I was clinically dead for twenty seven seconds. I was raising and there were plenty of people around me making faces. Then a huge hand took me and I went up at top speed. And there they told me: you have to pray for Isr'l. I'm believing, but not practicing. I woke up while still praying.By contrast in September 2012, I was half here and half up there. My grandson, who was with me at the time, called the fire brigade. I woke up at the hospital three hours later, having no memory of what happened. A Doppler encephalogram was made. Some psychiatrists or psychologists went and asked questions that I always answered correctly. I asked them what I had but they didn’t know.It is the third time that I experienced something similar but each time there is no memory of what happened. On the other hand, when I had my near death experience I remembered everything.I would like to know if there are other people who experienced the same thing. Do those people have memories about it? For me it's like a black hole.Why am I made to leave my body and why am I not able to control those absences? Who can help me with this?I do not understand why I have no memory each time I leave my body, but when I was clinically dead I remembered almost everything.
