Holy Presence

One night when I was 50 years old, I was sleeping in my bedroom. Suddenly, I woke up with a terrible pain in my chest, more than I can explain. I felt like my heart was filling up with a notably violent pressure until it exploded.

Immediately, I saw myself flying in a direction to my interior at an unthinkable speed and soon my trip continued in a dark space. It was a very remarkable realm without the limits of earthly life. There was a sense of freedom and no fear. I perceived a holy presence very close to me. I said, "Lord will I go home now?" He answered, "No, it is not your time. Your mission is not complete. You have to return." Immediately I saw my body at a long distance very well and a powerful spiritual hand that touched my chest, exactly over my heart. Immediately it began to work again. In less then a second, I returned to my body again. During a couple of days, I had some pain in my chest, but it disappeared. Later, I visited my doctor for a heart examination and everything was okay.

This experience changed my life deeply. Fear of death disappeared. My conception about life and death changed. I got a new purpose in my life: Live for God and for human beings. I'm very thankful for each day I live.

Boundary Between Darkness and Light

The anesthesiologist showed me that the line was in a blood vessel and she would have to retry it.  At that moment, I saw my blood pressure drop to 40/20 and I knew what that meant. I felt myself starting to fall over. At the same time I saw a boundary between darkness and light appear.  I started to rise above the dark boundary and go into the light.  The most interesting thing was that I felt no pain.

My Grandmother's Prayers Saved Me

I had a seizure that caused me to code (no pulse or heartbeat).  The nurses called rapid response code and I was once again taken back to the ICU.  When I got to the room with, machines connected to me, is when I started to drift from the world.
