Recently, I was talking with a hospice nurse about her experiences. She confirmed what I’ve found in my own experience. To the surprise of many people, it is not unusual in the final moments of life for the dying to begin talking with individuals that no one can see. Often these encounters are written off as hallucinations even though they are quite different from hallucinatory experiences.
I am convinced we must learn how to honor these moments and learn from them. Anyone out there have similar stories and experiences they can share? I’d love to hear them.
