Pronounced Dead for 20 Minutes - What He Saw and How it Changed His Life ForeverMay 29, 2021
I am very grateful and honored today to have Scott Drummond join us. The backstory alone of why we're here today might be something interesting enough to talk about how we ended up here, even that has affected me, but
whatwe're going to do. I actually think he has the potential to really help a lot of people and I'm very honored that he's agreed to be here today. There are moments in some people's lives where they have these big resets, their priorities change or something big happens and it just changes everything, it seems like maybe you've had more than one of those moments in your
lifeand I've been honored to hear a little bit about some of them, but it seems like most people haven't heard some of these stories, so the only question I wanted to ask you is why, why now, why did you feel this was a good time to share some of these really personal moments for you, well
whatbrought to my mind was what's going on right now. with Cova 19 there are so many people out there who are afraid of what might happen to them and for me it's not a fear for me because of what I've been through before, I'll walk by one way for about 20
minutesand see things that most of people don't I didn't get to see when I started thinking after talking to you on the road that day it was how people shouldn't be afraid of death what it did for me when I was 28 it was like waking up and finding out where my values â€‹â€‹are and where i'm sitting with my family and where i'm placed with my father in heaven you know how long i was working for the government i was working with out of town and not spending a lot of time at home and what it did for me was get closer to me family here I am almost 67 years old and I have spoken very little about this because it has meant a lot to me and it is more to say maybe a couple of family members and of course my wife, nobody knows what happened in my mind, it is very vivid every every A day I was on the pistes Park City ski ace and I was having a great time.
We were skiing all day and I was in line for the chairlift and all of a sudden this lady came down and she had her poles waving every which way and she crashed into us on the ski line and well she'll say I skied the rest of the day when I got there , I took my glove off and put it down in the car, my thumb was hanging down and it came off with my thumb completely out of the socket and I knew I had to do something to myself. It started to hurt once I got into that warm vehicle.

You spent all day with your thumb spinning. Yes Yes. vividly i was sitting in the operating room and the doctor put a sheet between me and my right hand and my right thumb was torn and there was a nurse there and the nurse mentioned to the doctor that she had never done a tourniquet before and i don't know very good how to change the valves and a d the doctor said that he had talked to her about this grunting in a situation you have to put a tourniquet right here and you have two valves one is to squeeze it once to loosen the pressure and what happened was that the two had more time to start on the nernst and she did a valve and the pressure started coming back again and she opened the second valve and forgot to close the first valve and all of a sudden I had the feeling that something was going up my arm and it was it crossed my heart and the next thing I knew I was on my body watching the operation, although it was unique because I wasn't alone, I had someone next to me watching and I don't know if this is normal or not but I watched every stitch they put on my thumb i watched i watched the nurse run out of the room saying i killed him and i was sure it put a lot of fear in his mind that what he did didn't work but i said and even though i never saw the person next to me I sat right next to him as if I knew that person and it was all done through the mind there was no speaking I could hear what the doctor was doing but I could never hear mouth to mouth what was being said with the person and there was me and we sat there and watched the operation and I can't tell you how long because there wasn't a clock on the wall or it didn't have a clock on us we saw how serious the doctor was about finishing his surgery at home with almond I saw it cut myself here and here and Tara's tendon I saw him wrap it around my thumb and I started to see him slap it back together something that was supposed to be a very simple operation and not so not so good we finally sat down there for a while and I can remember that I was sitting upstairs I was lying down and how you lay with your arm like this with the sheet here and I was sitting up here watching the surgery and then I saw that I had one in my mind they told me that it's okay, it's you he invited me to go and I remember it so vividly that I could never look back.
