Boy this is something that I've wanted to post up since I've joined ATS but was always afraid to..
I'm still not sure what to make of this particular experience I've had but I can't help but wonder if something similair has happened to anyone
else here at ATS. so here it goes
On the 10th of Feb, 2001 it was my 21st birthday and my flatmate had shortly come home from a night out,
There was a knock at the front door, which several young men where hid behind, i was actually upstairs at the time. They kicked the door open as my
friend opened it, and as I heard the banged and shouting i heard my friend shout "I've been stabbed!, they stabbed me!"
I didn't stop to grab any of the weapons lying around and just ran out of the room, jumped over the banister in the hallway and landed standing in
the middle of the stairs, there was around 10 people in the hallway in front, two were holding knives with blood and bits of flesh on them. My friend
was in front of me holding his stomach it looked like he was pregnant, he had been disembowelled. I did the only thing I could do at the time which
was scream "get the f*** out of here before I etc, etc), they ran out quickly.
he had been cut from the groin about an inch from above his genitals to his solar plexus, though it appeared at the time to be a cut from waist to
Please excuse my Terminology but as I proceeded to push his guts and stomach and everthing back in i WAS going schizophrenic, I have never ever been
so scared in my life, there i was holding my mate together literally,
i had 1000's of voices and thoughts in my head at the same time, telling me to run and hide, telling me its all my fault, tellin me horrible things,
I honestly thought I was going insane I just couldn't think clearly.
All of this was happening in seconds that felt like hours,
and as I thought it could'nt get any worse as my friend began to lose consciousness, I felt something grab hold of my left shoulder and saw what
appeared to be a golden light/aura hanging over my left side, the voices and paranoia stopped, and a singular calm voice told me that I knew EXACTLY
what to do and not to worry I'm strong enough to deal with this,
suddenly I was unexplainably calm, I was not scared anymore infact I felt quite confident!, I could actually think clearly and proceeded to perform
emergency first aid, stop the bleeding, keep him warm and conscious and free from the affects of shock, until the ambulance came.
My friend had an emergency operation to repair his bowels from severage and multiple punture wounds,
The surgeons that operated on him ALL made it clear we were not to expect him to survive,
funnily enough he did, and he was also out of hospital in 5 days, and has had a full recovery.
It a pretty traumatic experience altogether,
all I know is if it wasn't for that little voice my mate would probably be dead.
In a conversation shortly after the incident my friend said as he was beginning to blackout he saw something hanging over my shoulder, he described it
as some sorta pure light, goldey yellowy colour.
I'm sure it was a womans voice, but it instilled something in me that stopped me from panicking,
whatever it actually was it gave of feelings of love, and peace, calmness... If this wasn't some sort of angel, then I don't know what is
