Death, near-death experiences, are some of the most intriguing topics that inspire curiosity among people.
Do we have a life after death, or do we just vanish from the face of the earth?
Clinical death is a medical term used when all of your vital organs stop to function, your heart stops beating in a regular rhythm, you lose consciousness and there is no brain activity from 20 to 40 seconds.
The most interesting thing about clinical death is that people who experienced it and later came back, all share almost identical stories.
After a post on Reddit from a person who official died twice, many people started to share their stories and these were their most common experiences.
Is it peaceful?
The person who died twice described the experience as peaceful.
“I was getting an angiogram done, wide awake watching the screen and talking to the doctor. Alarms started to go off and everyone became panicked. My world became soft and foggy and everything faded to black. Next thing I remember was opening my eyes and hearing a Dr say “we got him back”. It was really a peaceful feeling more than anything.”

A sense of being out of the body?
From the several experiences that I read one of the most commons senses is being out of your body. Here is a paragraph from a person who experienced it.
“I do remember a little bit of the ambulance ride, but not from my own body. It was seriously the strangest thing I have ever experienced.
It could have been a dream, but I saw my own unconscious body, completely flatlined, in the ambulance. I remember the EMT who was in the ambulance with me (whom I did not see before I passed out) had mint green hair and I couldn’t remember his name, but I asked for him when I regained consciousness about three days later.”
“My father suffered a severe stroke in his mid-twenties and flatlined/died for a short period.
Although it’s mostly used in movies where actors get into a near-death experience, it’s also a common thing amongst people who came back after a clinical death.
“I see a vivid “flashback” of myself in the ambulance being taken to the hospital and I am stood in the ambulance looking down on myself / others in the ambulance.”
There was fog all around me
“I was standing somewhere. There was a fog all around me, and I saw my best friend (who at the time I’d been fighting with and he’d stopped talking to me) come out of the mist.
He told me that I couldn’t go yet, that I have to keep trying, and if I promised not to give up, he’d see me back on Earth. I wordlessly agreed, and I was instantly pushed (into?) my body.”
