Near Death Experience
From: Anonymous Story type: NDE Location: Connecticut Source: Form Submission
This is very difficult because my NDE happened 30 years ago when I was 12 yrs. old. This experience, at the time, was very real; although over time, I chose to call it a "dream" until very recently when other "odd" experiences occured. But first, the "dream".
At 12 yrs. old one day, I felt ill and over the course of a few hours became more and more ill. My aunt, whom I lived with, took my temperature which read 105 degrees F. She sent me to bed. Shortly after closing my eyes,I was awakened by a "swooshing" feeling through a long dark tunnel going upward like in an elevator but so so much faster. I was frightened!
At the end of the "ride" I found myself at a place of extreme brightness and warmth. This place exuded such love that I knew I must remain there. Through the brightness I witnessed many (thousands!) of beings that knew and loved me, and I them. We communicated in love not words; in fact no names were known. (I can't explain this only that names were not used, not important, not a part of this place??????) I tried to focus on one individual and could not. When I tried to bring into focus a "person" I could only clearly see a hand or a foot but never the entire person. I strained to do so and was confused that I could not.
Suddenly a man (clear as a bell) appeared. I could see him fully. He was a big man with a beard and a mesmerizing smile. He looked like a lumberjack!! When I focused on one item on him; i.e., his teeth, for instance, were so bright they hurt my eyes!; his feet blazed like a golden fire! But the love that came from him to me was extrasensory.
This place was where I belonged "like a piece to a puzzle". They all told me in unison (not words) to look down. I did so and saw a line. They told me not to cross that line. I wanted to know why. They conveyed it wasn't my time yet. This made me grieviously sad. I felt their compassion through the love.
They told me my future; it contained two important things I needed to do before I could come back. I was crestfallen because these things I knew I could not do. Enveloped in their love, they showed me exactly how I would do them. I was jubilant and anxious to return and perform my tasks. They told me I would not remember them.
Suddenly and quite forcefully I was propell- ed down the "elevator" trying desperately to hold onto the information; but the further away from "the place" the more I felt it slipping away. The impact awakened me on my bed completely bathed in sweat.
Yes, I know their is a
God but I know he wasn't the lumberjact (he was a special angle
though). I know that we're all part of a "puzzle" and
that our bodies and even our names are not a part of this place.
These things are needed for here, on earth, to accomplish our
"tasks". The love in this place, though, is so hard to
describe, no words can touch it. I anxiously await the day I can
return--when its my time!!! Good luck, all of you, and God bless.
