He has decided to share this story now because of the events of the global pandemic, the corona virus / COVID-19. He hopes to help all of the people suffering and wondering about what will happen to them and their loved ones. 

Near Death Experience Research Foundation-Archives 2011 part 2

2837. Douglas H NDEs 9/25/2011. NDEs 6014. From Canada Then I became aware of something like a tunnel, and I remember feeling drawn toward it. I could see a small light at the end of the tunnel, and as I moved toward it, it seemed to get bigger. It looked just like a tunnel opening. As I entered the light, it felt like I became a part of it. The light felt like it passed right though my body, and when it did, it gave me such a good, calm feeling.
Two NDEs, both due to accidents.

2836. Pauline L NDE 9/25/2011. NDE 6012. From the UK. I then saw my grandson who hadn’t been born yet. My daughter had been pregnant for just a couple of months, and we didn’t know what sex the child was. He said to me, ‘Gran gran, please go back, or I won’t be born!’ He held my hand and I felt the love. It was overpowering.
NDE due to brain hemorrhage. Remarkable conversation with unborn grandchild who told her to return to her earthly life or he would not be born. Awareness of five more children to be born in the future.

2835. David D Probable NDE 9/25/2011. Probable NDE 6010. I had a serious liver disease and I was taken to the hospital by my sister. I heard them tell her that I did not have long to live. I saw a priest and nun over me, giving me Last Rites. I went to another place. About as much as I can say about it is that it wasn’t our world, although it was in the same location. The presence of Jesus within a mist, or cloud, was all around me. I was told He had things for me to do. Still in that other world, I was introduced to all the other patients on the floor. When I awoke the next day, I knew everyone’s names. They thought I was nuts, or looked like they did, anyway.
Probable NDE due to severe liver disease.

2834. Donna NDE 9/25/2011. NDE 6008. I said to myself, ‘Huh, I thought that one was supposed to last longer’, and headed up in a light cloud. It felt so perfect. I felt like I was going home and I felt comfortable and joyous with no doubts at all. It was like every cell of my body was happy and light and felt right and I have never felt so accepted.
NDE from criminal attack. Remarkable apparent life-saving Divine intervention, and apparent hellish NDE immediately following in her attacker (the attacker’s second hellish NDE)

2833. Sandra Z NDE 4/16/2011. NDE 22555. Instantly, I was standing behind myself. I saw my dad jump up and I saw my own body leaning back in the chair. I saw my little sister fly off my lap into the counter and into the person sitting in front of me. On the floor to my left, there was a little kids’ block with the letter A on it, and as I watched myself faint, I could see that my body, or my head, WAS going to hit that block. I thought, ‘That is going to hurt!’ Next, my dad was on top of me, smacking and shaking me. I came back into my body. When I looked up and saw my dad, I reached behind my head and there was the block. At that time, I could only cry, because I was so confused, having no real knowledge of these things or of God. There is no way anyone can tell me that this did not happen. I was a innocent child. Much later, I told my father the truth, and he understood completely.
NDE at age 10 due to loss of consciousness from unknown illness.

2832. Kelly S Possible NDE 9/18/2011. Possible NDE 6002. We were just getting close enough to hear this wonderful music, when the entity said it was time for me to decide to go back or to go forward. I had just had the thought that my husband would not begrudge me this chance, when I was yanked back and slammed back into this world, with bright lights and pain.
Possible NDE due to experience while under general anesthesia.

2831. Angela Probable FDE 9/18/2011. Probable FDE 6000. From Canada There were no words spoken at any point. Although I know these were a male presence, I remember not being able to see their faces. I distinctly remember feeling a hand, a physical hand, on my own, and feeling that my life was now spared, that I was now safe. Once on the shore, I remember looking back into the water and along the shoreline. There was no one there except for people visible off in the distance and back at the hotel.
Probable fear death experience and STE during life-threatening risk of drowning.

2830. Fergus NDE 9/18/2011. NDE 5371. From Ireland. I could clearly see myself on the gurney and three nurses shouting and slapping me. I could feel the dread of one of the nurses as she called for something. I was not feeling any pain at all, as I watched them trying to revive me. When they started using a defibrillator on me, my body felt nothing. But with every hit of the defibrillator paddles, I could feel myself being sucked closer and back into my body.
NDE due to suicide attempt.

2829. Lexy Probable NDE 9/18/2011. Probable NDE 5370. From Bavaria. In the beginning, the tunnel was glowing gently, but then it became more and more intense and bright. I experienced a feeling of depth and dimension. My speed increased as I approached the light at the end of the tunnel. The intensity of the colors deepened. In addition, I was now full of an expectant joy. A sense of warmth penetrated me, through and through.
Probable NDE at age six in association with ether anesthesia for surgery.

2828. Francisco R NDE 9/17/2011. NDE 5330. From Columbia. Original in Spanish. Translated to English by Maria. In that precise moment, I started to see myself from above. There was no pain any more, no cold, no hunger only tranquility and an immense peace. I saw my body being hurt by the electric current, but I did not care at all. The feeling of peace was so overwhelming that I did not need anything from this world. I realized that I was dead and that my body was just another nail that had fallen. I understood I had neither body nor eyes but my consciousness was intact, and I felt I could perceive the world with something close to omniscience; it was as if I knew everything. Then I started to leave. I could see the universe very far away at the end of a tunnel. Then I had this feeling ’wait a minute, I am dying and I have had no sons nor have I had a girlfriend and I wanted to have all that!’ I did not want to die without having had a full life!
Teenage NDE from electrocution.

2827. Marsy C Probable NDE 9/14/2011. Probable NDE 5307. Original in French. Translated to English by Jean Peter. The problem was that I did not know when to push. I was extremely tired just lying there quietly. After a moment, I felt I was out of my body. This was an unfamiliar feeling, extremely weird. I was conscious, I saw myself on the delivery table, and my husband was next to me. I could see the midwife and I could see that the weather was good out the window. But I was/felt out of my body, as if my body were separated from my soul. It seemed as though my body and soul was two different things; my body was below and I was above, seeing everything. The room was very bright.
Beginnings of a probable NDE from childbirth complications.

2826. Glenna C NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5367. I had this real sharp pain. It was just not going away – I could not even breathe. I’m telling you, this pain was so great that I knew I was having a heart attack !!! I could not even reach the phone to call for help. ‘This is it,’ I thought. ‘I’m going to die here by myself.’ The pain was getting worse and worse, and soon I could not even breathe. Then there was this real bright light. I had never seen anything like it before! It was so soft! I was drawn to it. I remember there was this guy whose face I could not see. But I knew him, and he knew who I was. As I looked around, I saw people sitting in this room that was like a tunnel. They all knew who I was, but I didn’t know them. Either that or I could not tell who they were, for they had no faces, or maybe their faces were just in shadow from the bright light. They were talking to me, asking me questions, asking me why don’t. I just stay here.
NDE due to heart attack.

2825. Kristy G NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5366. I was a passenger in a car and we were hit head-on by another vehicle. I remember seeing its headlights coming towards us. I was talking on the phone with my mom at the time and we were arguing about something. I just felt really still for a minute, then I saw a long dark tunnel with a light at the end and I walked through it. I saw my body in the car and felt my sister tug on my hair saying, ‘Kristy, don’t leave me. I need you.’ So, I returned. I did not want to leave. I went back into my body and my eyes did not feel like my eyes any more, they felt ‘different’ (I have been legally blind since birth). I went to the emergency room and just wanted to sleep. The doctor said I had a mild concussion and a broken collar bone.
NDE due to auto accident.

2824. Deborah D Probable NDE 9/10/2011. Probable NDE 5364. As soon as I remembered whatever it was I heard a sound and I knew from the sound that I was dying as I traveled down a tunnel. At first, it was dark as I continued to hear the sound but then I saw a small bright light come closer to me and get brighter. More than bright light, I knew it was GOD. The further I traveled the warmer and happier I felt. I was going towards the bright light. It is where I wanted to be. There were people there on my right side that knew me. It felt like I knew everyone. They were talking to me without words. They told me I did not belong there but I wanted to stay.
Probable NDE due to nitrous oxide overdose for dental surgery.

2823. Michaele S NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5363. We were ‘moving’ through a vastness (I have no other word for it) and it is at this point that language is just not enough. The vastness was not empty and yet it was! We arrived at what the being said (with a wave of his arm) was Love. ‘This is Love. It is always here, always streaming toward you, never diminishing, always loving you. All you have to do is be open to it. Receive it. This will heal you’. In that moment, I thought it meant my body healing. It did mean that but it was also about so much more and I learned this in the years following my experience. I have never found a way to truly describe what I saw there and resort to the only explanation I can give for something that defies our limited language. LOVE was boundless yet contained no color and all color, nothing and all things, it was tangible, dense, mysterious, and light. It was everything and nothing. It was an actual presence but not personality. It was all shape and no shape. I felt so joyous in the most peaceful quiet way, very grounded and accepting.
Remarkable NDE due to car running into a moving train.

2822. Catherine M Probable NDE 9/10/2011. Probable NDE 5362. I was able to see it for a second, and realize that they were all pictures of my life. I don’t remember what the picture was that helped me realize this. Something tells me that it was a picture of me and a family member when I was a small child, but I have no evidence or remembrance to back this up, I just remember thinking that.
Probable NDE at age 17 due to passing out from alcohol intoxication and hitting head.

2821. Barbara E NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5361. As I settled into the love without condition, I realized more and more how utterly and absolutely intelligent light was. The sheer level of creativity and intellect was emotionally and psychologically beyond comprehension. I knew that because light was telepathically melded with me, allowing me to sense at least a minute degree of what was contained within. There was so much thought and information that it felt as if zillions of scrolls of data about the true nature of reality just kept unraveling. I was lost and overwhelmed and had no comprehension of what it all meant. Yet the central message came through loud and clear. Reality is SO much larger, multi-layered and multi-dimensional than we realize. Consciousness is able to experience so much more than what we commonly practice. Everything has purpose and meaning.
NDE due to unconsciousness at time of illness.

2820. Angela E NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5360. They said to me, ‘you are not supposed to be here.’ I got a little scared at that time and thought I was going to get in trouble. There was a door there; it was closed. I remember someone opened it and I was so excited to see that person. They seemed full of love and kindness. That person that opened the door made me feel safe. They called for someone else to come through it. They then closed it back. I remember sitting there and getting a bit anxious for it to be my turn to go through it.
NDE at age 4 due to unconsciousness secondary to likely near heat stroke.

2819. Margaret V NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5358. From Canada. I was brought into the ER by ambulance. I don’t remember very much. I do remember being in the hospital and being brought into a room. I was there only a few minutes, or so I thought. I remember being aware that my chest was feeling different from usual. I also remember that, at the time, I was wondering if it was my body that I was looking down on because I was also looking around and seeing no one. I said, ‘Um hum, I don’t know where everyone is but something is happening here. I don’t feel right.’ Next thing I see is that I am in a dark room. It wasn’t round, it wasn’t square; it was just very, very warm, very beautiful, and very, very black.
NDE due to heart attack.

2818. Karen M NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5357. Off in the distance I could see a light. As I watched, it started moving towards me, getting closer and closer. I actually cannot say if I was moving towards it, or if it was coming towards me. But I do remember that I was not afraid, in spite of the strangeness of what was happening. I could feel the warmth from the light, which was not like any light I had ever seen before. It was bright, but at the same time, it didn’t hurt my eyes as I looked into it. I felt happy and unafraid. The light had just come to the point where it was starting to surround me, when it started to back away.
NDE due to cardiac arrest during emergency c’sarian section surgery.

2817. Regina D NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5354. It is difficult for me to describe what I saw. My view bobbed up and down as if I were floating. It didn’t look like a color, or a black and white, video. There were bits of color but the lines between colors were not totally clear. It was almost like a fuzzy picture with the different colors floating and bobbing around. There was a lot of commotion and noise that seemed to be muffled.
NDE at age 6 due to drowning.

2816. Tracy D NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5352. He looked so perfect, and so at peace. I can’t really describe how awesome, calm, and perfect he looked. When he passed, he was 73 years old and all grey beard and moustache. As he appeared before me, he was much younger: in his prime with thick, wavy, bright deep red hair, as he had when he was younger, only much more vivid and intense. Any imperfection or flaw he had was sculptured, chiseled away, to a smooth perfection. HE LOOKED PERFECT, BEAUTIFUL AND CONSUMED WITH PEACE AND JOY AND OVERFLOWING WITH UNDERSTANDING AND LOVE (I could go on and on).
Remarkable NDE. Met deceased father- contributor had to make a difficult decision to end life support for his father. His father directly addresses this. A must read for anyone who has struggled with end of life decisions for a loved one.

2815. Oscar O NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5350. I remember when I stood before my biologic father for getting into some mischief. I had a sense of dread and fear because I knew the circumstance was going to earn me a spanking. But this review with the light never once did I have this same sense of fear, it was as though I was being shown what happened in that scene and then what the outcome was.
NDE due to drowning at age 11. Encounter with Jesus and life review.

2814. Adam N NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5349. I was above my body looking down at it. I saw him and what he was doing to me. He was yelling and shaking me and telling me to wake up. My lips looked very blue and dark. Even though I wasn’t in my body anymore, I felt like I could feel my heart stop. It was calming as soon as the beating ceased. I was exactly who I am now only without a body. Everything was the same, but I was just a consciousness, not a body.
NDE due to drug overdose.

2813. Jason P FDE 9/10/2011. FDE 5346. I floated there bordering on consciousness in a huge pool of blood until I was poked by a huge tiger shark. Then the shark poked me again. That’s when I had a life review, and was lifted out of the water by a faceless, glowing entity, and flown to shore in an instant. No one ever saw the entity but me.
Fear-death experience at age 14 due to surfing accident and encounter with a shark.

2812. Anne-Cécile NDE 9/7/2011. NDE 5296. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Simon A. I left my body. I was drawn, sucked, through a passage, like a tunnel, towards an intense white light. The space was not wide, but it was like a roadway. I was following along it towards the light. Suddenly I had a thought about my boyfriend, with whom I was in love. Immediately, I found myself back in my body in my car.
NDE from car accident.

2811. Julianna NDE 8/28/2011. NDE 5345. I then became aware of being surrounded by a bright white light. I found myself standing on one side of a canyon that stretched out as far as I could see, to the right and to the left of me. Looking down, as far down as I could see, it was all pitch black. I noticed that the source of the light seemed to be on the other side of the canyon. It seemed so close, and yet there was no way for me to get to it. I began to panic. I wanted so badly to be one with the light.
NDE due to heroin overdose at age 16.

2810. Roberta W Probable NDE 8/28/2011. Probable NDE 5344. I was pulled from my body. I understood that I was no longer in my body and at the same time I felt a physical resistance to leaving it as I knew that it meant that I was dying. I went through the typical tunnel experience with the light pulling me. My arrival at the light was a mind-blowing love that I recognized as God. Then I experienced a mind transfer of information through telepathy and I understood that when we die, we understand everything, which is so very simple that I did not want to leave.
Probable NDE during emergency c’sarian section surgery.

2809. Sally E NDE 8/28/2011. NDE 5343. I was aware of everything going on in the ambulance, but at the same time, I was in a long hallway. It reminded me of a hotel hallway, because I was aware of doors all along both sides. At the end of the hallway was one door that had such a bright light behind it, the rays were seeping out on all sides of the door. I had no body; just a consciousness. Then there was a great roaring sound (like a jet plane, just before it begins to go down the runway) and I was suddenly traveling at an unbelievable rate of speed towards the door at the end of the hallway.
NDE due to pulmonary embolus.

2808. Karen O Possible NDE 8/28/2011. Possible NDE 5342. From the UK. I was walking toward a beautiful, bright, white light. There were hundreds of people of all denominations walking with me. I wasn’t scared; in fact, I felt euphoria and excitement. It was as if we were on a path, or road. Different colored bright lights were rushing past me, and it was like walking out of a dark tunnel. The next minute, I felt like I woke up on some beautiful green grass that went on for miles and miles. To my right was a river and to my left was a wooden fence that also went on for miles.
Possible NDE due to suicide attempt

2807. Donna G Probable NDE 8/28/2011. Probable NDE 5340. After many tests to find the hole in my small intestine, I was rushed into emergency surgery at 11:00 pm to repair both the small intestine and the bladder. As the surgery was ending, my heart raced and then almost stopped. I was on a respirator for twelve hours and in intensive care for a full day. I found myself standing outside the archway of a living room area. (There was no door.) Inside was a sofa. Sitting on the sofa was my grandmother. Standing next to her, talking to her, was my sister Barbara, who passed away last year from colon cancer. Standing next to her, was my twin sister Diane, who had died at birth when we were born. (The cord had been wrapped around her neck and the doctors could not save her.) Except Diane was not a baby here; she was a grown adult.
Probable NDE from surgical complications.

2806. Jack B NDE 8/28/2011. NDE 5338. Suddenly, I found myself landing in the sand on an ocean shore. I got up and saw this long bridge in front of me. It looked like it was miles long but it only took me a few steps to cross it. When I got to the end, a man, who seemed to be my grandfather, was standing there. He told me, ‘You just need to finish what’s started, so get busy.’
NDE due to fall and head injury.

2805. Giselle L NDE 8/20/2011. NDE 5334. This tunnel was amazing. It was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. It was alive. It was energy, and its color was bright blue! A living framework, geometrically perfect lines, synchronized, moving lines that spun inside each other. So beautiful! I zipped through it and ended up in the void again, where I found myself staring through a square-shaped hole. I was staring at myself while the doctor and nurses were trying to revive me. I don’t like to call what I experienced ’emotion’. My body seemed to be free from all emotion. The word I would choose would be ‘bliss’.
NDE due to alcohol poisoning.

2804. Ozzie F NDE 8/20/2011. NDE 5332. As I stood on my side of the perfectly clear stream that was meandering crystal-clear water over the rocks, I noticed that my place of waiting was like the pasture field on the other side of the stream—beautiful flowers and grass carpeted. When I commenced walking down to cross the small creek to greet and hug Mommy and Sister Bonnie, my sister said, ‘Not now Bubby, don’t cross over yet.’
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

2803. Henrietta K NDE 8/20/2011. NDE 5331. I am not sure if I realized it at the beginning, or if I was made aware of it at some point later in the experience, but I was possessed by an insanely intense desire to reach an impossibly bright light that I could see at the end of this canyon. That light seemed to be the source of all the light, all the love, all the goodness, pleasure and peace in all of existence. It was the source of everything. It seemed to be the only thing that had ever mattered. It was contained within everything, it united everything and I was drawn to it as if by a powerful magnet.
NDE due to faint and apparent seizure.

2802. Storm Possible NDE 8/20/2011. Possible NDE 5326. There was no sound whatsoever. I saw what appeared to be a castle in the distance. It looked like it was made of white, light pink and powered blue sand. There was a drawbridge connected to this castle. I saw Jesus and John the Baptist walking down the bridge reading a scroll, deep into conversation with each other.( at 4 years old I may have known who Jesus was by a picture in our house, but not John the Baptist) I tried to wave Jesus down while running through the clouds. He did not look up at me at all. He waved his hand in my direction as if to say ‘Not yet, you are not supposed to be here.’
Possible NDE associated with fever at age 4.

2801. Beckie W NDE 8/20/2011. NDE 5325. The next thing I knew, I was sitting next to someone way above myself. We were looking down on the operating room where the doctor and six other people were working on me. I remember seeing the light shining on me. I remember the doctors in white. The person next to me had their arm around me telling me everything was going to be OK.
NDE due to cut with blood loss at age 5.

2800. Kelly D NDE 8/20/2011. NDE 5323. I had no sense of my body, including my neck, and I saw nothing at first, but I heard music which sounded like the most beautiful laughter of children or I thought, ‘angels; the cherubim!’ It was more beautiful than any music I had ever heard on earth and I felt that the angels laughed when good things happened on earth. I felt this was the music of the spheres. The angels (whom I never saw) were like petals of the Rose that enfolded me with love. I felt safe, free and certain that this was the gateway to Heaven. I cannot describe the utter joy and peace.
NDE due to car accident.

2799. Donna K FDE 4/5/2011. FDE 22536. From Canada Then they showed me ‘my’ experiences in literally a flash. I saw my birth, and every moment of my life concurrently – not a slideshow really, but my entire life was visible. I was shown various things in the normal world (don’t know where we were though…), and saw so much more than what I normally see. The colors were incredibly visible, and every object, leaf, breath was ‘visible’ – I could see everything ‘vibrating’ – it was as though rocks, leaves, the ground, the air – everything was ‘alive.’
Fear-death experience with detailed life review and spiritual insights.

2798. Darla M Probable NDE 7/3/2011. Shared Death Experience 16053. This light was always visible, even though we were twisting and turning. The light got very bright and large as if the tunnel was ending. And that is all I remember. I believe I took my baby to heaven. That is why I changed ‘I’ to ‘we’ above. One of my twins died sometime before the sonogram, and the other twin died shortly after delivery. Yes, I do have the sense that I had him cupped in my hands. I couldn’t see what was in my hands, though, I just had this feeling that as I was racing through this tunnel, my whole focus and all my attention was on protecting what I was carrying cupped in my hands.
Short shared death experience.

2797. Magdalena M NDE 8/17/2011. NDE 5294. From Mexico I could make out a golden light at the end of the tunnel, like a beautiful sunset. I felt flighty, light and very happy, more peaceful than I ever had in my life. As I was approaching the light, I could see something like several silhouettes waiting for me. It was all peace and happiness, but suddenly I could not go forward any more. I felt like something was stopping me and then something was grabbing my hand. I thought of my baby and of my other two daughters.
From Mexico, Original in Spanish. NDE from childbirth complications.

2796. Christal NDE 8/13/2011. NDE 5322. It was dark in the ‘well,’ but there was a light (this sounds so lame!) at the top of it. As the light grew brighter, I could make out some people, sort of leaning over, peering in. I saw three of my grandparents. There were two other people who don’t seem familiar to me now, but I remember knowing who they were at the time. I felt happy and very glad to see them. They spoke to me, but not with their mouths. I can’t remember what they said. I reached my hand up as if to let them pull me out, but my grandmother scolded me, ‘Not yet!’ she said.
NDE due to apparent respiratory arrest during illness.

2795. Lynn R NDE 8/13/2011. NDE 5320. I leaned back in a relaxing position, expecting to see my biological Dad, who had passed away a few years earlier, to walk through the curtain and take my hand and lead me through the curtain. I felt certain he was just on the other side of the curtain, (or cocoon like material) and I was content to wait on him to put in an appearance. As I waited for what seemed days, (although I wasn’t impatient – just content to be waiting.) I finally looked to my left and downward. I saw my husband standing with my children and son-in-law, who was holding my one grandchild.
NDE due to auto accident.

2794. Shane J NDE 8/13/2011. NDE 5317. I was standing in a field except the ‘grass’ was like lit up like fiber optics with a bright light on the horizon. I could hear what was going on in the emergency room but, when I looked back, I could not see the emergency room.
NDE due to respiratory arrest.

2793. Kay NDE 8/13/2011. NDE 5315. From Australia. I fainted, and next thing I knew, I was in another place. It was a white room, and I was sitting on a box covered in white shag pile carpet. The door to the left was shut. I could hear kids playing outside. I had no pain, felt happy and relaxed. I was talking to someone, but I could not tell you whom it was. I got the impression that they didn’t expect me there, as the person I was talking to was coming through a door. The door opened to me, and all I could see was bright light! But then, here on Earth, I heard my brother start to talk to me. He put a cold cloth on my head, and I was back.
NDE from fainting.

2792. Helen J Probable NDE 8/13/2011. Probable NDE 5314. From the UK. They came to take me to the operating room. I felt scared. My chances of survival were 50-50. During the operation, I suddenly found myself in this awful blackness. I felt sick with fear. It felt evil. I felt as though I was being dragged backwards down a flight of stairs and my head bounced down each step.
Probable NDE apparently while under anesthesia. Hellish experience.

2791. Charmaine M NDEs 8/13/2011. NDE 5313. From the UK. I followed her again, and this time the experience seemed longer. I met more family members who had passed away, and pets from childhood. I saw amazing flowers that were bigger than we have on earth, and fields of green and blue seas. I also got to see my Mother who was still alive, because I wanted to go home. My Gran said that I only had to think of her, and I would be with her. She could not see me, but I could see her. Again, I was told that this was not my time to die and was taken back to my body. The men who had beaten me were scared and said, ‘She is a witch’.
NDE due to criminal attack.

2790. Jeff L NDE 8/13/2011. NDE 5306. I remember all this as clearly as if it were yesterday. Suddenly, I was looking down at the room from the ceiling, and could see the couch where my parents were talking, the table in front of them, the desk, and the general layout of the room. My father got up and (I later realized) pulled me out from under the desk by my legs. That was the end of that memory.
NDE from electrocution at age 3-4.

2789. Eloise S NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5305. When I turned my head to look at the heart monitor, I realized that I was not breathing any more. I was above my body, up near the ceiling in a different dimension. It was like looking out at a 3D glass window. I tried to figure out what was happening, as I looked at my body below me.
NDE at childbirth.

2788. Karen G Mother NDE 8/6/2011. Secondhand NDE 5304. It got fuzzy as she seemed to be passing through the ceiling and she could look up at a light. But it wasn’t a LIGHT. It was like an openness; an awakening that her brain registered as a light. She said it felt it was like going home and she felt really good. But then she started to panic. My dad was in Korea and she was worried about who would take care of me on earth. The next thing she knew, she was slammed back into her body.
Daughter shares mother’s NDE due to cardiac arrest during surgery.

2787. Ellen A Probable NDE 8/6/2011. Probable NDE 5302. All of a sudden, I looked over to the ceiling corner of my curtained cubicle; there appeared in 3D color my beloved Dad and brother Joe – both deceased. They were in the form of a HOLOGRAM – transparent but vivid and pretty much life size (maybe a bit smaller). They said nothing, showed no expression, and just looked down at me. Now I was really happy! In my mind I would say they were there for minutes – but who knows.
Probable NDE due to blood loss from miscarriage.

2786. Joe W NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5301. My grandfather told me that they appeared that way to me because I would not recognize them in their spirit form. They disappeared and within the cloud, I saw ‘swirling clouds’. I felt a presence in there and tried to clarify whom it was. I could not see a face but felt the presence of Jesus on a throne. I said ‘who are you?’ He replied ‘I am your Lord Jesus ’and I fell to my knees. Jesus said ‘Don’t be afraid, I love you’.
NDE due to auto accident.

2785. Mitchell M NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5300. Suddenly I was high up in the air. I could see myself floating face down. I could see my cousin waving his arms and yelling for help, and my dad running toward the water. I also saw another man jump up and run toward the water. At that point, I remember thinking that I really wanted to tell my dad not to be so scared, because I was in a safe place. Then my favorite grandma, who had died several years before, was next to me. I didn’t see her; I just knew she was there. She said, ‘You have to go back, Mitchell, you can’t be here yet.’
NDE at age 11 due to drowning. Shared 52 years later.

2784. Kathryn A NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5299. I began to ask, ‘How do I get out of here? I am so happy to be home! Get me out of this car!’ I was lovingly told that I had more work to do. I was specifically instructed to take off my seat belt and get out of the car. I was shown something that appeared to me only in my thoughts for that moment, and that gave me the desire to return. I took off my seat belt and crawled through the space where the window used to be. As I began to rise, I asked, ‘How long do I have to hold my breath?’ and immediately the answer came, ‘As long as it takes.’
NDE due to car crash with car ending upside down at bottom of stream. Remarkable for angelic intervention that probably saved her live.

2783. Sabrina E Probable NDE 8/6/2011. Probable NDE 5298. I had a bleed on the brain, died and went to Heaven. There, I saw a lot of lights. The souls of those gone before me were the lights. It was like a room carpeted all over with lights. Way up front, there was God! My daughter stood behind God. She had passed about three years before. I made my way through the lights, and when I got up to the front, the Lord spoke to me. He said, ‘I just wanted you to see that I have her and that she is fine.’
Probable NDE due to what is described as bleeding on the brain.

2782. Curtis M NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5297. The next thing I knew I was looking down at myself watching the chaos, hearing my name. Then there was light, a wonderful bright light. I was moving towards this bright light. I wasn’t cold anymore. I was at ease. I saw figures and heard familiar voices. One in particular was my Grandmother telling me I needed to go back and that my family needed me. Then there was a feeling of calm. A hand touched my shoulder and I felt extreme love. I looked in the direction of the hand and a man’s voice spoke. It was the most calming, loving voice. She is right my son. You must go back. You are needed. I didn’t want to leave.
Heart stopped following back surgery.

2781. Tanya NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5295. Suddenly, I felt my body relax completely. Surrounded by darkness, I heard beautiful, gothic-type music, like angels singing. I felt myself floating – completely at peace – so happy!
NDE due to asthma and allergic reaction.

2780. Emily R NDE 2/6/2011. NDE 22524. They rolled me into the operating room. The next thing I remember, I saw my body on the table. Then I was in this dark room. I started to turn my head around and that’s when I saw the light. I tried to drag my hand and my body toward the light. The next thing I remember, I was in the recovery room. Next, the nurse started pushing the bed toward my room. My daughter was explaining to me what had happen, but I wasn’t paying attention. The next morning, I felt so at peace. I was in a daze! The doctor came in and explained what had happen to me. He said, ‘The surgery went well, but there was a problem getting the trachea out of your mouth.’ I had died but started breathing again on my own. I was very much at peace while he was talking to me, but also in a daze. In three days, I requested to go home. While at home, I started to remember. It was like a flash.
NDE due to surgical complication. Shared about three weeks after experience.

2779. Maria Teresa Possible NDE 7/31/2011. Possible NDE 5282. From Italy I suddenly found myself running down a long black tunnel. In fact, this was my soul leaving my body, running fast inside this tunnel so I could reach a white light, a bright ring. The very moment I reached the light, I turned around and, retracing my steps, ran back through the tunnel at the same speed, until I reached where I had started – only to turn around again and run back down the tunnel towards the light.
Teenage Possible NDE due to surgery complications.

2778. Art J NDE 7/30/2011. NDE 5290. The next thing I remember is looking at myself and seeing a bluish aura. I looked, I think, straight ahead and saw what looked like a rough cave. It was too dark to see to the end. Around me was darkness. Although at that point I couldn’t move, I could see the sides of the cave. It was pitch black but I could see a cloaked figure with its hood down to its chest. It lifted its, I think, hand, draped in the cloak’s sleeve and pointed at me what looked like an abnormally long finger made of, I think, bone, and said, ‘You.’
NDE at age 8 due to choking. He’s age 15 now.

2777. Burt G NDE 7/30/2011. NDE 5289. What I realized was that my dog’s feeling of bewilderment was the same bewilderment I felt, looking down at my own body! After a second or so, a sense of peace overcame all my emotions, and I knew I was looking at my now lifeless body. I did not care! It was a relief to know it was over. I knew I was very near Heaven – but almost instantly, I knew I could not stay there.
NDE due to advanced Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.

2776. Cate NDE 7/30/2011. NDE 5288. The moment my heart stopped the void became deeper and deeper, until it felt like it expanded forever. I sensed that the darkness was about to part and reveal a marvelous light. Then I felt the presence of my deceased grandfather. I don’t remember everything that was said, but basically it was revealed that I could move on if I wanted to, but once I reached the light I would not be able to return to my body. He did not want my life to end though, because I still had some important lessons to be learned in this lifetime. He said that after I learned what I needed to about love that it would be my time to go.
NDE due to apparent medication reaction. Remarkable for awareness her life had been saved multiple times in her earthly life. Remarkable also for awareness of two men who died in a car accident- she became aware of and confirmed details of the accident.

2775. Tallulah F NDE 7/30/2011. NDE 5287. Then I realized I was outside my body looking down on myself. People were coming in and I could not get their attention. I realized I was slowly losing my senses like vision, hearing, etc. and things began to fade. Suddenly I was moving at a high rate of speed up a tunnel or vortex. Far up ahead I could see a very bright light and it felt like the most beautiful feeling I’ve ever had as I moved toward it. I got close enough to the light to make out a doorway and the light I was seeing was spilling out from the door, which was only partially open. The door closed and I was in darkness till I came too in the ambulance.
NDE due to accident.

2774. Donna M NDE 7/30/2011. NDE 5286. When I awoke, I was above looking down at my body with emergency medical technicians and other friends I knew. I spoke to someone asking, ‘Why are they crying?’ I don’t know who it was that I spoke to, nor did I see them. The voice said they were crying over me because I was in a car accident. I kept asking, ‘Why?’ I didn’t feel pain, actually I felt peaceful.
NDE due to auto accident at age seventeen.

2773. Stephen Girlfriend Probable NDE 7/23/2011. Probable NDE/Shared Death Experience 5285. From the United Kingdom During the operation, she remembers, she saw me at my home, lying on my bed, and she called out to me by name. Now û at this exact same moment, I was indeed lying on my bed, just dozing a little, when I was awakened, startled by someone shouting my name. I ventured out onto my stairway landing to see who was calling, but nobody was there. I went back to lying on the bed. Over the next few days, I was able to speak to her and was brought up to date on all that had happened. A strongly surreal moment for me was when she said, ‘I saw you lying down on your bed, and I called out to you.’ I exclaimed, ‘Oh my God, I heard you call! How can that be? You were 20 miles away!’
Probable NDE due to emergency surgery for ectopic pregnancy. Remarkable OBE with her boyfriend hearing her when she was OBE in his room.

2772. Paul P NDE 7/23/2011. NDE 5284. I left my body and went up a tunnel toward a beautiful golden light. I was in the presence of a spiritual being, Jesus. He told me that it was not time for me to stay there and that I would go back, that my mom needed me. He told me other things that I cannot remember. I remember being in the hospital room and realizing that I was not in my body. I remember seeing a baby. I no longer felt sick or scared. It was very peaceful, and I knew I would be okay.
NDE due to congenital heart problem at age 7 weeks. One of the earliest age NDE ever recorded.

2771. Antonio J NDE 7/23/2011. NDE 5276. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated by Simon A. Succumbing to shock after taking drugs combined with strong medication, I lost consciousness and suddenly found myself observing something which was revolving. The most important thing was, wrapped in an incredible peacefulness; I thought to myself, ‘So this would be the other life.’ And I felt no sadness on that account.
NDE from going unconscious from strong drugs.

2770. Colin S Probable NDE 7/17/2011. Probable NDE 5281. From Holland. It was quiet; I heard no sound of any kind. The image faded and I don’t know how long I stood there, or what happened next.
Probable NDE due to electrocution.

2769. Agnes M NDE 7/17/2011. NDE 5245. From France. Original in French, translated by Simon A. When I separated from my body, I had a feeling of floating. I had a feeling of total blessedness, a very intense wellbeing. I was floating in surroundings, which were very luminous and soft, rising up towards a more intense luminosity.
NDE from childbirth.

2768. Matthieu M NDE 7/11/2011. NDE 5220. From France. Original in French, translated by Simon A. I was floating in a white light, but a white, which is unknown on this Earth. In front of me, the light became more intense, drawing me towards it. I was relaxed and felt wonderfully well. I didn’t want to come back at all.
NDE from going unconscious.

2767. Michael H FDE 7/10/2011. FDE 5278. I was transported to a dimension of void or limitlessness where everything was very quiet and peaceful. I felt an overwhelming sense that this was indeed my death, and it did not bother me in that space one bit. Time was incredibly distorted, and for about ten minutes I watched the void, waiting for what came next. An indigo light appeared as a field surrounding me from the furthest reaches of this ‘space’ and I became aware that I was a luminous body, transparent and gossamer. This indigo light was very far away but surrounded me on all sides like a bubble.
Fear-death experience and other exceptional circumstances around experience.

2766. Sue D NDE 7/10/2011. Shared NDE 5275. From France. Then somebody spoke to me in a loud voice. It was my dad. He said I had to go back because my mission wasn’t over yet. I fell back into my body in the bed, with a great sadness. My soul was totally sad, and I could not explain what had just happened to me. I remember getting up out of bed and wondering if I was going to die. The next morning I found out that my dad was in the intensive care unit and had had a massive heart attack. He pulled through and lived for four more years after that. He, by some uncanny transfer, enabled me to live a NDE without going through the death stuff, for particular reasons.
Remarkable account of an apparent NDE at the time her father had a severe heart attack. She was not aware her father was having a heart attack, and he was a continent away from her.

2765. Brandy M NDE 7/10/2011. NDE 5272. I began to be pulled very fast down a long, dark tunnel at the end of which was an incredibly bright light. He dragged me back to the bed and kept calling to me and I began to fight this thing that was happening to me. I knew I was dying but did not want to die; I wanted to live so that I could have children. Also, my brother had recently died and that was number two for my father; I did not want it to happen to him again.
NDE due to apparent inappropriately prescribed medication.

2764. Joanie S NDE 7/10/2011. NDE 5271. I found myself in what I now think of as a previous life. I smelled smoke from a fire I was near, and saw others around me. I looked into another woman’s eyes, and I knew her immediately as the woman I called my grandmother in this life. I knew then that our lives had ‘danced’ around each other since time began.
Exceptional NDEs. First NDE due to seizure during delivery. Remarkable description of past life in prehistoric time. Second NDE is shared NDE. Due to blood loss during surgery. The child she was losing at this time said that they would be back soon – and

2763. Leonard S NDE 7/10/2011. NDE 5270. I was now on a stage or podium and the light was fully on me. The light penetrated me fully and I had never felt love like that before. Every cell in my body was full of love from the light and I began to laugh and cry simultaneously. I was crying for joy. I knew I was delivered into God’s light and laughed at myself for doubting I ever would. And the love kept coming.
NDE due to illness.

2762. Mary P NDE 7/10/2011. NDE 5269. Now, across from me sat a man; I could see him much more clearly than everything else. He looked Mediterranean û black hair, and the most gentle dark brown eyes I had ever seen (on Earth, at least.) When he began communicating with me, it wasn’t verbal. I could hear it in my mind. He explained he came to me dressed as a modern, clean-cut human because he knew me, and (he made a bit of a joke) that if he had come in the “Robes” (his words) that I wouldn’t have believed it and would have thought I had gone crazy. Seems we started having a laughing argument over something, and I realize I was asking to stay…. I knew sitting with Christ and me.
NDE due to apparent cardiac event.

2761. Susan C Probable NDE 7/10/2011. Probable NDE 5268. I was immediately aware that I was in a different place, in a room somewhere, lying all alone on a stone floor or level slab, and very, very comfortable. It didn’t hurt my back to lie flat without a pillow under my knees, like I usually have to do. Anyway, I was lying on this slab, with my hands crossed over my chest like an Egyptian. All around me was dark, but I was bathed in the bright light of a spotlight. The room was the perfect temperature, and I felt no pain whatsoever. I was so comfortable, I didn’t want to leave.
Probable NDE following surgery.

2760. Harry S Probable NDE 7/10/2011. Probable NDE 5267. My soul or spirit made its way through mist and a tunnel. I arrived at the end, facing a solid oak door. Next to the oak door was a spirit, shadow figure who knew me really well. No words were spoken or exchanged. All communication was through mind communication between us. The oak door opened for me. I peered through. It was a beautiful place with music that sounded peaceful and blissful. I was feeling euphoric and wanted to step through.
Probable NDE, surgery-related (no further details available).

2759. Gina J NDE 7/10/2011. NDE 5266. My first real memory (I say real because the clarity from the moment I was at the doorway was a clarity I’ve never experienced) is of feeling like it was the first time I’d ever really been alive. In my mind, I instantly knew the meaning of life and the grand plan, and I was thrilled. The plan was so perfect – something no human mind could conceive of. Everything made sense. My place in it made sense.
NDE due to accidental drug overdose.

2758. Andrew J NDE 7/4/2011. Shared NDE 5251. The Lord then spoke and said, ‘Your father spoke to me earlier and did not wish you to die. I granted his wish.’ I conversed more with the Lord and my father. This portion isn’t something I can remember, but I get the hazy sense that it was just as if we were talking things over, and that they were both consoling me. My memory picks back up at the point where I expressed my anxiety at returning to life. I think I said, ‘Well, I’d like to get back down and check on Daniel.’ and I gave my father and the Lord a parting hug.
Exceptional NDE due to accident. Shared death experience – his father had died in accident, and was with the Lord in the heavenly realm. His father had asked that the contributor not die, and the Lord granted his wish.

2757. Matt H NDEs 7/4/2011. NDE 5248. I flashed at my friend Jason and he actually looked up at me for a brief second. I could see my flash; it was brilliant blue and lasted one second. I continued to float away. I couldn’t believe what was happening, yet felt extremely well. I had to accept my death. I floated into the blue skies, then into darkness (which I thought was HELL) where I saw bad spirits circling. I prayed that I would continue floating away from them, and not stop where they were. Lucky me, I continued floating upwards, and the white light began to take over everything. I floated towards the center of the light until it completely surrounded me and there I stopped floating.
Two NDEs. One at age five due to playground head injury and one at age twenty-five due to blood loss.

2756. Marjorie S Probable NDE 7/4/2011. Probable NDE 5246. I was up in the corner of the room, watching all this activity. What I can say is that I felt what I now describe as ‘orgasmic’ peace!!! I will never fear death because this feeling of peace was just bliss!!! I did not go anywhere or see anyone. I stayed floating in the corner of the ceiling.
Probable NDE at childbirth.

2755. Jennifer D NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5265. I remember seeing sparks of light and people at a distance in the pool but recall that they weren’t wet and I had a conscious thought that I didn’t understand how they could be there under the water and not be wet. I didn’t seem to know any of the people I saw. It was not until sometime later that I saw family photos and was able to determine whom I saw.
NDE at age six. Contributor is a hospice nurse.

2754. Carol J NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5263. Following behind us were two teeny tiny Cherubs. They were very small and had wings. They were naked with short curly hair, and were neither sex. One was solid pink and the other, solid purple. It was like they were trying to keep me entertained, and they did! I was trying to catch or touch them, with much laughter and giggles. They were fluttering around us like humming birds.
NDE at age six months due to unknown illness. Shared sixty-seven years later.

2753. Brenda I NDEs 7/4/2011 & 2/19/2012. NDEs 5259/6202. I knew it was my last breath. I had such a peaceful feeling. I can only describe it as ‘a peace that passes all understanding.’ Shortly after that nanosecond of darkness, I remember a light so bright, it was as if I were on a very dark stage, having a feeling that someone far greater than any human was appearing before me. I knew I had died and my soul was telepathically communicating with God. I remember praying, ‘Dear Heavenly Father, I thought I had done something to prolong my life, but it looks as though I have done something to shorten it. Please forgive me for any sin that might be keeping me from Your presence.’
NDE at age 52 due to surgical complication, and NDE at age 5 due to drowning.

2752. Sara V NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5258. Then I remember hovering up in the corner of the room. I could see out the window, and it was raining. I could see my body on the table down where the two nurses and the doctor were, and I thought to myself, ‘This is very odd!’ I felt like I wanted to float out of the room. When I tried, I realized there were three entities behind me that would not let me. These entities were entirely black, and had a human shape. They spoke to me, but words did not come out of their mouths. Instead, we communicated through our minds. They told me I could not leave the room, and that they were there for my safety.
Probable NDE at age ten during operation for ruptured appendix.

2751. Patricia P NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5256. Explicit content – not for children. While I was floating above them at about the height of a rooftop, I was shown a scene of green rolling hills off in the distance, where an ambulance was taking my body away. So I told those two persons that I wasn’t finished on Earth yet. They turned towards each other and seemed to be pondering my statement.
NDE at age seventeen due to criminal attack.

2750. Jeff Probable NDE 7/4/2011. Probable NDE 5255. All I remember since I was no longer experiencing amnesia, was that there was very bright light and everything was white, very bright white. Nothing else. I remember a sheet covered my whole body, head and all.
Probable NDE due to auto accident.

2749. Karen R NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5254. I remember feeling this warm, calm feeling and being in a warm light like the sun. I felt at peace and felt like there were others there watching me, but never showing themselves. I felt I was receiving a gift from somewhere. I know I didn’t want to come back, because it was so peaceful there. I remember traveling to that same place all three times – but even when I came back to life, I didn’t realize I had died until my mom told me later.
NDE due to suicide attempt with overdose of blood pressure medication.

2748. Morgan A NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5253. I left my body during this experience, and I found myself with my dog Tramp, who had just passed away a month before. I wouldn’t be here now if it hadn’t been for Tramp – that dog is the closest thing to me in the whole world. Tramp had saved my life before, and here he was, doing it again – even after he was dead.
NDE due to carbon monoxide poisoning.

2747. Bruce NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5252. All of a sudden I was traveling through a tunnel at extreme speed – so fast that I had a sickening feeling. Before I could adjust, I found myself in a very ornate light-filled room with a throne that was very high up. Once again, I had a sickening feeling, but one of a different kind. I wanted desperately to hide from the presence of God, but there was no place to go to get away from his presence. I was shown a review of my entire life, with joys, difficulties, sorrows, and everything in between.
NDE from unconsciousness likely due to heart attack.

2746. Swas NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5243. Non-western NDE My soul flew from the space in between two of those rods. I felt like a bird. I immediately looked back and saw my pale and fragile frame, lying at the base of the window with eyes closed, saliva dripping out of the wide-open mouth and a skeletal right hand that was somehow entangled with one of the rods. I was shocked, but didn’t realize I was dead. I then flew above the row of houses in that area. I saw children playing in the park, telegraph poles, television antennas on the roof of our neighbor’s houses and wet clothes hanging on the balcony. As I flew more, I began to see unfamiliar faces shouting from the streets, young men discussing a cricket match.
Hindu NDE at age 6 from illness.

2745. Lori K NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5241. I was in the presence of Jesus. We seemed to be in a wide-open space, like a beautiful field or garden behind Jesus. I could see all my dead relatives there waiting for me like my father-In-law and my Grandpa Antonio and my Aunt Lillian and my Aunt Ruby and my Aunt Frances and my Great Aunt Stannie and my Uncle Bob. I recognized many more; I knew them all by their spirit, not by their bodies. They were all happy to see me and waiting for me until I was done talking to Jesus, it seemed like they were behind an unseen boundary.
NDE due to being struck by car.

2744. Pierre T NDE 7/3/2011. NDE 5216. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Jean Peter. In my experience, I feel like pure consciousness with no body limitations and no time limit. I feel that this part of me has always existed, even though the part of me that has been living this life hasn’t consciously known about it. I also feel profoundly that the problems I’ve been having are nothing. Like an iceberg, the greatest part of me, (the ‘underwater’ part) is this newly felt consciousness.
NDE from going unconscious.

2742. Mary Son Other 10/28/2009. Other 16047. Son’s drawing in first grade is premonition of death at age 20.

2741. Anna Probable NDE 6/30/2011. Probable NDE 5229. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon A. This Being was surrounded by light and by other people, but I could not see them well, they were like silhouettes, or shadows. I was told that I should not be there, that it was still not my time that I had to go back to those I had left on earth and solve the problems of my present and future life. I was also warned about what could happen if I committed the same act at some future time, along the lines of: ‘Death could stay with you without offering the chance to come back,’ and that I needed to cure the evil, which I had in my body (referring to the overdose). This was actually a warning made out of love.
Probable NDE from attempted suicide.

2740. Ella J NDE 5/27/2010. Secondhand NDE 16042. I entered a large hall. It was so long that I could not see the end of it. It was filled with people. As I was conducted through the throng, the first person I recognized was my Grandpa H. P. Jensen, who was sitting in one end of the room writing. He looked up and seemed surprised to see me. He said, ‘Why! There is my granddaughter, Ella!’ ‘He was very much pleased, greeted me and, as he continued with his writing, I passed on through the room and met a great many of my relatives and friends. It was like going along the crowded street of a large city where you meet many people, only a very few of whom you recognize. ‘The next one I knew was Uncle Hans Jensen with his wife, Mary Ellen. They had two small children with them. On inquiring who they were, he told me one was his own and the other was Uncle Will’s little girl.
Mormon NDE from 1891.

2739. Edward S NDE 6/25/2011. NDE 5239. Shortly, I heard talking and felt someone lift my arm, hold my wrist for a minute and then say, ‘Bag this one too, he’s dead.’ I said, ‘No, I’m not!’ and they went into high gear to get me out. After they got me out and into the ambulance, things became strange. It was like I was above the ambulance, watching it going to the hospital. Then, once I got there, I watched from above as they wheeled me into the emergency room. It was really strange.
NDE due to severe car crash.

2738. Linda D NDE 6/25/2011. NDE 5238. I was floating in this black void, totally conscious of myself and my identity. I was curious, but not afraid. There was nothing to see, just blackness. I had no idea what was going on, but I had the feeling of moving forward and going somewhere. I was extremely excited and happy. As I moved along, the happiness became intense joy. Then it changed. I had reached some sort of barrier and something indicated to me that I had to ‘go back.’
NDE due to being hit by car at age thirteen.

2737. HD M Possible NDE 6/25/2011. Possible NDE 5236. I was a life guard in New Jersey. Every day before the pool opened, I would hyperventilate dive in and swim the fifty-meter pool under water. That day I decided to take it a little farther. I would swim the fifty meters turn and swim another ten strokes then surface. I swam the fifty meters then counted three more strokes as I swam those strokes I looked to my left and saw the deeper blue of the diving area (eleven to twelve feet deep).
Possible NDE from drowning.

2736. Denise B Probable NDE 6/25/2011. Probable NDE 5234. From Mexico. Eventually, the doctor arrived to check on me. I handed him my coloring book where I had colored a picture of a doctor and little girl patient. The image I colored matched perfectly what my physician was wearing in that very moment! I had seen him and purposely colored the page to represent what I knew of him so he would surely believe I knew him prior to actually meeting him. In fact, when he entered my room he immediately began to introduce himself wherein I interrupted to inform him that I already knew him. That’s when I held up the coloring page and offered it as a gift to him for doing such a good job with my surgery. He denied the possibility that I could know him when we had not met until that moment. Nothing I would tell him convinced him. I explained that I had heard him talking to the people who were helping him. He denied the possibility of this claiming I was deeply sedated and could hear nothing. I told him I had heard him telling a story to my mom which he also denied.
Probable NDE due to surgery at age eight.

2735. John R NDE 6/25/2011. NDE 5231. From Canada While dead, I spoke to someone who told me to go back, that it was not my time. I was told to be patient because there was a need for me. I was also told not to try suicide again because I would not be successful.
NDE at age twenty-four due to suicide attempt. Another NDE due to complication of hypothermic heart-lung bypass surgery.

2734. Shawn M Probable NDE 6/25/2011. Probable NDE 5228. I felt my body shutting down. I was scared of the black void I was in, but found I was able to breathe. Then I felt calm. But I was brought back. I was angry about having to come back, because I had never felt that kind of joy while I was alive.
Probable NDE from suicide attempt.

2733. Robert J Probable NDE 6/25/2011. Probable NDE 5226. My father held me in his arms as he, my mother, and the elders prayed during which time I found myself floating near the ceiling of the bedroom. The whole prayer and OBE experience seemed very short, less than a minute.
Probable NDE from severe febrile illness at age four. Shared seventy-eight years later.

2732. Michael M Probable NDE 6/25/2011. Probable NDE 5225. From Australia. I died at the hospital, yet I could see and hear everything that was said during the entire time. Even through the coma I could see my children who came to visit, they just couldn’t hear me.
Probable NDE due to being hit by car.

2731. Charles N NDE 6/25/2011. NDE 5223. I was sent to a place where I found myself inside a large building like the Parthenon, with those big columns. To the right, I saw a crimson statue of some kind dragon or beast, like a Chinese lion. As I looked at the columns, I saw from between them that it was night. Coming from a doorway, which led in the direction of the right hand corner of the building, I saw a bright light. So I walked toward the light and, as I did, I saw a hallway, which turned to the right. Its walls were made of gray-veined granite, the kind of stone often used to build mausoleums.
NDE due to anesthetic complication.

2730. Albert S Probable NDE 6/25/2011. Probable NDE 5222. My hearing was fully tuned to that world. In the distance, I could hear musical wind-chimes, the gentle sounds of a waterfall. Every sound was perfect – soothing, peaceful, loving, harmonious and joyful to my soul. I experienced a sense, or state, of anticipation – perhaps it had to do with moving forward to meet my Maker (God) or looking forward to reaching my final, eternal destiny. The whole experience seemed altogether natural and purposeful. I felt completely content with it. The closer my spiritual body moved toward the light, the more peace, love and joyfulness I felt. I noticed that way up ahead of me, the valley in which I was traveling had an angular turning point from whence the light appeared to be emanating. When I was just about to reach that turning point, I became aware of my eyes slowly closing – and of remaining closed, as my spiritual body started travelling backward, speeding up faster and faster, back to where I had come from.
Probable NDE associated with operation

2729. Denise T NDE 1/30/2011. NDE 31943. I overdosed on pain meds and was dead for several minutes. I had to have adrenaline shot into my heart. While I was gone, I found myself lying in the grass in a big field filled with beautiful daisies of all different sizes. There were hills and trees in the distance. I experienced a feeling of great love and understanding. While I was there, I really didn’t want to leave that place, but I just knew that when I came back, everything would be OK!
NDE due to overdose of pain medications.

2728. Francoise A Probable NDE 6/24/2011. Probable NDE 5211. From Italy. Original in Italian, translated to English by Maurizio B. It was like a tunnel with a beautiful garden that had many flowers. There was a light at the end of the tunnel that grew steadily stronger and stronger. Alongside this light was my grandfather who had died approximately six or seven months ago. I smiled at him and felt happy to see him. He was smiling as if he felt well (when I had last seen him, he had always been suffering because he had been sick with cancer).
NDE from suicide attempt.

2727. Lorette C NDE 6/21/2011. NDE 5165. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Simon A. Then I saw a parade of photos of him and of me, on a boat. Yet I had forgotten these detailed memories, of these moments captured in these photos. As the photos passed before us, I remembered each of those moments. I felt as though I had become a bit drowsy, with my head still on his shoulder. Then, we separated. We were not on the ground; we were floating. He placed his hands on my shoulders, smiling at me gently, and a serene smile.
NDE from suicide attempt.

2726. Silvia A NDE 6/16/2011. NDE 5209. From Italy. Original in Italian, translated to English by Maurizio B. I wondered why there was so much excitement. I was in that wonderful peace, where I could not even imagine the pain. I felt my consciousness hovering over the doctors’ heads, as if I were preparing to leave my body.
NDE from choking.

2725. Emmett M NDE 6/12/2011. NDE 5219. I was in a sort of a room area that had three to five monks in it. There was something like a table that had little televisions on it, what I thought were funny typewriters. Later in my life, I recognized these as computers. At least three of the monks were standing in the left-hand portion of the room. Towards the back of the room was something like a large round doorway with very light colored fog in it. There appeared to be a bright light behind the slowly circling fog.
NDE at age eleven or twelve due to hanging. Shared about fifty-eight years later.

2723. Hal E FDE 6/5/2011. FDE 5215. All of the sudden, I ‘felt’ a voice. (I say ‘felt’ instead of ‘heard,’ because at that time, my ability to ‘hear’, or process sound was close to zero.) The voice said the following, ‘You are forgiven, but it is not your time yet.
Fear-Death Experience following auto accident.

2722. Jon J NDE 6/5/2011. NDE 5212. I was in a vast field, more beautiful than anything I’ve ever seen. There were flowers and grass abundant. I was standing on a small incline that dropped slightly until the field was flat. People made of crystalline light were in the field talking and loitering without a care, the field faded into forest about two hundred feet away. In the sky were moons of red, blue, green, orange, and the stars shone brighter and more gorgeous then any I’ve seen, it was either dusk, or night time but light enough to see perfectly. After seeing all that, the only thing I could say was ‘I’m finally home’
NDE due to head injury with apparent seizure. Interesting that a non-ordinary experience began immediately prior to head injury.

2721. MM Grandmother NDE 6/5/2011. Secondhand NDE 5210. From Norway, submitted in English. During this time, my grandmother said that she found herself suddenly somewhere near the ceiling, looking down at all the people surrounding her bed. She saw the midwife’s panic and her husband coming to her bedside, crying in despair. She also saw her two eldest daughters near the door, and then her mother pushing them into the next room. My grandmother turned around then and saw a bright light in the distance, as if it was through the wall of the bedroom. Then her own grandmother appeared beside her and said ‘Not yet.’
Second-person NDE. Was her Grandmother’s NDE at the time of delivery in 1934.

2719. Kyle R NDE 6/5/2011. NDE 5207. The next thing I experienced was darkness and a loud deep sound I can best describe as a deep vibration. I recall wondering at the time if it was my alarm clock (thinking I was back in college at the dorm). The darkness was then gone and I recall seeing the upper corner of the gym coming closer as if I were moving toward it. Then I recall looking down and seeing my partner holding up my slumped body. I would say I was off to the side about five feet and up about five to six, about ten feet off the gym floor.
NDE due to choking.

2718. Stanley S Possible NDE 5/29/2011. Possible NDE 5195. From Germany. As I placed my hand into His, I immediately found myself in a world of unconditional Love. Today, I feel that the hand was the hand of Jesus the Christ, Son of God. While my hand was in His, I discovered, felt, or believed that I was inside the mind of God. Although there was complete darkness, I felt that there was never a need for forgiveness here, that only unconditional Love existed. At that moment, it seemed to me that I was in the presence of all existing eternity. I believe to this day that what was communicated to me was simply this, ‘Don’t lie to yourself, nor to anyone.’
Possible NDE encounter with Jesus.

2717. Vera G NDE 5/29/2011. NDE 5201. Suddenly, I was traveling through space. All around me were stars, and up ahead I saw a pure white light. Then I found myself standing in a clearing – some sort of field that was surrounded by trees. I wasn’t alone. All around me were people, hundreds of them, maybe even thousands, but I didn’t know anyone. I didn’t know where I was or even who I was. You’d think that I would have been afraid, but I wasn’t. It was like nothing mattered, not who I was, not who anyone was, and not even where I was, or if I’d be going anywhere. Everyone was talking and laughing. I felt like we all knew each other, but I don’t remember recognizing anyone.
NDE at age 15 due to unconsciousness with seizure.

2716. Dale T NDE 5/29/2011. NDE 5198. From Canada Suddenly, I was observing the event from a corner of the room near the ceiling. I could ‘see’ ME lying on the floor, and my brother and mother watching helplessly. Beside me, in my corner near the ceiling, I sensed a being. I did not know who this being was, but it seemed to me that he was a spiritual ‘big brother’ that I had known since forever. Together we watched the events occurring below, as though it was all pre-planned. I knew that we would just wait a bit until things changed somehow, and then we would know when it was the right time, which would be when I would go back to my body.
NDE due to choking/suffocating on food at age six. Shared 55 years later.

2715. Matteo M NDE 5/29/2011. NDE 5197. From Italy As I continued on, the blackness faded and I entered into a space – a place, a dimension that I don’t know how to name, which was all white. It seemed to be a perfect white – emanating heat, light, serenity, tranquility, and understanding. I felt good there. I was just my soul – I did not have a sense of my body. I saw people at the bottom left, but they did not seem interested in me. Right in front of me, I saw a sort of silhouette coming towards me, but I couldn’t identify what it was, because it/he/she was too bright. I think the figure spoke to me, and maybe I spoke with it. Anyway, something happened, but I can’t remember what, or what words were said (it was actually telepathy, more than words. We communicated without physical speech).
NDE due to auto accident.

2714. Marie C NDE 5/25/2011. NDE 5117. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Jean Peter. I was outside of my body, watching myself from above. I saw myself lying in my bed, my arms down by my side. I felt so soothed – very calm and light. When I stopped watching myself ‘sleeping,’ I saw in front of me a very bright corridor without walls. It was a pale white at the beginning and it became brighter and brighter towards the end. As I went into the tunnel, I felt as if I were pushing my way through light, fluffy cotton. I felt wonderful! Suddenly I felt myself falling back into my body.
NDE from imminent life threatening event.

2713. Early Native American NDEs 5/7/2013. NDE 16038.


2712. Pamela J NDE 5/22/2011. NDE 5192. I went into labor and then had to have an emergency cesarean section. It went bad. I was drowning in the fluids of my own body and from the childbirth. I was a chain smoker and I couldn’t breathe. Then I saw a bright white light – beautiful, peaceful – and I was being drawn into the light, but I was being held back for some reason, like it was not my time. I heard the nurse say, ‘Show her baby to her; it could be for the last time.’ I didn’t want to ‘come back’ to life. Where I was it was so peaceful and I wanted to stay there, I was not afraid.
NDE due to complications of childbirth.

2711. Niel L NDE 5/22/2011. NDE 5191. From South Africa. The next thing I remember is seeing my mother jumping the pool fence and diving into the pool. Her image was distorted as if I was looking through the water. Next, I remember lots of shouting and crying and my family all huddled over something. I remember trying to talk to them, but they couldn’t see or hear me. Then I remember a tunnel with a light at the end. It was a very bright light, but it did not hurt my eyes. I can remember not wanting to return to my body, but being forced to go back
NDE at age four due to drowning.

2710. Carol I NDE 5/22/2011. NDE 5188. You could call it a ‘life review’ but it was more in-depth than that. It was multi-faceted. These were the facets. First, I experienced incidents from my life from my own point of view, second, from the point of view of whoever was with me, and third, from the point of view of a witness, a watcher of sorts, all simultaneously. One occasion I relived affected me deeply. I was in the eighth grade and was with my friends at school leading them on in verbally abusing another one of our friends. It was cruel behavior and I was drenched in it. I got to be me and experience that secret little thrill you get when you are cleverly mean to someone.
NDE due to complication of aplastic anemia.

2709. Mateo NDE 5/22/2011. NDE 5171. From Argentina. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon A. I felt that I was in my body but I could not move, and far off I could see a little light. Something told me I should follow it. I followed it until it got brighter and brighter, and then something told me that it was not my time and that I had to go back. I was feeling very happy and did not want to return, I felt that I should stay.
NDE happened at age eight and shared at age thirteen.

2708. Erika B Probable NDE 5/17/2011. Probable NDE 5186. It was strange because I felt throughout this entire experience like I was in my body; and, even though my eyes were shut, I could still see him. In a way, I was not really there. Yet I could feel, hear, and see everything going on around me. I saw mostly my husband screaming and slapping me, trying to wake me up. And I was screaming back at him to stop hitting me. I kept yelling, ‘I’M AWAKE, I’M FINE!!’ I was yelling for what seemed like ten minutes, when I realized that he couldn’t hear me – that no one could hear me.
Probable NDE due to alcohol poisoning.

2707. Yvonne S NDE 5/17/2011. NDE 5185. I’m somewhere around the ceiling looking down at my body on the table. That was when I noticed all the people in the room. They were doing things quickly, crowding around the table and me. A guy went to the speaker on the wall and said, ‘Code red!’ and then called for my chest x-rays. From my place near the ceiling, I answered him. I told him that they didn’t have my chest x-rays, because they hadn’t taken any. But he did not appear to hear me.
NDE due to complication after surgery.

2706. Chris O NDE 5/17/2011. NDE 5184. I see myself standing over there in the darkness. I was asking both of my-selves simultaneously, ‘What are you doing there? You don’t belong there.’ It lasted, to me, about two to three seconds. In the next memory, some of the bigger boys are dragging me. As I start to get my feet back underneath me, I have an indescribable sense of elation or maybe it was euphoria? Having regained consciousness, I tell my friends that ‘I feel like I just came from home!’
Brief NDE due to fall from bridge at age seven.

2705. Alan M FDE 5/17/2011. FDE 5181. From New Zealand. I didn’t see my ‘life flash before my eyes’ or any of the typical things you hear about – as there wasn’t the time for this, I imagine. But, I just remember thinking to myself – ‘This is gonna hurt!’ Then, out of nowhere, I hear another ‘voice’ (not my own) saying, ‘Alan, you’re about to die.’
Fear death experience from dramatic fall nearly one thousand feet in a hang glider.

2704. Brenda H NDE 1/18/2011. NDE 22491. I fell and the next thing I knew, I was in bed in a hospital room. But I was also up near the ceiling, looking down at myself in the bed. My Mom and my Grandma were at my Grandma’s house, and I saw them there, crying. Next thing I saw was the Universe. Then I saw the light. It kept asking me to come to it. I saw my relatives in line. They told me to go to the light, too. I finally got to the light, and a voice told me that I have to go back – that they are not ready for me yet – because I still have some things to do. The next thing I remember, is being back in my body.
NDE at age 4 due to fall down escalator.

2703. Francisco J NDE 5/17/2011. NDE 5128. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon A. Then I saw my whole life in fast-forward. When I woke up there were a lot of people around me, asking me if I was okay, and I told them I was in a bit of pain, then asked them how many hours I had been there. They told me that I had not been there for hours, but just for a few seconds.
NDE from going unconscious on the playground as a child.

2702. Christophe NDE 5/9/2011. NDE 5116. From France I feel I am lying on some surface, though. I see a white light in the distance, like a lobby entrance or an opened door. The light is coming closer, or, rather, I feel I am going toward the light – as if I were walking but without walking, I feel my body does not move. It is very hard to describe. Once I arrive close to the light, a being on my right stops me. Without recognizing him by his appearance, I know who he is – he is my Grandfather. He tells me something like, ‘No, not now, go back.’
NDE from accident.

2701. Joe M NDE 5/7/2011. NDE 5180. All of a sudden, a deep peace filled me unlike anything I’ve felt before or since (even when I was doing drugs). This is the hard part to describe, a darkness, pitch black, ‘enveloped’ me at the same time but ‘enveloped’ is only as close as I can get to explaining it. It wasn’t scary. It was warm, comforting and safe, safer than I’ve ever felt before.
NDE due to drowning at age seventeen.

2700. Christopher N NDE 5/7/2011. NDE 5174. When I came out of my coma, one of the first things I asked her, was ‘Why were you crying?’ and she stated she wasn’t. Then I told her that I had seen her from across the room. When I told her that, the hair stood up on the back of her neck, she told me later. Then she admitted that she had wanted to be strong for me, so she would turn away from me in the bed in order to try to keep me from seeing her weakness. I explained that I had been over by the doorway, out of my body, and that when she had turned to cry, she was actually facing right toward me.
NDE from being shot three time with hemorrhage from femoral artery.

2699. Rosa D NDE 5/7/2011. NDE 5104. From Argentina. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon A. Then I saw the room as a glass box, and I could see my relatives outside. When I returned to where my body was, I saw my maternal grandfather to my left (he had died three years before my birth), and to my right was my godfather (who died when I was eight years old). They took me by my hands. Around them was a very beautiful blue light and I felt warmth in their hands. Then, above my head there appeared a tunnel. Many beings were there, and I felt their happiness on seeing me. My grandfather and my godfather told me I must be strong, as it was not yet my time, and I couldn’t join them.
NDE from surgery complications.

2698. Scott H NDE 4/16/2011. NDE 16033. And the light was with me. It was in this curtain of mist about head-level, and it wasn’t a type of light that was blinding. It had a warm, emanating energy from it. It was a combination white/yellow/orange, and it had a warmth, a love, a type of love that I’ve never experienced. Most people would never be able to comprehend that level of love. A complete and total unconditional love. In the knowledge that forgiveness that God has for us I can’t begin to describe. It blows me away to this day.

2697. Gregg S NDE 5/2/2011. NDE 3049. There I met three other human forms. I was informed that we had all incarnated in the past together. We were once a family. The truth, knowledge, and wisdom they all contained made them look multitudes of light years ahead of me. They showed me basic Universal laws that exist between the physical and spiritual planes. I was shown the properties of the Law of Attraction, the responsibilities one has over one’s own space in this matrix of existence since, and everything is truly interconnected. And whatever you do, really does affect all eventually. This was beyond euphoria.
NDE from hang gliding accident.

2696. Tracey J Possible Pet Dog NDE 11/9/2010. NDE 31920. From Canada The puppy was neutered last week and it developed complications during the surgery. It flat lined momentarily but was revived. I recently brought him home wearing the ‘cone’ and I am not supposed to give him very much activity because of his stitches and the surgery ordeal. In the drawer there was a photo of my dad, upside down, which I stuck in the drawer a couple of days ago planning to put in an album one day. The dog usually goes crazy for his brush. He sniffed around in the drawer, his tail wagged like crazy, and then he pulled out the photo very carefully and gingerly carried it in his mouth. He put it in his crate. He has never carried paper before without chewing it apart (he absolutely loves eating paper). This was so odd. He can’t get in the crate because his cone is too large but he set the photo in the crate on his pillow, just inside the door, then went to sleep on the floor. I believe that during my dog’s ‘flat line’ moments in surgery, he must have seen my father. Nothing else explains him putting dad’s picture in the crate, or rushing off to dad’s grave when he had no way of understanding the significance.
Possible pet dog ADC with complication of neutering resulting in flat lining, then inexplicable awareness of contributor’s deceased father.

2695. Leonard NDE 4/30/2011. NDE 5170. First, I saw the bright light, unlike any light on Earth. I went through the light at a very fast speed and felt no pain, no hunger, and not even any gravity. As a matter of fact, I don’t think people on Earth ever feel the way I felt. But it’s hard to explain. Then I saw this black curtain open to a color I had never seen here on Earth. I couldn’t see anyone there. Then I heard my grandfather’s voice say ‘There he is!’ in a very happy tone.
NDE from heroin overdose.

2694. Marty M NDE 4/30/2011. NDE 5169. I saw plants and blue sky forming. Somehow, I sensed welcome and love from them. As they materialized, I felt I was way out in the country in a meadow. When they began to form in front of me, I sensed something wonderful was beyond them. I couldn’t wait to get beyond them to explore, when suddenly I sensed I couldn’t move. I looked down and saw a vast area. Within the area, I saw many little individual areas. One flashed, and at that point, I knew it was this life, and I had to come back.
NDE due to heart attack.

2693. Liz G NDE 4/30/2011. NDE 5168. During this experience, my baby consciousness changed to one of a mature, or even an ageless person. I didn’t feel as if I was of any particular age (certainly not the age of two) but as if I had already experienced a full life. I was feeling peaceful and calm about the events that were occurring. I felt as though everything was understood and everything was the way it should be.
NDE at age two due to drowning.

2692. Derrick Birth Experiences 4/30/2011. Other 5167. I remember this being had massive hands and he cradled and caressed me in his hands. I remember him having a voice that was deep, strong and powerful but yet gentle and loving at the same time. I don’t know for sure what he said to me since I couldn’t understand language at the time but I could think in concepts or feelings such as I could easily tell if someone was talking in a loving way, sad way or angry way. I remember being in a the most wonderful state of peace and love that even to this day I have never felt anything close to. I remember seeing either the spirits or the spirit bodies of other babies that were about to be fitted with their earthly body. They were like swirling around this powerful being who was holding me and even looked like they could have been coming forth every time he spoke.
Pre-birth and during-Birth Remembrance. Memories of weeks after birth verified with parents and are medically plausible.

2691. William C NDE 4/30/2011. NDE 5166. When I focused my eyes, I saw the light in front of me illuminating everything around me. There were figures to the right of me that looked like they were moving to the music. In the foreground stood a woman, my grandmother! She was beautiful. I had never met her. She had died of ovarian cancer when my mother was only a girl. First, she told me that I was welcome and I could stay.
NDE at age seventeen due to complication of hospitalization following auto accident.

2690. Jody M Probable NDE 4/30/2011. Probable NDE 5160. I cut through a vein in my left arm. I lay on the bed for about two hours and bled. I got up with a flashlight and went to the bathroom to see if I could stop the bleeding. As I was trying to stitch the lesion, I noticed that I was getting very weak throughout my upper body. Very soon all light faded away and my body collapsed to the floor. I saw the face of the woman that I was in love with, and I saw my own face simultaneously, next to hers. (She is still alive, just to let you know.) The background behind us was like a vortex. I felt very serene. She may have been my merit that saved me from death.
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt.

2689. Nem J NDE 4/30/2011. NDE 5101. From Morocco. Original in French, translated to English by Jean Peter. I recall a moment when I found myself up in the corner of the hospital room near the ceiling. There was also much light – an almost blinding white light. Looking down, I saw a part of my body and my legs, as well as my parents and the doctors standing around me. One of them was wearing white, the other one, blue. He was young and blond. This lasted for just a few seconds.
NDE from attempted suicide.

2688. Jaroslaw D NDE 3/26/2012. NDE 16031. From Poland, Original in Polish. My dad and a nurse tore off my clothes. I watched the doctor check my ribs, and then the bones in my arms or legs. He is looking for fractures, but there are none. I see it happen, and I know they are ok. He then checks my spine. There is no visible damage, but my body is limp. ‘Doctor, the pulse is weak,’ says the nurse. I watch someone run into the room and finally tell the doctor that I had fallen from a tree. I can hear my mother. She is crying in despair.
NDE at age 12 due to falling from a tree.

2687. Esterlein B NDE 4/28/2011. NDE 5100. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. I was suspended in a kind of starry sky which had the form of an ellipse, and around me were those same ‘women’ that I had seen many years before when I was in bed. They were holding hands and circling and circling, singing to me. They took me towards a very distant light; it was as if I were floating in space. Since then, I’ve read that others sometimes go through a tunnel, but that is not what my experience was like. I felt very good.
Beginning of a NDE from fainting.

2686. Cherie J Probable NDE 4/25/2011. Probable NDE 5040. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Jean Peter. Then I am weightless, all is blue around me; there is a kind of light bridge to cross. At the other end of the bridge, there is more of the same blue – it’s a blue path, and on it, there are people dressed in white robes, like monks. Their heads are covered, too. I don’t see their faces but I trust them. One of the people parts from the group, looks at me, and waves me away with his hand, telling me to go back to where I came from. I feel strongly that I don’t want to, I’d like so much to join them! I feel that this is my grandfather (whom I never knew personally; he died when I was seven months old). I ask him why he doesn’t want me to join them, and he tells me, ‘This is not your time; you have something very important to do right now.’
Probable NDE from childbirth complications.

2685. Wanda C NDE 4/23/2011. NDE 5155. Some knowledge came to me and it went like this, ‘You have been together and in relationship to each other for eternity. You are bonded, and this will always be. Do not be afraid of losing anyone, as this simply does not happen.’ I took it to mean that we may live and die during this life, but we will also live and die again and again – together in different forms. The love between us is eternal. Our selves are eternal. Our bond is eternal.
NDE due to stopping breathing while under dental anesthesia.

2684. Haley A NDE 4/23/2011 & 5/22/2011. NDE 5190/5154. Once there I saw a short woman, but she did not look human, rather she looked both bright and transparent at the same time. I knew her; she was my grandmom who passed away when I was an infant. She did not tell me, I just knew. She was with another person, I knew it was my brother who passed away before I was born (I did not know I had a brother that died at the time). My grandmom was telling me to go back, but I felt so good there that I wanted to stay. It was so peaceful. She then started to say, ‘Jack. Jack she will not go’. Then my father came out to see me and he held me. It was so right, like I was home. (My father had died when I was 6)
NDE at age 9 from head trauma. Met deceased brother that she did not know she had until the NDE.

2683. Camilla F Probable NDE 4/17/2011. Probable NDE 5103. From Sweden. Original in Swedish translated to English by Maria A. At the end of the tunnel, I came closer to the light. It got brighter. I saw a figure made of shining light in front of me. I could only see the contours of the person, as if through a fog or haze. I felt such love and warmth. I felt I could have stayed there forever; this love surpassed any love I had ever experienced. The figure showered me with love – stronger love than from my parents or others. A love I had never felt before, it filled my whole body and soul. I felt unconditional love flowing to me from this figure of light; it filled me with happiness and it was everything I had ever needed.
Life-threatening event not defined at age fifteen, but was in a tent and awoke next day at parents, suggesting likely unconsciousness.

2682. Tami N Probable NDE 4/17/2011. Probable NDE 5152. I met some new people and talked to them; they had died, too. I didn’t know why I was meeting them, because I had not known them before they died. They just said that later on I would know why. Now I do. After I came back to this life, I met the best friend of one of those people, now that person is MY best friend. Another one of them, a lady that had died, she told me I had to go back and take care of her husband. I had been out of the hospital for a couple of weeks, when I met him. We both felt a special connection and are still together now… And also, my BFF (‘best friend forever’) – we shared details about his friend who had died – (details which I would not have been able know except for having met him) and he corroborated that everything I remembered about that person was accurate. And the boyfriend I have now – (he is the person whose wife requested I go back and take care of) we talk about his wife (she died over sixteen years ago) and he confirms everything I remember about her, too.
Probable NDE due to severe accident.

2681. Dewayne NDE 4/17/2011. NDE 5150. When I was nineteen years old, I was stabbed numerous times with a butcher knife. I apparently lost an extreme amount of blood and went unconscious. I then remember floating above my body while emergency personnel were working on my body. It was as if the emergency vehicle was cut open and I could see the individuals inside it working on my body. I distinctly remember thinking. ‘They are cutting up my favorite pants.’
NDE from blood loss due to stabbing.

2680. Michael J Possible NDE 4/17/2011. Possible NDE 5148. From the Philippines. I was feeling good and relaxed, telling myself, ‘This is it; I am dead.’ Then I felt myself rising up to where everything was bright white. Suddenly, I was in presence of a human form who was clothed in white. I couldn’t see the face. I told myself that this figure must be Saint Peter, holding the key to Heaven. Then the figure spoke to me in English, saying, ‘What are you doing here?’ I answered, ‘I do not know.’ The voice said to me, ‘Go back.’
Spontaneous Out of Body Experience (SOBE), possible NDE from the Philippines.

2679. Evelyn V Probable NDE 2/21/2010. Probable NDE 16028. Then I flashed through a black space tunnel at supersonic speeds. A small light was at the end. That light became brighter and brighter, bigger and bigger until I stood in front of a white brilliantly shining figure. I could not see a face, only the bright white robe. I had no fear and the loneliness was gone. It was a state of complete joy and happiness that I had never experienced before. Take the happiest moment of your life and magnify it thousands of times. Then I saw to my left an image of Steve, my husband and John, my son, standing at a distance to my far left. I knew that I had to go back to them even though I was never happier and content. I said to the figure, ‘I must go back to them, please let me go back and I’ll come back again. They need me!’ In a flash, I came back.
Coma event that is a probable NDE.

2678. Denise C NDE 4/16/2011. NDE 5143. I was at one end of a tunnel and I saw a group of people at the other end of it. From the background, a strong light was emanating, outlining the crowd with a beautiful yellow light. I could not see any of their faces – it was too dark. Two of the men, I knew, were my Irish grandfather’s brothers. I could tell that’s who they were because they were wearing the same type of hat my grandfather wore – those wool hats from the 1930s and 1940s. Then, I believe, Jesus spoke to me. It was such an incredible voice! The voice said, ‘DENISE! GO BACK! IT’S NOT YOUR TIME YET!’
NDE at age ten due to illness.

2677. Geri R NDE 4/16/2011. NDE 5142. I had had enough of the pain and the tugging and the forceps and the pulling and the bleeding I was floating towards a beautiful golden-bronzed light. It was there that I saw my mother and my husband holding hands smiling at me, they looked so happy and at peace. I wanted to feel that my mother smiled at me and took my hands and for that brief instant I felt it, I felt the peace and tranquility, and it felt so good.
NDE due to complication during dental procedure.

2676. Fran E NDE 4/16/2011. NDE 5140. I was fascinated, not scared. I saw a small ‘pin prick’ of light in the upper right hand corner. Then beautiful crystals of light began coming through the small opening. The crystals were like a waterfall and just kept coming and coming. It was absolutely beautiful. I am unable to really describe it.
NDE due to heart attack and two cardiac arrests. Contributor is a nurse.

2675. Cara S NDE 4/16/2011. NDE 5139. I then felt my father taking me by the hand and my spirit rising from my body as I could see nurses and surgeon working on my body. I saw a tunnel and bright lights, and felt the presence of other dead people going towards the light through the tunnel. Then as I was getting nearer to the light I was stopped, and my father asked if I wanted to continue, but there would be no return to earth. I said no, I had to get back to my sons.
NDE following surgery.

2674. Robert FDE 4/16/2011. FDE 5138. I felt helpless and could not steer (and I don’t mean the tractor) and unable to get back and comfort my family and friends who were devastated by my tragic accident – well, actually, stupidity. So much in so short a time that it would take to plunge that distance.
Fear-Death Experience at age sixteen from fall over a cliff while on a tractor.

2673. Linda F FDE 7/31/2011 & 4/16/2011. FDE 6623/5136. I was trying and trying to swim, not quite in a panic, but all of a sudden I stopped thrashing about and I remember looking around the empty pool. There were people above talking but not paying any attention to me. They didn’t know I was down there and a sudden wave of peaceful calmness came over me, and I remember saying to myself, ‘so this is what it’s like to drown.’ I was ok with it. I thought of nothing, not my parents or friends, etc. I had a very calm attitude. A wave of complete peace came over me. I felt like I never had before; no worries anymore, just a matter of fact attitude and an acceptance of a certain death.
Fear-death experience from near drowning and other experiences.

2672. Debbie B NDE 4/16/2011. NDE 5134. I was met by my mother who had passed two years earlier. From a distance, I saw family members that had also passed. My mother told me to come with her. We walked down this long sandy path. When I saw a clearing, I heard a sound from behind me that made me stop in my tracks. I was told that it was not my time yet – that my husband and I had a lot to do and that many people would be counting on us.
NDE from heart attack.

2671. Judi M Probable NDE 1/22/2011. Probable NDE 22469. I’d then be directed to start grinding a type of grain with a mortar and pestle. I’d chat with others at the scene. I didn’t feel particularly important, like a leader. I feel like support to a larger group. The work and chatting seemed to last a while. It felt so natural and peaceful. Then, when, in real life, treatments would restore my vital signs and doctors would call my name, and I went into a lighter coma stage, the man said ‘they are calling for you. You have to go back. We’ll be here when you return.’
Probable NDE due to blood illness. Interesting experience in apparent 16th century town.

2670. Willem NDE 4/5/2011. NDE 5133. From the Netherlands. Then I came into a tunnel/or better; it felt like I went up in spirals. The light was blue-green (it could have been the water) and there was a peaceful sound (not music but ‘sound’). I arrived and there was a ‘person in light’ waiting. He/she took me by the hand and we just stood there for a while. It felt like getting home; more THIS WAS HOME. The person in the light and I were totally equal; there was only love without any boundary. And then I was told to go back. I did not want to; I was ordered to go back because there were ‘things for me to do down there’.
NDE due to drowning at age two. From the Netherlands, shared in English.

2669. Dawn W NDE 4/5/2011. NDE 5132. I was in a dark warm breezy place. It was full of stars. Voices where speaking, though not out of their mouths. The people looked like film negatives and I know they were failing somehow. There was a debate with another entity about my fate. I couldn’t see him. I could only feel the knowledge and peace, and joy, like the answer to every question I ever had was answered.
NDE due to accident.

2668. Margaret J NDE 4/5/2011. NDE 5131. The next thing I knew I was jumping on the clouds, I thought this is great this is wonderful I don’t care about all those people I left behind. It was so very beautiful. Years later, as I got to fly on a plane, I saw the same beautiful look of those clouds.
NDE due to auto accident.

2667. Robert E NDE 4/5/2011. NDE 5130. Next thing I knew, I was on a beach and sky was so beautiful and bright, the sand was so white everything was so peaceful. Then a figure appeared from a distance that looked like a lady holding a child by the hand. The figure waved at me once then again and said, ‘No, go back.’
NDE due to episode of unconsciousness during illness.

2666. Geary S NDE 4/5/2011. NDE 5129. As I floated up to the ceiling area, I was watching the medical team working to place a tube down my throat so they could pump my stomach. I watched them while they were talking back and forth with each other and working on me at the same time. I seemed to float over the wall. I was above the hallway just outside the door to the room that I was in. I remember seeing a nurse standing in the hallway, right below me and she was writing something on a small tablet. When she finished writing, she slipped the tablet and the pen into one of the pockets of her uniform. The pocket was located on the skirt portion of her uniform, about an arm’s length down.
NDE due to accidental overdose.

2665. Karen W Probable NDE 4/5/2011. Probable NDE 5126. I was reaching toward the light with my right arm – wanted to go into the light. No thoughts of anything else at all – I could make out the figure from a distance inside the light, which I KNEW was the Resurrected Christ. He had his Right hand up, along with his index and middle fingers only. As I got closer, those two fingers went down and that’s when I went backwards with unimaginable G-force. I explain it to people in my area as ‘like going in reverse on the ‘Laser Loop’, and older roller-coaster at nearby Kennywood Park, now defunct. I DID NOT WANT TO GO BACK!!!!!!!
Probable NDE due to bleeding due to diverticula.

2664. Joy R NDE 1/16/2011. NDE 22463. At some point, I was floating in the air, not my body, but my spirit. I saw a crowd gathering on the landing by the pool and I was able to see that it was me on the floor. I saw my friends Fay and Jess crying while everyone was screaming call the ambulance, ‘Is she ok?’ It was then that some force drew me to the most beautiful and peaceful place that I have ever experienced.
NDE due to drowning at age 14.

2663. Alfredo NDE 4/5/2011. NDE 5064. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon A. Then I started to see a far distant light and my happiness and placidness went on growing. As I approached the light, I could see that it came from a door, or a frame without a door, as if a white rectangle were drawn on a black card. The light, which shone from this door, bears no comparison even with the light of a thousand stars together, the luminosity was indescribable, but incredibly, it did not harm the eyes. When I was near the door, I saw a woman, outside in the void, with hair down to her waist. She wore a white gown to the ankles and beckoned me with her left hand, gesturing for me to approach her.
NDE from childhood fainting game.

2662. Nilda P NDE 4/5/2011. NDE 5123. From Brazil. Original in Portuguese, translated to English by C. Rodrigues. He said, ‘I am going to show you some things.’ Then, in the distance, I saw a globe that looked like the moon during an eclipse. He said, ‘That is the Earth,’ and I saw many points of light in the globe. Then he said, ‘In every point of light there is someone praying, if all the people on Earth could pray, it would look like that,’ and the Earth became illuminated as the sun. ‘But so is not,’ and the globe darkened again.
Remarkable NDE!

2661. Mary I Probable NDE 4/2/2011. Probable NDE 5110. From Portugal. Original in Portuguese, translated into English by C. Rodrigues. My eyes were focused on the switch when I noticed people rushing into my bedroom. I saw a hand moving closer to the switch and at this moment, and before the light was on, I felt that I was ‘ascending’. I felt great relief, I had no more pain or discomfort, and I had come out from a situation that in all aspects was terrible. I looked downwards full of curiosity, I tried to look at me but I couldn’t see myself clearly, just a figure half hidden by the people around; my bed was away from the wall and there were many people moving on both sides of the bed.
Beginnings of an OBE from abortion complications.

2660. Barbara P NDE 10/11/2010. NDE 31904. I had a terrible vehicle accident. My boyfriend’s brothers found me. They called EMS. I went to the hospital.

After a few days was able to recall what occurred out of my present body.
NDE due to auto accident.

2659. Sylvianne R Possible NDE 3/28/2011. Possible NDE 5060. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Magalie. I felt myself leaving, as if I were being sucked in towards a tunnel that was illuminated with a bright yellow light (like the one you can see on a summer morning while watching a sunrise). I was floating. I felt good – and mainly I wasn’t feeling pain anymore – it was all gone. I rested while I was floating, I felt marvelously great. I couldn’t see myself floating in the light (although I could feel it happening,) but I understood it to be my Self. When I looked down, I saw my husband sleeping and I saw my body beside him. Seeing this, suddenly I panicked and didn’t want to be sucked into the tunnel.
Possible NDE from pain.

2658. Denise NDE 3/28/2011. NDE 5122. There were colors – brilliant colors everywhere. I was an array of beautiful moving, shimmering, vibrating, and colors. He came closer and said, ‘Do you understand now?’ I realized I was pure energy, spirit, and part of a flowing consciousness; while still remaining ‘Denise’. At that moment, he shared his name, ‘John’. As we moved, he also shared with me what was happening.
Exceptional NDE due to illness, and a must read. Remarkable apparent shared NDE with person unknown to her. Remarkable encounter with ‘John’ with discussion of free will. Later mystical experience led to identification of who John was.

2657. Carrie S NDE 3/28/2011. NDE 5124. I remember being above my bed and watching everything from above. I heard everything the doctors and nurses said but I could not respond. In the corner of the room above the bed was a good friend who had died the year before. There was a bright light behind her. Then she hugged me and told me to go back down.
NDE due to anaphylactic allergic reaction.

2656. Patricia B NDE 3/28/2011. NDE 5125. As I panicked and struggled to breathe and survive, a wave came. I went under and the next thing I knew I was up above the water looking down at all the people along the shoreline watching in fear. I saw up above in a distance I can’t describe groups of people standing in the light. The light was very bright. It was very calm, peaceful, quiet, comforting. It felt like they were beckoning me and I begged them not to take me yet. My whole life flashed before me. I told them my loved ones needed me, would miss me too much, and wouldn’t understand and that I wasn’t ready to go yet with them. There seemed to be other groups of majestic people in the infinite distance, in a vast perspective, floating together in groups, not necessarily familiar, in different layers, in the distance in the light. I felt at ease, understood, loved and comforted, peaceful, but driven to go back to my body and survive.
NDE due to drowning.

