Near Death Experiences / Afterlife Studies/Fear of death and needing advice on life after death


I have a terrible fear of death. I try to meditate but I cannot as I get real panicky and my mind keeps thinking of death. I would like to know if you believe the soul is out of the body at the moment of death ? I have watched my love one die and I sure did not feel his soul had left his body as he was terrified. Death is something that should not happen and I feel hopeless at the hands of this frightening beast I am 60 and scared to live encase I die, Can you help ease my fears so I can learn to live again I have had a lucid dream and yet I was not really asleep. I had an explosive noise like a boom inside my head then I saw my Deceased Mum inside my third eye she did not talk but looked years younger and seemed to be trying to relay a message to me. I have also experienced one out of the body looking down on .I had written another question to you but I typed the wrong email address so you probably would not get it so I sent this one the email address myself

Hello Rosemay,

It will be under this question that you will also find the answers to your other question: "Fear of death, NDE & OBE". I will have to do more research on your particular issue. As I'm just finishing an investigation, and am approximately 300 miles from my library, it may be a few days before I can answer you properly.

Thank you for your patience.
