fishing trips and go to the beach. I was scared of the water. It was an
overwhelming fear. "I had the thought of when we go over bridges or go near the
water. We would fall in. My heart would pound. I would break out into a deep
sweat and will shake like a leaf."
I was around the age of five. We lived at these appartments called (Faundale) It
was a beautiful sunny summers day. We went to the pool. It was a round pool.
There weren't that many people present, other then my two sisters, my mom and a
friend. Along with some residence from the appartments.
I went walking around the edge of the pool. This little chubby girl in a two
piece bathing suit. With a curious mind..looked at the water. A thought came
over me. "What will happen if I jump in?" I stood at the edge of the deep end.
Staring at it for a couple of minutes. Took the plunge, dove in!
I felt myself sinking down deeper and deeper as I sank like a rock. I felt the
water going through my nose and mouth. I began to see darkness. Then all I saw
was darkness. I felt light as air. Then I begain to float upward. I saw light. A
blue-grey light. Light was all around. Like swirls. It was animating. It was
alive. I felt as if I was going through a wind tunnel but it was space
everwhere. "I know it sounds wild but I'm doing my best to explain this
experience." I felt this incredible love and peace all in me. All over me. I
felt I was in the presence of the God of the universe.
Then I felt as if I was going up higher. Then there was a force that was pulling
me back. "I didn't hear a voice or see any loved ones or a heavely paradise
that's discribed by other neardeath experiencers."
I did though felt in my spirit that I have something I need to do while I'm on
this earth and it will be revealed to me in time. "The weirdest of all was as I
went up. I felt my spirit go out of the concreate. Of the side of the pool back
into my physical body". I awoke and said with tears. "Mom, I went to the
Twilite's Zone!" I didn't know what to call it at the time. All I know was I was
in the arms of my mother. Our friend Marry Ann jumped in to save me. "From that
day I never was afaid of the water. I love swimming and have a whole new
perspective of the afterlife!" ;)
