What happens when we die – Dr Sam Parnia

I've suffered with asthma for many years and have been hospitalised and had close calls several times, but this time was different.... I went through a tunnel …..... when I came out of the tunnel I was in a pearly mist place . It was then that I thought 'I've died'

But to make sure, I went back to my body.  There was no heartbeat, no breath, I couldn't make it move or speak, so I concluded 'yeah definitely dead' and went back into the pearly place where I reminded myself there was nothing to fear.  At that instant I was on a different level.

Here all was soft gold, including me. All of life's fears and worries seemed so unimportant, so absolutely nothing to worry about, and all our fearful fretting seemed so unnecessary.

I was aware that behind me stretched infinity, that all the people I'd ever known, knew now and even would know were there, all made out of this golden light, all made of the same stuff, and so truly we are all one.  I saw this like a liquid golden ocean out of which each person rose, made of the ocean, in their own individual shape, but all one originally, basically.  Many loved ones were there and endless joy
