A description of the experience

Near death experiences - Ornella Corazza

Mrs C. was 66 years old at the time of the interview. She studied Tai Chi and became a Grand Master (the highest level in the discipline). She had an NDE in October 1975 as a result of a long period of sickness. She was considered clinically dead for an unknown period of time. She had a vision of a river which separated her side from that of the 'spirit world'. A rainbow bridge connected the two sides of the river. Once she regained consciousness she gave the following account:

My father came to greet me. We walked together for a little while and then he left me and crossed over a 'rainbow bridge'. I was about to follow him but he told me not to do so. He said to me: 'Go home, go home!' Then, I woke up.
