10 Year Old Sees Future During Near Death Experience

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


In the summer prior to entering in the 5th grade I fell from our back yard tree. It had been infected with the spruce budworm disease and the limb that I was swinging from let go and I fell approximately 15 feet. I broke both arms and my left arm severely. I also impacted mud into my nose and throat. The lawn and bare ground around the tree was wet from rain from the prior night. Initially as the branch snapped, and I started to fall, I was surprised to be caught mid air by a bright glowing being, which carried me upwards. Upon reaching a glowing bight landscape I was released and I became quite euphoric and joyous. I immediately recalled jewels floating everywhere and as I moved my hand around them I came to the awareness that I was flying/floating above our house. I had a wide angle view and began looking at the lighthouse from rooftop and remember laughing at what my mom would say if she saw me on the top of our three story home. I remember looking into the second story window of my parents bedroom, and at this point started to hear someone calling my name. But this voice was saying Donald, not Donnie, which ever one used including my parents. I ignored the voice until a very stern woman voice said it again. At this point I turned and saw a tall square jawed heavy slightly overweight woman in a yellow flower pattern sun dress. I asked her who she was and she said “I’m your grandmother.” None of this was spoken in human language because I never saw her lips move. And when I said “No you’re not!, I know what my Gram looks like and its not you!” At this point I had only my paternal grandmother living and that was the grandmother I was talking about. She then said “All mothers have a mother and that mother has a mother, and I am one of those.” As she said this in my mind I saw little pictures going back each generation and a noticed her image there two or three generations back. I reached out and took her hand and she smiled. I as we walked I asked her where we were and was somewhat surprised with her reply of “heaven”. In a peculiar way I seemed to doubt her and I said “If I’m in Heaven, then I want to see Jesus.” I was even more surprised when she said, OK.
   As we moved on I realized the area around us had changed and I was aware of a glowing building, for lack of better words, and as we moved I was aware that I thought it must be a library because people were reading and learning. At one room I was surprised to see an Indian, and as I thought that, a very annoyed reply came from the elaborately painted and feathered individual. “I am not an Indian I am a…..!” I have often thought of what he must of said and remember how he was dressed and think he was one of the South American Native tribes on the line of the Mayans, but remember only being bewildered and replying. “Look like an Indian to me?”
    A little ways later after seeing other beings reading and learning my gram stopped and said wait here. She would let Jesus know I was here. I remember that I thought I was outside the schools principal office and oddly I seemed to slightly hear the conversation in this “office” as him on the telephone. After the short wait I seemed to hear the phone receiver set down, just prior to him saying “Yes, Ok, right. good bye.” Then I got very nervous as I saw movement, a bright glow moving to the opening.
    I would have to say that at this point that I was awestruck! At this point the Light was too much and I humbly lowered my head. I never got a clear view of this being my mom had talked so much about. This would be the part that bothered me the most when I started to relive it later on.
    My gram at this moment said what I thought was “Yes you are a man, this is Donald.” I was confused as to why she didn’t just say “Jesus, this is Donald.”, but was too busy trying to understand why he was so bright. I even tried to took through my slightly opened fingers to get a glimpse. While I struggled to see, I remember him saying very little to my gram but all of a sudden I was aware he was searching or maybe viewing my childhood up till that point and remember him stopping at a memory of mine that I was ashamed of. I saw the event, the theft of a toy rubber knife from a Main Street department store, from a different angle. I saw me from a distance, running out the loading dock door and home. All from a distance and detached. He paused slightly to see my reaction, and with no judgment whizzed through the rest. After this my gram and him talked and she turned to me and said, “You have to go back.” I think I even surprised myself when I said no, I wanted to stay here.” At this point that gram said that would make my family very sad because they love me very much. I said no they don’t and was told to look, and as I looked down through what I thought was a television I could see my sister and my brothers trying to revive me. My older sister was digging the mud out of my throat and nose. And I was surprised. I could hear her saying “Donnie breath, Donnie breath, please, as she slapped my face. Then my gram bent down and while on one knee turned me around and looked me strait in the face. With her hands on my shoulders she said the words that would haunt me…”Donald you’ve got to o back, but remember…remember You Are Part of Something Very Important!” And as I turned to look again at what was happening with my body, and confused as to what my gram meant and before I could inquire I felt a huge push from behind and fell headlong into the limp body and started gasping and gulping air. The pain was awful.
    I started to relate what had happened but no one believed a word. Over time even I forgot. Sounds impossible, but when all your family tells you your mistaken
even you start to believe it. So back into the back of my mind it went. I was married for 8 years and having the last of our for children born, when this all started coming back to me. In dreams, hearing certain things, and then my brother tells me the Hebrew name for Jesus was Yeshua, Boom! What a lot of memories then!
    I didn’t get to tell my mother the whole story until she was in the hospital and had only two weeks to live. She made me promise to tell my siblings all 7 of them. When I finally told my wife she said “Honey, I can see why you never told anyone, you we’re afraid no one would believe you.” I laughed out loud, and was surprised to hear myself say ” No Dear, I didn’t tell anyone because I didn’t believe it!” Because after years of being an atheist it didn’t have a place.
I like to end by saying that I’ve tried over the last 5 years to tell people this event and even now when I get to the point where Yeshua comes out to greet me I get that same Rush of emotions. And it gets me crying and embarrassed. I think that why when they asked me if I knew my mother and family loved me I said no, not like this! It seems that love in the physical is nothing compared to real love. 
At the time of your experience was there an associated life-threatening event?   Yes  
