2922.  Jill D NDE English expanded version 12/31/11 When I stepped into the liquid, all that was "Jill" disappeared.  "I" no longer existed - and yet, "I" was still there.  I was the essence of life, I guess.  I don't know what else to call it.  I was conscious of my surroundings -- I had joined with all the other consciousness in the pool and had become one with it.  I "knew" all other life in the pool; I was "one with everything.  I was home.  My personal identity disappeared but my essence continued to exist.  This wasn't frightening at all, however.  Instead, it felt like I was truly myself, like when I get out of a shower, after having cleaned myself off.
NDE due to motorcycle accident.

2921.  Karen J NDE English expanded version 12/31/11 happen... a million thoughts at once and each clearly experienced. I thought about how strange it was that the cold didn't bother me, I was wowed by how strong the water was (until I couldn't feel it anymore).  I felt the absolute peace of everything feeling perfect.  I thought about everything that had ever happened in my life, but not distinct thoughts, just a sense that I was aware of everything that has happened... I thought many different things at once and was able to instantly comprehend.  My consciousness was not constrained by anything physical, just infinite thought and wisdom with no time.
NDE due to near drowning at age 10.

2920.  Debbie B NDE 6149 English expanded version 12/31/11 From the UK.   I recall my blood pressure being taken and that they were concerned because it had dropped considerably. I then lost consciousness and was out for a couple of hours. During that time I had a beautiful vivid "dream" that I was in a beautiful colorful flower garden with blue sky and sunshine standing on a gravel path and in front of me was my mother looking about 20 years younger as clear as day! All she said to me was "I'm okay now and you're going to be fine" the fact that I was unaware that my mum had died at that exact time until 2 days afterwards more that proves that it was real to me.
NDE due to post-operative infectious complication.  Met mother who had died at the same time of her experience before she was aware that her mother had died.

2919.  Bella K NDE English expanded version 12/31/11 all I can remember is music kind of in the back ground and i will tell you almost like notes within notes. The song that reminds me of it the most is "the carol of the Bells." I remember feeling very much a peace and I was sitting at a very plain wooden table and there was white all around other than the man who was Jesus who sat next to me. I remember feeling a sense of total love. There was no judgment, only pure love and I felt so good in his presence. I remember we were talking without using words. I would look into his eyes and find all the answers I was searching for.
NDE due to carbon monoxide poisoning.

2918.  Kelly L NDE English expanded version 12/31/11 I went to a clinic that was paying for "healthy" (non-smoking etc.) blood to give to cancer patients.  The "nurse" (wanna-be phlebotomist) could not find my vein after digging for what seemed like a very long time.  Apparently I went into shock and convulsed instead of passing out.  They kept me standing up rather than putting me in a prone position. I looked down from what seemed like a height of possibly 20 or so feet and saw the "nurses" holding me upright.  I "came back" shaking my head saying, NO.
NDE due to passing out during blood donation.

2917.  Maria S Possible NDE English expanded version 12/31/11  I start hearing an "electrical" buzzing sound and begin to feel heavy as lead.. at this point I know there is no turning back, because this sound along with feeling heavy as lead has always preceded previous out of body experiences. I think to myself ,Oh no here you go again, you shouldn't be doing this. Then I am ,without even any sensation of coming out of my body ,I am floating in a gray mist. This grey mist is a neutral zone ,as much as I could tell . My form is now spherical with a small sphere on top which is my head. This sphere (that I am) is made of soft grayish blue light. I'm just floating there in a grey mist, thinking now what, and will I be able to get back?
Possible NDE from sleep apnea.

2916.  Camryn L NDE English expanded version 12/30/11  I was losing too much blood to remain conscious and I was too light headed to comprehend how dangerous my situation was� I was bathed in bliss and harmony, I felt more love than I could even imagine and every thing emanated positive energy, affection, every single positive word in the dictionary could not capture the feeling of eternal bliss that I felt.  I then thought about music and I was instantly in an enormous concert hall and I was like an air particle in this beautiful theater and my (dead) Uncle Sydney was playing the piano with Arthur Rubenstein and Leonard Bernstein and my uncle looked up at me and smiled and winked.  he looked SO happy and content and I was really happy to see him playing because that is what he always loved to do the most and he looked so vibrant, not like he did when he died.  I then thought about otters and suddenly I was swimming with otters, but I wasn't wet or cold.  I remember thinking I should be cold and wet, but I wasn't.  The otters were very playful with me and kind of helped me swim with them.  They kept looking back at me to see if I was keeping up with them.
Exceptional NDE due to blood loss with remarkably transcendent experiences.

2915.  Paul S  NDE English expanded version 12/30/11 From Canada My next realization was the strangest one yet! All through this entire process, I became aware of being conscious outside of what I consider the boundaries of the physical body. My eye vision; if we can call it that, out of the sensation of seeing, I was probably about 12 feet away at a 45 degree angle from where my body was lying on the floor. I could clearly see my wife Jennifer and her sister Sharon and I believe it was my sister in-law's; sister in-law Joanne who was also present at that time. I remember too that I (my essence of conscious self) was floating above and away, from where my physical body was laying on the living room floor. Yet I clearly remember that my consciousness which was not within the boundaries of my physical body. It was a lucid sensation of being able to see at a 360� all around from wherever situated while my consciousness was situated next to the ceiling - I recall feeling the presence of a loving spiritual-entity.
NDE due to pulmonary embolus.

2914.  Rhonda C NDE English expanded version 12/30/11  I was in a tunnel, Not dark, but not bright. just comforting. I had the most incredible emotions. they seemed to be centered in what I have heard called the solar plexus. The was the most incredible mixture of peace, joy, love, acceptance...so strong I still cry thinking about it.  I seemed to be able to talk in my head without words. I asked if I was done.  I seemed to just know that life on this plane at this time was only a part of my existence.  And God answered back...It is your choice. You may come with me, or go back.  I truly felt this was my choice and we were having this dialogue in my head. I could hear his voice as clear as anyone who speaks to me out loud. I told him I felt I needed to go back, that I didn't feel I had accomplished what I had set out to do. And I felt emotions of kind acceptance. not judgment.
NDE due to surgical complications and respiratory arrest after surgery.

2913.  Kirat A  NDE English expanded version 12/30/11  From India  During my experience, I could see my dad, my uncle (both docs.) and my surgeon all looking extremely worried. Yes my father told me that they all thought for a moment that they lost me� Next thing I could remember was me observing the operation from the ceiling. I could have a comfortable top view of the surgery. I could see my dad who was inside the operation theater.  I could see the surgeon and the nurse standing on the left of me. Suddenly I went up higher and felt extreme happiness and peace which I had never ever experienced. It was divine. I suddenly started falling back in a deep dark tunnel. With my falling in the tunnel, few past events of the life were visible to me and they went past me in a fraction of a second.  Next thing I remember was waking up in the ward of the hospital.

