Since I had previously told MARDAV70 that I would share my own near-death-experience once a thread was started on this subject, I am now fulfilling my part of that agreement since MARDAV70 has indeed started a near-death-experience thread.

In my early 20s, I was in an "irreversible coma" for three days during which I was finally taken off life support since there was no hope of recovery and, in the unlikely event of a recovery, doctors had told my family that there would be significant brain damage and organ damage.

In that state, I could see my body from afar as well as doctors, nurses, family members near my bedside, and the Roman Catholic priest administering the last rites. I could also clearly see my brother and sister down the hallway and could describe accurately what they were wearing despite the fact that they never entered the room. From afar, I was very aware of what was transpiring both locally and non-locally. There were no spatial limitations or physical barriers that could not be transcended simply by shifting attention.

There was also an unfathomable peace that can not be described. Before me, I could clearly see a cross-legged being of light whose facial features I could not make out but who radiated peace and contentment. I was perfectly content to stay in this peaceful place with this cross-legged being. (Paradoxically, coming from a Roman Catholic background, I had no prior exposure to eastern meditation or eastern practices so this appearance was quite alien to my background at that particular time.)

Without words, it became clear that it was not yet time to leave the earthly plane as there was more work to be done there. There were absolutely no concerns about the physical vehicle as my attention shifted to the lifeless body below. The life-force consciously re-entered the body and I sat up SYMPTOM FREE and said, "I'm hungry and want to go home". The doctors had no explanation as I excitedly related the details of my adventure from which I had emerged completely symptom-free. I was completely lucid and not the least bit groggy or indisposed.

Since that time, there has been no fear of death and I now view death as a non-event. I discovered that the worldly appearance is not what it appears to be and got a lot of insight into the nature of life, health, and the mysteries of life and death. The appearance of the cross-legged being triggered an intense spiritual quest away from my unsatisfying religious tradition and into eastern practices. This culminated in realizing the value in all traditions with some being more direct than others and some being more appropriate than others for different temperaments. Along the pathless path of the spiritual quest, I was blessed to have had many very special companions on the journey to lighten the way and enlighten.

As for the cross-legged being of light, that "vision" was completely misunderstood by me and it was only years later that I finally realized what that was all about. Some of you might intuitively sense what happened but it was not evident to me for years.

Lastly, how I got into that state is another story for another time and one that is not really relevant to this discussion. I am mentioning this because I am not inclined to address questions on that subject at this time.

Thanks for sharing your NDE, Still Waters...I've been waiting for this. Very similar to mine...except I saw no other beings. Yet, like you, learning I had to return to this life seemed to come from within.
I's wonderful you've returned to health with no ill effects and are able to share your story!
Incredible...the things we sense in the NDE and come back to tell about are many, many times nearly identical. Knowing that there is no such thing as "death" and no fear of it, that the reality of existence is in that other dimension/place. And many times returning to a completely healed body.
The day I woke up in ICCU after my heart attack, I felt great. I never gave a second thought that I'd been through a heart attack. I couldn't wait to get the heck out of that hospital and get all those tubes and wires out and off of me...lol...! And I felt like I was 18 (in reality I was 58) and gained an interest in researching many things (NDEs, spirituality, astronomy, ancient history and civilizations, alchemy...just to name a few). I had some interest in most of those before, but had a new zeal to research them. Also, a new found interest in physics. I couldn't wait to get home and do research, and so I did.

Again, thanks for sharing, Still Waters.

You may be interested in this NDE testimony from a caller on C to Coast. He had 3 NDEs and mentions the Light Beings.

The comments are also interesting to read:

Hello


Here is my story, as its a bit different in that it as a "lesson" event for me that chance to change a life path that I was on. I have met many that have had NDE experiences, and they are always so interesting to see what one's experience.







I thought I would take the time to share my NDE what happened what I felt and what resonates in me still from it. I was 21 years old and was over at to girlfriends for her Birthday. There has been no alcohol served for her Birthday. It was raining and was leaving to go home; I left out the back door. I remember being at the top of the porch stairs and then at the bottom on the cement sidewalk. They were grey painted stairs and I slipped on the first one and went face first down all 18 of them. I bounced off each stair as I bruised many ribs and hit chin first on the sidewalk. I opened me chin up wide and I shattered all me teeth.

That is where the NDE starts to come into play. I remember LOOKING down at me lying in a pool of blood and teeth bits everywhere. I was not in the body lying there. I was very much above it looking down. What did I experience out of the body….that is something deeply personal but I will open to share it here. (I have on NDE ONLY sites and at live events). I remember a spiral of stars spinning around me head, moving upwards. Much like one see’s in the older cartoons. I felt no pain, and I remember clearly not going into the tunnel like many describe but meeting with me Guide’s. At that time in life I was not on the best of paths, and I was playing in the “darker” side of one’s abilities. I had been given “LESSONS” to show me that was wrong but I was not hearing them. Looking back they are clear as day, but then it was not understood. That night me girlfriend and I had done some work….and well I guess I had gone too far this time. I was given a very hard lesson and a harder choice to make. I remember being told by me Guide’s I would be given a chance to change that path I was on to start to use what I was given for the “GOOD” and I would be able to come back into the body. If I was not willing to change then I would be gone for good. It was made very clear that if I did not change those patterns in life the next time would be firm and final. I remember yelling out “I will not blackout” and I came back in.

