H***********g: I was getting an angiogram done, wide awake watching the screen and talking to the doctor. Alarms started to go off and everyone became panicked. My world became soft and foggy and everything faded to black. Next thing I remember was opening my eyes and hearing a Dr say "we got him back". It was really a peaceful feeling more than anything.
I***o: In Buddhism, Daoism, and many other meditative believe systems, [nothingness] is called the void and it is inevitable for everyone. However, the reason some people are scared of it is simply because they don't realize the potential of the void. They have spent their entire life trying to be SOMETHING to be SOMEONE to forge an identity, they never realized that they came from the void and would return to the void - they never practiced the discipline of attempting to return back to their true state in meditation (the act of being hollow and empty).
In all actuality, the void is everything - it is all life, the primordial ooze that meditators seek to return to. When you see it in the right light - a blank canvas with the ability to become anything - the void is no longer terrifying, but the beginning of all things, especially a new life.
b****************y: Pure, perfect, uninterrupted sleep, no dreams.
S**********s: I don't want to get into details about the leading up to because it was extremely traumatic, but I'll describe the experience from the point when I "died".
Unknown: I felt as though my mind was no longer what I was, and it was like a TV channel changing in my perception, the world my 'human body' was perceiving was not all that there was and I didn't have any vivid visions or anything, but more a feeling of ultimate peace/wellbeing/safety/lack of any concern - very very calming, the ultimate calm, and I remember I thought "I wish I could have known this, I would tell people this, this isn't a bad way to die at all" but I was "sad" in a very detached and abstract way about my family losing me and I was thinking "darn that will be a little bit hard for them", but it seemed very small in comparison with the feeling of "the other channel" of reality that I felt I was perceiving... (continued)
S*******h: I felt a feeling of rushing upwards, with a bright, cream colored light ahead of me. There were a lot of indescribable colors in the beams of this bright light. All while I could see this, it felt like I had relived every second of my life in an instant, and I could even hear some of my friends talking to me.
Then it got quiet.
Then I could hear singing. It sounded like bells... there was a fog all around me, and I saw my best friend (who at the time I'd been fighting with and he'd stopped talking to me) come out of the mist. He told me that I couldn't go yet, that I have to keep trying, and if I promised not to give up, he'd see me back on Earth. I wordlessly agreed, and I was instantly pushed (into?) my body... I don't really know what happened. Part of me wants to believe it was the afterlife, part of me believes it was a chemical reaction.
I haven't told this story a lot because I have met a lot of assholes who have completely shit on my opinion or called me stupid/crazy for thinking what I do, but today, I thought maybe it'd be useful to someone out there.
m**************r: What I remember is a vast nothingness; it's hard to describe, as we're always surrounded by something wherever we go. Suddenly in this vast nothing was a blinding pinprick of light that got larger. Either I was moving towards it, or it was moving towards me. As it got closer, what appeared to be a single light resolved into first one, then several, then millions upon millions of stars of all shapes, sizes, and colors, along with tons of nebulae. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. As I approached the center, it seemed like I was joining a universal consciousness; a being made up of the thoughts, emotions, and experience of everyone and everything that had ever lived. I'm sure it was all just a hallucination brought on by the trauma I had suffered the few days combined with my heart/breathing stopping, but there's a part of me that hopes that what I saw is what really happens when we die.
C*******5: Right before I died, there was this undeniable peace.
It's almost indescribable,
nothing mattered, I could hear everything...
...but there was this moment when I knew I could let go, and it wouldn't hurt or matter... it would just be easy.
Next thing I know, I'm back. I knew I was gone, but it wasn't the right time.
I no longer fear death today. It makes it easier now to accept it.
