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.

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.
