Did you see an unearthly light? No I only saw the operating room light from above my body when I was with God looking down at the operating room light. I never saw a light, I just went up.
Did you seem to enter some other, unearthly world? A clearly mystical or unearthly realm I was in a realm with God that I can't describe really because it was all more transparent, and I was just above my body with him.
Did you suddenly seem to understand everything? No
Did scenes from the future come to you? Scenes from the world's future I didn't at that time. I have had predictive dreams of my own situations that would occur.
God, Spiritual and Religion:
What was your religion prior to your experience? No Response Roman Catholic
What is your religion now? No Response Roman Catholic
Did you have a change in your values and beliefs because of your experience? Yes I have a strong belief in God now.
Did you believe in the existence of God prior to your experience? Believed God probably exists
Do you believe in the existence of God after your experience? Absolutely
Concerning our Earthly lives other than Religion:
During your experience, did you gain special knowledge or information about your purpose? Yes God exists. God judges us all. I have come to the conclusion, after looking back at my experience, that there is a heaven, a hell and limbo. God chooses where we go. I had no choice in the matter. I was sent back. I don't know if I actually lifted myself out of my body to heaven, and that is why I was told I was too young and to go back, or if I was lifted. I just know it was quick when I was looking over my body. I guess out of all of it, I wonder if I left on my own accord due to all the pain, or if I was taken up. The only things I do know are that I was there and that God said that I was too young and to go back.

After the NDE:
Was the experience difficult to express in words? No
Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience? Yes Predictive dreams that involve my own life, which do not occur all the time. They are rare.
Have you ever shared this experience with others? Yes I used to keep it secret. Only a few close family members would know. I came across social media and the hatred toward God disgusted me and I felt a need to defend God and tell that he is real and he exists.
What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened? Experience was definitely real It was real because I experienced everything as if I were experiencing life. Now, the difference was that I was in a different realm, not my body, and I was with God. There was more peace, calm and happiness.
At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience? No
Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? God is real. This is not an experiment. There should be just a showcase of real cases.
Are there any other questions that we could ask to help you communicate your experience? The deceased section should also ask where you with God or other form of life because it starts out as deceased and I was not with a deceased person but I was with God
