3806. Genny H NDE 11/15/2014. NDE 7462. The trees were on either side of the river and the river ran through the trees. I remember being taken aback by how beautiful everything was. I was very happy because I was on my way to heaven. While I was taking in all of this scenery, I felt like I was in a trance, almost. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a face appeared to me from inside a doorway, or maybe a window. I only saw this person from the waist up. I knew immediately it was Jesus Christ himself.
NDE due to unconsciousness following major surgery for blood clots and an aneurysm.

3805. Glynis W Probable NDE 11/15/2014. Probable NDE 7461. There was a peaceful feeling and I knew I would go to heaven. But I was rushed out of that room and put on my bed as my mother rushed to my side the nurses took my BP and my mother yelled out 70/30. Although I was lying on the bed, I could see my mother talking to my doctor in the doorway as he told her; I hope we can get her back.
Three life-threatening events with at least one probable NDE due to a pneumothorax.

3804. Sally S NDE 11/15/2014. NDE 7460. This wonderful sensation of peace flowed through me, and I floated out of my body. I was in a pediatric ward with two other girls. And I remember looking down on each of them as they slept. Suddenly, a beautiful voice told me that it was not my time that I had more to do and that I would marry and have a boy and a girl. I was also told that my life would not be easy, but I would never be alone.
NDE due to bleeding after surgery at age 9. Interesting future awareness of children that she would have. Shared 54 years later.

3803. Bahman R NDE 11/15/2014. NDE 7456. Non-Western NDE from Iran I see a white space then I began seeing the tunnel. A White-black combination color over the walls of the tunnel whit the images of somebody that was familiar to me, I think he was my parents and my grandfather who was died years before the time of NDE. I remember that I was watching my past years of life and different events with an unbelievable speed.
NDE due to head injury.

3802.  Marc M NDE  11/8/2014  From Switzerland.  After a great loss of blood due to internal bleeding, I left my body.  A spiritual being reached up, grabbed me and pulled me back into my body.
NDE due to acute blood loss.

3801.  Andrew G NDE  11/8/2014  I ask, "Why can't I come in?"  I wanted in because I have never felt so much peace, love and understanding.  It is so much more that I can not explain it. A voice came from with in the light, one I knew it was from a friend of mine that had pasted away earlier that year. He said, "Andy, it is so beautiful here, it's beyond anything you can image or know."  I asked Tim, "Why can't I come in?" Tim replied, "It's not your time, it's not your time." 
NDE due to drowning.

3800.  Sharron T Probable NDE  11/8/2014  There was no tunnel or bright light; instead, a very creamy white/yellow light, like very early morning was everywhere. The colors were so vivid and the layers of everything went much deeper than our typical 3D; it was more like 30x30 D. It was so beautiful and calming that I knew I wanted to be here forever.  There were people and animals as far as I could see.  I could only see the head and shoulders of the people, but there were thousands and thousands of them and I realized I knew every one of them.  On my right, with peripheral vision, I saw my younger brother who had passed in 2001. 
Probable NDE due to severe bacterial pneumonia.

3799.  Mich K NDE  11/8/2014  I always remembered seeing myself in the 3rd person from above (hovering) I swear on my Life this is true. Nothing religious but amazing.
NDE at age 9 due to blood loss from accident.

3798.  Valeria M NDE  11/8/2014 From the UK.   Although it was clear when I was dying at the time of sinking, (like knowing that I am going to the shop), I wasn't aware that I was dead (I am in the shop)or anything would be strange. It was natural seeing my friends outside the ambulance, it was a normal part if my "life". I was focusing on them so didn't see anything else, not my body, not the doctors anymore. I "saw" my friends' worry, astonishment, and "saw" the drinking friend's confusion not knowing what to do, when to come in the ambulance.
NDE due to unknown illness.

3797.  Elise C NDE  11/8/2014 From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. I found myself in a very luminous place with a slight sensation of mist, when I looked to the distance. This space seemed without limit to me, like a void filled with light. At this precise moment I was on a wooden merry-go-round, I was sitting I don't know where, maybe on a horse.  I was calm, I felt very well, I asked myself no questions as I didn't remember my fainting.. For me, I had 6 years, and was enjoying being on a merry-go-round all alone.  Then  a forearm with a hand of a person came out of nowhere, it was as if she showed to me why I was here, as if a camera was showing me that I was unconscious.  This hand had a meaning after I understood what hat happened to me. I had the choice to stay in this place or to go back.
NDE from going unconscious.

3796.  Lariza GWT Possible NDE  11/8/2014 From Mexico.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Eva R. M.  I saw a tunnel, and at the end of the tunnel there was a door with the most beautiful and brilliant light ever viewed. The light attracted my body when I got there.  Arriving at the light I saw the most beautiful garden that anyone can imagine. It had many flowers of bright colors. A stream flowed through the garden.  I heard the water and the sound of many birds singing the loveliest song which can be experienced.  In the garden to the right were two people: one wore a white tunic and had bare feet. It was JESUS CHRIST and besides him was my brother who had died of a car accident when I was eight years old. When I reached them, my brother asked me:  What are you doing here? And Jesus told me: GO BACK. it is not your time.
Anesthesia experience that could be a NDE.

3795.  Flora O Possible NDE  11/8/2014 Upon leaving my body, I shot through the Universe.  I did not see a tunnel.  I saw stars and galaxies while flying at what felt like the speed of light as I went towards the light. I did this each time this happened, four in total.  When I reached the light, Time changed.  I could not tell from the moment of leaving how long each of these experiences lasted, because there was " no time". People refer to this as "Heaven" but when I arrived I "knew" instantly that I was Home!  It isn't a "place" it's a vibration of Unconditional Love. There are NO Earthly terms to describe the Ecstasy felt upon arriving.  It's all Love!
Detailed STE at time she was considering suicide.  States went unconscious, but no life-threatening event documented.  Possible NDE.

3794. Bronwen C NDE  11/1/14 From New Zealand.  I found myself traveling rapidly upwards into the sky. I had an immensely joyous feeling of lightness. I remember looking back at my crumpled body on the rock below and observing that "I" was not my body. I could see everything below me very clearly. Below was the Hawkesbury River, and the beautiful bush surrounding it. I was heading towards some very beautiful cumulus shaped clouds. I had no fear, only joy. I looked back again and saw my boyfriend who i was very much in love with, standing beside my body. In real time this would have been several minutes after I fell, as he was quite a way behind me and it would have taken some time to get down the steep cliff. I was a long way away by now and still traveling upwards, but I could feel exactly what he was feeling. He was very distressed. My heart filled with compassion for him, which I guess was what brought me back.
Exceptional NDE due to head injury from fall and an encounter with an angel.

3793. Annelise W Probable NDEs  11/1/14 The words we use describe our world have earthly reference and to try to explain the experience was hard. I search through poetry to find more meaningful use of words… Pure Bliss Love and deep Joy and  Peace. Words are hard to use trying to share the something which we do not perceive in our current world… It would be hard/impossible not to change when experiencing such Love, beauty and peace and understanding.
Three probable NDEs associated with, at least for one of them, apparent cardiac arrest due to blood loss.

3792. Vernon C NDE  11/1/14  From Canada.  I thought how weird it was that I had drowned; yet I could still see, think, wonder, and etc.  I thought OMG,  here we go again.  We don't die. All the hogwash about heaven and hell isn't real.  I just drop my body off and, wow! I am not dead.  As I rose higher and higher, I lost vision of my body.  Then I turned around and saw the light.  I was taken to a big room and shown myself on a screen for a life reading.  I saw everything in my life that I had done, frame by frame, and in slow motion.  I re-experienced every moment and its cause and effect.  There was a sense of oneness, no judgment, no criticism, and no condemnation.  There was just a sense of peace.  Then it was over and I was told that I had to go back.
NDE due to drowning.

3791. Marney N NDE  11/1/14 I floated above in the room, I could see everything that was going on, but not afraid or concerned with it. I saw them cut my clothes off after 'I was gone' which was validated later. It was a light feeling, like the world was lifted off my shoulders and I could float now, I felt like I was safe, I was comfortably curled up, in a pair of giant hands that held me, this comfort, this ultimate light was everywhere, I knew I never wanted to leave that place this is where I belonged. Then I felt like I fell from a tall building and slammed back into my body. I remember my family there and very angry, my demeanor was elation (which I am sure confused them).
NDE due to overdose in suicide attempt.

3790. Sherry S NDE  11/1/14 This is when my sister said I turned green like the wicked witch.  As I thought I love you all, I was gently guided to the light, I felt unconditional love, immense joy, happiness, contentment, although I did not see God, I knew he was with me.  I wanted to stay I was happy and at peace.  Suddenly I woke up in the truck, looked around and saw we were about 10 miles from home.  My sister was looking at me like I was dying and said are you ok.  I started crying because I wanted to go back.  I was heartbroken I could not stay with God and I cried for the rest of the trip to the hospital and I am crying as I write this because I wanted to stay.  They brought me to the hospital and was told I had gone into anaphylaxis shock from an allergic reaction to codeine and had turned green due to my heart stopping.
NDE due to allergic reaction.

3789. Farrah NDE  11/1/14 Loud bang! Lightning and blackness, Big terrifying... SILENCE... I was no longer home I was safe, free in light traveling somewhere unknown. Bright and warm and I felt loved ones were present. I admit, at the time, it felt like I was moving in joy, peace both emotional and physical.  During this I was being escorted and cradled by loved ones past, whispering. A stronger sound came from the rest. It was either a VERY close family member or a loving influence giving me a path option. I could choose the light or return to my body.  I awoke to darkness a LOUD ringing then SEARING PAIN. I placed my hands on my battered head and waited.... I later was able to call my mother and get help.
NDE due to suicide attempt by gunshot to head.

3788. Amanda M Possible NDE  11/1/14 I remember being taught how to fly by a very nice lady who reminded me of Glenda from the Wizard of Oz. I remember flying around my house and being amazed at how close I could get to the floor without landing. It was as if I was able to become incredibly small and fly through the fibers of the carpet. I specifically remember the feeling of learning how to soar and how exhilarating it was. I flew around my house and the nice lady laughed at my amazement.
Possible NDE associated with fall out of bunk bed at age 7.

3787. Garrett T Probable NDE  11/1/14 I had been very depressed and overdosed on my insulin. It worked but not for long. While I was "dead" there was a shadowy figure next to me. He pointed to my seizing body on the ground and then I felt a surge of pain before returning to life. Ever since then on the anniversary of this event, someone I love dies at the exact time they declared me dead, only they stay dead. Other than that, the usual paranormal boost stuff.
Probable NDE due to suicide attempt at age 13.

3786. Joan S FDE  11/1/14 When I came to the man was on top of me with his hand over my mouth.  He told me, "Shut up, I have a knife."  I felt him prick my face with the knife and at that moment, I believed that he was going to kill me! The thought of him slicing my face was so frightening, and the fear of experiencing that, led me to accepting death before it even happened!!  Moments after these thoughts, I was up in the sky, maybe about 20 or 30 feet high, looking down on this man who was on top of my body.  I was aware that I had no body, but I could see, just as though I had eyes. If I had a body, I would have been floating flat on my stomach, looking straight downward.
Fear-death experience during criminal attack.

3785. George N NDE  10/27/14 When I realized all the new faces coming into the well lit room, I felt myself going up as if in an invisible elevator and was hovering (I actually felt like I was bobbling) above my bed. I remember that I was able to hear and know what everyone was thinking and saying all at once. . .and there were many doctors and nurses in that room at the time. I remember that I chose that one doctor understood what was happening to me while the others were speculating. I came back down and said out loud "listen to him! He understands.
NDE due to bleeding after surgery.

