Must Watch

I survived because I was asleep

The first time we come face to face with mortality is a watershed point in our lives. The impact of this contact is determined by a variety of circumstances, including the stage of cognitive and emotional development at the time of the encounter. Around the age of seven, the concept of death becomes cognitively established. When a child has this initial interaction during pregnancy or in the early years of life, only a mother’s fear that her child may die can trigger a physiological reaction that becomes trapped in both mother and child’s bodies, establishing a feedback loop. Knowing how our bodies respond to our first brush with death can aid us in developing specialized solutions to address these types of physical symptoms, which could otherwise go unnoticed. Bereaved people frequently claim seeing, hearing, or feeling the presence of the deceased, according to historical narratives and earlier study. We looked at these kinds of meetings in the context of grieving, mourning, and healing. 23 people who had a post-death experience after the death of a loved one were interviewed in semi-structured, in-depth interviews. Participants went through an interpretive process in which they tried to make meaning of their experiences, according to phenomenological analysis.
