A description of the experience
Near death experiences - Ornella Corazza
OBEs are also very common among children. Mrs H. Pelling remembers very clearly the out-of-body experience she had when she was 6 years old. At that time she was very ill in hospital after an operation for peritonitis.
My recollections are of being up in the corner of the ceiling at the end of the ward, completely encompassed in this most brilliant light with an ecstatic feeling of warmth and comfort, looking down at myself in bed, with the vicar and ward sister kneeling at my bedside in prayer giving me the last rites (so I was told years later). I can still see it all as clearly now, all these years later. I remember the doctor saying to my mother on later visits, 'It was a miracle, she had the will to live.'
