Flora J's Experience

Experience description:   

I had devoted the entire day to planting lawn, I was in a relaxed, happy state during this time and was pleasantly tired and ready for rest at the end of the day. 

As mentioned above - I was just drifting off to sleep when I felt I was being lifted out of my body that was at rest on the bed. 

I was then elevated up, up, up into a void until I was conscious of a bright light. I was then encapsulated in this light and a profound feeling of total love filled my every sense. 

I did not remain in that state for long and was soon falling back to my bed.

I was so filled with this love I called out - "I love you". 

My partner awoke - pleased with this announcement - but the revelation was not for him. 

The experience was something that has remained with me all these years and something I will never forget.
