Publisher's Summary

This is an amazing true story of a female civilian employee of the Army Corps of Engineers in Basrah and Nasiriyah, Iraq. She was riding in a truck with men when a roadside bomb destroyed the vehicle. Her body was so severely damaged, there was no possible way she could live. She vividly recounts her near-death experience when she went out of her body, to the spirit world. There it was decided that her work on Earth was not done, and with the help of spirit guides they repaired the body so she could reenter it. She retained the conscious memory of what happened, and during the time in the hospital more details returned. This is the amazing story of survival in wartime conditions. This has happened to many others in Iraq, but how many remember the spirit side of the experience?

Before this experience, Sudman was dubious about anything that smacked of the paranormal. This experience made her a believer. She shares her story here for the first time, to demonstrate that the paranormal is normal and to assist others who have had similar experiences.

This is an audiobook for anyone interested in near-death and out-of-body experiences. It is one of the first such books to come out of the Iraq conflict.

Fascinating Book by Natalie Sudman

What made the experience of listening to Application of Impossible Things the most enjoyable?

Great to listen, means I could multitask as I am learning about Natalie and her wisodm

What other book might you compare Application of Impossible Things to and why?

The after life of Billy Fingers, but I felt this had more comprehensive information about HOW we create both in non physical and here on the physical plane.I think its the most comprehensive book I have read/listen to on this subject.

Some of her words and sentences structures were a bit beyond my literary skills, but it's great to learn

What aspect of Jenna Petterson’s performance would you have changed?

Would have liked to listen to the authors own voice. It sounded a bit like someone reading, instead of telling the story of their life, which would be more compelling

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes

Any additional comments?

WONDERFUL!!!

Heavy stuff with no fanfare

Any additional comments?

I bought this in both hardcopy and audible. Natalie makes it look easy to write and deliver such intense information clearly and succinctly. I am hoping she will write another book.

Not what I expected ... In a good way!

Natalie has an amazing experience. No Angels or demons or whatever you'd normally get, but more higher consciousness.... More logic... More mater of fact.

Her description is thought provoking and challenging. Leave your dogma at the door, come in and enjoy her journey.

Articulate and analytical Consciousness experience

This Near Death Experience is different than most, maybe a little more "technical" in the observations. It would still be interesting for a new reader of this topic, but the people who have read more books about expanded Consciousness, including Out of Body Experiences, will pick up on more of the shared and in-common details related here. So, in a way, this might be on a more advanced level in terms of describing a NDE.

This is actually great for people who are interested in the intersection of expanded consciousness along with interests in physics, dimensions, time, entities-beings-personalities, the Self experiencing this lifetime, and the part elsewhere . . .

William Buhlman's book Adventures In the Afterlife, and Robert Monroe's trilogy are a fantastic way to get ready for Natalie Sudman's book if you haven't done much reading in this genre. Natalie's recollections are sophisticated, detailed, and perhaps baffling to someone new to the idea of expanded consciousness and reality. I've read a lot in this topic area, and there are parts I had trouble with and this is a book I will have to listen to at least once more to improve understanding.

Along with Tom Campbell's My Big TOE trilogy, Natalie Sudman's Application of Impossible Things would be in a category of "popping the hood and seeing how it works" books on expanded Consciousness and the human experience.

Can't get enough!

I really can't get enough of this audible book! I have listened to it 5 or more times and don't plan on stopping yet. Not only is the story intriguing and for me, even profound, but the narration by Jenna is outstanding. She skill in the reading makes this book so enjoyable. In my opinion, she sets the bar. Great book!

Great information!

I loved her story and her descriptions of the experiences were beautifully detailed. Sometimes I had to go back and relisten to parts to fully grasp the meaning because she uses complicated phraseology. It’s obvious that she is smart and well educated. But it doesn’t come off as pompous.
Worth the read/listen. Narration was also good.

Dense and Unexpected

I watched Natalie Sudman talk about her NDE on YouTube. She is smart and articulate, with a dry sense of humor. Her experiences during her NDE were mesmerizing. However, her book was a different experience. I am a writer and when listening to her audiobook, I found it dense. By this I mean packed with several hard-to-wrangle concepts in single paragraphs. I think when one acquires new knowledge it can be difficult to remember perceptions prior to acquiring the new vantage point. She writes about her experiences as if she were writing to others who've had an NDE. Those of us who have not, need to be walked thru her experiences, with Natalie spending time filling in details around each new event. Instead, we are hanging on to her coattails as she breezes thru. I recognize she had a lot of ground to cover however, we here on earth have not had our minds expanded and so are left to grapple with one new concept at a time... This book remains compelling, fascinating, and remarkable albeit a tough slog. So I will listen multiple times, which is fine. Thank you Natalie for your courage in sharing this!

fantastic!!!

what a beautifully detailed description of a very powerful and life altering experience! I loved the way she hits home with how we can draw from our "whole self" and feather that into our seemingly very real experience on this 3rd dimensional exsistance here on earth. A wonderful narrator as well. I found if I slowed the tempo of the narration down just a bit, I could grasp more fully all the concepts that were being described and presented. Enjoy!

Finally I finished this book

The last Chapter was great this whole book should have been 4 chapters long, I love to read near death experiences but unless you enjoy long long details just read the last chapter!

Enjoyed it and learned a lot!

This is an enjoyable and informative book about a Near Death Experience. Natalie Sudman, the author, has a pleasant sense of humor and a highly analytical mind. She provides considerable information about her time in the Afterlife--what it was like. Her descriptions provide more insights than the reports of many others because she seems to have gone deeper into the Afterlife rather than being turned away before really entering it.

So much makes sense!

This is a book written in a pragmatic and also spiritual way. So much of what Natalie makes sense in scientific and spiritual terms.
Natalie’s ideas and questions take you towards different perspectives and allows for oneness and uniqueness in equal measure. Brilliant.

Keeping the science practical is not as easy as keeping things simple

I saw Natalie on youtube speaking at a seminar. So thought I'd read her book. I wish I hadn't. When she spoke at the seminar i feel she wasn't able to over explain or delve into the science of her experience. I felt in her book there was nothing that i could use to help my growth. What was the point of Natalie's experience if I as a reader and listener am not able to take something simple from her to help my growth. To me her book was more about her "telling" us how special she was, and how amazing she is because of her experience. She really gave nothing simple for readers to apply to their own lives. Sorry but she was a big bummer for-me and i wanted to stop half way thru, but persevered for the last chapter..... should have stopped reading half way thru.
For someone whom experienced such a thing, what a waste if your not willing to be more generous and giving with the universal information that, according to you, belongs to all of us. Either that wad the problem, or, you just didn't get it. I would say it was the later.

fantastic

This book was an amazing read for me. I found the narrator to be engaging and easy to listen to.
I recommend this book to anyone who is open to the seemingly impossible being possible. My grattitude to the author for being brave enough to share this incredible story and for the well grounded insights offered.
