Rob W's Experience

Experience description:   

In October of 2009 I started having severe joint and body aches with extremely intense headaches. So I decided to drive myself to the hospital, which now as I look back on it was crazy. anyway After a few days of testing the Doctors concluded that I was suffering from viral spinal meningitis. So after a couple days of being treated for this illness I started to get better and everything thing was going as planned as far as treatment wise. And then it happened, I went to sleep that night as I always did, that is being woke up every couple hours and then trying to get back to sleep. But this time I suddenly found myself in this extreme black void and then I realized I was amongst the stars in the universe but I was calm and I also knew absolutely everything and I mean everything, the most complex math formulas, the secrets of the universe, Its really hard to describe  it was if I had always had this knowledge but its hidden from us? It was absolutely amazing, and the next scene I found myself on top of this amazing tall mountain looking at a sky or sunset that the colors were so incredible I cant describe them, this mountain was over looking what appeared to be a green valley that went on forever it was so intense yet so comforting I was not scared or uncomfortable at all. Then the next thing I remember I was watching myself in a third party view, which I thought was odd but none the less.

Talking to three other men and then all of a sudden I was now the person I was watching in a first party view, I was talking to a man whom I knew to be Jesus and we talked about a lot of things but I only remember this, and honestly I don't understand why I had questions because I knew absolutely everything but either way I asked any way, Jesus this I said Jesus what is the right religion? odd (huh?) I know, and he looked at me with the most gentle, kind, loving reply and said: Robby all religions are man made the only thing that matters is Love, Forgiveness and Compassion and Love is all that matters! and then the next thing I woke in my hospital bed about 5 a.m.  Saying "I get it" " I get it" I finally get it! and then I called my wife at home immediately and started trying to tell her everything that I had just experienced but I found myself forgetting millions of bits of info by the second which was frustrating. And all my wife could say to me was Robby you are on drugs but I kept telling her no this was real far more real then my existence right now, I can close my eyes to this day and visually see the mountain and that sky! To this day she still don't believe me. But I know from the bottom of my heart that this was real! I am no longer afraid to die at all and since that day I have been on this crazy mission to learn as much as I can about the afterlife, some say I'm obsessed with it. I'm even trying to astral project in order to get back there ? and experience more!  Another thing is that we are all connected everyone is connected to everything even the rocks on the ground everything is connected to each other.

What could a national organization with an interest in near death experience (NDE) do that would be of interest to you?        all that I have read and researched is very helpful , we need more people to tell the world of their experiences and maybe society might wake up and start to believe. and all the fear and hate in this world would disappear.

Please offer any suggestions that you may have to improve this questionnaire.  Are there any other questions that we could ask to help you communicate your experience?                    shorten it a little and try not to asked the same questions twice.
