Experience Description

I am aware on the operating table very stressed they sedate me with mask and injection, I am anesthetized. Instead of having a blackout, I keep hearing voices, so the product has no effect. Then I hear the medics start to panic about my state, it is then that I realize I am dead. I am intimately convinced, what I hear that it is not my ears that hear. I am anesthetized, but it is 'me'. I start to move away from the agitation. I am not okay, no visual sensation, but have the impression of floating in the air. It is dark, I do not see. Something that I call the collective mind, in which all the good of humanity lives forever, shows me my life and makes me understand that I have not accomplished anything good, only egoism governs my life. Thereupon that spirit projects me into the future, fifteen or twenty years further, and shows me what the life of those around me is, due to me, yet without me. I am dead for twenty years and the moment that I live is from the now and not a vision of the future. Next, the spirit makes me understand that they are giving me a second chance and that I have to do good. They send me back telling me that I have to guide my son until he is grown up. My mission and to do good the spirit gives me the real meaning of the word doing good. Then I wake up, it takes some minutes on the operating table. I have not been operated on, I look up the time on the clock in the operation room, two hours have gone by then this time a fall asleep again and wake up having been operated on.
