I was fifteen years old, back in 1975, where I was waiting to swim in the lake next to our home. As my brother was changing into his swim shorts, I laid down on the couch. I was only there for a short period when I found myself walking down a long hallway which seemed never-ending.
On either side of this in-ornate hallway were identical doors spaced about every five feet apart. I slowed as I arrived at what I KNEW was my door off to the left--even though it appeared indistinguishable from all the rest. The door opened and behind it was an average sized room that was lit the same as the hall. I began to enter the room knowing this is where I should go. But, as I got in the doorway, I was gripped by the sense that I would never see my brother or other family members ever again. At that point, the light went dark in the hall, while the light in the room was now coming from around a corner--strange, since the room elbowed back into where the long hall should have been.
I did not want to go any further! I tried with all my might to resist what lured me helplessly further into the room. MY GOD...I did not want to see what was around that corner. Just as I knew that the door was mine, I screeched with the fear of meeting the being in the light. I tried to no avail, then being a swearing boy that I was, I screamed JESUS--only this time it was out of sheer desperation and utter hopelessness.
Almost instantly I found myself back on the couch, in the same position that I had initially laid. But I was sweating bullets like I never had before (skinny boys like me seldom sweat, but the couch was wet from head to foot). While I laid there, fully aware that I had been returned to my body--yet afraid that at any minute I would be sucked back to where I had been only minutes ago--I heard a deep thunderous voice billow "GOD DAMN." It was as audible as any voice but only louder and directed at me.
I have since then learned (while working at a hospital), that when the heart restarts after it has stopped for a while, the body releases a large dose of adrenaline to get the heart going. This also produces profuse sweating. Considering this and the fact that I have had heart trouble as a child, further indicates that my experience was the result of death caused by heart failure.
Later in life, after other mind opening experiences (i.e., experimenting with out of body projections), I have concluded that the only one who could help me on the other side, was the same one who pulled me from out of the darkness that day 20 years ago--JESUS.
