I didn't want to get back into mybody, it looked terrible, like a train wreck
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Light and Death – Dr Michael Sabom
My grandmother didn't take me back through the tunnel, or even send me back or ask me to go. She just looked up at me. I expected to go with her, but it was communicated to me that she just didn't think she would do that. My uncle said he would do it. He's the one who took me back through the end of the tunnel. Everything was fine. I did want to go.
But then I got to the end of it and saw the thing, my body. I didn't want to get into it... it looked terrible, like a train wreck. It looked like what I was – dead. I believe I was covered. It scared me and I didn't want to look at it.
It was communicated to me that it was like jumping into a swimming pool. No problem, just jump right into the swimming pool. I didn't want to, but I guess I was late or something because he [the uncle] pushed me. I felt a definite repelling and at the same time a pulling from the body. The body was pulling and the tunnel was pushing... it was like diving into a pool of ice water... It hurt!
