Romy NDE 3/9/14 From Australia. I was watching millions of the pictures of my life’s event, like a movie broken down into picture frames. All the little deeds, thoughts and moments upon moments, even the ones I forgot ever happened-they were there. It was such a fascinating sight. The most curious thing was that the pictures were not connected to one another- they had a gap between them that looked like a string of light. It looked like they were threaded on this string of light. My main feelings were equanimity, awe and curiosity. There was a strong quality of inquiry and inquisitiveness as I was examining everything. Every time a question came to me, the answer was immediately revealed. This unfolding of pictures and gaps developed and progressed continuously, presenting a constant delicate consequential line in perfect order, a chain of events, yet somehow they were all happening at once. The past the present and the future were all happening at once. It was inspiring to witness the order and sense that all these little pictures seemed to have in “the big picture”. I felt a lot of compassion. I was all forgiven. In fact there was nothing to forgive. I could see that my life had “perfect order” to it. In some way it was like watching a mathematical equation or sum that makes perfect sense- such event and such event create this kind of result. It was a simple portrayal of natural cause and effect with a gentle understanding. There was no judgment, only innocence.
Exceptional NDE from lady originally from Israel resulting from car accident in India. Remarkable and detailed comments on life review. Received information in experience that likely saved her life.
Barbara W NDE 7152 3/9/14 It was sunny blue skies overhead. I remember walking up to a big brick house and there were beautiful flowers all around the front sidewalk. Everything was so colorful and vivid. The front door seemed to be especially illuminated and sparkly. I walked up to the front door and noticed a beautiful terra cotta tile design around the wooden door. I reached out my hand to a round metal doorknob to open the door and go inside. There was no fear or sadness. I just knew I wanted to go inside. Just as I touched the doorknob I heard someone calling my name.
NDE vs anesthesia experience immediately following surgery.
Sally D NDE 3/9/14 It was calm and warm as I drifted up and watched myself lying so peacefully on the bench in the mall...no movement, no fight and finally no pain. As the fire crew arrived I felt a strong hand on my shoulder...a hand that seemed also to have a warmth that radiated through my entire being and added visions of colors I have never experienced before(even though my eyes were closed).
NDE due to apparent unconsciousness from unknown illness. Interesting in that OBE preceded NDE. Experience was shared 5 days after it occurred.
Gene B NDE 3/9/14 The next thing I knew, I was up at the ceiling of my office, looking down on my body laying, all sprawled out in my recliner chair. Then I was up in the air above my office building, it was dark, The stars were out, the street lights were on, Holy Family hospital was a city block to the south, traffic was moving on the streets within my view. Then I instantly "went up in the sky, and ended up in a dark tunnel, with thousands of sparkly little lights on the walls and ceiling. At the far end of the tunnel there was a light, a long distance away. In an instant I was at the end of the tunnel. This opening had looked like an inverted "V', and reminded me of the opening between vocal cords. At the end of the tunnel was a vast space, multiple colors were dancing about, ( many colors and shades that I had never seen before, This was all choreographed to awesome, ethereal music. I felt total peace, almost euphoric.
NDE from a physician who is currently retired, but was practicing at the time of the NDE. NDE due to sudden respiratory failure.
David M NDE 3/9/14 From Canada. It was at this point that the light got brighter and I was all around me. My arms opened up straight out to my sides and I became weightless as if I was in a pool just floating with my arms and legs out. It was warm and peaceful and all the thoughts of my regrets and such just disappeared along with any pain or stress. I was relaxed and I stared straight into the source of light which was a circle and I began floating on my back towards it.
NDE due to sudden respiratory failure at age 16.
Witney NDE 3/9/14 From South Africa. My mother sat in the middle of the station wagon and my brothers at the back. As we drove we were hit head on by a drunk driver that drove into our lane without stopping. Everything seemed to happen in slow motion. I could see his vehicle heading straight into us, and then I blacked out. I immediately forgot about everything. I was in complete darkness, it was warm and comforting. I felt safe and content. I felt loved. It was very quiet, it felt like I was swimming or floating. I felt like I was in a warm, safe cocoon. Nothing hurt. I saw a light in the distance. It was soft and shimmery. However I didn't feel the need to go there. I had to "go back". I awoke suddenly, but couldn't see well due to eye and facial injuries. I was being taken out of the car wreck.
NDE due to car accident at age 12.
Marc-André B Possible NDE 3/6/14 From Canada. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I went out of my body, I saw my silver line that connected me to it, my parents were in the hospital room where I was in an incubator connected everywhere with all kinds of machines. My mother was crying and my father didn't say anything but held my mother in his arms... I turned as if looking at the ceiling, as I felt being pulled upward and I saw the light with a big soft warmth that went through my being. I almost instantly found myself in a luminous place where everything was marvelous, where I felt much, much love, infinite knowledge and above all a learning of my previous and future lives... There were light beings around me, talking to me and I felt very good, with complete trust.
NDE as an infant, under one year old.
Fabio G NDE 3/4/14 From Italy. Original in Italian, translated to English by Fran. I was back into the space. I could see the stars, the nebulas, the planets, and I was there in the middle. It was my reality, I was really in outer space. Before entering the tunnel I was surprised, and I could not appreciate the beauty of the cosmos. But now I am more relaxed, I feel serene, and I get emotional in front of such magnificence. I picture myself with open arms in ecstasy, even if I don't have a body. After some time, from a specific part of the space, I "feel" a presence, something, someone, I can't explain it. I saw nothing and heard no word, nevertheless, I suddenly realize that the 'speaker' had always been there, and had followed me while I was in the tunnel, and somehow he had perhaps helped me to turn back. We began a silent dialogue. An immense and unconditional love. A flow of love. We continued like that for a while, then I somehow felt that I had to go. But I deliberately stayed a little longer. That state of being was so sublime. Then I knew that I had to go.
NDE from a diving accident.
Silvia C Possible NDE 3/4/14 From Italy. Original in Italian, translated to English by Fran. I'm out of my body and I feel very well, I see a light 'surface' in front of me! .. Nothing on earth has the same consistency. It is very nice and pleasant, I feel surrounded by so much love. I want to remain in the light 'surface' that I perceive as a Tunnel, while I perceive it, I'm moving further away from my bed, and I go into this tunnel…. But after a while, something thrown me back in my little body and what is led in my thought is "this is not your time''
Possible NDE from a fever as a child.
