Shante H NDE

Experience Description

I was a child riding my bike and was hit by a car. At the time just before I was hit, the vision unfolded before me. When the car hit me, I was lifted off the bike. The spot where my foot would have been was where the bike was crushed. I was tossed over 13 feet, landing on my shoulder and head.

I was seeing shadows raising me and around me. I was feeling a deep sense of love and compassion. The beings were very vivid and were calming me. Then I came back to this realm. But the vision has stayed in me. Every time I have been back to that area, something happens: like that was my time.
