Jack NDE

Experience Description

My parents tell me I was two years old. I don't remember much. I just know I came out of my body and looked at myself and the next thing I knew, for whatever reason, my dad smacked me in the face. I could see him hit my face while still out of my body. I don't remember anything after that just waking up in the hospital bouncing off the wall full of energy. Well that's funny because my mom tells me that before the NDE I was not hyper at all. That's all I remember about that. I dream dreams and they come true.
