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.

My experience was of being killed in a tractor accident when I was 15 years old, and becoming a spirit, standing next to my uncle as he kept driving the tractor not knowing I was pulled into the wheel and axle of the farm tractor. He was driving while watching the potato rows, so as not to run over them. When I heard a voice on my left side call out his name, he stopped the tractor and got off to go around looking at the sprayers and the whole time I am just watching him.

Left for dead on a pile of snow

I was a college sophomore. A former roommate had married and was pregnant, due anyday. Her husband needed to go out of state for an interview. They called me to see if I would stay the weekend with my former roommate. We always had so much fun together, I couldn't wait! They picked me and we drove to their small one bedroom apartment. Her husband left and we were alone in the apartment.

Soulful Journey
I was hit by a truck after getting off the school bus when I was in 3rd grade. I remember looking up at a crowd of people staring down at me in shock and a paramedic ripping my jeans to see my right leg that was broken. A broken femur, 6 cracked ribs, punctured lungs and barely hanging on ...
