Out of Body Experience

out of body be back in 10I had the CT scan this afternoon of my face, focusing on my left orbit. If I don’t hear anything today I’ll call my physician’s office tomorrow. My neuro ophthalmologist is going out of town on Friday for a week so I hope she confers with my neurosurgeon before she goes. I’d like to get the surgery date set soon. Assuming the CT scan reveals something that can be fixed with surgery…

I thought I already blogged about the out of body experience I had when I was hospitalized, but I can’t find it on the blog and too lazy to keep searching, so here it is. When I had my second surgery, the one where they had to take out some of my skull to alleviate the pressure from my swollen brain,  I had the experience. I had been in a coma and this is the only memory I have from the coma. As my body was being wheeled to the OR  on a gurney, I left my body and hovered over it, looking down at myself. I always thought I would get excited to have an out of body experience, but I was peaceful and it seemed dreamlike, and a little dark or dim. I didn’t have angels visit, no white light appeared, and I didn’t communicate with anyone or anything, just floated and observed calmly. When we arrived in the OR I lay down next to my body and put my head on the lap of a nurse who was sitting by my body. Now the weird part started: The nurse scooped black balls of energy out of my head (my spiritual head, not my physical head). I knew that she was taking away dark energy and I felt that it was the right thing to do. And that’s all I remember. I don’t  remember re-entering my body. After the surgery I came slowly out of the coma over the next few days and as I said, that’s all I remember from when I was unconscious. The experience, although dreamlike, was very real and I have no doubt that it  happened.

When I was a nursing student one of my patients had an out of body experience where he actually left the hospital and viewed the city from an airplane. He also watched his own surgery at the time. He said he figured out how to  leave his body and could teach people. A;though I didn’t want to learn how to do it, I was always curious what that would be like. Now I know.

Some people have asked if I was given a choice to return to my body or not, but it wasn’t like that at all. I am not sure why I was given this experience, but it has caused me to lose a fear of death. I know there is life afterwards, and it is peaceful.

  4. HI Glenda – wow. I was unconscious for awhile when I was 24 and in a car accident, and have no memory of anything like an out of body experience during that time. I’ve always felt a little jealous of people who have! The aftereffects sound priceless. Interesting about the nurse and the energy work you invited her to do….. I’m sending you love and energy too.

  5. In 1960 as I was at the end of my BSN program a routine Xray showed a tumor attached to my sternum and down my aorta. Technology was not what it is today. During the 8 hour surgery I don’t remember anything until I was wheeled into the RR and then I was floating above looking down. The staff were working on my body…breathing and tubes….I felt peaceful. when I awoke, the only remembrance I had was of excrutiating pain and for 5 days did not remember much other than pain and nurses caring for me.

    In 200, when I had surgery for a broken hip (5 weeks from colon surgery for cancer and one week after the first chemo), as I was wheeled into the OR and they started to give me meds, I remember voices of staff saying oh no…that is not going to work and I was pulled into a very bright beautiful garden of flowers and I remember willing myself to move away from the beautiful place.
