Knocked off bicycle

A description of the experience
What happens when we die – Dr Sam Parnia
It happened 17 years ago. I was knocked from my bicycle and shattered my skull into 9 separate fragments and broke my right arm and my shoulder. I was not expected to live.. I knew there was going to be a tremendous impact a split second before the collision that threw me from my bicycle onto my head in the road. Then I remember nothing until, in the coma I went where dead people go. I was standing next to a figure the same height as me. I was standing on his right and he had his right arm across my shoulders. We were looking straight ahead of us into the near distance.
I have since described this figure as a guide because I found it so hard to say I met God. But it was God – 'my' God. As I looked at him he impressed on me that I was seeing the God I had been brought up to envisage – he was manifesting in the way most comfortable and acceptable to me. I knew that the grey haired, white robed, non sexual [by that I mean he was man and woman or neither] being beside me would be everything to all dead people .
We were standing on what looked like sun-kissed clouds or snow which formed a vast circle........
'This is the love held for you by souls already' he said 'and there appeared a cluster of spheres of light opposite. Human sized, oval shaped and the most beautiful pink golden hue that I can only describe as the colour of beams of evening sun. All dead loved ones were there and the sphere at the forefront was bigger, as it was my grandparents, who were one …......... the spheres were all the same, but I knew who was who
'God' told me to look down below... and way below us was earth
'This is the love held for you by those on earth' I was told
Throughout my experience I was told I wasn't to stay and that I was being shown this to sustain me through my life, which has been very hard