Was the experience difficult to express in words?….Yes….Because so much of the communication and interaction was emotion based. To tell someone, “Then Yeshua, in extreme brilliance, entered and stood in front of me.”, pales in content to the magnitude of feeling that came with that light. Light that lives and moves, that senses and expresses.  Most times at the start of sharing that moment I would seize up and stop and end right there. And I still have trouble with that moment. The Bible called him the light of the world, and that is a gross understatement. Exactly my point.
At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?….More consciousness and alertness than normal    While in the presence of Yeshua…..At one point I knew that even the walls loved me. That the plants the ground and “air” was there for me. I remember flying and realizing how easy and effortless it was. All I needed to do was put my attention to a spot and glide. My mother nailed my window shut because on more than one occasion I was going to show her how easy it is. Communication seemed effortless almost telepathic in many ways. Richer.
Please compare your vision during the experience to your everyday vision that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.    Vision seemed to be like trough a wide angel lens. At one point while watching everyone rushing to my aid, I was also aware of a gentleman looking into the engine of a car across the lawn next door, whom also ran over to me. A good 100 yards away.
Please compare your hearing during the experience to your everyday hearing that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.    I had no recall of hearing other worldly sounds, but was not hampered in communication.
Did you see or hear any earthly events that were occurring during a time that your consciousness / awareness was apart from your physical / earthly body?    Yes   As listed above I was instructed to view my siblings around my body as evidence the they did love me or they would not be trying to remove material from my airways.
What emotions did you feel during the experience?….Intense love.
euphoria after leaving my body.  
Did you pass into or through a tunnel?….Uncertain….There was a short “movement” initially on while being carried up by a bright entity. Later I would have this in a dream with future event knowledge included.
Did you see an unearthly light?….Yes….Seemed to permeate the walls and then Yeshua, as mentioned above, was the epitome of unearthly light.
Did you seem to encounter a mystical being or presence, or hear an unidentifiable voice?….I encountered a definite being, or a voice clearly of mystical or unearthly origin    See my story above. Encountered several unearthly beings in the “library”, initially upon falling was carried up by one and the contact with The Light Of The World.
Did you encounter or become aware of any deceased (or alive) beings?….Yes    I recently was given photographs after my mother died in 2009 and in the group was a photo of my maternal grandfather’s maternal grandmother she died in about 1913. This looks like the grandmother that took care of me during my out of body NDE.
Did you become aware of past events in your life during your experience?….Yes….Most came whizzing by but the “theft” event was slowed to view.
Did you seem to enter some other, unearthly world?….A clearly mystical or unearthly realm….Heaven I was told, but I’m sure that was for a 10 year olds “ears”.
Did time seem to speed up or slow down?….Everything seemed to be happening at once; or time stopped or lost all meaning….At times I viewed my siblings frozen in place, other times it was as if they were moving slow other times I seemed to not have any reference.
Did you suddenly seem to understand everything?….No….
Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?….No….
Did you come to a border or point of no return?….I came to a barrier that I was not permitted to cross; or was “sent back” against my will….I was told that I had no choice but to return. That was against my apparent wishes.
Did scenes from the future come to you?….Scenes from the world’s future….later on after this event started returning to my memory addition information not initially available to me started coming, which included floods that have a cured and the death of a neighbor’s father.
Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge or purpose?….Uncertain….Was confused when told I was part f something very important but what exactly was not told to me.
Discuss any changes that might have occurred in your life after your experience:….Large changes in my life….Most of my adult live I lived as an atheist and loved to dig at the Bible and quote the less than uplifting passages, and Jesus was my favorite punching bag. Even when memories of the NDE started coming back I would push it away ignore it. It wasn’t real. Couldn’t be. But over and over that immense Love kept showing itself. Shook me up. With that I found out I was just wrong about my view of life after death and I needed to admit it…..
Did you have any changes in your values or beliefs after the experience that occurred as a result of the experience?    Yes     My wife says she has been married to two different men both the same guy. She married a militant atheist and now is married to someone who quotes Jesus with much fondness.
Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience?….Uncertain     Have had some very realistic dreams. Future events in some cases.
Have you ever shared this experience with others?   Yes   Initially I shared openly, but buried it in my subconscious
like a dream, because my older siblings thought It was just nonsense, so that’s what it became. My younger brothers have no memory of me ever mentioning it, until my mother started getting ill and her health declining.
Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience?….No    
What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:….Experience was probably real    It seems like I must of thought it real at the time, but shortly after it became apparent that no one wanted to hear and so life just took off and we went our merry way not believing in much of anything non physical.
What do you believe about the reality of your experience at the current time:….Experience was definitely real….Hard to put in words. Again its the immense feelings that drove the experience home, if you will. Without those feelings there would be very little and to say I stood in front of Yeshua and we viewed my life up to that point says very little, because so much was conveyed without conversation. I’m fortunate in that I know what ultimate Love for someone is. I felt it, I experienced It! I know what it is. And he and I shared it. And for that I’m thankful.
Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?….Yes….Much more compassionate than before.
Have your religious beliefs/spiritual practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?….Yes    Never is my spiritual focus too far away from whatever is going on. Or what appears to be going on.
At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience?….No   
Did the questions asked and information that you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?    Yes   

Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you?     As stated above, the whole encounter with Yeshua, and the final words on departure from my grandmother…

      Spiritualism – State of the Dead

      The Sacred Name Hoax

      Don’t say I never warned you…

    • DRAUGR

      I was so pleased to read this. Many of the experiences shared by this person are exactly like the experience I had after a motorcycle accident when I was 29 years old. Many of what this person experienced differs from my experience but many others are almost identical. When you get right down to it, what is most important is that you do exist, you still live after your body dies but in a different way. Like the person in this article say’s several times, “the experience, or many aspects of such, are not able to be put into words that can accurately convey to others your feelings while in the state described. It is not for a lack of words or a way to arrange them but more to do with the words needed to accurately describe the experience do not exist. They cannot exist. And even if they did their comprehension would be impossible for others. Beautiful, loving, euphoric, belonging, brightness are words that just barely scratch the surface. So moving an experience it is, that even to this day, some 24 years later, I still have difficulty not breaking down into tears when attempting to tell someone else of my experience. And for all of those that want to say that it was all one big hallucination, well, you’ll find out soon enough just how wrong you are. During my NDE nothing has ever been more real. You can feel it as it encompasses you completely. You know instinctively that this is where you belong. This is reality and the way it should be. Everything before suddenly has no meaning. For those that do not believe, I would imagine that when your time comes you will be filled with twice as much joy. It is a shame that for now, while inhabiting your body, you do not have anything to comfort you. Living is hard and dying is the hardest part of living. For some of us it is quick and peaceful. For others it is a painfully long and drawn out process. In either case, having that little comfort of knowing that soon you will be experiencing an existence so much more fulfilling than life in your body will comfort you through life and in your final moments. Comments left like the one from “inyour4head” make me laugh. Boy does he have a big surprise coming.

