4028.  Amber I NDE 10/4/2015.  NDE 7791.    I was outside of my body and looking at my body from above. I remember trying hard to get my body to cooperate without success. My dad was speaking to Marty and saying that I was very ashen. I was watching and listening to his remarks from the corner of the wall and ceiling. I could see the pain on his face. I could feel all fear, confusion and frustration that was residing within him. He was fearful at the thought of loosing me. I wanted to reassure him that I was fine. My physical body was fine. I felt no pain and had no fear. I was not physically suffering and wanted him to know this. I wanted to relieve his pain and reassure him.  
NDE due to auto accident at age 16.

4027.   Kyal L Probable NDE  9/29/2015.  Probable NDE 7787.  From Australia  I was outside the world and all its troubles but I was also still lying in there on the bed. I saw the tree of life and it's essence was pouring into the world. Instead of being claimed and floating 'home,' I was dangled above a pit of nothingness and void.  I was shown what is worse than depression, where it was worse than hell, and because I would not exist anymore, my soul would be destroyed.  It was the single most frightening thing I have ever experienced because at least in hell your soul would still exist.  This pit of black nothingness would completely destroy my consciousness and I would forget my entirety, my everything. I would cease to exist even in spirit. I remember crying out, 'No! I still love, I still love!' even though I hated everything and everyone. I still had the capacity to love things.  
Frightening Probable NDE that happened about a year ago due to electrocution.  This is hard to tell if it is actually electrocution or if it is a spiritually transformative event brought on from depression.  He still suffers from severe depression, so professional help and time could help him better integrate his experience.

4026.  Becca S Probable NDE  9/25/2015.  Probable NDE 23057.    I was one of the first open-heart surgery cases. I remember rising out of my bed and seeing myself lying there. There was no noise and no sense of time. I didn't understanding why I was above myself and seeing myself lying there. I felt like I was in limbo. I also felt like this was such a very peaceful existence that I didn't want to go back. I remember an impression, not a voice, that communicated, 'There is something you have to do yet.' I was being gently, but firmly, pushed back. I remember almost everything exactly as it happened 48 years ago.  
Probable NDE associated with open heart surgery at age 15.  Shared 48 years after experience.

4025.  Paul K FDE  9/25/2015.  FDE 7786.  From the UK.  While in the midst of what seemed like an eternity of noise and pain, it was actually around 10 seconds. I felt an overwhelming calm and knowledge of what was going to happen. Initially I thought that was not too bad. Then I heard noises and felt impact and pain. My brain wanted it to end, which it did soon after. The strangest of feelings was knowing that I was not going to die and that I would get up. Blackness surrounded me, but a guidance of wellbeing was apparent. I felt some one was there to guide me through this experience.  
Fear-death experience with motorcycle crash.  Remarkably, shared five days after experience occurred.

4024.  Thomas M NDE  9/24/2015.  NDE 7785.  From Mexico  I was floating above my body, my first reaction was to tell my self to move but my body refused the order. I don't know how long it took but I finally realized that I was dead. With this realization came a feeling of extreme distress, kempt worrying and wondering what to do about next.  At this time a voice came to me from somewhere and it told me to stop worrying as all my troubles had staid behind with my body. After this I felt a sense of wellbeing that I never felt before or since, it felt like I had been caring the weight of the world on my shoulders and someone had liberated me of this burden.  After this I went through the ceiling and entered some type of tunnel where I traveled at extreme speed.  All I have related to this time felt completely real, but what happened next felt like a dream. In this dream my sister and grandmother came to me and told me that it was not yet my time, with this dream I awoke, apparently I had been taken to a nearby clinic where I had been resuscitated.  
NDE due to criminal attack.

4023.  Joseph C NDE 9/20/2015.  NDE 7780.    Then they handed me over to Jesus. When I was in heaven, or some may term it something else, I saw angels and God. God communicated directly and through an Angel. I saw biblical people I had not learned of yet. At another point closer to the beginning I think, I was in a court setting for my life review. I was shown what happened to me, my life, my sins, my love, and forgiveness of others by me. I cried for my sins, my shame, and my repentance. I was very shameful, mortified and sorry. At one point, I saw where my physical body was being healed.  
NDE due to apparent post-operative complications at age 8.

4022.  William L NDE  9/20/2015.  NDE 7779.    When I reach the cove, there are several shapes coming to me. I realize the closest shape as my grandfather who starts laughing and telling me that, 'All is well.' The others people don't allow me to see their faces. I asked who they are and why I can't see them. All my grandfather said was that they loved me and wanted me to know that. Being adopted, I think they may be biologically associated to me, but I don't know for sure. Soon, my grandfather said it was time to go. I gave no thought about the physical place I just was in. Earth never crossed my mind. I was home and wanted to stay.  
NDE due to being hit in chest.