2911.  Harold R NDE English expanded version 12/30/11  After going in the lake, I found myself surrounded by vague images that I couldn't make out but they were in front of a bright light that was coming from all directions. There was a feeling of great love coming from all of them with an overwhelming feeling of love surrounding and behind them. The love I felt seemed to be the love of a grandmother, coming from each of them. After experiencing this feeling of love for a while, I was told it wasn't my time and I needed to go back but they would see me again in the future.
NDE due to drowning.  Shared 51 years later.

2910.  Keith J & Pat's Second Person NDE English expanded version 12/30/11  Keith "negotiated" with God...stating, and I quote..."I have found love for the first time" -- and it was this statement that caused (Keith thought) for The Divine to reconsider and send Keith back to his Earthly existence.  Love...Keith's love for me and our bond together.  The unshakeable.  Our bond was not "of this world" and remains that way for me, even after I lost Keith �the security guard came over and said, "Are you Kim?".  I replied "yes", she sighed, and said, "I have a story for you; will you listen?".  Keith and I became quiet...and she sat down in the chair adjacent to me.  "Pat" explained that she had been in a medical coma two years prior, as a result of a "scarlet fever" type of illness.  She had been discovered unconscious by a neighbor, and brought to the hospital.  While in this coma - "in this Other Place", she was shown my face only, given my name as "Kim" and told to "find Kim".  And, so we had found each other; but we didn't have the answers because we didn't have the questions.
Wife (Kim) of Keith tells of his NDE due to heart attack.  Later Kim met a security guard (Pat) in Atlantic City who told Kim that she had an NDE and was told to "find Kim" and shown Kim's face.  If Pat reads this, please email NDERF.

2909.  Paula Y Probable  NDE English expanded version 12/30/11 I was in a park and my deceased cat Amigo came running towards me and jumped into my arms. I recognized him instantly. I held him and hugged him. I was so happy to see him. I was smiling and extremely happy. He was happy to see me as well. He was rubbing his cheek against my face over and over. I kept squeezing him and feeling his fur. I was soooo happy to see him again. Then he jumped out of my arms and walked over to a park bench. There were people around, but no one stood out. I watched Amigo jump on to the park bench and curl up next to an old man. I realize the old man is my deceased grandfather.

2908.  Glenn F NDE English expanded version 12/30/11  out of the darkness behind me I heard my father call to me. (he passed away 10 years ago at the age of 76.) I was looking toward where I heard his voice and then all of a sudden there was light everywhere. and there he was!! smiling and looking like I remember him when I was young.  now he was a man in his thirties and I was old. this light and seeing him ,and talking to him was  so comforting . I never in my life felt so content.  I had a feeling of total peace like nothing I've ever experienced. we were weightless just myself and him in this magnificent light. I remember the air was so clean. and I felt light as a feather. my father and I talked, we laughed, it felt so good to see him. he was young and healthy. I remember he had his legs again! (he lost both legs to Diabetes before passing.)
NDE due to cardiac arrest under anesthesia.

2907.  Glenda G Possible  NDE English expanded version 12/30/11 But there were three steps that led up to a platform of sorts, and there was a door across from the steps.  I instinctively knew that every person and every animal I have ever loved in my life was alive and well beyond that door.  They were all waiting for me.  Now I understood everything. This was my mansion that Jesus speaks about in John 14: 1-3 which also happens to be my favorite verse in the Gospel.  It assured me that there would be a place for me in heaven.  I was here.  This place was mine. It was being built and personalized just for me.  I can't even describe the overwhelming joy I felt, or the atmosphere of love and acceptance I was surrounded by. I wanted to stay; and they were telling me that I could. I was loved. I was a part of this amazing place.
OBE vs. NDE.  Was physically compromised several days after surgery.  Quite NDE-like experience.

2906.  Ahmed B Possible  NDE English expanded version 12/29/11 From Iraq.  Original in Arabic, translated by Bahjat. I woke up and saw my neck and my head were raising floating of my body, slowly I felt that I was going out of my body, the separation started from my feet.  New feet came out of body, then other parts of my body followed the new feet. My face left the old body with shining light and was colored as gold.  It sounded like bubbles in a soft drink.  I looked at the old body and I said to myself, "it�s belong to another man, I hated it." Suddenly I float fast the faster and faster. I went through black tunnel.  My sense of hearing became so strong I heard my neighbors talking in their house.  I flew around the room very fast, weightless, with twenty eyes.  The time was different. 
My heart goes out Ahmed for going through the dark night of the soul.

2905.  Lars N  NDE English expanded version 12/26/11 From Germany.  Original in German, translated by Anja. I don�t know what, nor how it happened. Suddenly I was above the pool at the height of the 10 meter (30 feet) dive board, although I was far away from the board in mid air. In this moment I felt a single feeling, which is best described as a feeling of complete contentment and joy. The best feeling I have experienced in my entire life. I looked around and saw the leaves rock in the wind, birds were flying through the air, and I saw the sky above and the many people below.

2904.  Darlene L  NDE English expanded version 12/21/11 From Finland.  Original in Finnish, translated by Azure. 1979, I went to a health center because of stomach aches.  After three hours of waiting I was taken to be operated immediately. I glided through a tunnel towards light, and when I was about to reach the end of the tunnel, I saw a hand which stopped my advance. I was told: "It is not yet your time, go back!" I cried all the way back because of the sadness [of not being taken into the light], and I jumped up on the operating table where I was being resuscitated.   
Two NDEs.

2903.  Kaleen NDE English expanded version 12/17/11  I was in an vast open field, where there  were people all around.  I couldn't see them but sensed their presence in my periphery. The sky was the most vivid blue I had ever seen, the grass was the most amazing color of green and appeared to be alive, it was swaying, although there was no breeze. The clouds in the sky were the softest, puffiest white down. The colors were almost indescribable.  I felt the strongest sense of love, like someone had taken a warm blanket and swaddled me in love.  I looked ahead and saw 2 people running towards  me,  waving frantically hello, like they couldn't wait to reach me,  I was running towards them with the purest sense of joy. As they got closer, I recognized them as my Maternal grandparents, both of whom passed away before I was 4 years of age.  I have very few memories of them in life.  When we reached each other we embraced and jumped up and down laughing and twirling around with excitement.  There was so much joy, no words but the feeling of love and joy in the purest form was intoxicating.
NDE due to passing out after donating blood.

