A woman claimed that she dies three times a month and meets famous people in the afterlife.
Beverley Gilmour, 57, who suffered brain trauma in her 20s, claimed to have unusual experiences with the dead.
Gilmour, who suffers the bizarre experiences about three times a month, claimed to have met Jesus and Walt Disney.
She said that she has developed a “private relationship” with Jesus since her first bizarre rendezvous in the 1980s.
She claimed that doctors have diagnosed her with a disorder of consciousness, a term usually loosely used for people in vegetative states or in comas.
Gilmour claimed that during these experiences she can feel her heart stopping and her body slowly starting to shut down.
She then feels herself physically leaving her body before having her interactions with the deceased
.Gilmour told Daily Mail, “I have met with Jesus. I have brought back things and then I will go into a trance and start writing.”
While talking about meeting Walt Disney, the self-proclaimed spiritualist said, “He was showing stories and when I met him. There was an amazing building and the wood felt alive and well preserved.”
She continued, “When I came back I would go back into a trance and write down his stories and draw pictures of everything he has shown me. He showed me these characters and I became one of his characters and lived out one of his stories.”
Gilmour added, “I would sit and listen to him and he would appear with these characters and he would tell me the names of these characters and their personalities and what they did in life, where they came from and their origins.”
The mum-of-three also claimed to have met her dead parents during these episodes.
Describing an experience with her father, she said, “The first time I met him he looked 52, which was when he died. The second time I met him he looked about 30. He looked so happy and so radiant. I was so proud that he was my dad when I came back from that.”
Detailing another experience, she said, “I saw him and it was all white around us. He was speaking to me but looking to the side of me and he said ‘learn to do as you are told Beverley’ and that is all he said. ‘I came out and was like “Is that it, no lottery numbers dad?”
Gilmour said that her experiences do not always make sense to her at first and it can take her some time to understand them later.
Researchers from the Coma Science Group at the University of Liège in Belgium are working with Gilmour to understand her condition better.
