Rachel's Experience

Experience description:   

My spirit and soul left my body and flew into the room.  I saw a vision of the future of being found dead on my bed and saw my body laying on the bed motionless.  I was dead.  I then flew out of the room into another realm where I saw a life review but not a total life review.  Only a few mistakes I had made is what I was shown in my life review.  I then went into a tunnel and something held my hand as I was in the tunnel floating along through several dimensions.  It was not a dream.  It was a out of body experience.  I had a out of body experience later that year when my head was bubbling with fluid as I lay on my bed and touched my head to make certain it actually was bubbling up and down with fluid at the top left of my head and at the top of my head so I lay there quietly refusing to move in case I would die from my head bubbling with fluid buildup.  In my near death experience my spirit and soul completely left my body and my body remained in my room on my bed while I travelled to other realms and other dimensions.  I know I was not dreaming and know that I had died.  I had almost died a year earlier from a allergic reaction and was gasping for air and blacked out. 

There were experiences of other realms.  the first realm was a cave with several black souls fighting each other so I call that grinding and gnashing of teeth they were doing because it was such a small area for them all to be standing waiting to throw the ones that descended into that realm over the cliff into a hole in the ground.  The next realm was temptations of earthly places and I felt myself descending toward the earthly place but it was not where my body was and the being that was holding my hand let go and I began descending out of the tunnel so I apologized for being distracted realizing I was dead and couldn't get back to earth where my body was laying on my bed.  I thought that if I had fallen out of the tunnel I would have ended up on the cruise ship a ghost and far away from my body and unable to get back to my body. 

The next realm was a flickering white light at the end of the tunnel which I thought may be the white light that the woman who wrote embraced by the light wrote about walking with aliens into the white light so I didn't chose to go there and went on in the tunnel to total darkness and appeared to be waiting there and not moving in the tunnel so I thought I would ask for mercy from God and to be allowed into heaven and asked to knock on the door of heaven.  the saying ask and ye shall receive seek and ye shall find knock and the door shall be opened unto you made me think that if I asked Jesus to help me find heavens door and seek God and knock on heavens door I would have a opportunity to enter into heaven because my body was without air and dead in my room on my bed.  I also thought if I followed the straight and narrow path it would lead me to heavens gate where the bible states greeters are to greet each soul that makes it through.  I said whatever you want to do with me God I surrender to your will and I was instantly pulled out of darkness and into a awesome bright golden light standing in the midst of the golden light and that was not a dream.  It was real.  There was so much love beaming from the light it filled my heart with joy and peace.  After basking in the love and joy and peace the golden light parted showing me a blue sky and clouds.  some clouds had only a few people on them.  One cloud had several people on it and the man standing in front of all those people held out his hands and magnetically pulled the cloud I was standing on towards his cloud and as soon as I was at his cloud I was instantly transported back to my room and my spirit and soul still were not entirely back inside my body and I felt like I was walking on air and it took a week to get entirely back inside my body.  It was not a dream.  It was a NDE.  I died and came back to life and was given a second chance at my life.

At the time of your experience was there an associated life-threatening event?   Yes   I felt like I was about to die.  I then became paralyzed to the bed and couldn't reach the telephone to call 911 and my heart stopped beating after I had taken my last gasp of air and there was a pain in my heart and a snap sound in my heart area.  It could have been from the date rape drug that was put in my drink that caused the heart failure.

Was the experience difficult to express in words?....Yes....Going through the realms was difficult to explain because I had never known there were other realms such as those and believe that when I will be going through the same paths when my life ends.  I also have difficulty expressing how awesome the feeling of joy and love I felt coming into my body when I was standing in the midst of the golden light.  There are no words to describe it.

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?....More consciousness and alertness than normal    I was the highest level of consciousness and alertness throughout the entire NDE and throughout the out of body experience.....When I returned to my body I was highly spiritual and felt like I was walking on air off the ground.

Please compare your vision during the experience to your everyday vision that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.    I was a normal person prior to the death experience and wasn't certain about the afterlife till after I had been through the death experience.  I had no visions of the afterlife before the death experience and had no dreams of what heaven would be like and had no dreams of what other realms would be like.

Please compare your hearing during the experience to your everyday hearing that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.    There was nothing heard during the experience.

Did you see or hear any earthly events that were occurring during a time that your consciousness / awareness was apart from your physical / earthly body?    Yes   In one realm I saw a cruiseship on the ocean and that was a temptation of earthly events that distracted me from seeking God and thinking of Jesus while in the tunnel.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?....I was feeling sorry for the mistakes I had made that I was shown in my life review that I didn't know were mistakes I needed to ask to be forgiven for.  I felt joy when I was in heavens gate filled with love coming from all who were there.  

Did you pass into or through a tunnel?....Yes....After I was shown a few things of my life review that were mistakes I had made then I went into the tunnel and travelled in the tunnel through all the realms and dimensions I passed through and then when I was in the gates of heaven I was no longer in a tunnel.

Did you see an unearthly light?....Yes....In one realm there was a white light flickering far away in the distance.

When I was in the gates of heaven I was standing in the middle of a bright golden light like sunlight shining all around me.