2902.  Ellie P NDE English expanded version 12/17/11 From Wales, UK.  I was lying there watching all of this & wondering "why isn't anyone coming to get me?" when i saw my mother walk forward to the side of the bed.  When she was alongside me I could see from the corner of my eye that she had tears streaming down her face. I thought "why is she crying?", but as I turned my head my brother came forward & dragged her back out of my sight. That was when I realized that I wasn't going with them to the Spirit World i.e. I wasn't going to die.
NDE with some atypical features.

2901.  Cami R NDE English expanded version 12/17/11  Direct head injury  Other: AFTER the initial life-threatening trauma, days later in the hospital during a period of laser-focus on the breath for hours over days was when the greatest shifts occurred - I drifted off between breaths into much deeper states of consciousness than I had reached during the NDE itself.  This state seemed to seep in during a long period of time rather than in one swoop as the initial NDE had apparently happened� Between breaths, I simply slipped from one form of consciousness into a much more spacious and connected and powerful one. From this state I felt honored to keep the body breathing and endure this particular blazing burden. It wasn't suffering, it was fuel. I was filled with the sheer joy and gratitude of experiencing this particular delicious incarnation, this body and personality. This joy of Self has returned over and over through the years, at times gracing me with a sense of being blessed at every pleasure and pain of being in the flesh. I believe now that this space of being is our birthright and available in any life, once we let go of our definitions and expectations about what we are.
NDE, but predominant experience happened a few days later during meditation-like state.  Very enthusiastic about her experiences and really did some writing - so just know that this is a longer experience than most.

2900.  Nicole M Probable NDE English expanded version 12/13/11  From France. Original in French.  Translated to English by Magalie.  Suddenly I felt myself leave in a dark tunnel marked with bluish hues and at the end of it, I could see a very attractive light. There was no more pain, no physical appearance, no mental anguish� only unconditional love and my father, who has been dead for 28 years, was there. He took my left hand and welcomed me. I did not see myself dead; only happiness, no more suffering and on top of that, I was with my father� I wanted to go further and through the door but my father sent me back to terrestrial life without giving me any time to argue. He said goodbye, which wouldn�t have been possible at the time.
Probable NDE from taking medicine for rheumatoid arthritis.

2899.  Lieselotte S NDE English expanded version 12/11/11 From Canada. I was in the room, but not in the bed.  I saw an intense white light and heard a pleasant classical music associated with the light surrounded by an agreeable atmosphere.  It was a pleasant experience.  Afterwards, I felt that I did not fear death anymore (though that fear returned later as my cancer had not be cured).
NDE during coma after surgery.

2898.  Sandy D NDE English expanded version 12/11/11 I found myself in a field in compete darkness. Heartbroken I felt my soul shatter like glass and the shards scattered across the grass. I was in a clearing surrounded by tall grass. big flat rocks were in the clearing Boulders, but mostly flush with the ground. I laid down and felt the sharp rocks (and when I woke there were scratches and bruises) I asked God to take me I was in such emotional pain. I heard rustling through the grass and knew it was not God coming for me, something else was. I closed my eyes in fear and when I opened them a huge deer was standing over me. So close I reached up and the deer brought its nose to my hand. At that moment I watched a movie of my life. Every tiny detail.  So quickly it passed but it took forever. I saw everything I had done right, every wrong, how each of those actions affected others and I saw when I should have done things and didn't. Those were the worst I understood. Then just like that I knew I was forgiven.
NDE due to drug overdose.

2897.  Paige M NDE English expanded version 12/11/11 The first thing I remember is floating above myself and looking down and seeing my body face-down in a snow bank under a tree. I had been wearing a a wool pea coat and a thick Carhartt jacket over it, as well as snowmobiling pants and thick winter boots but I felt free as I floated looking down. I had no worries or really any thoughts. I heard a sudden scream and saw my best friends rush to my limp body and roll me over. Suddenly I was aware that I was not breathing and began to panic. I remember seeing a blinding bright light but I turned away because I was trying to breathe. Everything was so bright and vivid I remember it even now.

Karen NDE 6120
English expanded version 12/11/11 I was somewhere I knew and it was where I belonged. I was VERY HAPPY.  I then saw someone walking toward me from the left. I recognized the male figure and we both laughed when we first looked at each other. I had the sensation that he was as happy to see me, as I was to see him. We talked and from what I can remember discussed that this was where I was from and that I was home. I can not describe the feeling. Joy, elation, happiness no words that I know can describe it. Everything made perfect sense!
NDE due to illness with sepsis.  Contributor is a nurse.

2895.  Shannon T NDE English expanded version 12/11/11 From Canada.  I was in total bliss and awe that I was still alive but in another place! I all of a sudden just knew what I knew all along, that life does go on but in another time and place! I know that I was on the verge of reaching a light, but that I had to travel through the darkness of my own soul and that it wouldn't be long in the dark and to just enjoy my time there until I end up in the next place or until I catch another life.
NDE due to surgical contribution.  Contributor is Muslim.

2894.  Pedro J NDE English expanded version 12/8/11 From Chile.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Petrov.  It was precisely in that moment, when I am transported to a dark place, defined later by myself as a universe where nothing existed, all I saw was an absolutely black, dark place, with no references, but where my mind did exist, at least that's how I define it nowadays.  I was attempting to look at my body, but it did not exist as I had known it, but I did think, therefore it was thought, don't know if brain or soul, but it was something indeed, undefined but a something.  In said circumstances, and after traversing that dark abyss, I find myself flying as if I were a bird, which seemed to me was an eagle, and said flight took me over hills and places of great greenery. I was asking myself what was that, even when I felt that the answer was of no importance.
NDE from getting shot.

2893.  Ray B NDE English expanded version 12/7/11 Transcribed by Elaine.  Then Jesus came towards him with pure LOVE and Ray realized that religion is real!  Together, he and Jesus moved through the heavens, like clouds.  They stopped in front of Mary and light came from her hands and he told her how much he loved her.  They started moving through the heavens again, stopped, and God appeared in front of him.  He felt that God was looking through him and knew everything he was thinking.  Ray had a life review while standing in front of God.  Ray was looking down and seeing different parts of his life and God was showing him how he forgave him for all the bad things he had done in his life.  During the life review, he also saw his own future. 
NDE from drug overdose.

2892.  John M NDE E112811 English expanded version 11/29/11 As we approached an intersection I had the feeling that I was fading away (that's the best I can describe it). I knew then that there was something very wrong. I arrived at the intersection just when the light turned red and heard a voice say that I was dying. I put the car into park, shut off the engine and collapsed in my wife's arms. The voice again said "you are dying, this is how it feels".

NDE from cardiac arrest.