3784. Anna A NDE  10/27/14 From Greece.  I barely glanced at the over packed surgery room, emergency bells were ringing for my doctor to rush in, I saw her looking at my body and talking to her/it as I was hovering above, happy, healthy, excited. before I knew it, I got pulled, as if by a vacuum cleaner, into this wonderful pool of light... Till today, that pool is the most beautiful, most perfect thing (for the sheer luck of the truly matching word, I can't describe it as anything else but "thing") I've ever experienced. Yet, the one word I'd address to the entire experience/journey, would be "REALITY". THAT pool, THAT place, THAT event was the most REAL thing that's ever happened to me. On that background, the life I'd been living on planet Earth was an insignificant second of an experiment, which I'd volunteered for. The ME; I wasn't Anna the lady who'd just given birth; but it was a light being - "LIGHT" in every sense.
Exceptional NDE due to blood loss after delivery. 

3783. Victoria W Probable NDE  10/27/14 The grass was tall and there were beautiful flowers - unusually colored- not bright but not dull...all to throughout this meadow.  My younger brother, William, who died at age 18 from Ewing Sarcoma would be there but a lot of the time we'd be entities, not in human form, but I'd know it was him and we communicated without speaking.
Probable NDE due to septicemia.

3782. Sara A Probable NDE  10/27/14 The very first thing I noticed upon awakening was that I could literally feel all the intense energy of terror and panic that was radiating from my husband, yet I felt unusually calm and peaceful myself.  I wondered momentarily if I was dead, because I had heard this is what the feeling is like of being away from one’s own fear and becoming a detached observer.  I could see the energy of the terror in him as being separate from his core being and I just knew it was something easily managed.  I instantly knew how to sooth him energetically and went right to work doing it.  All I wanted to do was comfort him.  I didn’t even know that I was injured and felt no pain so as I tried to sit up he stopped me, crying, and informed me that I had a serious head injury and was bleeding severely.  I was completely non-perplexed by this and I felt no emotional or physical pain.
Probable NDE due to concussion.  Remarkable life changes after concussion.

3781. Reinaldo N FDE  10/27/14 From Brazil.  Original in Portuguese, translated into English by Alexandra.  I saw all my life, all my past, my family and friends, all the important moments of my life in a flash. Then I opened my eyes and I don’t know what happened, I should have died in front of that truck, and that didn’t happen. I didn’t do anything besides waiting for certain death. I wasn’t alone, my friend was on the bike with me and could not explain and did not understand why we didn’t die. 
Fear death experience from an impending motorcycle accident.

3780. Juanita NDE-Like Experience  10/27/14 From Spain.  Original in Spanish, translated into English by Eva R. M.  Suddenly I felt like I was shot out of my body; I bolted fast, flying in the midst of an endless ocean of light; going very fast. I felt that I traveled a great distance, when, inside me I knew I was reaching a limit after which would be Jesus, God, (since I was a child I was very much a believer); that, if I crossed, I would not come back. I felt a desire to follow, but an inner voice told me and made me understand that I was not ready to go there, that there were still things I must learn, and I, myself, then thought "I'm not ready, I must return".
NDE-like experience.

3779. Nancy S NDE 22979  10/27/14 I had gotten to the top of the stairs and put my hand on the door knob and then I saw myself going down I felt like my head was cracked open but it had lots of lumps my arm and wrist where broken… I saw myself falling down I watched it.
NDE vs. fear-death experience from fall down stairs.

3694.  Lou N Probable NDE  6/7/14 & 10/18/14 As I was being operated on I remember looking down at the surgeons working on me. I tried to tell my parents everything was ok.  After a few seconds or minutes I felt a warm glowing light, it felt so warm and so good.  I met this person who said she would take care of me, I asked who are you, her reply was I am your grandmother’s mother. This was a Person I had never met.  After a few seconds or minutes I told her I was starting to get cold, her reply was you will need to go back now. I did not want to go back. She said you must it is not time yet.  The next thing I remember was waking up in the recovery you with my parents.
Probable NDE during surgery for complication of appendicitis at age 7.  Shared 65 years later.

3778. Raymond O NDEs  10/18/14 From the UK   I find myself in a place I had been to before, indeed I was happy to be back, the familiar bright vivid green grass and the breeze was warm and so soft, it felt like meeting a very much loved old friend as it knew me, I stood there anxious to be recognized by the people in front of me, were five people, two men and three women all dressed in white robes, I looked down at my feet as I had no shoes on, I scrunched my toes to feel the grass to kind of confirm that this is happening the grass was so soft, as I looked up again one of the ladies smiled at me and mentioned to youngest of the two men that Raymond is here, he with the three women turned their heads and smiled at me and that point the youngest man turned to the older man who seemed to have no interest in my visit at all, he was reading a book the younger man and said very clearly "Raymond is here", "he is not supposed to be here" said the older man.
Two NDEs due to cardiac arrest in a short period of time.

3777. Sherry C FDE  10/18/14  I threw my arm over my baby brother's chest, (as if that could save him), and the next thing I saw was me looking down over us all, as if I was floating over the whole scene.  I silently yelled out to God, please save us!  Next thing I saw, our huge car had wedged itself between a huge, old, concrete cattle trough, and the huge oak tree.  Our car came to a stop, and I was once again in my body.  Everyone was ok, and Momma was able to back out of the ditch, we headed on to work and school, and acted like nothing ever happened.
Fear death experience due to car accident without significant injury at age 13.

3776. Lisa M Probable NDE  10/18/14 I remember hearing the complete panic in the nurse's voice and wondering why she was so upset, because I felt fine, at peace. I was aware that my heart wasn't beating and that I wasn't breathing, but I didn't care. I could have just stayed in that peaceful place, but the urgency in her voice seemed to force me back against my will. After that, I only remember being aware of one instance during the operation when the doctor hurt me while clearing my nasal passages, then nothing. No one ever talked to me about my reaction to the anesthesia, but I'm sure I had a bad reaction and almost died.
Probable NDE (vs. anesthesia experience) during surgery.

3775. Gabby G NDE  10/11/14  From South Africa.  I then bit the nurses who tried to get the stomach pump into me. They removed my false teeth to stop me biting and then I was out of my body.  I watched the doctor say "we are losing her, we-are losing her." Then I was in a tunnel and travelling to a light with a wonderful feeling of love and protection. A voice said "why have you stopped fighting? Don't you know I am still with you?"  I was then told I had to go back. I did not want to, but I woke up in a body that had voided and was really manly. The doctor was almost in tears and said "we nearly lost you".
NDE due to psychotropic medicine overdose.

3774. Nichole BD NDE  10/11/14  I was running in a grassy field toward a giant sun. I remembered looking down at my legs and they were short to the ground, I was a child again. There was another child holding my hand and running beside me. It was a little blonde hair boy with blue eyes. The most amazing part was a pure feeling of the most intense love I can barely describe. It was just wave after wave of pure love. It was within me, it was around me, it was EVERYTHING. It felt like heartbeats of love, one wave of love after another. Yet there was love in the interim as well, then the wave would come with even more and more. It was endless, eternal and complete. I had no fear whatsoever, I had no feeling other than LOVE. I had no thought other than reaching the LIGHT. I felt pure happiness and joy.  It was the most beautiful feeling that words could never even come close to describing.  The closest thing I can think of to relate it to on this earth would be the moment I brought my child into this world.
NDE due to apparent complication during surgery.

3773. Luis H NDE  10/11/14  I woke up in a place where everything was white and clear, I felt alive for the very first time, I had no pain, no sadness or anything all I felt was love and peace. As I looked around a bright light hit my face and blinded me, as I tried getting closer to it the more at peace I felt. When suddenly someone was covering the light and began to get closer and closer to me. As that someone was getting to me my heart felt joy, love and peace, once in front of me he hugged me and told me he was my father and the one who created me. When he told me that I knew I was home but in his words; he told me it was not my time and that he would call me again when it was, also to tell my story so that those who do not believe in him could see that he does exist and he is watching over us. Once God told me that, I woke up in the hospital like if nothing ever happened.
NDE due to cardiac arrest at age 10.

3772. Elle D NDE  10/11/14 I wanted to find an anchor, a point of stillness, I observed my parents making love and was drawn to them, experienced myself in my mother's womb, then my own birth and relived my life...not so much the various experiences but what it was like to be myself at each stage growing up, until I became an old woman and died (again). At death I again resisted with everything I could muster and was again terrified. The same experience repeated itself. This cycle happened several times until I finally surrendered at the death stage. When that happened I found myself in a bliss realm, of supreme love and wisdom.
NDE due to strychnine ingestion.  Interesting frightening aspects of NDE until she surrendered- and the experience became blissful.

3771. Zoe C NDE  10/11/14 From Philippines.  Soon, I experienced myself speedily floating inside a fast moving silver metallic tunnel and saw a very bright light at the far end of the tunnel. When I got out of the tunnel, I was met by a blinding, shining floating white robe. On the side, I saw my father who died six years ago (1982) and I clearly remember he was smiling to me.  Crying of extreme joy for seeing my father, I asked him to please help me get back and still he kept on smiling.  I implored "God please return me, my child needs me" and suddenly I heard a thunderous voice saying "GO BACK".  In a split second, i found myself inside the same tunnel going back to where I left off. I knew later that after 10 minutes when the doctors declared me CLINICALLY DEAD, I was miraculously alive then transferred to the recovery room where I slept for four hours.
NDE due to complication of delivery. 

3770. JJHG Experience  10/9/14  From the Canary Islands.  Original in Spanish, translated to English to Erika.  I wondered what was going on while my body sank into deep relaxation and began feeling an intense wellbeing, peace and tranquility within myself. Everything went absolutely black. I didn’t hear or see anyone. I saw no lights, no stairs, heard no voices. I would have died happily at that time. I wanted to die. I felt no fear. I know what it feels like to die and I'm ready ... I went into respiratory arrest.
Anesthesia Experience.

3769. Richard NDE  10/4/14 I remember being sure that I had in fact died in the emergency room, and to my amazement finding that there was life and consciousness even though I knew I was dead.  When I did arrive to stand next to these two groups of people it was as if it took no real time at all to reach the people ahead of me even though it had felt like a giant struggle to do so. I can still here the sound of my voice as I asked them "who are you people?" It is a sound of disbelief that something I believed not possible turns out to be proof, positive true. I could make out very little of what they were saying, but one group seemed to trying to make the other group understand that "I was a traitor" while the other spokesperson for the opposing group asked for an exception.
NDE with very atypical experience content.  It is notable how uncommon NDEs are with such an atypical experience.

3768. Wanda M Probable NDE  10/4/14 As we pulled up to the hospital, and they took me out of the ambulance, I started seeing my surroundings very differently. I was sure that they lifted the gurney to maximum height for some reason. I was at least 10 feet in the air, looking down. I remember as we entered the halls of the hospital that the ceilings ties were right next to my body and face, and the floor was a long way down. They started to intubate me, quickly grabbing plastic doo-dads and hoses.
Probable NDE due to exacerbation of asthma and bronchitis.

3767. Monika NDE  9/28/14 From Czech Republic.  Original in Czech, translated to English to Rick. My experience began with a flight through a dark tunnel that had a “certain structure.”  I came closer to the light, which was all the more intense but in no way did it address me.  the light was full of love, otherwise I am unable to give it a name.  I found myself in a fruit orchard with the constantly pleasant light.  It was as if it told me that I don't need to be afraid.  It said that I was received with enormous love and no one in any way will judge me.  My inner feeling was that I ended up home. It was very peculiar that it was as if I did not have a physical body. I was extraordinarily light and my legs in the grass did not touch a single blade.  I was pretty confused by that because as an atheist and a person when I confront something scientifically unexplainable, I am reluctant to believe it.
NDE from former atheist who tried to commit suicide.

