Lu's Experience

Experience description:   

            I was pretty sure that I was dying [IV methamphetamine overdose], but I felt so calm. I was in my bedroom. there was no-one with me, but suddenly someone [not visible] came & silently guided me through what I should do to increase my chances of living through it. it was the most calming voice... no sound, at all. out of nowhere, I knew things that I had never known before, so I calmly did these things right away. afterwards, I continued to stay lying in the exact way I'd been advised to for several hours. it felt so safe. [I would later read in a medical book that this position was the one that took the most pressure off of the heart as possible; a life-saver for a dying junkie whose heart was about to pop...]. I knew that I was okay again, & the only reason was due to the presence who had come & seen to it, personally. . someone, or something, had cared, & this was at a time in my life that no other living person seemed to...

I don't like the term 'angel,' but I do know that there is a 'someone' who has kept an eye on me, ever since... & who probably always had, my whole life before, I guess. I don't claim to understand how these types of things work. more importantly, I feel like I don't need to pick them apart, anymore. all I know is that the same soothing, silent voice, who saved me as a reckless teenager over 8 years ago, has saved me again & again since. there is something in this world that cares about us. it's this 'something' that gives it its real meaning & weight... I'm glad that I came to know of it, even it almost killed me :)

How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal every day consciousness and alertness?    More consciousness and alertness than normal

If your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience was different from your normal every day consciousness and alertness, please explain:            how could it not be? every day life is easy to snooze through... impending death & guardian spirit-types are not.

Did your vision differ in any way from your normal, everyday vision (in any aspect, such as clarity, field of vision, colors, brightness, depth perception degree of solidness/transparency of objects, etc.)?  Yes     everything material became wavy, unstable, indistinct. this was in sound, touch, sight---everything except the inner sense. that took over.

How did you view the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:            Experience was definitely real    same.

Were there one or several parts of the experience especially meaningful or significant to you?    to have been saved by one of the beings that I imagine are... the ones who truly rule this life [the real gods & angels, I guess] made me feel loved, again. it was like my life actually mattered enough to receive this intervention. it makes me feel like I must have some kind of purpose, or else I would not have my silent advisor, keeping me going. I didn't used to feel that way at all, & I used to want to die...

How do you currently view the reality of your experience:            Experience was definitely real    just because it defies modern day science does not make in untrue. I felt it. it was real.

Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?           No      

Have your religious beliefs/practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?           
Yes            I have kinder attitudes & feelings toward religion now. I used to much more jaded about it.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         Yes     it was an overdose! I was an addict. I did later quit, but not until much later...