2891.  Ana R NDE English expanded version 11/27/11 I felt as if I was being pulled down and remember hearing screeching like nails being scratched on a chalkboard.  My teeth clenched and the fear I felt was overwhelming.  In my mind, this was permanent and it was hell.  The next thing I remember is looking up and seeing a cross with great light around it.  I never saw any beings or anything, but I heard a voice say "I am not finished with her yet"...talking about me like if I wasn't there.
Frightening NDE due to severe infection following delivery.

2890.  Brent M NDE English expanded version 11/27/11 I chose not to push my luck and opted for the here and now.  When my decision was made I resumed life back in my body.  An ambulance arrived.  I rose from the pavement and walked to the gurney.  Amazed eyes followed trip with disbelief.  I believe one was a priest who had administered last rites.
NDE due to car accident.

And if the guy decided to cut, my GI Joe sized soul was just going to jump out the hole.  Does that make sense? Sounds crazy now, doesn't it.  It was like I wanted to just get away from there so bad that getting away from the horror of the murder was the last, um, choice? The last free choice I would make.

2886.  Stephen M NDE English expanded version 11/27/11 From the U.K.  I remember seeing a doctor run up to me with what I can only describe as a syringe in his raised hand, and just as my eyes closed, he brought that syringe down and into my chest. Then it was darkness again. I have no idea of time scale here, but I remember opening my eyes again, and had this really strange feeling that I wasn't laid in the usual horizontal position, but more of a vertical one. I felt 'upside down', in the sense that my feet were up on the ceiling, and my head towards the floor. As I slowly turned my head right, the left, I was actually looking at the top of the nurses heads as they walked around. I called out, in a quiet and calm tone, yet I don't remember my lips moving, I said these exact words.. " What's happening? Where am I? Everything's changed." I saw no one look at me, yet I heard a female voice reply, "It's alright. Everything's going to be alright."

I wasn't scared in fact when I looked behind me I saw a playground with lots of kids playing, the flowers and grass colors were so vivid and pretty. I wanted so bad to play on the playground, but the girl next to me said I wasn't allowed just yet� I do remember hearing a doctor say get her back, get her back. Didn't know what that meant till I got older.

I didn't feel sorry for my dad or particularly want to go back. The woman holding my hand told me I had to get into my body.  I said I was scared that I didn't know how to do it.  She said go down now� After a tonsillectomy I suffered a blood clot and was rushed back to surgery for a complete blood transfusion.  My heart stopped and I was resuscitated� The nurses confirmed the layout of the operating theatre were what I described.

2883.  Kyle M NDE English expanded version 11/19/11  I started traveling fast towards something, and, real or not, I think it was hell. I saw a dark, rugged, rocky landscape with tall, jagged rocks sticking up all over.  In the distance, there was a giant orange glow with dark streaks going up.

Nothing like this had ever happened to me before.

2882.  Benny M Probable NDE English expanded version 11/19/11  I was ten. I was at the beach. A huge wave hit me and pulled me out of the water.  Calm, and I understand what eternity fells like. There were no walls or boundaries.  The black space I was in was a way to travel to the Light.
Probable NDE due to drowning at age 10.

2881.  Stephen I Experiences English expanded version 11/19/11  I came into work the next morning and noticed he wasn't in his bed. I was informed that he was in the ICU (intensive care unit). They had had a heart attack. They coded him 3 times (coded is when the heart stops and they have to shock them to bring them back). His family didn't want to let him go so they would not sign a "do not resuscitate" order. They made 3 attempts to bring him back and he and I did 3 "pulls" in our tug of war in my dream! He survived.  Two remarkable shared death experience dreams from a nurse with his patient.  One day, a couple of weeks before she passed, she was chatting away with this unseen child. I asked her to ask him what his name was. She turned her head away from me and said in the direction of the little boy, "What's your name?" I asked her if he answered her and she said, He said his name is Lolo. I broke out in a sweat.

2880.  John R NDE English expanded version 11/17/11  Immediately upon beginning to roll I thought, 'oh, now I am going to watch myself die.  I knew I could not possibly survive the fall that was about to take place.  I was very calm, firmly gripping the wheel as the truck rolled. The moment I made that statement I felt the presence of something very new and unique in my experience.  It was as if somebody had come up behind me and wrapped a protective cloak around me (or a pair of angelic wings), completely enveloping me in a loving embrace.  I felt no fear through out the experience, but rather, the most opposite occurred.  I was awash in LOVE.
NDE due to truck accident, and several other experiences described.

2879.  Brad M Probable NDE English expanded version 11/17/11  Suddenly an angel appeared, large. He spoke to my mind, and I could understand, just like an adult. He ask me if I wanted to leave or to stay.  I felt very powerful in his presence, like nothing was going to harm me and anything I said would be all right. I no longer feared or felt death. His words were understood fully and completely without any words. I had seen myself before I was sent here, yes, I remembered a previous conversation while picking my parents  and "Wealthy or poor," I told the angel, "I didn't want to bail out. I would stay."
Probable NDE at age 3 due to illness.

2878.  Jack S Probable NDE English expanded version 11/17/11   I walked into my living room and collapsed against the dining room wall. While falling, I hit my head on the kitchen counter and then again on the wall. This knocked me out, and my body, from my shoulder to my elbow, was stuck, jammed against the wall, until I came to.  At that point, I pushed and slid myself down to the floor, where I lay flat on my back. The room was pitch black. The next thing I recall is seeing an extreme bright white light directly above me. I started thinking, "There's no light above me in this room where I'm lying." Then I realized that I was no longer sweating and felt totally at peace. I lay there for a few minutes, just looking at the light. Then it hit me that I was dying. I said to myself, "This cannot be f---ing happening. I have a six month old son that needs me." The light disappeared. 
Probable NDE due to fall with head injury.

2877.  Yolanda H NDE English expanded version 11/17/11  I saw white clouds all over.  I looked up to sky an there were more clouds.  I didn't see God but I had faith he was there and I knew I was dead.  I saw a shadow of a thin tall man looking down at me from the cloud, this man was walking on the cloud. I started to beg God to let me live.  I said, "God please let me live, if I die my mom and my brothers are going to cry a lot for me, God please let me live I don't want to die right now, I'm too young, I want to grow up get married and have children, after that, you can take me but not now" I said this many times over and over.
NDE at age 7 due to being hit by a car.

2876.  Tom S Probable NDE English expanded version 11/12/11  From Canada  I was suddenly in front of a great Light. It had to have been God! It was so powerful, no words can describe it. The closest I can come is to say it was like being suddenly placed a few feet from the Sun - but instead of feeling heat, you feel LOVE.  Infinite Love. The Love emanated out in all directions in slow, gentle rays of light. Never can I forget it. Thirty years later, it's still mostly what I think about.  A vision of a man appeared down to the right of the powerful Light.  I presumed it was Jesus. He looked like he does in most paintings.  He was wearing a white robe and was extending his hands out to greet me. Behind me, I felt the whole world carrying on - past, present and future.
Probable NDE due to medically delivered overdose of narcotics. 

