Four Returns

E-mail

I have several experiences to share, starting with one that occurred in February 2008. I died for 20 minutes from heart failure and was shocked five times by an ambulance crew. At the hospital, I was put in an induced coma with freezer bags for five days. During that time I was given a blessing by my LDS (Latter Day Saints) bishop. I only had a 2% chance of living with strong probability of no brain functionality and becoming a vegetable. When I awoke from the coma, my first words were that my bishop had given me a blessing.

Over the next months, I slowly came back to consciousness; eventually I returned to work and a relatively normal life. I noticed an increased sensitivity to light and color. Even now, I have no recollection about the couple of months before, during or after the incident.

Additionally, I had a NDE at 14 years old after being thrown from a motorcycle at 35 mph. And, in September 1982, after developing a fever and wrapping myself in a sleeping bag to get warm, my spirit rose above my body and looked down through a dark, silvery tunnel some 30-40 feet above my body. I had been given a blessing by a member of my local congregation and immediately returned to my body. And lastly, in 1993, I died for about five minutes from a pulmonary embolism, but was not allowed to remember anything from the experience.

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.

NDE in Pre-Term Labor

I was in the hospital with pre-term labor. The physician on duty administered turbutaline (brethine) intravenously. Within seconds, I didn't feel right, grew very hot and had barely said "Something doesn't feel right" when I blinked out of my normal version of consciousness and blinked into the void. The medication stopped my heart (I later learned). I was in a vast dark place that was quite peaceful. I wasn't sure where I was but knew that I was fully conscious and no longer in my body. I tried to wiggle my toes and fingers but discovered I had none. I knew I existed in only pure consciousness.
