It was around 5 pm on that day in October 2004 that I felt very tired. I asked myself ‘why do I feel like this?’ I wasn't doing anything different from the day before. My other self answered me and said, ‘Ramón you need to get some rest.’ When I lay down on the bed I felt as if an elephant was sitting on my chest, then I left my body. There appeared tunnels of light; at no point did I stop thinking or looking. Occasionally, I dodged around black spaces. (I think that when you leave your body you travel at incredible speed; this makes the stars pass by in a blur so I could see tunnels of light.) When I came to a stop, I was facing a person identical to me, though I did not believe that it was me. Instinctively, I went to him and embraced him. After 20 years in the garment business, I noticed he wore a white shirt and pants, and carried a sky-blue bag. I was aware that he was entirely energy. I wanted to see his face, but he no longer had a face. (I have come to understand that the light takes human form in order to assist us, because on arriving there we do not yet realize we are no longer human.) Next I wanted to go through the door of light, and he told me: I could not, I had to go back; so I let myself return for my daughter, Melissa. Before re-entering my body, I stopped in that place, people speak of, where there is peace and tranquility: next to the light which emerges as if from a tunnel. It was there that I thought I was going crazy, as I was surrounded by thousands and thousands of energies (spirits) like myself, all moving towards the place from where I was returning. I went over to the left and came upon another very big group of energies; from these one detached himself and went down on his knees, as if begging forgiveness from me. I did not recognize him, initially, (though later I did). From this immense gathering of energy is born a long line of energies (spirits) going towards and delivering themselves to where the light ended. When I approached this line, I did not like the feeling there. (It was like the feeling of having studied hard for an exam, and then failing it despite all the study.) I looked again at the place where I first arrived, and could still see thousands and thousands of energies appearing and disappearing, going towards the place from where I was returning. I wanted to go on looking because I wanted to understand what that place was. Then I felt myself being called. I entered through my head down as far as my feet. ‘In this life and the next, stay in the light, Ramón.’
Date NDE Occurred: octubre 2004
At the time of your experience, was there an associated life-threatening event? Uncertain 'Illness, trauma or other condition not considered life threatening'
I believe it was a wake-up call, but from a scientific point of view, I think it was a heart-attack.
How do you consider the content of your experience? Both pleasant AND distressing
The experience included: Out of body experience
Did you feel separated from your body? No
I clearly left my body and existed outside it
How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal everyday consciousness and alertness? Normal consciousness and alertness It's not so easy to answer, and the reason I say this is that I did not want to come back, I wanted to cross over. The light does not let you, so I realize that although you may think you are alert and conscious, the light is aware that you do not understand what's going on.
At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness? Throughout. The main problem is that we think we are dreaming, as it is an unknown mode of life for human beings, and the religions just confuse us.
Were your thoughts speeded up? No
Did time seem to speed up or slow down? Everything seemed to be happening at once; or time stopped or lost all meaning
Time does not exist there.
Were your senses more vivid than usual? Incredibly more vivid

Did you seem to enter some other, unearthly world? A clearly mystical or unearthly realm This is a place outside human understanding, something you do not expect to see in your lifetime.
The experience included: Strong emotional tone
What emotions did you feel during the experience? At first, curiosity at being in contact with the light; I felt normal, but on entering the place of peace and tranquility, where the light is equivalent to a torchlight, it was very lovely.

The experience included: Boundary
Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? Uncertain I don't really understand the question. I twice conversed with a being superior to us. Twice I saw people behind a wall, not physical bodies but their energies.

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? There are too many things. The reason I do this is that in one of my visions I clearly understood: ‘Ramón cannot come before he passes on his message’. Not in the experience, but afterwards, I had visionary episodes of being there before, then volunteering to come back. I also discovered who has crossed my path in other lives, and prevents me doing my work.
Are there any other questions that we could ask to help you communicate your experience? A lot of things occur to me. Religions have confused everything. I can see into origins of them all, even the strangest of cults. For this reason, I cannot make any other suggestions.
