You're right, maybe those are the ones that were not there as long. It could also maybe be because that is not what they needed to see? Maybe everyone that has an NDE gets to see what they need to see, and for everyone that might be different.

I read that some people actually see living relatives during an NDE. I have no idea why that would be.

I don't know anyone personally that has had an NDE. I know one person who was in a bad accident and they said at that moment they saw a couple of family members that have died, but it was not an NDE. The family members were just there for a second.

I have a friend who has a friend who had an NDE. I think the person said he did not see anyone, but was just walking in a green field talking to God. He did not hear a voice, but he was talking to God and knew what God was telling him. From what I was told this person was never the same after his NDE. I have always read that is how you know there is a difference between an NDE and a dream. A dream does not change a person in such profound ways like an NDE does.

I know I can not think about my death too much because it would not be healthy to dwell on dying while still alive, but I do sometimes wonder what I will see when I go. How will it all go for me.

This is comforting that they there will be no condemnation. Unconditional love.

Speaking of seeing a light. I have never told anyone this, but after one of my cats died I had a very scary dream. In my dream my cat was in a dark tunnel, and there was a light ahead, but it looked like it was far ahead. My cat was scared, and did not want to go towards this light. I could not see him in my dream, but I could sense him, I KNEW it was him, and I knew he was scared, the feelings were very real and very intense. I woke up wondering if this dream was telling me my cat was stuck in the tunnel. When he was alive he was always a momma's boy and was scared of even heights (not usual for a cat), and if he jumped up on something he would cry for me to go get him and get him down. If there is a tunnel he had to go through after he died, I can see him getting scared, but I always thought someone is there to help those that are scared.

Thank you My grandmother passed away a few months before he did so hopefully he found her. The dream was not right after he died, I don't remember how long after, but I did wonder if he had been stuck all that time. I never had the dream again so I think he is okay. He is probably laying around resting, and also bugging people to brush him and "do his nails". Yes, my cat loved being brushed and loved having his nails cut. If he saw me brushing my other pets he would push them out of the way, and he would sit in my lap while I brushed him and cut his nails, and I would gently file them for him, and he loved it, haha. He was such a diva.

I've read that too and my thought is that some people are more introspective than others. Like, even the best of us may say or do insensitive things and many people never give it another thought, but more introspective people may return to the situation in their mind and either make amends to that person or at least work out what they did wrong in their mind so they won't do it again. I'm thinking that if they've already done that in life there may be no real reason to repeat the experience at death.

Oh! That would explain why I don't think much of the Life Review, for me, personally...I mean,
I don't need to be shown my mistakes; Trust Me!
Contrition isn't just in a Catholic prayer!
And how I effected people wonderfully ...like ripples in a pond...simply by being kind
or just smiling...I know.

BUT, I am a better person after reading 2 NDEs in particular....summaries...
One guy, lol, only had ONE thing that his 'guide' was very pleased with and said, "Now here you got it right."
When his sister was crying and he went in and held her. ONE THING! hahahahah!

Another, a scene at Seneca Park, NY...was shown how (as a young boy) he stopped and
appreciated how beautiful a tree was...and he got to feeeeel how it made the tree FEEL!

I was never the same! I am not the same after those 2 stories.

That makes a lot of sense!
