Bella C's Experiences

Experience description:   

Since I was a little girl I always saw people beyond the physical, and could sense their true and feelings. I also knew there was much more to life than the physical world.

When I was around 2 or 3 I got out of my crib, my parents were still sleeping and I took some cleaning products from the kitchen.  My mother woke up and saw me laying on the floor unconscious.  She call the ambulance and they took me to the hospital and cleaned my stomach.  I do not recall that NDE, but the doctor told my mother that it was a matter of minutes for almost losing me. That happened in an army base in Panama City.

When we returned to Puerto Rico, while enjoying a beach day, I went in the beach and suddenly my legs paralyzed.  I laid at the floor of the beach for 3 or 5 minutes.  I remember this experience because I was 11.  I was desperate trying to reach for air, I try to hold my arm up in case someone could see me.  I know how desperate a person feels when he is drowning.  Suddenly I felt a calmness over me.  I saw through the water a vision of my family at my funeral crying.  I did not want to die at that time.  I start praying Our Father and ask God to let me live because I want to be a wife and a mother.  Suddenly a force pushed me up and I was walking again.  My aunts and parents saw me and ran towards me.  They did not know where was I.  I was sick for over a week because of all the water I swallowed.

When I was around 21 I drove my mother to her bus stop and told her that I was very happy but that I had a feeling that something was going to happen that day.  I got to the highway and driving my first car, new.  All of a sudden the car stopped and I try to get next to the division of the highway to get off so people could see me since they drive more than 80 mph at that highway.  Before getting out a "voice" told me to look at my mirror and stay in the car.  What I saw was a small car coming that had time to avoid me.  But after the small car was a pick up truck that was going approximately 90 mph and did not have time to stop and hit me.  At that time there were no seat belts.  My car spent a couple of times and the whole back window was gone all over me.  The car was total loss and the rear end disappeared..  When the police and a lady got me out they thought I was dead or injured.  I did not have one single rash or injury.

I had a scary experience with a man that lived near my home when I was 20.  He got in my room around 3 am with a gun and a mask and told me to not scream because he would killed me.  He had rapped other women in the neighborhood before.  When he opened my door something awoke me so because of that I did scream as loud as I could and he left with my purse.  My parents were at my grandfather's rosary so me and my siblings were alone that night.  I am sure that my guardian angel or a spirit awoke me that night.

Yes, I got married and had twin girls.  My twin girls, now 31 have been my teachers and have gone through a lot of pain and suffering.  Sometimes I wonder if that was the lesson I needed when I ask for children.
