Ever since I was a young girl I have asked the question 'what is the purpose of life?' I've always been interested in why we are here and what happens to us when we die. I have read hundreds of stories about Near Death Experiences and I can't count how many videos I have watched. It is a fascinating subject and one of my best resources is NDERF.
I had read about David Ditchfield quite a while ago and also watched an interview he did. Recently I came across another interview with David and I purchased his book Shine on The Story. David's book is so interesting I read it in one day, I could not put it down. I reached out to David on Instagram and asked him would he do an interview with me, and to my delight he agreed. You can see the interview below. In a nutshell, David was run over by a train, he then had a near death experience (left his body but was fully aware of what was happening in a new realm) and came back to spread the message of love. As well, David acquired skills of an artist and he has composed classical music even though he can't read or write music. By the way David is dyslexic.
Enjoy the interview and more about David and some of his artwork is shared on this post too.
David Ditchfield is an artist, composer and author. In 2006, he was dragged under a speeding train in a freak accident. As the surgeons fought to save him, he had a profound Near-Death Experience. He later realised that he had acquired astonishing new abilities. The first, an ability to create dramatic paintings of what he’d seen in the Afterlife. The second, the ability to compose classical music, despite being unable to read or write any musical notation. His debut symphony premiered at a sell-out orchestral concert to a standing ovation. He has since composed further classical works, also premiered at sell out performances and continues to paint and compose in Cambridge, UK.