4021.  Yann D Possible NDE  9/20/2015.  Anesthesia 7777.  From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.  Without transition I found myself instantly in outer space. This space was of an ebony blackness without the slightly bluish tone of our night sky. Nevertheless, this immensity wasn't opaque, nor was it dark. The blackness had an intrinsic quality of light that allowed one to grasp its infinite extent. A multitude of stars filled this space. Their number was quite superior to the stars that one can see at night. They were very large, but distant, and having variable sizes. Their luminosity was a lively white, of a brightness that could be compared to a mix of chromium and diamond.  
Possible NDE from anesthesia prior to surgery. 

4020.  Beh E Probable NDE  9/15/2015.  Probable NDE 7687.   Non-Western. From Iran. Original in Persian. Translated to English by Angel.   I was floating, something like floating on water. As a result of sea waves, I moved accidentally toward up, down, left, or right. I had a tendency to move upward but it was really hard. On top, there was a large rectangle which was divided into two parts from the middle. It was exactly like a window without any glass, which you could pass through it and enter to the other side. In the right half part, all things were in red color but I couldn't look and see what was in it because it seemed like something stopped me from doing that. However, what was in the left half of the rectangle was unexpected and beyond my imagination. It was a blue sky color with land covered with flattened grass, a Christian cemetery, and graves with crosses. It was obvious that it belonged to Christians. There shouldn’t have been any graves in that world.  
Probable NDE with unexpected and atypical imagery. 

4019.  Cristine H Experience  9/14/2015.  SOBE 23053.    I took notice of the flowers, of how they were alive and they were immersed in a love that was pure. To this day I can cry thinking of it. The garden’s colors were also alive with hues that made every other colors at ‘home’ dull. The flowers moved as if a gentle wind always was present. It was sunny but the sun never hurt my eyes. The temperature was perfect and I felt a sense of wellbeing as I never have. The sun lit up the petals and wings, making them transparent and I would fly in to enjoy the intricate designs (like I did inside the kaleidoscope)  
Among the most remarkable SOBEs ever shared with OBERF. Sudden visit to a beautiful realm with remarkable descriptions of her experience there.

4018.  Phoebe O Experience  9/9/2015.  STE 23052.    This great opening came right after several days of sensing deeply that everything I encountered— furniture, hair, paper, clothes, music, food, soap, bodies, minds, thoughts, reactions, plans, cities, cars, trees, clouds, and more—had an unspeakably complex history that was inseparable from the history of the whole universe and everything else in it. Everything simple looked magnificent in still observation… I saw that there was a vast life that was the Source of everything that was and ever will be. I was not seeing with my eyes, but with the core of my being. I saw our universe, all physical space, all other universes, and everything that changes as one tiny dark finite speck surrounded by an infinite sea of life and light. I saw even more clearly life’s nature of pure love, bliss, creativity, and wisdom. This sea of pure life is formless and spacious, and yet it is fully conscious and intelligent. It is the only true experiencer, the only true “I.” The Source is present everywhere and in every moment whether we are aware of it or not. As this great being showed Him/Herself to me, I could see that the pure divine life that is Him/Her is the same life that is the essence of every being through all space and time. The formless gives birth to all forms. Every taste, opinion, personality, and experience grows out of pure divine life. Every set of what we humans perceive as opposites or differences is actually one.  
Among the most profound STEs ever shared with us. Astounding spiritual insights. A quite long account, but a must read!

4017.  Raina M Possible NDE  9/12/2015.  Possible NDE 16084.  From Croatia. For mature audiences only!  I drove thru my mind, I woke up in the sky, There I saw the shining stars, And the pictures of the faces who died .
Possible NDE from repressed memories as a child.  Lyrics written in a song.

4016.  Alessandra P NDE  9/9/2015.  NDE 7768.  From Italy.  Original in Italian.  I lost consciousness and I saw myself from above, about two meters away, collapsed and with the syringe into my arm, and my friend trying to revive me. Then I found myself in a dark place, a tunnel with a fearful look. At its bottom, far away, I could see a light and I wished I could reach it, but it was as if I were chained to something: at my feet I had something like huge metal shoes, very heavy, that prevented me from moving.
NDE from drug overdose.

4015.  Laura C NDE  9/9/2015.  NDE 7775.    I had an MRI to look for problems with my spinal cord.  For this test, a very small amount of MRI contrast is injected into the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) space. I was given an incorrect dose (way more than I should have gotten).  This caused me to start vomiting and to be unable to talk, walk, or move. I was unconscious much of the time until several hours later a drain was put in that drained the contrast out.  During this unconscious time, I started floating around in darkness.  In the darkness, I could see 2 lights.  They were both shaped the same and one was under the other.  They looked like arcs of light, the left side being more rounded and the right side more pointed. They weren't labeled and had nothing visible to distinguish them.  I floated over to the top beam of light.  It seemed to represent positive things like love, kindness, gratitude and warmth.  In my mind I labeled it 'the positive'.  I then floated down to the lower beam of light.  It seemed to represent negative things like greed, hate, terror, dishonesty, etc.  I labeled it 'the negative'.  
NDE due to overdose of MRI contrast injected into cerebrospinal fluid.  Shared within two weeks of the time the experience occurred.