2875.  Alexandre B FDE English expanded version 11/4/11  From France, Original in French, translated to English by Jean Peter.  Swept away by a wave on a Corsican beach during about 20 seconds (supposed duration.) Saved by my father at the last second (just before swallowing sea water.) A series of scenes (between 10 or a dozen) about my short life flashed before my eyes. I did not see these scenes through my own eyes (me in my mother�s arms, or me in hospital for stomach pumping), but from �above� as if I were an observer. This experience lasted for a few seconds maybe, but back then I felt like it lasted for several minutes...
Fear Death Experience from drowning.

2874.  Maria GP Possible NDE English expanded version 10/29/11  From Spain, Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon.  It was a communication in the mind. The being stayed behind while I floated on, being pulled along by a wonderful river of lights. The river took a right turn, and I was in front of two enormous screens, depicting rounded forms made of constantly moving lights and colors.  I stood before them, feeling that I was required to understand the movement of those lights � similar to needing to figure out a password.  Leaving the screens behind, I found myself in darkness. At this point, the feeling of wisdom was enormous, and my heart was overflowing with love. I remembered Jesus, as if I were He. I turned towards the left, and there, at the end of a sort of tunnel, I saw a shining sphere. It spoke to me telepathically (I guess,) and said: "Not yet, you have to return and guide your family." 
Possible NDE from childbirth.

2873.  Rebecca B FDE English expanded version 10/29/2011 As I was rolling over and over I thought to myself - Is this how it ends? Is this it, you mean the end? This is the way I go? It is all over like this? Wow, I'm okay with me then, if this is it!  I remember feeling so at peace as things were obviously hitting me in the head which I do not remember anything touching me.  I remember opening my eyes and looking at the side airbags deploy and I closed my eyes again.  I felt an overwhelming calmness in my life that I have never felt and don't know that I would ever feel as long as I am here on this earth.  A certain stillness and comfort like no other.... And then all of the sudden the car lands on all four wheels, I open the door a little shaken and walked away from the car with minor glass infractions in my hand and a few bumps on the back of my head after being hit by objects in the car.

2872.  Christy H NDE English expanded version 10/29/2011 I remember waking up in a large field that was filled with grass and beautiful pink flowers.  The sky was so blue.  There were mountains in the background and a large forest on the other side of the field.  What I remember most is how warm I felt.  A very comfortable warmth like on a Spring or fall day when the weather is perfect and the sun is shining...like that.  Sitting next to me was a little girl.  We talked for a long time.  She was a daughter I lost to stillbirth several years ago.  I knew that's who she was and I felt happy to see her and talk to her. She was about 7 or 8 years old which is how old she would be now if she had lived.
NDE during surgery to hemorrhage after delivery.  Remarkable encounter with her own daughter who died as stillbirth eight years previously.

2871.  Sache P NDE English expanded version 10/29/2011 I was giving 8 antibiotics in a port in my neck, pain meds kept me in and out.....then I coded. At that moment I was suspended in darkness naked and cold, I could feel the presence of evil all around me. I kept trying to speak, but my mouth was sealed shut as my body was frozen no movement. I saw my wife reaching for me but she was going to the warm and comfortable direction. I woke up with a team bringing me back to life - there is HELL...therefore there must be heaven.
NDE due to cardiac arrest during severe infection.  Hellish experience.

2870.  Paula L NDE English expanded version 10/29/2011 I ended up in a violent relationship with the father of my children I have 4 children he was very violent I was in this situation for 17 years.  I finally got out when I did I had a hard time functioning as a result of this I tried to commit suicide when this happened I found myself astral projecting and then I could see a strong light the feeling I was having when I looked at the light was of complete love and happiness feeling I then when through the light I could see people at the end of the light that I new I new but I couldn't get close enough to know who they were I new I did not want to come back to earth I new I had died I then felt the pallets on my chest that they use in the hospital to re start your heart  I could hear someone in my left ear telling me I love you Paula you have to go back.
NDE due to suicide attempt.

2869.  Sue A Probable NDE English expanded version 10/29/2011 Then the next thing I remember was being somewhere "else" and I was in absolutely no pain.  It was kind of a weird void landscape almost as if it were foggy and yet it was light.  Then, I remember a wonderful kindly man who asked me to sit down and talk to him.  There was some sort of bench.  The man filled me with a sense of awe and I loved him.  He then proceeded to tell me something like - sounds hokey - the secrets of the universe and the meaning of my life past present and future that I was dead (which seemed fine to me)  and why I needed to go back.  It all made perfect sense.  I agreed that I had to go back and yet I didn't want to leave the man and the place and I cried and begged not to go back.
Possible NDE during delivery.

2868.  Jane K NDE English expanded version 10/29/2011  From Australia.  At some point during my experience of giving birth, I was aware that the atmosphere changed and there seemed to be a medical emergency. I could feel blood pooling in my chest (I was having a caesarean and the lower half of my body was paralyzed from the epidural anesthetic). All at once I felt the essence of myself/ the thinking part, separate from my body. My consciousness seemed to be heading somewhere. At that moment I heard my daughter cry and I willed myself to reenter my body. When this happened, I remember saying:  "Back down to Earth again!"� I was hemorrhaging massively during childbirth and the doctors and nurses were finding it hard to stop the blood flow.
NDE due to hemorrhage at childbirth. 

2867.  Lillith W NDE English expanded version 10/29/11  From Mexico, Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon.  Then I came to a place where the path ended and there was a trickle of water in the mud. I saw someone approaching, but I was not afraid. Gradually everything became lighter, a bit like day dawning, and I saw him far off, getting closer, it was my grandfather, dressed in white and coming towards me. When he got to me it was already sunny, and in the distance I could make out some people observing me, also a kind of house, or rather a church. He smiled at me and I smiled at him and asked him if he had come for me. He said no, that he was just there to talk with me, he said he was charged with telling me that it was still not my time, and I had to go back because I was needed, and that my questions would be answered in due course.
NDE from attempted suicide.

