Experience description:   

Phil and I had gone to bed, I had been asleep a while when I turned over on my side facing Phil and felt a shock like every nerve ending in my body had shocked me it wasn't my entire body just the nerve ending like someone took about 100 electrical wires and touched them to my body in different places at the same time. 

Then I was in a bright light the light didn't hurt my eyes at all it was real white and clear and warm. I was suddenly taken out of the light and was floating  near a tunnel. The tunnel was square and looked like it was made of clapboards. Inside there were people, looked like mostly men in hats like they wore in the 60's, walking slowly around with their heads down and in a couple of places they looked like they were coming through the walls. But they looked like they were patiently waiting on something. But none of them looked at me. Most of them really all of them seemed to be men.

I could see a light far in the distance. I was then suddenly drawn back from the entrance and a voice spoke, I could feel a presence but couldn't really see anyone the voice was soothing and calm but very firm.  I could see the tunnel stretching out in a winding road fashion until it disappeared. As if it were suspended on air there was nothing but darkness around it except at the end, I could see there was a light at the end. 

I said to myself, I'm dead, I'm dead.  Then the presence spoke, it sounded as if it was all around me yet still coming from beside the tunnel.  The voice said YOU HAVE TO GO BACK and I said "I don't want to go back"  and the voice said, YOU HAVE TO GO BACK IT'S NOT YOUR TURN and I again said I don't want to go back and the voice said again,   YOU HAVE TO GO BACK IT'S NOT YOUR TURN, and I repeated "I don't want to go back".  All of the sudden I was back in bed and wide awake and I was crying WHY WHY WHY DID YOU SEND ME BACK WHY DON'T YOU WANT ME?!!!!!  Then I cried myself to sleep.
