Madhavi NDE-Like 864


Experience Description


This was around March in 1987. My sister and I were chatting at the doorsteps. My sister was tickling me from behind, I meant to hit her with my elbow, but I hit on the edge of the wooden platform of the door. What I experienced was that I was a tiny object of myself traveling with very high speed in dark space with a light where I could see the hollow dark space that I was traveling in. I heard the vibration sound of the air when I traveled in the hollow space. I was in this state for about ten to fifteen minutes.


But after the fifteen minutes, I heard my mother and sister trying to wake me up by spraying water on my face, what they told me was, my body was falling down from the sitting position on the steps. Initially, my sister thought I was pretending as if I were falling down with pain. Whatever my sister and my mother were trying to do and talk to me, I could not hear anything.


But after that event, I never paid attention to what has happened to me until yesterday. I was with a group of about fifteen people discussing the Upanishad. One of the main persons, who was giving a lecture on the Upanishad, said we are only a material with some physical form. In order to reach God, we should see ourselves as out of the physical form. As I was hearing this talk, I remembered my experience. I thought I will share my experience with my husband, so I went home and discussed it with him. I never told him during my eleven years of marriage with him, because I was so busy with my studies, my children and my job, I never thought of paying attention to the death experience that I had almost about seventeen years back.


My husband and me discussed it for an hour, and I was telling him that some of the gurus have a soul that departs from their body. So what I was thinking at the time when these books were written there was no scientific knowledge of the human body. From the recent studies of what is needed to build a human body, proteins and all other minerals etc. are required. They found it very hard to build proteins; even using thousands of computers they found it is impossible to generate those proteins.


So with this little bit of scientific knowledge that I gained, I am analyzing my death experience as being, that we have some type of particles (that is what is called soul) that operate our brain functionality which is traveling in our body. Once we reach the death state, those particles (soul) are the ones, which come out of our body and start traveling again in the space, until it again comes into some body form. So I think there is life after death.
