In the moments before death, a loved one who’s been in an irretrievable coma suddenly wakes up and spends a few minutes or a few hours talking calmly and lovingly to friends and family.
To the family it seems like a miracle. Their loved one is suddenly cured.
Doctors know better. To them it’s just another case of terminal lucidity, when a dying patient, sometimes with irreversible brain damage, has a moment of mental clarity just before death… for no known reason. There’s no medical or scientific explanation of how these lucid moments are possible, especially when the patient’s body and brain are damaged or spent beyond repair.
So what’s really going on in these last, lucid moments?
Well, if we understand the human spirit, it’s really not such a mystery.
While we’re alive and awake on Earth, our body is a vehicle used by our finer self, our spirit, to move around in this dense world.
Dying is a period of detachment… a time when our spirit is preparing to return home to paradise. And before leaving, we might want to tie up loose ends with those we leave behind.
One way to tie up loose ends is to visit our loved ones in lucid dreams, when their bodies are sleeping and their spirits are active and accessible. In effect, our guy (our spirit) talks to their guys (their spirits), so that hopefully the message gets through to the big guy (the carnal body and mind of one of our loved ones) once they wake up.
In the future there will be ITC systems, and we’ll be able to communicate with our friends on Earth through phones and radios and computers.
For now, one very natural and effective way to tie up loose ends is simply to communicate through our faltering vehicle or dying body one last time before it “gives up the ghost.” Even if the body isn’t biologically viable, it still has enough working parts to let us get our message through with loving eyes, warm hands, and a functional voicebox.
Hopefully, one day soon it will be just as natural for us, after we’ve died, to talk to loved ones back home on Earth through ITC systems.
A lot of good researchers are busy trying to make that happen.
For now, we can embrace those intimate moments when our dying loved ones, preparing for their next adventure, take a few moments to share their final moments of love and lucidity with us before moving on.
