Life after death: Afterlife is a ‘dusty garden’ according to NDE sufferer

A PERSON who has given their account of life after death has revealed the afterlife might not be all pretty flowers and glorious sunshine, but rather a dusty garden.

Users on Reddit who have suffered a near death experience (NDE) have been sharing their accounts of what happens in the afterlife. While many of us picture a heavenly realm filled with glorious sunshine and fluffy clouds, one person who had an NDE said this is not the case. The Reddit user who is aptly named IDiedForABit said they died for six minutes when their heart stopped following a severe allergic reaction.

While the Redditor was ‘in the afterlife’, they said they were in a dusty garden which was virtually empty, aside from a young boy and girl.

IDiedForABit said on Reddit: “I remember a feeling of being sucked backwards, extremely slowly, like being pulled through water and this blackness fading in and out.

“At one point it faded back in and I was staring out at a garden.

“It wasn’t filled with flowers, just dust and patchy grass. There was a playground with a merry-go-round in the middle and two children running around it. A boy and a girl.

“It’s difficult to describe but I got the feeling I could choose if I wanted to stay or leave, but every time I tried to go back I was held in place.

“I went through all the reasons I wanted to go back, and when I told the presence I didn’t want to abandon my mother whatever held me finally let go.

“I snapped back into my body. My heart had stopped for six minutes.”

Some researchers, however, have said these visions are a normal phenomenon and not necessarily a sign of an afterlife.

Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, told an Oz Talk: “People describe a sensation of a bright, warm, welcoming light that draws people towards it.

“They describe a sensation of experiencing their deceased relatives, almost as if they have come to welcome them.

“They often say that they didn’t want to come back in many cases, it is so comfortable and it is like a magnet that draws them that they don’t want to come back.

“A lot of people describe a sensation of separating from themselves and watching doctors and nurses working on them.”

    Dr Parnia said there are scientific explanations for the reaction, and says seeing people is not evidence of the afterlife, but more likely the brain just scanning itself as a survival technique.

    He said thanks to modern technology and science “death does not have to be limited to philosophy and religion, but it can be explored through science”.

    He added: “They can hear things and record all conversations that are going on around them.”
