Have you ever seen anything that you feel is proof there is an afterlife?
Please don't turn this into a religious debate. I simply want to know, regardless of your religious beliefs, if you have ever seen anything that you feel is undeniable proof that life does in fact go on after the body has died.
Yes, I do believe there is a strong possibility that consciousness transcends the physical body. I have talked to a relative that passed before who told me things (in a dreamstate) that were about to happen I couldn't have known otherwise. We had been very close in life and I was devastated when he passed. I think he did that to help me move on. When those events did indeed take place, I took great comfort in that act.
At one point I had a NDE - there was no lights and tunnels and angels and stuff, but I was aware of myself outside my body and able to recount things the doctor said to my mother in the corridor outside the room I was in - something I couldn't have just heard with my ears nevermind the fact I wasn't conscious at the time.
I am not religious at all and I do believe there is a high likelihood of transcending physical death.
My mother passed through the veil in August 2011. During her final illness we had home hospice who came three times per week. I was her primary caregiver and as we came close to the end my family rotated and took care of her. Her experience was unbelievable. She had out of body experiences that were witnessed by more than one member of the family. When we asked the hospice nurse she told us that Mother was between two worlds and she was adjusting. One day when she was still talking and sitting up she had a phone conversation with my sister who lived in another state. She suddenly started about walking and walking and how tired she was. We were just floored because she had not been out of the house. Once she became bed ridden we realized that she had been having out of body experiences for some time. There were many, many more experiences. After she left us my sister told me she would never fear death again. I never did fear death but I am confident about where I am going and have no fear at all. I am religious and some of my beliefs do not square with traditional religious teaching but I know what happened. I am one of nine children and there are many grandchildren who are all convinced of the unusual happenings during my mother's final days. I have always believed in the after life and now more than ever.
Many years ago, back in the 80s there was a boy who had been abducted on the tv news. I never really took a lot of notice back then, all I knew was that he had been on his bike behind his friend on his bike, when his friend turned round he was gone. nobody knew what happened to him. That night I dreamed of the little boy. He was standing by a lake pointing towards a guy with long brown hair. In my head I heard the boy say, 'He did it, he killed me, I am 9 feet out on the water, stabbed 6 times'. I woke up in shock and told loads of people. They said go to the police, so I said I would wait a couple of days to see what happened first. The next day long story short, the news stated that they had found the boys body out in a gravel pit full of water, looked like a lake, he was 9 feet out, and stabbed six times, then they arrested a guy with long brown hair. I had at least 20 witnesses! True story.
Yes, I experienced a proof that life does in fact go on. The day my mother died, I received a call at my office. The secretary told me that my mother was on the phone and that she insisted that I be interrupted even though I was speaking with a very good client. I then asked my client if I could call him back.
When I got on the phone, my mother apologized for interrupting my phone call with John, and at the time I did not think anything of it. My mother then continued to discuss with me the need to take care of my handicapped father if anything happened to her. I asked her if she was feeling bad, but my mother stated she was doing ok. My mother made me promise that I would take care of my father no matter how hard it might get. So, I promised her so she would feel good knowing that I would take over for her if something happened that would not allow her to continue to take care of him. I then asked if she was being truthful with me about her health, and then she startled me, when she said, "Honey, I am dying and just wanted to make sure you knew I was counting on you." She then said she had to leave now and do her last minute things. She then was gone.
I felt something awful as I could not figure out what just happened. But I was soon to find out, as the secretary once again came into the office. She told me it was my parents neighbor who was on the phone and that he had indicated he had some bad news for me.
I picked up the phone and before I could ask what was going on, Bill, the neighbor said, "your mother died this morning at 6am. She was getting breakfast for your father as she always does. But when she did not come back into the kitchen after going to the bathroom, your father went to find her. He then called me and we called the paramedics. They arrived in about 10 or 15 minutes and pronounced her dead about 15 minutes later. That was at 6:14am. Your dad said to tell you that she went peacefully."
Well, this was hard to believe because I had just spoken with my mother at 10am. So, I asked Bill, "are you sure, I just spoke with mom."
Bill said, "that's not possible, because the funeral director just took the body about 10 minutes ago. It took 2 hours to process the paperwork to remove her body."
That call came 4 hours after she died. And, she still talks to me when I am with my dad so that I can pass on things that will make him feel better.
Last week, she told me to take him to his favorite fishing hole.
And, I certainly did.
I'll do even better. Your body doesn't have to die to have such proof.
In 1971, while talking with a spiritual counselor in Los Angeles one evening, I closed my eyes, but suddenly couldn't feel my body. Instead, I could see clearly that I was hovering 15' above the ground and about 12' off of my body's left shoulder. My body still sat in a chair on the 2nd floor of the church building. I could see the soft, gray clouds in the L.A. sky above. I could see the near-empty parking lot next door at the Chez Claude restaurant at Olympic and Westlake. I could see the cracks in the pink stucco on the side of the church building. I could even see the closed, bluish-gray blinds between me and my body.
When I became self-conscious, realizing that I was not casting a shadow on the side of the building, I once again saw darkness and felt the chair beneath my body.
Here was awareness outside of the body that did not depend on human eyes for perception or human brain for thinking.
I have remembered hundreds of past lives, some more vividly than others. One from 11,632 years ago drew the most emotional response. I was female, then, the dominant gender in that society. I was a leader of a group of refugees from a large island empire that had collapsed in the Atlantic. Memories from that lifetime helped me to piece together what actually happened to Atlantis and where to look in the scientific literature for clues that would prove its past existence.

Yes, many things. Once you do there is no convincing there isn't an afterlife
