Gabriella's Experience

Experience description:   

It was a normal day, I went to sleep about 2 pm in my room, and dreamt that I was dressed all in white, with a robe which covered me from the neck down to the feet. It was made of gauze, my hair was loose and there was a breeze, because I could see myself, my hair and the gauze of the gown moving, although I never felt the movement of the air. I was at the house where I grew up, in the yard at the back, and it was night. I began to float upwards, then started to fly, and when I looked down, I could see the whole area surrounding the house, its streets, its lights, and I began to fly higher and higher, until I could see the stars, one of which, very beautiful, was straight in front of me in the distance. I came nearer to it, and as I approached I felt peaceful and happy. I went on towards it until I entered into its light. Now I was in a tunnel of light and felt really happy. I continued my flight, and further on in, much further into the tunnel, with a bright and beautiful glow,  hands were waiting for me, open, beckoning  together, come, come, then remaining opened. I felt such happiness as I have never again felt, never again as much as in this beautiful dream, then I woke up, the telephone was ringing and my heart was beating very fast, so that when I answered, my fiancé who was calling me said: "What's the matter?" (I answered) "I was just having a lovely dream" - and I told him about it. He gave me some explanation, with a name for such things, I don't remember exactly what, but I have always remained in doubt as to what it was, what had happened to me, since if I was so happy and peaceful, why did I wake up with rapid palpitations?... Now that I read the accounts of other people, I realize that they have been through this as a result of being on the verge of dying, whereas I myself was just asleep. What I do remember is that at the time I wished to die, and was annoyed by that phone-call...

 

Era un día normal, me quedé dormida alrededor de las 2.00 p.m. en mi habitación, me soñé vestida toda de blanco, con un vestido que me cubría desde mi cuello hasta los pies, y tenía un tul, mi pelo estaba suelto y había aire, porque me veía a mí misma, mi pelo y el tul del vestido se movían, pero nunca sentí el aire, estaba en la casa donde crecí, atrás en la yarda, y era de noche. Empecé a flotar hacia arriba, después empecé a volar y cuando miraba hacia abajo, miré toda la colonia de mi casa, sus calles, sus luces, y empecé a volar cada vez más alto hasta ver las estrellas y una muy bonita estaba frente a mí lejos. Me acerqué a ella y como iba acercandome, sentía una trnaquilidad y felicidad. Me seguí acercando hasta que yo entré en aquella luz. Ya estaba en un túnel de luz y yo iba feliz. Seguí volando y allá adentro, muy adentro de ese túnel, con una luz brillante y hermosa, había unas manos esperando por mí, abiertas, a la vez haciendo un movimiento de ven, ven, y luego se quedaron abiertas. Yo sentía una felicidad que nunca más he sentido, más que en ese sueño hermoso, y entonces me despierto, el teléfono soñaba y mi corazón estaba palpitando rápidamente así que cuando contesté, era mi novio, y me dijo: ¿Qué tienes? Es que estaba soñando algo muy bonito - y se lo conté, y me explicó algo de un nombre que tenían (esas cosas), no recuerdo ya, pero siempre me quedé con la duda de qué había sido, qué me había pasado, porque si tenía tanta felicidad y tranquilidad, porqué me desperté con palpitaciones rápidas... Ya ahora que leo las historias de otras personas, me doy cuenta que ellos lo vivieron, porque estuvieron a punto de morir, y yo no, sólo estaba dormida. Lo que recuerdo (es) que en aquel tiempo yo deseaba morir, y me enojé por aquella llamada...

Yes, I was the house where I grew up as a child and the area or district around, all from above as if I had seen it before, and just as I saw it, it is, and as I went higher I could see the whole town where I grew up.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? Yes PUES CUANDO VOLABA MIRABA HACIA ABAJO Y DECIA AHI VIVE TAL PERSONA Y ACA ANDABA EN BICYCLETA Y ACA ESTA MI ESCUELA Y FUI SUBIENDO MAS Y MAS ALTO HASTA VER TODAS LAS LUCES DE CASAS MUY CHIQUITAS.

Yes, since as I was flying, I was looking down and saying, "that's where so-and-so lives, and there is where I went on my bike, and there's my school and I was rising higher and higher until I could see all the lights of the  tiny houses.

Yes, since I was asleep, but the dream was long, though I only slept for 30 minutes.

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? Yes PUES YO ESTABA SOLA Y LE PEDIA A DIOS QUE ME LLEVARA CON EL Y YO CREO QUE POR ESO ME PASO ESO, TENIA PENSAMIENTOS DE SUICIDARME CON PASTILLAS PERO NUNCA TUVE EL VALOR O MAS BIEN LA COBARDIA DE SACARLA LA VUELTA A ALA VIDA COMPRENDI QUE NO ERA LA UNICA SOLA O QUE SUFRIA Y CREO QUE SOÑE ESO PARA COMPRENDERLO Y DEJAR DE TENER PENSAMIENTOS NEGATIVOS.

Yes. The thing is, I was lonely, and asking God to take me to him, and I think that is why this happened to me, I had thoughts of suicide by taking pills, but I was never brave, or rather cowardly, enough to go through with it. When I came back, I understood that I was not the only lonely person, or the only one suffering, and I think I dreamt this in order to understand that and to stop having negative thoughts.

TRISTEMENTE PORQUE CASI LLEGABA LAS MANOS QUE ME ESPERABAN

No, sadly, because I almost was within reach of the hands which were waiting for me.

No. That is, what has happened is that sometimes when I think things, they happen to me later on, but this has been since childhood, such as when Papa fell into a coma and I asked God to grant him 3 years more and that is what happened, he woke up and then died 3 years later... in the same month, 3 years later.
