I am glad I was led to this story. I saw your signature and could not help but follow. I will say, I fall off the path from time to time, and it's reading something like this that inspires me.

For some reason my mind is my enemy, but something in my heart has always led me to belief. Your words/experience is something that makes me strive to become a better being.

I thank you.

higns07, thank you for the positive post.....this thread as of late really needed it. I'm so happy my story found you.

God please save me from myself is a prayer I am not foreign to.

Blessings friend...

I'm as atheist as one can get, but i still find this story quite interesting. The fact that so many people who have near death experiences end up having these visions (or whatever you want to call them) leads me to four hypotheses.

!: This is a massive conspiracy
2: Hallucinations
3: It actually happens
4: You're just trying to draw attention.

Me, personally, I couldn't care less. I get over this 'Does god exist' by not thinking about it. Whatever happens, happens.

#1 I'm sure is a bit of a joke #'s 2,3 & 4 I can understand though if you don't believe I'm honest me telling you #4 is not in the running will do no good, I understand that....and honestly can't blame you for thinking it.

Take care.

Maybe another time in your life you will consider giving the God issue another look. We all walk our own path....tough to say where it will lead.

Hey there
I'm brand new to this site, but just signed up to thank you for your inspiring and awesome experience! I really do think you are in fact telling the truth as most, if not all NDE visionaries have almost the same feelings and sights. If you search on Google for NDE, I'm sure there are plenty to relate to. I really doubt that this is a hoax. But by the way., I'm 16 years of age, and supposed to be doing my homework right now as it is 2:30 A.M. here! However, I thank God I was led here somehow, because it truly made me think that you know we can't ask for a more loving and caring God! I have never been closer to God than ever before either... I mean I try not to be one of those young people who fall into the ideas of American pop culture, so I opened my eyes and realized that this country is losing more and more of it's connection with God. Just seeing the increasing rates of abortion, violence, drugs, pornography, immodesty, homosexuality, kids rebelling parents, immoral music, movies.. the list goes on and on. I also realize that even if we do make the right choices, people may not like us for that. Only God knows when our days are ending.. but we have to keep on the lookout for his signs.
I was also wondering what your thoughts are on these topics?
Thanks again.

When I was 4, I saw ghosts. Since that ghost spider incident, I slept with my lights on. When I was 5, I slept with my lights on. When I was 6, I drowned. I was told I've been under water for more than 5 minutes. I remember everything that happened before I drown, but I never saw anything during. It was as if I was sleeping, until I was awakend by CPR. Even after that I slept with my lights on.

If I saw ghosts when I was younger it makes me wonder how come I didn't experience anything while I was temporarily dead 2 years after denying everything and sleeping with my lights on.

Um, I don't blame you for being an "Ath," many chruch people do lie and it's hard to tell which are true or not. In fact I really HATE going to chrch and I rather experience things for myself ( fail atempts). Those terms you are using there are terms used to deny spiritual events, that do happen. Materialistic people won't accept anything spiritual and will find many terms (or excuses) for things abnormal that occur.

For ex:

Let us say Material people are the ones that don't believe in writing and spirital people do.

A spiritual person finds a pencil and begans to write and tells a materialistic person. That M person sees the S person writing, but says "You are not writing! That thin wood you are using is reacting to the graphite percing through it. What's happening is an illusion or some type of reacting it is not writing it is simply visible carbon "

There you see an example of denying something that exist and the terms used to make it seem something other than what it is.

Wow, I wish I had your attitude and strength when I was sixteen. You really have your head on straight. It does seem society is losing it's way and wondering further and further from God. But meeting people like you gives me hope.

Stay strong my friend.

Thanks so much for the post.

Has this been posted already?

He was dead for 3 days after a car accident and revived during his funeral with a story about heaven and hell. They interview him and many of the witnesses.

Thats truly an amazing story.