2655. Manuel H NDE 3/28/2011. NDE 5121. Then I was sitting next to my then recently deceased son. It was really bright. I had a feeling of instant pain, then nothing. I saw my life, and I questioned my existence here and wondered about my daughter too. My son asked me in a calm voice, (he seemed to be really at peace, too.) ‘What are you going to do? Are you going to come with me, or not?’ I went with him and found myself sitting in a church with him. My head was bowed, and he was praying with me. (Note: In life, my son had not been a very religious man.)
NDE due to drug overdose. This experience occurred a few days prior to it being shared.

2654. CL Possible NDE 3/28/2011. Possible NDE 5120. For a few seconds, I could feel the doctor cutting me. It was an incredibly hot, hot feeling. I was aware of what was going on and the fact that I could feel the doctor cutting me, but I could not communicate this with anyone. I could not speak and I could not open my eyes or move. I’m told that that probably was the anesthesia starting to work. Anyway, the next thing I knew, I was waking up and I had this incredible need to write down all these images and voices and feelings that I had had. I spoke to the doctor and one of the nurses who were in the operating room and they confirmed some of the events that were so vivid to me.
Possible NDE due to internal bleeding and emergency surgery.

2653. Katalin F NDE 3/28/2011. NDE 5118. As soon as I resigned to go rather than defy him, the decision was made. We instantly and with great force, moved away from the light. As we were moving, I watched him in amazement. He looked very much like a God in the form of a lightning bolt. So handsome and strong and powerful! There we were back in the river next to my body and without hesitation he put his mouth over my body’s mouth and he breathed life back into it and in an instant he was gone as if he had never even been there. I felt his absence it was so dark, cold, lonely, and pointless without him. I watched my body come up to catch my first breath.
NDE at age sixteen from drowning. Remarkable description of apparent supernatural assistance with escape from drowning.

2652. Marianna C NDE 3/28/2011. NDE 5115. From Canada. I remember my sister and I trying to swim back to shore. I was concerned for my sister we held hands for a bit.

NDE due to drowning.

2651. Glenda Probable NDE 1/4/2013 & 3/28/2011. Probable NDE 5112/6553. I got about two foot away from my body and it was totally dark, and I remember feeling total weightlessness, and at the same time I was totally void of any emotion at all. Then, without hearing a voice, I ‘knew’ that I was being told to go back into my body, and I remember saying, ‘Ok.’ Then, a split second later, I was back in my body.
Probable NDE due to stated heart attack.

2650. Harold N NDE 3/28/2011. NDE 5107. From Australia. I saw I was ‘flying’ over a bay, which was a deep blue and had lovely sandy beaches. Just out from the bay was what appeared to be a volcanic tropical island. The sun was high in the sky. Sitting at anchor in the bay was an unusual large sailing ship with one huge sail but with multiple decks – at least three. There were tiny people crowding the uppermost deck of the sailing ship and beckoning to me.
NDE due to cardiac arrest following procedure for treating hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

2649. Martina D NDE 3/28/2011. NDE 5105. From Canada. I wasn’t walking or floating, it’s like someone was carrying me but couldn’t see who it was. Then the shadowy lights got bigger and the more I was moving through the path I guess the more the light got brighter. Then I remember asking myself clearly if I was still under water but wasn’t feeling pain of out of breath, all I wanted is to see why it was so bright. That’s when I saw and felt a presence reaching for me, no face, no body, just shadowy lines in a form of a ‘v’ all in white. I’m not sure if it was reaching for me but at that moment I felt pushed away like I have been sucked out a tube.
NDE at the age of four from drowning.

2648. Lorraine J NDE 3/22/2011. NDE 5045. From Germany. Original in German, translated to English by Amy. I was flying through a tunnel very fast but it felt weird. I heard a noise, like a wind sound. It was all so crazy! The tunnel was black, pitch-black. Then it got light again. At the end of the tunnel was a light. The walls of the tunnel kept moving away from one another. It felt like I was in a cave with smooth walls. It seemed very big and damp. I didn’t know what I was doing here and it seemed as though a long time had passed. This place seemed familiar but I couldn’t put my finger on it. I waited in the middle of the tunnel or cave.
Interesting NDE as a child where she was shown her future husband and told he would be ill but survive – and it did come to pass. She was also told that she would not remember her NDE until later.

2647. Robert B Probable NDE 3/22/2011. Probable NDE 5050. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Magalie. During surgery, I didn’t see myself outside of my body. I remember this beautiful landscape: a garden, a little stream, a bridge and this amazing and intense light. I had a conversation with a lady who was near a tree. The conversation was through our thoughts and she kept smiling, her lips were not moving. Her message was clear: I had to go back because I still had things to accomplish. I remember resisting and wanting to stay with her because I finally felt at peace. Then, there was this man on the other side of the bridge. He only glanced at me once and I knew I couldn’t stay.
Probable NDE from surgery complications.

2646. Renate NDE 3/21/2011. NDE 5016. From Austria. Original in German, translated to English by Amy. Then I was drawn into a tunnel. It was narrow but didn’t have hard walls. I was pulled through this tunnel. At the other end was an incredible bright warm white light, but it wasn’t blinding. There stood a being with a beautiful face and everything around him was bright light, but the being didn’t have wings. I knew it was an angel and he emanated so much love. The whole area was beautiful, bright, and warm.
NDE from anaphylactic shock.

2645. Roberto Z NDE 3/21/2011. NDE 4991. From Italy. Original in Italian, translated to English by Maurizio B. After fainting, I remember I was looking at the opposite wall. Suddenly, a fissure was opened from which a wonderful white enveloping light came. The crack widened and I felt drawn to it, while I could see myself covered in blood (I was looking from above) lying on the bed with no doctors around me. I saw blood on the floor. I felt I wanted to come across extremely strongly.
NDE from hematoma/stomach bleeding.

2644. Daniel P NDE 3/20/2011. NDE 5102. I was looking down at myself in the hospital I think but not sure – all I know is that as nice as this felt, I had the need to get back to this body and what was going on. It was like a struggle because I had this wonderful sensation knowing that this was a definite good warm place and that I had been forgiven. Yet the desire to get back was overwhelming and I tried to cry out and nothing would come out, not a sound. I kept yelling and saying I wanted to come home and there was nothing, no sound to be heard anywhere, just total peace and tranquility and warmth.
NDE from being shot.

2643. Lynn S NDE 3/20/2011. NDE 5098. I was surrounded by intense brightness that seemed to funnel ahead of me, there was warmth and pleasantness with it… I went on to medical school and now have the privilege to care for many wonderful people, and some, at the time of their death. I know that what happened to me was real. It was not shock, or a dream.
NDE from physician due to ruptured appendicitis.

2642. Chris M NDE 3/20/2011. NDE 5096. I saw both of my grandmothers. They both hugged me and my Dad’s Mom took my hand and said to come on she had someone she wanted me to meet. We walked on this long golden road. It was one sheet of gold so wide you could fit a thousand people across it. I saw a man with long white hair and robe with gold trim playing with children. He arose, marshaled the kids away, and walked towards us. When He reached us, my Grandma said, ‘Honey, this is your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.’ He touched my forehead with two fingers of His left hand and said, ‘It’s not your time. You cannot stay, you things to do for Me.’ I said that I was home and didn’t want to leave. He said, ‘You have to go. When it is your time I will call for you so, be ready.’
NDE due to heart attack and cardiac arrest.

2641. David J Probable NDE 3/20/2011. Probable NDE 5095. With one angel in front and two on the side, we went up high in the clouds. Then, we started moving horizontally going faster than an airplane, and they did not need wings to fly. I thought to myself, ‘Shouldn’t friction be causing me pain from wind pressure?’ The angel in front spoke without using his mouth. He stated ‘There’s no friction here.’ I said mind-to-mind, ‘Why isn’t gravity making me fall?’ He replied ‘There’s no gravity here.’ I remembered learning that temperature in the clouds is extremely cold and I thought, ‘Why aren’t I cold?’ ‘There’s no cold here,’ was the response. I started to think about my job and university and the angel told me ‘THERE’S NO STRESS HERE!’
Probable NDE after hemorrhagic stroke.

2640. Christine T Probable NDE 3/20/2011. Probable NDE 5046. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Simon A. I saw people, without faces, young and old, I don’t know if they were family members, asking me to go back, saying I could not stay with them.
Short Probable NDE.

2639. Janet M NDE 3/14/2011. NDE 5092. From the UK. The alive me was in a different dimension very strong, very powerful, very alive so, I went down to them. Down to my body into my body I not so much as made a choice, as the power of truth, for not knowing how else to put it, was so strong it gave no other choice it simply was. There were no conscious thoughts of I am wanting to stay, or I am wanting to leave or go up or down. Nothing like that just simply allowing the lie of death was unacceptable. It caused instant response the truth, truth had to be seen given done.
NDE due to reaction to illegal drug injection.

2638. Lawrence J Possible NDE 3/14/2011. Possible NDE 5091. While having a heart attack and being in the doctor’s clinic and being attended to, I saw an extremely bright light and experienced a great calming and thought to myself that I was going to die and thought ‘Well, this is going to be a new experience.’
Possible NDE due to heart attack.

2637. Annie Probable NDE 3/14/2011. Probable NDE 5087. From Australia. My body was gone, I was a concentration of those colors/energies. At the time, I felt complete. I had reached the perfection in my being – not as a human being but as a part of a great source of energy. I recovered the ultimate knowledge by becoming that energy again. It was fulfilling and intense. After what felt like an eternity, I progressively felt heavier. I realized I had to go back. At the time, I felt like I had a choice to make. Going back to start or finish something in my human body. I knew through the seven energies/colors that I would have to sacrifice something to go back.
Probable NDE due to blood loss.

2636. Guy VL NDE 3/14/2011. NDE 5084. From Belgium. I was projected to the light and when I came back through the tunnel, I was on the ceiling of the emergency room and I saw a body on the operating room table. I didn’t recognize my body right away. I saw the nurses and the doctor taking off their gloves and I then recognized my body and went back into it. I heard the doctor say, ‘He is back.’
NDE from Belgium due to bike accident.

2635. Randy M NDE 3/13/2011. NDE 5083. The first thing I felt was that I had no body, I felt like I was going to fall but then realized I could not. I realized that I had all my faculties and could still reason. At that moment, I felt the presence of my creator and that my struggle to believe in a God on earth was over. ‘IT’ had complete control over me, which was so soothing it is indescribable. ‘IT’ was emanating an unconditional love of ‘ITSELF’ and for me. My GOD was taking me and it felt so good. I felt no pain anymore nor any of the other miseries felt on earth, including time, there was no time. I was in total comfort.
NDE due to seizure, likely due to alcohol withdrawal.

2634. Joyce Y NDE 3/13/2011. NDE 5082. I remember saying, ‘Oh, Mom.’ What I remember next was being somewhere near the ceiling in the corner of the room at the end by head of the bed. I saw nurses beside the bed, taking my blood pressure. I have no recollection of what else they were doing. I distinctly remember looking down at them working on me.
NDE following delivery from hypotension.

2633. Eric R Possible NDE 3/13/2011. Possible NDE 5054. From Belgium. Original in Dutch, translated to English by Annelies. When I entered that room I saw a large black book on a sort of altar. I went closer and I opened that book. The first page had only one word written on it and that word was ‘languages’. It is evident now that I love to write poems and everyone says I have a real talent. After that we went to the room which said ‘love’. I went in and in the center of the room was a very hazy grey cloud. I went closer and inside the cloud I encountered Joke (my first love) and also Lydia (a girl I have lived together with for three years). I didn’t know what to do there so I decided to go outside again.
Probable NDE from allergic reaction to sleeping pills.

2632. Robert B Dream vs. Intensive Care Unit Psychosis 3/6/2011. Dream/ICU Psychosis 5074. Two shadowy figures with long ton heads slinked in front and back of the urns as if they were in some slow ritual dance. The floors of the hospital were at right angles to each other making it difficult to move from one floor to another. Young hospital interns laid a few pranks on me, one of which involved setting a fire. One nurse was kind to me but got very cross when I said I enacted to leave.
Dream vs. Intensive Care Unit Psychosis. Posted to illustrate the difference between NDEs and experiences of altered stated of consciousness that are not NDEs. Those familiar with NDEs will easily see the difference.

2631. Patricia Z NDE 3/6/2011. NDE 5076. I saw my friends working on me. I heard their voices but only saw the female paramedics face. Then I woke up at the hospital but I was out of my body this time and, as I explain later in this survey, I saw my doctor and I could hear them say his name. All the other doctors had hospital shoes on but my doctor had these real cool tennis shoes on. That’s what I remember most. Then I was in a type of tunnel and that’s where this guy like in shadow form told me it wasn’t my time yet.
NDE due to heart attack. OBE – saw doctor’s distinctive tennis shoes.

2630. Tony M Probable NDE 3/6/2011. Probable NDE 5075. From Canada. Surprisingly, I did not feel the flames of this hellish pit, but was still horrified as I could hear the many screams of the innumerable souls condemned to this seemingly eternal fate. I could see nothing but flames surrounding me. I cried out in horror as the scene switched to a disturbingly hideous and disgusting demon who towered over me, quite similar to a skyscraper next to a human being. I got the impression that this being was made out of pure hate and terror.
Probable NDE due to complication after surgery. Hellish experience.

2629. Lisa H NDE 3/6/2011. NDE 5073. Two Angelic Beings of Light who seemed to be eight feet tall with Mediterranean skin and dark blue piercing eyes, escorted me from the lake into the light. They wore long robes without actual angel wings.
NDE due to boating accident with head injury.

2628. Nubia Possible NDE 3/4/2011. Possible NDE 5031. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Susana. I am not sure how long it took but my pain slowly subsided and when I fell asleep I saw my body lying on the hospital bed. I also saw myself standing by my side. I felt as if I were sinking into a deep well and when I was about to reach the bottom it was no longer a well but a very long and dark tunnel. I felt an inexplicable calm. I felt no pain but I was scared in that darkness. There was no one around, only me. Suddenly I saw a very brilliant white dot, like a light. I ran to reach it and it started to get larger and more brilliant. When I reached the entrance, everything became illuminated and glowing and I was able to leave there.
Possible NDE from childbirth complications.

2627. Maria J NDE 3/4/2011. NDE 5028. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon A. I was no longer afraid, and I began to notice that my body had no weight, it was as if I was stuck to the ceiling of the room. From above I could see the bed, my inert body and the crib with my daughter in it; I felt no pain at all. Then the moment of darkness came, with no sense of time, but I know that I was fine, peaceful, with no cares, feeling warm. I know there was a small and brilliant light far, far away, though I could sense it behind me rather than see it with my eyes. But I knew it was there.
NDE from childbirth complications.

2626. Cynthia H NDE 3/2/2011. NDE 5071. ‘I know you love me and all life, but if you really love all of us continuously without end, then how can You send people to hell throughout eternity?’ He said, ‘Cindy I do love all life without end. Some people chose to go to hell, I have already forgiven them; but they must forgive themselves.’
NDE at age twelve due to a pinealoma (a tumor of the pineal gland, located in the central part of the brain). Exceptional NDE, including interaction with God, who allowed her to ask seven questions which were answered.

2625. Monty D NDE 3/2/2011. NDE 5070. I could see myself. I was surrounded by a total darkness, as if everyone had shut out all the lights in the room, but it felt like it was huge, I had a single light shining down on me from up above, other than that it was all pitch black. I could see myself and I was telling myself, ‘You have to wake up.’ I was just repeating this to myself and looking around at the emptiness. I felt like I wasn’t alone, but I didn’t see anything other than the light above shining down, almost like a spotlight.
NDE due to auto accident. He was considered dead, and covered with a sheet in preparation to go to the morgue.

2624. Gregory C NDE 3/2/2011. NDE 5068. Four days later I was being prepared for an angiogram, a shoulder length blond entered my room and wanted to interview me about my experience in the emergency room. I agreed to the interview and after it was over, she was wiping tears from her eyes. ‘Why are you crying if this event happens all the time?’ ‘Because you are the first that saw things you couldn’t have ever seen. You were straight line with your eyes closed and yet witnessed one of the nurse’s trip over your wife’s foot, and then you were correct about the brunette nurse that took your wife away, and thirdly you saw the bald spot on the top of the Chinese doctor’s head. You could not have seen this unless you had left your body.’ Apparently people see lights and hear what’s going on around them when their heart stops, but I was able to view and hear everything going on while flat on my back with my eyes closed and my heart stopped.
NDE due to heart attack with cardiac arrest. Remarkable verification of OBE observation.

2623. Billy S NDEs 3/2/2011. NDEs 5067/5069. I only recall walking and talking to Jesus. I didn’t seem to have to talk, because it was simply understood between him and me. Also, we were walking on a shimmering road that was translucent, yet not totally. I don’t recall music at all, but I was concentrating on Jesus. We didn’t talk all that long, but it is pretty vivid to this day. I was upset and disappointed that he said I had to go back.
NDE at age eleven due to febrile illness. Also an NDE due to being choked as part of Marine training.

2622. David O NDE 3/2/2011. NDE 5066. I became aware at some point of being in a place of great expansion and light and being complete and very peaceful. I think I was moving toward more light, though, it could be that I was in the full light already. I was not aware of anybody, nor any beings around me. But I do remember looking down on my worried and grieving parents. I also remember being given a choice as to whether I would return to the living and it was in seeing my parents in so much distress and having a vision of my mother’s great anguish in the future, if I did not return, that I chose to return. I remember quite distinctly knowing that it was for them that I returned and not because life on earth was so much fuller and more important than where I was. I felt at home and complete where I was and unlimited. One could say blissful.
NDE due to car accident at age five. Contributor has a doctorate level degree in spite of the severe trauma he experienced at age five. Shared fifty years later.

2621. Cynthia H NDE 3/1/2011. NDE 5063. I instantly flew out of my body and found myself standing outside of myself at my right shoulder. I watched as another nurse grabbed a bottle(s) off a shelf. Next recollection I have was a presence (dark with wings?) enveloping me from behind and telling me ‘NO.’ Then I felt suspended in some sort of colorless void without any senses, but a feeling of peace (or absence of fear). Slowly over the next two days I had a dawning awareness of being enveloped in a warm white light, cocooned in that golden white light, safe.
NDE due to post-surgical complication.

2620. Graeme E NDE 3/1/2011. NDE 5059. From Australia This time when they hooked me back up to the machine, something, I don’t know what, went wrong. I wasn’t getting any air. Every cell in my body started screaming for oxygen, the physical panic was a tidal wave that ripped through me. As the panic wracked me, sight faded, body sense faded, sound faded and then came the calm. I found myself disembodied, floating above a crystal clear lake. It was only small, the water shallow with smoothed stones about the size of a spread hand. Lush green foliage with small shiny leaves overhung the water. I was as conscious and able to think as I am here now writing this. Yet I was suffused with the “peace that passes all understanding”.
NDE due to respiratory failure.

2619. Lisa A NDE 3/1/2011. NDE 5056. I felt a Presence with me – and I knew this Presence was our Creator. Through thought, He presented me with a question – ‘Do you really want to hurt your family like this?’ He did not stop me but wanted me to weigh the price of my decision – to allow myself to cross the line and die, or to choose life. I argued that no one seemed to care whether I lived or died anyway, so what was the point of life.
NDE due to suicide attempt by drowning at age thirteen. Remarkable dialogue with God that saved her life.

2618. Rhonda NDE 3/1/2011. NDE 5055. I felt myself come out of the body at my feet. It was slow. All I remember was telling them I was going and I fell over on the bed. The last thing I saw was the doctor jumping up out of his chair. Next, I was in darkness. Went I realized I was in the darkness, I saw a bright Light come to me. It was as white as snow.
NDE due to loss of consciousness during heart test.

2617. Lorien B Possible NDE 3/1/2011. Possible NDE 5053. I was with God. I understood myself literally to be in his palms. But everything was just light, and pure love. It was the most beautiful feeling I have ever had in my life. God told me that my soul’s purpose was healing, and that I could just do hands on healing. There was some information about just doing it like three times a week. It’s kind of funny, like God was saying, don’t stress about it, your soul needs to do this, but it doesn’t have to be a huge deal. Now, there were no words said, it was just understanding that flowed from God to me.
Possible NDE at time of biopsy of brain abscess.

2616. Jennifer ADC 9/27/2010. ADC 31888. Then, just in a space of a few seconds everything started to click for me. The expression on his face was wrong for our conversation. I had made a joke and he didn’t laugh. He told me to fight; He said I would have to fight for his daughter. That I needed to make sure she would be safe, and loved. Again, I knew something wasn’t right by the look on his face, it looked almost like regret. No anger, no fear, more like disappointment. But, still I kept talking as if we were speaking about him leaving the country. I said ‘Jamie, I will take care of your daughter, I would give my life to see that she is safe and happy.’ I had a son that passed away ten years ago, that is when I knew Jamie had said goodbye, when he said ‘Take care of mine; I got yours’ I knew he meant my son.
Exceptional ADC dream around time of death of her brother, before she knew he had died. Remarkable information from brother about need to fight for the custody of his daughter.

2615. Alvaro A NDE 2/15/2011. NDE 5039. From Mexico. I know that there is a ‘presence’ of somebody at my right side, I didn’t see anybody. I started walking, and watched to my left a kind of long stone wall with barred windows, full of people, they screamed ‘Help me!’ but their mouths don’t open, I listened more. I asked the presence, ‘Who are they?’ and ‘he’ replied, ‘Not yet.’ I continued straight ahead and saw a huge and beautiful garden full of people dressed in white, who were turning to see a sort of a stoned wall, from which there was a blinding light. This wall had some closed doors. One more time I asked: ‘Who are they?’ and the same answer: ‘Not yet.’ We continued walking toward the front of one of the doors and saw light through the cracks in them. We stopped at the door and I asked: ‘What’s behind?’ and the same answer: ‘Not yet.’
NDE from going unconscious from pain.

2614. Gregory W NDE 2/12/2011. NDE 5036. I’m red/green color blind and am visually impaired. Yet, I saw twelve different colors that made up the wall. The colors where not blended but were clearly defined and each was the same height as the next. I also noted that the content or the making of the walls was solid stone and then realized that it was pure stone.
NDE due to insulin reaction. Interesting in that although he has red-green color blindness, he was able to distinguish green.

2613. Charlotte A NDE 2/12/2011. NDE 5049. I had a double mastectomy and tug-flap reconstruction. I lost a great deal of blood and they did not have enough to transfuse. My blood pressure dropped and I flat lined for a bit. I was initially delirious and frightened by darkness and a sense of a void. However, shortly after it all began, I felt encompassed by light (I didn’t see it, I felt it) and an unearthly awareness from someone/thing imparted the knowledge that I was going to be fine. It wasn’t about life or death just that everything was going to be fine. I felt connected to a larger energy than I have known in my lucid life.
NDE due to blood loss following surgery.

2612. Jim T Possible NDE 2/12/2011. Possible NDE 5043. I am floating at the ceiling level directly above my body watching and listening as the dentist pulled the teeth. I remember noticing how hard he had to work to get the teeth to come out. I remember that there was quite a bit of blood. I did not float back to my body but sense that I went to sleep again and woke up in the dentist chair.
Possible NDE due to dental procedure under anesthesia around age eight to twelve.

2611. William L NDE 2/12/2011. NDE 5042. From Canada. I had a feeling of leaving my body in total darkness and suddenly found myself atop a mezzanine metal catwalk in an industrial setting. Everything in this environment was a different shade of red but distinguishable. It was then that I fell from an edge flipping, flipping, flipping, down until I landed into a vast pile of gigantic ‘worm-like’ creatures possessing large claws and teeth. When I first landed on them I was on top of them and then slowly slipped beneath them.
NDE due to accidental overdose of codeine containing pain medication. Frightening content.

2610. Heather I Probable NDE 2/12/2011. Probable NDE 5041. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I felt like I knew everything and recognized this knowing was different from what my thoughts and feelings had been before. I begged to come back, but only because I have two young daughters… I was not judged by God, but rather by myself. I saw the way things ‘really are’ and thought, ‘Why didn’t I ever figure that out.’ It seems so simple. They were things about spirituality, humanity and physics.
Probable NDE with TBI (traumatic brain injury).

2609. Morris M Probable NDE 2/12/2011. Probable NDE 5038. I was up in corner of the room looking down a tunnel, grayish or white in color and cloudy, at my body and the doctor who was prepping me. I could see the blue garments that were over my body and the area above my appendix exposed. I could see him putting iodine on me in a circular motion directly over the appendix area.
OBE early in surgery during prepping skin for surgery.

2608. Denise M NDE 2/12/2011. NDE 5037. I had the sensation that I was floating down a path or tunnel, I wasn’t in body form anymore, and saw a very bright light, like fluorescent. I knew I was dead, but yet I could still think because I thought to myself, ‘So, this is what it’s like to be dead.’ It wasn’t a bad thing. I had an immense feeling of love and warmth – like being engulfed in a secure, warm blanket. It was the most intense feeling I have ever felt. I didn’t see anyone as others have described, but I felt like I had been down this path before and it was familiar and I didn’t want to leave it.
NDE due to anesthetic complication. Interesting ‘anesthetic awareness’ due to insufficient anesthesia followed by NDE, and they were clearly two distinctly different experiences.

2607. Ruben Probable NDE 2/12/2011. Probable NDE 5026. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Susana. Everything was black with colored spheres turning, and what sounded like music (although this I don’t remember too well). I felt vibrations. I am not sure whether the music was there or whether I was imagining it. I felt very well.
Probable NDE from going unconscious.

2606. Louis C NDE 2/6/2011. NDE 5035. When I turned to look the most attractive Indian woman was holding me in her arms under this big tree that did not have any leaves (looked like a massive oak tree). I could see a lot of different Indians walking and singing, drums pounding, then the snow started to fall. When it would fall on my face, she would wipe it off. Then she looked up, so did I. That’s when I saw a bright light. It looked like boiling water then it started to pull me into the light, she stood there with her arms out. When I turned to look at the light I woke up, I was in the room. Later my mom told me that I died three times, they almost lost me.
NDE due to surgical complication at age six. Contributor has partial Native American ancestry.

2605. Victoria D NDE 2/6/2011. NDE 5032. From Australia. I felt like I had split in two with my physical body remaining on the ground. The other element was where my awareness was and it felt as if this was a ball of energy (I could not see this because my awareness was gone from my physical body). The energy ball hovered at the level of my eyes about ten centimeters away from my physical body’s face and watched. I could see the physical body screaming in pain and crying but I felt no connection to that person. After what seemed like an eternity, I travelled as the energy ball up to a place.
NDE due to fifty meter fall.

2604. Jim T Probable NDE 2/6/2011. Probable NDE 5029. Suddenly I was standing there looking at myself. I was totally calm as it was a long familiar experience that I welcomed. I walked around looking at the accident and saw everything spread all over.
Probable NDE from tractor accident and other experiences.

2603. LaVall M NDE 2/6/2011. NDE 5025. I was conscious for maybe one or two minutes, and the next thing I saw was this brilliant white area, and I knew I was there, wherever there was. I cannot even accurately describe the ‘Entities’ that were with me, they were not physical Beings, but rather I had a sense of this intelligence that I felt very comfortable with, a sense that I was at home, a feeling of total acceptance, compassion and total love, almost euphoric. I was not conscious of being in a physical body, but at the time, that thought never crossed my mind. These Entities communicated in a telepathic way, it seemed that their thoughts originated within me, and I was communicating with them in a similar way.
NDE and probable NDE. Probable NDE at age thirteen due to drowning. NDE at age fifty due to diabetic hyperglycemia.

2602. Stephen S NDE 2/6/2011. NDE 5024. The next thing I remember was looking down on myself being attended to by two doctors and two nurses trying to revive me. I was totally detached from my body. All the pain that I had been suffering was gone. There was a feeling of complete comfort, ease, enlightenment, and freedom. I was cognizant energy with no body or physical being. The best word for what I felt was ultimate bliss. As the doctors revived me, I could feel all of the stress, pain and physical burdens returning and I did not want to go back. I felt myself being drawn back into my body.
NDE during medical procedure for illness.

2601. Robert H NDE 1/16/2011. Shared NDE 22441. I was also wearing the same things and standing behind another doctor. I looked over his shoulder and saw me there on the Emergency Room bed. So, I went out the double doors leaving the Emergency Room, and found myself opening the front door of my house. I walked down the hallway to my bedroom. I stood at the foot of my bed where my wife was asleep. I reached down and shook her legs. She jumped up and called my name. The phone rang in the kitchen. She got out of bed and I let her pass by me. I followed her down the hall way as far as the front door. As she continued to go to the kitchen, I said I have to get back now and I love you.
NDE due to motorcycle accident. Remarkable physical contact with wife in OBE state prior to her being aware he had an accident.

2600. Yvette R Possible NDE 1/31/2011. Possible NDE 4999. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Magalie. A very large being of extreme beauty illuminated everything. He exuded Divine Superiority with his presence. He was bare-foot and he stepped away from the group to face me with all his magnificence. He was wearing a long, immaculate white alb. His arms hung alongside his body with his palms opened. My attention was on his long and stringy fingers and his fine, superb hands. He was observing me with a look of infinite goodness and compassion that reached deep inside my being. JESUS CHRIST appeared to me, wrapped me up with his Divine Presence. His radiance embraced my soul. I could feel him with every fiber of my body. The power of his love wrapped itself around me in a surreal silence – I didn’t want to leave him!
Possible NDE from the flu, at the very least an OBE and spiritually transformative event!

2599. Jutta P NDE 1/31/2011. NDE 4971. From Germany. Original in German, translated to English by Aylin. I fled into a dark tunnel to hide which suddenly opened in front of me. I went further because I saw light in the distance. The nearer I came to the light, I felt lighter, calmer, and happier – and somehow snug. The Light got brighter, my body felt slight and an overwhelming feeling of freedom and floating passed through me, it was miraculous and I can’t forget it. It was a garden made of light.
NDE from Dengue Fever.

2597. Shannique S NDE 1/30/2011. NDE 5021. I remember being in what seemed like a tunnel filled by a bright, extremely bright, light. I was flying right by the sun but did not fill the heat. The light given off by the sun is white, not yellow. The light is the color of a white full moon on a clear night. I was going really fast, flying like superman through this tunnel. There was a sense of comfort, and peace. I was not afraid at all. I did not feel fear, or the sense of missing anything.
NDE due to ectopic pregnancy.

2596. Brandy L Possible NDE 1/30/2011. Possible NDE 5020. From Indonesia Suddenly I saw ‘me’ lying on the bed but ‘I’ was above my sleeping body with a thin thread of golden light attached between my body and me. I floated upwards and found myself drawn to a great white light. I floated towards the light; I was welcomed by beings of light, I felt unconditional love, no pain, hardships or worries, I was bounced gently (as a floating balloon) in to the Light, where I heard a voice (male) who told me ‘It’s not yet time, you must go back, your work is not yet done.’
Possible NDE due to sleeping experience during a time she was bleeding from an ectopic pregnancy. Contributor is Muslim.

2595. Harry J NDE 1/30/2011. NDE 5019. At one point in all of this, I was face to face with my guru, Paramahansa Yogananda, who left the body in 1952. He was laughing uproariously. He was surrounded by bolts of incredibly intense light. In fact, I physically felt, more than saw, the light. The vision seemed to last for only a few seconds but it was absolutely overpowering. I had an intuitive sense that I had, through medical technology, prematurely crossed over into a plane of existence that was waiting for me at some time in the future. I think this is what made Master laugh so hard. I was like a naughty child peeking under the Christmas tree.
NDE due to cardiac arrest during procedure evaluating a cardiac arrhythmia. Remarkable encounter with his deceased guru that he had been following for many years. Experience happened just several weeks ago.

2594. Doug E Possible NDE 1/30/2011. Possible NDE 5017. I found myself in the right corner near the ceiling of my room looking down at my body in the bed. The experience didn’t scare me, but felt like this was as normal as getting up in the morning. I then found myself in what I guess you would describe as a tunnel. I say ‘describe’ because it had no walls, floor, or ceiling. Around me was darkness. I felt like I was on an escalator going forward at a somewhat faster pace. Ahead of me was a light that grew larger as I went forward.
Possible NDE from medication (valium) and alcohol.

2593. Tom M NDE 1/30/2011. NDE 5013. From Mexico I began a journey at a great speed through a tunnel of light; all that I have narrated to this point is very vivid in my memory, what seems like a dream is what happened after. I have no clear memory of the events that occurred after the trip in the tunnel of light; in fact, the memory of it seems to me more like a dream than an actual event. In this dream, I arrived somewhere or to be more precise I was intercepted before my arrival. My dead sister and grandmother told me that it was not yet my time and that I must get back.
NDE due to criminal attack.

2592. James S NDE 1/30/2011. NDE 5011. I am not certain, but there may have been hills behind the city. The city was golden, either from its own internal light or from a golden light at sunset. There were beautiful trees and flowers and lovely smells. The city awakened in me a desperate yearning to go there, though I don’t exactly know why. I could somehow see that there were busy people in the houses, which had windows and flat roofs. Suddenly I could cross the divide! I felt simply wonderful, with no pain, and I was full of powerful feelings of peacefulness.
NDE from allergic reaction. Contributor is a university professor of Religious Studies.

2591. Jack D NDE 1/30/2011. NDE 5009. The paramedic turned around and grabbed a defibrillator from the side of him and I watched him hit me once with the paddles. At that moment in time it looked as if I was watching ‘snow’ on a TV screen then the picture came back and I watched him hit me the second time and again, ‘the snow’ except I was now conscious and was pissed off that they had ‘ruined my dream.’
NDE due to cardiac arrest following heroin overdose. Remarkable in that his eight year old son stated that God woke him up at night, told him his father was dying, and told him to get his mother.

2590. Anne T Possible NDE 1/30/2011. Possible NDE 4983. From Belgium. Original in French, translated to English by Susana. While I was under the anesthesia, I saw the same bright void and felt the same sweet warmth. I heard ‘Not yet.’
Two possible NDEs with the common theme of the light.

2589. Carl H Probable NDE 1/30/2011. Probable NDE 4975. From Netherlands. Original in Dutch, translated to English by Annelies. As real as a dream can be but everything that happened can also be called a dream (real as well); I saw myself, I experienced myself in that dream, a wonderful journey in bliss and swathed in love searching for me. My true home, a part of myself that was left behind. I now also know that it is a very special dream which never leaves you and sparkles on and on – and it is not a nightmare. 🙂
Apparently he has the interview on a website somewhere, but from what he says you can get a probable NDE from what he describes.

2588. Renee M NDE 1/30/2011 & 1/13/2011. NDE 6683/22437. I was watching my life unfold right in front of me like a bad dream only it does not feel bad at all. I could see my surroundings but do not feel any physical pain or emotional stress. My emotions were heightened as I accelerated into pure light energy where there is no space or time. I felt more alive than I have ever felt in my life. There are no words to describe this ascended transformation. It is not humanly conceivable for man to remotely understand.
NDE due to motorbike accident.

2587. Stan ADC 12/6/2009. Shared ADC 31880. So last night my best friend and I are driving and I tell her umm I think my mom is next to me hugging me and telling me it’s ok son. My mother is very, very happy. My friend’s jaw dropped and she started crying. I thought she would think I was crazy, and she thought I would think she was crazy but at the exact same time, she was watching my mother die in a hospital bed with the doctors working over her. We both had chills and goose bumps at the same time. It was like a rush of energy hitting us both. I can’t believe it happened myself, so I don’t expect anyone else to believe it. Yet I swear it happened and I have a witness that shared the experience with me!
Shared ADC from mother who died when he was three years old. Shared at same time, with different content, by friend who was with him.

2586. Rick H NDE 3/29/2005. NDE 16002. From Canada I remember my spirit seeing the most overwhelming and wondrous light. While I was being drawn towards this light, this light became larger. Then I found myself in a lit tunnel of tremendous bright light, and other spirits moving past me. I stood still. Midway between the entrance and exit of this tunnel, I actually reviewed my whole life and existence. I contemplated whether I would want to go back to my life on Earth. It was then that I received an incredible amount of knowledge of a great many matters. Knowledge concerning life, death, and the after-life. I can no longer remember what was shared. I was told by God that I was not going to be allowed to retain this incredible amount of knowledge after I would be sent back into my physical body.
NDE from accident. Head trauma kept him from remembering his experience until 20 years later.

2585. Vivienne P Probable NDE 1/22/2011. Probable NDE 5008. I had a general anesthetic for a female sterilization operation. I had the injection and expected to wake up on the ward post-operatively. I am a nurse myself. I woke up and found myself in a darkened room lying on a bed that was made of a fabric with all glittering squares. My immediate thought was ‘Where am I?’ I expected to be on the ward. The information flowed into my head that I had swallowed my tongue in recovery. I felt fantastic, wonderful, happy and full of joy, which was great as I was suffering from depression at the time. Suddenly in the distance is heard a shout of ‘Roll her over!’ The next thing I knew I was back in a bed on the recovery ward.
Probable NDE during post-surgical event.

2584. Erwin V NDE 1/22/2011. NDE 5007. From Belgium. After that I went into a long dark tunnel where I could see a small light at the end (which constantly became closer and bigger and brighter), where arms and hands came out of the wall, trying to grab me and pulling me back. I floated towards a very clear bright but not blinding light, but somehow never reached it totally. During that, I heard the most heavenly music played ever. I felt fear at first, but afterwards I felt so calm and happy, and felt no pain at all. Somehow, I received the message that I had to return, since this life was not fulfilled yet. At that moment I floated back through the dark tunnel, hands pulling me again, back to where I was before.
NDE due to traffic accident at age eleven. From Belgium, shared in English.

2583. Odell H NDE 7/21/2012 & 1/21/2011. NDE 6339/5003. Although I don’t remember the exact words He spoke to me, He in effect said ‘Fear not. Be at peace.’ His voice was moderately loud and very melodious. I have been very hard of hearing since infant-hood, and have always struggled with hearing and speech. I struggled to attend school and pass my classes. My poor hearing affected my association with teachers and classmates, and I barely passed my exams and advancement to the next grade levels. But when Jesus spoke to me, I heard Him very succinctly and clearly. His voice was very melodious and sounded like music to my ears.
NDE due to drowning at age 11 shared experience 60 years later. Long encounter with Jesus. Interesting in that he was severely hearing impaired, but ‘hearing’ during the NDE was supernormal.

2582. Denise H NDE 1/22/2011. NDE 5002. I felt warm and all my pain went away. There was light, I remember, just an illuminated space and nothing else that was visible. I was very aware that I was passing over and I was not afraid. I did not see or think of any of my loved ones. I was completely alone and totally at peace. I remember being surprised that I wasn’t afraid. For a second I thought I would die but shortly afterward realized that I had to go back and needed to fight for my life with the EMT. I remember coming back and feeling pain and discomfort but with confidence that I was being looked after and would be okay.
NDE due to car accident.

2581. Kinyanjui N NDE 1/22/2011. NDE 5001. From Kenya. Once it was about to cover and sweep me away an amazing bright light appeared and I heard a voice, ‘Your life has changed together with your destiny.’ From there I saw my uncle who was dead and an angel, they were extraordinary happy. One of them said to me ‘You stay in that world.’ Then they hugged one another and disappeared. From there I saw myself dancing with the angels in the skies. I could see my dead body behind taken to the morgue, postmortem being done, funeral arrangement, my burial until that evening when I regained my consciousness and discovered that I was not dead.
Non-Western NDE from Kenya due to suicide attempt.

2580. George K NDE 1/22/2011. NDE 4998. I was walking down a path of some sort and was walking with God. He/She was on my left. I was too scared to turn and look at God. I believe I was scared I would turn to salt – not sure – I do know I did not look at God and I do know God was there. I could feel the warmth. I could hear the voice or really feel the voice. It said, ‘You are going to be okay. I have got your back. You are going to heaven one day but not today. In the meantime I want you to tell others about this.’
NDE from stroke/seizure by court judge with encounter with God.

2579. Kathleen M NDE 1/22/2011. NDE 4996. At some point, I remember looking through what seemed to be a big window and I was on the outside. There were lots of people mulling around, some together, some by themselves. No one spoke or looked my way. None was close to me. They were all far away, and they were all like black shadows of people, there were a few trees and grass, but the only colors I saw was a pink that covered all I looked at including the people. These people were neither happy nor sad but I didn’t have any communication with them. When I came to it dawned on me that those were all of my loved ones who had gone before me, I wished that I could see them clearer and talk with them.
NDE due to post-surgical complication.

2578. Gini M Probable NDE 1/22/2011. Probable NDE 4995. I was walking up a steep gravel path in the early morning sunshine. I looked down the side of the path and could see the tops of very tall trees way down below me. I came to an enormous hand carved wooden door that went up as far as I could see. I heard a man’s voice tell me I could go through the door if I wanted to and I would see my father. I told him that I could not go through because my mother would be left alone.
Probable NDE in surgery following an accident. It sounds like father died in the accident, and she apparently first learned this during her NDE. Shared fifty-nine years after experience.

2577. Rick M NDE 1/22/2011. NDE 4994. During all this I went to a place that was in the stars. At first my friend Kuauhtli reached out and took me by the hand. Kuauhtli is a Peyote Road Man, who does ceremonies all over the world. He is also a twenty year Sun Dancer, who has given his flesh for twenty years. Kuauhtli led me inside a big yellow school bus. I looked around like where are we going? All Kuauhtli did was smile. There were no words spoken. When we entered the school bus, the interior had transformed to a Peyote Ceremony, and we were in a tepee. There were many Elders sitting around the Sacred Fire. Some looked to be very old. Some I recognized!
NDE by Native American with traditional beliefs.

2576. Duane NDE 12/17/2010. NDE 22433. I then proceeded to describe what I had seen. I described his exact clothing, and the exact place that he was standing in and I also told him what he had under his arm and what he was doing. I think that it troubled him because his eyes welled up and he has never spoken to me about it since, he did confirm that I was one hundred percent correct on all points. A couple of days later I was informed by a surgeon of what had happened to me during the operation.
NDE due to cardiac arrest during surgery. Remarkable verified OBE observations.

2575. Anna NDE 1/22/2011. NDE 4921. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Susana. There was a very intense light, I guess it was due to the dilation of my pupils. I dreamt of a place filled with people that I did not know, although I felt that I had a connection to them. Without speaking, they communicated information, images and strange theories. Dreams are always difficult to understand. I found myself in an incredible state of peace and relaxation. I wanted to stay there with those people that I did not know, but suddenly I found myself in front of a woman that I found familiar but I have not been able to recognize her. She had an authoritative yet sweet way about her. She was the only person that spoke to me using her mouth and gestures. She told me that I could not be there. I soon started to hear distant screaming. I begged to stay in that place but she did not allow me and showed me a path.
NDE from apparent loss of consciousness in hallway of house.

2574. Glenna A NDE 1/16/2011. NDE 4990. I was suddenly outside my body watching my parents, sister and doctors talk about me and my possible condition and fixes. I was screaming this could not be happening. Then, there was my deceased grandparents at my side. They were perfect and so was everything about the world. I was calmed immediately. They began to lead me through a void towards a light. I was not happy at all to be going the direction they wanted me to go. Closer to the light someone asked me if I wanted to go back.
NDE due to ruptured ectopic pregnancy.

2573. Mary W NDE 1/16/2011. NDE 4989. We came to the end of the woods and directly ahead, there was a beautiful white light with golden rays. I had the impression there was a city or town encased in that light. I was powerfully drawn to that light but stopped at the end of the path. I knew if I continued forward, I would not return to my life. I explained that I had just had a baby and that my nineteen-month-old son needed me. I missed him incredibly much at that time and knew I had to be there for him. I said I wanted to keep walking forward but I can’t. I have to go back to my son and my new baby.
NDE due to allergic reaction from contrast injection for diagnostic procedure. Contributor is a nurse who was a hospice nurse, and teaches a college class on end of life issues.

2572. Tom N NDE 1/16/2011. NDE 4988. I then went into anaphylactic shock; and suffered cardiac arrest and complete respiratory failure. As soon as I flat lined my spirit and soul left my body. There were no bright lights, no tunnels leading anywhere, and there was no one there waiting to meet me. I just went above the operating table and watched the efforts to revive me. There was no fear, no anxiety, and no concern, just watching and waiting. I was however aware of my existence and I knew it was still me. The surgical team withdrew blood from one arm and put new blood into my other arm, while they were administered shots of adrenalin. As soon as they resuscitated me, I returned into my body.
NDE due to anaphylactic allergic reaction due to wasp stings in Vietnam.

2571. Stephanie C NDE 1/16/2011. NDE 4984. The next thing I remember was running through a field by myself in a white gown, picking flowers, smiling, laughing. This was a beautiful place with yellow and white flowers everywhere (I know they weren’t daisies, they looked like oversized posies). There was a waterfall down the path with stone on either side of it. I just remember being so happy, felt a huge amount of love, I didn’t ever want to leave this place.
NDE due to blood loss following c’sarian section delivery.

2570. Riley Probable NDE 12/17/2010. Probable NDE 22432. I was hit by a car. The rest is really unspeakable. I was told not to tell, but I am.
Probable NDE due to being hit by a car. Very little information shared. Experience occurred about a month ago.

2569. Kayleen B NDE 12/12/2010. NDE 22430. It was dark in my bathroom. I couldn’t breathe anymore. I hit the door. When my then husband came in, I was already on the floor. Next thing I know, I’m watching him trying to bring me back to life. He didn’t know what he was doing. He kept hitting my body against the wall and hitting my chest. I felt me ‘laughing’ and ‘smiling’. I then ‘floated’ or ‘flew’ to the bedroom where my daughters sleep. I only felt calm and happy for a bit; then, sad and then happy again. I felt free! Just free! Then, suddenly, felt myself be swooped back into my body and then breathed air again. At first, I was very angry that I was alive again. Then, scared that I was actually dead. Realized in a moment, that I had 2 babies to raise, and got scared again.
NDE due to unconsciousness from illness.

2568. CL NDE 11/22/2010. NDE 22425. During major surgery on my kidney, the medical staff was unable to control bleeding, which caused my heart to stop. Surgery was stopped in the attempt to resuscitate me. All I can remember is thinking that I was dreaming. At first, I was afraid that I had woken up during surgery and just couldn’t move but I didn’t feel any pain. Then, I realized that I was in one of the corners of the operating room, floating there and watching the staff working. I don’t know how long that lasted but I eventually woke up in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for Heart Patients, drifting in and out of consciousness. I found out a couple of days later what had happened.
NDE due to bleeding and cardiac arrest during surgery.

2567. Jean C NDE 1/12/2011. NDE 4982. At this time, the stairwell began to fill with what seemed like sunshine to me, but it got really bright. A voice told me I was all right and that she was with me. I do not know who this was, but I felt extremely peaceful. I began to shield my eyes. Suddenly, I felt myself tugged back into my body. My body felt like a glove that was too tight.
NDE at age seven due to complication of dental extraction.

2566. Christina T NDE 1/12/2011. NDE 4980. Then, all of a sudden when I was in the total darkness, a petal of a White Rose came down from the upper right and wrapped around me. It was warm, loving and so very light. Then a petal came down from the left and surrounded me in an even lighter experience. This continued on and on until I thought I was going to explode in the lightness of being enveloped in the LIGHT of the petals of a White Rose, with each petal surrounding me, until it became brighter and brighter and lighter and lighter, to the point of an all-encompassing explosion into the Light.
Remarkable and transformative OBE/STE and brief NDE in hospital.

2565. Ruth B Probable FDE 1/12/2011. Probable FDE 4974. From France. Suddenly I felt afraid too, but in the same split second it was as if I zoomed out (out of myself and out into space). First, I saw the immense ocean, then countries alongside, then earth and the galaxy, then the universe, as I was pulled into ‘heaven’. As my perspective widened and widened it was accompanied by insights – suddenly I knew how water, climates, the physics worked together, then how people fitted in, how earth was ruled, what was important and what not, then how it all fitted into the universe. I understood ‘the system’ through and through, how it was meant to be.
Probable fear-death experience at age ten with remarkable insights.

2564. Lisa L Possible NDE 1/12/2011. Shared Possible NDE 4973. A few feet beyond where I was standing, the tunnel ended and there was a large area of just pure, white light. I could see beings dressed in white flying or moving about within the light. With me inside of the tunnel was my mother. We were talking for a time, though I have never been able to recall what we were talking about. It seems as though we were together for a while, though again, I’m not sure how long it was.
Remarkable encounter in tunnel with her mother who was in a coma at the time. Shared OBE, possible NDE during surgery.

2563. Lynn NDE 1/12/2011. NDE 4972. Then I felt joy and acceptance form many thousands of people. I thought, ‘No, I don’t deserve to go to this wonderful loving place.’ The people looking at me said wordlessly, ‘We know you. We are so happy to have you back with us.’ I turned and checked in with my body, I saw the code team working. Chest tubes were inserted. I knew each person there. I knew their name, what they were thinking – it was as if I could be everywhere at once. Focusing my attention again on the new world I was entering many were excited to show me the answers about life I had asked so many times. As I saw them, I felt tremendous peace and joy. Everything was as it should be. Suddenly a voice said, ‘Stop! It is not her time.’
NDE due to complication following accident. Interesting comparison of OBE at accident scene, and OBE with NDE a few days later.

2562. Nigel R NDE 4/19/2002. Secondhand NDE 16000. From South Africa. On arrival, he bought the cokes, but asked the shop assistant to call Molly to the counter. He wanted to thank Molly for helping save his life. While we waited, Nigel turned to me and said something quite simple yet profound: He said he knew he was dead. He experienced a tremendous whooshing sound, followed by the most beautiful music he had ever heard in his life. Then he woke up in the hospital.
Second-hand NDE that happened as children in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). What is remarkable about this narrative is the effect his friend’s NDE had on him.

2561. Clautreaux Possible NDE 1/9/2011. Possible NDE 4954. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Simon. Then the pains began to ease, the odors became perfumed, and the colors went progressively from brown to a clear blue and I was very happy to be going where I was going. Suddenly a shadow started walking on my right side. That lasted some time, and I was more and more happy, without pain anywhere. The shadow at my side spoke to me, asking, ‘Are you sure you want to go on?’ I went on a few paces, and then I turned around, without replying, and began to go back where I had come from.
Possible NDE from heart attack after nine days of coma.

2560. Sally M Probable NDE 1/1/2011. Probable NDE 4970. I just rested; a peace I never felt before came over me. I saw a bright light through the water and didn’t want to get up. It seemed like a long time. A voice said, ‘You have to get up before another wave comes.’ I got up and walked out without any wave hitting me. I made a decision to live and realized I was not finished here. It was an overcast day without sun.
Probable NDE due to drowning.

2559. Ted M NDE 1/1/2011. NDE 4969. When I entered a side door, a stair case presented itself and I immediately ascended without thought. On the third step, I hesitated looking back down to see the multitude of souls mired in what seemed to be a river down below. I turned and resumed the ascent to the fifth step where I became centered within enlightenment, a singularity, my universe became clear, I could see beyond time and there before me passed my life, the lives of my parents, the lives of my grandparents, my accomplishments, failures, wants, needs and desires both past and future. It was a very beautiful and loving existence with all thought being as one. As I reviewed the past and future, it became clear that all was good, orderly and correctly defined, I was at peace within the cosmos.
NDE due to being shot in head with later cardiac arrest.

2558. Louis S NDE 1/1/2011. NDE 4968. About this time, both of my deceased grandmothers appeared from nowhere. One stood there just looking at me and the other was telling me to go back, that I couldn’t come in yet. I looked beyond her into the black darkness and felt the presence of my deceased grandfather, my deceased great-grandmother and uncles – family members I had never met. I felt them and saw their spirits gathering in one area. My grandmother was adamant that I didn’t take another step. I wanted to continue and she saw this. At this time, she yelled out to me, ‘STOP! Cameron (my daughter) is going to need you!’ (I was divorced and my daughter lived with my ex at the time.)
NDE due to truck accident.

2557. Lonny F NDE 1/1/2011. NDE 4967. When I asked if I was dead he said very simply ‘Yes, you are.’ We never opened our mouths to communicate; everything was by thought alone. So many words were exchanged so fast that it would be impossible for me to account for them all. He made me feel very safe and welcome. He comforted me and let me know that he was there to assist. He asked me if I wanted to still live, and very quickly, without even having to think, I said, ‘Yes I do.’ He smiled as if he had expected me to say that. I don’t know why, but I felt as if we had always known each other, and that it was funny to him that he already knew my answer. I asked him if he could help me get back. I was made to know and understand that he couldn’t interfere, but what he could do was to show me what I already knew. Just then, I was pulled away from that bright beach and pulled upward, or inward – I really don’t know.
NDE at age 15 due to drowning as a result of large waves following an earthquake. Remarkable knowledge gained during life review helped save his life.

2556. Edna NDE 1/1/2011. NDE 4965. From the UK. As I was floating through this tube, I could hear snippets of conversations from my past. On exiting the tube, I was surrounded by the most wonderful music – similar to pan-pipes. This music was everywhere and the feeling was so peaceful and pain-free. I asked, ‘Where am I?’ and was told ‘The Halls of Music.’ There seemed to be a lot of people, and they were all exuding so much love. I went outside to the most wonderful blue sky and green grass. There was a bridge. I asked to cross it, but I could not – there was some kind of invisible barrier. Someone I felt I knew appeared on the other side of the bridge, (I still do not know for certain who it was, but I think it was my grandfather) and he said, ‘It is not time yet, you still have work to do.’
NDE due to complications of childbirth.

2555. Jean K NDE 1/1/2011. NDE 4964. As I looked out at this most beautiful sight of stars, planets, and the great radiant and loving Light, I saw tiny trails of blue, pink and green lights traveling across the expanse of darkness toward the Great Light. I wondered what they were, and instantly I had the information that they were prayers from people seeking the Light. They were very beautiful, and once they reached the Light, they were absorbed into it. Then larger trails of white light traveled from the Great Light outward. I knew that these were answers to prayers. I just wanted to watch the traveling of the lights, be warmed by the Light and enjoy the beautiful view. The Light turned a magnificent blue and rolled toward me like an ocean wave. It was not really close to me, but nevertheless, I could see the image of Jesus within the blue wave. Love poured out upon me, like warm water. Jesus looked just like he did on the poster in my Sunday School class.
Exceptional NDE due to respiratory arrest from bronchitis.

2554. Beth L FDE 1/1/2011. FDE 4963. We had those old metal ice cube trays that make the giant cubes with the sharp edges. I made a glass of ice water and somehow one of those giant cubes went straight into my throat and blocked me from breathing. As I was choking and panicking, my life seemed to pass before my eyes going backwards. It was me watching me, like in a movie and one ‘still’ from that movie still stands out in my head, just a picture of myself at a very young age.
Fear-death experience due to choking at age seventeen.

2553. James W NDE 1/1/2011. NDE 4962. As I looked down at the house, a house where there was a very deep Christian influence, I first noticed a great many people surrounding it. These people, I did not recognize, although I could make out their faces. Beyond those I could see well, stretched a multitude of people into the horizon. That horizon joined the dimension of the one my companion and I were in. The earthly horizon joined the heavenly horizon. Those up close, I sensed were alive at the time, while those in the distance, I sensed as departed. The people up close were all praying for me. I believe they were kneeling. Their prayers appeared as smoke rising into the heavens. They were all facing towards me, more or less, all over the yard.
NDE due to clinical death while under general anesthesia.

Near Death Experience Research Foundation-Archives 2011 part 1

2922. Jill D NDE 12/31/2011. NDE 6151. When I stepped into the liquid, all that was ‘Jill’ disappeared. ‘I’ no longer existed and yet ‘I’ was still there. I was the essence of life, I guess. I don’t know what else to call it. I was conscious of my surroundings. I had joined with all the other consciousness in the pool and had become one with it. I ‘knew’ all other life in the pool; I was ‘one’ with everything. I was home. My personal identity disappeared but my essence continued to exist. This wasn’t frightening at all, however. Instead, it felt like I was truly myself, like when I get out of a shower, after having cleaned myself off.
NDE due to motorcycle accident.

2921. Karen J NDE 12/31/2011. NDE 6150. A million thoughts at once and each clearly experienced. I thought about how strange it was that the cold didn’t bother me. I was wowed by how strong the water was (until I couldn’t feel it anymore). I felt the absolute peace of everything feeling perfect. I thought about everything that had ever happened in my life, but not distinct thoughts, just a sense that I was aware of everything that has happened. I thought many different things at once and was able to instantly comprehend. My consciousness was not constrained by anything physical, just infinite thought and wisdom with no time.
NDE due to near drowning at age 10.

2920. Debbie B NDE 12/31/2011. NDE 6149. From the UK I recall my blood pressure being taken and that they were concerned because it had dropped considerably. I then lost consciousness and was out for a couple of hours. During that time I had a beautiful vivid ‘dream’ that I was in a beautiful colorful flower garden with blue sky and sunshine standing on a gravel path and in front of me was my mother looking about 20 years younger as clear as day! All she said to me was, ‘I’m okay now and you’re going to be fine.’ The fact that I was unaware that my mum had died at that exact time until 2 days afterwards proves that it was real to me.
NDE due to post-operative infectious complication. Met mother who had died at the same time of her experience before she was aware that her mother had died.

2919. Bella K NDE 12/31/2011. NDE 6148. All I can remember is music that was kind of in the back ground that was almost like notes within notes. The song that reminds me of it the most is ‘The Carol of the Bells.’ I remember feeling very peaceful. I was sitting at a very plain wooden table and there was white all around the man, who was Jesus, who sat next to me. I remember feeling a sense of total love. There was no judgment, only pure love and I felt so good in his presence. I remember we were talking without using words. I would look into his eyes and find all the answers I was searching for.
NDE due to carbon monoxide poisoning.

2918. Kelly L NDE 12/31/2011. NDE 6147. I went to a clinic that was paying for ‘healthy’ (non-smoking, etc.) blood to give to cancer patients. The nurse could not find my vein after digging for what seemed like a very long time. Apparently I went into shock and convulsed instead of passing out. They kept me standing up rather than putting me in a prone position. I looked down from what seemed like a height of possibly 20 or so feet and saw the nurses holding me upright. I ‘came back’ shaking my head saying, ‘No’.
NDE due to passing out during blood donation.

2917. Maria S Possible NDE 12/31/2011. Possible NDE 6145. I start hearing an ‘electrical’ buzzing sound and begin to feel heavy as lead. At this point, I know there is no turning back, because this sound along with feeling heavy as lead has always preceded previous out of body experiences. I think to myself, ‘Oh no here you go again, you shouldn’t be doing this.’ Then, without even any sensation of coming out of my body, I am floating in a grey mist. This grey mist is a neutral zone as much as I could tell. My form is now spherical with a small sphere on top, which is my head. This sphere (that I am) is made of soft greyish blue light. I’m just floating there in a grey mist, thinking ‘now what?’, and ‘will I be able to get back?’
Possible NDE from sleep apnea.

2916. Camryn L NDE 12/30/2011. NDE 6136. I knew that Einstein and Mohammed and Handy and Mozart and all the great artists and scientists had tapped into this knowledge, either in their sleep or as a conduit from God or the Great Spirit or the Universal Energy. I was bathed in bliss and harmony. I felt more love than I could even imagine, and everything emanated positive energy and affection. Every single positive word in the dictionary could not capture the feeling of eternal bliss that I felt.
Exceptional NDE due to blood loss with remarkably transcendent experiences.

2915. Paul S NDE 12/30/2011. NDE 6137. From Canada My next realization was the strangest one yet! All through this entire process, I became aware of being conscious outside of what I consider the boundaries of the physical body. My eye vision; if we can call it that, out of the sensation of seeing, I was probably about 12 feet away at a 45 degree angle from where my body was lying on the floor. I could clearly see my wife Jennifer and her sister Sharon and my sister-in-law Joanne who was also present at that time. I remember too that I (my essence of conscious self) was floating above and away, from where my physical body was laying on the living room floor. Yet I clearly remember that my consciousness which was not within the boundaries of my physical body. It was a lucid sensation of being able to see at 360° all around from wherever situated while my consciousness was situated next to the ceiling – I recall feeling the presence of a loving spiritual-entity.
NDE due to pulmonary embolus.

2914. Rhonda C NDE 12/30/2011. NDE 6138. I was in a tunnel that was not dark, but not bright and it was comforting. I had the most incredible emotions. They seemed to center in the solar plexus. There was the most incredible mixture of peace, joy, love, and acceptance; so strong, I still cry thinking about it. I seemed to be able to talk in my head without words. I asked if I was done. I seemed to just know that life on this plane at this time was only a part of my existence. God answered back. ‘It is your choice. You may come with me, or go back.’ I truly felt this was my choice and we were having this dialogue in my head. I could hear his voice as clear as anyone who speaks to me aloud. I told him I felt I needed to go back, that I didn’t feel I had accomplished what I had set out to do. I felt emotions of kind acceptance, not judgment.
NDE due to surgical complications and respiratory arrest after surgery.

2913. Kirat A NDE 12/30/2011. NDE 6139. From India The next thing I can remember, I was observing the operation from the ceiling. I had a comfortable ‘rial view of the surgery. I could see my dad who was inside the operating theater. I could see the surgeon and the nurse standing to the left of me. Suddenly, I went up higher and felt extreme happiness and peace, which I had never ever experienced. It was divine. I suddenly started falling back in a deep dark tunnel. As I fell in the tunnel, a few past events of my life were visible to me and they went past me in a fraction of a second.
NDE due to complication during surgery.

2912. Michael P NDE 12/30/2011. NDE 6140. I saw 3 figures silhouetted in blue light. No faces, only human shapes. The one in the middle said ‘It’s not your time yet.’ Then I saw myself being extracted from my car. Then I woke up in a helicopter being flown to the hospital.

After going in the lake, I found myself surrounded by vague images that I couldn’t make out but they were in front of a bright light that was coming from all directions. There was a feeling of great love coming from all of them with an overwhelming feeling of love surrounding and behind them. The love I felt seemed to be the love of a grandmother, coming from each of them. After experiencing this feeling of love for a while, I was told it wasn’t my time and I needed to go back but they would see me again in the future.
NDE due to drowning. Shared 51 years later.

2910. Keith J NDE & Pat’s Second Person NDE 12/30/2011. NDE 6142. Keith ‘negotiated’ with God, stating, ‘I have found love for the first time’, and it was this statement that caused, Keith thought, The Divine to reconsider and send Keith back to his earthly existence. It was love, Keith’s love for me, and our bond together which was unshakeable. Our bond was not ‘of this world’ and remains that way for me, even after I lost Keith. The security guard came over and said, ‘Are you Kim?’ I replied, ‘Yes.’ She sighed and said, ‘I have a story for you. Will you listen?’ Keith and I became quiet and she sat down in the chair adjacent to me. ‘Pat’ explained that she had been in a medical coma two years prior as a result of a ‘scarlet fever’ type of illness. She had been discovered unconscious by a neighbor and brought to the hospital. While in this coma, ‘in this Other Place’, she was shown my face only, given my name as ‘Kim’ and told to ‘find Kim.’ And, so we had found each other but we didn’t have the answers because we didn’t have the questions.
Wife (Kim) of Keith tells of his NDE due to heart attack. Later Kim met a security guard (Pat) in Atlantic City who told Kim that she had an NDE and was told to ‘find Kim’ and shown Kim’s face. If Pat reads this, please email NDERF.

2909. Paula Y Probable NDE 12/30/2011. Probable NDE 6143. I was in a park and my deceased cat Amigo came running towards me and jumped into my arms. I recognized him instantly. I held him and hugged him. I was so happy to see him. I was smiling and extremely happy. He was happy to see me as well. He was rubbing his cheek against my face over and over. I kept squeezing him and feeling his fur. I was soooo happy to see him again. Then he jumped out of my arms and walked over to a park bench. There were people around, but no one stood out. I watched Amigo jump on to the park bench and curl up next to an old man. I realize the old man is my deceased grandfather.
Probable NDE during open heart surgery.

2908. Glenn F NDE 12/30/2011. NDE 6144. From Wales, UK. Out of the darkness behind me, I heard my father call to me. He passed away 10 years ago at the age of 76. I was looking toward where I heard his voice and then all of a sudden there was light everywhere. And there he was!! Smiling, and looking like I remember him when I was young. Now he was a man in his thirties and I was old. Seeing him in this light and talking to him was so comforting. I never in my life felt so content. I had a feeling of total peace like nothing I’ve ever experienced.
NDE due to cardiac arrest under anesthesia.

2907. Glenda G Possible NDE 8/20/2011. Possible NDE 22601. But there were three steps that led up to a platform of sorts, and there was a door across from the steps. I instinctively knew that every person and every animal I have ever loved in my life was alive and well beyond that door. They were all waiting for me. Now I understood everything. This was my mansion that Jesus speaks about in John 14: 1-3, which also happens to be my favorite verse in the Gospel. It assured me that there would be a place for me in heaven. I was here. This place was mine. It was being built and personalized just for me. I can’t even describe the overwhelming joy I felt, or the atmosphere of love and acceptance I was surrounded by. I wanted to stay; and they were telling me that I could. I was loved. I was a part of this amazing place.
OBE vs. NDE. Was physically compromised several days after surgery. Quite NDE-like experience.

2906. Ahmed B Possible NDE 9/30/2012. Possible NDE 16059. From Iran I woke up and saw that my neck and my head were raising of my body. Slowly I felt that I was going out of my body. The separation started from my feet. New feet came out of body, then other parts of my body followed the new feet. My face left the old body with shining light and was golden-colored. It sounded like bubbles in a soft drink. I looked at the old body and I said to myself, ‘it belongs to another man, I hated it.’ Suddenly I floated fast, then faster and faster. I went through a black tunnel. My sense of hearing became so strong I heard my neighbors talking in their house. I flew around the room very fast, weightless, with twenty eyes. Time was different.
My heart goes out Ahmed for going through the dark night of the soul.

2905. Lars N NDE 12/16/2011. NDE 5387. From Germany. Original in German, translated by Anja. I don’t know what or how it happened. Suddenly I was above the pool at the height of the 10 meter (30 feet) dive board, although I was far away from the board, in mid-air. In this moment, I felt a single feeling best described as a feeling of complete contentment and joy. The best feeling I have experienced in my entire life. I looked around and saw the leaves swaying in the wind, birds were flying through the air, and I saw the sky above and the many people below.

2903. Kaleen NDE 12/17/2011. NDE 6131. I was in an vast open field, where there were people all around. I couldn’t see them but sensed their presence in my periphery. The sky was the most vivid blue I had ever seen and the grass was the most amazing color of green and appeared to be alive. It was swaying, although there was no breeze. The clouds in the sky were the softest, puffiest white down. The colors were almost indescribable. I felt the strongest sense of love, as if someone had taken a warm blanket and swaddled me in love.
NDE due to passing out after donating blood.

2902. Ellie P NDE 12/17/2011. NDE 6130. From Wales, UK. I was lying there watching all of this & wondering, ‘why isn’t anyone coming to get me?’ when I saw my mother walk forward to the side of the bed. When she was alongside me, I could see from the corner of my eye that she had tears streaming down her face. I thought ‘why is she crying?’ but as I turned my head my brother came forward & dragged her back out of my sight. That was when I realized that I wasn’t going with them to the Spirit World i.e. I wasn’t going to die.
NDE with some atypical features.

2901. Cami R NDE 12/17/2011. NDE 6132. From this state, I felt honored to keep the body breathing and endure this particular blazing burden. It wasn’t suffering; it was fuel. I was filled with the sheer joy and gratitude of experiencing this particular delicious incarnation, this body and personality. This joy of Self has returned over and over through the years, at times gracing me with a sense of being blessed at every pleasure and pain of being in the flesh.
NDE, but predominant experience happened a few days later during meditation-like state. Very enthusiastic about her experiences and really did some writing so just know that this is a longer experience than most.

2900. Nicole M Probable NDE 12/13/2011. Probable NDE 5384. From France. Original in French. Translated to English by Magalie. Suddenly, I felt myself depart and in a dark tunnel, lit with bluish hues. At the end of it, I could see a very attractive light. I felt no more pain, had no physical body and felt no mental anguish. The only thing I felt was unconditional love and my father’s presence. He died 28 years ago! He took my left hand and welcomed me. I did not perceive myself as being dead. I felt only happiness, no more pain and on top of that, I was with my father. I wanted to go further and through the door but my father sent me back to terrestrial life without giving me any time to argue. He said goodbye, which seemed impossible.
Probable NDE from taking medicine for rheumatoid arthritis.

2899. Lieselotte S NDE 12/11/2011. NDE 6126. From Canada. I was in the room, but not in the bed. I saw an intense white light and heard a pleasant classical music associated with the light, surrounded by an agreeable atmosphere. It was a pleasant experience.

NDE during coma after surgery

2898. Sandy D NDE 12/11/2011. NDE 6125. I found myself in a field in compete darkness. Heartbroken I felt my soul shatter like glass and the shards scattered across the grass. I was in a clearing surrounded by tall grass. Big flat rocks were in the clearing; they were boulders, but mostly they were flush with the ground. I lie down and felt the sharp rocks (and when I woke, there were scratches and bruises). I asked God to take me. I was in such emotional pain. I heard rustling through the grass and knew it was not God coming for me, something else was. I closed my eyes in fear and when I opened them a huge deer was standing over me. I was so close I reached up and the deer brought its nose to my hand.
NDE due to drug overdose.

2897. Paige M NDE 12/11/2011. NDE 6124. The first thing I remember is floating above myself and looking down and seeing my body face down in a snow bank under a tree. I had been wearing a wool pea coat and a thick Carhartt jacket over it, as well as snowmobiling pants and thick winter boots but I felt free as I floated looking down. I had no worries or any thoughts. I heard a sudden scream and saw my best friends rush to my limp body and roll me over. Suddenly I was aware that I was not breathing and began to panic. I remember seeing a blinding bright light but I turned away because I was trying to breathe. Everything was so bright and vivid I remember it even now.
NDE due to snowmobile accident.

2896. Karen NDE 12/11/2011. NDE 6120. I was somewhere I knew and it was where I belonged. I was VERY HAPPY. I then saw someone walking toward me from the left. I recognized the male figure and we both laughed when we first looked at each other. I had the sensation that he was as happy to see me, as I was to see him. We talked and from what I can remember discussed that this was where I was from and that I was home. I cannot describe the feeling. Joy, elation, and happiness. No words that I know can describe it. Everything made perfect sense!
NDE due to illness with sepsis. Contributor is a nurse.

2895. Shannon T NDE 12/11/2011. NDE 6119. From Canada. I was in total bliss and awe that I was still alive but in another place! I all of a sudden just knew what I knew all along, that life does go on but in another time and place! I know that I was on the verge of reaching a light, but that I had to travel through the darkness of my own soul and that it wouldn’t be long in the dark and to just enjoy my time there until I end up in the next place or until I catch another life.
NDE due to surgical contribution. Contributor is Muslim.

2894. Pedro J NDE 12/8/2011. NDE 5383. From Chile. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Petrov. After traversing in that dark abyss, I found myself flying as if I were a bird, an Eagle.

2893. Ray B NDE 9/10/2012. NDE 16058. Transcribed by Elaine. Then Jesus came towards him with pure love and Ray realized that religion is real! Together, he and Jesus moved through the heavens, like clouds. They stopped in front of Mary and light came from her hands and he told her how much he loved her. They started moving through the heavens again, stopped, and God appeared in front of him. He felt that God was looking through him and knew everything he was thinking. Ray had a life review while standing in front of God. Ray was looking down and seeing different parts of his life and God was showing him how he forgave him for all the bad things he had done in his life. During the life review, he also saw his own future.
NDE from drug overdose.

2892. John M NDE 8/18/2011. NDE 16057. As we approached an intersection I had the feeling that I was fading away (that’s the best I can describe it). I knew then that there was something very wrong. I arrived at the intersection just when the light turned red and heard a voice say that I was dying. I put the car into park, shut off the engine and collapsed in my wife’s arms. The voice again said ‘you are dying, this is how it feels.’ It wasn’t a threatening voice, it was kind of calming in a way. I felt no pain during the whole process.
NDE from cardiac arrest.

2891. Ana R NDE 11/27/2011. NDE 6118. I felt as if I was being pulled down and remember hearing screeching like nails being scratched on a chalkboard. My teeth clenched and the fear I felt was overwhelming. In my mind, this was permanent and it was hell. The next thing I remember is looking up and seeing a cross with great light around it. I never saw any beings or anything, but I heard a voice say ‘I am not finished with her yet’, talking about me as if I wasn’t there.
Frightening NDE due to severe infection following delivery.

2890. Brent M NDE 11/27/2011. NDE 6117. I chose not to push my luck and opted for the here and now. When my decision was made I resumed life back in my body. An ambulance arrived. I rose from the pavement and walked to the gurney. Amazed eyes followed trip with disbelief. I believe one was a priest who had administered last rites.

2889. Helena K Probable NDE 11/27/2011. Probable NDE 6116. I was in the corner by the ceiling and watching my body lying on the bed and my boyfriend was sitting next to me. I felt profound joy and peace. I flew closer to my body and thought that I looked very pretty and young.

It seemed like it lasted so long could see shadows far away in the brightness.
Probable NDE at age 17 due to being hit by a cement truck while on a bicycle. Shared within 1-2 days after experience occurred.

2887. Alex FDE 11/27/2011. FDE 6114. In the questionnaire, you asked if I sensed a boundary or a point of no return. Well, the point was where the knife was touching my throat. And if the guy decided to cut, my GI Joe sized soul was just going to jump out the hole. Does that make sense? Sounds crazy now, doesn’t it. It was like I wanted to just get away from there so bad that getting away from the horror of the murder was the last, um, choice. The last free choice I would make.
Fear-death experience at time he was being robbed at knifepoint.

2886. Stephen M NDE 11/27/2011. NDE 6113. From the U.K. I remember seeing a doctor run up to me with what I can only describe as a syringe in his raised hand, and just as my eyes closed, he brought that syringe down and into my chest. Then it was darkness again. I have no idea of time scale here, but I remember opening my eyes again, and had a really strange feeling that I wasn’t laid in the usual horizontal position, but more of a vertical one. I felt ‘upside down’, in the sense that my feet were up on the ceiling, and my head towards the floor. As I slowly turned my head right, then left, I was actually looking at the top of the nurses heads as they walked around. I called out in a quiet and calm tone, yet I don’t remember my lips moving. I said these exact words: ‘What’s happening? Where am I? Everything’s changed.’ I saw no one look at me, yet I heard a female voice reply, ‘It’s alright. Everything’s going to be alright.’

2885. Phyllis Probable NDE 11/27/2011. Probable NDE 6111. We both were looking down and I saw doctors and nurses around a bed and asked the girl next to me who was on the bed. She said it was me and that she had to watch. Being so young, I couldn’t grasp how I was sitting up on this ledge and in the bed below at the same time. I wasn’t scared; in fact, when I looked behind me I saw a playground with lots of kids playing. The flowers and grass colors were so vivid and pretty.
Probable NDE at age 3 during surgery.

2884. Lysa NDE 11/27/2011. NDE 6110. From the United Kingdom I floated up to the ceiling. I could see through the wall to another room and I recognized young women from my ward sleeping in their beds. Then I was in a viewing gallery with a very tall woman who held my hand. She was strong, serious and in charge of me. We watched my dad come into the theatre to see me as the doctors thought I was going to die. I didn’t feel sorry for my dad or particularly want to go back. The woman holding my hand told me I had to get into my body. I said I was scared that I didn’t know how to do it. She said ‘Go down now.’
NDE due to post-surgical bleeding at age 6.

2883. Kyle M NDE 11/19/2011. NDE 6107. I started traveling fast towards something, and, real or not, I think it was hell. I saw a dark, rugged, rocky landscape with tall, jagged rocks sticking up all over. In the distance, there was a giant orange glow with dark streaks going up. I found myself looking into a sort of giant cave entry with enough room for everybody. When I came to, I was sweating profusely. I was terrified and didn’t know where I was. Nothing like this had ever happened to me before.
Hellish NDE due to faint.

2882. Benny M Probable NDE 11/19/2011. Probable NDE. 6105. I was ten. I was at the beach. A huge wave hit me and pulled me under the water. It was calm, and I understand what eternity fells like. There were no walls or boundaries. The black space I was in was a way to travel to the Light.
Probable NDE due to drowning at age 10.

2881. Stephen I Experiences 8/6/2011. DBV, Other 22586. I came into work the next morning and noticed he wasn’t in his bed. I was informed that he was in the ICU (intensive care unit). They had had a heart attack. They coded him three times (coded is when the heart stops and they have to shock them to bring them back). His family didn’t want to let him go so they would not sign a ‘do not resuscitate’ order. They made three attempts to bring him back and he and I did three ‘pulls’ in our tug of war in my dream! He survived! One day, a couple of weeks before she passed, she was chatting away with this unseen child. I asked her to ask him what his name was. She turned her head away from me and said in the direction of the little boy, ‘What’s your name?’ I asked her if he answered her and she said, He said his name is Lolo. I broke out in a sweat.

2880. John R NDE 11/17/2011. NDE 6102. Immediately upon beginning to roll I thought, ‘oh, now I am going to watch myself die. I knew I could not possibly survive the fall that was about to take place. I was very calm, firmly gripping the wheel as the truck rolled. The moment I made that statement, I felt the presence of something very new and unique in my experience. It was as if somebody had come up behind me and wrapped a protective cloak around me (or a pair of angelic wings), completely enveloping me in a loving embrace. I felt no fear throughout the experience, but rather, the most opposite occurred. I was awash in LOVE.
NDE due to truck accident and several other experiences described.

2879. Brad M Probable NDE 11/17/2011. Probable NDE 6101. Suddenly a large angel appeared. He spoke to my mind, and I could understand, just like an adult. He asked me if I wanted to leave or stay. I felt very powerful in his presence, like nothing was going to harm me, and anything I said was alright. I no longer feared or felt death. His words were understood fully and completely without any words. I saw myself before I was sent here. I remembered a previous conversation while picking out my parents.
Probable NDE at age three due to illness.

2878. Jack S Probable NDE 11/17/2011. Probable NDE 6060. I walked into my living room and collapsed against the dining room wall. While falling, I hit my head on the kitchen counter and then again on the wall. This knocked me out, and my body, from my shoulder to my elbow, was stuck, jammed against the wall, until I came to. At that point, I pushed and slid myself down to the floor, where I lay flat on my back. The room was pitch black. The next thing I recall is seeing an extremely bright, white light directly above me. I started thinking, ‘There’s no light above me in this room where I’m lying.’ Then I realized that I was no longer sweating and felt totally at peace. I lay there for a few minutes, just looking at the light. Then it hit me that I was dying. I said to myself, ‘This cannot be happening. I have a six month old son that needs me.’ The light disappeared.
Probable NDE due to fall with head injury.

2877. Yolanda H NDE 11/17/2011. NDE 6059. I saw white clouds all over. I looked up to sky and there were more clouds. I didn’t see God but I had faith he was there and I knew I was dead. I saw a shadow of a thin tall man looking down at me from the cloud, this man was walking on the cloud. I started to beg God to let me live. I said, ‘God please let me live; if I die my mom and my brothers are going to cry a lot for me. God please let me live. I don’t want to die right now; I’m too young. I want to grow up get married and have children. After that, you can take me but not now.’ I said this many times over and over.
NDE at age 7 due to being hit by a car.

2876. Tom S Probable NDE 11/12/2011. Probable NDE 6057. From Canada I was suddenly in front of a great Light. It had to have been God! It was so powerful that no words can describe it. The closest I can come is to say it was like being suddenly placed a few feet from the Sun; but instead of feeling heat, you feel Love, infinite Love. The Love emanated out in all directions in slow, gentle rays of light. Never can I forget it. Thirty years later, it’s still what I mostly think about. A vision of a man appeared down to the right of the powerful Light. I presumed it was Jesus. He looked like he does in most paintings. He was wearing a white robe and was extending his hands out to greet me.
Probable NDE due to medically delivered overdose of narcotics.

2875. Alexandre B FDE 11/4/2011. FDE 5375. From France, Original in French, translated to English by Jean Peter For about 20 seconds, I saw a series of scenes (between 10 to 12) about my short life flashed before my eyes. I did not see these scenes through my own eyes but from above as if I were an observer. In one scene, I saw myself in my mother’s arms. In another, I was in the hospital having my stomach pumped. This experience lasted for a few seconds maybe, but back then I felt like it lasted for several minutes.
Fear Death Experience from drowning.

2874. Maria GP Possible NDE 10/29/2011. Possible NDE 5378. From Spain, Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. It was a communication in the mind. The being stayed behind while I floated on, being pulled along by a wonderful river of lights. The river took a right turn, and I was in front of two enormous screens, depicting rounded forms made of constantly moving lights and colors. I stood before them, feeling that I was required to understand the movement of those lights. It was similar to needing to figure out a password. Leaving the screens behind, I found myself in darkness. At this point, the feeling of wisdom was enormous, and my heart was overflowing with love. I remembered Jesus, as if I were He. I turned towards the left, and there, at the end of a sort of tunnel, I saw a shining sphere. It spoke to me telepathically (I guess,) and said ‘Not yet, you have to return and guide your family’.
Possible NDE from childbirth.

2873. Rebecca B FDE 10/29/2011. FDE 6049. As I was rolling over and over I thought to myself, ‘Is this how it ends? Is this it; you mean the end? This is the way I go? It is all over like this? Wow, I’m okay with me then, if this is it!’ I remember feeling so at peace as things were obviously hitting me in the head which I do not remember anything touching me. I remember opening my eyes and looking at the side airbags deploy and I closed my eyes again. I felt an overwhelming calmness in my life that I have never felt and don’t know that I would ever feel as long as I am here on this earth. A certain stillness and comfort like no other.
Fear-Death experience at time of car accident.

2872. Christy H NDE 10/29/2011. NDE 6048. I remember waking up in a large field that was filled with grass and beautiful pink flowers. The sky was so blue. There were mountains in the background and a large forest on the other side of the field. What I remember most is how warm I felt. It was a very comfortable warmth like on a Spring or fall day when the weather is perfect and the sun is shining; like that. Sitting next to me was a little girl. We talked for a long time. She was a daughter I lost to stillbirth several years ago. I knew that’s who she was and I felt happy to see her and talk to her. She was about 7 or 8 years old which is how old she would be now if she had lived.
NDE during surgery to hemorrhage after delivery. Remarkable encounter with her own daughter who died as stillbirth eight years previously.

2871. Sache P NDE 10/29/2011. NDE 6047. At that moment, I was suspended in darkness, naked and cold. I could feel the presence of evil all around me. I kept trying to speak, but my mouth was sealed shut as my body was frozen, no movement. I saw my wife reaching out to me but she was going in the warm and comfortable direction. I woke up to a team bringing me back to life. There is HELL. Therefore there must be heaven.
NDE due to cardiac arrest during severe infection. Hellish experience.

2870. Paula L NDE 10/29/2011. NDE 6045. From Canada When this happened, I found myself astral projecting and then I could see a strong light. The feeling I was having when I looked at the light was of complete love and happiness. I then went through the light. I could see people at the end of the light that I recognized but I couldn’t get close enough to know who they were. I knew I did not want to come back to Earth. I knew I had died.
NDE due to suicide attempt.

2869. Sue A Possible NDE 10/29/2011. Possible NDE 6042. Then the next thing I remember was being somewhere ‘else’ and I was in absolutely no pain. It was kind of a weird void landscape almost as if it was foggy and yet it was light. Then, I remember a wonderful kindly man who asked me to sit down and talk to him. There was some sort of bench. The man filled me with a sense of awe and I loved him. He then proceeded to tell me something like (sounds hokey) the secrets of the universe and the meaning of my life; its past, present and future; that I was dead (which seemed fine to me), and why I needed to go back. It all made perfect sense. I agreed that I had to go back and yet I didn’t want to leave the man and the place and I cried and begged not to go back.
Possible NDE during delivery.

2868. Jane K NDE 10/29/2011. NDE 6041. From Australia. At some point during my experience of giving birth, I was aware that the atmosphere changed and there seemed to be a medical emergency. I could feel blood pooling in my chest (I was having a c’sarean and the lower half of my body was paralyzed from the epidural anesthetic). All at once, I felt the essence of myself/ the thinking part, separate from my body. My consciousness seemed to be heading somewhere. At that moment, I heard my daughter cry and I willed myself to reenter my body. When this happened, I remember saying, ‘Back down to Earth again!’ I was hemorrhaging massively during childbirth and the doctors and nurses were finding it hard to stop the blood flow.
NDE due to hemorrhage at childbirth.

2867. Lilith W NDE 10/29/2011. NDE 5376. From Mexico, Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. Then I came to a place where the path ended and there was a trickle of water in the mud. I saw someone approaching but I was not afraid. Gradually everything became lighter, a bit like day dawning, and I saw him far off and getting closer. It was my grandfather dressed in white and coming towards me. When he got to me, it was already sunny and in the distance, I could make out some people observing me, also, a kind of house or rather a church.
NDE from attempted suicide.

2865. Isabelle P NDE 10/20/2011. NDE 5374. From France, Original in French, translated to English by Jean Peter. I had two experiences, one when I was 15, during one of the many surgeries I underwent after a serious traffic accident, and later one when I was 22, when I was giving birth to my daughter. Both times, I clearly heard the surgeons talking to each other, saying, ‘We are losing her. It’s over. We’ll never be able to get her back.’

2864. Tom K Probable NDE 10/16/2011. Probable NDE 6040. From France I was greeted by four guides on a well-worn path in a field of the most beautiful golden colors I had ever seen. My guides appeared to be Mayan Indians. We all walked down the path together, with the leader out in front, and the others flanking me, either beside me, or in front and behind me. Although we spoke different languages, we all understood what the others were saying. I was told that there was nothing to worry about and that I should follow them on this path. The weather was perfect; the sky was the bluest blue I have ever seen, with scattered puffy white clouds.
Probable NDE due to surgical complications.

2863. Tish Z NDE 10/16/2011. NDE 6039. But then there was one that I just knew was my mother, who had passed. I’m not sure how I knew it was her. It reminds me of when you suddenly smell something, which vividly brings back a memory of the past. I was an adult, but I could hear myself call her ‘Mommy.’ She took my hand and led me to the edge of the tunnel and into the light; and I could see green rolling fields that seemed to go on forever, and a sky so blue. The colors were like nothing that I had ever seen before. There was this wonderful, overwhelming sense of peace.
NDE due to allergic reaction and stroke.

2862. Giuseppi C Possible NDE 10/16/2011. Possible NDE 6038. I recalled being in a dream state while under. I recall being on a large promontory in the dark. Way out in front of me was a light, not bright and not dim. I then said, ‘Hello.’ (No answer). ‘Hello, anybody out there?’ (No answer). I then asked, ‘Can anybody tell me the meaning of life?’ Then I received this EXACT ANSWER telepathically: ‘Man has not even scratched the surface to know what life is all about.’
Possible NDE around time of heart surgery.

2861. Michael S NDE 10/10/2011. NDE 6037. I remember waking up in an absolutely beautiful green field of grass. When I awoke, I was laying on my back looking up into the sky. The experience of ‘waking up’ in this field of grass seemed entirely normal and natural, as if I had always been there and simply woke up from a nap. The sky was a picture perfect day, clear and blue with a radiant sun. As I raised my head up from the ground to look around, I saw my deceased dog from my childhood bounding towards me. I remember exclaiming her name at the top of my lungs as I saw her bounding towards me. It was overwhelmingly wonderful. I felt completely at peace and totally happy.
NDE due to faint following medical injections and anxiety.

2860. Alex A NDE 10/16/2011. NDE 6036. I lost consciousness again and saw a very bright white light, unlike anything on earth. I noticed the sky was a beautiful blue, and I felt a wonderful peace and quietness for a moment. I had a flashback from a moment when my mother was driving me back to the ER before I passed out again, (which I had not seen,) and I heard myself say, ‘Please help me, God.’ During that flashback, I saw two radiant orbs in the sky from which numerous tall beings were rapidly descending and surrounding both our truck and the road in front of us all the way to the hospital. A being that was taller than the rest was standing on the hospital roof and holding something in his hands, but I could not see what it was.
NDE associated with cancer, blood loss and seizure. Experience occurred about 2-3 weeks prior to submission.

2859. John C Experience 10/16/2011. Sleep Paralysis 6034. As I began to give in to my apparent fate, I calmed to the point that I took more notice of what I was staring at. Obviously, there was the thing that was surrounding the cube. It was so arresting because it glowed with pure white light. Folks, I don’t know much about what I saw, overall… but I can tell you that this object was a halo, through and through. The white light was gentle on the eyes, yet resoundingly pervasive. As I stared at it, it dawned on me that I really couldn’t say what a halo was supposed to be exactly. I found myself briefly relieved to be preoccupied with it. A few moments later, I shifted my attention to the cube. It, or whatever was responsible for the speech, droned on as I scanned. There was something on the surface maybe here and there like writing or something. It definitely seemed like writing but in small, confined areas, I think. The writing, unfortunately, was unrecognized. I found little time to think on it before the speech stopped.
Sleep Paralysis Experience

2858. Pamela M NDE 10/16/2011. NDE 6032. All of a sudden, air didn’t matter and I began to fade away into this warm bright light. The light was so bright and comforting I wanted to stay forever. The light didn’t hurt my eyes but all you could see was the brightness of the light and you could feel yourself floating or rising in the light, when all of a sudden, as if someone pressed rewind, I was sucked down out of the light and back into my body. Now I’m not afraid to die because whatever you are suffering from it stops when the white light comes and it’s beautiful.
NDE due to criminal attack.