4014.  Lisa F Probable NDE  9/9/2015.  Probable NDE 7774.    I was repulsed at this vision, until I saw my daughter, who was then 5 years old, sitting by herself playing on the 'beach'.  This is when I realized that I was not looking at hell, which was my first assumption, but that I was looking at earth.  It was then that I realized that I had my oars, and that I had the choice to go back to earth to be her mother again.  I realized that she was the only reason that I needed to be on earth.  I realized that I could choose to go to heaven though.  It was all my choice.  If I did not row, I would naturally be taken to heaven.  It did not take me any time at all to grab my oars and start rowing with all my might to my daughter.  I was heartbroken that I was unable to go to heaven, but I also knew that I would just be going there LATER, when my work on earth was done.  I was angry at my daughter for existing.  I kept thinking things like, 'because of YOU I have to come back to this horrible place!!!'  I had to fight the currents of the water very, very hard to move the boat toward earth.   Probable NDE due to carbon monoxide poisoning.

4013.  Deborah H NDE  9/9/2015.  NDE 7772.    I left my body. As I was ascending, I saw a binder come in front of me with big metal rings on it. The binder had many pages that turned in front of my eyes. I saw everything that I had ever done wrong. As innocent as I may have been at 7 years old, I had obviously done many things that were not acceptable, like cursing or kicking an animal. The pages on that binder turned so fast it was hard to imagine how my brain was processing all that information. But somehow I knew every item that I was being judged for and I felt so bad for what I done. Then I flew very quickly through a wormhole-like cloud to a grayish cloud like a slowly spinning tunnel with large soft grayish looking clouds padding the inside of the spiral tunnel formation.  
NDE at age 7 due to drowning.

4012.  GaeLawree C NDE  9/9/2015.  NDE 7771.    I then left my body and went into a tunnel of very bright light. It was very peaceful, a feeling of ecstasy, peace love and belonging. I saw different levels or scenes of, time, I am not sure, it was like glimpses of time. I was given natural knowledge of things I was not taught on earth. I came to a place, it was a place of energy, I was met by my maternal grandfather. He greeted me, and there were others that I knew. They were all energy, all of them, they had no physical bodies but I knew them, recognized them, each one. A huge energy swept around us. I believed this to be God. He told me I had to go back. I told me I would experience great pain but I would come through it, I knew He would take care of me there. I immediately went back down, in fraction of an instant.  
NDE at age 16 due to head injury from motorcycle accident.

4011.  James D Probable NDE  9/3/2015.  Probable NDE 7768.    I suddenly became aware that I was outside of my body and looking down at it from the ceiling. I felt panic and tried to return to my body, but to no avail. I then noticed a blackness surrounding me with a light in the distance. As the light got closer the panic was replaced by love times-a-thousand. I communicated with whatever it was through thought. No words were spoken but I understood perfectly. I was informed that it wasn't my time. I felt like I was caught trying to cut class. It was like I was trying to get away with something, yet the Being had so much love and understanding like a parent has for a child. I pleaded not to return but the presence in the light reached out and guided me back into my body.
Probable NDE associated with kidney failure.  Apparent remarkable healing after experience.

4010.  Adelheid L Probable NDE  8/29/2015.  Probable NDE 7762.  Original in German, translated to English by Marguy  I was lying in the lap of a young man and he said, 'Have no fear you are safe here'. I had no pain anymore and no fear. It was very silent around us, until from the left side small ribbons with an open mouth passed by, where one mouth turned towards me, and smiled as if it would know me. When the young man and I were alone again, the sun was shining from the right side, otherwise it was dark around us. Then I wanted to know who the young man was.  
NDE after surgery.

4009.  Laura NDE  8/29/2015.  NDE 7763.  From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy  Then I saw both, the nurses and the doctors, clearly while their faces had a panicked look. I had a view on the heart monitor from above. I heard each of the staff's comments as they also saw the curves on the monitor. I heard that they were talking about me like I was dead. They said things like, 'Oh she must have been beautiful this woman, with her curly hair. The worst is that we will have to inform the elderly man. Do you think it's her husband?' When one replied, 'No, he is too old. He must be her father and the young man by his side, must be his son,' I became aware that my life was at risk.   
NDE from heart problems.

4008.  John D NDE  8/29/2015.  NDE 7764.    I feel this quote from the 1990s film 'Jacob's Ladder' explains this moment better than I could: 'The only thing that burns in hell, is the part of you that won't let go of your life. Your memories, your attachments, they burn them all away. 'But they're not punishing you,' he said. 'They're freeing your soul.' If you're frightened of dying and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But, if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the Earth. It's just a matter of how you look at it that's all. So don't worry, okay?'  
Very brief NDE due to faint and seizure.  Shared 8 days after its occurrence.

4007.  Mike G NDE  8/29/2015.  NDE 23049.    I saw myself through someone else's eyes.  This person was in a large barn structure covering about a 100 yard area.  The whole view black and grey.  There were a couple hundred figures walking around taking tiny steps with their heads looking down. I was seen about 10 yards in the foreground, but I was seen in color. I was wearing a red shirt and had a yellow beam of light from the top of my head going upwards.  
NDE due to cardiac arrest.  Very atypical NDE content.  Shared just days after experience occurred.

