I had an NDE at the age of 7 years. "It was during a near drowning accident at my local swimming pool. The pool was packed with children. It was the summer holidays. I had started to get into difficulty and found myself under the water. I grabbed a girl next to me by her bikini bottom. She kicked me away to the bottom of the pool. I was swallowing water fast.


Then my life was flashing before my eyes very fast - happy times mainly, birthdays, Christmas time with my family. I was confused. I thought there must have been some kind of mistake. I knew I was dead with a dreaded certainty, yet I was still thinking.


Then I found myself in what appeared to be a large tunnel with a small white light at the other end. I was moving toward this light pretty fast. I was surrounded by a feeling of absolute peace and what I can only describe as unconditional love. It felt wonderful to be there.


As I moved towards the light, I was aware of two presences near to me. They were telling me by thought alone that it was not my time. I had to go back.

We were communicating just by thoughts back and forth to each other. I knew these presences knew me, but I did not know them. I had never met them before.


Then I was moving quickly back down through the tunnel and into my body. The lifeguard was giving me the kiss of life. I woke briefly coughing and spluttering water everywhere. Then I lost consciousness.


I spent the next weeks in an oxygen tent. I was fighting for my life, in and out of consciousness - but mainly unconscious still.


I am 35 years old now and I still remember this experience as if it was yesterday. When I'm feeling sad or alone, I remember the wonderful feelings encountered in the tunnel near to the light and it brings me great comfort. To have known so much love enveloping me made me realize how worthwhile and valuable my life is.


Take care all.