2857. Anna L NDE 10/16/2011. NDE 5373. From Argentina, Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon A. The Light resembled nothing I had ever seen, it was huge, I would even say infinite. Like a sun above the sea, it gleamed with every color. I could feel its warmth. It seemed to have its own life, its own consciousness, and its own movement, and it seemed to be aware of me and to be communicating with me telepathically. I perceived the Light above the water as being part and parcel of ‘my’ Light (that is to say, myself.)
NDE from allergic reaction to drugs.

2856. Billur P NDE 10/16/2011. NDE 5372. From Turkey, Original in Turkish, translated to English by Aylin. I had drowned and found myself in a dark place where I felt I was being pushed and pulled. I had no thoughts, fear or pain. When I started to regain consciousness, I felt dizzy and was pulled back into my body at incredible speed. The light was so strong I could not open my eyes but I could hear very well.
Teenager drowning NDE.

2855. Barbara W NDE 11/30/2012. NDE 16060. Breathing in the water was relieving and not at all what I had expected it to feel like. I took in another small breath of water through my nostrils and let it go down my throat. Still no pain. I hungrily swallowed a mouthful of water. There was no choking sensation as I had anticipated. Instead, it felt relieving as the water went down my throat. I kept breathing in water until my lungs no longer felt like they would burst. A peacefulness filled me. I watched as a bright white light came out of my chest and rippled up through the water. When I looked down, I could see my physical body below me. My physical body looked peaceful, calm, mannequin-like, with my blond hair fanned out. My arms were relaxed and poised slightly away from my body while my legs were in a standing position with my feet touching the mud. I looked like a life sized doll. Now that I was in spirit form, I felt at peace and I wasn’t the least bit scared.
Several NDEs including a childhood drowning NDE and an NDE with Jesus.

2854. Muzaffer E NDE 10/15/2011. NDE 5274. From Turkey. Original in Turkish, translated to English by Aylin. I passed out in the water, and then I felt myself moving upward. At the height of about ten meters above the water. I don’t remember if I was still moving upward, or whether I had stopped. I looked down and saw a hand in the water. I didn’t realize at the time that it was my hand – that’s where my body was floating.
Child drowning NDE.

2853. Therese B NDE 10/11/2011. NDE 5369. From Sweden, Original in Swedish, translated to English by Maria. Instantly, I am in a different dimension–in a beautiful place, which is filled with gorgeous white and golden rays of light. In front of me, there is a large group of people, looking so good and happy, all welcoming me. I feel right at home, as if returning to my real family after a long trip away. Another Consciousness is speaking directly to me, and it feels like our Father. This Being is love, safety, happiness, understanding, consciousness and freedom! I become aware that I now understand everything and that I have answers to all my questions. Now everything is very clear to me!
NDE after being struck by a car.

2852. Manfred K NDE 10/11/2011. NDE 5146. From Germany, Original in German, translated to English by Aylin. I saw many pictures and many places. I met many people, some I knew, some I didn’t. They were talking, laughing and crying. I thought that I was able to go to other dimensions.


2851. Lawrence NDE 10/10/2011. NDE 6031. The tunnel was green or light yellow. It was Palm Sunday. I had to go through palm leaves that I had to go through. This was slowly opening from a bigger opening entrance that was gently or slowly peeled open. There was a spiral tunnel getting narrower toward the end.
Physician’s NDE due to loss of consciousness, shared within weeks of its occurrence.

2850. Olu A Possible NDE 10/10/2011. Possible NDE 6030. From Nigeria. I can’t remember making any effort, or my feet moving in a walk. I then saw a not too big tunnel, which went downward. I am six feet tall, and that tunnel may not have been more than twelve feet wide. It looked metallic, glassy and white. The place almost looked like a factory area, for it was clean and serene, although it was not as bright as the man himself. There was a coolness to the light and it was not very bright. I then started flowing effortlessly down the tunnel. I could not see what was at the end. I heard no sound and no voice. Suddenly I halted in space and ceased going down.
From the U.K. now, but originally from Nigeria and experience happened in Nigeria. Describes lower GI blood loss, but not in any quantity that is life-threatening.

2849. Marie NDE 10/10/2011. NDE 6029. I remember me above my body floating. There was a swirling bright light. The light was full of light dust particles and a tingling of bells. I was weightless and felt great calmness. It was a special place without time or space; just being. I felt at peace. I never heard anyone speak. It was all knowing without words.
NDE due to illness.

2848. Jill Probable NDE 10/10/2011. Probable NDE 6027. I was in a ‘brown’ place; like velvet, soft brown, comforting, safe. A female being was to my right in a haze of gold, as if lit from within. I was raised a Roman Catholic and had a great love for the Blessed Mother (I called her ‘Blessed Mommy’) so this being appeared female and spoke in a female voice. She told me not to be afraid. She then told me about my life, that it would be quite difficult and that God would not leave me. She gave me details, but I only now have come to remember one, other than the number 23, she gave me. She told me I would have a ‘broken heart’.
Probable NDE at age 5 due to illness. Shared 61 years later.

2847. Sophie K NDE 10/10/2011. NDE 6026. From New Zealand. I remember saying ‘oh I can’t breathe’ and I was walking through the most amazing trees I had ever seen. The color, the light, indescribable, human eyes miss so much of the color in the World, we are so limited in what we can see. People surrounded me. I was communicating with all of them at the same time. I felt amazing, loved, at peace, utterly content. Sadly I don’t remember what was being talked about (feelings aren’t words.) I know that I had a choice, I didn’t have to return, I could stay, I was so loved. I saw my husband with a little girl of three or four with straight hair (my oldest daughter had wavy hair). I chose to come back. Coming back, I was trying to breathe with a resuscitation mask over my mouth and nose. As they are sucking the air out, I’m trying to breathe the air in. I had been given adrenaline.
NDE due to complication of delivery.

2846. Victoria H NDE 10/10/2011. NDE 6025. I had no fear after that and I recall being ‘sucked’ out of the driver side window of my Crown Victoria auto. My next recollection was opening my eyes. I saw a light so bright and believed it was the hot August sun overhead. (It was approximately 2:30 pm). I saw a figure against the sun and heard someone praying over me.
NDE (early on) and ICU experience (most of what is described) due to auto accident as a police officer.

2845. Judith L Probable NDE 10/10/2011. Probable NDE 6024. From the UK The whole of this valley was filled with beautiful, tall, slim trees in full leaf, which hung partly over my path, which incidentally was a path in that it looked as if it was quite well used, and wild flowers of all colors and hues. There was a smell of flower perfume in the air, heady and wonderful. I wanted to keep on walking up this path, and now I come to what is totally unexplainable.
Probable NDE due to illness with fever at age 4. Shared 63 years later.

2844. Linda W Probable NDE 5/17/2011. Probable NDE 22558. The tech in the ambulance kept asking me if I had ever had a heart attack as my EEG was not right. He ask me three time and I just left him. I could hear him but did not care as I was no longer in any distress and I was floating just above the gurney. The feeling was incredible as I am a worry type of person. I at this time did not have any worries at all. Actually, everything in my life seem wonderful. I did not feel as though I was going to stay in the ambulance but that I was going to a place that was beautiful. I don’t know how to explain this feeling as I have never had a feeling nor have I know anyone who ever expressed ever feeling like this. It was like I was not a person anymore. At least not the same person. Then we arrived at the hospital and they started doing test on me.
Probable NDE due to complication of high blood pressure.

2843. Maria NDE 10/10/2011. NDE 5309. From Germany, Original in German, translated to English by Hermann There was an indescribable, unbelievable love coming from this light. There’s no word for it. Every word is just too inadequate to describe this love and this peace, which fulfilled me and flew through me from this light. I approached it slowly but without moving myself. It was really strange. I knew that in this light is my child, my daughter, who has been taken from me in such a cruel way. I didn’t see her but I felt her presence and her love. I also felt the presence and the love of other beings but I couldn’t see them. Suddenly for some reason I stopped or was stopped. I still saw into the light, but I didn’t approach it any more. And I felt that here was a boundary and that I had to make a decision.
NDE from criminal attack

2842. Paula M NDE 10/7/2011. NDE 6023. Then I saw my grandpa. I had loved him so much that my heart died the day he died. He was telling me that I cannot enter that light and I better fight for the life I needed to live as I was not done on this earth. I needed to finish what I was put on this earth to do. They both stood in this light, which was brighter than anything I had ever seen. But I heard their voices to fight and not give up.
NDE due to auto accident.

2841. Martin R Probable NDE 10/7/2011. Probable NDE 6020. There was blinding white light that made it hard to see. It hurt my eyes. Then I remember the woman getting up from her chair and walking forward towards the light. I sat there then suddenly got up to follow her. I couldn’t move. I remember reaching out to her and yelling at her to wait and take me with her. I reached out more and more, but I was firmly rooted to the ground. My feet would not move, and I cried for her to come back. Then suddenly she turned around and looked at me. She then said in what to me seemed like English ‘It’s not your time yet.’ Then she disappeared.
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt with multiple medications.

2840. Danny B NDE 10/7/2011. NDE 6018. About three feet in front of me, an image appeared to me, dressed in black. I did not see a face, but I heard the voice say to me, ‘Danny Joe!’ (That is my given name). ‘Danny Joe, you have come a little bit early. You need to go back.’ At which time I started descending and then a sudden jolt stopped me again and I rested. It was so peaceful. There was someone standing on my left and I was approached by this figure, but to this day, I cannot tell who it was. I did recognize the voice that had spoken to me though. It was my grandfather on my mother’s side.
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

2839. Barry FDE 10/7/2011. FDE 6016. From Canada I felt like I knew and understood absolutely everything in an instant. Having everything revealed in only a moment, instantly put my life in perspective. And knowing exactly the meaning and relationships and truth of everything lets you know exactly where you stand without anyone else’s judgment to point things out. You just know. Afterwards, I did not fall backwards off the edge as I’d thought; I slid down a way and managed to regain control.
Fear-Death experience due to near fall while climbing.

2838. Muhammad A Probable NDE 10/7/2011. Probable NDE 6015. From Egypt I heard a voice asking, ‘have you had enough?’ I didn’t see who asked the question and I did not reply yet. Then my whole life flashed in a couple of moments with vivid detail. I felt that a male who had passed away was telling me, ‘take care of her.’ Then pictures of people popped up, and I felt a cool breeze although it was very hot, so I said, ‘No, I’m not done yet.’ Then I saw visions of my future and I felt that now I knew HOW to live in this thing called life. I was very peaceful at the moment, seeing my life. I was accepting death, feeling relieved and tranquil.
Probable NDE due to illness.

2837. Douglas H NDEs 9/25/2011. NDEs 6014. From Canada Then I became aware of something like a tunnel, and I remember feeling drawn toward it. I could see a small light at the end of the tunnel, and as I moved toward it, it seemed to get bigger. It looked just like a tunnel opening. As I entered the light, it felt like I became a part of it. The light felt like it passed right though my body, and when it did, it gave me such a good, calm feeling.
Two NDEs, both due to accidents.

2836. Pauline L NDE 9/25/2011. NDE 6012. From the UK. I then saw my grandson who hadn’t been born yet. My daughter had been pregnant for just a couple of months, and we didn’t know what sex the child was. He said to me, ‘Gran gran, please go back, or I won’t be born!’ He held my hand and I felt the love. It was overpowering.
NDE due to brain hemorrhage. Remarkable conversation with unborn grandchild who told her to return to her earthly life or he would not be born. Awareness of five more children to be born in the future.

2835. David D Probable NDE 9/25/2011. Probable NDE 6010. I had a serious liver disease and I was taken to the hospital by my sister. I heard them tell her that I did not have long to live. I saw a priest and nun over me, giving me Last Rites. I went to another place. About as much as I can say about it is that it wasn’t our world, although it was in the same location. The presence of Jesus within a mist, or cloud, was all around me. I was told He had things for me to do. Still in that other world, I was introduced to all the other patients on the floor. When I awoke the next day, I knew everyone’s names. They thought I was nuts, or looked like they did, anyway.
Probable NDE due to severe liver disease.

2834. Donna NDE 9/25/2011. NDE 6008. I said to myself, ‘Huh, I thought that one was supposed to last longer’, and headed up in a light cloud. It felt so perfect. I felt like I was going home and I felt comfortable and joyous with no doubts at all. It was like every cell of my body was happy and light and felt right and I have never felt so accepted.
NDE from criminal attack. Remarkable apparent life-saving Divine intervention, and apparent hellish NDE immediately following in her attacker (the attacker’s second hellish NDE)

2833. Sandra Z NDE 4/16/2011. NDE 22555. Instantly, I was standing behind myself. I saw my dad jump up and I saw my own body leaning back in the chair. I saw my little sister fly off my lap into the counter and into the person sitting in front of me. On the floor to my left, there was a little kids’ block with the letter A on it, and as I watched myself faint, I could see that my body, or my head, WAS going to hit that block. I thought, ‘That is going to hurt!’ Next, my dad was on top of me, smacking and shaking me. I came back into my body. When I looked up and saw my dad, I reached behind my head and there was the block. At that time, I could only cry, because I was so confused, having no real knowledge of these things or of God. There is no way anyone can tell me that this did not happen. I was a innocent child. Much later, I told my father the truth, and he understood completely.
NDE at age 10 due to loss of consciousness from unknown illness.

2832. Kelly S Possible NDE 9/18/2011. Possible NDE 6002. We were just getting close enough to hear this wonderful music, when the entity said it was time for me to decide to go back or to go forward. I had just had the thought that my husband would not begrudge me this chance, when I was yanked back and slammed back into this world, with bright lights and pain.
Possible NDE due to experience while under general anesthesia.

2831. Angela Probable FDE 9/18/2011. Probable FDE 6000. From Canada There were no words spoken at any point. Although I know these were a male presence, I remember not being able to see their faces. I distinctly remember feeling a hand, a physical hand, on my own, and feeling that my life was now spared, that I was now safe. Once on the shore, I remember looking back into the water and along the shoreline. There was no one there except for people visible off in the distance and back at the hotel.
Probable fear death experience and STE during life-threatening risk of drowning.

2830. Fergus NDE 9/18/2011. NDE 5371. From Ireland. I could clearly see myself on the gurney and three nurses shouting and slapping me. I could feel the dread of one of the nurses as she called for something. I was not feeling any pain at all, as I watched them trying to revive me. When they started using a defibrillator on me, my body felt nothing. But with every hit of the defibrillator paddles, I could feel myself being sucked closer and back into my body.
NDE due to suicide attempt.

2829. Lexy Probable NDE 9/18/2011. Probable NDE 5370. From Bavaria. In the beginning, the tunnel was glowing gently, but then it became more and more intense and bright. I experienced a feeling of depth and dimension. My speed increased as I approached the light at the end of the tunnel. The intensity of the colors deepened. In addition, I was now full of an expectant joy. A sense of warmth penetrated me, through and through.
Probable NDE at age six in association with ether anesthesia for surgery.

2828. Francisco R NDE 9/17/2011. NDE 5330. From Columbia. Original in Spanish. Translated to English by Maria. In that precise moment, I started to see myself from above. There was no pain any more, no cold, no hunger only tranquility and an immense peace. I saw my body being hurt by the electric current, but I did not care at all. The feeling of peace was so overwhelming that I did not need anything from this world. I realized that I was dead and that my body was just another nail that had fallen. I understood I had neither body nor eyes but my consciousness was intact, and I felt I could perceive the world with something close to omniscience; it was as if I knew everything. Then I started to leave. I could see the universe very far away at the end of a tunnel. Then I had this feeling ’wait a minute, I am dying and I have had no sons nor have I had a girlfriend and I wanted to have all that!’ I did not want to die without having had a full life!
Teenage NDE from electrocution.

2827. Marsy C Probable NDE 9/14/2011. Probable NDE 5307. Original in French. Translated to English by Jean Peter. The problem was that I did not know when to push. I was extremely tired just lying there quietly. After a moment, I felt I was out of my body. This was an unfamiliar feeling, extremely weird. I was conscious, I saw myself on the delivery table, and my husband was next to me. I could see the midwife and I could see that the weather was good out the window. But I was/felt out of my body, as if my body were separated from my soul. It seemed as though my body and soul was two different things; my body was below and I was above, seeing everything. The room was very bright.
Beginnings of a probable NDE from childbirth complications.

2826. Glenna C NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5367. I had this real sharp pain. It was just not going away – I could not even breathe. I’m telling you, this pain was so great that I knew I was having a heart attack !!! I could not even reach the phone to call for help. ‘This is it,’ I thought. ‘I’m going to die here by myself.’ The pain was getting worse and worse, and soon I could not even breathe. Then there was this real bright light. I had never seen anything like it before! It was so soft! I was drawn to it. I remember there was this guy whose face I could not see. But I knew him, and he knew who I was. As I looked around, I saw people sitting in this room that was like a tunnel. They all knew who I was, but I didn’t know them. Either that or I could not tell who they were, for they had no faces, or maybe their faces were just in shadow from the bright light. They were talking to me, asking me questions, asking me why don’t. I just stay here.
NDE due to heart attack.

2825. Kristy G NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5366. I was a passenger in a car and we were hit head-on by another vehicle. I remember seeing its headlights coming towards us. I was talking on the phone with my mom at the time and we were arguing about something. I just felt really still for a minute, then I saw a long dark tunnel with a light at the end and I walked through it. I saw my body in the car and felt my sister tug on my hair saying, ‘Kristy, don’t leave me. I need you.’ So, I returned. I did not want to leave. I went back into my body and my eyes did not feel like my eyes any more, they felt ‘different’ (I have been legally blind since birth). I went to the emergency room and just wanted to sleep. The doctor said I had a mild concussion and a broken collar bone.
NDE due to auto accident.

2824. Deborah D Probable NDE 9/10/2011. Probable NDE 5364. As soon as I remembered whatever it was I heard a sound and I knew from the sound that I was dying as I traveled down a tunnel. At first, it was dark as I continued to hear the sound but then I saw a small bright light come closer to me and get brighter. More than bright light, I knew it was GOD. The further I traveled the warmer and happier I felt. I was going towards the bright light. It is where I wanted to be. There were people there on my right side that knew me. It felt like I knew everyone. They were talking to me without words. They told me I did not belong there but I wanted to stay.
Probable NDE due to nitrous oxide overdose for dental surgery.

2823. Michaele S NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5363. We were ‘moving’ through a vastness (I have no other word for it) and it is at this point that language is just not enough. The vastness was not empty and yet it was! We arrived at what the being said (with a wave of his arm) was Love. ‘This is Love. It is always here, always streaming toward you, never diminishing, always loving you. All you have to do is be open to it. Receive it. This will heal you’. In that moment, I thought it meant my body healing. It did mean that but it was also about so much more and I learned this in the years following my experience. I have never found a way to truly describe what I saw there and resort to the only explanation I can give for something that defies our limited language. LOVE was boundless yet contained no color and all color, nothing and all things, it was tangible, dense, mysterious, and light. It was everything and nothing. It was an actual presence but not personality. It was all shape and no shape. I felt so joyous in the most peaceful quiet way, very grounded and accepting.
Remarkable NDE due to car running into a moving train.

2822. Catherine M Probable NDE 9/10/2011. Probable NDE 5362. I was able to see it for a second, and realize that they were all pictures of my life. I don’t remember what the picture was that helped me realize this. Something tells me that it was a picture of me and a family member when I was a small child, but I have no evidence or remembrance to back this up, I just remember thinking that.
Probable NDE at age 17 due to passing out from alcohol intoxication and hitting head.

2821. Barbara E NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5361. As I settled into the love without condition, I realized more and more how utterly and absolutely intelligent light was. The sheer level of creativity and intellect was emotionally and psychologically beyond comprehension. I knew that because light was telepathically melded with me, allowing me to sense at least a minute degree of what was contained within. There was so much thought and information that it felt as if zillions of scrolls of data about the true nature of reality just kept unraveling. I was lost and overwhelmed and had no comprehension of what it all meant. Yet the central message came through loud and clear. Reality is SO much larger, multi-layered and multi-dimensional than we realize. Consciousness is able to experience so much more than what we commonly practice. Everything has purpose and meaning.
NDE due to unconsciousness at time of illness.

2820. Angela E NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5360. They said to me, ‘you are not supposed to be here.’ I got a little scared at that time and thought I was going to get in trouble. There was a door there; it was closed. I remember someone opened it and I was so excited to see that person. They seemed full of love and kindness. That person that opened the door made me feel safe. They called for someone else to come through it. They then closed it back. I remember sitting there and getting a bit anxious for it to be my turn to go through it.
NDE at age 4 due to unconsciousness secondary to likely near heat stroke.

2819. Margaret V NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5358. From Canada. I was brought into the ER by ambulance. I don’t remember very much. I do remember being in the hospital and being brought into a room. I was there only a few minutes, or so I thought. I remember being aware that my chest was feeling different from usual. I also remember that, at the time, I was wondering if it was my body that I was looking down on because I was also looking around and seeing no one. I said, ‘Um hum, I don’t know where everyone is but something is happening here. I don’t feel right.’ Next thing I see is that I am in a dark room. It wasn’t round, it wasn’t square; it was just very, very warm, very beautiful, and very, very black.
NDE due to heart attack.

2818. Karen M NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5357. Off in the distance I could see a light. As I watched, it started moving towards me, getting closer and closer. I actually cannot say if I was moving towards it, or if it was coming towards me. But I do remember that I was not afraid, in spite of the strangeness of what was happening. I could feel the warmth from the light, which was not like any light I had ever seen before. It was bright, but at the same time, it didn’t hurt my eyes as I looked into it. I felt happy and unafraid. The light had just come to the point where it was starting to surround me, when it started to back away.
NDE due to cardiac arrest during emergency c’sarian section surgery.

2817. Regina D NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5354. It is difficult for me to describe what I saw. My view bobbed up and down as if I were floating. It didn’t look like a color, or a black and white, video. There were bits of color but the lines between colors were not totally clear. It was almost like a fuzzy picture with the different colors floating and bobbing around. There was a lot of commotion and noise that seemed to be muffled.
NDE at age 6 due to drowning.

2816. Tracy D NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5352. He looked so perfect, and so at peace. I can’t really describe how awesome, calm, and perfect he looked. When he passed, he was 73 years old and all grey beard and moustache. As he appeared before me, he was much younger: in his prime with thick, wavy, bright deep red hair, as he had when he was younger, only much more vivid and intense. Any imperfection or flaw he had was sculptured, chiseled away, to a smooth perfection. HE LOOKED PERFECT, BEAUTIFUL AND CONSUMED WITH PEACE AND JOY AND OVERFLOWING WITH UNDERSTANDING AND LOVE (I could go on and on).
Remarkable NDE. Met deceased father- contributor had to make a difficult decision to end life support for his father. His father directly addresses this. A must read for anyone who has struggled with end of life decisions for a loved one.

2815. Oscar O NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5350. I remember when I stood before my biologic father for getting into some mischief. I had a sense of dread and fear because I knew the circumstance was going to earn me a spanking. But this review with the light never once did I have this same sense of fear, it was as though I was being shown what happened in that scene and then what the outcome was.
NDE due to drowning at age 11. Encounter with Jesus and life review.

2814. Adam N NDE 9/10/2011. NDE 5349. I was above my body looking down at it. I saw him and what he was doing to me. He was yelling and shaking me and telling me to wake up. My lips looked very blue and dark. Even though I wasn’t in my body anymore, I felt like I could feel my heart stop. It was calming as soon as the beating ceased. I was exactly who I am now only without a body. Everything was the same, but I was just a consciousness, not a body.
NDE due to drug overdose.

2813. Jason P FDE 9/10/2011. FDE 5346. I floated there bordering on consciousness in a huge pool of blood until I was poked by a huge tiger shark. Then the shark poked me again. That’s when I had a life review, and was lifted out of the water by a faceless, glowing entity, and flown to shore in an instant. No one ever saw the entity but me.
Fear-death experience at age 14 due to surfing accident and encounter with a shark.

2812. Anne-Cécile NDE 9/7/2011. NDE 5296. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Simon A. I left my body. I was drawn, sucked, through a passage, like a tunnel, towards an intense white light. The space was not wide, but it was like a roadway. I was following along it towards the light. Suddenly I had a thought about my boyfriend, with whom I was in love. Immediately, I found myself back in my body in my car.
NDE from car accident.

2811. Julianna NDE 8/28/2011. NDE 5345. I then became aware of being surrounded by a bright white light. I found myself standing on one side of a canyon that stretched out as far as I could see, to the right and to the left of me. Looking down, as far down as I could see, it was all pitch black. I noticed that the source of the light seemed to be on the other side of the canyon. It seemed so close, and yet there was no way for me to get to it. I began to panic. I wanted so badly to be one with the light.
NDE due to heroin overdose at age 16.

2810. Roberta W Probable NDE 8/28/2011. Probable NDE 5344. I was pulled from my body. I understood that I was no longer in my body and at the same time I felt a physical resistance to leaving it as I knew that it meant that I was dying. I went through the typical tunnel experience with the light pulling me. My arrival at the light was a mind-blowing love that I recognized as God. Then I experienced a mind transfer of information through telepathy and I understood that when we die, we understand everything, which is so very simple that I did not want to leave.
Probable NDE during emergency c’sarian section surgery.

2809. Sally E NDE 8/28/2011. NDE 5343. I was aware of everything going on in the ambulance, but at the same time, I was in a long hallway. It reminded me of a hotel hallway, because I was aware of doors all along both sides. At the end of the hallway was one door that had such a bright light behind it, the rays were seeping out on all sides of the door. I had no body; just a consciousness. Then there was a great roaring sound (like a jet plane, just before it begins to go down the runway) and I was suddenly traveling at an unbelievable rate of speed towards the door at the end of the hallway.
NDE due to pulmonary embolus.

2808. Karen O Possible NDE 8/28/2011. Possible NDE 5342. From the UK. I was walking toward a beautiful, bright, white light. There were hundreds of people of all denominations walking with me. I wasn’t scared; in fact, I felt euphoria and excitement. It was as if we were on a path, or road. Different colored bright lights were rushing past me, and it was like walking out of a dark tunnel. The next minute, I felt like I woke up on some beautiful green grass that went on for miles and miles. To my right was a river and to my left was a wooden fence that also went on for miles.
Possible NDE due to suicide attempt

2807. Donna G Probable NDE 8/28/2011. Probable NDE 5340. After many tests to find the hole in my small intestine, I was rushed into emergency surgery at 11:00 pm to repair both the small intestine and the bladder. As the surgery was ending, my heart raced and then almost stopped. I was on a respirator for twelve hours and in intensive care for a full day. I found myself standing outside the archway of a living room area. (There was no door.) Inside was a sofa. Sitting on the sofa was my grandmother. Standing next to her, talking to her, was my sister Barbara, who passed away last year from colon cancer. Standing next to her, was my twin sister Diane, who had died at birth when we were born. (The cord had been wrapped around her neck and the doctors could not save her.) Except Diane was not a baby here; she was a grown adult.
Probable NDE from surgical complications.

2806. Jack B NDE 8/28/2011. NDE 5338. Suddenly, I found myself landing in the sand on an ocean shore. I got up and saw this long bridge in front of me. It looked like it was miles long but it only took me a few steps to cross it. When I got to the end, a man, who seemed to be my grandfather, was standing there. He told me, ‘You just need to finish what’s started, so get busy.’
NDE due to fall and head injury.

2805. Giselle L NDE 8/20/2011. NDE 5334. This tunnel was amazing. It was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. It was alive. It was energy, and its color was bright blue! A living framework, geometrically perfect lines, synchronized, moving lines that spun inside each other. So beautiful! I zipped through it and ended up in the void again, where I found myself staring through a square-shaped hole. I was staring at myself while the doctor and nurses were trying to revive me. I don’t like to call what I experienced ’emotion’. My body seemed to be free from all emotion. The word I would choose would be ‘bliss’.
NDE due to alcohol poisoning.

2804. Ozzie F NDE 8/20/2011. NDE 5332. As I stood on my side of the perfectly clear stream that was meandering crystal-clear water over the rocks, I noticed that my place of waiting was like the pasture field on the other side of the stream—beautiful flowers and grass carpeted. When I commenced walking down to cross the small creek to greet and hug Mommy and Sister Bonnie, my sister said, ‘Not now Bubby, don’t cross over yet.’
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

2803. Henrietta K NDE 8/20/2011. NDE 5331. I am not sure if I realized it at the beginning, or if I was made aware of it at some point later in the experience, but I was possessed by an insanely intense desire to reach an impossibly bright light that I could see at the end of this canyon. That light seemed to be the source of all the light, all the love, all the goodness, pleasure and peace in all of existence. It was the source of everything. It seemed to be the only thing that had ever mattered. It was contained within everything, it united everything and I was drawn to it as if by a powerful magnet.
NDE due to faint and apparent seizure.

2802. Storm Possible NDE 8/20/2011. Possible NDE 5326. There was no sound whatsoever. I saw what appeared to be a castle in the distance. It looked like it was made of white, light pink and powered blue sand. There was a drawbridge connected to this castle. I saw Jesus and John the Baptist walking down the bridge reading a scroll, deep into conversation with each other.( at 4 years old I may have known who Jesus was by a picture in our house, but not John the Baptist) I tried to wave Jesus down while running through the clouds. He did not look up at me at all. He waved his hand in my direction as if to say ‘Not yet, you are not supposed to be here.’
Possible NDE associated with fever at age 4.

2801. Beckie W NDE 8/20/2011. NDE 5325. The next thing I knew, I was sitting next to someone way above myself. We were looking down on the operating room where the doctor and six other people were working on me. I remember seeing the light shining on me. I remember the doctors in white. The person next to me had their arm around me telling me everything was going to be OK.
NDE due to cut with blood loss at age 5.

2800. Kelly D NDE 8/20/2011. NDE 5323. I had no sense of my body, including my neck, and I saw nothing at first, but I heard music which sounded like the most beautiful laughter of children or I thought, ‘angels; the cherubim!’ It was more beautiful than any music I had ever heard on earth and I felt that the angels laughed when good things happened on earth. I felt this was the music of the spheres. The angels (whom I never saw) were like petals of the Rose that enfolded me with love. I felt safe, free and certain that this was the gateway to Heaven. I cannot describe the utter joy and peace.
NDE due to car accident.

2799. Donna K FDE 4/5/2011. FDE 22536. From Canada Then they showed me ‘my’ experiences in literally a flash. I saw my birth, and every moment of my life concurrently – not a slideshow really, but my entire life was visible. I was shown various things in the normal world (don’t know where we were though…), and saw so much more than what I normally see. The colors were incredibly visible, and every object, leaf, breath was ‘visible’ – I could see everything ‘vibrating’ – it was as though rocks, leaves, the ground, the air – everything was ‘alive.’
Fear-death experience with detailed life review and spiritual insights.

2798. Darla M Probable NDE 7/3/2011. Shared Death Experience 16053. This light was always visible, even though we were twisting and turning. The light got very bright and large as if the tunnel was ending. And that is all I remember. I believe I took my baby to heaven. That is why I changed ‘I’ to ‘we’ above. One of my twins died sometime before the sonogram, and the other twin died shortly after delivery. Yes, I do have the sense that I had him cupped in my hands. I couldn’t see what was in my hands, though, I just had this feeling that as I was racing through this tunnel, my whole focus and all my attention was on protecting what I was carrying cupped in my hands.
Short shared death experience.

2797. Magdalena M NDE 8/17/2011. NDE 5294. From Mexico I could make out a golden light at the end of the tunnel, like a beautiful sunset. I felt flighty, light and very happy, more peaceful than I ever had in my life. As I was approaching the light, I could see something like several silhouettes waiting for me. It was all peace and happiness, but suddenly I could not go forward any more. I felt like something was stopping me and then something was grabbing my hand. I thought of my baby and of my other two daughters.
From Mexico, Original in Spanish. NDE from childbirth complications.

2796. Christal NDE 8/13/2011. NDE 5322. It was dark in the ‘well,’ but there was a light (this sounds so lame!) at the top of it. As the light grew brighter, I could make out some people, sort of leaning over, peering in. I saw three of my grandparents. There were two other people who don’t seem familiar to me now, but I remember knowing who they were at the time. I felt happy and very glad to see them. They spoke to me, but not with their mouths. I can’t remember what they said. I reached my hand up as if to let them pull me out, but my grandmother scolded me, ‘Not yet!’ she said.
NDE due to apparent respiratory arrest during illness.

2795. Lynn R NDE 8/13/2011. NDE 5320. I leaned back in a relaxing position, expecting to see my biological Dad, who had passed away a few years earlier, to walk through the curtain and take my hand and lead me through the curtain. I felt certain he was just on the other side of the curtain, (or cocoon like material) and I was content to wait on him to put in an appearance. As I waited for what seemed days, (although I wasn’t impatient – just content to be waiting.) I finally looked to my left and downward. I saw my husband standing with my children and son-in-law, who was holding my one grandchild.
NDE due to auto accident.

2794. Shane J NDE 8/13/2011. NDE 5317. I was standing in a field except the ‘grass’ was like lit up like fiber optics with a bright light on the horizon. I could hear what was going on in the emergency room but, when I looked back, I could not see the emergency room.
NDE due to respiratory arrest.

2793. Kay NDE 8/13/2011. NDE 5315. From Australia. I fainted, and next thing I knew, I was in another place. It was a white room, and I was sitting on a box covered in white shag pile carpet. The door to the left was shut. I could hear kids playing outside. I had no pain, felt happy and relaxed. I was talking to someone, but I could not tell you whom it was. I got the impression that they didn’t expect me there, as the person I was talking to was coming through a door. The door opened to me, and all I could see was bright light! But then, here on Earth, I heard my brother start to talk to me. He put a cold cloth on my head, and I was back.
NDE from fainting.

2792. Helen J Probable NDE 8/13/2011. Probable NDE 5314. From the UK. They came to take me to the operating room. I felt scared. My chances of survival were 50-50. During the operation, I suddenly found myself in this awful blackness. I felt sick with fear. It felt evil. I felt as though I was being dragged backwards down a flight of stairs and my head bounced down each step.
Probable NDE apparently while under anesthesia. Hellish experience.

2791. Charmaine M NDEs 8/13/2011. NDE 5313. From the UK. I followed her again, and this time the experience seemed longer. I met more family members who had passed away, and pets from childhood. I saw amazing flowers that were bigger than we have on earth, and fields of green and blue seas. I also got to see my Mother who was still alive, because I wanted to go home. My Gran said that I only had to think of her, and I would be with her. She could not see me, but I could see her. Again, I was told that this was not my time to die and was taken back to my body. The men who had beaten me were scared and said, ‘She is a witch’.
NDE due to criminal attack.

2790. Jeff L NDE 8/13/2011. NDE 5306. I remember all this as clearly as if it were yesterday. Suddenly, I was looking down at the room from the ceiling, and could see the couch where my parents were talking, the table in front of them, the desk, and the general layout of the room. My father got up and (I later realized) pulled me out from under the desk by my legs. That was the end of that memory.
NDE from electrocution at age 3-4.

2789. Eloise S NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5305. When I turned my head to look at the heart monitor, I realized that I was not breathing any more. I was above my body, up near the ceiling in a different dimension. It was like looking out at a 3D glass window. I tried to figure out what was happening, as I looked at my body below me.
NDE at childbirth.

2788. Karen G Mother NDE 8/6/2011. Secondhand NDE 5304. It got fuzzy as she seemed to be passing through the ceiling and she could look up at a light. But it wasn’t a LIGHT. It was like an openness; an awakening that her brain registered as a light. She said it felt it was like going home and she felt really good. But then she started to panic. My dad was in Korea and she was worried about who would take care of me on earth. The next thing she knew, she was slammed back into her body.
Daughter shares mother’s NDE due to cardiac arrest during surgery.

2787. Ellen A Probable NDE 8/6/2011. Probable NDE 5302. All of a sudden, I looked over to the ceiling corner of my curtained cubicle; there appeared in 3D color my beloved Dad and brother Joe – both deceased. They were in the form of a HOLOGRAM – transparent but vivid and pretty much life size (maybe a bit smaller). They said nothing, showed no expression, and just looked down at me. Now I was really happy! In my mind I would say they were there for minutes – but who knows.
Probable NDE due to blood loss from miscarriage.

2786. Joe W NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5301. My grandfather told me that they appeared that way to me because I would not recognize them in their spirit form. They disappeared and within the cloud, I saw ‘swirling clouds’. I felt a presence in there and tried to clarify whom it was. I could not see a face but felt the presence of Jesus on a throne. I said ‘who are you?’ He replied ‘I am your Lord Jesus ’and I fell to my knees. Jesus said ‘Don’t be afraid, I love you’.
NDE due to auto accident.

2785. Mitchell M NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5300. Suddenly I was high up in the air. I could see myself floating face down. I could see my cousin waving his arms and yelling for help, and my dad running toward the water. I also saw another man jump up and run toward the water. At that point, I remember thinking that I really wanted to tell my dad not to be so scared, because I was in a safe place. Then my favorite grandma, who had died several years before, was next to me. I didn’t see her; I just knew she was there. She said, ‘You have to go back, Mitchell, you can’t be here yet.’
NDE at age 11 due to drowning. Shared 52 years later.

2784. Kathryn A NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5299. I began to ask, ‘How do I get out of here? I am so happy to be home! Get me out of this car!’ I was lovingly told that I had more work to do. I was specifically instructed to take off my seat belt and get out of the car. I was shown something that appeared to me only in my thoughts for that moment, and that gave me the desire to return. I took off my seat belt and crawled through the space where the window used to be. As I began to rise, I asked, ‘How long do I have to hold my breath?’ and immediately the answer came, ‘As long as it takes.’
NDE due to car crash with car ending upside down at bottom of stream. Remarkable for angelic intervention that probably saved her live.

2783. Sabrina E Probable NDE 8/6/2011. Probable NDE 5298. I had a bleed on the brain, died and went to Heaven. There, I saw a lot of lights. The souls of those gone before me were the lights. It was like a room carpeted all over with lights. Way up front, there was God! My daughter stood behind God. She had passed about three years before. I made my way through the lights, and when I got up to the front, the Lord spoke to me. He said, ‘I just wanted you to see that I have her and that she is fine.’
Probable NDE due to what is described as bleeding on the brain.

2782. Curtis M NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5297. The next thing I knew I was looking down at myself watching the chaos, hearing my name. Then there was light, a wonderful bright light. I was moving towards this bright light. I wasn’t cold anymore. I was at ease. I saw figures and heard familiar voices. One in particular was my Grandmother telling me I needed to go back and that my family needed me. Then there was a feeling of calm. A hand touched my shoulder and I felt extreme love. I looked in the direction of the hand and a man’s voice spoke. It was the most calming, loving voice. She is right my son. You must go back. You are needed. I didn’t want to leave.
Heart stopped following back surgery.

2781. Tanya NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5295. Suddenly, I felt my body relax completely. Surrounded by darkness, I heard beautiful, gothic-type music, like angels singing. I felt myself floating – completely at peace – so happy!
NDE due to asthma and allergic reaction.

2780. Emily R NDE 2/6/2011. NDE 22524. They rolled me into the operating room. The next thing I remember, I saw my body on the table. Then I was in this dark room. I started to turn my head around and that’s when I saw the light. I tried to drag my hand and my body toward the light. The next thing I remember, I was in the recovery room. Next, the nurse started pushing the bed toward my room. My daughter was explaining to me what had happen, but I wasn’t paying attention. The next morning, I felt so at peace. I was in a daze! The doctor came in and explained what had happen to me. He said, ‘The surgery went well, but there was a problem getting the trachea out of your mouth.’ I had died but started breathing again on my own. I was very much at peace while he was talking to me, but also in a daze. In three days, I requested to go home. While at home, I started to remember. It was like a flash.
NDE due to surgical complication. Shared about three weeks after experience.

2779. Maria Teresa Possible NDE 7/31/2011. Possible NDE 5282. From Italy I suddenly found myself running down a long black tunnel. In fact, this was my soul leaving my body, running fast inside this tunnel so I could reach a white light, a bright ring. The very moment I reached the light, I turned around and, retracing my steps, ran back through the tunnel at the same speed, until I reached where I had started – only to turn around again and run back down the tunnel towards the light.
Teenage Possible NDE due to surgery complications.

2778. Art J NDE 7/30/2011. NDE 5290. The next thing I remember is looking at myself and seeing a bluish aura. I looked, I think, straight ahead and saw what looked like a rough cave. It was too dark to see to the end. Around me was darkness. Although at that point I couldn’t move, I could see the sides of the cave. It was pitch black but I could see a cloaked figure with its hood down to its chest. It lifted its, I think, hand, draped in the cloak’s sleeve and pointed at me what looked like an abnormally long finger made of, I think, bone, and said, ‘You.’
NDE at age 8 due to choking. He’s age 15 now.

2777. Burt G NDE 7/30/2011. NDE 5289. What I realized was that my dog’s feeling of bewilderment was the same bewilderment I felt, looking down at my own body! After a second or so, a sense of peace overcame all my emotions, and I knew I was looking at my now lifeless body. I did not care! It was a relief to know it was over. I knew I was very near Heaven – but almost instantly, I knew I could not stay there.
NDE due to advanced Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.

2776. Cate NDE 7/30/2011. NDE 5288. The moment my heart stopped the void became deeper and deeper, until it felt like it expanded forever. I sensed that the darkness was about to part and reveal a marvelous light. Then I felt the presence of my deceased grandfather. I don’t remember everything that was said, but basically it was revealed that I could move on if I wanted to, but once I reached the light I would not be able to return to my body. He did not want my life to end though, because I still had some important lessons to be learned in this lifetime. He said that after I learned what I needed to about love that it would be my time to go.
NDE due to apparent medication reaction. Remarkable for awareness her life had been saved multiple times in her earthly life. Remarkable also for awareness of two men who died in a car accident- she became aware of and confirmed details of the accident.

2775. Tallulah F NDE 7/30/2011. NDE 5287. Then I realized I was outside my body looking down on myself. People were coming in and I could not get their attention. I realized I was slowly losing my senses like vision, hearing, etc. and things began to fade. Suddenly I was moving at a high rate of speed up a tunnel or vortex. Far up ahead I could see a very bright light and it felt like the most beautiful feeling I’ve ever had as I moved toward it. I got close enough to the light to make out a doorway and the light I was seeing was spilling out from the door, which was only partially open. The door closed and I was in darkness till I came too in the ambulance.
NDE due to accident.

2774. Donna M NDE 7/30/2011. NDE 5286. When I awoke, I was above looking down at my body with emergency medical technicians and other friends I knew. I spoke to someone asking, ‘Why are they crying?’ I don’t know who it was that I spoke to, nor did I see them. The voice said they were crying over me because I was in a car accident. I kept asking, ‘Why?’ I didn’t feel pain, actually I felt peaceful.
NDE due to auto accident at age seventeen.

2773. Stephen Girlfriend Probable NDE 7/23/2011. Probable NDE/Shared Death Experience 5285. From the United Kingdom During the operation, she remembers, she saw me at my home, lying on my bed, and she called out to me by name. Now û at this exact same moment, I was indeed lying on my bed, just dozing a little, when I was awakened, startled by someone shouting my name. I ventured out onto my stairway landing to see who was calling, but nobody was there. I went back to lying on the bed. Over the next few days, I was able to speak to her and was brought up to date on all that had happened. A strongly surreal moment for me was when she said, ‘I saw you lying down on your bed, and I called out to you.’ I exclaimed, ‘Oh my God, I heard you call! How can that be? You were 20 miles away!’
Probable NDE due to emergency surgery for ectopic pregnancy. Remarkable OBE with her boyfriend hearing her when she was OBE in his room.

2772. Paul P NDE 7/23/2011. NDE 5284. I left my body and went up a tunnel toward a beautiful golden light. I was in the presence of a spiritual being, Jesus. He told me that it was not time for me to stay there and that I would go back, that my mom needed me. He told me other things that I cannot remember. I remember being in the hospital room and realizing that I was not in my body. I remember seeing a baby. I no longer felt sick or scared. It was very peaceful, and I knew I would be okay.
NDE due to congenital heart problem at age 7 weeks. One of the earliest age NDE ever recorded.

2771. Antonio J NDE 7/23/2011. NDE 5276. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated by Simon A. Succumbing to shock after taking drugs combined with strong medication, I lost consciousness and suddenly found myself observing something which was revolving. The most important thing was, wrapped in an incredible peacefulness; I thought to myself, ‘So this would be the other life.’ And I felt no sadness on that account.
NDE from going unconscious from strong drugs.

2770. Colin S Probable NDE 7/17/2011. Probable NDE 5281. From Holland. It was quiet; I heard no sound of any kind. The image faded and I don’t know how long I stood there, or what happened next.

2769. Agnes M NDE 7/17/2011. NDE 5245. From France. Original in French, translated by Simon A. When I separated from my body, I had a feeling of floating. I had a feeling of total blessedness, a very intense wellbeing. I was floating in surroundings, which were very luminous and soft, rising up towards a more intense luminosity.
NDE from childbirth.

2768. Matthieu M NDE 7/11/2011. NDE 5220. From France. Original in French, translated by Simon A. I was floating in a white light, but a white, which is unknown on this Earth. In front of me, the light became more intense, drawing me towards it. I was relaxed and felt wonderfully well. I didn’t want to come back at all.
NDE from going unconscious.

2767. Michael H FDE 7/10/2011. FDE 5278. I was transported to a dimension of void or limitlessness where everything was very quiet and peaceful. I felt an overwhelming sense that this was indeed my death, and it did not bother me in that space one bit. Time was incredibly distorted, and for about ten minutes I watched the void, waiting for what came next. An indigo light appeared as a field surrounding me from the furthest reaches of this ‘space’ and I became aware that I was a luminous body, transparent and gossamer. This indigo light was very far away but surrounded me on all sides like a bubble.
Fear-death experience and other exceptional circumstances around experience.

2766. Sue D NDE 7/10/2011. Shared NDE 5275. From France. Then somebody spoke to me in a loud voice. It was my dad. He said I had to go back because my mission wasn’t over yet. I fell back into my body in the bed, with a great sadness. My soul was totally sad, and I could not explain what had just happened to me. I remember getting up out of bed and wondering if I was going to die. The next morning I found out that my dad was in the intensive care unit and had had a massive heart attack. He pulled through and lived for four more years after that. He, by some uncanny transfer, enabled me to live a NDE without going through the death stuff, for particular reasons.
Remarkable account of an apparent NDE at the time her father had a severe heart attack. She was not aware her father was having a heart attack, and he was a continent away from her.

2765. Brandy M NDE 7/10/2011. NDE 5272. I began to be pulled very fast down a long, dark tunnel at the end of which was an incredibly bright light. He dragged me back to the bed and kept calling to me and I began to fight this thing that was happening to me. I knew I was dying but did not want to die; I wanted to live so that I could have children. Also, my brother had recently died and that was number two for my father; I did not want it to happen to him again.
NDE due to apparent inappropriately prescribed medication.

2764. Joanie S NDE 7/10/2011. NDE 5271. I found myself in what I now think of as a previous life. I smelled smoke from a fire I was near, and saw others around me. I looked into another woman’s eyes, and I knew her immediately as the woman I called my grandmother in this life. I knew then that our lives had ‘danced’ around each other since time began.
Exceptional NDEs. First NDE due to seizure during delivery. Remarkable description of past life in prehistoric time. Second NDE is shared NDE. Due to blood loss during surgery. The child she was losing at this time said that they would be back soon – and

2763. Leonard S NDE 7/10/2011. NDE 5270. I was now on a stage or podium and the light was fully on me. The light penetrated me fully and I had never felt love like that before. Every cell in my body was full of love from the light and I began to laugh and cry simultaneously. I was crying for joy. I knew I was delivered into God’s light and laughed at myself for doubting I ever would. And the love kept coming.
NDE due to illness.

2762. Mary P NDE 7/10/2011. NDE 5269. Now, across from me sat a man; I could see him much more clearly than everything else. He looked Mediterranean û black hair, and the most gentle dark brown eyes I had ever seen (on Earth, at least.) When he began communicating with me, it wasn’t verbal. I could hear it in my mind. He explained he came to me dressed as a modern, clean-cut human because he knew me, and (he made a bit of a joke) that if he had come in the “Robes” (his words) that I wouldn’t have believed it and would have thought I had gone crazy. Seems we started having a laughing argument over something, and I realize I was asking to stay…. I knew sitting with Christ and me.
NDE due to apparent cardiac event.

2761. Susan C Probable NDE 7/10/2011. Probable NDE 5268. I was immediately aware that I was in a different place, in a room somewhere, lying all alone on a stone floor or level slab, and very, very comfortable. It didn’t hurt my back to lie flat without a pillow under my knees, like I usually have to do. Anyway, I was lying on this slab, with my hands crossed over my chest like an Egyptian. All around me was dark, but I was bathed in the bright light of a spotlight. The room was the perfect temperature, and I felt no pain whatsoever. I was so comfortable, I didn’t want to leave.
Probable NDE following surgery.

2760. Harry S Probable NDE 7/10/2011. Probable NDE 5267. My soul or spirit made its way through mist and a tunnel. I arrived at the end, facing a solid oak door. Next to the oak door was a spirit, shadow figure who knew me really well. No words were spoken or exchanged. All communication was through mind communication between us. The oak door opened for me. I peered through. It was a beautiful place with music that sounded peaceful and blissful. I was feeling euphoric and wanted to step through.
Probable NDE, surgery-related (no further details available).

2759. Gina J NDE 7/10/2011. NDE 5266. My first real memory (I say real because the clarity from the moment I was at the doorway was a clarity I’ve never experienced) is of feeling like it was the first time I’d ever really been alive. In my mind, I instantly knew the meaning of life and the grand plan, and I was thrilled. The plan was so perfect – something no human mind could conceive of. Everything made sense. My place in it made sense.
NDE due to accidental drug overdose.

2758. Andrew J NDE 7/4/2011. Shared NDE 5251. The Lord then spoke and said, ‘Your father spoke to me earlier and did not wish you to die. I granted his wish.’ I conversed more with the Lord and my father. This portion isn’t something I can remember, but I get the hazy sense that it was just as if we were talking things over, and that they were both consoling me. My memory picks back up at the point where I expressed my anxiety at returning to life. I think I said, ‘Well, I’d like to get back down and check on Daniel.’ and I gave my father and the Lord a parting hug.
Exceptional NDE due to accident. Shared death experience – his father had died in accident, and was with the Lord in the heavenly realm. His father had asked that the contributor not die, and the Lord granted his wish.

2757. Matt H NDEs 7/4/2011. NDE 5248. I flashed at my friend Jason and he actually looked up at me for a brief second. I could see my flash; it was brilliant blue and lasted one second. I continued to float away. I couldn’t believe what was happening, yet felt extremely well. I had to accept my death. I floated into the blue skies, then into darkness (which I thought was HELL) where I saw bad spirits circling. I prayed that I would continue floating away from them, and not stop where they were. Lucky me, I continued floating upwards, and the white light began to take over everything. I floated towards the center of the light until it completely surrounded me and there I stopped floating.
Two NDEs. One at age five due to playground head injury and one at age twenty-five due to blood loss.

2756. Marjorie S Probable NDE 7/4/2011. Probable NDE 5246. I was up in the corner of the room, watching all this activity. What I can say is that I felt what I now describe as ‘orgasmic’ peace!!! I will never fear death because this feeling of peace was just bliss!!! I did not go anywhere or see anyone. I stayed floating in the corner of the ceiling.
Probable NDE at childbirth.

2755. Jennifer D NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5265. I remember seeing sparks of light and people at a distance in the pool but recall that they weren’t wet and I had a conscious thought that I didn’t understand how they could be there under the water and not be wet. I didn’t seem to know any of the people I saw. It was not until sometime later that I saw family photos and was able to determine whom I saw.
NDE at age six. Contributor is a hospice nurse.

2754. Carol J NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5263. Following behind us were two teeny tiny Cherubs. They were very small and had wings. They were naked with short curly hair, and were neither sex. One was solid pink and the other, solid purple. It was like they were trying to keep me entertained, and they did! I was trying to catch or touch them, with much laughter and giggles. They were fluttering around us like humming birds.
NDE at age six months due to unknown illness. Shared sixty-seven years later.

2753. Brenda I NDEs 7/4/2011 & 2/19/2012. NDEs 5259/6202. I knew it was my last breath. I had such a peaceful feeling. I can only describe it as ‘a peace that passes all understanding.’ Shortly after that nanosecond of darkness, I remember a light so bright, it was as if I were on a very dark stage, having a feeling that someone far greater than any human was appearing before me. I knew I had died and my soul was telepathically communicating with God. I remember praying, ‘Dear Heavenly Father, I thought I had done something to prolong my life, but it looks as though I have done something to shorten it. Please forgive me for any sin that might be keeping me from Your presence.’
NDE at age 52 due to surgical complication, and NDE at age 5 due to drowning.

2752. Sara V NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5258. Then I remember hovering up in the corner of the room. I could see out the window, and it was raining. I could see my body on the table down where the two nurses and the doctor were, and I thought to myself, ‘This is very odd!’ I felt like I wanted to float out of the room. When I tried, I realized there were three entities behind me that would not let me. These entities were entirely black, and had a human shape. They spoke to me, but words did not come out of their mouths. Instead, we communicated through our minds. They told me I could not leave the room, and that they were there for my safety.
Probable NDE at age ten during operation for ruptured appendix.

2751. Patricia P NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5256. Explicit content – not for children. While I was floating above them at about the height of a rooftop, I was shown a scene of green rolling hills off in the distance, where an ambulance was taking my body away. So I told those two persons that I wasn’t finished on Earth yet. They turned towards each other and seemed to be pondering my statement.
NDE at age seventeen due to criminal attack.

2750. Jeff Probable NDE 7/4/2011. Probable NDE 5255. All I remember since I was no longer experiencing amnesia, was that there was very bright light and everything was white, very bright white. Nothing else. I remember a sheet covered my whole body, head and all.
Probable NDE due to auto accident.

2749. Karen R NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5254. I remember feeling this warm, calm feeling and being in a warm light like the sun. I felt at peace and felt like there were others there watching me, but never showing themselves. I felt I was receiving a gift from somewhere. I know I didn’t want to come back, because it was so peaceful there. I remember traveling to that same place all three times – but even when I came back to life, I didn’t realize I had died until my mom told me later.
NDE due to suicide attempt with overdose of blood pressure medication.

2748. Morgan A NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5253. I left my body during this experience, and I found myself with my dog Tramp, who had just passed away a month before. I wouldn’t be here now if it hadn’t been for Tramp – that dog is the closest thing to me in the whole world. Tramp had saved my life before, and here he was, doing it again – even after he was dead.
NDE due to carbon monoxide poisoning.

2747. Bruce NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5252. All of a sudden I was traveling through a tunnel at extreme speed – so fast that I had a sickening feeling. Before I could adjust, I found myself in a very ornate light-filled room with a throne that was very high up. Once again, I had a sickening feeling, but one of a different kind. I wanted desperately to hide from the presence of God, but there was no place to go to get away from his presence. I was shown a review of my entire life, with joys, difficulties, sorrows, and everything in between.
NDE from unconsciousness likely due to heart attack.

2746. Swas NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5243. Non-western NDE My soul flew from the space in between two of those rods. I felt like a bird. I immediately looked back and saw my pale and fragile frame, lying at the base of the window with eyes closed, saliva dripping out of the wide-open mouth and a skeletal right hand that was somehow entangled with one of the rods. I was shocked, but didn’t realize I was dead. I then flew above the row of houses in that area. I saw children playing in the park, telegraph poles, television antennas on the roof of our neighbor’s houses and wet clothes hanging on the balcony. As I flew more, I began to see unfamiliar faces shouting from the streets, young men discussing a cricket match.
Hindu NDE at age 6 from illness.

2745. Lori K NDE 7/4/2011. NDE 5241. I was in the presence of Jesus. We seemed to be in a wide-open space, like a beautiful field or garden behind Jesus. I could see all my dead relatives there waiting for me like my father-In-law and my Grandpa Antonio and my Aunt Lillian and my Aunt Ruby and my Aunt Frances and my Great Aunt Stannie and my Uncle Bob. I recognized many more; I knew them all by their spirit, not by their bodies. They were all happy to see me and waiting for me until I was done talking to Jesus, it seemed like they were behind an unseen boundary.
NDE due to being struck by car.

2744. Pierre T NDE 7/3/2011. NDE 5216. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Jean Peter. In my experience, I feel like pure consciousness with no body limitations and no time limit. I feel that this part of me has always existed, even though the part of me that has been living this life hasn’t consciously known about it. I also feel profoundly that the problems I’ve been having are nothing. Like an iceberg, the greatest part of me, (the ‘underwater’ part) is this newly felt consciousness.
NDE from going unconscious.

Near Death Experience Research Foundation-Archives 2012

3226. Bernardette L Probable NDE 12/29/2012. Probable NDE 6539. From Australia I rose up above them, and saw they were all crying. I could also see myself lying in the cot with a nurse next to me. Next thing I knew, I was traveling very fast through this black tunnel towards a bright light. I was so scared, and crying out for my mum. Before I got to the light, a lady appeared to me. She said, ‘Come on Bernadette, it’s time to go.’ I was still crying and said, ‘NO! I want my mum!’ She looked at me and said, ‘You’re not ready to go yet.’
Probable NDE due to illness at age 8.

3225. Gene K NDE 12/29/2012. NDE 6538. Looking to my center-right, I saw a brilliant light coming from a doorway. Feeling drawn to it, I started walking towards it. A figure I recognized as Jesus appeared, and without any verbal exchange, he informed me that it was not my time, and that I needed to go back. His eyes were piercing blue, and he was communicating with me simply by thought.
NDE due to cardiac arrest during surgery associated with severe sepsis

3224. Manuel T NDE 12/29/2012. NDE 6537. I could sense I was in a peaceful loving, serene location. I could not sense any walls, floor or ceiling so I knew that wherever I was, it had to be immense. I was not able to see anyone but I knew thousands surrounded me, if not more, people or souls. The peace, the love and serenity that I felt was like nothing I ever felt, and I wanted to stay there enjoying that wonderful feeling. I remember feeling all the love flowing like a wave but when it got to me, it didn’t stop. I felt it flow through me and it was wonderful.
Two NDEs from cardiac arrest during two separate cardiac catheterizations

3223. Aurora NDE 12/29/2012. NDE 6535. From Canada Before I hit the ground, I couldn’t feel my body and I could see myself from an angle above. It was the strangest thing to look down at yourself. It’s the hardest thing to try to describe, but before I saw myself hit the ground, I was shot back in.
NDE at age 17 due to lightning strike.

3222. Jobe S NDE 12/29/2012. NDE 6532. Pulled a piece of steel into a 7,400 volt power line. I left my body instantly. I was hovering above my body watching myself getting shocked with no fear but a strong sense of peace and love. I knew I was in God’s presence. I asked Him telepathically, ‘wow this is it huh? This is how I am going to die?’ Then boom. I was back in my body, flopping around till power resided. I was able to go to the hospital. The doctor said I should be dead or have major organ damage, but nothing. It’s been four years and no damage. I went from 95% faith to 100% faith and have a close relationship with the Lord. He still gives me that intense love feeling, that’s how I know he is with me.
NDE due to electrocution.

3221. Denise V Probable NDE 12/29/2012. Probable NDE 6530. Shining down upon this sea of humanity was a blindingly beautiful light, pink, golden and white-brilliantly luminous. A sort of ‘voice’ or realization arose within me and spoke. Although nobody appeared, I felt the presence of something immense and eternal standing to my right. It informed me that the people I was seeing, were all those who had ever lived. Yet here they were-alive! It told me that all of them were me! Not only that, but I was each of them!
Probable NDE during emergency cardiac procedure following heart attack.

3220. Paul H NDE 12/29/2012. NDE 6528. From the UK The next thing I remember incredibly vividly is looking down and seeing myself on the stretcher. I felt a feeling of warmth, security and total peace. I could see myself somehow over trees, the experience was as if I was in a wonderful dream.
NDE at time of treatment of cardiac arrhythmia.

3219. Marten M NDE 12/19/2012. NDE 5432. From Belgium. Original in Dutch, translated to English by Annelies. All of a sudden, I was gone from my small house and I was in a dark space or tunnel. It scared me. I felt lost and didn’t know what was happening when I saw a white light in the distance. The light was whiter than white, a light we don’t have here on earth. I felt I had to go to the light but I didn’t know how. I was sucked towards it and once in the light I saw that the colors were much more intense than here. I saw flowers, rivers, and houses but they didn’t resemble anything on earth. No, everything was perfect, beautiful, everything radiated happiness and peace, and even the music was in perfect harmony with everything.
Suicide NDE. He clearly saw the paramedics prior to going into a coma.

3218. Julia O NDE 12/15/2012. NDE 6526. I knew it was the presence of, or the feeling of, God. God was telling me that it was not my time to come to this beautiful, loving place that I was sensing. God was letting me know that I had two young children to take care of and that I needed to go back to my body. I didn’t want to go and was so very saddened by this. I wanted to stay in the presence of this all-encompassing love, yet I knew that I loved my children and that they needed a mother to take care of them. I was so torn, I did not want to go back. But I felt pushed back down or nudged. ‘Go little one, go back, it’s not time!’
NDE due to blood loss at time of delivery.

3217. Fergus J NDE 12/15/2012. NDE 6524. Beyond the fence to the right stood a group of people, at least 20 or so. They were all facing me and were silently watching. They were dressed in strange garb, more like close fitting robes that covered their bodies and heads, but not the faces. The material was not exactly like anything I had ever seen. The faces were not covered, and it was too dark to recognize features, but I was certain I knew all of them. My parents stood out, mostly by their outline and position. They were at the front and more to the middle of the group standing together. Straight ahead and next to the group was a very ancient looking stone archway. A pathway went through it and straight ahead through a very long and dark valley. A long distance ahead, the valley sloped upwards. Over the horizon and beyond there was a very bright light shining up into the night sky, like the lights of a distant city. The night sky above the glow was lit with beautiful shades of purple.
NDE due to cardiac arrest

3216. Larry V NDE 12/15/2012. NDE 6521. I was trying to figure out what this tunnel could be or how it could be. I looked at it from above, seeing the opening. Within an instant, as fast or faster than thought, I was inside the tunnel. The tunnel appeared to be drilled out of rock with ridges in the walls. The tunnel appeared to have an overall color of yellowish tan, it had white in it that had some volume, charcoal streaks, amber hue here and there hard to describe but you can see what I saw, I will tell you where later. I started moving through the tunnel ever faster toward a speck of beautiful blue at its end.
NDE while hospitalized for sepsis.

3215. Selena E NDE 12/15/2012. NDE 6520. From Australia I only had eyes for the wonderful glowing light at the end of the tunnel, which seemed to hold promise of great warmth and love unending. I felt so joyful and excited! All awareness of my body on the bed left me as I tried for some time to reach the light. I knew absolutely that wonderful things were awaiting, if I could only get to the end of the tunnel.
NDE due to cardiac arrest while pregnant. Remarkable prior premonition of two children that she would have. The second of these two would be the one she would deliver just after her cardiac arrest.

3214. Marcus H FDE 12/15/2012. FDE 6519. From the Dominican Republic What I never will forget was being thrown under the truck and thinking that the rear wheels would kill me. But not one of the wheels hit me. Then when I hit the snow, I saw my whole life like in a movie running in front of me. I will never understand how, in less than two or three seconds, this could happen. As I landed I heard somebody very clearly and loudly saying: ‘It is still not the time’.
Fear-death experience at time of auto crash.

3213. Mark B Probable NDE 12/15/2012. Probable NDE 6518. I remember going super-fast, so fast my skin was burning off and then down a tunnel. At the end of the tunnel it was split, the top section was white and the bottom was red. There were voices saying, ‘Choose’ and I kept hesitating and they kept saying, ‘Choose now! Choose now!’ For some reason it took me forever to spit the name, Jesus, out but I said it like jeeeeeeeessssuuuuussss really long as I’m flying through this tunnel. After that, it went instantly to a better part of life. It was a life where everything seemed to be just perfect, where everything was revolving around me.
Probable NDE due to accidental drug overdose.

3212. Vikash C NDE 7/28/2012. NDE 22776. From the UK. I stop breathing fell and the next thing I saw was I on the other side of the road on top of the building like a bird on the roof looking down across the road at myself.
NDE due to being impaled on a rail.

3211. Magda NDE 12/13/2012. NDE 6454. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Sheldon. I started remembering many things from my life: my family, past situations and recent events, too. It seemed that lots of things I had forgotten about came to my mind all at once, while at the same time, I was feeling peace, serenity, and complete well-being. I felt that nothing was evil and nothing would do me any harm. I kept traveling directly toward a point where a light was emanating from what seemed to be a window or some kind of hole; I’m not sure what it was. When I got closer, I entered through something round. It wasn’t a tunnel. Perhaps it was a door. I do know there was a building with a waiting room, or some kind of receiving area, that I went into. There was a white light on the ceiling and I was seated on something like a metal bench.
NDE caused by extreme blood loss from a miscarriage.

3210. Annie G NDE 12/13/2012. NDE 5423. From Belgium. Original in Dutch, translated to English by Garry. Suddenly I was in a tunnel that was illuminated by a strong blue light. It was pleasantly warm and I felt endless peace and love. I wasn’t afraid because I heard my deceased grandmother call my name. I was curious and flew further into the tunnel. At a certain moment, I made the decision to make a right turn and go back. At that instant, I found myself back in my body with doctors inserting tubes into me. Sometime before this, I had seen myself lying on the operating table with people standing around me. Among them was my sister-in-law, who was assisting in the operation. Later I could describe all that went on during the surgery and also the contents of the operating room. I also knew that in the operating room next to me, a lady had died. The doctors seemed a bit shocked when I mentioned this to them later.
NDE from surgery complications.

3209. Eduardo D NDE 12/10/2012. NDE 5427. From Italy. Original in Italian, translated to English by Joan. Floating along beside me in this space, I saw, like in a roll of camera film, many moving pictures of my personal life. Pictures from when I was born, to when I was a child, to a boy, to an adult, and all at such a speed that it became incomprehensible how these moving images could be visible at that rate. Scenes that certainly belonged to my life but which I didn’t think I could have remembered anymore. Very beautiful scenes and very important moments in life, and all at a continually accelerating speed until I was about to reach the light shining in the distance of the tunnel. Then I felt myself pulled away and I regained consciousness in the recovery room.
NDE from an allergic reaction.

3208. Josef T Probable NDE 12/10/2012. Probable NDE 6479. From Germany. Original in German, translated to English by Anja Next, I was in a state where I knew I was dead. That was okay. Then I felt this incredible peace. I did not see anything. But the feeling was so overwhelmingly intensive, clear and enormous like nothing else I had ever experienced. Everything was simply well. It was this incredible peace.
Probable NDE from a Priest.

3207. Carlo G FDE 12/3/2012. FDE 6515. From Italy. I looked up for a second, and all of a sudden a deep realization of the wild beauty of the place swept over me! The serac (pinnacle of ice) was glowing with stripes of all colors, and behind it, a sharp, beautiful icy peak emerged over the nearby mountains. Suddenly, that beauty expanded to encompass infinity! I was pervaded by infinite joy, infinite pleasure, and infinite confidence in my climbing ability!
Fear-death experience from climbing an Alps mountain and nearly falling.

3206. Christopher NDE 12/3/2012. NDE 6514. It’s hard to explain, but it felt like a room where there were no colors, no walls, and no darkness. But the room did have a color. It was the color of light. I had no thoughts of my children, my family, and there were no cars, birds, trees, nothing. I knew something was wrong. I felt that I was dead but it was, like, not even a worry, like I didn’t even care. Then I noticed the light was coming only from one direction û the direction I was looking. There was no side view, only straight-ahead tunnel vision. I had to turn my head to see what I wanted to see. Whatever direction I looked in, that’s the direction I went in.
NDE due to heart attack.

3205. Gale S Probable NDE 12/3/2012. Probable NDE 6513. From Sweden I found myself in this strange place but I cannot explain where I was. It was just full of light and love. I was with a higher being and felt happy and peaceful. We were communicating somehow, but I am unsure how. All of a sudden, I was told I must go back into my body right now because it was not my time.
Probable NDE at age 14 at time of severe fever from chicken pox.

3204. Rod H Probable NDE 12/3/2012. Probable NDE 6508. From Australia. As for me, I was at peace, not feeling sick or in pain. I also felt I had not ‘gone anywhere’. It was more as if the earth had slipped away out from under me. I could still see and hear, but had clearly left my body.
Probable NDE at age 14 due to undiagnosed kidney infection.

3203. Jodi K Probable NDE 12/3/2012. Probable NDE due to medication overdose. 6507. I was in a tunnel of light. I was wearing white. Then my feet were standing on wood and I was being moved on the wood towards a beautiful green hill. It was perfect! I was not alone; there was someone holding my hand. I went to a place where I saw rounded stone arches. Now I am on a journey that began with my experience. As I continue alone, I learn what I can on my own. All I can say is that my experience was the only time I have ever known acceptance and love, peace and joy.
Probable NDE due to medication overdose.

3202. Sandi R NDE 12/3/2012. NDE 6505. I remember going right through the car’s roof and being held in clouds of amazing colors. The colors were brilliant and very comforting. I could ‘see’ the colors and ‘feel’ them simultaneously. It was as if I was held in someone’s arms, like a baby is held. I knew God was there with someone else too. I was not sure who the other ‘being’ was, I have always assumed it was Jesus who was holding me. They were not in bodily form; they were part of the cloud-like colors. I felt absolutely no fear, only peace and comfort.
NDE at age 7 due to auto accident.

3201. Sarah S Possible NDE 12/3/2012. Possible NDE 6504. It was like I could see everything, but I could not hear or feel anything. I saw the light bulb by my bed. I grabbed the light bulb saying,
Possible NDE vs. NDE-like experience during sex with her husband.

3200. Roland B NDE 12/3/2012. NDE 6503. I had my life flash quickly before me. It was as if I was watching a movie run very fast. I continued through what looked like a tunnel towards a light in the distance. As I approached the light it got brighter, and I was enveloped in this unbelievable feeling of love and security. It’s impossible to describe this feeling of contentment. All this time it was completely silent. Then, I was startled out of my ecstasy by a question that suddenly arrived in my mind. I didn’t hear a voice, yet it was as clear as if someone was standing before me. The question was, ‘WHAT GOOD HAVE YOU DONE WITH YOUR LIFE?’
NDE following contact with electric power cable.

3199. Walter C STE/SOBE 12/3/2012. SOBE 6510. From Canada. My spirit moved around the suspended shards, admiring them for a few moments, and then I turned to the ‘task at hand.’ This body (to which I felt no emotional attachment) had just been in an accident, and I wasn’t sure it was still inhabitable. I know that sounds odd, but that was my question; was this body still intact, could I still ‘use’ it? My consciousness positioned itself in front of the body to examine it, to scan it, from top to bottom no damage.
STE1 – SOBE at time of auto accident. Remarkable observation of shattered glass in air as time stood still. STE2 – Exceptional SOBE that lasted for months following receiving traumatic news.

3199. Chris T FDE 12/3/2012 & 7/12/2020. STE 6511/6510 FDE 9828. Exceptional Experience from Canada. My spirit moved around the suspended shards, admiring them for a few moments, and then I turned to the ‘task at hand.’ This body (to which I felt no emotional attachment) had just been in an accident, and I wasn’t sure it was still inhabitable. I know that sounds odd, but that was my question; was this body still intact, could I still ‘use’ it?

3198. Poppy Probable NDE 11/30/2012. Probable NDE 6500. I saw grey and pink lights. I remember flying through a very pretty tunnel. I found myself by a waterfall, and saw my father! He stayed with me for a while. It was an amazing place, full of vibrant beautiful colors, bright green grass and blue skies. My father looked wonderful.
Probable NDE associated with neurosurgery.

3197. Angel M NDE 11/30/2012. NDE 6499. I felt a thump, like a punch to my chest and then I felt a pull; a physical, touching-me pull. It was my spirit being pulled out of my body and it was fine by me. In fact, it was a good thing. I saw my body in the hospital bed, I heard what people were saying, and I knew I was dying. It was all good. It was a thump, then a letting go and a release of care. It is hard to describe, but I think about it all the time.
NDE due to suicide attempt.

3196. Bon A NDE 11/30/2012. NDE 6497. From India. Non-Western NDE. When I was living THAT life, I was aware of my entire past of THAT life, just as now I’m aware of my past in this life. The life I was transported to had me born to a family with modest means. From the room around, it was evident that they were much poorer than I am now, where I stand in this lifetime.
NDE due to unconsciousness from apparent dehydration and subsequent fall from a sixth story window

3195. Carol M NDE 11/30/2012. NDE 6496. I am still astounded by the life review. It was exceptionally different from my normal everyday consciousness. On this earth plane, it is virtually impossible to see an entire lifetime going by all at the same time, and totally comprehending everything as if you were living it all over again. It was like watching hundreds of movie scenes simultaneously, yet I was IN each scene, understanding every single detail. That would be impossible in our human form. Now I understand why science says that we only use 1/10 of our brains.
NDE at age 10 due to drowning. Shared 56 years later.

3194. Sharon M Possible NDE 7/28/2013. Possible NDE 16056. Apparitions appear some distance before me. All white and translucent. Their pale light swallowed by the darkness. As I approach, I recognize them. My friends, my family, all standing in groups, deep in conversation. Someone’s missing. Who? As I float onwards, they turn towards me, and stare in silence with emotionless faces. I look upon the image of each in turn, their blank eyes watching me as I slowly float by. I can’t help them. I felt numb. I couldn’t even say goodbye. Mum was last. I linger on her image for a time. She has Ian. He can help her. I don’t know what I can do. I’m dying. I turn away with regret, and let the tide take me. The darkness beyond is vast. Where am I going? I’m dying.
Probable ICU experience vs. Possible NDE.

3193. Eliana NDEs 11/19/2012. NDEs 6490. A few months ago, while taking a shower together Eliana blurts out. The doctor didn’t take my ouwie away, but God did!I was really, really dood (dead) and sick. The ghost brought me naar jou (to you) I was in de hemel (in heaven) toen (when) ik (I) was ziekie (sick), I had ouwie on my arm. She is a nice one, too, and a bad one. I ate a blauw (blue) cookie in de hemel (in heaven). You and I and daddy always go in heaven.
Exceptional NDEs. Infant nearly died at 2 and 9 months. Now at age 3, and talking, her mother records her stunning discussion about her experiences. A must read!

3192. Don Possible NDE 11/19/2012. Possible NDE 6493. I became aware of myself, walking in a grassy clearing that was surrounded by trees. At the time, I thought that I was seeing a light-grey sky in the distance. But now, I believe it was a dim light. As I continued looking at it, the light became a pure white. I wanted to go there, to where the white light was, and so I kept walking toward it. As I walked, I noticed how lush and green the grass and the forest were. I was at peace and I felt content.
Possible NDE under anesthesia during surgery.

3191. R.A. NDE 11/19/2012. NDE 6492. First, I experienced a quick, but comprehensive, replay of my life. It was similar to watching a movie of my life, except that I was ‘in’ the movie, rapidly re-experiencing my life’s events. I experienced something like the ‘traveling through a tunnel’ feature, but for me it seemed more as if the tunnel came to me. I saw a circle of light that quickly grew in size until I was inside of it. Once I was inside the light, I was aware that it was much more intense than earthly light. The light seemed to be coming from a sun that was so big that it covered most of the sky.
NDE due to being choked by a jealous girlfriend.

3190. Angela SDE 6/24/2012. Shared Death Experience 22764. The first shot did not make her relax at all. In a few more minutes, the doctor returned and gave her the deadly injection. As he was injecting the needle and delivering the shot I felt Roxy’s spirit leave her body and to my surprise I left with her, in no time at all I had traveled so far from where I was standing on earth and had traveled to another galaxy light years away. But, then as if no time at all had passed I was standing back at the exam table with the doctor and my dog’s body. Her spirit had just traveled from our world to the next. Do all dogs go to Heaven? YES guaranteed, that is what I learned. The experience changed my life.
Shared death experience with pet dog who was euthanized due to advanced malignancy.

3189. Leonell A NDE 11/15/2012. NDE 6462. From Venezuela Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. While I was lying on the ground, I remember speeding through a layer of clouds. I was dressed in the same clothes I had on, a pair of blue jeans, white T-shirt, sneakers. I was running towards a white light, which was very far off, and underneath it I recall a violet light. Suddenly I heard a voice. Turning round, I fell into an abyss, as if I had returned below. First, I heard a long sharp whistling noise in my ears, and then I saw shadows.
NDE from going unconscious

3188. Karen O NDE 11/15/2012. NDE 6469. At one point during the crisis I ‘saw’ images or pictures of my mom and her sister, my aunt. My mom’s image was to the far left and my aunt’s was right next to her. They were dressed up in dressy clothes and were younger than when they died in 2010. The images were of the head and shoulders. I also saw an image of my sister, who is alive on the West Coast, at the far right of my vision. I found out later she was praying continually for me when she heard how ill I had become. During this I thought, ‘I should tell Mom what’s happening’ then in an instant I realized she already knew what was happening and I didn’t need to tell her. The images seemed to ‘flash’ as I came into normal consciousness.
NDE several days later in ICU when she had a brief episode of unconsciousness. Saw deceased mother and Aunt appearing younger than at time of death.

3187. Hannah S Probable NDE 11/10/2012. Probable NDE 6486. The knowledge crept up on me with ever-mounting bliss that I could exist as a human being, but also outside of myself as an element in the universe, and that my human state was only a small part of what I really was. The happiness and joy that came with this knowledge cannot be described other than by saying I felt that I could laugh with delight and never stop laughing about the beauty and blissfulness of the true state of our existence. It was just sheer beauty, love and peace, and timeless bliss.
Anesthesia experience with interesting encounter with liquefied gold.

3186. Jackie F NDE 11/10/2012. NDE 6485. All I felt and knew was a great peace, a calm. I did not know where I was, but I had never felt such peace and calm in my life. Nothing hurt, and all I wanted to do was rest and not leave that place because what I was feeling was like no feeling I had ever felt before and I knew Jesus was there with me because I heard myself saying, ‘Jesus, I don’t want to leave.’
NDE due to a blow to the head after passing out and falling to the pavement subsequent to two months of hospitalizations for debilitating rounds of cancer treatments.

3185. Mark W NDEs 11/10/2012. NDEs 6484. I could not believe the magnitude of the peace I felt, just being out of my body! The clarity of everything around me was like the difference you feel when you wake up from a dream into reality. I had 360-degree vision. The calm, the peace, the joy I felt were indescribable. It wasn’t that I was in Heaven, I wasn’t. It was that there was so much peace and joy just being out of a body that’s continually warring to have its way.
Multiple NDEs and STE.á Recounted here: NDEs from taking someone else’s medication, and from fasting for an overly long period. Briefly mentioned but not recounted here, NDEs from a car accident, and while anesthetized during surgery.

3184. Samantha F Probable NDE 11/5/2012. Probable NDE 6478. During the actual delivery, I remember a brilliant white light surrounding me, and I knew what God was. It was pure joy! I heard the medical staff, saying, ‘Bring her back!’ I did not want to return because it was so beautiful. I shared this later on with my mom, who said it meant that I had almost died. This happened during the birth of my third child, my second son, who is age 50 now. After the birth, several nurses were in the elevator with me. They commented that I had had a difficult delivery. It was very real, and the memory of it is still with me today!
Probable NDE associated with a difficult delivery. Shared 50 years later.

3183. Michael H NDE 11/5/2012. NDE 6477. I fell off his back, and as I sank down, I panicked and was screaming and crying. This caused me to inhale water and I drowned. It was terrible. I started to hear bells ringing and everything got dark. Suddenly I was floating up in the air over the pool, watching all of the activity and seeing people working on my body. I wasn’t afraid but I remember feeling sad because my uncle Hank was crying. I started to notice a bright light up in the corner of the ceiling and I headed toward it down or through a long tunnel of light and sound. I noticed that the sides of the tunnel were blurred and had all different colors. I heard bells, like phones ringing and large bells gonging. Then I heard a deep voice say, ‘No!’ and it felt like someone grabbed me by the back of the neck and pulled very hard. It didn’t hurt, but I was suddenly being pulled very fast from behind, and I watched the tunnel receding. Then I was awake with all of these people standing around the pool staring at me as I lay there.
NDE at age 5 due to drowning.

3182. Julia B Probable NDE 11/5/2012. Probable NDE 5428. From the Germany. Original in German, translated to English by Ingrid. First I just closed my eyes, but after a while, I heard a voice calling, ‘what are you doing down there? Get up!’ I opened my eyes and saw someone who reached out his hand to help me up. When I was on my feet, I noticed that I did not have one scratch. I was OK. And I also noticed that there were other beings wearing long robes. These beings said to me, ‘It is wonderful that you are here!’ but I couldn’t see their faces. Further away I could see the forest from where I had come. I asked myself, ‘What is behind that forest?’ The being who had helped me onto my feet responded that behind the forest is a wonderful little village. But the being didn’t speak, it was like telepathy. When I was near that being, I had a feeling of security and happiness, simply indescribably good. Suddenly all the beings started moving in the direction of the forest. But the being that was helping me paused and asked, ‘Are you coming with us?’ I responded, ‘Not yet.’ I knew that, if I went with that group, I wouldn’t be able to come back. Having made that decision, suddenly I found myself floating high above.
Probable NDE at the age of 3 weeks old.

3181. Lydia LB NDE 11/4/2012. NDE 6460. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Sheldon. I was flying along with Sofia to meet up with my other babies. I remember that white light guided me, but it wasn’t a continuous light. It was as if a wide path was made of thousands of spotlights. About halfway on this path between the hospital and the house where my children were, a very intense yellow path of light crossed through the other path. I stopped there, before crossing those yellow lights and continuing on the beautiful white path.
NDE from labor complications.

3180. Francis J Shared Death Experience 11/2/2012. Shared Death 6476. Feeling peace beyond all understanding, I was sort of floating above a bed, a hospital bed. Medical staff surrounded the bed; I can still identify the staff today. There was a young man with somewhat dark complexion and dark wavy hair with a stethoscope around his neck and a lovely young woman with beautiful auburn wavy hair. I don’t know these people in my real life. They said to me (the body below me) that they were sorry they could not save me. I ‘think/talked’ to them, feeling so peaceful, that it was ok. Next, a wonderful green-yellow-white light drew me to it (still floating in the hospital room).
Remarkable empathic shared death experience dream at moment of her grandmother’s death.

3179. Evelyn vH NDE 11/2/2012. NDE 6475. Strangely enough I had not given any thought to how I felt while out of my body until I got back in it and had something to compare it to. While out of my body, I felt free; as though I had no boundaries. It seemed that I was part of everything and everything was part of me, as though we melted together and were one but at the same time, I was still a separate entity. I know that sounds confusing, but that is how I felt. Plus there was this wonderful sense of warmth; not like the warmth of temperature but rather the warm of love. The closest thing that I can relate it to is when my daughter was four she came in to go to the bathroom. I was sitting on the sofa at the time. When she was done, rather than going right back out to play she ran over to me, threw her tiny arms around my neck, and for no reason at all said, ‘Mommy, I love you.’: when she did that the warmest sensation swept down me from my head to my feet.
NDE due to head injury at age 11. Shared 50 years later.

3178. Mayumi T NDE 11/2/2012. NDE 6474. From Japan I felt a gentle wind, and also I felt my feet walking along the stony streets, touching many flowers as I passed. I came to a little country house (Japanese style). I had to go over to it and see what was inside! My two uncles were there, and they welcomed me through the first floor balcony. Then we had some beer together, all laughing with each other. One of them said to me, ‘You have to go back where you belong. Your dad is waiting for you there.’ Then I felt like someone was pulling me back by my shoulders.
NDE due to alcohol poisoning and cardiac arrest.

3177. Rynne R Probable NDE 11/2/2012. Probable NDE 6472. From the brain injury, I was in a coma. What I remember from the experience: I was in a room, it was all white, I was on a bed that was very soft and warm. My grandmother who I called Mimi was right there with me, she had died in 2002, as were many other people – but they were not as clear. I was aware I knew them and they loved me. There was no ego, nothing but love and warmth. I was aware that I was Rynne but that really didn’t matter. I was just outside Heaven and I could see the light on the other side of all these people I knew in the room. I felt like I was in a holding room. But everything was so peaceful and calm and beautiful. Who I was wasn’t really who I was. We were all love and that was all. I wanted to stay but my Mimi looked at me and said “Rynne, you have to go back, you have things to do and your Mother needs you.” I cried and said I wanted to go with her and stay. Mimi just smiled and said “Everything is going to be OK, but you have to go back. There are things to do.”
Probable NDE from brain injury.

3176. Linda C Possible NDE 11/2/2012. Possible NDE 6468. I remember feeling completely emotionally detached from the situation; even calling myself ‘her.’ I remember saying, ‘look, there ‘she’ is in the bed. I flew up, out of that room, to find the most unearthly magnificent light. I remember stopping movement to look carefully at the blades of grass. It was down and to my left. They seemed to be lit from the inside. I was in a giant open space like a field. No pain. No worries. I did see a tunnel but I decided not to take it. I don’t know why. It was around that time that I was absolutely threaded through with love; it felt like big cables going through me. This love that was nothing like earthly love. It was a feeling I will never forget.
Possible NDE associated during bed rest due to blood clot in leg.

3175. Stephen R Probable NDE 11/2/2012. Probable NDE 6467. On my first post-operative appointment with the surgeon I told him that whatever the young guy was doing really caused damage to by throat. He asked how I knew it was a young man so I walked him around the room of what I saw. When I said, ‘and you (the surgeon) were at the foot of the bed’ he ran out of his own office. How could I have known what was going on in the room because there was a curtain between my head and body so I couldn’t see the doctor at my feet?
Probable NDE due to unknown illness (I don’t know what myocardial syncodrepressoris is).

3174. Marsha R NDE 11/2/2012. NDE 6464. Then I was suddenly in a tunnel that was very dark, but I continued forward because a voice, probably male, was saying, ‘Come my child’. I was not afraid, but apprehensive. I then stood in the light, but there were no walls floor or ceiling. The voice told me to come with him. I remembered suddenly that I had just had a baby. I begged to be sent back because I was afraid of ‘who’ would raise my baby. I remember telling the voice, or being, to come back for me when my daughter was grown and did not need me any longer. Suddenly, I was back to observing my body.
NDE from nurse due to stroke during childbirth.

3173. Cindy B NDE 6/2/2012. NDE 22755. During my NDE in which I was basically hovering over the accident, It was very real. And I even watched people run down the hill to the car, saw my friend climb out of car, heard the people talking, and then someone working on my body. I was clinically dead for three minutes. At first, I thought it was like a sun behind clouds. But as the clouds started parting it got brighter and brighter. Different then our sun. I knew that if I stayed and watched the clouds part all the way than I wouldn’t be able to come back.
NDE due to auto accident.

3172. Donna G NDE 11/2/2012. NDE 6463. It was blissful in the spiritual realm, floating in an ocean of white light. I was content, until one of the nurses screamed, ‘We’re losing her’ and the sound of distress hit my spirit like a cannonball shot to the belly. Emotional energy feels stronger to a free spirit than to a spirit wearing a bodysuit made of flesh and bones. It threw me into the air and I came to a halt about three inches away from the ceiling. I looked down at my spiritual body to make sure it was still intact, and what I saw surprised me. There were two cherubs, stark naked except for tiny loincloths, and every bit as cute as the putti in Raph’l’s paintings.
NDE due to blood loss as a result of surgical complication under general anesthesia.

3171. Kate D NDE 10/16/2012. NDE 6443. ‘Look at me,’ his voice was low and gentle. ‘I can’t,’ I squeaked. I was too ashamed and too afraid to move. ‘You can,’ he said in a soothing voice, engendering so much love and trust to me in that moment. He reached over the bench with his hand and gave me his strength.’ Look at me,’ he urged again. When my shallow and tear-soaked eyes met his, I saw that moment of violation from his view. I saw his heart swell to its brink with torture and pain. I saw the Creator of the Universe cry out with pain. He reached out through time and distance toward me, and took my little hand in his. In that moment of violation, he sent his love and his comfort radiating through my little four year-old body.
NDE due to suicide attempt. Stunning clash of good and evil in a courtroom. Epic triumph of hope over tragedy.

3170. Christopher M NDE. 10/27/2012. NDE 6458. As I see it, I was near death. What is evidential to me is that I could not have gotten out of bed. In what I remember about having gotten out of bed, my left arm was not injured. I could not move the blinds even though they were light plastic or vinyl. I was not alone; someone put me back into bed. Although I did not see them, I trusted them. I’m 5’4′ but I could see the top of a six-foot wardrobe.
NDE due to auto accident.

