Celebrity NDEs offer hints of life after death

Several famous figures have opened up about their own personal near-death experiences over the years.
For some, the sensation of departing one's body following traumatic injury or cardiac arrest can be a life-changing event - an experience that sticks with them long after they have physically recovered.

Back in 1992, actress Elizabeth Taylor opened up during an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show about what she had experienced while doctors battled to save her life during surgery in 1962.

Most vivid were her memories of departing from her body and observing the doctors working on her. She also recalled going through a tunnel and seeing her third husband Mike Todd who died in 1958.

She had wanted to stay with him, but he had told her that she had to go back.

Another famous actress, Jane Seymour, also had a near-death experience after going in to anaphylactic shock following an antibiotic injection at the age of 36.

"I had the vision of seeing a white light and looking down and seeing myself in this bedroom with a nurse frantically trying to save my life and jabbing injections in me," she said.

"It gave me a perspective of how fragile life is and made me appreciate what's important."

Actress Sharon Stone, who suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2001, described experiencing "the whole white light thing" and maintains that she encountered people she knew who had died.

"I started to see and be met by some of my friends... people who were very, very dear to me [who had died]," she said. "I had a real journey with this that took me to places both here and beyond."

"But it was very fast - whoosh! Suddenly, I was back. I was in my body."

Too much for me to bother with right now. I'm about to go to bed.† That's simply not true. You're familiar with the AWARE project are you not? I'm sure we have discussed it.†

Travellers takes Abrahamic mysticism and creates a tv series about time travellers based on it. A traveller is a free mason, its one of the phrases they use to described themselves to identify each other. The director is God.

It sounds more like your first post than a religious take. I assume you have not seen an episode? It's like you just reversed the time travel concept of the show and boom. Theory.†

I reckon your overthinking it.†

I think that is fascinating. †Problem is, these experiences donít seem to be consistent among all people. †Thereís a skeptic here on the forum named Xenofish who claims to have also had two NDEís, I believe, and he didnít experience any afterlife, or even recollection at all. PS. †Iím of the opinion that many or most celebrities are completely wacked, so....while I respect their experience and testimony, I agree with the poster who said their stories are no more or less credible than anyone elseís.

confused here. If one has no recollection of anything, is it an NDE by definition or simply that a person died and was revived? I think in the projects trying to track NDEs over half of those who are brought back have no memories to report?

Yes. †I think you are correct on that statistic as my memory serves, and probably correct on both points. †It is in fact an NDE if the person was revived, whether they remember anything or not. †Itís just interesting that some do have a memorable and life changing experience with the afterlife and others do not.

No I had been fighting back, hard, for what seemed like forever. I was in a moment of surrender when I came back above the water. Not saying it was divine intervention or anything, just saying I donít know how it happened.† I remember seeing that yellow sun turn white, and literally saying to myself that no matter what happened next, it was going to be alright.† † ETA- It could have been as simple as the current taking an upswing. My 14 year old mind did believe I had work yet to be done though I must admit. My 42 year old mind doesn't outright dismiss that possibility either.

From what I've seen the best cases are where people die quickly and unexpectantly. Heart attacks, car accidents, etc. Even in those cases only around 25% recall an experience. From the POV of an ER doctor that's still many cases over a career.
