You can't understand why someone would prefer to exist rather than not exist?
anyway...this is what happens:
-A sense/awareness of being dead.
-A sense of peace, well-being and painlessness. Positive emotions. A sense of removal from the world.
-An out-of-body experience. A perception of one's body from an outside position. Sometimes observing doctors and nurses performing medical resuscitation efforts.
-A "tunnel experience". A sense of moving up, or through, a passageway or staircase.
-A rapid movement toward and/or sudden immersion in a powerful light. Communication with the light.
-An intense feeling of unconditional love.
-Encountering "Beings of Light", "Beings dressed in white", or similar. Also, the possibility of being reunited with deceased loved ones.
-Receiving a life review.
-Receiving a "life preview" in the cases of George Ritchie and Betty Eadie, which Ring calls an NDE "Flash Forward".
-Receiving knowledge about one's life and the nature of the universe.
-A decision by oneself or others to return to one's body, often accompanied by a reluctance to return.
-Approaching a border.
-The notice of unpleasant sound or noise (claimed by R. Moody).
-Connection to the cultural beliefs held by the individual, which seem to dictate the phenomena experienced in the NDE and the later interpretation thereof (Holden, Janice Miner. Handbook of Near-Death Experiences. Library of Congress Cataloging in Publishing Data, 2009.).
-Hearing music. According to a study conducted by Dr. Joel Funk, Psychology professor at Plymouth State College in New Hampshire, close to fifty percent of people who have had a NDE remember hearing music.
-Telepathic conversations with beings of light or angels, deceased relatives and pets, or religious figures such as Jesus Christ for example in pleasant near death experiences (NDE's), or with demons or fallen angels in distressing Nde's.
