I was nine yrs. old and died at a family party at my house. I swallowed at long lollypop spaceship. I started choking and I was scared and could not breathe, I closed the door to my room, because I didn't want to get in trouble. I was alone. I know I saw darkness and felt very calm and quiet then I could see myself lying in the corner, curled up. I saw my cousin open my door and come to me and he is talking to me while I am looking down from ceiling. Then he touched me, pushes on me, and screams. He runs out of room and my uncle and father come in, grab me, and start to shake me. He was yelling and carrying me out to living room. I could see my grandmothers crying and screaming on sofa. It is panic, put I am so calm and at peace. They have me upside down shaking me and blood is coming out of my nose and mouth. I see them sticking a knife or fork in my mouth to dislodge the obstruction and get air. Nothing was working. There was all types of screaming and panic and I was looking down feel fine. They brought be outside to get me in car I could see my house, I could see all the people gathering from neighborhood, I was sitting on the telephone pole and I felt there was someone with me on the wire or pole. I could her a lady say ‘he is dead.’ My Mother screamed. My Father held me, took me to back seat of car, and tossed me in car. All I saw was a super flash and blackness. I was at hospital for days with tubes in me. The day after, my parents brought me home. I had lost allot of my childhood memory. Still to this day, I look at photos I do not remember. I told my parents a few weeks after how I saw everything from above and told them how peaceful it was. They really never talked about it or try to bring it up. A year later, I started to see visions or spiritual beings in my house of a lady. I would wake up and standing in hall way was lady. I would go to my mother and tell her. This went on for months until my mother experienced what I was seeing. As years went on up to this day, I have had many encounters. I do not know why? It is all positive. My Uncle who is ninety and World War 2 veteran came and visited me last month. He finally told me what happened that day. He told me he had seen so much death in WW2. But my death was the most horrific he had ever encounter and seen. I was telling him when they were sticking fork or knife in my throat and all the bleeding. He said what? There was nothing we were sticking in your throat that was my aunties hand and finger nails cutting the inside ripping at my throat. That was causing all the bleeding. He stated it was a miracle that we are talking today.
