I had already taken my prescribed Adderall earlier in the day. Later that night after work I took more drugs and smoked synthetic weed. I was fine and immediately just wigged out and had this crazy experience. I remember going super-fast, so fast my skin was burning off and then down a tunnel. At the end of the tunnel it was split, the top section was white and the bottom was red. There were voices saying, 'Choose' and I kept hesitating and they kept saying, 'Choose now! Choose now!' For some reason it took me forever to spit the name Jesus out but I said it like jeeeeeeeessssuuuuussss really long as I'm flying through this tunnel. After that, I went instantly to a better part of life. It was a life where everything seemed to be just perfect, where everything was revolving around me. Not long after that I became conscious and my one friend that was there told me I passed out and was rolling around on the floor, I rolled around so much I had scratches all over me. I have never had an experience like this. I have never had a near death feeling and never any dreams about Jesus himself.
