The bridge or barrier in the NDE 03
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. Sometimes it is a river with a ferryman.
A description of the experience
Closer to the Light – Dr M Morse
I remember leaving my physical body and seeing the transport team carrying me out of the house! I was following above them as they loaded my body into the ambulance.
I didn't go with it. Instead I briefly went into my sister's head and saw the world through her eyes.
Then I saw my father weeping as he got into the car to take the family to the hospital. He was sure I was going to die, and I felt sorry that my possible death was causing him this kind of pain.
I went ahead to the hospital to see what kind of room I was going to get. I saw a girl who was about 12 years old in the room that I was supposed to go into. Since I was so sick, they decided to move her and give me the room alone.
I then left the earth and travelled down a long tunnel. I came to a bright opening and passed through it. Out in the brightness I was engulfed by fog. There seemed to be a border, something like a waterline on the beach that separated me from the true light. I knew that if I entered the light I would not return to my body.
The light was all love, all knowing, and the sky was warm and friendly. I was trying to decide whether I should go into the light or not when I returned to my body
