This experiment is quite different than those you are describing on this site. I didn’t die but my uncle Benjamin did. At the time, I heard about him passing away, I was home at Nice in France. In my room, I rested a moment to cry, my door was closed. I was thinking to my uncle, crying when suddenly the door opened and I saw a glowing light entering the room and I saw a translucent body coming from nowhere looking like my uncle figure, then I heard his voice like he was talking to me and he said : “Son, ( Ya ouldi in Jewish ) don’t cry, death is not what you think, I’m OK, everything is OK !”. I got up. I couldn’t believe this !! But he said to me : « Look in your pocket, there’s money, go out and buy yourself an ice-cream !”. I got up and I thought :’ There’s no money in that trousers and while I was looking in the pockets I found 20 cents which at that time was enough to buy some ‘unsendable’ damaged ice-creams with that amount of money in the ice-cream factory in front of my home. But the time to check the money, the light was flashing gone like it had come and then I came out on the street, I bought one ice-cream. Then I told my mom what happened and she told me that it could have been the soul of my uncle who wanted to comfort me and she told me to not be afraid of that event.
I thought about this a numerous time and I told myself I dreamt or that I created all this on my mind because my uncle did visit us every week at the same time I saw his ghost ( 3 pm ) and the same day ( Saturday ). Then I had some other experiments, Out of Body experience ( I have to tell about one which occurred when I was 23 years old in another testimony ). That was a time where I was meditating a lot, asked myself many questions about the world, meaning of life etc.
