I WAS A THREE-YEAR-OLD CHILD WHO REACHED INTO A FISH AQUARIUM AND GRABBED HOLD OF AN ELECTRIC HEATER THAT HAD BEEN INSERTED INTO THE AQUARIUM. THE BULB BROKE AND I WAS NEARLY ELECTROCUTED.
WHEN FOUND BY MY PARENTS, I WAS GREY, ASHEN, AND STILL BEING HELD BY THE ELECTRICAL CURRENT. I WAS IN SEVERE DISTRESS AND HAD SERIOUS BURNS TO MY LEFT ARM WHEN I WAS TAKEN BY AMBULANCE TO THE HOSPITAL. MY RECOVERY WAS LONG AND PAINFUL, AND I ALMOST LOST MY LEFT ARM BECAUSE OF THE ACCIDENT.
I REMEMBER HARDLY ANYTHING AT ALL ABOUT THE INCIDENT, EXCEPT THE FEELING THAT I HAD LEFT MY BODY AND WAS IN A TUNNEL OF LIGHT.
AS I GOT OLDER, I BEGAN TO HAVE A FEELING OF INCREASED SPIRITUAL AWARENESS AND REVERENCE TOWARDS GOD. I ALSO BEGAN TO HAVE ‘FEELINGS’ THAT ARE HARD TO DESCRIBE, THAT SEEM TO LET ME KNOW OF THINGS INTUITIVELY THAT HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE, BEFORE THEY UNFOLD.
I HAVE HAD A SECOND EVENT RECENTLY (in 1998), IN WHICH I FELT I LEFT MY BODY AND MET WITH MY DECEASED GRANDMOTHER. I WAS INFORMED OF THE PENDING ARRIVAL OF A SON, WHO I DID NOT WE WERE GOING TO HAVE. IN 1999, MY WIFE GAVE BIRTH TO MY SON, AS MY LONG DEAD GRANDMOTHER TOLD ME IN MY DREAM.
