Annemarie N's Experience
I was undergoing spinal
surgery through the abdomen when a main artery was cut and I started bleeding -
I was in and out of a coma for a week and only afterwards I remember very vivid
dreams of visiting family and friends in their houses. Colors were very bright
and the voices of those people very clear. They were nor aware of me at any
time. Later when I told them about these visits I described to them the clothes
they were wearing, the food they were eating and what they were talking about.
Needless to say it freaked them out. Nothing like that has ever happened to me
before or after again and I do not believe in playing around with astral
projections and such things.
