When I had my second NDE, I met my grandmother who had actually passed away before I was born. She spoke to me telepathically, letting me know that I needed to come back. I felt like we had always been together in this life, even though physically, we had not at all. I've had many other very spiritual experiences, where I have met with other family members that have passed, again, some of them I never even got to meet in this physical life. I have also met with pets that have passed over, as well. On the other side, it seems all ego disappears completely; in its place is love, peace, harmony and balance. Hope this helps.
As Rey said, I would also love to hear about your NDEs and any other unusual experiences.
I have never had a NDE, but with out of the body experiences (OBES) and other threshold
experiences, as I call them, I have had the opportunity to meet up with my granddad who died 5 years before I was born, and he also showed me he attended his own funeral with a sense of regret, as if he had divorced his wife and left his family (he was only 52 when he died).
Regarding pets, in a very vivid dream, our 14 year old Yorkshire Terrier came to me twice, one night, and she actually spoke to me using words. She asked me to relieve her of some very bothersome yellow straps she was wearing (she can hardly see or hear, and is no longer able to jump on and off our settee), and I removed them. I then got up fearing she might have left us for good, but there she was, sleeping in her bed. So the next morning I realised she would never be using the settee again, which had been her own property for many years, and I created a much more comfortable place for her. She is still physically here with us, more human than a human being, and follows us around the house, especially in the kitchen when I am cooking. She is like a child in many ways.
But I know there is more work to be done in this area! During one of my two lengthy stays in hospital in 2015, my Dad came to me in an OBE. He was standing on one of those tiny white balconies that are so often seen in the little sea town where he was born. The balcony looked as if it had been completely refurbished and he looked young and healed. He told me something along the lines "Well, you have had your holiday here! [he was referring to the hospital]. I am tired of being pitied and thought of as if I were ill or in discomfort. Do something about it
I realise these situations do not belong to the NDE section, and should be reported in the OBE or ADC areas of the forum, but I find that, if they support what NDErs say, it would be a pity not to mention them when a certain topic is raised.
Looking forward to hearing more from you, Ktj, and do make yourself at home.