3766. Rhea S Probable NDE  9/27/14 Then I got the distinct feeling that I was going on a journey. My spirit felt exhilarated but I remember arguing in my mind, I can't do this because my sister is severely injured and needs me! The next thing I knew I felt so exuberant going through this high speed tunnel. It was like a swirling, dark vortex. But I felt blissed-out in it. The next thing I knew ,I was floating above my body in  the emergency room. I remember seeing a clock on the wall and being slightly above it. I was puzzled and then I realized that I wasn't in my body anymore. I didn't know what to do then. I was felt confused but not panicked. Then as my dislocated shoulder was reduced, I heard my body screaming below.   Next, I got sucked back in it through my chest.
Probable NDE following car accident.

3765. Mary Ann P NDE  9/27/14 I could see her from above.  I was on the ceiling looking down at her trying to tell her to help me. I could see her calling an ambulance and trying to put clothes on me. I was unable to help her, since my legs felt like lead. I floated to a room somewhere, and could see a small door at the far end of the room. A part of me felt like I was supposed to go through the door, but another part of me said, "No." Then I saw a figure. I don't know if he was God or what, but I kept telling him to let me go back and that I wanted another chance. I then looked to the left and I could see down again into the bedroom.
NDE due to allergic reaction after eating brownie laced with marijuana.

3764. Marsha T NDE  9/27/14 This experience was very quick because the perpetrator was scared off of me. What happened is that I quickly entered a tunnel of white light. The tunnel was white - the end of the tunnel was like a grey dot in the distance. It was the most wonderful experience ever. So peaceful! Then there was the music!! I was overwhelmed by it. I have never heard anything like it before or since.  I look forward to hearing it again. I cannot describe it but I will never ever forget it.
NDE due to criminal attack.

3763. David B NDE 7395  9/27/14 My grandmother was in front of me smiling.  Behind her, I could see lots and lots of people.  They were not really people, but shapes of them in a cloudy grey color.  I could feel them and the excitement and happiness coming from them.  I could feel that I knew them and they were waiting for me.  My grandmother was smiling as she said, "It is not your time yet, you have a few more things to achieve."
NDE due to seizure.

3762. D NDE  9/27/14 From France.  Original in French, translated to English to Marguy.  I floated by the wind going fast higher up. I didn't know if this would be stopping or if I would still continue to go higher up into the sky. I saw the place globally (swimming pool, public gardens, the stadium, streets, roofs of the houses) by an angle that is just impossible to guess, watching the agitation of people on the ground and me floating above them.
NDE from landing wrong while diving into a swimming pool.

3761. Kevin E NDE  9/20/14 At some point in the night, I fell off my bed, onto the sharp, slightly curved-upward, wooden "leg" of the rocker, which I believe I landed on, probably around my temple.  As soon as I fell off the bed, I saw myself HIT the rocker and was thinking "that's going to really hurt". Immediately, things became surreal.  The door to our room opened and a brilliant light came forth, with a woman (angel?), coming in to cradle me in her arms.  The light filled the entire room and I could feel her sweetness and love.  She was dressed in either brown or gray, quite simply and had long brown hair and brown eyes, full of love.  Back to reality: my brother had alerted my parents that I was laying on the floor, and apparently injured (he told me later I screamed when I fell).  This woman, I'll call her an "angel", took me up through the roof of the large/tall apartment complex (called Tulip Tree) and through space.  I do not recall the time elapsing, but we "floated" or something, to the hospital, where I recall seeing myself from above on the operating table.
NDE at age 3 due to head injury.

3760. Elaine L Probable NDE  9/20/14 From France.  Original in French, translated to English to Marguy.  My father was pushing me back saying “no you cannot come with me, go back with your son”
Probable NDE from falling and going unconscious.

3759. Paulo NDE  9/19/14 he only thing I wanted to know then was, what purpose? She responded it's not for me to know, but everything is going to be alright/OK. Which I understood that meant not just the trauma I had just experienced, but my whole life.  Then I was outside my body above the ambulance, I didn't descend from the clouds or anything, I was just there. I recognized the street and surroundings and knew where we were headed, the hospital. Instantly I could feel myself, I took a breath and opened my eyes.
NDE due to fire at age 7.

3758. Otto J NDE  9/19/14 From New Zealand.  To my surprise I was again watching the rain but it was hitting the ground in slow motion. There was plenty of time to watch each individual drop even though it was raining even harder now. Then everything went white like a bright mist. The mist cleared as I moved forward. There was no sensation of walking I just wanted to move forward and that’s where I went. As the mist cleared I looked down. There was a line or boundary that I knew I wasn’t to cross. Beyond the line there was a very large plain building with an opening like an arch at its base. People were coming through the mist and passing through the opening as if it was the normal thing to do. As I pondered this situation a women in her 50's came up behind me and put her hand on my shoulder, she said" you know you're not supposed to be here aye?" I got the impression she could tell I wasn't in a good state of mind and I knew I wasn't going to get any further than this. Just as I was turning back I woke up.
NDE due to suicide attempt at age 17.

3757. Lyndall W NDE  9/19/14 From Australia.  I noticed that the Doctor was surrounded in a shining silver light. I was aware of my body being surrounded by a beautiful blue light.  I felt as though I was held in the arms of Jesus or some incredibly loving energy, similar to that of a baby being loved and held by its mother, although clearer. I was not afraid at all and in some ways very alert.  All pain disappeared. I felt the energy moving up my body and was conscious of wanting it to move out through my head.  I felt, or heard myself humming a sound similar to the sound Om, I recognized this after I came around. At some point I was aware of my life passing before my eyes and I was judging the events impartially. I was aware of a panel of people advising me.  I was asked if I wanted to continue on or go back. It felt as though reasons were presented to me for a case to return to the body.  I believe that I wanted to move on into this loving space. At some point I decided that I would come back for my new baby.
NDE due to hemorrhage after delivery.

3756. Steven M NDE  9/19/14 At the time my air way was being blocked off by a much larger boy at the school bus stopping response to I me making fun about him with the other kids that where there to go to school. He has pushed me up against a tree and as I blacked out I felt myself sliding down the face of the tree. The next thing I knew I was looking down on this whole seen with me there and the girls that where there pulling him off me. This looking down seen lasted no more than 3 seconds, but during it I do recall having 360 degree vision if you will. I recall coming back around and gasping for air and my throat hurting for several hours at school that day and then the whole thing was forgotten about until almost 20 years ago when I read about someone's NDE.
NDE due to being choked at age 10.  Shared 49 years later.

3755. Margaret R Possible NDE  9/19/14 The only thing that I can remember is leaning how to walk and maintain a connection to the divine at the same time.  I also remember that I learned to withhold making judgments, not just about a person, but also about any situation or circumstance that I found myself within.  I was not to determine if it was bad or good.  I was to first allow the Father to show me how to view it, or the person, and how to react and feel about it.  This would be kind of fed or downloaded to me in the form of an impression.  (I often get these in life).   This way, whatever the experience, the Father is telling me what I need to know in order to perform or react and feel in the manner that best suits my survival here and my growth to be that which I was created to be. 
Probable NDE at a few months old due to accidental overdose of medication.  Shared 57 years later.

3754. Ricardo AH NDE  9/19/14 From Mexico.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Erika.   After several minutes we approached the mountains in front of us and the cloud was increasingly larger and brighter. Its whiteness was impressive and that glow was growing more and more; it approached me until it enveloped me. In the light of the cloud I realized that its color was white, but with a slight golden hue. I felt at that moment peace, joy and absolute tenderness, as if that light burned me and gave me complete serenity. I was subjected to a love without limits comfortable as if on ones lap. I felt welcomed, loved unconditionally, forgiven for all my mistakes in life. Everything disappeared, the sharp sound, the voice of my companion, the panoramic view, everything. Well I was there, enjoying the peace. In the light of the cloud I didn’t see my body either. I found myself joined with the light and full of happiness.
Exceptional NDE that happened two months ago from a priest going unconscious.

3753. Wendy G NDE  9/7/14 I continued to float up and a tunnel appeared.  A beautiful tunnel with a bright light at the end of it (the light was brighter than the sun but did not hurt your eyes and it was pure white light).  I knew that I had died and would be leaving behind a 5-6 month old infant and my husband but I did not care.  I wanted to go into the light.  I wanted to go home.  When I came through the light I knew everyone there and they were so happy to see me welcoming me home.   They were all dead relatives - none had I met before but I knew everyone.  They also appeared in human form to be recognized but somehow that was not their true form now (something I had sensed). I had a connection with everyone and almost a collective consciousness (I do not know how to describe it).
Detailed NDE due to cardiac arrest during surgery.

547. Barbara S NDE. English expanded version 1/16/05 & 1/30/2011 & 9/7/14  The next thing I remember was coming into a clear white light.  I lost all fear of drowning.  I knew that my body was perfectly safe.  I felt this total love and acceptance from this light.  I realized that the white light had a voice in it and was separate from me.  I also realized that I was still me but was part of this white light also.  I belonged to it and it belonged to me.  I was told that you are here to gain knowledge and to learn how to love.  When I was told this I realized that when the entity say "You" it didn't mean just me, it meant the human race.  I understood all the ramifications of love and knowledge when it said this to me.  It didn't mean physical love as much as learning to accept all races and knowing that no soul is better than another. 
NDE due to drowning at age 10.  Shared 49 years later.

3752. Bob M NDE  9/7/14 I stepped into deep water way over my head and after a few bounces from the bottom to catch a breath of air I ingested to much water so I died. While in the act of dying I was terrified, but only for a few seconds.  Then a calm and peace came over me  that I still remember vividly.  Warm light and peace that passes understanding (literally) surrounded me and I was going to the light. Next thing I knew I was laying on the bank being pounded on and hurting in my chest.
NDE due to drowning at age 9.  Shared 69 years later.

3751. Marta E NDE  9/7/14 From Portugal.  A car came across the one I was driving and I lost consciousness by traumatic cranium encephalic attack… I remember I believe I was out of my body, looking down and asking me I was everybody so anxious about the situation… It was so peaceful, that I can't remember in my all life to have had a such equal experience .
NDE due to car accident from physician.

3750. Jeffery M NDE  9/7/14 I remember trying to talk to a family member but they did not hear me. I somehow realized they could not hear me so I thought about getting close to their ear and trying again and realized that I was instantly already by their ear. I remember going in front of the house and counting how many emergency vehicles arrived. Counting the cars, pickups and fire trucks and police there were all together 15. I remember seeing all the priests from the Catholic high school across the street all standing together in the side yard out of the way of the firemen. I did not realize I was gone and out of my body until I was revived and sitting in a chair later behind the house and had time to think about the episode. I was revived by paramedics. My hands and feet looked like burnt bacon for a long time.
NDE due to electrocution at age 16.

3749. Joshua L NDE  9/7/14 In this state I felt timeless, it felt like a eternity could have passed yet I was still aware of the now. The more I started to think of what happen to me and how I got here, the slower I began to move. I began to try and resist it as if I had any choice and a peace came over me that rendered me helpless and calmed me at the same time. During this timeless state I did have memories that I could use to amuse myself. Being only 5 years old I don't remember all the countless thoughts I had because it felt like an eternity. I do, however, remember the detail of how they appeared in my mind or consciousness.
NDE due to fall with head injury at age 5.

3748. Don D NDE  9/7/14 I wondered what was in the beautiful city below, and if there were any trees there like on earth. Without moving, suddenly I could see a street level view from within the city. Not only were there many trees, but they were sublimely beautiful. They were extremely colorful….in a palette of colors that does not exist on earth. I was immediately struck by how beautiful these colors were….and how odd it was that they were almost intense in the sense that neon colors were, yet somehow struck you as being as mild as pastel and perfectly coordinated. I marveled at how very much more beautiful the color palette was there than it was on earth.  
NDE from unknown illness.

