Vision – Halo Light or Near Death Experience

Could anybody please explain what is that sign really mean!!

Back in summer 2005, I was holiday in Croatia spend all day at the beach and when I returned to deceased’s grandparent home, I realized I had really bad sunburn with all painful big blisters on my back so I went to bed early at about 9pm to get some big rest.

While I was sleeping, at about 1am there was bright light poke through my eye lids and then I open both eyelids and found Bright White Halo light last about few seconds before vanished. I thought that was something wrong with eyes.

I slept again and 30 min later that same white bright halo light disturbed my eye lids again. When I open both eye to find out what is it. I saw a young dress women standing in the tunnel last about 10 – 15 seconds. When I smile at her and then smile back to me before the tunnel vision fade away.

All of sudden I jump out of bed to investigate and switch the light on. I did not find anything in the room, hallway and out to the window.

This could be my grand mother pay a visited to me. Can anyone please explain.


What do YOU think?



  1. When someone dies, he becomes a SPIRIT, a bodiless spirit, i.e. without a temple, or a tent. Whether these spirits enter Christ’s rest immediately or hang around for a limited time before disappearing into the great beyond to await the ressurection of their bodies on the morn of rapture, I don’t know.

    One thing I know for certain however is that, the evil ones are immediately literally dragged to Hell and the good ones, the saved and chosen of God are transported to rest in Heaven. Maybe, Christ may give them a chance to have a look and bid farewell to loved ones and in some cases, a visible image of the person may be seen, as in your case and as in the case of my grand dad. When he died, my father claimed to have seen him in shimmering white robes.

    However, why I will doubt your grand mom’s appearance after death as genuine is because of the Halo. Halos were invented by men, mostly the Roman Catholic and personally, I think it’s pagan. The saints, the Earthly parents of Jesus all had Halos in Catholic paintings and mosaics and that’s not what the Bible says.

    Like one of the comments, it may be a trick by Satan to tempt you into dabbling into occultism.
    Test all Spirits, and remember, Satan can disguise himself as an angel of Light….he once was anyways. So be careful.

    • Hey my name is Samantha.Yes it could be satan I dont know, Ive been seeing flashes of light too are they angels or….?Im lost on this one.i mean not halos but, sometimes it looks like a flashlight or a flickering light , and they just come out of nowhere.You all seem to know more then I do Id like to know you alls opinion.Whenever you can please get back to me.-Samantha Wilson

  2. I’m not sure why it’s being sad that it must’ve been something evil. Did you have any kind of confirmation that it might’ve been what you felt it was originally?

    The reason I ask, when I was around the age of 8 I had a short dream of my Grandmother telling me that she just wanted to let me know that she was fine. I immediately woke up and saw nothing and went back to sleep.

    I was over 1,000 miles away and had no idea that she had just passed away a few hours earlier. In fact, I didn’t find out for almost a week. I also discovered that she had been in the hospital and unresponsive for weeks. A few hours before she passed away she was moved into a regular room so her family could visit her. She suddenly woke up and it was like she was 30 years younger. Laughing and having fun with her family. When she went to sleep, she never woke up. It was the same night I had my encounter.

    I don’t believe we are instantaneously entering heaven within seconds of our death. I believe Jesus can grant us a chance to say goodbye and look over our loved ones one last time.

    • Timothy Luke says:

      In answering this, we all see through a glass darkly at this time. Why would it be said that it must be something evil? Here is an answer:

      Not everything evil feels bad, or looks bad. There are seducing spirits that seek to tweak our perceptions and relationships with God by things that make us feel good or warm and fuzzy, but are not of God. They can lead us down a course of curiosity that takes us away from God, if we follow after them seeking answers for what we experienced, or trying to duplicate that experience.

      In your case, did it encourage you as a boy to pray or speak to your grandmother after she died? Such a temptation may exist, given the circumstance and your innocent age… yet, the Bible calls that necromancy and tells us it is forbidden in Deuteronomy 18. Why would God forbid it, if the people were real that we were speaking to?

      The devil could use such an occurance to lead to temptation and dabbling in occultism. Does this mean your Grandmother was evil? No. It's just the enemy playing a trick.

      If we miss the Kingdom of God by inches, or a mile, it makes no difference.  It is said to be evil because it does not lead us to righteousness, but opens the door to a pursuit of things forbidden of God. Now, if you did not follow after the seduction, praise God! Did anyone in your family hearing your testimony of this follow after seeking communication with Grandma? I don't know… Not every snare of the enemy is filled with game, but it does not mean it is not a snare nonetheless.

      Blessings and Peace,



    FrIend, this was not your grandmother, and it was not from God. The spirits of human beings when they die go to either heaven or hell; they do not remain to wander around. What you saw was what the Bible refers to as a familiar spirit. 

