Blue Light

I feel guilty because my NDE doesn’t affect me as it used to. In 1998 I didn’t know I was pregnant. I was kneed in the stomach by my former husband. We had three kids already and an okay friendship. I had an entopic pregnancy -- was rushed to the hospital in searing pain, screaming in emergency.

I exploded from every orifice and my blood pressure went way down. I was being asphyxiated by 2.5 liters of blood in my abdomen; it crushed my lungs and I couldn't move. My brain took me on a "pain journey" where I was taken away from the pain and visited a huge brown paddock and a miniature mythical Greek creature. He was my only company and told me he was “death, my only friend.”

The doctors slapped me, which woke me up and said they were taking me to emergency. They slid me onto the table and put the mask on my face. I pulled off the mask and shouted “everybody do a great job!” They then operated. I was under for three hours but it could have been three thousand years. My perception of time was gone. On the “other side” I raced down a dark tunnel. I couldn’t see the sides but I knew there was a tunnel. I was falling fast but traveling straight ahead. I was scared but at last started to slow down.

At that moment I knew the answers to everything – EVERYTHING. There was no time. I was surrounded by loving spirits who knew EVERYTHING about me and yet they accepted me and the love in my heart; they wanted to protect me. I'm not sure who they were. They were blue lights in the tunnel. The big blue light with white around it came towards me. It wanted me. I wanted very, very much to go to it. It loved me completely and cradled me in my feelings. It wanted me to come across the space that divided us. I wanted to come and felt pulled like a magnet.

I fell back into death but then I woke up two days later -- ALIVE in ICU. I opened my left eye and saw a butterfly and thought I was dead in heaven. It took a while for me to accept I was alive again. This is a shortened, honest account of what happened to me in October 1998.

The Light Within

My father had died a few months before. We had a many issues between us, and it was very difficult to let him go. I refused to leave his side while he was dying, as if to make up for all the things that happened while he was alive.After his death I experienced grief. Wow, I never knew it would feel like that! I forgot how to do my job or relate to other people. I had a hard time acting and feeling normal, but I managed to get by.

Everything is Love

One evening, I was talking with a friend on the phone who knew that I was interested in exploring different spiritual practices and religions. He said, "Hey, you should check out a Society of Friends meeting. They don't have any sermons and just meditate for an hour or so together." I was intrigued and after we hung up I looked them up on the Internet. I found out that they were what I knew as "the Quakers" and after only a few minutes of searching, came across a posting that explained a style of meditation they do called "Looking for the light within." I printed it out, took it to my bed and read what it said. It was very simple: Get into a comfortable position, close your eyes, focus your attention on the darkness and look for a light within. When you see a light, focus on it. So that's exactly what I did.

NDE in Pre-Term Labor

I was in the hospital with pre-term labor. The physician on duty administered turbutaline (brethine) intravenously. Within seconds, I didn't feel right, grew very hot and had barely said "Something doesn't feel right" when I blinked out of my normal version of consciousness and blinked into the void. The medication stopped my heart (I later learned). I was in a vast dark place that was quite peaceful. I wasn't sure where I was but knew that I was fully conscious and no longer in my body. I tried to wiggle my toes and fingers but discovered I had none. I knew I existed in only pure consciousness.
