Sharon Stone saw the “other side” after close call with death 2



View Profile

Sharon Stone has given us some of the cinema’s most unforgettable moments but one of the most dramatic moments for her didn’t happen in a film.

In 2001 Sharon suffered an aneurysm, more specifically a subarachnoid brain haemorrhage. Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, she shared “I bled in my brain for nine days. I spent two years learning to walk and talk again”. Sharon continued “I came home from that stroke stuttering, couldn’t read for two years. I was in an ICU for nine days, and the survival rate for what I went through is very low.”

While having the aneurysm Sharon said that she says she saw a “white light.” Talking to the Hollywood Star, “I feel that I did die,” the Hollywood star said. “This kind of giant vortex of white light was upon me and — poof! I sort of took off into this glorious, bright white light.”

The light wasn’t the only thing that she saw during the ordeal, “I started to see and be met by some of my friends … people who were very, very dear to me [who had died]. I had a real journey with this that took me to places both here and beyond.

“But it was very fast — whoosh! Suddenly, I was back. I was in my body.”

Sharon has said that the experience has made sure that her life has never been the same but has given her a gift in return. “I get not to be afraid of dying and I get to tell other people that it’s a fabulous thing, and death is a gift”.

  1. My Mum, Uncle Jack, my husband and I were at hospital where another Uncle had just received the last rites. He was laying in bed with his eyes shut, then all of a sudden his eyes opened and looking up this amazing smile appeared, he was so happy. Closed eyes and passed away. This occasion has stayed with me and i am absolutely sure someone or something was there, i am now not scared of death. He had great love for his Mother, my Nanna and i think she was the vision he saw. R.I.P

    • I have mentioned before on this page of my experience ,my husband passed 5 years ago, 10 months later he kept giving me a message “Annie I want to talk”, well talk he has, for 4 years now we talk through a wonderful medium, I record what he tells me about his life and he allows me to ask questions, and I record it all on video camera which I put into Word, and he tells the medium every thing I have done since we last met, and mentions many occasions through my life, I now have over 4,000 pages of text, which he says he wants kept for future humanity, he has also brought all my family through from Scotland, they wish to be in my notes they tell me, like a family talking tree, how is this, I didn’t come to Australia until I was in my late 40’s , my medium had never been out of Australia, we had never met, how did she know I was in the forces, and had lived in Africa and Germany, not just Scotland… as a non believer in the past and meeting my first ever medium I am truly convinced that they are all around us, and when our time comes they will be there to assist us through
