Agata's Experience

Experience description:   

My experience is slightly different from cases described here on this webpage but I think it's still relevant to the issue of NDE. The main difference was that I did not actually passed out. One afternoon, I sat at the desk, in front of my laptop (actually it took place a few days ago) - nothing special except the fact I wasn't feeling very well on that day. This is usually because of my low blood pressure and irregular heartbeat and it was the same thing this time.

As I sat there, I suddenly felt kind of separated from my body although I was aware of that happened around me. It was incredible lightness and a feeling of love. As I'm interested in spirituality issues, I knew it was my soul being separated from my mind and body for that moment. I also knew it was virtually impossible to feel fear or any other negative emotion in that state - so it must be us "making up" all negativity if we choose to. The whole experience lasted a few seconds, then I came back to my normal consciousness, but it was powerful. Now I know I'm not my mind or body which I feel so attached to, but this incredible love and lightness I felt at that moment. This is my soul and my essence which is timeless and limitless.
