Hurried to the Light

On July 4,2004, I was put in the hospital for at that time an unknown cause. Later they realized that I needed my appendix removed. I was taken into surgery for removal and after recovery. I was brought to my room where my family was waiting for me. Not long after surgery my mother noticed that the drain tube in my side was filling up with blood fast and then called the nurse. She emptied the tube several times before realizing that I had internal bleeding. They called the surgeon back in and upon his arrival I had lost a lot of blood. The doctor sat at my bedside and held my pulse to make sure I didn’t die until they could get back into surgery. After preparing me for the operation once again, they took me back into surgery. By this time I had lost consciousness and then flat lined two times.

During this time, I opened my eyes and could feel something different. I was in a dark tunnel with space on each side of me. I could tell I was moving and I didn't know how. I was floating toward light shining through a crack in a door. This light was so bright that it hurt my eyes. I was going toward this light. Then I felt something wrap around me (draped over my shoulders). A voice came into my ear saying, "Cindy ask him to forgive you." I said, “Oh Lord forgive me." The voice came into my ear again saying, "Now Cindy ask him to help you." I did. At the same time while moving toward the light I heard my mother saying, "Cindy please don’t leave me like this." I was in a great hurry to get to this light, and the closer I came to it the more the brightness took over the door. I couldn't get there fast enough.

Almost entering the light, the voice came again and said, "Cindy you have a short time." I was so mad because I didn't get to stay and remember being mad for several days after that. I opened my eyes and saw my family and asked them if I died. My sister said, "No, you’re okay now." I said, "No I died." Then I proceeded to tell them what happened to me.

The day I was released to go home I can remember the whole world looked new. Everything was shiny and bright and I felt wonderful. My life was forever changed mentally and spiritually. I now testify to those who are lost or just need help about life or death. Thank God for this experience.

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.
