Chris Elinchev was trapped in a dark, tight place, trying to free himself from the crushing weight of a nameless force. At one point it felt as though there was something around his neck, choking him. After finally managing to kick and wriggle his way out, he lay on the ground, battling to breathe. Then a feeling of calm came over him.
"Eventually the sky opened up into a grand, peaceful light grey," recalls Elinchev. "Big beautiful black birds came to greet me, swirling about in breathtaking patterns. It was both beautiful and terrifying, a place I'd never been to before. At that moment I sensed that I had finally been properly born, that now I was fully alive. And for a brief shining moment I felt lucid and everything made sense."
