3645.  Ronnie D NDE  4/12/14  At that time a knowledge came to me that if I wanted any chance to live, I needed to slow the car down so when the tire went over me, the body had to be on its back. I knew somehow that if the car ran me over on my stomach, it would not survive. I did, I slowed the car down and was directing the car when to go over the body. I did get it to run over the body facing up and now I had to have the same thing happen with the back tire. The car being so low to the ground was making the body (my body) to roll over and over, Once it got near the rear tire I slowed down the car again so it ran over me facing up. It did, it ran me over facing up. Now the body was stuck behind the rear tire and a big clump of snow that was stuck to the car… In the morning the doctors began coming in one by one. They were discussing my condition and could not explain what happened to me with each other. But I knew. Finally the doctors went out and told my family, we cannot explain it, but we cannot find any blood in his cavity. He is stable and that they will continue watching me.
NDE at age 15 due to sledding on snow into path of oncoming car.  Remarkable sense of slowing car that might have saved his life.  Apparent inexplicable recovery after being run over by car.

3644.  Lauren NDE 7184  4/12/14  From France.  Originally from Algiers.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.  I saw a thick rope of a silvery white color coming out between my lungs, and what shocked me at once, was that this rope was  going straight from my body towards the window. While looking through the window to see where this rope was leading, I saw three women holding the other end of the rope. They were suspended in the air holding the end of the rope and were pulling. They were upside down, their feet towards the sky and their hands and faces towards me still pulling the rope. I panicked, understanding that if they would pull too strongly I would be dying. I also pulled at  the rope at my side to prevent it detaching from my torso and I asked why they were doing that. They answered me without talking.  They thought and I heard that they were saying, "It's time". I yelled "No! No! I don't want this, I'm scared, leave me alone, I'm scared I want my mother! Mama! Mama!" Then they asked me why I didn't want to go, and I answered them, "I didn't do anything yet, I'm not married, I have no child, my family needs me, what good to be born if it is to leave now, leave me alone, I want to stay here, I don't want to leave my family, go away!" and I pulled the rope even harder towards myself.
NDE from going unconscious.

3643.  CB Possible NDE  4/12/14  I was helping my Dad paint window exteriors at home, and jumped off of a high chair. My sneaker caught on a small tab sticking up on the chair edge and I fell and twisted my left knee, tearing the anterior collateral ligament. Three days of suffering later, my parents decided to take me to my Aunts' orthopedic specialist at St. Josephs. Dr, examined my swollen knee, and drew three bowls of blood from it, relieving a lot of pain and pressure. He did the surgery the following morning. While I was deep asleep, all of a sudden, I was floating above and behind Dr. left shoulder, observing as he carefully sutured up my knee. I could hear classical music playing. I could see the nurse, the anesthesiologist, and myself, and I remember feeling no pain, no temperature, nothing but interest in the work the doctor was doing with those stitches. If I recall correctly, there were over 50 of them. Then, I recall waking up in recovery.
Anesthesia Possible NDE, no apparent life-threatening event at the time.

3642.  Marny NDE  4/12/14  I was very calm watching myself and felt no pain.  The bright lights were intense, but I wasn't "heading"" anywhere, it was extremely fast, maybe 20 seconds. I felt a slight push and I was back in my body… Saw myself being revived on the delivery table.  Saw the medical staff from above. 
NDE due to complication of delivery.

3641.  Kristine J NDE  4/12/14  While still reeling from everything the woman I was with was saying and showing me (she had been talking although I was too stunned to comprehend), she asked if I wanted to see how New Mom met my husband. I said yes (mistake, in retrospect!)  I watched her meet and fall in love with my husband.
NDE due to H1N1 bird flu.  Remarkable and detailed future awareness of how her husband would meet another women and marry her.  However, she recovered and the future she saw would not happen.

3640.  Maime S NDE  4/12/14  Served seafood in restaurant that tasted off. I immediately told my husband that it tasted funny and pushed it aside on my plate. Within a few minutes I looked at my husband and passed out forward onto table.  My husband pushed me back and chair fell backwards.  I remember the tunnel but it isn't like many describe it.  More like the tunnel is flowing over you.  Each studs you look there are pieces of your life playing back.  Even experiences you had not remembered.  The feeling was absolute peace and calm and I found myself loving that I could almost feel the emotions with each ""movie"" experience of my life I was watching.  In these experiences I was with family that had passed and some that had not.  And lots of experiences from when I was very young.  It was a feeling of safety and love.  And far away in the distance I could faintly hear my name being called. When I turned to tell the person calling my name to please hush so I could carry on this amazing experience I was jolted back into my body.  With that they managed to get a heartbeat.
NDE due to allergic reaction.  Prominent life review.

3639.  Rebecca P NDE  4/5/14  I concluded that this horrible experience was my eternal punishment. That I would have to stay in this lonely place for eternity and think constantly about how I did this really wrong thing. I let my child and my family down. I was sad but I accepted what I had done wrong and wished that I could have done better. It felt like I was there an eternity. I think once I began to feel remorse is when I heard a voice speak to me. I can't recall it sounding like it had a specific gender, nor was it a voice I recognized. Also, I never saw anything as it spoke. I remained in this darkness while it spoke to me. It said, "You don't belong here. You need to find something in life that you love, and get out."
NDE due to inhaling nitrous oxide without oxygen.

3638.  Ivan NDE  4/5/14 From the UK.  As I thrashed and panicked, a great calm came over me with a sense of 'all will be well'. This occurred during the underwater phase of drowning. I sensed peace, calm, love awaited me upon death. The intervention of an adult who pulled me out of the water simultaneously snatched me back from a growing sense of calm and peace. While 'calmed' I was outside my body, looking at me thrashing in the water. Slowly, I felt myself drift ever further away, still watching me.
NDE due to drowning at age 10.

3637.  Daniel M Probable NDE  4/5/14  I found myself in what appeared to be a confined space similar to a tunnel. Surroundings not totally identifiable to earthly landscape. A being appeared smiled. At that very moment I realized that I was no longer in possession of my physical body. I had no conception of time but many thoughts. The thoughts were of my loved ones. I had a heightened sense of awareness. Another being appeared between myself and the first being. I could not see any lips moving but I heard the second being say, I have chains, locks and keys to those locks, he is not yours. The expression on the first beings face became angry, then he disappeared. The second being slowly turned towards me and smiled a warm loving smile. I at that very moment I knew that I was being sent back.
Probable NDE due to motorcycle accident.

3636. Steve T NDE 7172  3/31/14  I had apparently died of a hit over the head with a 4 x 2 hardwood timber.  As my children when I returned from work were next door and the guy there was injecting himself with drugs and having heard of this I went there and was hit on the head. I asked a nursing sister about this after waking and was told I had died. And after they had tried everything a time later I simply sat up and awoke. I asked her and she said nobody could believe it.  During this time I was somewhere and it was all cloud then my father walked towards me and said Son it’s not your time you'll have to go back. I felt so wonderful. Then a voice so powerful and strong as if echoing in fog said he has to go back now. And my father faded away and I sat up in bed. The nursing sister and staff could not believe it as I had died.
NDE due to being hit on head.

3635.  Mary W NDE 7170  3/31/14  My blood pressure and heart rate had fallen. I remember watching people work on me.  I was looking on from above them. I heard everything they said and did. The doctor couldn't get a central line on me. The scene was chaos.
NDE due to severe trauma.

