Experience Description 6936

I have had three near death experiences in my life.

The first one when I was born. I wasn't expected to live for more than two weeks. I was a blue baby. My lungs weren't developed fully.

The second one happened when I was around six or seven. I was very sick and was pulled out of my body for a short period of time so that the body could be adjusted.

The Third happened when I was twenty five back in 1985.

That one was different. I unconsciously talked Dale, my work partner into not going down into a 12 ft. trench. Normally we would trade off. One stayed above ground and the other went below ground. Not today.

I was a water well tech up north in the cold country. Our job was to set the pump down the well after the drilling team was done running the waterline and AC down a trench and into the buildings to bring forth water. It was a dangerous job but we didn't think about that too much. I had been on the job for about a year and a half when it happened.

A month before it happened I started to have these weird dreams. It was like rehearsing for a play. I never felt or had any fear about it. They were about what I needed to do in a cave in. It went on for a week until I said 'enough.' Then they stopped. I never saw how it would end. And over time, I forgot about it.

Then the day came. It started out like any other day except Dale was in an uneasy frame of mind. Something clearly was bothering him .I had thought that maybe it was something I said. He just wasn't himself that day. So then we went out to the country to do this deep well commercial project. Well was 1800 ft. deep and the trench was deeper than normal. 12 ft. instead of 8 ft. deep and less than 3 ft. wide. And I stand at 6 ft.

Dale was really agitated at this point and short with me. We looked the job over and got to work. As I was gathering up the tools and hardware, Dale grabbed the hip waders due to the amount of water and slush from the snow melting down in the bottom of the trench. Was going to be a messy job. I had all the intention of going down in my mind but when I saw him putting on the waders, I told him I would go down. That started and slightly heated argument between us. I could have easier let him go down and I would have gone over the well head and worked above ground. It did cross my mind for a moment. But for some reason I had in my head that I was to go down into the trench. After about fifteen minutes of arguing with him, he finally threw them off and said 'Fine!' I felt pleased about it.

I met him over at the well head and we made the connection between the well head and the waterline. After that he started doing what he needed to do and I started walking the soft copper wire down the trench. I had probably had gotten twenty to thirty feet away from the well head hunched over when I looked up and saw the side wall starting to peel away.

This is where the dream kicked in. I let the copper go, stood straight up against the opposite wall, crossed my arms over my chest, then I yelled 'Dale!' and took a deep breath. I then closed my eyes.

Later Dale would tell me that he heard me and yelled back 'What?!' He looked up and saw that I was gone. About a dump truck's worth of heavy wet shale came down on me.

As I was being crushed to death, I remember asking myself if I was going to die. An answer came back saying 'yes.' Then I said I didn't want to die. The voice said ô you're going too. I felt myself slowly losing the battle as I tried to find an alternative to the situation I was in. And at one point, the pain was so strong that I screamed out my last breath into the darkness that had covered me. I was done. All hope was lost. I gave up the fight.

At this point, I must have popped out of my body and into the darkness that was around me but still next to my body. There was no pain at this point. I remember it being so dark and so lonely. Absolute void.

I wondered if this was how the end played out and I would just fade away into nothing or if there was something more beyond this state I was in. I screamed in my head out into the pitch blackness that had engulfed me 'Well then! When?' Then an arm came around my hunched over body and pulled me out. Except now, we were moving up and I was no longer in my body feeling lighter and free. I thought about my family and then I heard 'They will be fine.' Fine, I thought.

As we were moving, I remember seeing parts of my life but I didn't care about those things. I knew my life and just acknowledge it as happening. I had no clue to what was happening to me or where I was going.

We stopped so I could listen to how the universe sounded as it expanded. Like a deep hum all around me. Everything was so alive all around me and I felt I was part of everything and everything was a part of me. We were one. I now understood how we were all connected to each other. All this knowledge was opening up in me. So beautiful. So endless. Sounds I have never heard before. Colors so intense and new, unlike anything I have ever seen.

I remember seeing myself as this transparent being of pure light. And when we communicated our whole being would flash different colors depending on our response. I realized then there was nothing I could hide from anyone.

So much love. Pure divine love around everything everywhere. I was totally engulfed in it. I saw things I can't even begin to describe. The awe factor was way off the charts.

