David Ditchfield’s NDE Gifted Him New Abilities

David Ditchfield’s NDE Gifted Him New Abilities

In 2006 David Ditchfield was dragged under a speeding train in a freak accident. As the surgeons fought to save him, he had an amazing near-death experience (NDE).  David’s experience altered him in profound ways.

When he woke up in hospital, he had acquired astonishing new abilities.

He found he could paint dramatic paintings of what he had seen in the Afterlife, far beyond any artistic ability he had before.

He then discovered he could compose classical music, having never received any training. To this day, he cannot read or write a single note of musical notation, and yet his debut NDE-inspired symphony, The Divine Light, was premiered at a sell-out orchestral concert to a standing ovation.
