Following Spiritual Guide toward White Tunnel

Around 2:00 a.m. Saturday, March 3, 2001, I woke up and felt as if I was hit in the chest with a sledgehammer. I was having a heart attack. I immediately took two aspirins (why I don't know, probably from hearing it on TV) and told my wife to call 911.

I was in intense pain when the paramedics arrived. The paramedics tried to help me. According to the paramedics I flat lined. At first I heard one paramedic say, "Stay with us Jim." Then I heard nothing.

All pain was gone and I was in a very comfortable state. I was totally peaceful; it was total bliss and total harmony at the same time. Then I saw a tunnel that was lit up with white light but it wasn't hard on the eyes. Then I noticed I was following another being whom I didn't know toward the tunnel for a long period of time. I couldn't catch up to this person.

This peaceful state lasted for some time but then I felt intense pain and burning in the chest again. Apparently the paramedics zapped me three times, up to 360 joules. Then I heard their voices and was very upset because they had disturbed my peace. They said I used some pretty rough language.

I don't tell many people about the experience because they look at me funny or think I'm crazy. I told the head Nun at our local Catholic church when we moved to Wisconsin from Illinois and it went right over her head, like I was not important to her. It is very important to me. However, I did talk to a Shaman from the Ojibwa Tribe in Northern Wisconsin and he told me the figure I was following toward the tunnel was my spiritual guide. To this day I believe him.

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.

NDE in Pre-Term Labor

I was in the hospital with pre-term labor. The physician on duty administered turbutaline (brethine) intravenously. Within seconds, I didn't feel right, grew very hot and had barely said "Something doesn't feel right" when I blinked out of my normal version of consciousness and blinked into the void. The medication stopped my heart (I later learned). I was in a vast dark place that was quite peaceful. I wasn't sure where I was but knew that I was fully conscious and no longer in my body. I tried to wiggle my toes and fingers but discovered I had none. I knew I existed in only pure consciousness.
