The Support I Didn’t Know I Had

In last week’s episode of Wisdom and Life, I wrote about Flatlining to a Waiting Room.  I  probably shouldn’t have been, but I felt overwhelmed by the number of people who reached out to me while in the hospital.  As each day passed and I stayed in the hospital, I became concerned, wondering when I’d be discharged. Hearing from friends and having so many visitors brought me comfort.  Friends I hadn’t seen in almost fifteen years stopped by to visit.

Phone calls, texts, emails, messages on Facebook.


Just an amazing experience to know how much support I REALLY have.  Almost felt like my own life celebration and I’m immensely thankful.  


While I went through that traumatic experience, I DEFINITELY see the blessing.  It’s one thing I’ve learned during this, my latest incarnation:
That there is ALWAYS a blessing inside EVERY challenge.


I found two blessings:
1.  All the love and support helped me through.
2.  Having faith that something exists and ACTUALLY feeling it with EVERY sense gives me peace.  ACTUALLY experiencing an NDE, now shows me that my faith has been proven.


We are simply shells that encompass our essence.  Nothing ever dies. Our shells simply deteriorate.  Then we must find a new home for our essence.


I’m just so grateful for EVERYTHING!
I’m grateful for the love and support shown to me
I’m grateful to have been shown what happens when our bodies can no longer operate.
I’m grateful to have been shown we do INDEED survive our bodies.

And I’m grateful for the second chance, to have been sent back.


Be Happy!  Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.

  1. It is a wonderful feeling to know how much we are loved by others in this life. And still I am so encouraged by ~ and envious of ~ your death experience. What a joy to have it confirmed. Even though I know what I know, the experience of it is an entirely different thing. Glad you’re on the mend.

  2. I just saw you by the Madison Art Cinema and said “Hi Chris!” Isn’t it true, we can’t tell what our friends are going through: we think it’s just another Everyday day. But today was a gift!
