Me and two friends came back with car from a holiday in Spain. Since
my friends couldn't drive I had to drive alone all the way back. On the highway
I had been driving non stop for eight hours. I was very tired, wanted to sleep,
then we reached Lille, from that city it was only half hour away from my home.
It's a place in France that has lights on the sides of the highway. The rest of
the highway we did was mostly dark .
I looked at the highway
lights, and than things suddenly changed. I'm walking on a road, no car anymore,
and I'm all alone. The end of the road is a big bright light and I knew I had to
On the side of that
road was something ugly, it felt really bad. I didn't wanted to look ,
something in me told me, don't look, don't look just go to the bright light. But
I did look in an eye flash and see what was in the dark. I couldn't move
anymore. I can only describe like arms of an octopus. Moving, wanted to grab me.
They was black and darkness was surrounding them. Those octopus -like arms had
me hypnotized . I didn't had my own will anymore. I wanted to move to them
instead of going to the light front of me. Then behind me came a man,( I think
He was Christ) he took my arm and helped me walk towards the big light. The
octopus-like arms moved away when He passed with me. I remember he was wearing
sandals and his feet was golden glow. I held my face down when going to the
light. We reached the light inside. There it was a feeling of peaceful,
The Man who saved me
from the evil octopus shaped arms went to stand behind me. Didn't say anything.
In the light was another man. He had white eyes, no pupils, had a long beard. He
had also a stick like from grapevine in his hand . He talked to me, but he
didn't open his mouth. He talked in my head. I could hear what he said to me,
without him moving lips. I could feel wisdom (that's kind of hard to explain).
Than I felt like he was going through my head, my memories in a flash, extremely
fast, very strange feeling. he said it wasn't my time yet. I had to go back.
Than in one second I was back in my car, and it was right on time cause I had to
push the brakes immediately, the car was going to hit at 120 km an hour a big
truck. My two friends who was in the car woke up from the noise of the brakes
and they had horror on hem face. One said, "you know we just escaped death" I
was still in chock of what all happened . Than 1000 questions came in my mind.
Where was I been, how long was I away, and how I could have been driving the car
when I was having a NDE...