3634.  Eugenia M Possible NDE  3/31/14    One day a "voice" in my head, whom I now call "Dark Man" or "DM" for short, was telling me to just stop the pain for good. I did what he said, putting various drugs into a bowl and swallowing them! Washed it down with liquor. When I was found hours later, I was near dead and the EMTs started emergency support. Later, while in the hospital, I remember a floating feeling and a very warm soft light. I was in a beautiful field full of wild flowers. The light was coming over the horizon, like a morning dawn! I was completely at peace, feeling only surrounding warmth, light and total love. As I floated toward the light, I was very eager to reach it but then a shadowy form was off to my left. I felt a touch on my left shoulder and a voice saying "it's not my time. I had to go back" I didn't want to go back....I was happy where I was! The voice said "no, you have to go back".
Possible NDE due to suicide attempt with medications.

3633.  Serge D NDE  3/31/14 From Hungary.  In that moment a sucking force coming from above, drags me into a higher stream where I literally left the earth, passing the moon and all the solar system, it felt quiet fresh, a bit cold, and I felt a bit of panic.  I saw the whole Universe floating around me or I was floating inside this elements. They are no words to describe the view, the feeling, the experience.  I stand, and contemplate the beauty of the big bang theory, the evolution, the balance between good and less good.  Again then another voice told me to continue. In a flash of feeling, I was trespassing a zone and arrived within a field of 'oily' colors, pure, changing, a wind blows perfume air, you have a sound of joy around you. 
NDE due to car accident. 

3632.  SW N Possible NDE  5/1/06  From Canada.  On the way I was starting to lose consciousness.  I knew I was in the car, but I had no sense of time or reality. I had peripheral vision and could see the trees and sky on the sides of the road speeding by.  In front of me was a long tunnel of bright, yet soft, very white light. Apparently I was talking, but I don't remember.  I was saying that I didn't want to go to the party.
Possible NDE from allergic reaction to a wasp sting.

3631.  Victoria P Probable NDE  5/1/06  I could see my body on the operating table.  I could also see and hear the medical staff, but was not interested in what they were saying.  I was surrounded by God and bright white light.  God comforted me and invited me to heaven.  God also gave me the choice to come back to life to raise my three year old son.  Since, I was a single mom,  I am glad I made the choice to return. 
Probable NDE from surgery complications.

3630.  Heidi C Probable NDE  3/23/14  The next thing I remember is waking up in the most beautiful warm, golden white light.  I was bathed in it.  The warmth I felt was indescribable.  I remember when I was little staying at my grandma and grandpa’s house.  When I slept over at their house I always slept the most soundly and peacefully.  I felt safe, warm and secure.  The light and warmth felt like that only a million times more wonderful.  I felt like I was wrapped in Angel wings.  I had no physical body; I just was.  I was surrounded by loved ones and other beings, they felt like angels and saints.  I couldn’t see them but I sensed they were there surrounding me.  I kept receiving three messages telepathically:  I kept hearing that I was unconditionally loved, that things are always they way that they are supposed to be and that everything would always be alright.  I knew that my husband, family, friends and my babies would be Okay.  I knew that they would always be Okay.  I knew that if I didn’t go back everything would be fine that everything was always the way it was supposed to be.  The love, peace, contentment, happiness and unconditional love I felt were indescribable.  I felt like I was home.
Probable NDE while under general anesthesia.

3629.  Abigail K Probable NDE  3/23/14  The being took me over to "sit". I still don't know how. He or she said to me without words, "You have to go back". I responded defiantly, "No I'm staying home!" The being again made the same statement and I again refused until he or she just bore something in me. The knowledge that I did indeed have more to do and needed to return. I was to have children and I need to know that availability of this great unspeakable love, which I referred to as God. So I traveled with others who were also going back and the handful of us left the light and walked up a small grassy hill. There was a lake there and a sun setting that never set completely. I looked at the sunset and was slammed into my body.
Probable NDE due to apparent episode of apnea while sleeping.  Remarkable encounter with a dog who died that night, and information that she would have children even though she did not believe she could.

3628.  John K Experience  3/23/14  I told God, “If you really exist, I need for you to help me right now. I’m at the end of my rope and without your help and your love I can’t go on. If you really exist, then you need to show yourself right now. If you don’t, then your silence will be the answer.”  At that moment, as I lay in this cavernous old bedroom in the corner of the abbey, the room filled with a warm wind. Rays of light seemed to encompass me, and I felt that I was picked up and cradled in these big arms. I was engulfed in the most amazing sense of compassion and love I had ever felt. I had never felt anything like this before. I knew that I was being held in Christ’s embrace. All I could see was this warm, golden light, I couldn’t actually see Christ or the Father. God spoke to me in this beautiful, masculine voice, not with words but telepathically. It was amazing. God said to me, “I’m here for you, my child. I love you completely. You are my child, and I am your Father.”
Dramatic communication from God while he was a novitiate in a Benedectine monastery and was contemplating suicide.

3627.  Timothy A NDE  3/23/14 My scope of view and clarity were enhanced. I could see everything except what was behind me well above me technically. I could hear people talking upstairs but it was inaudible as if they were very far away. I continued to float up into the air. It started to get dark but then I was covered in light. Pinkish light the best I would compare it to would be pink clouds at sunrise but warmer. I was surrounded by it and it was moving around me in a downward motion. When it stopped I could see the pink light all the way to the horizon.
NDE at age 5 due to electrocution, and also remarkable ADC briefly described.

3626.  Madeleine NDE  3/23/14  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Manuel. I remember seeing one side of my face hit the floor but I did not feel any pain. At the time this was happening to my body, I saw myself standing at the same place, seeing how my body was on the floor.  I didn't have any feelings, physical pain, any bothers, neither fear nor anguish I lost perception of time. I don't know how long I spent observing myself at the floor, trying to understand why I had fallen and smacked myself so hard and not felt any pain. After that I don't remember any thing else.
NDE from teenage suicide attempt.

3625.  Steve R NDE  3/23/14 I felt at peace. At this point, I was being drawn into a very bright, white tunnel.  As I moved further up this tunnel, I could see two large brown, closed, arched gates, like the ones you would have in a church.  On the left hand side, stood by the entrance, I saw a figure, dressed in a dark colored cowl, similar to a monk’s habit, but I could not see a face. Then I heard the immortal words, “Go back, it is not your time”. It was a woman’s voice that I heard and was very comforting in tone.
NDE from drowning as a child.

3624.  Soizi W Probable NDE  3/16/14  From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.  I was in a corridor where there were many persons. Between them I recognized the grand-father of my husband, who died some time before this.  I was in a big space, resembling a tent for a forum. There where several stands and I was standing at exactly one of them, discussing with a Buddhist monk, wearing white. He said to me: " You shouldn't come today. You will come back here when you will have the age of ??? years. You did a lot of good things in your life, you will go back. But now make the most of your life." I don't know anymore if those are the exact words, but that's the main idea of them!
Probable NDE from auto accident.

3623.  Kathy VB NDE  3/16/14 Then a peace entered in all the swirling, panic and fear that was about me.  I was somewhere under the water.  My best description is an acceptance of those words, “so this is how I am going to die”  as everything around me kept moving but I became the word “peace” and the word “love” feeling intensely loved unconditionally, nothing but love.  Love is the only earth word I can come up with to associate and describe this.  The flashes of life, the knowing of life past, all came together into one magnificent place, no past, present, future, no life in a timeline or linear, all time was now in a moment.  I knew that we as a people are all one.  There is no separation except the difference we create by ego.  Under the water I was upright and there was no panic or fear.  Arms outstretched, protected and loved ~  I was able to open my eyes under the water and see clearly.  Beautiful colors, a brightness of white light and a knowing all intertwined like fabric.  A love, like the lap of the waves above me on the surface of the ocean, wrapped all around me and through me.
NDE due to drowning.  Remarkable experience and rescue.

