The bridge or barrier in the NDE 02
Type of Spiritual Experience
There is a barrier between the holding area and the Spiritual world at large – the final resting place. It is possible to cross this barrier whilst you are alive, but it is well guarded and you have to have already learnt a good deal about the layout of the spiritual world as well as 'earned your spurs' so to speak.
The dead cross it anyway, irrespective. The most frequent barrier seen is a bridge which can take any number of different forms. It often crosses an abyss – it should be noted that for the living spiritual traveller this bridge and abyss represents a very severe challenge – the guardians are formidable and the bridge can be razor thin. Its thickness usually depends on how well qualified you are to pass.
The various forms this bridge takes depends a bit upon our expectations.
Six year old Daniel was struck by a car whilst riding his bicycle and received a head trauma. He was comatose for two weeks. He remembered almost nothing of the accident or of the moments before. He remembered getting his bicycle out of the garage and riding down the driveway, but it is what happened after he was struck that is key here.......
A description of the experience
Closer to the Light – Dr M Morse
I was standing there watching the doctors load me into the ambulance, when I saw that I was outside my body. My mom was crying and everyone was in a hurry.
When I got to the hospital, I watched the doctors put tubes in me. I looked yucky because I was bloody and bruised.
I then went down a tunnel that was dark. At the end of the tunnel was a bright light. I wasn't sad and I wasn't happy, but I did want to get to the Light. When I got to it, I met three men. One was very tall and the other two were short. Behind them was a rainbow bridge that stretched across the sky. They seemed nice, but I was afraid of them anyway.
All of a sudden I was back in my body. I looked down at my feet and the men were there. Then they disappeared and I was completely back
