My Near Death Experience
Ten years ago I was not in the best way. I felt depressed and truthfully, I was wanting to be finished with this life. I wouldn’t take my own life but I was hoping it would just end.
I went to my job each day like a zombie, just getting through my day, then home to watch TV all evening. I guess I kind of manifested what happened next because I got my wish. I was driving home from work one night and the roads were slippery. It was dark and I didn’t see the traffic accident ahead until it was too late.
It seemed like time stopped. I could see and feel my car sliding into the other cars. I felt myself fly from my car and then I was surrounded by people. I was laying on the street and there were people all around me. They were speaking to me very calmly, asking me if I wanted to be finished with my current physical life. I said that I absolutely did want to be finished.
I remember the feeling of floating and I saw bright lights. I followed the lights and it felt good. More people were there as I followed the lights. Some I had known before and some I had never met.
Just then a very tall being that was brighter than the others came forward. He told me in my mind that I had an important mission on earth. I could leave now if I wanted to but I was very close now in my physical life to full-filling that mission.
He showed me things in my mind, it was like receiving thoughts and pictures at the same time. He showed me a little of what would be ahead should I decide to go back to my body and continue my lifetime.
I chose to go back to my body. I woke up in the hospital in the emergency room with many broken bones. My face went right down the street so much of one cheek was missing and I was a mess but I have done a lot of healing inside and out since then.
My life has changed in so many ways now. I have found out that I can heal people in my ways. A mother came to me with her young daughter and the girl was very sick. It took me time to make the mother understand that I could help but I finally did. I changed the girl’s diet in a radical way then started energy healing with her. I think the sessions made both the girl and her mother feel better. I could help with their stress with the daughter’s illness. Changing the girl’s diet and removing stress and worry really made a difference in the girl’s life.
Now I know what’s ahead and why it wasn’t my time to leave this lifetime just yet.

Carmen, thank you so much for sharing your experience. I’m so glad you decided to stay in this life. I sure do understand how life can be really hard sometimes. Now you are healing people! I would love to hear more about that. You are now an author on the site!

Well my post looks very nice with the pictures and editing you have done, Vickie. Thanks for that. I’ve been wanting to write about this for a long time and I’m glad I finally did. I remember it like it was yesterday. I’ll be writing more as I get time. I love this website!

Carmen sounds like me last yr, the pandemic, political morass, lack of ability to do anything meaningful to myself or others, and to top it off, I felt horrible physically, felt like I was slowly dieing, just had a problem going to mailbox every day and sleeping less than what I really needed or wanted, I was trying to use sleep to escape my rough feelings, but with prayer and staring intent to heal any physical discomfort, so I did come out the downward spiral. So glad I now feel so much better. Great article, Thanks.

I’m glad you’re feeling better, Harris. That sounds like depression and once you’re in it, it’s a hard thing to climb out of. I think talking to people about how you feel helps a lot. For me, I’ve learned that life is a series of good days and not too good days. I have learned that this seems to be true with everybody. Apparently, we are here to experience both the good and the not too good. I LOVE your new post!

This is such a sad and happy story. It made me cry. My sister was in an accident and I wondered if she had a choice. She didn’t come back.
November 7, 2020 @ 8:05 am
Hello Beth, I’m sorry about your sister. Whatever the choice she made was the right one. You can be assured of that. Welcome to the site.

Yes she made the right decision, death is not the end, it’s a New beginning! At my age if I should leave I will struggle to stay there as my place in heaven is built and waiting for me. Sorry for your loss, but she is happy I can assure you of that.

Thanks for sharing, I love to hear about near death experiences, my grandma and godmother both had them. That tall being did he show you something from the future?
November 8, 2020 @ 9:09 pm
Yes he did. He showed me that I would be healing people and I’ve been doing it, in one way or another, since about a year after the accident. I’m not in the business of healing but I have made a real difference in a few people’s lives and my own. What happened to your relatives with their NDEs?

Carmen, fascinating post. Do you follow IANDS (International Association for Near-Death Studies)?
Isn’t it interesting how your life shifts dramatically once you’ve had such a spiritually transformative event? It’s never the same again…and for the better. Looking forward to staying connected with you and your posts.

Candice, how nice. Thank you so much. I look forward to staying connected to you too. It really is crazy how things change and shift when you have something like an NDE. It’s like you get to see it up close. So glad you are here!

I was the speaker at one of IANDS monthly conferences last month. Getting to know the people at IANDS feels like a homecoming. Even though I haven’t had an NDE, I’ve learned that many spiritually transformative events share characteristics of NDEs.
It’s fascinating to actually step into the field of the nonphysical. It changes your life and makes you view the world differently.

Carmen that was so inspiring to me, I really got a lot out of it. Thanks.

Thank you Harris! It’s been a long time but I remember every detail. Over the years I feel like more understanding has come to me about why I need to finish this lifetime and not check out early. I feel the NDE made a lot of changes in me but sometimes life is still not easy.

So true Carmen, pitfalls and challenges keep us on our toes. Thanks
