Suicide - Down the well like Alice in Wonderland
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Dr Peter Fenwick - Life at death
Here is another example of a NDE resulting from a suicide attempt:
"In 1963, I nearly died from a suicide attempt. I went down into a deep pit, slowly, like Alice in Wonderland, as if I were in a lift.
"At the bottom it was light and quite busy and bustling. The other people were strangers and although they didn't speak and neither did I, somehow I asked the way and I was told to follow the red light.
"I moved off in that direction. Gradually I found myself in a warm, dark tunnel, alone apart from a sort of presence - not hostile, not friendly, just there.
"Then the red light grew dim and began to flicker and I knew I would have to go back. It was absolutely dark and I was quite alone.
"My body was surrounded by a panicky crowd round the hospital bed. It seemed silly of the people to be making such a fuss. The body had been crying in its sleep and I felt a great pity for it momentarily as I returned.
"I told no one about this as they thought I was a loony anyway, but the experience has stayed with me all these years and I have tried to make sense of it. If it is just an innate limbic response, well ... interesting."
