Near death experiences, or NDEs, often trigger being even more sensitive. I experienced this in my own life at about 10 years old when I came close to drowning and again in 1978 after giving birth to my youngest son.
We are spirit living in physical bodies. Most of us do not remember what heaven was like, but for those having crossed over and come back, it is a memory that increases our sense of spirit and, possibly, our sensitivity to life as well.
If you are already Highly Sensitive Person, having a NDE may make you even that much more sensitive. In fact, it can leave you completely open to seeing others and the world in a whole new light with a whole new perception of how life, the world, could be if love were always in place. This can be disheartening as love seems so absent at times. What's more, you won't be able to live your life without love as you might have thought you could before for NDE.
After a Near Death Experience you may find yourself trying to create your own heaven on earth, as to act out of love for yourself and others often becomes a high priority. This may mean making big changes in your life and change can be frightening. Might I add, resistance to these types of changes can cause emotional and physical symptoms and syndromes and, when living with herpes simplex virus, emotional stress can trigger breakouts.
