I've been dead .... I saw the bright light, felt the warmth and safety of where I was ..... saw myself, meaning my physical body where it was .... and then I was brought back.
Yes there is an afterlife. I believe it's Heaven. There's a reason I felt warm and safe.
I have spoken with several people who describe a warm and comforting feeling.
Two have described Hell. One was a member of a well known cult and the other a total atheist.
What a privilege you have had.
Years ago I had a multiple heart operation, in that several parts of my body were being operated on. This was a second time hospital visit for me for life threatening situations, the first being a victim of the illness that was the cause of death for the Muppets originator Jim Hendrix(?). In both cases I had ‘out of body’ visions or whatever such is called. In both situations there was a guiding visionary spirit. I was allowed to view the very bright space that separated me from the distance but I had to make a choice/decision to go beyond the light. In both cases the “spirit’ did not waste time to come to the conclusion I was not ready by personal inclination or by other purpose to go into through the the light. Obviously I recovered from both situations but the second one sticks in my mind like it is still part of me. I have long believed that the body of this time and day is only transitory to another existence because once our atoms are put together an eternal system is created. What and who acts on this system is a personal enigma. I believe a God creator does exist that/which/who has an eternal say.
