Experience description:  

My grandfather was in hospital and as I waited with him to pass to the next place we inhabit a number of events occurred that would lead me to my "After Life Experience" I sat with him over a number of days and towards the end I had an overwhelming need to tell him not to be scared of dying. Something took me over and I told him that he was going to a very beautiful place and on arrival all his family would be there waiting for him. He would be happy and he would be well again. So where did that come from? I felt a guilt for saying these things because how could I know? Why did I say this?

The day he passed it was early morning and I continued with my normal day although very sad I got on with my scheduled day, this included a reflexology treatment in the evening for a minor health issue. Shortly after the session commenced I felt a strong force start to pull my head first in an upwardly motion, a very bright light appeared all around me. The force continued to lift and drag me away in a tunnel surrounded in the most beautiful bright light. I felt such happiness like nothing I had ever known and beauty all around me. I wanted to go I wanted to continue to see what else was there. I was aware that my friend, the reflexology technician was calling me back but I still moved on and up. next I was aware that to continue would mean no return and a guilt came over me, my children what would happen to them and I returned. 

I remember failing back down with a thud and a fearful face starting at me still holding me feet, I then heard my grandfather, he told me he had come to thank me, that I was right re the trip to "heaven", everyone was there he told me happily and he wanted to be sure I knew I was right. During this time I experienced some symptoms of shock, shaking especially and was tendered to by my friend. The conversation continued with my grandfather with my friend at times speaking his words without understanding why, she remembers doing it but has no knowledge of the words she was saying. 

During the conversation he was able to tell me that there was no point just telling me he needed to show me so I would truly believe.

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Yes     This experience was so unbelievable that using words to explain it may have been seen by others viewing me as unstable, the only saving factor was I shared part it with a friend and they helped me through the communication

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?          No      

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?    When I returned I heard the messages from my grandfather very clearly and they came via the sounds I was hearing and the actions of my friend whom was with me at the time. an example of this was when my grandfather spoke to me about his dog I heard a dog bark as if it were in the room with me.

How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal every day consciousness and alertness?    More consciousness and alertness than normal

If your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience was different from your normal every day consciousness and alertness, please explain:            When I returned I heard the messages from my grandfather very clearly and they came via the sounds I was hearing and the actions of my friend whom was with me at the time. an example of this was when my grandfather spoke to me about his dog I heard a dog bark as if it were in the room with me.

Did your vision differ in any way from your normal, everyday vision (in any aspect, such as clarity, field of vision, colors, brightness, depth perception degree of solidness/transparency of objects, etc.)?  No      

Did your hearing differ in any way from your normal, everyday hearing (in any aspect, such as clarity, ability to recognize source of sound, pitch, loudness, etc.)?

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Yes

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            So much happiness more than I ever imagined I could have, peace as if I was going where I was meant to be until I remembered my children and I felt so guilty that I had to return.  Gratitude for the experience and great love for my grandfather whom shared his new home with me.

Did you pass into or through a tunnel or enclosure?          Yes     It was a light tunnel with such pure white light, brighter than any whiteness that I could imagine.  The tunnel had a force that pulled me through it, sort of floating but with more force. I didn't make it out the other side as I decided to turn back.

Did you see a light?           Yes     I not only seen it, I felt it. It wrapped around me and travelled with me through the tunnel. So bright and clear.

Did you meet or see any other beings?           Yes     on my return my Grandfather began talking to me. He confirmed that I was correct in what I had told him the night before in the last hours of his life, it was true that "everyone" (deceased family) were there waiting for him and it was so beautiful, which were odd things for my very tough grandfather to say. He told me he had done this for me to thank me for helping him pass with less fear and give me confidence that what I had told him was correct.

Did you experience a review of past events in your life?    No      

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Yes     the conversation with my grandfather was confirmed by me asking questions of him and my friend answered as if she were him, details only he could have known came from her mouth

Did you see or visit any beautiful or otherwise distinctive locations, levels or dimensions?           No           

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?   Yes     This experience did seem to go on for a long time but when I reflected (many times to confirm it really happened) with my friend I did learn that the whole experience had been much shorter than I believed it was

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?     Yes     I am now not even the slightest bit fazed by death, I am prepared to go to this wonderful place with confidence and hope. I struggle now to feel any grief for those whom have died and have as a result struggled with people feeling grief, I want them to know with absolute confidence as I do that their lost love ones are perfectly ok and in a far better place. I initially felt that I should be working in palliative care helping many more people make their journey in peace and with knowledge then I met someone doing this work and he talked to me about just about everyone he had nursed through their death had done this themselves without being told. I still may look to do this but to date it hasn't happened and I now have learnt to say "everything happens for a reason"

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? No      

Did you become aware of future events?       Yes
            Again I will say a door opened and in came the future, this future included very vivid conversations with those already dead, a sense when bad things very happening I would be made aware. An example is when a natural disaster occurred a couple of years later before I even knew about it I had an overwhelming understanding that a whole lot of souls were all rushing into "heaven" at the same time. I have days when I have many distractions from the "voices" but have learnt to ask them to leave me as often their requests and questions left me feeling very responsible.

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience you did not have prior to the experience?     Yes     Indeed as mentioned above I started to feel like I was a TV Psychic with a story for everyone I met, I felt that the phrase" no such thing as a coincidence" was written about me! My children could get away with nothing anymore, which is a great parenting tool! My staff were aware I could second guess them and this did cause some conflict. I even caught my partner out in an affair! You would have thought he could have trusted my new ability a little better? But I have been able to pass on some very important and life changing messages onto many and this has been a very uplifting experience, even shocking me sometimes as although I have many example that are correct I still have not settled into absolute belief in my new abilities.

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes     Well my grandfather spoke to me on my return from the light and asked me to do one thing for him and that was to stop my dad and aunt putting down his much loved little dog. whilst he lay waiting to enter the light himself my family debated the dogs future and agreed putting him down was the best option. My grandfather asked me to stop this. I needed then to explain to my aunt what had happened the evening after he died and fortunately she believed me. The little dog remained with her only a short time before he died of illness. Funnily a short time after he passed my grandfather came to me and told me that "Benji" was with him, he was so excited and happy!

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience?    Uncertain            Well of course I had heard things but believing this was possible, not even close to understanding

How did you view the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:            Experience was definitely real    Well I had somebody with me through the experience, a reflexology technician. Her comment that she felt my life force leaving my body stays with me always. I remember her calling for me to come back to her this was very real. The comments she made as if it was my grandfather happened, she allowed me to have no questions as to the reality of the experience.

Were there one or several parts of the experience especially meaningful or significant to you?            Confirmation that there is more than just this earth for all beings, a sense that we have a greater job to do other than what we do here.

How do you currently view the reality of your experience:            Experience was definitely real    this experience has molded me into who I am now, everything changed and I have a new life now because of it.

Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?           Yes     I am more relaxed and accepting, I am less needy and enjoy things that before this experience held little enjoyment to me. As a result my relationships have changed and I require less from others and more from myself

Have your religious beliefs/practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?           
Yes     I believe there is a force, maybe like "mother nature" that directs and guides all living things. A singular force for everything.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         No      

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        WOW.............I wish everyone could have an experience like this, what a world it would be then?

Did the questions asked and information you provided so far accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?         Yes     this questionnaire has allowed me to demonstrate my experience
