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.

"Burned the candle at both ends"

My NDE happened when I was 18 years old—the summer before my freshman year of college. I was enrolled at a University in Florida and had two summer jobs, lots of friends and dated heavily. I rarely slept and "burned the candle at both ends." As a result, I succumbed to mononucleosis for the second time. (I supposedly had it before when I was 6 or 7 years old. Some doctors believe that it never completely goes away)

Ancestors Care About Us and Our World

Diagnosed terminal and in and out of consciousness for several weeks, I had been told there was no help on too many planes to explain here. Regardless, I was 39 days into a 30 day life expectancy. I weighed not only the opportunity for assistance but the practicality of it as well. I slept for hours during the days and nights. I was sicker than sick. My doctors later explained that was the sickest any human being could ever be. I was at the doorway of death in both mind and body. Most of my memory of those days are limited to say the least. As are any recollections of any dreams. Dreams were just seemingly non-existent for me and honestly still are rare today. But the one memory and the events

Grandma heard me!

I crashed my bicycle when several friends and I were playing follow the leader and we were jumping a manhole cover. I flipped over and landed on my head. I can remember leaving my body and seeing myself on the ground there was no pain but I felt panic because I didn't understand what was going on.
