"What are the similarities of afterlife recollection between people reporting on their out-of-body experiences as a result of a temporary physical trauma and a subject in hypnosis recalling death in a past life? Both find themselves floating around their bodies in a strange way, trying to touch solid objects which dematerialize in front of them. Both kinds of reporters say they are frustrated in their attempts to talk to living people who don't respond. Both state they feel a pulling sensation away from the place where they died and experience relaxation and curiosity rather than fear.

All these people report a euphoric sense of freedom and brightness around them.
Some of my subjects see brilliant whiteness totally surrounding them at the moment of death, while others observe the brightness is farther away from an area of darker space through which they are being pulled. This is often referred to as the tunnel effect, and has become well known with the public."

Part of a full-death hypnotic regression session:

Dr. N: What does the process of moving out of your body actually feel like to you?

S: It's like shedding my skin, like peeling a banana. I just lose my body in one swoosh!

Dr. N: Is the feeling unpleasant?

S: Oh no! It's wonderful to feel so free with no more pain, but... I am... disoriented... I didn't expect to die...

Dr. N: I understand. You are feeling a little displacement at the moment as a soul. This is normal in your situation for what you have just gone through. Listen and respond to my questions. You said you were floating. Are you able to move around freely right after death?

S: It's strange... it's as if I'm suspended in air that isn't air... there are no limits... no gravity... I'm weightless.

Dr. N: You mean it's sort of like being in a vacuum for you?

S: Yes... nothing around me is a solid mass. There are no obstacles to bump into... I'm drifting.

Dr. N: Can you control your movements, where you are going?

S: Yes... I can do some of that... but there is... a pulling... into a bright whiteness... it's so bright!

Dr. N: Is the intensity of whiteness the same everywhere?

S: Brighter... away from me... it's a little darker white... gray... in the direction of my body... (starts to cry) oh, my poor body... I'm not ready to leave yet. (subject pulls back in his chair as if he is resisting something).

Dr. N: It's all right, I'm with you. I want you to relax and tell me if the force that took you out of your head at the moment of death is still pulling you away, and if you can stop it.

S: (pause) When I was free of my body, the pulling lessened. Now, I feel a nudge... drawing me away from my body... I don't want to go yet... but, something wants me to go soon...

Dr. N: I understand, but I suspect you are learning you have some element of...

S: (pause) They are near... soon I will see them... I feel their love as I want Will to feel mine... they are waiting until I'm ready.
