I had had a very rough with having to have my wisdom teeth surgical removed because one had impacted and shattered. I took time off work to have the surgery and was recovering.
As soon as I got home from my surgery I started working on my truck, a 70s model full convertible Chevy Blazer. I had put in a new engine and was attempting to finish getting it to run.
The weekend led up on what began the events. The first day it was running I went out cruising in my truck to see just how well it would run on the road. The first night was uneventful after riding around for a while. The following night I decided to go out partying and halfway to the club I hit a road block and got nailed for no seat belt in use, no license, and no insurance on that particular vehicle.
The next day I was to meet my mom and aunt at the lake for a day of boating. Unfortunately I forgot to ask which lake and went to three different ones and never found them so I decided to drive back home. On my way home it began to rain, but when I hit the windshield wipers they didn't work. So here I was driving down the road head hanging out the window and no top on my truck. I was beyond soaked. I didn't need to go boating after all, I got all the water I needed from the rain.
After arriving back in town I stopped at McDonalds and got two plain cheeseburgers, something soft because I was still having difficulty eating with having all four wisdom teeth extracted four days prior.
I was heading along Hwy 70 toward my Grandmother's house, which is a very curvy road, when I dropped my head to take a bit of my burger. At that very moment I dropped off the shoulder of road. Instinctively, I let off the gas and slowly started back onto the road when I spotted a dark grassy area directly in front of my truck.
At that moment I slammed on the brakes hoping to miss the concrete culvert that ran beneath the road, but that led to the chain of events that led to my condition.
My feet were still wet and when I hit the brake my foot slipped off and hit the gas at the very moment of impact. The concrete directed my truck into the ditch and the rear tires lifted off the ground when the front end hit. At that moment all 400 horses under the hood started spinning the 35 inch off road tires and when they again impacted, it was more of a space shuttle launch than anything.
My truck went straight up into the air and immediately started flipping side over side. I was immediately rejected and run over by my truck. Over 2000 lbs slamming down on top of me at over 50 mph.
Luckily it was as if another entity was with me at that moment. Immediately after I hit the ground I jumped up and my truck was still flipping.
I realized when I raised from the ground that my arms were outstretched like a superman pose. Still dazed and stunned I immediately tried to stop a car for a ride to the hospital.
The driver advised me that he couldn't give me a ride because I was scaring his kids with all the blood on me. I responded that I didn't have any blood on me, and he advised me to look down.
Upon looking down I realized that I was standing in a pool of blood, yet I was walking, talking, and directing traffic, although I realized I could move my right arm at all.
Luckily for me a small child saw and the accident and told his dad and they called the ambulance. Another bit of luck was that I was just outside city limits, because I come from a small town and we didn't have 911 services and only one ambulance service for the whole county.
Upon the arrival of the paramedics, I felt I was completely lucid and asked them to please take me to the hospital.
I was advised by the paramedics that they would have to strap me to a back board.
Immediately, I responded with I didn't want too, so three paramedics grabbed me lay me down on the board.
As soon as my head hit the ground I felt a complete relief come over me. At that very moment I knew I was free.
I was awake, or so it seemed and everything about me was white and warm. The pain that I had no longer existed and I felt completely at peace. After what seemed like an eternity the paramedics brought me back and I begged them to let me go.
Please, I begged, let me go.
After that they would allow me to close my eyes and kept me talking.
At the local hospital, the doctor looked me over and advised the nurse and later, my wife, to sew me up and send me home.
I asked the doctor if I had a right arm because I could not feel it any longer.
The doctor brought out a safety pin and opened it up and started sticking to the bone all along my right arm. Not once did I flinch because I didn't feel the pin at all. In a stern and shaken voice he advised the staff to contact the trauma center 75 miles away that they were sending me.
En Route to the trauma center, the nurse, that later became my wife, road with me. Halfway to the trauma center, again I passed. Though this one not as the first. The light wasn't there, but the peace was all about me. I felt so calm and that my life was complete.
Immediately the nurse brought me back.
After three days and four hours of surgery to repair my arm, and over 365 stitches between my right leg and right arm, I wobbled out of the hospital. Diagnosis: Severed radial nerve in right arm, (was duly advised by the doctor that would never use my right arm again), fracture to C7 in my neck, and a large gash around my right calf, that had I broken the bone would have been a loss of my leg below the knee.
Since the accident, everything about me changed. I started sensing things that I never perceived I could sense. Just being near someone I could feel their love, hate, pain, anger, joy, their very being. Persons that have passed started appearing to me in my sleep.
Twelve years now have passed and still the perceptions are alive and very fluent. I have exactly predicted three deaths of persons that I knew, two to the exact time, with both asking me in my dreams to pass messages on to their loved ones. The first person I hadn't seen in over two years when it happened and wasn't even verified till two days later by the daughter of the woman who passed. Although I had shared with my wife and classmates at school the very morning after the dream.
Other occurrences have been with a recent job that required me to enter peoples homes. Within seconds of being inside their homes I could detect entities that didn't belong in the home.
One different occasions I would ask the customer's if they were aware their homes were haunted, and in disbelief they would turn and ask how I could know that, for I had been there for less than a few minutes and they had lived there all their lives.
Some of my visions in
my dreams have been very daunting and scary. Even now I have to leave on a
light and TV so I can sleep, which I get very little of. Nor can there be any
door in my home closed.

Did you meet or see any other beings? Yes At that moment, NO, but now I see people who have passed in my dreams, in my home, and feel their presence in others homes on several different occasions.
The few that I did know
asked me to pass on to their loved ones that they were ok. Some have stood in
my home as though they don't know where to go. If I tried to ignore them, I
wouldn't be able to rest and would have to turn on every light in the house and
open every door.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? No

Not at that moment but as time passed.
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience you did not have prior to the experience? Yes Ability to read people, sense beings that are no longer with us both peaceful and angered. Seeing dead people, talking to deceased persons and relaying messages to their families. On two occasions called the time of death and knew of a pending death of another without a specific date which passed this year, and was addressed while going through a divorce from my ex. I used argument that my ex's mom would soon pass and that she would have no place to live in regards to custody of our son.
Have you shared this experience with others? Yes Instant, minutes, hours. Being able to tell things about someone without them saying a word. When my ex wife's father died, she called me to tell me about it and I instead told her that he had passed at 430pm. It was not yet 5pm. When a friends mom, that I hadn't seen in over two years passed she spoke to me in my dreams and told me to tell her family that she no longer hurt, (she had terminal cancer that I was unaware of), I shared it with my classmates that morning and two days later my friend called me and confirmed the time and date coinciding with my dream.
Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience? Uncertain I had a near death as a child when I almost drowned. I was unconscious when they pulled me from the water but I was so young I don't remember much about it.
How did you view the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened: Experience was definitely real because still 12 years later I can still feel that feeling when I think about it. I still feel the calm, remember the words that were said when I came back and before I left
Were there one or several parts of the experience especially meaningful or significant to you? Before, I lived life one day at a time, care free and reckless. Afterward, I saw things in a different perspective,
Before, the only trouble I had was a few tickets, now I deal with stress, insomnia, headaches, nightmares, constantly fighting and defying authority. Meaning if I feel I was wronged or threatened in any way I returned the threat in a way more hurtful or as equal.
Examples: an ex beat the crap out of me yet when I pushed her off me with a cop as a witness I was arrested and charged.
When I took my wife to court for violating my visitation, the judge rendered a verdict before we even began the trial, I filed a judicial misconduct case against him and recused him from my case.I have become extremely resourceful. I use every means necessary to find answers and solutions whether it health, legal, or just information for a friend.
