Manju's Experience

Experience description:   

On 28th April, I returned back from office, it was around 5:45. I opened the door, threw my purse on the table and lied down on the bed, as I had started feeling very exhausted and tired.

My neck, spine and shoulders became stiff...It was dark and there was 'nothing', I went into 'nothing', and experienced darkness only, a nothingness....for few seconds. I heard as if a voice from inside is saying.... my name and ...die...die...and suddenly I regained consciousness and felt that stiffness in my spine, shoulder and neck...I consciously relaxed my self and I was feeling better. I was highly confused and didn't know what had happened. gradually I started feeling normal, I saw the time...it was 6.18..I got scared and thought of calling my friend, and telling him all this.
