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.

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 eventsĀ

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.

Wow! It's great to be alive!

Working as a technology director for a school district, I was running data cables into a conference room through the ceiling.The ceiling was a suspended ceiling with approximately 4 feet of room from ceiling to building roof. On a ladder, with my head (about eye level) inside a removed ceiling tile, I noticed a red clad electrical wire with a bare wire exposed, coming out of a conduit. Apparently it was hot since I was found on my back on the floor, with ceiling tile debris around me, and the fiberglass ladder twisted in the corner.
