Dr. Dianne Morrissey's Near-Death Experience
When the late Dr. Dianne Morrissey
(1949-2009) was twenty-eight years old, she was electrocuted
and had a very profound near-death experience. Her experience
transformed her entire life in a very big way. Today, she
is a certified hypnotherapist and has taught 25,000 people
to see and feel God's presence during the dream state. Her
You Can See the Light: How to Touch Eternity and Return
Safely, will train you to do this very thing yourself.
Her practical techniques will not only give you a transformational
mystical experience but can actually heal your physical
body. The following is an excerpt from her book,
You Can See the Light.
Her previous book on out-of-body experiences is entitled
Anyone Can See the Light.
Also, I highly recommend her video entitled
Soul Journeys Beyond the Light.
It is one of the best NDE videos I have ever seen.

Her Physical Body
"I bent over
to pick up the plastic tubing. As I began to straighten up,
I accidentally bumped the tubing on the edge of the tank. The water
suddenly squirted across my face - the pain was so sharp, it felt
as if a knife where slitting my cheek! I screamed from the
shock and pain, then felt a moment of temporary relief as the water
crossed over my molars. My reprieve was short-lived, however,
as the electrified water rushed into my mouth.
"As my body bent over in shock, I had
the most uncanny knowledge that death was ahead of me. I began
to mourn the loss of everything I'd known: the Earth, my home, my
friends - all that I'd been aware of, all that I loved. Everything
I'd believed to be true and lasting was slipping away from me. I
was face to face with death, face to face with the unknown.
"My body was thrown backwards and to
one side by the current. My body crashed to the floor, thrown
with such force that my head went right through the drywall, about
a foot above the floor. I never felt the injuries, however, because
I was no longer in my body. I was actually watching my electrocution
"How could I be out of my body and still
be alive?" I wondered, astonished.
I was aware that I was inside a vast, seemingly infinite blackness.
I wasn't sure where this blackness was in relationship to the Earth,
but for some reason I was unafraid. My blackout period was
brief, for I now found myself back in my home, but in a new form.
I was transparent, yet I still looked like me.
"How elated I felt! Now, out of my body,
I had no worries, no cares. Never had I felt like this when
I was 'alive.' My entire spirit body was transparent, and I
was inside a glowing white light that extended about three feet
"At that moment, an awareness overtook
me - I am not my physical body! This realization made me feel
so free, so wonderful! My spirit was glowing with a white light
that illuminated the entire room.
"Then, I was up near the ceiling again.
Everything still looked the same - the furnishings, the walls -
but there was a new awareness about the dimension to the scene -
it had become transparent. I could see everything more clearly than
ever before, and like a scientist, I found myself looking at life
through a microscope, discovering minuscule particles of matter
"I was now aware of the absence of physical
sensations, yet I was feeling a heightened sense of awareness such
as I'd never felt while alive. I knew I was different from the 'Dianne'
I had been, but I also knew I was 'me.' It was similar to looking
at your reflection in a mirror; you know you're not the reflection,
but it does appear to be you.
"Now, I saw that everything was shrouded
by a mist. Despite a lack of gravity, I could easily control
my direction, and when I moved into the living room, I noticed that
I had just walked through the glass coffee table. 'Wow! How
did I do that?' I marveled.
"Tuffy (Dianne's dog) suddenly entered
the den and began nipping at my face and pawing at my arm, trying
to get my body to wake up. I knew that his relentless attempts
to awaken my physical body wouldn't work, yet I was proud of him
for trying, and even hoped his efforts might work. I wondered
where his chum, Penny, was, and suddenly I was next to her in the
backyard. I opened my mouth to talk to her and felt my tongue moving,
but no sounds came out. I could distinctly hear my voice, and then
realized it was coming from my mind. I tried several times to get
Penny's attention, yelling, 'Penny, can you see me? Penny, can you
hear me?' Apparently she didn't, because there was no response.
"Next, I walked around my backyard. As
I looked through the walls of my house toward the front sidewalk,
I noticed a man walking down the street. Eagerly, I flew to him,
right through the walls, and tried to get his attention. Staring
deeply into his eyes, I said forcefully, 'Can you help me? I need
help.' Then I tried to shake his shoulders, but he still didn't
notice me. Frustrated, I tried to touch his shoulder to get him
to look at me, and my hand went through his upper right shoulder
blade and out his back. This startled me.
"'What am I to do?' I wondered, becoming
upset when I realized that the man could neither see nor hear me.
Instantly, I was back in my yard again, Penny beside me. I
noticed that whenever I felt any apprehension, I was instantly moved
to a place of greater comfort.
