Dr. Eben Alexander has written a book I recommend you read. It’s called Proof of Heaven (check it out on Amazon) and I believe you should put it in your queue of “Books to Read”.
From Dr. Alexander’s website:
“Dr. Eben Alexander III has been an academic neurosurgeon for the last 25 years, including 15 years at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital, the Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. Over those years he has personally dealt with hundreds of patients suffering from severe alterations in their level of consciousness. Many of those patients were rendered comatose by trauma, brain tumors, ruptured aneurysms, infections, or stroke. In his academic career he has authored or co-authored over 150 chapters and papers in peer reviewed journals, and made over 200 presentations at conferences and medical centers around the world. He thought he had a very good idea of how the brain generates consciousness, mind and spirit.
In the predawn hours of November 10, 2008, he was driven into coma by a rare and mysterious bacterial meningitis-encephalitis of unknown cause. He spent a week in coma on a ventilator, his prospects for survival diminishing rapidly. On the seventh day, to the surprise of everyone, he started to awaken. Memories of his life had been completely deleted inside of the coma, yet he awoke with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm – more real than this earthly one! His older son advised him to write down everything he could remember about his journey, before he read anything about near-death experiences, physics or cosmology. Six weeks later, he completed his initial recording of his remarkable journey, totaling over 20,000 words in length. Then he started reading, and was astonished by the insights his journey brought to the world’s literature on near-death experiences, and to all phenomena of extended consciousness. His experience clearly revealed that we are conscious in spite of our brain – that, in fact, consciousness is at the root of all existence.
He has been blessed with a complete recovery and shares his most powerful, life-changing story in his book, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife. His story offers a crucial key to the understanding of reality and human consciousness. It will have a major effect on how we view spirituality, soul and the non-material realm. In analyzing his experience, including the scientific possibilities and grand implications, he envisions a more complete reconciliation of modern science and spirituality as a natural product.”
Why Should I Care What Some Guy in a Bow Tie Says?
What you’ll find in this book is not a “road map” for utilizing your amazing personal power as a deliberate creator. You already know where to go to get that 😉
The reason you should read it is what Dr. Alexander has to say about the human brain. Whereas he once would have told you, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that your brain is the source of your consciousness (i.e. your brain is “you”), he know firmly believes (backed up with scientific data) that your brain is merely a tool for your consciousness to use (i.e. your brain is not “you”, but merely a tool for the real “you” to use).

Your Brain Isn’t “You”, But It Is Your Ally
And how do you use your brain? Your brain allows you to have the illusion of being separate from everything else (even, or especially, God) so that…you can live life on Earth as a human being. (Click that link to Tweet it)
Without this illusion, it wouldn’t be possible to experience life as a human being because you’d “know” what you really are – an eternal energy who could never (ever) be separated from the infinite energy of the universal mind (or the “quantum field”, as physicists refer to it).
As a student of deliberate creation, you already “know” this, but having it validated by a prominent physician is a fun and enlightening read. Check out Dr. Alexander’s book today and let me know what you think.
