What happened? How close did you come to dying? Did you die and return to life?
Wow, I was dead. not breathing and no vital signs. I have no memory of it because it was a blow to the head. Maybe I will write a hub, it is a loooong story.
We joke about it, actually. I woke up, and my husband is sure I am dead. I can't see, so I am crawling on my hands and knees behind the couch, where he is sitting, wailing :Whoo Hiit Myyy Heeaaad? WHOOO HIIIT MYYY HEEEEAAAD?" He almost had a heart attack, because h looks for my reflection in the sliding glass door and there is nothing there, he turns and looks over his shoulder, nothing! I am still wailing, he stands and looks over into the bedroom and my body is gone. I have come up behind him and as he's spinning around he falls over me.
So you're a vampire !
No reflexion !!!
I'm bringing the holy Water !
No I am a zombie and I want my chocolate chip cookies and milk!
PS I was crawling on the floor behind the couch, there would have been a reflection if I was walking.
Not really, "Near Death" I guess... but I was working in a pizza delivery shop. I had just turned 21 and we were supposed to go out drinking, my boss and I (we were the only ones working) and I went to pick up a friend a couple blocks down the road. When I came back, someone had come in and shot him, I was gone for like 5 minutes. I'm under the impression they had waited until I left before going in, but you never know. Anyone could have guessed what would have happened had I waited 5 minutes.
someone dosed me with ghb in new orleans and i had to be picked up by an ambulance on bourbon st. I stopped breathing three times. Damn date rape drugs
I think date rape drugs are a sign of a broken society. Think about it, you have gotten so low you have to drug someone so you can comfortably rape them without all the screaming and scratching. What kind of sick perverted individual comes up with that idea?
I am sorry Fluffy, did you see the lights everyone talks about?
The closest I was to death was when I was turning left and my truck lost control because of a lot of gravel in the road....fish tailed and came very close to wrapping the truck around a pole. but thankfully it didn't, went in between two poles and slammed into another car driving that car three spaces then stopped...
I published a newsletter in the back office of a mortuary-- wrote about it as a "near death" experience.
I like that. Have you read Stormryders Statutory Rape hub? Trust me.
I worked in the morgue at my city's newspaper for a time... does that count? I still "kill" old comps even though it is all digital now
Different kind of morgue-- there were actual bodies where I was. My friend's father owned the mortuary. He was the only person we knew with a Xerox machine we could use.
Wow, I guess I am a true printer if I imagine the stacks when I hear the word morgue.
Do you mind if I ask - was it a creepy place, or a solemn place of respect? I always imagine them as respectful.
I had an experience of which I can't describe in a public forum. Maybe I'll do a hub later, but... whatever
Anyway I got to a point of accepting my death and then I lost consciousness. When I woke up I felt.
well, I didn't feel the joyous grateful to be alive and enjoy every minute thing. I never have gotten past that acceptance of it.
I'm not sure if that is a bad thing or a good thing
I got hit by a truck and am glad to be alive... Did you see lights?
The lights people see are the result of the optic nerve failing. It has happened to people during MRIs. You can see the parts of the brain that lose the activity.
I did see lights but I think it was a result of the situation, not my medical state. It was very confusing.
Shoot, so when I am going to sleep at night, sometimes I see a flash of white light after I close my eyes, before I am sleeping. Does that mean my brain parts are losing activity?
It means there is light inside of you.
You are so sweet.
It used to startle me, but now I kind of wait for it. I have been having migraines lately so maybe it's just too much time in front of the monitor.
Could be that, too.
I have heard that when people start to meditate the only see darkness at first when they close their eyes, but after getting into the practice they see more light.
Yes... more than once in my life. I wrote about it here in a hub called 'Intuition.'
Amazing experience and certainly one that changed my life positively.
Yep! carcked it on the theatre table during a 5 hour cancer op. White light and all.
I should have died a lot more often than that racing motorcycles, but the good ole sub-conscious took over and put me in slow-mo.
that's when everything slows down until you regain control of the bike.
A very weird experience that I have had many times.
It really is a bit like time travel!

Each person have experiences unique to him. Variations of human experiences are as many as there are people in this whole world and this is a very good reason why any sensible person should respect every other person because nobody will ever know exactly what this other person can do once provoked....

I have. I was ill one evening, having a colitis attact, and my blood pressure plummeted. I literally died for a few seconds, although it seemed longer than a few seconds to me. I literally, or my soul perhaps, was outside my body watching myself and at the same time I saw the...

Have you ever had a near death experience?Many years ago I was attacked and very nearly strangled; had a co-worker not walked outside and scared off my assailant, I would have died in an alley at age 20. At that time I had the same experience many others have described and which is considered the...
