High Above

I was under anesthesia for an appendectomy. During the operation I suddenly experienced a very disturbing feeling of not being able to take a breath. I remember trying with all my force for a while, maybe six or eight times, but I couldn't. Somehow there was no connection between my brain and lungs. I knew I was dying, and I was aware of all circumstances (being operated on). I instinctively waited to be afraid, but I wasn't. This was a pleasant surprise. Then, I was not trying to breathe anymore. Rather, I just let go and became very aware that it was the end. I was not afraid.

In an instant, I was high above the operating table and I saw everyone rushing around my body. I saw that they were talking fast, but I couldn't hear anything. I remember feeling very clear, having access to all my consciousness from the whole life and feeling the ability of pulling any thought or information if I needed to, but I did not need to do that. I remember thinking, "Why are they freaking out like this? Everything will be fine!" In an instant I felt a few strong, very cold blows of forced air into my lungs. I was not above the table anymore. I had another thought, "They did it!" After that thought I did not experience anything until I woke up from the anesthesia. I asked what had happened. They said I had a cardiac arrest. They were very surprised to find out that I knew.

My life has not changed significantly after this experience, and I have talked about it to only a few people. However, I have experienced some increased sensitivity and an ability to instinctively "know" things. It is not an ability to foresee things. It is a discovery, an awareness of knowledge that something is going to happen a certain way. Usually I'm not aware until it has already happened. Then after a while I discover that I had known about it earlier.

No surgeries!

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 ...