4006.  Frank L Probable NDE  8/24/2015.  Probable NDE 7761.    I was above myself and floating upward. I was at peace and felt no pain. The nurses were around me. The doctor was sitting there looking up at me smiling. It was like 3D, so clear and vivid. I could see every detail of his face. Then he put his hands on my chest, still smiling and said, 'Not yet.' At the same time that he said this, his face just melted. I saw this so clearly, that it was a little creepy but I was not scared at all.   
Probable NDE due to cardiac arrest.

4005.  Marta M NDE  8/23/2015.  NDE 7760.  From Japan  I was still being pulled deeper and deeper into the ocean but this alien calm came over me. I wasn't suffering or suffocating. My 'guardian angel' was at my right. I knew this but couldn't see him. He introduced himself to me earlier. He talked to me telepathically and I could hear him with no other sound. He said I've done much good in my life and I could go. Because of that reason and that I wouldn't suffer, they'd put me to 'sleep' before I felt anything. He also said I accomplished my mission but that my life force was diminishing. If I stayed, things would be an effort and become very hard.   
NDE due to drowning.

4004.  Josh J Probable NDE  8/23/2015.  Probable NDE 7759.    There was no light or pearly gates. I think this was probably because I was in some sort of purgatory. Even so, the peace I felt was like nothing I have ever experienced before or since. There, I got into a conversation with a male-voiced 'Entity.' In my opinion, it was God or an Angel. The Entity told me that it was not my time but that I could 'go' if I wanted to. I immediately told the Entity that I wanted to go. The Entity then mentioned how this would irreparably hurt my Mother. I quickly changed my mind and said that I would stay.   
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt.

4003.  Richard M NDE  8/23/2015.  NDE 7756.  From France. Original in French, translated into English by Marguy.  I immediately left my body, seeing my double on the bed. I was caught up towards the sky.  I found myself crossing a black tunnel, but the tunnel was not made of matter.  It is difficult to describe; there was a sound or a kind of music the whole time of crossing. I saw an intense light at the end of the tunnel.  The light was not aggressive.  I was a good light that I had absolutely no fear of.  I was aware of this goodness, of this very restful state.  As I approached the end of the tunnel, I saw a silhouette. As I got about two or three meters from the silhouette, it lifted its arm and pointed its finger towards the other end of the tunnel, where I had come from.  I found myself projected with the speed of light, if I can say so, into my body.  
NDE from chest pain and fainting on the bed.

4002.  Simon C NDE  8/23/2015.  NDE 7755.  From France. Original in French, translated into English by Marguy.  I saw from above that the surgeon was operating on me.  I saw everything in detail that he did.  I saw my father who had been deceased for 2-1/2 years.  He told me that my time had not yet come and that my mother and sister still needed me.  
NDE from auto accident.

4001.  Serena NDE  8/23/2015.  NDE 7753.  From Italy.  Original in Italian, translated to English.  I remember PERFECTLY that I entered a dark tunnel. I was blissfully flying, laughing and happy like I never have experienced before. Around me it seemed to be snowing. I was flying.  The air was cool and I could hear happy laughter. I don't know what blocked me, what or who sent me back.  
NDE from a seizure triggered by looking at Christmas lights.

4000.  Émilie M Shared Death Experience  8/23/2015.  Shared Death 32380.  From France. Original in French, translated into English by Marguy.  This golden light radiated such an intense joy that I had the impression that on my face a big smile was forming, covering my face completely. This immense joy, I had never experienced on earth. Yet, the joy was familiar to me and was putting a comforting balm on my heart, instantly wiping out my suffering. Inside of the ball were two bright forms with vague outlines. I could only see the form of a head and chest; I saw neither arms nor legs. It were as if they were looking at me through a window. The being of light at the right seemed female to me. She was like a guide accompanying my friend, who was at the left from my viewpoint. It communicated with me by thought, 'There is a dear being that wants to see you a last time.' I sensed a feeling of compassion and sadness for our earthly sufferings, coming from the guide. I immediately reached towards the light, with what I think was my 'energetic hand.' I grabbed a protuberance resembling a hand of golden light, that came out of the light ball.  
Shared Death Experience with a friend.

3999.  Sergio S NDE 8/22/2015.  NDE 7751.  From Peru. Original in Spanish, translated to English by Sean.   Next, images of my mother and daughter appeared, as if I was thinking about them. Again, I said, 'I HAVE TO RETURN.' This time, I was able to break the transparent film. I appeared in a very bright tunnel. It looked like luminous acrylic paints of different colors were falling. I went through the tunnel. I felt very happy and was aware that I was returning.   
NDE from allergic reaction to antibiotics.

3998.  Vikki H NDE 8/22/2015.  NDE 7752.  I found myself in total darkness with no contact to the earth. I was extremely happy and content. I knew who I was and had no fear. I did not care about the past and only wanted to continue being extremely content. Over the next half hour, one sense came back at a time. This happened very slowly until I was in a lot of pain.  
NDE due to criminal attack with head injury.

