I have been very ill for the past 3 years almost, and have taken a lot of different medications. About a year ago, I had a dream that I had died, and I was in this very bright green tunnel that was very twisty and turning, then everything went pitch black, and I woke up. I'm not sure if it was a dream or not, I think it was. Anyhow, I read Rudy's NDE and it was a little similar with the colors and the tunnel, then blackness. The thing is, is that it frightened me very much, I thought it was a sign that I would go to hell, because it ended up at a very black and dark place, in my thinking, hell is a dark black place. But, in Rudy's experience, it was'nt hell, but only a trip to a wonderful place, so it gave me hope, I'm not scared anymore. Thanks for posting your experience, it reminded me of my purpose to love God and other's, that is my full duty here in this body. I have had other experinces with feeling like I was floating in and out of my body, and it's a great feeling, I always liked when it happened to me. It usually happens when I'm really ill. It's been happeneing since I was a little girl. Has anyone else had that happen to them?