"On the way back to the den, I stopped
right in the middle of the wall between rooms. I sensed that
I was to look down at something fantastic, and as I gazed downward,
I saw a long silver cord coming out of my spirit body, right through
the cheesecloth-like fabric I was wearing. The cord extended
down and out in front of me, and as I turned around, I saw that
the silver cord draped around and behind me, like an umbilical cord. I
followed it through the two hallway walls and into my den, where
I saw it attached to the back of the head of my physical body. The
cord was about an inch wide and sparkled like Christmas tree tinsel!
"As soon as I saw that the silver cord
was attached to my physical body, my spirit body was thrust into
a dark tunnel. I moved through it with great speed, traveling faster
than I could have imagined possible. Although the tunnel was
filled with an all consuming darkness, I felt peaceful and unafraid."

Profound Life Review
I came to the end of the darkness, I stepped into a new dimension. Here,
I could sense the presence of a loving spirit, sent - I knew - by
God to greet me. Then, I was back at the site of my physical
body. Back and forth I traveled through the tunnel, several
times in succession, moving from the Other Side to my electrocuted
physical body and back again.
"Each time I emerged from the tunnel,
I was met by a radiant angelic being who stood before me, smiling. The
being had no wings, and I sense it was female. She was everything
I'd ever dreamed an angel would be. As she moved toward me,
I walked to meet her. Her love surrounded me, and my spirit
was filled with an almost unbearable joy. The love this angelic
being radiated towards me made me feel that she cared more about
me than anyone else ever had or could. Her love filled every
particle of my being, every thought, and every emotion within me.
I felt completely comforted and reassured.
"She 'spoke' by sending words directly
into my mind. 'How can I hear her thoughts before she utters
them?' I wondered. Yet, at the same time I was hearing her
questions, I was answering them! This marvelous being seemed
to know all my thoughts instantly, just as I immediately knew hers. Although
I was standing directly before her, I could see her from every angle:
front, back, top, bottom, and both sides - like a cubist painting
"She walked closer and stood with me;
then, we were both lifted about ten inches into the air, as if we
were on a platform moving upward. Extending her arm before
her, she indicated that I was to look to my left. I did so, my heart
and soul completely open to her, for I knew God had sent her to
help me decide what I should do with my life.
"As I turned my eyes left, the entire
scene changed into a life review, a vivid, three-dimensional color
display of my entire life. Every detail of every second, every
feeling, every thought while I had been alive on Earth was displayed
before me in perfect chronological order, from my birth until my
"At the same time, to my amazement, I
was re-living my entire twenty-eight years simultaneously! The best
experiences brought me feelings of great joy, as if God were talking
to me through the angelic being, sharing the highest moments of
my life. I felt as if every spirit in Heaven was watching with me,
applauding me and letting me know that God approved of my caring,
unselfish deeds. It was then that I asked myself, 'Am I dead? Am
I really dead?'
"As the life review continued, I was
shown two very special deeds I had performed. As these scenes
were displayed before me, every emotion I had originally felt returned
in full force. I also felt as if God and the angelic being
were honoring me for having performed those deeds.
"I will never forget the love that surrounded
me at that moment, or the joy that ran through me. Can you
imagine being hugged by God and your angel? It's an experience
that defies description!
"The first deed I witnessed had occurred
the day I stopped my car to help push a woman's stalled station
wagon out of mainstream traffic and into a supermarket driveway.
The driver had been struggling to push the car by herself, and I
felt compelled to give her a helping hand. After I had helped
push her vehicle to safety, I rushed back to my car, afraid of getting
a ticket for being double-parked. In my haste, I hadn't given her
a chance to thank me. While reviewing this scene, I was filled with
indescribable feelings of love, which seemed to be directed to me
from angelic beings high above me.
"Then, my angel showed me a second vision,
a scene I'd forgotten. I now saw myself at seventeen, when I'd worked
at a convalescent hospital after school. I had grown fond of
a toothless old woman who was no longer able to speak clearly, and
who never had visitors. She liked to suck on graham crackers
before going to bed, but no one wanted to serve her because when
she had finished, she would drool as she kissed the entire length
of the arm of the person feeding her. While others avoided
her, I willingly fed her the cookies she adored, seeing how happy
this made her.
"When that scene was replayed for me,
I felt as if every loving spirit in God's kingdom was thanking me
in unison. I was amazed that such an act could have meant so much
to God - and to me. I felt humbled and very honored.
"A glow surrounded the radiant being
as she presented my life review, continuing to communicate with
me telepathically. As I viewed the scenes of my life, it felt as
if I were absorbing many books all at once with perfect clarity.
