Padraic R's NDE
I poised myself sitting upright against the wall near the glass pane I had just broken, I rested my right arm in my lap and each time I took a breath my arm would gurgle. I figured if the ambulance was called at the time I broke the glass they were over 15 minutes away from me, when I knew I had about 8 minutes left.
I thought to clamp the wound but a voice in my head said "lie still, your fine!"
I tried to keep track of my breathing which I lost count, I could no longer keep my head up or my eyes open I fell into a gentle sleep, this was when I was aware that I was dying. I was not frightened by this thought. I had no direct fear of the death awaiting me, I embraced it with warmth and recognition.
I knew that I was still conscious but I didn't know how, I could think in 5 different directions at once, the expansion of my experience was greater than I've ever experienced in life, death became a new experience to me, this was an experience I wanted, I could talk to trees and ants on the ground, I experienced a "life tone" of the earth that I felt on one level.
I stood in a field by a river by a bridge and a man walked past me that I tried to get his attention, he walked about 10 feet away from me, it was daytime although I knew it was night in the building I was just in.
I said earlier that I knew that I was but I didn't know just what I was, I could see and hear and feel and experience, experiences came to me with lightening speed and clarity. As my consciousness expanded I moved physically, at one moment I was above the earth and began to forget my family, my own name, that I had a finger on my hand. I passed through 4 dimensions about as thick as a piece of paper.
As I moved away from the earth I could feel "life tones" of space and of other planets, I then came in contact with a "life force" not as advanced as our own, they expressed the emotion "love" to me both individually and collectively. I hope to return to them after my second death.
As I moved on, I met a friend, dark haired, he was a friend who glowed yellow light from himself, as I tried to approach me he stopped me, I was frozen in space now and in conscious experience. He said to me "As you believed in me, I shall believe in you and thou shalt not die." This I didn't understand because I was more alive than I've ever been in 33 years.
Next, a cop was
kneeling over me telling me that I can't go to sleep that I have to stay awake
and keep talking, the paramedics were about to hoist me to the gurney, for the
next year I had mini death experiences that would come into my life at odd
times. kind of like going blank for the moment.
