An Angelic Visit

I remember I was having a horrible panic attack -- the worst yet not too long after my father died. I was in bed and it was dark. I was shaking in fear. Suddenly there was a luminescent being at the foot of the bed. I believed it to be an angel.

I remember the being was brighter than anything could possibly be, brighter and purer light than sunshine. I was initially afraid, but it told me not to be afraid. At that point I suddenly felt no fear but the most amazing feeling of love. I can't describe that love. It is a kind of love I don't think exists here on earth, at least not in that powerful of a form. I also felt completely and absolutely at peace. I think he then told me some incredible things that I can't remember. The angel even told me I wouldn't remember most of what he said or even specifically what he looked like. After that, he told me to go to sleep and he would stay there and look after me until I fell asleep. Almost instantly when I laid down I fell asleep.

In the morning I woke up and knew I hadn't dreamed the experience. It was more real than any other event of my life. Since then I have found myself reflecting on the experience often and very glad for it but it also left me with so many questions about spirituality and the afterlife. I also find myself afraid to tell many people for fear they will think I'm nuts. I'm glad to be telling you.

The Light Within

My father had died a few months before. We had a many issues between us, and it was very difficult to let him go. I refused to leave his side while he was dying, as if to make up for all the things that happened while he was alive.After his death I experienced grief. Wow, I never knew it would feel like that! I forgot how to do my job or relate to other people. I had a hard time acting and feeling normal, but I managed to get by.

Everything is Love

One evening, I was talking with a friend on the phone who knew that I was interested in exploring different spiritual practices and religions. He said, "Hey, you should check out a Society of Friends meeting. They don't have any sermons and just meditate for an hour or so together." I was intrigued and after we hung up I looked them up on the Internet. I found out that they were what I knew as "the Quakers" and after only a few minutes of searching, came across a posting that explained a style of meditation they do called "Looking for the light within." I printed it out, took it to my bed and read what it said. It was very simple: Get into a comfortable position, close your eyes, focus your attention on the darkness and look for a light within. When you see a light, focus on it. So that's exactly what I did.

NDE in Pre-Term Labor

I was in the hospital with pre-term labor. The physician on duty administered turbutaline (brethine) intravenously. Within seconds, I didn't feel right, grew very hot and had barely said "Something doesn't feel right" when I blinked out of my normal version of consciousness and blinked into the void. The medication stopped my heart (I later learned). I was in a vast dark place that was quite peaceful. I wasn't sure where I was but knew that I was fully conscious and no longer in my body. I tried to wiggle my toes and fingers but discovered I had none. I knew I existed in only pure consciousness.
