Experience description:   


 It was a Saturday morning, no one was home. So i went outside and smoked about a bowl of Marijuana, which is about one small joint. I was intoxicated a little.

I went up to my room. and then I went to go downstairs. I felt so ill. I could not hold my self up. I sat down at the top of my stairs. I was having trouble breathing and I was getting really hot. I felt sick and went to the bathroom. I had trouble holding my self up. But I made it. I then thought if i took a shower i would feel better. so i tried to get strength back and go the my bathroom. I turned on the shower and got in. once i got in I could not hold my self up. so i laid down with the shower still on. I plugged the tub up, hoping it would fill up with water than i could lay there and relax and feel better.

My mind was wondering all over the place. Then i think i passed out. I could kind of see. but i couldn't open my eyes. everything was in my mind. then out of the shower head where the water was coming down was a bright light, with like a yellow ring around it. and i could kind of see the water falling on me. then all of a sudden my right leg started to rise. and my response was, is this really happening to me? I tried to open my eyes but i couldn't.. then my left leg started to rise. and I was thinking again what is happening? why cant i open my eyes? I kinda looked around and i was laying in a white tub that expanded for ever. like it was flat and then there was a tub like thing i was laying in with clean aqua color water. then i felt my lower body to start to rise. and then i knew i was going to die. I looked up and seen what looked like a pair of hands reaching for my body to go into. but i said. I can't go now. can i have another chance?

the light went away and i could open my eyes. I stood up. and i was like, whoa did that really happen? and then for a while i realized things that i haven't realized before. I believed in God. And i did not feel stoned or intoxicated. I felt good. I washed my self, like i do everyday when i take a shower, I got out and dried and got dressed. I looked back at the water and it was pretty. the water was clean and pure. I was thinking about keeping some of it. but i didn't. Now that i think about it, i should have kept some in a jar. but i drained the water. and after it was all drained

There was alot of dirt. and it was never like that before. I couldn't be that dirty, it looked like i rolled in mud than took a bath. I was thinking. is that dirt my Sin? And i know still believe it was my sin being washed away. I still think to my self. what if i didn't ask to live. Would i have died there in my bathtub? and it would have looked like i drowned my self. I was thankful i was giving another chance to make better of myself.

After that experience that day. I felt happy through out the day. But the next day is what makes me wonder. Which is today. I got up about 9 am. I felt real Ill. My throat hurt, I had an ear ach. and every muscle in my body ached, it felt like i spent hours in a gym working out. I took a nap from 11am-3:30pm. I had a dream, but i don't really remember what it was about or who it was. but i think i was helping someone. and i changed their life. when i woke up. I felt sick still. and then i laid there and i got this thought i was going to die if i didn't do anything for anyone.

And i started to cry to my self because i did not want to be the first to die. I have never had anyone close to my die yet. And i did not want to be the first. And i got this thought, I needed to help someone, and change there life. and the first person that came to mind was this kid i know, who doesn't really like me. and he would think i was crazy, or wouldn't really care. I don't know if this is just me talking to my self. or if it was God telling me through my own mind. but i am going to do what ever my heart tells me too.
