Experience Description

I was driving after 2:00 in the morning and I hit a telephone pole. My car was totaled. When the fire department showed up, I was dead. I thought I was dreaming, because I could hear them talking. I heard one of the firemen say I was gone! I started floating. I could see the fireman trying to save me. I was all bloody. I was above my body watching everything! I started floating higher. I had never felt so peaceful! It is the best peace you could ever wish for! I was floating into some clouds. I saw my family and others I didn't know, but somehow I did know them. There was a bright light, and many people. Everybody was standing in the clouds and smiling. I felt peace. The place was so pretty and peaceful. I was floating into a light, but my father, who had passed away when I was fourteen years old, told me it wasn't my time yet, and he loved me, but for me to go back! The next thing I remember is that I woke up in the hospital. The firemen joked around with me all the time, calling me the walking dead! But things after that started to get strange. When I was little, I used to see things that no one else could see. For example, an old woman named Mrs. Rice passed away, but I kept seeing her. And I had dreams and sometimes they would come true.

But now I hardly sleep at night because, when I dream, most of my dreams come true! I had a dream about the hurricane that hit Louisiana last year. The only thing that was wrong was the name. I thought it was going to be Jose but it was the next one!

When I get around people, I can sense if they are going to pass away! Everybody likes me; spirits come to my home and visit with me all the time. I know things before they happen, because I dream about them ahead of time. What has been bothering me lately is that I am seeing the number fourteen and this is a constant thing! And I know it means something! There is a Heaven! That I do know!