3747. Beau B NDE  9/7/14  From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.  I was floating in an azure-blue sky. A cold wind hit my limbs. I heard the sound of the wind upon me. I was transported. My arms and legs opened up like a cross. I was flying at such a speed...towards this light...At the moment I didn't realize what happened, but it was impressive...maybe I was in big tunnel? I don't know. As everything was blue. I felt cold, very cold. Afar I perceived this immense and very bright white spot, but it was pleasant to the eyes, not dazzling. A radiation, a source of warmth and well-being was warming my face. There was a great feeling of heat, interior peace, what else can I say: of well being...I felt good, very good. I was bathing in a fullness, a love... All around myself I just saw blue. An  azure-blue.
NDE from accidental strangulation.

3746. Peter B Probable NDE  8/23/14 It was then I had a feeling of floating and like a fainting feeling. In a flash I was not in my bed any longer Looking up I saw the clouds. Then I looked back to see my person body laying there on the bed. I could feel uplift and no longer felt the weight of this world I was free and now flying into the clouds, no more pain no More anything of this earth. Looking ahead I was going higher and then there was a bright warm light so bright but full of love there was no fear at all. I came to a stop and then form no place at all there was a voice. It was a warm and soft voice. You have to go back, it is not your time you have things to finish that are not done!
NDE vs  Dream vs Febrile Hallucination from flu with fever.

3745. Donna GV NDE  8/23/14  I remember floating through the woods of many trees there seem to be an open path where I was floating toward. I heard people in the woods laughing at me, but I could not see them. Still floating forward, I felt no pain, or any emotions. Yet the feeling was wonderful. I came to a stop and said "I am ready". I knew that this was the place to leave the living. There were many people who spoke as one collective mind. They said that is was not my time and that I had one more thing to do. I then woke up in the hospital in a fog not knowing anyone, even though my husband and his family were there to visit.
NDE due to car crash.

3744. Maggie S NDE  8/23/14 Post surgery hemorrhaging... wakened lying in a pool of blood.  Medical staff very busy in the room.  I felt detached from all of the events.  I separated from my body.  I observed myself lying on the bed...all of the busyness in the room.  I felt no pain or distress.  It seemed that all was okay...but it also seemed that things were not okay.  I awakened sometime following realizing that I had experienced a clinical death.  I was unable to relate to my experience.  I did not talk about it for years.
NDE due to post-operative hemorrhage.

3743. Henrietta J NDE  8/21/14  From France. I saw a light, bluish white, very intense, that didn't dazzle me. All was black around me, I floated in the void while approaching this light, then was stopped as if being behind an open window. I wanted to jump into this beneficial, living light, that seemed to me being God. But my grand-aunt, deceased in 1982, appeared to me in the frame of this window. She was wearing a  double pearl necklace. She was young and bright. I then said to her.”Aunt Andrée, I would like to stay with you.“ She smiled to me. My consciousness was lucid, much clearer and quicker than in the earth life, and I knew myself being dead. My aunt, while smiling, answered: “No, that's not possible.” I insisted:” Aunt Andrée, please allow me to stay with you, I'm fed up journeying down there, I want to get back home!”
NDE from peritonitis.

3742. Tina S NDE  8/16/14  I then became aware of a light off to my left. I no longer felt my body, but I believe I was still in it. I realized that my grandmother and great-grandmother were standing at the entrance to the light. My grandmother had died in 1978 and I had never met my great-grandmother. Both were native. They told me by telepathy that it was not my time and that I had more to do. During this time, and I have no idea how long this lasted, I was completely immersed in the most incredible love, contentment, acceptance, feeling of being home that you could imagine. In fact, we don't have words to describe the feelings.
NDE due to accidental gunshot and cardiac arrest under anesthesia.  Initial part of experience is ‘anesthetic awareness’ due to incomplete anesthesia, and is notably different from the content of the NDE.

3741. Sam J NDE  8/16/14  I tried my best to ignore the energy but Creator/God/Great Spirit is a little hard to ignore.  Creator/God/Great Spirit said to me, "You’re going back."  Exercising my free will and choice (Yes, I have that kind of relationship with Creator/God/Great Spirit that I feel just fine talking back) I said, "No I'm not"  Creator/God/Great Spirit said, "Yes you are.  I have 'stuff' for you to do."  With that a bolt of energy came out of the energy form and zapped me.  (I often mediate on that moment that bolt hit me.  It takes me back to the moment when Creator/God/Great Spirit and I were one.)  I had the sensation of falling back through a black void to a small dot of white light screaming, "Define 'stuff'!"
Exceptional and thought provoking NDE due to apparent clinical death with absent brain function.

3740. Mauritz N Probable NDE  8/16/14  From Sweden.  Suddenly I was in a dark tunnel with a bright white light in the distance that I have ever seen.  My life started to flash.  The feeling was fantastic. Total bliss. Best I have felt ever. This is 100% different from real life where I live in constant pain due to back injury/surgery.  In the bright light distance I heard a voice in Swedish tell me: come here. It’s ok. Some kind of humanoid looking life form I never have seen.  I said to them: Not now.  I started to struggle to get out or the tunnel.  After some time I woke up after the struggle.
Probable NDE due to respiratory suppression from medication. 

3739. Gary J NDE  8/9/14 I got up off the arena operating table and stepped around my surgeon to his left, looking over his shoulder, at my draped body and the opening in the surgical drape surrounding my incision, running down my lower back to my coccyx. A nurse was handing the anesthesiologist a syringe with what I heard was adrenaline. He injected it into the IV over my left arm. I saw the monitor and it was flat lined. Then things got busy. that moment...all of the drama and apparent life saving activity became unimportant.
NDE due to complication during surgery.

3738. Olivia E NDE  8/9/14 I was floating at the top of the car ceiling in the backseat behind my Dad's head!! I saw his silhouette shape, his back to me- I saw the very bright dashboard lights. I saw over in the passenger seat, 'Mom' with that scarf on her head. It was night time out. I realized I was floating and I looked down at my 'floating' self, but there was NO BODY there. I could 'FEEL' Everything around me- FEEL IT!! From my Dad was tremendous fear that he was fighting so he could drive. From 'Mom' I felt some fear but her focus was on Dad and not wanting HIM to be upset. Then I saw THROUGH the seats of the car. It was an early 50s model car, the seats split, yes, but no room to see between them. Split, so people could push them forward to let kids in the back seat. But I saw right through them, saw a bundle on my 'Mom's' lap. It was me, but I did not know it at the time… I clearly understood far more than an infant would, there is NO doubt about that.
NDE at age 6 weeks old due to flu during drive to hospital.

3737. William H NDE 7340  8/9/14 Each of us, as an individual sphere of communion seems the embodiment of two complementary halves: Understanding and Memory. While Understanding seems the principal characteristic of the higher soul, Memory seems to be the principal characteristic of the lower soul. As I experienced it, Understanding is our individual portion of the limitless Knowledge of the One Soul, the evolving insight we possess into the Way of the One, our individual spark of immortality. Memory, on the other hand, is the accumulated impressions of all the lifetimes we recall, the sum of all the personalities we have yoked to our soul, our enduring storehouse of mortal treasures.
NDE due to cardiac arrest.

3736. JK S Probable NDE  8/9/14  I stood at the end of the table in front of a Captain's chair mentally listening to them. I felt comfortable with them and the space was filled with caring and love. It all seemed so natural. They were discussing my life and my accomplishments. They knew all the details of my life, as if my life was condensed to symbols or special signs. I vividly recall not sitting down to join them... because in my mind... I wanted to return. Attention was upon me, and I mentally told them I wanted to return to raise my son (my son was four years and wasn't allowed to visit me in the hospital).  I was mentally told that was my choice.
Probable NDE during bronchoscopy and ADC next morning from deceased grandmother.

3735. Cyanrose J NDE  8/3/14  I instantly floated above my body. Confused and in fear I considered floating out the window, but turned and saw my infant daughter, the doctor and nurses were working to save her life.  I floated toward her-reaching as I neared. My baby was beautiful. My arm and hand seemed extended in length; longer than normal. My extended hand went right through them all. I started to feel panicky. I tried to speak but the doctors/Nurses couldn't hear me. I watched my baby kicking her feet and moving her arms. I could hear her crying. My heart ached because I felt she was dying.  In tremendous emotional pain and anguish I floated outside the room to see a red phone in the hallway.
NDE during delivery.

3734. Wanda K NDE  8/3/14  The best I can explain is my spirit submitted completely, I knew God was there and it was as if I was resting within him, not as a separate entity. It was truly the greatest peace anyone could know… I didn't hear, just was and that was being within God… Immediately "knew" that God was there and I existed in Him.
Probable NDE due to hypothermia from scuba diving.

3733. Cassandra P NDE  8/3/14  From Australia.  The color was indescribably beautiful, alive, delicious, shimmering and enveloping me.  I was moving upwards, I sensed, at great speed.  I thought, "This must be how death feels - how can anyone fear this wonderful release, this joy?"  Then I glanced back, down the light, to the bedroom where my body lay on the bed.  This all happened very quickly - it felt like a matter of seconds.  The bed was distant, about the size of a matchbox, and I could see my body on it.  I could just make out my mother, still on her knees, beside the bed.  My next thought was, "I can't do this to her".  So I turned, head downward, down the ray of light, and struggled to pull myself back to my body.  I was disappointed, even sad, to return, but felt it was the right thing to do, for my mother's sake.
NDE due to fever from cowpox.  Happened at age 17 in South Africa.  Shared 53 years later

3732. Barbara G Probable NDE  8/3/14  I found myself sitting up on my bed feeling more wonderful that I have ever felt in my life.  The empty shell of my body still lay on the bed behind me, but it meant nothing.  I struggled to get free and go. However it felt like something was tethering me around my legs and holding me down. When I finally awoke from the oxygen deprived sleep, with my head pounding, my Tomcat was laying full length on my chest peering into my face.  I knew immediately what I had experienced was no dream. It was very, very real. It's engraved on my memory so clearly as if it just happened yesterday rather than more than 3 years ago.
Probable NDE due to undiagnosed medical condition causing anoxia and syncope.

3731. Wendy T NDE  8/3/14  After 2 or 3 days the nurses made me get up and walk in the hallway.  I saw the Doctor who had been screaming at everybody and wouldn't give up and I went up to him and thanked him for saving my life.  All the blood drained out of his face and I think we both realized at the same time that we had never met when I was alive.
NDE due to suicide attempt at age 16.

3730.  Marie W NDE  8/3/14  Then a pair of hands came thru and they were amazing and I instantly knew they were the divine hands of Jesus, He reached and I was in them. He began moving me. Handing me off to the next Master. Then these exquisite sounds were all around me and through me.  It was like music, but not.  There were notes and frequencies and each note and each blend of frequency changed my experience into the next step.  I journeyed everywhere. I was taken by one ascended master after another and each master took me into a different dimension.
NDE due to criminal attack.  Remarkable account and very atypical.

3729.  Carlos S NDE  8/3/14  At the time, most of my body was covered with a bright red rash and high fever. The doctor’s diagnosis was Scarlet Fever.  I can remember being in agonizing pain which was heightened every time my mother would try to cool down my body using a kitchen towel filled with ice. I remember lying there on the sofa in a pool of sweat, scared, in pain and ringing in my ears, looking up at my mother and seeing the fear in her face. She was frantically trying to lower my body temperature. Then, silence. The ringing stopped, the pain was gone and I (from a higher elevation) was watching my mother kneeling beside the sofa, shaking me. This lasted for what seemed a matter of seconds and the noises and pains returned.
Brief NDE at age 5 due to Scarlet Fever.

