Sandi P Possible NDE

Experience Description

Two of my friend and I were smoking marijuana one night. We didn't really know the person we bought it off of but we figured it would be fine. Well I smoked most of it while my friends took like two hits each. We got back in the car. I was sitting in the passenger seat. After about ten minutes, my head started spinning and I felt like I was being forced into the car seat, almost like someone was pushing me into it. I've smoked pot many times before and I never felt like that. We stopped at a food store since my friends were hungry. I got in the backseat to lie down and passed out immediately. I remember my aunt, who had passed away, calling my name saying, 'come here baby girl.' I walked towards the voice down a long white hallway. I tried to turn around and all of a sudden, I was looking down on my body standing in a white room in a white dress. My body looked so flawless it was almost creepy. Everything was just so calm and quiet. The room I was standing in was like a never ending bright room with nothing in it. To me it felt like hours that I was just stuck watching myself stand there in the emptiness. My friends told me that my body was shaking, that I was making weird noises, and I was really cold. I never told them what I saw, but we found out later the pot was laced with angel dust.
