A MAN who technically died claims he spoke to the ‘Son of God’ in the afterlife in an astonishing near death experience.
A person who just gives his name as Michael has revealed an extraordinary near death experience (NDE) in which he believes he spoke to Jesus Christ. Michael became seriously ill following a collapsed lung for which he required emergency surgery. Following the surgery, Michael said he was in excruciating pain until he could not take it any longer and his body began to give up.
Michael slipped into what he perceived to be the afterlife, before doctors could resuscitate him, leading to an extraordinary NDE.
Writing on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF), Michael said: “I felt myself let go and accept my pain. I immediately felt a warm feeling with no pain whatsoever.
“The way to describe it is when coming out of a cold ocean and walking into the sun on the beach. My body was so warm.
“I felt immediate comfort. I had the faith of a child seeing his Dad as if I had never left him at all. I saw him and he spoke to me, telling me that I wasn’t supposed to be home with him yet.
“He spoke like a Dad, warm and tender but with authority. We were so happy to see each other again. I don’t remember the conversation, but I do recall him saying I need to go, and I didn’t want to go.
“I cried. He comforted me back to my body as I cried to stay with him.
“The one I speak of is the Son of God himself. He has many names, but I know him as Jesus.”
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.”
