First it was thought there are only few numbers of NDEs but as the researches were made and this mystery came into light,Psychiatrists started playing their role in more effective way and provided awareness to people many NDEs were encouraged to discuss their own experiences.
A research by Pollster George Gallup,Jr,tells that eight million adults in the united states have had an NDE.That equals one person in 20.He was further able to analyze the content of these NDES by polling for their elements.Here is what he found:
1. Out of body 26 %
2.Accurate visual perception 23%
3.Audible sounds or voices 17%
4.Feelings of peace,painlessness 32%
5.Light phenomena 14%
6.Life review 32%
7.Being in another world 32%
8.Encountering other beings 23%
9.Tunnel experience 9%
Such a poll clearly showed that NDE are much more common in society,but there is a need of bringing them into light.
Now i'm going to quote some true incidents as our minds have now a clear idea that what is meant by the term near-death experience.
a)It happened with Professor Dr.John Marshall.He viewed his apparently dead body from the distance on the hospital bed,while entering into the brilliant light that emanated love,and seeing every event of his life reviewed in a three-dimensional panorama.
b)Another Psychiatrist Dr.George Ritchie had the remarkable experience of passing through a tunnel and seeing beings of light after being declared "dead" because of double pneumonia but later he resuscitated successfully.
Note :In my next post I'll share my own experience dated few years back i.e 2007 September.
I experienced Accurate visual perceptions and audible sounds or voices and bits of light phenomena.What i experienced was something different than all these researches,so it might be pretty confusing to understand.Few people tells me that it was just mental illness,but i don't agree.You can decide what it was and help me solving the mystery as you have clear idea about NDEs.
NEXT: My Own NDE.
