I thought the TV show that aired last night was very interesting. It showed two very interesting people describe their individual NDEs.
Sandy had a NDE during the time that she drowned while white water rafting. She described seeing images of her sons when they were older than they currently were then having an out of body experience where she was looking at her body from above.
Matthew had his NDE after being shot in the head. He described the more unusual experience of going to hell and was convinced of the presence of evil. His NDE then changed when the darkness was penetrated and a large hand appeared to help him and then he heard a voice saying ‘It’s not your time’.
What was very also helpful was the testimonies of people who witnessed the events and who verified how close to death they had both been. Despite Matthew having an extensive gun shot wound to the head and having undergone a cardiac arrest where his heart had stopped for over four minutes and despite Sandy being under the water for almost five minutes, I found it remarkable that neither one suffered any hypoxic brain damage. This is yet another aspect of NDEs that is difficult to explain.
Following his NDE Matthew has been left with absolutely no fear of death but also wants to tell everyone that there is a hell. He reiterated that based on the choices he now makes in his life he is not going back to hell.
It was apparent that both were left with feelings of great love for others. Matthew emphasised how strong his love for his wife is. Sandy also talked about her NDE giving her a lesson of self worth and how much she loves her sons. It ended with Sandy saying how important it is to cherish those you love and to let them know that you love them.
What an interesting TV show and what great people both Sandy and Matthew were to share such emotional experiences with so many people. I look forward to next weeks show.