Although the beginning of death is experienced as 'white light' and a tremendous feeling of closeness to your source, the subsequent feeling is painful. I guess the initial phase is to reconcile your mind (neshama) to the world is was excised from. Following that one is shown his life, from day 1 to the day of his death. Every negative action causes a feeling of shame that is according to the mytics 60 times more painful than fire.

So, youre very fortunate and blessed that Hashem returned you to this world. Your mission is most certainly to help others.

Theres a very beautiful story of a very famous rabbi named Yekusiel Yehudah Halberstam. When he was 32, he was offered a position of head rabbi in Jerusalem. this was a very prestigious position to be offered. But before he accepted it, he asked his mother for advice. She said he was too young to accept the position. So, like a good son he took her advice and stayed in Hungary. 2 years later WW2 breaks out and in 1941 Hungary is invaded by Germany. His 11 children and wife were taken and shipped off to Auschwitz along with him. His 11 children and wife were killed in the holocaust. He spent 4 grueling years in auschwitz, Dachau and muldorf. During his time there he wasnt fed, given water and subject to continuous non stop forced labor. The suffering must have been excruciating. Seeing everyone around him brutually treated, murdered and tortured. Before the holocaust he already had a regiment of 3 hours of sleep a night and one meal during the day. He was a true ascetic and G-d fearing man. During this time, he was a spiritual and moral support for hundreds of men. Because of him, 150 men survived the holocaust and throughout the entire ordeal, he was there strengthening and guiding them, telling them to hold on. The fact that he was able to ENDURE all of this, without losing his mind (many holocaust survivors went crazy from the malnutrition, physical labor) but also being a pillar for those around him, was truly unbelievable. He could have been angry at his mother for telling him to stay. He lost his wife and children because of that. But no. The whole time he saw G-ds hand. He knew HaShem wanted something greater for him. He may have lost his children and wife, but he saved hundreds of people. What an unbelievable mission this man was given in life.

I imagine what you went through was to inspire and strengthen others. Wherever you go, whomever you have an influence over, share this knowledge you have with them. This will end up being a source of strength for them.

Have you shared your experience on BTS/ATS yet? If not you should start a thread, I'd love to read it.

I would like to share my NDE. I wonder if this would be the best place to do it, or if I should start my own thread. I get nervous about starting my own - that's a lot of responsibility!! But lately I have been thinking about posting my NDE, and then I came across your (lizardking) signature and found yours. Hmmmm, what to do what to do??

Please do whatever makes you feel more comfortable. I'd be willing to host your NDE in this thread if you like. Don't be afraid to start a thread though, If God gave you that experience I believe it's our responsibility to share it as honestly and openly as possible with as many people as possible.

I know what you mean though it's kinda scary putting yourself out there like that.

Very interesting NDE experience.

I am still wondering about a few things.
1. In the grand scheme of things, does religion really matter?

2. Have you checked out this website?:
www.near-death.com...

3. What is your view on reincarnation?

4. Is one of the purposes of being on Earth is to learn to love unconditionally do you think?

5. What do you think of Buddha?

6. Based on your Near Death Experience, it seems like humans have no free-will. What do you think of free-will?


Thanks.

I see religion as a gathering of likeminded people that are all presuing the same thing. We do need I believe. How else would the faith be preserved for future genorations?


2. Have you checked out this website?:
www.near-death.com...


Never visited that site, thanks for the link.



3. What is your view on reincarnation?


I don't believe in it myself.


4. Is one of the purposes of being on Earth is to learn to love unconditionally do you think?


I'm not an expert on why we are here but that was Jesus's message.


5. What do you think of Buddha?


Seemed like a nice guy.


I can't argue against some of the buddist principles, there is value there IMO.

I just discoverd your wonderful near death experience story, thank you for sharing it.I wasn't active on ATS when you wrote it and so glad that I came across it. I have followed these kind of stories for years and know they are true, it matters not that I haven't had one.

Bless you kinglizard