3622.  Cali NDE  3/16/14  My near death experience was quite different. I was physically in the ambulance but do not remember looking down on my physical self in 360 degrees as I did during the OBE. Instead I was in a place strangely devoid of detail but not a void. My mother was there; she had been deceased since I was in my mid 20s. We were seated but I do not remember any furniture. It was light there but not the bright tunnel people report seeing. She was wearing a dress she wore a lot in the last years of her life and she was not thin or sick looking anymore. We talked and she reassured me and gave me some advice, but she and I had made promise before her death that she would tell me something verifiable I did not know if this ever happened. She didn't. During the experience I knew that I was dead or dying or in danger of death but I felt no strong emotion about that. I felt distantly confused but very glad to see my mother.
NDE due to insulin shock.

3621.  Victorio NDE  3/10/14 From Argentina.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana.  While I was on the stretcher I observed a very white light at a distance, which I was approaching, I was like floating in the air. When I reached the light, I entered it and my arms disappeared through it, but part of myself was outside and did not cross that frontier. As my arms were entering, the people who were in the light came to get me. They were all my friends and family who had passed away, and I could see their complete bodies.
NDE from falling out of a bus.

3620.  Romy NDE  3/9/14 From Australia.  I was watching millions of the pictures of my life’s event, like a movie broken down into picture frames.  All the little deeds, thoughts and moments upon moments, even the ones I forgot ever happened-they were there.  It was such a fascinating sight.  The most curious thing was that the pictures were not connected to one another- they had a gap between them that looked like a string of light.  It looked like they were threaded on this string of light.  My main feelings were equanimity, awe and curiosity.  There was a strong quality of inquiry and inquisitiveness as I was examining everything.  Every time a question came to me, the answer was immediately revealed.  This unfolding of pictures and gaps developed and progressed continuously, presenting a constant delicate consequential line in perfect order, a chain of events, yet somehow they were all happening at once.  The past the present and the future were all happening at once.  It was inspiring to witness the order and sense that all these little pictures seemed to have in “the big picture”.  I felt a lot of compassion.  I was all forgiven.  In fact there was nothing to forgive.  I could see that my life had “perfect order” to it.  In some way it was like watching a mathematical equation or sum that makes perfect sense- such event and such event create this kind of result.  It was a simple portrayal of natural cause and effect with a gentle understanding.  There was no judgment, only innocence.
Exceptional NDE from lady originally from Israel resulting from car accident in India.  Remarkable and detailed comments on life review.  Received information in experience that likely saved her life.

3619.  Barbara W NDE 7152  3/9/14 It was sunny blue skies overhead. I remember walking up to a big brick house and there were beautiful flowers all around the front sidewalk. Everything was so colorful and vivid. The front door seemed to be especially illuminated and sparkly. I walked up to the front door and noticed a beautiful terra cotta tile design around the wooden door. I reached out my hand to a round metal doorknob to open the door and go inside. There was no fear or sadness. I just knew I wanted to go inside. Just as I touched the doorknob I heard someone calling my name.
NDE vs anesthesia experience immediately following surgery.

3618.  Sally D NDE  3/9/14 It was calm and warm as I drifted up and watched myself lying so peacefully on the bench in the movement, no fight and finally no pain. As the fire crew arrived I felt a strong hand on my shoulder...a hand that seemed also to have a warmth that radiated through my entire being and added visions of colors I have never experienced before(even though my eyes were closed).
NDE due to apparent unconsciousness from unknown illness.  Interesting in that OBE preceded NDE.  Experience was shared 5 days after it occurred.

3617.  Gene B NDE  3/9/14 The next thing I knew, I was up at the ceiling of my office, looking down on my body laying, all sprawled out in my recliner chair.  Then I was up in the air above my office building, it was dark, The stars were out, the street lights were on, Holy Family hospital was a city block to the south, traffic was moving on the streets within my view.  Then I instantly "went up in the sky, and ended up in a dark tunnel, with thousands of sparkly little lights on the walls and ceiling.  At the far end of the tunnel there was a light, a long distance away. In an instant I was at the end of the tunnel. This opening had looked like an inverted "V', and reminded me of the opening between vocal cords. At the end of the tunnel was a vast space, multiple colors were dancing about, ( many colors and shades that I had never seen before, This was all choreographed to awesome, ethereal music. I felt total peace, almost euphoric.
NDE from a physician who is currently retired, but was practicing at the time of the NDE.  NDE due to sudden respiratory failure.

3616.  David M NDE  3/9/14 From Canada.  It was at this point that the light got brighter and I was all around me.  My arms opened up straight out to my sides and I became weightless as if I was in a pool just floating with my arms and legs out.  It was warm and peaceful and all the thoughts of my regrets and such just disappeared along with any pain or stress.  I was relaxed and I stared straight into the source of light which was a circle and I began floating on my back towards it.
NDE due to sudden respiratory failure at age 16.

3615.  Witney NDE  3/9/14 From South Africa.  My mother sat in the middle of the station wagon and my brothers at the back. As we drove we were hit head on by a drunk driver that drove into our lane without stopping. Everything seemed to happen in slow motion. I could see his vehicle heading straight into us, and then I blacked out. I immediately forgot about everything. I was in complete darkness, it was warm and comforting. I felt safe and content. I felt loved. It was very quiet, it felt like I was swimming or floating. I felt like I was in a warm, safe cocoon. Nothing hurt. I saw a light in the distance. It was soft and shimmery. However I didn't feel the need to go there. I had to "go back". I awoke suddenly, but couldn't see well due to eye and facial injuries. I was being taken out of the car wreck.
NDE due to car accident at age 12. 

3614.  Marc-André B Possible NDE  3/6/14 From Canada.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.    I went out of my body, I saw my silver line that connected me to it, my parents were in the hospital room where I was in an incubator connected everywhere with all kinds of machines. My mother was crying and my father didn't say anything but held my mother in his arms... I turned as if looking at the ceiling, as I felt being pulled upward and I saw the light with a big soft warmth that went through my being. I almost instantly found myself in a luminous place where everything was marvelous, where I felt much, much love, infinite knowledge and above all a learning of my previous and future lives... There were light beings around me, talking to me and I felt very good, with complete trust.
Possible NDE from a child under one year old.

3613.  Silvia C Possible NDE  3/4/14 From Italy.  Original in Italian, translated to English by Fran.    I'm out of my body and I feel very well, I see a light 'surface' in front of me! .. Nothing on earth has the same consistency. It is very nice and pleasant, I feel surrounded by so much love. I want to remain in the light 'surface' that I perceive as a Tunnel, while I perceive it, I'm moving further away from my bed, and I go into this tunnel…. But after a while, something thrown me back in my little body and what is led in my thought is "this is not your time''
Possible NDE from a fever as a child.

3612.  Fabio G NDE  3/4/14 From Italy.  Original in Italian, translated to English by Fran.   I was back into the space. I could see the stars, the nebulas, the planets, and I was there in the middle. It was my reality, I was really in outer space. Before entering the tunnel I was surprised, and I could not appreciate the beauty of the cosmos. But now I am more relaxed, I feel serene, and I get emotional in front of such magnificence. I picture myself with open arms in ecstasy, even if I don't have a body. After some time, from a specific part of the space, I "feel" a presence, something, someone, I can't explain it. I saw nothing and heard no word, nevertheless, I suddenly realize that the 'speaker' had always been there, and had followed me while I was in the tunnel, and somehow he had perhaps helped me to turn back. We began a silent dialogue. An immense and unconditional love. A flow of love. We continued like that for a while, then I somehow felt that I had to go. But I deliberately stayed a little longer. That state of being was so sublime. Then I knew that I had to go.
NDE from a diving accident.