Did you seem to encounter a mystical being or presence, or hear an unidentifiable voice?....I encountered a definite being, or a voice clearly of mystical or unearthly origin    I saw a group of people that were black souls that stood battling each other while they waited for people to descend from the tunnel into what would be considered where hell might be.   The tunnel was at the ceiling of that cave and passed through that place.  The ancient egyptians said a sun-god took people through a tunnel is what they saw is what I read after I had my death experence.

Did you encounter or become aware of any deceased (or alive) beings?....Yes    They appeared to be greeters of souls that made it through the tunnel pulled out of darkness and they looked like human beings from earth.

Did you become aware of past events in your life during your experience?....Yes....After my spirit and soul left my body and I left my room and went into another realm that is when I saw a vision of a mistake I made as a teenager that I didn't know I needed to be asking to be forgiven for.  That was the only past event in my life I was shown.  When in darkness I remembered many past events that were mistakes I had made.

Did you seem to enter some other, unearthly world?....Some unfamiliar and strange place....The tunnel was near the top of the cave and I could see below me a small area where black souls were standing battling each other and throwing dead into a hole over a cliff.

When I was pulled out of darkness I saw a beautiful blue sky with clouds and what looked like human beings standing on those clouds.

Did time seem to speed up or slow down?....No....

Did you suddenly seem to understand everything?....Everything about myself or others....I suddenly understood how a person gets to the gates of heaven.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?....Yes....I reached what I call the gates of heaven and went no further and was returned back to my body that lay in my room and noticed that it had been 22 hours gone by since I looked at my bedroom clock.

Did you come to a border or point of no return?....I came to a definite conscious decision to "return" to life....I said that I was going to surrender to the will of God and my heart wanted to be back on earth with my children so it was the choice of God to give me a second chance at life

Did scenes from the future come to you?....No....

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge or purpose?....Yes....I believe I went through this death experience to share the information so that people would know what to expect in the afterlife.

Discuss any changes that might have occurred in your life after your experience:....Large changes in my life....I read the Holy Bible everyday and began attending church again....

Did you have any changes in your values or beliefs after the experience that occurred as a result of the experience?    Yes     I worship God and pray to the mediator Christ and prayers to God as well for guidance

Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience?....Yes     I became telepathic and started to be psychic and highly intuitive and highly spiritual and had discernment of spirits.  I had been attacked by the spiritual dark several months after my death experience and assume it is because I learned the truth about the afterlife and the truth about the realms and dimensions when I travelled through the tunnel to the gates of heaven where Jesus is.

Have you ever shared this experience with others?   Yes   I was not able to explain it well enough to make people understand that it was not a dream but that my body was dead and I passed through the afterlife into several realms and dimensions.  Some don't believe that human beings who are in the gates of heaven stand on clouds.  In the Holy Bible it states Jesus will come down on a cloud so it has to be true about the people standing on clouds who are greeters and that is as far as I went in the afterlife.  I only told my children about what happened to me and told your website.

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience?....No     I had no knowledge of near death experiences until after my body died and I had a out of body experience.  I also had not heard of out of body experiences till after I had out of body experiences.  My body was not breathing so my spirit and soul left my body to go into other realms and other dimensions.

What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:....Experience was definitely real    I wanted to be back in heavens gate because of the awesome joy I felt but God wanted me to continue my life and enjoy my life with my children.  I love my children very much and didn't want to leave them and felt a need to return to help my children have good lives.  My children have good lives and are doing well.  I always wonder when I will be going back to the tunnel and hope that I make it through to the gates of heaven again like I did in the year 2000 when my life on earth ends.

What do you believe about the reality of your experience at the current time:....Experience was definitely real....After my death experience I experienced a out of body experience where I went to a realm and flew using the merkabah vehicle of travel.  I stood in my room and practiced the merkabah and a spirit spun me around and then took me on a out of body experience to another realm and I stood on a pillar that transported me through what appeared to be endless space to a gigantic door where I believe the white light is located and transported me back to my room and I was standing in the same spot where I was standing when I began spinning and was never laying on my bed or laying on the floor and wide awake when I did the merkabah vehicle of light travel so I know that was not a dream just like my experiences in the afterlife was not a drean state and was a death experience.

Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?....Yes....I became more interested in being more spiritual and more religious so I changed my friendships.  I never told people about the afterlife experiences.

Have your religious beliefs/spiritual practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?....Yes    I started to attend church more and read the Holy Bible daily and prayed more and I experimented with several churches to find the right one but have not found the church I want to attend and started to change my religious preference.

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience?....No   

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

Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you?     I expected to see angels in the gates of heaven but saw only people who looked identical to human beings clothed in clothing like regular human beings would wear.  I believe in angels because a angel pulled me out of the river when I was drowning five years after my near death experience when I fell into the fast flowing river.

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience?....Several months after my death experience I was laying on my bed and my head began to feel like it was bubbling fluid up and down so I lay there and felt my head and it was bubbling up and down so I was afraid I would die if I moved my head so I lay there waiting for the bubbling to end.  After that bubbling stopped I realized that it could have turned into a death experience if I had not laid there till the bubbling stopped.
