Things That Might Happen To You As You Die

Fact checked

Have you ever wondered what happens when you die? Not even after death, but what actually happens as you are dying – as in, the experience of death itself.

BoredBug has created a pretty incredible list of what it says are the most common themes in death experiences.

BoredBug reports: These 9 Things That Happen To You When You’re Dying !

#1 You Can See Your Body


Many people have this “out of body experience” and see their lifeless body beneath them when they are technically dead. That means they are an incorporeal spirit floating above their body. They can see everything that is going on in the room and who is in it. Any attempt to restore connectivity between the consciousness and physical body fails, leaving the person frantic for several moments.

#2 The Light


The vast majority of people who have died reported seeing the famous “light at the end of the tunnel.” It is the most common occurrence that people have when they are technically dead.

#3 Guardian Angels


Numerous people claimed to see at least one angel or spirit looking over them and seemingly taking care of them during their brief pit stop in death’s grasp. Some say they are aided by the spirit through the afterlife before they are sent back into their body.

#4 You Are Visited By Your Mother

Many people say they were visited by their mother through visions while they are on their deathbed and/or dead.

#5 Seeing Dead Relatives


If you have a large family, get ready to see them again in the afterlife. Many people who have died and come back to life say that they saw their relatives while stopping off in the afterlife. Apparently some of them are even greeted by what appears to be a large party thrown by their dead relatives.

#6 Life Flash


Get ready to relive your best and worst moments. Many people see their lives flash before their eyes in near death or even post death experiences. They’ll see their accomplishments and their memories play out before their eyes, like a slideshow of their life.

#7 You Can See Everyone And Hear Them


A lot of people recount their ability to see the people in the room with them and attempt to interact with them but they can’t because their body is lifeless and their spirit/consciousness remains awake. Every attempt to get the people around them to acknowledge them is futile.

#8 Peace

By a very large majority, the deceased that have returned to the living have said they felt an overwhelming sense of peace and calm. It is so powerful and loving that the soul/consciousness doesn’t know how to comprehend such a calming sense.

#9 You Don’t Want To Return

According to numerous reports, the experience of death is so peaceful and calming that many people who experience it do not wish to return to waking life. Imagine feeling something so good that you don’t want to return to the life you have been fighting to so hard to retain.

During this life, we may never truly know what happens once we pass away. Perhaps there will be a bright light and many loved ones… or maybe we will just feel happy, loved and warm. But one thing is certain… if a person passed away and felt like they were in heaven, only to be expelled and brought back? Well, that would feel like hell.
