Proof Of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey Into The Afterlife with Dr. Eben Alexander III

DR.EBEN ALEXANDER III: Proof Of Heaven is Dr. Eben Alexander III’s #1 New York Times Bestselling book about his near-death experience. A Harvard and Duke associated academic neurosurgeon, Dr. Eben Alexander’s brain was suddenly attacked by a rare illness. In fact, it was the part of the brain that essentially makes us human, thereby making his near-death experience much more compelling to scientists and skeptics because his brain was incapable of imagination or hallucination. For seven days he lay in a coma while journeying into the afterlife. Guided by a spiritual being yet having no memory of his physical (human) existence, Eben learned about life after death, our purpose for being here, the power of prayer, insights about why evil is allowed to exist in our world, and so much more. I’m honored to share this in-depth interview with one of the most likable and eloquent scientists of our time.” ~ Bob Olson, Afterlife TV


Eben Alexander III, M.D. talks about his near-death experience.

Proof Of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey Into The Afterlife


Dr. Alexander, a renowned academic neurosurgeon, spent 54 years honing his scientific worldview. He thought he knew how the brain and mind worked. A transcendental Near-Death Experience (NDE), in which he was driven to the brink of death and spent a week deep in coma from an inexplicable brain infection, changed all of that – completely!

He was shocked to find the hyper-reality of that spiritual realm, which many had reported in NDEs. He has spent the last four years reconciling his rich spiritual experience with contemporary physics and cosmology. His spiritual experience is totally consistent with the leading edges of scientific understanding today. Together, science and spirituality will thrive in a symbiosis offering the most profound insight into fundamental Truth, yielding unimaginable power. The keystone is in global progression of individual conscious awakening.

Many in both the scientific and religious (or spiritual) realms must denounce their addiction to prejudiced, closed-minded, dogmatic beliefs, in order to open our awareness to this novel synthesis of understanding Truth. By probing deeply into our own consciousness, we transcend the limitations of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm. The spiritual realm is real. Seamless blending of science and spirituality will occur.

    Hi Bob;
    Well you have done it again! Wonderful interview. I have read his great book and this interview even gives it more power. Unknowing to anyone but me, this interview was important to me in a personal way. I had a small question I had prayed about and now know the answer . I certainly did not look for the answer here but was surprised when I got it. thanks for your contribution to our world Janie

    • Bob Olson says:

      Thank you Janie,

      I appreciate that. And I’m glad you got the answer you were seeking.

      Bob Olsen ,as a young kid i saw many a strange things i cannot explain,but as i got older less and less ,about 4years. Ago i was at a park in hernando ,fl. Walking and felt a strange presence,i went back about a few days after that,and when i went to sleep i saw this fella about 5’7 thin with longhair walked up to me in my dreamon the trail in the park ,i instantly woke up with a shock., i came to find out later from apoliceman that a fella shot himself there in that park about 3months earlier.,what do you hear off about ghosts that appear in your dreams.?!

      • Bob Olson says:

        Hi Daniel,

        There are a lot of conflicting ideas around this. But what I’ll say is that there is something called an energy imprint, which often occurs around some traumatic event. Basically, it’s a memory in time that keeps playing like a video on a loop. Your sensitivity to these things may have picked up on this energy imprint of the man who shot himself. So you might not necessarily be picking up on the person in spirit, but rather this energy photograph or video of the event around the shooting.

        People in spirit of course do visit people in their dreams all the time, usually loved ones with whom they want to communicate. These are called dream visitations. But that’s another subject altogether. You certainly could have picked up on the spirit of a person, as well, when you felt that presence. Maybe it was the man who took his own life; maybe not. You might want to watch my video on The Myth Of Earthbound Spirits; you might find it interesting.

        Ask ten people this same question, Daniel, and you could get ten different answers. Often I tell people to trust their own intuition on what they feel it is. Regardless, it suggests to me that you might even have some abilities in the psychic or medium realm. You might want to take a class to learn how to improve and control these abilities. And it might be fun for you. Thanks for your comment.


