Did I speak with Death?

A few years ago now I was involved in a horrific car accident, a head on collision and the car was crushed flat from the bumper to the windscreen. I often think that I was protected that day because so many people have lost their lives in less severe cases.

I remember blacking out on impact, and it sounds like a cliché but it was as if my life flashed before my eyes and everything went out like a light switch, but then after what felt like an hour, as opposed to probably a matter of seconds, a voice told me that I had not crossed and I needed to awaken and get out the vehicle. I remember the physical strength it took to be able to open my eyes, but I managed to roll out of the car and I realised I was safe.

Now when I recollect my thoughts on he experience I wonder if I came face to face with death. What are your opinions ?

You mean Death personified like the Grim Reaper? Not sure if that guy literally exists, but who knows. It could be anything/anyone else as well. Do you not remember what that voice sounded like?

Oh well as long the voice didn't sound like a complete lunatic I suppose there isn't anything to worry about, whoever it may have been.

I would say you had a sort of near death. An opportunity to see the beginning of death but not actually visited the other side. I personally think it was your soul talking to you or a guide. Of course go with your gut on what it felt like to you. Sometimes people do have more extensive experiences but don't' remember them, probably so it doesn't sideline us from our set goals for the life.

When I blacked out it was as if my body had gone but my brain stayed active. So bizarre, almost like two separate states when normally they would work as one.

They do say that everything happens for a reason. Maybe your soul wanted your human self to see you aren't your mind. While being human we can get tricked into identifying too much with the human body and our thoughts when we are much more than that. So what do you make of the separateness you experienced?

I cant really describe it other than to say, it felt like my body had died and had I not heard something telling me to get out I'm not sure I would have ... If I was to use an analogy, the voice/thought was like a glimmering star amongst a pitch black universe, I feel like it came from the depths of my subconsciousness.

Maybe you did, EarthAngel...
In 1991 I was co-owner of a book store, and one day a strange man came to talk to me. He was dressed unusually for our town: quite formally. He was about 30-40 years old at a guess, clean cut and decent looking. I liked his character and felt at ease with him.
Our conversation took an odd turn. No small-talk. Just plunged me into what I now see as a "life review". (I didn't know that, then) I felt completely at ease discussing many aspects of my life and he asked me a few times, was I happy about what had happened?....would I go back and change anything?...did I feel I had more to do?....etc
The conversation took maybe about 20 minutes. I was curious about such a strange event. The man went on his way, wishing me well.

On my way home in the car about 5.45, I was hit side-on with temendous force as I was taking a right turn, by a speeding driver behind who had overtaken around a bend, didn't see me in time and crashed into me at high speed.

All I remember was a brilliant flash of white light. I had no pain, no thoughts, nothing.
Then I was looking at the road surface inches from me. I could smell leaking fuel and knew the ignition was still switched on. I had a tiny gap in a totally crushed car, to escape, so I got the heck out of that wreck as fast as I could.
I am skinny but don't know how I got my whole body through that tiny gap (I went back to the wreck which was held in a yard in town at a later date, and measured the gap. It was 9")
I was okay. I only had bad bruising and flesh wounds.

The police were amazed anyone had survived a thing like that. The car had been flipped like a pancake and crushed roof to chassis. Plus the driver's side had been caved in totally.

But I have always remembered that conversation I had with the stranger just before that car crash.

It took me 3 years to be able to drive again, and close on two to be able to get in a car again.

What an incredible story Toni! Now that you mention it, I recall being in the ambulance while they were checking me over, the paramedic literally said 'Thank your lucky stars kid, we could have quite easily have been in a situation where I was taking you away in a body bag'. Though it sounds so inappropriate to say in that situation, it really struck me the reality that could have been. Goodness knows what kind of alert was sent to the police and ambulances, because there were a lot of flashing lights and they'd even sent for the helicopter.

Insane when I think of it now.
