Nathan D's Experience

Experience description:   

I was filling very ill one evening and was tired and weak. I just got back from living in another country about a week or two earlier. I was sick the week that I left to go back home.  I am unsure if this had anything to do with my experience. As I was in my room, I started to feel very tired so I lay down.  A fever picked up and I started to pass in and out of consciousness. After a while, it just all stopped and was like being in darkness. Then I could see my self lying in bed as I was above my self. I stared down and realized that I might be dead. I started to go up superfast, out and away from earth, up and up very fast.  I was unsure if I was being carried up or if I was in a tunnel. When I reach the end, I was stopped by something that was very big. I could not make out it's face very well. 

What happen next is a little faded, as it happen over a year ago, but it said to me that it was not my time and I had more to do.  I am unsure if this meant more for me to do to be able to pass or more to do in life.  It said I need to go back down as I was going back down. I pled not to send me back.  I was unsure if I was going back to earth or somewhere else, I felt an extreme sense of sadness come over me.  I pled to stay and I went back the same way I came up. 

I went very fast down back into my body as I awakened. I was gasping for air and jumped up. I still was not feeling well, so I laid back down unaware of what just happen.  I did not come aware until after I was no longer sick. I have not told anyone in fear that no one would believe me or think that it was hallucinations or crazy. The very few people I have told think it was an hallucination but I had hallucinations throughout the night.  These hallucination were more like dreams that I came in and out of.  They were way less vivid and not like I what I had experienced.
