What do Life Reviews teach Near-Death Experiencers and the rest of us?

Near-Death Experiencers tell us we will have the opportunity to re-experience our life when we die in what is called a Life Review. In studying over 200 Life Reviews in researching my new book called Your Life’s Ripple Effect, I discovered these six key lessons that Life Reviews teach us:



1. Examine your whole life from birth to death.

The comprehensive Life Review allows you to examine all of your choices, words, and deeds with all the people and situations you encountered during your lifetime from birth until physical death.


“I saw me as I was as a baby, a child, a teen, and adult, all at once. At the same time, I saw everything I ever did, everything I ever thought, everything. I saw events and people in my life that I previously considered important. Also, I saw many things that seemed not so important. I was aware of everything in my life all at once and I was aware of every response that others had to what occurred in my life. It was all there for me to understand … everything ‘good’, ‘bad’, or ‘indifferent.’” Grace Bulbulka





2. Experience your life from everyone’s perspective.

You’ll actually re-experience your life not just through your own eyes but from the eyes and unique perspective of every single person with whom you ever interacted in your Life Review.


“In this review, I realized that I was every single person I’d ever encountered or thought of. As I merged with and became them, I felt exactly what they experienced as a result of my loving or unloving thoughts and actions. I saw it all from their point of view, not only how my actions affected them, but then through them as they affected others they encountered, as the effects kept on going.” David Oakford




3. Empathize with others you both helped and hurt.

Through the Life Review you’ll feel exactly how all of your choices, words, and actions made others feel and realize how your behavior either helped or hurt everyone you ever met.


“With every interaction, I got to feel what it was like to be on the receiving end of whatever I was dishing out. Whenever I gave someone pleasure, I felt it too; and whenever I caused someone pain, I felt that too.” David Beckman




4. Evaluate yourself on how well you lived and loved.

By feeling what others felt when they interacted with you and seeing the full impact of your choices, you’ll evaluate your life on how well you lived, loved, and fulfilled your life’s purposes.

“I did find out about the so-called ‘Judgment Day’ I feared so much as a child. We judge ourselves and that at first was a big relief but our life is still our job. My past flashed before me, out of my control. I learned that the feared ‘Judgment Day’ shouldn’t be feared at all. I found out during my Life Review that we actually judge ourselves.” Glenda H.




5. Enlighten yourself about what really matters.

The Life Review reveals how much your life really matters to everyone and everything around you as you realize your powerful Ripple Effect on the world.


“Earth life, I found, is designed as a university, a school where we learn from our choices and our mortal experiences. I recognized that my most painful experiences taught me the most. It was enlightening to understand the bigger eternal picture – to know that I was not a victim of circumstances… I learned that being charitable, patient, and forgiving toward others are some of the most important character traits to be acquired – learned in the school of life.” Dr. Joyce Brown



6. Exemplify love in your thoughts, words, and deeds.

Based on understanding how your life impacts others, you’ll consciously and compassionately choose to think, speak, and act with much more love for the rest of your life.

“The love I received from that Living Benevolence was of such a nature, so big, so unspeakable, that it’s not even a choice that I make to share my love as much as I can with others in the earthly world.” Marion Rome
