Woman who had NDE 'can't wait to go back'

Some NDEs can be particularly profound. Image Credit: Louis Janmot
A woman who had a transformative near-death experience is now looking forward to experiencing it all again.
Seeing events flashing before your eyes, observing a bright light at the end of a tunnel or feeling as though you are floating above your own body are just some of the things commonly described by patients who have had a near-death experience.

Others, meanwhile, recall meeting lost loves ones or even encountering divine beings.

When 78-year-old Betty Eadie 'died' for a brief time during a hysterectomy operation, her own near-death experience was so profound that she now can't wait to go back and experience it again.

It began, as many such experiences do, with her floating in the air, looking down at her body. She was then told by three 'really ancient men' that she had in fact passed on.

The next thing she knew, she was seeing members of her family around her.
"My husband was sitting in the armchair and I stood next to him, I was concerned because he didn't know I had died, nor had my children, and I was worried for all of them," she told Inside Edition.

"But then I was given a glimpse into their futures and saw they'd all lead good lives."

She even recalled meeting who she believed to be Jesus Christ at the end of a tunnel who hugged her and told her that it was not yet her time.

Before she knew it, she was back in her own body again.

The experience, however, has had a distinct and profound impact on her life.

"I want to go back," she says.

Hi Will If I do not know if a god exists then acts of god are equally subjective so personally I don’t see cause to assign blame to something that has no credible influence. You can chose to believe what you will as it is your choice which is fine. He made his choice just like you or I do, his choice was about his life. I likely would understand but wouldn’t bother with meeting them which is my personal choice.

  Yeah that might be why he ended up in a news article. I think many people end up realizing how detrimental it is to themselves to maintain a grudge of any kind. In the case like his I think most people would just stop holding the grudge without going any further to take steps to meet the person or persons who committed crimes against them. But in a way I can understand doing such a thing. It might help in the healing process if it isn't done to be spiteful.

I’ve read about 5,000 NDEs over the past ten years online and in several books that were not all about NDEs. I would say abut 95% percent of the “resurrected” didn’t want to come back and many were angry at their medical professionals for bringing them back — some had small children. I’d say about 20% maybe less of the experiencers were either atheist or agnostic going in and atheist and agnostic coming out. I found this most interesting.  And there were a good amount who lost their religion altogether as well. One recent story of a atheist woman who died said she met her spirit g... [More]

A point that's generally tough to argue with, but some of the themes of Frankenstein come to mind as far as potential responsibility of creators: "Accursed creator! Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust? God, in pity, made man beautiful and alluring, after his own image; but my form is a filthy type of yours, more horrid even from the very resemblance. Satan had his companions, fellow devils, to admire and encourage him, but I am solitary and abhorred."   Truly one of the saddest and most tragic characters ever (Shelley's Creature obviously, not Karlof...

"What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable! In action, how like an angel, in apprehension, how like a god! The beauty of the world! The paragon of animals!" Hamlet        Shakespeare Truly a masterpiece of irony about a quintessence of dust.

Right, and I'd like to think that your quote applies to more people than mine IRL and is thus more applicable.  And your original comment is nuanced; a mere 'creator' of the sentient/divine variety doesn't necessarily have any more obligation than creation by the natural world to its creatures as you noted, makes no more sense as you said to hold a grudge against such a god than it is to hold a grudge against an impersonal universe. I think it's the more religious definition of not just 'creator' but 'Father' that gets more problematic in Frankenstein's creature scenarios.

I like the scenario of Ted Sturgeon's Microcosmic God story where a scientist creates an intelligent microscopic race that breeds, dies and innovates at a fantastic rate, disconcertingly like human beings do on the cosmic scale. A highly secretive and reclusive biochemist named Kidder produces inventions that transform human life, spanning every aspect of science and engineering. Kidder is a brilliant scientist, but can only take others' ideas and turn them into usable products - he cannot innovate. Consequently, he gets impatient with the slow progress of innovation by humans, and develops a... [More]

Which god? There are many but there is only ONE Source. It seems to me that most people become atheists as a refsult of the Bible which has given The One Source sometimes called “God’ a bad reputation.

Exactly. That why one must seek as an individual, not a follower, that one may find what one will.
