Floating Above My Right Shoulder

When I was 16, I was in a car accident. I was driving way too fast (being a new driver) and lost control of my car. My car went off the right side of the road, hit a large bump, became airborne, and overturned in a drainage ditch. I was not seriously injured (thank goodness), only a broken nose and some cuts and bruises. It was so weird though, because after my car went off the road it seemed like things became slow-motion.

I saw the ditch and knew I was going to hit it, but I guess my mind was going a million miles a minute because I was able to think about what was going to happen, what I was going to miss out on (I was going to the Homecoming football game), how my parents would feel about me being in an accident, and who would call my boyfriend. I was supposed to go to marching band, and it made me feel really sad. All of this happened in a matter of like two seconds.

The weirdest part, however, happened as soon as I hit the bump before the car went airborne. I felt like I was floating above my right shoulder with the roof of the car a foot higher and I was against it. I saw my body, again in slow motion, like a rag doll and I remember thinking, "What the hell? Is that me? What's going on?" And just like that, it was over. The car had flipped, but I didn't realize it until a minute later when I took my seatbelt off and fell out of the seat.

I've tried to explain the experience to other people, and they are just like, "You're crazy." It makes me feel better to know that other people have gone through this type of thing. What I don't understand though, is that I never "died" or was seriously injured. I hope this helps.

Diagnosed terminal and in and out of consciousness for several weeks, I had been told there was no help on too many planes to explain here. Regardless, I was 39 days into a 30 day life expectancy. I weighed not only the opportunity for assistance but the practicality of it as well. I slept for hours during the days and nights. I was sicker than sick. My doctors later explained that was the sickest any human being could ever be. I was at the doorway of death in both mind and body. Most of my memory of those days are limited to say the least. 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.
