NDE Stories

  • NDE Accounts   ( 290 Articles )

    These NDE accounts were submitted to our website and are published here anonymously. Minor edits have been made to protect the identity of the experiencer and others who may have been involved with the experience. Archives of the early NDE accounts, from 2002 through 2004, from our earlier Message Board are in the last 18 items in the list.

  • NDE-Like Accounts   ( 78 Articles )
    These near-death-like experience accounts were submitted to our website and are published here anonymously. Minor edits have been made to protect the identity of the experiencer and others who may have been involved with the experience.

    More previously posted accounts can be found in our NDE Account Archives submitted in 2002-2005 (at the bottom of the list).

  • Third Person Narratives   ( 9 Articles )

    In this area, you can find NDE accounts told by someone other than the experiencer. Like the other accounts, these have been lightly edited to remove direct references to actual names and places.

  • Video/Audio Accounts   ( 21 Articles )

    Welcome to the new NDE video and audio section, featuring individuals describing their near-death experience. Some of these NDE accounts were recorded at various IANDS sponsored events; others are from the news media. A few derive from other sources.

    All of these links are to video or audio files that are in the public domain on the Internet. Most reside on youtube.com, the largest repository of non-commercial video on the internet, and we link to them. (With each segment, youtube.com will post thumbnail links to other videos. The quality of those — and sometimes the content — will vary. We are unable to screen their links, as they frequently change.) A high-speed Internet connection is highly recommended to view these NDE accounts.
