Alexandre FS's Experience

Experience description:   

I was going through one of the most difficult times of my life, married with 2 children and threatened with the possibility of unemployment 2 years prior to reaching retirement age.  I literally began to panic and pray to God for his help at all times.  

I was laying down at home one afternoon when I suddenly found myself standing beside my body.  At first I did not recognize myself, the image that I saw was different than what I was used to seeing in pictures or in the mirror.  I felt a lot of peace and joy and a wonderful vibrant energy around my spiritual body.  At that point, a very calm voice asked me "What problem do you have?" I then understood that it was my laying body, but this did not bother me at all since I was experiencing the best moment of my life.  I then had to make a incredible effort in order to respond, because I did not know what he was referring to. Then when I remembered and I realized that all of my worrying was worthless, what mattered was getting to where I now was.  I understood that I did not need to worry so much.  I did not see anyone, only the voice that spoke to my conscience and this is how we communicated.  Until that point I did not remember my children and wife.  When the voice gave me the option of leaving out the window and continuing on or returning to my body, I immediately responded that I wanted to continue on.  

But at that exact moment I heard the sound of pots that came from my apartment and remembering my wife and children I felt a responsibility of having to return; that is what happened immediately at an incredible speed.  The last part of the experience was not good because my body was so rigid and it hurt to move each joint, even opening my eyelids was painful.  Finally I was able to get up.  I quickly went into the kitchen to tell my wife what had happened, she did not give it much importance.  I learned that what is important in life is to live in peace and without attaching too much value to difficulties; most importantly that there are wonderful things on the other side.

After the experience and spending much time questioned the origins of the soul I one day started to write these words.


In the beginning I was flesh and energy;

As flesh I needed energy to give me life;

As energy I needed flesh to also give me life;

Today I continue to be flesh and energy;

As flesh I continue to need energy for life;

But as energy I have acquired knowledge and I no longer need meat to give me life;

What was flesh continues as flesh but what was energy is now spirit.

Did the questions asked and information you provided so far accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?         Yes    

Are there any other questions we could ask to help you communicate your experience?    After my experience I read a lot about it and I believe that there are other circumstances under which one can experience an NDE.
