Presentation description: Yvonne Sneeden is a NDE experiencer and the IANDS Group Leader for Raleigh, NC (International Association of Near Death Studies). Yvonne will share her near death experience and will also present the preview of the documentary she is co-producing “Back From The Light”, focusing on the after effects of a Near Death Experience.
Bio: In 2008, a life crisis led to Yvonne Sneeden having a near-death experience. During her experience, Yvonne entered a heavenly realm and encountered Jesus and various angelic beings. Yvonne is a member of both IANDS (International Association for Near Death Studies) and ACISTE (American Center for the Integration of Spiritually Transformative Experiences).
Yvonne is the executive co-producer together with Robert Neal Marshall of “Back From The Light”, a film-documentary focusing on the near death experience survivors and the after effects. This film is apropos because it helps Experiencers realize they are among many, around the world, who had a similar experience and have to live with the remembrance of an event which has no earthly point of comparison. The film is an exciting journey bringing together Near Death Experiencers, family and friends, with the specific focus on the after-effects of such a life transforming experience and how they have readjusted to a ‘normal’ life. It takes us into a journey of exploration of what life is like on a daily basis, following the “return”, on an emotional and physiological level, and how spiritual beliefs and relationship drastically changed.. The film will premiere at the next IANDS national conference in San Antonio Texas and a preview will be shown during the ASCS conference.
Yvonne is also currently working in collaboration with Sabine Van Den Bulke, psychotherapist and movement therapist with expertise in NDE Experiencers, and Mary-Jo Bullbrook, Director Graduate Program in Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM ) in bringing spiritual and emotional support to help near-death experiencers cope with NDE after-effects.
Yvonne’s NDE story
Deep emotional life crisis lead to Yvonne’s Near Death Experience, in conjunction with strong medicines for heart arrhythmia. This profound and powerful life changing event, during which Yvonne visited a part of the place she calls ‘Heaven’, transcended her faith and heightened her understanding of Love, Compassion, Goodness, Kindness, and Acceptance of all. Since her profound experience, Yvonne is striving to bring the elements of the NDE into her daily life and in her interaction with others. She feel it is important to share what she learned from her NDE experience and bring it together for the common good of all and thus, help each and everyone of us to live a better life here in the now. Prior to my NDE, Yvonne’s professional career background includes working in the foreign diplomatic service in Europe. This has enabled her to meet people from around the world with very different backgrounds and through the course of her career, she has realized that regardless of the level of social and public influence people exercise, we are all on a journey....
Here's another description of Yvonne's experience this is posted on her profile page:
"My NDE occurred in June 2008. My body was shutting down due to extreme emotional distress and my desire to just stop living without being suicidal. I was suddenly transported in a place I call heaven or Home, in a very brilliant and glowing environment with an incredibly effervescent joy. Jesus was coming towards me as an energy/light/translucent being. As he touched me, I felt completely embraced by His Love, both Father's and Mother's love, the love you feel for the ideal parent when you are a child: safety, acceptance, loved, cherished. He wrapped me completely in His love and He kissed me in the purest way, on my face, eyes, cheeks and lips like a Mother kisses her baby with tenderness. Though he was in His light energy form I felt all these expressions of affection he has for me.
"After some telepathic conversations exchanges, Jesus suddenly transformed himself and took a human form. He looked like the Jesus who is traditionally portrayed. He walked on my left towards a magnificent crystal city. It was like a magnificent road on a very sunny day in the best summer vacation day...I could see some beautiful building in the distance... The entire atmosphere was permeating Love, light, joy, happiness, peace, safety, and everything was infinitely possible. Suddenly, I felt to my right some presence coming and turned around and there I saw about a dozen of young angels with long white and pastel color robes making their way to some places. One of them looked at me and then turned his head towards Jesus. When he saw Jesus his face literally shone with incredible light because of the joy he felt. They all rushed in His arms. Jesus told them telepathically that his time was to be shared with me and he very kindly offered they go back to their teachers angels. I look where they went and I saw about 6 or 7 magnificent female angels with long white robes smiling at us/me with love, kindness, tenderness, joy, respect, consideration, purity, light and acceptance. None of the negative feelings find on earth.
"I then told Jesus I was too tired to go back on earth, life was terribly difficult and that many people were mean, selfish, disloyal, unfaithful, uninterested in unconditional love. I told Him I would not make it because I was beyond exhaustion and my body was too broken to enter it back. I wanted to stay home where I related. He looked at me and suddenly stood in space in front of me. He expanded in size to be half a mile tall - He then said" Yvonne, I will fill you with my strength and energy of life. I felt an incredible energy fill my entire being every core of my being was filled with this regenerating energy - He then said to me telepathically “I have so much love for my babies” (meaning all of us on earth) and I said I understood. He went on: "I want to show you how much" He took my 'heart' or my being, my identity, the energy that is me and he merged it, blend it, with His heart and for a moment we were One. I could feel all His feelings of love for the entire humanity, It was mind blowing - Waves of love, of energy, millions of love related emotions, light, power love; so strongly that I became Him. I was Jesus, the same way I was Yvonne, feeling every atom of this powerful heavenly explosion of love for lack of better words. It stopped suddenly and without words, only a knowing, I understood that my time with Jesus in Heaven was coming to an end and It was time for me to come back on earth.......Heaven's love has kept me going with a complete renewed joy...."
