As I was in the cat scan, I felt tightness in breathing. I began to gasp. I looked to my right through a window and saw the technicians in a room talking. It became very painful (the choking) then it did not hurt anymore. I looked down and saw my body convulsing. I saw people rush towards me. The next thing I saw, was a tube being shoved down a person's throat (I was above the person like on the ceiling or something) I remember thinking that looks like it really hurts! I heard the doctor's talking and I saw the paddles going towards the person. All of a sudden, I realized that the person was me. I was scared. The next thing I knew I was back in my body on the table, and felt a choking feeling due to the tube down my throat.

Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you? The best and worst is being left with this 'gift'. It is horrible to be able to see this and not to be able to help the people. I am tired of people thinking that I am 'strange' because I can do this. A lot of times I won't share what I see because of this.

Are there any other questions that we could ask to help you communicate your experience? Are there others that have the same gift as I do? Can they control it or ignore it? I would love to be able to turn it off sometimes. I would like to contact others that have had the same experience.
