An out of body experience is often taken and seen a much more than it really is. Many people who experience this event feel that a higher power of some sort was trying to speak to them in order to send a message. Take for example the video i posted and how this man feel that he was being directly communicated with. Although this out of body experience that this man had is probably nothing more than a vivid dream that he was able to remember, you can see how he thought we was being directly communicated with.
Though research we are able to have a general idea of why these out of body experience occur. It is common that out of body experiences occur during a times of extreme stress. For example when someone is stranded in the wilderness and becoming dehydrated or about to have surgery. These types of situations have an adverse effect on how the brain operates. These effects cause the brain to see things in a different way causing what feels like an out of body experience. Knowing how and why this happens gives a different perspective of what actually happening rather then saying Jesus was sending them a message.
