Waved Back by an Angel

In 2002 I was throw from a horse, broke my back in six places, and suffered a concussion. I was brought to the hospital and given iodine for a cat scan. Unbeknownst to me then, I was allergic to iodine and my heart stopped while I was in the cat scan. 

My pain stopped. I heard the bell ringing and hospital personnel saying, "code blue, code blue." I thought oh someone died and they need to take care of the people and are going to leave me alone to do that.  Then when I came out of the cat scan tunnel I saw all of these people running over to me but I was above them looking down. I then realized I was dead. 

I remember thinking if I am dead then where is the white light and the tunnel I heard so much about ? Just as I had the thought I saw the light and the tunnel. It was golden. I walked into it and it seemed to be getting narrower and narrower. I felt like I was shrinking. As I got to the the apex of the tunnel there was an angel in white and she waved me back. 

At that moment, hospital personnel were giving me a shot of adrenaline into my heart. I felt myself pop back into my body and the pain of my broken bones.  I opened my eyes.  The nurses said, "you scared us, we thought we lost you for good."

The Light Within

My father had died a few months before. We had a many issues between us, and it was very difficult to let him go. I refused to leave his side while he was dying, as if to make up for all the things that happened while he was alive.After his death I experienced grief. Wow, I never knew it would feel like that! I forgot how to do my job or relate to other people. I had a hard time acting and feeling normal, but I managed to get by.

Everything is Love

One evening, I was talking with a friend on the phone who knew that I was interested in exploring different spiritual practices and religions. He said, "Hey, you should check out a Society of Friends meeting. They don't have any sermons and just meditate for an hour or so together." I was intrigued and after we hung up I looked them up on the Internet. I found out that they were what I knew as "the Quakers" and after only a few minutes of searching, came across a posting that explained a style of meditation they do called "Looking for the light within." I printed it out, took it to my bed and read what it said. It was very simple: Get into a comfortable position, close your eyes, focus your attention on the darkness and look for a light within. When you see a light, focus on it. So that's exactly what I did.