3169. Nury M Probable NDE 10/16/2012. Probable NDE 6455. From Columbia, living in Thailand. During the fevers, for three days my mind was like in parallel worlds: I could be here and talk to others and at the same time my mind was like seeing my own mind in different times or lives, all passed so fast. Passing tunnels of darkness and tunnels of light and finally at the end of the tunnel of light to arrive to a place full of light where I recognized was my great grandparents and grandparents and others persons darling to me that had passed away. They were holding me with so much love and welcomed me to that place. I was full of peace and happiness. I came back to tell my mother I saw my grandparents’ deaths; and I slept again and continued to be there with them. My mother became very fearful and called a doctor to come to my home. When he came, I was dying. I felt such peace and happiness. He did not feel a pulse in me but my mind was with the heaven. So he rushed me to the hospital, where they admitted me for 5 days administering antibiotics and serum.
Probable NDE from illness. Originally from Columbia. College teacher of comparative religion. Interesting spiritual journey around the world. Experience is hard to understand and a little preachy.

3168. Annie P Probable NDE 10/16/2012. Probable NDE 6453. There I was greeted and held by Christ’s Pure Love/Light, and He transferred me to the front steps of the school in Nirvana. The walls, floors, ceilings, and furnishings, everything involved was of vibrant colors, hues and intensities that I had never seen on Earth. I wound up in a room where I remember studying a system of quantum physics and geometric shapes which would allow us to evolve an ability to quickly attract, and be filled with, only one energy that of: Light.
Probable NDE due to auto accident.

3167. Tammie W NDE 10/16/2012. NDE And Probable NDE 6452. This time I was in a cold, cave-like tunnel with water running down the walls. I looked ahead down the tunnel and an awful heat hit my face, taking my breath away, choking me. I could see people reaching out of the bottom of the tunnel for me. I remember wanting to give them a drink of the water that was running down the walls but I was told I could not. Then I was told that I was not going to die now, but that I had been shown both sides of the afterlife and it was up to me to choose which place I would eventually go to. I realized I was being given another chance.
NDE (first experience) and probable NDE (second experience) due to accidentally shooting self.

3166. Charles P Possible NDE 10/16/2012. Possible NDE 6450. While breathing a combination of ether and nitrous oxide gas, I began to feel a very uncomfortable vibration developing in my head. Following that, my consciousness seemed to shoot out into a very starry universe, with a sense of laughter (probably caused by the nitrous oxide, also called ‘laughing gas.’) While I was in space, I received a very strong, non-verbal, profound, clear and friendly message. It was that what was happening (my surgery) was of no significance whatsoever to my eternal existence. This OBE and accompanying message was very short, but I remember it well, even though it occurred about 60 years ago.
OBE associated with anesthesia. Shared 62 years later.

3165. Julia Probable NDE 10/20/2012. Probable NDE 6448. From Canada Immediately, I was attracted to this room and wanted to find out what was on the other side. A nearby spirit opened the door, and the most amazing lightness and joy filled my heart. I was literally enveloped in love, if that can be visualized. I looked, not directly into the intense light, but around it, where human beings and perhaps not human, were joyfully reunited with each other. I wanted so much to go through this door, but someone there told me that I couldn’t, and that it wasn’t my time yet. I pleaded to see God, and had a discussion on existence that was too sophisticated for any twelve-year-old to begin to comprehend.
Probable NDE due to severe Strep infection at age 12.

3164. Wendy M Possible NDE 10/16/2012. Possible NDE 6456. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Sheldon. I opened my eyes but I had no body. I was seeing everything that was happening from the ceiling. I saw myself sleeping and the doctors operating on me. I was amazed to see that in the room there was another person who they were operating on. I thought, ‘Wow, the operating room is shared’. I was conscious that I was up above without a body, but it was a strange sensation. I was not scared at all; it was as if nothing mattered. I could see without eyes.
Verifiable OBE due to being under anesthesia. The reason it is not a NDE is because the surgery was not life-threatening.

3163. Carl D NDE 10/16/2012. NDE 6440. Everything there was made up of light, light that was light but wasn’t light. I’ve never found adequate words for what to call it, except for ‘HOME.’ I just knew it was HOME, my real HOME. The place I’d been living where I was born and grew up that was no longer ‘home.’ It was only where I’d come from, where’d I been. And when I did return back to HERE, I felt totally out of place. This wasn’t where I belonged anymore it was only where I’m meant to be, just for a time. THEY promised that when I’m done, or when I’ve done all I can do, then I could go HOME again. To express what HOME was like has been impossible for me to do. Everything HOME is connected. It is all One. It’s Light. Light is love, or what beings here call ‘love,’ I think. Peace. It is all at peace, except when they showed me the grey-things, in the ‘void.’ I never remember asking, but I must have. It was light and grey, light and shadow or absence of light, or just less light. All creatures / beings are of light, but some have more light, some less. I’m not sure if where I was heaven, but I was at peace, I was loved, and I was HOME.
NDE due to smoke inhalation.

3162. Melanie E NDE 10/16/2012. NDE 6437. From Canada I don’t remember anything else until I saw myself below, on the ER table, with people working on me. I was always interested in medicine, so I said, ‘Oh, a blood transfusion, who is getting that?’ And a voice said, ‘You.’ I didn’t see a face, but my questions were answered, and I wasn’t at all concerned about the bloody person on the table being me. I was thinking what a weight had been taken off my shoulders and how I had never felt so good or peaceful, when I realized they were trying to put me back INTO the body on the table, and I tried to fight them off. Then suddenly I was back. The doctor told her I had no pulse or blood pressure when they brought me in, and it was a miracle I was alive.
NDE due to auto accident.

3161. HD NDE 10/16/2012. NDE 6436. I started freaking out. I was screaming and crying trying to get out of this horrible thing. Then everything stopped and all I saw was a bright light and a man standing there. He said, ‘This is your last chance, take everything back, take it all back. Think about everything you have done HD, take it all back.’ It just kept repeating in my head.
NDE at age 14 due to illicit drug reaction.

3160. Zachary G NDE 10/16/2012. NDE 6433. I remember spontaneously appearing with no body in a formless place. Only beings of pure consciousness melding with one another were there, along with my consciousness. Those beings directly communicated with me through some kind of intuition, not through thought. It was direct knowledge without a thinking mind. Putting it into words now, what was communicated to my mind was the understanding that, ’I am not supposed to be here yet; I need to leave here and go back.’
NDE due to criminal attack. Contributor is Buddhist.

3159. Bonnie W NDE 10/16/2012. NDE 6432. From England When I came round I asked the doctor how many times I had gone, he held up three fingers, and I went again. I found myself in a black void completely at peace. I had no self-awareness, no memory of who I was but I somehow knew that I was separate from the void. I cannot describe the feeling of completely peace: no pain, no worries, no sense of self, it was fantastic.
NDE due to cardiac arrest by Buddhist.

3158. Kadri M Probable NDE 10/16/2012. Probable NDE 6431. From Estonia I remember that suddenly I was in Heaven, standing before an angel who was holding the Book of the Lamb. To me, it seemed to be a wonderfully friendly place. Of course, I was surprised to be there, but I really liked it from the first moment of my arrival. While I was looking around and getting know the place, suddenly I heard a man’s voice saying to me, ‘You need to go back. Your time has not yet come!’
Probable NDE from near drowning at age 7.

3157. Edward B NDE 10/6/2012. NDE 6430. I was diving/snorkeling at Monastery Beach. I was standing in somewhat shallow water when the spear gun I was carrying went off. The spear went right through the front part of one of the flippers I was wearing. I fell down and my foot was pinned to the sea floor so I couldn’t get up. The water was just deep enough to keep lapping over my face and I kept swallowing and breathing water. As I struggled, I heard the distressed people who were around me. I saw everything that was happening. Night seemed to encompass me. I saw the light and I felt a whole wavelength of universal flow. I saw a grandmotherly woman beckoning me to come.
NDE due to drowning.

3156. Gwen J NDE 10/6/2012. NDE 6429. What I remembered was that I had completely merged again with God. It was a void, darkness, but unconditional love. I was no longer a separate being. I was where I belonged, where I came from. It was perfect. When it was time to return I had to again differentiate from God and become a separate soul again. Yet I was still a part of God.
NDE from physician. NDE due to rock falling on tour bus that she was in. Exceptional NDE and also how she lived her life after the experience.

3155. Chantal L NDE 10/6/2012. NDE 6428. From Canada As I looked at it, I noticed that this light was a being, a Being of Light! As this Being of Light was approaching me I started experiencing all kinds of images in my mind. At first I thought he/she was communicating with me telepathically but then I realized, all these images were memories, my memories. I was remembering who I really am. (It was like an amnesiac who regains his/her memory). I had total recall of who I really was. I was this old, old being, who had always existed. I was wise and loving.
NDE due to shock as a result of ruptured pelvic cyst.

3154. Sue M NDE 10/6/2012. NDE 6427. I began to feel warm and very pleasantly calm. I felt as if I had given in and was not afraid any more. I saw a really fast flashback of things that had happened in my life and then there was an intensely bright, flashing white light. I did not feel like I was in a ‘tunnel,’ but more that the light surrounded me and I was moving forward within it. Although I felt the presence of someone, I do not remember hearing or seeing anything.
NDE due to drowning at age 8.

3153. Melissa H Probable NDE 10/6/2012. Probable NDE 6425. At the time of my out of body experience, I felt an overwhelming peace that my soul was all-right with itself, no bad memories, nothing of being drunk while being passed out. I was aware of being alive, not a spirit though. I remember looking down and knowing that I was up in the air, suspended, with someone by my side helping me.
Probable NDE due to alcohol and drug overdose.

3152. Blanca N Probable NDE 10/4/2012. Probable NDE 6418. From Puerto Rico. Original in Spanish translated to English by Simon. At that moment, I seemed to enter a dark and silent place, full of peace. I began to see images of my life, starting with the first day I went out walking with my present partner, then going backwards to times in my childhood. There were so many times of happiness! I kept watching as my life kept going backwards.
NDE from suicide.

3151. Anna W NDE 9/30/2012. NDE 5426. From the Netherlands. My mother-in-law and grandmother vanished. In their place beside my bed appeared my late grandfather clad in a white coat. He had been a general practitioner/doctor during his life. However, I had never met him as he had died when I was seven years old! He spoke to me about the details of my medical issues and pointed out, in terms of centimeters, exactly where in my abdomen the three main internal infections were located. He specified this medical information in Latin. I don’t speak Latin but I understood him. Then he too disappeared. I immediately re-entered my body and so I was able to repeat everything my grandfather had just told me while the surgeon wrote down detailed notes and my husband listened.
Exceptional NDE from the Netherlands in English. Peritonitis following surgery. Remarkable information from deceased grandfather (who was a doctor) helped surgeon find areas of abdominal infection.

3150. Godfrey Z NDE 7/18/2012. NDE 16055. From Malta. I remember that subsequent to my passing out, I felt great peace and happiness. I saw no lights and heard no voices, but I do remember very vividly that as the staff nurses were bringing me back, I felt very irritated, exactly as if I had been enjoying a beautiful movie and the light had suddenly gone out during the best part of it!
Priest has a NDE.

3149. Roberto F NDE 9/27/2012. NDE 5422. Original in Portuguese, translated to English by Luana. Suddenly, I felt a sensation of peace and tranquility taking over me. Then I saw the image of an unknown man in a beautiful garden. I felt peace like nothing could ever go wrong. I felt safe. This was something inexplicable. As the man started talking to me I had the feeling I knew him somehow, even though I had never met him before. I also noticed a kind of light that came from him and that made me feel calm. It was as if that light was feeding the peace I felt. He told me I could choose either to go with him and see what I have done wrong in my life, or to stay.
NDE from criminal attack.

3148. John D NDE 9/24/2012. NDE 6417. As I lay there, all grew quiet. I heard songbirds singing in the branches above me. I wondered where they came from because a battle usually ran off all wild life. I was at great peace and in no pain.
NDE from being shot in Vietnam.

3147. Lillian K Possible NDE 9/24/2012. Possible NDE 6420. As I watched, it began to come toward me, though I might have been going toward it, I’m not sure. As I watched, it came closer and when it was very close. I saw that the light was coming from inside a large pink Lotus. The petals were opening to reveal more and more light. Curious, I reached out to touch it and instantly was inside it. An exquisite overwhelming feeling of love poured through me. It was so intense I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to bear it. I was feeling safe and loved for the first time in my life.
Possible NDE at a doctor’s office.

3146. Jason H Probable NDE. 9/24/2012. Probable NDE 6415. As I’m looking up towards the circle of light above me and a little to the right, I saw three figures, silhouettes, if you will, of my Papaw (who died in 1980) my great-grandma (who died before I was born) and my Nanaw (who died in March of 2001). There were no faces; they were just shadows with that bright light behind them. I did feel LOVE from the light and my grandparents. There was no sound whatsoever, but I could hear my thoughts and feel theirs. No words from them, but I understood them.
Probable NDE due to asthma.

3145. Mona M NDE 9/24/2012. NDE 6412. She told me, ‘No.’ I kept crying and saying I wanted to go with her and she kept saying, ‘No. Not now.’ When she had passed, she had been very deformed from severe rheumatoid arthritis that she had had for over thirty-five years. But when I saw her standing in front of me, she looked beautiful. I had never seen her without pain or physical deformity. She looked so good, but not as I remembered her.
NDE due to heart attack, stroke, and seizure.

3144. Carol S NDE 9/16/2012. NDE 6410. I felt wonderful. I never knew what happiness was before that moment. The joy was unbelievable. Then I became aware of a disturbance below me: my step-grandfather slapping my face, trying to revive me.
NDE at age 16 due to unconsciousness associated with illness.

3143. Sreenivasa M NDE 9/16/2012. NDE 6409. From India I experienced a vibrant feeling of traveling in an upward direction along a cool, translucent cylindrically shaped curving pathway. I was able to see thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, of glowing candlelight shaped spots of light. I saw the lights only, with no candleholders or lanterns moving freely along outside the translucent wall of the tube in which I was traveling. Every time I would go around one of the curves, I would see a human-shaped white light, appearing and disappearing, slowly blinking, about a hundred yards in front of me. It was traveling at the same speed I was.
Non-Western NDE due to criminal attack.

3142. Kanwal Probable NDE 9/16/2012. Probable NDE 6408. From India Another door opened and there were now two men standing there with beautiful clothes for me to wear. I was about to start putting them on, when the five men who had carried me from my home appeared. Again, they firmly lifted me by the arms, leaving the clothes behind, and brought me in front of that same white-bearded old man with his register and pen. He then told the five men that they had brought me before my time, and that I still had many things yet to do on Earth. Then he ordered me to help all living beings on Earth. He said that when my service duty was finished, I would be allowed to come back here again, otherwise not.
Non-Western Probable NDE.

3141. Kathi S NDE 9/16/2012. NDE 6406. I was enveloped in a warm happy wonderful glow of unconditional love and total peace. I felt the glow of the light surrounding me and could see a pinpoint of light off to my side (as if this is where the source was). I felt it more than anything, knowing it was a glow of love and acceptance more than anything else.
NDE following surgery.

3140. Demi B NDE 9/16/2012. NDE 6405. Ahead of me was a very bright light. I remember thinking that it was so bright, that if I looked at it, it would hurt my eyes; but it didn’t. I didn’t yet realize what the light was but I immediately knew that that is where all things come from, and it is where all things return, and that when I was back inside the light I would know and be everything. I was given messages; no one gave them to me, I just knew them, and the closer I came to the light the more anxious I was to be in it; to ‘return’ to all love and all knowledge.
NDE due to drowning at age 14.

3139. Urvashi G NDE 7/15/2012. NDE 16054. From India When I was on the operation table, I could hear what the doctors were talking about between themselves, despite my having of a full dose of anesthesia. Suddenly, I realized that I am going down a round-shaped tunnel, struggling to come out. I noticed figures that looked like humans, but small, like the size of a thumb. Sometimes they looked golden in color, and sometimes they appeared to be silver. The figures were horrifying to me with their voices and laughing. I went deep into extreme fear. I tried to look inside the tunnel, which was more horrifying.

3138. Michele M NDE 9/9/2012. NDE 6404. I could hear the Doctor screaming, ‘Order 5 units!’ I remember thinking so calmly: ‘Oh, this is what it’s like to die.’ I could ‘feel’ myself (I don’t know how to describe it) but ‘me’ pulling up towards my head and shoulders and starting to float up. I remember thinking, ‘This is easy; so easy.’ Then everything stopped, I opened my eyes again and could see and hear all the noise and the lights as they wheeled me down the hall and into emergency operating room.
NDE due to blood loss. Relatively abbreviated experience.

3137. Johanna S NDE 9/9/2012. NDE 6400. From Australia I found myself walking along a path next to a river. People were sitting on the right hand side of the river, on a riverbank, either alone or in groups, talking or reading or just sitting quietly. The feeling of peace and total acceptance was overwhelming. The colors were so bright. There’s nothing like them on earth. Eventually, I was called back. They told me that I had to come back here because my work was not finished yet. I was told that when I do go back, in many years’ time, I will not be returning here.
NDE due to stroke.

3136. Josefa L NDE 9/4/2012. NDE 6326. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Simon. Very soon I felt hot and found myself in what was a large passageway: more than a tunnel; at the end there was an enormous double door with a white light filtering through. The door opened and the light invaded me, surrounded me. On either side of the door there were rows of people (whom I did not recognize, they were rather indistinct), waiting for me, applauding me, I was engulfed in well-being. The feeling is indeed indescribable, it is pure happiness.
NDE from teenage roughhousing.

3135. Tam NDE 9/3/2012. NDE 6391. My grandfather was present, I do not know if he was sitting or standing but he was next to the operating room table where I was lying; he held my hand. He appeared to be much younger and healthier than the frail man he was when he passed in 2003 at the age of 86. He told me I would be okay and he would wait with me. I had no glasses on and I am blind as a bat but I could see him and the surgery going on in the distant part of the operating room. I recall that I was cold and covered by a sheet to my chest. I had three more deceased relatives visit. Two uncles, who I was very close to, who had passed several years earlier, came to tease and annoy me as they did in life. I could not see them but I knew they were there and I could hear them but not through words: I still cannot describe that. I have tried for five years to describe the ‘knowing-ness of the presence that was not visible and the hearing without words.’
NDE during triple bypass surgery.

3134. Marian S Probable NDE 9/3/2012. Probable NDE 5424. From Germany. Original in German, translated to English by Ingrid. Then I found myself floating just above my body. From that vantage point, I observed the doctors bustling around and looking worried. They were to the left of me, to the right and even beneath the gurney. Everything seemed to be bathed in a purple light giving the whole scene a mystical ambiance. A bright, white light was shining on the end of the gurney and the doctors were fading in and out of my vision. It was almost as if I were seeing them in a series of endless mirrors. They were moving away from me, receding into smaller and smaller shapes repeatedly. Their spoken words seemed to echo. It felt as if I were floating in an in-between world.
NDE from appendicitis.

3133. Victoria R NDE 9/2/2012. NDE 6399. From Canada She couldn’t hear anything I said. She continued to look out of the phone booth at passing cars. She couldn’t seem to see me. I tried desperately to get her attention, but she was completely unaware of my presence. She continued to cry and nothing I did, she didn’t acknowledge. After a few minutes, I recall hearing someone screaming, ‘She’s turning blue!’ At that time, I was unsure whom they were talking about.
NDE due to alcohol poisoning.

3132. Caren M NDE 9/2/2012. NDE 6398. I felt light. Like I was a feather floating up towards the sky. Then I saw the color baby blue. At this point, I didn’t feel anything. I was fine. Then I stopped floating, I was stuck. In that baby blue setting, my sister appeared like a photograph and I started hearing voices. After I saw her, my emotions took hold of me. I was sad and determined to stop going up. I kept saying to myself ‘No! I’m not done yet’
NDE due to choking from criminal attack.

3131. Cristael B NDE 9/2/2012. NDE 6396. I asked the Light, ‘What’s happening here? What’s going on?’ The Light parted, like stage curtains in front of me, and I saw a panoramic vista of buildings, parks, trees, flowers, beauty and so many things I could not comprehend or understand. ‘Where am I?’ The Light answered me, not in words but in thought-concepts. ‘Now you are at the moment of beholding the Imperial Heaven, the heart of God, the great Master Awareness that overflows to create all that is.’
NDE due to near fatal flu.

3130. Marlene S NDE 9/2/2012. NDE 6395. I could see myself on the operating table during heart surgery. It was as though I was hovering in a corner looking down upon myself and all the equipment attached.
NDE during heart surgery following heart attack.

3129. Enrique NDE 9/12/2012. NDE 6394. I then had a vision of a tunnel that was pulling me closer. I prayed the ‘Our Father,’ and the ‘Hail Mary,’ and then repeated these prayers once again: nothing, it was still pulling me. I then realized it was over. I knew I had only moments to accept the Lord Jesus, who had died on the cross for my sins. I became very desperate and made another attempt, saying, ‘God, show me who you are, show me how to LOVE.’ Immediately after saying the word ‘love,’ I bounced back into my body and took a huge breath of air!
NDE due to unconsciousness associated with dystonic reaction to cocaine use, renal failure and deep vein thrombosis.

3128. Roberto P NDE 8/27/2012. NDE 5420. From Italy. I was on a dark, calm tropical river, like the Amazon. I was working hard, pushing the boat forward with a long pole that reached down to the river bottom. I remember I was wearing a straw hat, white trousers and a rope as a belt. It was a sunny day and I was navigating this river by its dimensions and features, which I seemed to know well. Its banks were lush with thick vegetation. I was immediately struck by the intense colors, much brighter and richer than the ones I was used to. I took a deep breath, filling my lungs with the fragrant, moist air.
NDE from car accident.

3127. Jamie W Probable NDE 8/27/2012. Probable NDE 6390. From Canada. I could feel my own presence but had no physical being. The way I described it to myself at the time was, ‘pure mind.’ But this did not seem strange at all. None of the sensations I had seemed out of place or unexpected. I was neither afraid nor happy. I just understood everything made perfect sense. It was like dreaming at night, where you are suddenly living on the moon and your dog is now a dragon; and in your dream you don’t question these things because they are as they are. The thing that I was most aware of is that I could feel the presence of other minds in unlimited numbers. The feeling I get now when recalling this, brings to mind the word ‘infinity.’ I then felt a pull, drawing me into alignment with these other minds. It felt as though we were linked together in a chain that went on forever.
Probable NDE at age 15 associated with inhaling gasoline fumes.

3126. Rita A NDE 8/27/2012. NDE 6389. The next minute I was up in the corner of a room watching what I believed to be a man on a hospital bed. I did not wonder why I was there, I just was. I was very intrigued with what they were doing and believed they were running tests on him at first, but then saw more doctors bringing more machines and realized this was a life threatening situation and they were trying to save his life!! I felt their tension and worry over this patient. I watched with such interest for a while, very inquisitive of what was going on.
NDE due to cardiac arrest from air embolism.

3125. Pam P Probable NDE 8/27/2012. Probable NDE 6387. I was cold, shivering, frightened and panicked, knowing I was drowning. I remember thinking about opening my mouth and sucking in the water to ‘get this over with’, when I saw a bright light way off in the distance. It was just a pinpoint of light: very bright in the deep water, but it didn’t hurt my eyes. Incredibly, the light moved very fast and within a fraction of a second, engulfed me. Suddenly, I felt very warm and comforted like a cold newborn baby being wrapped in a warm, soft blanket. I remember feeling very peaceful. I looked down at my arms and legs and they were glowing in the dark. I heard a voice say, ‘It is not yet your time. You’ll be alright.’ I couldn’t tell if it was a male or female voice. Next thing I knew, my brother grabbed the back of my coat and pulled me out of the water.
Probable NDE at age 8. Contributor is an ordained minister.

3124. Gloria M Possible NDE 8/24/2012. Possible NDE 6353. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. Then I felt and saw myself going through a tunnel at great speed, stopping at the end of it. There was a space or city, and a big lake preventing me going further. I was very scared, terrified, I could see no one. I wanted to go home to my parents and my house. I did not go back through the tunnel in reverse; I just woke up crying out for my parents and weeping.
Possible frightening NDE for a child.

3123. Connie N Probable NDE 8/22/2012. Probable NDE 6386. The best description was of being forced through a passage that was too small. There was darkness on the other side like floating in outer space. I felt the presence of a loved one, my maternal grandfather who had passed years earlier. He spoke only French when he was alive and I only spoke English yet I fully understood communication with him. He asked me to follow him into the tunnel. Once entering the tunnel, we seem to float along at a very fast speed. At the end of the tunnel appeared a light. We went towards the light.
Probable NDE associated with anesthesia for delivery.

3122. Mira G NDE 8/22/2012. NDE 6385. From Poland This time, I could see the individual wheat plants in detail and at a distance of three feet. I could not believe that such wonderful colors could be found in a wheat plant and to have that golden yellow reflect the sun was just beautiful to see. I was above the shack and I looked at the wheat field all golden in the sun. One could see for kilometers and all there was blue sky of a summer day. At a distance I saw the blue cloudless sky with birds flying around and chasing each other, I was jealous that the birds could stay home in Poland and enjoy flying around in the sunshine. I saw some trees that must have been the border of the property. The trees were tall and they were full of dark green leaves.
NDE due to complication of general anesthesia.

3121. Mike R NDE . 08/22/2012 NDE 6379. I woke up again, this time to doctors and nurses asking me all these questions. I didn’t know what to say because they had just told me I had stopped breathing, so I was freaking out. Then I went out again. This time I saw my kids playing in the park. I was watching them from a distance, like I was really not there. I stopped breathing twice that day.
NDE due to auto accident.

3120. Michele M NDE 8/22/2012. NDE 6378. Looked to my right, no cars, proceeded to the curb, where I felt a hit to my hip. I think I opened my eyes, and there I saw a Yellow hourglass figure that came around me, and I closed my eyes. When I opened them again, I saw nothing but clouds and the bluest of blue skies, I asked (maybe telepathically) ‘am I in Heaven’, and I didn’t see anyone. I don’t know how soon after I said that, that I heard ‘Michele’ But I didn’t know what a ‘Michele’ was, I couldn’t rationalize nor did I try, I was in such a peaceful state of mind. After that, I heard screaming, and I thought (telepathically) ‘who is that screaming’ and then I opened my eyes, and I was back in my body surrounded by traffic that authorities had stopped, and my foster mother (currently deceased) asking me ‘what happened’.
NDE at age 16 due to being struck by a car.

3119. John K NDE 8/22/2012. NDE 6377. Then I started to rise: above my body and my wife, flowing upwards. No tunnel, just rising very high. I looked back and I could see my body and my wife far below. However, I was in no fear of falling, just peace, being lifted very gently higher and higher. (Please note: Out of Body experiences and death are two different things. I had had many Out of Body experiences and death was much different, much more freeing: ecstatic!). Then I seemed to jump, in some way, above all Creation in the Presence of God. The Light was so bright and infusing that I thought that it was power. Then I realized that it was Love. There was no judgment of any kind, only unbelievable Love. I looked at my body for imperfections, but I was perfect. I had 360vision and could see forever: All of Creation; All of the Universes; all of Life. Then I realized that all Creation is full of life and that Love is behind it all. I never wanted to leave there, ever. MD Anderson said that I am the only one in the world to have survived the terminal stage of the cancer.
NDE and remarkable healing from malignancy (leukemia).

3118. Kathy S NDE 8/22/2012. NDE 6376. I felt a ‘Whoosh’ and suddenly everything was perfectly clear. My mind felt sharp and alive and I felt wonderful. Then I realized I wasn’t breathing, and I didn’t need to breathe. I had no body. For some reason I felt like I was floating above the bookcase in my room, but I couldn’t see anything. It was all dark. I felt wonderful, sharp, and alive, completely at peace. I knew without a shadow of a doubt that everything was just fine; everything was exactly how it was meant to be. It was an incredibly peaceful and yet an energizing feeling. I was still completely me.
NDE due to respiratory arrest due to asthma.

3117. Annette NDE 8/22/2012. NDE 6375. From the UK I was in a tunnel, which seemed to be moving round/rotating. I was not rotating, just walking forward. As I walked through the tunnel, the walls were changing color all the time. The only way I can describe it was that it reminded me of a kaleidoscope toy a friend of mine had. The colors moved and were ever changing. The colors in the tunnel were not so strong. I remember blues and lemons. As I looked straight ahead, I could see a pinhead of white. I thought it was the end of the tunnel.
NDE at age 4-5 due to complication of dental anesthetic. Encountered being believed to be Jesus and her sister who died two hours after she was born who she never knew that she had.

3116. Grady NDE 8/22/2012. NDE 6374. I kept telling them that I was still there, not in a panic way; but I knew that if they quit then I was gone. I could hear the doctor cussing. The nurses were frantic and the anesthesiologist, who I had never met named Steve, were all going nuts. They stuck with me. After a drug induced coma for 5 days, they woke me up, I asked my surgeon why he kept trying to keep me alive and he said he didn’t know, that something kept urging him on. That’s when I repeated to him some of the things that were being said during that frantic hour that I witnessed above the table. The surgeon and the nurse verified some of the things that I told them I heard.
NDE due to cardiac arrest. Remarkable later verification of events seen and heard while under anesthesia and in cardiac arrest.

3115. Kiki Probable NDE 8/22/2012. Probable NDE 6373. I suffered a head injury due to inexperience with riding a bike and not wearing a helmet. I hit a tree and wound up in a ditch feeling very peaceful. That’s what I remember and it was so peaceful.
NDE due to head injury from bicycle accident.

3114. Arvind B NDE 8/22/2012. NDE 6372. From India. Then I saw a huge light in the center of the hall and I started drifting towards it. There was a huge light coming in from that huge hole. I am a fervent Hindu with blind faith in the Super Power. To be more specific, I firmly believe in our Goddess, Mother Kaalika. I could feel that she was there on the other side of that beam of bright light coming from outside the hall. I was happy to know that she was there outside. I bowed and tried to see her.
Hindu NDE from cardiac arrest. Relatively rare non-Western NDE.

3113. Robyn O NDE 8/11/2012. NDE 6371. The tunnel was the most amazing thing I have ever seen/experienced in my life with lights of every color surrounding me, comforting me, delighting me, somehow infusing me. I could feel the vibration of the colors and hear the music of each color and the colors were spinning all around me. I was in the middle of the lights but part of the lights too. It seemed like a very long, blissful, and peaceful time and it was so much more.
NDE due to auto accident in New Zealand.

3112. Ashley Probable NDE 8/11/2012. Probable NDE 6369. I’m being suffocated when I hear God. I began to beg for forgiveness, beg for my life, all I can see is my children, all I want is them. For a split second, I feel at peace, I know I’m dying and it’s okay. I’m looking over the ones I love and everything will be fine. Then the breathing I’m hearing becomes overwhelmingly fast. I realize I’m being given a second chance at life, as I’m struggling to get back into my body my life begins to flash again, just like before, as if I were flashing through a deck of cards, but this time is different I can’t make out this life, ‘who’s is it?’ Then I see my kid’s face and I know it’s mine!!!
Probable NDE after unconsciousness following illicit drug ingestion.

3111. George Possible NDE 8/11/2012. Possible NDE 6368. The children looked like images that were penciled in, but with only their face and hands, and no body was visible in the images. I then looked down (not that I was higher up or far above them), so I just glanced down at them. I see people were floating on the sides of this tunnel. The people were all white. They were all facing and drifting towards the bright light that I call a ‘bulb’. The people disappeared into that light/bulb. They were floating towards it but their feet weren’t moving, similar to an escalator and traveling very slowly
Possible NDE during or possibly following surgery

3110. Roy S NDE 8/11/2012. NDE 6367. Next, I was shot backwards through a tunnel at even higher speeds. I stopped at a giant planet, and went around in orbit with it for a bit. Then I took off in another direction also at a high speed. I found myself going through a large tunnel to which a smaller tunnel was attached. The smaller tunnel was sucking in somebody. There seemed to be a dark hole at the end. I swam towards it. Before I got to it, I heard a voice that said for me to not go there, ‘You don’t ever want to go there.’
Remarkable pre-birth & birth remembrance and NDE at age 4.

3109. Nona B Probable NDE 8/11/2012. 6365. I was on a fast-moving train. I was standing on the step on the right side of the train, holding on to the bar attached to the side of the train. My right arm was extended out as I enjoyed the rush of air and I traveled along so fast. In the distance, I could see on the right: surrounded by a beautiful forest, a shining white building, with a gleaming white dome. I thought, ‘If I want to visit that building, all I have to do is let go.’
Probable NDE due to low blood pressure after surgery.

3108. James NDEs 8/11/2012. NDEs 6360. At some point after the surgery, the medical staff was to remove the breathing apparatus and something went wrong. Everything was visual; I could see and hear the staff talking: panic-stricken. All of a sudden, calmness encompassed me. I could see myself floating in a clear liquid (submerged) with fine cottony-silk material, 2-4 inch strips, floating about me. My appearance was without hair and the shine of baby skin. My head began to feel cool like water being rinsed over it
Three NDEs following heart surgery.

3107. Karen vDK NDEs 8/11/2012. NDEs 6359. From the Netherlands. During the operation of April 23, I was aware of a hugely intense feeling of love and compassion. I traveled through a kind of tunnel. Time didn’t exist, and I found myself at a ‘gate,’ together with three figures. One of them, I recognized as my grandmother, whom I knew was alive at the time. The other two were other kinds of beings, human-like, but I couldn’t identify them. The feeling of harmony, love, and goodness was overwhelming. At one point, we were ‘told’ we weren’t allowed to pass yet and had to ‘go back.’
NDEs due to surgical complications. Remarkable encounter with grandmother in experience at time grandmother had a stroke, and again when grandmother died. Rare two separate shared death experiences.

3106. Peter N NDE 8/11/2012. NDE 6358. The next thing I remember was me, about 10 feet away from my body. I was looking at the body, whose eyes were closed. The body appeared to be floating at the bottom of the lake’s mud wall. I remember looking at myself for a short period of time. Time seemed like it was going in slow motion. When I was outside of my body, I felt the most intense feeling of inner peace that I have ever felt.
NDE due to drowning at age 8. Shared 55 years later.

3105. Mary H NDE 8/11/2012. NDE 6356. I felt like I was naked, floating in the middle of outer space, in pitch black darkness, but even though I couldn’t see, and even though it was complete darkness all around, I knew, and felt a bright white light, encompassing my whole body, in which I was floating in the fetal position. It was like I could see the light trough my closed eyelids. During this realization, I was a tiny bit scared. I was thinking that this isn’t right. It felt like nothing I had ever experienced before. It was like the best feeling you could ever think of on Earth, and intensified by a trillion.
NDE due to auto accident.

3104. Erika R NDE 8/11/2012. NDE 6354. Then I was moving through this purple light. Although it was dark, I wasn’t afraid. I then entered pure white light. I have a hard time explaining how and what I felt; because there are no words to describe how beautiful, loving and peaceful it was. It was like I was surrounded in warm, loving wings of light. I have never felt anything close to this, before or after, this experience.
NDE due to asthma attack. Remarkable communication from unborn son (she was 11 weeks pregnant) thus a shared death experience.

3103. Sonia M Possible NDEs 8/11/2012. Possible NDEs 6352. I was looking intently at this light when I saw an image slowly appearing from this light. I watched this image take shape and as it did, it was moving towards me in a sort of gliding, smooth motion. I could hear this grand voice that seemed to echo through my head and reverberate throughout my body, as the person took form in someone I knew: my sister in law. But I could hear a man’s voice speaking to me through her, and as she placed her right hand on my left shoulder, she said: All will be okay.’ I asked her, ‘why can’t I just go now?’ Without moving her lips, she communicated, ‘It’s not time. You will be okay. It’s not time.’
Two experiences that are possible NDEs.

3102. Sarah A Probable NDE 8/11/2012. Probable NDE 6351. From the UK. I was ‘waking up’ only what I saw was certainly not what I had expected! I did ‘wake up’; only to realize that the strange noise I could hear was an incredible ‘unearthly’ singing. The music was so phenomenally beautiful that I could not reproduce it. I do not consider myself a culturally ignorant individual but this was nothing like any music I had ever heard. It was not as one might imagine as ‘heavenly’ or ‘choral’. Instead, it was beyond adequate description. Glorious beyond merit, the sound was celebratory and powerful. I couldn’t make out was being said, not the language within it was projected.
Probable NDE due to cardiac condition.

3101. Angelia D Probable NDE 5/13/2012. Probable NDE 22728. I was just suddenly in front of several people, none that I recognized at first. There was no background or foreground. we were just together. Then, my husband (deceased for two years and two and a half months) spoke to me and said only three sentences but he said them to me repeatedly in his patient tone (he always knew how to talk to me): I am here. It’s not time my little white teddy bear. Where there is love. Others were around that seemed familiar but none were as familiar to me as my husband. The others would sometimes echo what he said but never in the same order.
Probable NDE due to illness.

3100. Mariana H NDE 8/10/2012. NDE 6306. Original in Spanish. Translated to English by Emily. Suddenly I felt an electric discharge throughout my body, and the journey began. I left hearing, seeing, and feeling what was happening behind in the earthly plane. Then I saw that dark cone, which was short, and had light at the end. I traveled at an astonishing speed towards it. Suddenly I saw before my eyes a wide space, very, very illuminated, in very bright yellow and white tones. I felt a very strong hum, similar to those noises that hospital apparatuses make to mark a death or a cardiac arrest. It was then that I understood that I was dead; I remember having consciousness, and asking myself at the same time, ‘What’s happening? What is this? Is this death?’ The music, almost celestial or angelic, sounded in the distance, but I was hearing it perfectly; it was beautiful. I was feeling light, I was not seeing my body; it was like I only had my consciousness or mind. I felt as though I was flying, and that illuminated place seemed to move about like a carousel, or a movie that was playing slowly, but I was only seeing light, and hearing this beautiful music. Besides that, there appeared before my eyes a harp in a resplendent, golden color that disappeared seconds afterward; the peace overcame me; it was a lovely feeling: tranquility, wanting to be there, I had no fear, nor sadness, nor memories. In this moment, facing my eyes, there appeared an enormous white wall as if to stop me and a straight black line appeared in the middle of it.
NDE from going unconscious.

3099. Ramon Probable NDE 8/9/2012. NDE 6320. Original in Spanish. Translated to English by Simon. There appeared tunnels of light; at no point did I stop thinking or looking. Occasionally, I dodged around black spaces. (I think that when you leave your body you travel at incredible speed; this makes the stars pass by in a blur so I could see tunnels of light.) When I came to a stop, I was facing a person identical to me, though I did not believe that it was me. Instinctively, I went to him and embraced him. After 20 years in the garment business, I noticed he wore a white shirt and pants, and carried a sky-blue bag. I was aware that he was entirely energy. I wanted to see his face, but he no longer had a face.
Interesting NDE with reincarnation imagery.

3098. Lori E STE/SOBE 5/1/2012. STE, SOBE 22717. There to my left on a screen was my life. I could see it! Me! I saw and felt all of my choices in this lifetime. There was absolutely NO judgment attached to it. None. I wasn’t judging my life, I was simply seeing it. To the right it was dark, dim. I ‘felt’ like the right side was reserved for when I actually did physically die. I would be privy to it then. It contained all the possibilities of all the angles of all the decisions I had made, played out in a different realm. As if, let’s say, I had decided not to get married when I did. What my life would have been—and it actually was played out, but not in a physical way. It was still acted out. It was all the ‘probables’ in life. I asked, in thought, or feeling, not with my voice, why I was here. I was told that it was because I had asked to be there. I knew this voice, as it was comforting and familiar and yet I knew it was God. How was that possible? I immediately questioned the voice about its being female. I had always envisioned ‘God’ to be male. I had expected to be greeted in a male voice. I was shocked to hear/feel that I had chosen this voice, because it was MINE! It was MY voice! I suddenly knew that I was part of the universe.
This is a MUST READ. Among the most remarkable spiritual experiences ever received. SOBE with stunning spiritual insights.

3097. Glenda G Father’s NDE (Sherman G) 7/28/2012. Secondhand NDE 6350. Two days later, my dad (who was not religious at all) told me that he had felt his spirit come out of his body and he felt that he was about 3 feet parallel with his body. He had looked down, and wasn’t afraid to see what was going on. He then became vertical and found himself standing to the left of the doctor at his physical body’s head. The nurses and attendants were running around getting instruments to try to get the bleeding to stop. While telling me this story, up to this point, my Dad had a faraway look in his eyes, but then he paused and told me that he could tell me the names of the instruments the doctors and nurses were using, because he could remember every detail of his journey.
Daughter tells of father’s NDE. Remarkable verified life review content.

3096. Karen H Probable NDE 7/28/2012. Probable NDE 6347. Mainly in colors of bright red, yellow, green and other colors that would light up as they tapped them, as if they were colored plastic with lights under them. They also seemed to be watching some sort of display further up on the slanted part above the keyboards as they worked. I knew about old-fashioned typewriters of that time, from having been allowed to use one in the office of the store where my father worked. These were different, very pretty and fancy, to my way of thinking.
Probable NDE during general anesthesia at age 6. Shared 60 years later.

3095. Roy T NDE 7/28/2012. NDE 6346. While unconscious, lying flat on my back, I saw a bright light, or conduit, in the upper right hand corner of the room (the east wall.) The brightly lit conduit, or tunnel, reminded me of the light that you see above an operating table because of its round shape and its intensity; but this light didn’t hurt my eyes. Two angels stood outside of the conduit: one was my younger sister the other a nephew.
NDE due to unconsciousness following a cardiac stress test.

3094. Jenny C NDE 7/28/2012. NDEs 6345. With each hit, I popped out of my body onto the terraced lawn at my house, looking at what was happening, but detached. In and out I popped, in the end staying on the lawn. I could see a woman was rushing out the door two houses down, and I heard her screen door slam shut. But there was such a nice little breeze blowing, and it was very peaceful. I hadn’t realized how high I had gotten, but I chanced to look down and saw a little girl in a brown dress crumpled on the ground far below and wondered who she was. The lady knelt beside her and I thought; oh, she will be okay, the lady will help. It was then that I saw the silvery white chord connecting me to the girl and realized it was me down there.
Two NDEs. One at age 5 due to head injury, one at age 46 due to anaphylactic allergic reaction.

3093. Sheree F NDE 7/28/2012. NDE 6344. All I remember is seeing a bright light, which was 1,000 times brighter than the sun. The feeling I had as the rays shone down on me was of peace, love, serenity, like I was safe, I was home, and I belonged. It was awesome! Then I woke up in the hospital with staples down the front of me, getting a shot of morphine every 4 hours for 5 days and I was angry with GOD for a few years afterwards: to allow me to experience the splendor, and then send me back to be all messed up.
NDE due to auto accident.

3092. Brandy M NDE 7/28/2012. NDE 6311. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. Suddenly I saw myself outside my body floating around inside the operating room. I saw my daughter. I saw the reflex-tests being done on her and the doctor listening to her heartbeat. The nurse made notes on a sheet of paper of all my daughter’s physical responses, finally saying aloud: ‘Normal reflexes and excellent lung-function.’ I could see myself covered with a green-colored sheet with an opening in the middle.
NDE from child-birth complications while under anesthesia.

3091. Rhonda R NDE 7/21/2012. NDE 6343. I thought, ‘Am I dying?’ A very kind female voice spoke to me saying, ‘No. That would never be asked of your parents.’ (My family had just lost my 27-year-old brother two years earlier from cancer.) This being, I believe, was an angel. The calm and feeling of pure unconditional love that emanated from her was far past anything possible for human beings. The angel told me not to fear the there was nothing wrong with me.
NDE from college professor due to allergic reaction.

3090. Loni S NDE 7/21/2012. NDE 6342. My next thoughts were, ‘So this is what it’s like to die! No more pain! I should be seeing JESUS!’ And I was in His presence within a nanosecond. I was not allowed to ‘see’ anything at all. The unconditional LOVE and acceptance I felt has no earthly comparison. I was told ‘telepathically’, as my ears heard nothing, that I could stay and, ‘All is well’. I had no memories of my life or earthly associations at that moment. All I wanted was to stay forever in the presence of His light and love. I was so happy to be home!
NDE due to complications from ruptured ovarian cyst.

3089. Edwin G Probable NDE 7/21/2012. Probable NDE 6341. I felt my breaths getting shorter and the next moment I was drifting through a grayish tunnel of clouds; I felt like I had a body, but could not feel it. (It has been so long I am sure I have lost memory of some of the details.) What stood out was the clouds seem to have beings guiding me through. Then this bright light, which would be normally blinding to the human eye, was in front of me. I heard my grandmother’s voice calling me and then she slowly came into focus and greeted me. She told me that I have to ‘turn around and go back, this is not your time’. I still ‘have to do what you were meant to do on earth’. If I pass her, I will ‘not be able to return’. She knew that I could feel the love and peace; but she also felt that I was afraid. She told me the fear that I was feeling is the guilt of leaving before doing what I was meant to do.
Probable NDE due to apparent attempted poisoning.

3088. SA NDE 7/21/2012. NDE 6340. I saw numerous people all gathered to welcome me into the afterlife, all my beloved were there. It seemed like a welcome home party but as soon as the doctors got my heart to beat I was drawn back to the earthly world. Another time I saw a tree with a lot of books situated around it. Reading what was on the covers I saw that they contained all the knowledge and mysteries of existence. One very large book seem to consolidate what was in all the smaller books but when I tried to lift it was too heavy to carry and I decided to return later for it. I saw a beautiful pulsating orb of golden light that I took for the Lord Jesus as it emanated perfect peace and love. I had no tunnel and meeting of a being of light I think because I was continually being resuscitated by the medical team.
Short NDE. Scant details, but enough to determine NDE due to cardiac arrest.

3087. Thomas S NDE 7/21/2012. NDE 6338. The next thing I knew, I was in this beautiful room filled with the most gorgeous white light shining all about. I could feel a loving, comfortable, unfearful feeling; I felt no pain whatsoever. It was easy for me to breathe, and I felt so comfortable. In front of me there was a bed made of stone with beautiful white sheets and a pillow clad in a white pillowcase. I could see the stone corners of the bed. There were three stone steps to climb up to the bed. I started (or at least I thought I did) to push myself up to get into the bed by going up the stone steps.
NDE due to lung collapse and cardiac arrest one day following arterial bypass leg surgery.

3086. Marcela L NDE 11/8/2010. NDE 16051. From Argentina. Original in Spanish, translated by Max. In During my coma, I saw a marvelous, very white light, and I felt very much loved and at peace. I seemed to be in a place where there was no pain, and I did not want to leave. Suddenly I saw my grandmother, and my father, who had died a year ago. My grandmother was wearing a dark brown tee shirt with a light brown skirt just like what she used to wear when she was alive. I did not see how my Dad was dressed. Then my grandmother said to me, ‘No, my sweetheart, you still have many years to go before you can be with us.
Very short NDE from surgery complications.

3085. Don B NDE 11/5/2010. Shared Death Experience 16050. While in this state of looking over my body, or ‘hovering,’ I remember feeling Kathy, although not in a normal sense. We connected but not as our physical selves, but connected in a way that is hard to put into words. I guess it could be described as a telepathic or kinetic connection. As I replay in my mind this telepathic connection, I realize it also included another presence. It seemed as if all three of us had a tug of war going on. As I try to assimilate this in my mind, it seems that the tug of war was like this presence, or Angel had a hold on Kathy, and Kathy had a hold on me. There seemed to be a back and forth tug and finally a hard tug breaking me away from Kathy’s presence.
NDEr who died with his wife in a shared death experience. This is a bittersweet NDE; gotta go find the Kleenex box.

3084. Maribell B Possible NDE 7/15/2012. Possible NDE 6337. I don’t remember having a body, but I remember there were two kind, warming presences with me, and feeling like they were helping me. Back then, I thought they were angels. I was in the sky, thinking it was nighttime and looking at the stars. After some time, being amazed by the sight, I suddenly appeared in the church I always attended. I was facing the cross of Christ. He told me I was special and important, and then he had the two beings send me back to my body.
Possible NDE at about age 4.

3083. Bret B NDE 7/15/2012. NDE 6336. Suddenly, I was in the most serene place I had ever been in my life. I was happy and I didn’t feel any pain. I actually didn’t feel a physical body at all. It was beautiful in that the sun was shining, and I felt as though I was floating with the clouds in the most peace I had ever experienced. Without voice, the Lord asked me if I was happy with what I had accomplished in my life and did I want to stay. I have to be honest and say that I really did want to stay.
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

3082. Sarah Other STE 7/15/2012. STE 6335. Eventually I began to see or sense someone with me. They looked like living things that moved and breathed. They were bright blue and bright red. They seemed two-dimensional: having height, width, but no depth. I felt I was dead at this point. I can’t explain how, but I knew this was a bizarre place and I must be dead to be here. It wasn’t dream-like at all: it was very real. I was very scared, because I did not know what would come next. I didn’t like these beings because they were nothing like anything I’d ever seen.
Cesarean section given with anesthetic agents that included Ketamine. The difference in the content of this experience from typical NDEs is noticeable with frightening emotional tone, and unreal appearing entities. May have been anesthetic awareness (favor) or Ketamine experience. This is an example of a spiritually trans-formative experience (STE).

3081. CJ V Probable NDE 7/15/2012. Probable NDE 6334. I remember all my surroundings were purely white and very soft feeling in my mind. I was in such peace I just wanted to stand there; I was in no pain at all. The feeling of comfort is almost indescribable. Then, I looked and my mother, who had passed away about ten years earlier, was standing a distance away from me, like maybe 10 yards, but directly in front of me. She was also in white; her hair was as I remember it when she was a young woman from her pictures. She had a firm, mother firm, look on her face and she said ‘Go back CJ, it’s not time yet’.
Probable NDE due to infection around time of delivery.

3080. Georgia P NDE 7/12/2012. NDE 6332. My mind became clear, and I found myself going into a very dark tunnel. I was one of the bright stars shining in that darkness. I had no body: I was floating in darkness. I heard a male voice telling me I needed to make some changes in my life, and for that reason, it wasn’t time for me. My mind was like a fast elevator reviewing a whole lot of different aspects of my life. It was going faster and faster as I tried to figure out what changes that I needed to make.
NDE due to blood loss around time of premature delivery.

3079. Hazel K NDE 7/12/2012. NDE 6328. I remember that all of a sudden I felt very cold. I seemed to be headed up an incredibly long flight of steps, similar to those you climb to get to your seat inside a football stadium. The steps were very narrow and dark, but I could see at the top that it was very bright. It was as if some kind of light source was there. I also sensed that someone was up there but I never actually saw anyone. I remember getting closer and closer to the light, as if I were being swept along up to it.
NDE due to blood loss.

3078. Sara C NDE 7/12/2012. NDE 6327. From Philippines At this moment, it was pitch black and I lost my sense of sight, hearing, speech and feelings. I had no idea how long it was until I saw a bright light. This light grew larger and larger into a tunnel. Inside this large tunnel, there were myriads of bright, multicolored lights on its walls where I flew alongside the tunnel. I also heard angelic songs, which I’d never heard before. I felt I was flying and I felt at peace with myself. I did not see any beings inside the tunnel, only myself.
NDE due to apparent allergic reaction to Demerol at time of emergency cesarean section delivery.

3077. Oliver V NDE 7/12/2012. NDE 6325. From France, Original in French, translated to English by Yvonne. I found myself floating in a place without tangible limits, indescribable, immaculate and saturated with the essence of this absolute light, made of immeasurable Love. It is hard to explain the dimension of the experience with human words. I was an observer without a physical body, bathed in pure elation in the midst of this Love. Love so deep that all memories faded, in this misty and luminous space without border. I felt completely transcended by this immense, amnesic Love and thought I would just stay in this unknown but somehow felt familiar place. It felt even more familiar than my home on earth.
NDE at age 11 from heart attack while under general anesthesia.

3076. Michel L NDE 7/2/2012. NDE 6319. From France, Original in French, translated to English by Simon. I suddenly found myself floating upwards from the bed, towards the ceiling of my hospital room where I remained, lightly floating and weightless. I could see all around me without turning my head: 360 degrees of panoramic vision. Looking down, I could see myself on the bed, around which people in white gowns were standing, working on me with great haste. I wandered around for a while (of course I don’t know for how long or where I was) and I found myself near a big tunnel, which held an irresistible attraction for me. At the end of the tunnel, there was a great, white light, which seemed beneficent and felt calming. The calmness of this light contrasted with the agitation down below.
NDE from alcoholic coma.

3075. Regina NDE 4/8/2012. NDE 22707. I remember sitting on my bed and feeling short of breath. I must have passed out because the next thing I knew, I was staring up at the ceiling and floating closer and closer to it. I began to panic, feeling claustrophobic, being so close to the ceiling that I could touch it. In my panic, I managed to turn over. As I looked down, I saw my body lying on the bed, eyes and mouth wide open. My lips were bluish-purple, and overall I looked pale blue. To the left of me there was a bright, sparkling shaft of light shining down from the ceiling right next to the bedroom door. What was unusual about this light was that it was *not* coming through the window. Scared, I knew I needed help but I couldn’t go out the bedroom door, because I didn’t dare to go near that strange light.
NDE due to asthma attack at age 12. Interesting discovery of money she had hidden and lost as well as verified OBE observations far from her body.

3074. Teresita Possible NDE 6/23/2012. Possible NDE 6310. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. I found myself in a place where several things claimed my attention: the place was like a luminous city, but the luminosity was not sunshine. Everything could be seen with great clarity and the temperature was perfect. I felt neither warm nor cold. All the people were wearing white tunics. What struck me was: (this is what I said to myself) ‘LOOK OVER THERE IN THE DISTANCE AT THAT GROUP OF PEOPLE!! THEY ARE CONVERSING WITH SUCH EXTRAORDINARY PEACE AND LOVE!!’
Possible NDE that happened in the hospital from a virus.

3073. Morgan O NDE 6/17/2012. NDE 6317. From Switzerland Suddenly I came out of my physical body, looked at the scene, came closer to see and recognize myself, big shock! Then I popped into a marvelous Light, so bright and yet non- blinding, pure love, all knowing. I had a choice, stay (which you really want) or go back. I thought I’m 19 years old, my parents, brothers, friends will be sad (although I had no idea of what happy or sad meant). I thought that I don’t want to be born again.
NDE due to scuba diving accident at 240 feet deep.

3072. Bill D NDE 6/17/2012. NDE 6316. Then I suddenly was above myself looking on. I stuck with my body as they wheeled me into the emergency room. Then I was in the corner of the room looking down at my body as they worked on it. It was like floating and seeing all. I recall no pain just an interest in what was going on with my body. An injection was given to my body.
NDE at age 15-16 due to hundreds of hornet stings.

3071. Jon S NDE 6/17/2012. NDE 6315. It seemed perfectly normal for me to be there. The room was lit with a soothing bright white light. I felt totally comfortable and natural. There was a man in a white robe with a white beard and long white hair standing in front of the bay windows of my room. He was looking at me and smiling. I could tell he wanted me to look out the window.
NDE at age 7 from being hit by a car.

3070. Bonnie H Probable NDE 6/17/2012. Probable NDE 6314. One minute I was inhaling, and the next minute I was in the top of a fichus tree which was standing in the corner. I felt like I was ‘one with it’; I wasn’t climbing its limbs, I was just part of it. I can’t describe from where or how I heard or sensed what was being told to me. It was more like I was receiving information telepathically from some source that was simply telling me all the answers to everything in the world; things that I never even cared or understood anything about: wars, mathematical equations, solutions. The subjects were beyond vast, they were boundless, and the information about them was flying through my head faster than a millisecond.
Probable NDE due to complication of dental anesthesia.

3069. Belazreg H NDE 6/15/2012. NDE 6304. From France I found myself floating in a universe of nothingness. I was wearing clothes and I felt full of love, a love I cannot describe in words. In my mind, there was no past and no future. I felt very well indeed! I could sense that there was someone, or some kind of being, behind me. This being turned me around without passing in front of me. I began to see myself through her eyes.
NDE from a gas embolism.

3068. Alan McD NDE 12/17/2008. NDE 16041. From South Africa. I saw numerous people all gathered to welcome me into the afterlife. All my beloved were there. It seemed like a welcome home party, but as soon as the doctors got my heart to beat, I was drawn back to the Earthly world. Another time I saw a tree with many books situated around it. Reading what was on the covers, I saw that they contained all the knowledge and mysteries of existence. One very large book seemed to consolidate what was in all the smaller books. When I tried to lift it, I found it was too heavy to carry, and I decided to return later for it. I saw a beautiful pulsating orb of golden light that I took for the Lord Jesus as it emanated perfect peace and love. I had no tunnel or meeting of a being of light, I think because I was continually being resuscitated by the medical team.
Series of NDEs as the doctors resuscitated him several times during a prolonged heart attack.

3067. Frank S NDE 6/9/2012. NDE 6313. From Ireland. In the summer of ’68, I and two of my brothers plus a friend walked into an abandoned building site. On the site, the builder had dug a very deep hole for a generator. It had filled with rainwater. We were looking into the water, trying to see the bottom of the hole, when the embankment at its edge suddenly gave way. The sliding dirt carried me into the water where I struggled and then drowned. I found myself in some strange and unfamiliar place. I went down a tunnel feet first. I felt enveloped in light; I saw 25-30 people, none of whom I knew. My whole life up until that time was replayed back to me, all in color. It was amazing!
NDE due to drowning at age 14.

3066. Lina N Probable NDE 6/9/2012. Probable NDE 6312. I was in a tunnel, and I could see a bright light at the end. I could also see the back of my mother in-law. Before I saw anything, I felt a hand on my chest. I heard, ‘It is not your time.’ The hand pushed me back in to my body.
Probable NDE due to illness with no further details.

3065. Carole M NDE 6/9/2012. NDE 6308. I was hearing a lot of people in the room yelling, ‘Carole get up, come back to us, open your eyes’. I remember I was looking at myself in that bed and saw my body lying there limp as a doll, my arms and legs in a weird position. I kept hearing the voices calling to me; I saw myself sitting up, looking at all these nurses and people in front of me. I remember distinctly seeing this young nurse who had been taking care of me.
NDE due to cardiac arrest as complication of congestive heart failure.

3064. Darla NDE 6/9/2012. Shared NDE 6307. I don’t remember anything else except driving and I was looking at him, thinking to myself, ‘He is so handsome. I can’t believe I didn’t notice how handsome he was.’ This overwhelming feeling of love, being madly in love, swept over me. He was talking to someone. I noticed he was radiating a beautiful white light. The sun was shining, I looked at the windshield. I thought to myself, the sun wasn’t that bright. I looked back at him; he took a deep breath in and out. I reached up to touch him when I heard the shattering of glass. Then I saw my hand with the bone sticking out of my wrist. I looked at the dashboard and it was like slow motion coming closer to me. I looked at the steering wheel and it was doing the same thing. I noticed my son wasn’t sitting there. I then realized what had happened. I was yelling ‘save my son!’
Rare shared NDE due to car crash. Son was killed in crash, yet she saw him radiating a beautiful white light.

3063. Anne N NDE 6/9/2012. NDE 6305/6288. I was suddenly in a dimly-lit room by myself. I noticed, in particular, that this room had a door, which I felt was special in some way. Then I became aware that I was no longer alone. God was there! I felt God as an all-encompassing presence, complete total and unconditional love in its highest form! Even though I saw no figure, there was no doubt in my mind that this was God.
NDE due to complications of lupus and multi-organ failure. Incredible account of healing.

3062. Malena S NDE 6/8/2013. NDE 5418. Born in Peru. I remember being floating over my body while I was going into a tunnel. It was dark. Further into the tunnel, I lost all perception of my body. Now it was as if I was in an ocean of stillness, of calm, of silence, of rest. I was happy, so happy, and I had an indescribable peace. I was in a state of extreme joy when suddenly I hear a very strong VOICE, powerful and omnipotent, that told me that I had to go back.
NDE from a cardiac arrest.

3061. Nicole K Probable NDE 6/4/2012. Probable NDE 5419. From Austria. I saw Heaven and there were white clouds, which didn’t look so much like clouds but more like large puffy cotton balls. It felt wonderful and warm. A very bright light hit my eyes but did not dazzle me. It was so quiet and peaceful. I wanted to stay in that place. I so much did not want to leave that location! I was wearing a summer dress and felt like a happy little girl. Then out of the clouds came a pair of big wonderful hands!
Probable NDE from a bicycle accident

3060. Lawrence H NDE 6/2/2012. NDE 6303. From Canada I felt like I was floating in space (saw vivid colors of the universe like floating gases). Then, I was drawn to a very bright and peaceful light. It felt like I was on an escalator, moving upward without moving a muscle. When I reached the top, the light disappeared and I was in darkness. Immediately a voice called my name. I turned to the right but saw nothing. A voice called my name for the second time. I turned 180 degrees to the left.
NDE due to illness with vital organ failure.

3059. Debra Y NDE 4/8/2012. NDE 22698. As a teacher, I was supervising students coming out two doors of the cafeteria for recess. One child was running very fast when he should have been walking as there were one hundred twenty children filtering into a very small space. I put my hand out to sign to him to slow down and whistled at him as we made eye contact. The next thing I remember was looking down at my still body lying on the concrete from about twenty-five yards away and six yards in the air! I said to myself ‘that’s my body, but I am over here’. I had this feeling of total peace, a peace beyond understanding. My “body” did not exist, my consciousness was totally ethereal. Time did not exist either. I was at perfect peace! When I joined my body again, I still felt a sense by me of perfect peace and I didn’t want to open my eyes to the muffled concerns of the three girls that I observed looking at my body when I had this out of body experience. Finally their voices were heard by my conscious ears. I opened my eyes to pain. I was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. But, the out of body experience certainly changed my spiritual views and I am no longer afraid of death.
NDE due to head injury.

3058. Susan S Probable NDE 5/28/2012. Probable NDE 6298. From Australia I felt completely at peace and like I was ‘coming home’. After a while, I heard the voice of my grandmother. Her words were lovingly spoken into my mind, or rather, their essence and meaning just appeared inside me and I understood them. The words said, ‘you can choose to come with me if you wish, but it is not your time yet’. In my mind or vision, I remembered my mother and my family, and I saw my body lying on the bottom of the pool. This was something I both saw like a vision of looking down on something, (much like a photo) and also something that was just a feeling/emotional vision/knowledge, within me.
Probable NDE due to near drowning at age 11-12.

3057. Paula S NDE 5/28/2012. NDE 6297. While on the gurney, I saw a tunnel of bright light in the distance, and I felt myself floating towards it. At first, as I entered the tunnel, it was dark. As I floated along through the tunnel, it became brighter and brighter. I noticed that all my pain was gone. I felt an incredible peace, love, and a sense of all knowing. I saw my father, my nephew, some in-laws, Grandma, and also a friend that had passed away.
NDE due to acute pancreatitis.

3056. Bill S NDEs 5/28/2012. NDEs 6294. A voice from the corner of the room said to me: ‘He is you friend and will tell you no lies.’ I quickly turned to see the person that just talked to me. I saw no one. In that same instant all the pain left my body and was replaced by a feeling that was so wonderful, it cannot be described. But the message was ‘No Lies’. What did that mean to me? I thought ‘Ask Questions’. So I did! Without the time to contemplate what sort of questions might be asked to a friend from the other side, I started asking questions. And as fast as I asked, he answered.
Multiple NDEs.

3055. Evie D NDE 5/28/2012. NDE 6293. I did not realize what was happening until I was in the ambulance and I saw my own face, and the paramedic watching over me on a bench next to me in the ambulance. When I saw myself, I then looked at the open door of the ambulance where my grandmother was standing, there wasn’t much she could do or say because she speaks Spanish and the paramedics did not.
NDE at age 15 from suicide attempt (antidepressant medication overdose).

3054. William W NDE 5/28/2012. NDE 6292. Then all of a sudden I felt very peaceful and calm, I heard a male inner voice say ‘relax and let go.’ So I did. I stopped fighting and just accepted what was going on. It didn’t matter to me any more if I lived or died because I got the sense that I could never die because I have always existed and I always will. It was quiet and still. I felt like I was in a womb filled with amniotic fluid and pure love. There was no time it just didn’t exist and it didn’t matter.
NDE due to drowning at age 13.

3053. Enocia J NDE 5/19/2012. NDE 6291. From the UK As I was falling, I could see car wheels coming towards my head but they stopped just in time. Then I felt myself out of my body, like I was everywhere at once. I heard a voice in my head saying ‘It’s not happening. It’s all a dream!’ I was back in my body; crying and feeling embarrassed for being in that situation. (It was many years later that I came to understand what it meant to dream the accident.) I came to understand it to mean that life is an opportunity for us to express and experience love. Only love is real.
NDE at age 10.

3052. Joe J NDE 5/19/2012. NDE 6290. We walked through the wall but were not touching the floor. We went above my house and I could see all around and down at my house. They talked to me for short time but don’t remember what they said. Then I remembered my sister was at a Halloween party and all of a sudden, I was there; I saw everything she was doing. After that, I was under my favorite tree in a pasture: a mulberry tree.
NDE at age 4 due to head injury.

3051. Evan B NDE 5/19/2012. NDE 6289. I was sucked into the universe, which from my point of view, was within/ inside me. Everything in the universe was me. I felt every atom, every particle. Consciousness was universal. Even though I was alive, I had been disconnected from the universal consciousness. Something happened to time which I cannot describe.
NDE due to seizure.

3049. Trish R Possible NDE 5/19/2012. Possible NDE 6287. There was an indescribable all-encompassing feeling that God disapproved of my action. There was no shame or feeling of being threatened, just the strong feeling that God was not happy with my attempt at suicide. The grayness of the atmosphere combined with storm- like clouds was remarkable. I didn’t feel threatened by it, though. I just observed it. I was outside this literal gate to heaven. I believe strongly in heaven but not this gate. It may have been more symbolic, I have no idea.
Probable Drug Experience vs. Possible NDE (sometimes you can’t be sure) due to suicide attempt with drugs.

3048. Brian G NDE 5/19/2012. NDE 6286. The most evidentiary thing about my NDE was the out of body experience. I was able to ‘see’ the rescue and a ‘close-up’ view of the water and beach area; most spectacularly, an extremely accurate hawk-eye view of the cove area. Noteworthy, after the fact, I was able to verify the amazing accuracy of my hawk-eye view of the cove via satellite photos, ‘rial (plane or helicopter) photos, higher elevation (perch) photos, various boat vantage point photos and beach level photos. Wow!
NDE due to drowning

3047. Samuel C NDE 5/19/2012. NDE 6284. At this time I felt myself walking through this ‘tunnel’ which seemed to me to be more like an arboretum with light shining through here and there. At the end of this tunnel there seemed to be a brightly lit grassy area. I reached this area, turned and began to walk toward a very bright light.
NDE due to heart attack.

3046. Lisa K NDE 5/19/2012. NDE 6283. I began hearing the staff panicked, rushing around, instruments being dropped on a metal tray and someone saying it was ‘high degree heart block’. Then I noticed I couldn’t see anything, it was as if the whole room was white, it was warm and comforting. I felt as if someone was there with me but I saw nobody. I felt absolute comfort and love there, like I have never felt before.
NDE due complication of procedure to correct atrial fibrillation (heart arrhythmia).

3045. William G NDE 4/30/2011. NDE 16035. Graham says that he went out of this life and journeyed into another country. He described a beautiful road lined with stately trees, strains of music were in the air, and he says that that along the pathway his father came to meet him. He tells of their greeting and conversation, and then of his being torn away, called back to his worn and aching body by the insistent calls of his wife.
1897 NDE from Newspaper clipping.

3044. Cory G NDE 5/13/2012. NDE 6280. My body had floated out of the overhang and I could see it as I looked down on the scene from about 40 feet overhead. Although I realized this was my body, I was unconcerned as I had a deep sense of well-being. Whether this was due to relief from the pain or being in an alternate place I don’t know. I could sense the thoughts and emotions of those below.
NDE due to drowning.

3043. Coleen P Possible NDE 5/13/2012. Possible NDE 6281. I had to look at the mesmerizing layers of moving color, which was amazing. I noticed that the most gorgeous vivid purple, closest to me, fluttered in and out from the sides like butterfly wings almost, but in less exact, more abstract ways. This almost gave me the impression of being in a square hole, but there were no borders or corners. .It was musically coordinated but the swooshing sound scared me some. I saw teal and other colors and there seemed to be a little oval of white or slightly golden light in the distance. The feeling, dimension, synchronicity of everything was way beyond my capacity to dream or to fully describe.
Possible NDE due to multiple illnesses.

3042. Gary M NDE 5/13/2012. NDE 6282. After about 2 seconds I quite suddenly just shot right out of my body. I was traveling at a very high speed into complete darkness, like a universe with no stars. Suddenly I started seeing some stars in the distance. Then, again quite suddenly, (I’ll call them ‘light beings’) two light beings flew directly in front of me and stopped me cold. I could feel that I still had this ‘thrust’ behind me, that if they moved I would move again. I remember quickly looking back, behind me and I saw a sort of umbilical cord of light going down to what appeared to be the world below.
NDE due to auto accident

3041. Julie B NDE 3/31/2012. NDE 22687. I was twenty-one. My husband and I just finished making love, when all of a sudden I found myself in the worst pain I’ve ever been in. I felt like I was going to throw up and have diarrhea all at the same time. I went to bathroom. As the pain increased, I fell forward. My husband caught me and laid me down on the floor. He left to call 911, that’s when all of a sudden I was standing on green grass. I believe I looked forward and saw my dead grandmother and my dead cousin. I felt no more pain; there was a brightness behind them. I felt happy, loved and realized I must have died. I said wait, I can’t be dead I haven’t had any children yet! Then I was back in my body, I awoke still with pain, my husband helped me to the couch and waited for 911. 911 only took a couple of minutes, but by the time they reached me the pain, and other symptoms were gone. I felt one hundred percent better. The paramedics took my blood pressure it was normal. I was normal, just as if nothing ever happened. We went on and had three beautiful girls, all healthy.
NDE due to unknown illness.

3040. Tara S NDE 5/13/2012. NDE 6279. My near death experience and the place I went are ever-present in my consciousness. I was out in the universe with the stars as close as the ceiling in my house. The mood here was the greatest peace, calm, and serenity that I had ever felt. I was seated before the most beautifully lit presence of energy. It seemed to emanate the greatest divine love. It came out, surrounded, and became a part of me and I became a part of this presence. Our consciousness felt as one and yet I still owned my own consciousness. I felt like I was seated and I have racked my brain trying to figure out what I was seated on. My conclusion was there was no couch, no chair, no body, no flesh; it was pure consciousness. I remember whining about how I did not want to return; I did not want to leave the presence. The big thing was that I did not want to come back if I had to be in a wheelchair. I did not want to come back if I could not speak. Ultimately, I did not want to return. But I know the choice was mine.
NDE due to complications of illness and surgery.

3039. Stephane R NDE 5/13/2012. NDE 5406. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Simon. This light was not a blinding light. I myself was a comparable light, partially detached from the other light, I find it difficult to convey this in words. I had a conversation with the light but this was not conducted in words. The light emitted a numberless multitude of voices, of incomparable perfection by earthly standards. These voices, all in chorus, sang a single word, which was Alleluia, and the length of the chanting of this single word, sung a single time, is quite impossible to express by any measure of earthly time.
NDE with light and music.

3038. Julian A NDE 5/9/2012. NDE 5417. From Argentina. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Cuca Suddenly, I feel a sensation like zapping, and, as if somebody had changed the channel, I was in a place poorly lit with light in the background. There were people but I couldn’t precisely tell who they were; it was like a reunion. I was feeling a calm and deep peace, and no pain. I was close to some people but, and I repeat, I didn’t know who they were. Sharply, they took me out of there, and again, as if someone had changed the channel, I see the cardiologist doing the external cardiac massage.
Physician NDE.

3037. Victor D Probable NDE 5/5/2012. Probable NDE 6278. My parents were sitting by my bedside. They asked me something along the lines of, ‘where have you been?’ I replied that I had been with ‘Grandma Lee.’ I told my parents that she had taken care of me the past few days and that I had spent all of my time with her. ‘Grandma Lee’ was my great grandmother who had passed away two years earlier.
Probable NDE at age 5 due to asphyxiation.

3036. Francine W Probable NDE 5/5/2012. Probable NDE 6277. I was eye to eye with a being of light. I was kneeling and communicating with this one without words, telepathically. The thing was I associated this being as the Lord of Love (Christ) and at the same time; it was me talking to myself. What was said to me was ‘Good job, Francine, but now you have to go back and finish what you started.’
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt.

3035. Ned D NDE 5/5/2012. NDE 6275. From South Africa In fact, I felt at peace. I felt as if I was floating, I think I had passed out by this stage. In the corner of the hallway, up at ceiling level is a movement sensor for the alarm system, (though I wasn’t particularly aware of it at the time). The next thing I was aware of was looking down at me from the position of this movement sensor, as if I were inside it looking down at myself. Everything was still, very peaceful and calm, almost ethereal. I remember thinking that if this is dying then it wasn’t so bad at all, in fact it was really rather pleasant.
NDE due to complication of appendicitis.

3034. Jill J NDE 5/5/2012. NDE 6274. I felt a rush of overwhelming love and joy flood me in a warm, honey-like texture. It came in through my eyes, ears, nose and mouth and I became completely peaceful and calm. I was given a choice about going home to heaven or staying. He didn’t actually identify himself, nor say ‘heaven’, but I knew Him and what He meant by heaven. It was a very difficult choice, because I saw colors and lights that I had not seen on earth and felt joy and love as I’ve never known.
NDE due to pericardial effusion (fluid in sac around heart).

3033. Fausto M NDE 5/1/2012. NDE 5398. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. As I had my eyes shut, my idea was to give them a fright, pretending to be dead, and then slowly open my eyes to see who was there. I looked to the right, what a surprise I had. It was a being completely covered in a white sheet, and I asked myself, ‘Who or what is this being?’ Then, slowly turning to the left, I saw another similar being to the first, and I wondered again, ‘Who or what are these beings, what kind of strange prank is this?’ I had no fear, I was calm and not desperate, thinking about what I could see.
NDE from drowning.

3032. Evan D NDE 3/18/2012. NDE 22683. From Australia I then was out of my body floating above the car looking down at myself slumped forward in the driver’s seat, I was bleeding heavily from cuts on my head and for a few moments was transfixed watching myself bleed to death. I felt the greatest peace I have ever known and fell nothing but goodness flowing around me. Although it was pitch black and raining, I could see clearly because there was a bright light behind me (I was twenty-five kilometers from the nearest light source, I was on a country road). Then my whole life flashed before me on fast forward. I saw myself being born then it would pause a little at every major event that had happened to me. It seemed to take only a second or two from start to finish. Then a voice said to me ‘Do you want to live or die.’ By the tone of the voice, it was saying to make up my mind quickly or else I wouldn’t have a choice. I thought about how sad my family would be if I died so I said ‘Live’ and I was instantly back in my body.
NDE due to auto accident.

3031. Billie S NDE 5/1/2012. Second-Person NDE 6268. From Canada ‘Mommy, I was in that place’ she had done a drawing; totally colored black except for floating figures near the top of the page. There was a small building shaped object in the left upper corner. She said she was trying to get home and there were angels around her.
NDE as a very young child as told by her mother.

3030. Vivian M Probable NDE 4/22/2012. Probable NDE 6272. I was aware of floating above my body watching the seizures. Then suddenly my body got up and ran down the road straight toward an oncoming car and I thought, ‘Oh, this is the end’ but it felt as if something or somebody pushed me really hard and the car missed me but I fell into a ditch. A friend caught up with me and I felt myself leave my body again and heard a strange unearthly scream and realized it was coming from me and then I was lifting upward very quickly toward a white light.
Probable NDE due to unknown illicit substance at age 17.

3029. Kathy M Probable NDE 4/22/2012. Probable NDE 6271. From New Zealand Initially I remember floating somewhere up near the ceiling of ‘my’ operating theatre looking down at my own body. I was a small child swathed in sheets and with instrument trays around my body, with a group of nurses and surgeons gathered around my body, looking at it and working on it. I felt no fear, pain, or anything wrong with me. I knew I was in spirit form. I felt happy, light, excited and at peace. I desperately wanted to turn around to face upwards and outwards. I felt I did not know but whom I knew loved me unconditionally.
Probable NDE at age 4 during surgery.

3028. Rose F NDE 4/22/2012. NDE 6269. I started floating through a tunnel, no color on either side of me, towards a white bright light. The feeling was immensely beautiful and peaceful. I’ve never felt anything like it since. As I was floating, I saw myself hovering over my body. My brother and sister-in-law were crying.
NDE at age 13 due to head injury in Italy.

3027. Sheila EP NDE 4/22/2012. NDE 6267. There was a beautiful library type area, where I was able to experience a ‘Life Review’ of my past, present, and future, sort of an extremely efficient fishbowl type with a 360 degree view, very cool. It became clear (telepathically), after that Life Review, that it was just not my time to go. I must have seen that I did not complete whatever mission or task that I had come to my life to accomplish. I’m pretty sure also that I saw loved ones and family whom had passed. It seems as if it would not be beneficial for my mission/task for me to know or remember everything in my review.
NDE at age 16 due to auto accident and broken neck.

3026. Dwight M NDE 4/22/2012. NDE 6265. I was in a tunnel. Everything outside the tunnel was moving very fast. At the time, it seemed to be like looking outside a train window. Melvin Morse, MD has or had two websites; one opens showing a small figure inside a tunnel and my tunnel looked exactly like that. Nothing else I have found accurately describes the tunnel.
NDE at age 17 due to drowning.

3025. Michael P ICU Experience 4/22/2012. ICU 6264. I went, I believe, to HELL. There were giant red dragons. The landscape was dark and eerie. There were people trapped in what looked like circus carts where they transport lions. They were screaming and bleeding. Went into what was a gypsy cart that was blood red in color. It had red streamers from the ceiling. I went outside and ran from the dragons that were chasing me. Then a man riding a gold dragon came by, grabbed me, and took me away from there. Then I was in a room, sitting, talking to my dad who had died in August the same year. He told me to let go of the past and move on with my life.
Good example of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Psychosis. This is NOT an NDE. Typical ICU psychosis experience that is quite frightening and with hallucinatory content. Also events skip around as in dreams which is not typically seen in NDE.

3024. Lisa B Probable NDE 4/22/2012. Probable NDE 6260. In the void, there isn’t any light. It is completely dark but you know while you are there that you are being held by a very loving (seemed like) hand of the creator. There was also a great many souls in there; each of them suspended and silent, although I felt we could communicate if we wanted but we choose not to. It is a very peaceful place. No other place that I’ve ever been has been that calming. I was sent away from the void, not by anyone, but because I began to hear a sound.
Probable NDE associated with severe fever.

3023. Maggy C NDE 4/22/2012. NDE 6259. From Canada. I soon found myself feeling comfortable, peaceful, relaxed. My consciousness was no longer in the water. I was in darkness, but I was not alone or afraid. I had no sense that I might die and I was starting to become curious about where I was.
NDE at age 3 due to drowning

3022. Chris V NDE 4/22/2012. NDE 6258. I felt the calmness come over me. Calm I had never felt in my life. Just utter peace. Time stood still, linear time did not exist. I did not have a thought going through my brain. It was pure calm. At that moment, an intense bright light began to envelope me. I remember how good I felt, with this light and pure calm that was around me. Then as the light began to increase and the calm began to increase, then out of nowhere a voice said ‘you’re not ready yet’.
NDE from physician due to respiratory and cardiac compromise by unknown substance.

3021. Tamara M NDE 4/22/2012. NDE 5415. From Italy. Original in Italian. Suddenly, I was aware of myself and I was getting up from the surgery table. As I was rising, I found myself hovering upward and I turned only to see myself lying on the surgery table. There was copious bleeding on the floor and a rush of nurses and physicians around my body on the table. I could see everything from above. I felt nothing, no emotions or thoughts. I was moving in the air endowed with the conscience of BEING.
NDE from surgery.

3020. Margot Probable NDE 4/20/2012. Probable NDE 5411. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Amy. I didn’t feel that I left my body, rather that I was entering into the deepest part of me. You could call it a tunnel and there was a light at the end. Or more accurately, there was someone who was full of love and radiating light. I was at the bottom of the pit, and unlimited peace and love enveloped me. The fire disappeared, along with the room, my family and the fear. What was left was a presence that loved me. I understood the importance of love. In this place, I saw two images, like two photographs, inside of me. The first was the convent where I was planning to become a nun and the second of the boy who liked me and with whom I was falling in love.
NDE from a Nun.

3019. Hector A Uncle NDE 4/20/2012. Secondhand NDE 5413. From Argentina. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Amy. Each knew who the other was, and he spoke with every one of them without using his voice, telepathically. The being showed him the immensity of this place, where all the people seemed to be in an infinite field filled with colors, trees, people who were reading and singing, and angels that floated above them. There was peace, love and harmony. He traveled with the being without having to walk – it was like floating in the clouds.
Second-hand NDE from his uncle.

3018. Rose M NDE 4/18/2012. NDE 5408. From Cuba. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. Soon my vital signs were fading, then I saw myself dressed in white, with a long robe, and my hands fixed to my sides without movement, my feet pointed on tiptoe, and flying towards a strong and infinite light which shone on my forehead. I was surrounded by a grey metallic tunnel, and grey balls like molecules floating and striking one another, but when these touched me they rebounded and formed new ones, and I continued to the light as if I wanted to leave the tunnel.
NDE from surgery complications.

3017. Anthony S Possible NDE 4/15/2012. Possible NDE 6257. United Kingdom In the dining room apparently superimposed on the curtained off French windows was a disc of golden light, although bright it was not dazzling. It was about four or five feet in diameter, and I was gently, slowly, moving towards it. At a certain time, I realized that the light was drawing me to it, and that I had no control over it. I grew apprehensive, then frightened, and still I was drawn towards the light.
Possible NDE at age 2-3. Shared 68 years later.

3016. Matthew E Probable NDE 4/15/2012. Probable NDE 6256. I was drowning. I didn’t know how to swim at the time. I was drowning and I saw my life flash before my eyes.
Probable NDE due to apparent drowning at age 6.

3015. Sara M NDE 4/15/2012. NDE 6253. After a while, I was out of my body (up) seeing three doctors over me trying to revive me. I looked around me there and saw there was a kind of dark vortex over me. I could also see some beings, little and dark, in 2 or 3 groups. They knew I was there but they didn’t approach. They looked strange so I didn’t want to approach them either, but I didn’t feel really alarmed. I noticed that I was moving slowly in the direction of the vortex and I thought that there was a limit of distance if I wanted to return to my body.
NDE due to anesthetic complication during appendectomy at age 13. NDE occurred in Argentina. Shared 47 years later.

3014. Jack NDE 4/15/2012. NDE 6252. I came out of my body and looked at myself and the next thing I knew, for whatever reason, my dad smacked me in the face. I could see him hit my face while still out of my body.
NDE at age 2 due to a seizure.

3013. Paula H NDE 4/15/2012. NDE 6251. I was at the ceiling floating. I was looking down at my parents; I was shaking hard in my body as if it were trying to revive me. I was surrounded by a bright light and just pleasantly floating. They kept shaking and seemed very upset. I thought ‘I guess I’ll have to go back, they couldn’t take it if I left’ and in that exact instance, I was looking up at them.
NDE at age 12 due to Rheumatic Fever. Shared 47 years later.

3012. Barbara L Possible NDE 4/15/2012. Possible NDE 6250. I became aware of a man in a grey suit standing next to my bed. He was tall, slim and older. It was not frightening in any way. He very simply said, ‘you can come with me now or you can stay’. I knew he meant that I would die if I went with him. It was whatever I chose. I said very quickly, ‘I still have a son in diapers I have to stay’. With no time passing whatsoever, I was back in my body and in extreme pain.
Possible NDE in ICU following surgery.

3011. Soony S NDE 3/9/2010 & 7/28/2012. NDE 16029/6348. From Korea. Non-Western NDEs. I remember that I fell down in the hotel lobby. The next thing I saw was: One: A gentle light beamed down from a star, small, not bright, in the north-east direction. Two: The light covered my body. I was face up, lying down. Three: I was lifted up toward the star. Four: Shortly after, I rose to a sitting position. I was looking down at where my husband and many others were around my body… When I was fifteen, I drowned in the river. Our boat capsized. I got very tired, and then things around me got lighter. Then I was not tired anymore. Then, at some point, I remember seeing the Light lift me through the tunnel of light in standing position. I was slightly tilted, headed up.
Two NDEs described. One at age 15 from drowning, one at age 28 from unconsciousness probably due to environmental stress.

3010. Moises NDE 1/11/2012. NDE 5389. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. Then I entered the light and the cold went away from me, and so did the fear. I felt a great peace and love. It was love and warmth. The light enveloped me completely. I was spoken to telepathically, receiving peace, love, tranquility and at the same time in a voiceless communication. I was still a bit sad, thinking that I wanted to be with my family who loved me so much.
NDE from motorcycle accident

3009. Gary F NDE 4/8/2012. NDE 6249. From the UK I saw a light, which was shining on me, and when I looked behind me, I was floating out of my body. I felt warmth all around me. When I turned around, I saw two spirits there that I did not know. The two spirits looked at me and then one of the two male spirits grabbed my arms and pushed me back into my body.

3008. Lois T NDE 4/8/2012. NDE 6248. Then this beautiful white light with beautiful music came upon me. I stopped struggling and felt a real calmness about me. I never felt such love in my life. I didn’t fear anything.
NDE at age 11 due to drowning. Shared 53 years later.

3007. Victor C Other 4/8/2012. Other 6247. Awareness for me is what is behind the consciousness that comes with the functioning of mind and body. The awareness behind it however is of a much broader, infinite nature. The thoughts that we all have in our consciousness appear to be a constant stream that is continuous and linear in nature. However, upon intense concentration on what is an iota of time between our thoughts, I believe that what I have experienced was a gateway leading out of consciousness and into the hidden spectrum of pure awareness that lies beyond. It was kind of like this; I wasn’t thinking but if I did think, I would become what I was thinking. Therefore, I dared not think about anything because that would have meant that I would have manifested out of total awareness and bliss. Being in this state was beyond bliss, you want to stay there and not do anything to disturb it.
Among the most remarkable and inspiring meditation experience that we have ever received.

3006. Natalie S NDE 4/8/2012. NDE 6246. Originally from Iraq. Having agreed, I moved to another vibrational location where healing would be performed on my physical body. From this location, I could see my physical body in the truck, head propped up by my right hand, elbow resting on the door handle exactly as I’d left it. I could also see my body as an energy matrix. Reading from both those levels simultaneously, I could tell that my right hand was nearly severed at the wrist, my right foot and ankle were badly mangled, and I had a deep wound in my right torso. There was a large hole in my head; I was missing one eye, the frontal sinus, and a portion of my brain. Some energy beings and I worked together, quickly repairing the body, primarily working through the matrix. The injuries weren’t entirely healed, as some were to be of use in situating me for tasks I had agreed to perform or things that I wanted to experience as a whole infinite Self.
Exceptional NDE as a result from a roadside bomb in Iraq. Remarkable account of healing and spiritual wisdom.

3005. Steve L NDE 4/8/2012. NDE 6244. I was transferred to the intensive care unit by the evening of the following day. I was not sure what I had at that point and was in and out of consciousness. I recall that on November 18, two friends were visiting one second and the next, I was in what I thought was a large room. I soon realized I did not have my body, and that I was surrounded by consciousness; ‘pure consciousness’ is the only way I can describe it in human terms. Everything just is total love. There was consciousness that came to me in the form of people I recognized: no bodies, just consciousness. There was a mention of all the lives that I had touched. Today I share my story of how we are loved and safe and that the lives we touch go with us: they mean something. And that when I totally surrendered into the moment, my greatest gift came: a realization that the present is all we have and there is nothing to fear because we are all one with this mysterious, glorious creation called a Universe.
NDE due to necrotizing pancreatitis.

3004. Brenda H NDE 3/4/2012. NDE 22671. My roommate called for the nurse, my blood pressure had risen very, very, high. I remember being placed on another stretcher and taken down this well-lit hall. I remember seeing a lot of nurses and Doctors around my bed, with needles and other devices, which they used. All of a sudden I was lifted out of my body to the corner of the ceiling in the Hospital room, as I looked down, I could see my body lifelessly on the table, with tubes, IVs and I could see the Doctors and Nurses all around me calling my name. Brenda, Brenda! I actually heard and saw them; I actually felt the same, without a body. Suddenly I was drawn through the ceiling; I felt nothing, just went through. I saw a very, very bright tunnel. I moved toward it, closer and closer, all of a sudden, I felt something all over my body. The doctors had injected me with something and I returned to my body on the table, I stayed in ICU for four days.
NDE due to complication following delivery.

