Lidia's Experience

Experience description:   

In that night, I remember, I told sb’s fortune before I went to sleep. I do not remember what the consultation was, I just know that I did it and following that, I went to sleep. When I went to sleep, I had a very strange dream. I remember it like if it was yesterday, so I will tell you the story as it happened.

I remember that I was going upstairs speeding up and all was in darkness. I knew that something was following me and because of that I could not stop or turn back. So I went up and up until I arrived to a building’s roof. The surface was in square and there was not any kind of handrail or banister. There was just fog that impeded me to look ahead. So I asked myself “What do I do? Do I wait until what is following me reaches me or do I throw myself to emptiness?”  Without doubting I threw myself to emptiness. Suddenly, I appeared in a kind of corridor that followed me direct to a hall.  I define it like that because I did not see the limits of that place, I just know that the light that was there was pink.  At the end of the hall I made out a group of souls that were “walking” in the distance. During all my stay in that place, there was a presence that was accompanying me. I knew that was female, not because of her appearance, but because I perceived her. I remember that I did not know who I was neither what was that place.

 I forgot my name, my beloved and fellow beings and all I was in the reality. The only thing that I was thinking and transmitting was the phrase: “it is just that I have to go back”, but I did not know where neither why. The presence that was with me was not any death being that I could recognize, but her company was so pleasant. The only thing that I was telling her was: “It is just that I have to go back.” I remember that I was communicating through my thoughts and that I knew that all the presences that were in that place think and feel. All of us were vibrating in the same intensity. All was perfect.  I felt the essence of love. My soul was in peace. I felt like never before. Because I did not stop repeating the same words, the presence that was with me told me “you will have to talk about that with Him.” Suddenly, He appeared in front of me. This presence had Biblical image. Mature man, long gray hair, with beard and a white tunic. His presence transmitted me something marvelous even more that the other presences of that place that I described you. Mentally I told Him “It is just that I have to go back” and He turned His hands to himself like if He was reading the story of my life and He told me: “It is just that you have to go back, the doors are open for you.” Then I asked Him: “Does she can come with me?” and He answered me: “No, she has to wait here with the others.” And He disappeared and I appeared in the corridor that I described you before. I stopped some instants and I thought: “Do I tell Him that I do not know the way, to see Him one more time? But I told myself: “No, because He knows that you know Him very well.” It was so incredible to be close of that Being that I asked myself that question. Following that, I woke up. During all the night there was not any interruption or other dream. When I woke up it was day. My sensation when I woke up was that that night I crossed the boundary, with no doubt.  

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Yes. The part that is most difficult to express is the perception. What I felt during my trip, was unique, sensational. All that I perceived was the universal love, the connection of all souls, the unity, and the distance…

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?   No      

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness? I do not understand the question. When I was there, I forgot completely who I was. My soul did not have worldly identity; I was part of a whole.

How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal every day consciousness and alertness? More consciousness and alertness than normal

If your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience was different from your normal every day consciousness and alertness, please explain:  I had never experienced such a big luck, or that kind of telepathy, or that perception.

Did your vision differ in any way from your normal, everyday vision (in any aspect, such as clarity, field of vision, colors, brightness, depth perception degree of solidness/transparency of objects, etc.)?  Yes. The beings did not have a defined color or an image. They collected the color of the place where we were. They were almost transparent except for the presence of the Biblical Being that I described you in the narration.

Did your hearing differ in any way from your normal, everyday hearing (in any aspect, such as clarity, ability to recognize source of sound, pitch, loudness, etc.)?
 Yes. All what happened there was communicated by thoughts, telepathically.    

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? Yes

What emotions did you feel during the experience?  Distance, like floating and distance. We did not walk there; we floated and appeared just by wishing or thinking that. The group of souls that I described you in my narration did not have feet. They were just staying close to the ground like floating from one side to other. 

Did you pass into or through a tunnel or enclosure? Yes. The corridor or tunnel was dark but because at the end was the place or hall there was not dark at all. Instead of that it was penumbra (semi-darkness).  In that stretch, the pink light was reflected. In the other side of the tunnel, where I came from, was very dark.

Did you see a light? Yes. I described above. The entire hall was illuminated with a pink light.

Did you meet or see any other beings?  Yes. I described in my narration. I did not meet any of those beings. They were not relatives or someone who I could remember in my life who died before. My grand father was not there, hall or level. However, I met them there and I knew how they felt because we were part of a whole.

Did you experience a review of past events in your life?    Yes. I did not review any past events of my life but the Biblical Being did it when He looked at His hands like if they were a book (the book of my life), and He said: “It is just that you have to go back, the doors are open for you” and He disappeared.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?  No      

Did you see or visit any beautiful or otherwise distinctive locations, levels or dimensions?           Yes. I visited the hall or level that I described you. There was not vegetation, just that pink light that I described. Also it did not have limits.

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?   Yes. That night I went to sleep around 23:30 or 24hrs, and I woke up at 10 in the morning. I did not have any other dream. I did not wake up during the night. It was like if I stop existing during that time. The experience that I remember did not last a long time, if I try to bring it nearer to a real time I could say that endures not more that 30 minutes. However here in my life passed a long time, like 10 or 11 hours.

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?     Yes. The experience itself was like a special knowledge.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? Yes. I crossed the boundary when I jumped at the emptiness and I did not wake up when falling. After that is when I appeared there.    

Did you become aware of future events?       Yes. A recent example could be a premonition dream of the tsunami that happened in Indonesia and Thailand. One week before the tragic event, I dreamed exactly with it. In a different order of things, I have discover that I can accompany the ones who pass away, people who are very sick, on the point of pass away. I accompany them in a return trip to the origin. I took their hand and I transmit them love and peace at the same time I visualize myself in the tunnel or in a corridor. Once there, I visualize some being that they could know or not, so that being could accompany them and then I leave.
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience you did not have prior to the experience?     Yes. I described above. I believe I accompany in trance to people who pass away. I have done that with two people because I have not tried that with someone else. There has not been any other circumstance. I have discovered it so recently. I could say that the signals I received have showed me the way. It is so strange to talk about this, because I am not sure yet about it. It is strange.

Have you shared this experience with others?  Yes. I shared at once. And all the people who knows or do not know about these themes had believe it without doubting at any moment.

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience?    No      

How did you view the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:            The experience was definitely real. It has been past 12 years and it looks like if it was yesterday. This experience marked me for ever. I will never forget it.

Were there one or several parts of the experience especially meaningful or significant to you? For me the critic part was to think that I did not remember my identity or my beloved and fellow beings. Also that I was so pleasant there that could stay there without any doubt, if it has not been because in my thoughts was the phrase: “It is just that I have to go back.” And what if I repeat that and I stay there? I will not remember anything of my life. And that scares me and makes me sad.

How do you currently view the reality of your experience:   The experience was definitely real. It has been past 12 years and it looks like if it was yesterday. This experience marked me for ever. I will never forget it.


Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience? Uncertain. I do not understand the question. Maybe yes, I do not know.

Have your religious beliefs/practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?            Yes. I am investigating about these paranormal themes to find more answers and to increase my knowledge about these themes.

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

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?   No

Did the questions asked and information you provided so far accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?         Yes. All I can say I described it before.

Are there any other questions we could ask to help you communicate your experience?   No
