Jada M's Experience

Experience description:   

It was a normal day at work. I went to bed around my normal time. Nothing out of the ordinary. I went to sleep. I remember being in a tunnel. To me it seemed to be earthy, like I were possibly underground. It reminded me of something like a train tunnel. My deceased brother was there. I was wearing the gown I was sleeping in that night. I could see my and my brother's entire body. There was a light at the end of the tunnel. I was running toward the end of the tunnel.

The closer I got, I could feel that the light was God. Almost like the light was communicating that to me in my thoughts. The feeling of going toward the light was the most joyous feeling that anyone could ever feel. There are no words to humanly describe the feeling. It seems to me that the feeling is not something you could ever experience on Earth. My brother was chasing behind me while I was running toward the light. He told me that it was not my time yet and that I had to return. I told him that I did not want to return. I said that I wanted to be with him. He said my family needed me and I had to go back. I continued running toward the light. My brother jumped toward me from behind and landed on the ground, just as he had grabbed the bottom of my gown, pulling me down with him. I remember waking up with my body jolting up from the bed.