3003. Elena E NDE 2/25/2012. NDE 22665. I learned years later from the doctor that I was near death, but he confirmed it was kept from me as I was only twelve. I found myself hovering there watching until I found I had been joined by an older, thin man. He stood behind a podium and seemed to be making notes in a ledger. I could make out none of his thoughts whatsoever unless he chose me to ‘hear’ — otherwise he was a complete enigma to me — yet I knew that he could read all of my thoughts. It was like he had plugged into me. In this same way, he fed some things into my mind that astounded me, especially since I had little religious upbringing and had only recently been baptized into a branch of the Christian Church. He let me know that our experience on Earth is but a flash though it seems very long while we are living it and that it’s a means to evolve. He also communicated that tragedy itself is overly stressed here and is only a kind of vessel for evolving. Then he asked me, ‘Do you have any choice?’ He didn’t say what this choice was, but I knew he was asking if I wanted to live or die.
NDE due to unconsciousness from illness at age 12. Shared 55 years later. OBE observation during NDE verified after experience.

3002. Teresa C Possible NDE 2/18/2010. Possible NDE 16027. I asked my sister, who is twelve years older than I am, just how sick I was when Aunt Mary came and nursed me. My sister gasped and said, ‘you remember that? Well I will tell you, you were fine in the morning, but when mom got home you were so sick, she asked me what I had done to you!’ I was looking after you that day. If something had happened to you, I would never have forgiven myself. So I guess I was very ill.
Possible NDE from an Anglican Minister when she was two years old.

3001. Frances Z NDE 4/1/2012. NDE 6242. Demons appeared around me and, although I was spirit, they were going through the motions of ripping my flesh off. It was intensely painful. As I went deeper and deeper into Hell, I saw many prominent historical figures, and lastly, my father. My father turned to welcome me to Hell, and I was thinking that this was it for me. My life on Earth was over, and I’ve ended up in Hell. Getting out of Hell would not be a possibility.

3000. Dan BC NDE 4/1/2012. Shared NDE 6243. A gentle breeze was suspending me. It was okay, it was fine. I was floating, flying, but it wasn’t right. What was I doing there? I wasn’t afraid. I felt safe, but confused. I looked up and saw James flying down to me just as if we were on a skydive together and he was ‘swooping’ me. His expression was that silly, playful smile he so often had in free fall. He obviously was not confused at all. He knew exactly where he was and what he was doing there. He flew down and stopped in front of me. Still with a smile on his face, he asked, ‘Danny, what are you doing here?’ I answered, ‘I don’t know.’ James said, ‘You’re not supposed to be here, you have to get back down there.’

2999. Laura L NDE 3/31/2012. NDE 6241. A second later, I was in this wonderful light! It was all around me and felt tremendous. Overwhelming, it felt so good that I have no words to describe its wonderfulness!!!! Then, in another second, I was standing on a river made of liquid light! There was grass and landscape but it was all made of this light or had the light in it. It is hard to describe.
NDE due to blood loss after delivery.

2998. Nancy T NDE 3/31/2012. NDE 6240. There was a bridge that led over to a magical, colorful, loving land. It was filled with everything a 13 year old kid would LOVE! It seemed to have colors I’d never seen before, flowers, fun animals, puppies, an amusement park with a Ferris wheel made of candy! Absolutely indescribable.
NDE at age 13 due to head injury.

2997. Janie A Probable NDE 3/31/2012. Probable NDE 6239. The only thing I remember about the NDE was that I felt like I was a part of the northern lights! I was (am) pure positive source energy and I felt the pure power of that!

2996. Mindy T NDE 3/31/2012. NDE 6238. I remembered dying! I was in the sky going somewhere! I remembered the bright white all around me, the lack of pain, the peacefulness I felt and the joy.
NDE due to car accident.

2995. Laura M NDEs 3/31/2012. NDEs 6235. I only know I remember nothing that I saw in my life review; only the memory of having one remains and also of the love! My surroundings were then brought into focus as I became aware of a flower, a magnificent flower. It was rather like a perfect Gerber daisy glowing in brilliant orange hued colors, it was alive, and it loved me! In Amazement, I turned again to Him in wonderment and awe, exclaiming, ‘This flower loves me. I can feel it.’ ‘Everything,’ He said ‘was made in love for you!’

2994. Jared NDE 3/31/2012. NDE 6234. I remember seeing me lying at the bottom of the pool and I begin to hover or float. My mother was screaming. Someone jumped into the pool and pulled me out. Then it was like a sudden rush of something pushed me back into body and that was it.
NDE at age 13 due to drowning.

2993. Jenneane E NDE 3/31/2012. NDE 6233. I am not sure if my breathing or heart stopped but my blood pressure dropped and I passed out. The colors in the room began to slowly fade to black and white. I had never seen the world in black and white before and I felt like it was surreal. I had a flashback as though I was watching a war movie and I saw a soldier getting wounded and dying and a bright light came and wiped out the whole image. Then I realized that it was I, dying now. I guess I had a flashback of my previous life and I thought it was strange that I had been a man and a soldier. I have always had a great fear of war and death. The black and white images reversed and the light became dark and the dark became bright and then the powerful bright light got stronger and stronger. I felt the bright light pass through my body and it was the most powerful unconditional love.
NDE due to complication of childbirth.

2992. Preston P Probable NDE 1/21/2012. Probable NDE 22663. I was very in touch with my being out of my body (skin) and free to go with my thoughts. The walls were the only obstacle and I was ready to go beyond and was aware of the feelings and thoughts and not at the table where my body was laying. Everything was present, I wasn’t looking back or around I was seeing all at once.
Probable NDE due to allergic reaction to penicillin shot.

2991. Ricardo H NDE 3/31/2012. NDE 5403. From Mexico I was no longer aware of my surroundings and felt no pain. I didn’t know what happened but I started seeing scenes from my life; like snapshots of my loved ones, friends and acquaintances. It wasn’t like a film. I saw still images, one after another of my loved ones, etc.; just like photographs. They all appeared just as I was used to seeing them; playing, working, resting, etc. I had a strange feeling of desperation, oppression, and suffocation while I witnessed all these scenes.
NDE from motorcycle accident.

2990. Garth P Probable NDE 2/15/2013. Probable NDE 16026. When I passed through the veil this time, the pain stopped. My head was bent and as I raised it, I beheld my angel wife. She was some distance from me and was on one knee picking flowers. She never spoke, but raised her head and smiled. My joy was unbounded. Her beauty filled the space. The body was not the one we buried, but the form and face of the young woman on the day we married. She was so beautiful. I started to stand with full intentions of going to her, but was again roughly jerked back though the veil and held by some unknown force. It prevented my re-entering the world of peace and beauty, but I was allowed to peer through the veil. My wife rose, smiled, and waved. She and the veil disappeared.

2989. Winnie J NDE 3/24/2012. NDE 6231. I suddenly found myself flying in a dark night sky. The stars were everywhere, beautiful, shining all around me. I was aware of a cool breeze against me as I moved. I seemed to be aware of a being beside me on my right, perhaps holding me at the elbow and another at my left. I felt trusting and never turned to look at them. I quickly moved along and soon found myself above a courtyard with pillars. What impressed me most was that the floor was beautiful. It was white, like a crystal of some kind, dazzling and shimmering. I began to descend slowly, and then I noticed many people moving quickly in one direction like they were hurrying to a meeting. They all seemed to be wearing white, but were wearing colors too.
NDE due to faint followed by head injury.

2988. Margaret H Probable NDE 3/24/2012. Probable NDE 6229. From Australia I was in this place, not a tunnel but going towards the most glorious golden, white light. I arrived into it. It was so encompassing. It was total security and love. I didn’t, and still don’t, really have words for it. Everything was just perfect contentment and calm.
Probable NDE at age 11 associated with measles. Shared 50 years later.

2987. Herman V NDE 3/24/2012. NDE 6227. From Canada I asked the being what the tiny fast moving lights were and he replied that they were all spirits and that they were all going places. I also realized that I had left everything behind, that is all physical things, and that I was now completely pain free. An overwhelming feeling of peace and love, that cannot be described using language, enveloped me. There was no life review, no judgment, no trinity, no choirs of angels, no deceased friends or relatives, just a powerful feeling that I was loved and that I had returned to a state of spirit and that I was now ‘home’. It came with a very strong sense of being welcomed back to the place from which I had come.
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

2986. Chuck H NDE 3/24/2012. NDE 6222. I was hit by a car while I was driving a motorcycle. I saw my life history. I seemed to travel into the future. I witnessed my parents grieving at my funeral. Then I was moving toward a light in the darkness. I experienced a great peace. Suddenly I was over my body. I could see myself crumpled on the concrete surrounded by several people. I then awoke and stated, ‘I am alive.’ I don’t remember saying that but that it’s what the woman who hit me told me. I remember being upset that I had returned.
NDE due to motorcycle accident.

2985. Ana Probable NDE 3/4/2012. Probable NDE 5402. From Uruguay. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. I had the sensation of weightlessness and floating in spirals, of leaving my body and feeling in a body-free state. I was surrounded by endless grey smoke. Wherever I looked, I saw a kind of gaseous dense smoke. It was like swimming in a liquid gas or a smoky liquid. I felt disconcerted not to know where I was or what I was doing there. I was moving forward or sideways but wherever I looked there was nothing other than that mass of smoke. There was no noise, no other presence, nothing. It was a nothing in which I floated, and these surroundings went on and on however much I moved around or at least had the feeling of doing so.
Probable NDE vs. Possible drug experience

2984. Dagoberto O NDE 3/19/2012. NDE 5396. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. I took hold of the neck of the light bulb which gave me a powerful electric shock and threw me against a wall 16 feet away. In the moments after the shock, I felt that I was walking through a dark tunnel. Suddenly I found myself walking through a very beautiful park where there were lovely flowers, some shrubs and trees of a gorgeous green color, and the sky was a glorious blue. At the far end of the path I was following, there was a brilliant light. Everything was exceptionally beautiful.

Then I decided to awake.

2982. Veronica M NDE 3/18/2012. NDE 6221. From Canada Suddenly, my horse bolted directly toward the fence and I could not control him. I have no memory of what followed. My brother was onsite throughout the entire event and observed that I had fallen out of the saddle, with my right foot still in the stirrup, and I was dragged along the fence line with my head hitting the ground and fence as the horse ran at full speed. Eventually my foot released and I was dropped to the ground. When my brother reached me, I was in full-blown generalized grand mal seizure, vomiting, and my eyes were clicking back into the recesses of my eye sockets. The next thing that I recall is levitating from a lying position into a conical tunnel in an upward direction toward a beautiful, warm, very, very bright white light. It beckoned me strongly, and I really wanted to go. Simultaneously, I knew that I was in the ambulance and lying on the right side of the vehicle.
NDE due to head injury at age 12.

2981. Catherine H FDE 3/4/2012. FDE 6219. In that moment, I saw my life in front of my eyes, all the things and ages to the present. I saw my life in great detail. I saw my life from birth to my given age. All the events that took place, all the things that I had long forgotten.
Fear-death experience with detailed life review.

2980. John S NDE 1/18/2012. NDE 22655. At that moment I wanted to, but had no opportunity to warn my Mother for the accident that was to take place. I instantly put my hands on the dash board, the next thing was silence, a bright light, and I was standing on the side walk noticing the car I was just in was moving still towards the side walk. I was in a serene state of awareness, completeness and everything seemed to move slowly around me. I noticed my body was partly out of the vehicle front window. I also noticed a lot of blood on the window itself that was all smashed up. There were people running towards the vehicle but in slow motion and then I felt a tug on my arm and it was my old best friend from young childhood smiling at me. I just felt an aw-feeling and she told me everything would be all right and it was time for me to go back and she said she loved me. This girl who tugged on my arm was named Ruthy, who was killed several years back in an accident when she moved from Michigan. At that moment I felt an enormous pain seemingly everywhere and pulled myself back into the vehicle.
NDE at age 11 due to car accident.

2979. Sigrid Possible NDEs 3/14/2012. Possible NDE 5404. From Switzerland. During my out of body experience, I was undergoing a surgery on my tonsils. I heard everything but; I could not defend myself against someone, I could not move, nor could I make myself understood. I felt panic and fear. Suddenly I saw myself sitting in a big chair, looking down from the ceiling and I heard everything that was said during my surgery. The next day, during hospital rounds, I told people, including my parents, about this event but nobody believed me.
Possible NDE at the dentist.

2978. Sharon G NDE 3/11/2012. NDE 6215. From Canada I was floating above the operating table, watching/listening to the staff. Two physicians were arguing about how to extract the baby who had become stuck in the birth canal. I felt calm, rested, and removed from the panic below. I watched them rush the baby out of the operating room and I followed above the baby the short way to the special care nursery where she started to cry. I knew she would live and floated a bit before I felt drawn backwards and down to my body again. My vision seemed to be 360 degrees (not front, back or side but all) and I went thru the wall (not out of the door) with no feeling of passage or movement. A few days later a resident sat with me and listened. He had been in the operating room and said that the events I described were accurate. He said he could not explain how I ‘witnessed’ these events.
NDE due to bleeding after c’sarian section delivery.

2977. Majenta S Probable NDE 2/25/2012. Probable NDE 6217. I could feel them as if they were hitting me; shouting that I was going the wrong way. It kept going as if it were never going to stop. Then, it suddenly did. Everything got quiet and peaceful. It was warm and bright. I know my discussion with this being had everything to do with my decision. I just knew I was not done living yet. I had not experienced what I need to, or achieved what I need to. I was talking to someone, but I can’t remember whom, where, or what about; but we knew everything and the meaning of life.
Probable NDE vs. possible drug experience at age 17.

2976. Jane E NDE 3/11/2012. NDE 6214. I did not feel any pain, discomfort, nothing. I just remember seeing plants that were at the bottom of the lake and this beautiful light coming from the top down and I had a very unusual feeling of absolute peace and harmony. It was a very pleasant experience. I do not remember being pulled from the lake, but I remember that I was placed on a blanket and I had this out of body strange experience, like it was two of me (one that was fine and one was looking down on the other me).
NDE due to drowning at age 5 in Slovak.

2975. Raina K NDE 3/4/2012. NDE 5401. From Sweden. Original in Swedish, translated into English by Maria. The life review was mostly of my childhood. I saw myself as the girl and the teenager and a little bit of myself as an adult. I saw pictures during different periods of my life and I learned that life is a movie where I am on stage, and that it’s me who decides how my movie is going to go and who gets to play a part of it. Today I understand myself a lot better, and I understand that I am the one that chooses what the movie is about every day.
NDE with an instructive life review.

2974. Shea B NDE 3/4/2012. NDE 6213. It was quiet and peaceful. I didn’t feel any pain, just a quiet peaceful feeling. I felt like I was somewhere outside my body. I told myself ‘Well I guess I am dying.’ I wasn’t emotional about it. Then I remembered my year old son. I didn’t want to die. I began to pray. I told God I couldn’t die because I had a baby to raise. I still wasn’t really emotional. I was just explaining why I couldn’t die yet. I only said it a couple of times. ‘I have a baby. I can’t die yet.’
NDE due to car accident.

2973. Larry P NDE 3/4/2012. NDE 6211. From Canada I recall floating upwards, to the ceiling and seeing everything in the room in proper perspective from above. I could identify myself on the operating table. I continued to float upwards, towards a bright light, white and warm. I had a very good, exceptionally loving feeling. It was most tempting to keep going through the tunnel. But, there was a diaphanous curtain that I would have to part to keep going, and once I passed through that, I knew that I could not go back. I could not return to my life. As tempting as it was to go to the white light, I thought of my wife, and my kids, and I chose to return. That’s it! I awoke in recovery and I was told all went well and soon I was back in my ward.
NDE during surgery.

2972. Ron B Probable NDE 3/4/2012. Probable NDE 6208. When I got angry I was taken away from seeing my wife to that dark place again. I could hear my thoughts; my mouth didn’t need to talk. I began to see what looked like smoke and reddish orange color. I was taken closer until I could see it was fire in the form of a lake! I was terrified.
Probable NDE due to accident. Hellish imagery.

2971. Bonnie Z NDE 3/3/2012. NDE 32085. I sort of blacked out, and suddenly there was no pain and I wasn’t breathing or crying or gasping for air anymore. I noticed that I didn’t even have the need to breathe. I felt sexless and ageless, and eternal. I felt overwhelming comfort and warmth all around me. I felt like I was floating, and my vision was a little weird because I could see all around me, and below and above me as well all at the same time. I saw the ceiling above me and it seemed to be glowing and expanding and opening up somehow to infinite space. And I saw my body below me, and all my blood. There was about two pints of it covering my arm and my floor. But I wasn’t afraid of what I saw. I felt no negative emotions. I knew it was I but I didn’t care – the peace I felt was so much better than the turmoil I would return to if I went back to my body. I floated continuously up, but just before I entered the light I felt like I should be in my body and so I started falling slowly and trying to breathe again.
NDE at age 13 due to self-inflicted cut and blood loss.

2970. Dani S NDE 12/30/2011. NDE 22646. I was struck in the head with a pistol, the blow immediately forced me to the ground. There I was straddled and continuously struck in the head with the pistol, a small guitar and other items. The last item I was aware of in my body to hit me was the pistol, his first weapon. After a few strikes, my mind went to a dark place with a huge light at the end, almost like a tunnel. The next thing I knew I was above my body, at ceiling height, and I could see him on top of me beating me, switching items when they got too bloody and slippery to grip. I didn’t feel any pain or sense of panic during my out of body experience. I remember having thoughts like ‘What is he doing now?’ and ‘Am I going to be ok?’ I felt strangely happy, like if I had been in my physical form I would have a smile on my face. I felt no fear, pain, or concern with anything else. I remember my voice saying ‘When is he going to stop?’ while looking at my lifeless body. I saw him kicking me in the face, my hands were still protecting my face but my inner self had let go of the fight. My eyes were closed and I was totally unconscious.
NDE from boyfriend’s criminal attack.

2969. Cherie B NDE 3/1/2012. NDE 5457. I was made aware that my body would heal and that it was safe for me to return to my body. It was clarified that we are not alone. We are always surrounded by loving beings when we cross over and even now in this existing dimension. I know that we are always safe and protected. And I know that no matter what our circumstances, who we are perceived as or judged to be by the world, or what we have done in this lifetime, that we are all pure love. It’s as simple as that. And we are all here to remind each other of our pure essence and what we can create in this three dimensional world through love and co-creating. I learned that we are all one in the same sharing different experiences.
Stunningly transcendent NDE due to very prolonged cardiac arrest.

2968. Gary C NDE 3/1/2012. NDE 5379. From Easter Island. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Maria. I told my wife that I had been with her deceased mother in an amazingly white corridor; she was a Rapa Nui (a native Polynesian inhabitant of Easter Island, the eastern most part of Polynesian culture. The Rapa Nui people make up 60% of Easter Island’s population). She died from thrombosis that had kept her in bed for 2 years and my wife and I had looked after her. She was there with me, in that shining corridor and told me in Rapa Nui ‘Kaoho Koe’ which means ‘to return’, ‘follow your path’. She was very tall and wearing a white dress.
NDE from scooter accident.

2967. Fernando S NDE 2/27/2012. NDE 5399. From Brazil. Original in Portuguese, translated to English by George. I was projected through the car windshield and then I became aware that I was floating, entirely lucid but out of my body and completely conscious of what was going on. There was some other beings but I didn’t know who they were. They were invisible to me but I could feel their presence. The feeling of peace was huge and transcendental as I never felt until now. No signs of problems, anxiety or anguish. All my problems were gone. The surrounding environment was in a rose-whitish tone and I could feel the presence of spirits or beings highly developed. That environment of peace and serenity worked as a profound magnetic field and I was attracted to it. I started moving towards it and I knew intuitively, or something was telling me, that if I was to cross that frontier I would not be able to return. There was a barrier, putting a limit on life and death, and it was quite clear. At that moment, a voice in my mind was telling me that I should return because my objective in life was still pending. There was a lot to do yet.
NDE from a car accident.

2966. Carmine I NDE 2/27/2012. NDE 5395. From Italy. Original in Italian, translated to English by Maurizio. A very large light appeared and I felt a state of absolute well-being. The more I approached the light, the more I knew that my place was with her. When I reached behind me, it opened a beautiful vision. There were thousands of lights, the same as I was (I was a light) and all of them moving with harmony. I was happy because I knew that my place was with them. Then suddenly I returned all the way back at breakneck speed, and found myself lying on the operating table.
NDE from criminal attack.

2965. Isabel R NDE 2/25/2012. NDE 6205. The voice reminded me of the vision I had had of my husband and son in funeral clothes. He said if I didn’t go back to them, I would disrupt some ‘plan’. The plan would be repaired and everything would eventually be ok, so I could go ahead if I wanted. The consequences of my untimely demise would be that my husband and son would suffer in ways I could not imagine and I would know that these sufferings were because of my selfish decision not to go back. I would know this throughout eternity. It would not be a huge sadness for me to bear, more like a prick of conscience that could never be totally healed. No big deal, unless you consider how long eternity is.
Exceptional NDE due to ruptured fallopian tube and internal bleeding.

2964. Cindy B NDE 2/25/2012. NDE 6207. I was having a seizure. All of a sudden, I was pulled through a dark tunnel, which started becoming filled with a glowing blue light. I was not in my body. Although I felt like I was moving very quickly, I was able to see shadowy figures lining the sides of the tunnel, and I heard them talking, saying, ‘Why is she here now?’ ‘What’s she doing here?’ ‘She’s not supposed to be here.’ I heard all of them at the same time, and I became nervous, thinking I wasn’t supposed to be there, but I was being pulled and couldn’t stop myself.
NDE due to grand mal seizure.

2963. Maia S NDE 2/25/2012. NDE 6206. From the UK As I shut my eyes I was immediately above my own body and could see the whole of the labor room below me as if I was watching a scene of a play unfold. At that point, I was aware that there was no sense of pain or pleasure or even movement within my body, it was an unnaturally calm, still and complete weightlessness that I cannot liken to anything I’ve ever felt before or since. The feeling seemed to be a split second in time then the feeling of my own steady breathing came back and I opened my eyes to find myself back within my body.
NDE due to complication of epidural anesthesia during delivery.

2962. Vanessa W Probable NDE 2/25/2012. Probable NDE 6204. The best part of this entire experience was the love. I’ve never felt love like that. It wasn’t even describable in our English language. The best way I can describe it was like when you get into a bath and the water seeps into you warming every part of you. Well, replace the water with love. As I was floating in ‘space’, and absorbing all this love, I could see that I was carried very slowly toward a part of a triangle. It looked like these planes/grid lines were going closer and closer together. I wondered what it was, but I was so at peace and felt so much love, that I couldn’t help but just bathe in it.
Probable NDE at age 15

2961. Mary B Probable NDE 11/19/2011. Probable NDE 22643. From Canada I was sitting down, leaning over, with my arms on the table and my head resting in my arms. Suddenly I could see my upper body rise and sit upright. It was dark, and very still, with nothing around me except my deceased mother, on the other side of an invincible fence. She couldn’t find my deceased brother and was waiting for me to go to her side of the fence so we can look for him together. Then I was awaken by the banging on my door and taken to the hospital.
Probable NDE due to accidental overdose of pills and alcohol.

2960. James N NDE 2/19/2012. NDE 6200. I went into a tunnel and was met by dead friends and relatives. I was taken to see a worm working controls of big cylinders, that had every animal and peoples you could think of, and they were going down the cylinders from adults to babies. There were fish also. I remember seeing all kinds of fish. As I was walking toward the worm, I heard a voice say, ‘you go back and be a better man.’ I felt so warm and loved I didn’t want to go back.
NDE following accident.

2959. Tom Probable NDE 2/19/2012. Probable NDE 6199. From Sweden The next thing I remember is the feeling of relief, like all the burden was lifted off my shoulders and all my worries were gone. This was the most incredible feeling. I was in a softy dark, peaceful and beautiful place, walking with someone I knew very well and trusted. It was like I was home and knew the purpose of everything and especially the purpose of my life. I don’t know how long I was there or who I was talking to but I think we discussed my life and that we agreed on something.
Probable NDE due to illness at age 10.

2958. Janie N Probable NDE 2/19/2012. Probable NDE 6198. The next thing I recall was floating from the ground into the air. The sky was very blue. It was completely silent and my body did not feel any flow of air around me or feel like I was projected forward in any way. I was simply floating towards the sky. I recall the feeling that I could travel anywhere and see anything. I looked around me. I saw the sky and what appeared to be castles and green valleys. I felt light, and comfortable. There continued to be no sound and there was no sense of warmth or cold; just complete comfort. At one point, I knew that I could keep going and there was no anxiety in that idea.
Probable NDE due to use of medications.

2957. Earl M NDE 2/19/2012. NDE 6197. Once again, my heart stopped, this time for about 20 minutes. There was no ‘bright light’, but rather diffuse light emanating from everywhere. I was aware that I was surrounded by my ancestors, many of whom I’d never met. They were all speaking at once, not in voices, but rather directly to me, to my mind. I knew some of them were not speaking a language I understood, and yet I knew what they were saying. I understood what was being asked without ever being asked.
NDE due to prolonged cardiac arrest.

2956. Hanriette NDE 2/13/2012. NDE 6033. From Brazil. Original in Portuguese, translated to English by George. At that moment, I saw, like in an old movie going backwards, clear images of my life from being an adult to my childhood. I found myself in the middle of a grayish white mist and I noticed three beings dressed in white like angels, a woman to my left, a man in front of me and another man to my right. All of them had very dark hair. The woman had long hair to her shoulders and the men’s hair was cut at the height of their ears. I couldn’t see their faces because they were made of a very bright white light. They were communicating with me not through their mouths but by means of some kind of telepathy.
NDE from going unconscious.

2955. Riki Possible NDE 6/1/2008. Possible NDE 16019. There was a thick row of tall sunflowers and standing behind looking over them were these beings of light. They were shaped like a human body, but there were no features, just light and all around the edges, brighter light radiating out. I knew who they were. God, Jesus and angels. I knew they were expecting me, they knew I was coming and were waiting for me. They didn’t say anything to me, I just knew these things without any doubt, they were projecting thoughts and feelings to me, and I could feel what they were trying to express to me. I felt the most wonderful love pouring into me. I saw myself fall to my knees and begin just sobbing from the relief and joy of it, it was so wonderful.
Possible NDE from sleep apnea.

2954. Rose NDE 4/17/2008. NDE 16018. From the UK It was 1979 in about the spring. I was fourteen and there was a craze at my school of inducing fainting to each other. When I look back I shake my head and wonder why! I was one of the volunteers for this. It was in my Classroom during a morning break. My friends all gathered round and I had to breathe very deep and very fast about twenty times. Then one of them put her arms around me from behind and squeezed just around my chest/waist tightly while I held my breath. Next thing, the consciousness disappears away. I was aware of being laid to the ground. Then wham, I’m up in the ceiling looking down on myself near the door. And I can see everyone looking at me and chattering about me being out cold and giggling. It was a very strange and very positive feeling, I recall. I liked being up there and seeing the scene below. I was aware it was happening. I wanted to float higher and out around. Next thing I remember is sort of being sucked back and coming round.
NDE from childhood game of inducing unconsciousness. Became unconscious, and OBE over body.

2953. Lacy NDE 2/11/2012. NDE 6196. The first thing I noticed was that I was warm and at peace. I was wearing a thin, white, strapless sundress. I was swinging on a tree-swing that was in a meadow full of tall, golden grass. Around me was a thick green forest full of different trees. Everything had a golden haze, like you might see in the early morning in the woods; all misty and warm. Nothing I’ve ever seen before. As I was swinging, I was smiling and laughing. On my left was a white tiger and the right, a white wolf. They just lay there, enjoying the moment. Then I woke up in the middle of the operation.
NDE at age 5 during surgery due to complication during surgery.

2952. Laura B NDE 2/11/2012. NDE 6195. I was floating above the playground. Everything was dreamy here and in slow motion. There was a girl with two blonde braids that were whipping about as she turned over and over in the air, falling off the slide. I was purely fascinated with this girl. I wasn’t upset. I was feeling really good to be floating above. I remember the pine trees and the falling girl. I realized that the falling girl was me. I felt no worry, pain, or fear; just detached, slightly confused, and most of all, thrilled to be up in the air.
NDE at age 7 from passing out on top of a slide and falling.

2951. George E NDE 2/11/2012. NDE 6192. From Australia. In a matter of a couple of seconds, my body just snapped and I lost consciousness. The next moment, I was being gently channeled towards an incredibly bright, white light. The light had a brilliance that didn’t hurt my eyes. Its attraction was so powerful, like a huge magnet that was the size of the entire Universe. It was totally irresistible. I was hovering and able to move in any direction that I wanted to move my body (or my mind, I should say) and it seemed to me that I was under no restriction; that I could fly away anywhere I wished to throughout that dimension. My mind was at my will and my will was my mind. I was completely aware that I was within the boundaries of what true life really is – a spiritual, mindful, non-dimensional world at the disposal of my consciousness.
NDE due to medication reaction at age 12. Shared 50 years later.

2950. Kaycee Probable NDE 2/11/2012. Probable NDE 6188. During sleep, I experienced a dream of feeling entirely encircled within a warm embrace, beyond anything possible on this earth. I did not want it to stop. I saw my father and some people behind him, who I think were my sister and grandmother. All had passed over. A voice I didn’t recognize said, ‘If you want to go back, blow’. I guess I decided to go back, so I went to blow but to do so, I had to draw breath first (to be able to blow).
Probable NDE due to sleep apnea. Interesting information during experience that may have saved her life.

2949. Paulina D Probable NDE 2/11/2012. Probable NDE 6187. My body may have been lying there on the operating table, but I was up in the corner ceiling of the operating room, looking down on my body. It did not feel as if my body were with me, just my mind and eyes. I had no feeling of fear, just a complete acceptance; oh, so this is how it ends.
Probable NDE due to severe illness during surgery.

2948. Ryan G NDE 1/29/2012. NDE 6186. My surroundings consisted of an almost perfect sight of everything in the veil of black nothing. I was in a void. I noticed that my ability of sight was different. I can see everywhere without even needing to turn my head. I was like an owl, except I can see through anything I can imagine as real. I knew all of this without even seeing anything. Suddenly, the pin prick of light starts shining. Creating the tunnel vision effect that accompanies almost all near death experiences. This light was alive. It was breathing, and it had the heartbeat of a million souls.
NDE due to fall at age 5.

2947. Trisha S NDE 1/29/2012. NDE 6184. Disappointment fills my very soul. I don’t want to go; I want to stay here. I feel that this is my home. This is where I belong. I want to continue living here where I’m not weighed down by physicality, worries, or anything. I want to be like they are, all light and music. ‘Later,’ it says; ‘later, we promise.’ I’m devastated. I don’t want to go back. I want to stay in this place of love. ‘No, please. I want to stay.’
NDE due to bicycle accident.

2946. Roy B Possible NDE 1/29/2012. Possible NDE 6183. From the UK I was floating, weightless, surrounded by light; I have heard this referred to as a tunnel. Although it had those characteristics, the walls themselves were pure light. I was then in an unenclosed landscape of golden light, and was pleasantly surprised to see people passing by who I had known during my younger years. Some were old friends, others were people I had argued and fallen out with, yet now there was no enmity. I was then overcome with emotion as my departed mother came into view, smiling. As I moved towards her, I was hoping to speak with her, yet felt myself falling backwards.
Possible NDE during sleep. Woke up gasping for air.

2945. William E NDE 1/29/2012. NDE 6182. The next thing I remember was being in place of the most comfortable warmth, a bright warmth, and peace one could ever imagine. I had no fear whatsoever and I knew I was somewhere far from where I should be but I did not care. This was the place where no harm could ever come to me. It was perfect warmth, peace and comfort, and I loved it. I remember thinking that I was somewhere special and I did not want to go back to where I’d come from. Then I remember starting to wake up and I was mad because I wanted to stay where I was. I did not want to come back to this world.
NDE due to cardiac arrest following cocaine use.

2944. Steve N NDE 1/29/2012. NDE 6181. There was a spinning white light, and a throbbing noise, going ‘wob, wob, wob…’ at intervals of about one second, or slightly less. It consisted of white and black spirals, like a hypnotist’s wheel. It may have been a spinning tunnel. Then, I was back in my body and awoke.
NDE due to dental anesthetic complication at age 5. Experience shared 52 years after it happened. Bellows described are an archaic from of resuscitation.

2943. Ronald A NDE 1/29/2012. NDE 6179. Then I was walking down a dirt path toward a bright light. There were very tall green trees lining the path. It felt so warm and there was such a good feeling all around me. I could hear birds in the trees singing.
NDE due to pulmonary embolus. NDE due to stroke, brain hemorrhage and seizure. Shared about one month after the experience happened.

2942. Yolanda W NDE 4/4/2008. NDE 16017. I am thirty three years old now. I was twenty three years old when I had my experience. I had pneumonia and it was killing me. It was November that year, three days after Halloween. I went to the emergency room in Tennessee. When I got there, I could not breathe. They said I shouldn’t have been able to walk through the doors because my lungs were so full. They said I should have been dead. I start to lose consciousness, going in and out. I remember I told my husband to call my mom. She was at church. I told him the number, which is odd because I had never called the church before. But I knew the number as if I called it all the time. I lost conscious. I came back to for a moment. My mom was there. She told me they were hooking me up to a breathing machine. All I could do was shaking my head ‘no.’ I did not want that and I lost conscious again. The next thing I remember is being in the dark. I thought I was alone but I heard a voice. It was kind, comforting and loving. It was as if it wrapped its arms around me. It told me that I was ok; everything was going to be all right. It never told me if I was going to live or die. I was at peace, comfortable, and happier than I ever been. Finally, I felt safe for once in my whole life. I told it I was not scared anymore and was ready and all right knowing I’d never see my babies again. I knew they would be taken care of and watched over. I was ready to go. Let me also say I have tried to kill myself I have wanted to die for a long time, so you understand why I was ready. The next thing I knew, I woke up. I opened my eyes, looked around, and started to cry. I was not sure why, maybe because I was happy, or maybe because of the loss of feeling safe and at pure peace. It was four days later. I had been unconscious for four days. I lived, and that was the most wonderful experience I have ever lived in my whole life so far.
Short NDE. No link because this is all there is.

2941. Jeter C NDE 10/10/2011. NDE 22626. Coming home from work at 12 midnight. I hit a deer on my motorcycle at fifteen miles per hour. I went to a place that looked like a theater. On the screen appeared a walkway that went to the left. Could not see where it went. I felt Jesus was sitting to my right. Felt totally accepted. This place knew everything about me. Every thought I ever had. No words were needed. Every thought was known. Heavenly feeling is the only word I could find to describe this space. Fluffy red surroundings I call a space.

NDE due to motorcycled accident involving striking a deer.

2940. Carmen J NDE 1/21/2012. NDE 6176. I thought it was fascinating. I observed from the ceiling. I was being pulled further and further away. I just kept looking at the frantic person holding the rag doll that kept slipping through his hands as it spewed the rivers of brown on the body. I was whirling up, up, up. Then, from far away, I heard this desperate yelling noise. I didn’t recognize the sound. As I focused on the sound, I was drawn to the sound until I got close enough to it, to distinguish it.
NDE due to apparent allergic reaction, with unconsciousness.

2939. Dahlia Y NDEs 1/21/2012. NDEs 6175. I wanted to check on my dog Walker, who was buried in our yard, so I flew to our house. I couldn’t see him but I could feel him and I wanted to know he was okay. I flew over the roof to the front of the house and saw my best friend and her brothers on their bikes they were going to where my body was so I went to the lake. I could hear everything, fish jumping, ducks swimming and quacking, but I could still hear the sirens and they made me anxious and worried.
NDEs at age 6 due to bicycle accident. Experience shared at age 11, which is among the youngest children that has ever shared directly with NDERF.

2938. Karyn E FDE 1/21/2012. FDE 6174. I knew when the tire blew while I was on the Interstate that I was going to lose control of the car. I definitely heard a female voice say, ‘there is nothing you can do,’ and I felt the most serene feeling of total peace and absolutely no fear. I was knocked out after the first of four rolls. I did not see anyone or experience a tunnel but I did feel complete knowing and bliss. It was a feeling that honestly I cannot describe. I felt no fears, worries, or feelings of loss and I saw a white light surround me.
Fear-death experience due to auto accident.

2937. Ross F NDE 1/21/2012. NDE 6172. From Canada I asked what the purpose of human life in the universe was. Unfortunately I cannot remember the answer, but it seemed like an oversimplification, so I asked a follow-up question, ‘if that is all there is to it why are scientists putting in so much time, effort and money into trying to figure it out?’ The answer was also simple which I do remember. He said, ‘Scientists like to make things complicated.’
NDE due to pulmonary embolus.

2936. Jeanette F NDE 1/21/2012. NDE 6171. From the UK The next thing I knew I could see below me, sort of looking from the sky downwards at a long wooden table with people discussing me sitting round it. I don’t remember faces but I do remember purple cloaks. They were discussing whether or not I should live. I was only 15 and a bit too young yet. I knew that if I didn’t get out of there and went any further down I wouldn’t be able to get back.
NDE at age 15 due to bike accident.

2935. Erich B Probable NDE 1/21/2012. Probable NDE 6170. From Canada I had just come home on leave from the armed forces to visit my parents. I had a bad headache, so I walked to the doctor’s office where I collapsed and passed out. I woke up one week later. I had the experience of a tunnel, the light, the music, total relaxation, and I could see a figure of a person at the end of tunnel, but could not recognize it. When I came to, there was a room full of people looking at me, including my parents. As the years went by, I noticed a definite change in my feelings toward living things. I used to love hunting, whereas now I choose to kill nothing, not even a fly. My family has told me many times over the years that I have been different since my NDE experience.
Probable NDE due to coma as a result of spinal meningitis.

2934. Jack M NDE 1/18/2012. NDE 6168. The space was lighter to the right, fading to a dim light as I panned left. I turned my attention back to the lighter end. At no time did I see a human like form, or any other form of being during the experience. However, toward the end of the experience, I sensed a presence originating from the lighter end of the space.
NDE due to boat accident and subsequent drowning.

2933. Michael L NDE 1/18/2012. NDE 6167. I entered through the door and immediately felt an intense feeling of love and warmth. As I walked I saw a beautiful field with an intense blue sky. The blue color was unlike I had ever seen in my life. I then became aware of beautiful music coming from everywhere; rocks, trees, grass, etc. were all praising god. I saw no one but as I turned I saw a throne or alter, I don’t know which, with multiple colors streaming from it.
NDE during heart surgery.

2932. Jean R NDE 1/18/2012. NDE 6166. I then went through a life review. It was all about my relationships with others in this review. During this, I felt what they felt in my relationship with them. I felt their love or their pain or their hurt by things I had done or said to them. Their hurt or pain made me cringe and I found myself thinking, ‘Oooh, I could have done better there.’ But most of what I felt was love, so it was not too bad. No one was judging me during this process. I felt no disapproval from anyone else, only my own reactions to it all. That feeling of unconditional love saturating me continued to be there. I was judging myself, but no one else was judging me in this review.
Exceptional NDE due to toxic shock syndrome. Remarkable experiences- a must read!

2931. Susan T Probable NDE 1/18/2012. Probable NDE 6165. I know that I was ‘somewhere else’ and that, wherever I was, there was no pain and that, wherever I was it was, going to be, all right; even if I died and wasn’t coming back. I did not feel that I needed to return or that I was going to miss out on something. I have a deep understanding that it wasn’t my time and that I was ‘shown mercy’. I was someone who didn’t believe in God and where I was, was going to be ok, but that would have ‘been it.’
Probable NDE due to severe auto accident.

2930. Pegi R NDE 12/31/2011. NDE 6163/6164. They were all standing, except one in the middle, up front; he was sitting. He was God. God spoke to me, and I replied to him. I was rude and disrespectful. I started screaming that I didn’t want to be there and didn’t want to stay. I was very angry. I told him I have young sons at home that need me. I screamed, ‘I won’t go!’ Then God let me know, through thought, that I may be trying to get my way, but I was not the boss there. So I humbled myself before him, and asked him to look into the future and, I said, ‘If my sons would be better off without me, I will agree to stay.’ But if they wouldn’t be, I begged to go back to take care of them. Then I saw them, my sons at home, being raised by their dad without me there. They were so sad and alone. He had a girlfriend and she didn’t love them the way I loved them, and they missed me terribly. I was so sad and I longed to comfort them. I then asked God, ‘Who else will teach them about you?’
Exceptional NDE due to ectopic pregnancy and internal bleeding. Another NDE from drowning.

2929. Jose M Probable NDE 1/18/2012. NDE 6162. From El Salvador After crossing the exit of the tunnel, I was surrounded completely by the Light. I tried to look back to see if the tunnel was still there, but I could not see it. Everywhere I could see I would only see this Light. This Light** was of a kind I’ve never seen in this world, it was a white so pure that would be impossible here. I don’t have words to describe it. I know I had a conversation with the Light. I could not remember the contents of the conversation. I do remember however, that the communication was not through sound. I listened to the voice but it communicated directly putting the concepts of what He wanted to speak directly into my consciousness. I did communicate back to the Light but not by speaking.
Probable NDE due to illness at age 9.

2928. Tony D NDE 1/18/2012. NDE 6160. In 1992 my wife came home with another man. I stabbed myself in the heart. I was taken to the emergency room. I flat lined twice, but once I was floating and heard the Doctor and every detail, but it was dark and I saw nothing. No anesthesia at the time. I was dead, but I was more alive than ever.
NDE due to suicide attempt. He is now in college studying for the ministry.

2927. Sue C NDE 1/18/2012. NDE 6159. Slowly, one…then two….then four…and on, stars lit up in my vision. They were far away, very tiny. They twinkled white at first, and then as they grew in number and I felt I was getting closer, there were colors. Colors I have never seen, colors I love, colors I am familiar with. At first it was like looking at the sky, but as became one with this sea, it was more like a translucent river of stars and colors, they would breathe and undulate. They seemed to be as one. They all interacted together like an ocean, with a tide, with waves…rising and falling lazily in space. I became aware of my place among them, I floated and relaxed. The most important thing in this place was the feeling of bliss.
Exceptional NDE due to accident at age 17.

2926. Mark G Probable NDE 9/25/2011. Probable NDE 22617. I was told that I could continue and that we have three times in life to make the choice, but that for me, my health would be worse in the future. I was desperate and I had two small boys at the time. I remember taking the hand and grabbing it and putting it right on my back where the pneumonia had shown on the X-ray. Immediately I stopped coughing. The next day, we were coming home to Virginia and I was having what looked like an allergic reaction to the antibiotic. We stopped at the hospital and the doctor looked at me and said it did look like a reaction. He asked why I was prescribed it and I told him pneumonia. He asked if I had the X-rays and I told I’m that it was done in a hospital in Maryland. He ordered another which showed absolutely no sign of pneumonia.
Probable NDE due to pneumonia. Healed of pneumonia after experience.

2925. Marilyn R NDE 1/8/2012. NDE 6158. From Canada Suddenly I felt someone pick me up in their arms and I was surrounded by light and I looked in the smiling face of a man who said his name was Jesus he told me not to be frightened he was here to take me back. He had shoulder length brown hair and dark brown eyes. He was wearing leather sandals on his feet with straps that went between his toes and tied around his ankles. He had on a long white gown with long sleeves with a long light blue tunic over it. There was a gold color rope tied around his waist. His voice was very soft and kind almost musical and I felt a feeling of pure love and complete safety and trust. As we were walking up the stairs, I noticed that the left side of the wall was still basement wall but the right side of the wall disappeared and in its place was a beautiful garden full of long grass and wild flowers. I could hear birds singing and there were butterflies flying. I could see little children playing and chasing little lambs and I could hear their laughter.
Exceptional NDE due to strangulation at age 6.

2924. Erinn H NDE 1/8/2012. NDE 6155. I remember seeing myself with both my hands covering my face I then remember when I was in my body I was covering my face because of the feeling of blacking out. I was surrounded by darkness but did not feel at all that I was in the dark, I immediately felt peace, all my worries and fears I didn’t feel anymore but they weren’t taken completely away I had a knowing that they were placed to the right of me for the time being. Then something telepathically told me to accept the peace I’m feeling and if I do I would have eternity and eternity was straight ahead and that meant death to earthly life.
NDE due to unconsciousness during panic attack at age 17.

2923. Genevieve G NDE 1/7/2012. NDE 5390. From Germany. Original in German, translated by Sunita. In this dream, I ‘flew’ over the hospital where I was having the treatments and I saw all from up there; the parked cars, the entrances designed as winter gardens flooded with light. I felt light in weight and secure in a warm manner. In fact, I already had been in this hospital about 10 years earlier to visit my grandma and at that time, these entrances did not exist yet in this form.
NDE after brain surgery.

Near Death Experience Research Foundation-Archives 2013

3550. Sally C Probable NDE 12/28/2013. Probable NDE 7049. I had an almost dreamlike experience of being in space. I saw light beings and the one great light was God. I knew the answers to everything. Even sorrow made sense. I understood life’s purpose.
Probable NDE due to accident with blood loss at age 8. Most likely this was an NDE, then a separate hallucinatory experience in the recovery room or later.

3549. Danee C NDE 12/28/2013. NDE 7048. As for my experience with the nothing: it was a moment and an eternity. There was complete darkness, yet it was so peaceful that I cannot describe it. I was aware of my soul and aware that I was free from my body. There was no time like we have alive, on earth. Time felt stretched, but afterwards only seemed like a few seconds. I was aware of and thought of my children. Then I became aware that ‘everything is as it should be.’ It was as if someone had spoken it in their mind and I read their thoughts. It was as if I was just visiting to see the complete and total peace that I had no idea that existed, before that moment.
NDE due to complication of cardiac procedure.

3548. Jean B NDE 12/28/2013. NDE 7046. Not only did I not feel any distress such as the need to breathe, but I felt so loved and so comforted. As I looked in the distance underwater, I noticed twirling water that became a tunnel. At the end of the tunnel, I saw a beautiful white light. The light was so beautiful that I was drawn to it. I wanted to be closer. I have never felt such love and peace since.
NDE due to drowning at age 4. Shared 51 years later.

3547. Toby Possible NDE 12/28/2013. Possible NDE 7045. I wasn’t scared, or feeling any emotions. The fish was about 4 inches long, and had a thin body, maybe 1.5 inches thick or so. When this fish got in front of my face, it had stopped there, and slowly manifested a glow around its body. It was a very faint glow and emitted yellowish blue and green colors around its body. Then there was a quick nod of its head back and forth as if to say ‘NO!! It’s not your time’: I was clear that this was the message to me.
Near drowning with altered consciousness at age 9. No OBE, no clear imminent life-threatening event.

3546. Kelli G NDEs 12/28/2013. NDEs 7043. I could hear my brother enter the room and tell mom that I was in cardiac arrest and respiratory distress, and that I didn’t have much time. She told him that she wasn’t going to any hospital until she finished her make-up. The conversation sounded so far away. Then I could hear nothing. I was floating along in this tunnel filled with a bright, white light. I couldn’t see anyone because of the brightness but I just knew someone was at the other end. I thought it was GOD so I told him ‘Lord, I am sorry for my sins but I’m not ready to die yet, I’ll miss my mom’. Then I felt a love within me that I have never known before or again. After that I awoke in the hospital.
NDE due to cocaine at age 15, and another NDE at age 28 due to drug overdose.

3545. Robert M FDE 12/28/2013. FDE 7041. My whole life past flashed before my eyes so quickly. All the events were real and it was like 19 years’ worth of events passed through my head in seconds. It was weird. The attack was only 3 or 4 seconds, but in my mind, my thoughts and memories were processing so fast everything slowed down, but when I remember the event it all seemed like it happened in a flash.
Fear-death experience after throat was cut in criminal attack.

3544. Elaina S NDE 12/28/2013. NDE 7040. Non-Western NDE originally from Iran, now living in Austria All I can remember is that I saw myself lying on the street. I think that I also saw myself sitting there looking for something, and then passing out. I have this weird feeling associated with seeing myself from outside of my body for a few seconds and then being back within my body!
Brief NDE from 15 year old due to head injury during accident. She is originally from Iran and is Muslim.

3543. Gabriel NDE 12/28/2013. NDE 7036 & Probable NDE 7035. On it, a guide or god showed me events that have come to pass. One that I remembered was in Isr’l they shot a teenager in the grassy hills after he threw rocks at soldiers and which started the second intifada or Arab revolt. In this ‘movie’ I was watching it until I was living it: being in the grass looking at the slain teenager and the soldiers who chased this teen who found him hiding and killed him anyway. They questioned the soldier and each other as to why he did that.
NDE due to strangulation at age 6. Probable NDE due to LSD overdose.

3542. Sean M NDEs 12/28/2013. NDEs 7034. From the UK I climbed over a hedge and slipped, I tried to catch the barbed wire in my hand and missed; the barb tore a long ways up my forearm, blood gushed. I fell. Then I saw a beautiful orchard and beings. I believe I had another NDE, in my parents’ house that night. I lost a lot of blood. I walked towards the orchard, it was silvery white and beautiful. I saw those I knew but had never met in this life, I was light and felt no pain, up until then my arm was in shreds and I was in pain. As I neared the beautiful orchard, I came to a cold stream. I knew, as if being told, I can never come back if I cross this stream. I didn’t like my life so far, so I battled against it but couldn’t cross it. Bang! I was back in my body with headache pain and heaviness, it hurt so much, but I was alive again.
Two NDEs close in time to each other at age 17.

3541. Annie V NDE 12/28/2013. NDE 7032. From Belgium. Original in French, Translated to English by Marguy. I floated in a dark tunnel that seemed alive with circles and a pale-bluish fog. I had never felt so good and so happy, filled with love and peace, and above all I was experiencing the sense that I possessed knowledge about everything. In the distance there was a white light; it was very bright, but it didn’t hurt my eyes. Then I noticed that to the left of the light, and illuminated by it, there were several people waving to me in a happy, welcoming way!
Teenage suicide attempt.

3540. Charles M Probable NDE 12/28/2013. Probable NDE 7026. From Canada. Original in French, Translated to English by Marguy. In 1960, I was 6 years old and drowning. I saw the events of my life passing rapidly. I had the impression of going through a tunnel and then I saw a light.

3539. Monique NDE 12/28/2013. NDE 7016. From France. Original in French, Translated to English by Marguy. Coming out of the ‘light’, a paradisiacal landscape opened up before me: with, at first, its little wooden bridge, where a river was flowing underneath. Opposite, at the left, in a mountain landscape, was a magnificent rainbow where the light was even ‘stronger and warmer and more filled with love’, where I KNEW that I would enter and be happy.
NDE from attempted suicide.

3538. Riccardo NDE 12/27/2013. NDE 5456. From Italy. Original in Italian, Translated to English by Francesca. I found myself sitting in the middle of a very big soft black velvet semicircular sofa. In front of me, there was a big screen as though I was going to watch a movie. On the screen, I saw a dark mountain. Behind the mountain, a blinding light forced me to keep looking down toward the foot of the mountain. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw around me, both to the right and the left. I saw the shadows of people who seemed to me to be dead relatives and friends, but since it was dark, I could not see to distinguish their faces.
NDE from cardiac arrest.

3537. Jeff S NDE 8/18/2007. NDE 16069. I knew immediately that this man was Jesus. I never saw him before, but I knew that he was the master and my lord. I understood that he knew every fine detail about me. Jesus wore a white roman like cloak from his neck to his feet with long arm sleeves that were very loose. A red loose ban of clothing stretched from his left shoulder across the chest to his right waist. He had long brown curly hair that dangled to his shoulder length. Everything happened so fast that I didn’t see his wounds in his hands, face, nor see the color of his eyes.
NDE as a child where he had a conversation with Jesus.

3536. Brent H NDE 8/17/2007. NDE 16068. I felt this unexplainably intense love, with joy, peace and just overwhelming. It seemed as if time didn’t matter. As he pulled me up, I saw that he wore and all-white robe, but whiter than one would see on this earth. As I was stood up, I looked at his face. His hair was white like wool ) his hair was white like wool. His blue eyes pierced through his face with flames of his love. His face was so bright, I couldn’t see other facial features but I knew it was Jesus. He spoke to me and said, ‘My son, my son, it’s not time for you to come home yet. I have much work for you to do on earth.’ He said it again as he put his hand on my shoulder. I felt like I was being sucked back into my body.
NDE as a child where he had a conversation with Jesus. Contributor is a Pastor.

3535. Zena M Probable NDE 12/15/2013. Probable NDE 7028. From Canada. Anyway, as I started to enter the ‘place’, there was a bright, bright, soft light. It was shaped as if you drew an oval around a person. The light came from nowhere and started to touch me. It wasn’t pushing against me, yet there was no sense of being touched except by love. As I moved backwards out of the door, the light said to me, ‘Not yet.’ Then the door shut.
Probable NDE at age 3 due to asthma attack. Shared 64 years later.

3534. Glenn Possible NDE 12/15/2013. Possible NDE 7027. When I inhaled the nitrous, I felt the effects of it immediately: as if my mind was about 3 feet away from my body, upwards and forward in the front of myself. I instantly knew how all my current decisions were affecting the people in my life and how everyone viewed me. It wasn’t pretty. My drug abuse and how I was treating the family was very selfish and made people view me in a certain light. The experience out of body only lasted about 5 seconds, if that much. It was almost like an all-knowing, but not of the entire universe or anything, only what I needed at the time. The experience made me really think about what I was doing to myself; and how what I said and did, really did affect the others in my life. Not just me.
SOBE possible NDE due to inhaling nitrous oxide at age 15.

3533. John V Probable NDE 12/15/2013. Probable NDE 7025. I found myself in a tunnel that was somewhat scary and musty smelling. At the end was a brilliant light. I walked toward the light and through into another world. ‘Heaven?’ There was a point where I couldn’t go any further. My grandmother was there crying with her arms held out to me. She had died when I was a teenager. She hugged me. It was like when you would come out of a cold lake, and your mother would wrap a warm towel around you. I had a feeling of total unconditional love. I had no pain just a feeling of total wellness.
Probable NDE at time of great pain and diagnosis of stage 4 non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

3532. Lucky NDEs 12/15/2013. NDEs 7021. I had woken up again, this time in the operating room. I watched the doctor sticking in the catheter tube in my leg. I saw a lot of people moving very fast around me doing all sorts of things I was watching this from above my chest. I wasn’t floating from the ceiling or anything like that but just barely high enough to see what he was doing and to see myself exposed to the room.
NDEs due to heart attack and febrile episode as infant. Shared about five weeks after most recent NDE.

3531. Duane H NDE 12/13/2013. NDE 7014. BAM, I was gone and I was in a place that couldn’t be described as earthly. I was in a place or state that was void of everything and I needed nothing. The closest inadequate description would be ‘Nirvana’. It was wonderful.
NDE due to sudden loss of consciousness following surgery.

3530. Peter S NDE 12/13/2013. NDE 7011. From Thailand I never, in my entire life, fell asleep as nicely as during that time. I felt no weight, was going wherever I wanted and there were beautiful white clouds of which I’d never seen. The feeling was amazing; it looked like freedom. Then at a certain moment, I saw a face and a body in very nice white clothes, a fresh face with black half-short hair, which started talking to me. I don’t know if it is male or female, but it very friendly. This person told me, ‘You have to go back, because you need to do a lot for the people, it is not yet time to come here.’
NDE due to apparent cardiac arrest, and probable NDE due to apparent cardiac problem.

3529. Maggie C Probable NDE 12/13/2013. Probable NDE 7007. I found myself floating through a dark tunnel, but yet it was light enough and starry enough that I could see myself floating around in the tunnel. I looked at my arms and legs but did not actually see them. I became very frightened because I knew what was happening to me. I knew that I was dying. On my journey, I saw the brightest light I had ever seen far, far away. The closer I came to the light, the less sad I was. Finally, at one point, I was not thinking about my children anymore. I was thinking about how happy I was. I had never experienced such human happiness in my life.
Probable NDE due to dental anesthesia.

3528. Connie C NDE 12/13/2013. NDE 7004. I was facing a row of people, many of whom I felt were familiar to me, although I do not now remember their faces. We were talking. I do not know the subject, but we talked for a long, long time: so very long. Then, they began to smile and wave, like they were waving goodbye to me. Suddenly, the scene changed and the people were gone. The words flashed through my mind, ‘where did all the people go?’ We had been discussing something intensely interesting, and I wanted to go back to continue.
NDE at time of delivery

3527. Joel L NDE 5/26/2013. NDE 22900. Exactly after watching these events, with no delay, the next thing I knew was, that I had somehow assumed a position approximately 30 feet above what was happening below, watching what was going on below me. I saw EVERYTHING, except my body, which was now under water. I saw several people dive into the lake to search for my body. I saw them eventually find it. I saw them pull my body up onto the dam and begin to attempt to resuscitate me.
NDE due to being hit on head by a log at age 12. Shared 50 years later.

3526. Bob B NDE-Like 11/27/2013. NDE-Like 6999. Original in German. Translated to English by Marguy. The sphere changed into a big white cloud, and I dove inside! Now I started experiencing an unprecedented feeling of happiness! Never in my whole life had I ever felt this way! (I never have since then, either.) I was floating in this cloud: I noticed I was not alone. Somehow, the cloud contained the whole world! It seemed to become like a water bubble, with everything inside it: trees, houses, animals, people that I knew and strangers, too, and rocks, plants, just everything was there. Everything was floating along with me!
NDE-like experience during a Gestalt Therapy group.

3525. Adrian B Possible NDE 8/17/2007. Possible NDE 16067. I could see nothing but the light, everywhere I looked around me. The one thing I could share with you is that any possible trace of pain or distress has totally vanished in such a place. I was incorporated in that light, I(my soul) was reflecting the light, it was a wonderful feeling. I could feel the peacefulness, love and tranquility. I was simply happy. I was experiencing all these beautiful feelings, although I could still feel my lips wailing with the pain I had prior to my getting there, as I had been crying before my crossing-over.
Child Possible NDE.

3524. Robert W NDE 12/7/2011. NDE 16062. I remember the bright white light. To me, it feels more like walking with a purpose than a confined tunnel. The first time it happened, when I came to, the paramedics had the defibrillator out and were working on me. It was a shock and a jolt when I came back. The second time, I was in the cardiologist’s office taking a stress test and I fainted when they put the radioactive die in my IV. The second time I fainted, I saw people. I didn’t recognize any of them. They looked at me as if wondering why are you here. Something was wrong. I guess it wasn’t my time to go yet.
NDEr wrote to us.

3523. Sarah W Probable NDE 11/23/2013. Probable NDE 7003. This time when I was thinking them to myself, like I had so many times before. I was getting answers back. It was a male’s voice. His voice was soothing and calming. It was the perfect pitch and music to my ears. I was going over in my mind what I always had. ‘Why won’t God protect me?’ I heard ‘He will’. I said ‘He will?!!’ He said ‘Yes.’ With each answer, I could feel the weight of worry come off my spirit, much like the saying, ‘the weight of the world on your shoulders’. I asked, ‘Why won’t God stick up for me?’ He told me the things I was dealing with were all temporary. I told him I didn’t do all those things of which I was being accused. But, no one would believe me. He said ‘I believe you.’ I said ‘You do?’ I can’t tell you how great it felt to have someone believe me. I was still staring out onto Earth. It was so close to where I was. I was in awe of the size and colors.
Exceptional probable NDE at age 14. Epic experience in the unearthly realms and with Jesus with answers to her deepest life questions. By classification rules this is a ‘Probable NDE’, but what you read here is the real thing.

3522. Bessie Probable NDE 11/23/2013. Probable NDE 6998. I became aware of what felt like a woman I could not identify, nor was I familiar. It felt mostly feminine, actually, but I can’t remember if it felt masculine as well.
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt with overdose of pills at age 13.

3521. Yazmine S NDE 11/16/2013. NDE 6992. From New Zealand It was in and with everyone and everything. It had always been in and with everything. It was/is, Truth and Love and Compassion and Joy and All. This Goldenness held all information. It was the One Mind. It contained the creation of all of everything ever created. I felt, I experienced everything that has ever been and ever shall be. All is simultaneously occurring. There is no past or future. It all just IS. There is no way to describe the immaculate beauty of this experience, though every day, for the last 35 years I wish I could find a way. Bliss, is a mere descriptive word, yet does not give to you what I wish I could, but yes, ‘bliss’ is close, in a way.
Exceptional NDE due to blood loss following miscarriage.

3520. Paul B NDE 11/9/2013. NDE 6990. From the UK Just then Paul, the department store man entered the office, [ironically Paul’s nickname is Gripper] he’s a big lad, 20 plus stones and built like an outhouse. He immediately started slapping my back, and chest to no avail, but I was still in control. I grabbed his arms turned into him, clasped his thumbs under my rib cage, and motioned Gripper to pull up. A second later, I drifted out, to the side, how far to the side I don’t know but I was disconnected from the body.
NDE due to choking.

3519. Lisa T NDEs 11/9/2013. NDEs 6988. I suddenly saw what appeared before my eyes as an old movie screen of my life being played out: from the very day of my birth, all the way to what would have been my funeral. As I watched my family crying, I cried out, ‘No! No!’
Three exceptional NDEs at ages 10, 19, and 40 due to head injury, drowning, and cardiac arrest during medical procedure. Remarkable insights!

3518. Kenneth H Probable NDE 11/9/2013. Probable NDE 6986. I saw everything as it was. The room I was in didn’t have a ceiling, only walls and floor all brightly lit. Where my perception was centered, was beautiful. There was a full moon and every star shone more brightly than ever before. I was standing on the threshold, and all I had to do was step away. I felt voices rather than heard them.
Probable NDE due to illness including renal failure.

3517. Ryan D Probable NDE 11/9/2013. Probable NDE 6985. From Ireland I don’t know where or when, but I have this memory of a white light: the brightest light I’ve ever encountered, but it had no effect on my eyes. I have to emphasize that there was nothing other than this light: no loved ones, no angels, no voices or tunnels just light. With this light was peace, the most amazing feeling ever: love, comfort, inner peace and the weight of the world off my shoulders, it really was as simple as this.
Probable NDE due to sub-arachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding around the brain).

3516. Sunny P Possible NDE 4/2/2013. Possible NDE 22891. The next thing I remember was seeing and experiencing a beautiful crystal-like, kaleidoscope-like (but not symmetrical) light. I could also hear a soothing chime-like sound. Like a funnel with suction, I was back in the emergency room. I was sad and almost irritated that they ‘interrupted my dream.’ The first words from my lips were, ‘ahhh, I was having such a great dream.’ The woman standing over me said, ‘we lost you’ and they had to revive me. I didn’t think too much about it at the time, I guess just glad I was a alive. This experience won’t leave me and has caused to contemplate its meaning. I learned last week that we don’t dream while under anesthesia. Then what was I doing? I believe that if I share, others will share and it may help me find answers as to why this experience stays with me so strongly.
Possible NDE due to setting bones in emergency room.

3515. Martin NDE 11/14/2013. NDE 6962. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Manuel. Suddenly in the fog, I could see a lighter little dot in front of me and it attracted me. At that moment, I decided to advance; I hear a masculine voice over my right shoulder that tells me ‘Not yet’ and touches my shoulder. When I tried to turn, I felt as if I was falling.
NDE from being ill and fainting.

3514. Krista G NDE 11/3/2013. NDE 6984. Then, from the love that was both within and around me, it was communicated to me that I had one of three choices to make. First, was to move forward, into the woods. However, I’d already rejected that. The second choice was to continue onward to what lay beyond my present reality, and the third was to return to my body, and resume the life I had left behind. However, if I chose this, I was to share my experience through being of service to others. I looked at the beauty around me, once again feeling the enormity of it, and the love, peace and oneness of it all. My pulse returned at 9:26 am.
Profound NDE due to cardiac arrest during delivery. She is a physician assistant.

3513. Debra B Probable NDE 11/3/2013. Probable NDE 6981. Jesus told me it would be okay, because he had something better for me. I remember wanting to stay: there was so much peace and love there. I started to turn to walk back down the path, when I looked back, one last time; I saw a demon standing on a small hill in the forest. I could see all of him now and knew this was Satan. I felt pity for him and he turned and walked back into the darkness.
Probable NDE due to illness.

3512. Veronica C Probable NDE 11/3/2013. Probable NDE 6980. The area was illuminated with a white light, yet with no obvious physical lighting. I distinctly remember there was something delightful there associated with animals, something on which I could ride. A rocking horse is the only way my childish mind could describe it, but it was more magnificent and lion-like.
Probable NDE at age 2 due to accidental choking.

3511. Chris B Possible NDE 11/3/2013. Possible NDE 6978. From Canada. Everything went completely white. It was not a flashlight, tunnel, or glowing light. It was more like a white snowstorm, I guess, but with that particular white. I knew I was at a table area talking to someone, I don’t know who it was. I remember being told, ‘Chris, it’s time to head back.’
Possible NDE due to truck accident with traumatic brain injury. Recalled experience many weeks later.

3510. Dawn W Possible NDE 11/3/2013. Possible NDE 6977. I left my body slowly, peacefully and effortlessly. I began a very slow journey through a semi-darkened tunnel upward towards a light far away, at first. In the distance, I could make out the silhouette of two figures on the left side. On the furthest to the left was the taller of the two. Directly next to him was a much shorter person. As I neared them, I somehow knew the tall figure on the left was indeed my Grandfather and next to him, the short figure, was my Great Grandmother. I could not make out any of their features. They were all shadow/silhouette. A very, very bright light glowed from behind them both.
Possible NDE associated with hypotension in surgery.

3509. Hyacinth Probable NDE 11/3/2013. Probable NDE 6976. I remember the first person I saw was my step-grandfather who had died just a day before. I remember thinking ‘what are you doing here?’ He just smiled and told me to ‘come along.’ I don’t remember a tunnel or anything, we just walked a bit, all of the sudden I saw a lot of people running around, doing things, and they were very happy. I saw bowls of fire. People were putting their hands in them and they were not burning. I saw angels.
Probable NDE due to liver failure and coma.

3508. Kathryn H NDE 11/3/2013. NDE 6975. It was more of a feeling that we are already all One, so what happens is just more of a ‘drama’. It would be okay to just let it all stop/or not stop. I felt removed from what was happening, like being in a dream state and simply observing things around me. I was aware that what is most important is: we see that we are all part of one Being. We are not separate, but make things seem separate in order to play out this reality. By finding our oneness, we can make true connections with each other. All the rest is head games and false reality.
NDE due to head injury and drowning. Contributor is Buddhist

3507. Sue B NDE 11/3/2013. NDE 6972. The field behind us was very green and whoever owned the corn growing there had a good year. I could smell fresh cut grass or something earthy in the air: it was very fresh and pleasant. The thing that bothered me was that I couldn’t see the man’s face, we talked but no direct eye-to-eye contact, and I seemed to be looking at him through the corner of my eye. It was almost like I was bashful, but I had the feeling I was very close to this person. I could tell he was my age, had dark hair, and I knew his build. I remember hearing a voice that said ‘someone up there loves her very much and was watching over her.
NDE due to being hit by car while on bicycle.

3506. Sehmoune N Probable NDE 10/26/2013. Probable NDE 6966. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. Just after the operation, I saw my open back. I had lost three liters of blood. At that moment I was dead, I saw a white path with my cousin and a light at the end. I talked to him. Another path was black with much blood and screaming. I saw an old woman there that I knew. Before seeing all this a spirit asked me ‘do you believe in God?’ and I said ‘yes’.
Probable NDE that deepened her faith.

3505. Mark F NDEs 10/26/2013. NDEs 6969. During the 2001 experience I was given seizure medication. That time, I had a full, out of body experience where I was watching the emergency room staff work on me. I knew the full conversation they were having and recalled afterward all that had happened. I related to the doctor, shortly after (within a minute), everything he had said and done. I was hospitalized after this, and as day went on, I could recall more details, although no one was telling me anything.
NDE during medicine administrated for a seizure. NDE during a cardiac stress test which happened the day prior to his sharing the experiences.

3504. Matthew P NDE 10/26/2013. NDE 6967. The next thing I knew, I was lying on a hospital gurney with two, what appeared to be, doctors checking my pulse and blood pressure; calmly discussing that I had neither. At this point, I realized the fact that I was looking down on this scene and I was about five feet above it all. I put together, instantly, that I had been drunk, smashed this window and I was now looking at my lifeless body below me. I started screaming that I wasn’t dead, repeatedly. I started rising above, what felt like ten feet, where I had been. Then, poof: a bright, white light all around me.
NDE due to blood loss from cut.

3503. Steven F Probable NDE 10/26/2013. Probable NDE 6965. My sensation of travel then began to feel more controlled and guided. More like moving at a high rate of speed, and all around me is ‘brilliant’. It is a bright light that is pure, and cannot be described or compared to anything other than itself. As quickly as this sensation begins, it starts to slow, like being tethered, and stops. The stop is abrupt, and I am shown images/events. I have a sense of understanding for them, but can’t put context or belonging to them. Then off I go, stop, images/events. This repeats itself numerous times.
Probable NDE due to combat injury in Iraq.

3502. Hayley J FDE 10/26/2013. FDE 6964. MY LIFE FLASHED BEFORE ME. My fall was broken by a platform that was built to support a pump that supplied water to our house. I hit my head on the pump and didn’t care because I was saved by that platform. There was a ladder there that I climbed back up it. At 8 there isn’t much of a life to review. My experience made me realize that someone was looking out for me.
Fear-death experience due to fall down cliff at age 8. Shared 62 years later.

3501. Norman T NDE 10/26/2013. NDE 6963. Then I turned, looked around, and said, ‘I have to help those retards get that guy into the ambulance.’ The person going into ambulance was me. I remember bouncing around in the ambulance as they started driving. Then I fell into my body.
NDE due to being struck by car.

3500. Carol G NDE 4/14/2013. NDE 22889. From Canada. I knew I was no longer in control and just went with the fall. I opened my eyes. It was like seeing for the first time, everything was very bright on this dark, snowy day. The building I had just exited was in total blackness in my left peripheral vision. I could see traffic moving in front of me, as well as on the off ramp. From my right, when I looked down, I saw a body falling. I said aloud, ’that’s Carol.’ It came out in a whisper of several voices, both female and male. I rushed to help the falling person when I was suddenly back inside the body. I could feel the pain on the top of my head that already existed and I felt the second hit to the back of the head. I said out loud in single voice, ‘thank you God for not letting it hit in the same place twice.’
NDE due to slip on ice. Interesting in that SOBE started before her head was injured.

3499. Louis S NDE 10/26/2013. NDE 6960. From France. Original in France, translated to English by Marguy. There I just remember being in a dark tunnel with a light at the end. I see my father, who died 4 years ago and who tells me ‘it’s not your hour’. I sense the light as being filled with love and it is taking away all the frustrations of my life. I’m obeying my father and turn around, while being sad to leave him again, and happy having seen him.
NDE from going unconscious.

3498. Theresa C NDE 10/21/2013. NDE 5455. From Italy. Original in Italian, translated to English by Francesca Suddenly, I was on the top of a mountain. All around there were other snow-capped peaks and the colors of the sun were similar at a sunset. In front of me, a handsome guy shows up, with short, blond hair, dark blond, trimmed beard, and blue eyes wearing a red Colmar down jacket. He was always smiling. He told me that if I continued to be the way I was in this life, one day I would be happy. He told me other things I don’t remember, but I remember I was in peace, and serenity; everything was huge and beautiful, there was love and perfection, the universe was balance and I was in a blissful state.
Amazing NDE where she met a fellow who she found out later had just died in an avalanche.

3497. Daniela NDE 10/21/2013. NDE 6941. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Manuel. When my parents got me up, in that moment I saw myself out of my body. I saw myself, the situation, and I was listening to everything. Then everything went black. All of a sudden, I saw a white bright light. I was listening to murmurs and I said to myself, ‘This is it.’ I let myself fall into my father’s arms. During all those moments, first I felt anguish and then fear because I did not know what was happening. Later when seeing myself out of my body, I felt tranquil and in some way, pleasant.
NDE from fainting.

3496. Clarice F NDE 10/21/2013. NDE 6950. From France. Original in France, translated to English by Marguy. At the glimmer of this kind of light, the mirror lets me see my life in flashes. Sometimes I see with details and feel all this emotionality that I couldn’t manage. It is a trifle, this passionate love that led us to hell. Trifle, of course, nothing to report on my professional life, my social life, and other appearances. It is amusing trifles all this, just a look touching a well-muddled life, by details considered trivial here and there. It is like the look of a generous grandmother upon a small clumsy infant. No need for excuses, or pardon, all my life in the eyes of this presence and from a high perspective, was only touching and beautiful, perfect after all. Obviously I was there because my life, I had considered it to be unworthy, impossible to continue with it.
NDE from Suicide Attempt.

3495. François O Probable NDE 10/20/2013. Probable NDE 6949. From France. Original in France, translated to English by Marguy. Jesus is looking at me. There’s nothing Christ-like at him, but I know that it’s Jesus. I know it as this man has a smile and a look, that I never saw before. A smile and a look speaking of love. I saw Jesus who was smiling at me and loving me, and the more he looked at me the more I felt at ease. Then he looked away from me, and looking to the same direction as he did, I saw myriads of stars all around me. It was a sight of beauty. WONDERFUL.
Probable NDE from drug/alcohol overdose.

3494. Dara Possible NDE 10/19/2013. Possible NDE 6959. One afternoon, I found ‘myself’ floating above our small house. I could see the roof of our house from above, as well as the yard, and the woods. I saw everything from a bird’s eye view, at an angle I had never seen before. I could see above and below myself, front and back, and to the sides, simultaneously. Soon, drifting towards me in the sky above the trees, I saw a glowing lady in blue and white robes.
Possible NDE at age 4 associated with history of cardiac arrhythmia.

3493. Carla S NDE 10/19/2013. NDE 6956. Apparently, they were getting ready to declare me dead when I started shouting, yes shouting, my incantation. I remember coming to consciousness reciting.
NDE due to apparent cardiac arrest. Remarkable that the experience ended as she was reciting an incantation used in Catholic exorcisms.

3492. Kelly Q Probable NDE 10/19/2013. Probable NDE 6951. I found myself in a playground of sorts. I perceived it to be in the future. It was a huge indoor playground with very high ceilings: very advanced children around the ages of 3 and 5. We were playing on electric-powered tricycles with buttons for forward and reverse. They were riding on little tracks with curves, hills, and valleys for them to go around, up and down. I no longer felt pleasure, pain, hot, or cold. All physical sensations were gone my consciousness was no longer limited by its biological housing we call the brain.
Probable NDE due to aspiration during hospitalization.

3491. Karl A NDE 10/15/2013. NDE 6946. From Germany. Original in German translated to English by Marguy. I left my body and was floating above myself. In the distance, I saw an indescribable bright light. I saw myself lying under the wheel. I was swinging back and forth between the light and myself. I saw my father as he struggled to take care of me. As long as I was outside myself, I didn’t feel pain: only calm and peace. Suddenly, I was back again.
NDE from accident.

3490. Lacey Possible NDE 10/12/2013. Possible NDE 6948. Then suddenly, I felt so peaceful, warm, and calm and it lasted about 15 seconds. I never felt anything like that in my life before. Everything was dark and I was so peaceful, warm, and calm and didn’t care about anything in the world. I feel like I wasn’t even in my body at all and had neither pain nor feeling of sickness at all. It was a great feeling!
Possible NDE from overdose of alcohol and medication.

3489. Claud H NDE 10/12/2013. NDE 6947. Suddenly, I noticed two hands coming out of the light in front of me and I knew instantly that those hands were my dear Grandfather Juan’s hands. When I was a little boy, I used to sit on Grandpa Juan’s lap to talk with him. I was always fascinated by the size and roughness of his hands. The joy in my heart and soul were so strong, when I saw Grandpa Juan that I just grabbed him and hugged him. He told me that he was very happy to see me and that he loved me. He then added, ‘But Claudie it is not your time, and you must go back. Don’t worry because we will see each other again very soon.’
NDE due to clinical death during surgery for ruptured appendix.

3488. Bob R NDE 10/12/2013. NDE 6945. It was total blackness and total silence. I became afraid of the void. I did not know what it was and did not like it at all. In a short time I found myself moving through a tunnel. I was scared at first but it was better than the void and I became comfortable there, especially as I approached a light. I was wondering where I was going. I found myself in a space that was very calm and comforting. The lighting was a little unusual. I could not see a particular source of the light, but it was there and was warm and welcoming. Two beings were there, both males. I felt like I knew them, as if they were distant relatives, but I could not identify either one. They were dressed in clothes that we would wear on earth.
NDE due to drowning at age 8.

3487. Wanda T NDE 10/12/2013. Probable NDE 6944. I entered a very light room where there were other being of very bright light-bright but it did not hurt my eyes like it would here on Earth. They were distinct personalities. I felt comfortable. They showed me past events of my life and future events. I felt the emotions of me and the others. I understood our reasons for our actions, the emotions of all involved and I felt all mercy, love and understanding. I saw the effect of my death on my daughter and her future if I returned. One of the entities asked me if I was willing to return. I said “”Yes, but..”” I never got to finish, I really did not want to leave this wonderful place. I felt myself traveling very quickly. I slammed into my body with a big jolt. It took one second to feel the pain return and then the atmospheric pressure returned to my body-it felt like heavy chains weighing me down on all body surfaces.
Probable NDE associated with uterine bleeding.

3486. Linda S NDE 10/12/2013. NDE 6943. After that, I was in complete darkness for a while. Then, I wanted to see my mother, who was in the waiting room, so I floated through a glass window and tugged at her arm. She couldn’t hear or feel me. Shortly after, I found myself looking at a beautiful golden sun, hearing a deep voice telling me, I didn’t have to go back. But frantically, I had to go back; I wanted to be in a body, I didn’t want to be a spirit. The voice said to me, ‘If you go back, you will have a difficult life. Are you willing to suffer?’ I said yes and here I am. I asked my mother about the experience when I was about 9 years of age. She admitted, a tug at her arm was felt, and the surgery was taking too long.
NDE due to complication of tonsillectomy at age 2 ╜. Shared 71 years later!

3485. Hope R NDE 10/12/2013. NDE 6940. Around me, I felt an extreme sense of warmth. It was entirely black, but I was processing thoughts, thinking I was going to die. For some reason, I was not scared. All around me was a warm blanket of black warmth. It was extremely comforting, and I could take deep breathes of clean, sweet smelling air. This happened while I was underwater and could not actually breathe.
NDE at age 8 due to drowning after being bitten by a water moccasin snake.

3484. Andrea V Probable NDE 10/6/2013. Probable NDE 6934. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I saw everything like being in a milky white, but everything metallic was shiny. Then I turned myself, still horizontally, and mounted to the ceiling that was stopping me. I turned again to look down and then I felt aspirated upwards at a tremendous speed. I was in total darkness. I swiveled around and saw a small light, that was growing, as I went along approaching it. Arriving into the light, I was flooded by a mixture of love, peace, and well-being in my body and soul. How shall I put it? It was as if every cell of my body was exploding with sheer happiness, while at the same time I had no body anymore: contradictory!!
Probable NDE from allergic reaction to medication.

3483. Alice NDE 10/6/2013. Secondhand NDE 5454. From Italy. Original in Italian, translated to English by Patricia. My daughter Alice (I am her mother as Alice unfortunately is no longer with us) claims that she entered into a marvelous light that emitted warmth and a sense of peace. She then saw Jesus sitting against an immense tree; He had a beautiful face “like no other you see on earth”, she (Alice) said. During this experience, Jesus touched her hand and Alice thought, “I will die because He is taking me with Him”. Instead, the surgery went well, and Alice told me about this experience a year and a half after her surgery.
Second person NDE about Arianna’s daughter – Alice.

3482. Lael NDE 10/5/2013. NDE 6939. Once I was outside, I had the feeling that it was night. A shaft of brilliant white light, similar to looking into an aircraft searchlight, pierced the dark sky above me. By contrast, the dark around me was so deep it was palpable. I ‘fell’ upward through that light, but when I reached a threshold, a point of no return, I was stopped. I kept looking into the light. Within it were all the love, beauty, acceptance, and bliss imaginable. How can one describe perfection? I knew God was behind that light and I wanted more than anything to join the beings that I knew were with Him. However, a voice said, ‘Go back. It isn’t time.’
NDE due to seizure day after delivery.

3481. Phil Possible NDE 10/5/2013. Possible NDE 6938. I was moving through a dark tunnel, toward a very bright light, the light did not cause any discomfort to my eyes, in any way. I felt drawn to this light and felt a strong tranquility and a feeling of a path to peace. To the left of this light appeared my son’s face, no other part of his body, but it was as clear as anything was. He spoke the words, ‘Don’t do it Dad. Dad don’t go’, as clear as anything. The light began to dim and I felt myself recede from the tunnel.
Possible NDE following episode of head trauma from fall.

3480. Lori NDE 10/5/2013. NDE 6937. The very next thing I remember is the room being very bright: not like a tunnel of light but just the room, being very bright and I felt immense pressure on the side of my head and neck. I blinked my eyes a few times and I could see myself standing at the bottom of the operating room table. I heard the surgeon distinctly say, ‘where is all this damn blood coming from?!’ and I could see blood all over the front of the surgeon and it was on the floor.
NDE due to blood loss during surgery. Shared about 3 weeks after NDE happened.

3479. Debra M Probable NDE 10/5/2013. Probable NDE 6933. I also remember that each time I crossed over into the spiritual world and came back; I possessed a different spirit, one of a boy in fact. The spirit that I possess now is one that has been alive forever. What happened to each spirit that I carried in each experience was left behind with God, including the one that I was born into the flesh. The one that lives in myself now was the last one God sent me back into the living world to finish out what God had intended it to do.
Probable NDE due to head on car crash at age 8.

3478. Sandrine W NDE 10/3/2013. NDE 6932. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I listened to the neighbors, saw them walking through the courtyard, then I lifted my head and saw the pearl grey sky coming through, between the buildings and there I felt that I could leave, mounting in the sky and I started to panic. I turned, and went around the table again. I ran into the corridor, hopping over my body, came into the living room, my partner was standing near the window. He was smoking a cigarette, I was shaking him, but he wasn’t seeing nor hearing nor feeling me. Then I returned to my still lifeless body and at this moment, I heard steps that made the wooden floor creak: it was my friend. When he saw my body, he rushed to my body ignoring me (my spirit that I could visualize as myself without a body, in fact there were two me’s!)
NDE from falling down and going unconscious.

3477. Marc O NDE 10/2/2013. NDE 6931. From Canada. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. felt the presence of a multitude of beings facing me. I couldn’t see them but I guessed them to being small and agile. I saw numerous little light dots moving in front of me. I also clearly felt bad intentions, nothing but BAD intentions. These were Evil beings. I heard them whispering without understanding a single word, like in a horror movie. They seemed to be excited and moved around a lot, in the way excited sharks do when they are circling a prey. The prey was ME, except that I was not surrounded. Everything happened in front of me. All eyes turned on me. It was then that an event happened. I felt all beings stiffen, placing themselves swiftly.
Rare Hellish NDE from seizure.

3476. Isabel RM Possible NDE 10/2/2013. Possible NDE 6920. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Manuel. At that moment, a man came from behind me. He stared at me with such peace and so much love in his face, with such warmth that I did not fear. It gave me confidence and I stayed there. I was looking at him in wonder because this man had very skin golden, chestnut hair, had clear eyes and was dressed in brown. He was touching like some lights in the tree while turning and smiling again with all that warmth and love. There was a moment that I thought, ‘wait, wait, this is real’. While seeing around me, I felt myself really there, I even felt the breeze blowing and I saw how it was moving what looked like wheat.
Possible NDE due to anesthesia.

3475. Lin M Possible NDE 9/29/2013. Possible NDE 6928. From the UK. As it was being done, I began to realize that the images I had in my mind were all: well what were they? I also realized that the perspectives I could remember were all wrong, my field of vision would not have allowed me to see things I can remember clearly seeing. I’d never actually questioned it before, but how could I, on an operating table, see a panoramic view of the room both looking up and looking around it, as if from on high. I also realized that the white gowns the ‘students’ were wearing were just that: gowns, not white coats. Again, I’d not questioned it before.
Possible NDE following heart attack. Was in same area of the hospital six months later and realized her memories from six months ago was of an unearthly experience.

3474. Shante H NDE 9/29/2013. NDE 6926. I was tossed over 13 feet, landing on my shoulder and head. I was seeing shadows raising me and around me. I was feeling a deep sense of love and compassion. The beings were very vivid and were calming me. Then I came back to this realm.
NDE due to being hit by a car while riding a bike at age 10.

3473. Atlanta NDE 9/29/2013. NDE 6925. He guided me to a place where there were millions of souls who were loving and accepting of me. I kept saying ‘I don’t deserve to be here’ and they assured me it was where I belonged. I remember questioning why everything felt more real than anything ever had in my life! My brain was in a broken body and it seemed I had ‘pure consciousness without a material brain’. I began to understand why we live, when an authoritative ‘voice’ said. ‘NO. She is not ready’. I did not suffer a serious head injury, but the neurologist assigned to me wanted to study this ‘NDE’ I had several surgeries (13) over the next 4 months. The Neurologist decided to use KETAMINE 4 times for anesthesia to see if it reproduced the NDE. It did not; I had OBE’s and imaginative ‘trips’ but nothing like the NDE.
NDE due to pneumothorax. Contributor is a registered nurse. Neurologist caring for her decided to use ketamine for four of her operations to see if it would reproduce the NDE- it did not.

3472. Karen L Probable NDE 9/29/2013. Probable NDE 6924. From New Zealand. The experience was very brief. I was aware of arriving on the ‘other-side’ where I was met by a huge, radiant angelic being of white light. It was a soft muted area, ethereal and cloud-like. The angelic being communicated telepathically that I was being given a choice about returning to my body or continuing onward.
Probable NDE due to chest infection and high fever.

3471. Kevin A NDE 9/29/2013. NDE 6921. I saw a shimmering portal-like wreath, which enlarged and shrank in size. I knew I could reach through, and I did. It was welcoming and enticing. My grandfather was visible through the hole and he wanted to take me fishing. I reached through and stepped halfway in, then withdrew as my children entered my thoughts. I told my grandfather no and he said ‘but Kevin, I even have worms today.’ This meant the best bait possible for our favorite fishing spot.
NDE due to heart attack.

3470. Helen L Possible NDE 9/29/2013. Possible NDE 6919. I closed my eyes and all I saw was blackness. It was peaceful, no fear at all, just nothingness. It was a few minutes later I felt being grabbed from behind and my eyes opened when my daughter Sarah had found me and pulled me to the top surface, I remember the touch of her hands and feeling like I was being pulled back from somewhere and then opening my eyes just as I came to the surface.
Possible NDE due to drowning.

3469. Marla D NDE 9/29/2013. NDE 6918. Then I felt airborne, and said, ‘well, I’ve wrecked my life’. I knew or saw that my body was going either to be damaged, dead or very messed up. I felt lifted upward. I did not look at my body during this event. I was aware of what was happening.
NDE due to unknown cause of apparent unconsciousness while driving.

3468. Jessie S Probable NDE 9/29/2013. Probable NDE 6917. The feeling I had was similar to a feeling of seeing the person you love after being away from them for too long. That Light was pure, unconditional Love and I felt it. It was everything. It was everything that ever was and ever will be. I wanted to be part of it. The urge to follow it, walk towards it, melt into it was overwhelming. I belonged there. It was calling to me, waiting for me. I looked back into Anthony’s eyes, his hand still on my shoulder. I was overwhelmed with joy and love. The expression on his face confirmed what I knew. Yes, that was The Light and Anthony was there to walk me into it. He was there to take me home.
Probable NDE due to complications after surgery.

3467. Benita H Possible NDE 9/29/2013. Possible NDE 6916. The next thing I knew, I was awake. I was confused because I could see my husband and myself lying in the bed asleep. I realized I was lying on the ceiling. At first, I was scared but then it became a peaceful feeling. I wasn’t hurting at all. I was trying to wake my husband up but my body in the bed would not move. I could move on the ceiling. I was looking all around the room. There was nobody else there. It was calming, serene. I didn’t know what was happening. I don’t know how long I stayed on the ceiling.
Possible NDE following surgery.

3466. Jane A NDE 9/29/2013. NDE 6915. From the UK I found myself floating in a huge bright void with the most incredible music, yet it was completely silent. It felt peaceful. There was no fear. I felt love. I felt I had to come back. I awoke suddenly and found myself on the floor with my mother giving me the kiss of life. I was happy, yet also sad when I returned.
NDE due to unconsciousness from fumes from coal burning at age 6. Shared 49 years later.

3465. Charlene J Probable NDE 9/26/2013. Probable NDE 6909. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I felt something like a bursting in my head, and took off into space. I was accompanied by ‘presences’ that I didn’t see, but who were talking telepathically to me in terms of a kindly welcome, while up far away, there was a radiant sun diffusing an immeasurable love. My only wish was to join this sun.
Probable NDE from anesthesia complications.

3464. Nolwenn NDE 9/26/2013. NDE 6912. From Tunisia. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. A light that filled me with IMMENSE happiness, a feeling of peace and infinite Love! Unbelievable, indescribable, simply surreal! Never before nor after had I felt a similar and such a powerful sensation. It filled me from everywhere. I was propelled by the whirlwind, lightly, and landed upright on my legs, in a vast, grassy plain. Bright and welcoming, fresh and warm. A wonderful plain, as they only exist in dreams. A light blue sky dotted with little clouds, lightly floating in the sky.
NDE from Vasodepressor syncope.

