My first near death experience came after my grandmother passed away.
Being in grief and being terribly vulnerable at the time was undeniably, excruitiatingly painful. However, what then followed was more painful.
I was thrown into multiple spiritual experiences, which at the time, scared the hell out me.
One night, I went to bed as normal and it was just after midnight when I began to see the light and it was at the end of a tunnel. The light was piercingly bright, much like the image here. With the tunnel of light going straight up.
I don’t remember anything else. I expect I went back to sleep. It was now approximately 3 in the morning. I was awoken by seeing gold and silver energy at the foot of my bed. It was like I could reach out and touch it.
This was very real. So real I switched the lamp on at about 3.30am frozen with terror, wide awake in a state of shock, sitting upright in my bed with my back against the wall not knowing what was happening. I could still see the gold and silver energy with the light on and it stayed there for about half an hour. The lamp stayed on until 9am.
I called upon my beloved Grandmother for help, saying, “Nan if you’re here, please help, I don’t know what’s going on!” She appeared – only to be also standing at the foot of my bed laughing at me saying to me,
“You’re safe, you’re always safe Trish ” And she kept laughing!
I called my Reiki master that morning, just after 9, (he did not answer my phone call at 3am oddly enough!) and he laughed as well and said, “your crown chakra is open”. Funny for him and my Nan. Scary for me.
At the time it was if I was being pulled up to the light to be with Nan and this was some months after she had passed.
We were very, very close and I am the eldest child – her first grandchild.
Both of us are Pisceans by the way. The ancient sacred geometry (reality is based on patterns which repeat in endless cycles), of Vesica Piscis (the intermingling and fluidity of different realities/different worlds), comes to mind. The beauty of this old geometry has more significance than ever before and makes so much sense.
If you look at the image and see the 4 circles and assume that they are 4 individuals, then each of the the individuals’ energy field merges with the others.
Hence, the very reason you must choose positive thoughts! You attract others by what you think and when you do they impose upon you as well because of your thought (and electrical) connection! Even though it was blindlingly obvious, it has taken me a long time on a deeper level to understand why. Initially thinking, oh yeah, be positive, when cynicism was predominant.
It felt like I was dying as well. I did not know if I was trying to go with her or whether I was being pulled up with her.
I was exhausted. It took all my will and more. I had very little psychic energy to sustain me and go forward. People would impose upon me saying all sorts of things and bully me and laugh, thinking I had no boundaries. Sickeningly relishing any further ground they thought they had gained or further injury they think they could cause. I am far from being a pushover. That’s when little fish easily morph into whales
People failed in their observations and understandings and mistook my kindness as a weakness. Highly aggressive and insecure people saw me as a target for their destructive energies. I remained strong under unbelievable pressure. I ignored them and their karma came very quickly. I did not have to do anything. The universe protected me. I did not even ask.
Sometimes I began to think that my head had to be hanging off for people to recognise that I was in great suffering.
Little did they know the will and the strength I came back with from the process of losing one’s essential life-energy to beyond death and summoning it back into top gear again. Near-Death Experiences can be horrifying and felt as real as death can be.
Although a lot of people have had NDEs when they are physically close to death, I have known other people who have had NDEs when people close to them have died as well.
I also know that NDEs can be very liberating, but at the time for me it was not.
Since then, people and animals come to me when they are dying. I feel that they are asking me to take them to the light. They know I have been there. They seek protection and/or comfort and know they are protected with me. This has happened many times now.
Since I did not know what an NDE was, nor did I know what profound experiences happen during and after the event, it has taken a long time to understand what happened to me and voice it.
(As an aside to this post: I think if you experience utter exhaustion of this kind, you may like to try this for a few days. This might sound quite odd in the middle of this post, but it’s not. I have been adding 2cm of fresh ginger to my daily juice. The benefits are amazing! Pineapple, orange & ginger are fantastic.)
I don’t “believe in” NDEs, rather it is my scientific conclusion that near death experiences are real. Our right temporal lobe permits the opening of a quantum connection with nonlocal reality, at the point of death. Near-Death Experiences are the dying experience and that’s a scientific fact, not an opinion.”
I have been also reading lately that the drug DMT (Dimethyltryptamine) (also known as Ayahuasca (pronounced “i-a-waska“) -an Amazon Shaman medicine), and Ketamine (a powerful anaesthetic) can induce Near-Death Experiences for healing from cancer, drug addictions, cancer etc.
Why? Because they take you into Delta brainwaves. You can teach your mind to access healing Delta brainwaves upon command without experimenting with those, using Gerald O’Donnell’s Remote Viewing & Remote Influencing Course.
I do not subscribe to taking any kind of drug although some people have had healings through ketamine and ayahuasca (DMT). Meditation, Remote Influencing and Hypnotherapy can heal you without the need to go through such a painful process!
“God is essentially the sum total of the physical laws which describe the universe. I do not know of any compelling evidence for anthropomorphic patriarchs controlling human destiny from some hidden celestial vantage point, but it would be madness to deny the existence of physical laws.”
I will completely agree with Einstein here. -Trish
“Probably a dozen times since their death I’ve heard my mother or father, in an ordinary conversational tone of voice, call my name. They had called my name often during my life with them … it doesn’t seem strange to me.”
