Warren H's Experience

Experience description:   

My wife has been sick for some time now and I have been very worried.  I was not sleeping as much and not eating right. On 6-25-2011 on Saturday night, I was watching TV when I dosed off.  I heard the words "your dying" and a fear came over me like I have never felt in my whole life. When I knew I was going to die, I just accepted it.  Then I started to feel real calm. And a 100% peace came over me.  If a doctor could put this peace in a pill he would sell it for $100,000 dollars. And if it were a street drug it would sell for $500,000 dollars. That's how peaceful it was. I looked around and there was a green room with a big black hole. And in the black hole a woman and two men were talking in beautiful voices. They told me, "See there you got through the hard part, which was the fear of dying."  Then they started explaining the peaceful feeling I was having. I felt so good that instead of being scared of the hole, I started walking towards the hole as they were telling me that it would be ok and that this is what death is.

I wasn't thinking about my family, my properties or my house or anything I was stuck only thinking about what was happening that moment. It was like I wanted to stay there and not go back. And then I started running towards the black hole. I put my right foot in the hole I wasn't afraid of it. I was calm. As soon as I put my right foot in it closed and the people told me it wasn't my time yet and I had to go back.

I woke up as soon as that happened. and that peaceful feeling that I had went away. I can't explain if I had died if it was a dream or what I don't know if it was a religious experience. I would like to know what it was if it was a dream or a near death experience. But in all it could not have been no more than a 15 minute experience because the 1 hour TV show was still a little bit under 20 minutes. The one thing that I do know is that there is a life after death and when I die I will be ok. Anybody reading this or who has had an experience like this just knows that when you die, everything will be fine.  Other people that I told this story have told me that this black hole was Hell or it was the grave. I think that I scared myself so bad that maybe something went off in my head and that feeling came over me. So don't think I am crazy because this feeling does not just happen and I would like to know what happened to me did I die was it god what happened? One thing I can be sure of is that you need not be scared of death because there is a better life after death. And if some one can tell me what happened to me please let me know. Yours truly Warren 6-28-2011
