Lucid Thought in Dark Void

I was playing Gaelic Football which is similar to Soccer but handling and catching of the ball by all players not just the goalie is permitted. It is a fast game (some would say more exciting than soccer) and I was perhaps getting a bit too old for it. It is also supposedly a limited contact sport, shoulder to shoulder bumping is allowed, but if one is picking the ball up off the ground then one is not allowed to be bumped. However, it seems a large athletic young man playing for the opposition in his second game had forgotten or not been told that. I have no recollection of the impact but am told I was hit by his hip in the left side of my head, near my left eye as he was running at full speed to kick the ball off the ground - presumably motivated to do so before I managed to pick the ball up, and I was stooped over about to collect the ball. The impact reportedly lifted me off the ground and I spun in the air and then landed fully limp on the ground hitting my head again, clearly having been knocked unconscious by the initial impact.

A Wondrous River of Peace

I was talking on the phone and a lightning strike hit me in the face throwing me backward. I separated from my body and observed the people around me. A nurse was waiting to use the phone. She started CPR.

Everything Self-Evident

I was living alone in Washington, DC in an apartment and felt isolated from people and nature. I was depressed and hated the way I was living. I was working downtown in an office, and I had chronic bronchitis.  The doctor said there was nothing more she could do. It may have been a reaction to air pollution in the city, mold, or a severe allergy. It was caused partly by tension/compression in my chest, but I didn't know that.  Every night, I coughed and wheezed for some time before I could breathe comfortably and get to sleep.  Sometimes I seemed to start choking after falling asleep, and woke up to more coughing. This time, I apparently stopped breathing altogether.

Shed Body Like Caterpillar for More Beautiful Form

Many years have gone by since the day I believe I first met my Grandma and Uncle Frankie, nobody told me about them.  I just knew they both stood looking at me. The event stands out in my memory as though it happened earlier today; in fact, it happened many years ago when I was just a small girl. They had both died before I was born, around 40 years prior to that faithful day when I experienced something so special. Let me explain.

Bright Oversized Sun

On April 19, 2007 I experienced something I never thought I would ever experience. I was on the out door patio of a restaurant. I headed inside and I walked into a closed sliding glass door. I hit very hard. I was sort of stepping up so my face took all of the extra force of my momentum. I experienced incredible pain as my face hit the glass. I knew I was hurt badly so I turned around so I would slide down the glass instead of just falling down. My friend and a lady who I don't know put me in a chair. I knew I was in a chair and that I was in pain but I kept going in and out of consciousness and don't remember much. I started to vomit and sweat. Then I have no memory at all.