"Finally, my life review was finished,
and I was whisked away from the angelic being and returned to the
tunnel. This time, I seemed to be falling through it, finally emerging
in another room, in another dimension. It was a world far more beautiful
than any I could ever have imagined, a place of awesome serenity. The
peace and calm I felt surpassed any previous notions I had had about
Heaven, and I knew, in the deepest part of my soul, that God was

Her Higher Self
this rapturous place, I recognized that there were two aspects of
'me.' My soul was my consciousness, everything that had made me
who I had been and what I had become. My spirit, on the other
hand, was the part of me that was now transparent and glowing, dressed
"As I looked around me, I initially found
everything dimly lit. Then, I clearly saw a canopy bed resting in
the center of an infinite vista stretched out before me. The
bed was actually glowing within a Heavenly radiance which enveloped
me as well.
"To my astonishment, I saw a duplicate
of myself lying on the bed. 'How can there be two of me? Or
three of me?' I wondered.' But I was instantly reassured by the
loving vibrations around me. The feeling reminded me of being
reassured by a dear, trusted friend saying, 'Don't worry, all is
"There were two things I knew for certain:
first, that I was Dianne, and second, that my physical body was
dead. I also knew that the duplicate of Dianne on the bed was
another me, but I did not know what she represented. Now, I
was beginning to feel as if I were in three places at once!
"One part of me was the transparent Dianne
on the bed. The second was my physical body in the den, the
body that no longer had life. The third part of me was my spirit,
now out of its body. This part of me remained conscious and aware
of all my experiences, both here and back on Earth.
"I knew beyond a doubt that I wanted
to stay in this magnificent place, where I felt so loved, so accepted. 'How
does one feel accepted by a place? Let me put it this way:
as I walked toward the bed, I could actually 'feel' Heaven all around
me. The rapture and peace were beyond my wildest imaginings,
and I wanted to stay here forever and ever.
"Do you remember how it felt, long ago,
to be held and rocked in your mother's loving arms? Take this to
the hundredth power and you're still light years away from the feeling
of total peace and comfort that surrounded me. I felt the love of
every mother in the universe being poured inside me for now and
for all eternity.
"Although the bed before me was not my
bed, the sheets looked amazingly like my own. I could hardly
believe it when I realized that they were actually breathing, filled
with life! The canopy bed was also alive, not made of the dense
physical matter as it would have been created from on Earth.
"As I walked closer to the bed, it radiated
such love to me that I knew no earthly painter or craftsman could
have created it - not Leonardo da Vinci, not Rembrandt, not Michelangelo,
not Monet. This bed had been made by God.
"Now, the Light was welcoming me, inviting
me to recline on this Heavenly creation. The transparent 'me' was
gone, and as I lay down, I felt the lace caressing me with rapture,
peace, and love. I was moved to tears of joy.
"At that moment, I knew that nothing
ever dies. Nothing ever dies!
"I also knew that I would never die.
If I stayed in this place, I knew I would be alive, but in a different
way than I had been before my electrocution. I would still be Dianne,
and I would still have my memories, but I would also feel this unbelievable
love around me forever. How I longed to stay!
"Then, I sense that I must look to my
right, through the lace. There, I could see a pinpoint of Light
coming from the next room, the next dimension, the infinity beyond.
I knew I must see more clearly, so with my right hand I lifted up
the lace. I knew I had no choice but to look."

One with the Light
pinpoint of Light became a brilliant white beam a trillion times
brighter than the brightest sun imaginable, and began to move toward
me. At first, it appeared to be bands of multifaceted light
being stretched and pulled together. I knew this Light was the presence
"I was awestruck, overwhelmed by the
Light, the love, the love of God for me! I knew I could go into
this Light, which was part of a tremendous force. And, although
the Light was brighter than a thousand suns, it didn't hurt my eyes.
"I was going to have to choose between
staying in the Light and going back to Earth. Somehow, I knew
that if I went into the next room, into the Light, I could never
return to my body.
"I felt torn between two desires: wanting
to go into the Light, and wanting to touch something tangible and
retain my connection with all that was physical. Both desires
grew stronger. The Light became more intense, more radiant,
more loving. As I lifted the lace and extended my hand toward
the brilliance, wanting to touch the Light, it rushed under the
lace and touched the outstretched middle finger of my right hand.
"As soon as the Light touched me, I was
transformed. The Light and my spirit merged - I had entered
the Light of God, and all sense of my spirit body was gone. My consciousness,
fully alive, was now totally connected to God.
"Within the Light, I knew that everyone
and everything is connected to it. God is in everyone, always
and forever. Within the Light was the cure for all diseases; within
the Light was all the knowledge of every planet, every galaxy, every
universe. Indeed, the Light was Wisdom and Love beyond all comprehension.
