Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

At the age of 10 Paul ran into his kitchen and slipped on a wet floor. He landed on his stomach so hard that he ruptured his spleen. According to his medical records, he swelled with fluids and went into shock from internal bleeding. His parents rushed him to hospital where his heart stopped. Thus this example is an example of cardiac arrest following on from blood loss

A description of the experience

Closer to the Light – Dr M Morse

I left my body, although I still felt like I was connected to it by a string. I floated up to a corner of the room and watched as three doctors worked frantically to rescue me. I was sure I was going to die, and I have to admit that I found their efforts to save me kind of funny.

I then went down a long tunnel and approached a warm light. At the other end of the tunnel, I was met by a being who talked to me. I thought of him as a greeter then, and that is what I still call him. He was a greeter.

The greeter was not in a physical form. Rather, he was more a feeling or an awareness. He told me that I could not stay in the tunnel, that I had to either go back or continue on. If I continued, there would be no return.

I didn't make an actual decision to return, but I did get an idea from the greeter that there was purpose to my life.

While I was thinking about whether to stay or return, I felt myself enter my body. I was about the size of a BB when I went into my body. Then I expanded and filled up the space.

For a while I longed for that light. Then I realised that someday I would see it again. In the meantime I had things to do
