I would like to share my out of body experience. I have always been interested in this topic. Some of the stories are so amazing and yet some don't
make any sense to the person reading about it. Ultimately, however, it makes sense to the person experiencing it. I am not looking for someone to
critique it or analize it, but seek to start a thread where others can post their own experience along side my own.
I had my experience almost 20 years ago. I was 28 years old, married, had two small children and was taking a computer class in the mornings.
And so my story goes:
While in the middle of class, I started to feel a huge weight on my chest (like an elephant was sitting on top of me). All the sudden, the room
started to turn a misty, colorless, grey and total confusion was starting to set in, making my brain feel very 'fuzzy'. I got up and left the
classroom (not smart) and went into the girl's bathroom and stretched out upon the floor. Not knowing what to do, I was feeling completely 'out of it,
but knew I definitely needed help. Finally, a young girl came in and helped me to the office, where I collasped in front of the secretary's desk.
What I did not know at the time was that my heart had stopped. Nevertheless, I could hear different discussions going on around me at the same time
and understood what was being said. It was as if my understanding, as well as my hearing had somehow become 'supersonic'.
When the paramedics arrived. I could hear everything they and the police were saying: "She doesn't have a pulse"; "Her heart has stopped"; "Start an
IV line"; "She is too young to have heart failure"; "Is her husband here yet?".
Thats when I knew that I was dying... or had died. I certainly didn't feel dead and, in fact, I felt more alive than I had ever felt in my life. My
senses felt as if they had truely just awakened and my body felt completely weightless. Please keep in mind that, at this point, I was completely
unconscious and had no vitals.
I then hear my husband's voice asking: "Where is my wife?; "Is she ok?"; "... I just followed all these police and EMS vehicles to the school".
Meanwhile, I am watching and listening to all of this as it transpires. Next, I see my husband and daughter standing to the left of me as I am laying
on the floor, with the paramedics still working on getting my heart going. Did I feel anything?...No; Nothing. I was in a state of total peace at this
time...with absolutely no fear whatsoever. It all felt as if I was simply an observer to all that was going on around my lifeless body.
The most amazing part of this entire experience to me..is what happens with my daughter. I see my daughter's face filled with fear (she just turned
5yrs old) and I sit up to hold her and offer her comfort. Only the thing was, that my body wasn't actually, physically, sitting upright. My spirit, on
the other hand, actually was. I held out my arms to her and tell her: "Mommy is going to be ok and I will be home in 3 days". From her, I was rewarded
with the biggest smile ever!
That's all that I remember in the school. My next memory is of being in the ambulance with the paramedics giving me Nitro tablets. In the end, I DID
stay 3 days in the hospital and was subjected to many tests while there. The cardiologist told me that I had experienced a massive heart attack and
that he was baffled as to why I had no heart damage. I believe that it was by the Grace of God that I did not.
It wasn't until years later that my daughter spoke of this experience to me. She thanked me for sitting up and comforting her with my words. I asked
my husband about this and he said that he was there the whole time with her and that I never sat up until I got to the hospital and that I had only
actually been revived in the ambulance on the way. To this day, my daughter will not accept that I was ever unconscious, because she swears she saw
her mom sitting up and offering her comforting words. God is Good!
THATS MY STORY..DO YOU HAVE ONE TO SHARE?
