Sharon Stone believes she has been "blessed" following her brain haemorrhage two years ago (02).

The COLD CREEK MANOR star, 45, has gained a new perspective on life as a result of her near-death experience.

Glamourous Stone says, "I asked the doctor if I was going to die and he didn't answer.

"I started praying for my son and then it happened... I don't know how long I was in that experience.

"It's not exactly like seeing a light as much as a feeling of being drawn to it. I came back from the abyss and I survived."

The experience has given the Basic Instinct actress a different outlook on life.

She explains, "I feel truly, truly blessed. Nothing in life will ever be as important as my son ROAN but since that haemorrhage, life has slipped totally into perspective."
