Terry V's NDE
Sitting at breakfast table chatting to mother. Began to feel ill. This worsened. Thought I was going to pass out. I fainted but my eyes remained open. I could see and hear but not move. I felt desperately ill. Then I totally lost consciousness. My parents called the doctor because about 20 minutes had gone by and I was still unresponsive. Just before the doctor arrived my faculties were restored.
I traveled to a strange place which was soft brown velvet. It felt good emotionally. A man appeared from my left, he had just exited a room full of people - I knew they had all passed on - I don't know how I knew I just did. One of the people was my father who, was still alive at that time. I knew my father was in that room although I could not clearly see into the room. All the people were exchanging ideas in a really interesting discussion.
I told the man who had appeared that I was feeling gravely ill and I asked him what I could do about that. He told me I could come over and join them. I told him that I had too much to do. I had a husband and child coming and that they needed me. I had things to do for them. I understood and told me that in that case I should look over there. He told me that that was the source of all knowledge and from there I could receive a healing if a truly asked. I saw a brilliant, pulsating, radiating, golden "dawn". I asked it for help. I had to totally concentrate. When I did the radiations lengthened towards me and when I reduced my concentration they retreated. I understood and concentrated really hard. The gold radiations reached towards me and started to "play" on my feet and then steadily moved up my body and as they did a feeling of wellness and well-being traveled through my body immediately behind the radiations. I was completely restored. I called out to the radiations with grateful thanks.
The doctor asked me
what had happened. I told him I did not know but proceeded to explain my
experience. He told me that he had heard stories like that many times before
from patients. When I asked him what it meant he said he wished he could explain
it to me but he could not. However, his validation of my experience was
invaluable. Thankfully he did not scoff.

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.)? Yes I have poor vision all my life but not during that experience. I could see so far and so clearly every little detail.
