Yikes, more of this out-of-body stuff that supposedly proves the reality of "heaven." This is one from Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon who had such an experience and of course wrote a book on it, Proof of Heaven. It's not out yet but Amazon has a page on it started.
The demons are working awfully hard promoting this particular deception these days.
If you know and believe the Bible you should be able to spot these reports as false, but those who reject the Bible may fall for them.
Notice that they NEVER give the gospel of Jesus Christ, that He is God incarnate who died for our sins. They give an otherworldly experience and often a false idea of God and Jesus -- that is, false according to the Bible.
As a Bible-believer I know these stories are deceptions. I believe they are real, however, in the sense that they are actual experiences of a real spiritual realm these people are having, and not hallucinations or tricks of the mind. But Heaven isn't the only spiritual realm, and demons are very clever at deceiving people.
Jesus died for your sins and ONLY those who are saved by believing in Him, saved by the blood He shed on the cross to pay for our sins, saved by faith alone in Christ alone through grace alone, can expect to see Heaven or the new earth.
These illusions are all designed to deceive unbelievers into thinking they, and everybody else, will go to heaven. It's an evil lie concocted by the demons, or fallen angels. Unfortunately some Christians believe this stuff too and contribute to the deception. Really depressing.
