I have had an experience where I actually felt myself being stretched and pulled away from my body, It happened back in 2005 or 2006. I was addicted to drugs and staying in this crack-house with other addicts and had made this place my home after losing everything including my life with my children for a couple years. I was at my lowest point, I had been prostituting myself to pay for my habit of doing crack then it graduated to where I was shooting up cocaine. I hated my life and didn't care if I lived or died, I had been in very dangerous situations with a guy putting a gun to my head, then I had this guy hold me hostage with a knife, and also had been raped by this guy going around killing women and raping them, I always wondered how in the world did I survive all this? I told the guy with a gun to go ahead and shoot me, I didn't care, I even started laughing hysterically and he decided he wasn't going to kill me and asked me for a cigarette and we both set there and talked about our bad situations, anyways i'm getting off the subject sorry, anyways back at the crack-house I was sitting at a big round table down stairs, had been up for day using drugs, there were a couple of other people sitting at the table also using. So as I'm sitting there all of a sudden I felt myself stretching slowly away from my body, I could actually see my soul strecthing out across from where I was sitting and it frightened me so, I was thinking oh my God what is happening? Why am I leaving my body? I looked over at my body sitting there wanting to get back, then the next thing I knew I was back in my body. It happened very quickly the going back in part, but when I was leaving my body that part was in slow motion. After that happened I questioned myself and somehow turned my life around, got off the streets and got off the drugs without rehabilitation or anything, this man who I had been going on dates with/ my John ended up making me want to live again, he got me off the streets and we moved to the country away from everyone and I have been clean now for almost 10yrs. I always wondered why I was still here on this earth, why I was given another chance, and I truly believe God had a plan for me and that's why I survived a very hard life. And I believe the reason I am still here is because I have a 3 year old grandson who has autism, I have been raising him since he was a month old, his mother/my daughter is on drugs herself now and his father is in and out of jail constantly. So I believe that was a wake up call from God himself letting me know it's not your time to go, your needed here on earth for a little longer. And that is why I think I died for a few minutes without knowing so God could give me a wake-up call to get my life together, because he had plans for me. This experience has never ever happened but that one time, but it was so vivid and so real it stayed with me and never left my thoughts
