NDEs near death experiences


In a recent video I looked at the story of the women who died for 27munutes. She was revived and when she became conscious she penned the message Its REAL
As always at the end of the video I asked if you guys wanted to see me dig a little deeper in to the topics from the video and you did.
I had a few comments asking for me to delve into NDEs near death experiences
So here goes
Let’s take a look


So what is a near death experience, well it as simple as the name implies. Someone dies when in terms of medical definition their heart stops beating and they are for all intense and purposes gone from this mortal coil, that is unless they come back.
Psychology today has a 14 point check list for these experiences of death it reads;
  • Ineffability: impossible to describe fully in words
  • Hearing someone pronounce you dying or dead
  • Pleasant feelings of joy and serenity
  • Odd noises—pleasant or unpleasant—e.g. buzzing or a loud ringing
  • Being pulled rapidly through a dark space or tunnel
  • Out of body experiences, seeing your body from outside it
  • Meeting helpful ‘spiritual beings’, sometimes acting as messengers (e.g. ‘It is not your turn to die’)
  • Being accompanied by an unimaginable ‘Being of brilliant light', often referred to as an angel, Jesus or God
  • Life review—rapid, highly charged, emotional, vivid and real, typically an educational effort on the part of the Being of Light; for instance, you may experience your actions—good and bad—as if you were the person they were done to
  • The border or limit, a ‘point-of-no-return’, described perhaps as a grey mist, water, a door, a fence or just a line
  • Coming back into your earthly body, willingly or not, most with lingering moods and emotions, many transformed into ‘better people’, in other words more spiritually mature
  • Telling others reluctantly, with reticence, for fear of disbelief and ridicule
  • Beneficial effects on people’s lives—profound and (despite the reticence) noticeable to others, you become more reflective, more gentle, with revised goals, accompanied by renewed determination to live according to new, higher values
  • New views of death, you are no longer fearful and have a much greater appreciation for the remaining period of life and what it is for, a learning process
So let’s have a look at a few of the most compelling NDEs.
Let’s begin with the story featured in the Huffington post from August of last year.
Alabama teenager Trenton McKinley, says he had visions of walking with God after suffering a traumatic brain injury which pushed him to the edge of death.
McKinley and his friend were playing on a dune buggy. McKinley was riding behind his friend, sitting in a utility trailer pulled by the buggy. The friend suddenly slammed on the brakes, causing the trailer to flip over and throwing McKinley onto the concrete, head first.
Rushed to the hospital with seven skull fractures the boy flat lined four times, including one instance that lasted 15 minutes.
McKinley was medically dead.
This is when he remembers walking through an open field with a shadowy, bearded figure during his near-death experience. The teen said the vision was proof to him that God is real.
 McKinley slowly recovered first he was able to move his hands and then his feet. Later on, he was able to open his eyes. The teen slowly began to heal ― recovering his memories and eventually shooting basketballs into a hoop at the hospital.
The one thing that has remained with the boy after his brush with death is the NDE he experienced, he now is certain that there is life after death.
February 2018 a woman known only as Heather, was in hospital for an operation this is when there was a problem with the anesthesia drip this problem caused her heart to stop.
She was dead for just under 3 minutes in this short time she reported flying about eight feet over her body. She was watching the scene below as the nurse scrambled through the cabinet looking for something.
She said she thought she was in a dream state until seeing the EKG and it was all flat lined and the alarms were ringing.
Heather says that she knew she was dying and tried to “dive back” into her body, but was instead sucked into a dark tunnel where she says that she found proof of God.
Heather said: “At the end of this tunnel was the most beautiful place in existence. I seemed to have arrived back in the room but in another dimension.
“I was looking at everyone and everything in that hospital through what I can only describe as 'through the eyes of God’. I felt the Love of God for all these people in the hospital.
“I began getting an information download. There was no talking, just information going into me with absolute love. It was very clear, very loud, and very certain, that we are ALL VERY IMPORTANT TO GOD.”
Heather then says she ended up in Heaven. Where she saw family members not by recognizing their appearance but instead she was seeing their souls.
The next moment she was jerked back into her body where she felt a doctor holding her hand.
So we have stories of a place that could be considered heaven but what about the other place, are there any reports of people seeing hell?
The short answer is yes, here is one man’s story.
In March 1992, Matthew Botsford walked out of a restaurant in Atlanta and right into the middle of a gun fight. He was struck in the back of the head by a 9mm bullet. A bullet to head not being good for one’s health, he had died.
 But unlike so many NDEs Matthew did not go to heaven he went to hell.
Matthew wrote in A Day in Hell, a retelling of what he experienced in the underworld during the 27-day coma that followed the shooting.
“Utter darkness enveloped me as if thick, black ink had been poured over my eyes.” He later described being “hung over an abyss” as heat blasted up from below. Pairs of demonic eyes crept toward him before a divine entity grabbed him by the waist and said, “It’s not your time.”
This story goes to show that stories of heaven and hell ring somewhat true with one out of five NDEs being frightening, traumatic, or “hellish” experiences.
So what does science have to say about NDEs?
In brief as there are many papers written on the subject which I could go through if I wanted to make a 3 hour a video, but I think you guys need that as much as you need NDE.
So in short recent research from June of this year says that Ketamine or other drugs/chemicals could play a part.
Near-death experiences could be caused by the natural release of brain chemicals at or near the end of life. Observers have noted the striking similarities between first-hand accounts of NDEs and the psychedelic experiences described by people who have taken mind-altering drugs.
Perhaps, near death, the brain naturally releases the same psychoactive substances as used by drug-takers, or substances that act on the same brain receptors as the drugs. It’s also notable that psychedelic drugs have been taken by the shamans through much of history as a way to, as they see it, visit the afterworld or speak with the dead.
If you would like to research this topic some more you can read “Consciousness and Cognition” an online analysis on the similarities between the psychological effects of certain drugs and near death experiences, it’s a bit too much for me to cover here.
Personally I don’t really care what the cause of these experiences is. This not because I have no faith or religion or that I doubt sciences ability to reveal the truth. It’s because I know like everyone else on this planet that one day, hopefully a long time from now, I will learn the truth as will you all.
What are your beliefs on NDEs and the afterlife, do you think there is a realm we transcend into upon death or is it just the black void of nothingness?
