    There is nothing to fear, my dear Storybud68. No point worrying over something that you cannot control. I died in 2006 and spent a week in the afterlife, while life-supporting machines kept my body alive in an ICU. Had the time of my life, can't wait to return to the beautiful realm that I love so dearly once again.

    That's very intriguing, Malcolm. Can you remember it all quite clearly?

    Absolutely. Induced coma due to a serious underlying illness. Gradual transition into the afterlife and back again, no head trauma or brain swelling so I remember most if not all of it.

    Thank you for posting, Malcolm, and NDEs really are wonderful! It is important to note, however, that those that we used to think were dead and even such experts as Dr. Raymond Moody (the man who wrote Life After Life and coined the term near-death experience) tell us consistently that death is always a one-way trip. Those who have extensive NDEs are traveling in the astral realms, many of which mimic the genuine afterlife areas and where we typically meet with loved ones and guides while our bodies sleep. Many extensive NDEs include a moment when the experiencer is told that he has come to a barrier, and if he continues he will be dead and won't be able to return to life; and that is reportedly a genuine barrier. Just want to clarify, since NDEs and natural deaths are so entirely different in process that unless we keep making this clear we can confuse readers here.

    I understand the point you're making, and your account is interesting, but to define 'corporeal death' there has to be the element of finality of incarnate life. Based on what you've said your animating spirit - the 'real you' so to speak - was spending time away 'on holiday' while your physical body was recovering, supported by machines in the intensive care unit of the hospital.

    Using the parameter that death is irreversible, you spent a week away from life in this world while your physical body was being supported. Had you died, had the so-called silver cord become severed, you wouldn't be here now and talking about it. ;)

    You could call it a near-death-experience albeit a protracted one.

    Hi Robert

    I clearly hear what you are saying, but I never had an NDE. I had a DE (death experience) as I was DEAD for eight days. Undoubtedly! Left my body, met by a helper in the ICU, escorted by him into the various afterlife realms, re-united with deceased friends and family along the way, learned a heap of stuff, then after 8 days, my helper returned me to the ICU in Sydney. The next time the doctors tried to arouse me, after failing repearedly for 7 days, they were successful. I have written a 30,000 word account of my DEATH EXPERIENCE. Would you like to read it?

    It's actually 'Roberta' and I expect a number of us might be interested in hearing about your experience.

    You don't need the silver cord anymore. Thanks to advancements in intensive care medicine and high tech cardio pulmonary resuscitation, the cord can be severed, yet it is possible to come back. Times are changing fast, both on earth and in the afterlife...

    False. Show me a video or a reputable article stating this. A good friend of mines is a nurse and even he would look baffled at that statement.

    Oops. Sorry Roberta, my apologies. Of course, I would love share my exoerience for free, with whoever wishes to read it. Been 10 years in the making, it is now complete. Any suggestions?

    Who told you the silver cord is no longer needed to sustain life?

    Post it here. If it's too long for a single posting, do it in sections.

    Sure Roberta. Got nothing to hide. It is 30,000 words long, 6 chapters, maybe one chapter at a time. Is there a section on your forum that is best to post it?

    This obviously needs to be moderated.

    What I am aaying, it is possible to DIE and then return these days, thanks to IC medicine. I was DEAD. Had they turned off the machines, I would have remained dead. But they did not. On day 8 of coma, I decided to return from the spirit world to the ICU in Sydney, and then 'willed' my way back to my body when they next tried to arouse me. There was no SILVER CORD

    Problem is, Malcolm, that individuals who are generally acknowledged as being highly-spiritually-evolved explain that the so-called silver cord is our 'lifeline', the tether that keeps body and animating spirit together to put it crudely. It's also explained that at 'death' this cord is severed, the sprit being freed from its physical companion and returning whence it came before it took on an earth incarnation.

    I'm sure you mean well and I'm equally sure your account will make interesting reading, but unless something has changed, something we ordinary folk don't know about leading to a new set of values concerning physical death then I for one am not persuaded by your hypothesis. I'll later give an alternative to the conclusions you've drawn if anyone seems interested in hearing it.

    How much do you know about the so-called silver cord that enables you to be so confident that yours wasn't in operation?

    Things are changing fast. Anyhow, I will stick with my experience, not the theory, as well meaning as it is.
