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.

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.
