I have not only heard of such stories, but know that things like this are referred to as the "bulb gets brighter before it goes out". That is how I
have heard many, many people describe it. If you have ever witnessed a lightbulb burn out, you will know that is exactly what it does. It shines very
brightly, then... just goes out.
I can tell you when a person starts talking to the ceiling, or tells you they are talking to their mother or father or other relative that have long
been deceased, they will die soon.
Some people reach for the light, or start "picking" at their clothes or sheets, trying hard to get up out of the bed to go to their loved ones.
Some people will come out of near coma like disorders, and sit up and start talking and acting like nothing had ever been wrong with them, only to die
a short time later.
Most people call it hallucionations, but I will share one very .. I will just say, disturbing story.
There was a woman that had suffered a fatal gunshot wound. She was on life support, and expected to die very shortly.
In a room next door was a man who had also suffered some injury, and he was only confused, and not totally oriented to time and date.
When the woman passed, he got terribly disturbed and cried out for someone. When someone went to him, he hasked if a woman had just died.
When she asked him why he was asking, he said she had come to see him after she had died. He then gave a very accurate description of her. She told
him he was going to be just fine, and he was.
There was no way he could have known anything about her, but he did.
You can also find videos on youtube about parents losing their children to lukemia or other reasons. They will tell you stories of how their loved one
knew at the exact moment, they were about to die.
There are some very touching videos on youtube like this that I ran across quite by accident, and I spent some time going through and viewing some of
It certainly made my life richer in a way, to have shared these stories so bravely posted by their families. If you go into it with the right
attitude, it is a very touching experience.
Most people die peacefully. This is one thing we can be greatful for.
I do believe there are things about life, and death, that we will never understand, but that it is also one of the things that keeps us searching for
answers that we will most likely never find. I think this is just how the human spirit is.
