Has anyone here had what they believe to be a glimpse of the afterlife?

We talk about the afterlife as if we blinked into existence only when we were born but I totally get why that is - been there, done that from a similar point many years ago.

Some young children may indeed be thought to be in touch with the spiritual side of life - 'Heaven' - because it's not long since they left it when they incarnated into this physical world. Accepting that should suggest Heaven isn't just a 'place' we get to after death but also the place we left when we chose to incarnate. We were alive before we entered this world.

The reactions of those who tell their story, sometimes reluctantly, of a glimpse into the next world or an encounter with an entity not of this physical world, range from deep uncertainty thru complete persuasion. Not doubt or uncertainty about what was experienced but about its interpretation. For some the occurrence is immediately life-changing but for others it may happen more slowly or later in life. Yet others find they are left doubting what they experienced and/or what to make of it but may be helped by listening to others' accounts and discussions.

If an afterlife does exist, then I agree that it is not only a "place" we go after death, but is also where we were before this life (and between lives, if reincarnation exists and for those who choose to participate in it). I have always felt that it is like that, if it exists at all -- is that not the common viewpoint?

"Yet others find they are left doubting what they experienced and/or what to make of it but may be helped by listening to others' accounts and discussions." -- yep, that's me. ;)

The common viewpoint? I have no idea, bb, but few ever ask or talk about a 'before-life'.
 
I just posted a thread on the website which has to do with this, before seeing this thread of yours. I'm going to copy and paste what I wrote there, below:

"
I died earlier this year (2021) after my body went completely freezing cold and my heart stopped (I'm not going to provide full details on the event).
After that, I went through a large sequence of rather "unexplainable phenomena" during my 'death experience' (whatever that even means) which felt like it lasted a long time.

5 to 6 days later (apparently) I appeared in a "hospital" and was told I was "in a coma for 5-6 days".
Furthermore, the doctor said, "Don't let it happen again, because next time, we can't bring you back" in a very matter-of-fact way as if you only get a "you get resurrected one time card" (pardon my humor here...but believe me...none of this was funny at all).
This all happened in tandem with an event of a paramedic putting me in the back of an ambulance saying, "I remember my last life, it was confusing" before shutting the doors on me.

Let's just say I am extremely lost as to what in the actual hell is going on because as an educated college-graduate medical professional who used to be the supervisor for large hospitals, this is not what I learned throughout my entire life in any education.
Something is not adding up and I've been in "spiritual grief" about what has been going on since this experience.


Am I the only one that's in this 'place' experiencing everything like this?
Has anybody else literally been dragged through a large rainbow tunnel by multidimensional creatures while being in a strange astral-void form and then entered a quiet quantum plane and room, only to be dragged back to their body with a very "broken existence" that occurs afterwards where nothing is making sense? And yes, that is what happened to me. I remember it, clearly, more vivid and real than anything one could ever "imagine" in this human life.

This (post-death experience) has literally been the most awful and alone experience 'imaginable' and I am hoping to find a place where others have shared some sort of rendition of the true pain, hell, and torment I've been experiencing and experienced; moreover, I'm hoping that somebody has an answer as to how to make "this new experience" all stop and overcome the horrors of what are faced post-death.

I know this probably sounds like "nonsense" to some people and quite frankly I don't care. Believe me, I thought one of the last things I would have ever done in my entire life would be to logon an afterlife forum at 2:52 AM to write this post. I would have bet 1 in 1 trillion against the odds of me ever doing that without even blinking an eye.
I'd like to add there's an entire hospital with records, LAPD, and a psychiatrist that can attest to the truth of all of this, as well as my family member who watched me die on their hallway floor, as well as a host of unanswered...questions.
As much of disbelief as some people possibly are, I am just as much in disbelief.

I welcome any responses...
Thank you....

If you want me to further elucidate my "experiences", although I'm a bit concerned that the Universe hates me right now for sharing them or even making it a possibility (I have reasons for me saying this right now, by the way, trust me), feel free to ask..... I'm still sitting here searching for answers, desperately.

Maybe try Bernardo Kastrup or one of these other consciousness researchers. He has plenty of YouTube videos online. You might well glean something from them which will help you. If the content was frightening, it is not a judgement on your character as I've heard Bruce Greyson say (definitely look him up at the University of Virginia, Division of Perceptual Studies).

I saw your postings arrive in early morning PST EST. Rarely a good sign when someone is awake and writing in the dead of night. Please, please, please take a look around this website at some of the forums and the subject discussions in them. I hope you will see we're well used to the subjects you've mentioned and I personally have no reason to doubt what you've told us. Please relax - you're in like-minded company here.

Thanks for the input. Do you have any specific videos from him or others?

May I suggest you don't spend time looking online at 'stuff' and at web videos etc? Not until you've begun to understand what's been happening to you......