I saw a handsome young man who later was identified as my grandfather. I was shown a beautiful city that glowed a golden like aura. I felt like I was truly home again. This was very familiar to me.

Then I was taken even higher. In a flash, I was on a floor in a vast room. There were these vast steps in front of me and my eyes slowly followed them up until I saw what was above me. I immediately hit the floor face down saying 'I am not worthy to be here. I should not be here' over and over again.

I was before the Holy Trinity. I couldn't look at it. It was so blindingly bright. In a flash, the Christ told me to stand up and I did. He then pulled me into himself and I was gone.

When I came to, I was being cradled in this huge energy like ball that felt endless and was truly feminine in nature. Like the best-est mom in all the universe. I knew that it was the Holy Spirit. The female aspect of the G-D. The Mother of the Universe. She assured me and rocked me to sleep.

I was then placed back into my body. When I opened my eyes, I saw and felt the sunshine on me. I was still in that wonderful connection. The sky was an intense blue and the clouds so white and beautiful. Then I turned my heard and saw Dale crying and digging me out by hand. He had dug not straight down but from the inside of the trench. Inward. I was in a fetus position. I told him that I was fine and that everything was so wonderful. But I couldn't hear him and he wasn't hearing me. I being to wonder what the problem was and realized I was breathing. I was trying to talk to him in thought form and it wasn't working. I then tried to remember the sensation of what it was like to breath.

I started to panic. 'In/out' I thought over and over again until it happened. When I took that first breath, I was then seated in my body and this extreme pain hit me like a train. I could feel my organs dying and what felt like ribs through my lungs and internal bleeding etc. I took one arm and wrapped it around my upper chest in hopes to try to keep things in place. Dale and someone else just stared at me in shock. Wide eyed they were. Speechless. I said get me the hell out of here. Nothing. So I mustered up enough strength to pull myself out and climbed up out of the trench with them screaming and me not to move.

I was so happy to be up and out. I did a quick inventory of myself and lit up a cigarette. I figured if I was going to die again, I was going to have that last smoke. (I did quit eventually)

My insides were pushed up like a tube of toothpaste. My neck now has a reverse of the cervical spine with a compound fracture at C6. All the ligaments down my back were heavily damaged.

I had choice here. Even though I was taught what to do. I had choice. I gave up my life so that another could live. The greatest gift a person could ever give to another. That gets you to the front of the line with a clean slate. That is why I went before the Holy Trinity.

I still have that connection and sometime go back in meditation. The Kingdom of Heaven is truly within each and every one of us. And we can tap into this any time we need to. I continue to grow closer to the spirit within me each day. Learning and experiencing wonderful things.

At first I thought if anyone understood what I just went through, it would be the church. Not. I now realize what the church can teach and what it cannot teach. There are two paths. And this kind of experience drops you right on that less traveled one. It is a lonely path. You go with what you know.

What I did in the beginning of my journey was to test the 'seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.' It does work. There are many paths to God. Pick one and go with it. And on the way don't forget to do those random acts of kindness. If 1/5 of the world awoke and did this, the whole planet would shift.

What life changes occurred in your life after your experience? Large changes in my life Finding some sort of support with this was impossible. Telling folks about it scared them away. Finding that churches don't even believe or know what to do with you was sad. Family thinking you were nuts didn't help. After a while, I learned to keep my mouth shut and hope it just goes away. But it never does. It is always there. Tugging at you.

We see things that we forgot or things that are much clearly then they were in the past or last time we wrote them out. It is also important not to get stuck in the experience.

Gift of clarity and vision.

Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you? The Kingdom of Heaven is within. So is the Holy Trinity. The doorway is through our heart. The Sacred Heart.

Have you ever shared this experience with others? Yes Finding some sort of support with this was impossible. Telling folks about it scared them away. Finding that churches don't even believe or know what to do with you was sad. Family thinking you were nuts didn't help. After a while, I learned to keep my mouth shut and hope it just goes away. But it never does. It is always there. Tugging at you. It took eight long years before the universe sent someone to be in my life that had equal to better understanding of all things with her NDE that finally helped me to fully awaken. It has been much better after I turned fifty. I am on in with this. I can see how shallow most people are and will challenge them with this to seek out their own truth.

