Floating Like A Helium Balloon

When I was 13, one night my family and I were returning from watching films at the local drive-in. We rode in our station wagon. My baby brothers slept in the back. My mom sat in the middle row of seats. I was in the passenger seat and my dad drove. A drunk driver came out of nowhere and hit us head on. I remember seeing the drunk's car coming toward us clearly but in slow motion. Everything happened so fast on impact. All I remember clearly is suddenly being enveloped in complete darkness. It was quiet and warm, very comforting, and cozy. I did not feel scared at all. It was comforting. I saw a white light far above me, kind of like what it looks like when you're underwater and you see the sun shine above. It was a warm light, like being in sunshine. Then after that --I don't know how long it took--I just remember waking up covered in blood in the vehicle wreck, but I was not in pain (albeit my injuries were severe). I felt safe. Someone was trying to take me out of the wreck. They put me into someone else's car and drove me to the hospital ER. About three years later, I was riding my bicycle home from high school when a driver ran a stop sign and hit me really hard and fast from the side. I flew over the vehicle and landed head first onto the pavement. I remember feeling my body float up in the air and seeing myself lying on the street surrounded by people. It felt like I was a helium balloon floating above the accident scene. I felt calm. When I noticed my school uniform skirt was up and showing my underwear, I became self-conscious and panicked! The next thing I knew, I felt my body being sucked back into my body. I then pushed my skirt down and came into consciousness.

Riptide Spirit Guide

I was eight years old when I was pulled under the water by a strong riptide at the beach. I remember trying to swim out of the tide but I couldn't. The next thing I remember was losing my breath and seeing my life flash by, which was very short since I was only eight years old.

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.