3463. Hugo HSR NDE 9/26/2013. NDE 6899. From Brazil. Original in Portuguese, translated to English by Alexandra. I saw a blue light extending to the horizon. I asked myself ‘Am I in heaven?’ That light stayed still for a fraction of a second, I thought ‘Am I dead?’ In a scale from 0 to 100 with 100 as the maximum distance of that scale, the light was at ’70’ away from me. It was as if the light approaches only if you do everything that the bible says you cannot do. The light appeared in the same way people describe about the tunnel.
NDE from auto accident.

3462. Sarah LG NDE 9/19/2013. NDE 6907. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I remember that at this moment the being of light let go of my hand. I watched him leaving through this tunnel, joining the light that became more and more intense according to his progress. This light I saw was warm, full of joy, relief, happiness, Love. I felt like going through this tunnel, to join the light being. Because down there, the real world, I finally perceived it as cold, noisy, dark, and filled with pain.
Child drowning NDE.

3461. Mark S NDE 9/17/2013. NDE 6898. Suddenly, I felt this tremendous power pulling myself out of my chest area. As this was going on, a very powerful wind and rushing water were surrounding me. I was drowning. The water came up over my head, and I began swallowing water. An Angel (Guardian Angel) spoke to me and said, ‘Breathe, it’s all right to breathe, you won’t drown’. I took a deep breath and found I was breathing in water. The noise of the wind and rushing water subsided. I found myself floating inside my body.
Brief NDE with an encounter with Jesus!

3460. Irving K NDE 9/17/2013. NDE 6913. Suddenly there appeared an unearthly bright light upon which I fixated. It was so very bright but did not hurt my ‘eyes’. It appeared to be fractionated into ‘squares’ or ‘rectangles’ or approximations and the colors varied between golden and yellows. They were absolutely beautiful. It seemed that my ‘eyes’ were forward focused but my entire ‘visual field’ took all this in. There was total peace and serenity, and perhaps in retrospect: love. I did not want the spectacle to end, and it appeared to go on and on. To the end, the ‘visual field’ did not materially change. Throughout the experience, I had no awareness of my physical body.
NDE due to drowning at age 4 or 5. Shared 77 or 78 years later. Contributor is a retired physician.

3459. Rachel B Probable NDE 9/17/2013. Probable NDE 6906. From Australia I saw people around me who I knew had died, some people I knew some I didn’t, but they were a distance away and I knew if I moved closer to them I would die. There was a threshold. I was ‘shown’ a place or can I say a presence? This is very difficult for me to describe. It was a vast intelligence: a place where all that has ever been known, all things that are known now, and all things that will ever be known was present. Like a huge library of truth and knowledge. These were things known by man, but so much more was unknown to man. It was vast, endless. I thought to myself ‘no human could stand in front of this, we are too small, unable to comprehend this’. But I am here, I see this. I felt humbled beyond words.
Probable NDE and anesthetic awareness due to too little anesthetic during c’sarian section delivery.

3458. Carolyn W Possible NDE 9/17/2013. Possible NDE 6905. From Australia I think it was my spirit’s way of surviving the malaria; I had to make this journey on the spiritual level to combat the malaria on the physical level. The whole experience was hyper-real, as I have read NDEs are, and there was an overlap with that world and this, as I awoke from the coma, over days or hours, I don’t know which, I was mixing the two worlds up together.
Possible NDE vs Probable ICU Experience from cerebral malaria.

3457. Merida R NDE 9/17/2013. NDE 6904. I found myself over the Caribbean, (dare I say Devil’s Triangle?), in the ethos, and in the stars. I WAS ASKED A QUESTION. It was big, it was great, and there was no choice to answer incorrectly. I saw heaven. It was full of beautiful children, all singing like a child’s choir. All I could think of was the Holy Spirit. Later I was asked, ‘why children’, I say, ‘of course the children, the blameless, the helpless’. I had no personal choice, my answer was, NO.
NDE due to overdose of alcohol and sleeping pills.

3456. Patricia NDE 9/17/2013. NDE 6902. I remember looking at my body, looking at the entire scene and felt absolutely no connection to my body that was there on the kitchen floor; it felt as if my body was just a ‘coat’. Then something happened; everything went dark again and the next thing I vividly remember is that I was looking UP at my mother. I no longer was hovering close to the ceiling, looking down; this time I had reversed position and was looking up.
NDE at age 5 due to head injury. Shared 49 years later.

3455. CT NDE 9/17/2013. NDE 6901. All I recall is a dark tunnel with a bright light at the end. I said to someone, who I could not see, ‘I am not ready yet. I have three kids to bring up.’
NDE due to pulmonary emboli after surgery.

3454. Nurse NDE 9/17/2013. NDE 6900. I felt myself saying, ‘What about my baby?’ I felt the answer, ‘That she would have the people she needed when she needed them.’ I am hearing plastic being opened and people yelling. I notice I am standing in the back of the room and my deceased Father is there. He had been dead about nine years then. He took me into his arms, we were dancing, and he was singing to me. He sang the same way he sang when I was a child. He told me it wasn’t my time.
NDE due to complication following delivery.

3453. Petra W NDE 9/17/2013. NDE 6897. From Australia I knew if I am not going back, the body will be dead which meant that this woman cannot hide the fact anymore that she abused her children. She just could not explain this dead body that also showed wounds of the beating (clear blood under run imprints of that carpet beater). It was very tempting to give into this option as I now felt safe and good and not in fear every minute of the day. There was also another voice, another voice of mine that suggested to me to go back. Saying yes, that my life will not be the easiest for some time to come but reminded me of my commitment why I wanted to come back to earth, wanting to fully integrate with myself and experience ascension. Experiencing and expressing the magnificent being that I was in a third dimensional space. So my decision was to go back into the body of this child taking one big breath.
NDE due to beating by mother at age 7.

3452. Joan LH NDE 9/17/2013. NDE 6896. I went from being in my body to being in a place of absolute Love. I can only describe it like being in a swimming pool, but even my body was filled with this Loving. I was one with it, but also apart from it. I was still me, but I was far more than me. I was one with everything: it was ALL good. I did hear beautiful music, but it wasn’t like our music. The music itself was part of me, but I don’t think I was singing. It was more like it was just part of me and I was part of it, but it was much more than just me. I felt weightless and free: absolutely free. I was enfolded in this Loving, and was part of it, too. There was not one single part of me, or part of anything else, that was not love. Individuals did not exist in the same way as we do here. I was still me, but I was also part of The Loving. I simply KNEW things without hearing a single spoken word. I WAS love.
Exceptional NDE due to complication of spinal anesthetic. Contributor is a nurse.

3451. Nelleke N Probable NDE 9/17/2013. Probable NDE 6893. From the Netherlands Then one of them pressed with his hand on certain points of my body, as if he was repairing the body by fixing some buttons. All ‘buttons’ were at a special distance as if my body had a ‘system’ of buttons, which made it work. After this ‘cosmic repair’, I felt a very heavy pressure on my chest (re-animation?) and a strange and very quick and fluid feeling as if I was going through a tunnel of time. When I was almost ‘down’ I clearly heard my husband and a friend yelling at me ‘hold on’ hold on’ you will succeed!’.
Probable NDE associated with caesarian section.

3450. Krystal S Probable FDE 9/17/2013. FDE 6891. At that time, my sacredness went into absolute terror. I was bone chilled, blood cold scared. I was so fearful of what was in my house that I shut my eyes and thought ‘Just do what you will and stop terrorizing me’. Next, I was no longer in my bedroom quarters. I was enveloped in a white light. A white light that shone so bright, but yet is not comparable to any artificial light or light from the sun. I looked down at myself, but this was not me. I was in a man’s body, a tall lanky man. I’d estimate him to be young. The clothing he wore was a red t-shirt, denim carpenter-style, jean shorts and white sneakers. I recall a feeling of peace. I felt that the guy was me and I was him.
Probable fear-death experience associated with SOBE.

3449. Charles B FDE 9/8/2013. FDE 6890. From Canada I was seeing myself from the top of the room, from the front, three to four meters away at forty degree angle in the air. I had a full view of the room. I saw the lady behind me stand up suddenly from her desk and rush at me. She tried to get the candy unstuck. She succeeded. When the candy was free, I went back in my body. The whole incident lasted ten seconds at most.
Fear-death experience at age 5-6 associated with choking on candy.

3448. Joyce F Probable NDE 9/8/2013. Probable NDE 6888. I was connected with everyone and everything. I felt such profound sadness as the universe cried in pain after 9/11. I felt such emotional grief and compassion as it was all a part of me. I would witness my physical pain when out of body, as I did not feel pain. I did feel such empathy it was as if I was a part of the Universal Consciousness. That feeling of compassion was surreal and profound. Having many Spiritual experiences in my life, I know there is life after death. Actually, we are more alive after we die. Our consciousness never ends.
Probable NDE due to hypoglycemia and seizures.

3447. Bobbie T Experience 9/8/2013. OBE 6887. I no longer felt any pain, although I could still hear what was going on in the room. I felt as if I was going to the light and I was very happy and pain free. I heard one of the babies cry and I quickly turned my head and could see the room as if from far away, just then a male voice, over my right shoulder, said to me, ‘It’s not time yet, go back.’ It was a beautiful, kind and loving voice. Next thing I knew I had literally slammed into my body with such force and the pain started all over again. They must have given me more anesthesia as I went out completely shortly after returning… I knew the light was God. I can’t tell you how I knew that, I just seemed to know it.
Anesthetic awareness and OBE during emergency c’sarian section. Anesthetic awareness is extremely rare. Contributor is a nurse.

3446. CC Possible NDE 9/8/2013. Possible NDE 6886. Then went to the next dimension and it was a reddish lit area. Then we went to the next dimension. It was an area where they put thoughts of earth into my mind, trying to distract me from going further to the next dimension. I believe that is where people become a spirit stuck on earth if they want to go back. The next dimension was total darkness and I call that the waiting room. It is where you ask God for mercy and knock on heaven’s door. I was sobbing for Jesus and sobbing for God to help me.
Probable dream vs. possible NDE. Encounters with different realms.

3445. Sarah P NDE 9/8/2013. NDE 6885. In a split second, my friend saw me, and then I said her name as my feet, legs, and upper body swung smoothly and surely counter-clockwise to other side of wall, taking me down into the tumbling, frothy reservoir water! Now here comes the experience: So I’m down there?! I still remember clearly, distinctly, that it was like I was looking down on my body lying on bottom of reservoir and the thought I remember and only this thought do I remember, was, ‘I’m dead’. The area I was looking down at my dead body was lit! Like someone left the light on! The emotion I recall that accompanied the ‘seeing’ of my dead body was no alarm, but mere factual acknowledging I was dead. There was no fright.
NDE due to drowning at about age 17.

3444. Sandi P Possible NDE 9/8/2013. Possible NDE 6884. I remember my aunt, who had passed away, calling my name saying, ‘come here baby girl.’ I walked towards the voice down a long white hallway. I tried to turn around and all of a sudden, I was looking down on my body standing in a white room in a white dress. My body looked so flawless it was almost creepy. Everything was just so calm and quiet.
Possible NDE vs. drug experience.

3443. Avery D NDE 9/8/2013. NDE 6882. I saw a very bright light a ways away from me. I saw outlines of angelic figures. It was like they were waiting for me.
NDE due to electrocution by old (1960) refrigerator at age 9-10.

3442. Maria SV NDE 9/8/2013. NDE 6881. From Argentina. I was surrounded and flooded in white light that didn’t make you blind. The light opens our consciousness and was at the end of tunnel. The light had a telepathic voice that connected with my heart. That same voice told me it wasn’t my time. It said to me that I should go back. But I refused to go. So it began to tell me all the events that will come to my life. It even told me that I never have been in love with a man on Earth and that I should come back now so I can do that. It kept saying, ‘you have a mission to accomplish and too many things to do.’ As I was obstinate to stay and didn’t want to come to earth again, GOD in a kind of telepathy, put two pictures inside my mind. They were my children, two boys, and he told me their lives will be a disaster without my presence, guidance, and love. So, with no hesitation, I came back.
NDE due to complication of surgery and anesthesia.

3441. Ginnie E NDE 9/8/2013. NDE 6880. I was fascinated by where I was, up and suffused in a strange place that was like nothing I had ever experienced before. I seemed to have no visible body, but I was circular and I laughed, as I seemed to roll over on a face that was not there. I wanted to go, but something was behind me, some type of barrier that would not let me. Whenever tried to turn and leave, I would turn over on my seeming face and I would laugh. I think I tried to leave three times but it was hilarious that I was rolling seemingly forward. I was not afraid but a bit frustrated that I could not go. I do not know where I wanted to go, but I definitely felt that I had a destination. Then suddenly, I felt suction and everything went black.
NDE due to car crash with concussion and blood loss at age 17.

3440. Vishnu V Probable NDE 9/8/2013. Probable NDE 6879. From India. And I strongly believe I heard someone speak to me. I don’t remember what he spoke or what I heard. But that was sure. He had a firm voice of an average man in his mid-40s, he had a high base: the voice still rings in my ears but the words unclear.
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt at age 11.

3439. Amanda Possible NDE 9/8/2013. NDE 6830. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. While they were operating, I was elsewhere, in a place where there was a great bridge of light, very big, on the right-hand side. On the left there was one made of fire. Obviously, I was going towards the bridge of light. Suddenly, I remember saying to the Lord, ‘Lord, let me go back, my children are still small, at least let them be able to get a job.’ I said moreover, ‘Not my will, but thy will be done’.
NDE vs. an anesthesia experience.

3438. Kyle W Probable NDE 8/31/2013. Probable NDE 6873. The third experience built upon the other two. I found myself alone in the darkness. I was the one particle of light in the void. I became lonely and bored, so I split myself into two parts. Then I split into four parts, then eight parts, and then sixteen parts. I kept doubling myself, repeatedly, until I became everything and everyone. I came back to consciousness from being passed out in the driveway.
Multiple probable NDEs from substance abuse and suicide attempt.

3437. Olivia S NDE 8/31/2013. NDE 6871. Instead I looked forward into the expansive blue sky and felt the most amazing sense of peace. I felt wholly loved, protected, peaceful, and safe. I thought in that moment about my life and wondered why I had ever felt horror or sadness when the truth was it was so minor compared to the peace I felt at that moment. That it really never was worth worrying about. I felt there was so much more.
NDE at age 9 from drowning.

3436. Blanca A NDE 8/31/2013. NDE 6867. From the UK I have no fear at all. I can smell or sense an over-powering fragrance I never experienced before. So sweet that there is nothing that I can compare from this world. I am looking at the hills and yet they were not hills like we see here. Endless space, endless brightness, no horizon, no depth, no structure as such. It was a nothingness and something at the same time. I wanted to stay forever here. I didn’t have memories or thoughts, just sensed things. It was just so tranquil. There was lasting peace. Nothing solid, just emotions. I was lying on a bed, but it was not a bed as such, but some sort of a buoyant platform. I had no fear of anything whatsoever. On the end of my bed was my uncle standing with a walking stick. He looked exactly as I remembered.
NDE due to hypoglycemia and cardiac arrest. Contributor is Muslim from Kenya living in England.

3435. Meg C NDE 8/31/2013. NDE 6866. As I communicated with her I noticed the face of a child circulating around her head. The face was cherub-looking and glowed like the others. I ‘knew’ the child was a male, but I didn’t know who he was. After a while, (not sure how long because time had no meaning) my aunt said, ‘Tell your Mom I’m happy and that everything is good.’ As she said that, I ‘knew’ I was going back.
NDE due to sepsis. Remarkable awareness of a son that her aunt lost shortly after birth. Contributor is a nurse.

3434. Hope C NDE 8/31/2013. NDE 6865. The next thing I knew I was in a space and I felt the presence of my Father on my right. Also a male friend of mine on my left. They were both deceased. I wanted to turn and look at them, but I couldn’t. I felt calm. There was no pain. I was peaceful and wondered what was happening. All the while, I was still hearing people talking in the distance. In front of me were ten boxes in brightly illuminated colors. Each box was a different color. I would walk up to each one and it would open. I would look inside. My Father and friend stayed at my side at each one. I can’t remember what I saw, but I know it had to do with me. When I came to the last box, I didn’t want to go near it because I knew it wasn’t completed. I felt frightened of it. I stopped and it was the first time I thought about my husband, two daughters and my mother. I worried about my mother and that she was dying. I needed to be there for her. My one daughter has cerebral palsy and needed me. My husband and other daughter needed me, too.
NDE due to asthma.

3433. Morena B NDE 8/30/2013. NDE 6834. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Manuel. All of a sudden, I went out of the tire and sank to the bottom of the pool. At the beginning, I got worried. But then I felt tranquil. I saw all my life as if in a quick movie. Later, I saw a tunnel where there were lovely beings and I started to cross it. At the rear, I was seeing a light. I knew something good was there. I felt peace, tranquility, and happiness.
Child NDE from drowning.

3432. Valerie B NDE 8/28/2013. NDE 6814. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Manuel. In that moment during my flight to the beautiful city, by now it is closer, a big light salmon-color coral block falls in front of me. I flew around it to pass it and my trip continues. Once closer to the city, another block falls diagonally, like this the block was hindering my arrival to the city. It was repeated five times and every time the block was much bigger, and the city more beautiful and closer. Just when I was ready to go into the great city, a big voice, something like when a big thunder comes down and booms strongly. A very authoritarian form and sounding very loud says my name.
Several Experiences mixed together. The NDE was when she had the OBE over her body during surgery.

3431. Lisa NDE 8/25/2013. NDE 6864. From Australia. The last thing I remembered saying was, ‘God help me.’ The next thing I remember it was dark and I could see sort of figures in the dark. More like forms or outlines. I think I was above them. As I looked down, I saw what I thought at the time was someone with blonde hair. I thought that this is not for me. There is no place for me. I panicked when I saw this horrible mask. This frightened me a great deal. I felt this great fear and my eyes opened and I was looking into the eyes of my then boyfriend.
NDE associated with strangulation. Atypical NDE content.

3430. Sarah NDE 8/25/2013. NDE 6863. I felt warm and relaxed. More comfortable than I have ever been. I felt like I belonged. I saw a white glowing light surrounding me and felt as if I were floating. I was aware of other beings or souls surrounding me. I saw no bodies, nor did I feel like I had one myself, but I knew I was surrounded by familiar souls. There wasn’t one in particular that I felt like I could name, like someone from my past, but it was a general familiarity and belonging. I heard whispering but I couldn’t make out the words or the language. I was in no pain and felt nothing but love and comfort. This floating and comfortable feeling lasted for what seemed like a great amount of time until I began to hear words I could understand. At this point the only way I can describe the feeling was being forced back into my body.
NDE associated with blood loss at delivery.

3429. Loni C NDE 8/25/2013. NDE 6861. In my head, I asked, ‘What are we? How are we judged?’ In that same moment, He showed me the golden threads, interwoven, that made me, me. But that I did not exist alone. My golden energy threads extended throughout the universe, and they were not ‘mine’ at all. We, humanity, are all woven together and we are part of God’s tapestry, of sorts. (There really are no words that can adequately describe this.) In between the golden threads, however, He leaves each of us empty spaces. The way he showed me is that we can fill up these empty spaces between the weave of threads with light or with darkness during our lives.
NDE due to apparent cardiac complication of Lyme Disease. Frightening at first, but with remarkable lesson.

3428. Michael J FDE 8/25/2013. FDE 6859. As I was under water I very distinctly remember looking down at this boy and saw total panic in his expression. At that very moment a very audible calm voice said, ‘Mich’l look at what you are doing to him. Relax everything will be fine.’ The voice was so calming and reassuring that I immediately released him. Again, I heard the voice say, ‘Mich’l relax, everything will be fine.’ I no longer panicked. I no longer felt starved of oxygen. Then the water turned a bright yellow becoming incredibly clear. The whole time I felt so warm and so at peace. I was very much conscious during the event but no longer struggling. I was almost in a state of suspended animation, like everything came to a stop for that brief moment. I would say I was under for thirty to forty five seconds, still totally calm and still visualizing the bright yellow light that had accompanied the voice.
Fear-death experience at age 9 due to near drowning.

3427. Jacob H NDE 8/25/2013. NDE 6857. I remember having a strange dream. I was going through a ribbed tunnel, and then nothing. Later it changed slightly, and I perceived my body floating through the nothingness. The next part is somewhat comical. I gained consciousness when I was slid off the backboard onto the bed in the emergency room, then passed out. I woke up to several people attempting to get tubes in, and asked them, ‘Would you please stop poking me,’ and passed out once more.
NDE due to accidental narcotic overdose after surgery.

3426. Nicole Probable NDE 8/22/2013. Probable NDE 6854. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I let go and saw my body as just an envelope! My soul had decided to leave, and I ‘escaped’ through the top. The state of ‘grace’ came back. I didn’t see a tunnel, nor any ancestors.
NDE from surgery complication.

3425. Paolo D Probable NDE 8/18/2013. Probable NDE 5452. From Portugal. Original in Portuguese, translated to English by Alexandra. It was in that coma state that I had the experience of entering a dark tunnel. As I saw a distant and diffuse light, I began to walk along the tunnel towards the light. As I saw that light, I felt euphoric and I try to reach it as quickly as possible. When I managed that, I saw a wall/barrier of a fluid light, intense and very bright. I felt a huge desire to cross that barrier of light. However, I have clear notion that I felt fear about not knowing what could be beyond that barrier.
NDE from car accident

3424. Lourdes L NDE 8/18/2013. NDE 6785. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. I began to see myself regressing to the womb. In a flash, I was shrinking and returning to the maternal belly and once there I came to a place of light. With an intense yellow light. I think it was a field, but there were no plants, just a huge yellow space. This place was pleasant, fitting, and pleasurable. I said to myself, now I am home. Love was palpable in the atmosphere. All I could feel was love, so much love. A kind of love unknown to me, which I had never felt in this way. Everything was love. I thought, ‘I want to stay here.’
NDE from car accident.

3423. Mattie K NDE 8/18/2013. NDE 6853. I found myself standing in a blue channel of light. I tested myself; my body was like a hologram. My whole life replayed itself. Then I got to the end of the channel and was greeted by big group of beings (human). I knew them all, but only on that other side. When I came back I realized, I didn’t know any of them. I was given a choice to stay or go back. I was shown the place, a very, very beautiful place that will always be there. I chose to come back.
NDE due to drowning.

3422. Janice Probable NDE 8/18/2013. Probable NDE 6852. From Finland. I was swimming in the lake. I was taking my nine year old little sister on my back. My sister did not know how to swim. In the middle of the lake, my sister was scared of something. She went into a panic and began to press my head under the water. I tried to fight back. Then all of a sudden, I stopped. The water was warm and very bright. The bottom was sandy and shiny. I felt a deep sense of peace and love. I knew that my life was over and it did not scare me. I was a little bit annoyed that my life was short-lived.
Probable NDE at age 16 due to near drowning.

3421. Anthony L Probable NDE 8/18/2013. Probable NDE 6851. From Canada. Three men, two of whom I did not recognize, stood at the foot of my bed commenting, between themselves, on my condition. They had neither faces nor bodies, but they were there and recognizable as people. Then one turned his attention to me and advised me to get to the hospital as soon as I could. I should not choose to die at this point. He was the one I recognized. He was great grandfather, who died about seventeen years earlier. I had only a few brief memories of him but have had memories of even earlier events. I had been losing blood for three days and did not recognize the fact. This was the first of two such events nine years apart, both regarding blood loss from ulcers.
Probable NDE due to blood loss from ulcers.

3420. Janita Son NDE 8/18/2013. Secondhand NDE 6849. From South Africa. My son was only four when he was hit by a car. His heart stopped for a few minutes. My son told me exactly one year after the accident that he saw GOD. God picked him up and started walking him toward an open door. He then decided not to go with God.
Second-person NDE. Mother shared NDE of her son, age 4, who was hit by a car.

3419. Joseph C NDE 8/18/2013. NDE 6848. Next thing I know, I’m in a very bright, unearthly white place with literally no dimensions, only a door up ahead, and a man had an unbreakable grip on my arm, and we were walking towards this door. He said, ‘once you go through the door, you can never come back.’ All I knew was that I had to not go through the door and to do everything I could not do. He repeated himself again and again, only saying ‘once you go through the door you can never come back.’ Meanwhile, my friends were in the kitchen out of view from me, a heard me making a snoring sound, (sign of heroin overdose) and thought I was joking, until they heard me crash through her glass table. They both ran in, to see me on the floor, my face blue, no pulse.
NDE due to heroin overdose. Was given Narcan which is a medicine that very rapidly reverses the effects of narcotics (like heroin).

3418. Charles P NDE 8/18/2013. NDE 6847. From Canada I became enveloped in a white light that was calm and comforting. It was alluring, an envelope of peace and calm that allowed me to opt out of the horror of the fear of death. I realized that I was able to see my body below me in the river (floating head down). As I looked up from that view, my line of sight scanned over the beautiful landscape of the river and the woods surrounding it. It was at this point that I had a vision in real color (not infused by the white light). The vision was of a hillside with long grass blowing in the wind, I was looking from beneath the hill up to a small shack or roof made of wood shingles.
NDE due to drowning.

3417. Rhea T NDE 8/18/2013. NDE 6846. It was a BEAUTIFUL experience I remember, but I just couldn’t see who they were and why they were like bright lights. They were so calm and peaceful and stayed next to each other swaying slightly side to side. I wasn’t afraid at all… that is until I saw that they were not touching the floor. Then I remember being really afraid and then all of a sudden I was WAY UP AT THE CEILING. I didn’t know what or why this was happening. I didn’t feel any different, I felt like my normal self, but with no gravity, like a genie. I remember this so clear. I remember thinking, ‘why am I up here?’ I could see myself way below. Then all of a sudden it was like being on a fast roller coaster, I took off fast and then all of a sudden I was lying on a stretcher and they were running with me to the medical room on the ship.
NDE due to 70 foot fall on cruise ship.

3416. Curtis P Probable NDE 8/18/2013. Probable NDE 6845. I was floating in outer space with the earth below. To the best of my guess, I was in orbit around 400-600 miles above the earth. But one thing I was not aware of at the time, but thought about years later, was that were no stars. The Earth was there, though not particularly noticeable, but what was noticeable was complete and utter darkness. Not just a darkness of not being able to see what was there, but a darkness from the lack of anything being there, a complete void of emptiness. I remember floating along in orbit for a while until I noticed something coming toward me. As it got closer, I saw that it was a door, much like the door that is floating in the title sequence of the old Twilight Zone TV series. When it came to me, I knocked on the door. As it opened, this unbelievably bright, pure white light came pouring out into the darkness from inside. I wanted to go inside so bad I could taste it. I wanted to go in there more than I have ever wanted anything in my life. I remember this feeling of finally going home for the first time in my life. But then as I began to cross the threshold and enter, I heard this very loud, though not shouting, deep voice say, “No!”
Probable NDE due to motorcycle accident.

3415. Irene O NDE 8/18/2013. NDE 6843. I watched and listened to other children talking about me ‘being dead’ to their mothers. I could observe absolutely everything that was happening around me. Looking back, the strangest part was that I had no feeling about what I was watching. None at all. It wasn’t good or bad. I wasn’t happy or sad. I was just watching. Years later, I ran into a lifeguard that was working at the pool that day. I recognized him from my ‘viewing’ episode. I asked if he was there that day, told him who I was (because I was now an adult, not a seven year old girl), and he confirmed everything I asked and explained to him. He said he will never forget that day because that was his first job and he had just started.
NDE due to head injury at age 7.

3414. Patricia C NDE 8/12/2013. NDE 6841. From France. I was at the border between the darkness and the light. I needed to reach the light at the top of the little mountain as the light was receding and the darkness was gaining ground. But the nice being extended the light to cover me against the darkness, but they could not extend the light more. So I needed to move fast to stay in the lighted area. As soon as I stayed in the lighted area, I was safe. If the darkness gained on me and caught me, I would not be safe anymore, but lost.
NDE due to surgery related event.

3413. Rick D Probable NDE 8/12/2013. Probable NDE 6840. What I remember from the point that my heart quit and waking up the next day is this: I had argued with someone in a language that I’ve never heard before. (This language is important somehow.) It was a heated exchange, but not a violent one, if that makes sense. I also recall the doctor hollering out to shock me with two hundred joules, then two hundred joules again. Then the third time with three hundred joules. Obviously, I survived somehow and am here today.
Probable NDE following cardiac arrest.

3412. Carl S NDE 8/12/2013. NDE 6839. I was not in my body. I was in a void. It was completely black and I had never felt so alone. There was no floor, walls, or light of any kind. It felt like I was falling but without wind or any other senses. I reflected on my life but in a way without any images in my mind. It was self-reflection with a sort of inner dialog with myself. I have never felt so alone or disconnected. I sprung back and woke up with a doctor over me telling me what a lucky kid I was.
NDE at age 15 due to alcohol overdose. Void experience that was frightening.

3411. Karin S NDE 8/12/2013. NDE 6836. Then I saw these glistening opal-like strings being taken on task. Each connected to the person uttering the thought held by a being on purpose of connecting. I saw counter thought and the connection dissipated. There are no words. I heard several people in the building I was in ask for money. I laughed and it was loud and eternal. The surprise stopped me. There was a pause and then the understanding. I was a newbie. Then I was with others experiencing all of the cause and effect of me being my limited self in body.
NDE due to head injury.

3410. Lelei Probable NDE 8/12/2013. Probable NDE 6835. I went through a tunnel. I saw a very bright light. My deceased father was there. My father stated that he forgave me. My father passed away when I was sixteen from lung cancer. I was very mean and not understanding. I have always regretted the way I treated him. He was a very kind and devoted father. I never understood that until I had children of my own. At the time of my experience I was having trouble with my own teenage daughter. I know this was not a dream. The emotion and peace that I felt when I woke up was nothing of this world.
Probable NDE due to sleep apnea and failure to wear CPAP device (device that prevents breathing from stopping) at night.

3409. Duane G NDE 8/12/2013. NDE 6833. When I sat on the stoop of our front porch I wasn’t sitting anymore. I was standing, watching myself. I saw my mother and my sisters are running out of the house screaming and gathering all around me. I saw this car pull up and then them picking me up and carrying me to the car. All the while this woman’s voice behind me was saying,
NDE at age 13 due to blood loss from cut, and interesting dream years later.

3408. Sara G NDE 8/12/2013. NDE 6832. Without physically talking to me I could understand them all. The children kept signing me to keep going and Jesus kept extending his right hand and telling that I could stay or that could go… The two children made it very clear I needed to come back for some reason. As if almost for me to someday be their mom… For the longest time after the experience, I couldn’t understand who those two children were. Finally, later on I had my first child and she was born with blonde-golden hair. And then my second child, a son, with black hair. They looked just like the children where I landed in that different dimension.
NDE due to being struck by car at age 11. Remarkable meeting with her future children in NDE.

3407. Rhonda Possible NDE 8/12/2013. Possible NDE 6831. From the UK. I had taken two tubs of anti-depressants and slit my wrists. I could hear the voices of the doctors and then they just faded into a lower volume and they were muffled. I then felt the doctors begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation on me but it was like I was standing in a room and someone was banging on the floor causing a sound above me. I could hear my heartbeat slowing down and it slowed down a lot. I then felt myself begin to fall and I just kept falling and falling. I felt calm at the time. I wasn’t scared. I was calm like I was falling through a tunnel, a never ending tunnel. Then it felt like I exploded and I could hear the doctors around me again. I was still unconscious.
Possible NDE due to suicide attempt with anti-depressant medication at age 14.

3406. Marilyn C NDE 8/4/2013. NDE 6829. I had been traveling through a field of lights in a void. As I slowed, I could hear disembodied voices murmuring around me, and I realized I was just a glowing ball of energy, though I was thinking clearly to myself, questioning my own presence. At the same time, I understood the other voices emanated from the energies that surrounded me and they, too, were thinking similar thoughts that I could hear. As I drifted and listened to the voices, I had no sense of the past or the future, only the present. Then I felt myself physically slammed back to where I found myself in bed, hooked up to a blood transfusion in post op.
NDE due to blood loss associated with delivery.

3405. Frank R NDE 8/4/2013. NDE 6828. I felt a presence in The light. I asked the light if I was dead, and remember that I was not sad when I asked. A voice, which was not audible but which I felt, told me that I had many more years left on the earth. I remember feeling intense despair when I asked the light if I had to go back. I have a wife and two small children and I would later have a hard time coming to terms with the fact that despite this I did not want to come back. I then sensed the light smiling. I suddenly and violently woke up and was seated in my car looked at the deflated airbag and glass everywhere. I had a hard time waking up.
NDE due to auto accident.

3404. Sarah FDE 8/4/2013. FDE 6827. I remember it being very black, and then I heard ‘breathe and get out.’ I managed to get out of my car that was nose down in the ditch and stumble up the hill. I started screaming for someone to help me. My car was on fire and I was covered in gasoline. Ultimately, nearby people heard me and called 911. I had a severe concussion. I lacerated my liver almost in half, broke a rib and punctured my lung. If I had not taken that deep breathe immediately, I could have passed out, as my head already had trauma and my car would have blown up, as I was all the way down an embankment and no one could see me.
Fear-death experience with remarkable cognition prior to impact of her car during car accident.

3403. Jim T NDE 8/4/2013. NDE 6824. I have never felt such peace, calm, warmth and love in my life. There were no tunnels, bright lights or life reviews. What I did experience was a presence, which reassured me that everything would be all right. It was not a spoken voice but rather a telepathic message, which was just as clear as a spoken voice. It reassured me and put me at ease. I firmly believe it was a higher power communicating this message to me.
NDE due to severe hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) due to diabetes.

3402. Ashutosh S NDE 8/4/2013. NDE 6823. From India. I saw unearthly light. I could see myself age from a child to a teenager in a jiffy. I even saw my parents and sisters. They were laughing and I could see myself enjoying with them. I was facing a divine light and an unearthly voice was recalling me over and over again. I never heard that voice prior to the incident nor until now. The unearthly light faded away and I still remember that when I woke up I was supposed to be on my bed. On the contrary, I was lying on the ground. Devesh and two of the other friends were terrified and on gaining conscious I asked them what am I doing here?
Relatively rare non-Western NDE from Hindu in India due to accidental choking.

3401. Dr. Bell C NDE 6/30/2011. NDE 16052. I was captivated by how the cognitive experiences of our body differed from that of the soul. Whilst our body is connected to the surrounding world through the five senses, our body relies on sensory cell to detect the outside stimuli, and make the mapping to a particular group of regions within the brain where the signals were received and interpreted, such as images and smell. In contrast, the soul does not require sensory cell to connect to the universe at all. Instead, it works in a way similar to telepathy. In that different state, my vision and hearing actually followed my changing mind. In other words, I saw and heard what I thought about. I was in active rather than passive cognitive processes. My perceptions were no longer restricted by any physical object or distance, because in that state I comprehended things through its basic forms similar to energy. That was a brand new cognitive experience to me.
Non-Western NDE from a PhD Psychologist.

3400. Judith E Probable NDE 7/28/2013. Probable NDE 6821. The voice told me the pictures were to calm me since they were favorite pictures as a child. I was also told it was the process that was important and it would be good for me to meditate for about fifteen minutes daily. As soon as I was told this, the pictures disappeared and there was an immensely bright light a short distance from me. I could feel only what could be true, unconditional love from the light for me. I actually became part of the light. I felt so loved that I could do nothing to diminish this love. It was the most awesome feeling I have ever experienced. This love was not an emotion; it was a state of being. At that point, I became aware of the room, nurses, my body, and my bed. The asthma had let up and I could lay down for the first time in almost a week.
Probable NDE due to severe asthma attack.

3399. Mukurarinda D NDE 7/28/2013. NDE 6820. From Rwanda. I went and entered that room and found there Jesus Christ. He welcomed me in his office and had me sit before him while in between was a small table. Before anything, he stretched out a file with some written papers and he started to read everything I had done on earth until the time I ascended to heaven. Then He closed the file and asked me, ‘Do you agree to have done this while on earth?’ I accepted all. While reading them, it was like a video or like you are doing it that moment. There is no way to reject it whatsoever. He told me, ‘I want you to go back to earth. There is something I want you to do. After you will finish it you will come back here in heaven and live here forever.’
NDE in Rwanda at age 17 . Contributor became a missionary.

3398. Anthony M NDEs 7/28/2013. NDEs 6819. From Australia. Then I heard a male voice speaking. This voice was absolutely clear and seemed to reverberate as though I were in a sound box. Even though the voice was not speaking to me, I understood what was being said and that the information involved me. This voice was not to my left or right, it was within me. The communication was telepathic. The voice said, ‘We do not want him here yet. Send him back.’
Two NDEs, one as a child and one as an adult.

3397. Ekterina R NDE 7/22/2013. NDE 6816. From the Philippines. I closed my eyes and felt like I was teleported to another place. I saw shadows of people hovering above me and I felt like I had just been born. And they felt so familiar, like they had anticipated my coming. I didn’t know what to expect, but I wasn’t scared. A part of me was asking myself if I wanted to stay there and leave my children behind. But I thought, ‘I’m not done with my present life yet,’ and I willed myself to go back.
NDE at time of miscarriage and blood loss.

3396. Martin J NDE 7/22/2013. NDE 6813. I felt as if I was being lifted away and then I started to experience what I have come to call ‘my tour.’ I started traveling to all sorts of places. Some were familiar. Others were not. I remember them, but I have a problem clearly describing all of them. Mostly because words alone cannot adequately convey the existence of them. They were all wonderful, remarkable, beautiful, and interesting. Some were landscapes. Some were places I remembered as a child. The easiest to describe were the landscapes. There was a valley with lush mountain sides and an exceptionally spectacular waterfall. There was a lush green field with flowers and children laughing and playing. There was a beach with crystal blue-green water and blue skies with a cool breeze and gentle lapping waves. I was shown places with other stars, galaxies, and planets. I lost sense of time and space and was instantly transported from place to place.
NDE due to severe complications of cardiac catheterization.

3395. Sinder S Possible NDE 7/22/2013. Possible NDE 6812. From India. I fell, hitting a rock directly on my head. I passed out. Here is where it began. I lifted out of my body and something pushed me into a weird place. It was like a magnet pushing me there. I then saw someone who was dead. My grandfather. He said, ‘To the stars’. I got pushed by that force and fell on my knees. Free of that power, I fell into a weird city that looked like a very ruined version of earth. I then noticed it was earth. But earth during World War 3. Everything was rubble but thank God, it was only in one continent that was blown up. That was Europe. I then heard voices explaining how the savior of this event will be born in 2001 on this exact date in Canada. He too would be a Sikh. I awoke in the hospital and the doctor said that I had just died and was now alive.
Possible NDE associated with passing out at age 11.

3394. Peter P NDE 7/22/2013. NDE 6811. I remember looking out to left field from my shortstop position, and there was my grandfather (who died in 1978, but went to every one of my baseball games up until his death) walking toward me. I was so happy to see him. He was a young man, not the elderly man I knew when he was alive. He got to the edge of the grass, and the dirt of the infield, I walked toward him. He never said a word, but he was telling me to come with him. He turned back toward the left field fence and we began walking toward the fence. I asked him, ‘grand-dad, what are you doing here?’ He stopped, turned and pointed toward the pitcher’s mound. I turned and saw a large group of players, spectators, frantically running to and from there. Then I saw two blue cleats, pointed toward the sky. My blue cleats. Then like being sucked through a vacuum house, there I was lying face up on the ground with one person holding my shoulders, another holding my legs down, a woman talking at me, another man with his hands on my chest.
NDE due to cardiac arrest. Dramatic account of OBE over baseball field where she coded.

3393. Nichole S Probable NDE 7/22/2013. Probable NDE 6810. I decided to take the whole bottle of pills and then I went to my room. I went to bed. I remember this long tunnel full of brightness. I was drawn to the light like a magnet. I knew I wasn’t in my body but I couldn’t see anything about myself. I just knew I was floating. As I got closer to the light, I saw a small group of people standing on my right. They were dressed in long white gowns. A male stepped forward with brown hair and these piercing blue eyes. He said ‘you have to go back. We’re not ready for you.’ Then I sat up and it was morning. The first thought I had was, ‘There is a God and he loves me.’
NDE due to suicide attempt at age 15.

3392. Tonja BB NDE 7/14/2013. NDE 6806. I had a fallopian tube rupture with e-coli bacteria built up in it and I went septic… I died when I went into emergency surgery… The light was so very bright but did not cause me discomfort. Matter of fact, it was comforting. I was warm and happy and felt so much love. So much love! I was finally home. I asked the energy ball if it was God. They said, ‘That is a human word but if it makes you feel comfortable, you may call us God.’ I asked about the Bible, Jesus, Gay, Lesbian and well, I asked all sorts of questions and I received every answer. I asked what religion was the correct one. They told me that I did not have to choose. I think I knew at that moment that I wasn’t going to get to stay. I didn’t want to leave. They made me come back.
NDE during emergency surgery for ruptured fallopian tube. Remarkable account of her being an atheist at the time of the NDE and encountering God.

3391. Bethany R NDE 7/14/2013. NDE 6805. The first thing I noticed was a sense of pure calm and peace. I started to see people currently in my life and then going backwards into the past. Next thing I knew I went to a pure blackness. There was in an open amphitheater on the left and amazing gardens to the right. It wasn’t what I saw though it was this indescribable by words feeling of absolute peace and comfort. I looked around. There were many, many people standing all around talking in light whispers amongst each other asking, ‘What is this? Where is this? Why are we here?’
NDE due to complication of anesthesia.

3390. Les R Probable NDEs 7/14/2013. Probable NDE 6803. I recall being wheeled into an operating room for a double hernia operation. I was frightened. I recall large oval lights and about three doctors present. I believe I was crying, as this was a traumatic event. I had never been to a hospital before. I clearly recall a doctor placing what seemed like cheesecloth into what looked like a strainer of some sort. Then he began to pour a liquid into it, very strong, as I know today it was ether. The next thing I recall, I seemed to see a bright light. I had a warm feeling. I was floating above my body looking down as asking, ‘What are they doing to me’? Suddenly it seemed, I heard a deep voice say, ‘It’s not your time go back.’ The next thing I recall was waking up, having an orange type lotion in my groin area, and stitches.
Two probable NDEs, one at age 10 associated with surgery, and another at about age 15 from near drowning.

3389. Garry R NDE 7/14/2013. NDE 6802. As I passed out I exited my body and found myself floating in the center of the room. I was aware of the entire room, my stuck body, and the surroundings within and without the house. I was also aware of a sort of shimmering fog that surrounded the area and that was growing more distinct and substantial by the moment. While I felt very calm and very peaceful, I was also aware of a sense of very real urgency in that, if I did not get help soon I would not be able to get back. I was aware of my sister playing outside in the yard with our friends and I moved out through the second story window and down into yard.
NDE at age 9 due to suffocation. Interesting apparent communication with 4 year old sister while in OBE that saved his life. Remarkable observations on OBE state.

3388. SK Possible FDE 7/6/2013. Possible FDE 6798. The whole time the incredibly loud metal noise was continuing. I have never before or since felt such absolute terror. I can’t even fully explain how scared I was, and some part of me thought that I was possibly going to hell. For the record, I am an atheist, but I just felt that it had to be hell. I was in an absolute panic, and I had what I guess can only be described as a ‘life flashing before my eyes’ moment. It happened incredibly fast, and it wasn’t so much life images as it was a thought of every person I know, from my family to completely random acquaintances, and even complete strangers. I can’t remember it all and it happened insanely fast, When it did happen it only intensified my fear because I guess I took it as affirmation that this was the end and I was dying. I just had the overwhelming knowledge that I was dying and I was about to descend into hell.
Probable drug experience vs. possible fear-death experience associated with ingestion of unknown drug.

3387. Diana M Possible NDE 7/6/2013. Possible NDE 6797. I was taken to an ethereal conference room filled with Angels, Light Beings, and Masters. The oval conference table was empty. Then a white piece of paper floated down. It was empty until letters began to appear one by one on the paper with spaces in between spelling T-R-U-T-H. I was escorted back to my body. The angels said they would protect me and asked that I tell the truth. I had no idea what truth to tell or what or who they would protect me from.
Possible NDE due to suicide attempt.

3386. Shana S NDE 6/30/2013. NDE 6790. I went into a white ball of light… Brighter than the sun… A light clearly of mystical or other-worldly origin… I encountered a definite being, or a voice clearly of mystical or unearthly origin… I was with Jesus and He told me it was not my time.
Fragmentary description of NDE at age 8 due to accident.

3385. Kate B NDE 6/30/2013. NDE 6788. About the same time a pinpoint of light started, and I was moving rapidly towards it. I was picked up by a being of light who radiated peace and endless joy and compassion, not to my body, but to my soul. I didn’t care where my body was. At first, I could see that the being was dressed in white, but he kept getting brighter and brighter. It seemed we were going up, but we stopped, and it was a gray area. God wasn’t in the gray place, but God was everywhere else. We left there, and continued moving into the brightness above.
NDE due to severe illness.

3384. Scott S NDE 6/30/2013. NDE 6787. My entire life passed before my eyes-every single moment. It was also extremely peaceful and calming for me. I felt no pain whatsoever despite being severely beaten. Despite the beating, the near death experience was a very positive experience and only reinforced my belief in the afterlife.
Fear-death experience due to criminal attack. Life review while fighting off his attackers.

3383. Norina S Possible NDE 6/22/2013. Possible NDE 6783. From the Philippines. Ahead there was a ‘place’ of light or a glow of very cool unearthly colors, like a shade between yellow or gold or pale pink but nothing like any color I know. The light was bright but not glaring, enveloping but with no heat. Events I cannot understand were going on too fast. It was like I was going through or flying past them, and I am like I didn’t want to go through that. I felt a ‘presence’ with a voice, but not really a voice. Somebody was leading me through that tunnel of light to get out of it or into something.
Probable anesthesia experience vs. possible NDE during emergency c’sarian section.

3382. Judith Possible NDE 6/22/2013. Possible NDE 6782. I was in awe that I could see how everything looked from that perspective. The night stands, the alarm clock, the chair, the entry to the bathroom. Then I felt myself turning to the doorway of the bedroom and slowly floating out into the hallway and down the hall all the while very close to, almost touching, and the ceiling. At the end of the hallway, there was the front door to the left and the den to the right. I was still marveling at how I could see everything from up there.
Possible NDE at time of severe flu.

3381. Mandy FDE 6/22/2013. FDE 6780. In a second’s time, my fifteen years of life flashed before me as in a newsreel. Every single event from birth to present. My friend was able to stand, kept yelling for me to swim, and was holding out her hand to grab me. After going down two or three times, I was given the blessing of reaching her hand. We walked out of the water and I laid down and cried my eyes out because I knew I had nearly drowned. I had been fearless. I never lost consciousness. I was aware of every moment.
Fear-death experience associated with near-drowning at age 15. Shared 54 years later.

3380. Sharlene F Possible NDE 6/22/2013. Possible NDE 6778. From Canada. The next thing I remember is, I was hovering above the bed, way above it, higher than the ceiling. The room was filled with a bright, bright light with a pinkish hue. The light was brightest above me. I was floating. I could feel my whole body floating, not a feeling like an image, but actually floating like in water. I was looking down and I could see myself lying flat on my back and my husband still sitting up in the same position. He hadn’t moved and I can remember thinking how on earth could he be so nonobservant with all this going on! I remember continuing to look down and hearing my mum’s voice above me. She had passed away in March of that year. She said, ‘it’s not time yet, you have to go back for Gareth and Damian.’ (My two sons who were young but not living with me.)Those were her exact words. I remember them clearly to this day. Next thing I remember I was back in my body and awake.
Possible NDE associated with left chest pain.

3379. Bolette L NDE 6/20/2013. NDE 5437. From Denmark. Original in Danish, translated to English by Runi. Everything was sharper and I could focus on it when I wanted to. Colors were clearer and vibrant. My field of view was all around. It was so beautiful and all the colors were unearthly beautiful. I was so happy and calm during all of my near death experience. I have hearing loss in my life, I did not have that in death, and I could hear much better than ever in my life. I had no trouble with my hearing; the sounds were beautiful and melodic. The conversations I had with others did not take place with sound, but rather with telepathy. I was completely filled with emotions, such as great joy, deep, deep love, comfort, gratitude, freedom, ‘EVERYTHING is as it should be’ feeling. All is well feeling.
Amazing NDE where she met her future son.

3378. Luri HD NDE 6/16/2013. NDE 5445. From Brazil. Original in Portuguese, translated to English by Alexandra. . I felt that I left the body and was moving through the road, not walking, just sliding through the road as if I floated. As I knew about the existence of other ‘dimension’, I knew that I should look for the ‘light’. I slid many meters (about 500 meters) when, suddenly, I felt a strong light behind me.
NDE from car accident.

3377. Doc S Possible NDE 6/15/2013. Possible NDE 6777. There was the seeming appearance of a glittering, draped, flowing black dynamic tunnel of sorts. It led to a yellow bright light. As it approached, and the light fell at my feet, I felt the pain in my head relieved. I saw no one and heard nothing. I felt a very satisfying feeling of well-being. As soon as this happened, I sensed in my mind, as if I was asking myself for some reason, ‘Well Doc, it is up to you.’ I felt that the meaning was whether to enter the light or not. I reflected very briefly, and ‘said’, ‘not now. I have a very ill cancer-ridden wife who needs my help to survive and depends on my daily nursing.’
Possible NDE due to poisoning by monosodium glutamate.

3376. Karen R NDE 6/15/2013. NDE 6776. Eventually, sooner or later, who knows when, we came to an area that was filled with what appeared to be many church pews filled with people praying. My guide/angel told me these people were all praying for me. At that time, and I don’t remember exactly how I knew, I became aware that some/most of these people praying were not currently alive. I did see some people I recognized from my life that were still alive. I truly felt those prayers as a very strong force right then and there.
NDE due to auto accident.

3375. Beverly S Probable NDE 6/15/2013. Probable NDE 6775. The next thing I saw was a man with shoulder length hair dressed in a white robe. Our eyes met and we communicated to one another through our thoughts. During this encounter, I experienced such joy and elation, unlike any I had ever had before or since. We were in the clouds the entire time. Then, he conveyed the message that I had to go. I longed to stay there with this individual. In the next instant, I felt as if I were falling.
Probable NDE due to smallpox at age 6. Shared 54 years later.

3374. Lauren NDE 6/15/2013. NDE 6774. I remember nothing other than flying out of body through the top of my head. I floated around for a bit, everything was blue and was I unsure where I was. I looked down at my son in his incubator and remember thinking ‘Am I dead? If I am dead, it’s okay because the baby is alright.’ (I later saw my son’s picture from the same point in time it matched exactly what I saw, even though the incubator was on the other side of the curtain.) I floated out of the hospital and remember looking at the yellow bricks outside.
NDE due to blood loss during c’sarian section delivery. Contributor is a nurse.

3373. Rachel NDE 6/15/2013. NDE 6770. From the UK. I remembered the complications of her birth and struggled to recollect the outcome that she had survived. Once I had remembered, I immediately answered the voice and said ‘No, wait, I can’t go now’. The voice immediately replied in an urgent almost forceful tone ‘Then you HAVE to wake up’. The commanding tone of the answer resounded in my head and I started to look around in the darkness for any slight change from the blackness that might indicate a way back to the operating theatre.
NDE from hemorrhage after emergency c’sarian section delivery.

3372. Marilyn B NDE 6/15/2013. NDE 6769. I did have a kid’s version of a life review as I remembered to say the prayer the nuns had taught us to say at death—my life review was of only happy memories, but I watched them play out. The one in particular I remember seeing was of being four and in the kitchen while my Mom baked cookies. All the details were very clear including the smell of the cookies and the joy in the kitchen. All of this happened in time speeded up. It was light underwater when I surrendered to dying. My body stopped struggling and somehow I was able to float up to the top of the surface and crawl out of the pool.
NDE due to drowning at age 10-11. Shared 50 years later.

3371. Rita NDE 6/15/2013. NDE 6768. I appeared in another place that is hard to explain, floating in a different universe with tall beings (10 ft.) angelic-like not human-looking and very kind. Then I was floating or flying in front of my father who was running fast from the softball game, he looked very scared. I’m now looking down all I see is people huddling over me.
NDE at age 8 due to fall from tree with head trauma.

3370. Viola NDE 6/13/2013. NDE 6751. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon. Suddenly, there was a flash like a camera-flash. Never had I felt so good, no pain and I seemed to be floating, it was as if I was not ill, no pain and no nausea. Everything around me faded out and I seemed to be in a park which appeared very familiar, time slowed and distant voices could be heard as if shouting technical terms. Meanwhile, I wandered slowly through this park which seemed endless, feeling a warmth in my chest which grew stronger when I saw Ana.
NDE from reaction to chemotherapy.

3369. Greg A NDE 6/9/2013. NDE 6764. I saw the most brilliant light and felt the most loving feeling coming from the voice of a figure in the light. It was a friend who had died in June of that same year but that was not the only voice I heard and felt – there was another voice that told me, ‘Son, it is not yet your time to go, there is still something left here on earth for you to do.’ The voice of my friend told me, ‘It is so beautiful and loving here, but you can’t come in yet.’ I saw a few other figures in the light. To me the light was so peaceful with so much love that I can’t begin to tell you how I felt.
NDE due to drowning.

3368. Bernardea NDE 6/5/2013. NDE 6723. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Simon. I was ‘told’ in a telepathic way, ‘You cannot die, and you haven’t yet seen this street’. And I was teleported above a great bridge. My perception of colors and the wonder of the world was increased. I was opposite a little street going up past a restaurant called ‘Rhul’. It is true that I did not know this street.
NDE due to allergic reaction.

3367. Deborah W NDE 6/4/2013. NDE 6758. I could hear medical staff saying they lost me two to three times… It was like a huge cathedral and I knew I had to stay there and watch my operation with my mother. She was sitting on a settee dressed in a beautiful off white gauze skirt and over blouse… I knew the magnificent healers, there were four, and were not to be reckoned with! They were there to help the doctors keep me alive only.
NDE due to ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm.

3366. Vido NDE 6/4/2013. NDE 6754. I vividly recall my life playing as if it was a video before my eyes in vivid detail. I can remember staring at my graph on the defibrillator monitor as my birth experience played out and I remember that female voice as she looked down on me while the delivery team resuscitated me and brought me to life. I had this feeling of sorrow and yet inner peace knowing that I may be dying. I always believed in an afterlife and was not afraid. I blacked out and came to as I was being rushed down a hallway into the trauma unit.
Two experiences. Probable NDE at birth, and NDE vs fear-death experience when accidently shot in chest with staple. Interesting life review during second experience with awareness of his own resuscitation at birth.

3365. Karen FDE 6/4/2013. FDE 6752. That’s when I saw my life flash before me, from when I was young on up. I also saw my grandfather standing by me with the same smile he always had. He didn’t say a word. He had passed years before. I felt such utter peace, serenity, and tranquility like never before. I felt a perfect warmth, like I was totally safe and taken care of. All was perfectly ok. I felt total calm, like never before.
Fear-Death Experience due to near hit by lightning.

3364. Jack Ketamine 4/13/2013. Ketamine Experience, OBE 22855. I sensed a presence to the rear right of me and I could see a winged creature with a dragon/lion-like face similar to those seen in Asian art and architecture. It was flying around, coming closer to me in the void I was floating in. I felt a strong energy and my brain was buzzing on the right side. It came close to me and landed on the right side of my head. Suddenly I felt I was being sucked downwards, and I had the sensation of falling. I began coming over the crest of a waterfall and falling down, only the waterfall was made of thousands of nooses, turning and twirling around.
Ketamine experience. Excellent example of how ketamine experiences are radically different from NDEs and STEs.

3363. Pierrette Possible NDE 6/3/2013. Possible NDE 6734. From France. Original in French, translated by Marguy. I was clinically dead for twenty seven seconds. I was raising and there were plenty of people around me making faces. Then a huge hand took me and I went up at top speed. And there they told me: you have to pray for Isr’l. I’m believing, but not practicing. I woke up while still praying.
Several deaths, but only one Probable NDE.

3362. Irene NDE 6/3/2013. NDE 6728. From Argentina. Original in Spanish, translated by Manuel. All of a sudden I was inside a tunnel, dark and starry, like the sky at night. At the end of it there was a light, but not white. It was colorful, like all the colors of the rainbow. Something was pulling me to the light. When I finally arrived and went through it, I saw shadows without faces. They were talking to me telepathically.
NDE suicide attempt.

3361. Anthony N NDE 5/26/2013. NDE 6749. The next thing I remember is going through the tunnel and sitting on G-d’s lap. He was sitting on an overstuffed chair. He had his arm around me even though I was tiny and He was huge. There was a blinding, bright, white light behind Him. He was wearing a white robe. He had white hair. He was talking to me without moving His lips. He was telling me that I had to come back, that it wasn’t my time. He said that I had stuff to do, and things to experience. I didn’t want to leave, but didn’t protest. I was feeling the most intense love I have never felt before or since.
NDE due to antidepressant medication overdose in suicide attempt at age 15.

3360. Michelle P Probable NDEs 5/26/2013. Probable NDEs 6748. I could see everyone around me, many doctors and nurses, and I felt at peace. When I woke up, I was told I was very, very sick and they had to get the infection under control before they could do open-heart surgery. I had surgery march 28th. During surgery, I felt my dead father’s presence, I felt at peace, and I knew I would be ok. The thought that I had was that my father wanted me to be ok to take care of my mom.
Probable NDE due to respiratory arrest secondary to complications of MRSA infection.

3359. Kale M NDE 5/26/2013. NDE 6745. My spirit then moved to the east window and I could see the car race north to the hospital. While everyone was rushing about me, my spirit was at peace, calm, and somewhat curious. As spirit, I had no legs, but that caused no panic. I was flying and that caused no panic. Everyone else was going nuts and that caused no panic.
NDE due to seizure secondary to encephalitis from German measles at age 7. Shared 53 years later.

3358. Laura NDE 5/26/2013. NDE 6743. When I ran out of strength to fight, I said to myself, ‘he is not going to let me out. I am going to die now. My life is over. What about my mother? What is she going to do? What a terrible scandal, why is this happening?’ Then it was over… Although I was not looking at the water because my head was pinned down and I was obviously unconscious, the light was drawing me to it. I felt an overwhelming sense of calmness and a release, and felt so free to escape that way. I was seeing visions of shimmery dark figures in the distance, but could not make it out. But, I felt that at this time, it was where I was supposed to go. As I began to get closer and feel more and more love, I felt my hair being pulled up. A voice that said ‘Oh no,’ or ‘uh oh,’ or something, and before I knew it I was conscious again.
NDE due to drowning.

3357. Susan T NDE 5/26/2013. NDE 6740. When my heart had stopped and I became aware of ‘getting the hell beat out of me’. It was the nurses doing chest compressions. Then I heard a female voice saying ‘her face is white, her face is grey.’ I saw them put three tubes down my throat. They looked black to me at the time, but, upon waking in my room, they were the typical opaque white tubes.
Apparent awareness during resuscitation from cardiac arrest due to surgical complication and an OBE later.

3356. JB Rene A NDE 5/26/2013. NDE 6739. From the Philippines. It became my companion as we traveled a very vast green meadow. As we traveled further, I sensed there was a festival along the far horizon. I couldn’t hear sounds. I could only sense what was happening. I felt joy. My whole being was so peaceful. I didn’t even know what pain and sorrow were anymore. I didn’t have the correct adjective to describe what I felt. The light started a ‘conversation’ with me. It wasn’t audible but I could understand the words he was saying. He was speaking to me through my mind. I can still clearly remember his words. ‘Be humble. Say this words three times. Pray as simple and short as you will. ‘Have mercy on me, a sinner.’
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

3355. Patricia H Probable NDE 5/26/2013. Probable NDE 6737. Three angels hovered together at the foot of my bed. Beautiful is not a powerful enough word to describe them. Many years earlier, I had studied scripture of angels telling us they existed, created by God to watch over everyone, guarding, and these were for me! Their faces were bright but my vision seemed hazy. They never spoke but they covered my soul with their presence, enveloping my entire body with love. God had inaudibly spoken to my spirit revealing that Ron was with Him in heaven. I was soooo jealous! I wanted to go to heaven, too… After a three-year recovery, I realized my purpose after the accident in God’s eyes was different from the world’s view. I was to tell everyone to be of good cheer. There is a God and heaven. I’ve been there and my purpose is to tell you about it.
Probable NDE due to overwhelmingly severe injuries in motorcycle crash.

3354. Judith W NDE 5/26/2013. NDE 6736. I had a Block and an Episiotomy. Then everything was black. I was sliding down something like an auger. I felt comfortable and warm. I had no pain. I was sliding down to the very brightest light I have ever seen. It was comforting. I was not frightened. On my slide, I saw a cameo-like face of my baby, then my mother, then my husband, and then my dad. They told me it was too soon. It was too soon to leave. You have your baby, I thought. I was smiling. I kept sliding to the light.
NDE due to hemorrhage following delivery. Encountered living people during experience which is very uncommon.

3353. Jeffrey S NDE 5/26/2013. NDE 6733. From Canada. When I sat down, I looked to the aircraft now about fifty feet away from me. The cockpit windows were level with the ground so I could see into the cockpit when I sat down. To my almost horror, I saw the captain’s seat upside down and an arm and leg dangling from it! I knew at that moment I was looking at myself… They looked at each other with a weird look and said Jeff, can we bring in the helicopter pilot who found you and rescued you? I said, ‘yes of course.’ I shook his hand and they asked me to briefly share my story again. When I did, the helicopter pilot started to cry. He said Captain, when I found you, you were hanging upside down in your seat and you did not exit the aircraft… The thing that still no one can answer is why they found fifty four blood-soaked paper towels strewn all in front of the aircraft, with a trail leading to the edge of the tree line as I explained.
Remarkable NDE with unexplained phenomena. We have never encountered an NDE like this, and have no explanation for what is described.

3352. Adele P Probable NDE 5/26/2013. Probable NDE 6731. I was aware of my deceased mother and father. They were in a dim gray light. My mother was in front of my father and she was wearing her hair and clothing the way women did during the World War II. My father was behind her but he looked like he did after he had surgery for head and neck cancer. Much older than my mom looked. My mom smiled at me and lifted the palm of her hand as if saying, ‘Don’t come.’ My dad gave me the ok sign he always did when I did something to please him. Some moments went on and then they disappeared into the gray light. The next day I was taken to the hospital and the emergency room doctor told my daughter that I was very, very ill and might not live. I was hospitalized for fourteen days. It took me eight months or so to fully recover. After that experience, I was not and am not afraid to die.
Probable NDE due to sepsis.

3351. Alan G NDE 5/26/2013. NDE 6730. From Australia I found myself sitting on this bench seat in the most wonderful place. It felt so warm and comforting yet there was no scenery, only a light fog. I saw this old man approaching me and immediately I felt that I had known him all my life but didn’t recognize him. He appeared quite old and yet I felt he was quite a lot younger than he appeared. He sat with me on the bench seat and we talked for what seemed like hours about my early life, from a small child to my mid-twenties when I married. So much of his discussion I didn’t remember about my childhood, but there was a sufficient amount that I did remember that I knew he had known me all my life. Then he talked through my thirty plus years of marriage and the death of my wife three years ago.
NDE due to heart attack.

3350. Timothy H Possible NDE 2/25/2013. Possible NDE 22850. From Ireland. I can remember looking down from the sky at my funeral. I was at peace and so calm and perfect. It was so clear and it was very bright. I was looking down. I knew all my friends and family were there that day, but I couldn’t see them, they were there in spirit. I will never forget this experience for the rest of my life and I really believe that I walked through the valley of the shadow of death and it was the most peaceful and perfect moment of my life. I don’t think of this everyday but it is always with me, it was so amazing, My mum and dad got a phone call from the neurologist and were told we have did all we can and don’t know if your son will live or die. It was a miracle for me to recover as well!
Possible NDE due to head injury.

3349. Kenneth P NDE 5/14/2013. NDE 6717. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Jean Peter. I saw pictures of my life flashing before my eyes, in a perfect chronological order. I then told myself I was dying.
NDE from allergic reaction to imaging dye.

3348. Jenny S NDE 5/14/2013. NDE 5449. From Belgium. Original in Dutch, translated to English by Garry. But I understood!! What I didn’t see with my eyes was becoming suddenly aware that I was no longer in this world; the water was such a beautiful blue, a swan was swimming there which seemed to be glowing from the inside out, it was radiant. Everything radiated an indescribable light and I was part of that light, everything was part of that light. It was a feeling of rest, love and serenity I had never experienced in my life – the feeling of fulfillment, of being complete, without pain, without a body. When I realized I was without a body it felt as if a block of granite had been lifted from me and I could comprehend my pure self. I was just a dot but just as lively and at the same time as softly radiant as everything around me. The grass was greener than green and smelled mildly wet but inviting. The trees and their leaves shimmered and the sound of the wind was as music.
NDE from electrocution.

3347. Meinhard G Possible NDE 5/13/2013. Possible NDE 5448. From Switzerland. Original in German, translated to English by Marguy. I was moving at high speed through a dark tunnel toward a strong light at the end of the tunnel. Then I floated out of the tunnel into a very bright light, which completely enveloped me. There was a feeling of great love surrounding me. While I was in this abundance of light and love, I noticed that I was standing in front of a stage similar to a stage of a theater. There were two female, angelic looking beings of light. They had bodies but were shining so brightly that I could not see their faces in detail. They encouraged me not to be afraid.
Possible NDE at time of birth.

3346. Walter N Probable NDE 5/11/2013. Probable NDE 6722. I had passed out at home and died on the way to the hospital. I was resuscitated. Then taken to the emergency room, where I had died a second time. My body started shutting down. My soon-to-be- ex was asked who she would like to perform the funeral. I was in a coma for five days before waking up and realizing where I was… I was taken into a long tunnel, but the closer I got to a light, the farther it seemed to be away from me.
Probable NDE due to cardiac arrest.

3345. Lennie K Probable NDE 5/11/2013. Probable NDE 6721. The next moment I remember my vision tunneling and then I began to see purple space and stars. If you go to Google images and type in ‘purple nebula,’ it is strikingly similar to what I saw. I don’t know what to call it, but seeing and experiencing this ‘galaxy’-type feeling was a very incredible thing. I felt calm, relaxed, and soothed.
Experience due to game of inducing unconsciousness. Many people have died doing this.

3344. Connie F NDE 5/11/2013. NDE 6719. During this time, I remember the feeling of being overwhelmed, and then complete darkness. There must have been a pause or some sort of change occurring as my feelings were very different. I was aware of being somewhere else. Somewhere not where my physical body was. There was complete darkness, but more than darkness as in absence of light. It felt like nothingness. I looked around hoping to find a light or some loving presence, but there was nothing. The most absolute nothing I could imagine. I began to panic and the fear I felt was like nothing I have experienced before or after. The realization that there was nothing there, no light at the end of the tunnel, nothing. I was absolutely alone.
NDE due to accidental heroin overdose with apparent respiratory arrest. Frightening void experience.

3343. Jiaheng I Probable NDE 5/9/2013. Probable NDE 5444. From Hong Kong, China. Original in Chinese, translated to English by Helen. I can see that the sky is very bright even though it was nighttime. A voice in my head told me ‘He/She’ is God and I could feel that He completely understands and knows my entire life. I felt that He was God, all-powerful, and that he could help me. So I started to beg him, begging him loudly in my heart, ‘Please, help me! I do not want to die! Give me one more chance for me to live a meaningful life!’ I kept apologizing to Him, apologizing for the life I had been living. I said to Him, ‘if I don’t die, if I don’t die, if I don’t die, I would, would, would….’ Then He said, ‘You would go to church, yes?’ I immediately agreed, as I felt my heart about to stop, and my eyes shutting, I felt that in 3 seconds I would leave this world, 3, 2, 1. Suddenly I felt strength in my body. My eyelids lifted with ease, circulation returned to my hands and feet, and my body started to get warm.
Probable NDE from an atheist who met God.

3342. Kristen L Probable NDE 4/12/2012. Probable NDE 16034. I was surrounded by a brilliant light, warm and pure! I felt completely enveloped by this light. I was cocooned in it! I had been in darkness for weeks, but this light brought no pain. In fact, the very concept of ‘pain’ seemed to not exist. This idea did not occur to me at the time, of course, but now that I am trying to describe it, this seems to be the best way. All fears, all emotional and physical pain was gone. Everything felt so right, so perfect! I also just seemed to know that I was in the presence of God (or Jesus.) I remember experiencing the most indescribable joy! Of the near death experience characteristics you have mentioned, these were present: the wonderful, enveloping light, the intensely joyous emotions, my sensing of God’s presence, and finally, my return to my body. About returning to my body, I do not think I was given a choice.
Probable NDE from meningitis.

3341. Clyde S NDE 5/5/2013. NDE 6716. The sky was lavender and the fog was still lavender and swirling around my feet. I was looking around and going, ‘Wow!’ and ‘Far out! This is really cool!’ About that time, I noticed ahead of me an opening in the trees from which a lady emerged and started walking toward me. She was dressed in a lavender gown! I never saw her face, as it was sort of blanked out. Anyway, she came up to me, placed her hand on my forehead, and gently pushed me back down.
NDE due to heat stroke.

3340. Joan K NDE 5/5/2013. NDE 6715. I could not breathe anymore. I had no more pain. Everything was very calm and peaceful. Then came a light like I have never seen. The only way to explain is like being outside looking up at the sun with your eyes closed. Then all of a sudden, air came into my lungs I jumped up and out of the tub in millisecond. There was my four year old son holding the plug to the curling iron. He pulled it out. What made him know how to save his mom?
NDE due to electrocution.

3339. Frank G FDE 5/5/2013. FDE 6714. From the UK. I spent an eternity wallowing in a universe of knowledge that made me whole, connected and an integral part of everything that had ever existed, past present and future. I felt what love really is, not an emotion but knowledge and it was housed in every gene that my identity and awareness was composed of. I welcomed such a feeling with eager open arms like a long lost friend. It resonated with being back in my mother’s womb, safe and out of harm’s way and I had no cares in the world. I was surrounded by peace which permeated the very core, soul and essence of my body.
Among the most detailed and dramatic fear-death experiences that we have ever received. Happened as the result of a rock climbing fall. Also notable for more close calls with death in their life than we have ever seen.

3338. Bonnie C NDE 5/5/2013. NDE 6713. From the UK. I was fascinated to see that I was somehow poured into a corner. I could see that I was somehow fluid and I saw that I was some kind of silver-like liquid mercury, or a silver thread-like being. After hearing I had died, I said very matter of fact, ‘oh. So I died. I always wondered how I would die. But, I’m not dead. Don’t they know I’m not dead?’ I seemed to turn away and very quickly was sucked into a small tight tunnel. It was dark and I could see a small pin prick of light at the end. I was told if I am ever to speak of this then to give this message: It’s not complicated, don’t make it so. And, we have it all backwards. We don’t live and then die but we die and then live. Stop searching to answer the mystery when there isn’t one.
NDE due to shock.

3337. Robert N NDEs 1/5/2016 & 5/5/2013. NDEs 7869/6712. There is no anger in heaven, there is no hate, there is no violence but that does not mean there are no misunderstandings. Does that mean that that particular soul does not want to see you or talk to you? No, not at all, you can have the opportunity to sit with that soul and other higher level Angels to find a solution to the challenges you two may have. You can discuss and ask questions about why they may have done certain things that affected you in a dramatic way. Perhaps there is an explanation we did not see on earth that would make sense now that we are in heaven again. This may sound strange but you must remember we are not perfect and we must grow our souls to become close to GOD and to achieve a high status in Heaven. We have lifetimes upon lifetimes to learn and to grow. Unfortunately there are times when we are not able to secure this meeting since the other soul has chosen to return to earth to relearn or learn a new task.
Remarkable NDEs (3) due to cardiac arrest.

3336. Christina C Probable NDE 5/5/2013. Probable NDE 6708. From Canada. I was falling down a grey Tunnel, tried to catch myself along the walls but someone( looked like nurses) pushed me away from the walls and suddenly I felt a bright , very intense light around me, and warmth, and a feeling of love, like butterflies in my stomach, only a thousand times more intensive than like ‘being in love’. Peaceful, warm and feeling loved like never before. Then I woke up and there was a nurse sitting at my bedside watching over me. It was like I was paralyzed until the next day. Couldn’t speak but knew and heard everything. That part was a bit scary. Next day all was over and I thought I had dreamt and never talked about until I read a similar experience 20 years later. I still remember that and it helped me a lot when my husband died some weeks ago. I knew he would be in a better place.
Probable NDE due to anesthetic overdose around time of delivery.

3335. Marina R Probable NDE 4/28/2013. Probable NDE 6702. I remember the contractions all around me. I was ‘seeing’ in the darkness. I could feel my mother’s fear. I was feeling overcome by drugged sleep, and sliding and losing control going down a slippery slope. I guess that is both literal and metaphorical. I felt a sheer veil of panic. It felt like everything was moving very fast but slow at the same time. I was very aware that there wasn’t anybody there to receive me. They didn’t even see me or know I was there! I have always had this feeling I am not seen, or that they think I’m invisible. I feel/see the room along with the doctor and two nurses. At the same time, I saw my dad in joy about me. But I am in a bell jar with the feeling of being disconnected between us. Like a museum piece.
Very thought provoking pre-life remembrance and probable NDE shortly after birth.

3334. Laura P NDE 4/28/2013. NDE 6698. I felt an overwhelming feeling of love and an amazing sense of tranquility. I felt badly that I was leaving my husband behind with the kids in our cramped home in town, but somehow I knew he and the children would be all right. In the far distance, I saw a light. I could vaguely make out movement, as if there were several people in the distance. I could not make out whom they were. I was headed in the direction of the activity. I did not know how I was moving, but I was. Suddenly, I felt a crushing pain in my chest. My eyes opened. I found myself in the emergency room surrounded by medical personnel. The floor was covered with a long printout strip from the electrocardiogram machine. ‘Don’t do that again!’ I yelled.
NDE due to cardiac arrest secondary to cardiac arrhythmia.

3333. Catherine NDE 4/28/2013. NDE 6697. From Australia. After what seemed like an interminable amount of time trapped in pure fear and confusion, I heard a voice. Seemingly, it was in my head, not experienced as being outside of me, telling me that I had to make a choice about whether to return or whether to keep going. I understood that there was no coming back if I chose to go on… Now I understand that I was being shown a profound lesson. That we are not our minds; that the mind is an unconscious thing that spits out thoughts, beyond our control, just like the Buddhists explain it.
NDE due to episode of unconsciousness of unknown cause.

3332. Sandi M NDE 4/28/2013. NDE 6696. I remember the doctors and nurses rushing me to the operating room. I lay there, slipping in and out of consciousness, until I passed out. At that exact moment, I passed out. I remember seeing the doctors and nurses yelling things. I saw my husband, looking afraid. I continued hovering above my body and watched myself being operated on. Then, in a flash, I felt as though I were in another world. I was somewhere else, but I cannot explain it. It wasn’t a room, nor clouds, nor anything I can really describe. Maybe a void? Everything was white. It was not a white light, but like a white dimension, or a white realm where it was just me and this tall, strange looking man wearing a suit.
NDE due to uterine rupture around time of delivery.

3331. Kathy K NDE 4/28/2013. NDE 6694. As I watched from above, I saw what is described as ‘my life passing before my eyes.’ I had never heard this term before, but I saw every moment of my life, as if I were watching a movie. I was only seven, so there was no sin to account for, no lessons to learn, but I did see a complete life review. It couldn’t have taken more than a few seconds. My sister noticed that I had not surfaced, and had her friend Sonny jump in and pull me out.
NDE due to drowning at age 7.

3330. Harold D Probable NDE 2/9/2013. Probable NDE 22840. Then I noticed a group of people across the creek. They were older people, all dressed in white. I didn’t know any of them. Now here’s the kicker. My wife had died 2 yrs. earlier and she came from around the back of them. She came to me. I was standing at the edge of the creek. She walks to the other side of the creek up to the edge and then tells me, ‘It’s not my time. You have to go back.’ I told her I want to stay with her. Then she says, ‘Harold you have to go back, it’s not your time.’ She told me we would be together again. Then it felt like I was being sucked back, like I was dropped into my body.
Probable NDE at time he had the flu.

3329. Samantha H NDE 4/20/2013. NDE 6692. My focus was on what was being shown to me. A sort of film reel was directly in front of me but up just a bit. It was like watching an immense, very clear TV. I was watching images of every event that had taken place in my life. My entire life all in pictures. The most interesting part of it was that with each picture, with all the pictures (there were more than I could count), I re-experienced the original feelings that had accompanied each one. And this was happening all at the same time!
NDE due to severe blood loss after delivery. Remarkable life review.

3328. Teri B NDE 4/20/2013. NDE 6691. From Canada I was in labor. After twelve hours my heart stopped. I remember watching them work on me from above. After I left my body, there was no pain. I went through a tunnel at high speed. It was wonderful there and I did not want to come back. I heard a male voice telling me I had to go home and that I was needed there. As fast as I was out of my body, I was back in to it.
NDE due to apparent cardiac arrest during childbirth.

3327. Matt T NDE 4/20/2013. NDE 6689. I could feel the ‘love’ and that’s all that mattered. I was content right there! Then, just as suddenly as before, I heard ‘my’ question. I don’t recall what it was, but I felt compelled to accept. I ‘flew’ off into the darkness before me in a giant swooping action. There was ‘nothingness’, just my thoughts and me. I did not want to think. I floated there in the darkness for what seemed like a long, long time. I felt nothing, saw nothing, heard nothing. I even stopped thinking. I was, but I wasn’t. Then I heard bubbling sounds first, and then I could see red. I could taste nothing and do not recall feeling anything physically. The ever-so-faint feeling of ‘love’ lingered, but a billion times less than on the beach. It was a billion times less than near the orb. This lasted for a while.
NDE due to falling age 9. Shared 51 years later. Reincarnation imagery.

3326. Eric A Probable NDE 4/20/2013. Probable NDE 6688. From Canada. At this point I heard a fifth voice speak to me. A voice that was more powerful, even more loving and compassionate than the voices of the Angels. He lifted me up in his arms and I was completely filled with his light and his love completely. It was the most incredible feeling I have ever experienced and I didn’t want to leave. Even though I couldn’t see him I knew this was Jesus. He said to me, ‘This isn’t your time; I still have plans for you. So wake up now Eric and know that I love you. I love you so much, so wake up now.’ He kept repeating these words until I did wake up. I was lying on a bed inside a hospital.
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt.

3325. Laila NDE 4/16/2013. NDE 6670. From Sweden. Original in Swedish, translated to English by Oskar. I separated from my body and then heard unfamiliar voices telling me to go back. I also saw a bright light further away. After around thirty seconds, I came back. I heard ordinary voices and could feel my body again. I was back to the strong labor pains.
NDE from reaction to laughing gas (nitrous oxide).

3324. Fatemeh D NDE 4/14/2013. NDE 6685. I had two failed brain surgeries, one on 01/12/2013, and the other one year earlier on 01/25/2012. The night after the second surgery, the nurse inserted a needle into the intravenous line in my neck (I don’t know why the line she used was connected to my neck vein instead of my hand) to inject something that she later said was an anti-inflammatory medication. My husband was in the room. He reported that I said, ‘I am dying,’ and then had a violent convulsion, and passed out. I remember seeing myself dead. The image I saw looked like a pencil sketch drawn by a child. Then another sketch appeared, right beside the first one. In this one, I saw myself starting to breathe again. I said, or thought, to myself, ‘I am not dead.’ My husband says I only passed out for a few seconds. The ‘pictures’ of me that I saw are as vivid in my memory now as they were that night. And something strange: I didn’t feel scared, just sad, when I thought I was dying.
Brief NDE due to loss of consciousness accompanied by a convulsion lasting a few seconds following the injection of an anti-inflammatory after brain surgery.

3323. Shar B Probable NDE 4/14/2013. Probable NDE 6681. I remember waking up absolutely furious that I was still alive, yet very appreciative of the beautiful day outside. Over the next few months, the experience came back in bits and pieces. The tunnel, the light, the being that told me that this was not the first time I had opted out of this lifetime. Twice before I had come to learn the lessons I had chosen, but ran from them in suicide. I was told that they would accept me with love, but if I was smart I would go back and learn those lessons! I chose to come back, I guess. I’m here forty three years later.
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt.

3322. Chad C NDE 4/13/2013. NDE 6679. Ahead of me were… people? I couldn’t see them but felt them ahead of me, past the cliff. The ‘light’ was out in front of them, so I could only make out forms, like silhouettes. There were many of them, like a crowd that was shoulder to shoulder. I remembered something about my grandmother, who passed in 1999. I don’t know if she was there or if maybe I was looking for her. As I was on the cliff, still heading toward the group, I came to understand that the group was trying to tell me to go back. I didn’t make a conscious effort or decision to go back, but I remember the group getting further and further away from me. I then began to sense my body again, as if I were in two places at once. The darkness was starting to fade, and I felt I was returning to my body
NDE due to cardiac arrest as complication of apparent chronic cardiac arrhythmia.

3321. Miles NDE 4/14/2013. NDE 6678. From Scotland. It was Christ. Standing, in a robe, with his arms raised to his shoulder height and straight out. He was smiling a smile expressing peace and love. He was dressed in white and although the cross he stood in front of dominated him due to its sheer physical size, it did not appear to intimidate him in the slightest. Rather, it made him appear very confident. He appeared to be implying that as he had overcome that which was behind him, that I too had the strength to overcome whatever might be behind me during my prior life. He was about five foot ten, and I guess about a dozen feet in front of me.
NDE due to hypothermia. Dramatic account of approaching death and apparent remarkable healing after encounter with Christ that allowed her to hike miles to safety.

3320. Caren M NDE 4/14/2013. NDE 6677. They did not speak in words, I just knew this to be. It was like telepathy, but more direct. I also remember a large circle, but I do not remember what its purpose was. The next thing I knew my friend was shaking me and slapping my face. I remember that I could hardly breathe or catch my breath, and I was afraid I was going to die again. I felt sheer terror like I have never known, and never want to feel again, but I do not remember why. It feels like either I was not allowed to remember or I can’t because I won’t let myself. At that point, I was at the end of her relative’s driveway lying by the road. She said to me, ‘I thought you were gone.’
Frightening NDE due to unconsciousness of unknown cause.

3319. Peter L NDE 2/4/2013. NDE 22837. From the UK. After some seconds I felt weightless and was floating. I then heard a voice calling me saying, ‘Peter.’ Then she called me again a bit louder. I asked her ‘Is this it? Is this what happens next? She then said to me, ‘You can come with me now Peter. Everything is going to be fine.’ I looked for where the voice was coming from. Then there was a great white light in front of me. She then called me again saying, ‘Peter everything is going to be fine, you can come with me now.’ I then said, ‘No I have to go back.’ She said, ‘Why do you have to go back?’ I said, ‘My wife was on her own.’ She said, ‘Then it’s fine, she will be okay. Don’t worry.’ I said, ‘No, I have to go back. She is on her own and she needs me.’ Then the light faded. I was coming around and came back to consciousness.
NDE due to severe nosebleed, then passing out at hospital.

3318. Liz T NDE 1/14/2013. NDE 22836. It had been my turn to ‘try’ the game, so I had spun around and held my breath while a friend squeezed me. My next memory is of being high above the group of children, higher than the tree, looking down on them. I could see one girl lying on the ground and the other children standing around her. There was no emotion connected to the experience. It felt totally natural to be in that state, and I did not recognize the child on the ground as being myself. My next memory is of ‘waking up’ on the ground, feeling slightly sick to my stomach and very dizzy.
NDE due to induced unconsciousness from childhood ‘game’.

3317. Dominique V FDE 4/7/2013. FDE 6648. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Simon Then I had a strange turn and I left my body. It was as though I was snapped up and over the roof of the car into an immense and serene light. I began to rise above the car, which continued on its way at a good speed. At this point, the road had a slight bend and I said to myself, ‘Hey, the car hasn’t turned enough, that’s weird!’ At the same time, I felt as if I was flying. It was nice and enjoyable.
Fear Death Experience from an auto accident

3316. Liam O NDE 4/7/2013. NDE 6674. From the UK. It felt like I was drifting off somewhere and I remember this incredibly calm, euphoric feeling coming over me. Then my whole life. Every single second, flashed before my eyes at what seemed like light-speed, but I still was able to comprehend everything. Not just every event, but every interaction I’d ever had. I saw how my words and actions had affected the recipients and what they had thought of me, good or bad. After that, I started drifting off into this dark void and my euphoria turned to abject terror as my mind turned to thoughts of annihilation, drifting into this darkness, as if I thought the lights were going to go out for me permanently.
NDE from drowning at age 12.

3315. Brendan F NDE 4/7/2013. NDE 6673. From the United Kingdom I found myself outside of my body, standing about three feet away from the pushchair, looking at myself lying on the ground. Then I watched my brother and sister run into the shop to fetch my mother. My mother came rushing out of the shop and when she saw me lying stationary on the ground, she threw her arms into the air and ran back into the shop to seek help. Within a short time, one of the workers from the shop came running out with my mother, glanced down at me and then ran back into the shop to reappear a short while later carrying a large bandage. He then picked me up, placed me back into the pushchair, and started to wrap the bandage around my head. It was at this point that the experience ended.
NDE at age 2 ½ due to fall with head injury. Shared 52 years later.

3314. Annette Q NDE 4/7/2013. NDE 6672. From Ireland While this struggle to get my body to respond was going on, I was watching them from above. I saw the doctor leave the operating room to go and tell my husband that it was all over. Meanwhile, I was experiencing an indescribable feeling of unconditional love and felt surrounded by the purest white light. The peace and love in which I was engulfed was simply too vast to be described in words. What I really wanted was to get lost in this peace and love. But, instead, I asked God, (an awesome presence that surrounded me) to let me go back. I said, ‘I have to go back, my baby is just over one year old and my other two daughters need me. I cannot stay here now.’
NDE due to cardiac arrest due to seizures as a result of an adverse reaction to medication which was part of treatment for tetanus.

3313. Mary L Possible NDE 4/7/2013. Possible NDE 6676. It all seemed like it wasn’t real, like it was a movie or something. Next thing I remember is that I was being wheeled down the hallway on a gurney, and I was in extreme pain. I believe this was when they took me to the intensive care unit… There was so much noise from the code team that I was only able to hear the loudest people in the room.
Possible NDE vs. probable awareness during CPR associated with internal blood loss and cardiac arrest.

3312. Dr Sandrine B NDE 4/2/2013. NDE 6661. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marie. I saw in a moment (although time was different from how it is on Earth) my whole life, from birth to my current age of fifteen years. It was something like watching a movie, but with the addition of all the sensations, feelings, and experiences that I had lived through, including what my consciousness was like and even my ability to love others. Everything about me was present in what I was being shown. I watched this film without being able to change anything, but with no sense of judgment, no regret, and no enmity. I was perfectly ready to die… and I felt so good!!! Then a cone of white light greeted me. It was pure and intense love, peace, compassion and absolute knowledge. This cone had opened up right at the top of my head and so I found myself thus against a kind of luminous robe worn by a being made of light—a man I did not know but with whom I felt I belonged, as I had never felt on Earth with anyone else.
Physician and an Experiencer!

3311. Hilde Probable NDE 4/1/2013. Probable NDE 5447. From Germany. Original in German, translated to English by Marguy. I had an appendix operation during which I suddenly floated out of my body. I could look down at the room from above, but at the same time, I was present everywhere in the room and could see everything from all perspectives. The doctors were standing around me working hectically on me and I didn’t understand why. I wanted to tell them that I was fine and that everything was okay. In fact, I felt free of all irksome emotions! Then I was pulled along through a tunnel towards a light. It was bright and simultaneously loving, friendly and full of affection. I would gladly have continued to float along further, but a being, one that I could sense but couldn’t see, told me it was not time yet. I was given to understand that I still had some duty to fulfill and so I must go back. That was not what I wanted, but a strong suction pulled me back into my body through an opening in my head.
Probable NDE during surgery.

3310. Laurence L NDE 4/1/2013. NDE 6571. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marie. Suddenly, I become aware of a light in the far distance. I can’t see my body, but it feels just like I’m seeing with my eyes. I feel a lightness and I am moving forward. ‘I know,’ I think to myself, and as soon as I feel as if ‘I know,’ I also have this indescribable feeling, stronger than any emotion I have ever experienced. It is pure love, and I feel others around me. I can only make out one silhouette. It is my father. I ‘know’ that we are many, that I am linked to them and they are to me! I am connected to my father. It is powerful! I perceive that he thinks I shouldn’t be there, and that I am going to have to go back. I am in a halo of wonderful thoughts.
NDE from a car accident.

3309. Francine M NDE 4/1/2013. NDE 6656. From Canada. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. All of a sudden I found myself hovering at ceiling level and viewing the scene under me, but I really wasn’t very much interested in what was happening down there! I remember mentally nudging myself to ‘pay attention to what’s going on’ but then I found myself floating in a nebula of extreme beauty. I was immersed in the depths of the sky or ‘heaven’ and I felt a ‘presence’ but did not try to see it. Immediately I understood the whole universe…
NDE from anesthesia given during childbirth.

