The question of whether life continues after death is an age-old one. While some think that death is the end, there are plenty of others that believe the opposite. Here are four authors that have gone on record with their beliefs and experiences to say categorically that death is not the end.
Dr. Eben Alexander, "Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife"
In 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander fell victim to an E. coli meningitis infection; an infection that put him in a coma for a week. Brain scans showed that the parts of the brain that allow thought and consciousness were not functioning. Alexander’s chances of recovery were slim. Against all odds, the Harvard neurosurgeon came round, but he did so with an inspirational story to tell. According to Alexander, he spent his week in a coma exploring Heaven. During this time he met a young woman; a woman who he later realized was his biological sister whom he had never met.
Colton Burpo, "Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back"
The story of four-year-old Colton Burpo’s near-death experience enthralled America so much that the book—written with the help of his parents and contributor Lynn Vincent—later became a smash hit film. When Todd suffered a burst appendix, doctors told his parents that their son was going to die. Todd not only survived, but came back with a compelling account of meeting the Virgin Mary, John the Baptist, and Jesus. He also spoke of a sister who had died in his mummy’s tummy; a fact that the little boy was previously unaware of.
Sylvia Browne, "Life on the Other Side: A Psychic's Tour of the Afterlife"
Life on the Other Side is not American psychic and author Sylvia Browne’s only book. It is, in fact, one of a long stream of her written and audio works to explore life after death. In Browne’s view, it is not a possibility, but rather a certainty. This book draws on Browne’s remarkable career, using experiences such as hypnosis sessions, personal research, and psychic experiences to offer an inspiring and reassuring account of the afterlife: a peaceful and tranquil place where loved ones await their reunion with those still to pass over.
Deepak Chopra, "Life After Death: The Burden of Proof"
In Life After Death: The Burden of Proof, bestselling author and public speaker Deepak Chopra turns his attention to what happens after death. He explores the evidence that "the other side" is not separated from life by an impassable wall, but rather it is a simple continuation of the same soul journey. Chopra uses a healthy blend of scientific discoveries and ancient wisdom to argue his point that consciousness is eternal. In doing so, he has created a must-read book for anyone who seeks the answer to the question of what happens after death.
If you’d like to explore the concept of life after death further, you may find that a past life reading will offer proof and inspire faith that death is not, in fact, the end.
