A MAN has described his experience of life after death, claiming to have spoken to Jesus Christ in the afterlife.
The man who only introduced himself as Dan, claims to have vivid memories of meeting Jesus Christ after suffering a heart attack. Dan’s brush with life after death occurred in 2009 when he was taken to hospital and after being treated was declared clinically dead. After the heart attack, Dan said he was transported to the afterlife where he waited in line to enter heaven.
After he returned to his body, Dan immediately wanted to share the details of his so-called near-death experience.
He told the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF): “When I awoke, I told the story of my trip to ‘heaven’.
“Although I had two weeks of morphine dreams, the death experience was very separate and very real.
“I was thrilled with the experience and anxious to share.

“For a few brief moments, I found myself in what seemed like ‘heaven’s front yard’.”
Throughout the experience, Dan said he could feel unconditional love, grace and freedom.
In front of him, Jesus was speaking to another person.
Dan said: “This person had not been a Christian – by religion, or birth – on Earth, but was given the opportunity to choose now.
“I thought this was fantastic. I did not choose to return, but I left there and returned to Earth.
“I don’t remember being asked to choose but now eight months later, some of the details are vague.
“It was crystal clear to me then, and I thought I would never forget every second and every detail.
“Since I couldn’t speak or even write for a long time afterwards, the details suffer.”
Despite the incredible detail in Dan’s story, most experts believe NDEs such as this can be explained through non-supernatural means.

According to Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, many NDE patients see lights, hear voices or have out-of-body experiences.
He said: “A lot of people describe a sensation of separating from themselves and watching doctors and nurses working on them.
“They can hear things and record all conversations that are going on around them.
“Some of them describe a sensation where they review everything that they have done.”
The NDEs could be potentially explained as hallucinations from a lack of oxygen in the brain as a result of cardiac arrest.
Another theory suggests the body naturally releases the psychoactive chemical Dimethyltryptamine at birth and at death.
A third theory suggests NDEs are hallucinations caused by brain cells dying.
In the UK, the NHS does not consider NDEs genuine instances of a person dying.
