Experience Description


I had been hemorrhaging for approximately twelve hours by this time. As I previously noted (in a question above), the nurse started to give me a shot. For some reason, she had to do this shot very slowly. When she was about halfway done, I started to feel 'light'. Then I heard her say, from far away, 'What's your name? Tell me your name'. I began to say it, and then suddenly, I felt myself leave my body. It was as if I was being sucked by a vacuum from the top of my head. Then, I was in a dark tunnel, and SPEEDING upwards towards a light. When I got very close to the light, I became conscious of a 'being' in the light, welcoming me as if I had been waited for, for a long, long time - gladly, and with love. On my right were three 'beings'. We communicated, without speaking. I cannot remember much of this, except I was asked (apparently rhetorically) if I wanted to stay. I answered yes, because I really felt I had come home, finally. But they communicated that my time here was not yet over, that I had more to do.


I was sent back, backwards, through the tunnel, and I got heavier as I went, and the bells became bongs instead of tinkling.


When I returned, I was surrounded by eight nurses and doctors, I had been put on 'shock blocks', and they were trying to get a blood line in - my veins had all but collapsed due to lack of blood pressure. I tried to talk about it to my family, but they really didn't want to hear about it. My children are interested, but not my parents or my siblings. I would get quite emotional if I talked about it.


It wasn't until about ten years later that I started reading about it, and found out that others, MANY others, had experienced the same thing. I was amazed, delighted, and comforted. I had felt like a 'freak' for a long time. I knew my experience was real, have always known it, and yet, it felt so good to not be alone.


I know something else. There ARE reasons and patterns to life. We're all here for special reasons, even if just to raise our or someone else's consciousness. Even just to perform that one special act, or say that one special thing.


Thank you for giving me this forum.

Thank you for giving me this forum.

Background Information:

Gender: Female

Date NDE Occurred: May 29, 1967

NDE Elements:

At the time of your experience, was there an associated life-threatening event? Yes Childbirth Actually, 10 days after childbirth, due to infection and hemorrhage Clinical death hemorrhage 10 days after childbirth-I was told they 'lost me' for about 4 0r 5 minutes.I had apparently gone into shock, which is life threatening.

How do you consider the content of your experience? Positive

The experience included: Out of body experience

Did you feel separated from your body? Yes I did not see my etheric form.

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness? Even though the medical community would probably say I has basically shut down physically, I would say this was the most alert experience of my entire life.

Did time seem to speed up or slow down? Everything seemed to be happening at once; or time stopped or lost all meaning As I said, the 'speeding up and slowing down' to me seem to be time related.

Did your hearing differ in any way from normal? Bells when I was going towards the light and bongs (as if everything was slowing down) when I was coming back.

Did you pass into or through a tunnel? Yes See main narrative.

Did you encounter or become aware of any deceased (or alive) beings? Yes I did know them. They were familiar to me.

The experience included: Darkness

The experience included: Light

Did you see an unearthly light? Yes

Did you seem to enter some other, unearthly world? A clearly mystical or unearthly realm See main narrative.

The experience included: Special Knowledge

Did you suddenly seem to understand everything? Everything about the universe I'm not sure if the knowledge I received was a repeat of the knowledge I already had or not. I have always been drawn to this type of knowledge. I do know that it was after this experience that I started studying astrology and finding that I do have a 'gift' for it. I think that this experience opened up some channels that made me more psychic or more aware of being psychic.

Did scenes from your past come back to you? My past flashed before me, out of my control

Did scenes from the future come to you? No

The experience included: Boundary

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? Yes I couldn't go past the light. The three figures on my right communicated in some way, that I had to go back.

Did you come to a border or point of no return? I came to a barrier that I was not permitted to cross; or was sent back against my will See main narrative.

God, Spiritual and Religion:

What is your religion now? Liberal

Did you have a change in your values and beliefs because of your experience? Yes Boy. This questionnaire is getting very long. Of course, you cannot go through this and not be changed. I have no fear of death, for others or me. In fact, I really have a hard time grieving for those who leave. My father died in 1998 from ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). My husband died in 1994 from cancer. All I can think of them, or others close to me, is 'Thank God, they're free', running, moving around with no restrictions, no pain, doing what they want, and waiting for the day when we'll all be together again. I talk to them a lot, and talk to my guides and angels too, as I KNOW we all have them.

The experience included: Presence of unearthly beings

After the NDE:

Was the experience difficult to express in words? Yes To try to explain to anyone in MY particular circle the feeling of love, acceptance and LOVE that came from the Light. The Light that was so bright, that I could still look at directly. The bells and tinkling on the way towards the Light and the feeling of lightness, and the heaviness and bonging of the sounds when I had to come back. The feeling (I don't think I've ever described to anyone) that it was like coming home and being welcomed by a parent whose favorite child I was.

Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience? Yes I believe this experience opened channels previously closed.

Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you? Going there. Coming back.

Have you ever shared this experience with others? Yes Most of them really don't believe, I don't think. But, they are kind. They believe that I believe it.

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience? No There is nothing that COULD! Until the day I die.

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? No. I'm getting tired.
