Experience Description

When I was three years old I fell out of an open window from the fourth floor.

I remember the fall; remember lying on my back on the concrete tiles, looking up at the open window above and then my mother and aunt rushing towards me screaming loudly with their outstretched arms. Then a 'gap'. Next I found 'myself zooming out', seeing the backs of my mother, aunt and many people I did not know leaning over a little 'empty shell'. There was a square white 'box' with two lamps shining on this (must have been an ambulance, but I had never seen one). The 'scene' disappeared as I was zooming out and up, the rooftops and chimneys went out of sight, and the next 'thing' I remember (vividly!) is that I was between thousands of stars and spiraling galaxies they were All Around 'me' and I was part of the Whole. (I did not know back then, what a galaxy was, let alone a spiraling one.) I felt One and All Consciousness and extremely happy. The night sky around me was the most beautiful Royal Blue and I was 'clad' in a 'floating garment' with a long, pointed hat on my 'head', which was pure light. When I moved my 'hands', stars would spring from them and join the rest on the firmament.

As I was too young to know what a 'magician' would look like I had no idea - but how I loved it all! When I grew older, I could read about 'magicians' and wondered. The 'Hubble Telescope' and many other sources filled me in on the spiraling galaxies later on in life: Home Again. Have to add that when I found myself strapped tightly into a narrow little bed in hospital and the nurses/doctors treated me as a little kid (they can be forgiven :-) ) that I thought: If you just knew how old I really am. And 'waking up' was much less thrilling than my NDE experience, trust that. For some reason I felt that I should not tell anyone about my 'extraterrestrial experience', this including my beloved mother, because she might be worried. I told her many years later when I was a teenager, this when she told me that I had been declared stone dead by the doctors - and that when I came to, they had told her that I would be brainless. Well, it was not so, and she blamed them for having been so cruel.

That is when I found it fair to tell her of my beautiful experience. Fair on her - and fair on the doctors. She was utmost surprised; this is put mildly, and kept asking me for more. How she deserved it, poor mum. But time had to be ripe, for both of us, and we decided to keep it between us. As the decennia went by, many more people turned out to have had amazing experiences when 'dead', and I think it is of utmost importance for so many people being so scared of death to know, that 'this dimension' is NOT 'all there is'.

That we are multi-dimensional beings. If that was not so - 'who' was the 'being' flying between the galaxies and 'who' was the three year old who 'woke up'?

If anything, I 'woke down'. :-)

Concerning our Earthly lives other than Religion:

During your experience, did you gain special knowledge or information about your purpose? Yes When I 'came back/woke up' in hospital I Surely Knew that there was Much More 'to it' than what people around me seemed to know. I certainly Knew that I was OLD -older than Anyone I could think of or knew. I had many 'reasons' to not even Try to explain to Anybody, ooops... I was 'only' three years after all - for them to see, anyway.

Have your relationships changed specifically because of your experience? Uncertain I do not know What and Who my relationships the rest of my life would have been Without my experience? - I was so young after all.

After the NDE:

Was the experience difficult to express in words? Yes Too beautiful or words - literally Heavenly.

Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience? Yes People tell me that they feel 'healed' by my presence, my hands/body sort of stream out healing energies that have healed myself and others many times. FYI: I do Not call myself a healer - it just 'happens' naturally. And people tell me spontaneously that they feel good - I don't ask. Do not want to infringe on others, do not consider that 'my right'. I also have an unusually strong 'gut-feeling'. It 'tells me' precisely what is up and what I should do. Always. I did Not always Listen to it when I was younger - I do Now. Because Experience taught me that 'gut' was Right.

Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you? Everything was of Great significance, absolutely. The older I get the more I Know that.

Have you ever shared this experience with others? Yes It took many years before I mentioned it to my mother, and I only bring it up if somebody is stricken with grief after one of their loved ones has 'died'. And IF! I 'feel' that they can handle it - that death does Not exist, that it is crossing dimensions - From caterpillar to Butterfly!

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience? No

What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened? Experience was definitely real All I can answer is that it is the Most REAL experience I have Ever had. A Clarity and Consciousness that cannot be described in words.

What do you believe about the reality of your experience now? Experience was definitely real I would not have missed it for a zillion! I had a 'glimpse behind the curtain' that changed my life. As young as I was I Knew that there was More, Much More to 'life'. Thus, I did not buy into the 'death scare' that obviously haunts so many people. It also left me with a Deep Compassion for humanity - if 'they' but Knew that All is ONE.

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience? Yes I have meditated quite often and felt quite a Lot of the Bliss of my experience, luckily. The meditation experiences did not reproduce That specific NDE experience though, but there certainly were some Beautiful Peaks.

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? Yes, I wish that Everybody Knew that there is a Wonderful Source of GOOD, call it God or whatever/whoever - I have no name, but I Know that 'IT' IS. It is Good and it is Strong. All is Well. This 'realm' is an ' illusion' - a learning process. Not always easy, but we learn a lot that we can only learn here. Otherwise I would not have 'come back'- would have been waste of 'Spirit-time'.

Are there any other questions that we could ask to help you communicate your experience? I think that you have asked all I can answer for now. If there is more you think that I could add, please let me know. Thanks!!! Bless and Peace, Hanne.