2866.  Thai Experiences English expanded version 10/29/11  From Thailand, Original in Thai, translated to English by Google.    I am posting two experiences that we received a while ago that were submitted in the Thai language.  Unfortunately, we don't have any Thai translators so I used Google translator.  It isn't good enough to understand the narrative well enough to determine if it is a NDE or not.  So, if anyone out there can translate Thai, it would be most appreciated to have the help.  Thanks, Jody ( )

2865.  Isabelle P NDE English expanded version 10/20/11  From France, Original in French, translated to English by Jean Peter.  I had two experiences, one when I was 15, during one of the many surgeries I underwent after a serious traffic accident, and later when I was 22, when I was giving birth to my daughter.  Both times, I clearly heard the surgeons talking to each other, saying, "We are losing her. It's over. We'll never be able to get her back.� And I saw them very clearly and tried to speak to them. Then I was gone very fast, as if I had been sucked into a very brightly lit corridor, where I seemed to be swimming through a white liquid toward a very intense light that I felt very attracted to.  I just wanted to go there so much.  I felt more and more "sucked," toward it, but then, just as abruptly, I sped backward very fast, away from the light.  I felt shaken in all directions, still with that sucking feeling. In both cases I awoke very quickly in the hospital recovery room.
NDEs due to surgical complications.

2864.  Tom K Probable NDE English expanded version 10/16/11 I was greeted by four guides on a well-worn path in a field of the most beautiful golden colors I had ever seen.  My guides appeared to be Mayan Indians. We all walked down the path together, with the leader out in front, and the others flanking me, either beside me, or in front and in back of me.   Although we spoke different languages, we all understood what the others were saying. I was told that there was nothing to worry about and that I should follow them on this path. The weather was perfect; the sky was the bluest blue I have ever seen, with scattered puffy white clouds. I don't remember what I was wearing, but I do know that everything felt perfect. I did encounter a friend of my son's, who had taken his life the year before. He was on the far side of the field, standing on a stone wall, on the other side of which was a very thick forest. He told me how sorry he was for what he had done, and asked me to come with him. My guides directed me to end my conversation with him, because it would be best for me to move on with them.
Probable NDE due to surgical complications.

2863.  Tish Z NDE English expanded version 10/16/11 As I walked further into the tunnel, I could see some cloudy figures, like indistinct shadows of people.  But then there was one that I just knew was my mother, who had passed.  I'm not sure how I knew it was her � it reminds me of when you suddenly smell something which vividly brings back a memory of the past.  I was an adult, but I could hear myself call her "Mommy."  She took my hand and led me to the edge of the tunnel and into the light; and I could see green rolling fields that seemed to go on forever, and a sky so blue.  The colors were like nothing that I had ever seen before.  There was this wonderful, overwhelming sense of peace. We talked, but without moving our mouths � without words. How to say this? We communicated through our thoughts.  She told me that it was not my time, and so I needed to go back. 
NDE due to allergic reaction and stroke.

2862.  Giuseppi C Possible NDE English expanded version 10/16/11 I recalled being in a dream state while under.  I recall being on a large promontory in the dark.  Way out in front of me was a light, not bright and not dim.  I then said: "Hello. (no answer)  Hello, anybody out there?  (no answer)  I then asked:  "Can anybody tell me the meaning of life?"  Then I received this EXACT ANSWER telepathically:  "Man has not even scratched the surface to know what life is all about."
Possible NDE around time of heart surgery.

2861.  Michael S NDE English expanded version 10/16/11 I remember waking up in an absolutely beautiful green field of grass.  When I awoke, I was laying on my back looking up into the sky.  The experience of "waking up" in this field of grass seemed entirely normal and natural, as if I had always been there and simply woke up from a nap.  The sky was a picture perfect day, clear and blue with a radiant sun.  As I raised my head up from the ground to look around, I saw my deceased dog from my childhood bounding towards me.  I remember exclaiming her name at the top of my lungs as I saw her bounding towards me.  It was absolutely wonderful.  I felt completely at peace, and totally happy.  I was so excited to see her again, and I did not question the experience at the time.  It was if she had never died and she had always been waiting for me to wake up from my nap in the grass.
NDE due to faint following medical injections and anxiety.

2860.  Alex A NDE 6036 English expanded version 10/16/11 I heard myself say, "Please help me, God." During that flashback, I saw two radiant orbs in the sky from which numerous, tall beings were rapidly descending and surrounding both our truck and the road in front of us, all the way to the hospital. A being that was taller than the rest was standing on the hospital roof and holding something in his hands, but what it was, I could not see. I saw the bright white light again and woke up in the ER triage room, surrounded by nurses, a physician and other medical staff. Later I was transferred out of triage to a regular ER room and my mother told me I had completely lost consciousness in the truck while having a fourth convulsion, and that I been brought back to life with shocks.
NDE associated with cancer, blood loss and seizure. Experience occurred about 2-3 weeks prior to submission.

2859.  John C Experience English expanded version 10/16/11 As I began to give in to my apparent fate I calmed to the point that I took more notice of what I was staring at. Obviously, there was the thing that was surrounding the cube. It was so arresting because it glowed with pure white light. Folks, I don't know much about what I saw, overall... but I can sure as shit tell you that this object was a halo, through and through. The white light was gentle on the eyes, yet resoundingly pervasive. As I stared at it, it dawned on me that I really couldn't say what a halo was supposed to be exactly. I found myself briefly relieved to be preoccupied with it. A few moments later I shifted my attention to the cube. It - or whatever was responsible for the speech - droned on as I scanned. There was something on the surface maybe here and there - like writing or something. It definitely seemed like writing but in small, confined areas, I think. The writing, unfortunately, was unrecognized. I found little time to think on it before the speech stopped.
Sleep Paralysis Experience

2858.  Pamela M NDE English expanded version 10/16/11 All of a sudden, air didn't matter and I began to fade away into this warm bright light. the light was so bright and comforting I wanted to stay forever the light didn't hurt my eyes but it was all you could see was the brightness of the light and you can feel your floating or rising in the light, when all of a sudden as if someone pressed rewind I was sucked down out the light and back into my body now I'm not afraid to die because what ever you are suffering from it stops when the white light comes and it's beautiful  :)
NDE due to criminal attack.

2857.  Anna L NDE English expanded version 10/16/11 From Argentina, Original in Spanish, translated to English by Simon A.  The Light resembled nothing I had ever seen, it was huge - I would even say infinite. Like a sun above the sea, it gleamed with every color. I could feel its warmth.  It seemed to have its own life, its own consciousness, and its own movement, and it seemed to be aware of me and to be communicating with me telepathically. I perceived the Light above the water as being part and parcel of "my" Light (that is to say, myself.)  But the surface of the water was like a wall which "separated" us from each other - although we were the same thing. Gazing at the Light, I was filled with energy, and my only thought was to reach it. I moved as fast as I could but I collided with something - an elastic wall of water.  I then started using all my strength to break through that wall of water � I wanted only to reach the Light.  Nothing else had any meaning, and I was thinking to myself, "No stupid wall is going to stop me from reaching my Light!"
NDE from allergic reaction to drugs.

