I read an article a few days ago about the “Children of the Light” phenomenon. Very interesting piece!
It talks about people who were proclaimed clinically dead for several minutes. Then they resurrected from the “dead”. The term “Children of the Light” was coined because when these people recount their experiences all of them recall seeing a bright light that seemed to guide them.
I personally know a person that experienced such phenomenon. Let’s call him Alex. Alex had both asthma and allergy attack. When he got to the hospital, he was proclaimed DOA. He was declared clinically dead for 30 minutes by the doctors.
During the 30mins. that he was supposed to be dead, he saw himself walking inside a dark tunnel. There was a huge, bright light at the end. When he got near the light, he saw his long-time dead friend telling Alex to follow him. So Alex did. But before he could do so, a huge television screen appeared before him. He saw himself in the screen from the time he was little until old age. All the sins that he committed was played on the giant tv. Before the movie of his life ended, he fell down from a seemingly huge mountain. The next thing he knew he was back in his body and was gasping for air.
He was so thirsty that he drank a pitcher of water. Recovery was very speedy. He was out of the hospital in a few days. And to think that he was declared dead before that!
There did not seem to be any scientific explanation at all for this “Children of the Light” phenomena. But the number of people who came back after being proclaimed clinically dead is too large to be ignored.
Whatever this phenomenon is, it only serves to awaken whatever latent questions we have concerning the after-life. Maybe it offers us a glimpse of what the real after-life experience will be.