3308. Gary NDE 3/31/2013. NDE 6667. That’s when I became aware I wasn’t wearing anything and my body was emitting light, but still in human form. I also felt like I had been there before and was familiar with the place, which I thought was weird. I came to a wall where these things slid down it that looked like robots. They began melting and transformed. They brought me to a room with a being that was made of light. The room looked like it was made of glass and then a shower of light came down on me that felt warm and euphoric. The being walked to me and it talked to me through my thoughts and emotions. The being was funny and not threatening.
NDE due to passing out at age 16.

3307. Jerome D Possible NDE 3/31/2013. Possible NDE 6666. From Canada It was unlike any earthly light I have ever seen. Bright but not blinding, no heat, inviting, all-consuming but without taking away, penetrating, enfolding in the most gentle and profound way imaginable.
Possible NDE at age one due to what is described as ‘hydro-encephalitis’

3306. Hannah NDE 3/31/2013. NDE 6665. From the UK. I was surrounded by darkness. I was confused and a little scared, wondering where I could possibly be. It wasn’t the apartment block I was in before. I knew in my heart I was somewhere far away from Earth, but wasn’t sure how I got there. This place was out of the Milky Way, possibly the edge of the universe, maybe outside of it. A small white light appeared, and as I moved closer towards it, I was overcome with warmth, happiness and tranquility. There was a female voice (I believe it might have been the voice of God or Mother Nature) telling me it would be okay if I went towards it, but that I was free to walk away if I wanted, and that I would have a second chance. In that moment, I knew it wasn’t my time. I pulled myself away from the beautiful light and comforting voice, and awoke with a jump. There I was, in the back of the ambulance, and I had awoken after going into cardiac arrest.
NDE due to cardiac arrest from drug overdose. Shared four days after experience.

3305. Helen E NDE 3/31/2013. NDE 6664. I fell apparently to the floor. Immediately, I was in a realm of such unbelievable beauty. There were all the colors of the rainbow and also astounding music (I later thought of it as a difference of such magnitude as exist between rap and Mozart and Mozart to this music). Also, I was completely surrounded by absolute love and bliss. Then, I became aware that my husband was calling me as if from a great distance and slapping my face, which I could not feel. An inner voice said I had a choice whether I wanted to go back to earthly life and my small daughter and my husband or ‘stay.’ (At this time I felt, that I was going back through a sort of tunnel.) Obviously I chose the latter.
NDE due to blood loss.

3304. Jeffery O NDE 3/31/2013. NDE 6660. I left my body at the scene of the accident and visited another realm of light, where I was told by my own deceased wife that I must return to my oldest son who also survived the accident. As I returned to my body, I had profound experiences with the living people I encountered. All judgment was lost as I saw others for who they really are through God’s eyes.
Profound NDE due to car crash. Encountered wife and son who died in the same car crash (shared NDE).

3303. Michele C NDE 3/28/2013. NDE 6649. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marie. After having ‘seen’/scrolling the elements of my life (only small events that touched or upset people), I found myself at the ceiling of the operation room. I saw a body and two heads (nape of neck) bent over it. I called but was not heard. I didn’t understand anything. My body was in my head (consciousness) but my head had no limits. There was no pain.
NDE from car accident.

3302. Norbert E Probable NDE 3/28/2013. Probable NDE 6653. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I found myself in an ambiance that was neither bright nor dark. It was like what you see through your eyelids when you close your eyes in sunlight. I was not aware of having a body. I felt the presence of a being that I could not see. He communicated with me telepathically. Very calmly, he twice asked me the following question: ‘Now that you are close to death, what do you choose?’
Probable NDE due to on alcohol poisoning.

3301. Patricia B NDE 3/23/2013. NDE 6657. I experienced a profound sense of peace. It did seem as though I was walking toward a brilliant white light. A thought developed and a statement came from nowhere. ‘No, go back, you are not ready’. I do not know exactly when I passed out.
NDE due to stabbing.

3300. Karen S NDE 3/23/2013. NDE 6652. All I remember is being up above where the nurses and doctors were working on my body, and looking down and watching. But it was not ‘me’ anymore. I was floating up toward a bright light. I saw angels with wings! I never saw God, but I knew he was there. I just knew. I talked to him but I don’t know how, since I had no life form that I knew of. I begged God to let me stay on earth. I had a daughter who was just seven months old, plus I was enrolled in college and planning a future. I begged God, ‘Please let me stay! I need to raise my daughter!’
NDE due to illness three days after surgery.

3299. Chris Mother Probable NDE 3/18/2013. Secondhand Probable NDE 6647. From what she told me, she experienced the bright light and beauty and happiness like never before. She was taken on travels to other planets and other places. She explained the feeling of wanting to stay there. She had an escort, but did not think it was someone she knew in her earthly life. She was told that she would have to come back to her life on earth as she still had things to do.
Daughter shares her mother’s probable NDE account after her mother died.

3298. Elizabeth E Possible NDE 3/18/2013. Possible NDE 6646. During the second surgery, I saw a tunnel and a very bright white/yellow light. I was on my side of the tunnel and I had an epiphany about Jesus. I felt enormous love from him and I felt horribly sorry I had not gotten closer to him during my life. When I would close my eyes, I would see the white light. I felt it was God looking at me and caring for me and that Jesus was literally holding me and telling me he loved me and would take care of me. I felt safe.
Possible NDE following brain surgery for tumor (Oligodendroglioma).

3297. Jeannine M NDE 3/14/2013. NDE 6580. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Simon. Just felt myself leaving my body through the top of my head, (with some difficulty) then finding myself out of it. That is, free. Then I said to myself, ‘I’m dead. I’m going to be buried here in Sète, like Paul Valéry and Georges Brassens’ (the latter was still alive, but was buried in Sète after he died). I was all right, observing the cement paving stones on the terrace, which seemed wonderful to me, as did the sea and the sand. Suddenly I was projected towards a being of light who was not visible (there was no tunnel). He asked me (without a voice, by a kind of telepathy) if I accepted my death. I replied that my mother and my son still needed me. Then he kind of ‘smiled,’ or that’s what I felt. A slightly mocking smile which meant ‘no’.
NDE from fainting.

3296. Dharam S NDE 3/14/2013. NDE 6645. I felt surrounded by many beings. I felt my Aunt Ginny was there and possibly my paternal grandparents. I wasn’t sure though because all I could see was this incredible bright white light. I heard them say, ‘It is not your time yet, it will be ok’ and ‘don’t worry about anything… ever.’ They seemed to say this last part with such emphasis and strength that it really stuck with me. It was as if this was a message that they had to give me and that they wanted me to take it back home with me.
NDE due to unconsciousness following illicit drug use.

3295. Marta L NDE 3/14/2013. NDE 6641. From Puerto Rico. I had the most beautiful fun jumping around in the clouds. Back then, I was so overweight that when I would jump onto a cloud, I would fall right through it and land on the one below. While this was happening, I was screaming like a kid in an amusement park! I felt so much joy, it’s difficult to explain! Then all of a sudden, I felt as if a giant vacuum cleaner was sucking me down from the clouds. I fell a very long way and crash-landed. Before I opened my eyes, I thought, ‘If this is dying, dying is marvelous!’ The happiness I felt in my chest was so great that I felt as though I were drunk with joy. And very silly, too!
NDE due to allergic reaction.

3294. Joan S NDE 3/14/2013. NDE 6640. There was a tunnel with a beautiful light at the end it. I went toward the light and discovered a beautiful landscape with extraordinary plants and trees. I was so happy! I stopped to consider what would happen if I chose to stay in that place. How would my husband take care of this new baby and his three-year-old sister? He had just started a new business and didn’t have time for family. I knew I needed to go back and take care of my children. So I did. I didn’t see any humans there, or hear any sounds. But I knew everything. I realized that if a God existed, he was within my spirit.
NDE due to bleeding after delivery. Shared 55 years later.

3293. Corey L NDE 3/14/2013. NDE 6639. The entire time I was with my family I could feel their love. It was like a warm feeling all over me. I suddenly felt like I was on a moving platform and I saw Jesus! I knew instantly who he was, although he didn’t tell me. He was dressed in a white robe. His presence felt warm and I could feel love coming off of him. Jesus said I should go back to the living and live my life. Jesus vanished and God appeared to me. She was bright and I felt her love immediately (and, yes, God is a female.) She looked like the sun, with love coming off of her in rays. (It’s hard to explain, but she reminded me of a painting of the sun I had seen when I was very young, with light shining from the center of her body.) She hugged me and then suddenly she was gone.
NDE at age 10 due to drowning.

3292. Todd N NDE 3/14/2013. NDE 6638. Within seconds, I was out! ‘Out went the lights’ for me! It’s hard to explain what transpired next, but I was above everyone, like, say, ten feet or so, looking down. I didn’t notice whether ‘I’ had a body or not. What I saw was like the view from a camera. I could see and hear them laughing, standing around me. I could see my body actually lying there on the road! But I wasn’t in it! I felt no pain whatsoever. Actually, I felt great! I was just in awe of seeing myself and trying to figure out how I got outside of myself. Trying to figure out why I and was able to see everything unfolding from a viewpoint above everyone! Then, poof! I was back in my body and awake. I felt refreshed and slowly got up off the hot road. Most of the kids were still just laughing at me. I’m sure they didn’t realize how you can easily die within seconds from the technique that was used on me.
NDE at age 14 due to choking.

3291. Robyn NDE 3/14/2013. NDE 6636. I became one with all in existence, yet, I had a firm knowing that I was me. All was okay, all was love, the purpose of human life is solely for experience and expansion. I was one with the doctor, the nurses, my Mom down the hall, the equipment, the sound of the flat line, and all the space in between. I could have raised the doctor’s arm up if I wanted to. But here’s the important thing: I had zero desire to manipulate his free will. None. But I knew I was capable of controlling the entire situation, it just wasn’t in my best interest for me to do so. They were me and I was them.
Profound and exceptional NDE due to overdose of anesthesia. This is a must read!

3290. Maya Probable NDE 3/14/2013. Probable NDE 6635. From Indonesia. I was still feeling so calm, relieved, relaxed, and joyful during this ride. I remember thinking this was so much better than a roller coaster ride. I used to feel afraid of heights, but I didn’t feel that anymore. After a while, I was mesmerized with the beauty of our galaxy. It was so colorful and bright. I looked around me. I didn’t see anybody at all, but I heard a voice. It was a soft, soothing voice that said that it is not my time to come home yet. I argued with that voice, saying that there’s no way anybody could bring me back to the planet earth. I wanted to stay. But that soothing voice kept saying, ‘it is not your time, go and have fun.’
Probable NDE due to auto accident at age 17 in Singapore.

3289. Joseph S NDE 3/14/2013. NDE/Shared Death Experience 6634. It was if I had been living in a dark room and suddenly the lights came on. That’s the best way I can describe it. I know that I observed a whole lot while I was there, but the only thing I can remember actually seeing were ‘souls’(for lack of a better term)separating from the Light and traveling to the earth to inhabit human bodies(earthly birth). There were also souls leaving their human bodies(earthly death)and returning to the Light. I didn’t see them actually entering or leaving their earthly bodies. I just knew this to be true. They appeared as orbs of light. The best way to describe it is blips on a radar screen.
NDE due to unconsciousness associated with marijuana use. Remarkable ADC as a shared death experience with her grandmother.

3288. Toma S NDE 3/14/2013. NDE 6633. When we were finally in the hospital I died. I was dead for a total of six to fourteen minutes. After they brought me back, thanks to shocks, they had to have me on life-support for a few weeks. When they brought me back and the nurse asked me what happened with the medicine patch I had, I told her I ate it so I would fall asleep and never wake up. I wanted to be with ‘them.’ I still don’t know who ‘them’ are. I honestly don’t think anyone does. I actually remember part of my ‘dream’ from that day. I was talking with someone. She was tall and beautiful, and she was warning me. She said they would bring me back and eventually I would understand.
NDE at age 3 from suicide attempt.

3287. Janie Anesthesia Experience 3/14/2013. Anesthesia 6631. From the UK I was having my tonsils out and I woke up in a theater, feeling myself drop my Rupert Bear cuddly toy. I was then looking down on myself from a panoramic angle. I was floating. I could see tubes going up my nose and then out of my mouth, but there was no pain. I could see my face and also the insides of my nose almost like layers. The doctors and nurses were all fussing and then one of the nurses put my Rupert Bear back under my arm.
Anesthesia experience at age 4.

3286. Michael E NDE 3/2/2013. NDE 6628. While passed out, I found myself flying into puffy clouds that were in a vividly blue sky, and then I was at the ocean near high cliffs. I also remember feeling complete bliss. I did not have to worry about anything anymore! Then all of a sudden, I felt like I was being pushed back into my body.
NDE due to passing out upon realizing that wife had died next to him in bed.

3285. Kenya Probable NDE 3/2/2013. Probable NDE 6627. Then, as I looked to the left, I saw this long, arched, endless, golden gate. Behind it was a light. Such a bright light!! Then he spoke, GOD, that is! He said, ‘Kenya, it’s not your time to come home,’ and immediately I was pulled back out (as if by a magnet,) but then I found myself walking, or gliding, down a red-rock pathway. On both sides of me were the most beautiful mossy, grassy valleys with streams, and trees bearing fruit! Weird. All of it and all the colors were like pregnancy dreams or being in Disneyland. Every color was tuned to its fullest potential!
Probable NDE associated with surgery.

3284. Thomas A ICU 3/2/2013 & 3/24/2013 & 1/14/2013. ICU 6626/6658/6561. I woke up after I went down at the gym to the sound of screaming of the hospital staff and watched a saw cutting my ribs apart. I felt it all and heard it too. I felt myself drifting away as if I was riding on air. I felt and overheard everything that was said for hours in the operating room. I found myself walking down a roadway of smooth cut stones. I came to a gate that was made of gold. It was open, so I walked in to see my Grandfather Tom leaning on a wall. He called me over and smelled of gasoline. He was wearing a work shirt from his gas station. He told me, ‘Tommy don’t go down there!’ I looked and saw the worst thing I have ever seen in my life. There were many people being bitten and beaten by demons with large teeth. The screams were so bad that I can still hear them today. I turned back to my right, walked back through the gates, and walked on down this long road made of smooth stones. I listened to beautiful music but kept walking away. I awoke to see my wife crying and the nuns praying and crying also.
Anesthesia experience and probable ICU psychosis due to dissecting aortic aneurysm.

3283. Nerka E NDE 3/2/2013. NDE 6625. I never lost my hearing. I could hear every word the nurses said. I heard them say that my blood pressure was going down to eighty over sixty, and that they were not able to start an IV because my veins were collapsed. I heard the doctors screaming about losing a patient. In my mind, I was going down a dark tunnel. I saw many pictures of myself from my childhood to that present moment in the operating room. Then I was ‘above’ my body, looking down on myself. I also saw several nurses and two doctors from above. After that, I was ‘back.’
NDE due to complications shortly after delivery.

3282. Colleen J NDE 3/2/2013. NDE 6624. From South Africa. I died twice (clinically) during surgery to remove tumor from behind right eye. I still have burn marks on base of my spine from electric resuscitation… I have no direct recall of the death during the surgery, but afterwards while recovering in the hospital ward I was haunted by an image and memory that I tried to capture in a drawing with color crayons. I tried to draw a tunnel of light that was colorful. I knew with certainty that I could not take my body through the tunnel. I called the ‘place’ I had experience ‘home’ and was homesick for the next twenty years. Even though I was very young, I remember very clearly looking at my hands and feeling that my body was strange to me, compared to the expanded peace and being awake that I felt myself to be. When it was time to be taken home (after lengthy recovery) I recall my mother driving us to our house and feeling sad that this house was not my real home. I was left with deep questions, a passion for seeking wisdom and truth.
NDE at age 4 due to complication during surgery.

3281. Julie G NDE 2/25/2013. NDE 6622. When I stopped I felt exceptional love and joy that is indescribable. I heard a male voice asking if I was ready to move on. I did not see anyone. When I answered, I thought it was strange that we were talking without me moving my mouth. It was as if it were telepathic. I said I wanted to move on but I hadn’t seen or held my baby. I wanted to know if it was a boy or girl. He said I had a son. I was overwhelmed with the feelings I felt enveloping me. I thought about my child not knowing how much I loved him- how no one else could watch out for him. I struggled with wanting to move ahead and wanting to go back. I made the choice to go back. It was the hardest decision I have ever made.
NDE due to complications around childbirth.

3280. Joey W Probable NDE 2/25/2013. Probable NDE 6618. There was nothing to see but a soothing, enveloping light. Not bright, but soothing. The only sound I heard was of my Nonnie.
Probable NDE due to ruptured brain aneurysm.

3279. Chris Probable NDE 2/25/2013. Probable NDE 6616. From the UK. I saw a car approaching us on a fairly straight stretch of road. Then I became aware that I was somewhere else. It was as though I ‘looked up.’ The environment was dark; there was no noise or vibration. Everything was calm and non-threatening. I would say that I was ‘there’ for a very short period. I was informed later that this ‘area’ was possibly ‘The Void…’
Probable NDE due to auto accident.

3278. Sheryl NDE 2/25/2013. NDE 6615. It was beautiful! I was free from troubles, and I felt the love and acceptance I always searched for in my world, from friends, family and boyfriends. Now it was everywhere, inside and outside of me. It was everything, and I was part of it! For my whole life, I had missed it so much! What I felt, I had ached for and now I had found it again! It was so encompassing and accepting. There was true love everywhere. I wasn’t talking, but I could hear all of my revelations. I marveled that I was okay, I was loved and that I was perfect just the way I was!
NDE due to car crash.

3277. Shannon C NDE 2/25/2013. NDE 6613. I want to say this was the Garden of Eden, the way God intended it to be. It was too beautiful for words. I had that feeling you get when you see something truly amazing, breathtakingly beautiful. I miss it. Anyway, there was a figure who came from one of the mountains. He glowed like white golden light, very warm and peaceful. When he got closer, I knew he was Jesus. He still had holes in his hands. He told me I still had a job to do.
NDE due to pulmonary embolus during surgery. Shared about five weeks after NDE.

3276. Yves F NDE 2/25/2013. NDE 6612. It was more of an interactive adventure. If I talked to someone, then something else was experienced. It was like feeling their memory of that experience very deeply and in every way possible.… It is like plugging your brain and emotions into another’s and feeling thing together. It is beyond talking about feelings entirely… I did give you the most important aspect of the experience. God is love.
NDE due to cardiac arrest with remarkably long (45 minute) arrest.

3275. Milo N FDE 2/29/2012. FDE 22813. I also had time to see everything around me and take it all in, each amazing detail. I saw the back of my head for the first time in my life and was irritated at how my part looked. I saw little spots of dirt back in hidden hard to see areas of my car, where only something as small as a fly could get. That irritated me because I took great pride in a clean car. I saw and memorized every detail in the fields and ditches around me. I was totally calm seemingly uncaring if I lived or died. But obviously, I lived. Somehow, I kept the car on the road. As soon as the car was safe, I was instantly back in my body. When I got home, I got two mirrors (I swear first time ever) and looked at the back of my head. It was parted exactly as I saw. I took a small mirror and flashlight out and looked for those small hidden areas of dirt. They were exactly like I saw them. I again drove out to the corner and all the surroundings and gravel were just as I saw.
Fear-death experience at time of near car crash.

3274. Kelly C NDEs 2/16/2013. NDEs 6611. All I remember is a paramedic saying, ‘Kelly, stay with us!’ over and over again. Then I saw this tunnel with a bright light and I walked through it and on the other side, I saw my late grandmother and God, all in white, glowing. My grandmother turned to God and said, ‘She isn’t ready to come in here.’ God said something, and I woke up in the emergency room. I turned to my dad, who was sitting beside my mom on my right, and I said to him, ‘Dad, Grandma says she is okay, and to stop worrying about her, she is fine.’ Dad was in tears. I went home the same day, which baffled doctors and nurses. I said, ‘I’m fine!’ and I left the emergency room. I said, ‘I’m hungry,’ so we went to McDonald’s and I got a double cheeseburger, fries, and a milkshake. I was fine after that. When I got home, I asked, ‘What happened to me?’ My mom said, ‘You were dead for forty-five minutes and that nurse was yelling at me about you.’ They had to use the paddles on me, but nothing worked; that’s what my Mom said.
Three NDEs due to allergic reactions to medicine.

3273. Brian T Probable NDE 2/16/2013. Probable NDE 6609. From Australia. As I came closer, I was overwhelmed by the feeling of pure love, understanding and compassion which emanated from this wondrous entity. This was by far the most wonderful and powerful feeling of my experience. Nothing can truly describe it. This glorious, wonderful entity recognized me, understood perfectly every minute aspect about me, and poured love into me. The love was real, as much a force as a feeling, and immeasurable. Knowing every little thing about me and my life and viewing it along with me, there was a lot of real amusement. This being has a personality. It is fun to be with, delightful, and it has a sense of humor.
Probable NDE due to illicit drug use. A remarkable and detailed experience that almost certainly was an NDE.

3272. DPH Probable NDE 2/16/2013. Probable NDE 6605. From the UK I floated downwards into a huge cavern filled with many people. It was a network of caverns, I suppose, with lots of people either huddled together or waiting by graves for something to happen. The sensation was not unpleasant, nor was it pleasant. There was a feeling of expectation. Everyone was waiting for something to happen. The time aspect was the most interesting. It was like there was just the ‘now.’ As a theologian, the experience was in keeping with my philosophical cogitations regarding the afterlife, but it conflicted sharply with the teachings of my faith (I am a lifelong Catholic.) The experience reminded me of what I had read in philosophical texts about Sheol. The only thing that was different was the presence of huge bronze embossed doors. I knocked on them, but I woke up or came to, before they opened. The physical sensation was one of being wholly within a single space, not functioning through a body.
Probable NDE from a theologian.

3271. Ken M NDE 2/16/2013. NDE 6604. From Ireland. There was a warm glow of light about me, and about the place where I now was. The feeling of great personal peace was beautiful and unforgettable, although unexplainable. Even now I cry when I talk of it (as I am now), because maybe I should have gone there. I was in a relationship with Patricia, a widowed lady with four children. I am now married to her. I loved her very deeply. She did not appear, nor was I aware of her influence on me, but I really wanted to go to this beautiful place. Somehow, I was made aware that someone I loved would need me, and I had a choice. I did not know it was her, but I chose to come back.
NDE due to unconsciousness from apparent blood loss.

3270. Uma A FDE 2/16/2013. FDE 6603. From the UK. I was a newly qualified driver and I misjudged a tight bend in the road. I careened into a signpost, but righted the car instantly. At the exact moment of ‘the point of no return,’ time felt like it substantially slowed down or perhaps stopped. As a result, I was able to assess the entire situation and adjust my steering. I took control of the vehicle immediately after the collision, which had knocked the signpost clear across the road.
Fear-death experience immediately before the car accident.

3269. Ancient Iranian NDEs 1/28/2012. NDEs 16021. Ancient Iranian NDE motifs, which were woven into eschatological/mythic narratives.

3268. Darlene M NDE 2/15/2013. NDE 6579. From France, Original in French translated to English by Jonathan. It was as if all the alarms in the world were ringing at the same time, all inside of me. And then, at the far end of the tunnel, I saw a luminous point which was approaching at a very high speed. I began to feel very sure of one thing. ‘If you cross into that light, you will then be dead.’ At the same time, I was in a state of total happiness and high excitement, and inside me. I was repeating this phrase over and over: ‘This is it! I’m going home!’
NDE from childbirth complications.

3267. Khanh V NDE 12/7/2012. NDE 5436. Originally from Vietnam. I saw the Jeep in the moonlight turning off its lights and escaping from the scene (hit and run). The villagers tried their best to revive me, saying, ‘Mister, you can’t die! Do you hear us? Come back! Come back! Don’t die!’ Their voices were down there on the ground while I was high in the air. I was like in ecstasy and did not want to come back to my body. I forgot to say that a brief and distinctive review of my life, with complete details, was shown to me as soon as I came out of my body, but I was sucked back down into my body and heard the villagers’ voices, now above my face.
NDE from being hit by a vehicle (Jeep).

3266. Patricia GB NDE 2/12/2013. NDE 5435. From Brazil, Original in Portuguese translated to English by Luana. There was sort of a ‘conversation’ without words between me and (I don’t know who) about my return and at that moment MY FREE WILL was absolutely clear to me. My strongest sensation during this experience (which must have lasted four minutes, which was, according to the medical chart, the length of my cardio-respiratory arrest) was that I was in a MOTHER’S LAP! It was like I was being held, taken care of, by a mother that tranquilizes you, holds you, and protects you. It was soft, comfortable, and full of light and love. Everyone present (the light-beings) had respect, love, care and compassion for me and I felt the same for them, even though I didn’t know who they were.
NDE from childbirth complications.

3265. Gustave P STE 2/9/2013. STE 6600. The soul, or our consciousness, is in all things and is all things. I wasn’t seeing, so much as I was being what I wanted to perceive. If I wanted to look at a pine tree, I wasn’t actually ‘seeing’ the pine tree, I was or became the pine tree—from whatever perspective I chose to observe it. I could either see it as a tree or know it at the molecular level. Since I was also the tree, there was no limitation to my ability to ‘perceive’ or ‘know’ the tree. In fact, this is a better way of putting it. The soul (or the nub of consciousness that we become one with when we leave our bodies) doesn’t ‘see’ things, we ‘know’ things. If we want to see a pine tree, we ‘know’ it. We don’t ‘see’ it, as on earth we do with our eyes. Also, concepts like ‘near’ or ‘far’ are meaningless to the ‘soul’ because we are one with all things and all things are one with us. We see distant things with the same perfect clarity as nearby things, because there is no such thing as near or far. Those terms are only used to refer to the position of earthly things relative to each other.
Profound Spiritually Transformative Experience (STE) while in an altered state at age 11.

3264. Anthony A NDE 2/9/2013. NDE 6602. Then I remember seeing a beautiful unexplainable whiteness, like an explosion of beautiful bright white. The best way to describe it would be a bright white light, but it wasn’t a light. It looked like many, many beams coming from a small center and just exploding into pure white. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I couldn’t hear anything, but I felt warm, comfortable, happy, peaceful, and excited. It was like a kid just about to open his Christmas presents multiplied by millions.
Two NDEs. One due to a truck accident and the other due to apparent complication of a spinal injection.

3263. Oakland NDE 12/15/2012. NDE 22806. When I was six years old, I was hit by a streetcar while crossing the street. After I was hit, I felt very warm all over. I remember that it felt good, and I even wanted to stay cuddled up to the streetcar! Then I was standing off to the side and I saw the streetcar driver looking out of his window down at a clump of clothes. I did not realize that it was my body. I saw many people running over to the clump of clothes. A man in the crowd picked it up, and they all ran toward the school. Someone told me I should go with them. (I believe God or my guardian angel told me.) Then I was right next to the man carrying the clump of clothes. I don’t know how I got to where the man was—I was suddenly just there, next to him. The next thing I remember, the first grade nun had her arms around me and I was crying into her dress. She was telling me that I was all right.
NDE at age 6 due to being hit by streetcar. Shared 68 years later.

3262. Silvia Probable NDE 2/5/2013. Probable NDE 5438. From Portugal, Original in Portuguese translated to English by Luana. I remember my parents, during their many visits to the intensive care unit, talking about whether I would be cremated or buried. I was angry and didn’t want to come back. I was at peace in the light and I would only come back here occasionally to see how things were going. I hadn’t seen any tunnel or barrier this time but went straight to the light and what I call the ‘all-or-nothing.’ I never actually ‘saw’ anyone because people didn’t have bodies or shapes. Everything there was the same as it had been the other times I had been there.
Probable NDE from drug overdose.

3261. Elena Possible NDE 2/5/2013. Possible NDE 5425. From Russia, Original in Russian translated to English by Jim. I exited out of my body from my ribs, around my solar plexus, and moved in the direction of the left corner of the ceiling. I saw myself in the form of a small pink cloud, not completely rounded, but a little flattened at the top and bottom. The cloud was alive and moved a little. Its form changed a little but its dimensions remained the same. There was lightness, something like bliss, which is difficult to describe.
Probable Anesthesia Experience vs. Possible NDE. Distinct OBE, but no clear imminent life-threatening event.

3260. Tyrone NDE 2/4/2013. NDE 6597. I then went through a tunnel at warp-speed and saw the most amazing light. I knew it should have been too bright to look directly at, but I was looking at it without pain. I felt so good that I thought, ‘Wow, this feels sort of like when I broke my leg playing football and I got a morphine shot!’ Then I was all the way through the Light and my best friend, who had been murdered, was there, and my grandma, too. Both talked to me and told me that I needed to go back to my body and not ‘home.’ Then I realized, ‘Wow! This is home!’ My grandma said, ‘You have such a lovely wife and child, and you are such a positive force in a cold world. This is just too soon.’ She even called me by my old nickname. My friend told me I had much more to give and I would change more lives for the positive than I could imagine.
NDE from being shot.

3259. Wendy B NDE 2/4/2013. NDE 6596. I was above my body and could see very clearly. I could see all the doctor and nurses working on me. I knew I was going to die. I felt no fear. I was very safe, peaceful, and warm. I saw a light and wanted to go towards it and I did not feel like I was alone. I was feel conflicted. My son was a few miles down the road at the other hospital and coming home soon. He was very sick and had a life of health problems. My conflict was who would care for my son? My husband was so young and immature. I was worried. I was then pulled back into my body.
NDE due to bleeding after delivery.

3258. Belle J Probable NDE 2/4/2013. Probable NDE 6591. My recently deceased uncle was standing on the other side of the door, reaching his hand out for me through the upper part of the Dutch door. I remember that his extended hand was shaking, beckoning me. He desperately wanted me to grab his hand. He was smirking or had some awful mean expression that was horribly frightening to me.
Probable NDE due to blood loss following surgery. Highly atypical content.

3257. Keith M NDE 2/4/2013. NDE 6589. From Australia I was accompanied by four Manatees. They were guiding me downward at about a forty-five degree angle toward a large black wall. There were two ahead of me and two at my sides and were gently guiding my way. I then observed that they were also not rising to the surface to breathe. As we approached the wall, an aperture, (which resembled the iris of a camera,) began to open to slowly reveal a bright, warm, white light. The light began to grow brighter and warmer as we approached. As the light began to engulf my gentle companions and me, I grew more comfortable and relaxed.
NDE due to bleeding after coronary artery bypass surgery.

3256. Nancy Probable NDE 2/4/2013. Probable NDE 6587. From Australia. I felt like I left my body and followed a long, dry river bed. Although there was no water in the river bed, all around was very lush green grass with a beautiful array of flowers with splendid colors. There were large shady trees of all sizes. I began to climb higher into the sky and then into space. I was looking down on earth. Then there was a bright flash and all went white. Out of this whiteness came human figures.
Probable NDE at time of delivery.

3255. Laura L Probable NDE 2/4/2013. Probable NDE 6586. At the end of the tunnel there was a man standing there with open arms. He had longer hair and was wearing a white gown. He had the most peaceful look on his face. He was definitely not of this world. I felt so welcomed by him. I was quickly approaching a barrier, almost like an invisible wall, that once crossed I would not be able to return. Someone to my left was motioning for me to go back and the closer I came to the barrier the faster he motioned for me to turn around. Then he floated out in front of the man in the light and said to go back, it was not your time but when he said this, it was almost as if it was telepathic, because I could only hear it in my head. It was my grandfather that had passed away almost seven years earlier.
Probable NDE due to accidental narcotic overdose at hospital.

3254. Donna S Probable NDE 2/4/2013. Probable NDE 6585. But then, I began to see the brightest, whitest light you can ever imagine. I felt angels were lifting my shoulders, as if guiding me upward. Although they were supporting my shoulders and were somewhat behind me, I knew they were angels. I could see (even though I wasn’t looking directly at them) images of white beings. It was a feeling of just knowing they were angels. I quickly said a prayer to God. Although this happened twenty-four years ago, I still remember it as if it just happened yesterday. I remember the exact prayer I said. I said,’ God, I know I just delivered a baby, but whatever you think is best, I’ll do. I put my life in your hands.’ I let go. The feeling I felt was so peaceful, so floating-like.
Probable NDE due to childbirth complications.

3253. Peter N NDE 2/4/2013. NDE 10105/6584. From Scotland. I transmitted (communicated) my thought-feeling sense of reverence and thankfulness to this being. It was not necessary for me to do this, as it already knew. It did however thank me for this with more love, which I knew it would not have withheld anyway. I surrendered myself to this being, I wanted to be open to this being, I wanted to be so close to this being forever. We united in mutual love. I could not begin to describe the comprehensiveness of this union. There is no union like this in ordinary existence between people on Earth. This is love expressed with no barrier of any form between the direct experience of the love of the other which is now not other. The sensations generated by union in this condition are beyond belief in their scope and in their subtlety. Again it is only describable by metaphor.
NDE due to motorcycle accident. Among the most transcendent NDEs ever reported to NDERF. Very long account, but a must read!

3252. Grace NDE 11/19/2012. NDE 22800. I experienced the scene as if I were sitting upright, a little to the right and behind my body, slightly lower on the rise. I could hear everyone, and see the scene from the vantage point of one sitting up. I was concerned about not being able to make my body work. We waited quite a while, my fiancé speaking to me and me not being able to speak or move. I vaguely wondered about why I was unable to make my body function, and I think the idea of being dead may have been distantly entertained, but my main concern at the time was not being able to make my body work, not feeling connected to it and in control of it. The idea of being dead was curious, not especially frightening.
NDE due to auto accident.

3251. Rosa M NDE 2/3/2013. NDE 6578. From Argentina. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Manuel. I walked towards the light, and the closer I got, the better I could see some interesting people there, who seemed to be illuminated by a light that was coming from behind them. I was just getting to where the people were standing when I saw them stepping aside to the right and to the left, revealing a person who had in his arms a bundle wrapped in a little sky-blue blanket. That person was Jesus! I was sure it was him! He had light brown, almost blond hair, a red tunic, something like a sky-blue cape and he was wearing mustard-color men’s sandals. He was not barefoot.
NDE from labor complications.

3250. Portia NDE 2/3/2013. NDE 5434. From Germany. Original in German, translated to English by Aylin. Somehow, I knew what was happening. I thought, ‘Oh, you are dead now’, but I felt fine, although not euphoric. I turned to my left and saw the light it was very bright, and beaming toward me. The areas around it looked dark and empty. Only one area was bright. Leaving my body on the operating table, I moved up to the light. I’m not sure how, but I have the feeling I walked, or maybe I was pulled towards it.
NDE from surgery complications—a collapsed lung.

3249. Kathleen A NDE 1/27/2013. NDE 6581. My attention was then brought to my left side. I looked, and it felt like I was looking from inside my body. There I experienced pure black velvet, the texture of pure. Peace that had the feeling of pure black velvet. The shape of the black velvet tended to be somewhat like a tunnel, but not so clearly defined as a tunnel. I then continued to ‘soak in’ all the textures, and peace, and calm and contentment. I was soaking it all in. It was still like there was no time. And then I felt something grab my hair on the top of my head and I was pulled from the space I had been in.
NDE at age 8 due to drowning. Shared 68 years later.

3248. Sharon A NDE 1/19/2013. NDE 6576. I found myself immediately ‘flying’ over a green valley surrounded on both sides with high mountains. This landscape has always been one of my favorite and where I would escape to when life got rough. I enjoyed the freedom of fast movement but before I knew it, I was waking up on the couch with the paramedics coming in the door.
NDE due to pulmonary emboli.

3247. Helga C NDE 1/19/2013. NDE 6574. From Germany. I was out of my body and fully conscious. I could hear what everyone was saying during my operation. I was above my body and also in the wall. I felt that I was in the whole room at once, the whole clinic, even the whole world! Then there was a peaceful silence, and I felt very well. A tunnel opened up and I could see, feel, and smell a loving energy. All was love. This seemed to last a long time. Then, two days later, I awoke from a coma.
Retired physician describes NDE during surgery following car accident that involved CPR being given. Shared 47 years later.

3246. Trevor O NDE 1/19/2013. NDE 6573. When I passed out (I can’t say whether I stopped breathing or not) I saw only darkness. Absolute darkness, and from a basic knowledge of different cultures, I quickly realized that it was the ‘void,’ or the ‘abyss.’ As I came to that conclusion, several hooded beings of an ethereal-looking faded sepia color appeared. There were at least three or four of them on my left side and I believe the same amount on my right. For some reason I focused more on the beings on the right side. (When they came to me at first, my rational thoughts quickly told me that these were just my friends. I thought that they had realized that I had passed out and were surrounding me. However, it turned out not to be them.) The beings stood around me, paused a bit, and then began to lift me up into a tunnel of light. At first I felt content and sufficiently warm in this void-darkness.
NDE following passing out after sustaining a deep scrape to a toe.

3245. Tommy P NDE 1/19/2013. NDE 6572. From Colombia. It happened at night. After a few hours in a blackout, I saw myself flying in the sky. Then I was inside myself, flying, and I began to see things on the ground below. From, like, four hundred feet up in the air, I saw streets, I saw a soccer field and a basketball court, and then I saw the hospital. I was very familiar with the locations of all these landmarks. Then, from up there, I saw a blue car, an old Dodge Dart taxi, driving up to the entrance of the hospital.
NDE at age ten from falling off a bike and hitting his head on the pavement.

3244. Nurse NDE 1/19/2013. NDE 6570. I found myself in the desert. It was night and the sky was blue/black with millions of stars, a dirt road, and an ‘adobe’ type motel. No one was in sight. There was an overwhelming sensation of contentment, peace, love, that everything and everyone I loved was fine. This sensation was so powerful that I know I will never feel it on earth. I was in a triangular motel room with another middle aged woman and a child about ten years old. We went out onto a patio and in the night sky was what looked like a train moving up into the sky. People were running to get on the train. There was an incredible light shining from this train. It was white and incredibly bright but I could look at it without difficulty. I knew I was supposed to decide whether to get on the train or not. I was undecided and immediately the nightmares started again. After some time I wished I could have that ‘dream’ again and immediately I was in the desert again. Exactly the same circumstances.
Experience due to infection and kidney failure. Initially frightening ICU experience and later NDE vs STE.

3243. Carol V NDE 1/14/2013. NDE 6567. My grandfather’s soul greeted me on the other side, where I encountered many other souls, entities, light beings, and angels. I had experiences and visited realms that were unlike anything within our human contexts. I recognized great masters such as Buddha, Krishna, and others whom I have no names for but were perfect beings while on Earth. I experienced light beings who were ‘knowledge’ and gave me answers to all the questions of the universe. It was universal truth and knowledge. I experienced Christ, and finally I experienced total and complete and perfect light, love, joy. The God Consciousness. I understood how we are all part of this amazing frequency that is God’s resonance. I was told it was not my time to stay and that I was being sent back to my twelve year old body.
NDE at age 12 due to hypothermia.

3242. Claire B NDE 1/14/2013. NDE 6564. Next I was in a strange, unearthly city. There were three young women, about ages nineteen to twenty five, who were very beautiful and glamorous, as I always wished to be. They stayed with me. I did not question their presence, who they were, where they came from, or where I was. We did not speak, although communication was perfectly clear. I was filled with a longing to be beautiful. It was my greatest wish in life because I thought if I were beautiful, I would be loved and wanted. They asked me what I wanted and I told them this. They took me across the city to a white building. We went in, up a long, winding staircase to a large loft full of light. A man came in, waved his hands around me, and made different motions, speaking aloud almost to himself. It was my understanding that he was transforming me into a physically beautiful woman.
NDE due to suicide attempt.

3241. Michael G NDE 1/14/2013. NDE 6563. I can’t describe the landscape in detail. I only recall a jumble of images, but I was aware of being on the shore of a sea with a view of a landscape with green hills. I understood that I was on a continent that was extensive. I became aware of a being who was ‘speaking to me,’ telling me that I had to travel to various regions of this world, perhaps by boat, and instructing me in what I would have to do at each location. I can’t remember what the details of these instructions were. I only recall the general intent. I don’t remember if the communication was verbal, but I don’t believe it was. I suspect the communication was more direct. I did not respond, I simply listened and tried to understand.
NDE due to seizure subsequent to the lancing of a cyst during a stressful time of life.

3240. David NDE 1/14/2013. NDE 6562. From Canada. I spotted an area in this beautiful world where I very much wanted to go. But he said, no, that if I went there, I wouldn’t be able to come back. Suddenly, a beautiful light shone towards us. It was a light I knew was Jesus. He told Stephen that I had to go back now. And I said, ‘No! I wanna stay!’ Jesus replied with, ‘You promised you would do this. And you have much left to do.’ With that, I was slammed back into my body and I awoke, gasping for breath.
NDE due to heart attack.

3238. Sandra P Probable NDE 1/14/2013. Probable NDE 6560. God (whom I call my Creator) told me it was not time for me to die. I had to give more love in this world… I had this overwhelming feeling of love! Not human love but indescribable love—unconditional love and acceptance! A spiritual love! Love that is combined with peace, joy, and acceptance! Truly, there are no words in my vocabulary I can use to describe this overwhelming feeling! I am not humanly capable of expressing this feeling because there are no earthly words with which to do so.
Probable NDE due to injuries from her car being hit by a train.

3237. Mona NDE 1/14/2013. NDE 6558. The last thing I remember was the driver yelling, ‘hang on!’ Then, boom. I was out. I want to say I looked at myself alone on the dirt road as the driver ran for help. I don’t think I recognized myself or cared to go back to my body. Then I was instantly flying. I was a bird, or felt like I was a bird. I could feel the air on my face while flying. I felt free and at peace. Then I heard a voice. It said, ‘Mona, you need to go back.’ I remember thinking, ‘no,’ and then before you know it, I was gasping in a big breath of air.
NDE due to four wheeler accident.

3236. Barry C NDE 1/14/2013. NDE 6557. From Canada. I screamed, ‘How could you betray and ambush me like this?! I do all of this good stuff and look what you give me!’ ‘You are a lying, double-crossing @$&%!’ I yelled, and kicked and punched and swore as best I could. I was screaming and crying, and was even mad that I couldn’t curse better. And then, as all of this was going on, I felt something like a warm hand come down and just cradle me. I screamed louder and kicked and hit, and the hand just held me. It exuded the most perfect love and warmth and softness, and absolutely no judgment. But my rage continued because now I had something to fight against and I screamed my lungs out and kicked and hit—and from the hand came a voice. It said in the softest, nicest, most honest, beautiful, trustworthy voice, ‘Barry, all you need to know is that I love you absolutely, no matter what.’
NDE due to multiple injuries as a result of criminal attack. Includes the angriest tirade at God that we have ever seen in an NDE. Stunning reminder of God’s unconditional love.

3235. Nicholas B Probable NDE 1/14/2013. Probable NDE 6556. From Canada. I was watching this from above the bedroom window. I always thought this was a dream until I told my mother about it when I was in my twenties. She told me that this is what happened to me when I was a year and a half.
Probable NDE due to choking on gum at 1 ½ years old.

3234. Colleen R NDE 11/2/2012. NDE 22787. Then nurses and doctors were rushing around, trying to figure out what my injuries were, and how to stop the bleeding. Things seemed clearer and clearer, and suddenly I found myself standing behind the doctor, who was now cutting my jeans off my body. I looked at myself, lying there, with my head busted open, my new white sweater soaked with blood and getting cut off now, too, my cute jeans all ruined. I decided I wasn’t going to stay around to help them resuscitate me, and I left. I don’t recall how I ended up back at my dad’s house. He had passed away the year before. There I was, with him, and my mom and my uncle, my best friend, my Tio—everybody that had passed away was there. But I only talked to my dad. I never accepted his dying. I missed him too much. So I was happy. I just stared at him and he seemed to glow. He looked so beautiful. But also, he looked sad. So I asked him, ‘What’s wrong?’ and he said, ‘You can’t stay.’ And I was like, ‘But I’m here, I don’t want to go back.’ And he told me to think of my kids having to grow up without me; he said, ‘Imagine if I wasn’t there when you were little.’ He’d died when I was thirty and even at that age, I’d lost my mind wishing he’d come back. Anyway, he was right.
NDE due to being run over by a truck.

3233. David G ADC 1/14/2013. ADC 6559. When he was about six to ten feet from the casket, maybe one or two people ahead of him, I saw a bluish-grey mist appear near him and just wrap around him completely. It was Michelle and she was hugging him in the only way she could… She wrapped herself around him and I heard her say ‘Oh, Uncle Dave! I love him so much! I’ll be with him forever. You have to tell him that I’ll be with him forever and how much I love him.’ There is nothing I have ever felt in my human existence that compares with the love I felt between them at that time.
One of the most profound after death communications ever reported. Stunningly detailed and evidential. A must read!

3232. George J NDE 1/5/2013. NDE 6552. I saw paramedics from above assess me. They were panicking because they thought I was deceased. From above I saw them quickly cut me out of my coat. My spirit or consciousness then departed and travelled to ‘heaven’ or a place where a being told me ‘It’s not your time yet, you have to go back and do something important’.
NDE due to being struck by car at age 6.

3231. Polly R NDE 1/25/2013. NDE 6551. ’Where is my body? What is happening to my body?’ And then suddenly, I was back in my body, lying in the middle of the road. I had studied the sciences in my youth, so I was used to being sharp-minded. I also had been an infantry combat instructor in the Isr’li army, so I was used to a high degree of alertness. However, the level of alertness that I experienced during the time that I was out of my body far surpasses all levels of alertness that I had ever experienced before that or since then; I was separate from my body, and I came to know that my consciousness has a life of its own. Despite the fact that it contradicted my previous atheist beliefs, I found out during the experience that consciousness does not depend on the existence of the body, but is separate from it.
NDE due to being struck by a car.

3230. Tamara J NDE 1/5/2013. NDE 6549. I then felt that I left this world and my body and was in the presence of God/ Jesus. It was like every cell of my being was at peace and I had the joy of loving myself and being loved the way I always wanted to be. Here my memories become jumbled like they were all piled on top of each other in a split second or an eternity. Time didn’t exist. One of my first revelations was that I was still ‘ME’. The importance of this is difficult to explain but it was a surprise to me and a deep joy. I was not a mistake and I was who I was always meant to be.
NDE due to seizure during delivery. Remarkable experience.

3229. Josef P NDE 1/5/2013. NDE 6546. From the Czech Republic. When I reached the bright light, I was immediately surrounded by this light and became a part of it. I was engulfed by the feeling of the extraordinary love. I became aware of a being which was an ingredient of the light and which was nonverbally communicating with me. During our discussion, there were no secrets, because the being knew all my secrets, in fact, he knew everything I had ever done. This is a place where lies do not exist. The being knew my whole my life from the time I was born up until that moment (every second of it!) and everything I had been thinking that whole time.
NDE due to head injury in fight.

3228. Julie H Probable NDE 1/5/2013. Probable NDE 6544. I said, ‘You’re Jesus aren’t you?’ He gave me that smile that only Jesus can give and I knew the answer without him having to say anything. We walked and talked for a while beside the River of Life. One of the many things I loved there was that Jesus and I did not verbally speak to each other. He knew and answered my thoughts without having to open my mouth. I caught a glimpse of his eyes, which he allowed me to do. They are the most beautiful color I had even seen. They are light brown with flecks of amber color that shines with love. I asked Jesus ‘what do you do here in Heaven?’ He looked at me with a humorous smile that is beyond explanation in human words. He smiles with love that comes from every cell in his being. He said ‘I do what is required of me by the Father’. I said ‘ok, so what are you doing now?’ Jesus said ‘I am working with the Angels’. He then showed me what I can only describe as an army of Angels.
Probable NDE due to internal bleeding following outpatient surgery.

3227. Dan B Grandma NDE 1/5/2013. Secondhand NDE 6540. She was falling alone in blackness but shortly she felt she was moving up a tunnel. Then she saw a beautiful light that drew her. She came to stop at a threshold of this light; she could not go through it. She felt the presence of people she’d known that were dead. She encountered a greater being, and it felt like pure love and peace in there. She wanted very much to enter. Now she became aware of three large beings but she did not see them because they were standing behind her. They told her she could not cross that threshold because she had to ‘go back’ to raise ‘the boy’. When they said this, she remembered me and agreed to go back, though she was sad to leave the lightà My father was not at the window, he was dying in the living room from ingesting 3 Phenobarbital and a bottle whiskey with Antabuse.

Near Death Experience Research Foundation-Archives 2014

3832. Fabien N NDE 12/29/2014. NDE 7502. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. It was then that a bright white light appeared. Progressively, this light encompassed the whole room I was in. I was not blinded by this light. It was a very powerful white light and I had the sensation of being in a fog. I felt good, had no pain at all. I thought, “this is death? Well, I should have died earlier!!!” Then the white light made room for a slightly pinkish light. The sensation that I felt in that light was even more pleasant then the preceding feeling. At that moment, I felt that my soul detached from my body without detaching completely. I had no desire to get back into my body. All my memories of earthly life seemed like they were being erased. I gradually forgot who I had been, who my family members and friends had been.
NDE with an interesting discussion of progression to loss of consciousness.

3831. Blaine S NDE 12/27/2014. NDE 7503. I perceived myself in a room. Kind of like some kind of control type room. There was a bunch of people waiting for me. Many, many people. The focus of all these people seemed to be on me. Some female being ran in and said to a male type being that it was not right and it was not my time. There were to females sitting next to me. I call them angels. I asked them what was going on but they only looked at me and smiled. Kind of like a smile that a mother gives an infant. They kind of told me in a telepathic way that there was no possible way that I would be able to understand what was happening but to not be afraid.
NDE due to respiratory arrest following cancer surgery.

3830. Calla G Probable NDE 12/27/2014. Probable NDE 7501. From Canada After that, during the surgery, I spoke with something. It didn’t speak in words, but it communicated with my mind, which put what it said into words. I said “I am willing to come now if you are willing to take me.” It said, “it is not time yet, you have to go back.” I remember I could not hear my baby breathing and I refused to come back unless my baby came with me and then I heard her breath.
Probable NDE at age 17 during delivery.

3829. Debbi ER Probable NDE 12/27/2014. Probable NDE 7500. Standing in my living room was a strange looking man, an Indian master-type gentleman with a turban on. He was saying, ‘No, Debbi it is not your time to go. You must stay here.’ I looked down on the sofa and saw me on the sofa, lifeless in appearance. I found myself having a pulled-back-into-my-body type sensation. He said, ‘I am your angel. My name is Babba Ji. I have always been with you and will always be with you.
Probable NDE at age 5 from Rheumatic Fever. Encounter with a Babba Ji is intriguing, but there are no other experiences posted on NDERF (currently over 3800 NDEs) that mention a “Babba Ji” or “Baba Ji”.

3828. Alma W Probable NDE 12/27/2014. Probable NDE 7499. From Australia A light appeared in the distance and the pain began to fade. Everything stopped and just became peaceful as the light became larger and nearer until it enveloped everything. I could see everywhere, but it was just white light. There was no floor or anything, but I just knew I had to walk towards where the light had begun. I could hear my footsteps- proper footsteps not toddler shuffling or anything so maybe they weren’t my footsteps but I’ve always thought of them as my footsteps. I couldn’t hear anything else or smell or taste, but the light was so bright and vivid. I came to a stop when I saw a little boy in front of me. I did not know who he was at the time, but he has followed me since in my dreams, claiming to be my twin.
Probable NDE at age 2. Met her twin brother who was stillborn early in pregnancy before she was born.

3827. Brian C Possible NDE 12/20/2014. Possible NDE 7496. As I got closer to this light and it became clearer to me it was wider than in height. The light was a glowing, golden color I cannot describe since I had never seen anything like it before. As I got closer, I began to notice what looked like a planet but nothing like I have ever seen before. This planet was clear like a snow globe or clear glass in which this glowing, golden light was inside. As I got closer and the speed and information began to decrease, I could tell that on the edge were thousands and thousands of stars. I began to ask or think what was going on and what was this? My speed stopped and so did the information. I was just floating in space looking at the gorgeous, most beautiful view I had ever seen. I did not feel any pain or bad feelings. I felt peace, comfort, joy, and love like I never felt before. I just floated, taking in this view and trying to figure out what was happening.
Possible NDE due to heart disease.

3826. Charles G NDE 12/18/2014. NDE 7493. As we continued to walk through the tunnel, my sense of awareness was like never before. I felt some sort of imprint in palm of this being. I turned the hand over and saw a hole. I felt overwhelming compassion and love to the point that I felt as if I was going to combust. The being said “this is what they did to me”. I was like….why, oh why? How could this happen to such as you? I looked up to see the face of him once again. Much to my surprise….I was no longer looking at the beautiful celestial being that was walking with me hand in hand. His face now was more olive in complexion, with a very dark tan. His eyes were a deep dark brown, but their was a mesmerizing sparkle in his eyes that blazed of fire. He said to me that there was evil people in the world. I stood behind him and his robe dropped midway to his back where I saw more scars.
NDE due to auto accident. OBE observations confirmed. Dramatic encounter with Jesus.

3825. Mark G NDE 12/18/2014. NDE 7489. I had an out-of-body experience. I was sort of floating over my body, watching the medical team apply emergency shock routine. I could also see my wife and her friend, both of them crying and trying to get to me, but the nurses had to hold them back.
NDE due to severe illness with internal bleeding.

3824. Richard H NDE 12/18/2014. NDE 7487. He was pure and prefect in everyway, he was middle eastern and had a black bread and hair. The flesh was of all races and I knew that this person (God) was all powerful and he looked all humans that loved him. I was talking about earth and we both looked to my left where everything is not man made and there the darken pit and earth was down there. Then I looked at his beautiful garments and edge of one of the garments was diamond trim with one piece not man-made.
NDE due to an auto accident.

3823. Denise N Possible NDE 12/17/2014. Possible NDE 7479. From Portugal. Original in Portuguese, translated to English by Alexandra. I was watching over the body that was escorted by all those beings. There were about 20 beings. The being that looked like a doctor said by thought, ‘We are here to heal that body.’ I did not know the body on the table was me. It had a garb that reached the knees. I felt happy and completely safe. One being escorted me while assuring me that everything was well and nothing could fail. Those beings radiated love and I felt the room filling with love. I felt peace and a well-being I have never felt before.
Anesthesia experience that might have some REM intrusion. No clear life-threatening event.

3822. Monika P NDE 12/9/2014. NDE 7486. From Germany. Original in German, translated to English by Marguy. I saw myself from a corner in the emergency ward and I was fully conscious. I could see my own body down there in this room, sitting in a bathtub. Doctors and nurses were pumping out my stomach, calling my name and slapping my cheeks. I saw myself from above, in the room, and found this somewhat funny. I didn’t feel anything physically, but felt unbelievably well where I was.
NDE from accidental overdose.

3821. Noemi GV Possible NDE 12/9/2014. Possible NDE 7471. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Sean. The tunnel was made of earth. I was wearing my white frilly dress and girl’s tights. I was braiding my hair into two braids, yet never saw my face. Suddenly, I don’t know how, there appeared in front of me a tall slim man with a white trailing tunic that reached the floor. I never saw his feet. His hair was shiny, limp, and fell to his shoulders. I never saw his face because we both were looking in front of us. As he took me by the hand, I noticed that the skin on his hands was very white.
Probable Anesthetic Experience vs. Possible NDE.

3820. Akshatha K NDE 12/7/2014. NDE 7484. From India. I could hardly feel the reality; all the vehicles were moving in slow motion for me, with very low volume. I was floating in the air. It felt, as if I was losing the connection with the reality. I was travelling to a different world altogether, the light was too bright for me to open my eyes fully.
NDE due to unknown febrile illness. Relatively uncommon non-Western NDE.

3819. Scott B NDE 12/7/2014. NDE 22991. I was in a different consciousness that was a more aware, higher state of being. I did not want to come back, even though I knew I had loved ones on earth including a child. Where I was, was so wonderful that it trumped all experiences on earth. In particular, there was the feeling of being loved without worry or sadness.
NDE due to unknown febrile illness. Relatively uncommon non-Western NDE.

3818. Paulo JF NDE 12/7/2014. NDE 7409. From Spain. Original in Spain, translated in English by Leigh. Everything was black and white. Above and in the distance, there was a brilliant white light in the shape of a partially open door toward which I was headed. I didn’t have a body and wasn’t in the water. I felt very calm with a very pleasant sense of peace and well-being. No words can describe the happiness I felt in those moments. It was as if one hundred women were caressing you (it’s a saying) such was the pleasure and well-being I was experiencing. This was something super, super good.
NDE from drowning accident while diving.

3817. Frédéric M NDE 12/3/2014. NDE 7475. From France. Original in French, translated in English by Marguy. Again back with my grandfather, I found myself sitting by a table with a council in the company of several deceased persons of my family, which I still have difficulties to identify. My grandfather led this council. There I was shown my past life, I had access to the purpose of my life. This council was organized only with the goal to come back to earth, something that, at that time, I didn’t consider at all. Then they started to show me the life of my children without me and they showed me the life that I would be living when coming back to earth. My children would be happier, professional lives, more in accordance with myself, a craftsman trade, creative, and independent. After this, they finally convinced me of a necessary return, for the following experience and the well-being of my children.
NDE from heart surgery complications.

3816. Dr. Jean Renee H NDE 12/18/2014. NDE 7481. I arrived to this thing and entered its being with such a welcoming from all who resided within it. Their goodness and love combined with it. This union exceeded what I can explain. They were thrilled to have me join. The light knew all about me and I knew all about them. At once, I was overwhelmed with a distinct choice to either proceed or return; it was totally up to me.
NDE while in medical school (currently a physician) due to accidental medication overdose.

3815. Mona Lisa R NDE 12/1/2014. NDE 7474. Suddenly, I was walking in the autumn forest and there was someone to my left. I was given explicit, stern instructions to not look to my left. Of course, I obeyed. The being walking next to me told me there was no need to worry any longer. The second operation was going to go just fine and I would live to be an adult and to stop letting myself be burdened with fear and worry. I was so incredibly happy and content to walk with this being. I was totally consumed with absolute joy.
NDE at age 13 during surgery with cardiac arrest.

3814. Maryann W NDE 12/1/2014. NDE 7472. While I was out, there was a man standing behind me. I could see myself on the bed looking back at him. I asked who he was and all he said was, ‘It is not your time. You have to go back. You have things to do. I will be here to help you now that you see me.’ I asked his name. He said his name is Justin. He told me to go back now and he will come again.
Atypical NDE in which the being encountered appeared multiple times later with information

3813. Oswaldo Probable NDE 11/26/2014. Probable NDE 7464. From Columbia. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Sean. In the green meadows, it was as if I, myself, or something had to test my spiritual level. I was shown that my childhood could have been lived as if every moment was beautiful. He surprised me with such a profound realization as he was saying goodbye to the surgeon and me, but they wanted me to go. It was a beautiful, deep sleep in a state of peace and harmony. I imagine that, if I had said goodbye I would have stayed in this incomparable, relaxed trance state.
Hindu NDE from a criminal attack.

3812. Penny W NDE 11/23/2014. NDE 7469. I see my body in the bed and it is very still. My friends Megan and David are now in another room, a waiting area. I am omnipresent both with myself in my hospital room and in the waiting room. David and Megan are discussing that if I survive this, I need to have a person that can make my medical decisions if I cannot. This conversation and the location of it have been confirmed. My attention is shifted back in the room. The conversation in the waiting room between my friend and my son and what is going on in my room and the ICU are happening all at once but I am able to shift my attention between the two.
NDE due to anaphylactic shock and need for resuscitation in ICU. OBE observations confirmed.

3811. E.D. W NDE 11/23/2014. NDE 7470. I was in the center. I couldn’t see myself at the time, but I heard loud ear-piercing bangs, it sounded far away but with every bang it was getting closer. Then a loud voice ‘this is how it began and how it will end’. I felt so alone, afraid, the word ‘void’ kept popping up in my mind. Everything was black except the small white dots and one right in front of me but it seemed a million miles away.
NDE due to seizure and cardiac arrest. Relatively rare hellish NDE. Those who have read many NDEs will recognize the falsehood of what was heard during the NDE: “This is how it began and how it will end,” just like one would expect from a hellish realm.

3810. Rhonda M NDE 11/23/2014. NDE 7468. Caution. Graphic Violence for mature audiences only! I was almost floating in a void-like dark space that was peaceful and tranquil. I slowly tunneled towards a really bright light, and then a voice forcefully, but gently, told me to scream.
NDE at age 9 due to criminal attack. Note: It was the earthly events rather than the NDE itself that made the experience distressing. It takes a lot of courage to share this, and I think it will help a lot of people in a similar situation.

3809. Janice G Probable NDE 11/26/2014. Probable NDE 7467. I shouted, ‘I’M ALIVE! I’M ALIVE!’ I was in a bright fog, like inside a bright cloud. The only structure I could see was a round black tunnel to my upper left. A man’s voice said, ‘You have to go back, you have work to do.’ I have never felt more free, safe, and alive in my life. It was profound. All of my senses were just beyond intense. There was such an abundance of peace and love all around me. I was so immersed in the feelings that it was beyond words.
Probable NDE due to blood loss following hysterectomy. Some proselytizing.

3808. Dominic Possible NDE 11/22/2014. NDE 7458. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. This light is a bit difficult to explain, ground, ceiling and sides, there was nothing like this, as this light was a whole. It was not blinding, on the contrary, it was soft, calming, securing, and warm. I can’t compare it to anything: I had no pain, I felt good, fit, smiling. There was soft, angelic music. I sensed an immense love, I was enveloped by this place, and I felt that I was forgiven. I didn’t see who was sending me all this love and who forgave me but I felt something Very High and protecting.
Anesthesia experience or possible NDE.

3807. Maria NDE 11/22/2014. NDE 7459. From Germany. Original in German translated to English by Marguy. Then I suddenly started to fly. I wanted to fly farther, over the wood and towards the grain field that I loved so much. ‘Just flying once over to see everything from above’, I said to myself. I have to say that I otherwise never was flying in dreams, not before and not after this event.
Child NDE from a slip and fall at a pool.

3806. Genny H NDE 11/15/2014. NDE 7462. The trees were on either side of the river and the river ran through the trees. I remember being taken aback by how beautiful everything was. I was very happy because I was on my way to heaven. While I was taking in all of this scenery, I felt like I was in a trance, almost. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a face appeared to me from inside a doorway, or maybe a window. I only saw this person from the waist up. I knew immediately it was Jesus Christ himself.
NDE due to unconsciousness following major surgery for blood clots and an aneurysm.

3805. Glynis W Probable NDE 11/15/2014. Probable NDE 7461. There was a peaceful feeling and I knew I would go to heaven. But I was rushed out of that room and put on my bed. As my mother rushed to my side the nurses took my BP and my mother yelled out ‘70/30’. Although I was lying on the bed, I could see my mother talking to my doctor in the doorway as he told her: ‘I hope we can get her back.’
Dentist has three life-threatening events with at least one probable NDE due to a pneumothorax.

3804. Sally S NDE 11/15/2014. NDE 7460. This wonderful sensation of peace flowed through me, and I floated out of my body. I was in a pediatric ward with two other girls. I remember looking down on each of them as they slept. Suddenly, a beautiful voice told me that it was not my time that I had more to do and that I would marry and have a boy and a girl. I was also told that my life would not be easy, but I would never be alone.
NDE due to bleeding after surgery at age 9. Interesting future awareness of children that she would have. Shared 54 years later.

3803. Bahman R NDE 11/15/2014. NDE 7456. Non-Western NDE from Iran I see a white space then I began seeing the tunnel. A White-black combination color over the walls of the tunnel with the images of somebody that was familiar to me. I think they were my parents and my grandfather who had died years before the time of NDE. I remember that I was watching my past years of life and different events at an unbelievable speed.
NDE due to head injury.

3802. Marc M NDE 11/8/2014. NDE 7454. From Switzerland. After a great loss of blood due to internal bleeding, I left my body. A spiritual being reached up, grabbed me and pulled me back into my body.
NDE due to acute blood loss.

3801. Andrew G NDE 11/8/2014. NDE 7453. I knew the voice that came from within the light. He was a friend of mine who had passed away earlier that year. He said, ‘Andy, it is so beautiful here; it’s beyond anything you can image or know.’ I asked Tim, ‘Why can’t I come in?’ Tim replied, ‘It’s not your time, it’s not your time.’ I remember feeling so happy, so very happy.
NDE due to drowning.

3800. Sharron T Probable NDE 11/8/2014. Probable NDE 7451. There was no tunnel or bright light; instead, a very creamy white/yellow light, like very early morning, was everywhere. The colors were so vivid and the layers of everything went much deeper than our typical 3D: it was more like 30x30D. It was so beautiful and calming that I knew I wanted to be here forever. There were people and animals as far as I could see.
Probable NDE due to severe bacterial pneumonia.

3799. Mich K NDE 11/8/2014. NDE 7450. I always remembered seeing myself in the third person from above like I was hovering. I swear on my Life this is true. Nothing religious but it was amazing.
NDE at age 9 due to blood loss from accident.

3798. Valeria M NDE 11/8/2014. NDE 7447. Although it was clear when I was dying at the time of sinking, I wasn’t aware that I was dead or anything would be strange. It was natural seeing my friends outside the ambulance, it was a normal part if my ‘life’. I was focusing on them so didn’t see anything else, not my body, not the doctors, anymore. I ‘saw’ my friends’ worry, their astonishment, and ‘saw’ the drinking friend’s confusion not knowing what to do, when to come into the ambulance.
NDE due to unknown illness.

3797. Elise C NDE 11/8/2014. NDE 7444. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I found myself in a very luminous place with a slight sensation of mist, when I looked to the distance. This space seemed without limit to me, like a void filled with light. At this precise moment I was on a wooden merry-go-round, I was sitting, I don’t know where, maybe on a horse. I was calm, I felt very well, I asked myself no questions as I didn’t remember my fainting. For me, I had 6 years, and was enjoying being on a merry-go-round all alone. Then a forearm with a hand of a person came out of nowhere, it was as if she showed to me why I was here, as if a camera was showing me that I was unconscious. This hand had a meaning after I understood what had happened to me. I had the choice to stay in this place or to go back.
NDE from going unconscious.

3796. Lariza GWT Possible NDE 11/8/2014. Possible NDE 7429. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Eva R. M. Arriving at the light, I saw the most beautiful garden that anyone could ever imagine. It had many flowers of bright colors. A stream flowed through the garden. I heard the water and the sound of many birds singing the loveliest song, which can be experienced. In the garden to the right were two people; one wore a white tunic and had bare feet. It was JESUS CHRIST and beside him was my brother who had died of a car accident when I was eight years old.
Anesthesia experience that could be a NDE.

3795. Flora O Possible NDE 11/8/2014. Possible NDE 7452. It’s all Love! A spirit, who was cloaked in a burlap tunic with a large hood covering his face, met me. He was an ethereal form. We communicated by thought and feeling; there were no words. He led me to a healing room where other spirits were dressed the same way. As I lay down to be worked on, my soul was being infused with Love. Part of me went to a River that I ‘knew’ was the River of Life. It was beyond magical. I have always wanted to write a book called ‘The Color of Music’ because that is what this river was. Flowing Music that was every color on Earth and a lot more colors we can’t see here, because of Earth’s density. I was hearing the Music of the Spheres during this whole time. It sings Love. It’s Angelic and beyond description.
Detailed STE at time she was considering suicide. States went unconscious, but no life-threatening event documented. Possible NDE

3794. Bronwen C NDE 11/1/2014. NDE 7446. From New Zealand. I found myself traveling rapidly upwards into the sky. I had an immensely joyous feeling of lightness. I remember looking back at my crumpled body on the rock below and observing that ‘I’ was not my body. I could see everything below me very clearly. Below was the Hawkesbury River, with the beautiful bush surrounding it. I was heading towards some very beautiful cumulus shaped clouds. I had no fear, only joy. I looked back again and saw my boyfriend, who I was very much in love with, standing beside my body. In real time, this would have been several minutes after I fell, as he was quite a ways behind me and it would have taken some time to get down the steep cliff. I was a long way away by now and still traveling upwards, but I could feel exactly what he was feeling. He was very distressed. My heart filled with compassion for him, which I guess was what brought me back.
Exceptional NDE due to head injury from fall and an encounter with an angel.

3793. Annelise W Probable NDEs 11/1/2014. Probable NDE 7445. On the three occasions I was very tired or severely unwell prior to the experience. Afterwards, I was sad to have left the place and had to make efforts to thank the people who saved my life; feeling I wish they didn’t interfere. My personal life was great; it had nothing to do with my earthly life.
Three probable NDEs associated with, at least for one of them, apparent cardiac arrest due to blood loss.

3792. Vernon C NDE 11/1/2014. NDE 7443. From Canada. The next thing was that I was about a few hundred feet in air watching my body tumble down the river. I thought how weird it was that I had drowned; yet I could still see, think, and wonder. I thought,
NDE due to drowning.

3791. Marney N NDE 11/1/2014. NDE 7442. I floated above in the room, I could see everything that was going on, but not afraid or concerned with it. I saw them cut my clothes off after ‘I was gone’ (which was validated later). It was a light feeling, like the world was lifted off my shoulders and I could float now, I felt like I was safe, I was comfortably curled up, in a pair of giant hands that held me. This comfort, this ultimate light was everywhere. I knew I never wanted to leave that place: this is where I belonged. Then I felt like I fell from a tall building and slammed back into my body. I remember my family there and very angry, my demeanor was elation (which I am sure confused them).
NDE due to overdose in suicide attempt.

3790. Sherry S NDE 11/1/2014. NDE 7441. I remember seeing all of this happening. I saw the look on my mom’s face as she sat in the chair, I saw my sister backing the truck up to the porch and my dad yelling he couldn’t lift me because of his hip. I have no idea how I saw this all because the events were happening at the same time. I remember being in the doorway of the house and thinking, I am not sure if I actually said it or not. ‘I love you all.’
NDE due to allergic reaction.

3789. Farrah NDE 11/1/2014. NDE 7439. I was no longer home; I was safe, free in light traveling somewhere unknown. It was bright and warm. I felt loved ones were present. I admit, at the time, it felt like I was moving in joy and peace, both emotional and physical. I was escorted and cradled by loved ones who had passed me and were whispering. A stronger sound came from the rest. It was either a VERY close family member or a loving influence giving me a path option. I could choose the light or return to my body.
NDE due to suicide attempt by gunshot to head.

3788. Amanda M Possible NDE 11/1/2014. Possible NDE 7438. I remember being taught how to fly by a very nice lady who reminded me of Glenda from the Wizard of Oz. I remember flying around my house and being amazed at how close I could get to the floor without landing. It was as if I was able to become incredibly small and fly through the fibers of the carpet. I specifically remember the feeling of learning how to soar and how exhilarating it was. I flew around my house and the nice lady laughed at my amazement.
Possible NDE associated with fall out of bunk bed at age 7.

3787. Garrett T Probable NDE 11/1/2014. Probable NDE 7437. I had been very depressed and overdosed on my insulin. It worked but not for long. While I was ‘dead’ there was a shadowy figure next to me. He pointed to my seizing body on the ground and then I felt a surge of pain before returning to life.
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt at age 13.

3786. Joan S FDE 11/1/2014. FDE 7435. Moments after these thoughts, I was up in the sky, maybe about 20 or 30 feet high. I was looking down on this man who was on top of my body. I was aware that I had no body, but I could see, just as though I had eyes. If I had a body, I would have been floating flat on my stomach, looking straight downward. I looked to my right, as though I had turned my head; I saw that I was on a plane of some sort. There was a layer of darkness above me, an invisible layer below me between myself and the earth, and an open area out to the right side, which was light. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to go there or not.
Fear-death experience during criminal attack.

3785. George N NDE 10/27/2014. NDE 7434. When I realized all the new faces coming into the well-lit room, I felt myself going up, as if in an invisible elevator and was hovering (I actually felt like I was bobbling) above my bed. I remember that I was able to hear and know what everyone was thinking and saying all at once. There were many doctors and nurses in that room at the time. I remember that I knew one doctor understood what was happening to me while the others were speculating. I came back down and yelled: ‘Listen to him! He understands’.
NDE due to bleeding after surgery.

3784. Anna A NDE 10/27/2014. NDE 7433. From Greece Her thought came into my being and I could feel and see things through her mind and sense exactly how she meant it. I ‘told’ her, ‘I would so love for you to be with us and play with your grandchildren’. She ‘answered’, ‘Don’t you worry at all! Before this child was born, we went together to all the gardens and lovely forests and we laughed, played, and sang together. Besides, now that I’m here I can protect you much stronger than if I was there, weak and ill.’
Exceptional NDE due to blood loss after delivery.

3783. Victoria W Probable NDE 10/27/2014. Probable NDE 7431. I remember where the meadow ended, where the man in robes came from, and the white and billowy clouds. Whereas, the meadow was the tall grass and beautiful flowers that were unlike any colors I’d ever seen. The meadow had a soft light but there was no sun. There was so much peace there. It didn’t seem to surprise me that there were many times, neither I nor my brother were in true human form but were more like entities.
Probable NDE due to septicemia. [Editor’s Note: Septicemia is a serious life-threatening infection that gets worse very quickly.]

3782. Sara A Probable NDE 10/27/2014. Probable NDE 7428. The very first thing I noticed upon awakening was that I could literally feel all the intense energy of terror and panic that was radiating from my husband, yet I felt unusually calm and peaceful myself. I wondered, momentarily, if I was dead, because I had heard this is what the feeling is like of being away from one’s own fear and becoming a detached observer. I could see the energy of the terror in him as being separate from his core being: I just knew it was something easily managed. I instantly knew how to soothe him energetically and went right to work doing it. All I wanted to do was comfort him.
Probable NDE due to concussion. Remarkable life changes after concussion.

3781. Reinaldo N FDE 10/27/2014. FDE 7414. From Brazil. Original in Portuguese, translated into English by Alexandra. I saw all my life, all my past, my family and friends, all the important moments of my life in a flash. Then I opened my eyes and I don’t know what happened. I should have died in front of that truck, and that didn’t happen. I didn’t do anything besides wait for certain death.
Fear death experience from an impending motorcycle accident.

3780. Juanita NDE-Like Experience 10/27/2014. NDE-Like 7377. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated into English by Eva R. M. Suddenly, I felt like I was shot out of my body. I bolted fast, flying into the midst of an endless ocean of light; going very fast. I felt that I traveled a great distance, when, inside me I knew I was reaching a limit after which would be Jesus, God. From the time I was a child I was very much a believer. If I crossed, I would not come back. I felt a desire to follow, but an inner voice told me and made me understand that I was not ready to go there, that there were still things I must learn, and I, myself, then thought, ‘I’m not ready, I must return.’
NDE-like experience.

3779. Nancy S NDE 10/27/2014. NDE or FDE 22979. All I remember is seeing my head. Then I was down the end of the stairs. People heard me scream an unnerving sound. I remember nothing but watching.
NDE vs. fear-death experience from fall down stairs.

3778. Raymond O NDEs 10/18/2014. NDEs 7423. From the UK I had died again. This time, I was met an old friend who had died from a tumor two years previously. We were tightly together, moving forward almost like in a crowd; but he and the others were all grey in color. ‘What are you doing here Ray, you are not supposed to be here,’ he told me.
Several NDEs due to cardiac arrest in a short period of time.

3777. Sherry C FDE 10/18/2014. FDE 7421. The next thing I saw was me, looking down over us all. I was floating over the whole scene. I silently yelled out to God, ‘please save us!’ Our huge car had wedged itself between a huge, old, concrete cattle trough, and the huge oak tree. Our car came to a stop, and I was once again in my body.
Fear death experience due to car accident without significant injury at age 13.

3776. Lisa M Probable NDE 10/18/2014. Probable NDE 7420. I remember hearing the complete panic in the nurse’s voice and wondering why she was so upset, because I felt fine, at peace. I was aware that my heart wasn’t beating and that I wasn’t breathing, but I didn’t care. I could have just stayed in that peaceful place, but the urgency in her voice seemed to force me back against my will.
Probable NDE (vs. anesthesia experience) during surgery.

3775. Gabby G NDE 10/11/2014. NDE 7419. From South Africa. I watched the doctor say ‘we are losing her, we are losing her.’ Then, I was in a tunnel and travelling to a light with a wonderful feeling of love and protection. A voice said ‘why have you stopped fighting? Don’t you know I am still with you?’ I was then told that I had to go back.
NDE due to psychotropic medicine overdose.

3774. Nichole BD NDE 10/11/2014. NDE 7417. I was running in a grassy field toward a giant sun. I remembered looking down at my legs and they were short to the ground: I was a child again. There was another child holding my hand and running beside me. It was a little blonde hair boy with blue eyes. The most amazing part was a pure feeling of the most intense love I can barely describe. It was just wave after wave of pure love. It was within me, it was around me, it was EVERYTHING. It felt like heartbeats of love, one wave of love after another. Yet there was love in the interim as well, and then the wave would come with even more and more. It was endless, eternal and complete. I had no fear whatsoever. I had no feeling other than LOVE. I had no thought other than reaching the LIGHT. I felt pure happiness and joy. It was the most beautiful feeling that words could never even come close to describing. The closest thing I can think of to relate it to on this earth would be the moment I brought my child into this world.
NDE due to apparent complication during surgery.

3773. Luis H NDE 10/11/2014. NDE 7415. I woke up in a place where everything was white and clear, I felt alive for the very first time. I had no pain, no sadness or anything, all I felt was love and peace. As I looked around, a bright light hit my face and blinded me. As I tried getting closer to it the more at peace I felt. When suddenly someone was covering the light and began to get closer and closer to me. As that someone was getting closer to me, my heart felt joy, love and peace. Once in front of me he hugged me and told me he was my father and the one who created me. When he told me that, I knew I was home but in his words; he told me it was not my time and that he would call me again when it was my time. Also, I was to tell my story so that those who do not believe in him could see that he does exist and he is watching over us. Once God told me that, I woke up in the hospital as if nothing had ever happened.
NDE due to cardiac arrest at age 10.

3772. Elle D NDE 10/11/2014. NDE 7413. I observed my parents making love and was drawn to them, experienced myself in my mother’s womb, then my own birth and relived my life. Not so much the various experiences but what it was like to be myself at each stage of growing up, until I became an old woman and died again.
NDE due to strychnine ingestion. Interesting frightening aspects of NDE until she surrendered- and the experience became blissful.

3771. Zoe C NDE 10/11/2014. NDE 7410. From the Philippines I was still able to follow the prayers asking for God’s help, for the sake of my child, whom I had not yet seen. Soon, I experienced myself speedily floating inside a fast moving silver metallic tunnel and saw a very bright light at the far end of the tunnel. When I got out of the tunnel, a blinding, shining floating white robe met me. On the side, I saw my father who died in 1982, which was six years earlier. I clearly remember he was smiling at me. Crying in extreme joy for seeing my father, I asked him to please help me get back and still he kept on smiling. I implored ‘God please return me, my child needs me’ and suddenly I heard a thunderous voice saying ‘GO BACK’.
NDE due to complication of delivery.

3770. JJHG Experience 10/9/2014. Anesthesia Experience 7406. From the Canary Islands. Original in Spanish, translated to English to Erika. I wondered what was going on while my body sank into deep relaxation and began feeling an intense well-being, peace and tranquility within myself. Everything went absolutely black. I didn’t hear or see anyone. I saw no lights, no stairs, heard no voices. I would have died happily at that time. I wanted to die. I felt no fear. I know what it feels like to die and I’m ready. Then I went into respiratory arrest.
Anesthesia Experience.

3769. Richard NDE 10/27/2014 & 11/9/2012. NDE 7432/22974. I remember being sure that I had in fact died in the emergency room, and to my amazement finding that there was life and consciousness even though I knew I was dead. When I did arrive to stand next to these two groups of people it was as if it took no real time at all to reach the people ahead of me even though it had felt like a giant struggle to do so. I can still here the sound of my voice as I asked them “who are you people?” It is a sound of disbelief that something I believed not possible turns out to be proof, positive true. I could make out very little of what they were saying, but one group seemed to trying to make the other group understand that “I was a traitor” while the other spokesperson for the opposing group asked for an exception.
NDE with very atypical experience content. It is notable how uncommon NDEs are with such an atypical experience.

3768. Wanda M Probable NDE 10/4/2014. Probable NDE 7404. As we pulled up to the hospital, and they took me out of the ambulance, I started seeing my surroundings very differently. I was sure that they lifted the gurney to maximum height for some reason. I was at least 10 feet in the air, looking down. I remember as we entered the halls of the hospital that the ceilings ties were right next to my body and face, and the floor was a long way down. They started to intubate me, quickly grabbing plastic doo-dads and hoses.

3767. Monika NDE 9/20/2014. NDE 7398. From Czech Republic. Original in Czech, translated to English to Rick. My experience began with a flight through a dark tunnel that had a “certain structure.” I came closer to the light, which was all the more intense but in no way did it address me. the light was full of love, otherwise I am unable to give it a name. I found myself in a fruit orchard with the constantly pleasant light. It was as if it told me that I don’t need to be afraid. It said that I was received with enormous love and no one in any way will judge me. My inner feeling was that I ended up home. It was very peculiar that it was as if I did not have a physical body. I was extraordinarily light and my legs in the grass did not touch a single blade. I was pretty confused by that because as an atheist and a person when I confront something scientifically unexplainable, I am reluctant to believe it.
NDE from former atheist who tried to commit suicide.

3766. Rhea S Probable NDE 9/27/2014. Probable NDE 7399. I got the distinct feeling that I was going on a journey. My spirit felt exhilarated but I remember arguing in my mind, ‘I can’t do this because my sister is severely injured and needs me!’ The next thing I knew, I felt so exuberant going through this high-speed tunnel. It was like a swirling, dark vortex. I felt ‘blissed-out’ in it.
Probable NDE following car accident.

3765. Mary Ann P NDE 9/27/2014. NDE 7397. From above, I could see her. I was on the ceiling looking down at her trying to tell her to help me. I could see her calling an ambulance and trying to put clothes on me. I was unable to help her, since my legs felt like lead. I floated to a room somewhere, and could see a small door at the far end of the room. A part of me felt like I was supposed to go through the door, but another part of me said, ‘No.’
NDE due to allergic reaction after eating brownie laced with marijuana.

3764. Marsha T NDE 9/27/2014. NDE 7396. What happened is that I quickly entered a tunnel of white light. The tunnel was white. The end of the tunnel was like a grey dot in the distance. It was the most wonderful experience ever. So peaceful! Then there was the music. I was overwhelmed by it.
NDE due to criminal attack.

3763. David B NDE 9/27/2014. NDE 7395. My grandmother was in front of me smiling. Behind her, I could see lots and lots of people. They were not really people, but shapes of them in a cloudy grey-color. I could feel them and the excitement and happiness coming from them. I could feel that I knew them and they were waiting for me. My grandmother was smiling as she said, ‘It is not your time yet, you have a few more things to achieve.’ Then it was as if everything went into reverse.
NDE due to seizure.

3762. D NDE 9/27/2014. NDE 7394. From France. Original in French, translated to English to Marguy. I could watch myself on the ground while I was floating above my body. I didn’t feel pain anymore. I floated in the wind going faster and higher. I didn’t know if this would be stopping or if I would continue to go higher up into the sky. I saw the place globally, looking at the swimming pool, public gardens, the stadium, streets, roofs of the houses, at an angle that is just impossible to describe. I saw the alarm of people on the ground while I floating above them. I remember that I saw that I was wearing a red swimsuit that summer. A feeling of well-being came over me.
NDE from landing wrong while diving into a swimming pool.

3761. Kevin E NDE 9/20/2014. NDE 7392. As soon as I fell off the bed, I saw myself HIT the rocker and was thinking, ‘That’s going to really hurt’. Immediately, things became surreal. The door to our room opened and a brilliant light came forth, with a woman (angel?), coming in to cradle me in her arms. The light filled the entire room and I could feel her sweetness and love. She was dressed in either brown or gray, quite simply and had long brown hair and brown eyes, full of love.
NDE at age 3 due to head injury.

3760. Elaine L Probable NDE 9/20/2014. Probable NDE 7384. From France. Original in French, translated to English to Marguy. My father was pushing me back saying ‘no you cannot come with me, go back with your son’
Probable NDE from falling and going unconscious.

3759. Paulo NDE 9/19/2014. NDE 7389. he only thing I wanted to know then was, what purpose? She responded it’s not for me to know, but everything is going to be alright/OK. Which I understood that meant not just the trauma I had just experienced, but my whole life. Then I was outside my body above the ambulance, I didn’t descend from the clouds or anything, I was just there. I recognized the street and surroundings and knew where we were headed, the hospital. Instantly I could feel myself, I took a breath and opened my eyes.
NDE due to fire at age 7.

3758. Otto J NDE 9/19/2014. NDE 7388. From New Zealand. To my surprise I was again watching the rain but it was hitting the ground in slow motion. There was plenty of time to watch each individual drop even though it was raining even harder now. Then everything went white like a bright mist. The mist cleared as I moved forward. There was no sensation of walking I just wanted to move forward and that’s where I went. As the mist cleared I looked down. There was a line or boundary that I knew I wasn’t to cross. Beyond the line there was a very large plain building with an opening like an arch at its base. People were coming through the mist and passing through the opening as if it was the normal thing to do. As I pondered this situation a women in her 50’s came up behind me and put her hand on my shoulder, she said” you know you’re not supposed to be here aye?” I got the impression she could tell I wasn’t in a good state of mind and I knew I wasn’t going to get any further than this. Just as I was turning back I woke up.
NDE due to suicide attempt at age 17.

3757. Lyndall W NDE 9/19/2014. NDE 7387. From Australia. I noticed that the Doctor was surrounded in a shining silver light. I was aware of my body being surrounded by a beautiful blue light. I felt as though I was held in the arms of Jesus or some incredibly loving energy, similar to that of a baby being loved and held by its mother, although clearer. I was not afraid at all and in some ways very alert. All pain disappeared. I felt the energy moving up my body and was conscious of wanting it to move out through my head. I felt, or heard myself humming a sound similar to the sound Om, I recognized this after I came around. At some point I was aware of my life passing before my eyes and I was judging the events impartially. I was aware of a panel of people advising me. I was asked if I wanted to continue on or go back. It felt as though reasons were presented to me for a case to return to the body. I believe that I wanted to move on into this loving space. At some point I decided that I would come back for my new baby.
NDE due to hemorrhage after delivery.

3756. Steven M NDE 9/19/2014. NDE 7386. At the time my air way was being blocked off by a much larger boy at the school bus stopping response to I me making fun about him with the other kids that where there to go to school. He has pushed me up against a tree and as I blacked out I felt myself sliding down the face of the tree. The next thing I knew I was looking down on this whole seen with me there and the girls that where there pulling him off me. This looking down seen lasted no more than 3 seconds, but during it I do recall having 360 degree vision if you will. I recall coming back around and gasping for air and my throat hurting for several hours at school that day and then the whole thing was forgotten about until almost 20 years ago when I read about someone’s NDE.
NDE due to being choked at age 10. Shared 49 years later.

3755. Margaret R Possible NDE 9/19/2014. Possible NDE 7383. The only thing that I can remember is leaning how to walk and maintain a connection to the divine at the same time. I also remember that I learned to withhold making judgments, not just about a person, but also about any situation or circumstance that I found myself within. I was not to determine if it was bad or good. I was to first allow the Father to show me how to view it, or the person, and how to react and feel about it. This would be kind of fed or downloaded to me in the form of an impression. (I often get these in life). This way, whatever the experience, the Father is telling me what I need to know in order to perform or react and feel in the manner that best suits my survival here and my growth to be that which I was created to be.
Probable NDE at a few months old due to accidental overdose of medication. Shared 57 years later.

3754. Ricardo AH NDE 9/19/2014. NDE 7379. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Erika. After several minutes we approached the mountains in front of us and the cloud was increasingly larger and brighter. Its whiteness was impressive and that glow was growing more and more; it approached me until it enveloped me. In the light of the cloud I realized that its color was white, but with a slight golden hue. I felt at that moment peace, joy and absolute tenderness, as if that light burned me and gave me complete serenity. I was subjected to a love without limits comfortable as if on one’s lap. I felt welcomed, loved unconditionally, forgiven for all my mistakes in life. Everything disappeared, the sharp sound, the voice of my companion, the panoramic view, everything. Well I was there, enjoying the peace. In the light of the cloud, I didn’t see my body either. I found myself joined with the light and full of happiness.
Exceptional NDE that happened two months ago from a priest going unconscious.

3753. Wendy G NDE 9/7/2014. NDE 7373. From Canada The next thing I saw was a meadow in the mountains with indescribable beauty. The sky was the bluest blue; the grass was the greenest green. All colors here are extremely pale compared to there. I saw my grandmother, running with children, towards me. She took me by the hand and we were at the beginning of a bridge over a small creek. We talked for what seemed like hours about my life since she had died. I had just turned 9 years old when she died. We also talked about when she came to let me know that she died, to say goodbye until we would meet again and not to be sad. She was so vibrant and healthy, despite dying of a brain tumor.
Detailed NDE due to cardiac arrest during surgery.

