LOVED the Rocky and Bullwinkle reference in your second story.
All of this is very interesting. I would guess those two presences in the first story were your spirit guides. Two of mine have talked to me, but only 3 times in my life, and it was their choosing. All attempts at contact on my part have failed.
Regarding the second and third stories, are you familiar with the "time slip" work of Starfire Tor? You might look her up if you're not.
I am sure you know who Whitley Strieber is, and he has also had several of these re-do experiences. If you ever listen to his Dreamland radio show online, there are some shows in the archives about just this sort of thing,and some of them feature Starfire Tor as the guest.
I was declared dead by paramedics once, but I experienced nothing until I regained consciousness 7 hours later. It was a highway patrolman who told me I'd been declared dead and left there while they helped the people in the truck who hit me. That is one reason why I like to hear of others who have had experiences that confirm there is something after this. For me, it was nothingness, followed by confusion when I came to in the hospital and wondered how I could be there since I was dead. (Time had slowed WAY down as the accident was about to happen and I knew for sure I would die). I knew I was alive, because there is no way they'd have those ugly hospital gowns in the after life.
The only conclusion I can come to is that maybe the paramedics made a mistake and I was not really dead....it would not be the first time they've screwed up. When I get stung by insects, I always pray the firemen will arrive first, since they are FAR more competent than the ambulance paramedics.
