After the NDE:
Was the experience difficult to express in words? Yes
Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience? Yes I was completely awoken after my experience. I created like never before. I could see the energy in everything and finally understand the answers to the question about life and death that I had be searching for all of my life and that is only scratching the surface. I awoke for the first time into the ancient history of my soul's evolution, embodied in the physical form in this beautiful yet turbulent time.
Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you? The entire thing transformed my life forever. I will continue to shape and influence my life until the day when I have finished with this body.
Have you ever shared this experience with others? Yes Yeah, it took a few months before I could start to allow my conscious mind to expand enough to house the wisdom that had be imparted to me. I confided everything to a special woman whom I love and with my family and closest friends. For most people my story and the information that was imparted to me was too much for people to cope with. Nineteen years down the track, they now talk about it openly. I employed the pin-prick methods as opposed to the sledge-hammer method. When the sage walks away from the transformative situation, the people say 'Yeah, we did it ourselves.' The sage turns and smiles. For they know that their souls were the catalysts.
Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience? Yes Only through traditional outlets.
What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened? Experience was definitely real. I had to simply expand my soul, consciousness, and trust my intuition. I could distinguish as to what was fantasy and what was reality/ I had to educate myself for months and months in the greatest thinkers in human history in order to shape the new temple of my belief system, that took a great deal of research and intense study.
What do you believe about the reality of your experience now? Experience was definitely real. I am so glad that I was awoken because I always preferred the idea of knowing, rather than not knowing. Alas great wisdom comes at a price. My price was what most people have as a relatively care free youth in my country.
At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience? Yes
Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? I haven't even started.
