23 Mar The Astrology of a Near Death Experience
by Tiffany Harelik
It’s been said that there are many moments when we are destined to cross over – but did you know these moments have similar astrological components? Today I’m sharing the astrology of my near death experience with you on the blog. And if you missed the discussion on the astrological components of when our mom’s crossed over – you can still catch that here on instagram.
When I had a near death experience at age 14, I didn’t have words for the experience. One minute we were driving West on the hot Texas highway, journeying towards Mexico. The next I was lying on the pavement watching the scene from a birds’ perspective high in the Skies. The real life movie playing out beneath me was gruesome. My attention was brought to a higher realm.
In this realm, there was peace, calm, and stillness. I experienced myself as an orb of light, and could see other bright liquid light orbs dancing around me. I knew these orbs to be other Souls—and there was a knowing that we were all part of the life force energy that make up God.
In 1994, we didn’t have cell phones – we had to wait in our agony until someone else drove up behind us. They would have to drive to another location to use a phone and call 911. A helicopter was sent for my aunt. As I watched from above, an emergency worker approached my body. She said, “I need you to breathe,” and without choice—my body obeyed. I took an incoherent breath—and in that moment—excruciating pain flooded in. Ready or not, I was back, strapped to a board and headed to a hospital.
I couldn’t stop thinking about the other realm. I couldn’t unsee it. I knew it was a real experience.

This car wreck was more than a wreck. It was a psychic initiation. I was given a gift to be able to connect from this world to the next. And now I can share that with you.
I began studying astrology six years later in 2000 – a study that gave me the first deep understanding of myself. I then earned a Masters in Health Psychology because I wanted to continue to study mind-body health. From there I studied with the worlds best mediums including Mavis Patilla, Janet Nohavec, Tony Stockwell, Lisa Williams, and more.
It has been said there are several ways to become psychic and that one is through trauma. But I don’t recommend a car wreck to catapult you into psychic development. Astrology enthusiasts may notice my North Node in Virgo – I have a love for breaking things down into practical, step by step, procedures. So in the moment of this car wreck – a psychic medium was born. I was gifted an ability that I can now teach others.