3611.  Haze NDE  3/2/14 Then there was whiteness, and then complete peace. I was with my brother and father who were both deceased. I don't remember words from them, just a feeling of total peace and safety.  I felt or heard my best friend Deb speak when she touched my hand.  She said that I had to go back, it wasn't my time.  Without question, I rose and went with her.
NDE due to seizures while donating blood.

3610.  Jane O Probable NDE  3/2/14 I was, above myself, nothing to fear because everything was perfect....even fear was perfect and there was a nonjudgmental knowing that there was a reason for fear. When I was out of my body, I didn't worry about anyone on earth because I knew that they have inside of each of them what I was feeling in that moment, which was peace, and that they were unconditionally loved by God. It was if they were each being engulfed in God’s love which was better than anything that I could possibly get close to providing, and that their life was going to happen perfectly, according to how they needed it to happen with God. It was all perfect.
Probable NDE following broken leg during skiing accident.

3609.  Ellen F Probable NDE  3/2/14 I remember seeing my body from above and having no physical feeling at all. I was then sucked downward into an unending tunnel or a vortex. It was very dark and there were red and orange flames everywhere. I was aware that I was dying and was frantic but could not escape and come back or wake up. There was the strongest emotional and spiritual feeling of being oppressed in every possible way. It is almost unexplainable how much emotional pain I felt. It was almost as if every negative feeling I had ever felt in my life were being forced on me at once. Flashes of my past and terrible choices and mistakes I had made flew by me. I also saw faces of my family members and they were all crying. I knew I was going to hell, and it was a million times worse than I had ever imagined.
Drug experience vs. NDE from drugs at age 17.  Hellish experience followed by substantial life changes.

3608.  Marie M Possible NDE  3/2/14 The first trail, was the highest and most powerful, and that was the path of spirit, where all is understood in communion between God and man.  The next trail was that of the soul, and he said that it's not as powerful, because of the soul with its beliefs from growing up, what parents were taught, and in its experiences and hurts, that the soul is hindered and therefore filters a lot out in communing and being sensitive to His Presence.  The third path is that of the body, and that is the part of us who feel His presence upon, around and within ourselves.  When I did go to infirmary, I registered a 104 degree temperature, and was assigned to infirmary for the next week and a half, with what they said was a foreign virus.
OBE that was a dream vs. fever experience vs. possible NDE.  Communication with God and understanding of three different types of communion with God.

3607.  Graeme C NDE  3/2/14 From the UK.  It was then that I sensed the sweet perfume of incense and found myself looking into a brightly lit, white walled corridor. I remember feeling very calm and not at all afraid. I think the experience lasted a brief few seconds before my breathing started and I came round. The whole experience whilst not at all unpleasant was, nevertheless quite perturbing.  As you will already have realized, I have no really positive thoughts about religion or the afterlife. However this experience has made me think again.
NDE due to exacerbation of asthma.

3606.  Austin C Probable NDE  2/23/14 From Scotland.  I was then aware of traveling through a dark tunnel and found myself on a road winding down to a beautiful rural place which contained a large rustic house set in a valley with a forest behind it. There was a sparkling river and the meadows in front of it were golden and peaceful. There may have been a mill-wheel at the far side of the house through which a stream flowed.  The forest behind looked safe and inviting and I was curious to see it and remain there. At some point I found myself turned around on the road facing up towards where the tunnel had ended. I remember nothing beyond this point.
Anesthetic experience vs NDE at age 7-8 shared by minister 56 years after it occurred.  The contributor is a minster.

3605.  Brian C FDE  2/23/14  At first I was in a pure panic but then I felt myself out of my body. Once out of my body I felt a peaceful calm, a loving reassurance. I felt the presence of love surround me and had no fear at all. It also felt familiar, like I had been through this so many times before and there was nothing to worry about.  My father suddenly reached me and scooped me up and brought me to shore.
Fear-death experience at age 5 due to nearly drowning.  Shared 50 years later.

3604.  Wanetta L Probable NDE  2/23/14  I was confused, but not afraid-I remember thrashing my arms and legs and as I looked up I saw two things.  I saw sunlight-at least that is what I think it was, and I saw a ladies arm reaching down towards me-it was a white arm encased in a shimmering sleeve.  The next thing I remember is that I was on top of the pier with a big lump on my head.  As I felt the lump and my soaking wet body, I finally cried and ran up to the cabin where my family was.   No one was there to witness what happened.  I believe to this day it was my guardian angel who saved my life.
Probable NDE due to drowning at age 5.  Shared 61 years later.

3603.  Justin M NDE 7131  2/23/14  After the impact I faded to black at that point I was in what I call a void, it was dark black empty and wide open. It was the most peaceful and calm felling I ever had, I knew with just one thought I could travel through the void and I was about to shoot myself into it when I heard a voice say "stop, don't go, its not your time and you still have a job to do" when I turned to see who was talking it was my mother, she died when I was 6 months old". I told her that I didn't want to live and I wasn't going to go back. That's when she said "you cant go yet, you have things to do first", I didn't care and I turned back to go when she said "look" when I turned I saw a woman holding a child, my mother told me this was my wife and child. my mother then told me all the major details of my life up until I die at age 47. then she told me that was my path and try to follow it, she also said my choices in life would affect my path, That's when she showed me the major choices I had to make and what would happen as a result. she showed me 5 different life paths. At that point I was ready to go back to my body and continue my life.
NDE due to suicide attempt and car crash.

3602.  Beata M Probable NDE  2/23/14  I felt I was in a dark area, like a void, but somehow, even though I could not see anything I knew there were limits to this area, borders- walls?  There were others there too, I had a sense of myself, floating, but not having control of the movement, others seemed to know how, I could sense them.  There was the sound of a bell, every now and then, it would toll singly, not regularly.  I tried to work out what was happening, then someone said, a female voice, you just got here, don't know how to move yet, even though I did not ask what the bell was, I was told every time someone died it rung.  It was then I got worried, I knew I was dead, I did not like the dark, was I going to be there always?  I then saw my life, my very short and unimpressive life, I did not feel proud of it, and it felt kind of wasted. 
Probable NDE during appendectomy surgery.

3601.  Carlos K STE  2/23/14 The whole of Heaven was loudly celebrating and rejoicing with me on my arrival! I was back!!! I could "hear" heavenly bells, trumpets, angelic choirs, laughter and all kinds of happy, joyful sounds of infinite gladness for which we have no name here on earth because those things do not exist here. I felt the unspeakable, all encompassing, unconditional Love of God for me. It felt really "personal" and because of its unconditional character is almost incomprehensible. To the point where I thought: "All this Love for me? Who am I? I am just a boy who grew up in a middle-lower class family, in a regular neighborhood, went to a regular school. I have no accomplishments. Never done anything remarkably special. I'm just a regular guy, a normal human. What I have done to deserve this? Is ALL this LOVE really for me?". The moment I finished that thought I was instantly "swallowed up" by this amazing Love. "I" was completely GONE! There was nothing but Love. No me, no God... just eternal, incomprehensible, indescribable, total, complete, absolute LOVE.
Exceptionally profound STE.  Among the most remarkable and detailed STEs ever shared with NDERF.

