There is probably going to be a wall of text and no short explaination.

A couple years ago, before my 18th birthday (I'm 19 turning 20 soon), I had a moment where I died for a while. I was just talking to my dad for one moment, and then BAM!!! dead the next. When I died, I felt my soul leave my body. I don't know where my soul went exactly, but I could feel (I don't even know if you can call it this) my souls emotions. It felt abandoned and hopeless. Makes me wonder what really happens to our souls. Was that my very own hell? It wasn't a peaceful feeling. anyway, thats sort of of topic. When I came to life again, I felt my soul return, except it didn't feel the same. I can personally say that I can still feel the soul inside my body but I question if it is really mine. After that incident, my life began to change. I became ambidextrious (sp? the ability to use both hands just as equally) when before, I was right handed. Been having premonitions every day since that day, something that never happened to me before. After the day I died, I got really confident in a car at fast speeds (previously in a car wreck and had issues with driving). I know these things seem simple, but my attitude towards life changed, my thoughts changed. I was going out with a most wonderful girl at the time when the death experience occured. She broke up with me months later saying, quote, "I don't know who you are anymore". A lot of people have told me around that point in time that I changed but I never saw it before until a terrible thought filled my head today. I don't think I am me anymore. I'm begining to wonder if I'm a puppet and whatever soul is inside of me is pulling the strings. I imagine that this sounds insane and stuff, but I feel incomplete and I don't like what I am becoming.

Has anyone heard of any other cases like mine? From a paranormal stand point, does it sound possible?

Didn't read the wall of text, will do so in a sec, but fyi, ANYTHING sounds possible from a paranormal standpoint.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

Ego death? That happened to me once and it wasn't fun, scary shit really. I had a similar feeling though over time you should feel more like yourself again, though I still admittedly don't feel 100 percent like I was before the experience.

Interesting.

What were the causes of your "death", exactly?


no cause really, I was just talking to my dad and died mid sentance. I was standing up and immediatly fell to the floor. I was dead for about 45 seconds. Natural causes I guess.

Well when something like that happens to you, whether or not it's subconsciously or consciously, you're a different person due to the experience. Think about every experience that you've had, have those not changed you in some sort of way? This "death" experience that you talk about is incredibly major, and judging from what you wrote, it was incredibly interesting. With the soul leaving the body and all. Perhaps when this occurred, you then had a different view on things.

I often pay good money to experience ego death through the usage of MDMA. How dare you act like what happened wasn't amazing!

Very interesting, I can't say I've ever seen anything like it before. Do you have the memories of someone else?
#13
You can feel your soul? I've never heard that one before.

My honest opinion (not being a dick here, just my absolute honest opinion) is that you're mentally ill. I think you fainted, not died, and you have quite an imagination. Combine that with the thump you took to the head, and there's your answer.
I know someone who wanged their head on the floor and lost their sense of smell. Perhaps it's like that.

it wasn't amazing, it was pretty screwed up.

not sure. I've never thought about that, but since my brief death, I don't remember much about my childhood.

no offense taken or anything. I'm pretty sure I'm mentally sane though. as far as feeling my soul, I never was able to until after I came back to life. as soon as it entered my body once more, I've been able to feel it ever since.

Perhaps you received a minor concussion and experienced a brain-trauma related personality change... that sometimes happens.

My grandmother died and felt the soul leave the body, and floated above her and watched her body being operated on. She came back to life shortly afterwards, and explained to the surgeon how she saw all of what he was doing.

As for your problem, It sounds very strange, I don't know how to help.
#24
wow, im a little freaked out here

what you described in you death experience comes pretty damn close to a salvia trip I had, I agree with analysis of ego death. I haven't heard of a personality shift such as yours being caused by an ego death expirience, but i'm sure its possible.
Im not to sure of the validity of comparing a near death expirience to a drug trip but.... im pretty freaked right now

yeah, my dad stood over me. He said I was cold and I didn't have a pulse. My mom was getting the phone to call 911 when I came back to.

For future reference, you could have just edited your original post..

I don't know if you call the state you were in "death". You may have been on the verge, but I don't think you were deceased; perhaps badly concussed.
Do you remember being the victim of any accidents, or executing strenuous activity the day it happened? Do/did you take drugs?

The only thing I did that day that I can remember was just jamming to Nirvana's 'Nevermind' through out the day because it was a new record for me at the time.

As far as drugs go, the only thing I used to do was chewing tabbacco. That's all. but I've been clean from that for a long time now.

I doubt nicotine did it.

Mhmmm strange.
Can you describe what you saw?


When I died, I fell to the floor. I had about 25 second of vision before everything went black for me, I remember seeing carpet fibres, my dad's feet, his hand, but not much else.

As far as the soul leaving my body, it left from my back and entered through my back. I never saw my soul and never looked out of my souls "eyes" but I could feel my souls emotions.

It took 45 minutes for your mom to pick up the phone and call 911? Granted you obviously don't personally remember, but still. That's a big friggen time gap.

I am intrigued and would love to believe your story, but at the moment I am skeptical.

I don't quite understand that part, how are you soul's emotions different from 'normal' emotions?

I'm not exactly sure, but i imagine we all have a special connection to our own souls because they are ours, but my soul felt abandoned and hopeless.

My thought is that the soul is the highest form of 'self' and consciousness, hence, I doubt you aren't 'you'. Assuming your soul left your body and another soul entered, I would think that 'you' would still be your original soul. So now you would either have successfully regained your body, or are still floating (or rather 'existing') as your soul (this seems unlikely due to your apparent complete reattachment to the physical realm) , or perhaps your body is being cohabited by two or more souls...

i believe in the existence in a soul, and I would call you lucky to have a such a strong relation and connection with it (if all you say is true), but the feelings attached to it are a bit discomforting. Do you have a resentment or disassociation with the idea of God or religion?
