A description of the experience
The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences – Dr Penny Sartori
Christine Stewart emailed me in response to an article of mine on the internet a few years ago:
I was 11 years old when it happened. I am now a grandmother of 52 and the experience I had has never left me. It was the most profound thing that has ever happened to me and, what is more, it still affects me.
I have no fear of death and I do not grieve for the dead or dying because I know they have gone on to another dimension.
Briefly, I was like most kids of 11, mucking about on the way home from school that day. I stepped off the pavement without looking, into the path of an oncoming car which hit me in the back.
I was thrown across the road and remember thinking that it was going to hurt when I landed. I heard a loud 'snap' and saw a flash, at which moment I was rising out of my body at rapid speed. I felt no pain as I seemed to lift higher and higher, it became dark and I was still travelling rapidly.
There was an overwhelming sense of being loved, like the whole universe loved me.
I came to a stop in front of some sort of barrier which looked like a privet hedge. There were flowers growing in the hedge which were huge, much bigger than my head! Beyond the hedge there were People looking out at me; they all seemed very interested. Then there was the lady. I call her 'the shining one'. She was so beautiful. I knew immediately that she was hundreds of years old but had the face of someone perhaps in their thirties.
I was happy to be there, the feeling of love and peace was beautiful.
'You must return,' the lady said, although I never once saw her mouth move. I went to object, at which moment I found myself in a great deal of pain back on the side of the road with ambulance men and a huge crowd of people around me. I learned quickly that my experience was something I should keep quiet about, as folk looked at me strangely if I spoke about it. But I won't ever forget it and as I grew older I realized that many more folk than myself had had a similar experience.
That experience has helped me through some of the darkest times in my life. Death is not the end!
