Glenna A NDE
At the time I had no idea I was pregnant. I was found collapsed and driven to the hospital. I was barely aware of where I was could not move and was in great pain. I was suddenly outside my body watching my parents, sister and doctors talk about me and my possible condition and fixes. I was screaming this could not be happening and then there was my deceased grandparents at my side. they were perfect and so was everything about the world. I was calmed immediately. they begun to lead me through a void towards a light. I was not happy at all to be going the direction they wanted me to go. closer to the light someone asked me if I wanted to go back. I knew I did and was going to go back. suddenly I was again above my body in the hospital in a hall way being told by a doctor they were going to save me as they pushed the gurney into an operating room. the next thing I remember was waking up in recovery.

How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal every day consciousness and alertness? More consciousness and alertness than normal
If your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience was different from your normal every day consciousness and alertness, please explain: from the time of seeing the scene from above to when I looked down again coming back into myself.
Did your vision differ in any way from your normal, everyday vision (in any aspect, such as clarity, field of vision, colors, brightness, depth perception degree of solidness/transparency of objects, etc.)? Uncertain the depth and dimensions were as one is the best way to explain it...the void was there, the grandparents were then just there...the moving was effortless and the clarity of the reality of what was happening to my body and the choice I could make was instantaneous....like when I knew I wanted to go back poof I was there
Did your hearing differ in any way from your normal, everyday hearing (in any aspect, such as clarity, ability to recognize source of sound, pitch, loudness, etc.)?

Did you meet or see any other beings? Yes my deceased grandparents met with me
Did you experience a review of past events in your life? No
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? Yes I told my mother about the conversation they had and how I had tried to talk to them but they did not listen to me. I asked the doctor why he was talking to me as I was being wheeled to the operating room and if he thought I was really there.....he said I proved to him I was there somewhere and he asked if I was in my body or out
Did you see or visit any beautiful or otherwise distinctive locations, levels or dimensions? No
Did you have any sense of altered space or time? Yes things were happening instantaneously. a thought a communication and flash it was done with out seemingly any effort
Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? Yes simply all was one and one was all
Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? Uncertain there was a place before we got fully to the light I was asked if I wanted to go back. it seemed to be a place where if I crossed on over with my grandparents and the other beings I would not be able to go back to my body
Did you become aware of future events? No
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience you did not have prior to the experience? No
Have you shared this experience with others? Yes as soon as I was able after 3 days of heavy drugged out hanging on to life. it was so fantastic and I was questioning everybody. my mother thought it must have been heaven, she is very Christian. it seemed to deepen her sense of her religion and an afterlife
Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience? No
How did you view the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened: Experience was definitely real I found out about NDEs as soon as I could and have been asking and talking with people when it feels right and the people are receptive. some people strictly believe it is a normal phenomenon of death of the brain and body
Were there one or several parts of the experience especially meaningful or significant to you? being a part of the whole and knowing we are all here in the same position and to help one another
How do you currently view the reality of your experience: Experience was definitely real I have talked with lots of people that have had the same experience or knew of someone that had a similar experience
Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience? No
Have your religious beliefs/practices changed specifically as a result of your experience? Yes I was an atheist and now I believe in a Guiding Organizing Designing process...whatever that process may be I am still not sure it is a entity as much a general energy of the universe
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 so far accurately and comprehensively describe your experience? Yes I may have left out that besides my grandparents there were other people/being there I did not recognize but understood to be loving
Are there any other questions we could ask to help you communicate your experience? I have talked with a veteran of the Korean war and he said his experience had some spirits that he thought to have been the people he killed in the war and they were like being mean to him as he first went over. he said he had expressed regret and sorrow with them immediately and they became friendly. I am greatly interested in the not so joyful/happy experiences people have had in NDEs. surely this one man's story must be supported by others?
