Margaret J NDE
The light was green it was a blind intersection with buildings on the corners, I got in the intersection there was a car one foot from my door. I felt a little anger that I didn't have time to scream, and I thought I don't want to die, and all the people I was close to flashed through my mind, I reached my hand out to brace myself on the dash, and realized I might lose my arm that way so I pulled my hand back, the car hit my drivers door, and the car spun, the back end finally hitting a pole (bless it!) as I was about to bash into the far door (my boyfriend had talked me out of wearing my seatbelt a week before, told me it was going to get me killed) so I had flew to the safe side of the car. The car was still running...the noise of the wreck was so loud and violent, I heard the sound of silence, for the first time in my life. I thought to get out of the car and wanted very much to go to sleep but there was broken glass everywhere so I leaned against the building. A man came to me with a gash on his forehead and said are you all right...I said I guess so.
was then I realized someone was in the car that hit me, and I felt forgiveness
flow over me for this person. He went to call his mom and someone from their
car asked if I wanted them to call an ambulance, I said yes. The next thing I
knew I was jumping on the clouds, I thought this is great this is wonderful I
don't care about all those people I left behind...It was so very beautiful,
years later, as I got to fly on a plane, I saw the same beautiful look of those
clouds...next thing I knew I started feeling pain, and thought oh no I must be
alive! I was back in my body and the police were there and the ambulance and
about 80 people against the buildings watching the activity. I asked the man
next to me if he would please get my shoe from the green car, and he went and
got it. No one noticed me standing there with one shoe and cuts all over me I
guess, I am glad so I wasn't interrupted in the clouds.
