Robert D NDE
I was at a friend's barbeque with a few friends. I was eating when I must have inhaled a tiny speck of chip. I immediately realized it went down wrong and with what food still in my mouth I spit it out. however, it did not help I was still loosing air and it seemed the flap was beginning to close tighter. I had several people tried the Heimlich and hit spots on my back but nothing was happening. I felt panicked scared frightened as I saw everyone look on face as helpless. after about 2-3 min. I finally gave out and collapsed to my knees. At that point I realized it was useless to fight and was accepting what was to be.
At that very moment I was no longer present in the room with the people around me and with in seconds I felt this warmth, this no longer fear, the undiluted most perfect form of peace and I was now looking at my self in a embryo state over earth looking back but it was like I was looking at myself but at the same time I knew it was me. I can not tell you I was no longer afraid of the space the emptiness but rather it was the exact opposite, it was calm reassuring in a way and I was willing to stay there with no regards to any earthly reason to return. It is at that very moment when I thought and feel that, this powerful, serene, caring, authoritative loving male voice said to me " it is not your time, have someone hit you in the lower left area of your back"
Instantly, I was back in the room with everyone standing around me and I
motioned for someone to hit me in the area I was told. Someone did what I asked
and my breathing released but it was still laborious to get air in still
wheezing and whistling, it took about five minutes to regain breathing