        “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” Revelation 16:14

        “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” 2 Thessalonians 2:8-10

        Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed reading your NDE.

        I had an experience, where I came into the presence of the Light. I knew immediately it was the Lord.

        The love coming forth from Him is like you described, when you indicated, there are no words to really explain it. The words do not exist. And if they did exist comprehension would be impossible for others, who have not had the experience. The love is like nothing that exist on earth it is so mighty, comprehensive, all encompassing. Absolutely like nothing the world has ever known or seen in the bodies we live in at this time. The love is so mighty it is almost beyond belief in this life, and I doubt I would believe what I just said if I hadn’t experienced it for myself.

        My experience was when I was 28 years old. That was 31 years ago.

        It changed my life. I have never been afraid to die since.

        I am very grateful for the experience.

        My experience was not a NDE. It was more like I was taken out of my body, into a different place. I did go through a tunnel, and came out of the tunnel into the presence of the Light. A voice came out of the Light, but it was like it communicated telepathically. It spoke to me, and I spoke back. But, I did not move my lips. The Light knew what I saying because it knew my thoughts. I was not scared of the Light at all, but felt very comfortable in His presence, and did not want to leave His presence. I’ve never felt such love in all my life before or since as I did that day in the presence of the Light.

        The landscape and flowers in Heaven are beautiful. They are similar to what is on earth, maybe many even the same. But, they are in their perfect form. The dirt in Paradise, in the garden I saw was perfectly tilled, with no weeds, and the moisture in the ground around the plants is perfect.

        Then, in other parts of Heaven, the grass has these little flowers growing in with the grass. The little flowers are all different colors. The flowers in the grass as well as the grass are all perfectly manicured, at the same length. When you walk across this grass, it’s like it springs back to its perfect condition unharmed by footsteps. It is beautiful!

        Thanks again for sharing your NDE. By me, it was much appreciated! :)


      What are you trying to say dude?

      There is no doubt in my mind that the person in the article speaks THE TRUTH.

      I don’t care if people think I’m crazy, but I’ve also experienced the love/bliss/euphoria that is talked about, except that I wasn’t having an NDE. I was fully awake, aware, fully conscious and sober. No mistaking it as a dream or hallucination, as it happened over 20 years ago, at about age 17 – while completely awake in my bedroom one night.

      I was visited and healed – by a being of incredibly intense pure bright white light. It was such an incredibly bright light – there are just no words to describe it, yet there it was – in the corner of my room – lighting up my pitch dark bedroom! I remember lying there in complete astonishment, wondering how I could possibly look upon such a blinding white light without it hurting my eyes or even having to squint

      At the time, I was sobbing inconsolably over losing my first love. Her father was in the armed forces, and she and I were ripped apart when he was given his marching orders to move across the country to another base. What made matters worse was that we found out after the move across country – that she was pregnant. We were both minors, and there wasn’t a thing I could do. So, I was in complete despair and agony over her move, and the sad decision to have the pregnancy terminated. She was the love of my life – and we were just ripped apart.

      So, there I was – just crying my eyes out uncontrollably – experiencing such tremendous heart break, I was utterly devastated. That’s when “it” happened. The light, and then the healing. A wave of pure bliss and love went through my entire body from head to toe. Every cell of my body was tingling and in a state of euphoria, and suddenly my tears of extremely profound sorrow were transformed into tears of pure joy and utter ecstasy. I couldn’t believe what was happening, yet there was no mistake, I was being healed. There was no communication (at least none that I am aware of). The whole thing seemed to have taken place in under a minute. Needless to say, I am a believer. True story.

