In 1965, Patrick McCollum had the experience of dying. His NDE resulted from a brutal motorcycle accident when he was hit by a drunk driver. He ceased breathing and his heart stopped beating for more than 6 minutes. A doctor on the site pronounced him dead.
He floated through a tunnel of light. At the end of the tunnel, he came face to face with a luminous woman. "There was a deep sense of understanding, of knowledge hidden below the surface of her glance . . . there was a feeling in my heart that she knew my every thought, my every joy, my every pain."
"Are you ready to come with me?" she asked. "Who are you?" I questioned. "I am God," she replied.
As a direct result of his NDE, Patrick became a global leader of world peace and religious pluralism. He also discovered that he has the ability to heal people.
