What happens to the soul during a near death experience (NDE)? Many have returned to life after being clinically dead and shared amazing insight from the other side.
The Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF) is the largest NDE website in the world with over 4000 experiences in over 23 Languages. What about proof? How do we know these people aren’t making up these stories? Couldn’t it just be their imagination? Skepticism is healthy, and the NDERF FAQ page contains lots of helpful information and addresses any skepticism you may have.
We share below what we believe are the most captivating NDE accounts on the NDERF site. Click on the name in each section if you’d like to read the entire case history on the NDERF site.
Amy C NDE 4720 “died” from an allergic reaction to medication. After leaving her body, she found herself in a room full of souls who all seemed to be quite troubled and could sense how each of them had “died.” She asked a Latino man, who she somehow knew had been a truck driver and “died” in a truck accident, and was like a guide for the group, why he was there. He told her he had mastered humility, and she could feel that. He said he was there to help teach the importance of humility to the group since they had all blocked their progression and failed to learn their lessons by being too self-absorbed.
Our findings show it’s very common for souls to choose to endure tough lessons in order to learn and grow.
He also told her that they had all been careless with their own lives through selfish risks like drug use, drunk driving, and other ways, which she was told is a form of suicide. The guide explained that they wouldn’t be punished for their failures, but instead will rest and learn what they needed to understand. Unfortunately, learning without a body, “is like learning to get over an addiction to drugs with no opportunity to do the drugs! Or like learning to love one's own enemy without having enemies to deal with.” In other words, it’s much easier to learn lessons while incarnated, so it’s important not to waste opportunities on Earth.
Based on the experience observing those troubled souls, Amy said she was shocked how “earthly” people can be in certain dimensions on the other side. Sudden enlightenment is not automatic for all souls.
Amy’s statement about how sudden enlightenment isn’t automatic for everyone who crosses over makes sense. You carry with you what you’ve earned in each life (including conscious awareness through right action and discipline) and nobody “gifts” you anything, despite how it may appear.
Why had she arrived after her “death” at that area full of self-absorbed and blocked souls who had created their own demise? She admitted she had taken, for many years, strong medications for health problems that were killing her. She had perceived herself as a helpless victim, rather than realizing her power to transform within. Due to the pain and medications, she became self-absorbed and stationary in her personal progress. By observing these unfortunate souls and experiencing so much love and insight on the other side, she was able to let go of all the labels doctors gave her for her health problems, take responsibility for her situation, and heal herself.
After the room of troubled souls, Amy traveled upward and could feel her vibration and frequency changing. She was given a lot of information, much of which she cannot remember, but she believes a lot of it was about law and order of the Universe, that there is a “perfect kind of math” in everything that existed, and how the stars hold a sort of “mathematical key” to all that is. She was also told that many have known about the hidden keys in the stars (presumably, astrology, numerology, and other esoteric sciences), but they’ve been, “corrupted and turned into things of ill or trivial purpose in most cases on our planet.” But also that many were working to bring the knowledge of related systems to purity.
During Amy’s life on Earth, she was taught that everyone had only one life to live. But she couldn’t make sense of why some people suffered so much, while others seemed to live incredibly blessed lives. It seemed unjust and crazy to her. When she asked religious leaders for answers, they gave her answers she felt were weak.
During her NDE, however, she realized that most humans have lived much longer (i.e., multiple lifetimes) than they can even imagine. Also, nothing is by accident or chance, and souls choose their lifetimes. She also learned that one cannot assume suffering is always from bad deeds. There are many reasons souls chose their experiences, such as what it awakens in them, or how they can help others from that place.
The notion that suffering isn’t always from bad deeds (i.e., karma) is vital, and our findings repeatedly support this theory.
Amy said, “God doesn't just get to toy with us as He pleases with random ideas of tests, including rewards and punishments that just depend upon His current mood or mindset. Because even who God is, is within those Laws. While in this experience, out in the vast expanse of stars, planets, moons, and Intelligence, I Knew complete trust for what felt like the first time. This was inexplicable bliss for me. I remember radiating with gratitude. I had lived in fear, distrust, and panic for thirty consecutive years.”