I remember from there bits and pieces of what happened next. No ambulance was called for me; I was loaded into their station wagon and dropped at the ER for them to vanish……NO ONE stayed with me. Their fear was being sued and a longtime friend left me is there alone. Home was called but me Mom and Dad were out of town at the time and me boyfriend (whom I lived with) was having boys night out. I was stitched up and x rayed (found nothing at that time) and how I got home to this day I have no clue. Next I remember I was home….and me mate came in with and went OMG what in the World happened.

The next AM I got up and somehow (again I don’t remember doing this) got all the way downtown on the bus to see the dentist. WHO called home worried on me and me mate picked me up. At that time there was nothing he could do for me til swelling went down some. I was taken home. Work was called that Monday and as I was a receptionist I was told to stay home til the face bruises were gone. Honestly I am told I looked like I had been beaten and assaulted. I do not recall what I looked like.

It was 6 months later that finally a DR. would hear me and understands that I had something more going on. I still had not been able to start dental work as the jaw was fused shut all on its own. I could not lay down flat without blacking out. I was told it was simply in the brain and it was all traumas from the fall I had. I simply was put on med’s. I finally got in to see a replacement DR. that ordered an MRI for me right away. Feeling that since I seemed to have little to no memory of the fall there might be something more there. HE was so right. That is when they found a fracture in C4 and the jaw. They found hairline fractures in the ribs and breastbone that had healed. I was sent to see a specialist whom said that thing were healing and that taking it easy like I had been doing and not lying flat had aided in that . Sent me for physiotherapy to get me mouth open to get the teeth fixed and to keep the neck in motion. A year later I finally got the dental work started I again do not remember dealing with teeth with full root exposures and being able to eat. (Though everything went in a blender) and up a stray.

I had two incidents where I froze on “Grey stairs” leaving a building in a fire drill. I had to be physically carried down them. I was that panicked. That is when Post Traumatic Stress was just starting to be understood I too was sent to see a psychiatrist, the first one said repressed childhood abuse (I almost had to hold me mate down as that was SO not me Dad) and we left. To go to one that did regressions. I was regressed to that event. Take to the top of the stairs and I fell again. Controlled and safe I hit the bottom and I found that I yelled out “I am not going to die”. That is where I learned of the conversation I had with me Guides, the stars, the seeing the body there. I was then sent by that DR for an MRI on the heart….as he felt more had happened. Sure enough it showed damage. That I had heart failure and an NDE event so that is why so much was a blank I went into SELF protection mode.

What did happen is that as I was laid up basically in bed for three months I did change what I was into. As none of that group I was with ever entered me home I was left behind. In that time I was given that chance to change. That chance to see the value of life. To understand how close I came to death or being paralyzed for life. I had always worked as a volunteer with special needs children and adults BUT I lacked that compassion in understandings. I now had that with me. I could feel the empathy for their struggles. I changed that “dark” path I was on for a path in the “light”. While I know and I fully embrace that the darkness that I travelled in and I never did anything morally unforgiving, it did make me whom I am today. It gave to me the understandings to be able to help those if called to do so on that dark path in life as I know that well.

Thanks so much for sharing your fascinating story, Lynn. What a horrific experience your fall must have been. But despite that, the change within you is a light for us all. While I know and I fully embrace that the darkness that I travelled in and I never did anything morally unforgiving, it did make me whom I am today. Says so much, and affirms for me there is no such thing as punishment or such a place as hell. We simply have a "reset" of our inner being/consciousness when we cross over. I found that when I had my NDE. I rejected Christ and Christianity..."unforgivable sin number 1". I'm gay..."unforgivable sin number 2". Yet my experience was so incredibly wonderful I didn't want to return to this existence, yet what I learned was forgiveness and love, first of self, and then all others that follows...the Golden Rule...is what truly matters.

Namaste, dear spirit.

I too want to thank Lynn for sharing her compelling story. I was fortunate that I did not have to go through the horrific after-effects that she experienced but it seems to have made Lynn a stronger person.

It's not surprising that experiences like this are life-transforming in many ways.

Thanks again for sharing, Lynn.

Like yourself, MARDAV70, the NDE triggered an intense interest in researching many things (other NDEs, spirituality, etc.) with a marked shift towards eastern practices spurred on by the unforgettable appearance of the mysterious cross-legged being of light projected before me during the NDE. The NDE was the catalyst for making the spiritual quest the top priority in life since it was now clear that the worldly appearance was most assuredly not what it appeared to be.

It seems as if indeed there's an awakening of consciousness happening. With the internet it's so much easier to come in contact with like minded individuals, to be able to share our experiences. Comparing notes and finding all that has commonality is affirmation which further opens our eyes...!

Native Spirit, It is a miracle to have one NDE but 3 is beyond a miracle, it is a calling. You must have an important mission to accomplish with your current incarnation. Good luck in fulfilling that.

Lynn, your story is heartening and very tragic and full of hope all at the same time. Thank you for sharing with us
