Experience description:   

One average evening I had gone to bed. The next thing I know I was returned to my sleeping body. I was instantly awake and alert and knew I had just returned from this extraordinary experience. The first thought I had was "W-O-W"! Oh my gosh!!  I was at a place that was space, filled with light. From afar my eyes were watching me (in light form) communing with a brilliant Light Form. This Light Form and I were communicating our pure Love for each other. No words were exchanged. This was done telepathically. Light filled all space. This Light Form was revealing Itself to me. I understood I was being blessed to "Know" this. I don't know how long we were communing because there is no time there. I was then placed back into my sleeping body. 

I lay there in awe. I lay there wishing I wasn't returned.

My attitude towards life changed. I'm happy to be alive, but I'm willing to return to the Light any time. I'm not afraid to die because I "know" the other side and what's waiting. I know all humans will return home to the Light.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       My relationships are deeper. Life is deeper. I'm very much more aware of the fine detail of life and savor it all. I'm more alive and my spirit is free. I still claim no religion. I'm just "is" and content with it. I'm just "being" in life. I accept life.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Yes, I'm much more spiritual and in tuned to life and people.

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes

Three years passed before I shared it with anyone. I felt it was my sacred blessing, but knew one day I would share it . Finally, I told my husband. He just listened. I don't know what he thought. Over the years I shared it with a few chosen. My pastor grandfather said it was a revelation. There were different reactions and comments. One dear friend was ecstatic and listened carefully and asked many detailed questions. At the time I didn't understand her deep interest, until when I finish sharing with her, she gave me a book to read. I think the title was Saved by the Light. Similar things happened to me that were in the book.

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  I was exhilarated with love and joy. I yearned to go back. I was overwhelmed with feeling alive, really alive. It was almost unbearable goodness! I was ready to do whatever I was expected to do, BUT I didn't know what that was. I yearned direction.  I also kind of felt let down because I was missing my mission, if any. Then I accepted that my direction will come to me in due time. I've been fine ever since.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      Everything was the best part, down to the minute detail. My spirit was free. OK, the best part was communicating telepathically with the Light Form. The Love the surrounded and entered my core was nothing I ever felt before. I can't seem to find the human word to define the Love as it is in this other place.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        Yes, After I was returned to my sleeping body, my 5month old fetus was hard as a rock! Super HARD! It was obvious to me that this was not normal. I wasn't alarmed. I knew it would be okay. After about 40 minutes or so it returned to normal.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         No

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               I believe so.

Please offer any suggestions you may have to improve this questionnaire.    No. One thing I'd like to add is...why did this happen to me when I wasn't near death.  Also, I like to say is when my only child came to me at age 12, he sat me down and was concerned he felt different from other people. He said he couldn't put his fingers on it, but that it was very real and he sometimes feels strange about it. I often wonder if my experience has anything to do with he feeling this way. He's now 25.
