EXPERIENCE DESCRIPTION:

I was having surgery to remove a fibroid tumor, first time surgery.  I was worried about being laid up for several weeks, unable to exercise.  I was also hungry before I went into surgery, and was concerned about not being able to eat.

When I woke up after surgery, I was in pain like I had never experienced. It was constant, and very distressing for me.

The next thing I knew, my 'spirit' came out of my body, laying on its side, doing leg lift exercises. Then it mentally said, 'Poor old tired body...'  I mentally said back, 'I'm not that old!'  Then it sent me a feeling of LOVE, pure and unconditional, like nothing I have ever experience on earth.

The next thing I knew, it was standing at the tray table at the end of my bed, eating these bright colored foods, that sort of looked like child's blocks of different shapes. I remember a nurse coming in, and I could see her pass behind my spirit, as it was transparent.  That's the last thing I knew, as I went back to sleep.

I feel like my spirit was taking care of me, doing the things that I was worried about - exercising and eating.  But let me know those things weren't really important.

It was a transparent white, human shaped figure, reminding me of the shape of an Oscar statue. It was flawless, beyond perfect. I say 'It' because it was neither male or female, just 'Spirit.'  That was especially interesting to me, as I hadn't had a preconceived idea that spirit would be asexual.

When I woke up again, it was gone. I was upset, because I wanted to experience that feeling of love again.
