What's it like to die and come back again?
What it’s like to die and come back again?
Although I was only absent from my body for a short time, indeed I have no idea how long in seconds or minutes that it was, it was still an experience of separation that is valuable to me. Mostly because I didn't go anywhere, it just became separated from my body. The ‘I’ that I know so well was the part that carried on, my sense of self, my personality, my view and vision remained. The only thing that I lost/left behind was my body, and since it was in such damaged, painful state I wasn’t sorry to leave it at that time.
The best word I can describe for the experience is reassuring.
And while I am still as bodily scared of damage as I was before, for example when near vehicles that don’t appear to be properly under control, I do not have a fear of death or the unknown, because it isn’t any more. I describe this in more detail in my forthcoming book “Welcome to Trauma: Why I should have died, my near-death experience & the secrets to my remarkable recovery”
If you are interested in an in depth description of the process and phases after death, I can recommend Neale Donald Walsch’s book ‘Home with God’, which I read a couple of years ago. it has a really helpful description of the stages of death. I clearly only entered the first part, where you have a moment to consider whether this is what you really want, and a chance to return to the same life and continue it.
In the words of Peter Pan, to die would be an awfully big adventure.
Books for supporting all your life choices to stay well and never be ill, including breathing, raw food, breastfeeding, alternatives to vaccinations, and a new ojne on the impact of colour.
