I had a car accident and was pronounced 'dead'.I remember feeling comfortable. I also remember the fact that I was 'coming back' and that I had certain obligations towards myself. I had to clean up my act, so to speak. I was experimenting with alcohol and cigarettes. I knew that I had to stop taking these substances into my body as it affected the connection that I had with the universe.I had always been 'aware' of things that most people weren't. When I was a child an older lady would 'come and get me' and show me things. I saw 'televisions with pictures that could be controlled by an operator' -- I know these to be computers now. I met with 'beings' that looked a lot like the drawings that I have seen of 'aliens'. I have had an uncanny sense of the 'departed' and can sum up a person within minutes of meeting with them. I can sense their pain and fear levels. I can unravel their minds for them, in a short conversation. These skills became 'more' after my experience.The future, so to speak, was shown to me. I saw faces of people that would be instrumental in my life, but that I had not met yet. My life now, seems to be some sort of slow motion replay of the events of that afternoon in 1983.
Date NDE Occurred: March 1983
At the time of your experience, was there an associated life-threatening event? Yes Accident Clinical death
I had a car accident and was pronounced 'dead'. The medics were about to 'body bag' me when I sat bolt upright and screamed.
How do you consider the content of your experience? Positive
The experience included: Out of body experience
Did you feel separated from your body? Yes I looked like me, but because of my prior experience with the astral, knew that I had separated from my body.
At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness? Within my soul, I was conscious. My body was 'unconscious'.
Did time seem to speed up or slow down? Everything seemed to be happening at once; or time stopped or lost all meaning
As one does when they enter the astral. No time, no space. Oneness.
Did you pass into or through a tunnel? No
Did you encounter or become aware of any deceased (or alive) beings? Yes The old lady was there, as were two 'alien' beings. The communication was full, but quick. I would need a book to explain it. It is of my understanding that all will be okay. I knew the old lady. She was my guide at the time. The two alien beings are of my soul family, and I communicate with them still.
The experience included: Light
Did you see an unearthly light? Yes Light emanated from my being, and those that were there with me.

After the NDE:
Was the experience difficult to express in words? No
Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience? No I had these gifts prior to my experience.
Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you? The best part was the comfort and love that I felt. The worst was the weeks afterwards when my body recovered from the shock. My body took a shaking up to be honest, and it took it a while to recover.
Have you ever shared this experience with others? Yes Most people think I am full of it. Only recently, say in the last eight to ten years, have people began to understand the universal oneness connection that we all share. I am glad that there has been a lessening of judgment of those like myself.
At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience? Yes Meditation.
