Is a Near Death Experience a type of OOBE?

Are OOBE and NDE the Same?

Although we tend to separate out-of-body-experiences (OOBE) from near-death-experiences(NDE), they do have some similarities. The most obvious is that the person who has gone through an NDE almost always, at some time in the experience, views their physical body from a remote location.

In classical cases of NDEs during emergency medical procedures, the remote location may be no further away than the ceiling of the OP, but the distance is tangible. In an NDE, people report hearing conversations of people who are in the proximity of the body and they are able to remember them word-for-word when they “return”.

In an OOBE, people also report hearing conversations of people they are observing from their remote location and finding later that the conversation took place just as they “heard” it while out of their bodies.

We‘ve run across a fascinating description of an NDE in this video and hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did.

Have you had either an OOBE or an NDE? Want to share your experiences with us and our readers? We look forward to it.
