Sometime back I was in the VA hospital for med
During my stay there I was in day room sitting and
As I arose to go to my room I could not walk, plus
nauseated. My legs would not carry me and I fell and I would get up,
Only to fall again, An orderly looked and I heard him tell nurse that I had
no color. Was taken to my room and while taking my vital signs could
here panic in voices that were around me. Nurse sent for another on
a different wing he came he felt my skin and heard him say he is cold and
clammy get him on a gurney and crash cart ready! Remember a twinkle of light
in my eyes and something said about my pupils. Soon the warmth that
enveloped me felt so good and not of this earth. Was feeling a warmth
that seemed to comfort me as if all was fine and nothing would ever hurt
me again. All the commotion was getting to sound farther away now.
I was in a really bright light and could sense good all around me.
Soon I could see images and somehow I knew who they were. Was such
an inner peace inside me and I could feel it so strong. Have never
felt that as far back as I can remember. Was being drawn too the warm
light and could hear my Grand Parents saying something softly too me. This
seemed like it lasted forever. Was no concept of time it meant nothing
there. Soon I was getting farther away from the warmth and soon it
was no more. I then opened my eyes and was hooked up to all this stuff
and nurse ask me how I felt. I just looked at her not saying anything
at all. Then my Doctor came in and she ask me how I was, Asked her what was
going on? Her reply was we lost you last night for a while and was
hard to get you back and stabilized! It was then that I knew that I
had died and was given a look into what was and is awaiting me after I leave
here. I still can feel it and I fear not death to this day.
Whatever is left for me to do here I do not know. But there was a reason
I know. Have heard of near death experiences before and was not skeptic
at all. Now I know beyond a shadow of doubt that there is a place that is
for me when my job is done here and it is a great place. Has taken
me along time to put into words this experience and really it is hard to
put into words. But, I felt something inside of me urging me to write.
What has come out I have no idea until I go back and read for myself?
In closing I want all who read this just to focus on some of the words
and deeply meditate on them. This happened and I cannot Denny it. Take
it for what its worth. Was no war there no complaints just warmth all
around and have still never felt that kind and know that I won't. Was
LOVE there beyond my wildest imagination.