3997.  Erica P NDE 8/15/2015.  NDE 7750.    As I went further up the tunnel, the light got bigger and brighter. Then I was in the throne room of God. Jesus Christ was seated next to God. The throne room was pure white. Then I stood there in absolute awe at the beauty of Jesus. Jesus was wearing a white robe with a purple sash and had flames in his eyes. His golden crown had many bright jewels in it. The jewels were purple, green, and red. I looked back at Jesus and his sash. Then the sash turned red. I was looking into His eyes. I saw forever in them: He was so beautiful. Then I remember bowing before Jesus and God. They both spoke to me, but I do not remember what was said by them.  
NDE due to overdose of medication.

3996.  Tristan JCG Probable NDE 8/15/2015.  Probable NDE 7749.  From the UK.  I can remember that I was seeing reality became liquid and that all the colors on earth were traveling with my presence inside of it. I was traveling at high speed through some sort of pipeline leading to a hole. I was like a swirl such as like water being sucked down a hole in the sink. Once I was through the hole, I heard several noises like I was going through a sound barrier 'bof, bof, bof.' I was tumbling and had difficulty flying straight like I was in space. I remember being very cold. I could hear myself thinking, 'It's so cold.' I felt frightening for a second. Then I saw what looked like a black hole. I reminded me of the movie 'Contact' with Jody Foster. I saw flashes of very blight light. I did not want to go through the back hole but I had to go. I had no choice in the matter.  
Probable NDE due to heart attack.

3995.  Fred B Experiences  8/15/2015.  Drug Experience 7748.  From Canada.  After being diagnosed with mild Asperger syndrome in 2006, I started using recreational ketamine for about 3 years. As you know, a lot of NDE have been reported by ketamine users in the past.  And of course, they also happened to me.  
Here are several Ketamine experiences.  It is up to the reader to determine if NDEs are 'brain chemistry.'

3994.  Jeanne MK NDE  8/15/2015.  NDE 7747.    I thought, 'What on earth are those people doing?' as I watched them racing around my shell of a body with the shock paddles trying to get my heart started again. I remember laughing and thought, 'Oh, no. I'm out of here.'  Then I was where someone was showing a very negative side of where people could go and stay. I just knew that I had to be the wrong place and I said, 'Please not me. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry for anything I have ever done.' All of a sudden, I was floating down this mother of pearl path.  I was moving and the path was so much more beautiful because it had colors in it that I don't think I could ever begin to describe.  I moved to a path where people were walking.  Some of these people I knew from before came to me and asked me, 'Do you want to go see the buildings?' Of course I said, 'Yes.'  
NDEs due to unknown illness resulting in cardiac arrests.

3993.  Duane S NDE  8/15/2015.  NDE 7743.    As I was shown around, it was explained to me how most of our celestial, eternal knowledge is blanked-out during our chosen life spans on earth. We must temporarily forget most of what our higher-self already knows so we can immerse ourselves in the roles we have chosen to play. Furthermore, they said that it might take a while for all my knowledge and memories to return. To ease the transition back into this realm, I was told to think of my time on earth as an extended visit to the ultimate theme park. Consider it a place with thrilling rides and various adventures that I could choose to experience or not. I was also reminded that the reason we leave the celestial realm at all was for the excitement, variety, adventure, and entertainment that different incarnations offer. However, to take all our celestial knowledge with us on our various adventures would have ruined the very experience that we had chosen to live. Someone there said that I should think of our trips to other realms as choosing a new novel to read. I can choose a new book, depending on what I am in the mood for. Furthermore, if I knew every turn and twist of the story, line by line, prior to reading it, it would spoil the fun.'  
Astonishing exceptional NDE due to illness.

3992.  Stephanie P NDE  8/14/2015.  NDE 7746.    I believe I lost consciousness but remember everything around me being bright white light. I was above my body and could see myself being wheeled out to the ambulance. I was not moving but remember seeing myself there. It was all okay though. I was calm and felt at peace with not coming back. Relaxed and like everything was going to be fine from now on because all the other stuff didn't matter anymore.  
Two severe asthma attacks and associated experiences described.

3991.  Mohammad Z NDE  8/14/2015.  NDE 16083.  Non-western NDE from Iran. Original in Farsi, translated to English by Amir.  One example of my life review was when I was a little kid. We were traveling by car and stopped somewhere along the way. There was a river not far from the road and I was asked to go and bring some water in a bucket from that river. I went to fill up the bucket but on my way back, I felt that the bucket was way too heavy for me. I decided to empty some of the water to make the bucket lighter. Instead of emptying the water right there, I noticed a tree that was alone by itself in a dry patch of land. I took the effort to go out of my way to that tree and emptied some of the water at the tree base. I even waited there a few seconds to make sure the water is soaked in the soil and is absorbed. In my life review, I received such an applaud and joy for this simple act that it is unbelievable. It was like all the spirits in the Universe were filled with joy from this simple act and were telling me we are proud of you. That simple act seemed to be one of the best things I had ever done in my life! This was strange to me, because I didn’t think this little act was a big deal and thought I had done much more important and bigger things. However, it was shown to me that what I had done was extremely valuable because I had done it purely from the heart, with absolutely no expectation for my own gain.   
Exceptional Muslim NDE from an auto accident.

