Almost Went to Heaven

I am writing about my husband's NDE as he related it to me. He had a severe stroke which left him with many handicaps and unable to return to work. As soon as I was able to see him in the hospital room, he told me that he almost went to heaven.

He went through a tunnel and to a light so bright that he needed shades, but the light did not hurt his eyes. Things were shiny and glistening. God talked to him. His voice was loud like thunder. He was huge and behind a cloud. He said he learned that God was the universe. He is love and never ending. He is in every blade of grass. It was calm and peaceful.

He told my husband that he had to go back; his work wasn't finished. He was told God sends us people to help us get to heaven, a handle to God. He told me there were several levels; he was on the brightest level. Below are darker and darker levels. He told me he was in an in between place, "the other side," and people were around him in white gowns, like sitting on a train. He saw his brother-in-law that passed away about a year before.

Before this experience, my husband was unsure of an afterlife and cussed a lot. Afterwards, he never cussed again. When he got angry, he would say cuss, cuss. He told his daughter, "Jesus sits on the right hand of God." He never would have talked this way before. He was different. He didn't like violent movies, liked different foods, and was very loving and patient despite his handicaps.

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.
