Near-death experience or NDE
Near-death experience or NDE
This page will discuss near-death experience and what it is. For those who have never had one, will simply consider it as superstition or those who have endured it they could be considered a mad man. The reason for this page was, I was watching the series The OA over on netflix and I realized I had not done an NDE page, until now.
First let's begin with what an NDE is: wiki tells us:
A near-death experience (NDE) is a personal experience associated with death or impending death. Such experiences may encompass a variety of sensations including detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of a light.
Neuroscience research suggests that an NDE is a subjective phenomenon resulting from "disturbed bodily multisensory integration" that occurs during life-threatening events. NDEs are a recognized part of some transcendental and religious beliefs in an afterlife.
Although the features of NDEs vary from one case to the next, common traits that have been reported by NDErs are as follows:
A sense/awareness of being dead.
A sense of peace, well-being and painlessness. Positive emotions. A sense of removal from the world.
An out-of-body experience. A perception of one's body from an outside position. Sometimes observing medical professionals performing resuscitation efforts.
A "tunnel experience" or entering a darkness. A sense of moving up, or through, a passageway or staircase.
A rapid movement toward and/or sudden immersion in a powerful light (or "Being of Light") which communicates with the person.
An intense feeling of unconditional love and acceptance.
Encountering "Beings of Light", "Beings dressed in white", or similar. Also, the possibility of being reunited with deceased loved ones.
Receiving a life review, commonly referred to as "seeing one's life flash before one's eyes".
Receiving knowledge about one's life and the nature of the universe.
Approaching a border, or a decision by oneself or others to return to one's body, often accompanied by a reluctance to return.
Suddenly finding oneself back inside one's body.
Connection to the cultural beliefs held by the individual, which seem to dictate some of the phenomena experienced in the NDE and particularly the later interpretation thereof.
The NDE stages have been noted for their similarity to the so-called hero's journey in literature. Kenneth Ring (1980) subdivided the NDE on a five-stage continuum. The subdivisions were:
2. Body separation
3. Entering darkness
4. Seeing the light
5. Entering the light
He stated that 60% experienced stage 1 (feelings of peace and contentment), but only 10% experienced stage 5 ("entering the light").
Clinical circumstances associated with near-death experiences include cardiac arrest in myocardial infarction (clinical death); shock in postpartum loss of blood or in perioperative complications; septic or anaphylactic shock; electrocution; coma resulting from traumatic brain damage; intracerebral hemorrhage or cerebral infarction; attempted suicide; near-drowning or asphyxia; apnea; and serious depression. In contrast to common belief, Kenneth Ring argues that attempted suicides do not lead more often to unpleasant NDEs than unintended near-death situations.
While searching the net I found this helpful link
Beyond the Light by: P. M. H. Atwater On the site it mentions 17 cases mentioned in the person's book, upon which you'd have to purchase the book to read more. Of what I read they seem rather interesting.

feel free to search the net for even more links and cases as well as information pertaining to NDEs.
Now, another reason for this page, was that I too have had a few NDEs. Having had a rough childhood with trauma, I have endured a few NDEs all of which have been interesting. It's amazing that I can remember these but as for my life in general I cannot. The three times that trigged an NDE are: metal baseball bat to the base of the skull, nearly drowned and being pushed off a cliff.
Like the OA, I came back with “abilities”. Such as my link to the other side was stronger than it could/would have been without these moments, and I feel that when I came back my writing skills improved. For, every since the first NDE took place, I wanted to write, started out with simple poems, to short stories and then to novels.
Yes every NDE is different, and it's hard to talk to people about the afterlife that haven't ever had an NDE. For I KNOW what's on the other side whereas many just guess or speculate. I am the one who didn't see that bright light at the end of the tunnel on any of these cases, for me, I experienced a point of such peacefulness that when I came back I was crying from the sheer beauty of the peace, love, kindness, compassion and so forth. So many positive emotions. Each time I was told my job isn't done here yet and I was to go back, so I did.
In these NDE this is how I found I had two guardian angels, thankfully they are picky about being renamed since I never could pronounce their names to begin with, I also have one strong psychic link with the other side, I turned my time to being a spirit medium, that everywhere I go that is haunted I try to do my very best to get the spirits to move on and to face whatever is waiting for them on the other side. I can also sense things better, ask spirits questions for lost things and they tend to guide me where they are and I always listen to my gut feeling. When I ask a question, the first thing that appears in my head has always been the answer. I also have the ability to tell if someone is pregnant or not, see the true nature of their soul, and more. I don't charge for these services, I provide them freely once I am out and about in the world. I can't help it that the human realm isn't listening and/or paying attention, but at least I have the other side who understands me and doesn't mind a bit to strike up a conversation with me. Because, for them, they don't often realize they are dead and they cannot be seen like others could when they were alive. Not all souls will pass on and not all souls are good in nature. So I am always careful as should be anyone in this specialty.
In truth everyone has the ability to see ghosts when they are born, it could be our link to the other side we came from, there will also be a page provided for reincarnation, but if we are told that it's fake, that we don't see anything, take certain mental medications, ignore them, etc, the gift starts to weaken until it goes asleep of which one can wake that ability back up with some exercises, just not certain the strength level you'll become, but you can strength that as well.
Some who met me were family, some were guardians and some were just curious folks, never saw a face that I can remember, but I do remember the soothing words spoken to me, not in shouts, but kindness and understanding. It was like they knew what the future held for me and to prepare me that there are such people as this alive in the world, not all are evil with dark souls.
Provided is some helpful information I have found out while searching the net, feel free to search further, as this is just one corner of the net world on such a thing, there are several pages with hits leading back to NDEs, I hope that you have enjoyed the amount of research provided and feel free to question my sources and myself, you have the ability to contact me over on the left side of the page. As always thanks for visiting my site.