  2. Audrey Robles says:

    Dear Mr. Olson,

    I would like to thank you sharing this meaningful interview as it personally touches me. I witnessed several confirmations that allowed me to feel some peace of mind as I too think with a scientific mind and attitude. It was hard for me also to understand that things are not as they seem and that there is a power that governs us and this universe. I wrestled with is for many years and not until recently have I decide to delve into this area and realize that there is peace of mind in doing so. Again, thank you.


    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Audrey,

      You wrote that so beautifully. You are welcome. I appreciate you sharing that here. My best wishes to you.


  3. Charlie says:

    I’m very thankful that you did this interview. Coming from a scientific background myself its nice to hear someone like Dr.Eben talk about his experience with such kindness, open mindedness, and rationality. I think this might be the push in the right direction I had been asking for so many months ago. Thank you.

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Charlie,

      That’s great to hear. The world is lucky to have such a courageous man tell his story. It’s quite a social risk for a medical doctor to share his near-death experience with the world. I’m pleased to hear that it was helpful to you. Thanks for letting me know.


  4. nooshin says:

    Hi Bob,

    I had to listen to Dr Eben more than once. because in every sentence, he had something new to teach. New and amazing information with his extraordinary power of explaining. When listening for the second time with my eyes closed and focused, i felt that, i was actually there with him, and that was a comforting feeling and strong confirmation for me, because of the challenge, that i am facing now.

    Confirming of our souls and consciousness being eternal, by a respectful,most educated and intelligent person like Dr Eben Alexander, is A GREAT DEAL to me and to many many people out there, whom either grieving or seeking the truth about life. i can’t wait to get the book and looking forward to seeing more interviews of him.

    Thank you so much Bob. seriously, what would i do without you and your educational website !? You are the main reason that i was introduced to a whole new world and every time i leave a comment, i feel like, I need to remind you of it. You are a great person.


    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Nooshin,

      I agree with your comments about Eben. I like the idea of listening with eyes closed. Thank you for reminding me that this work is meaningful and important. Your words mean a lot to me.

      Warmest wishes for health and happiness,

  5. tim says:

    Hi, Bob. I really enjoyed the interview but do you think there is any chance of getting Eben back on ?
    I would personally like more detail, more clarification on his recollections about the place he calls the gateway. Bearing in mind that there were blossomimg flowers etc does he think there is some kind of celestial eco system in that dimension….? That kind of thing. Thanks.

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Tim,

      Eben did say that he’ll be coming out with another book that discusses the deeper lessons and insights of his journey. But that could be years from now. If I were you, I’d try emailing him via his website. I don’t know if you’ll get a response, but it can’t hurt to try. Good luck.


  6. tim says:

    Thanks, Bob. I might do that. Off topic have you ever thought about interviewing Andy Petro (NDE) It’s only a suggestion of course, best wishes tim.

  7. labelledominique says:

    A wonderful, delightful interview, yet again. Thank you.

  8. Joanne says:

    Thanks so much for another inspiring interview Bob! This one is extraordinary as this surgeon does an about face in his beliefs based on his experience during coma. I truly believe it was all meant to happen so he could bring this message to the world. And thanks to you he has! Great job and thank you again for all you do. Your work brings so much comfort to those of us who grieve and are constantly seeking knowledge.

    • Bob Olson says:

      Thank you Joanne,

      I’m glad you enjoyed Dr. Eben Alexander’s interview. He really is quite amazing. I appreciate your kind comments.

      By the way, he’s also going to be on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday on December 9th at 10am both Eastern and Pacific. You might want to check that out.


  9. Antonio Leite says:

    As usual Bob, your interview with Dr. Eben Alexander was a gift as well as a great opportunity to educate all of us who have the privilege to follow the extraordinary work you handle through your remarkable website and the AfterLife TV.

    Although I have not yet read Dr. Alexander’s book, which I will definitely do so, listening to his interview I was able to perceive the greatness of the message comprised in it and the excellence of the way in which he delivers this message, with a great deal of sincerity, lack of self-interest and humbleness. In my opinion this approach bears a great weight in the importance of the underlying message on his book, which along with his great intellect and scientific background makes his NDE one of the most interesting on their field of study.