3600.  Ron K NDE  2/23/14  My Mom was several thousand miles away and, I ran in spirit to her. She told me years later I was there as a blue light, about 5' above floor, and she knew it was me.  She realized immediately that I must have died. She said I followed her around her home. I recall following her. I could hear her words, she could get my meanings well. I said my goodbyes to her. My experience was leaving the planet. I was very aware I was in space. I headed to the brightest area, where it all flows from. Getting closer, a group came out quickly and as I past them they called me and said they had a message.
NDE at age 15 due to blood loss from criminal attack.

3599.  Gavin C Probable NDE  2/17/14  From New Zealand.  I exited the white water into calmer water I was in a starfish position with my legs down floating about mouth height, the water had a strange ripple in the centre and I slowly started to sink.  I knew I was about to die but there was nothing I could do I couldn't move, under the water it was a grey color and I continued to descend I was looking for the rock that was creating the turbulence  that was dragging me down I couldn't understand why I was descending but there was no fear or panic the water was very warm ( bearing in mind this is ice melt ) I then spotted the cave that the water was going into it made sense now the river was going under the earth I was mesmerized by it.
Probable NDE due to drowning.  Shared just days after it occurred.

3598.  Brenda S NDE  2/16/14  From Scotland.  I was running in a beautiful euphoric lily field, a bright sunny day, long grass a fence , a tree, I was wearing a white veil over my body, I could feel the beauty and love in and surrounding me but I could also see myself through an eye shape, just watching and being myself at same time. I was beautiful and healthy again, unlike the state I was in on earth. I was laughing, unlike earth. Where I was running to meet people I knew that but I didn’t know anything else, who I was etc. I was brought round with water getting thrown over me. I saw the criminal first.  I said to myself, 'He’s not God!'  Then all the voices entered my head again, I said oh no. I asked my daughter how long I was out, she said 5 minutes.
NDE due to criminal attack.

3597.  Jim A NDEs  2/16/14  On 2 occasions I went to a strange place.  The 1st time was very short.  On the 2nd occasion, I was looking through a multicolored ‘window’ (I don't have words to better describe it) into a beautiful "tropical" garden.  The window was a series of mosaics with beautiful lights of alternating soft peaceful colors. 
NDE due to low blood pressure after massive blood loss.

3596.  Lauren K NDE  2/9/14 I left my body and went into an oar of all white light!  It was totally warm and Peaceful, pure Love emanating through me and around.  At that moment my Grandfather, who had passed away early that year, appeared to me and embraced.  "My darling, you have a decision to make." I knew the decision was to stay or to come back.  At that moment I had a opportunity to view my life.  Ever thing seemed whole and complete, I knew my dog and cat would be taken care of, and I was pretty much willing to go, but I had some questions to be answered.  I asked if there would be anything wrong with me if I chose to come back?  A voice answered "No. The only thing that would show would be the scar of the tracheotomy."
NDE due to trauma as a result of an accident while being towed behind a car in a snow saucer.  Remarkable dialogue about the later need for a tracheotomy (and that she would be OK) if she chose to return to her body, or what her cause of death would be if she chose not to return to her body.

3595.  Bailey J Probable NDE  2/9/14 I suddenly felt all of the pain slip away, just a floating, calm, sense of awareness. My thoughts were no longer sluggish, there was a level of calmness and clarity that I had never experienced before. I felt so peaceful, so relieved. There was no fear at all. I remember thinking ""so this is what it feels like to die"". I felt like I had a choice; I could sink back into my body, or I could gently float away into the peace. The only thing that brought me back was thinking that I would be leaving my young son without a mother. I reluctantly chose to live.
Probable NDE due to high fever associated with Scarlet Fever.

3594.  Marshall L NDE  2/9/14 I was crossing the four lane street in my Honda civic then out of nowhere a truck hit me at 50mph in a 40mph I was going 25mph. I was dazed/blacked out for several minutes. I saw only a glimpse of what seemed to be a city in the clouds. Then after I saw flashes of my life go by all in 2-3 minutes but seemed a lot longer in that current state of mind. When I came to my sister was shaking me awake calling me. It was so peaceful I want to go back…
NDE due to auto accident.  Shared just a few days after its occurrence.

3593.  Bob G Possible NDE  2/9/14 suddenly there was this intensely bright white light, and a being who was also very bright, but with a little blue to distinguish "her" from the light. I say her because it seemed to me at the time that it was a female presence. It was almost as if this "person" was what I had known from a bit of a Catholic background, to be the "Virgin Mary". Not necessarily, but something similar. This being related to me by way of thoughts---I guess it was, that I had a choice: I could come over to "her", or I could return. Now I should interject that the whole time there was an incredibly loving feeling right from the start. I immediately responded with my thoughts that I wanted to stay, even though there was a temptation to go, and a beckoning to do just that.
Possible NDE while recovering from fall.

3592.  Catherine A NDE 7109  2/9/14 I was walking under a wave a huge wave and I was not getting wet. There was colors of the rainbow that I have never seen. Inside this wave I felt happy and I had no pain. I was so glad to be there. I did not know that I could feel this much joy! I saw an old women up ahead of me.  I could only see her back.  She had curly grey hair and slender body. There was also lots of people and no bodies! I just felt their present all around me.  I still feel their presents to this day.  I could hear her telling me to hurry up she had so much to tell me.  When I got closer to her she turned around and I looked at her in awe! She had "my face" "my eyes" "my nose" "my hair" she looked just like me just an older version.  She was 84yrs old she told me.  She said Catherine you can't come here right now.
NDE at age 11 during experimental surgery to correct scoliosis.

3591.  Rosemary L NDE  2/9/14 I awoke suddenly feeling very calm and with the feeling that I had just visited a very spiritual place. I had gone through a tunnel but the light at the end was not all that bright. I saw a lot of figures standing at the end of the tunnel. They seemed to be sepia colored. They almost had the appearance of Monks. I felt great happiness and comfort and utter, complete love. I remember being so happy there and I did not want to leave. I was surrounded by the most profound feeling of gentle beauty and love but something was telling me it wasn't time for me to be there.
NDE due to myocardial infarction while asleep.

3590.  Cathy T Probable NDE  2/9/14 There was a bright light and a feeling of great peace and awe.  I distinctly recall thinking, ""Gee, I didn't think you could breath under water, but by golly, I sure am!""  I looked to my right and saw my mothers legs and I somehow knew that was her which gave me an even greater sense of peace and safety.  It felt divine without really knowing what divine felt like.  I never once felt any sense of panic or fear, just blissful peace and struggle whatsoever.
Probable NDE due to drowning at age 5. Shared 58 years later.

3589.  David A Probable NDE 6684  2/9/14  Suddenly, I was walking through a grain field with vivid radiant light making the surroundings seem more alive. In the distance, I saw two twin buildings with a majestic symmetry. I felt someone next to me. I asked what the buildings were, and I was told that angels just built the building and sung there. I was walked towards the buildings. There was a portal that joined the two buildings, and as I walked forward I requested if I could enter, but was told 'No.' I had to go back and fight. 
NDE from sepsis.

3588.  Jarod NDE  2/3/14 From France.  Original in French translated to English by Marguy.  As of this moment I don't know how I did brake, there was a black gap, total blackout.  I literally felt myself leaving.  I was within an inch of going into the other world, when suddenly I started to hear people on a bench some meters away.  Maybe it was this that was waking me up.  I saw the car, myself and my bike laying between two rocks. 
NDE from an accident.

