I'd like to tell you my story about a close NDE. However first I must propose the question. Can a person experience an NDE before dying? I believe
something similiar can happen. Note: I never died, but had an amazing experience.
I will try to be brief here, so I don't get deleted. My lifelong conquest was to understand why I had such a comprehension problem. I had barely
passed high school and constantly asked questions I already knew to my wife when I was married. I will relate the next situation as a natural
At work years later, a friend introduced me to a website about brain research. Over 30 years research was conducted on the amygdala and it was found
that "clicking the amygdala forward" released a chemical into the frontal lobes that increases logic, memory, perception, and intelligence. I tried
the "brain exercises" and even ordered a DVD about the experiences. One day while I was just relaxing, the experience (which I equate to a near NDE)
happened. I didn't see any angels. However suddenly, I felt an OVERWHELMING feeling of unity and love. The next day at work I was flabbergasted when
I realized my memories had soared. My work performance had improved overnight.
To this day I am am not afraid of nearly anything, I'm exceeding in my academic endevours, afraid to speak of my experience, and still have those
"spiritual encounters" nightly. I am a christian; love Jesus, but cannot understand what has happened to me. Sometimes I almost feel like an
outcast. I think there is so much more about the "NDE" and God we don't know yet. Also I have yet to understand the tingles I feel in my head
constantly. I'm led to believe a '___' was released and now resides in my frontal lobes. One thing I love to do this day is memorising things. After
the experience I found I had the ability to memorise a 200 digit or longer number in a very short span of time.
I didn't experience the white light (since I wasn't physically dead), but I did experience mental levitation, an unconditional love, and was able to
recall memories I had forgotten as a child. However my family doesn't like to hear me talk about it.
