Five-year-old girl drowns, was revived, and remembers many things from her time outside her body

You have all seen stories about people who have "near-death” experiences. I dislike the term near-death because to me and many other people who have gone to the “other side,” the experience is more accurately termed a "death” experience. I have had more than one "near-death” experience in my lifetime.

One is etched on my memory permanently. In terms of a “near” death experience versus a “death” experience, I remember very distinctly the feeling of having my soul leave my body. If that is not the act of dying, I do not know what is. My drowning experience happened the day of my grandfather’s funeral, on August 2nd, 1961.

Teen on drugs almost dies but has NDE and learns a lot

At the age of 15, my stepfather moved our family to a new state far from the friends, life, and boyfriend I loved. I hated our new city, and my parents’ ever-increasing fighting was tearing apart the family. I was an angry isolated teenager with no friends and poor coping skills. My family was Christian, but I remained agnostic because I figured if God existed, he must be either punitive or indifferent to allow so much misery to happen in the world. I wanted nothing to do with him.
