Catrina P's Experience

Experience description:   

I was happy to see all of them, all. I don’t remember seeing anything displeasing.  I was feeling happy and I felt like laughing.  (I used to laugh in my dreams untill my father died, because it occurred in a very traumatic way for me. Yet after 3 years from his death I start laughing in dreams.)  Somebody was scolding me in a very gentle way, without hurting me at all.  I know it was a male voice coming from one side (cannot tell whether it came from the right or the left)  Only once in my life, they brought me to a ‘sleepy-like’ state. I am not sure if it was at that time when it happened. It was while giving birth... but nothing serious happened. They used the forceps to take my daughter out. Without crossing any boundary, I was suddenly seing very specific instants of my past; some of which I didn´t even remembered (that is what I thought).   

 

I really never knew the day it all happened, since for me it was like another dream in which my brain participated in a much deeper way. That is why I did not take it very seriously. I was surprised to have all this information recorded in my brain. It was the day I told about this story when they informed me that this happens to many people and it is usually because of the NDE. I am happy not to have known about this at that time, otherwise I would have been scared to death.


As the film of my past was coming to an end, I was aware of my return. It was more or less telling me that I should avoid the things that had just been shown to me. It all referred to things I had done wrongly. It was real…I had really done those things !  I sensed I was being given a second chance. All the way through I was aware that it had all been like a trial. There will surely be a next trial, and I will be forgiven again the same way as before. 
This has caused that in life I do not worry much about good or evil. 

When I was a little girl I was horrified about death…Now I am no longer afraid of it.  This does not mean that I want to die.  I consider it two different things

De pronto, sin pasar frontera alguna, ví momentos muy concretos de mi pasado, que algunos ni recordaba ( eso creía).  Todos me alegraron verlos, todos. No recuerdo ninguno desagradable.  Incluso sentía alegria y risa.  (Muchas veces reia en mis sueños, hasta que murió mi padre, porque fue de manera traumática para mí. Ahora parece que empiezo tras 3 años de aquello a reir en mis sueños)  Alguien me reñía de manera muy dulce, sin hacerme daño en ningun momento. Me han dormido en el hospital, una vez en mi vida, y no sé si fué entonces cuando me pasó. Fué en un parto...nada grave. Usaron ventosa para sacar a la niña. Se que era una voz masculina que venia de un lado ( no sé concretar si el derecho o el izquierdo )

Realmente no sé el dia que sucedió porque siempre lo consideré un sueño más, donde participaba de una manera más profunda mi cerebro.Por lo que no le eche mucha cuenta. Lo que si estaba era extrañada por tenerlo todo almacenado en el cerebro, hasta el dia que lo conté y me dijeron que le pasa a mucha gente y que suele ser por  ECM. Menos mal que no lo sabia entonces, porque sino me hubiese muerto del mismo susto.

 Al final de la película de mi pasado, era consciente de mi regreso, porque me decia algo parecido a que evitara esas cosas que me habia mostrado, que todo eran cosas que yo habia echo mal. Eran reales...las habia echo en realidad !  Sentía que se me daba una segunda oportunidad. Y en todo momento sentía que habia sido como un juicio. Que el siguiente juicio, porque evidentemente habria otro....se me perdonaría de la misma manera. Eso ha echo que en mi vida, no me preocupe mucho del bien y del mal.  De pequeña me horrorizaba la muerte...ahora no le temo.  Eso no quiere decir que quiera morirme. Lo considero dos cosas distintas.
