I had 3 near death experiences very early in my life. And all were in conjuction with water. I'll tell you about my first, which took all fear of dying till this day 30 years later. I keep the story short. As I was struggling in the cold water, I didn't feel anything anymore. All I remember is hearing music and seeing white light. Thats all. The next thing I remembered is being pulled into a fishing boat. And then blackout till I warmed up and came out of shock.
Similar drowning accidents happened twice later. These 3 experiences happened between my age of 7 and 12.
What I do remember is during the struggles, even my body was fighting, my mind was at easy, feeling mellow. Somehow as if there is a fuse that shuts off everything.
Dr. Allan Hamilton attended Harvard Medical School and later became the Chief of Neurosurgeon and Chairman of the Department of Surgery at the University of Arizona Health Sciences Center. He currently holds a main appointment as a Professor in Neurosurgery as well as professorships in Radiation Oncology, Psychology, and Electrical and Computer Engineering. Dr. Hamilton also is the Executive Director of The Arizona Simulation Technology and Education Center (ASTEC) at The University of Arizona College of Medicine.
Brain Surgeon Dr. Allan Hamilton discussed his experiences with spirituality and the supernatural and how they are manifested in the lives of patients. In one case, a woman with a brain aneurism was placed on a heart/lung machine during surgery, and there was no blood flow to her brain. Yet, afterwards she was able to recount exactly what happened during the operation. Where were these memories stored?, Hamilton pondered.
He described his own healing experience with an Indian medicine man who determined that the pain he was undergoing was caused by not letting go of the spirit of a little boy who had died in his care. When people or animals are close to dying, Hamilton said he has often observed a waxy, yellow light almost shining off their body.
Dr. Hamilton also shared some helpful rules for when you or a loved one goes into the hospital. Among them:
Never underestimate luck-- good or bad.
Find a doctor who cares about you, someone that can serve as an advocate.
Live your life with death in it-- don't take a single day for granted.
Ask your doctor to pray with you.
Don't be turned into just another patient-- hospitals tend to strip patients of their identity.
Listen to your favorite music-- music has a connection to emotional states.
Develop your own healing rituals.

You all might like to watch this documentary on NDE:
I personally believe that near death experiences are part of satan's deception. It is perhaps the uttmost of deception.
