Soon, her scenery changed to mountains, the back garden of her childhood home and all the places she felt the most connected to nature.

As she woke up, Courtney claims she was unable to speak as her body felt completely stiff, but soon regained a suitable state to be discharged.

 Further tests revealed she had suffered vasovagal syncope, a condition which often occurs due to high levels of emotional distress.

It causes a prolonged episode of fainting where the heart stops for up to 10 seconds but is not deemed life-threatening. 

Weeks earlier, Courtney had suffered a bad breakup and the death of a friend.

The mum does not believe her experience was a typical case.

“I’m 100% certain what I saw was the ‘in-between’ and was much more than a fainting episode," she said.

In the clip, she details her ordeal, noting that she had a feeling something was going to go wrong during her routine examination.

She continues explaining the situation across another two videos, before ending by saying: “When we die, we’re not gone and where we go, we’re happy.”

TikTok user Lisa Marshall said: “Before my dad died he reported several visions of me at various ages…I’m very much alive. He used no drugs."

Another person added: “I’m a sudden cardiac arrest survivor. Four days in a coma. Honey, I believe you. I already know.” I had a very similar experience last year. Felt like I was in a different dimension,” Karen Rookard commented.
