Neha's Experience

Experience description:   

I was really very sad and depressed my friend died on 9/11/2014 and I knew it on 29/11 at night I couldn't sleep all night and next day on 1/12 I just wanted to meet him or talk to him somehow, I was crying since night, as I believe in supernatural, life after death and ADCs, I thought of asking him for giving me signs so I could know that he is still with us and fine, (I also had ADCs with him but not at this time when I had NDE) so I closed my eyes and started to think about him, I was saying him something and asking questions that I do t remember now but I guess "why he went and why he had to go" kind of questions they must have been, I was asking him and then I went into some unconscious state it was like meditation but I could here a very little amount of noise of physical world and I was ignoring it, it was like I was not able to give it my attention, the process or I must say the Journey was so fast really very rapid, I couldn't make a thought about it even, my mind was flying so rapidly in an all black space I guess it was universe but it was just dark and black with some blue white bright and faded flickering lines and dots, I couldn't see them clearly because I was travelling with the speed of light and racing of my thoughts I was going in an upward straight direction like wind flowing on randomly but toward a destination through a definite path, and there was a doorway at the end it was kind of a very big gate I it was burning like sun but all around was dark it was in round shape of red and orange color I guess it was sun I think that wasn't spreading light around it as I reached near to it. I was very close I was staring it with questioning eyes and it turned its face toward me and was saying something I don't know if I heard it and forgot or I couldn't hear it but right in that moment I came back to this real world and I was so confused that where I was I was a little bit scared and sad that I couldn't talk to my friend and the first thing came out of my mouth after coming back was "did just reached at the gate of hell" this whole thing must have happened in about some seconds or 1 or 2 minutes.
