What is a shared death experience? Are they real? What is the evidence? And how does it differ from a near death experience? Is it spooky, scary or frightening? Is it BETTER evidence for an afterlife... or is it very similar to an NDE, and no different at all?
And how common are shared death experiences anyway? Are they more likely to happen in a hospital room, or can they happen anyplace at all? What do they prove... and HOW can we use them to lessen our fear of death overall? Any of these questions sound familiar? In this article we'll take a quick and insightful look at the phenomena that is referred to as a SNDE, and understand how from a practical standpoint, they might be the BEST "proof" of an afterlife that medical science (and mediums like us!) can offer people in grief. Curious to know more? Continue reading as we take a closer look below.
What is a shared death experience anyway? What is the definition?
Good question! The standard definition of a SNDE is the "shared" or mutual experience of dying, often with a close loved one, but where only ONE of the people are actually passing away. The second person is simply sharing in the traditional phenomena associated with the NDE, such as seeing the bright light, experiencing a life review, seeing deceased relatives, et al.
Who came up with the name "shared death experience anyway"?
Ironically, the internationally known doctor Raymond Moody, who also coined the phrase "NDE" years ago, was the first person to write about these events in great detail. (and came up with the "shared" part of the name as well, to add to his coining of the Near Death Experience, which is now used worldwide by skeptics, believers and medical professionals as well)
