I was just a little girl when I had my NDE and I can't say that it was a positive experience because I didn't actually see anything beautiful or peaceful.

I remember going to bed that night and being a little ill but not in pain or having a fever. My parents had told me goodnight and I turned off my lamp and went to sleep. I woke up hearing a quiet buzz that just kept getting louder and louder. I was extremely frightened.

I opened my eyes and all I saw was pure blackness. I was floating in this black void. It was as though I was just floating there and the noise did not stop. The only way I can really describe it is like being pulled by a vacuum.

I was floating in this darkness for only a second and I was aware that I was dead. I remember just knowing I was dead. I screamed, "God, I'm not ready! I'm not ready!" I think I said it twice and I was back in my body.

It baffles me that as such a young child I knew immediately that I was gone.

I had a really hard time after this happened and I had a hard time going to school and even living because I was so scared of death. I wish sometimes that I would have seen what was beyond the blackness like most of you have so I have more peaceful feelings of it.

I was totally aware that God was there but I was also aware that it was a mistake I was there and He fixed it very quickly.

I am an adult now, a mother, a wife and I am grateful to God everyday that I was able to experience Life. I pray daily that I will live to grow old. I want to take in all that I can before leaving this life again.
