Before the first event, I complained of being very tired and sleepy. I was at that time, April 1991, working at the Operating Room in a hospital. At a certain moment, the professor looked at me and said, 'Peter, you look so white'. I answered him: 'Yes, prof, I am just very, very tired'. He told me, to go to the coffee room off the operating room, drink a coffee, and come back. These were the last words. I never, in my entire life, fell asleep as nicely as during that time. I felt no weight, was going wherever I wanted and there were beautiful white clouds of which I'd never seen. The feeling was amazing; it looked like freedom. Then at a certain moment, I saw a face and a body in very nice white clothes, a fresh face with black half-short hair, which started talking to me. I don't know if it is male or female, but it very friendly. This person told me, 'You have to go back, because you need to do a lot for the people, it is not yet time to come here.' Then I immediately turned around, and I wake up on an Intensive Care Unit bed with all IV's, Electro Cardio Gram machines and a number of doctors around me who said, 'Welcome back, Peter, we thought we had lost you. You were gone for 20 minutes.' The first thing I did was to feel my body. It was very strange to have a body, which I had never experienced before the happening. Since that time, I know there is no death. Because of my job flying an average over 350 flights a year, I am totally not afraid of death. I feel the person I saw, was one of the masters who guide our planet Earth. My second experience was just recently. As my wife and I went to bed, I told her, 'my heart is beating not in the way it should'. (Note: I had 6 cardio bypass surgeries in 2009 and was under the care of a Cardiologist.) As my study is in the medical realm, I do understand what was going happening. I told my wife, that if I did not wake up, she knows what to do. My heart kept going strange but I fell asleep. This time, it was different. When I woke up, the next day, in the afternoon, my wife was still sitting next to me and told me I did not react to anything and she was at the point of calling my colleagues: a few doctors. When I woke up, I remember that I saw a violet fire from my heart. Inside was a grey door, which I went through. I saw a kind of a small tunnel with a very intense strong white light where there was another door, as well. I opened it, and came into a place that was so beautiful: I had never seen such beauty! The mountains, the kind of trees, flowers, so fine from their structure to the colors: 'I never saw these colors before and cannot express it'. The small river with such clear fine water, I'd never, ever seen in my life. Then, I was in a car with three people, who were a bit bigger than we are. Again, I had never seen the car before, not even in Sci-Fi movies. The form and colors, again, I'd never seen and can't express. We parked the car, they left the doors unlocked, and windows open. I asked, 'You don't close it?' Whereas they said, 'Peter here we don't need this', they laughed kindly. We then crossed the road and entered into a hotel or building, again, the structure, form, beautiful wood, with a structure I can't explain that was so fine and precise. After a while, they told me they had to go and I should go back, because they said, 'You, also, still need to accomplish your mission'. I returned through the same way from which I came. After telling this to my wife, she was astonished. I also discussed it with some friends who are closer to the other world than me, and they stated: 'it is you were in another world, out of your body'. The same day I checked my heart by Electro Cardio Gram, and they found rare things, which they cannot explain until now. This was last May, 2013.

God, Spiritual and Religion:
What importance did you place on your religious/spiritual life prior to your experience? Greatly important to me
What was your religion prior to your experience? Christian- Catholic I have always thought from when I was very young, that all the masters are in another world guiding us. To me I love Jesus, Mary, GOD. I practise prayers and talks everyday twice. I respect and admire Lord Guatama Buuddha, Krisna, and Profet mohamed, although he is not a master as Jesus, etc. They hand us messages what is very good to stop the duality in people and try to learn us about our selfconsiouness, our true: I am. Through their messages we all should bring this beautiful planet to a higher energy form, peace. May GOD bless us all.
Have your religious practices changed since your experience? No
What importance do you place on your religious/spiritual life after your experience? Greatly important to me
What is your religion now? Other or several faiths As above mentioned, I see as I always have throught, the masters are all great ascended masters, directly from GOD, as we can see their eternal love for everyone on this planet. GOD's love is entermity, but he gave us a free wil,whereas we have to learn in each life. He wil not break his own law with that. This is why GOD know some can rebelate against it, but therefore the law of the universe: action is reaction, but all for us to learn. To me, as said, I believe in all layers above us for spiritual growth to come close to GOD. Let us be aware of the fact that GOD wants all his sons and daugthers to be with him.
Did your experience include features consistent with your earthly beliefs? Content that was entirely consistent with the beliefs you had at the time of your experience I have from young believed that all comes and is the same whatever religion. It has been proved to be so. Therefore I see, Jesus, etc as the masters who were transcended and ascended to guide us into a higher spritual way, to help to bring the "golden age" here by supporting the good selfconsiouness and defeat the duality.
