I felt very sorry for the girl in the truck though my attentions quickly turned to the very very very dazzling bright white light. I felt comfortable, loved, no pain, part of a greater concept.
This is as near to accurate as I can write, given the fact that no one could
put into words the love that is experienced in one of these situations. As most
of you have had NDE's you will be aware of that love anyway.
I was a passenger in a semi trailer, "lorry" we hit the back of a stationary vehicle at quite a fast speed while on a major interstate highway. I remember the whole accident, the impact - the slowing down of time, the growl of the steel from the truck as it twisted and turned while being thrown through the air and back down the highway. It was not pleasant although I have learn't to live with these memories, for what happened next took my pain away, and helped me toward a more peaceful and loving life. Rather than NDE, I like to call it my "Heavenly intervention".
On impact I had been thrown forward smashing my head into the back gate of the stationary semi trailer at the same time the arm I had raised to save my face had been torn to bits and basically was everywhere. While my head was going through the glass, the steel end of the rear of the other truck was cutting through the flat nose of the truck that I was in and also smashing straight through my legs which were both of course broken just above the ankles clear through pinning me in. As you can imagine with the force that was behind this accident (momentum) the bent and smashed steel which once was the front of the truck was now my coffin, my bodyline could be seen clearly from my neck to my feet under the steel, as it was pressed back upon me entombing me in what could become a fire ball. It took another semi trailer to pull that steel off with a chain to release me. (four hours later). When all had calmed and the truck came to a stop, the CB radio swung down off the roof, smashing into my head where my scalp had been torn away from going through the windscreen.
Anyway, when all was quiet and I had sat in the truck for almost an hour not realizing of course that I was hemorrhaging from the artery in my arm which was severed, I started to feel all warm and fuzzy. (Yes here comes the proverbial spirit) I looked up and saw my nanna in front of me on the steel, reaching her hand out to touch me. From the moment she appeared there was no more pain, and I closed my eyes. I had gone into shock.
I remember the tunnel, then looking back at the scene as it seemed to distance itself from me quickly. I felt very sorry for the girl in the truck though my attentions quickly turned to the very very very dazzling bright white light. I felt comfortable, loved, no pain, part of a greater concept. I am catholic and until then I believed in God. Now I believe in a creator, something to which we are a greater part than the churches give credit to. God, yes, that is our name for him/her. Love (s)he was. Splendid, wonderful love, peace, wonderment.
After being enveloped by all that is, "the light", I was shown a kaleidoscope of my life. Every action I had ever made, and the consequence and reaction of my actions. I cried for those I hurt, I laughed with those whom I had made happy. I felt terrible in some cases and good in others, though I felt at that time, that I was the only one judging me. No one else, there was only love and great understanding. Unconditional love.
Anyway, I never left the light, I saw no one else. Only my life, as it flashed before my eyes. I felt so knowledgeable, then as if there was a general consensus, without being asked I was pulled backwards into my body, and the intense pain coursed through my body again.
A very happy truck driver, smiled down at me and said, "I didn't mean to hurt you love, I had to smack you in the face, you stopped breathing".
Do I regret coming back, no! I have so much love to share with everyone now, I had to come back. My life was not finished. It was cut very short.
Well that's the short version. Please feel free to share yours. Yes I do have all my arms and legs, they fixed me, wonderful thing medicine and science. By the way, I was given no drugs it was out in the middle of the country and took three hours for the ambulance to get there.
