It would have been cool to see an angel standing there too, but I didn't need that. I just needed a nudge to stop what I was doing and to join my family. God gives us what we need when we need it. Never too much or to little.

Kinglizard, your story touched me and made me think of something...
I have a very personal question to ask you, and I will certianly understand if you choose not to answer it, but I have always questioned whether we all go to heaven when we die, or only "good" people...
Before you had this experience, did you consider yourself to be a good person or a sinner?

While the story is interesting, but could also be a hallucination triggered by the pain, the narcotics and the stress his body was undergoing,

That's an amazing story. How very blessed you are to have had the experience and the opportunity to share it so that perhaps others will find their own belief and/or faith in our wonderful Father in Heaven. May He continue to bless you and guide you and may His will always be done. Amen.

What sparks my interest in NDEs is that people see what they want to see. For example upon death, christians will call Jesus and God and the first person they will see will be God. Some people call for dead relatives and will see them as well. Do people hoping to get to Heaven will have their wish granted?
Is heaven a common place for all deceased souls or is Death a very personal experience, an experience materializing one's faith and wishes.
Does God has a plan for everyone of us? If so, why did he ask if you wanted to stay or go? Maybe you already achieved His Plan and he rewarded you with the choice to spend some more time on Earth?
