I was riding a motorbike, without any helmet on. I halted at a Stop sign and a car hit me (from behind). It was going fast and threw me 12 to 15 meters. I flew over the car and fell hitting the ground with my head. Then I started to feel really cold, as if my skin had been ripped off. I began to float, and got really scared when I looked at my hands but they were not there, neither were my feet. As I was very cold I got even more scared and I looked down and saw my body on the ground on its side, with people saying that I had been killed. I heard and saw the people, also I recognized them as the accident was in my own street. So then I spoke to them from above, saying I was not dead, but they didn't hear me. Also I wasn't moving, my body did not move, though I was floating...
I tried to come back down to my body but I couldn't because something was pulling me upwards. The cold continued and a very intense and dazzling yellow light appeared, along with a strong wind, with a loud noise of wind. I started to enter this light-tunnel, but before going into it, I looked down and said (to the people there) that I was up above. I thought about my mother and my family before I entered the light and I could see a boy come running up and start to administer CPR to my body. I said to him I was up above already... but he went on doing it without pausing, and then I entered the light and the cold went away from me, and so did the fear. I felt a great peace and love, it was love and warmth, the light enveloped me completely and I was spoken to telepathically, receiving peace, love, tranquillity and at the same time voiceless communication... but I was still a bit sad thinking that I wanted to be with my family who loved me so much and were still on earth, back home waiting for me so we could eat together. Then suddenly the wind returned, the light went away and I began to cough, back in my body. I could not see but I felt my fingers and arms and knew that I had come back into it, thanks to the boy who resuscitated me. I opened my eyes but it was some minutes before I could see. I got up then and fell over again, feeling dizzy. On the ground I was conscious of everything, trembling with fear at having been outside my body, and I said, thinking of the light, Thank you for letting me come back to my family.