2856.  Billur P NDE English expanded version 10/16/11 From Turkey, Original in Turkish, translated to English by Aylin.  I drowned.  I was in a dark place where  I was pushed and pulled. I had no thoughts, fear, pain, only that being pushed and pulled.  When I was reanimated, I felt dizzy and with an incredible speed I was pulled back to my body and I was conscious . The light was so strong I could not open my eyes but I could hear very good. 
Teenager drowning NDE.

2855.  Barbara W NDE E101211 English expanded version 10/15/11 & 11/7/12  I took in a small breath of water and it was not at all what I had expected it to feel like.  I thought I would have choked and gagged but instead I felt relief.  I opened my mouth and hungrily swallowed down more water.  It seemed the more water I swallowed the more peaceful I felt. The next thing I remember is looking up and seeing a bright white light coming out of the center of my chest going upward toward the surface of the water top.  I was now looking down at my lifeless body feeling no pain or attachment to it.  I looked like a mannequin with my blond hair fanned out around my head.  My arms were floating in a relaxed position at my sides and my legs were still standing with my feet planted in the mud.  I looked like a life size doll. I felt totally disconnected from my body and at peace with everything in the Universe.  I was not the least bit scared. 
Several NDEs including a childhood drowning NDE and an NDE with Jesus.

2854.  Muzaffer E NDE English expanded version 10/15/11 From Turkey, Original in Turkish, translated to English by Aylin.   I couldn't swim and the waves pulled me into the open sea.  I was always the shortest student in my class at school, and the water was way over my head � it was two to three times deeper than my height.  From underwater I looked up and saw surface of the water where the waves were rolling over me. I could feel myself being pushed and pulled by the current.   I passed out in the water,  and then I felt myself moving upward.  At the height of about ten meters above the water, (I don't remember if I was still moving upward, or whether I had stopped) I looked down and saw a hand in the water.  I didn't realize at the time that it was my hand � that's where my body was floating. 
Child drowning NDE.


2853.  Therese B NDE English expanded version 10/11/11 From Sweden, Original in Swedish, translated to English by Maria.  Then instantly I am in a different dimension - in a beautiful place, which is filled with gorgeous white and golden rays of light.  In front of me there is a large group of people, looking so good and happy, all welcoming me. I feel right at home, as if returning back to my real family after a long trip away.  Another Consciousness is speaking directly to me, and it feels like our Father. This Being is love, safety, happiness, understanding, consciousness and freedom! I become aware that I now understand everything, and that I have answers to all my questions. Now everything is very clear to me! The Higher Consciousness shows me what my life has been so far, and I realize that I have not yet done what I am supposed to do.  
NDE after being struck by a car.

2852.  Manfred K NDE English expanded version 10/11/11 From Germany, Original in German, translated to English by Aylin.  While he was in coma and  in the "other side", he felt it like an intensive dream, many pictures, many places, many people he met , some he knew some not, they talked, laughed, cried, thought and he could go to other dimensions. He did not register the staff or siblings visiting him.  But he was in the other side also in a bed and physicians came to see him, but not the ones who were treating him while in coma, it was  the staff he met last year, while he had a surgery on his foot.  While he was reanimated, he stood behind the staff, he did not felt flying on the top. He tried to have a look on himself while he was outside of his body, through the standing staff.
This is hard to understand in English.  But due to the 28 pages, it took me 6 months to find someone who was willing to translate - so kudos to Aylin for the help!  If someone understands German and wants to add to or make it more readable in English, please feel free to do so.

2851.  Lawrence NDE English expanded version 10/10/11 To greet me was a co-worker who was Jewish married to a catholic wife that had just passed within this year, then  I was looking for my parents and grandparents and able to communicate with them briefly and also the spirit of my roommate in the hospital next to me who was dying, physically gurgling with secretions on a do not resuscitate list. There was no gender religion out there your communication with the afterworld people that had passed are all in spirits no faces but you know who they are communicating with you.  You communicate with them along into an immense background of dark space.

2850.  Olu A Possible NDE English expanded version 10/10/11 From Nigeria.  I SUDDENLY SAW MYSELF STANDING IN A PLACE, BESIDE A MAN STANDING BESIDE WHAT LOOKED LIKE A BOAT OR SMALL SHIP. BUT I THINK ITS A BOAT. AND A MAN WAS STANDING NEXT TO IT. HE LOOKED LIKE GLASS, AND WHITE, WITH A FLUORESCENT -LIKE APPEARANCE. THIS WAS HOW I LOOKED AND THE BOAT. THE MAN NEVER SAID ANYTHING TO ME. I WASN'T SURE BUT I FELT HE HAD BROUGHT ME IN THE BOAT FROM THE EARTH. IT APPEARED I WAS THE ONLY PASSENGER. I COULDN'T REMEMBER GETTING INTO THE BOAT, OR GETTING OFF IT, OR HOW LONG THE JOURNEY HAD TAKEN PLACE. MAYBE I WAS NEVER IN THE BOAT. IT'S AT THE POINT I STARTED MOVING I REMEMBERED VIVIDLY . IT APPEARED HE WAS WAITING FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN, LIKE HE KNEW IT WOULD. THEN SOMETHING MOVED ME FORWARD , NOT VIOLENTLY. IT WAS PEACEFUL.

2849.  Marie NDE 6029 English expanded version 10/10/11 I remember be above my body floating.  There was a swirling bright light, the light was full of light dust particles and a tingling of bells.  I was weightless and felt great calmness.  It was a special place without time, space just being.  I felt at peace. I never heard anyone speak just all knowing without words.  I later found out that I was near death.  I can't recall everything that occurred before and during this experience since I was very ill and never mentioned it to anyone at that time. I know now that when my day comes I'll be welcoming the new life.
NDE due to illness.

2848.  Jill Probable NDE English expanded version 10/10/11 I was in a "brown" place; like velvet, soft brown, comforting, safe.  A female being was to my right in a haze of gold, as if lit from within.  I was raised a Roman Catholic and had a great love for the Blessed Mother (I called her "Blessed Mommy") so this being appeared female and spoke in a female voice.  She told me not to be afraid.  She then told me about my life, that it would be quite difficult and that God would not leave me.  She gave me details, but I only now have come to remember one other than the number (23) she gave me.  She told me I would have a "broken heart".
Probable NDE at age 5 due to illness.  Shared 61 years later.

2847.  Sophie K NDE English expanded version 10/10/11 From New Zealand.  I remember saying 'oh I can't breathe' and I was walking through the most amazing trees I had ever seen. The color, the light, indescribable, human eyes miss so much of the color in the world, we are so limited in what we can see. People surrounded me, I was communicating with all of them at the same time, I felt amazing, loved, at peace, utterly content.  Sadly I don't remember what was being talked about (feelings aren't words) I know that I had a choice, I didn't have to return, I could stay, I was so loved.  I saw my Husband with a little girl of three or four straight hair (my oldest daughter had wavy hair) I chose to come back.  Coming back I was trying to breathe with a resuscitation mask over my mouth and nose - as they are sucking the air out I'm trying to breathe the air in.  I had been given adrenaline.
NDE due to complication of delivery.

