I attended the wedding of a friend. During the course of the wedding someone slipped a drug into my drink. When I passed out, due to the drug this same person offered to bring me home. After he raped and beat me, he left me on the side of the road. Luckily, a paramedic was on the way home stopped and began CPR.
I do not know exactly when the NDE began, if I was in the hospital or lying on the road. What I know is that I did perceive myself as having a body. I wandered down dark hallways and believed I was lost. I didn't know how I had gotten there, I didn't know where I was. I was very frightened and wanted to find a way out. I kept walking down this hallway for an unknown amount of time.
Finally, I saw light coming from a door ahead of me. I rushed to it and entered. Inside, there was a window with golden light shining through it. A bed was up against the wall opposite from the window. I cannot say if I heard a voice or if it was inside of my head, but it told me to laydown, it wasn't time yet.
I laid down in the bed. When I awoke, I was in a hospital bed with IV's and a catheter. I knew what had happened to me (sexual assault) but I didn't understand what the weird "dream" was. I twas years later that someone told me what it was.
Now that I know, I have come to understand that I was dead, but something greater than me, knew Iwould continue on in this life. I have never forgotten and probably never will. I do know that in some ways it's still frightening and in other ways, it's comforting. I do hope that when I do die, we can skip the whole dark hallway thing and go straight to the beautiful golden light!
