I talked to the doctor and said I was suspicious that I also had a cyst in my left tonsil. I thought it was growing into the throat because I felt it for a while. My tonsils became infected and hard. They would swell up, cause bad breath, and I always had a fever. This problem got worse in the last years and the doctors took at least two years to do the surgery. The doctor said I shouldn’t worry because they would fix the situation and clean all the mess. As I understand it, my tonsils reached the point I call rotten. Before the surgery, I was on the gurney. They gave me medicine and I ready to go to the surgery room. All went well in the surgery room. I was a little anxious, but in a good mood. I talked to the anesthetist as he put the mask on me. I lost consciousness. In that phase, the doctor wasn't beside me, only the nurses and the anesthetist were there. The next thing I remember is standing beside the surgery table a few meters away, watching a body lying on a table. It was like a dream; I could not discern the details. I found myself there, during the surgery, looking at that scene and escorted by beings that looked like white figures arranged in a U-shape. They were with me a few meters away around the table. One of them near my right side was tall; I only reached his shoulder. He wore a white garb and I could see a pocket, like the ones in a shirt. I was amazed with what was happening. 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. In the midst of it, I felt the being next to me starting to move his arms very quickly, and at the same time, the person who was working on the head of that body moved his arms with similar movements. Time passed and I was intensely feeling the love that was radiated by those beings, which filled the room completely. They were in a U-shape, like an energy-block, where I saw waves similar to those one sees above the sand on the beach. When it is very hot, these waves started at the body’s feet and moved towards the head. Meanwhile, I understand the being next to me was in a kind of fight with the person who was working on the body. I felt him annoyed, because he was, with difficulty, in command of that person’s actions. In that persistence I saw smoke, like arms coming out of the being’s arms, over the table and they enveloped the person who was working on the body. Time passed. The love inside the room was so intense and I felt a peace and a well-being like I have never felt before, as if I was absolutely sure that everything was going to be okay. We were all together, taking care of that body. What seemed like a couple of hours later, after such insistence of the being who was working with the surgeon, I saw a smoke-like figure, with his size over the table and it enveloped the surgeon. I woke up in the recovery room, feeling that happiness and in a good mood. I told the nurses about the experience and they said I had a beautiful dream. When the anesthetist came, I tried to tell him but he joked and said, ‘Were you watching? You should have taken the opportunity to ask them the lottery numbers.’ Later the surgeon came in and I tried to tell her too, but she asked, ‘Did you see the surgery?’ and I replied, "Yes." Three days after, I was still in the recovery room. I scratched my right leg on the shin, next to an old nodule that was an ingrown hair and it started to bleed. The next day, I was looking at it; it formed five or six little crusts in the form of a coin about 20 cents of euro. I thought: maybe they touched here with something during surgery. I didn’t even think about it, because if it was so, it would have appeared right after the surgery. A month later, there began to appear small glands about the size of rice grains, around the tonsils, I was scared and went to the doctor to learn the biopsy result and it was negative. During the next few months the tonsils grew, they are small and they are doing their job. In several appointments with my doctor, she told me she never had seen a reaction like that. My curiosity about the subject was great. Two months ago, I finally succeeded in telling my doctor what had happened to me and she heard everything from the beginning until the end and when I told her about the person's distress who worked on the body and how the being was interacting with that person, she said, ‘It’s giving me the creeps.’ When I told her about the mark that formed a few days later in the crusts, she said, ‘It was a sign they left.’ She began to tell me about a case, that she and some other doctors were working on, of a 12 years old girl who didn't listen to anything at all. She didn't learn anything at her school, and she was considered mentally disabled. Meanwhile, the girl started to get better with the treatments they were doing. They became suspicious: she was listening and tested her. They were astounded, because the tests showed she was listening perfectly and meanwhile, the girl was normal. During several times with my doctor, I heard her talk about the love of God. Nowadays, I believe in God’s love. I’m not afraid of dying. In conclusion I am aware that we the human beings are the most developed beings reached by genesis, at least on our planet. In our dimension, and if we have an adequate interaction, which implicates several attitudes and ways of living with that energy, we can have a full life.
Date NDE Occurred: 31-01-2014
At the time of your experience, was there an associated life-threatening event? Yes Surgery-related. While under general anesthesia. Other: Surgery on the tonsils.
From what I gather, it was when the medical surgeon began cut into the left tonsil area to get them out by the roots. They gave me more anesthesia, and the 20 minutes scheduled for the surgery became more than 2 hours. Another curious thing is that what I heard was far away and I couldn't understand what was being said. Later, I realized they were students who were there watching the surgery because of what the nurses told me. I heard those sounds, so I know it wasn't a dream.

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience? Yes I fell 12 years ago, and suffered a head injury. While I was lying on the ground I felt like I was moving through cosmos, where I realized the existence of supreme energy, and it was like being inside ‘God’s files’ where I could realize that in there is everything that has happened, is happening and will happen and the intelligence of this energy.
Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? I would like that what happened to my tonsils could be analyzed, and how it explains what happened. Of course, that could contribute to the studies that are being made to find out what is existence and if death exists or not. Because for me, and for anyone on this planet, is the most important thing you should know: it would change everything. If we found out who God is, the actual mechanisms, the interaction between human beings, I believe, we could live fully. The feeling I had is that existence is always the self, is the self always, the self is what is, and that self was outside my body as happens now with my ‘self’. It was as if the existence was infinite, not having either a before or an after. There is something for sure, that connects us universally.
Love is something unforgettable and I can remember it always just as clearly.
I didn’t believe nor do I believe now in spirits, so I get confused, I would like to know who those beings were.
Are there any other questions that we could ask to help you communicate your experience? The questionnaire is very good.
