For some reason when I was age four, I decided to bite an electrical extension cord. What happened after that was totally awesome. The first thing I saw or noticed I was in a void are a huge bubble with black and orange jagged lines, I remember looking all around up, down, all around, and that's all I could see. From that I was yanked from the lines by like a umbilical cord into outer space that pulled me into a huge brain looking center, I would say heaven's emergency room. I remember lying in a room with two hospital beds. I remember a lady, how she looked like us with bigger black eyes. I remember right away she knew I wasn't supposed to be there (this was communicated to me without her saying a word I guess basically mental that I totally understood) and I was sent back in a flash.From that, I woke up and part of my lips were sown together which it still is today. For thirty-one years, this has been as fresh to me as the day it happened. I am sure what I saw was real because at the time I had no real knowledge of religion or any kind of outside influence like that. I don't know how you categorize these experiences but I'm just as sure today as thirty-one years ago that what I saw was real.

The whole experience seemed like it took a few hours was supposedly only like five minutes at the most.
Were your senses more vivid than usual? Incredibly more vivid
Please compare your vision during the experience to your everyday vision that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience. In a huge bubble that had orange and black squiggly lines everywhere up down all around so I guess depth and vision got way bigger than normal space. It would be like if you looked all around and a mile out in every direction was the lines and I was 'floating' in the middle I guess you could say.
Please compare your hearing during the experience to your everyday hearing that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience. I'm pretty sure right off the bat I heard some kind of high pitch nose but that is the only thing I don't remember for sure everything else I'm sure of.

Did you seem to enter some other, unearthly world? A clearly mystical or unearthly realm I think it was because leaving the jagged lines being pulled from it via embelical cord to a huge brain like ER is distinctive

God, Spiritual and Religion:
What was your religion prior to your experience? Moderate I'm spiritual probably because of this experience. Were others wonder about the afterlife i feel I know for sure and I am sure. And at that time I had never heard of God or death or anything like that
Have your religious practices changed since your experience? Yes I know that church is not the answer. Maybe it is I know that something extraordinary is the reason we're here and he isn't weird about being worshiped not that it is bad but I was feed this in I would say a radio signal of answer I wasn't asking being I know I had been there before.
What is your religion now? Conservative/fundamentalist I'm sure no matter what you belief everyone is going to a great place.
Did you have a change in your values and beliefs because of your experience? Yes I know that church is not the answer. Maybe it is I know that something extraordinary is the reason we're here and he isn't weird about being worshiped not that it is bad but I was feed this in I would say a radio signal of answer I wasn't asking being I know I had been there before.

Did you see deceased or religious spirits? I actually saw them
Concerning our Earthly lives other than Religion:
During your experience, did you gain special knowledge or information about your purpose? Uncertain I feel that the afterlife for sure is a great place and just another part of the ride. In fact I am more sure of that and you can ask any of my friends I have made listen to this story over and over and I'm sure they will tell you word for word what I told. They are tired of hearing this and I will stop telling but I real know that what I experienced was pure fact, and I'm not trying to convince anyone but I feel my experience can make anyone relax about the afterlife.
Have your relationships changed specifically because of your experience? No
After the NDE:
Was the experience difficult to express in words? Yes It has for 6-8 I could remember the umbilical cord but I could explain it and would have said a like vacuum hose, but know that wasn't what it was. The huge brain-like emergency room was like a sponge or coral. It took me a while to finally put my finger on exactly what it was. I am sure it is an umbilical cord to a brain.
Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience? Yes I don't know why I receive these downloads if you will but I think it's because I got zapped.
Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you? Well it felt like three parts.
Orange and black squiggly lines.
Umbilical cord ride from lines.
Pulled into the afterlife emergency room.
So I didn't get far because right away it wasn't my time I felt like that nurse knew me.
Have you ever shared this experience with others? Yes If you ask around here everyone can finish this story because I tell it, because I know. I'm really glad this happened it has consumed my life in ways but never bad.
Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience? No That's one good reason I'm so sure of what I saw. I truly never thought about death or afterlife or God or anything like that because I didn't know to think about it.
What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened? Experience was definitely real Well I think because I never thought or knew about death that my experience is as true and as purely what the afterlife transition is. The only thing I am dead sure of in life is that the first five minutes were great and it seemed like a while. I don't feel that the nurse's fast response was because I'm the golden child, I just think they had there shit together the only thing I can be sure in life so I feel for sure that after that something greater exists to look forward to, that's the impression I got.
What do you believe about the reality of your experience now? Experience was definitely real There are really few things I'm sure of. This is all fact for sure and for thirty-one years I've said it's all fact for sure to me so since four I've been lucky in knowing what happens in something I would have never thought to think to ask.
At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience? Yes The next day I lay in my bed for hours and was being sent repair data, if you will, radio signal? It was like data that was healing some fried wires if you will.
Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? Yes, you know I have never asked my cousin if she remembered it or if she can recall but I will for sure because I really don't care how it sounds when you really know for a FACT.
Are there any other questions that we could ask to help you communicate your experience? Try to categorize really well: age, what were thoughts about death prior to their experience and see if every couple of years seem to get mass data that's almost too hard to retain answer to everything.
