Frank P's NDE
ON SUNDAY EVENING AROUND 8:30 PM AND AFTER MY PARENTS LEFT I COLLAPSED IN MY BED. THE FEVER HIT ME LIKE A BRICK. A PERSON VISITING THE MAN NEXT TO ME ASKED ME IF I WERE OK AND I SAID "YES". THEN I PASSED OUT.
ALL I REMEMBER FOR THE LONGEST TIME WAS A BLACK VOID. I HEARD NOTHING, SAW NOTHING AND FELT NOTHING. THEN I WAS IN A TUNNEL MADE OF STONE. THE TUNNEL WAS LIT BUT I COULD NOT SEE ANY END TO IT. I WAS STATIONERY IN THE TUNNEL BUT I WAS NOT TOUCHING THE TUNNEL. THE FOLLOWING THINGS HAPPENED TO ME AS SOON AS I WAS IN THE TUNNEL. I COULD SEE, I HAD NO PAIN WHATSOEVER (WITH A TEMP OF 106/107 YOU ARE IN PAIN) AND THE GREATEST FEELING OF PEACE AND CONTENTMENT CAME OVER ME. THIS FEELING IS VERY DIFFICULT TO EXPLAIN. THERE ARE NO ADJECTIVES TO ADEQUATELY DEFINE THIS UNFORGETTABLE FEELING. IT WAS ALL ENCOMPASSING. NOTHING IN THIS WORLD IS LIKE IT!! JUST AS THIS FEELING CAME OVER ME, I STARTED TO MOVE AND REALIZED THAT THIS TUNNEL HAD AN END.
AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL WAS THE BRIGHTEST WHITE LIGHT THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN!! WHEN YOU LOOKED AT IT, THE LIGHT DID NOT HURT YOU LIKE OUR SUN WOULD. I KNEW THAT WHEN I TOUCHED THAT LIGHT THAT I WAS GOING TO DIE. THE LIGHT WAS GOD. I WAS NOT AFRAID OF GOING THERE. THEN AS I WAS MOVING TOWARDS THE LIGHT I REALIZED THAT I WOULD BE LEAVING MY MOTHER AND SISTER WITH MY ALCOHOLIC FATHER. I WAS NOT GOING TO GO. I WAS GOING TO PROTECT MY MOTHER AND MY SISTER. THE HARDER I FOUGHT NOT TO GO THE FASTER I WAS MOVING. I FOUGHT NOT TO GO WITH EVERY OUNCE OF STRENGTH IN MY BEING!!! AS I TOUCHED THE LIGHT----I WAS BACK IN THE HOSPITAL BED.
GRIPING THE SIDES OF THE BED WITH MY HANDS. THE FEVER HAD GONE AND THE SWELLING
IN MY TESTICLE HAD GONE AND I WAS IN A POOL OF SWEAT. I WAS NOT IN MY BODY WHEN
I WAS IN THAT TUNNEL. I HAD A FORM BUT IT STILL IS NOT CLEAR TO ME WHAT KIND OF
FORM THAT I HAD. THE DOCTORS COULD NOT EXPLAIN WHY THE FEVER AND SWELLING WENT
AWAY. ALL THE MEDS THAT THEY GAVE ME FROM THURSDAY THRU SUNDAY DID NOT BREAK
THE FEVER. I WAS TOLD AND I HAVE READ THAT IF A PERSON HAS A PROLONGED HIGH
TEMP AS I DID THAT I SHOULD HAVE BRAIN DAMAGE. THE LORD LET ME LIVE TO PROTECT
MY MOTHER AND MY SISTER. HE ALSO LET ME LIVE TO BECOME A TEACHER. I WENT TO
COLLEGE TO BECOME AN ACCOUNTANT NOT A TEACHER. BUT HE GUIDED ME TO TEACHING.
WHEN I WAS FIFTEEN, I HAD A CALLING TO BECOME A PRIEST AND I TURNED THE LORD
DOWN. HE LED ME TO TEACHING. THIS NDE OF MINE CAUSED ME NEVER TO FEAR DEATH.
AFTER WE LEAVE THIS WORLD THERE IS NO PAIN OF ANY KIND. I WILL NEVER FORGET
THAT FEELING OF PEACE AND CONTENTMENT!!!! I WAS ALSO LEFT WITH THE
UNDERSTANDING FROM THIS NDE THAT MONEY AND MATERIAL THINGS DO NOT MATTER.

I SAW MY TEMPERATURE CHARTS.

I USED IT AS A "HOOK" TO GET THEM TO READ MORE. READ ANYTHING TO BECOME MORE AWARE! I DID NOT TALK ABOUT IT FOR 17 YEARS.

How did you view the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened: Experience was definitely real I WAS NOT IN MY BODY BECAUSE I DID NOT HAVE ANY PAIN OF ANY KIND. THE LIGHT AND THE UNBELIEVABLE FEELING OF PEACE WAS THE MOST REAL THINGS THAT I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED.
Were there one or several parts of the experience especially meaningful or significant to you? NOT TO FEAR DEATH, GOD DOES EXISTS. I ALWAYS BELIEVED IN GOD BEFORE THE NDE BUT THE NDE CONFIRMED IT.