    These matters are of great importance for the future of humankind, for our civilization is at the dawning of a New Era, the Cosmic Era or the Era of the Spirit, where we will be able to throw away the chains that have kept us as preys of a brutal and annihilating system of materialism which can only drive humanity to an unavoidable nothingness. It is up to us to exercise our own free will in order to get out of this vicious cycle of materialistic annihilation by educating ourselves towards these pressing matters of the Life After Death, Reincarnation, Near Death Experience, Mediumship and Spirituality in general. The voices of our beloved ones and many other friends from the other side of the veil are constantly calling us and offering us comfort and hope for a better future, it is up to us to pay attention, listen and join them in this great and rewarding adventure.

    By reading the messages above one can realize how important are the works carried out by these messengers of the New Era, the Era of the Spirit, names such as Dr. Eben Alexander, Dr. Kenneth Ring, Dr. Brian Weiss, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, Allan Kardec, James Van Praagh, Francisco Candido Xavier, Dr. Raymond Mood Jr., Victor Zammit and many others out there sowing the seeds for hope and redemption.

    To close my message I would like to congratulate you My Dear Bob for the excellence of the work you have done throughout these years, which enables you to have also a special place in the above list of the Messengers of the Cosmic Era.

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Antonio,

      I’m most grateful for your articulate comments and kind words. You have a wonderful ability to communicate with writing. I’ll do my best to keep doing what I do. Thanks to people like you who take the time to tell me how my work benefits them, I remain fulfilled and enthusiastic about it.

      Thank you,

  10. sherman niamehr says:

    MR. Olson, as I have been searching for many years a simple answer, simple acknowledgment from somewhere, anywhere, that indeed, you are loved unconditionally by a greater power than just a birth to death experience. That in fact, every human breath is connected to one another to some measure. And the way you make us aware of our souls and the sensitivity and importance of it.

    Please Mr. Olson, keep up this great and PRICELESS work you perform.

    Thank you,

  11. DJ says:

    Hi, Bob & thank you (& Dr Alexander) for this wonderful interview! I understand that another book will probably be written in the near future. [A 2nd book going into much more detail of his journey] …but I’m very curious, & very hopeful, in wondering if Dr Eben’s ORIGINAL manuscript might be available to the public…either now, or at a later date? Perhaps on his personal website as an ebook for website members? I would LOVE to read the original in it’s entirety…beFORE all of the editing down to the existing book form. I believe that MOST of us would immensely enjoy reading every word or thought that Dr Eben could share with us regarding his incredible experience. If this is NOT possible would you happen to have any further info regarding the release of a 2nd book?

    You’ve did an AWESOME job with this interview Bob.
    Sincere thanks for all of your work in this field.

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi DJ,

      Thanks for those lovely compliments. I agree that many people would love to read that manuscript, but I don’t expect it will go public as so many people would criticize Eben for the unedited writing. He’s now such a celebrated author that everything he writes and says is up for scrutiny (I know, that’s a sad statement about our society). As for his second book, I’ve heard no news. But I would expect a follow up this year or next (2014 or 2015) in order to keep the momentum of his popularity and success going. I’ll announce anything I know as soon as I learn of it. And we’ll have Eben back for another interview at that time, I’m sure.

      Warmest wishes to you,

  12. Ornella says:

    Hi Bob! I have just recently in so many months found your show and I feel so blessed to have found it! I tweet you all the time about how wonderful your Interviews are, I just can’t seem to get enough. I am a 7 life Path and this definitely feeds my soul! Thank you for all you do! I am writing here today to write about Dr. Eben Alexander, I have come to adore him & his story! I have read the book, just looking at the book when I see it in my house brings me back to the feelings I got when I read it. Every time I watch him on an interview I start to choke up & cry when he talks about his sister, you can sense the love that he experienced on the incredible journey to the other side. You can’t make those feelings happen in the way they can be seen through the internet or TV you can tell Dr. Eben has been through some kind of Loving & Evolving Transformation! I absolutely love his story & I Believe in it 100% Thanks again to you Bob for having this amazing interviews for all of us!! ox

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Ornella,

      Eben’s story really is wonderful. I fully understand why it lifts your spirit. Thanks so much for sharing how it makes you feel. We need more things like that in our lives.


  13. Yaegerj says:

    I love his story, and think at all the arrogant physicians who would love the opportunity to dispute his every claim.
