IANDS Launch Pad Series – A Veteran’s NDE and Path to Revealing It

Chase Skylar DeMayo is a US Air Force Veteran who died April 1st 2008 and was sent back to spread laughter, light, love and joy with the world. After a Near-Death Experience through cardiac arrest in 2008 while stationed at Langley Air Force Base, Chase kept his Near-Death Experience private in fear of judgement and retribution for twelve years until now… hear this remarkable, spirit-filled man on Saturday, February 6, 10 am PST (1 pm EST)

Are Veteran’s more likely to have NDE’s while less likely to come forward?
with Chase Skylar DeMayo

I took it in and realized I was in Heaven, watching what happiness was. We didn’t exchange spoken words back and forth like a traditional conversation. The joy itself seemed to be the conversation; the light and the love that was flowing through me was filled with information and memories.

Jesus turned to me and said with another smile on his face, “You have to go back now.”

I took another look around. I remember feeling content with his guidance—as if this was all part of the plan.

“I need you to go back and remember to share laughter, joy, love, and light,” he said.

When he said those words, it was if they were being tattooed into me, or digested into my heart. Those words hit me like a truck.

Before I could respond, he started to grin again. It was the type of grin you have right before a laugh starts to come out. There was such a sense of fun and humor during my time spent in the garden. To me, it felt like the relationship you have with a best friend or sibling or spouse, where even the slightest notion could send you into peals of laughter.

His grin was my last memory before gravity set in and the weight of the world started to set into my human body again. It was obvious I was no longer in Heaven, where everything was so free and weightless.

What would a 21 year old do after such a clear, defined, and transformative experience while in the Air Force? Nothing. I told no one about my experience. I joked about dying with friends, but I knew if I told anyone about my experiences in Heaven that they would think I was either crazy, lying, or both. I couldn’t tell people I had met Jesus. Who was I to share that? A church might look at me and say, “He hasn’t earned his right to enjoy such an experience.” My friends and family might think it was all for attention. So, for 12 years, it stayed a secret from almost everyone but my close friends and family. Until now.

Christian Theme NDE/STE Discussion Group

Individuals often report having a being they identify as Jesus in their near-death or related spiritual experiences. This group is intended to provide a safe, validating opportunity to share individual experiences. This is not a forum to debate or deny another person’s experiences. All are welcome for the mission of loving and respecting individual experiences and differences of interpretation from religious themed experiences.

Title: A sharing group for those in, or from, a Christian community who have had, or are interested in, near-death or similar experiences.

Purpose: To provide a safe environment for those in, or from, such a community to hear and share these extraordinary experiences.

Are you a Christian who wonders how or if your NDE or other Spiritually Transformative Experience aligns with your faith? Are you struggling to integrate your experience and your religion? Come explore these questions with others having similar concerns. We will share our experiences and struggles and joys and dreams. We come from many different Christian traditions and will therefore hold a variety of views, so we commit to respecting all perspectives and seeing Christ in each other. This is a safe place of non-judgment. There is also no proselytizing. With open hearts we can discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among and within us. While this Sharing Session contains Christian content, it is open to all who feel called to join us.

About the facilitator

The Rev. Stephanie Chase Bradbury has been an Episcopal Priest for 25 years and has professionally counseled many people who’ve had NDE’s and STE’s. She herself has had a number of Spiritually Transformative Experiences beginning at age 6. Stephanie is drawn to the bright overlap between matter and spirit, and how life in this reality is intertwined with the transcendent. She feels called to act as a translator to a world that is often blind to the astonishing wonder of All That Is, and help facilitate the processing of those who have been touched by the extraordinary. Stephanie has led retreats, spoken at Boston IANDS gatherings, and been interviewed for the Leap from Within podcast. While grounded in the Christian tradition, Stephanie welcomes insight both from within organized religions and beyond. You can learn more at Grannypriest.com.
