Demystifying the Process of Dying

April 4, 2015 rehadlock 0

As an aging body approaches death and begins slowly shutting down, many changes occur which often frighten those experiencing and witnessing the final days of a human life for the first time. We tend to fear things we don’t understand and because death is considered a “taboo” subject, most people don’t share what they observed after witnessing their loved one pass on. Generally, a person’s first “lesson” in death isn’t received until they are at the side of a spouse or parent who is dying, or until they are dying themselves and do not know what to expect from their final hours. In a person’s last […]

UPDATE: ‘Victims of Terror’, Past-Life Identity of Reincarnated Child Who Remembers Violent Death on 9/11

April 1, 2015 rehadlock 4

From my research for the previous article, I knew: -He was a businessman -He could see the Statue of Liberty from his office window in the World Trade Center -He either jumped or fell and saw his “brains come out of his head” before being […]
