
He is beautifully articulate in this interview about describing his own near death experience and also the evidence that points to our true identity as eternal beings that are intricately interwoven with each other like a tapestry, and that heaven really is here and now beneath the illusion of this human experience. He also discusses ways of connecting to one’s higher self through meditation. He says that when we know that we’re far more than this body and also the voice in our head, we can bring great gifts into our lives on earth and realize that we’re all participants in this grand awakening.
I’ll leave you with his words and his audio interview which is about 55 minutes long, and well worth the listen! Here is Eben….
“The most central message I bring through my presentations and books is the insurmountable power of unconditional love to change our world for the better. In spite of what many would point to as the darkness of our times, I remain optimistic that the way out of our troubles is always at hand. Our beacon in these times, as during past challenges, is the great power of the human spirit to usher us into a far better and more harmonious world for all through love, compassion, forgiveness, acceptance and mercy. Unconditional love has infinite power to heal, whether one is talking about healing the individual, the soul group, ethnic populations, nations, all of humanity, all of life on earth, or beyond.
Please enjoy this audio interview that I provided for the Heaven on Earth telesummit I participated in earlier this year.
To all of you, my best personal wishes for love, peace and harmony – for all of this world!”
