With near-death cases, we usually get a good description of the event and what precipitated it from the experiencer, but very seldom do we ever receive the actual text of what was said while on "The Other Side." This is that rare exception, from Cailin J. Callahan. Now 51, she is tired of being a lone voice "crying in the wilderness," and is finally willing to speak up more publicly. Her near-death experience occurred when 19 in 1977 and she shares that with us now. I am grateful to Cailin for permission to post her account and use it in my research. ~PMH
There are many experiencers in this section who have shared the story of their near-death episode and how it affected them. I am grateful for all their stories and the courage it took to tell them. This entry from Juliet is different from the others. Here we have an experiencer nearing the end of her life who offers how the near-death experience she had in the mid-1970s opened wide new worlds and new realities for her, above and beyond a previous experience in childhood, and what she has learned since. It is a treasured piece, very philosophical. I thank Juliet for giving me permission to print it.