3587.  Petra J NDE  2/3/14 From Venezuela.  Original in Spanish translated to English by Manuel.   I saw me afloat in an infinite vacuum, completely wreathed in a white bright light, but it was not blinding me.  I took a look down and to the sides, but there was nothing more that this light.  I was not sad, or scared or anguished, nor did I had any pain.  I was in absolute peace and wrapped in a very pleasant warmth.  I did not have any notion of time.  I did not think about my family either nor in what was happening to me.  I was not even conscious about myself.  I just perceived I was very comfortable in that place and I also felt something attracted me very softly from behind and I wanted to let go by that sensation of weightlessness and absolute peace… It was as if I were floating on top of a river without rocks or obstacles which current was very slow.   And I was there, just letting me flow. 
NDE from e. coli infection.

3586.  Paula E NDE  2/3/14 From France.  Original in French translated to English by Marguy.  At that moment I saw in front a path leading  upwards into the sky, I engaged on this path that seemed marvelous to me, two angels keeping on each side, both were golden, they were rather childlike, cherub style, and they opened a door to let me pass: a big gate opened in front of me. The angels were smiling and what I felt was wonderful, it was an emotion of utter joy, total success, also to be able to enter this magical place. A tree was in the middle, its branches spreading gracefully, he was made of silver. I was very moved to arrive at this place, it was no garden as there was a huge space behind this gate.
NDE from surgery complications.

3585.  Wife requested removal.

3584.  Tammy H NDE  2/2/14 I did not feel scared or confused. I felt calm and curious about the activities below. I was too high up to see the people in enough detail to identify them.  I felt as if my back was against a barrier. I knew the barrier was not visible to me; but, if I turned around and examined it, that I would move through it.  I did not question this knowledge.  I was not met by beings, loved ones or friends.  I did not see "the light".  The feeling of total calm and peace did engulfed me. My focus moved from the people, and I found myself very curious about a row of pine trees along the right fence line and how it looked. I remember thinking... "So, that is what they look like from up here!"  In actuality, I don't recall ever wondering about this before. But, at this moment, the trees were far more interesting than the people. 
NDE due to head injury as a result of a fall from a horse at age 13.

3583.  Nigel O NDE  2/2/14 I saw a light and started to walk towards it, I became aware I was in of what felt like a very large "tunnel" and I was moving up an incline within it.  At an undetermined point within the "tunnel" I stopped when a voice that was neither male or female, sounded soft and kind said (or sounded inside my head) "Hello Nigel don’t be afraid you have had an accident, it is not your time, you have to go back" I said I did not want to as it hurt too much and I wanted to stay here (we were almost involved in an argument) the voice told me I had no choice in the matter and I was going back as I had "things to do"? (I presume I heard in the form of language I used at the time as a nine year old boy?).   I came to, in great pain as I started to grab small breaths.
NDE at  age 9 due to fall from tree.

3582.  Betty N Probable NDE  2/2/14 While spinning in that tunnel I heard a voice saying "don't give up, don't give up" and soon enough I started seeing a blinding light. Even though I though the light can kill my eyes, I knew I had to keep watching it to get me out of there. The fly through the tunnel felt incredibly long, but after hearing the voice and seeing the light, soon I've started hearing other voices around, and that dominant voice saying "you're almost there". Then the voices came closer and closer, and I thought I heard my Mom's voice, then heard myself yelling "MOM, MOM, MOM help me" and when my Mom touched my head and answered "I'm here dear, I'm here" I woke up in tears and asked her to hold me.
Anesthesia experience. Interesting to note some similarities and differences with typical NDEs.

3581.  Brandon C NDE  2/2/14 It was like, flat black in color, and I could feel it. I was in peace for the first time since my husband’s passing. I felt love, and some type of "non-caring". I am not sure if it was my husband’s presence there, but something wrapped its love around me. I remember acknowledging myself as being""alive", but not remembering the suicide, nor anything for that matter; however, regardless of all of the pills and booze I consumed, I was no longer drunk. Everything was quite focused, regardless of the black that surrounded me. I had a feeling I had been here before as well…  I have lost all desire to take my life.
NDE due to suicide attempt.

3580.  SJ NDE  2/2/14 Then, the throne one had the 'ministers' roll some colored balls from one side of the room to the other. They were just like, colored billiard-type balls. The balls made a sound when they rolled across the floor, that echoed on the walls, even though I couldn't see the walls. That and footsteps was the only sound during the whole thing.  I was supposed to understand the balls as 'atoms'. When I got that, they moved on to the next point suddenly which was, 'that's all your world is'. Then I accepted this and understood it was the point of the 'lesson', and as soon as I did, they knew it and sent me back to my body. Apparently that was all they were keeping me to show me. I wonder if they'd have shown me more if I wasn't so scared and worried about my body.
Drug experience versus NDE with interesting insights.

3579.  Julia M NDE  1/30/14  From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.    I am in a large tunnel that narrows in the distance (the walls of the tunnel are dark, like being padded and glossy, as if I am in a human intestine, which of course is very clean) and I feel very good, weightless as if a power  was pushing me (softly) at an indescribable speed, so fast that I quickly arrive at the end of the tunnel, where a very white light is appearing and where I want to go, since I know that in this light will be happiness, love, complete well-being... The light grows more and more and very fast, and hop, here I am sitting at the edge of my tunnel; my legs dangling, in my back I feel the black tunnel and in front of me the soft white light encompassing me, warm, peaceful, not dazzling me, and which is giving me a complete well-being (the definition of universal love, the happiness that I was searching during my whole life); I am amazed, I contemplate the softness of this light and hear a wonderful music that makes me perfectly happy, a kind of music that is so beautiful that it cannot exist on earth.
NDE from surgery complications.

3578.  Irma NDE  1/30/14  From Mexico.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana.  Suddenly, I am feeling an intense pleasure, that I am happy with my parents and my children.  This pleasure is so beautiful, but a strong voice bothers me saying “Irma, I am here”…¡oh no!, it takes me out of my pleasure and I don't like it.
NDE from going unconscious.

3577.  Lana L Possible NDE  1/28/14  From Uruguay.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana.    During this time, I felt very loved, comprehended and supported.  I didn’t see a thing; everything was just perception and feelings.  Words are very limited source for describing.  The type of love perceived was infinite, unconditional, intimate, of a paternal and maternal nature, but multiplied infinitely.  That love knew me completely from the inside, it was very patient, with no limits, tender, that felt as if I was being held in cotton balls. 
Possible NDE vs. an anesthesia experience. 

3576. Neerie R NDE  1/27/14  There was a guy there, around my age, with brown hair, and we were swinging. I remember it as being the best feeling in the world. Just total bliss.  Anyway, I started to walk down a dark tunnel- but it wasn't scary, it too was warm and cozy. I heard my mom calling my name, so the last thing I saw was when I turned around to look at the beginning of the tunnel where the light from the park I was at was coming from.
NDE at age 12 due to passing out and unconsciousness.

3575. Scot W Probable NDE  1/27/14  I could see myself from above.  I looked like a crucifixion laying there, and then things, all things, things man had thrown into space...all became dust to the wind I rode now.  I was beyond the trinkets man had thrown into space and I was...moving.  It was too fast, my time was cut short, emotions I had thought were bound only to flesh became punishment for the trials I had failed.
Remarkably transcendent Probable NDE due to complications of necrotizing fasciitis (‘flesh eating bacteria’).