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience? Yes I had two as a child and had read in my younger youth in Reader Digest about a logger who had one. I thought it odd but it did plant a seed in me. I never forgot it.

What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened? Experience was probably real I sort of remembered it then it went away and I forgot about it for about two years. Then my head opened up and rattled my reality all over the place. First marriage dissolved shortly after that. Was too much for her.

What do you believe about the reality of your experience now? Experience was definitely real Was great to fully know and understand that there was more to life than this.

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience? Yes Sort of..... Went to a spiritual retreat for three days. On the last day, the Holy Spirit was invoked. I was and also experienced the Holy Spirit piercing folks with rays of light. I watch people crash to their knees in tears as well as myself. They called it "Mountain Top" experience.

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? Maybe in 5-10 years



Experience Description 3616

I have had three near death experiences in my life.

The first one when I was born. I wasn't expected to live for more than two weeks. I was a blue baby, as lungs weren't developed fully).

The second one happened when I was around six or seven. I was very sick and was pulled out of my body for a short period of time so that the body could be adjusted.

The third happened back in 1985, when I was twenty five years old. This one was different. I subconsciously talked Dale, my work partner, into not going down into a 12 ft. trench. Normally we would trade off, one stayed above ground and the other went below ground, but not today.

I was a Water Well Technician up north in the cold country. My job was to set the pump down the well after the drilling team was done, and run the waterline and AC down a trench and into the buildings to bring forth water. It was a dangerous job but we didn't think about that too much. I had been on the job for about a year and a half when it happened.

A month before it happened I started to have these weird dreams. It was like rehearsing for a play. I never felt or had any fear about it. They were about what I needed to do in a cave in. It went on for a week until I said 'enough', then they stopped. I never saw how it would end and over time, I forgot about it.

Then the day came. It started out like any other day, except Dale was in an uneasy frame of mind. Something clearly was bothering him and I thought that maybe it was something I had said. He just wasn't himself that day. We went out to the country to do this deep well commercial project. The well was 1,800 ft. deep and the trench was deeper than normal - 12 ft. instead of 8 ft. deep, and less than 3 ft. wide. I stand at 6 ft. Dale was really agitated at this point, and short with me. We looked the job over and got to work. As I was gathering up the tools and hardware, Dale grabbed the hip waders, due to the amount of water and slush from the snow melting down in the bottom of the trench. It was going to be a messy job. I had all the intention of going down in my mind, and when I saw him putting on the wader I told him so. That started and slightly heated argument between us. I could have easily let him go down and I would have gone over the well head and worked above ground.

I felt myself slowly losing the battle as I tried to find an alternative to the situation I was in.

It was an absolute void. I wondered if this was how the end played out and I would just fade away into nothing, or if there was something more beyond this state, I was in. I screamed in my head out into the pitch blackness that had engulfed me 'Well then! When!' Then an arm came around my hunched over body and pulled me out. Except now, we were moving up and I was no longer in my body, feeling lighter and free. I thought about my family and then I heard 'They will be fine'. 'Fine', I thought.

I was shown a beautiful city that glowed a golden like aura. I felt like I was truly home again. This was very familiar to me.

I was then taken even higher in a flash, and placed on a floor in a vast like room. There were vast steps in front of me and my eyes slowly followed them up until I saw what was above me. I immediately hit the floor face down saying 'I am not worthy to be here. I should not be here' repeatedly. I was before the Holy Trinity. I couldn't look at it. It was so blindingly bright. In a flash, the Christ told me to stand up and I did. He then pulled me into himself and I was gone. When I came to, I was being cradled in this huge energy like ball that felt endless and was truly feminine in nature. Like the best mom in all the universe. I knew that it was the Holy Spirit. The female aspect of the G-D. The Mother of the Universe. She assured me and rocked me to sleep.

I was then placed back into my body. When I opened my eyes, I saw and felt the sunshine on me. I was still in that wonderful connection. The sky was an intense blue and the clouds so white and beautiful. I turned my heard and saw Dale crying and digging me out by hand. He had dug not straight down but from the inside of the trench. Inward. I was in a fetus position. I told him that I was fine and that everything was so wonderful, but I couldn't hear him and he wasn't hearing me.