2846.  Victoria H NDE English expanded version 10/10/11 My speed of travel was 90 mph and I was thrown from my vehicle over thirty feet. Although my relationship with God was not strong at the time, when I knew I was going to wreck I knew I would die on impact and I remember letting go of the steering wheel and saying or thinking "I give it to you God" I had no fear after that and I recall being "sucked" out of the driver side window of my Crown Victoria auto. My next recollection was opening my eyes. I saw a light so bright and believe it was the hot August sun over head. ( it was approx 2:30 pm) I saw a figure against the sun and heard someone praying over me.  I have never been able to confirm that from anyone on scene. I then next recall looking over the shoulder of a paramedic and seeing them move me onto a spine board and thinking "man that's gotta hurt" At the time it did not occur to me that I was watching them move me onto the spine board. My next memory was in the back of the medic unit and seeing a paramedic working on me with a BVM mask and helping me breath.
NDE (early on) and ICU experience (most of what is described) due to auto accident as a police officer.

2845.  Judith L Probable NDE English expanded version 10/10/11 From the U.K.  The whole of this valley was filled with beautiful, tall, slim trees in full leaf which hung partly over my path (which, incidentally WAS a path in that it looked as if it was quite well used) and wild flowers of all colors and hues.   There was a smell of flower perfume in the air, heady and wonderful.  I wanted to keep on walking up this path and now I come to what is totally unexplainable - I could feel that Someone was there ( I could see no-one) and that this being was gently telling me (but NOT in words) that I could not go any further and that I must go back.  My most vivid memory of this is that I did NOT want to go back because I absolutely KNEW that where this path was leading was to a wonderful but as yet unknowable place.  I can only say that the feeling that I had then and that I STILL have now, almost 63 years later is one of ineffable, undying, unconditional LOVE.
Probable NDE due to illness with fever at age 4.  Shared 63 years later.

2844.  Linda W Probable NDE English expanded version 10/10/11 The tech in the ambulance kept asking me if I had ever had a heart attack as my EEG was not right. He ask me three time and I just left him. I could hear him but did not care as I was not longer in any distress and I was floating just above the gurney. The feeling was incredible as I am a worry type of person. I at this time did not have any worries at all. Actually everything in my life seem wonderful. I did not feel as though I was going to stay in the ambulance but that I was going to a place that was beautiful. I don't know how to explain this feeling as I have never had a feeling nor have I known anyone who ever expressed ever feeling like this. It was like I was not a person anymore. At least not the same person.. Then we arrived at the hospital and they started doing test on me.
Probable NDE due to complication of high blood pressure.

2843.  Maria NDE 5309 English expanded version 10/10/11 From Germany, Original in German, translated to English by Hermann There was an indescribable, unbelievable love coming from this light. There's no word for it. Every word is just to slight to describe this love and this peace, which fulfilled me and flew through me from there with this light.  I approached slowly to this light, but without moving myself, it was really strange. And I knew, there, in this light, there is my child, my daughter, which has been taken from me in such a rude way. I didn't see her, but I felt her presence and her love. Additionally I felt the presence and the love of other beings, too, but I couldn't see them.  Suddenly it didn't go on. For any reason I stopped or was stopped. I still saw into the light, but I didn't approach it anymore. And I felt, there here was a boundary and that I had to make a decision.
NDE from criminal attack.

2842.  Paula M NDE English expanded version 10/7/11  I knew I was in the deepest pain ever. I wanted to die, I did, that pain was like a knife cutting through my body. All of a sudden I saw a movie being played saw my four children crying that I was dead, then I saw my grandma the only one I had loved growing up telling me in a weird tone to fight like I have never ever fought in my entire life it was not my time to see her again, I had to fight she would not allow me to die. Then I saw my grandpa I had loved him so much that my heart died the day he died. He was telling me that I can not enter that light and I better fight for the life I needed to live as I was not done on this earth. I needed to finish what I was put on this earth to do. They both stood in this light it was brighter then anything I had ever seen. But I heard there voices to fight and not give up.
NDE due to auto accident.

2841.  Martin R Probable NDE English expanded version 10/7/11  As the door opened it filled the dark room with light. Blinding white light that made it hard to see. It hurt my eyes. Then I remember the women getting up from her chair and walking forward, towards the light. I sat there then suddenly got up to follow her. I couldn't move. I remember reaching out to her and yelling at her to wait. To take me with her. I reached out more and more, but I was firmly rooted to the ground. My feel would not move, and I cried for her to come back. Then suddenly she turned around and looked at me. She then said in what to me seemed English "It's not your time yet." Then she disappeared.
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt with multiple medications.

2840.  Danny B NDE English expanded version 10/7/11 About three feet in front of me, an image appeared to me, dressed in black. I did not see a face, but I heard the voice say to me, "Danny Joe!" (That is my given name.)  "Danny Joe, you have come a little bit early. You need to go back."—at which time I started descending—and then a sudden jolt stopped me again and I rested. It was so peaceful.  There was someone standing on my left and I was approached by this figure, but to this day, I can not tell who it was. I did recognize the voice that had spoken to me, though. It was my grandfather on my mother's side.
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

2839.  Barry FDE English expanded version 10/7/11 From Canada   I felt like I knew and understood absolutely everything in an instant. Having EVERYTHING revealed in only a moment instantly put my life in perspective and knowing exactly the meaning and relationships and truth of everything let's you know exactly where you stand without anyone else's judgment to point things out. You just know.  Afterwards, I did not fall backwards off the edge as I'd thought, I slid down a way and managed to regain control.
Fear-Death experience due to near fall while climbing.

2838.  Muhammad A Probable NDE English expanded version 10/7/11 From Egypt  I suddenly was standing next to my bed watching my body lie there then I heard a voice asking; have you had enough?! I didn't see who asked the question and I did not reply yet. Then my whole life flashed in a couple of moments with vivid detail. I felt that a Male who has passed away was telling me "take care of her". then pictures of people popped up. then I felt a cool breeze although it was very hot, so I said NO, I'm not done yet. then I saw visions of my future and I felt that now I knew HOW to live in this thing called life. I was very peaceful at the moment, seeing my life, accepting death, feeling relieved n tranquil. Silence gave me the feeling of acceptance, that god accepts me and Loves me. then I decided to go sleep or die, whichever way I knew that God had touched me with that experience, I immediately knew that this was special.
Probable NDE due to illness.
