"The story of Colton Burpo is the story of the vast majority of children who have near-death experiences. These children typically see the dead as quite alive, converse with angels, spend time within God's Great Light, see grass singing and animals talking. They come back wiser and more intelligent than before, more sensitive, intuitive, and open. The tragedy of this is parents and medical doctors who believe the child is hallucinating and should be drugged. Nothing could be further from the truth. Millions upon millions of people globally have near-death experiences. These experiencers, young and old, declare that what happened to them was spiritual. Most return knowing God, knowing the real truth of life, knowing they are soul with a job to do."

. . . P. M. H. Atwater, L.H.D., researcher of near-death states since 1978.
Wrote 10 books on her findings, including

Dying to Know You:
Proof of God
in the Near-Death Experience

- due out August, 2014.

The past 30 years have seen a quantum leap in the intuitive, creative, and abstract- thinking abilities of children as well as an unprecedented rise in incidences of ADHD, dyslexia, and autism spectrum disorders. As PMH Atwater explains, we are witnessing evolution at work. The changes in consciousness and brain function evident in these “new kids” signal the widespread emergence of the Fifth Root Race and, fortuitously, coincide with our transition into the Fifth World.

At the very time that this new, revised edition was being released in January 2013, an announcement was made of a scientific study that verified the premise of future memory. Unbeknownst to the author, that scientific study was originally inspired by an earlier edition of her book, “Future Memory.”

Still available is PMH Atwater's most controversial book to date that dares to reveal "the rest of the story" about near-death experiences. Uncovering what really happens to children and adults who undergo this phenomenon, Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of The Story combines extensive, objective research with first-person "survivor" accounts, as well as well as an exploration of "brain shift/spirit shift."

One of the top ten picks of 2011 by Publishers Weekly!

NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES: the rest of the story

And now there’s
a book on
near-death experiences and their aftereffects that is specially designed for clinicians...
Get this book for your doctors, clinics, mental health-care people, hospitals, educators, anyone who is a clinician who could benefit from reading this book   It is a relatively small book, but jam-packed with the kind of information clinicians need.

I cannot begin to emphasize how important this is. Somehow, in all the years of research, books, and peer-reviewed papers, medical staff worldwide are still uninformed about this phenomenon. Since the majority of experiencers, irrespective of age, come back unable to tolerate pharmaceuticals as before, the information in this Handbook is crucial! ~PMH

Making Sense of Near-Death Experiences:  A Handbook for Clinicians,
edited by Mahendra Perera,
Karuppiah Jagadheesan, and Anthony Peake. 
Published by Jessica Kingsley: London and Philadelphia, 2012.

An international authority on near-death states, Dr. Atwater uses the culmination of her research to establish that the near-death phenomenon is not some kind of anomaly, but is rather part of the larger genre of transformations of consciousness. She combines her 33 years of near-death research with what she was doing in the 60s and 70s, experiencing, experimenting with, and researching altered states of consciousness, mysticism, psychic phenomena, and the transformational process, to reveal what transformations of consciousness really are, why we have them, and where they lead us. This lifetime endeavor covers over 43 years of work, involving nearly 7,000 people. Her meticulous and unique protocol gives validity to what she has discovered and verified, and to the link that can be made between what is happening in the Middle East and the percentage worldwide of people who have undergone near-death experiences. A tipping point has been reached, a shared reality has emerged. . . for a leaderless, global, revolution in consciousness!

Now as PMH Atwater's final book on the phenomenon has been published, take a look back at the beginning. Here is where many first heard of her book "Coming Back to Life" in an interview on "Geraldo" in 1988.

Her groundbreaking contributions continue with Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of The Story, examining the phenomena of:

  • Group experiences
  • “Heaven” and “Hell”
  • "Light" encounters
  • Aftereffects including unusual or amplified sensitivities
  • Spiritual transformations and societal implications

Basing her findings on extensive first person interviews as well as scientific studies of the deeper structures of the brain,
Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of The Story is a rational examination of an experience that defies ordinary reason – the first book to tackle this difficult and controversial subject from both the scientific and spiritual perspectives.
