There are many NDE (near death experiences) stories around the internet. I thought it may be useful for people if I took some of the more interesting recollections and provided what they mean seen through the context of the Spiritist Doctrine. Please note, these are my interpretations, and other Spiritists may have different or even better explanations.
I truly believe that people who have had NDE experiences had them for a reason. The Higher Spirit Realm is attempting to deliver a message. This message may sound harsh or wonderful, but the message is always given with the aim of allowing the person receiving it to profit from it. The Higher Spirit world is actively guiding us to be better souls and that is their sole reason for their communications.
You have no doubt heard of other communications via mediums, foretelling fortunes, new spouses, etc., these are usually the work of lesser Spirits who enjoy either just participating, showing off, teasing us, or sometimes fooling the recipient. Yes, they are sometimes true, but the gravity of the NDE experience is owned by the part of the Spirit Realm that is of a pure nature and hence totally focused on our current and future behavior.
I have created a book which collects NDE stories and puts them in a kindle format for you to read at your leisure. You can get the book at Amazon. In the book I document what is actually occurring on the other side of the curtain. I illustrate why people who have had NDEs translate their experiences and expose the mystery behind what they can’t explain.
I have also completed a second book covering more NDEs and explaining the fantastic sights and wonders seen by people who have been blessed with a chance to see Heaven (and some see not so great locations!). My latest book on NDEs is The Spirit World Talks to Us – 12 Near Death and Other Experiences.

10/23/16 – A son wrote an account of what his father told him about his near death experience. He sent it to me. The father has since passed away. The NDE was not complicated and followed the theme of many other NDEs, but I record it here to demonstrate how there must have been more people who have had life-changing spiritual episodes; those who didn’t write about their near death experience, didn’t proselytize it to others, and generally didn’t share their journey to the other side, except within a small family circle.

9/29/16 – Daisy Dryden – A normal ten-year-old girl, never exhibiting a predilection for spiritual thought or actions, communicated with the dead, with the spirit world, in the last three days of her life.

What is all the more remarkable, is that her passing occurred in 1864, in San Jose, California, as the Civil War was coming to an end. Read More.
9/11/16 – Lawrence, after reading about Jesus’ last night at the Garden of Gethsemane, spent hours trying to imagine how Jesus felt. The certainty of the upcoming crucifixion. His abandonment by all of his disciples. All of this pushed Lawrence to an emotional state, where one night the spirit realm took him on a journey that would change his outlook and life forever. A peek at the fundamental building blocks of the universe, a treasure trove of knowledge, and a lesson in humility – transformed him. And led him to try to explain exactly who and what we are.

She had given up hope … she laid down, felt her body shutting off and landed immediately in heaven. Read More.
6/19/16 – Diego had an extremely varied near death experience. While many have an out-of-body episode, that seemed to only cover one aspect of their life, such as meeting past family, a life review, or speaking to a high spirit; Diego’s NDE was a tour-de-force, commencing with a life review, a glimpse at the process of spirits traveling back and forth to earth and the newly departed journeying upwards. He conversed with a high spirit and was shown personal future events … and what is most startling; allowed to retain memories of what was revealed. Read More.

7/28/14 – Story from Reddit NDE ( link ) – I tried killing myself when I was 16 after I was brutally raped for a month and held against my will in a small boarded up house. After I escaped, I didn’t want to live any more so I stole a vehicle and drove off a cliff. Apparently it was so bad that they had to literally cut me out of the car.
I remember being in the air, hitting the top of trees and feeling calm. I had a sense that this is it, I am going to die now. All my problems gone. Then there was black, nothing. As if I was just gone and alone. My experience coming back to life was horrible. I had an out of body experience when I came back to my body. It was more like falling. Than my brain turned on and all memories flooded in, who I am came to this body. It made me feel sick as if I drank too much and was disoriented. Slowly I felt calm once again, after my being was back and comfortable. Just curious if anyone else has had this experience?
Response – For some reason there are those who mainly just had a vague feeling of uneasiness and did not retain any memories. I have an article of why memories of NDE are fuzzy – Why memories of NDE’s are Imprecise.
I truly believe that whatever experience you had, the Spirit Realm is trying to give you a message, and while that message may be harsh at times it is always for your own good. Please take their interest in you to heart and look for ways to become a better person. According to Spiritism, to ascend into heaven, you don’t need to be a member of any religion, but be an honorable, charitable, kind person, who controls their materialistic needs (in other words don’t be obsessed with material goods).
There are stories of people being pulled down to a lower region on the internet and they are also messages that the person should change or their future may hold a period of a not so nice spirit existence.
But remember, there is no such thing as eternal hell, spirits go to the places where they think they should go when they die, it may be like hell, but eventually you will receive help and grow out of that location.