3574. Sara J NDE  1/27/14  From Canada.  During this time I experienced a sparkly light and a tunnel with light at the end. There was an unbelievable feeling of peace and of coming home. There was a voice speaking. I could not tell if it was my own mind or another entity, but instinctively felt that I should not try to intellectualize it, but just experience it.  At one point my whole life history flashed before my eyes and I thought of my parents.  Immediately I felt myself travelling at extreme speed from Mexico back to Canada where they lived.
NDE due to allergic reaction from tropical insect sting.

3573. Yvette P Possible NDE  1/27/14  I’m in a park. Green grass everywhere. Very pretty. Very clean. I see a black cat running up to me. It’s my Amigo – my black cat that passed away 6 months earlier. He runs towards me and leaps into my arms. He feels exactly the same. He was always a solid cat from his years on the streets. I hold him tight, I am so happy to see him. Joy fills me!! I cry a little bit. I hold him, hugging him, kissing him. He’s rubbing his cheek on my face. I am so happy to see him. He is so happy to see me. This happiness is like I’ve never felt before. I could feel his love and adoration. I have never felt happiness like this before in my life. It was peaceful and comforting and so fulfilling.  Amigo jumps out of my arms, I see him walk over to a park bench and sit next to an old man. I was about to follow him when I see an old man. Wait, is that Grandpa?! “Grandpa, GRANDPA!!?” I shout.
Possible NDE associated with heart valve surgery.

3572. Jill W NDE  1/27/14  About halfway through the tunnel, a review of my life's events occurred.  It was like someone was flipping through a book -- all sorts of life events, big and small, good and bad -- and then I heard a voice say "Everything's all right."  I reached the end of the tunnel and entered a field of light.  As I looked ahead, I could see my Dad, who had been deceased four years.  He was smiling at me, and he looked like he had just come home from work.  He had on suit pants and a long-sleeved white dress shirt with the cuffs rolled up.  The light was very, very bright. White but not white, yellow but not yellow. (I still search the sky for that color!)  I wanted to reach my father.  As I drew close to him, I even smelled his cologne.
NDE due to disseminated intravascular coagulation and hemorrhage.

3571. Anne R FDE  1/27/14  And then after a while, I just felt that me and my sister were spinning around and suddenly I felt different. it was surreal. It was like I'm at peace. I can see the water bubbling and I saw many white lights around us. I felt that I can breath inside the water. I don't feel terrified anymore.
Fear-death experience due to near drowning at age 15 in the Philippines.

3570. Melissa NDE  1/27/14 I was sitting in the dirt watching my dad make a horse for me out of wood. I was so excited at the thought that I was going to have a pony that I squeezed my dog with a tight hug and it turned to bite me in the face. my first memory of the OBE was my seeing my father lifting me over the fence to hand me to the neighbor on the other side telling my mom to get the dog away. I heard screams and saw my mom dragging the dog to the back yard and my sister and brother calling the police I remember telling them without speaking to be calm. It was my sister who was actually talking on the phone.
NDE following dog bite on face at age 3.

3569. Concetta S NDE  1/25/14 From Italy.  Original in Italian, translated to English by Fran.  A little later, a blinding light showed up to my right. It, very firmly and with authority, ordered me not to turn around (with no words .. I did not need words to hear it). The light ordered me not to turn around because "it was not a place that I had to see."
NDE during an operation.

3568. Angelo G Probable NDE  1/24/14 From Romania.  Original in Italian, translated to English by Fran.  This extraordinary experience started when I suddenly and totally felt into a big Peace, I even felt very Present and with a huge Awareness (similar to deep meditation) and I was surrounded, like in a hug, by a huge-indescribable LOVE, that made me feel in total Happiness, it was like a 'Fatherly Love' and I felt so Safe and full of Joy by its extraordinary presence, never lived before.  I was traveling, flying, above all creation and I was speaking with My Father, Our Father, as we have been keeping our conversation for ever, and he was leading me and addressing to me with deep, warm voice, and I was feeling, all over myself, his Huge Fatherly Love. 
Probable NDE - The experience happened over a period of 5 days so it is hard to correlate the experience with time of death.

567. Juan Pablo NDE 
1/20/14 From Mexico.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana.   When I arrived at the hospital, they injected me 800 units of penicillin, which provoked the shutdown of my hearing and throat. Some time later, they laid me on a stretcher where I saw a cousin of mine who I told her to call all my friends to say good bye to them.  Instantly I lost my sight and was deaf, I began to listen to the Act of Constriction, which I hadn’t learn when I was in my catechism lessons, but at that moment I knew it all.  At the same time I began to feel such a peaceful feeling that I had never felt before, and saw a child taking me by his hand to a place where a lot of people were welcoming me, a very nice place, I did not want to come back, I was so happy, but something pulled me back and I awoke.
NDE from an allergic reaction.

3566. Laurence D NDE  1/20/14 From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.   My sight changed to 360°. All was black; I was completely alone. It seemed that I had no body anymore. But I was still there, more aware than ever. Then I thought (it imposed on me like an evidence) that this blackness was infinite, timeless (no beginning, no end) and that I was submerged inside for ever, in total solitude.  The time like we feel it in our body, strangely wasn't existing anymore. Understanding this, I felt an extraordinary flash of fear/ panic/ anguish coming over  me. I went from a feeling of fear to an indescribable panic.  Never before had I felt such anguish, and yet at this time, when I had not yet done my soul-searching, it happened to me to be very often worried. In this blackness the flash of fear was so strong that I perfectly understood, that if this fear would last for a longer time I would very soon start going crazy.  At this moment the black immensity of loneliness and timelessness vanished, and immediately I was back in my body. A man was slapping me, I was lying at the floor. At no moment I felt that I fell. At no time did I loose conscience, I simply came back and I felt like hugging this man  who,  without knowing it, took me out of an infinite anguish.
Distressing NDE from going unconscious.

3565. Huet Possible NDE  1/20/14 From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.  During, sensation of violence, struggle and intense light
Possible NDE but the experience was too fragmentary to tell for sure.

3564. Dennis F Possible NDE  1/19/14  Their description of total peace and comfort is what I also felt. I didn't see a spirit. I knew the spirit was with me and it made me feel completely comfortable in my surroundings. I was completely enveloped by the feeling of absolute peace and tranquility. I also had as they described a feeling of total love. I felt the spirit. I felt surrounded by its presence.  The scene that was unfolding in front of me was brilliant swirling of very intense colors. The background was HD brilliant Blue. The most vibrant Blue I've ever seen.  I started to make out forms coming together. The first form I recognized was my Father. He was smiling at me with a look of total understanding. He was holding the hand of a little boy. I recognized him as my brother who died when he was 2.
Possible NDE associated with brachytherapy treatment for prostate cancer.

3563. Martin S Possible NDE  1/19/14  From the UK.  I saw by the LCD display clock that the news was due to start and decided to try and remember as much as I could and then try and get back in the body upstairs.  I must reiterate at this point that there were NO feelings that were negative in anyway and I am not sure while in that state I could have even conceived what a negative thought was it was an alien concept as I say whereas this was peace, bliss and contentment like I had never known in this life. I love my wife, children and family with all my heart but this plane of existence was different we don’t even have a name for the feeling I experienced in human terms.  I remembered key words and phrases which I felt was important and as the news ended I thought how do I get back to my body and without knowing how I was already sitting back where I had started… It was nearly time for the news and I quickly wrote down all I could remember. Sure enough again and again - one after another we ticked what I had written down as the news reporter read out the headlines which amounted to 100% correct.
Possible NDE, with remarkable verification of OBE experience.

