Can a person who has just passed away see or hear people around them?

Perception of the Recently Deceased When you die, you leave your body and can see and hear everything from outside your body. So yes. "Can a person who has passed away see or hear people around them?"

Yes, I'm not sure for how long, but as you leave your shell you are able to see and hear everything around you.

Best Wishes... I have read several books were people have passed away and been revieved. I have found two that I believe are true accounts. In one the gental man tells of wanting to go home and tring to get there and he was able to see and hear around him. The book was "Return from Tomarro" by George G. Richie.

Here is also my logic on this. When there was the war in heaven didn't it say 1/3 of the hosts of heaven followed lucifer. The were cast here to the Earth to act as opposition for us while we were here they don't have bodies they are spirits and they tempt us while we are here. They can see and here what we do.

The angels God has sent were able to speak with the prophets and or apostels they were sent to speak to. When you die your spirit leaves your body and it is still you. You simply have been separated from your body like everyone since Adam has. Even Christ died,(He concured death,physical and siritual),so we can repent and have the resurection. Why wouldn't you be able to see and hear whats going on. The vail between the living and the spirit is there so we have to exersize some faith and to see if we will follow the Lord of our own choice. Haven't prophets seen beyond this vail. That vail no longer covers our eyes when we passaway we should see both sides befor going to face our lord and redeemer.

Lastly, My sister saw my great grandmother after she had past and it was to say good by. She was 6 years old and knew about the death befor my mom and dad did. take it for what its worth. The honest answer is that we don't know for certain and can only make assumptions from what we do understand about what happens to us physically at death. We know that as death occurs the brain and nervous system will quickly be incapacitated by lack of oxygen and its cells will start to die themselves within just a couple of minutes. To what extent they continue to function during that short time I have no idea but I, personally, would not expect the physical body to see or hear for more than a few seconds after death occurs. The soul, however, I believe, will continue to be aware of everything around it as it leaves its physical body behind it. However, this is something that none of us can actually know until the instant that death arrives.When we shed this physical body which is simply the vehicle we are using to experience with for this lifetime, we, the real self still existing in subconscious mind or soul, have full awareness being no longer restricted by physical existence with limited senses, so the answer is yes. While in the physical we are limited to what we can perceive through the five senses, therefore we are caught up in the elusion which seems real because of our limited visiblilty. Waking up, so to speak is a choice which can only be made by an individual since we have free will to choose to see or to follow the blind who cannot see either. Inner sight is available to anyone who wants to put in the effort to develop it. The information, for those who are serious about wanting to know instead of speculating or taking someone else's word for what is, is available.

Considering the fact that we are more than a physical construction like a stone or piece of metal, one has to asume that dieing is the process in which several layers that where working in conjunction with each other now fail to do so.

In most cases its because the physical layer simply malfunctions. a stroke, impact trauma etc etc. After such an occurrence the other layers will disengage over a period of time.

Roughly one could say that the whole proces takes about one third of the period one has lived before this proces is completed. Individual cases may vary greatly.

Self awareness can be retained for roughly the period one was able to stay awake as a healthy person in his or her prime. let's say 3 day's. But also with this fase it may vary greatly in that some may retain self awarenes for 2 day's while others may retain this for a period of 5 day's. Everybody is able to retain selfawareness for atleast several hours. Retaining self awareness after this period demands trained skill's.

yes. (don't say anything bad about uncle george at the funeral.) ;)

Cheshi's :

Yes, I do indeed know for a fact that you can see and hear everyone and everything around you after you die. Many people think otherwise, that you die and nothing happens after that. You go to either Heaven or Hell and that's it. But actually, you stay in a paralell universe in which you can switch from one another any time you want (Most likely through portals). My personal studies have proven this, and I'm glad I did so.