      Why do you have the need to hate and criticise others. That belief in Jesus to love all others and to forgive shows its authenticity. Do you attack others in your purposed of them, weak spot. Does this some how give you strength or fill that void in you which is empty. Love others, and give them the platform to say what they will. Even think on what they say. It wasn’t so long ago the majority believed above all else the earth was flat. As well, right now there are 42 Senators who want to give Congress the power to repeal the 1st ammendment of the constitution, the right to free speech. Which means you will be silenced as well. Defend and encourage everyones speech, and love the Creator who truly intended for us to be free

      • inyour4head

        Preaching what the Bible says about homosexuality is considered hate speech. Preaching what the Bible says about abortion is considered hate speech. Preaching what the Bible says about the state of the dead is considered hate speech, etc, etc, etc…

        Words of Jesus:

        “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.” Matthew 10:34

        “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.” Matthew 5:11


        Have you ever wondered what the real purpose of repealing the 1st amendment was?

      Jesus talking in his office on the telephone? Things never change, I guess. Was it a cell phone? Verizon? Sprint?

      TOTAL BS!

      This guy claims he had his NDE at 10 years old, yet on page 2 he says ‘my wife has been married to two men in one man, one a militant atheist another who loves to quote Jesus’.
      How did this happen, as I know you weren’t married at 10 years old or earlier. In other words, this ‘I changed’ BS is just that, BS. If you accepted Jesus at 10, then how did she suddenly know two men in one, an atheist and a believer? BECAUSE YOU ARE LYING!

      Oh, and nice teaser with that ’10 year old sees future during NDE’ headline, only to say ‘yeah, I saw a few things, floods that have happened’, and yet NOTHING of value other than a stupid made-up blog entry. That’s all this story is!

        lol did you actually read the article ?
        he was recounting what had happened to him as a young boy !
        I understand why you are confused.. the header may have led you to believe the story was
        being conveyed by a 10 year old ! it is not.. it is a recollection by a man of what happened
        to him when he was a boy of 10 years old.. have faith my friend and don’t be so angry !
        it’s a story pf a boy who had a near death experience only to suppress that experience and living
        most of his life denying what happened to him only to recall it later in life and finding God
        in his life once again ! I’ll tell you what i see in you is someone looking for answers in your
        own life ! or you would be so angry not finding the answers in this story ! keep looking
        my friend ! never give up looking.. have faith in him and he will answer your prayers !

      Let the Bible answer this: show one scripture that states the reward of the saved is heaven.

      There are no scriptures that state anything close to the following:

      When we get to heaven.

      I will see you in heaven.

      When the Lord calls us home IN heaven.

      We will receive our reward IN heaven.

      Christ only came from heaven – went back to heaven and will come from heaven to earth the 2nd time.

      Christ is coming back to earth the 2nd time to FIX the problems here on earth, His Saints will be immortal Spirit kings and priest to assist Him in returning earth again to the garden of Eden. Human men will live in peace, they will obey all of the Commandments, Statues and Judgments of God.

      Satan is the god of this world, and he can confuse man in many ways and he does.

        2 Corinthians 5:1

        For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

        2 Corinthians 5:2

        For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

        2 Corinthians 5:3

        If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

        2 Corinthians 5:4

        For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

        2 Corinthians 5:5

        Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

        2 Corinthians 5:6

        Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord:

        2 Corinthians 5:7

        For we walk by faith, not by sight:

        2 Corinthians 5:8

        We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

        2 Corinthians 5:9

        Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.

      • eatmorevegetables

        Mathew 5:3 & 10 describe the saved inheriting the kingdom of heaven, which you might argue is the new Eden on earth, but that makes no sense because verse 5 describes the meek inheriting the earth as a different reward. Verse 12 specifically mentions the “reward is great IN heaven”, which is what you claimed does not exist in scripture.

        There are also numerous examples in scripture referring to the Father being in heaven, which should not be ignored when reading John 14:2-3 “In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.”
