I am convinced that there is a life before and after physical death.
Personal testimonies of long-term near-death survivors
- What I see is who I am.
And what I am is what I see; for there are no borders, nowhere separation, nowhere inside and nowhere an outside! What I see is happening, and what happens is me.

And also all the contents of the unconscious. I see how the events took place, and I see how I bent them myself when i was saving them. simultaneous. There is no linearity, no chronology.Chronology is a self-delusion of the living who think they can make a career and love from marriage to funeral.

[… And then there was this extreme euphoria. It is paradoxical that perhaps the happiest moment of my life was the one in which I was physically the worst.

When I go again, let me.” David R. Wheeler, Journey to the Other Side, 97, Ace Books, New York, 1977
He said to me, “You must not go out of the tunnel, otherwise you will never come back. Turn around, you’re still needed.” I then went back down the tunnel, although it would have been nicer on the other side. Günter Ewald, On the Threshold to the Beyond, p. 42, Matthias-Grünewald-Verlag, Mainz, 2001
It was very realistic. I was able to glide through the wall of the kreißsaal and floated down through the rooms of the hospital. I don’t know what I actually looked like. I think I was a transparent cloud, but despite my appearance, no one seemed to notice that I was floating very close to them through the air. I suppose I was invisible to them, even though I could see and hear them very well.
Ian Currie, Nobody Dies Forever, p. 186, First edition 1993, Orbis, 1st edition 2000
I was in great pain. Then the pain was suddenly over, and I looked down at those who were struggling with me. I heard a doctor say he couldn’t find the pulse anymore. Next I went through a tunnel up to a bright light. But I never got to the end of the tunnel. A soft voice told me i had to return. Then I met a dear friend, a neighbor from the city from which we had moved. He also told me to repent. As if hit by an electric shock, I popped up on the hospital bed, and the pain was back. Now I was driven to the operating room as soon as possible, where the bleeding was to be brought to a halt surgically. It wasn’t until weeks later that my husband found that I was well enough to tell me: the dear friend there in the other city had died in a car accident on the day my daughter was born.

I saw them closely. I was in the middle of a narrow sidewalk. So in any case they walked past me and obviously didn’t see me at all. They just kept running and looked stubbornly straight. As soon as they got very close, I tried to turn to the side to let them pass by – but they actually ran through me!

I wasn’t a body, just a smoke thread or a vapor veil. It looked most like the clouds of cigarette smoke floating around a lamp. The figure I became, however, had colors. There was orange, yellow and a hue that I can’t pinpoint – I saw it as indigo, a bluish nuance.