3752. Bob M NDE 9/7/2014. NDE 7382. While in the act of dying, I was terrified, but only for a few seconds. Then a calm and peace came over me that I still remember vividly. Warm light and peace, which exceeds understanding (literally), surrounded me and I was going to the light.
NDE due to drowning at age 9. Shared 69 years later.

3751. Marta E NDE 9/7/2014. NDE 7378. From Portugal. A car came across the one, in which I was driving and I lost consciousness by traumatic cranium encephalic attack. I remember I believe I was out of my body, looking down and asking me, ‘Why was everybody so anxious about the situation?’ It was so peaceful, that I can’t remember in my all life to have had such an equal experience.
NDE due to car accident from physician.

3750. Jeffery M NDE 9/7/2014. NDE 7372. I remember trying to talk to a family member but they did not hear me. I somehow realized they could not hear me, so I thought about getting closer to their ear and trying again, and realized that I was instantly already by their ear. I remember going in front of the house and counting how many emergency vehicles arrived. Counting the cars, pickups and fire trucks and police there were all together: 15. I remember seeing all the priests from the Catholic high school across the street all standing together in the side yard out of the way of the firemen. I did not realize I was gone and out of my body until I was revived and sitting in a chair later, behind the house and had time to think about the episode. I was revived by paramedics. My hands and feet looked like burnt bacon for a long time.
NDE due to electrocution at age 16.

3749. Joshua L NDE 9/7/2014. NDE 7366. In this state I felt timeless, it felt like an eternity could have passed, yet I was still aware of the now. The more I started to think of what happened to me and how I got here, the slower I began to move. I began to try to resist it, as if I had any choice. A peace came over me that rendered me helpless and calmed me at the same time. During this timeless state, I did have memories that I could use to amuse myself. Being only 5 years old I don’t remember all the countless thoughts I had because it felt like an eternity. I do, however, remember the detail of how they appeared in my mind or consciousness.
NDE due to fall with head injury at age 5.

3748. Don D NDE 12/20/2013. NDE 16073. I wondered what was in the beautiful city below, and if there were any trees there like on earth. Without moving, suddenly I could see a street level view from within the city. Not only were there many trees, but they were sublimely beautiful. They were extremely colorful….in a palette of colors that does not exist on earth. I was immediately struck by how beautiful these colors were….and how odd it was that they were almost intense in the sense that neon colors were, yet somehow struck you as being as mild as pastel and perfectly coordinated. I marveled at how very much more beautiful the color palette was there than it was on earth.
NDE from unknown illness.

3747. Beau B NDE 9/7/2014. NDE 7370. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I was floating in an azure-blue sky. A cold wind hit my limbs. I heard the sound of the wind upon me. I was transported. My arms and legs opened up like a cross. I was flying at such a speed towards this light. At the moment, I didn’t realize what happened, but it was impressive. Maybe I was in a big tunnel? I don’t know, as everything was blue. I felt cold, very cold. Afar, I perceived this immense and very bright white spot, but it was pleasant to the eyes, not dazzling. A radiation, a source of warmth and well-being was warming my face.
NDE from accidental strangulation.

3746. Peter B Probable NDE 8/23/2014. Probable NDE 7363. I was free and now flying into the clouds. There was no more pain, no more anything of this earth. Looking ahead, I was going higher and then there was a bright warm light, so bright but full of love. There was no fear at all. I came to a stop. Suddenly, from no place at all, there was a voice. It was a warm and soft voice that said, ‘You have to go back, it is not your time you have things to finish that are not done!’
NDE vs Dream vs Febrile Hallucination from flu with fever.

3745. Donna GV NDE 8/23/2014. NDE 7362. I remember floating through the woods of many trees. There seem to be an open path where I was floating toward. I heard people in the woods laughing at me, but I could not see them. Still floating forward, I felt no pain, or any emotions. Yet the feeling was wonderful. I came to a stop and said ‘I am ready’. I knew that this was the place to leave the living. Many people spoke as one collective mind. They said that it was not my time and that I had one more thing to do.
NDE due to car crash.

3744. Maggie S NDE 8/23/2014. NDE 7361. I separated from my body. I observed myself lying on the bed and all of the busy-ness in the room. I felt no pain or distress. It seemed that all was okay; but it also seemed that things were not okay.
NDE due to post-operative hemorrhage.

3743. Henrietta J NDE 8/21/2014. NDE 7358. From France. I saw a light, bluish white, very intense, that didn’t dazzle me. All was black around me. I floated in the void while approaching this light, then was stopped as if being behind an open window. I wanted to jump into this beneficial, living light, which seemed to me as being God. But my grand-aunt, deceased in 1982, appeared to me in the frame of this window. She was wearing a double pearl necklace. She was young and bright. I then said to her, ‘Aunt Andrée, I would like to stay with you.’ She smiled at me. My consciousness was lucid, much clearer and quicker than in the earth-life, and I knew myself as being dead. My aunt, while smiling, answered: ‘No, that’s not possible.’ I insisted: ‘Aunt Andrée, please allow me to stay with you, I’m fed up journeying down there, I want to get back home!’
NDE from peritonitis.

3742. Tina S NDE 8/16/2014. NDE 7356. I realized that my grandmother and great-grandmother were standing at the entrance to the light. My grandmother had died in 1978 and I had never met my great-grandmother. Both were native. They told me by telepathy, that it was not my time and that I had more to do. During this time, I have no idea how long this lasted. I was completely immersed in the most incredible love, contentment, acceptance, feeling of being home, that you only could imagine. In fact, we don’t have words to describe the feelings.
NDE due to accidental gunshot and cardiac arrest under anesthesia. Initial part of experience is ‘anesthetic awareness’ due to incomplete anesthesia, and is notably different from the content of the NDE.

3741. Sam J NDE 8/16/2014. NDE 7352. Creator/God/Great Spirit said to me, ‘You’re going back.’ Exercising my free will and choice (Yes, I have that kind of relationship with Creator/God/Great Spirit that I feel just fine talking back) I said, ‘No I’m not’ Creator/God/Great Spirit said, ‘Yes you are. I have ‘stuff’ for you to do.’ With that, a bolt of energy came out of the energy form and zapped me.
Exceptional and thought-provoking NDE due to apparent clinical death with absent brain function.

3740. Mauritz N Probable NDE 8/16/2014. Probable NDE 7351. From Sweden. I was in a dark tunnel with the brightest white light in the distance that I have ever seen. My life started to flash. The feeling was fantastic! I felt total bliss and the best I have ever felt. This is 100% different from real life where I live in constant pain due to back injury/surgery. In the distance of the bright light, I heard a voice in Swedish tell me, ‘Come here. It’s okay’. Some kind of humanoid-looking life form I have never seen. I said to them, ‘Not now.’
Probable NDE due to respiratory suppression from medication.

3739. Gary J NDE 8/9/2014. NDE 7346. I got up off the arena operating table and stepped around my surgeon to his left, looking over his shoulder, at my draped body and the opening in the surgical drape surrounding my incision, running down my lower back to my coccyx. A nurse was handing the anesthesiologist a syringe with what I heard was adrenaline. He injected it into the IV over my left arm. I saw the monitor and it was flat lined. Then things got busy. But, at that moment, all of the drama and apparent life-saving activity became unimportant.
NDE due to complication during surgery.

3738. Olivia E NDE 8/9/2014 & 5/29/2017. NDE 7342/8294. I felt a very quick ‘whoosh!’ and suddenly I was floating at the top of the car ceiling in the backseat behind my Dad’s head!! I saw his silhouette shape, his back to me. I saw the very bright dashboard lights. I saw over in the passenger seat, ‘Mom’ with that scarf on her head. It was night. I realized I was floating and I looked down at my ‘floating’ self, but there was NO BODY there. I could ‘FEEL’ everything around me: FEEL IT!!
NDE at age 6 weeks old due to flu during drive to hospital.

3737. William H NDE 8/9/2014. NDE 7340. Each of us, as an individual sphere of communion seems the embodiment of two complementary halves: Understanding and Memory. While Understanding seems the principal characteristic of the higher soul, Memory seems to be the principal characteristic of the lower soul. As I experienced it, Understanding is our individual portion of the limitless Knowledge of the One Soul, the evolving insight we possess into the Way of the One, our individual spark of immortality. Memory, on the other hand, is the accumulated impressions of all the lifetimes we recall, the sum of all the personalities we have yoked to our soul, our enduring storehouse of mortal treasures.
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

3736. JK S Probable NDE 8/9/2014. Probable NDE 7339. They were discussing my life and my accomplishments. They knew all the details of my life, as if my life was condensed to symbols or special signs. I vividly recall not sitting down to join them, because in my mind, I wanted to return. Attention was upon me, and I mentally told them I wanted to return to raise my four-year-old son who wasn’t allowed to visit me in the hospital. I was mentally told that was my choice. I mentally expressed my desire to continue my life with my son. I knew my decision was supported. They knew I would return because I did not sit down in the chair. If I had sat in the chair, I would have been joining them. This felt so agreeable.
Probable NDE during bronchoscopy and ADC next morning from deceased grandmother.

3735. Cyanrose J NDE 8/3/2014. NDE 7336. I instantly floated above my body. Confused and in fear I considered floating out the window, but turned and saw my infant daughter, the doctor and nurses were working to save her life. I floated toward her: reaching as I neared. My baby was beautiful. My arm and hand seemed extended in length, longer than normal. My extended hand went right through them all. I started to feel panicky. I tried to speak but the doctors/nurses couldn’t hear me. I watched my baby kicking her feet and moving her arms. I could hear her crying. My heart ached because I felt she was dying. In tremendous emotional pain and anguish I floated outside the room to see a red phone in the hallway.
NDE during delivery.

3734. Wanda K NDE 8/3/2014. NDE 7335. The best I can explain is, my spirit submitted completely. I knew God was there and it was as if I was resting within him, not as a separate entity. It was truly the greatest peace anyone could know. I didn’t hear, I just was and that was being within God. I, immediately, ‘knew’ that God was there and I existed in Him.
NDE due to hypothermia from scuba diving

3733. Cassandra P NDE 8/3/2014. NDE 7331. From Australia. body at the heart or central chest. Where it touched, the heat was dispelled by the most exquisite coolness. This immense relieving coolness spread from the center to the extremities. Then I found myself travelling up the blue ray of light. The color was indescribably beautiful, alive, delicious, shimmering and enveloping me. I was moving upwards, I sensed, at great speed. I thought, ‘this must be how death feels, how anyone can fear this wonderful release, this joy?’
NDE due to fever from cowpox. Happened at age 17 in South Africa. Shared 53 years later.

3732. Barbara G Probable NDE 8/3/2014. Probable NDE 7330. Suddenly there was no ceiling or roof over my bed, the sun was very bright and the sky was very blue, and there was someone there telling me, ‘come on let’s go you can go now you can fly’ and I knew immediately that it was true. I found myself sitting up on my bed feeling more wonderful that I have ever felt in my life. The empty shell of my body still lay on the bed behind me, but it meant nothing.
Probable NDE due to undiagnosed medical condition causing anoxia and syncope.

3731. Wendy T NDE 8/3/2014. NDE 7329. After 2 or 3 days, the nurses made me get up and walk in the hallway. I saw the Doctor who had been screaming at everybody and wouldn’t give up on me. I went up to him and thanked him for saving my life. All the blood drained out of his face and I think we both realized, at the same time, that we had never met when I was alive.
NDE due to suicide attempt at age 16.

3730. Marie W NDE 8/3/2014. NDE 7325. Then a pair of hands came through. They were amazing! I instantly knew that they were the divine hands of Jesus. He reached and suddenly I was in his hands. He began moving me, handing me off to the next Master. I heard exquisite sounds that were all around me and through me. It was like music, but not. There were notes and frequencies; with each note and each blend of frequency, it changed my experience into the next step.
NDE due to criminal attack. Remarkable account and very atypical.

3729. Carlos S NDE 8/3/2014. NDE 7322. Then, there was silence. The ringing stopped, the pain was gone and I, from a higher elevation, was watching my mother kneeling beside the sofa, shaking me. This lasted for what seemed a matter of seconds and the noises and pains returned.
Brief NDE at age 5 due to Scarlet Fever.

3728. Mary D STE 8/3/2014. STE 7334. In the experience of being one of the trees, I felt the love resonating like a sense of strength and glorious power, sturdiness, powerfulness, and longevity. When I felt the love when the beam first reached me, it was first like I am precious, I am cherished. I felt cherished, I felt me specifically, I am loved by God and I want you to feel that, that truth, that knowing in your cells: that you are cherished, you are loved, you are precious, you are God’s precious baby, delicate precious infant, God’s own creation. God loves you as if you were the only thing in existence. God loves all things like that. God loves all of existence preciously and specifically. God glories in the detail of the magnificence of the life you are co-creating with God. I love God.
Exceptional STE while operating a vehicle. Multiple insights, including insights into the tinniest particle that composes matter.

3727. Jacqueline HW NDE 7/27/2014. NDE 7313. From New Zealand Upon experiencing the tremendous light, which to our normal eyes would seem almost blinding, I first saw our dog, Mr. Miyagi, who had passed six months earlier. He had died of old age, but upon that meeting, he was like a lion in his prime and sitting in a meadow. He radiated love for me and for our time that had been spent together on this earth. We didn’t communicate through words, it is just a knowing.
NDE due to cardiac arrest from apparent heat stroke.

3726. Beth S NDE 7/19/2014. NDE 7319. I remember my whole body going rigid and screaming, but nothing came out. Then there was blackness. I was floating in the blackness heading somewhere. I was happy to be there. It was peaceful, calm, and quiet. I felt as if I knew all the secrets to the universe. Then there was a pounding on my chest, a man yelling, and my sister in law crying. I was really angry to be back in my own body.
NDE due to electrocution at age 15.

3725. Alta NDE 7/19/2014. NDE 7318. From South Africa All I knew was that I fell and it was dark. Then I was in a wonderful, warm and loving light. It felt as if I was being held in the arms of Jesus; fully protected with no fear, but total calm. I felt as though I being held like I was something precious. I had a sense of timelessness and comfort. I had no awareness of my body or any contact with the physical world. I felt total peacefulness.
NDE at age 6 due to accidental burial during construction.

3724. Martha BG NDE 7/19/2014. NDE 7317. There was a very bright light and a welcoming place. I was not in a city and there was no landscape, just the warm, loving, wonderful, welcoming bright light. I was coming toward an indistinct group of people, they had no bodily form they just seemed to be hovering near a central figure who had on a flowing robe. I had a choice. I could join them or return to my life. I had a wonderful, joyful, peaceful feeling. It was suddenly decided for me.
NDE due to unconsciousness during delivery.

3723. Ken D NDE 7/19/2014. NDE 7316. I remember seeing myself in the car. Then I went through a tunnel. I saw my father and other relatives. I felt so happy and at peace that I did not want to leave. There was a body standing there in a robe looking like Jesus. I can’t say for sure that it was he or not. The light was pure white, bright, crisp and perfectly round with him standing in the center. He said to me, ‘Go back, it is not your time yet.’
NDE due to auto accident at age 17.

3722. Tikvah F NDE 7/19/2014. NDE 7315. I was above the chaos, confused as to where I was. The paramedic struck the body’s chest twice, as she said, ‘I got this.’ A baby was crying loudly and people were rushing around. Then there was a man at the body’s head, while the woman kept pumping the chest. I wasn’t interested in the body. I heard a voice telling me, ‘Our father is coming.’ The voice repeated it. My father is dead, I thought. The confusion below me continued. Then I saw my deceased father walking toward me, as if he were walking on a beautiful hill. He looked younger than when he died and had three children with him. He gave me a look of recognition as greeting. Then, he disappeared. I felt so sad that he was gone.
NDE due to cardiac arrest associated with cardiomyopathy from prior anthrax poisoning. Another experience described that is possible dream.

3721. Wendy A NDE 7/19/2014. NDE 7314. I was simply interested in what was going on, and was experiencing a profound feeling of peace and lack of connection with the entire situation. I always thought that if I were ever near death, I would frantically be scratching out messages to my loved ones, but I didn’t give any of them a thought! I heard them call for a priest, and I could see someone comforting my crying roommate as they escorted her out into the hall. They had trouble getting the blood transfusion started because they said my veins were collapsing and that’s the last thing I was aware of. I don’t know how much time passed, probably not much, but I suddenly ‘woke up’ as the priest was anointing me with oil.
NDE due to blood loss following hysterectomy.

3720. Yamen Probable NDE 7/19/2014. Probable NDE 5468. Nonwestern NDE from Lebanon. Original in Arabic, translated to English by Tarek. I felt relief. I felt that this explosion released my struggling soul. My soul could now roam around where ever it wanted without obstacles. I felt complete freedom. I was now free and didn’t need a passport to cross boarders or move around the earth. I could even roam around the universe, but I didn’t want to leave Earth so I wouldn’t feel lonely. I was flying very easily. It was not a dream. The feeling of flying was very real. A being that looked like the Joker (from the card game) approached me. He was very friendly and gentle. He was my guide as I traveled. He directed me to the way to Brazil. I had always wanted to see Brazil.
Probable NDE from bronchitis.

3719. Paul Probable NDE 7/15/2014. NDE 7309. I was completely filled with peace, and like a spiritual chorus of joy, much deeper and broader than euphoria. My inner being was an enormous producer of power, from deep within me, from the deepest heart of my very inner being was an immeasurable love and purity, I became a very source-generating of gushing purity and truth. This is the only power that is truth. Within me was an incredible replenishing of the power of goodness, expanding and flowing out. Like if suddenly you flipped on a million spotlights pointing out from every direction, from inside of me, each having a trillion tons of force pushing the purity of love and truth, from every which way. As I slowly floated forward. Ever increasing in goodness. This power had a sense of warm liquid, bright pure light, calm and radiant but extremely immense, and intense, energy. It grew to be as large as the sky and ever bounding from within me. My inside grew outward. It was the only true power I have ever felt.
STE probable NDE due to poisoning. Very long commentary.

3718. Tina G NDE 7/15/2014. NDE 7307. The right screen showed a happy joyous occasion, Sofie was graduating, throwing her hat in the air. Johnny was hugging the whole family. The children are well on their way to a successful life. Corey and I held hands tight we were so happy. But the pain, it was agonizing. I took a breath in but I could not breathe out. I felt as if someone had hit me with 100 sledgehammers. This is how I would live for a period of time, I would have to heal for period of years but, I would know my purpose. Could I endure such pain for my purpose?
NDE due to aneurysm rupture.á Remarkable simultaneous future visions of the consequences of returning to life or not.

3717. Bella J NDE 7/15/2014. NDE 7303. Immediately I was without a body. The best way to describe the experience is that I knew who I was, however, I did not feel pain nor was I afraid. A tremendous white light surrounded me. I felt unbelievable peace, love, harmony, goodness. I knew I was floating, that I did not have a body; I sensed goodness around me then sensed a question asking if I was ready to die. I knew I had mixed feelings.
Exceptional NDE due to being hit by ski boat.

3716. Sandra A NDE 7/15/2014. NDE 7305. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I found myself above the table. An intense light; I heard everything that was said; I witnessed my own resuscitation. I saw my body bouncing with the electric shocks.
NDE after giving birth.

3715. C C Possible NDE 7/5/2014. Possible NDE 7299. From Canada I fell down a tunnel at a high speed, tried to get a grip of the walls of the tunnel but someone always pushed my hands off and I kept on falling. That was not so nice, but suddenly I rose into a bright, white light, all was warm and I felt a deep love, indescribable, and I felt a presence and I felt a bit of shame because of this presence. I was about to see hair, I saw an outline of it, that presence was very close, but then I woke up with a nurse watching over me. I had a nurse at my bedside for 24 hours.
Possible NDE during general anesthesia. Shared 42 years later.

3714. Sandy A Probable NDE 7/5/2014. Probable NDE 7298. I asked without speaking what we were doing there. The presence said it was time for my review. I immediately felt ashamed because I knew I hadn’t done my best. Suddenly I made clear I wasn’t ready, but the door still opened. I saw a desk and books or scrolls, and a huge screen. The screen turned bright, so bright my earthly eyes would not be able to stand it. I knew I didn’t have to be ashamed. It was a learning experience, but all of a sudden I heard a loud bang and woke up.
Probable NDE due to criminal attack.

3713. Jeremiah J NDE 7/5/2014. NDE 7297. There is zero ego to Michael and his caring is deep. Apparently, I could help him with one or more of his duties. I wondered about God and he told me that God is all around us, in us, and everything. God Is. (This communication is all telepathic at this point but his use of ‘God Is’ was clearly demonstrative in nature.) He will take me to be presented to him. Quick aside here, this really confused me when I later returned. How could God be everywhere and yet I be ‘presented to him’? This took some working out for me even though the answer was clear when I was there.
NDE due to cardiac arrest during surgery.

3712. Karin F NDE 6/30/2014. NDE 7291. As I stretched out my arms I felt as though my body exploded and I was no longer in bodily form. I could not see any separation. I had no beginning or end. I was truly one with all of creation and I could only see myself as a purple and gold light amongst all the other. The being that brought me told me it was time to go back. I cried and begged her to let me stay, but she told me I had unfinished business.
NDE due to clinical death during surgery.

3711. Carmen V Shared NDE 6/30/2014. Shared NDE 7284. To me it felt like the same energy as if walking towards a party with many people: like the energy of many beings. I have a mental image of these beings being white and surrounded by whiteness. I also sensed a beautiful, comforting, peaceful music. I don’t think I heard music and I have no auditory memory of music, but somehow I sensed this wonderful music.
Shared near death experience with unborn fetus.

3710. Béatrice P NDE 6/30/2014. NDE 7290. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I felt a sense of complete well-being. I had the sensation that nothing could happen to me, and I heard myself telling my mother, ‘let me die’ without any fear. Then I found myself at about 3 meters above my body. I saw my mother shaking me in panic, but I was in the position of an observer of this situation without any stress.
Beginning of a NDE from an allergic reaction.

3709. Alba NDE 6/24/2014. NDE 7266. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Erika/Roberto. In that moment, I had the experience. I saw my body on the bed with the nurse trying to wake me up. Since she couldn’t, she started calling for help. I saw the activity around the hospital, as if there was no ceiling. I felt very welcome and wonderfully good, on something that felt like cotton. It was warm and bright. During the experience, I thought about no one, not even my children who were young at the time.
NDE from miscarriage.

3708. Samson J NDE 6/21/2014. NDE 7278. The light seemed to be the brightest white I had ever seen. As I entered the tunnel, I felt an indescribable sense of warmth, love, peace. I’m not sure how to describe it. The farther I got into the tunnel, the greater the peaceful feeling became. As I approached the end of the tunnel, I could see people waiting to greet me. One of them seemed to be my mother-in-law who had passed away 7 months previously.
NDE due to intravenous fluid overload.

3707. Haley T NDE 6/21/2014. NDE 7277. She proceeded to tell me that my daughter would need all of the love and support I could give her so that she would make the right choices when she needed to. Her road was a road less traveled. This woman explained that she knew I wanted to stay on ‘this side’ but I had to go back to take care of my children and to ‘get back on track.’ Several of the people congratulated me on the wonderful gift that I was given and told me that I was so precious to them yet I did not know any of them. The woman pulled me back from the group and told me to remember all that she said, gave me a big hug, and told me it was time to go.
NDE due to blood loss at childbirth. Interesting information that she would have a daughter even though she had been told she would have a son.

3706. Jo B NDE 6/21/2014. NDE 7275. In one strand I was aware that Light knew me better than I knew myself. Despite any of my foibles, eccentricities, poor decisions and plain old humanness, it loved me to the core. It found the seriousness with which I viewed myself amusing. It seemed to be certain that in the end, all of my problems, hurts, inflicted hurts, and my life in general would be redemptive in the sense that it would ultimately end in love. In another strand of thought it seemed as if huge amounts of information about the true nature of reality were being introduced. My mind kept seeing, and attempting to absorb, data that was contained on scrolls. A scroll would unroll and the data implant itself in me. Some of it I could comprehend. Much of it was totally above my head; gibberish. What was clear to me was the overriding message that humans, as units of consciousness, are capable of experiencing reality in ways far beyond what we typically do.
NDE due to seizure.

3705. Lis L Probable NDE 6/21/2014. Probable NDE 3859. From Sweden. Original in Swedish, translated to English by Ami The sensation in and of itself, the feeling of being heavy like lead, gave me the feeling of being in another dimension. As if the body and soul emerged from different dimensions, and that this results in a splintering within our human body.
Probable NDE that resulted in PTSD (Post traumatic stress syndrome)

3704. Salem NDE 6/14/2014. NDE 7271. From the UK Next to the being was my father who had just died. My father was dressed in the same clothes that he was wearing when he died a few days earlier. My father spoke to the being saying, ‘My son won’t let go of me.’ He said it in an Indian language called Gujarati, which we speak. A long queue of people was still shuffling in to my left, waiting to go up these white stairs. At that moment, the being came right up close to my face and SNARLED ever so loudly. Its teeth of bright white fangs and grisly hair really scared me. It was telling me to let go of my father. I let go instantly. I was holding the process and queue up as it was my father’s turn to go into the light, and I wouldn’t let go of him.
NDE with atypical content due to passing out. Contributor is Muslim from the UK.

3703. Kat P Probable NDE 6/14/2014. Probable NDE 7269. I found myself fully aware and present, yet all that I could see was the most beautiful of all-consuming light, everywhere just the light. It was like the center of a flame. I had an overwhelming feeling of ok-ness, like more than love, more than peace and beyond serenity. It was so good that words cannot describe it. Then I heard my own voice say, ‘But he is only 9,’ referring to my son. It was a moment of doubt.
Probable NDE while on a ventilator with adult respiratory distress syndrome and multi-organ failure.

3702. Sally A NDE 6/14/2014. NDE 7265. From South Africa. I started feeling extremely cold and saw a ray of sunlight. I started recalling events in my life in flashes. I remember thinking I must vomit all the vile out my life before getting near the warm light. I just wanted to reach the light. I was extremely cold but not panicky anymore. After vomiting, I got so very close to touching the sunray. All I felt was extreme bliss, peace, love, and so much warmth. I felt myself exhaling my last breath. I was completely at peace and felt a joy that I cannot describe.
NDE due to unconsciousness of unknown cause. Experience happened 4 days prior to it being shared.

3701. Daniel H NDE 6/14/2014. NDE 7264. A tunnel came into view and it was smoky. Further up into the tunnel, I saw a light and it began to clear. I told myself I was glad that I was going up instead of down. I saw my body lying on the ground but my eyes were level with the grass. It was daylight where I was. I saw an elderly white haired man sitting in a chair with a boy with long hair sitting next to him on a stool. There were woods in the background. I remember most that the elderly man told me to make peace on earth because I couldn’t stay yet. I told them I would see them again and then I re-entered my body.
NDE at age 12 due to head injury. Shared 52 years later.

3700. Michael Joseph NDE 6/9/2014. NDE 7210. I ended up with a life review, and was escorted around ‘the other side’ by a being who was my guardian angel/teacher whom I came to call ‘professor’ but he had an incredible sense of humor. I say ‘he’ with tongue in cheek because ‘he’ was neither a he nor a she. I saw what happened to true atheists (apparently, I was opened minded enough that I didn’t qualify). I got to see various ‘heavens’ and asked to see what ‘Hell’ was like if there was one (and there was but it was nothing like I expected). I even asked to meet Jesus and apologize only to meet a man that was nothing like I expected and was given interesting historical facts I was later able to verify.
Two NDEs as a teenager.

3699. Sonya M NDE 6/7/2014. NDE 7263. Caution, Graphic Content. I was transported into a peaceful, white light that made me feel like I was going home after a deployment. I saw images of my life all around me. When I was on the other side of the light, I saw such beauty. There were gardens upon gardens of colorful flowers, and the sky was white. I saw a person who led me further inside while saying to me, ‘It is not your time; you have work left to do.’
NDE due to being stabbed in a criminal attack.

3698. Wanda S Possible NDE 6/7/2014. Possible NDE 7262. I had the experience of images of my past appearing to me briefly. It was a montage. They were familiar yet distant. They were not memories that are available for me to recollect. I do not understand the importance of those images or even if they are important. The best way to describe them is if you are familiar with the Harry Potter franchise, they were similar to the moving photographs.
Possible NDE while under anesthesia.

3697. Sabina Possible NDE 6/7/2014. Possible NDE 7261. I forgot about everything I had left and wanted to be there where the Being was. I knew it would be the end of all my fears, I would never be sad again, I would never cry, and I would never be worried. I knew this would be the end of everything. I was quite far from the Being and I wanted to move and get closer but I couldn’t. Then I heard the voice. The voice didn’t belong to a woman or man and it didn’t speak in any language. I didn’t see the Being opening Its mouth (if it had any); I somehow heard it in my head. This voice was so soothing, calming, and sweet. It said only two words, ‘Not now.’
Possible NDE at age 15 at night while sleeping.

3696. Glen D NDE 6/7/2014. NDE 7260. At the time I was 46 years old and didn’t see all that well without my glasses, but I remember watching as new cardiac nurses entered the room to assist. These are nurses who I’d had no contact with when I entered the room for surgery. Oddly enough, from my vantage point I could read the names on their badges, Landers and McCarthy, and I had no glasses on.
NDE due to cardiac arrest. Remarkable later verification of OBE observations during experience.

3695. Robert T NDE 8/9/2014 & 6/7/2014. NDE 7343/7256. In the distance, there was a soft and peaceful reddish glow. It grew larger and larger. It seemed red but as I got closer, it appeared peach-colored, pink, and even orange. To this date, describing the colors is still difficult for me because I just can’t say I have ever experienced colors so vivid and brilliant, almost like the phases of a cloud cluttered sunset or sunrise when the colors evolve with the slipping sun and reflected onto the clouds.
NDE due to end-stage AIDS.

3694. Lou N Probable NDE 10/18/2014 & 6/7/2014. Probable NDE 7426/7255. I distinctly remember floating over my body because I could look down and see the doctors working on me. I also remember going to the waiting room to try to tell my parents everything would be okay. At this point, I felt a feeling of warmth and great contentment. The warmer I became, the closer I was drawn to a glowing white warm light. I was very young at this time.
Probable NDE during surgery for complication of appendicitis at age 7. Shared 60 years later.

3693. Hamad A NDE 12/20/2013. NDE 16072. Non-Western NDE From Iran There was no fear or nightmares in any of these experiences; on the contrary, there was a special feeling of peace and warmth. I could feel the difference between the physical and spiritual world. I could feel that physical laws like gravity or pain do not apply to this spirit world. You can see clearly in dark of the night and you can look right into the sun without burning your eyes. I could feel that I was protected by an invisible force. I didn’t feel lonely or lost at all, it is hard to describe. It was like there were eyes watching me but I could not see them. Although one expects to feel distressed, the dominant feeling there 3693was love. But I did miss my loved ones. The space I was in was light with a special color of green and yellow. I felt like I was on some kind of edge or boundary, where one side had one color and the other side a different color. I could go to one side and return. I could see the light and colors, but could not see any source for it.
Combat NDE from war with Iraq.

3692. Andrea J NDE 6/5/2014. NDE 7252. From the UK I was in the operating bed looking down at myself with lots of nurses and doctors around me. There was so much blood. Then I was pulled upwards in the sky. My vision was blurry, but I saw the most amazing bright lights and colors and then a large building. I was stopped and was told it wasn’t my time and to go back.
NDE due to blood loss at childbirth.

3691. Mary C NDE 6/5/2014. NDE 7251. From Canada. I went from being frozen, quivering, silently screaming, to feeling incredible warmth and happiness. I was bathed in light and no longer felt wet, weighed down by ice, water, clothes or worries. I was perfectly warm, joyous, loved and peaceful. The light surrounded me but also seemed to direct me forward. I felt the same kind of perfect and overwhelming love I felt when I first held each of my sons.
NDE due to drowning in icy water at age 9.

3690. Greta H FDE 6/5/2014. FDE 7249. I was on the Mississippi River and stepped off a sandbar without a life jacket. The current caught me and took me under. My brother was near, and I tried to grab onto him to keep me up. He was not strong enough, and I was going down. I looked up and could see the light above me and my brother swimming at the top of the river, which is unusual, since you can’t see your hand under the water in the Mississippi. It is very muddy. I was struggling and flailing my arms at first to stay afloat, but then my life started passing before my eyes. I saw myself swinging on the swing set, climbing trees and playing with my dolls. I was totally calm and peaceful during this time. Then all of a sudden, I heard a swooshing sound, and my other, older brother was grabbing me pulling me up to the top. He saved my life.
Fear-death experience due to drowning at age 12

3689. Sherrye KS Probable NDE 6/5/2014. Probable NDE 7246. I was back on the bank of the black river. Again, I looked across, and this time I saw Paradise. The bank of the other shore was made of crystalline sand that sparkled like diamonds in the beautiful, bright light that shone there. Beyond the beach grew beautiful, lush foliage, all kinds of beautiful plants. My eyes were drawn back down the beach where I saw, to my amazement, my friend, Penny. She was dressed in beautiful flowing garments. She smiled and beckoned for me. I saw movement in the foliage and saw the head of an albino tiger emerge from the shrubs.
NDE due to car accident with head injury.

3688. Brenda R NDE 6/5/2014. NDE 7245. As I was going backward, I saw three different events in my life that were part of the future. Two of those events gave me great shudders and a feeling of relief when I had completely passed them. Then we were over the top of the hospital and descending through the roof, passing different floors and seeing people walking and working on those floors. Eventually we were in the operating room, looking down upon my body and the two doctors and nurse. I heard them talking about me. The doctor said, ‘I will not lose this patient over such a simple operation.’ They were working around my head.
NDE due to apparent complication of tubal ligation surgery.

3687. Simon NDE 6/5/2014. NDE 7243. My first memory was my fiancΘe coming to me. She was standing over me saying, ‘Wake up Steve, you have to wake up’. I could see her face, calm but insistent. It was almost like I was late for work. The next thing I remember, I am awake, face down in the lake with a mouth full of water. I cleared my lungs as I tried to swim toward the back of the boat. I got up on the back of the boat and climbed into the aft cockpit and climbed onto the main deck. I was expecting to see my fiancΘe standing there. She was not.
NDE due to apparent head injury.á Encounter with living person during experience, which is relatively rare.á Experience happened two days before it was shared.

3686. Ana A Probable NDE 6/5/2014. Probable NDE 7230. From Columbia. I just thought, ‘Well, finally the time has come and I am happy, because I want to depart. It has been accomplished.’ I proceeded to go to the light, but when I tried to walk in the door that embraced the light, I heard many voices, which I identified. It was the voice of my uncle saying that what has been done is done and there’s no going back; it was my decision. I heard my mother’s cry, but it did not stop me; my aunt also said that she couldn’t believe what I had just done.
NDE from a reaction to medication and marijuana.

3685. Julian of Norwich NDE 5/26/2014. Probable NDE 7240. Julian of Norwich probably experienced a near death experience on May 13, 1373 AD. Julian of Norwich, her real name unknown, lived in relative seclusion as an English anchoress (a type of female monk) during the tail end of the middle ages. Although not a household name, she has been revered by Christian mystics throughout the centuries. Few books survive from that era of 641 years ago. Of particular note, ‘Showings’ was the first book written by a woman in the English language. I find it intriguing that the first book written by a woman in the English language was about a near death experience. The quality of Julian of Norwich’s shines in both literary complexity and spiritual maturity. In my opinion, the writings of Chaucer, her contemporary, pales in comparison. Edmund Colledge says this: ‘Julian’s book is by far the most profound and difficult of all medeival English spiritual writings.’
NDE from 1373 A.D.

3684. Francesca NDE 5/26/2014. NDE 7238. Next thing I am seeing myself at a distance but not ground level. There were people all around me looking down at me. I could see the emergency vehicles and lights for what seemed like a mile in length.
NDE due to motorcycle accident.

3683. Malavika H NDE 5/26/2014. NDE 7237. From India. I saw my grandmother who had passed when I was 15. I was really close to her as a child, since both my parents worked late and she raised me. I was so happy to see her. She was really into praying and always attended bhajans, etc. I hugged her and told her I missed her. She told me she missed me, too, and that she was really proud of where I was and who I had become. I was depressed over some issues and asked her if I could stay there with her. She told me, ‘No.’ She said that I had a lot to achieve. I needed to be there for my parents, my other grandmother and my cats. She kissed me on my forehead.
Non-Western NDE from India due to faint.

3682. Leslie Probable NDE 5/26/2014. Probable NDE 7236. Once that stopped, I realized I was hovering just above my body, facing the ceiling. The room was filled with a soft, glowing light. Then the light fixture in the ceiling lit up. I was very curious about this and wanted to float up and look at it. After I floated to the ceiling and looked at the light fixture, I turned around and looked at my body. I really felt no emotion about my body. I was actually very calm and felt extremely peaceful with all that was happening.
Probable NDE at age 13 due to pneumonia.

3680. Penny C NDE 5/26/2014. NDE 7234. I was greeted by my great-grandmother who looked so young. There were so many other deceased family members with big smiles on their faces. Some of them died before I was even born. I knew of some by being told by my mom. Everyone was introducing themselves to me, and telling me who they were. I felt this love like out of this world. It was as if they were waiting for me, they knew I was coming, and were prepared to greet me. I was not judged by my lifestyle on the earth, but I remember my great-grandmother showing me so many things as well as explaining them to me.
NDE due to faint at age 15.

3679. Nicole E Friend Experience 5/26/2014. Secondhand Other 32304. Mich’l said that he remembers me stopping for gas and asking the attendant for directions to the hospital (TRUE). He said that he wanted me for his mommy because he liked my voice when I was speaking to the attendant. ( I did stop for gas and I was kind of lost going to a rural hospital, so I asked for directions). Then he said that he remembers that the parking lot was partially closed for construction, so I had to park on a corner and run to the hospital… Then Mich’l said the most incredible thing. He said that while his “real mom” was in labor, he asked God if I could be his mom because he knew that his “real mom” wouldn’t survive very long, and he was afraid of being alone on Earth. Apparently he was told that he couldn’t have me for his “real mom” but that everything would be OK and he would still get to be around me during his life.
The most remarkable pre-birth remembrance ever shared with us. Exceptionally detailed observations of boy about to be born confirmed years later by a friend present at his birth. Nicola E did not share her email address- we are asking her to email us.

3678. Michele G NDE 5/17/2014. NDE 7229. At this same time, I felt as if I were 8 or 10 feet tall. I was looking down at the dash/steering wheel, but I was much higher than I would be if I were seated in the car. I heard/felt a voice asking me, ‘Do you want to go/leave?’ My response was indignant. I had things to do. I wasn’t finished. How dare I be asked to leave!
NDE due to car accident.

3677. Rick E Possible NDE 5/17/2014. Possible NDE 7227. Drug or medication overdose. It seemed as though the planet kept moving, but I didn’t. I traveled through the solar system and the galaxy and the universe seeing nebul’ along the way. I finally arrived at a place where there was a cylinder made of rotating lights, not unlike a tunnel. As I got closer, beings appeared to be angel-like, and I felt as if I might know them. The most important thing to me overall was the feeling of being free. No fear. Total awe. It was the best I ever felt in my existence.
Possible NDE due to unspecified ‘drug or medication overdose’.

3676. Tina H NDE 5/17/2014. NDE 7226. Then everything went black and I felt a peace that I had never felt before or again. I was no longer in emotional pain. I was not angry or scared. It was the peace I had always been searching for. Then suddenly, I was back on the floor of the bathroom as the paramedics arrived.
NDE due to alcohol overdose.

3675. Stephanie D NDEs 5/17/2014. NDEs 7224. There was a Being standing next to me on my right. He was so radiating love and warmth coming from him. It was unlike the feeling of love here on Earth. It was similar to being in someone’s arms you deeply love, feeling warm, protected, and happy and then multiply that times 1,000. His love was radiating out and filling me with that same love.
NDEs at age 4, due to blood loss following operation, and age 25 due to heavy object falling on her.

3674. Beverly L NDE 10/26/2013. NDE 22944. I was four years old. I fell and injured my head. I lost consciousness. Then, I was above myself, aware of the injured child. I connected to the injured me in a way I cannot explain. I was older yet aware of both of us. I could see from both views… The “older” me was very intent on me focusing on what I needed to do to be ok. And I felt in both senses of age an extreme importance.
NDE at age 4 due to head injury.

3673. Mahmoud NDE 5/14/2014. NDE 7189. Non-Western NDE From Iran. Original in Persian, translated to English by Shadi. I went to a different place. It was quiet and pleasant. I felt very light. The feeling was so great I can’t describe it. I could taste sweetness inside me; everything was beautiful. I was in that moment for around 30 minutes. In that moment, I knew that whatever I wanted I could get. For a second I thought ‘who am I?’ I saw my whole life flash before me like a movie. I could go to any time in my life’s review. It was amazing. I felt like my intelligence and thoughts were beyond normal. I did not feel like I didn’t understand, it was a great feeling and I wished I could stay here and not leave. It was having the thoughts that I was wondering, ‘What can I do?’ as I could do anything.
NDE from being knocked unconscious.

3672. Doris Possible NDE 5/14/2014. Possible NDE 7218. From Venezuela. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana. I listened to what was going on out of the building, but I saw myself in the hall just as I was dressed and with the same asthma attack I had at that time. I think I was out of my body, but I was not scared; I knew I was feeling sick. I could still listen to what was going on in the street. I knew what was happening to me.
Possible NDE, because it is hard to tell which of the experiences happened at the time of death or unconsciousness.

3671. Marisol S NDE 5/10/2014. NDE 7222. I was surrounded by black endless space all around me. I stopped flying forward when I realized I was in a different place other than earth. I looked up, there was endless space above like it went on for eternity. I looked down and the black endless space went on forever. I looked left and right and it was the same thing. I wasn’t scared at all. Then I looked at my hands, I didn’t have any hands all I could see was not my body but the outline of my body and hands. It was all the colors of the rainbow in stripes or red, yellow, green, blue, purple etc. Then I said to myself ‘f$&@ this I’m not staying here!’
NDE due to accidental overdose of heroin.á Apparently given a medication that rapidly reversed the action of narcotics (like heroin) on the body.

3670. Rachel R NDE 5/10/2014. NDE 7220. I then was greeted by 5-10 golden ‘orbs,’ which I felt I knew. It was like a reunion. I felt the most joy and ecstasy I had ever felt when they greeted me. I knew them within. One orb approached me and showed me that I was the same. When it combined with me, I realized that I was also a golden orb.
NDE due to being hit by car as pedestrian.

3669. Gail A NDE 5/10/2014. NDE 7219. Then came a judgment of sorts, where I was judged on the things I had done and the things I would do in my future life. This upset me as I felt it was mean to punish or judge me for things I hadn’t done yet. I wasn’t judged on big things, more small instances of intent. It was the little things that mattered and not the big things.
NDE due to criminal attack at age 14.

3668. Ray NDE 5/10/2014. NDE 7216. From Saudi Arabia. I had a dark view of what’s across the street from me despite the bright lights. I saw bright colors and parts of my life in less than a second.
Struck by car at age 9.

3667. Domi L Probable NDE 5/5/2014. Probable NDE 7215. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I went into the tunnel of light. I had no body. I felt a well-being, as such that does not exist on earth. I had neither sentiment nor past. On the other side of the tunnel, I felt millions of presences, that also had no sentiments, but who were feeling neither bad nor good. They didn’t know evil anymore. On the other hand, I didn’t see any animals.
Probable NDE from an auto accident.

3666. Robyn F NDE 5/3/2014. NDE 7209. I left my body and passed through a tunnel of light, which took me to a door of brilliant light. The door opened. I knelt down and saw that I was dressed in a dark robe of some sort. As I knelt, I looked up to see Jesus in front of me nailed to the cross. He looked down directly into my eyes. I’ve never seen eyes like those before or since. As he looked into my eyes, I asked him, without speaking words, ‘What do I do?’ He answered without speaking words, ‘Forgive him.’ As he ‘said’ the words, it was done. The forgiveness happened in that very instant.
Exceptional NDE due to brutal murder attempt by husband she was going to divorce. Remarkable communication with Jesus that saved her life.

3665. Lesley H Possible NDE 5/3/2014. Possible NDE 7213. From the UK When I arrived at one of the doorways, an official looking man asked me if I knew I had died. I felt surprised at first. Then I recognized that I had died but was not fearful. He asked me what I wanted to do and that’s what I remember most significantly; that I actually had a choice; a concept I had never contemplated in everyday life. He told me if I wanted more life I could go back but if I wanted to pass over and go through the doorway I could and I knew that this would be joyous and eternal but I already knew it would also be there forever, whenever I decided to go.
Dream vs NDE at time of hospitalization with life-threatening pneumonia.

3664. Ryan F Probable FDE 5/3/2014. Probable FDE 7212. All I can remember is floating above both my girlfriend and me as if watching a scene from a movie, rather than being involved in the accident. It was brief and as the car came to a halt in a nearby field, I was back in my body again, looking over at my girlfriend.
Probable Fear-Death Experience vs Possible NDE due to car accident at age 16.

3663. Francis G NDE 5/3/2014. NDE 7208. I was knocking on the gates of heaven, only I could not get in. A spirit told me that it was not my time because I had to do beautiful things and help mankind and nature. I argued with that energy and told him/her/it that my body was mangled. How am I going to do anything with such a damaged body? I was told how, but not in English, nor Hungarian or German, but by thoughts projected into my spirit. That is when I knew there was more to me.
NDE due to accident on motorcycle.

3662. Angelo NDE 4/30/2014. NDE 7192. From Spain. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana. I was watching myself as if I were floating above the hospital bed, observing myself and the doctors below. I was aware of experiencing vague memories about my life: but nothing concrete. It was like a very quick movie. I also noted that I was entering a place that seemed to be something like a tunnel. I didn’t feel scared at all, on the contrary, I felt very peaceful. In fact, I felt so well that I didn’t want to come back!
NDE from surgery complications—allergic anaphylactic shock reaction to penicillin.

3661. Jiří H NDE 4/30/2014. NDE 7160. From the Czech Republic. Original in Czech, translated to English by Rick. I found myself standing in a meadow or in a field. Slightly to my right was a clump of trees, a small forest, and it was rather far away. It was a beautiful, sun shining summer day. I did not see it directly but I felt and perceived it. To my left were two deer, a larger one and smaller one. The clump of trees seemed to me very enticing and I had a very pleasant feeling.
NDE from a fall.

3660. Muhammad E Possible NDE 4/29/2014. Possible NDE 7194. Non-Western from Iran. Original in Farsi, translated to English by Shadi. The entities spoke again telling me ‘do not take any more breaths we want to take you with us’. I again stopped my breathing and the entities appeared again. This time I felt light and I saw myself as the bright light. I was floating up towards the tunnel of light. I heard voices of entities who were calling me. A lift appeared in the room and two entities came out of the lift. All the light ended and the tunnel was no longer.
Possible NDE from sleep apnea.

3659. Nicolas F NDE 4/29/2014. NDE 7204. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. It was like a hand carrying you, but floating would also be an accurate description. I’m in a tunnel, a kind of gigantic vault, dark and lit up at the same time. I’m surrounded by dozens of people, all more thoughtful, gentle, smiling, and kinder than the others. They all look at me but I’m unable to distinguish their faces. Men and women, I can distinguish gender. In order to describe with words, indescribable feelings, I would say that you have a 360° vision, and we are conscious about everything.
NDE from surgery complications

3658. Carolane B NDE 4/27/2014. NDE 7205. From Belgium. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I also remember that at the moment when I was unconscious, it was as if I was floating in the air in a lying position. I felt good, at peace.
Child NDE from a fall.

3657. Luce NDE 4/27/2014. NDE 7195. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I was still falling and falling until the moment when I saw a strong light. At once I felt appeased. I headed for this light and heard my first name called several times. This call came from elsewhere, not from the place where I was (this white tunnel). I didn’t know what to do and all at once I felt like I returned heavily into my body, whereas just before, I was feeling very light.
NDE from going unconscious.

3656. Amanda NDE 4/26/2014. NDE 7203. From this moment on, I experienced a dark tunnel with flashes of neon lights of all colors, where I was traveling full speed in a form of a tornado. At the end, I saw a white bright light, as I got closer it got wider. All of a sudden, I was in a standing position surrounded by the most beautiful place I have ever seen: the peace, grass, trees and a very beautiful music with laughter coming from somewhere.
NDE due to accidental narcotic medication ingestion at age 14.

3655. Hannah F NDE 4/26/2014. NDE 7202. There was a waterfall in front of us and beautiful scenery. I would probably call it a beautiful garden. However, everything was natural. I remember a feeling of love and reassurance. I don’t remember what the man was telling me, but he was speaking for a long time. It felt like hours. I remember being shocked at a few things he said. Now, in my experience, I was ME but I wasn’t ‘HANNAH’. I knew myself, but not as Hannah. I don’t remember what was spoken but I remember the feelings I felt. All I remember him saying was, ‘It’s time to go back now.’
NDE due to fainting at age 16.

3654. Micella NDE 4/26/2014. NDE 7201. I was in a field of tall grass, and was with a young person of around 5 to 10 years old. We were ‘playing’, although I am not sure what the game was. I kept telling the young person that I had to go back, to which he/she (unsure of gender) would respond, ‘Please stay a little longer.’ The idea of staying longer was a peaceful one and the being was not upset at my protest to go. However, it continued to encourage me to stay a little longer. The pastoral scene was so pleasant it, perhaps, was difficult to leave. I remember I just knew that I had to return back though, as it was either not my time or that I had unfinished business in the other place.
NDE due to syncopal episode at age 17.

3653. Michael DP NDE 4/26/2014. NDE 7200. From India. Then there was peace, a very strong sense of peace and awareness of death. I started moving upwards and away from my body. I hardly moved a few feet, when I saw my sister in the next room reaching out to switch off the fan. I saw her through an opening which connected the two rooms, but that view was not possible from where my body was stuck. As soon as she switched off the fan, I was again in my body for maybe 2 seconds before I lost all consciousness.
Non-Western NDE from India. NDE due to electrocution at age 10.

3652. James A NDE 4/26/2014. NDE 7199. From Australia. It made it known that it wouldn’t be deciding my fate. It would be my choice if I died or not. I felt so scared; I didn’t want to die. Before this experience, I was numb and bitter, like a zombie. Now, I felt that previous passion for life I had when I was younger. This passion emerged as fear. This entity’s personal desire was for me to come with it, or that’s what it felt like. Like a magnet slowly pulling something to it. I expressed an automatically desire to ‘just see how things are down there’. My eyes opened briefly, as soon as this happened. I was slightly out of my body floating like an orb: it was so peaceful, the foggy green of the water, the mixture of warmth and coolness.
NDE due to drowning at age 17. Experience happened only three months ago.

3651. Kate NDE 4/26/2014. NDE 7198. I had a vacuum-like feeling. I was sucked into a field of unearthly brilliant color with a large tree to my right in the distance and feeling of a non-human escort companion on my left. It was a feeling that I did not have to worry about my children or anything that I was leaving behind. All would be well. All was well and good; but then, knowledge that I could not stay.
NDE due to bleeding after c’sarian section delivery.

3650. Tracy S Possible NDE 4/26/2014. Possible NDE 7197. The next thing I remember, I felt that I was lying face-up floating beyond the hospital ceiling light. There was extremely bright light everywhere, which was warm. I slid backwards a little until it seemed my face was right against the ceiling lights. I was still face-up, like floating in a pool, and looked down at myself in the bed. I looked down and to the right, I saw my doctor at the stand beside my bed, writing in my file and checking my IV. I tried to speak to him or wave to him to get his attention but nothing worked. I kept trying, but at the same time, I was floating down, backwards, ‘into my body’.
Probable anesthesia experience vs possible NDE following delivery with much blood loss.

3649. Rebekah J NDE 4/26/2014. NDE 7196. I saw the most beautiful colors like a swirling rainbow tunnel. It was so bright. I saw shadowy figures like angels. I heard a voice. It was all around me. I do not know if it was male or female. It said you have a choice, ‘you can continue on or go back.’ I thought for a moment then I thought, ‘I want to grow up and my parents would miss me’. The sense of peace and tranquility was overwhelming but I chose to go back.
NDE at age 12 due to drowning.

3648. Patrice S Probable NDE 4/26/2014. Probable NDE 32302. I was 5 years of age. I was in a blizzard. I was hit by a drunk driver. I was on the operating table. I quickly was up over my body looking over my body watching the operating room doctors work on my body. I was next to a presence in which I believe was God. I was told by my mother I was screaming in the operating room. I was at peace happy and calm with God. I was told I was to young to go back.
Probable NDE at age 5 during surgery, and later in life encounter with Virgin Mary.

3647. Monique B NDE 4/26/2014. NDE 7193. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. At the third arrest I ‘left’ and found myself being in a landscape, ‘David Hamilton-type’, rosy, golden, soft, and pleasant. I was walking on clouds. A situation so very comfortable that I remember thinking, ‘If this is being dead, it’s really good.’ I continued to advance on the clouds in this cozy setting; to my surprise, after about some moments, I met a white bright silhouette (an angel, the blessed virgin?) who ‘talked’ to me saying ‘you have to return, your son (of 7 years at that time) needs you.’
NDE from going unconscious.

3646. Teresa P NDE 4/26/2014. NDE 7191. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana. I felt I was abandoning my body through the same opening where I had bumped my head, I got out, and I didn’t even stop to look back. I didn’t look at anything in the room. I simply elevated in a diagonal line towards a light that I saw. I felt great peace, happiness, vital force, health, harmony and a great expansion. There was nothing like gravity. The light was there and I had to reach it. A soft breeze, it was the ideal weather, the breeze caressed me. I felt like flying, I floated lightly. Then I began to listen to voices coming from this light. They were very happy, very happy repeating, ‘There comes Tere! There comes Tere!’
NDE from a fall and going unconscious.

3645. Ronnie D NDE 4/12/2014. NDE 7188. As I approached the light, I felt no fear nor was I worried about anything. I felt everything was okay. As I walked out of the tunnel, everything got very cloudy, but I could make out figures of people walking towards me. I did not see their faces; they just walked by me on my left and right. I walked further away from the tunnel and got scared again. Afraid that I would not find my way back. I kept hearing water dripping like being in a tunnel with an echo. I walked some more and came upon a pair of steps. The steps were solid gold.
NDE at age 15 due to sledding on snow into the path of oncoming car. Remarkable sense of slowing car that might have saved his life. Apparent inexplicable recovery after being run over by car.

3644. Lauren NDE 4/12/2014. NDE 7184. From France. Originally from Algiers. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I saw a thick rope of a silvery white color coming out between my lungs, and what shocked me at once, was that this rope was going straight from my body towards the window. While looking through the window to see where this rope was leading, I saw three women holding the other end of the rope. They were suspended in the air holding the end of the rope and were pulling. They were upside down, their feet towards the sky and their hands and faces towards me still pulling the rope. I panicked, understanding that if they would pull too strongly I would be dying.
NDE from going unconscious.

3643. CB Possible NDE 4/12/2014. Possible NDE 7183. While I was deep asleep, all of a sudden, I was floating above and behind the Doctor’s left shoulder, observing as he carefully sutured up my knee. I could hear classical music playing. I could see the nurse, the anesthesiologist, and myself. I remember feeling no pain, no temperature, nothing but interest in the work the doctor was doing with those stitches. If I recall correctly, there were over 50 of them
Anesthesia Possible NDE, no apparent life-threatening event at the time.

3642. Marny NDE 4/12/2014. NDE 7182. I was very calm watching myself and felt no pain. The bright lights were intense, but I wasn’t ‘heading’ anywhere, it was extremely fast, maybe 20 seconds. I felt a slight push and I was back in my body. I saw myself being revived on the delivery table. I saw the medical staff from above.
NDE due to complication of delivery.

3641. Kristine J NDE 4/12/2014. NDE 7181. I had no idea of time passing or memories of time passing but eventually I found myself with a woman. At the time, it was natural, like meeting someone I had always known, however, I couldn’t say who it was now. We were somewhere/ nowhere: no walls, floors, no ceiling, no up or down. It was just she and I in darkness, with a light partly behind her. While talking, she and I ‘went,’ it was like we were just ‘there.’ We watched my kids in class at school. One of my twins was telling her teacher about her new step-mom as of the up-coming weekend. I was happily watching, when it dawned on me what ‘step mom’ meant. Without speaking, the woman I was with said, ‘Yes, I was dead.’
NDE due to H1N1 bird flu. Remarkable and detailed future awareness of how her husband would meet another woman and marry her. However, she recovered and the future she saw would not happen.

3640. Maime S NDE 4/12/2014. NDE 7179. From South Africa I remember the tunnel, but it isn’t like many describe it. It was more like the tunnel is flowing over me. Each place I looked, there are pieces of my life playing back. I saw experiences I had not remembered. The feeling was absolute peace and calm. I found myself loving that I could almost feel. I felt the emotions with each ‘movie’ experience of my life I was watching. In these experiences I was with family that had passed and some that had not. There were lots of experiences from when I was very young. It was a feeling of safety and love.
NDE due to allergic reaction. Prominent life review.

3639. Rebecca P NDE 4/5/2014. NDE 7177. I thought that I would have to stay in this lonely place for eternity and think constantly about how I was wrong to inhale the nitrous. I let my child and my family down. I was sad, but I accepted what I had done wrong and wished that I could have done better. It felt like I was there an eternity. Once I began to feel remorse, I heard a voice speak to me. I can’t recall it sounding like it had a specific gender, nor was it a voice I recognized. I never saw anything as it spoke. I remained in this darkness while it spoke to me. It said, ‘You don’t belong here. You need to find something in life that you love, and get out.’
NDE due to inhaling nitrous oxide without oxygen.

3638. Ivan NDE 4/5/2014. NDE 7175. From the UK. As I thrashed and panicked, a great calm came over me with a sense of ‘all will be well’. This occurred during the underwater phase of drowning. I sensed peace, calm; love awaited me upon my death. The intervention of an adult, who pulled me out of the water, simultaneously snatched me back from a growing sense of calm and peace. While ‘calmed’ I was outside my body, looking at myself thrashing in the water. Slowly, I felt myself drift even further away, still watching me.
NDE due to drowning at age 10.

3637. Daniel M Probable NDE 4/5/2014. Probable NDE 7174. A being appeared and smiled. At that very moment, I realized that I was no longer in possession of my physical body. I had no conception of time but I had many thoughts. The thoughts were of my loved ones. I had a heightened sense of awareness, another being appeared between the first being and myself. I could not see any lips moving but I heard the second being say, ‘I have chains, locks and keys to those locks, he is not yours’. The expression on the first beings face became angry, and then he disappeared. The second being slowly turned towards me and smiled a warm loving smile. I, at that very moment, knew that I was being sent back.
Probable NDE due to motorcycle accident.

3636. Steve T NDE 3/31/2014. NDE 7172. From the Phillipines During this time, I was somewhere in the clouds. I saw my father, who had died some 20 years before, and felt others I knew were all standing around further back behind him. My father walked towards me and said, ‘Son it’s not your time, you’ll have to go back.’ I felt so wonderful. Then a voice so powerful and strong, as if echoing in the fog, said, ‘He has to go back now.’ My father faded away and I sat up in bed. The nursing sister and staff could not believe it, as I had died. She told me that the medical staff had done everything they could to bring me back, but nothing would work.
NDE due to being hit on head.

3635. Mary W NDE 3/31/2014. NDE 7170. I was looking on from above them. I heard everything they said and did. The doctor couldn’t get a central line on me. The scene was chaos.
NDE due to severe trauma.

3634. Eugenia M Possible NDE 3/31/2014. Possible NDE 7168. I remember a floating feeling and a very warm soft light. I was in a beautiful field full of wild flowers. The light was coming over the horizon, like a morning dawn! I was completely at peace, feeling only surrounding warmth, light and total love. As I floated toward the light, I was very eager to reach it but then a shadowy form was off to my left. I felt a touch on my left shoulder and a voice saying ‘it’s not your time. You have to go back!’
Possible NDE due to suicide attempt with medications.

3633. Serge D NDE 3/31/2014. NDE 7166. From Hungary. In that moment a sucking force coming from above, drags me into a higher stream where I literally left the earth, passing the moon and all the solar system, it felt quite fresh, a bit cold, and I felt a bit of panic. I saw the whole Universe floating around me or I was floating inside these elements. There are no words to describe the view, the feeling, or the experience. I stand, and contemplate the beauty of the big bang theory, the evolution, the balance between good and less good.
NDE due to car accident.

3632. SW N Possible NDE 5/1/2006. Possible NDE 2651. From Canada On the way I was starting to lose consciousness. I knew I was in the car, but I had no sense of time or reality. I had peripheral vision and could see the trees and sky on the sides of the road speeding by. In front of me was a long tunnel of bright, yet soft, very white light. Apparently I was talking, but I don’t remember. I was saying that I didn’t want to go to the party.
Possible NDE from allergic reaction to a wasp sting.

3631. Victoria P Probable NDE 5/1/2006. Probable NDE 2650. I could see my body on the operating table. I could also see and hear the medical staff, but was not interested in what they were saying. I was surrounded by God and bright white light. God comforted me and invited me to heaven. God also gave me the choice to come back to life to raise my three year old son. Since, I was a single mom, I am glad I made the choice to return.
Probable NDE from surgery complications.

3630. Heidi C Probable NDE 3/13/2014. Probable NDE 7164. The next thing I remember is waking up in the most beautiful warm, golden white light. I was bathed in it. The warmth I felt was indescribable. I remember when I was little staying at my grandma and grandpa’s house. When I slept over at their house I always slept the most soundly and peacefully. I felt safe, warm and secure. The light and warmth felt like that only a million times more wonderful. I felt like I was wrapped in Angel wings. I had no physical body I just was. I was surrounded by loved ones and other beings, they felt like angels and saints. I couldn’t see them but I sensed they were there surrounding me. I kept receiving three messages telepathically: I kept hearing that I was unconditionally loved, that things are always they way that they are supposed to be and that everything would always be alright. I knew that my husband, family, friends and my babies would be okay. I knew that they would always be okay. I knew that if I didn’t go back everything would be fine that everything was always the way it was supposed to be. The love, peace, contentment, happiness and unconditional love I felt were indescribable. I felt like I was home.
Probable NDE while under general anesthesia.

3629. Abigail K Probable NDE 3/23/2014. Probable NDE 7163. The being took me over to ‘sit’. I still don’t know how. He or she said to me without words, ‘You have to go back’. I responded defiantly, ‘No I’m staying home!’ The Being, again, made the same statement and I, again, refused until he or she just bore something in me: The knowledge that I did indeed have more to do and needed to return. I was to have children and I needed to know about the availability of this great unspeakable love, which I referred to as God.
Probable NDE due to apparent episode of apnea while sleeping. Remarkable encounter with a dog who died that night, and information that she would have children even though she did not believe she could.

3628. John K STE 3/23/2014. STE 7161. I told God, ‘If you really exist, I need for you to help me right now. I’m at the end of my rope and without your help and your love, I can’t go on. If you really exist, then you need to show yourself right now. If you don’t, then your silence will be the answer.’ At that moment, as I lay in this cavernous old bedroom in the corner of the abbey, the room filled with a warm wind. Rays of light seemed to encompass me, and I felt that I was picked up and cradled in these big arms. I was engulfed in the most amazing sense of compassion and love I had ever felt. I had never felt anything like this before. I knew that I was being held in Christ’s embrace.
Dramatic communication from God while he was a novitiate in a Benedictine monastery and was contemplating suicide.

3627. Timothy A NDE 3/23/2014. NDE 7159. I was then five to six feet above my body, moving upwards, and looking down. I could see myself lying on the concrete floor. I could see much more than what my eyes normally could see. My scope of view and clarity were enhanced. I could see everything except what was behind me, above me technically.
NDE at age 5 due to electrocution, and also remarkable ADC briefly described.

3626. Madeleine NDE 3/23/2014. NDE 7154. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Manuel. At the time this was happening to my body, I saw myself standing at the same place, seeing how my body was on the floor. I didn’t have any feelings, physical pain, and any stressors, neither fear nor anguish. I lost perception of time. I don’t know how long I spent observing myself on the floor, trying to understand why I had fallen, smacked myself so hard, and not felt any pain.
NDE from teenage suicide attempt.

3625. Steve R NDE 8/18/2007. NDE 16070. I felt at peace. At this point, I was being drawn into a very bright, white tunnel. As I moved further up this tunnel, I could see two large brown, closed, arched gates, like the ones you would have in a church. On the left hand side, stood by the entrance, I saw a figure, dressed in a dark colored cowl, similar to a monk’s habit, but I could not see a face. Then I heard the immortal words, “Go back, it is not your time”. It was a woman’s voice that I heard and was very comforting in tone.
NDE from drowning as a child.

3624. Soizi W Probable NDE 3/16/2014. Probable NDE 7158. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I was in a corridor where there were many persons. Between them, I recognized the grandfather of my husband, who died some time before this. I was in a big space, resembling a tent for a forum. There were several stands and I was standing at exactly one of them, discussing with a Buddhist monk, wearing white. He said to me, ‘You shouldn’t come today. You will come back here when you will have the age of ??? Years. You did a lot of good things in your life, you will go back. But now make the most of your life.’ I don’t know any more if those are the exact words, but that’s the main idea of them!
Probable NDE from auto accident.

3623. Kathy VB NDE 3/16/2014. NDE 7157. There is no separation except the difference we create by ego. Under the water I was upright and there was no panic or fear. Arms outstretched, protected and loved. I was able to open my eyes under the water and see clearly. Beautiful colors, a brightness of white light and a knowing, all intertwined like fabric. A love, like the lap of the waves above me on the surface of the ocean, wrapped all around me and through me.
NDE due to drowning. Remarkable experience and rescue.

3622. Cali NDE 3/16/2014. NDE 7155. I was physically in the ambulance but do not remember looking down on my physical self in 360 degrees as I did during the OBE. Instead, I was in a place strangely devoid of detail but not a void. My mother was there; she had been deceased since I was in my mid-20s. We were seated, but I do not remember any furniture. It was light there, but not the bright tunnel people report seeing.
NDE due to insulin shock.

3621. Victorio NDE 3/10/2014. NDE 7150. From Argentina. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana. While I was on the stretcher, I observed a very white light at a distance, which I was approaching. I was floating in the air. When I reached the light, I entered it and my arms disappeared through it, but part of me was outside and did not cross that frontier. As my arms were entering, the people who were in the light came to get me. They were all my friends and family who had passed away, and I could see their complete bodies.
NDE from falling out of a bus.

3620. Romy NDE 3/9/2014. NDE 7153. From Australia I looked back at my childhood. I could enter pictures there. From each picture, moment or thought, there was always the possibility to access that light that separated between it and the next picture. I could also see all the thoughts I had all my life. Their ‘pictures’ were as strong as the pictures that depicted action or words. I was amazed to see that our thoughts are that strong, so real. It looked as though they were also threaded on a string of light. I realized that everything that happened to me and every single thought I had, created an imprint.
Exceptional NDE from a lady originally from Isr’l resulting from car accident in India. Remarkable and detailed comments on life review. Received information in experience that likely saved her life.

3619. Barbara W NDE 3/9/2014. NDE 7152. 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.

3618. Sally D NDE 3/9/2014. NDE 7151. From Canada It was calm and warm as I drifted up and watched myself lying so peacefully on the bench in the mall. There was 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.

3617. Gene B NDE 3/9/2014. NDE 7149. 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. The colors were all choreographed to awesome, ethereal music. I felt total peace, almost euphoric. I knew that there was nothing to fear, no condemnation of my life the way it had been lived. I experienced total forgiveness in regards to my life and actions. I was given the choice of ‘stepping over’, or returning to my present life. However, I was encouraged to return, because there was still more work that I should do.
NDE from a physician who is currently retired, but was practicing at the time of the NDE. NDE due to sudden respiratory failure.

3616. David M NDE 3/9/2014. NDE 7148. From Canada. It was at this point, that the light got brighter and it 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 outstretched. 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. 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.

3615. Witney NDE 3/9/2014. NDE 7147. 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.

3614. Marc-André B Possible NDE 3/6/2014. Possible NDE 7144. 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. I felt being pulled upward and I saw the light with 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.
Possible NDE from a child under one year old.

3613. Silvia C Possible NDE 3/4/2014. Possible NDE 5462. Original in Italian, translated to English by Fran. I was out of my body and I felt very well. I could see a light ‘surface’ in front of me! Nothing on earth had the same consistency. It was very nice and pleasant and I felt surrounded by so much love. I wanted to remain in the light ‘surface’ that I perceived as a Tunnel. While I perceived it, I moved further away from my bed and I went into the tunnel. But after a while, something threw me back into my little body and what I heard in my thoughts was ‘this is not your time’.
Possible NDE from a fever as a child.

3612. Fabio G NDE 8/6/2011. NDE 5463. From Italy. Original in Italian, translated to English by Fran. I could see the stars, the nebul’, 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. Then I became more relaxed, I felt serene, and I got emotional in front of such magnificence. I pictured myself with open arms in ecstasy, even if I didn’t have a body. After some time, from a specific part of the space, I ‘felt’ a presence, something, someone, I can’t explain it.
NDE from a diving accident.

3611. Haze NDE 3/2/2014. NDE 7145. Then there was whiteness, and then complete peace. I was with my brother and father who are both deceased. I don’t remember words from them, just a feeling of total peace and safety. I felt or heard my best friend, Deb, speak when she touched my hand. She said that I had to go back; it wasn’t my time. Without question, I rose and went with her.
NDE due to seizures while donating blood.

3610. Jane O Probable NDE 3/2/2014. Probable NDE 7140. I was above myself, nothing to fear because everything was perfect. Even fear was perfect and there was a nonjudgmental knowing that there was a reason for fear. When I was out of my body, I didn’t worry about anyone on earth. I knew that they have inside of each of them what I was feeling in that moment. It was peace, and that they were unconditionally loved by God. It was as if they were each being engulfed in God’s love, which was better than anything that I could possibly get close to providing for them. That their lives were going to happen perfectly, according to how they needed it to happen with God. It was all perfect.
Probable NDE following broken leg during skiing accident.

3609. Ellen F Probable NDE 3/2/2014. Probable NDE 7137. There was the strongest emotional and spiritual feeling of being oppressed in every possible way. It is almost unexplainable how much emotional pain I felt. It was almost as if every negative feeling I had ever felt in my life were being forced on me at once. Flashes of my past and terrible choices and mistakes I had made flew by me. I also saw faces of my family members, they were all crying. I knew I was going to hell, and it was a million times worse than I had ever imagined.
Drug experience vs. NDE from drugs at age 17. Hellish experience followed by substantial life changes.

3608. Marie M Possible NDE 3/2/2014. Possible NDE 7136. Later on that night, I remember myself in a dark place that was very peaceful. In that place, I felt so alive with so much clarity that I had never felt before. I remember I had many questions come to me and my spirit and I remember asking these questions without even moving my mouth. These questions were deep, deep questions about life that only, it seemed, my spirit was able to ask, and not my cardinal mind. I had no sense of time or space. I remember these questions springing up inside of me, and the answers coming back that I understood completely in a way like I never had before. I can’t describe in words the intensity, the depth, of how I understood the answers coming back to me. Then as fast as they came, they were gone.
OBE that was a dream vs. fever experience vs. possible NDE. Communication with God and understanding of three different types of communion with God.

3607. Graeme C NDE 3/2/2014. NDE 7135. From the UK. It was then that I sensed the sweet perfume of incense and found myself looking into a brightly lit, white-walled corridor. I remember feeling very calm and not at all afraid. I think the experience lasted a brief few seconds before my breathing started and I came around. The whole experience, whilst not at all unpleasant was, nevertheless, quite perturbing. As you will already have realized, I have no really positive thoughts about religion or the afterlife. However this experience has made me think again.
NDE due to exacerbation of asthma.

3606. Austin C Probable NDE 2/23/2014. Probable NDE 7134. From Scotland. I was then aware of traveling through a dark tunnel. I found myself on a road winding down to a beautiful rural place, which contained a large rustic house set in a valley with a forest behind it. There was a sparkling river and the meadows in front of it were golden and peaceful. There may have been a mill wheel at the far side of the house, through which a stream flowed. The forest behind, looked safe and inviting and I was curious to see it and remain there.
Anesthetic experience vs NDE at age 7-8 shared by minister 56 years after it occurred. The contributor is a minster.

3605. Brian C FDE 2/23/2014. FDE 7133. I sunk to the bottom and began to drown almost immediately, sucking water into my lungs. At first, I was feeling pure panic. But then, I felt myself out of my body. Once out of my body, I felt a peaceful calm, and loving reassurance. I felt the presence of love surround me and had no fear at all. It also felt familiar, like I had been through this so many times before and there was nothing to worry about.
Fear-death experience at age 5 due to nearly drowning. Shared 50 years later.

3604. Wanetta L Probable NDE 2/23/2014. Probable NDE 7132. I was confused, but not afraid. I remember thrashing my arms and legs and as I looked up, I saw two things. I saw sunlight, at least that is what I think it was, and I saw a lady’s arm reaching down towards me. It was a white arm encased in a shimmering sleeve.
Probable NDE due to drowning at age 5. Shared 61 years later.

3603. Justin M NDE 2/23/2014. NDE 7131. She showed me five different life paths. At that point, I was ready to go back to my body and continue my life. She told me when I went back I wouldn’t be able to remember what she told me and she was only able to tell me all that, so that I would return to my body. Before I went back, I noticed that a lot of people (or spirits/energies) had gathered around us, just standing around watching.
NDE due to suicide attempt and car crash.

3602. Beata M Probable NDE 2/23/2014. Probable NDE 7123. From New Zealand I felt I was in a dark area, like a void, but somehow, even though I could not see anything I knew there were limits to this area: borders? Walls? There were others there too. I had a sense of myself, floating, but not having control of the movement, others seemed to know how, and I could sense them. There was the sound of a bell, every now and then; it would toll singly, not regularly. I tried to work out what was happening, then a female voice said, ‘You just got here; don’t know how to move yet.’
Probable NDE during appendectomy surgery.

3601. Carlos K STE 2/23/2014. STE 7124. The whole of Heaven was loudly celebrating and rejoicing with me on my arrival! I was back!!! I could ‘hear’ heavenly bells, trumpets, angelic choirs, laughter and all kinds of happy, joyful sounds of infinite gladness, for which we have no name here on earth, because those things do not exist here. I felt the unspeakable, all encompassing, unconditional Love of God for me. It felt really ‘personal’ and because of its unconditional character is almost incomprehensible. To the point where I thought: ‘All this Love for me? Who am I? I am just a boy who grew up in a middle-lower class family, in a regular neighborhood, went to a regular school. I have no accomplishments. I’ve never done anything remarkably special. I’m just a regular guy, a normal human. What have I done to deserve this? Is ALL this LOVE really for me?’ The moment I finished that thought, I was instantly ‘swallowed up’ by this amazing Love. ‘I’ was completely GONE! There was nothing but Love. No me, no God: just eternal, incomprehensible, indescribable, total, complete, absolute LOVE.
Exceptionally profound STE. Among the most remarkable and detailed STEs ever shared with NDERF.

3600. Ron K NDE 2/23/2014. NDE 32286. My Mom was several thousand miles away and, I ran in spirit to her. She told me years later I was there as a blue light, about 5′ above floor, and she knew it was me. She realized immediately that I must have died. She said I followed her around her home. I recall following her. I could hear her words, she could get my meanings well. I said my goodbyes to her. My experience was leaving the planet. I was very aware I was in space. I headed to the brightest area, where it all flows from. Getting closer, a group came out quickly and as I past them they called me and said they had a message.
NDE at age 15 due to blood loss from criminal attack.

3599. Gavin C Probable NDE 2/17/2014. Probable NDE 7122. From New Zealand. Suddenly, I was startled by two large bangs and pictures of my two little girls flashed before me. I suddenly realized what was happening and it was the end, I went absolutely crazy kicking fighting and obviously came-to under water.
Probable NDE due to drowning. Shared just days after it occurred.

3598. Brenda S NDE 2/16/2014. NDE 7118. From Scotland. I was running in a beautiful euphoric lily field, a bright sunny day, long grass, a fence, a tree; I was wearing a white veil over my body. I could feel the beauty and love in me, surrounding me. I could also see myself through an eye shape, just watching and being myself at same time. I was beautiful and healthy again, unlike the state I was in on earth. I was laughing, unlike earth.
NDE due to criminal attack.

3597. Jim A NDEs 2/16/2014. NDEs 7117. On 2 occasions, I went to a strange place. The first time was very short. On the second occasion, I was looking through a multicolored ‘window’ into a beautiful ‘tropical’ garden. I don’t have words to describe it better. The window was a series of mosaics with beautiful lights of alternating soft peaceful colors.
NDE due to low blood pressure after massive blood loss.

3596. Lauren K NDE 2/9/2014. NDE 7116. I left my body and went into an aura of all white light! It was totally warm and Peaceful, pure Love emanating through me and around me. At that moment, my Grandfather, who had passed away earlier that year, appeared to me and we embraced. ‘My darling, you have a decision to make.’ I knew the decision was to stay or to come back. At that moment, I had an opportunity to view my life.
NDE due to trauma as a result of an accident while being towed behind a car in a snow saucer. Remarkable dialogue about the later need for a tracheotomy (and that she would be okay) if she chose to return to her body, or what her cause of death would be if she chose not to return to her body.

3595. Bailey J Probable NDE 2/9/2014. Probable NDE 7112. I suddenly felt all of the pain slip away, just a floating, calm, sense of awareness. My thoughts were no longer sluggish. There was a level of calmness and clarity that I had never experienced before. I felt so peaceful, so relieved. There was no fear at all. I remember thinking, ‘So this is what it feels like to die’. I felt like I had a choice. I could sink back into my body, or I could gently float away into the peace.
Probable NDE due to high fever associated with Scarlet Fever.

3594. Marshall L NDE 2/9/2014. NDE 7111. I was crossing the four lane street in my Honda civic then out of nowhere a truck hit me at 50 mph in a 40 mph zone, I was going 25 mph. I was dazed/blacked-out for several minutes. I saw only a glimpse of what seemed to be a city in the clouds. Then afterwards, I saw flashes of my life go by all in 2-3 minutes but it seemed a lot longer, in that current state of mind. When I came to, my sister was shaking me awake calling me. It was so peaceful: I want to go back.
NDE due to auto accident. Shared just a few days after its occurrence.

3593. Bob G Possible NDE 2/9/2014. Possible NDE 7110. Suddenly, there was this intensely bright white light, and a being who was also very bright, who had a little blue to distinguish ‘her’ from the light. I say her because it seemed to me, at the time, that it was a female presence. It was almost as if this ‘person’ was what I had known, from a bit of a Catholic background, to be the ‘Virgin Mary’. Not necessarily, but someone similar. It was telepathically related to me that I had a choice: I could come over to ‘her’, or I could return.
Possible NDE while recovering from fall.

3592. Catherine A NDE 2/9/2014. NDE 7109. I was walking under a wave, a HUGE wave, and I was not getting wet. There were colors of the rainbow that I have never seen. Inside this wave, I felt happy and I had no pain. I was so glad to be there. I did not know that I could feel this much joy! I saw an old woman up ahead of me. I could only see her back. She had curly grey hair and a slender body. There was also lots of people and no bodies! I just felt their presence all around me. I still feel their presence to this day. I could hear her telling me to ‘hurry up’; she had so much to tell me.
NDE at age 11 during experimental surgery to correct scoliosis.

3591. Rosemary L NDE 2/9/2014. NDE 7108. I had gone through a tunnel but the light at the end was not all that bright. I saw a lot of figures standing at the end of the tunnel. They seemed to be sepia-colored. They almost had the appearance of Monks. I felt great happiness and comfort and utter, complete love. I remember being so happy there and I did not want to leave. I was surrounded by the most profound feeling of gentle beauty and love, but something was telling me it wasn’t time for me to be there.
NDE due to myocardial infarction while asleep.

3590. Cathy T Probable NDE 2/9/2014. Probable NDE 7107. There was a bright light and a feeling of great peace and awe. I distinctly recall thinking, ‘Gee, I didn’t think you could breathe under water, but by golly, I sure am!’ I looked to my right and saw my mother’s legs and I somehow knew that was her, which gave me an even greater sense of peace and safety. It felt divine without really knowing what divine felt like. I never once felt any sense of panic or fear, just blissful peace and beauty: no struggle whatsoever.
Probable NDE due to drowning at age 5. Shared 58 years later.

3589. David A Probable NDE 6684 2/9/2014. Probable NDE 6684. Suddenly, I was walking through a grain field with vivid radiant light making the surroundings seem more alive. In the distance, I saw two twin buildings with a majestic symmetry. I felt someone next to me. I asked what the buildings were, and I was told that angels just built the building and sung there. I was walked towards the buildings. There was a portal that joined the two buildings, and as I walked forward I requested if I could enter, but was told ‘No.’ I had to go back and fight.
NDE from sepsis.

3588. Jarod NDE 2/3/2014. NDE 7103. From France. Original in French translated to English by Marguy. I literally felt myself leaving my body. I was within an inch of going into the other world, when suddenly I started to hear people on a bench some meters away. Maybe it was this that awakened me.
NDE from an accident.

3587. Petra J NDE 2/3/2013. NDE 7012. From Venezuela. Original in Spanish translated to English by Manuel. I saw myself afloat in an infinite vacuum, completely wreathed in a white bright light, but it was not blinding me. I looked down and to the sides, but there was nothing more than this light. I was not sad, or scared or anguished, nor did I have any pain. I was in absolute peace and wrapped in very pleasant warmth. I did not have any notion of time. I did not think about my family, either, nor in what was happening to me. I was not even conscious about myself. I just perceived I was very comfortable in that place. I also felt something attracted me, very softly from behind, I wanted to let go with that sensation of weightlessness and absolute peace.
NDE from e. coli infection.

3586. Paula E NDE 2/3/2014. NDE 7102. From France. Original in French translated to English by Marguy. At that moment I saw in front, a path leading upwards into the sky, I engaged on this path that seemed marvelous to me, two angels keeping on each side, both were golden, they were rather childlike, cherub style, and they opened a door to let me pass. A big gate opened in front of me. The angels were smiling and what I felt was wonderful, it was an emotion of utter joy, total success, also to be able to enter this magical place. A tree was in the middle, its branches spreading gracefully, he was made of silver. I was very moved to arrive at this place; it was no garden as there was a huge space behind this gate.
NDE from surgery complications.

3584. Tammy H NDE 2/2/2014. NDE 7105. Exceptional Experience. I did not feel scared or confused. I felt calm and curious about the activities below. I was too high up to see the people in enough detail to identify them. I felt as if my back was against a barrier. I knew the barrier was not visible to me; but, if I turned around and examined it, that I would move through it. I did not question this knowledge. Beings, loved ones or friends did not meet me. I did not see ‘the light’. The feeling of total calm and peace did engulf me. My focus moved from the people, and I found myself very curious about a row of pine trees along the right fence line and how it looked. I remember thinking: ‘So, that is what they look like from up here!’
NDE due to head injury as a result of a fall from a horse at age 13.

3583. Nigel O NDEs 7/18/2020 & 1/31/2014. NDEs 9032/7098. From the UK. At an undetermined point, within the ‘tunnel’, I stopped when a voice that was neither male or female, sounded soft and kind said (or it sounded inside my head): ‘Hello Nigel don’t be afraid you have had an accident, it is not your time, you have to go back’ I said I did not want to, as it hurt too much and I wanted to stay here.
Two NDEs. One NDE happened 5 years ago due to multiple strokes. The other NDE occured at age 9.

3582. Betty N Probable NDE 2/2/2014. Probable NDE 7096. From Canada While spinning in that tunnel I heard a voice saying ‘don’t give up, don’t give up’ and soon enough I started seeing a blinding light. Even though I thought the light could kill my eyes, I knew I had to keep watching it, to get me out of there. The fly through the tunnel felt incredibly long, but after hearing the voice and seeing the light, soon I started hearing other voices around, and that dominant voice saying ‘you’re almost there.’
Anesthesia experience. Interesting to note some similarities and differences with typical NDEs.

3581. Brandon C NDE 2/2/2014. NDE 7095. I felt love, and some type of ‘non-caring’. I am not sure if it was my husband’s presence there, but something wrapped its love around me. I remember acknowledging myself as being ‘alive’, but not remembering the suicide, or anything for that matter. However, regardless of all of the pills and booze I consumed, I was no longer drunk. Everything was quite focused, regardless of the black that surrounded me. I had a feeling I had been here before as well. I have lost all desire to take my life.
NDE due to suicide attempt.

3580. SJ NDE 2/2/2014. NDE 7094. Then, the throne one had the ‘ministers’ roll some colored balls from one side of the room to the other. They were just like colored billiard-type balls. The balls made a sound when they rolled across the floor, which echoed on the walls, even though I couldn’t see the walls. That and footsteps were the only sounds during the whole thing. I was supposed to understand the balls as ‘atoms’. When I got that, they moved on to the next point quickly, which was, ‘that’s all your world is.’
Drug experience versus NDE with interesting insights.

3579. Julia M NDE 1/30/2014. NDE 7093. From France. Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I contemplate the softness of this light and hear a wonderful music that makes me perfectly happy, a kind of music that is so beautiful that it cannot exist on earth. Then at my left side, coming out from the core of the light, I first see human forms approaching slowly: men, women, children, young and old. They look at me with great kindness, as if they had a lot of love for me, and between themselves. They come to welcome me sympathetically so that I should join their group: they are smiling, calm, all wearing white. I look at them, as I want to see if I know them; in fact I am looking for my deceased father, my sister, and my grand-mother.
NDE from surgery complications.

3578. Irma NDE 1/20/2014. NDE 7062. From Mexico. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana. Suddenly, I am feeling an intense pleasure, that I am happy with my parents and my children. This pleasure is so beautiful, but a strong voice bothers me saying ‘Irma, I am here’. Oh no! It takes me out of my pleasure and I don’t like it.
NDE from going unconscious.

3577. Lana L Possible NDE 1/28/2014. Possible NDE 7038. From Uruguay. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana. During this time, I felt very loved, comprehended and supported. I didn’t see a thing; everything was just perception and feelings. Words are a very limited source for describing. The type of love perceived was infinite, unconditional, intimate, of a paternal and maternal nature, but multiplied infinitely. That love knew me completely from the inside; it was very patient, with no limits: tender, which felt as if I was being held in cotton balls.
Possible NDE vs. an anesthesia experience.

3576. Neerie NDE 1/27/2014. NDE 7092. There was a guy there, around my age, with brown hair, and we were swinging. I remember it as being the best feeling in the world. Just total bliss! Anyway, I started to walk down a dark tunnel, but it wasn’t scary, it, too, was warm and cozy. I heard my mom calling my name. The last thing I saw was when I turned around to look at the beginning of the tunnel, from where the light from the park was coming.
NDE at age 12 due to passing out and unconsciousness.

3575. Scot W Probable NDE 1/27/2014. Probable NDE 7090. As I began leaving my body, I could see myself from above. I looked like a crucifixion lying there, and then things, all things, time, space, the things man had thrown into space; all became dust to the wind I rode upon now. I was beyond the trinkets man had thrown into space and I was moving! It was too fast, my time was cut short, and emotions I had thought were bound only to flesh, became punishment for the trials I had failed.
Remarkably transcendent Probable NDE due to complications of necrotizing fasciitis (‘flesh eating bacteria’).

3574. Sara J NDE 1/27/2014. NDE 7089. From Canada. I experienced a sparkly light and a tunnel with light at the end. There was an unbelievable feeling of peace and of ‘coming home’. There was a voice speaking. I could not tell if it was my own mind or another entity, but instinctively felt that I should not try to intellectualize it, but just experience it. At one point, my whole life history flashed before my eyes and I thought of my parents.
NDE due to allergic reaction from tropical insect sting.

3573. Yvette P Possible NDE 1/27/2014. Possible NDE 7088. I’m in a park. Green grass was everywhere. It was very pretty and very clean. I see a black cat running up to me. It’s my Amigo, my black cat who had passed away 6 months earlier. He runs towards me and leaps into my arms. He feels exactly the same. He was always a solid cat from his years on the streets. I hold him tight, I am so happy to see him. Joy fills me!! I cry a little bit. I hold him, hugging him, kissing him. He’s rubbing his cheek on my face. I am so happy to see him. He is so happy to see me. This happiness is as if I’ve never felt before. I could feel his love and adoration. I have never felt happiness like this before in my life. It was peaceful, comforting, and so fulfilling.
Possible NDE associated with heart valve surgery.

3572. Jill W NDE 1/27/2014. NDE 7086. About halfway through the tunnel, a review of my life’s events occurred. It was as if someone was flipping through a book: all sorts of life events, big and small, good and bad. Then I heard a voice say ‘Everything’s all right.’ I reached the end of the tunnel and entered a field of light.
NDE due to disseminated intravascular coagulation and hemorrhage.

3571. Anne R FDE 1/27/2014. FDE 7085. Suddenly, I felt different. It was surreal. It was as if I’m at peace. I can see the water bubbling and I saw many white lights around
