Adam H's Experience

Experience description:   

I was working outside in an extremely hot day.  I was working with yard equipment and had stopped to take a breather.  I was beginning to get dizzy and started to hear my deceased mother's voice saying, "Hi, Honey!"  This voice seemed to be coming from my 10 o'clock position.  Just after that I felt pulled out toward that direction.  I popped thru what seemed to be a small portal and I immediately saw my deceased mother, deceased 2nd wife, and deceased best friend.  The vision was SO real.  My vision was very much clearer there than anything I could see here on earth.  I briefly looked at all three of them separately, trying to absorb what was happening.  My mother then repeated what she had said earlier, and I drew my attention toward her.  She had her arms outstretched toward me.  It was at this time It had dawned on me that I must have died and got scared and pulled myself back into my body.  The strange thing about the whole experience is that my human body had never fallen to the ground during this experience.
