Experience description:   

EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME

I want to share a experience with you that was the most beautiful, joyous, wonderful day of my life, aside from my daughter Kelsie being born... I had decided to meditate one night when all was quite here. The doors weren't slamming shut all around me, pups where asleep all I could hear was nothingness. If you have never experienced this - trust me - it’s wonderful your missing out.

So I'm now on my way into clearing my mind, when a sudden rush of energy comes over me and it feels as if my hair is standing on end as well, I remember I had my hands clasped where I could feel my fingers really well, this was different it where as if it where someone else's hands and fingers, they felt so weird just as the experiences I had when I was a child, I had OBE and never knew what it really meant until many years later.

I could feel myself coming out through my head. I can’t say I actually ever looked down on my body and viewed it, it was like I was aware of it being below me, next thing I knew I was seeing colors swirling by.... I was then viewing a place, one I had never seen before.

It would be hard for me to give you a mental image of the beauty that was taking place here but I'm going to try. The beach was so perfect the water met the sand just perfectly as if it were a puzzle piecing its self together with every small wave crashing in.... The color was so vivid nothing like I had ever seen here before. It was of orangey hues so vivid so admirable. I remember what looked like to be a moon or planet to the left it was almost sitting in the water it was so close.

This planet too was an orangey hue but also a very small amount of light blue lightly blended in the color. This exceeds everything I had ever seen in my life or in a movie. This all was like a dream that I had at one time.

I remember seeing a light coming toward me, it was bright but not like a white bright more of a white with a mixture of yellow and orange mixed amongst it. Immediately, I knew this light was my Dad! We walked hand in hand along the beach talking and catching up on things, although, I can’t remember what all was said.

At this point, it was more like two lights band together holding hands. We talked like seemed like forever but yet there was no awareness of time here. It is hard to picture this, as everything here on earth is run by time itself. There's just no feeling of time there. I truly can’t even explain it myself.

After taking our walk together he and I flew around in the sky playing and dancing as if we where two little kids having the time of their lives! At this point, he was my father. But then again, he wasn't; he was just a child to me when we were playing. We had a blast!

I can’t remember ever having this much fun and feeling this free and full of so much love and peace! When it was time to go, he gently lowered me back down through what seemed to be clouds. It may seem so stereotypical, but that's what happened.

He never said goodbye, but it was more of ‘I will see you later,’ all through telepathy, of course. We never used our mouths to speak…Next thing I knew I was back in my body.

Getting to unite with my Dad in such a way has made a big difference in my life. I had lost him in 1991 and have been grieving ever since. This experience was just astonishing and such a feeling of wonder for me. I now never have to wonder if there really is life after death, I KNOW there is! I have experienced it for myself.

I felt no grief or sorrow after this only love and happiness and more blessed than anything. I have been greedy though and have tried many times to reach him again only to be let down. Maybe this was my once in a lifetime experience with him and I should leave it at that.

I know me and as long as there is a breath in my body, I will continue to reach him every free moment! I get which isn't a lot. Once you have had a taste of this, why wouldn't you want to go back to your earthly existence.

I felt like it was time to share this experience with everyone as I have been holding onto it for quite some time now.

I want to give a special thanks to Karen and Marta who have helped me cope with the loss of my father and started my healing process so that I may continue to live a long full happy life now. The road to recovery from losing one’s parent is a long and hard one. With help of people who truly care about you and your soul it sure does ease the pain and help you along your journey.

Yes when my Dad told me through telepathy that I will see you later but never said Good bye. I was always beside myself because I never got to say good bye but really it wasn't necessary. <3

Have you ever shared this experience with others?  
Yes  I have shared it and my story has went on to be put into two books and one newspaper. I didn't share it immediately . I didn't even remember it until the next day. It was weeks before I shared my experience because for #1 I thought no one would believe me. #2 I thought I would be called crazy. I had this nagging feeling that it had to be shared, my Dad wanted me to share my experience with others to let them know they are still with us. I share because I remember how hard it was for me and the torment of what I went through. If it helps one person in their time of grief it was worth sharing.

What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:   Experience was definitely real   It came to  me just in a rush of a vision and I remembered everything from leaving my body to the vibrations it was amazing.. All I could think of is how blessed and lucky that I am that my Dad shared his heaven I'm guessing it was his place with me. I call my experience (EXPERIENCE OFF A LIFETIME) Because I', not sure if it will ever happen again..

What do you believe about the reality of your experience at the current time:   Experience was definitely real   The reality of it is it is real its more real than me sitting her filing out this questionnaire. Me sitting here now is just a smaller version of who I really am.

Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?   Uncertain   Kind of because now Robert my husband has more to think about and he knows something did happen to me so part of him believes now where before he really did not.

Have your religious beliefs/spiritual practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?   Yes   I no longer believe in a huge portion of the Bible I do not believe in Baptist ways any longer where you cant wear make up and they want you to wear dresses to church. I feel as if it doesn't on the other side no one cares about that sort of thing. I'm very spiritual now so yes it has changed me.

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience?   No  

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience?   NO other than I wish everyone could have experienced it as I did and I cant wait for the world to know the truth.

Did the questions asked and information that you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?   Yes   there was nothing left out.

What could a national organization with an interest in near death experience (NDE) do that would be of interest to you?       If you ever want someone to talk with others on this subject or I would love to be put under hypnosis to be able to go back and describe in detail my experience just in case I left something out and also be able to remember was said to me.

Are there any other questions that we could ask to help you communicate your experience?                        I'm pretty sure you have it covered.
