It was the third day after I have my womb cut. It was during the
night. I was suffering a lot, it really hurting much and I was worrying so much
about my young kids at home. After a long long strangling (can't tell the time),
I started to feel my body was weighting very light, so light and finally
comfortable, and then not the same as most people said that their soul got out
from their head, I felt my soul (I don't know what word I can use for this) just
rising up from my body... horizontally or from the belly... something like that.
Then, it's just like most people's feeling, so peaceful, so grateful and my body
or my soul has no weight at all. I was in the middle of no where, I could see
all around me in the same time...360?
The whole room was
lighten by a kind of light bright but not hurting, there was no corner, no
shadow, the light seems to be peace, happiness and so on. Then I saw or I felt
because I can't tell if I saw with my eyes or with my soul, I heard with my ears
or with my soul, the nurse who took care of me came in for the daily check, she
talked to me, I thought I answer but she seemed not to hear, after the daily
check, she then ran to fetch the nurse chief of the night, and then the doctor,
they worried a lot though I tried to tell them I was fine, I never had been so
fine... It seemed no one hear, they gave me medication, can't tell how long
after, all a sudden I felt my soul fall down heavily into my body and all the
suffering came back in the same time. It was so strange, in the same moment the
nurse complain that I frightened them and so on. I couldn't say a word, I was so
confused. I never heard about NDE at that time.
Unluckily on the next day, no nurse, no doctor were willing to answer my
questions. It took time for me to make my husband understand it was not a dream
nor because of the medication. It was almost 20 years ago. I remember it as if
it's yesterday. And my life change a lot ever since then, I think my person
changed. I am a believer but can't tell what religion and I don't think it's
necessary to have one.
