A Garden Next Door: How One Woman Was Struck by Lightning, Talked to God, and Came Back to Dream the Future.
Jeffrey J. Kripal
How might methods from humanities infuse the future course of parapsychology? Jeff’s upcoming book Lightning Bolts and Strange Words: A Shocking Near-Death Experience and Its Paranormal Currents presents the case of Elizabeth Krohn, a contemporary Houston woman who was struck by lightning in the parking lot of her synagogue on the first anniversary of her grandfather’s death. An elaborate NDE ensued, after which she began to notice new psychical capacities, including the ability to see energy fields around people and the ability to see major plane crashes and natural disasters in her dreams before they happened. He will give a few examples of the latter and discuss the time-stamped emails she learned to send herself immediately after the nightmares as a means of establishing the authenticity of the precognitions, stressing the importance of mixing methods to plumb these sorts of human experiences.
