A Child's NDE - Kirkland, Wa
happened when I was 7 years old. It was in 1972. When I told what I
had experienced to my mother and grandma, they had just said
"forget it, it was just a dream." but I knew better, and
the feelings of rejection stayed with me until a few years ago when
I finally figured out that it was done for me out of unconditional
I had been in a private Christian school for 2 years. I was convinced that my life path was that of a nun. I didn't know that you had to be catholic to be a nun. So one night, when I was saying my prayers, I decided that I would go and visit Jesus. I went to sleep and the next thing I knew I was whooshed out of my body and was floating toward a gray tunnel. The tunnel was beautiful. It was a tunnel of clouds. I knew that I was going to be with Jesus.
The closer that I got to the brilliant light, I knew it was the end, the more love I felt. It was all encompassing, there was so much emotion I thought that I would burst, but I still wanted more.
When the tunnel opened out there were 3 people waiting for me. At first I didn't know who they were, then I knew. It was my grandma, great grandma, and great grandpa. They were all smiles and had their arms out to hug me. I was so elated. I was home. I never wanted to leave, I finally felt like I belonged somewhere.
Then a beautiful being of light came towards us. I was so happy, I thought that I would finally be with Jesus, but it wasn't Jesus. He was like Jesus, but I knew that it wasn't. He radiated so much love, I didn't care that it wasn't. I went over to hug him and he stopped me. He didn't physically stop me but some force stopped me. I asked what was wrong. He just looked at me and said "It's not your time yet. You have to go back" I started to cry because I didn't want to go back. I belonged here. I said "I'm not going back. I want to stay". He looked at me and said again "It's not your time."
Then a force started pulling me backwards, back through the tunnel, then I had a sensation of falling. I fell into my body with a thud. I sat straight up. I was crying. I couldn't stop. I didn't want to be here.
The feelings of rejection I felt stayed with me for years. I am finally grown up enough now to know why it was done, but I can't wait until it is my time.
