I put my story about my Near Death Experience (NDE)
in the very back of my book Live Intuitively: Journal the Wisdom of your Soul
and want to share it with you here.
THIS IS THE beginning of it all and so I am a little surprised I would list this at the end, but I think that telling this story is important.
When I was 14 years old I was what was referred to back then as a “Jesus Freak.” If you research the movement you will get a lot of different views, but for me it was amazing. There was a coffee house in downtown Spokane called the “I AM Coffeehouse.” I hitchhiked downtown from the north side of Spokane to hang out and pass out the newspapers called “The Truth.” We shared the message, which was called Witnessing. Today if someone did this, it would annoy me, but this was the late 1960s and early 1970s and a totally different time.
On January 1, 1971 my family was visiting my aunt, uncle, and cousins who lived near Shadle Park. From their house I decided to take the bus downtown to “witness.” I walked to the bus stop at Alberta and Rowan and waited. A man pulled up in a baby blue pickup truck and asked me if I wanted a ride. I thought to myself, “Jesus will protect me,” so I got in.
I noticed he was taking me somewhere other than downtown. I began to panic and I could hardly breathe. I put my hand on the door handle, contemplating my next move. The truck turned left and I quickly opened the door and either jumped or flew out – or both.
The next thing I remember was awakening to bright lights overhead. My eyes focused and I saw my dad and my mom looking over me, their faces gray and drained. Later I realized I was at Holy Family Hospital. Apparently, I had been in a coma for two weeks.Often those who have Near Death Experiences (NDE) find their psychic abilities increase!Click To Tweet
I was told I had a contusion and a Catholic priest (my dad’s faith) had been called and he administered last rights. What happened for me, though, was that I experienced floating upwards and going towards a light. There was a Being near the light (who now I know to be Saint Germaine) who said to me, “You are not done yet, you have to go back.”
Years later, with the help of my dear friend, the late Dr. Gilbert Milner, I was able to piece together the memories and sensations of this experience. Gil was a psychiatrist, shaman, and hypnotherapist and – through hypnotherapy – he guided me to relive the experience of the accident.
This trauma resulted in brain damage (my term) and I had to relearn to coordinate my body. During the time that my brain was healing, I could not think well and therefore accessed the intuitive part of me in order to survive. This experience catapulted my psychic abilities and somehow left an opening for me to access the world beyond the physical.When you are not able to connect with those around you, you often turn to God or Guides!Click To Tweet
Since I was a little girl I often reached out for the Spirit world as a safe haven. Although I adored my dad, he was alcoholic and when he was drinking I didn’t feel safe. I began to “connect upward” rather than to trust those in physical bodies. I enjoyed a sense of belonging with God and the Angels and today I work closely with and am guided by a group of Ascended Masters called the Lords of Karma.
This is a lot of self-disclosure. Please share how you can relate.
