Experience description:   

I'd a had a bronchoscopy (I believe the day before) and was in pain.  I tried to sleep but couldn't. My dad read the newspaper sitting next to me. I closed my eyes and without thinking I went into a .... sea of blue with light under behind and in front...all around me.  My pain left as I drifted toward a bright light and saw his hands stretched out to his sides. I knew I had left my body behind. He had no face I only saw a silhouette, and knew it was Jesus. I knew I was with him, but remembered my mom. I felt I couldn't leave her back on earth and Jesus said "Everything will be okay". I was in my body again and was so cold. The pain was so unfriendly and ever since I feel all bound up in an uncomfortable body. It's so cold here even in the hottest month. .
