dating site names for women - Dog dating experience

An Oklahoma school teacher says she’s seen heaven’s pearly gates and has lived to tell the tale.

Crystal Mc Vea’s near-death experience brought her face-to-face with a God that she spent a lifetime doubting. woman says the only reason she’s alive is so that she can tell others what she believes is waiting for them on the other side.

As many as 10 to 20 percent of people who go through cardiac arrest or clinical death have lucid memories of their brush with death, according to the Human Consciousness Project.

Survivors’ stories about these out-of-body experiences are curiously similar — there are bright lights, tunnels and nebulous beings.

But what matters to Mc Vea is how her glimpse of death has changed the way she’s living.

Mc Vea was being treated for pancreatitis in 2009 when an unexpected reaction to pain medication caused her to stop breathing.

She hasn’t been able to figure out exactly what happened to her body, but she knows that her heart stopped.

Her mother screamed for help and medical staff rushed to her side, shouting, “Code Blue.” Nurses pumped oxygen into her body and performed CPR to try to revive her.

During the nine minutes that she spent unconscious, Mc Vea says she was far away from the panic that descended on her hospital room.

All of the usual details were there — lights, a tunnel, pearly white gates and angels.

But what really stuck out was her experience of God — she said she could see, smell, taste, touch and hear him with more than the five senses she had on earth. “I didn’t see the human form of God, I didn’t see hands and feet and a face, I just saw the most beautiful light,” she told the New York Daily News.

“What I know now is that I experienced his presence.” Mc Vea said she used to think of God as a cruel and authoritative father figure. Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon who taught at Harvard, also spoke about a heightened experience of love during his near-death experience.
