The Tunnel Between Life And Death


This story took place only two nights ago, and I don't think I could ever forget it. To create a scenario for you, I was texting my friend at about 1.30 AM, when I was unable to fall asleep. My friend has several personal problems that I had promised to help him out with, and hence the reason I was up texting him at that hour.

What happened afterwards is very hard to explain, but I'll do my best. When I was waiting for a reply, I lay back and close my eyes. I did not fall asleep. Suddenly I found myself unable to neither move nor open my eyes, yet I was aware of everything around me. The sound of my parents sleeping, of a cat outside - of everything. What I saw was very different from what I was hearing. I was in a tunnel.

I was in two places at the same time. My physical body was still in bed, as inanimate as a doll, while my mind was elsewhere. In the tunnel. There was a path, and there were piles of rocks on the edges. Dead ahead there was a bright light. The light emitted such happiness, so it was almost impossible not to go there. When I tried to turn around, there was only nothingness. The only way you could go is straight forward, where the light was.

After staring at the light for a while, I took a step forth, but someone had grabbed my arm. I don't remember the face of my saviour, although I recall her voice was soft like silk. The only words she spoke were:

"Peri, I can't let you go there. You need to be there for Sasha, don't let him down."

After that, I was snapped back to reality. I could open my eyes, and I regained the ability to move my body. It was as if I had never left.

I'm quite positive that I was dying that night, but the girl didn't think it was my time yet. After that night, I decided to thank her every evening before I fall asleep. What do you think happened to me? Thank you for taking your time to read this.

I think you're absolutely right, we hear about cot deaths in adults all the time and it sounds as if that could have been you had it not been for your guardian angel. Great story!

Hello Ayumi,

I read your story over a few times, when all of a sudden what popped into my head is that you are the light that you saw. You are not ready to go back to the light yet, because you are a beaming beacon of light to others... Just my interpretation...