3728.  Mary D STE  8/3/14  When my focus went to the field of particles I kind of had the thought "what is this?" which was immediately answered with, this is the tiniest particle. This is what matter comes from. This is love expressed as material. This is what everything is constructed from. This love, this love expressed as matter, is what the universe is made out of. This is love, this is God's love. Each physical piece of it is love and consciousness and the space between is love consciousness and infinite knowledge infinite information. This is what you did not know yet. This thing, this is it, this is the bridge between my love unexpressed and you. This is the bridge between all that energy unexpressed in the void and you, this field.
Exceptional STE while operating a vehicle.  Multiple insights, including insights into the tinniest particle that composes matter.

3727.  Jacqueline HW NDE  7/1914  Upon experiencing the tremendous light, which to our normal eyes would seem almost blinding. I first saw our dog, Mr. Miyagi, who had passed six months earlier. He had died of old age, but upon that meeting he was like a lion, in his prime, and sitting in a meadow. He radiated love for me and for our time that had been spent together on this earth. You don't communicate through words. it is just a knowing.  I then met Malcolm G, who was a life-long family friend, and a very strong influence in the way my early adult life panned out. He had passed of cancer a few years earlier and was a strong handsome young man. I was actually very surprised to find that he had passed of cancer as he had always been a very sick child suffering from kidney disease and having had two kidney transplants. His body was always weak.  I felt a sense of laughter all the way around Malcolm, as he always had a wonderful sense of humor and wanted to become a comedian. I think he would make all the spirits around him laugh!
NDE due to cardiac arrest from apparent heat stroke.

3726.  Beth S NDE  7/19/14  I was floating in the blackness heading somewhere. I was happy to be there. It was peaceful, calm, quiet. I felt as if I knew all the secrets to the universe. Then a pounding on my chest, a man yelling, my sister in law crying. And I was really angry to be back in my own body.
NDE due to electrocution at age 15.

3725.  Alta NDE  7/19/14  From South Africa All I knew was that I fell and it was dark then I was in a wonderful, warm and loving light. It felt as if I was being held in the arms of Jesus. Fully protected with no fear, but total calm. Feeling held like something precious. I had a sense of timelessness and comfort. I had no awareness of my body or any contact with the physical world. Total peacefulness.
NDE at age 6 due to accidental burial during construction.

3724.  Martha BG NDE  7/19/14  There was a very bright light and a welcoming place.  I was not in a city and there was no landscape, just the warm, loving, wonderful, welcoming bright light.  I was coming toward an indistinct group of people, they had no bodily form they just seemed to be hovering near a central figure who had on a flowing robe. I had a choice, I could join them or return to my life. I had a wonderful, joyful, peaceful feeling.
NDE due to unconsciousness during delivery.

3723.  Ken D NDE 7316  7/19/14  I remember seeing myself in the car.  Then I went through a tunnel.  I saw my father and other relatives.  I felt so happy and at peace that I did not want to leave.  There was a body standing there in a robe looking like Jesus standing there. I can't say for sure that it was him or not. The light was pure white, bright, crisp and perfectly round with him standing in the center.  He said to me, "Go back, it is not your time yet."
NDE due to auto accident at age 17.

3722.  Tikvah F NDE  7/19/14  I was above the chaos, confused as to where I was. The paramedic struck the body's chest twice, as she said, "I got this." A baby was crying loudly and people were rushing around. Then there was a man at the body's head, while the woman kept pumping the chest. I wasn't interested in the body. I heard a voice telling me, "Your father is coming." the voice repeated it. My father is dead, I thought. The confusion below me continued. Then I saw my deceased father walking toward me, as if he were walking on beautiful hill; he looked younger than when he died and had three children with him. He gave me a look of recognition as greeting. But then he disappeared. I felt so sad that he was gone.
NDE due to cardiac arrest associated with cardiomyopathy from prior anthrax poisoning.  Another experience described that is possible dream.

3721.  Wendy A NDE  7/19/14  I was simply interested in what was going on, and was experiencing a profound feeling of peace and lack of connection with the entire situation. I always thought that if I were ever near death I would frantically be scratching out messages to my loved ones, but I didn't give any of them a thought! I heard them call for a priest, and I could see someone comforting my crying roommate as they escorted her out into the hall. They had trouble getting the blood transfusion started because they said my veins were collapsing and that's the last thing I was aware of. I don't know how much time passed, probably not much, but I suddenly "woke up" as the priest was anointing me with oil.
NDE due to blood loss following hysterectomy.

3720.  Yamen Probable NDE  7/19/14  Nonwestern NDE from Lebanon.  Original in Arabic, translated to English by Tarek.  I felt relief. I felt that this explosion released my struggling soul.  My soul could now roam around where ever it wanted without obstacles.  I felt complete freedom.  I was now free and didn’t need a passport to cross boarders or move around the earth.  I could even roam around the universe, but I didn’t want to leave Earth so I wouldn’t feel lonely.  I was flying very easily.  It was not a dream.  The feeling of flying was very real.  A being that looked like the Joker (from the card game) approached me.  He was very friendly and gentle.  He was my guide as I traveled.  He directed me to the way to Brazil.  I had always wanted to see Brazil. 
Probable NDE from bronchitis.

3719.  Paul Probable NDE  7/15/14 I was completely filled with peace, and like a spiritual chorus of joy, much deeper and broader than euphoria. My inner being was an enormous producer of power, from deep within me, from the deepest heart of my very inner being was an immeasurable love and purity, I became a very source-generating of gushing purity and truth. This is the only power that is truth. Within me was an incredible replenishing of the power of goodness, expanding and flowing out. Like if suddenly you flipped on a million spotlights pointing out from every direction, from inside of me, each having a trillion tons of force pushing the purity of love and truth, from every which way. As I slowly floated forward. Ever increasing in goodness. This power had a sense of warm liquid, bright pure light, calm and radiant but extremely immense, and intense, energy. It grew to be as large as the sky and ever bounding from within me. My inside grew outward. It was the only true power I have ever felt.
STE probable NDE due to poisoning.  Very long commentary.

3718.  Tina G NDE  7/15/14 I had peace that my body felt nothing could describe it. Never needing to take a breath, never feeling any pain, only feeling peace and only feeling joy, better than the best day ever. I could never explain how this felt. On the right a happy joyous occasion Sofie graduating throwing her hat in the air Johnny hugging the whole family. The children are well on their way to a successful life. Corey and I held hands tight we were so happy. The pain, it was agonizing I took a breath in it could not breath out. I felt as if someone had hit me with 100 sledgehammers. This is how I would live for a period of time, I would have to heal for period of years but, I would know my purpose.
NDE due to aneurysm rupture.  Remarkable simultaneous future visions of the consequences of returning to life or not.

3717.  Bella J NDE  7/15/14   I remember the air being forced from me due to the impact. Immediately I was without a body; the best way to describe the experience is I knew who I was however I did not feel pain nor was I afraid.  I was surrounded by a tremendous white light. I felt unbelievable peace, love, harmony, goodness.  I knew I was floating, that I did not have a body; I sensed goodness around me then senses a question asking if I was ready to die. I knew I was conflicted - instantaneously I saw my grave with my two little children crying standing apart from my husband, their dad. I sensed I could not leave my children; I saw the lake water parting as I was pushed to the surface of the lake.
Exceptional NDE due to being hit by ski boat.

3716.  Sandra A NDE  7/15/14 From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.   I found myself above the table. An intense light; I heard everything that was said; I witnessed my own resuscitation. I saw my body bouncing with the electric shocks.
NDE after giving birth.

3715.  C C Possible NDE  7/5/14  From Canada.  I fell down a tunnel at a high speed, tried to get a grip at the walls of the tunnel but someone always pushed my hands off and I kept on falling. That was not so nice, but suddenly I rose into a bright, white light, all was warm and I felt a deep love, indescribable, and I felt a presence and I felt a bit of shame because of this presence. I was about to see hair, I saw and outline of it, that presence was very close, but then I woke up with a nurse watching over me… I had a nurse at my bedside 24 hours.
Possible NDE during general anesthesia. Shared 42 years later.

3714.  Sandy A Probable NDE  7/5/14  I asked without speaking what we were doing there. The presence said it was time for my review. I immediately felt ashamed because I knew I hadn't done my best. Suddenly I made clear I wasn't ready, but the door still opened. I saw a desk and books or scrolls, and a huge screen. The screen turned bright, so bright my earthly eyes would not be able to stand it. I knew I didn't have to be ashamed. It was a learning experience, but all of a sudden I heard a LOUD bang and woke up.
Probable NDE due to criminal attack.

3713.  Jeremiah J NDE  7/5/14   There is zero ego to Michael and his caring is deep. Apparently I could help him with one or more of his duties. I wondered about God and he told me that God is all around us, in us, and everything. God Is. (This communication is all telepathic at this point but his use of "God Is" was clearly demonstrative in nature) He will take me to be presented to him. Quick aside here, this really confused me when I later returned. How could God be everywhere and yet I be "presented to him"? This took some working out for me even though the answer was clear when I was there.
NDE due to cardiac arrest during surgery.

3712.  Karin F NDE  6/30/14  I told her that I was afraid that putting myself at the same level as Jesus would damn me to hell. She laughed and told me there is no hell! We are all equal in spirit form.  She then said that I was still veiled and made a gesture that must have taken off the veil for I immediately went to a place I now call the sea of light. As I stretched out my arms I felt as though my body exploded and I was no longer in bodily form. I could not see where any separation I had no beginning or end. I was truly one with all of creation I could only see myself as a purple and gold light amongst all the other.  The being that brought me told me it was time to go back. I cried and begged her to let me stay, but she told me I had unfinished business.
NDE due to clinical death during surgery.

3711.  Carmen V Shared NDE  6/30/14 To me it felt like the same energy as if walking towards a party with many people - like the energy of many beings. I have a mental image of these beings being white and surrounded by whiteness.  I also sensed a beautiful, comforting, peaceful music.  I don't think I heard music and I have no auditory memory of music, but somehow I sensed this wonderful music.  I wanted to follow the spirit and fly upwards, but at that moment felt the weight of my body.  I opened my eyes and saw a doctor leaning over me.
Shared near death experience with unborn fetus.

3710.  Béatrice P NDE  6/30/14 From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.   I felt a sense of complete well-being, I had the sensation that nothing could happen to me, and I heard myself telling my mother “let me die” without any fear. Then I found myself at about 3 meters above my body, I saw my mother shaking me in panic, but I was in the position of an observer of this situation without any stress.
Beginning of a NDE from an allergic reaction.

3709.  Alba NDE  6/24/14 From Spain.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Erika/Roberto.  In that moment, I had the experience. I saw my body on the bed with the nurse trying to wake me up.  Since she couldn't, she started calling for help. I saw the activity around the hospital, as if there were no ceiling. I felt very welcome and wonderfully good, on something that felt like cotton.  It was warm and bright.  During the experience, I thought about no one, not even in my children who were young at the time.
NDE from miscarriage. 

3708.  Samson J NDE  6/21/14 The light seemed to be the brightest white I had ever seen. As I entered the "tunnel", I felt an indescribable sense of warmth, love, peace - not sure how to describe it.  The farther I got into the tunnel, the greater the peaceful feeling became.  As I approached the "end" of the tunnel, I could see people waiting to greet me.  One of them seemed to be my mother-in-law who had passed away 7 months previously.  At this point my forward progress stopped - then I started to move slowly backward for a few seconds - then my memory of the experience ended at that point.
NDE due to intravenous fluid overload.

3707.  Haley T NDE  6/21/14 She proceeded to tell me that my daughter would need all of the love and support I could give her so that she would make the right choices when she needed to. Her road was a road less traveled. This woman explained that she knew I wanted to stay on "this side" but I had to go back to take care of my children and to "get back on track". Several of the people congratulated me on my wonderful gift that I was given and told me that I was so precious to them yet I did not know any of them. The woman pulled me back from the group and told me to remember all that she said, gave me a big hug, and told me it was time to go.
NDE due to blood loss at childbirth.  Interesting information that she would have a daughter even though she had been told she would have a son.

