The cumulative testimony for the reality of the OBE is enough to convince me that there is something to it, even if it falls short of strict scientific validation. There is too much consistency among the reports, too many honorable people among the reporters, too much intricate detail in the reporting of the explorations, and too little profit to be made from writing such books to believe that they are nothing but flights of the imagination.
“They were experienced in full waking awareness with my self-identity intact and the full awareness that my physical body was where it was at the time of the experience,” Ziewe, a resident of England, explains. He further states that he has spent hundreds of hours over the past 40 years in his out-of-body explorations.
Ziewe’ explorations of non-local states of consciousness and afterlife territories take him to realms of existence that go beyond human language and understanding, but he does his best to describe them. “For many of the environments I have visited, I could only really give testimony of them by reproducing them as images,” he states. “In our verbal descriptions we quickly run out of words and adjectives, such as beautiful, awe-inspiring, magnificient, etc. Here language, even in the hands of the poet, will never be able to paint the subtle hues and atmospheres, the way the grass yields underfoot, the way colours percolate into different shapes to form new structures, the way new emotions are brought into awareness by the sight of strange landscapes or mindbending features never before seen.”
Consistent with all other OBE reporters as well as the many mediumship reports, Ziewe finds that the afterlife is not limited to the humdrum heaven and horrific hell of orthodox religion. Rather there are many realms or layers, as he calls them. “Afterlife states are as numerous as human beings, and as complex,” he offers, going on to explain that in the lower realms, which on one exploration he found dark, murky, and seemingly polluted, there is much depravity and despair. However, contrary to the teachings of orthodoxy, the individual can progress to higher and higher realms.
Also consistent with many other reports, Ziewe concludes that a person’s mindset determines his environment when he/she dies. “Unlike physical life, our surroundings will be furnished with the content of our subconscious,” he writes, going on to say that “We will find all our actions manifested in our non-physical environment once the protective capsule of our physical body has been exited for good.”
Ziewe’s explorations include visits with his mother, who did not appear as he remembered her. He also met a former prostitute and drug addict in the lower realms, an artist, a suicide bomber, and an alien being. Overall, this is a very fascinating read.
As a long time researcher with NDE survivors I was quite interested in Ziewe's explorations which did not support the majority of NDE survivors. NDE survivors usually have loving, exhilirating contacts in an amazing and beautiful place. They make statements such as, "I have never felt more loved," or " I hated coming back it was so perfect."
Ziewe blows this euphoric view of the afterlife stating that water seeks its own subconscious level. In other words if you pass over with a boat load of issues, the environment and people you live with have the same energetic vibration. In order to move out of the level you naturally gravitate toward you must begin to resolve your issues. There is no rescue until you become open to change and some growth. Bummer! Apparently your subconscious mind becomes the dominant operating mind in his version of afterlife.
In an NDE that I once read the individual said that he had "issues" when he passed over but they put him in some sort of device that remodeled (?) his energy level. When they resuscitated him he completely changed his life and perspective. Now one possibility could be that NDE still have time left on earth to change their behavior where Ziewe's explorations seemed to be mostly with those already dead with no chance of return to earth.
Sooo pick your poison! I loved this book, I love that ziewe had something new to say, I loved his sincere desire to understand and explore and this book will serve as a reference for me as I try to synthesize NDE experiences with his.

Reading this book, there is no doubt concerning the sincerity of Jurgen's claims; that is often the obstacle for the cynic in me but I have no doubts here, call it my gut feeling. As for the reality of it all, well who knows?? Ive always had a feeling of a bigger picture so I'm very open to all possibilities. I think my next step is to go beyond books and attempt these experiences for myself hence the William Buhlman book I have just ordered. Only a few weeks ago I saw a Horizon programme speculating the very real existence of parallel worlds and literally infinite versions of ourselves all living out every possibility that there could be. Certainly makes the possibility that our minds cannot perish with the death of our bodies seem very credible.
Buy alongside Multidimensional Man , Buhlman's Adventures In The Afterlife and Robert Monroe's Ultimate Journey. Id also suggest Anthony Borgia's World Unseen book. A little quaint in parts but it was written many years ago and predates much of what people like Jurgen Ziewe have reported.
Also I would recommend Jurgen Ziewe's rather splendid and very informative website ;-)
If you have watched him on YouTube then you will know what a humble and sincere man he seems. He has put together more of his experiences of out of body and meditation travels in to other realms and after you read them, I believe you will not think the same way about life any more.
I've read literally hundreds of books on the afterlife, NDE experiences, medium testimonies and more, but this rates as one of my top five for sure. I can't recommend it enough and also Jurgens book Multindimensional man, which was his first. Excellent, thought provoking and enlightening stuff! I would love to have a one to one meet up with him, what a great conversation we could have!
This man seems a humble person who has been able to experience parallel existences, kinds of multiverses which physics theorises about but nobody I know has experienced.I have heard Thich Nhat Hahn teaching about how our "environment is our retribution" , those are his words and he said them more than once.Russel Williams , in his book talks about different realms and so do many other teachers of spirituality. So this account is not one which is bizare.
One of the realms is so similar to here that its inhabitants are not aware that they have died, this is the realm which seems many humans go to and indeed if you look around so many are kind of asleep now, unaware of so much that is going on and engrossed in their mundane world.They are not bad people , just sleepwalking through life.Another realm is a kind of fantastic holiday park which exists to give those who need to serve others a way of doing just that.The account of one who had been in a kind of hell and had redeemed himself was a warning bell that to live in a selfish way will have a retribution effect.We should try to serve others whilst we are here and that is the message I take from this book.
I have been at odds with our societies 'material reductionist' view of life (and death) for some time
