Kees B's Experience

Experience description:   

I was in my car, braked for a red light and without a tunnel or a light I was suddenly in a very beautiful landscape. There was peace all around me. And there was someone with me with whom I communicated through my thoughts. I started asking questions. I must tell you that at that time the question: why do babies and small children have to suffer and die, haunted me. That was what the first questions were about. I can't describe the answers in words. They were given in a predominating feeling of love. I have no words for it because when I was there I understood this feeling. I had all the knowledge of all the lives of these beings and of the lives of people around them. It all boils down to this: it wasn't all that bad because it happens in the interest of the every child. I do remember there was a place where these children had some peace, a sort of playground. 

Every question I asked evoked various new questions. The answers came to me in a very quiet and especially a predominating love. 

We arrived at an open space where beings were. I had no contact with them, we got into a small cart and flew away. I don't know the reason for this flight but I can vividly remember the sharp turn we took. Eventually we walked back to the boundary where we had to say our goodbyes. I remember very well that I wanted to learn as much as possible in the time that was left. I asked questions and they were all answered. I specifically remember the peace and quiet and the feeling of love during the communication. At the boundary we said goodbye and I was given an extra warm blanket of love. This and the flight I remember most, because when I was back in my car all the knowledge evaporated, like when you blow up a balloon and then let the air out again. I tried to hold on to the knowledge but I was only able to remember a small portion. I hated that so I was a little panicky. 

The light was still red and my car hadn't stopped yet although I felt I had been gone for 5 minutes or more. 

I can't get that feeling (answer) back although I have a little bit of that feeling of bliss every now and then. That expresses itself in emotions, tears and a small piece of wisdom? 

I can give you an example by telling you what happened to me last year. I was in bed watching TV and I saw a program about a man who had been working in an Eastern European country for 8 years to help rebuild a hospital. In this hospital was a child with cancer, waiting until there was enough money for the next chemo. His mother sat in the corner of the room and was not included in the program. 

The old question arose again: why does this child have to suffer. 

Immediately the answer came to me. Don't you see the great love, richness and the bond that have grown between these people as a result of this illness. Those feelings surpass the worldly feelings. Tears rolled down my cheeks by watching these intense feelings of predominating love between these 2 people.  

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words?  Yes, because I received a lot of information which is not of this world. A predominating love of wisdom, knowledge about this life and all my previous lives. But also about the lives of other people and their previous lives. 

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?  While saying goodbye. 

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: While saying goodbye. 

Did your vision differ in any way from your normal every day vision?  Uncertain, I couldn't make out faces but I saw the surroundings. 

Did your hearing differ in any way from your normal every day hearing?  Yes, every communication was through telepathy. 

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

What emotions did you feel during the experience?  Love and a very rich feeling of bliss. 

Did you pass into or through a tunnel or enclosure?  No. 

Did you see a light?  No. 

Did you meet or see any other beings?  Yes, I communicated with one but not with the others. 

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?  No.

Did you see or visit any beautiful or otherwise distinctive locations, levels or dimensions?  Yes. 

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?  No. 

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?  Yes, much knowledge but not of this world. I learned that you take all your experiences and knowledge with you to something bigger. 

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?  Yes, only when I went back. I had to say goodbye which wasn't too difficult. It wasn't that I didn't want to leave, it just happened. 

Did you become aware of future events?  No. 

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience you did not have prior to the experience?  No. 

Have you shared this experience with others?  Yes, a few days later I told my wife and again later I told some other people. I didn't tell everyone because it is so hard to explain and besides what good will it do to other people. I don't even know why it happened and what I am supposed to do with this experience. Very frustrating. 

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience?  No. 

How did you view the reality of your experience shortly after it happened:  Experience was definitely real. The vast amount of experiences, feelings and memories, the feeling when we were flying and especially the sharp turn we took. 

How do you currently view the reality of your experience:  You keep repeating the experiences in your head so that they remain real. 

Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?  No. 

Have your religious beliefs/practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?  No. 

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?  Yes. 

Did the questions asked and information you provided so far accurately and comprehensively describe you experience?  Uncertain, I've written this story down at least 3 times and every time it is 50% different. 

Are there any questions we could ask to help you communicate your experience?  The experiences are similar to a NDE, but without almost dying. I have never read or heard anything about this and I would love to know if I am the only one. That can't be!!! 

I would really like to know this. 

That is why I have written down my non-NDE because the experiences are so similar.