3990.  Marcel W NDEs  8/14/2015.  NDEs 7729.  From the Netherlands. Original in Dutch, translated to English by Garry.  On those five occasions I left my body and wanted to be near that curtain because it gave that fine, warm love feeling. It was during those times I would have not a single form of pain and this was very pleasant and inviting. Then I would hear rhythmic ringing leading me away from the curtain and slipping back into my painful body. The rhythmic noises were so loud that I would have to listen, and then it would lessen. In retrospect I came to the conclusion that my guides and Holy guardian were making sure I returned to earth and wouldn't let me pass by the curtain.   
NDEs from aorta dissection and apparently died 5 times.

3989.  Jeff D NDE  8/11/2015.  NDE 7745.    Soon, I started experiencing a calmness that was totally out of the norm; especially considering that I had just physically assaulted my assailant, forcing him to flee. As the calmness and totally peacefully feeling progressed, I soon saw my father along with another person that I could not identify. My father had died 30 years earlier and I was elated to see him. However, the shooting occurred in my next-door neighbor's front yard. My 11-year-old daughter was inside my house during the shooting. I began praying as loud as I could, asking Jesus to let me live for the sake of my daughter. One of the neighbors had worked in the local Memphis Trauma Unit and she has stated that she believed that I was gone as well as stating that she could not hear my prayer. After asking Jesus to spare me, all the pain returned.   
NDE due to being shot multiple times.

3988.   Caroline J Probable NDE  8/11/2015.  Probable NDE 7744.    I was with my paternal grandmother, who had died ten years before I was born. I felt so much love and so safe. I was SO disappointed when I came back into my body.  
Probable NDE due to reaction from medication during surgery at age 4.  Shared 52 years later.

3987.  Frank H NDE 8/10/2015.  NDE 7740.   I can remember a brief moment of darkness. Then I was in a room. But not really a room. It was just a big open space with a pure white background and glow. I was not aware of a body and I floated into the space but yet I did not feel that I was floating. I was not standing on anything. I was floating towards a group of people who were out of focus. I could not identify who they were, but they were dressed in regular clothing. One person was yelling at me, 'You're not suppose to be here.' I was still a distance away from them. Then in a flash, I was aware of my surroundings and watching the gentleman who was giving me CPR. I heard my wife telling me, 'Please don't leave me!'  
NDE due to cardiac arrest. Shared within two weeks of time NDE occurred.

3986.  Denise Probable NDE 8/10/2015.  NDE 7741.  From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.   I review my life, from my infancy until the meeting with my fiancé. The flashes are not flashes, but they resemble big pictures with golden frames and very beautiful moldings. I'm visiting the gallery of my life. I know that I'm advancing straight forward, pushed by some unfamiliar instinct. There is no space for reason and there is no goal. I have to go forward and that's all. Time doesn't exist. There is no path, yet I know that I'm going straight forward. As a background music I hear the song 'I just call to say I love you'.   
Nurse's probable NDE.

3985.  Martin C NDE 8/10/2015.  NDE 7739.  From Canada.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.   I spent a short while in blackness because during the experience time doesn't seem to exist. I felt myself rising as if I was in an elevator. At the beginning I was in blackness and then rose to be in a wonderful park. Everything was beautiful, really beautiful. More so, where people were there. All seemed happy and well. They didn't pay any attention to me. I felt very well. There was no pain, not warm nor cold and I felt no fear at all. I simply felt good, as I never had felt before. I took the opportunity of the moment to observe. Then I asked myself what I was doing there. Immediately I got a multitude of answers.   
NDE where he was aware he was having a NDE because he had read about it at age 13 or 14.

3984.  Barbara T NDEs 8/3/2015.  NDEs 16082.   From Poland.  Original in Polish, translated to English by Mal.  I don't remember how I got in the tunnel; I must have been pushed in with some great power. I was moving down the tunnel very fast at 45 degree angle. I heard loud noise that was like ringing and a whirr. I didn't have a body but the feeling of its shape somehow remained. I don't remember what I saw on my way through the tunnel. It's hard to describe. The tunnel ended suddenly and I found myself in big and bright place. I wasn't alone there. I think that on both sides of me there were exits of other tunnels and people that came through them at the same time as I.   
Two separate NDEs from surgery complications. 

3983.  Ginny H NDE 8/2/2015.  NDE 7738.    Then I was floating higher until I was surrounded by the whitest, brightest light I have ever seen. I remember thinking, 'Why does this light not hurt my eyes?' At the same time, I felt at peace. I found myself in this space. It was a huge white space. I felt love, comfort, peace, and joy that surrounded me. The feeling was in me, as if I could wrap myself in it and it was Beautiful. I walked forward to a curtain that was a beautiful flowing 'white lace' that was alive. I am not sure I can explain it, but it was like it was breathing. I am not sure how I understood that, but I did. I pushed the curtain aside and walked past it. I found myself in the presence of a male figure in a white gown made of the same material as the white lace curtain.   
NDE due to respiratory arrest during severe asthma attack.

