Heaven and Hell Near Death Experience

An intriguing thought is the different experiences that people have had during a near death experience where one person encounters heaven and the other sees a glimpse of hell. Religion and theology tells us of the existence of heaven, limbo, purgatory, and hell that a person could expect based on how you live your life. What is a very interesting point about some well known near death reports is how the actual experience of near death turned the persons life around from that of a Godless one to a life knowing that God loves them.

How do you explain in a logical manner how someone can go from being an atheist one day, has an accident or incident where that person has a near death experience, and from that day on believes in God or a higher power? Something very intense, emotional, and life changing happened to that person that was by all accounts clinically dead.

Can the experience of what some call heaven or hell during a near death experience change a persons life?

I really agree with your post about the sheer magintude of a NDE, and the subsequent effects it can have on your life. I was an atheist for my entire life until the day I overdosed on drugs and experienced my own death, and the disintegration of my ego. Whilst I chose Buddhism as a way of pursuing my new found spiritual side, I think that any of the major religions are able to bring us closer to the divine and to help us understand our true nature. May all human beings come to this all important realisaton.
