Caroline HR's NDE
I wish I could remember more details about it, (I'd like to be hypnotized to see if I could go back there). It was like a dream, but someone took me to a place and reviewed every moment, every second of my life up to that point. I remember later being amazed that in just a few seconds I could see 10 years, but I could. I could see every good thing and every bad thing and every experience I ever had. I think there was a wheel of some sort, (but I may have read this somewhere and imagined it.) At the time I don't remember telling anyone about what happened to me, because I wasn't exactly sure. I do remember feeling like time was completely different in the place where I was.
later when I first heard of "near-death" experiences and began reading about
them, someone wrote of "life-reviews", and I was like, "Wow, that is exactly
what happened to me."
Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? No
Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Uncertain
I was young, and did not understand it for years, (what it was)-until I started reading about near-death experiences many years later. I wish I could remember the experience more vividly.
At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event? Uncertain
Not sure of the question, the accident was possibly life threatening.
What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience? I was conscious and alert.
Was the experience dream like in any way? Somewhat
Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? No
Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? Don't remember.
Did you pass into or through a tunnel or enclosure? Uncertain
Describe: Don't remember.
Did you see a light? Uncertain
Did you meet or see any other beings? Yes
I don't remember them, but they guided me.
Did you experience a review of past events in your life? Yes
I wish I could remember more, obviously. I was so young, I just remember I was amazed that I saw everything!
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? No
Did you see or visit any beautiful or otherwise distinctive locations, levels or dimensions? Uncertain
Did you have any sense of altered space or time? TIME, apparently time wasn't the same, because I was able to see my whole life in seconds, yet I remember afterward not understanding how that could be so.
Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? No
Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? No
Did you become aware of future events? No
Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body? No
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience? No
Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience? No
How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices? I'm curious about others. (I'm a little skeptical of these people who claim to go on these long journeys and tell every detail of what they see, but maybe I'm just jealous that I don't remember everything.)
Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? No
Have you shared this experience with others? No
I don't feel like it's enough to share, but it was VERY REAL.
What emotions did you experience following your experience? I was upset about my arm, it was sore afterward, but I wasn't afraid, just surprised by the event.
What was the best and worst part of your experience? Worst was seeing the bad things I had done in my life.
Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience? No
Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience? Yes
