I was in the hospital with serious pneumonia and a major allergic skin rash. I was in the hospital room by myself one night, when I found myself moving "above" my body. It was somewhat like sleeping, but I was aware that I was having the dream. Next, I found myself in a very dark, cold place. I did not want to stay in the cold, dark area. I came to a high vertical wall, and felt compelled to climb up it. When I reached the top of the wall, I was instantly surrounded by the most beautiful, pure light and colors that cannot even be imagined.
The light was everywhere and went into me. I felt pure love, acceptance, and perfect happiness. The grass and colors beneath me were of the purest colors. There was also music like bells. There appeared before me a lovely woman dressed in white (an angel). She and I traveled across the grass toward a building. We communicated without speaking, telepathically. We entered a large building with a long hall. As we passed down the hall, others were passing us and going in the opposite direction. People communicated with me without speaking. I remember someone saying the word "cancer." When the woman and I reached the end of the hall, we came to a room. I stood at the entrance to the room and looked in. I saw a room that had many levels (an infinite number of levels). On each level, there were many people doing activities that they loved. I recall just a couple of the levels, a beach and a ballroom. I did not enter the room because at that point the angel informed me that it was "not my time." Instantly, I was back in the cold, dark place. I do not recall traveling back out of the building or across the grass again.
I was back in my body and in a lot of pain again. I can remember awaking with the feeling that I had the most amazing experience (or dream) of my life. Since that "dream" of 15 years ago, I have not forgot any aspect of the experience. It has continued to be the most profound experience of my life. Every part of the "dream" is still with me as if it just happened yesterday.
One thing that I have noticed since the NDE is that I have many instances of precognition. I had very clear precognition before my father died 10 years ago. Two days before he suddenly died, I had a dream that I would get a phone call saying that a male member of the family has died. The day before he died I was filled with a tremendous sense of dread and fear. The next morning my mother called to tell me that he had died. I have had several other precognitive experiences, including dreams of plane crashes and traumatic events the night before they happen; a dream of a highway collapsing a few days before it occurs; and fairly accurate dreams before family members pass away.
