A person named Gabby was clinically dead – which is the cessation of the heart beat or breath – for a short amount of time following an accidental overdose on medicine. Before she could be revived, Gabby believes she spent time in the afterlife.
While there, she believes she met an unspecified higher being, who told her to turn around and go back to her normal body.
However, the experience has completely changed her outlook on life.
Gabby wrote on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation: “I watched the doctor say ‘we are losing her, we are losing her.’
“Then, I was in a tunnel and travelling to a light with a wonderful feeling of love and protection.
“A voice said ‘why have you stopped fighting? Don’t you know I am still with you?’ I was then told that I had to go back.
“I did not want to, but I woke up in a body that had voided and was really manly.
“The doctor was almost in tears and said ‘we nearly lost you’.
“Today I am vegetarian as I feel it is wrong to take life. This is in spite of the fact I love the taste and smell of meat.
“I am studying to become a medium. I have educated myself to a professional level and ensured my daughters are educated, despite my family beliefs.
“I am so unlike what I was, before the experience.”
However, experiences like Gabby’s are not uncommon, with doctors attributing near death experiences to a rush of activitiy in the brain.
Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, said: “People describe a sensation of a bright, warm, welcoming light that draws people towards it.
“They describe a sensation of experiencing their deceased relatives, almost as if they have come to welcome them.
“They often say that they didn’t want to come back in many cases, it is so comfortable and it is like a magnet that draws them that they don’t want to come back.
“A lot of people describe a sensation of separating from themselves and watching doctors and nurses working on them.”
