A Wondrous River of Peace

I was talking on the phone and a lightning strike hit me in the face throwing me backward. I separated from my body and observed the people around me. A nurse was waiting to use the phone. She started CPR. I floated away from the scene, saw my children playing and floated out of the building. I was bathed in a bluish, white light that had the sensation of acceleration and direction. I was pure thought flowing in a wondrous river of peace and loving feeling. 

Then instantly I was back and in pain. I saw a cardiologist and neurologist afterward and had no deleterious effects. Within that year, I developed an insatiable desire to listen to piano music, play it, and later to write it. I had a meager exposure to piano for a year of lessons at age seven and had no interest before the lightning. Currently, I'm a case study of Dr. Oliver Sacks.

As are any recollections of any dreams. Dreams were just seemingly non-existent for me and honestly still are rare today. But the one memory and the eventsĀ

Grandma heard me!

I crashed my bicycle when several friends and I were playing follow the leader and we were jumping a manhole cover. I flipped over and landed on my head. I can remember leaving my body and seeing myself on the ground there was no pain but I felt panic because I didn't understand what was going on.

Wow! It's great to be alive!

Working as a technology director for a school district, I was running data cables into a conference room through the ceiling.The ceiling was a suspended ceiling with approximately 4 feet of room from ceiling to building roof. On a ladder, with my head (about eye level) inside a removed ceiling tile, I noticed a red clad electrical wire with a bare wire exposed, coming out of a conduit. Apparently it was hot since I was found on my back on the floor, with ceiling tile debris around me, and the fiberglass ladder twisted in the corner.
