My whole life kind of flashed in front of me
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Life after Life – Dr Raymond Moody
The whole situation developed very suddenly. I had had a slight fever and had not felt well for about 2 weeks, but this night I rapidly became very ill and I felt much worse. I was lying in bed and I remember trying to reach over to my wife to say that I was very sick, but I found it impossible to move.
Beyond that I found myself in a completely black void, and my whole life kind of flashed in front of me. It started back when I was six or seven years old, and I remembered a good friend I had in grammar school. I went from grammar school to high school to college, then to dental school and then right on into practising dentistry.
I knew I was dying and I remember thinking that I wanted to provide for my family. I was distraught that I was dying and yet that there were certain things that I had done in my life that I regretted, and other things that I regretted that I had left undone.
This flashback was in the form of mental pictures, I would say, but they were much more vivid than normal ones. I saw only the high points, but it was so rapid it was like looking through a volume of my entire life and being able to do it within seconds. It just flashed before me like a motion picture that goes tremendously fast, yet I was fully able to see it, and able to comprehend it. still, the emotions didn’t come back with the pictures, because there wasn’t enough time.
I didn’t see anything else during this experience. There was just blackness, except for the images I saw….. It is really interesting. When I recovered, I could tell everyone about every part of my life, in great detail, because of what I had been through. It’s quite an experience, but it’s difficult to put into words, because it happens so rapidly, yet it’s so clear
