I have eveyr respect for the OP. Did she die? Doesn't matter. I respect everybody here anyway. But that doesn't mean I believe this. Now, I've had some weird lucid dreams. One time I partially fell asleep while in the car at a mall and I remember being above the parking lot looking down at the cars. I immediately woke up. And when I was a kid growing up I told my family that I slept with my eyes open. This is because I had a lot of lucid dreams. My sister had an OBE when she was sick - or she says she did. But I personally think that there's no after-life or astral plane or hocus pocus or whatever you call it. The human brain is an expansive elaborate natural thing. It's like a universe packed into 3 lbs of mostly water. I believe these experiences are created by the brain and people are incited to believe them to be real because it relieves some of their anxieties. No offense.
There could be something to it. Not impossible. But I doubt it. I'm a doubting thomas. I just think the urge to believe these things is so strong that it defeats any attempt at questioning it.edit on 12-8-2012 by jonnywhite because: (no reason given)

I doubt any new concepts or perspectives will be found there... but it might be enjoyable nonetheless.
