I See Beyond Their Eyes
How a near death experience brought one
woman to her spiritual path
THE EARLY YEARS
Elaine Resniks early years were spent living with her family in the South Bronx of New York. She later moved to Hicksville, a suburban residential community on Long Island 30 miles East of New York City. Throughout her life, Elaine was
aware that she had some kind of special gifts. Family and friends were often
amazed at how often she knew things before they happened,
yet she was never entirely comfortable with what she felt, saw and heard.
For many years she questioned these coincidences not knowing
quite what to think or willing to acknowledge nor accept the extent of
LESLIES OPERATION, 1996
Almost as though she was watching a TV screen, the operating room appeared on the wall of the room. Elaine could clearly see all the equipment, doctors, nurses, and her friend Leslie. Drawing a breath of surprise she turned to Marie and whispered Oh my, I am in the room with them. I can see and hear them. She saw the doctor make a hooking motion with his right arm and hand and say Its not working! Its not working! She could see the Doctor was perspiring heavily as the nurse wiped his forehead, suggesting to Elaine that there was a problem with the operation. She felt relieved when the nurse swabbed his brow a second time as he didnt appear to be perspiring as much. The third time there was very little moisture on his brow and Elaine felt sure the operation had been successful. Marie listened and watched as Elaine repeated over and over what she had seen.
Shaking and excited Elaine was unaware that what she had been describing
to Marie with words and hand motions was not in fact a projection on
the wall but that it was visible only within her own minds
eye. A tall gentleman sitting on the couch near the wall was also
a witness to Elaines odd behavior.
Several days later during a follow-up visit, Leslie told his doctor, a well-known urologist at Winthrop Hospital in Mineola, New York, what Elaine had seen during the operation. Very interested, the doctor asked her to describe what she had seen. Elaine told him, I knew it was a difficult operation because I saw you perspiring. I saw the nurse wipe your forehead three times. The doctor laughed and told her she was right. He said, It was a difficult operation but I wasnt perspiring. In this type of procedure, the pressure often causes a patient to urinate and thats what you saw - three times. Elaine continued, I also heard you say, Its not working, its not working. I cant get it to work and you made a hooking motion with your right arm and hand. The doctor then explained that the laser wasnt quite ready when he needed it. He also had to move the instrument in a hooking motion in order to catch the stone in the basket to remove it.
Needless to say, the doctor was surprised at all Elaine knew about the operation. She had explained details that only those inside the room that night could have known and she knew it all. At that point the doctor shared with her an experience he had while a student in Italy. The day before his oral exams, answers to questions, not part of the suggested studies, came to him in thought. He knew three out of five answers and his study partner was astounded each time this happened and so was the doctor! In light of this account, Elaine felt comfortable that the Doctor would be receptive to her intuitive perceptions. She said today, sitting across from me in your waiting room is a little Italian man who has a serious problem in his genital area. He is very worried and in great discomfort. The doctor knew the patient however his schedule was so backed up, he did not have the time to continue the conversation. Elaine suggested they continue it at another time to which the Doctor agreed. Two weeks later, Elaine had a dream in which she saw the urologist. She called the doctor the next day and said to him, I saw you in a dream. What were you doing? He answered I was talking about you to my staff before an operation. I told them about your ability and how you witnessed Leslies operation. Elaine said, No, no theres something else. Who were you operating on? The doctor answered, The little Italian man you saw in my office and you were correct, he had prostate cancer.
THE FOLLOWING YEAR, 1997
ELAINES EYES, 1999
Elaine continued to complain to doctor, family and friends while she was recovering. A secondary cataract formed and was removed with no difficulty. However, she continued to verbalize that something was wrong with her vision. Desperate, Elaine went to several ophthalmologists hoping one of them would recognize the symptoms she was experiencing. Each doctor said the implants were perfect and complimented her surgeons ability. They all recommended she return to the original surgeon, which she eventually did. He finally agreed to attempt the procedure a second time. During this surgery Elaine felt as if she were standing next to him and watching as she kept saying repeatedly, No, you dont have it yet. Suddenly, the Doctor did something unusual, something he had never done before. Taking her off the chair, the Doctor and his nurse hurried Elaine down the hallway to another room. Even before she sat in the other chair Elaine knew and verbalized to the doctor and nurse that this additional procedure would indeed correct her problem. The next day, while sitting alone in a diner, she realized she could once again see properly. She rushed home to call the doctor and thank him, overjoyed, shaking and crying.
Elaine hadnt wanted to be a complaining patient to a doctor, whose work his own collegues would later compliment as a perfect implant, yet her sense that something was wrong was entirely accurate. It seems that there was a tiny piece of cataract behind the implant causing the problem. Her insistence that something was not right caused the doctor to invent a new medical technique that successfully corrected an almost imperceptible problem. Elaines ophthalmologist, Dr. Sajid Malik, told her he now uses this new special technique often, with great success and plans to write an article for a medical journal describing the procedure.
In December of 1999, The Eyes of Learning was featuring a well known author and hypnotherapist by the name of Dolores Cannon as a speaker on its monthly calendar. Elaine was able to schedule a private hypnotherapy session with Ms. Cannon. While regression of a patient to a point earlier in ones life is now a common practice in hypnotherapy, Ms. Cannons specialty takes patients to previous lifetimes in what is known as past-life regression. With much pleading, Elaine was able to convince Dolores to bring her back hypnotically to May of 1974 to relive those events Elaine could not remember. Under hypnosis, Dolores brought Elaine back to the hospital room where she lay gravely ill but, much to her surprise, Elaine was both laying on the bed AND hovering near the ceiling! She was surrounded by row upon row of what looked like glowing light bulbs that she knew to be beings of light! Dressed in long white robes, Elaine recognized other beings with white hair as the same spiritual master teachers she had been seeing over years of private meditation. When she looked down from the ceiling, she saw and heard the Doctors in conversation with her daughter Lori. The Doctors were explaining that they would have to replace all of Elaines blood and they did not think that she would live. Regretably, the wrong blood had been sent initially and they would need to wait for a replacement. When it finally arrived, Elaine saw the blood being removed and knew it was contaminated with the illness of soon to be death. Then the words of the white Masters said that she would live, it would be a miracle and she had a soul path. Elaine prayed that if she got well she would do Gods work.
Upon awaking from her hypnotic trance Elaine realized that she had had a near death experience twenty-five years ago. She had been given a second chance because there was something she still needed to do before her time on earth was over. This provided Elaine with the answer she was looking for and the courage to move forward.
