It was irreversible fear; I knew something was wrong right away. My heart felt as if it was beating out of my chest, so fast words could not describe. I was gasping for breath, being only 22 years of age and having no religious faith I was slowly beginning to question my survival.
I was able to remain conscious till the ambulance arrived. When they hooked me up to the heart monitor I was running at about 160 bpm’s per min, I was rushed to the hospital. Upon arrival I was taken into the emergency cardiac section. Doctor’s and paramedic’s continued to try and get my attention, they were asking me what my pain levels were.
I had no chest pain; just a raising now 180 bpm irregular heart beat. I blacked out, I saw my self-hovering over my self and the room. I could see the intervenes and things in the room, but the people were very hard for me to see. I shot off very fast leaving everything behind. There was no sound only images. For several min I hovered over this large what seemed to be black pyramid object, I then shot off faster then before. I was moving through what seemed to be space. Planet’s and stars seemed very close to me still there was no sound. I felt complete peace and felt as if I was on my way to some place special.
Faster then I left, I was back, I opened my eyes. About six people were standing around me. One woman smiled at me and said “We thought we were going to loose you”. My return back into my body was more of a forceful entry not anything gentle. After my experience I started to question a lot about life. I turned my attention to meditation and spiritual work, I was seeing and hearing thing’s I could not explain. I know what they are now so I pay close attention. I do healing work; I’m one of those who came back with some strange abilities (Seeing auras and such). :) Or at least what some people would call strange.
I am very intuitive and I never was before, I am very close to my spiritual side, and even if it’s not god directly I do believe In universal energy and I truly feel that is what I was returning to. Good luck to all who have truly shared in this experience. The final stage of my journey was the most wonderful before I returned. Where there was once a fear of death there is only peace. None of us can escape it; just know it is not the end. This body is just the first stage in many transitions before us.

I was able to see space, large planets seemed very close and large almost close enough to touch. it was a very wonderful experience despite what ever my body was going through.
Did you have any sense of altered space or time? Yes I was moving so fast and knew that I was yet thing's about me seemed large and to pass by very slowly.
