Daniel C's Experience

Experience description:   

This experience happened when I awoke in the middle of the night about 3am.  I went to the bathroom. When I came back to bed I had just laid down and then all of a sudden I felt my body going through the ceiling, then the roof. It was painful for a split second. Then I felt myself travelling at a very high speed. There was bright light surrounding me. The ringing sound was very loud. I was thinking that maybe I had died.  Realizing that I might be dead frightened me so much that suddenly I could feel myself being slammed back through the roof and into my earthly body. I know this was not a dream.

It wasn't until 5 years later that I realized it could have been a NDE.  Only after reading about other peoples experiences. Ever since this experience Ive had thousands of very strange dreams that I can easily remember. I also dream of future events. I have witnesses to that.