    A familiar spirit is a demonic spirit that is familiar with someone, and therefore able to impersonate them; in particular those that have died. Be careful that your curiosity in the afterlife does not go beyond the boundary of scripture, for that can open the door for such demonic activity. 

    When God sends an angel or gives a vision, there is no speculation as to why He did so, for He makes His purposes plain and simple (I Corinthians 14:33). Furthermore, His message will always point to Jesus, and will never be contrary to the written Word of God  (John 16:13-14).   

    Satan comes as an angel of light in order to lie and deceive (II Corinthians 11:14).

      Thanks for explaining on what is that sign really mean. After I witnessed this, I have been strengthen myself in the fact that the Heavenly father, Son and the Holy spirits do exists. It’s unbelievable that the demonic spirits are lurking around. I am spreading the God words to all my friends who don’t follow or being inactive.

      I goes to church every fortnight and I am trying to do more often by going to church every weekend to strengthen my faith and be closer to God.

      Hopefully that familiar spirit would not come back to me again or maybe just that house is a haunted house and needs to be blessed by the local priest to ward off the evil spirit.


    • I don’t know where you got your information but I thought no one went to Hell (Lake of Fire) until after the Judgment Day.

      But before we discuss this I agree with all else you have said.

      I know some will point to the parable of the rich man and Lazarus but it was just a story to show how one must believe the one who “rose from the dead”. It was a skillful story made up to express a point.

      The Greek for Hell in that passage is actually Hades – the place for the dead, and the proof for this that they are different is found in Revelation:
      “And death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death.”

      Therefore death, Hell/Hades and the Lake of Fire are all different things.

      In 1 Corinthians 15 the word is translated as “grave”

      If there was only two places for the dead to go why would the scriptures inform us of: And the sea gave up the dead in it. And death and hell [that is Hades] gave up the dead in them. And they were each judged according to their works.

      Rev 20:14-15 And death and hell [Hades] were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. (15) And if anyone was not found having been written in the Book of Life, he was cast into the Lake of Fire.

      I think the use of the word Hell to cover all of death and Lake of Fire is a bad translation.

      • I understand that there are two "hells" not counting the idea of "the grave" that some like to emphasize.


        There is a temporary hell in which demons torment lost souls awaiting the Final Judgment of God, and then there is the Gehenna – the Lake of Fire, in which the devil and his demons as well as all of lost humanity will be thrown after the Judgment.


        In the same way, Christians who die will be present with the Lord immediately, and be taken to heaven. However, heaven is not our final destination. God has planned to set up a New Earth. We see that clearly in the Book of Revelation.

        • I don’t understand where you got the idea for “There is a temporary hell in which demons torment lost souls awaiting the Final Judgment of God”?

          I can’t seem to find any reference for that in scripture.

          • Jesus never said that the story in Luke 16 about the rich man and Lazarus was a parable. Jesus doesn't mislead.

            Ezekiel 32:21 says:  "The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the midst of hell with them that help him: they are gone down, they lie uncircumcised, slain by the sword."

            We have people speaking in hell.

            I recall other passages in Ezekiel which affirm this.

            Its good enough for me.


            PLUS – and you won't like this – my interpretation of Scripture is backed up by HEAPS of testimonial evidence from Christians and unbelievers who have visited hell.

          • Timothy Luke says:

            I think the part in question is the "demons" doing the tormenting to humans. That is not in scripture, though NDE stories may carry that. I believe it was Dante's Inferno that introduced the topic of demons delighting as overlords of darkness…. but of course that probably comes out of the mythologies of paganism.

            Biblically speaking, Hell is also the place devils are tormented… so I don't think they really care about making it harder for people.

          • Hell is as real as anything you can see and touch here and now, but you cannot see hell because it’s spiritual.
            Many a people, Christians and non believers alike have come in contact with this Hell and their lives have changed forever.
            The story of Lazarus and the Rich man clearly illustrates the immediate afterlife and that’s how it is. Evil men who die in their evil deeds are transported to Hell to be TORMENTED. Hell is a place of torment, it is a prison, it’s like a detention cell before the judgment of God.

            The same way, Heaven as we call it is a place of rest for the spirits of men who have been saved by Christ.
            The Holy City of Jerusalem, the Heavenly Jerusalem exists now, as I write in heaven, and therein resides God, his angels, and the spirits of thousands who have died and now live as Christ’s saved ones.
            Luk 15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is JOY IN THE PRESENCE of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

            When the day of reckoning comes, God will descend to Earth and judge all those that have died in their sins. At this time, Hell will deliver the spirits in it and everyone will be judged and according to the greatness of their sins will be rewarded.

            After the eternal seperation of sin from saved men and the eternal damnation of satan and his followers, This Holy City of Jerusalem will literally descend to the new Earth, with everyone in it.
            There is a Hell now, and it is for unrepentant sinners, whose names are not in the Book of Life….even Jesus descended to the Lower parts of the Earth, to Hell…..or Hades.