"Being one with the Light was like suddenly
knowing every grain of sand on every planet, in every galaxy, in
every universe, and at the same time knowing why God had put each
grain of sand in its particular place. The Light held within it
the knowledge of every book in every language, from the beginning
of creation to the end of time. The Light knew why every author
had put every word exactly where it was. The Light conveyed the
message that each gain of sand, each plant, rock, animal, and human
being has a purpose and that nothing ever dies because after death,
there is a new life on the Other Side.
"This Light and my spirit mingled for
what felt like an eternity, but eventually I began to sense with
great urgency that the time had come to choose whether I would stay
here or return to physical life. How could I decide?"

Her Guardian Angel
my spirit body was back in the tunnel. Again, when I emerged
from the tunnel, the angelic being was waiting for me. Now,
I noticed that her hair was brown and turned under just above her
heavenly shoulders. Each of her features was now more clearly
visible as I paid closer attention to them. Breathing did not
seem necessary for her or for me, yet we were both full of life. She
looked at me and asked telepathically, 'What do you want, Dianne?'
"I said, 'I want to go into the Light,
and I want to touch things.'
"She asked me thousands of questions
all at the same time, and I responded to them, communicating directly
from my mind to hers.
"Her angelic voice asked, 'Have you ever
felt this much love?' "I answered, 'No.' 'Have you ever felt this
much joy?' 'No.' 'Have you ever felt this much peace?' 'No.' 'Have
you ever felt this much rapture?' 'No.' 'Have you ever experienced
this much bliss?' 'No.' 'Have you ever felt this much kindness?'
"Thousands of questions, one within the
other, one on top of another, all of the questions at once, yet
"I wanted desperately to go into the
Light again. Then, the radiant being asked, 'Are you sure,
"Yes," I replied. "Of course I was sure!"
"I was suddenly thrust forward through
the tunnel, and when I looked down, I was aghast to see my physical
body below me. It looked dead and lifeless, but this time I was
disinterested whether I saved it or not.
"What mattered to me was the Light. I
wanted the Light. I was again thrust forward through the tunnel. The
angelic being was still there, waiting for me to truly decide about
my life, waiting for me to decide about my death, waiting for me
to decide about my future.
"This time she was even more radiant,
more loving. I had never imagined feeling such bliss, and I felt
boundless love for her. She asked, 'Have you ever been in a world
"I answered, 'No.'
"She asked, 'Have you ever been in a
world without war?'
"I answered, 'No.'
"Have you ever been in a world without
anger, without rage, without grief, without sadness, without envy,
without poverty, without jealousy, without worry, without tears?"
"Again, thousands of questions, all at
the same time. I answered them all the same way - emphatically,
'No.' 'I knew that no other place in the universe could feel as
good, as loving, as peaceful as this Heavenly place.
"For some reason, however, the angelic
being sent me into the tunnel again, back and forth through many
tunnels. I wondered why. I still wanted to 'touch,' but I wanted
the Light - both desires tugging at my spirit."

| 6. Dianne Returns
to Her Physical Body
finally found myself back in my house, once again looking down at
my physical body. This time, I realized that my physical body
had the potential to live again. I had begun to care less and less
whether I returned to my physical body, but at this moment, looking
down at my body, my attitude underwent a change. I thought, 'How
sad; she has done so very little.' I realized 'Dianne' hadn't touched
as many people as she could have while alive. And I realized
how life could be enriched by touching others lives more deeply
"While alive, as Dianne, I had always
known that my life was full of certain pleasures: a beautiful home,
a good job, a nice car, warm friends, a wonderful family, a beloved
best friend, and a musical career I loved. 'But none of these
matter any more,' I thought, reversing myself again. Only the Light
mattered. Only God mattered.
"To my surprise, I began to feel a persistent
pulling sensation from about four inches above my navel. I tried
to resist it, for I sensed a new process was beginning, one that
might take me from this place, from God. I didn't want to leave
behind such feelings of elation. Yes, I wanted to touch things,
but I wanted the Light even more.
"Suddenly, I was rushing through the
tunnel again. When I emerged, I was up near the ceiling in
the den, looking down at my physical body below me. Then, without
warning, I was thrust swiftly back into my body, entering through
the back of my neck, with my spirit legs and arms together, like
a diver doing a jackknife.
"As I re-entered my body, I knew that
the God within me could never die, and I knew that I could never
die. For a moment, I actually saw myself half in and half out
of my body. Then, with a jolt, I landed fully back in my body.
"Oh, my God," I thought, "How could I
have chosen to come back? I want to be in the Light again." Tears
ran down my cheeks and I wept, desolate about the choice that had
been made. 'Had it really been my choice?' I couldn't believe
that I had decided to come back.
"I now believe that one reason I was
sent back was to help people feel better about dying - and to learn
that death is not an end, but a new beginning."
