The simple answer is that some know instantly and some figure it out rather quickly. In cases where people first have an out-of-body experience and are looking down from above at their body, there is sometimes a bit of a surprise at seeing their lifeless body. Yet this surprise doesn’t last long, as it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out you’re dead when you’re looking down at your body from above. So it’s a very brief moment in most cases before we realize we’re no longer alive.
For those who do not have the out-of-body experience where they see their body before them, they generally find themselves in an entry-level place that many have described as a darkness that has light within it. One person I interviewed said it was a peaceful, velvety darkness that lit up wherever she focused her attention. Others have some sort of tunnel experience, which varies in description from person to person. Still others find themselves at the entryway to the spirit world where all that bright, warm, loving light exists. If you don’t know you’re dead by this point (which happens in the blink of an eye), someone in spirit will tell you, because there will be loved ones in spirit, as well as spirit guides, who are waiting to greet you there.
For many people, a spirit guide, angel or deceased loved one in spirit will greet you soon after you’ve exited your human body and will caringly escort you to the spirit world. In some cases, these spiritual beings are welcoming you home days or minutes before you’ve even died (deathbed visions). Regardless of who greets you, they will let you know that your human life is over (if you don’t already know) and help you get reacquainted with your spiritual essence.