3706.  Jo B NDE  6/21/14  In one strand I was aware that Light knew me better than I knew myself. Despite any of my foibles, eccentricities, poor decisions and plain old humanness, it loved me to the core. It found the seriousness with which I viewed myself amusing. It seemed to be certain that in the end, all of my problems, hurts, inflicted hurts, and my life in general would be redemptive in the sense that it would ultimately end in love.  In another strand of thought it seemed as if huge amounts of information about the true nature of reality was being introduced. My mind kept seeing, and attempting to absorb, data that was contained on scrolls. A scroll would unroll and the data implant itself in me. Some of it I could comprehend. Much of it was totally above my head. Gibberish. What was clear to me was the overriding message that humans, as units of consciousness, are capable of experiencing reality in ways far beyond what we typically do.
NDE due to seizure.

3705.  Lis L Probable NDE  6/21/14 From the Sweden. Original in Swedish, translated to English by Ami.   The sensation in and of itself, the feeling of being heavy like lead, gave me the feeling of being in another dimension. As if the body and soul emerged from different dimensions, and that this results in a splintering within our human body.
Probable NDE that resulted in PTSD (Post traumatic stress syndrome)

3704.  Salem NDE  6/14/14 From the UK.  Next to the being was my father who had just died. My father was dressed in the same clothes that he died in a few days earlier. My father spoke to the being saying my son won't let go of me. He said it in an Indian language called Gujarati which we speak.  A long queue of people were still shuffling in to my left, waiting to go up these white stairs. At that moment, the being came right up close to my face and SNARLED ever so loudly.  Its teeth of bright white fangs and grisly hair really scared me. It was telling me to let go of my father. I let go instantly. I was holding the process and queue up as it was my fathers turn to go into the light and I wouldn't let go of him.
NDE with atypical content due to passing out.  Contributor is Muslim.

3703.  Kat P Probable NDE  6/14/14 I found myself fully aware and present, yet all that I could see was the most beautiful of all-consuming light, everywhere just the light. It was like the center of a flame. I had an overwhelming feeling of ok-ness, like more than love, more than peace and beyond serenity. It was so good that words can not describe it. Then I heard my own voice say, "But he is only 9." (referring to my son)  It was a moment of doubt. In that instant, the light was gone and I was sitting in my hospital room.
Probable NDE while on a ventilator with adult respiratory distress syndrome and multi-organ failure.

3702.  Sally A NDE 7265  6/14/14 From South Africa.  All I felt was extreme bliss, peace, love, and so much warmth. I felt myself exhaling my last breathe. I was completely at peace and felt a joy that I cannot describe.
NDE due to unconsciousness of unknown cause.  Experience happened 4 days prior to it being shared.

3701.  Daniel H NDE  6/14/14 I asked God to let me into heaven.  A tunnel came  into view and it was smoky.  Further up into the tunnel, I saw a light and it begin to clear.  I told myself I was glad that I was going up instead of down.  I saw my body lying on the ground but my eyes were level with the grass. It was daylight where I was.  I saw an elderly white haired man sitting in a chair with a boy with long hair sitting next to him on a stool.  There were woods in the background.  I remember most that the elderly man told me to make peace on earth because I couldn't stay yet.  I told them I would see them again and then I re-entered my body. 
NDE at age 12 due to head injury.  Shared 52 years later.

3700.  Michael Joseph NDE  6/9/14 I ended up with a life review, and was escorted around "the other side" by a being who was my guardian angel/teacher  whom I came to call "professor" but he had an incredible sense of humor. I say "he" with tongue in cheek because "he" was neither a he or a she.  I saw what happened to true atheists (apparently I was opened minded enough that I didn't qualify). I got to see various "heavens" and asked to see what "Hell" was like if there was one (and there was but it was nothing like I expected). I even asked to meet Jesus and apologize only to meet a man that was nothing like I expected and was given interesting historical facts I was later able to verify.
Two NDEs as a teenager.

3699.  Sonya M NDE  6/7/14 Caution, Graphic Content.  When I was on the other side of the light, I such beauty.  Gardens upon gardens of colorful flowers and the sky was white.  I saw a person who led me further inside while saying to me, "It is not your time, you have work left to do.She said that I would survive what was happening.  I will have babies and a new husband who loves me unconditionally.
NDE due to being stabbed in criminal attack.

3698.  Wanda S Possible NDE  6/7/14 I had the experience of images of my past appearing to me briefly. A montage. They were familiar yet distant. They were not memories that are available for me to recollect. I do not understand the importance of those images or IF they are important. The best way to describe them is if you are familiar with the Harry Potter franchise... They were similar to the moving photographs. The last image is the only one I can recall and have spoken of. It was a brief fast forward and it was of my husband and I on a front porch with us surrounding a young boy. I knew it was our son. The house is not familiar to me as of yet… I saw my son before he was born. My last image was my husband and I kneeling down surrounding a boy about five on a front porch with white railing. I knew everything would be okay.
Possible NDE while under anesthesia.

3697.  Sabina Possible NDE  6/7/14 It was even brightest than the place I was in, but again not glaring. The Being was personalization of happiness, love, bliss, maternal feelings toward child, it was everything you want at the same time. I can't describe how good I felt there. Even now, when I think of that I have tears in my eyes, because it was INCREDIBLE. I forgot about everything what I left and wanted to get there where is the Being, I knew it would be over of all fears I have ever felt, I would never be sad again, I would never cry and never be worried. I knew this would be the end of everything. I was quite away of the Being. I wanted to move and get closer but could not. Then I heard the voice. The voice which didn't belong to woman or man, it wasn't said in any language. I didn't see the Being opening it's mouth (if it had any), I somehow heard it in my head. This voice was so soothing, calming, sweet...well, it said only two words: "Not now".
Possible NDE at age 15 at night while sleeping.

3696.  Glen D NDE  6/7/14 At the time I was 46 years-old and didn't see all that well without my glasses. But I remember watching as new cardiac nurses entered the room to assist. These are nurses who I'd had no contact with when I entered the room for surgery.  Oddly enough, from my vantage point I could read the names on their badges, Landers and McCarthy, and I had no glasses on…
NDE due to cardiac arrest.  Remarkable later verification of OBE observations during experience.

3695.  Robert T NDE 7256/7343  6/7/14 & 8/9/14 THEN THERE WERE WORDS!  There was no speaking as the figures lips never moved nor did mine.  But there were words. It was a question.  “Are you ready”? Vague but decisive and I felt no ambiguity in its meaning.  I replied but yet my lips didn't move and I have no memory of actually speaking.  But this is the reply.  I simply said......  “No, I'm not ready yet”.  This in and of itself was odd because I had already given up and was ready to die in my awakened state and body.  Evidently not.  Then more words.  “there is something important you still need to do” and at the same time I “felt” these words a smile began to form on the man’s face and more rays of light began to shoot out of nearly every part of his face.  I reached for his face, unafraid but exploring.
NDE due to unspecified terminal illness.

3694.  Lou N Probable NDE  6/7/14 & 10/18/14 As I was being operated on I remember looking down at the surgeons working on me. I tried to tell my parents everything was ok.  After a few seconds or minutes I felt a warm glowing light, it felt so warm and so good.  I met this person who said she would take care of me, I asked who are you, her reply was I am your grandmother’s mother. This was a Person I had never met.  After a few seconds or minutes I told her I was starting to get cold, her reply was you will need to go back now. I did not want to go back. She said you must it is not time yet.  The next thing I remember was waking up in the recovery you with my parents.
Probable NDE during surgery for complication of appendicitis at age 7.  Shared 65 years later.

3693.  Hamad A NDE  6/7/14 Non-Western NDE From Iran There was no fear or nightmares in any of these experiences; on the contrary, there was a special feeling of peace and warmth. I could feel the difference between the physical and spiritual world. I could feel that physical laws like gravity or pain do not apply to this spirit world. You can see clearly in dark of the night and you can look right into the sun without burning your eyes. I could feel that I was protected by an invisible force. I didn't feel lonely or lost at all, it is hard to describe. It was like there were eyes watching me but I could not see them. Although one expects to feel distressed, the dominant feeling there 3693was love. But I did miss my loved ones. The space I was in was light with a special color of green and yellow. I felt like I was on some kind of edge or boundary, where one side had one color and the other side a different color. I could go to one side and return. I could see the light and colors, but could not see any source for it.
Combat NDE from war with Iraq.

3692.  Andrea J NDE  6/5/14 From the UK I was in the operating bed looking down at myself with lots of nurses and doctors around me. There was so much blood then was pulled upwards in the sky. My vision was blurry I saw the most amazing bright lights and colors. Then a large building. I was stopped was told it wasn't my time and to go back. Then I was rushed back next thing I woke up in the recovery room.
NDE due to blood loss at childbirth.

3691.  Mary C NDE  6/5/14 From Canada.  I went from being frozen, quivering, silently screaming, to feeling incredible warmth and happiness. I was bathed in light and no longer felt wet, weighed down by ice, water, clothes or worries. I was perfectly warm, joyous, loved and peaceful. The light surrounded me but also seemed to direct me forward. I felt the same kind of perfect and overwhelming love I felt when I first held each of my sons.
NDE due to drowning in icy water at age 9.

3690.  Greta H FDE  6/5/14 I was on the Mississippi River and stepped off of a sandbar without a life jacket. The current caught me and brought me under. My brother was near and I tried to grab onto him to keep me up, but he was not strong enough and I was going down. I looked up and could see the light above me and my brother swimming at the top of the river (which is unusual since you can't see your hand under the water in the Mississippi. it is very muddy) I was struggling and flailing my arms at first to stay afloat, but then my life started passing before my eyes. I saw myself swinging on the swing set, climbing trees and playing with my dolls. I was totally calm and peaceful during this time. Then all of a sudden I heard a swooshing sound and my other older brother was grabbing me, and pulled me up to the top. He saved my life.
Fear-death experience due to drowning at age 12

3689.  Sherrye KS Probable NDE  6/5/14 I was back on the bank of the black river. Again I looked across and this time I saw Paradise. The bank of the other shore was, made of crystalline sand that sparkled like diamonds in the beautiful, bright light that shone there. Beyond the beach grew beautiful, lush foliage, all kinds of beautiful plants. My eyes were drawn back down the beach where I saw, to my amazement, my friend, Penny. She was dressed in beautiful flowing garments. She smiled and beckoned for me. I saw movement in the foliage and saw, to my amazement, the head of an albino tiger emerge from the shrubs. I looked to Penny thinking I should warn her but she looked toward the magnificent creature, smiled and extended her hand. The tiger went to her and stood calmly by her side. I thought to myself. That's where I want to go. I want to go to Paradise. But I was not allowed to cross the river then. My soul was taken on a journey. There was much I had to see and learn first.
NDE due to car accident with head injury.

3688.  Brenda R NDE  6/5/14 As I was going backward, I saw three different events in my life that were part of the future. Two of those events gave me great shudders and feeling of relief when I had completely passed them. Then we were over the top of the hospital and descending through the roof - passing different floors and seeing people walking and working on those floors. And, eventually we were in the operating room, looking down upon my body, the two doctors and nurse. I heard them talking about me, the doctor said 'I will not lose this patient over such a simple operation' and they were working around my head.
NDE due to apparent complication of tubal ligation surgery.

3687.  Simon NDE  6/5/14 My first memory was my fiancée coming to me. She was standing over me saying, "Wake up Steve, you have to wake up". I could see her face, calm but insistent. It was almost like I was late for work. The next thing I remember, I am awake, face down in the lake with a mouth full of water. I cleared my lungs as I tried to swim toward the back of the boat. I got up on the back of the boat and climbed into the aft cockpit and climbed onto the main deck. I was expecting to see my fiancée standing there. She was not.
NDE due to apparent head injury.  Encounter with living person during experience which is relatively rare.  Experience happened two days before it was shared.