3562. Harris B NDE  1/19/14 I then had an out of body experience, hovering above while observing the attempts to resuscitate.  I heard them discussing that they couldn't get a pulse and communicating with the hospital by radio.  It was dark above and very calm, peaceful.  I had no fear of dying but realized that I was dying.  I remember thinking to myself, chuckling "I can't believe I'm gonna die from a bee sting" and then, while not seeing a presence, sensing one, and having a one-sided conversation, "I know that this is your call, but I'm not ready, with this young wife and family and I'm going to fight this."  It was completely quiet - I couldn't hear any of the voices trying to revive me.  Then, I heard this very loud "Whoosh" while feeling a quick downward thrust and reentering my body.
NDE from bee sting.

3561. Julie K NDE  1/19/14 It felt like a slide because I was sending me toward this void in the darkness of a glowing white light.  I think I was only unconscious for 30 seconds or so. Traveling quickly toward the light, I thought it was a crack under a doorway and I remember thinking "there's no way I'm going to fit through there".  Think of sitting in a dark room with the room next to you having the light on.  This is similar to what I was barreling toward, only it was a long rectangular shaped box of light in the middle of complete darkness.  Just as I was to enter the lighted void, I went under the doorway (to speak) and into an instant state of euphoria.  It was like "ahhhhh, this is nice".  It was as if all my senses were pleased beyond normal... when I hit the light it was an emotion of 'elation', 'happiness', 'worry free' and complete comfort that goes beyond any words I have… almost a complete all over orgasmic experience.
NDE due to car crash.

3560. Walter N NDE  1/19/14 I had passed out at home. I was told that I had been "coded", and that my body functions were shutting down. While I was gone from my body, I was walking toward a brilliant light. It was brighter than anything that I had ever seen. As I kept going toward it, it kept going farther and farther away. I was so calm and peaceful. I knew that I wanted to be where the light was. I awoke five days later, and I was both peaceful and calm. I was not nervous being in the hospital. I was told that I had been "out" for five days… The path I was on had beautiful trees on each side, and beautiful red bricks and water flowing on either side.
NDE due to illness.

3559. Terry B NDE 7066  1/19/14  Suddenly, I was floating vertically around a magnificent cone-shape light.  I was drawn towards it and I could see myself moving closer to it.  The voice of my grandmother, would had passed over five years earlier, told me to stay out of the light. She was a Catholic, had never told a fib in her life , and I knew she would want me to be safe.  I saw her standing on the shore dressed as she always was.  She had on a dress, necklace, and earrings.  She was holding the hand of a little boy who was dressed for winter in a coat and cap.  I kept wondering who he was.  I thought that he was too little to be my brother Andy.  Again my grandmother said, "Stay out of the light."  With that, I paddled backwards away from the light.
NDE due to drowning.

3558. Donna J NDE  1/19/14  I was also aware how PEACEFUL everything was, and there was a brightness around me, and I had absolutely no sense of fear.  This “peace” I felt has stayed with me my whole life… The truth of that day was that I was face down in the water, just below the surface, with only my long, blond, sun-bleached hair floating on the surface of the water.
NDE due to drowning at age 5.

3557. Mark Possible NDE  1/19/14 As I  was electrified, I was engulfed by tunnels of jade and blue, like worm tunnels you see in time travel movies, Time seemed to stand still, I was connected to power for about 5 seconds I was told by witnesses around me at the time, but it felt more like 20 to 30 seconds. Many things were going through my head at the time and being connected to the power for only 5 seconds totally made no sense to me and still does not. There was no pain, I was transfixed by the beautiful colors around me. It then dawned on me that I was being electrified and tried to pull away.
Probable electrocution experience vs. possible NDE due to electrocution.

3556. Donald C NDE  1/19/14  After this my gram and him talked and she turned to me and said, "You have to go back." I think I even surprised myself when I said no, I wanted to stay here." At this point that gram said that would make my family very sad because they love me very much. I said no they don't and was told to look, and as I looked down through what I thought was a television I could see my sister and my brothers trying to revive me. My older sister was digging the mud out of my throat and nose. And I was surprised. I could hear her saying "Donnie breath, Donnie breath, please”, as she slapped my face. Then my gram bent down and while on one knee turned me around and looked me strait in the face. With her hands on my shoulders she said the words that would haunt me..."Donald you've got to go back, but remember... remember You Are Part of Something Very Important!"
Exceptional NDE due to fall from a tree at age 10.

3555. Lani K NDE  1/19/14  The next thing I remember was a feeling of floating and peace. I'm certain there was a lot of noise from the car crashing, but I didn't hear any of it. It seemed as though I was in a peaceful, dark tunnel. Upon the SUV stopping, I laid upside-down with my seat belt still on… as I flowed through the tunnel or whatever it was, it was the most calm and peaceful I'd been in my existence. I'm much closer to God now than ever as daily prayer helps to bring back to that place of peacefulness.
NDE due to auto accident.

3554. Eruera M NDE  1/5/14  I looked at the grass I could tell it was grass but there was an element present that had been missing for the short duration of my physical existence, that element was love. The grass was me and I was the grass, the grass was aware of me, and I had just become aware of the grass. Another example was when I looked around, when I say I looked around, it wasn't as if I turned and looked, because I was already looking, I looked around at the trees and made a conscious decision to look at the trees because there was an aura of warmth and care emanating from that direction. When I looked at the trees again they were aware of me, exuding from the trees was love and acceptance.
Exceptional NDE due to injury during rugby game at age 15.

3553. Gillian M NDE  1/5/14  My next recollection is being in a vast, seemingly endless, space filled with brilliant white light.  I recall no limits on perception - no binocular vision, but panoramic/spherical/360 - hard to describe.   I spent what  seemed like a long time - certainly not minutes, hours, or days.  More like weeks, months, eons.  Time was meaningless.  I was with a group of beings that I felt I had known for a very long time.   Seems like more than 12 and less than 25.   I have a vague recollection of having my Earthly experiences ""downloaded"", and having a great reunion with these beings, and a great period of relaxation/recuperation.   Communication was non-verbal and instantaneous.  It involved relaying entire occurrences, concepts, and events with associated emotions, not just words and sentences.  Eventually a consensus was reached that I should return to the the life I had left as it was unfinished.  I don't recall how I appeared, but recall how the other beings appeared as I departed from them - Brilliant jewel bright points of scintillating light.
NDE due to cardiac arrest in a physician.  Extensive and interesting discussion about the NDE.

3552. Wynne B Probable NDE  1/5/14  I was in a place that was as vast as the ocean except it was not really a place. It was like sound waves coated in gold, a place made of only vibrations, like the sea I could drift on them only it felt like I was floating through a time and space that did not exist, I was weightless. Everything vibrated, there was no space or time as I know it to be only an endlessness of golden laced vibration. I wish I could remember more or explain it better but this is all I can remember. It was only several years ago that I told my Mother of this experience and she informed me that on that day they almost lost me. What she recounted was that the dentist had  informed her that he had given me too much gas and that he feared I would not wake up.
Probable NDE during dental procedure with apparent nitrous oxide at age 6.

3551. Lizzy L FDE  1/5/14  Suddenly, nothing in this world meant anything to me.  It was not that care, but rather, I no long believed I belonged to the earth.  I was leaving it, but just then, I as the kayak man came along.  He called to come to him and then indicated that I should swim to the shore, all of which I did.  I had not realized it at all.  I was no longer in the strong current.  I could have swam out and saved myself, but then, I did not know this... Only that the thoughts and feeling that I felt just prior to being rescued meant more to me than they ever could to anyone else.
Fear-death experience from near drowning.
