December 2nd, 2015 started out as a typical Wednesday. As a long time Montessori school Educator, I spent the day guiding small people to be the best versions of themselves they could be. When the school day was over I left work to walk to my car, parked off campus in a lot the school leased. It was dusk with a light drizzle in the air. At approximately 4:45 while crossing the street, at a light in a crosswalk, I was struck by a large pickup truck traveling 30+ mph. It came from behind me as it made a left hand turn, striking the right side of my body, and propelled me more than 3 car lengths and 30 feet in the air. Upon landing I sustained multiple fractures, sprains, internal swelling, a bleeding head and traumatic brain injury. I, however, did not feel any of it at the time. I was in another realm entirely.
I was high above looking down upon the scene with a bird’s eye view. My body lay motionless, and looked like that of a chalk drawing. I was lying on the right, front side, knees somewhat bent, head cranked towards the left. There were two women and a man standing near me, alarmed and panicked. With senses other than the physical senses of hearing and seeing, I “heard” and “saw” the scene below. I was a bit disoriented yet comfortable and detached as I watched. Then warmth, and peace, and stillness came over me.
The scene below began to fade and I was in a new place entirely. There was total blackness, expansive space; formless, calm, vast, spacious, warm, still. I was floating yet felt held, nurtured as if in a cocoon. This place was free of worry, free of judgements, doubts, concerns, grudges, resentments. There was no fear here. No ego. There was pure Beingness, pure Presence, pure peace, wholeness. It was timeless. From the stillness a sense of waiting, of there being something else slowly unfolded.
I became aware of an enormous loving Presence that radiated an effulgence of light. Pure, white, crystalline light. There was a strong yet soft and gentle quality to this Presence, this Light. It was neither male nor female and had qualities that we, in our human forms, attribute to both. This Presence was there to guide me, to share information and answer questions. In an instant I knew that this Presence was relating to my own Higher Self, the place of the Knowing. In this place I was able to receive information and understanding in multifaceted manner. This Presence communicated with the part of me that is eternal. The Divinity of my own Soul essence in communion with the Divinity of this Being Of Light, was sharing information with me.
Things were being shown to me, and shared with me, at light speed. It was as if I understood the depth and layers of everything about my own life and circumstances at the time, and about being human. All I had been experiencing in my life was clear and everything made sense. I was merged with, yet separate from this Presence. My Higher Self connected in Oneness with this Presence in this Realm. My awareness was that my awareness was coming from the part of me that is eternal. The part of me that does not die. At some point I felt a sense of urgency to get back. If I was going back into the body I had emerged from, it needed happen, NOW! I was eager to incorporate all of the information received into the life experience and guided to share the information and understandings that were transferred with others. I remember assuring the Presence and my Higher Self that I would remember all that was imparted. Moments prior to re-entry, the Presence said "when You go back, it's time to Live Big"! At the moment a sense of descending emerged, I asked the Presence, "who are you". I experienced, with all senses "I AM YOU".
As my soul entered my body there was a density, a weighted like feeling. I remember being partly in, partly out about a foot outside my physical form. I heard yelping. I didn’t feel pain, yet my body must have as I realized the yelping sound was coming from my breathing form. While the side outside my body was vast, timeless, expansive, the density I was experiencing felt like a genie being squeezed into a bottle. When I came into somewhat of a more conscious embodied awareness, I was being taken out of the ambulance into the organized chaos of people frantically tending to me in the level 1 trauma center of the hospital I was brought to.
The after effects of a NDE, including highly attuned extra sensory awarenesses continue as does information and guidance from Beings of pure crystalline light.
What does this all mean? How do we deepen our connection with and incorporate Spiritual Knowings into our Daily lives? How do we consciously live from a place of access to the Higher Self, the Knowing that is connected to Source in practical ways? And, how do we move through our lives embracing our humanness AND our Spiritual nature?
Many NDEr's experience multidimensionality, other realms of existence and an unconditional, infinite, immense Love that is hard to describe with words. We may receive information and uploads which help us understand our Soul's journey, life circumstances and messages to bring back about living, dying and the nature of being embodied expressions of Divinity. When we return to our bodies it can take some time to make sense of it all and to feel grounded in the physical realm. Extrasensory sensitivities are often amplified and the ability to channel information heightened. There is an understanding of Source, of Love, of Light, of the eternal part of us that is solidified in our Knowing through the experience.
During my NDE, information was shared with me about life, death, and the nature of being a Soul in a Human body. What a GIFT! We have an extraordinary opportunity while we are here to see through the eyes of Love, to interact with life as a tremendous Blessing, to connect with our I AM Presence, create Brilliancy on the planet, and to recognize that kindness spreads like ripples affecting the whole of existence.
I welcome the opportunity to share more with you or your group about Near/Shared Death Experiences, messages received and our abilities to attune to states of expanded awareness, applying insights gained to daily life.
