Resolved Question

What happens at the exact moment of death. How does it feel to die?

Those of you who have been with dear ones who were dying. What were their final moments like? What happens when you stop breathing? Does it feel like you're suffocating or drowning? Was there a struggle for breath, for life, or did they go calmly, peacfully, simply blowing out their last breath naturally? On a cold, wet night like tonight I think about death and how it would not be very nice to lie buried in the cold, wet earth... it must be so much better to be buried in summertime when it is warm at least. 69 mths ago

Dear Ella-Belle, it certainly isn't pleasant for you and I to consider being buried in the cold earth. But someone who has passed on is beyond any earthly unpleasantness. They have finished using this borrowed shell we call a body, so it no longer encumbers them.

I have spoken with a few people who have had near death experiences. The same senario seems to happen to all of them. It just becomes very quiet and dark and then a light seems to pull them (sideways and not up) One child said he was pulled through a noodle!? Thy all felt safe and good! God did promise us eternal life and I believe he would not lie - so it sounds good to me!

I was sitting next to mu mothers bed when she died , i had my hand on the pulse on her ankle , she was very peacefull ,it took her about 2 hours to die .she was at peace with the world , she had a smile on her face , I realy believe that God was talking to her at that stage ,she had no pain her breathing became shalower and shalower until it stopped and could feel her pulse no more.what a fantastic way to die , with your loved ones all around you .I do think that any person who dies no matter what the circumstances unless its violent dies peacefull.

i'm a nurse and seen a lot of people die, nothing make it easier, for anyone mostly for the love ones, the person that die, is mostly peacefull and happy and not with a struggle, just stop breathing sometimes, i think if they know there is some one to hold their hand they ok , nobody must die alone, no graveyard is warm and sunny, it is always cold and wet, scary stuff

I have no first hand experience :-) but I guess it feels like sliping under unconsciousness when drugged for an operation. The Bible describes death as a deep sleep in which we ll go and that we all arise with heavenly bodies for judgement day together. Hopefully one will not experience the cold wet ground but our earthly bodies will perish and tun back to earth.

Ella-Bella what wonderful deep question you have asked, I read through all that has answered before me, and it touched me deeply. I cannot possibly give you an answer on your question. But to say that I hope that at the exact moment you die, you are already in the presence of Jesus, and I hope with all that is in me that this is true. This is a question that has been asked through the ages, not even the most highly qualified Professor's can give us an answer. But if you are are on the righteous path, then I believe you have nothing to fear. I think death in that exact moment is instantaneous, and then you will live for eternity.

Death is something we be subjected to, but I don't believe we will know or feel when it happens. When you die your brain stops functioning and everything switches off, like a computer would re-act to it's plug being pulled out. People who believe they have had death experiences or seem Aliens are talking a load of Bull. Is it not strange that these peoples all describe the same or similar experience, just as Hollywood portrays it. If you can believe that you go to heaven when you die, then believing in Aliens and death experiences is about the same thing. Live every moment of your life to it's full potential and don't worry about where you are going after you die, you are going nowhere, like the computer that won't restart again.

My sister and I had a near death experience, we both nearly drowned. It was a highly intense moment!! But the strange thing is everything was so clear. When my legs had grown too tired and I was sitting on the ocean floor (literally) and looking up, I could see the waves breaking and I remember everything being so CRYSTAL clear. I felt as if all the questions I'd ever had, had been answered. It is an incredibly spiritual moment. I wasn't scared, but I remember then seeing my sisters legs kicking furiously and slowing down as she too, began to drown and that ripped me from wherever I thought I was going, and I used the last ounce of energy in me to get to her and miraculously we both survived. No one but her and I will ever understand the magnitude of that day...

I don't think we'll truly know before we get there, but that final moment of just being at peace sounds wonderful. I'd rather go that way than in pain.

Calm and peaceful, the people I was with when they died.