3686.  Ana A Probable NDE  6/5/14  From Columbia.  I just thought, well, finally the time has come and I am happy because I want to depart. It has been accomplished. I proceeded to go to the light but when I tried to walk in the door that embraced the light, I heard many voices, which I identified. It was the voice of my uncle saying that what has been done is done and there’s no going back; it was my decision. I heard my mother’s cry but it did not stop me; my aunt also said that she cannot believe what I had just done. My uncle urged them to pick up the body as I had made my decision of leaving them. My brother was devastated. He was crying inconsolably to the point that this situation pulled me to go back.
NDE from a reaction to medication and marijuana.

3685.  Julian of Norwich Probable NDE  5/26/14  Julian of Norwich probably experienced a near death experience on May 13,1373 AD.  Julian of Norwich, her real name unknown, lived in relative seclusion as an English anchoress (a type of female monk)during the tail end of the middle ages. Although not a household name, she has been revered by Christian mystics throughout the centuries.  Few books survive from that era of 641 years ago.  Of particular note, "Showings" was the first book written by a woman in the English language.  I find it intriguing that the first book written by a woman in the English language was about a near death experience.  The quality of Julian of Norwich's shines in both literary complexity and spiritual maturity.   In my opinion, the writings of Chaucer, her contemporary, pales in comparison.  Edmund Colledge says this: "Julian's book is by far the most profound and difficult of all mediaeval English spiritual writings."
NDE from 1373 A.D.

3684.  Francesca NDE  5/26/14  Next thing I am seeing myself at a distance but not ground level. There were people all around me looking down at me. I could see the emergency vehicles and lights for what seemed like a mile in length.   
NDE due to motorcycle accident.

3683.  Malavika H NDE  5/26/14  From India.  I felt very light and peace, I was in this dark place, where it was rather cold. I saw my grand mother who had passed when I was 15 there. I was really close to her as a child as both my parents worked late and I was raised by her. I was so happy to see her. She was really into praying and such, and always attended bhajans, etc.  I hugged her and told her I missed her. She told me she missed me too, and that she was really proud of where I was and who I had become.
Non-Western NDE from India due to faint.

3682.  Leslie Probable NDE  5/26/14  Once that stopped I realized I was hovering just above my body, facing the ceiling . The room was filled with a soft glowing light. Then the light fixture in the ceiling lit up. I was very curious about this and wanted to float up and look at it. After I floated to the ceiling and looked at the light fixture I turned around and looked at my body. I really felt no emotion about my body, I was actually very calm and felt extremely peaceful with all that was happening. It was at this point I sensed a being in the room with me. It was a male presence that I could not see. He spoke to me through my mind and asked if I would like to stay or go. I replied to him that I was only a kid and I still wanted to stay.
Probable NDE at age 13 due to pneumonia.

3681.  Sylvie A NDE  5/26/14  From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.  At that moment, I was already out of my body and I heard that he said that my blood pressure was too low. Then I found myself in a luminous and soft place, white figures talked gently to me, they told me a lot of things about myself (I didn't remember anything after), the thing I remember is that I wanted to stay and that they told me, that it was not the moment; to help me decide they showed me the interior of the ambulance, I heard what the paramedic said to my mother - that I would not make it to the hospital; and I saw her crying sincerely.
Teenager NDE from suicide.

3680.  Penny C NDE  5/26/14  I was greeted by my great grandmother who looked so young, and so many other deceased family members with big smiles on their faces. Some of them died before I was even born. I knew of some by being mentioned from my mom. Everyone was introducing themselves to me, and telling me who they were. I felt this love like out of this world. It was like they were waiting for me, they knew I was coming, and was prepared to greet me. I was not judged by my lifestyle on the earth, but I remember my great grandmother showing me so many things as well as explaining them to me. I don't actually remember what was being said, but I remember feeling good the whole time I was there.
NDE due to faint at age 15.

3679.  Nicola E Friend Experience  5/26/14  Michael said that he remembers me stopping for gas and asking the attendant for directions to the hospital (TRUE).  He said that he wanted me for his mommy because he liked my voice when I was speaking to the attendant.  ( I did stop for gas and I was kind of lost going to a rural hospital, so I asked for directions).  Then he said that he remembers that the parking lot was partially closed for construction, so I had to park on a corner and run to the hospital… Then Michael said the most incredible thing. He said that while his "real mom" was in labor, he asked God if I could be his mom because he knew that his "real mom" wouldn't survive very long, and he was afraid of being alone on Earth.  Apparently he was told that he couldn't have me for his "real mom" but that everything would be OK and he would still get to be around me during his life.
The most remarkable pre-birth remembrance ever shared with us.  Exceptionally detailed observations of boy about to be born confirmed years later by a friend present at his birth.  Nicola E did not share her email address- we are asking her to email us.

3678.  Michele G NDE  5/17/14  At this same time, I felt as if I was 8 or 10 feet tall because I was looking down at the dash/steering wheel but I was much higher than I would be if I were seated in the car. I heard/felt a voice asking me "Do you want to go/leave?" my response was indignant. I had things to do. I wasn't finished. How dare I be asked to leave!
NDE due to car accident.

3677.  Rick E Possible NDE  5/17/14   Drug or medication overdose… It seemed as if though the planet kept moving but I didn't. I traveled through the solar system and the galaxy and the universe seeing nebulae along the way. When I finally arrived at a place where a cylinder made of rotating lights, not unlike a tunnel. As I got closer they appeared to be angel like and I felt as if I might know them. The most important thing to me overall was the feeling of being free. No fear. Total awe. It was the best I ever felt in my existence.
Possible NDE due to unspecified ‘drug or medication overdose’.

3676.  Tina H NDE  5/17/14  I had been drinking and I drank too much in a short amount of time. I remember falling half way into the bathroom and not being able to move. I remember people talking about calling the paramedics.  Then everything went black and I felt a peace that I had never felt before or again. I was no longer in emotional pain. I was not angry or scared. It was the peace I had always been searching for. Then suddenly I was back on the floor of the bathroom as the paramedics arrived… Within days, I shared it with a friend that was present when it happened. She then informed me that I had a seizure and I had stopped breathing for a short period of time.
NDE due to alcohol overdose.

3675.  Stephanie D NDEs  5/17/14  There was a Being standing next to me on my right.  He was so radiating love and warmth coming from him.  It was unlike the feeling of love here on Earth. It was similar to being in someone's arms you deeply love- feeling warm, protected, happy and then multiply that times 1,000.  His love was radiating out and filling me with that same love.
NDEs at age 4 ½ due to blood loss following operation, and age 25 due to heavy object falling on her.

3674.  Beverly L NDE  5/17/14 Critical Head Injury… I was four years old. I fell and injured my head. I lost consciousness. Then, I was above myself, aware of the injured child. I connected to the injured me in a way I cannot explain.  I was older yet aware of both of us. I could see from both views… The "older" me was very intent on me focusing on what I needed to do to be ok.  And I felt in both senses of age an extreme importance.
NDE at age 4 due to head injury.

3673.  Mahmoud NDE  5/14/14  Non-Western NDE From Iran.    Original in Persian, translated to English by Shadi.  I was unconscious and felt like I had gone to a different place. It was quiet and pleasant. I felt very light. The feeling was so great I can’t describe it. I could taste a sweetness inside me, everything was beautiful. I was in that moment for around 30 minutes. In that moment I knew that whatever I wanted I could get. For a second I thought ‘who am I?’ I saw my whole life flash before me like a movie. Any I could go to anytime in my life's review. It was amazing. I felt like my intelligence and thoughts were beyond normal. I did not feel like I don’t understand, it was a great feeling and I wished I could stay here and not leave.
NDE from being knocked unconscious.

3672.  Doris Possible NDE  5/14/14  From Venezuela.    Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana.  I listened what was going on out of the building, but I saw myself in the wall, just as I was dressed and with the same asthma attack I had at that time, I think I was out of my body, but I was not scared, I knew I was feeling sick, I could still listen to what was going on in the street, I knew what was happening to me.
Possible NDE because it is hard to tell which of the experiences happened at the time of death or unconsciousness.

3671.  Marisol S NDE  5/10/14  From Australia.  I was surrounded by black endless space all around me. I stopped flying forward when I realized I was in a different place other than earth. I looked up, there was endless space above like it went on for eternity. I looked down and the black endless space went on forever. I looked left and right and it was the same thing. I wasn't scared at all. Then I looked at my hands, I didn't have any hands all I could see was not my body but the outline of my body and hands. It was all the colors of the rainbow in stripes or red, yellow, green, blue, purple etc. Then I said to myself "f$&@ this I'm not staying here!"
NDE due to accidental overdose of heroin.  Apparently given Narcan which is a medication that rapidly reversed the action of narcotics (like heroin) on the body. 

3670.  Rachel R NDE  5/10/14  After experiencing a period of time that I was in complete darkness and only felt myself being pulled through buoyant barriers, I came upon an opening.  I then was greeted by 5-10 golden "orbs" which I felt I knew and it was like a "reunion".  It was the most joy and ecstasy I had ever felt when they greeted me.  I knew them within.  One orb approached me and showed me that I was the same when it combined with me I realized that I was also a golden orb.  I was then pulled back and even more quickly than I had gotten to this other world, I was back in my body.
NDE due to being hit by car as pedestrian.

3669.  Gail A NDE  5/10/14 I was aware that I could communicate without speaking and that I could know all that I wanted to know. There was a feeling of peace and calm, unlike anything I've experienced since. Then came a judgment of sorts, where I was judged on the things I had done and the things I would do in my future life. This upset me as I felt it was mean to punish or judge me for things I hadn't done yet. I wasn't judged on big things, more small instances of intent. It was the little things that mattered and not the big things. Then I was told that I had to go back, which didn't make me happy at all as I knew that being alive would hurt.
NDE due to criminal attack at age 14.

3668.  Ray NDE  5/10/14 From Saudi Arabia.  I had a dark view of what's across the street from me despite the bright lights. I saw bright colors and parts of my life in less than a second.
Struck by car at age 9.

3667.  Domi L Probable NDE  5/5/14 From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.  I left into the tunnel of light, I had no body. I was in a well-being, as such is not existing on earth, I had no sentiment nor past. On the other side of the tunnel I felt millions of presences, that also had no sentiments, but that were feeling neither bad nor good, they didn't know evil anymore. On the other hand, I didn't see any animals. Then I was stopped by the superior Power telling me (by telepathy) that I was lacking something, and that I should protect it. I knew that I had to do what I was told and even if I wanted or not go further, I had no choice than to follow what I was called upon to do.
Probable NDE from an auto accident.

3666.  Robyn F NDE  5/3/14 GRAPHIC CONTENT.  During the hour I had been praying, "Please Dear God, Let this cup pass from me...No one is coming to save me, no one heard me scream, no one..." It was at this point that I "knew" I was in two places at the same time. I left my body and passed through a tunnel of light which took me to a door of brilliant light. The door opened. I knelt down (and saw that I was dressed in a dark robe of some sort). As I knelt I looked up to see Jesus in front of me nailed to the cross. He looked down directly into my eyes. I've never seen eyes like those before or since. As he looked into my eyes I asked him, without speaking words, "What do I do?" He answered without speaking words, "Forgive him." As he "said" the words it was done. The forgiveness happened in that very instant. I was returned fully to my body in the bathroom but everything had changed, and I knew this.
Exceptional NDE due to brutal murder attempt by husband she was going to divorce.  Remarkable communication with Jesus that saved her life. 