3982.  Joschua B NDE  8/2/2015.  NDE 7737.    I could see myself under the water and I remember feeling no attachment to the body. I floated higher and higher above the scene and could see a great part of the city below me. I still had a human form while floating up, it was like a 'ghost body'. I remember looking up into the sky and then being somewhere else. This place was like being in space except with no stars. Wherever this somewhere was, I had no human form. I was like a small ball of yellow light. Though in darkness, I knew I could see in all directions at once. Around me appeared other orbs of light. The orbs were other people who had passed away. We all glowed with different shades of light. Some were more pink, some were blue and I was yellow. I remember that all of our thoughts flowed into and out of each other simultaneously. Despite this, I could still process my own thoughts. I knew that the lady near me was in her 30s, that she had died in a car accident leaving behind children but she was at peace with the fact that her husband would care for them.   
Exceptional NDE due to drowning at age 6.

3981.  Steven K NDE  7/31/2015.  NDE 7734.  When I went down for the third time, I felt this peaceful consciousness coming over me.  As I looked up from under the water, I cried out to God to save me. It was then that a very bright light appeared in front of me.  I could see what appeared to be a long tunnel with the light at the end of the tunnel. As I floated into this tunnel and towards the bright light, there appeared an individual whom I could not make out.  It was standing at the end and pointed towards the opposite end of the tunnel from where I entered. I had this feeling from him that it wasn't my time yet and I was to go back. 
NDE due to drowning.

3980.  Siobhan B Probable NDE  7/26/2015.  Probable NDE 7733.    I was catapulted through a white tunnel. Then I walked up the stairs to a huge Greek building that looks JUST like the Parthenon in Athens, Greece I went inside and saw the beautiful, white marble flooring. I went down a long hallway and there was a room with thousands of scrolls. I pulled one out to read it. It was writing that I've never seen before. Then the writing disappeared in front of me.   
Probable NDE at age 5 due to allergic reaction.

3979.  Brent Probable NDE  7/26/2015.  Probable NDE 7732.   Next thing I knew, my eyes opened up and I'm sitting in the bed with the most golden and brightest, yet warmest, light I have every seen or experienced. It was shining through a window to my left. There was no pain; there was no fear. I felt completely at ease. At this point I felt a slight brush on my left hand.  As I looked to the side of my bed, there was a woman sitting with me. She was completely engulfed in this golden light. I could not make out her face and she wasn't looking at me. She slowly continued to brush my hand over and over again. I attempted to speak, 'Where is my mom?' But she didn't reply.  
Probable NDE associated with surgery at age 13.

3978.  Nancy T NDE  7/26/2015.  NDE 7730.    I felt light, weightless. I felt no stress or pain. I was elevating up into the sky. It was night. There were stars and moonlight. There were other people, lots of souls being elevated into the sky with me. I was not scared. I got to the opening of a long big tunnel. It was dark inside the tunnel but there was a light at the end. It was too far away. At the opening of the tunnel, an old man with a white beard was inspecting the souls and letting people through. But some people needed to go back. When it was my turn, he said to me in Arabic, 'It is too early for you. You haven't finished yet.'   
NDE due to loss of consciousness from unknown cause.

3977.  Albert Probable NDE  7/26/2015.  Probable NDE 7727   While in that state, I was in a Black Void.  I was at peace with everything and was not afraid.  
Probable NDE due to cardiac arrest.

3976.  Brian P NDE  7/26/2015.  NDE 7726.  From Canada  I was in a black place that did not feel like a tunnel but was vastly open. I was moving to a 'light' that was not bright but it was golden-soft like a cloud at sunset. I mostly remember the peaceful feeling with no panic; just calm in my mind. I also remember thinking, 'I guess I get to find out what happens now.' I knew I was dead and had no body anymore. I realized that I was not breathing now and also thought about the fact that I was dead and did not care. I was actually quite calm and in a state of wonder. I thought about the 'cloud' I could see. I wondered why I could see at all. I wondered how fast I was moving as there was no point of reference, but I could feel I was moving for sure. I remember coming to the 'cloud.'   
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

3975.  Dave Z Probable NDE  7/14/2015.  Probable NDE 7725.    I was rocketed straight upward to a bright light. It was like a different galaxy, or some kind of vortex in the sky. When I hit the light, everything was backwards. Up became down and I was then racing downward. As it became closer to earth that was in black and white, I started to see streets and houses. It felt like a town but when I got closer, the earth then turned to blue and green in color. Upon impact, the colors expanded into an explosion of blue and green.  
Probable NDE due to cardiac arrest and coma for five days.

