Nope, there are many people who have negative experiences. Do a search for Howard Storm on YouTube. There are many others who experience evil spirits in NDEs.
Evidence supports the idea that out-of-body experiences depend on the temporal parietal junction. The temporal parietal junction of the brain seems to be involved in spatial self-perception and, thus, may be a candidate for understanding these phenomena... Visions and visitations seem to be associated with the temporal lobe. The temporal and parietal lobes of the cortex are involved in visual and face processing, as well as emotional events. Oxygen deprivation is likely to interfere with activity in neural structures, and the temporal and parietal lobes seem particularly susceptible to oxygen deprivation.
Still, the convincing thing to me is when there’s a conveyance of information. Elena Durham, author of I Stand All Amazed, had her experience in the 70s. She was told things that she didn’t know then but was confirmed in the 90s. She’s one of the ones who saw friends she said she knew before she was born, and whom she recognized immediately. They greeted each other and embraced like old friends. She also asked questions and received intelligent answers about why God allows wars and evil (because he cannot and will not interfere with the free agency of man). When she came to, she contacted the priest who had given her last rites in the emergency room, and he couldn’t quite get his head around how she returned from death. He kept telling her, “But you were dead! They had taped your ring and earrings and had sent you to the morgue. You had been flat lining!” But she not only described the events that had happened in the emergency room, but was able to repeat the conversations of the doctors in a room she had never been in. Alas, like many such stories, she spends too much time describing the health problems that landed her in the emergency room and no one cares. They just want to hear the death and dying part. Apparently there’s no pain whatsoever in leaving your body. She described it as a very slight “pop” and then you were out looking down at your body and everything else that is going on. When the light appeared, she felt a great desire to approach it and that was when she made the transition to Paradise and began recognizing people. She described the beauty of the spirit realm, the colors, the fact that angels 1) don’t have wings and 2) are nothing more than people who not yet had been born or people who, having passed through life were either resurrected or awaiting resurrection. That made sense to me in that I’ve always wondered why angels were human in appearance.
She also saw that there were many people on Earth who had passed on, but didn’t want to pass into the light. Some didn’t want to leave the places they had become familiar with in life and others who feared judgment. This is consistent with many other near death experiences, such as that of Howard Storm, an atheist who died in a hospital and was overpowered by evil spirits. Only when he called on Jesus Christ was he delivered. Apparently many of the spirits of the wicked dead join forces with Lucifer and his angels. These are most likely the spirits one sees manifesting themselves in various paranormal shows.
If people see light and there’s no intelligence conveyed, I tend to chalk it up to medicine. But we’ve all had dreams and know the woozy indistinct things that happen in dreams. Afterwards we know we did things in our dreams, but we don’t recall them like we recall reality. When people go out of country and meet with people for business, they return home with detailed memories. They can describe the sights they saw, the colors, the weather, and the conversations they had. When people with near death experiences can do the same thing, that’s more than just an oxygen-deprived dream.
I talked to an elderly nurse at a hospital one time while undergoing a sleep study. She told me of numerous stories she’d heard over the years, and added that most ER personnel can tell such stories. One involved a guy who was doing some wiring in his bathroom. He thought the electricity had been turned off, but he’d hit the wrong circuit breaker. Suddenly he was thrown back into his empty bathtub. He had no sensation of leaving his body but he found himself looking down and seeing it just as his wife and son rushed in. He saw them trying to revive him and noticed the burn marks running up his arms. He felt totally at peace, and then, he said, he heard voices he hadn’t heard for years—his parents. He didn’t see them, but they told him he had to go back, that his work on Earth was not complete; but he didn’t immediately go back. He heard his son and wife talking, heard them call 911. Then, poof! He was back. Although leaving his body had been painless, going back was anything but—and this is quite normal in NDEs. Suddenly he hurt everywhere. His arms felt like they were on fire. Later, in the hospital, he was able to recite his wife’s conversation with his son, as well as describe what they were wearing. Was it oxygen deprivation interfering with activity in neural structures in his temporal lobes? Who knows? But why are so many people able to describe conversations doctors are having even as they’re flat lining? And why can they describe what the doctors are wearing, or what doctors or nurses are doing in different rooms at the time?
One thing I know, and that’s that we mortals have immortal spirits that not only survive death, but may have existed before we came to this earth. These things Jehovah’s Witnesses can’t answer.
