    Suicidal teen/bottle of aspirin/and thoughts of wanting to end it. Thank God I didn't have any other means to accomplish the deed faster.
    I honestly experienced a presence in the room with me and became aware that my life was ultimately my choice, whether to go or to stay. I didn't feel scared or fearful, to the contrary I felt peace with no condemnation but I DID realize that although I wanted my emotional pain to stop I didn't want my life to end.
    That experience has remained as clear to me as if it happened just last night because I realized for the first time that I'm never ever really alone ... and that my life is a series of my own choices, day after day. Been choosing life ever since.

      Glad the suicidal teen didn't win out!

      Did you feel the presence that was with you, was "God", angelic beings, family...?

    Well...I had a road accident in the past that I believe was quite close. I was driving my  bike while it was raining. I should have been a bit slow but I was going fast as I was late to reach somewhere. A guy tried to cross the road and I had to use brakes. As the road was wet, the bike just slipped and I was down on the road in moments. Right at the moment when I saw traffic coming towards me, I thought for a moment that it was the last moment of my life. In a glimpse of a second the whole of my past life came before my eyes, my family, friends and all. But great  thanks to Almighty, no heavy vehicle was coming right after me and I was able to stand up and move to one side of the road. The bike was damaged a bit but was still functional. I stayed there for a few moments, pulling myself together, started the bike and went to the doctor for medical aid as I had bruises on my knees and hands. For me it was quite close....

      Wow!  Scary situation.  Just curious if you believed in the Almighty before the life review?  Was the life review in the presence of the Almightly?

      I have always believed in the Almighty who is omnipotent. There are certain things you have to believe as they are beyond your physical senses.

    Not this lifetime, but I have experienced an OBE (out-of-body event).

    Most OBE's and NDE's occur right after some form of trauma -- accident or surgery. But my experience happened while in the middle of spiritual counseling.

    One moment, I was sitting in a chair on the second floor of the church building. The next, I was 15' above the ground and 12' off my body's left shoulder. The blinds were closed in the window next to my body, so I couldn't see my body. But I could see clearly the cracks in the pink stucco of the building and the near-empty parking lot next door.

    Only when I became self-conscious (return of ego) did I snap back into my body.

    After 42 years, I finally realized that ego is the blindfold we pulled over our spiritual eyes to separate us from God. This was the forbidden fruit in the Garden -- the arrogance of separateness and selfishness.

      An interesting take on the forbidden fruit.  I like it.

      My husband would have obe's when he meditated.  It was always interesting what he would see.  I can't recall ever having one.  Have you continued to experience obe's?
