Scientists are yet to conclusively determine whether life after death is real but there are many who claim to already know the answer. One such person is Bernard, who believes he caught a glimpse of the afterlife in a near-death experience (NDE) in 2011. According to Bernard, he felt a sharp pain in his chest that rendered him unconscious.
Before he woke up in hospital, Bernard claims to have experienced complete peace and love in a realm beyond Earth.
He shared his bizarre memories with the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF).
Bernard said: “Suddenly I was in something similar to space. It was dark all around me and I could not see my hands, feet, or any part of my body.
“It was like I was just a presence. Then, a beautiful and indescribable light appeared.”

In this realm, Bernard said he had no worries or fear.
He was then approached by two angelic beings that were made of pure light.
The supposed angels did not have wings but had a human form.
Bernard said: “They were just beings that were made of the light.
“The light and the angels were so bright that should have blinded me, but it did not hurt to look at them. Nor did I want to look away.

“It was the most beautiful, glorious sight I have ever seen.
“No words can accurately describe the beauty it held.
“One of the angels looked very similar to my grandmother who passed away but with a younger and more vibrant appearance. “
Bernard then ran towards the angel but he was suddenly brought back to Earth.

He said: “Being back in my body felt painful, disgusting and awkward. I just wanted to go back to where I was before.”
Although the account is bizarre, it is not unique to Bernard.
According to Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, NDE patients often recall similar sights and sounds.
He told an Oz Talk: “People describe a sensation of a bright, warm, welcoming light that draws people towards it.
“They describe a sensation of experiencing their deceased relatives, almost as if they have come to welcome them.
“They often say that they didn’t want to come back in many cases, it is so comfortable and it is like a magnet that draws them that they don’t want to come back.
“A lot of people describe a sensation of separating from themselves and watching doctors and nurses working on them.”
According to the NHS, NDEs do not count as genuine instances of death.
The NHS said in 2014: “The existence of an ‘afterlife’ remains a matter of belief, not scientific proof.”
