I was hit by a car and was thrown ten feet in the air and fifteen feet in front of the car. I think the force of landing in the middle of the street brought me back or shocked the life back into me.

Did you pass into or through a tunnel? No
Did you encounter or become aware of any deceased (or alive) beings? Yes Yes. The first one I met was one like in a hooded robe whom I knew immediately as someone who had been with me all my life.

The experience included: Presence of unearthly beings
After the NDE:
Was the experience difficult to express in words? Uncertain Time slowed down considerably and it is hard to explain in an earthly dimension or in a third dimension.
Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience? Yes I had an odd gift since I was a kid about hearing a certain song (Don McLean's - American Pie) that if I heard the song unexpectedly on the radio, that someone in my family or someone close would die. It became better tuned after the accident probably about nine or ten years ago when I heard the song, I the word Aunt popped into my head. I then told a co-worker that every time I heard this song someone close to me dies, usually within forty-eight to seventy-two hours. I then called my mother and was going to ask her about our ninety year old aunt, but before I could ask, she told me of an aunt who suddenly died just a few hours before on my dad's side of a stroke (1995).
The next experience was about six months later when again, I heard the song, and the word brother popped into my head. I called my mother to check on my only brother and again before I could ask she told me of my step-dad's brother who had just had a stroke and they were flying up east to be with him. He passed away less than forty-eight hours later. They watched him die and they said a big smile came across his face and tears ran down his cheeks right before he passed away. There are many more but the last that I will describe was two years ago and just recently a month ago.
Two years ago a neighbor and very close friend died in a car accident. I remember being at work and hearing the song just as I was starting to work. I looked across the room and told my co-worker about this song experience. Right after that, a strong chill went through my body. It was a Friday and by that Monday, my friend was dead. When I returned to work the co-worker was spooked by this and asked that if I ever heard this song again to please tell him about it. Last a month, while driving to Dallas I had the new version of this song by Madonna recorded on CD and heard it playing while on my road trip. My name popped into my head and I was a little worried about this but it turned out to be a friend of mine with the same name who died of cancer. In conclusion, I tried to rid myself of this ability by buying the CD and playing it continuously. It worked for a while, but I have come to the realization to accept this gift. I believe this NDE enhanced my gift and enhanced my sixth sense in other ways also.
Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you? Knowing I had a choice but decided to come back because of my stupid destiny, which I have no desire to fill because of this NDE then and now.
Have you ever shared this experience with others? Yes To close friends and family who wish to listen.
At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience? No
Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? One other thing. Before this accident, I was always a skinny runt. But a year after this accident a desire of mine to be tall and big was fulfilled. At nineteen, I went from five feet ten inches tall to six feet two inches tall from one hundred and fifty pounds to two hundred and thirty pounds in a matter of six months. I know in my heart that if this accident and experience had not occurred I would still be a lot smaller than I am today. Besides at my fifth year High School reunion no one recognized me at all.
