Experience description:   

Please overlook what lead up to my experience, the drugs and alcohol, because it was very real to me.  it started while i was smoking pot with my friends.  i had already had about 8 or 9 beers and 2 hits of acid.  i took a hit off the bowl and my head felt like it was going to explode.  it felt horrible and i thought i was never going to recover.  but when i did i did what any stupid teenager would do and decided it felt cool, so i took another hit.  this time my head felt like it was going to explode again, but instead of getting better this time i passed out. 

i remember lying on the bed of the hotel room passed out, but some how i could still see the people around me.  as i looked from person to person i realized some could see me and understand what was happening to me, while others had no idea i was there.  the people who could see me also gave my what at the time they called a "gift".  it was some sort of secret that only a few "special" people in the whole world knew.  and when they told me these secrets, i was so thankful.  thankful from the bottom of my heart like i had never been before.  and the secret was always sealed with a "kiss".  the next thing i remember happening is what i call flash backs. 

it seemed like i was in a tunnel, for lack of better word, structure with a small light at the end and a arm of light extending out from the light.  every time the arm of light made a complete circle around the tunnel i saw a new image.  it started was where i was currently in life and moved back to the beginning.  i saw/remembered thing i never new i forgot/existed.  and each new image was so meaningful to me, the each touched my heart.  as the images progressed the sped up and soon i realized i could not stop them.  i knew when i got the the "beginning" birth i was going to die, i got scared but i couldn't stop it.  when i reached the time of birth though i did not die, instead i went to the next phase. 

i was presented with the "most" of everything.  the most beautiful thing i ever saw, the most sad thing i ever saw, etc.  i order to move on/not accept to die i had to 100% believe the that was not what i wanted.  and until all doubt was gone i was stuck on one image.  the only image i recall is the saddest thing i ever saw.  it was a baby with a tear.  the lost innocence, i think.  that however is where my adventure ended, except for seeing one more thing.  my mother, father and a little girl standing in the door way of what looked like a hospital room.  my mother and father were still alive and the time and i am not sure who the little girl was.
