Experience Description

On Aug 2. I was traveling west bound sixty miles per hour on my motorbike and ran into an uninsured/drunk motorist in a car traveling east crossed over and ran right into me head-on, I folded up over the hood and my legs detached at my femur and feet wanted to follow the bike under the car. Somehow, I pulled loose and ended up spinning around in the gravel it was awful. When the ambulance came, I thought it was good time to pass out! I knew I was going to die and I was ready! Then I woke up surprised and upset, I was in hospital, then people, nurses and assorted staff where sticking tubes down my throat, sticking needles, probing and poking and I thought this is the best time to leave! I checked out plain and simple, I was so happy to leave the pain of the world behind me! I flew through the walls and ceiling and left the building. Yes, there was a light, a tunnel to aim for, but the ride was in auto-pilot. Now here's where things get real interesting. The Gates of Heaven! I found myself looking in but could not get in! I started to knock, knock on the gates to Heaven. The sights where out of this world, people playing having a great time. The sight and sounds greater than anything we know musical notes and sounds just greater than works can explain. The visual effect was endless amount of bright colors (using color to try to paint the color). Again, words are too simple! As I became accustomed to the sights and sound, I was delighted I was in the right place, yet the gates would not open! Then what seemed like forever, might have been just a second-time did not exist or was slowed down-all I wanted was IN! Yet here I was banging on what seemed like golden gates, as a graceful, faceless spiritual being taller than myself. He/she(?) told me 'I am not ready! Have to make the planet a beautiful place!' 'Of course I argued with that being, even explaining what can I do with a twisted body yet they communicated the same over, 'it's not my time to join them’ Then I was given a big PUSH! I always think of Christmas Store when Santa pushes Ralph down the slide.

It SEEMED like forever as I floated above the multi-story building hospital, I was in some control. I knew I was heading back to my body yet defied entering. As I closed in on the room containing my shell of a body. I could see the support Team of endless, countless people running back and forth, I hovered a little while then all of a sudden, I was back in my body, the pain, the hurt, emotions!