When I took that first breath, I was then seated in my body and extreme pain hit me like a train. I could feel my organs dying, what felt like ribs through my lungs and internal bleeding etc. I took one arm and wrapped it around my upper chest in the hope of trying to keep things in place. Dale and someone else just stared at me in shock. They were wide eyed and speechless. I said 'get me the hell out of here'. Nothing. So I mustered up enough strength to pull myself out and climbed up out of the trench with them screaming at me not to move.

I was so happy to be up and out. I did a quick inventory of myself and lit up a cigarette, figuring that if I was going to die again I was going to have that last smoke (I did quit eventually). My insides were pushed up like a tube of toothpaste. My neck now has a reverse of the cervical spine with a compound fracture at C6. All the ligaments down my back were heavily damaged.

I had choice here. Even though I was taught what to do, I had choice. I gave up my life so that another could live- the greatest gift a person could ever give to another. That gets you to the front of the line with a clean slate. That is why I went before the Holy Trinity.

I still have that connection and sometime go back in meditation. The Kingdom of Heaven is truly within each and every one of us, and we can tap into this any time we need to. I continue to grow closer to the spirit within me each day, learning and experiencing wonderful things.

At first I thought if anyone understood what I just went through, it would be the Church. Not. I now realize what the Church can teach and what it cannot teach. There are two paths, and this kind of experience drops you right on that less traveled one. It is a lonely path, one on which you go with what you know. What I did in the beginning of my journey was to test the saying 'seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you'. It does work. There are many paths to God. Pick one and go with it, and on the way don't forget to do those random acts of kindness. If 1/5 of the world awoke and did this the whole planet would shift.

God, Spiritual and Religion:


What was your religion prior to your experience? Liberal None

Have your religious practices changed since your experience? Yes It had too. It is a part of me. Not the organized religion - they don't get it. The one that is in my heart and all around me. The Truth!! It is time to wake the people of this planet up - talk about the living dead!

What is your religion now? Liberal Christian/Episcopal

Did you have a change in your values and beliefs because of your experience? Yes It had too. It is a part of me. Not the organized religion - they don't get it. The one that is in my heart and all around me. The Truth!! It is time to wake the people of this planet up - talk about the living dead!

The experience included: Presence of unearthly beings

Did you seem to encounter a mystical being or presence, or hear an unidentifiable voice? I encountered a definite being, or a voice clearly of mystical or unearthly origin

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? Yes I understood everything about the universe - everything about everything.

Have your relationships changed specifically because of your experience? Yes My first wife left. My second wife was God sent. She too is an NDEr.

After the NDE:


Was the experience difficult to express in words? Yes At first it was - not so much anymore and even better now.

Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience? Yes Gifts of healing. Gift of being able to bring forward in me the Holy Spirit to the point that others experienced it as well. Gift of wisdom and knowledge, which is still on going. Gift of courage and strength. Gift of clarity and vision.

Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you? The Kingdom of Heaven is within. So is the Holy Trinity. The doorway is through our heart. The Sacred Heart.

Have you ever shared this experience with others? Yes I had large changes in my life. Finding some sort of support with this was impossible. Telling folks about it scared them away. Finding that churches don't even believe or know what to do with you was sad. Family thinking you were nuts didn't help. After a while, you learn to keep your mouth shut and hope it just goes away, but it never does - it is always there, tugging at you. It took eight long years before the universe sent someone to be in my life that had equal to better understanding of all things with her NDE that finally helped me to fully awaken. It became much better after I turned fifty. I can see how shallow most people are and will challenge them with this to seek out their own truth.

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience? Yes I had two as a child and had read in my younger youth in Reader Digest about a logger who had one. I thought it odd but it did plant a seed in me. I never forgot it.

What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened? Experience was probably real I sort of remembered it then it went away and I forgot about it for about two years. My head then opened up and rattled my reality all over the place. My first marriage dissolved shortly after that. It was too much for her.

What do you believe about the reality of your experience now? Experience was definitely real Was great to fully know and understand that there was more to life than this.

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience? Yes Sort of. I went to a spiritual retreat for three days. On the last day, the Holy Spirit was invoked. I was, and also experienced the Holy Spirit piercing folks with rays of light. I watched people crash to their knees in tears as well as myself. They called it 'Mountain Top' experience.

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? Maybe in 5-10 years.
