Near Death Experience No.1
When I was young, I had a near death experience. I have kept it to my self mostly because mother did not want me to talk about it when I was young.
We lived in an old trailer. The fire in the furnace went out, but it kept smoking. I slept on the top bunk. The house filled with smoke.
Then, I see myself laying on the couch...mom is crying and the fireman is trying to bring me too. I AM FLOATING ABOVE MY BODY, AND THAT IS WHY I CAN SEE WHAT IS GOING ON. I AM VERY PEACEFUL AND I KEEP TELLING THEM THAT I AM OK., BUT THEY CAN'T HEAR ME. THERE IS A WHITE LIGHT AND AS I TURN TO LOOK UPWARD, A MAN IS STANDING THERE HOLDING HIS HANDS OUT TO ME...I CAN SEE OTHERS BEHIND HIM, I FEEL VERY SAFE AND HAPPY. I KNOW IT IS WHERE I BELONG. I WANT TO GO ON WITH THEM...BUT I KNOW I HAVE A CHOICE...HE TELLS ME IN MY MIND THAT I CAN LEAVE WITH HIM OR STAY...I LOOK BACK AT MY MOM AND I CHOOSE TO STAY BECAUSE I KNOW SHE STILL NEEDS ME. AS I MAKE MY DECISION, HE SLOWLY DROPS HIS OUT STRETCHED HANDS AND I BEGIN FLOATING DOWNWARD. I KNOW IT IS THE RIGHT CHOICE. I COME AWAKE AND I AM VERY SICK. THE FIREMAN TOLD MY MOM THAT I ALMOST DIED BUT I WOULD BE OK NOW.
This mental imaged that I had has remained as clear as if it happened yesterday. I am now 51 and was only 5 years old when this occurred.
I have told a few people in my life time to give them hope and faith that there is more after we leave this world (die). I am not afraid of dying. This was a very spiritual experience for me. I did not understand then, but I know with all my heart that it is true. God or a supernatural being does exist. There is much for us to learn here on this earth. We must all try to do our best while we are here and learn, learn, and learn more. I believe that there is a lesson in every experience we have and that we must always strive to do better. But, most of all, we must learn to love and give love with all our hearts.
It helps me to know that their are others out there like me. I have always wanted to talk to other people but did not know how to start. Maybe, this is the beginning.
