I Should Have Died


It was my freshman year in high school. My mom, aunt, cousin and I were headed out of town. It was supposed to be a 2 hour trip but it had snowed the night before. We woke up an hour early and drove slow as to avoid any accident. We were about 20 minutes out of the city limits and we slowed down behind a snowplow. I was sitting behind my aunt who was in the driver's seat. She got tired of following it very quickly and decided to pass it. She pulled out of four wheel drive and that's when it happened.

The car hit a patch of black ice and started to skid. I braced myself against the roof of the SUV with my left hand and grabbed onto something with my right. I closed my eyes and had just enough time to think "I must look stupid. If anyone says anything I'll just say I was stretching." (I know silly last thought but it's the truth). I passed out and suddenly I was floating above the car. I saw the front two wheels go off the road then blackness.

I woke up to my cousin screaming in my ear and upside down, dangling from my seatbelt. Well, not dangling. My neck was bent and my shoulders were touching the roof. I remember my mother asking if I was alright and trying to find a way to get down from the seat belt. I put my head flat on the roof and pushed myself up and clicked the seatbelt. I landed on my knees. My cousin was still screaming. I calmed her down and got her out of her seatbelt. My mom and aunt crawled out of the front passenger window and my cousin and I crawled out of the back passenger window.

When we arrived at the hospital I told my story to the doctor and police officer that came to get the details. The doctor told us that we were all lucky to be alive. We were supposed to be bedridden for about a week. However I was able to walk around and take care of my mother who was hurt.

I still don't know what happened to make me float above the accident but I believe that it saved my life. Though I still have problems with my back and have deteriorating disks in my neck I'm glad to be alive.

I think it's a blessing that I survived too. I know I'm meant to do something I just hope that I find out what it is soon. Monday was actually the anniversary of the accident. Feb. 7th 😁

Me thinks that you floated out and above as a "black out" to the pain so you could think clearly helping the others when you "woke up"... Maybe such experiences make you forget about the "flesh", being so in "awe" of what you saw forgetting to mind bodily pains, still being able to walk and help the others... Amazing! Thank you for sharing this, you really have a message to tell that's why you are still here today... Helping people, bringing them closer to God with the "light" of your spiritual experiences.

This stuff happens to me a lot yet I never even get knocked out. Christmas 2002, some guys were doing bb gun drivebys in a red pickup. We had a huge front window, and my skull was a little bit soft with the thinnest side faceing that window. The bb that went in the window hit a hook and I was lucky to be ducking down opening a present. More recently was 2007 easter break when I got a skull fracture from a golf club. It was 1.5 inches deep of a fracture and bleeding badly. I was supposed to die but the doctors were curious about me when I survived. The latest was when I had a lanyard with 2 keys attached. We were at school at lunchtime and playing a game in the courtyard when I fell and both keys stabbed into my stomach. I got lucky because they hit perfectly to where I never had much blood loss. There have been bullets found close to me several times that were still hot.

Wow It's amazing what can happen. I think my guardian angel took me out of my body so that I wouldn't die. I know I wouldn't have survived if I was in my body. There were even rumors going around our town that all of us had died.

WOW! What an interesting story! This mis haps also happened to my beautiful daughter Amber Ann. She was one week away from highschool Graduation. Her best friend and Amber, were driving through the sierras where they lived at the time. Ambers friend had just bought a Brand new car. The two girls had just gotten in the car... My daughter NEVER! EVER! Rides without her SEAT BELT! Well, her angels were deffinitely watching over her and friends, as they had a third friend riding in the backseat, where as my daughter was in the front passenger side. So as they drove off... My daughter had not yet buckled her seatbelt, as she was so excited to read a POEM for the Graduation Ceremonies in front of the whole highschool, and she was actually READING through a POEM book that my mother, Ambers Grandmother, had poems PUBLISHED in it. Amber was Also wearing a crucifix cross that she had just received from me, for her Graduation present. Before giving this necklace to my daughter... I had it BLESSED. She and I had both been baptised together shortly before this Graduation also. Any ways, the car they were in had went of the shoulder of the road, and the driver, her best friend, over corrected at 4o miles an hour, and CRASH, BANG and 6 more BANGS, as the car rolled over and over and over, 6 times. Crushing the entire top of the compact car, and finally coming to a stop upside down. The force of the crash caused the entire roof of the passengers front, to be smashed cleardown to the headrest. The only reason my daughter was not killed? She didn't yet get her seatbelt fastened, BECAUSE her Grandmothers Book of Poems saved her. She did have a 9 inch zig zag gashed on top her head, a terribly bruised spleen, and 3 fingers sewn back on. But If she had actually been in the seatbelt? She wouldn't have survived at all. Later, she told me MOM? I could feel something surrounding me the whole time we were rolling round like rag dolls. It felt like ANGELS WINGS COVERING ME TO PROTECT ME. Then she she showed me my moms poem book... It too had Road rash and slightly shredded round the edges, like Amber. Also Amber showed me the Cross necklace she was wearing. It had blood on it still as a reminder of how her angels guarded her. I call it a GOD WINK...

I know what it was. I was just hoping to share an experience. This experience changed my life. I was spiritual before but I guess this took it to a new level.

I am glad everyone is ok! This was a spontaneous "obe" some people report having these experiences after suffering from a traumatic experience. One such experience is your story vehicle accidents.

In my opinion... You probably already knew this... But I think you had a NDE (near death experience) or in other words Astral projection... Or in other other words Out of Body Experience.:) I've heard of it but never really heard discriptive storys... At least that's what I think it is.