I was instructed that he never look back again and the next thing I knew and it was like the blink of an eye. I was standing in a field where he, the person who was with me was right next to me but he couldn't look and I looked to the left and there were some big tall trees and I remember they were the most unusual looking trees on a long trunk with the leaves up and there were a lot of them and then to the right of what would still be to the left of me were wildflowers just beautiful wildflowers and they were waist high and I just remember looking and seeing how beautiful the flowers are because it's something I i really enjoy how yard work and gardening is and i just remembered the vivid colors were just gorgeous and then in front of me and then to the right was tall grass probably waist high and i was just a stand-in there and the next thing i knew the person who had escorted me was no longer there and i was alone but it was so peaceful everything was really what i remember so vividly was i could see a l long way to my left I could see a long way to my right was I was not allowed to look back but in front of me there was a moment that looked like a cloud it was just a white cloud and suddenly in my mind I started to see a video of my
lifeand I saw it from the day I was born until I was 28 years old everything I had done in my life good bad it didn't matter because what mattered was what they judged me for was what I had done and I remember I remember some of it hurt but some of it made me feel good but it was what was there i had no one there to be he was no one to say i didn't do that i didn't do it but there were a lot of things at that point in my life that i was not really that on track in my life the way it should have been was at that point in my life that i was working for t he for the government for the postal service at the time and it was all about getting by making enough money making enough money and i was working i remember in At the time I was working at Jackpot Nevada which is in the middle of nowhere and knowing that everything I was doing was for me and not my family and I think probably from all I saw was some were good some were bad , but I knew I had to do better with my life, I remember suddenly, I was so calm after it was all over, it was nothing real, you know, there are no fake things, there was no, you didn't do this or I didn't do that, I I did, it was all about me and what was so vivid was that it was on my mind.
I wasn't talking to anyone. I wasn't negotiating. I was
deadand I knew I was moving. I was instructed through my mind and that person was not well. xt for him but in my mind to get up and start walking forward and I walked towards this white cloud and an arm went through just this it just passed and I will never forget it was an arm that was strong It was someone who had worked in the industry agricultural where his arms were large and his hands. I remember that we are strong. They were bigger than my hands. and he told me it's not your time yet you still have more things to do I pulled his arm back and I didn't see him again because of the cloud that was in front of me and that time he returned to my body the doctor said there was a war inside my body, the war was that I didn't want to go back because it was very peaceful, yes I remember him saying what was going on, but you know why you would be at that table and I told him that I didn't want to go back was that it was too beautiful for you qu Before I had been there and I realized I had a piece of paper on my chest and I was
minutesand I was gone but I was gone in the most peaceful place I could have gone when they wanted to get me out Connie was in the hallway, I had no idea that something had happened to me, but for three days I had never had such peace in my life as I did.
The peace I had during three days in that hospital is incredible. the bed and the doctor is kind of funny the doctor kept coming over and checking on me to make sure i was ok and he was extremely nice to me he was a doctor scrubs skousen just so you know scott wife connie is seated right away -screen so that don't think he's just talking oh no this is not mine this is my date my wife Connie well we've been we've been married 45 years and this is something I've kept very private and sacred in my life because it meant a lot to me well it
changedmy life it
changedthe way I think about things that change the way I think about my wife we â€‹â€‹are together and we are one instead of trying to be he went on one i would like to try to be one at least i am trying i am not perfect i have a lot to learn in life my life is taking me in a completely different direction since since i was 28 years old it has brought me closer to my father in heaven i know there is a god i know without a doubt one thing i can or i also say i'm not afraid of dying because i know how peaceful it's going to be my thumb works great today i call it my bionic thumb but i love my family i love my wife thank you so much scott for sharing there is so much so much to take away of that only that you are not afraid of dying in the current climate of the world that only if some people could hold on to that and only knew that many people have died in the last two months knowing that this life Isn't that there is more and that it is The calmest thing you've ever felt?
I also thought the idea of â€‹â€‹never looking back was particularly moving, that's something in our lives too. I think we have a lot of baggage and maybe we feel bad about the things we've done. while you were there what we can also remember is that you can always start over not everyone is going to have an experience like that but you can take Scott's word for it as it is and that this life isn't and that there are times when the ones you just have to re-prioritize, reset and don't look back don't look back at what you've done other than use it as inspiration to change your life and do something better so thank you thank you very much. thank you
