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.
