Chose Second Chance

At 18 years old I had an experience that I will never forget. Call it a NDE or whatever you want, but it was fantastic. At the time, I was in a very destructive phase in my life, living in youth homes and having an uncertain future. I had mostly dark and hostile thoughts. One day a female staff member and I had been shopping and enroute to the car to go home. We were crossing a transitional place. It was a two-lane road refuge to another. We crossed the first road and then stopped for a red light together with a lot of other people in the refuge. Standing far ahead, a large van stopped in front of the transition and waved us forward. I looked toward the red light and got the perception that it was green for us. I went in front of the van, yet in the corner of my eye I saw a red car coming straight toward me and thought "Now I die!" But, I still had time to think that I had to go up against the cap in order to have the best chance. It felt like I hit the hood and windshield. Then something very strange happened. Suddenly I was in the middle of another dimension.

The surroundings were quite white and extremely bright. It was nothing but a thoroughly comprehensive experience of happiness, peace, and global harmony. I thought, "Wow how cool. It is really like this when you're dead." I saw the outlines of figures or people, I think, completely dressed in white, and with a tremendous flash of light shining in front of me. Also I felt they were all around me. Everyone felt so loving, so warm and welcoming. I heard a voice, or rather it emerges inside my mind. I also see a bright light in front of the people. I get a message or I think about it myself because no one is talking; it's telepathic. The message is quite clear and I feel like it is a calm, secure male voice saying, I need to choose. If I want to I can end my life right now, but I must know that I haven't fulfilled my task yet. I can choose to live on to find and do my job, but then I have to change my life and appreciate it. (I'm not sure if I had really heard this end, but it is understood and my strongest feelings.) Only I can choose. I realize that I have a task on earth to do with my life. Despite the existence that is so unbelievably attractive and I want to be there forever, I chose life and a second chance. Then everything disappeared and it felt like I was being sucked down.

The next thing I remember is hearing people shouting all around me and replying calmly to the girl with me, "Yes, I hear. Yes, everything is fine. It's okay. Don't cry." She was totally shocked and thought I had died. Apparently I had gone straight into the street against a red light, got hit from the side of the car and thrown upon the windshield, flew in the air a few feet, and then bounced on my head on the asphalt before landing on the sidewalk. Everything went quickly and took a few seconds, but I had experienced being in the other dimension for a long time. From the accident I had only a concussion, one knocked out tooth, and abrasions.

I was completely altered after the accident. I was another person, according to those who lived near me. I was happy, laughing, appreciated little things, joked, smiled a lot, became friends with everyone...so completely different than I was before! Some argue that it must be right in my skull after hitting my head. Of course, I was overjoyed that I lived afterward. I really appreciate life in a completely different way because I now know how fast everything can disappear. Mostly it's the amazing feeling that I had been on the other side. I know it's wonderful and it makes me full of happiness! I received a faith and even a conviction after this. Although it has been over 11 years since the accident, I can so feel the complete euphoria that existed and become calm and happy just to think about it. I know doctors believe that the brain creates these experiences when you go into shock and it may be a lack of oxygen. But, how is it that all (in principle) are experiencing the same thing--same light, the white-clad figures, the same voice and all? I read a story from a girl who had a NDE and I became shaky when I realized she had almost the exact same 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!
