Beth H's Experience
My experience began after surgery to my left foot to place stainless steel screws in my bone where previously I had fell and broke the foot. I came home around 7:00pm Fri. night 7-12-2002 very nauseated from the surgery. I became very sick until approximately 4:00am in the morning hrs of Saturday. I was so tired and exhausted, I told my family to just let me sleep. I thought I went to sleep.
I was in this tunnel, it was so dark, at the end of the tunnel I could see a bright glowing light which was so bright it was blinding. Coming toward me was something that appeared to be electricity amber and green colored. The nearer the electricity got closer to me I remember being so cold as if I was in cold storage. The nearer the colors of amber and green got to me, I remember thinking "Oh, God This is so warm, please let me stay here." I have never felt so peaceful and safe and so warm. I woke up gasping for air as if I needed oxygen. I was trying to decipher what had happened if anything. I cannot remember how I got zapped from point A to point B. What I mean is: I do not know how I got pass the electricity back to the light.
