Various studies in the field of NDE reveal the following specific characteristics, which are experienced:
A dark room and a tunnel with beautiful light;
I saw my body but did not feel it.
I was sucked away, as it were.
The feeling of quiet and peace, no more pain;
I have never felt so happy.
The realization of being dead;
Very soberly I thought: Hey, now I’m dead.
Exit experience outside the unconscious body;
The sight of the Earth from this height was the most beautiful and enchanting thing I have ever experienced.
Perception of a non-worldly environment, with beautiful buildings, colors, flowers, music;
As I approached that area there were trees and birds and lots of people, but seemed to be made of light.
Everything I saw was of an indescribable love.
Meet deceased loved ones and acquaintances;
They were all around 35 years old, including my brother whom I had never known
Contact with a radiant, bright light or being;
I realized what a gift this was and that I was surrounded by loving spiritual beings
A sense of indescribable experience;
Everything I saw was imbued with an indescribable Love
A vibe of all actions and the consequences;
Experiencing a boundary and the return into the body.
