Floating Over the Water

While having a family day at the beach I trusted my ability to swim at the time would allow me to follow a friend further into the water; however, I lost him. I looked around but could not see him. Then I got nervous and started floating because I was getting tired of swimming. The waves were coming over my face. It was hard to breath, and I knew I might not make it to shore.

I vaguely remember turning to see the shoreline for the last time with all the people having a good time, unaware of my whereabouts. Then I felt a calming sensation as if I were watching the people on a movie. I didn't feel afraid. I felt a sensation of floating over the water, watching myself and not hurting or having any thoughts about being in distress. The last thing I remember is seeing how a man grabbed my hair to pull me from the water. It all seemed to have happened rather quickly, but I have no idea how much time had passed. When I was taken ashore my first feeling of pain was having my chest hurt and choking to let air fill my lungs. My lungs felt like I had fire in them thus the burning sensation.

I kept thinking about how close I had been to not making it that day. I didn't realize, until much later in the week, that I saw myself being pulled out of the water!

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.

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 ...
