My NDE happened on a blustery summer day. The ocean was rough. In my ignorance, I believed that one could still take dangerous risks in life. I naively wanted to ride the rough waves, while at the same time I attempted to dodge the worst and biggest of the waves. I got to the water's edge. My friends were calling to me, telling me not to go that way since it was so dangerous. I was determined and wanted to ride those waves! That is what I was doing. Then I realized how bad the situation was when the force of the ocean dragged me out. Suddenly, I was outside of my body and I saw myself under water surrounded by dead alg' and at the mercy of the ocean currents. I saw very well what was happening when my vision was turned upside down. Now my image was changed and narrowed so that I could see myself in an egg with my head down in the fetal position. I came back to life. The wave that had brought me back to shore had also hurled me near my companions.When they looked to the sea they saw me and my friend with his eyes bugging out of his head yelled at me, 'Where have you been all this time!?' I didn't have an answer for him. One thing I know is that this experience changed my life forever. The incredible thing is that after this experience I had seven nightmares, which influenced my life. Five of them have come true, only two are left; it's just a matter of time for those two to manifest.P.S. At fifty-one I had another NDE but I don't want to report that one on the computer because it's too complicated.
