The tunnel and the light in the NDE 03
Type of Spiritual Experience
Occasionally the 'tunnels' may take a different form. They may be rectangular corridors rather than tunnels as such, or they may be long long caves sometimes with water in them. Some people perceive the tunnel to be a valley – 'the valley of the shadow of death' – in which indeed they have no fear of evil, because they have no fear. I will provide a few examples to show the different variations there are on the theme. The following comes from a young man who had kidney failure followed by cardiac arrest
A description of the experience
Closer to the Light – Dr M Morse
I was apparently lying on a table in the intensive care unit when I suddenly found myself standing up and travelling through a very wide tunnel. I couldn't see any walls on either side, but still I had the feeling that this was a tunnel. I also had the feeling that I was moving very fast even though there was no wind blowing on my face.
I knew I was going somewhere, but I didn't know where. I knew there was something for me at the end of the tunnel and I really wanted to get there. As far as I was concerned, there was nothing greater than what existed at the end of that tunnel. Forget my body, forget being alive, all I wanted to do was get to the end.
I reached a certain point in the tunnel where lights suddenly began flashing all around me. They made me certain that I was in some kind of tunnel, and the way I moved past them, I knew I was going hundreds of miles an hour.
At this point I also noticed that there was somebody with me. He was about seven feet tall and wore a long white gown with a simple belt tied at the waist. His hair was golden, and although he didn't say anything, I wasn't afraid because I could feel him radiating peace and love.
'No, he wasn't Christ, but I knew that he was sent from Christ. It was probably one of his angels or someone else sent to transport me to heaven.