3665.  Lesley H Possible NDE  5/3/14 When I arrived at one of the doorways an official looking man asked me if I knew I had died.  I felt surprised at first.  Then I recognized that I had died but was not fearful.  He asked me what I wanted to do and that's what I remember most significantly; that I actually had a choice; a concept I had never contemplated in every day life. He told me if I wanted more life I could go back but if I wanted to pass over and go through the doorway I could and I knew that this would be joyous and eternal but I already knew it would also be there forever, whenever I decided to go. I felt immensely comforted with the knowledge that this afterlife would always be there so I decided to go back to the quirky little life on earth which I hadn't yet had enough of, safe in the knowledge this beautiful afterlife would always be there after death.
Dream vs NDE at time of hospitalization with life-threatening pneumonia.

3664.  Ryan F Probable FDE  5/3/14 I lost control and the car started rolling a couple times, going sideways into a field. All I can remember is floating above both myself and my girlfriend as if watching a scene from a movie, rather than being involved in the accident. It was brief and as the car came to a halt in a nearby field, I was back in my body again, looking over at my girlfriend. I have been in other accidents and have not experienced this before. I was literally watching the scene unfold as if I were glued to the inside roof of the vehicle.
Probable Fear-Death Experience vs Possible NDE due to car accident at age 16.

3663.  Francis G NDE  5/3/14 There was a white light. But like a strong magnet, I was pulled up to the light as it got bigger.  Then I was surrounded by stars and lights.  The sounds, smells, and the sights where amazing, like trying to explain what a banana tastes like to someone who never eaten one.  I was knocking on the gates of heaven, only I could NOT get in.  A spirit told me that it was not my time because I had to do beautiful things and help mankind and nature.  I argued with that energy, told him/her/it that my body was mangled.  How am I going to do anything with such damaged body?
NDE due to accident on motorcycle.

3662.  Angelo NDE  4/30/14  From Spain.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana.    I was watching myself as if I were floating above the hospital bed, observing myself and the doctors below. I was aware of experiencing vague memories about my life—but nothing concrete. It was like a very quick movie. I also noted that I was entering a place that seemed to be something like a tunnel. I didn't feel scared at all, on the contrary, I felt very peaceful. In fact, I felt so well that I didn't want to come back!
NDE from surgery complications—allergic anaphylactic shock reaction to penicillin.

3661.  Jiří H NDE  4/30/14  From the Czech Republic.  Original in Czech, translated to English by Rick.  I found myself standing in a meadow or in a field, slightly to my right was a clump of trees, a smaller forest and it was rather far away. It was beautiful, sun shining (I did not see it directly but I felt and perceived it), summer, to my left were two deer, a larger one and smaller one. The clump of trees seemed to me very enticing and I had a very pleasant feeling,  I had a great desire to go to that clump of trees and I had the feeling that doing so would solve at lot of things and rid me of my troubles, but it did not seem fair to me and cop-out to give up on what was still ahead of me (in life).  And concerning that I remembered one girl who I was attracted to and I wanted to return to her, it seemed to me to be unresolved with her. The eye of that deer played a significant role but I cannot manage to remember. Somehow I knew that once I got to the clump of trees there was no return from there.
NDE from a fall.

3660.  Muhammad E Possible NDE  4/29/14  Non-Western from Iran.  Original in Farsi, translated to English by Shadi.    All around me was movement. There was another light coming, in front of me lower than the roof coming though the wall exactly where the entities were standing but all of a sudden the bright light ended. And the entities spoke again telling me to not take anymore breaths we want to take you with us.  I again stopped my breathing and the entities appeared again. This time I felt light and I saw myself as the bright light. I was floating up towards the tunnel of light. I heard voices of entities who were calling me. A lift appeared in the room and two entities came out of the lift. All the light ended and the tunnel was no longer.
Possible NDE from sleep apnea.

3659.  Nicolas F NDE  4/29/14  From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.  The 'kind' people being there, talked to me in a kind of telepathy, a transmission of thought. Besides, about what did they talk? of nothing special, of an absolute knowledge. I had the impression that they were the past, the present and the future, as if they were a being, much bigger, than we would want to imagine. Nothing to do with any kind of mystical, I'm believing but I'm not practicing since many years. And then there is this famous light, this attraction towards this absolute gentleness. As if  you would look at the sun without being dazzled, and you could see beyond the sun, as if looking through it. During this horizontal movement, I was never at the level of the people surrounding me, I was above them, very slightly, I would say some 50 centimeters. They didn't look at the light, they were there, along my way.
NDE from surgery complications.

3658.  Carolane B NDE  4/27/14  From Belgium.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.  There was no sound around me, all was calm but I wasn't scared, I felt good. It was as if I was sleeping, but being aware of everything. And there I heard crying, I figured out that it was my little sisters that were crying, but I didn't feel any  sorrow. And then I heard a voice that told me " You have to open your eyes, go on try". I could think, hear, but it was as if I couldn't control my body anymore, only my mind.
Child NDE from a fall.

3657.  Luce NDE  4/27/14  From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy.  I was still falling and falling until the moment when I saw a strong light. At once I felt appeased. I headed for this light and heard my first name called several times. This call came from elsewhere not from the place where I was (this white tunnel). I didn't know what to do and all at once I felt like returning heavily into my body, as just before I was feeling very  light.
NDE from going unconscious.

3656.  Amanda NDE  4/26/14  saw my body and my mother coming into the room and calling me by my name and then screaming at me to wake up while grabbing me by my shoulders. I was in so much peace at the moment I felt the disturbing voice of my mother much higher than her normal voice. Extremely disturbing! She left the room crying and screaming my uncle’s name, I saw him walking into the room and carrying me out of the house. Last I saw my feet dangling in the air while being in the arms of my uncle and mother.  From this moment on... I experienced a dark tunnel with flashes of neon lights of all colors where I was traveling full speed in a form of a tornado. At the end I saw a white bright light as I got closer it got wider. All of a sudden, I was in a standing position surrounded by the most beautiful place I have ever seen, the peace, grass, trees and a very beautiful music and laughter coming from somewhere. 
NDE due to accidental narcotic medication ingestion at age 14.

3655.  Hannah F NDE  4/26/14 The next thing I recall is sitting on a massive stone talking to a man. There was a waterfall in front of us and beautiful scenery. I would probably call it a beautiful garden however everything was natural. I remember a feeling of love and reassurance. I don't remember what the man was telling me about but he was speaking for a long time. It felt like hours. I remember being shocked at a few things he said. Now, in my experience I was ME but i wasn't "HANNAH". I knew myself but not as Hannah. I don't remember what was spoken but I remember the feelings I felt. All I remember him saying was, "it's time to go back now."
NDE due to fainting at age 16.

3654.  Micella NDE  4/26/14 I had the most amazingly peaceful dream. I was in a field of tall grass and was with a young person of around 5 to 10 years old. We were ""playing"" although I am not sure what the game was. I kept telling the young person that I had to go back, to which he/she (unsure of gender) would respond please stay a little longer. The idea of staying longer was a peaceful one and the being was not upset at my protest to go. However, it continued to encourage me to stay a little longer. The pastoral scene was so pleasant it perhaps was difficult to leave. I remember I just knew that I had to return back though as it was not my time or that I had unfinished business in the other place. Soon I heard my name being called, which was my auditory senses returning from unconsciousness and I awakened to many people gathered around me.
NDE due to syncopal episode at age 17.

3653.  Michael DP NDE  4/26/14   From India.  Then there was peace, a very strong sense of peace and awareness of death.  I started moving upwards and away from my body.  I hardly move a few feet when I saw my sister in the next room reaching out to switch off the fan.  I saw her through an opening which connected the two rooms but that view was not possible from where my body was stuck.  As soon as she switched off the fan, I was again in my body for maybe 2 seconds before I lost all consciousness. 
Non-Western NDE from India.  NDE due to electrocution at age 10.

3652.  James A NDE  4/26/14 I had a conversation with this feint pull of energy on my right side. I could feel in my heart that it didn't force anything on me. It was there because it's a natural reaction to the situation. It felt so intimate, I could sense that this entity understood me. It was gentle awareness, slightly apathetic too. This whole conversation didn't occur in words. But it made it known that it wouldn't be deciding and it would be my choice if I died or not.  I felt so scared, I didn't want to die. Before this experience I was numb and bitter, like a zombie but now I felt that previous passion for life I had younger. This passion emerged as fear. This entity's personal desire was for me to come with it... or that's what it felt like. Like a magnet slowly pulling something to it.  I expressed a desire (automatically)to ""just see how things are down there""... My eyes opened briefly as soon as this happened.. I was slightly out of my body floating like an orb, it was so peaceful, the foggy green of the water, the mixture of warmth and coolness.
NDE due to drowning at age 17.  From Australia, and experience happened only three months ago.

3651.  Kate NDE  4/26/14 Vacuum like feeling. Sucked into field of unearthly brilliant color with large tree to my right in the distance and feeling of a nonhuman escort like companion on my left. Feeling that I did not have to worry about my children or anything I was leaving behind. All would be well. All was well and good; but then, knowledge that I could not stay. Darkness - no time- then once again feeling of being thrown or sucked into this field of brightness, peace and knowledge. Walking once again through the field with the beautiful tree on my distant right and companion/escort on near left. Happy to be back only to feel the knowledge that I had to go back again and could not stay - I had work to do. --No feeling of time.
NDE due to bleeding after caesarian section delivery.

3650.  Tracy S Possible NDE  4/26/14 The next thing I remember I felt that I was laying face up floating beyond the hospital ceiling light. There was extremely bright light everywhere that was warm. I slid backwards a little until it seemed my face was right against the ceiling lights. I was still face up (like floating in a pool) and looked down at myself in the bed. I looked down and to the right and saw my doctor at the stand beside my bed writing in my file & checking my IV. I tried to speak to him or wave to him to get his attention but nothing worked. I kept trying but at the same time I was floating down backward "into my body".
Probable anesthesia experience vs possible NDE following delivery with much blood loss.

3649.  Rebekah J NDE  4/26/14 I saw the most beautiful colors like a swirling rainbow tunnel. It was so bright. I saw shadowy figures like angels. I heard a voice. It was all around me. I do not know if it was male or female. It said you have a choice, you can continue on or go back. I thought for a moment then I thought. I want to grow up and my parents would miss me. The sense of peace and tranquility was overwhelming but I chose to go back.
NDE at age 12 due to drowning.

3648.  Patrice S Probable NDE  4/26/14 I was 5 years of age. I was in a blizzard. I was hit by a drunk driver. I was on the operating table. I quickly was up over my body looking over my body watching the operating room doctors work on my body. I was next to a presence in which I believe was God. I was told by my mother I was screaming in the operating room. I was at peace happy and calm with God. I was told I was to young to go back.
Probable NDE at age 5 during surgery, and later in life encounter with Virgin Mary.

3647.  Monique B NDE  4/26/14  From France.  Original in French, translated to English by Marguy. At the third arrest I 'left' and found myself being in a landscape "type David Hamilton", rosy, golden, soft, pleasant and I was walking on clouds. A situation so very comfortable that I remember thinking "If this is being dead, it's really good." I continued to advance on the clouds in this cozy setting; to my surprise after about some moments I met a white bright silhouette (an angel, the blessed virgin?) who "talked" to me saying "you have to return, your son (of 7 years at that time) needs you."
NDE from going unconscious.

3646.  Teresa P NDE  4/26/14 From Mexico.  Original in Spanish, translated to English by Adriana.  I felt abandoning my body through the same opening where I had bumped my head, I got out, I didn’t even stopped to look back.  I didn’t look at anything in the room.  I simply elevated in a diagonal line towards a light that I saw. I felt great peace, happiness, vital force, health, harmony and a great expansion.  There was nothing like gravity.  The light was there and I had to reach it.  A soft breeze, it was the ideal weather, that breeze caressed me.  I felt like flying, I floated lightly, then I began to listen to voices coming from this light.  They were very happy, very happy repeating: ‘There comes Tere! There comes Tere!'
NDE from a fall and going unconscious.

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.

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.

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.
