Betty J's Experience

Experience description:   

I had an out of body/ near death experience about 25 years ago, sadly my mum had just died.

On the evening of her wake and on returning home I said to my husband I just need some quiet time so laid on the sofa.

Within minutes I felt my body lifting and then I was rushing through a tunnel and then come to a halt.

I saw Jesus right in front of me carrying his cross.

The next minute I know I went straight back to my body very forcefully.

I came back as my husband was tapping me, I was so annoyed with him as it was such a wonderful experience.

He said that he was worried as I was breathing funny, so not sure if it was near death or out of body.

Lovely amazing I would love to have another one.