3974.  Stephanie R NDE 7/14/2015.  NDE 7724.    While I was on the other side, I had counsel about whether to go back. It was to be my decision. I would have injuries to deal with. And the dysfunctional life that I came from would still have to be lived. I also knew that I had plans for this life. I had curiosity and even enthusiasm for coming back. I became aware that the span of a lifetime is a speck compared to a place where time does not exist. I was comforted by knowing that this place, that I was lucky enough to visit, would always be there. I knew that I would be back someday, at the right time. I decided to complete my life plan. I realized it had been a plan from before this life began. I was given a choice. And I chose to come back.  
NDE at age 11 due to being hit by a car while riding a bicycle.  Interesting apparent fear-death experience prior to NDE during period of unconsciousness.  Shared 49 years later.

3973.  Christian Y NDE  7/11/2015.  NDE 23034.  At this point, I somehow instantly and fully comprehended this as an out of body experience. While sitting there and feeling an overwhelming silence, I felt absolutely no pain. I started to lift of the bench from next to the EMT and floated above everything while looking down. I thought for a very brief moment that I physically started to turn away when I saw they were trying to revive me. Just as I felt myself turn and float through the roof of the ambulance, an extremely loud and physical WOOOOSH threw me right back into my body!'   
NDE due to being hit by car while on motorcycle.

3972.  Diana Possible NDE  7/11/2015.  Anesthesia 7722.  From Columbia.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Sean.  I began to feel happy.  I found myself in a garden with beautiful golden yellow flowers, maybe a relative of the sunflower.  I went along touching the flowers with my hands.  I started to feel an indescribable emotion akin to extreme happiness.  As I walked along, I saw in the background  a very bright light.  It was as if looking directly at a spotlight.  It was too strong, but it made me so happy to look at it.  I ran and ran to be with this light because I wanted to stay there forever.  
Anesthesia experience during surgery.

3971.  Shawn C NDE  7/11/2015.  NDE 7719.   I had been floating through total darkness with the feeling of indescribable love all around me. I finally came face to face with God.  He looked into my eyes.  I could tell that he knew everything I had ever done, things I was thinking at that moment, and things I would say or do in the future. You can't lie to God. He was very pleasant and said two things to me. He spoke telepathically from his eyes to mine. He said, 'I'm not ready for you yet.  There are things I want you to do first.' Then I came back to consciousness.      
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

3970.  Bil VandenBush NDE  7/6/2015.  NDE 10081.  Interview Recorded by NDERF 3/5/2004. Transcribed by Amey G. 7/5/2015.  Beyond me, I could see that there was a beautiful setting. It was almost this pristine meadow and water and I wanted to move there. I had this feeling that I needed to move toward that. But as I did, another being approached me, one that was obviously someone that was in charge, someone in authority. And that person said that I couldn’t go on, that I had to return – go back where I’d come from. And he told me that I had a higher purpose to fulfill and that I’d be fulfilling that purpose and that at some point, after that purpose was fulfilled, I would return to that place.
Exceptional combat NDE from during the Vietnam war.

3969.  Alex H NDE  7/5/2015.  NDE 7717.  From the U.K.  I was looking down from the ceiling of a room at myself. Everything was very white and bright. My body was lying on a surgery-type bed with medical staff around it. One person was trying to wrap a silver blanket over my body and I could clearly hear them saying, 'Breathe, Alex, breathe. Come on, breathe.' Then I took a breathe and was instantly back in my body.  
NDE due to respiratory arrest after surgery.

3968.  Elizabeth T NDE  7/5/2015.  NDE 7716.  Interviewed and transcribed by Amey G.  I saw a light that I can't explain but it was the brightest light I've ever seen. There were two brown-haired children sitting at a table; one was a daughter that I had miscarried and the other was my daughter Michelle L's miscarried son.  They were grown up.  I was happy to see them and they hugged me.  My grandson, he was a little bit bigger than his two brothers on earth.  My daughter Susan, looked just like Michelle her sister.  I didn't know the reason why the miscarriages happened, so always had a sense of worry as to what became of them.  They looked like they were very, very happy, which made me feel a lot better.   Both children looked at me.  My grandson said, 'Grandma, go back, we don't need you.'  My daughter said, 'Ma, we're happy, we don't need you. Go back.'
NDE due to complication during surgery.

3967.  Katie E NDE  7/1/2015.  NDE 7714.  From the U.K.  I collapsed and hit the back of my head on the pavement and I had a seizure like an epileptic fit for about 2 seconds. After the short fit, which I have never had prior to this event or after, my eyes opened as I gained consciousness to see my boyfriend and two sweet women who had stopped to help. I was only out or a few seconds but I know I travelled to another world which felt like I was there for hours and hours, but I couldn't really put a time duration on it, all I know is it was a lot longer than a few seconds. I have no real memory from the other world that I travelled to just I have the feeling that I travelled through the most beautiful paradise I have ever seen and when I reached the destination I spoke to very wise knowledgeable beings, like God or Jesus. These people gave me knowledge and an understanding of the universe which I wanted to share with people on this earth. Then everything was black again and it felt like all the memories of this beautiful amazing place and the people that I met, all the memories were taken from my mind and it felt like sand falling through my fingers… It felt like they or the other world did not want me to bring the knowledge back and I believe there is a reason for this.  
NDE due to fainting and head injury at age 15.
