Abusive Childhood Experience Score
Felitti's ACE score is the first 10 questions. I added the eleventh about NDE, OOB, seeing-of-the-light experiences because I learned that these energetic shifts change the body. I also learned that you must ask these ten questions of patients directly.
NDEs, and OOBs are my personal interests from working with NDE and OOB survivors and cancer patients. Melvin Morse, MD, Seattle pediatrican studied children who have had NDEs and Light Seeing events and found: they, both no longer fear death and they find a 'mission' in life. P.M.H. Atwater, during her NDE was told to 'write a book' (she wrote 3), reported that adults who survive NDE, OOB require 7 years to 're-organize' themselves. Patients are 'spooked' afterwards and they have no one to talk about their 'weird' experiences. When you listen to them it is called SUPPORT. Knowing the ACE score can help you understand where their behaviors may come from.
I have come to believe that these energetic connections may be a form of 'life saving energy' from 'heaven'? 'An angelic force'? Now several doctors have written about their own NDEs and about working in the ED and getting 'messages' from their dying patients. You may call 'IT' crazy- until 'IT' happens to you. Be prepared! As health providers you MUST be open to listening to the patient's story, and hearing their emotions, and NOT be degrading or judgemental of them. We do not know all the answers or even all the questions.
