I recently had the opportunity to review a copy of Carole A. Travis-Henikoff’s latest book, “Passings: Death, Dying, and Unexplained Phenomena.” The book explores pre-cognitive dreams, near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences and strange occurrences that can happen as one is dying, based upon events that have happened in the author’s own life. I personally approach these subjects with a skeptical, yet open mind.
Travis-Henikoff opens up and shares with readers some of the most painful moments of her life, involving the illnesses and deaths of loved ones. I found her examples of pre-cognitive dreams, near death experiences and phenomena that took place upon one’s passing from this life to be compelling and unsettling. She also investigates these experiences from a metaphysical angle, such as the light that so many people claim to see in near-death experiences . Travis-Henikoff not only explores the moment of death itself, but the events and processes leading up to passing from this life. It’s definitely a memorable read and I highly recommend the book.
While I have had a moderate amount of pre-cognitive dreams, it was always about something mundane or trivial, not a “singular” dream that stood out in my mind as being as real as reality, as explored in the book. I also know of a family who experienced strange incidents just before the passing of their mother. Was it just a form of mass hysteria induced by grief and exhaustion or was it something else? “Passings” explores such intriguing topics with a balance of human compassion and scientific research.
Have you ever dreamed about an event or experience that became true (pre-cognitive dream)? What about a near-death experience? Have you ever experienced any strange phenomena upon the passing of a loved one?
