Lissa C's Experience

Experience description:   

YES, I passed through a runnel. I was moving very fast through a black tunnel. then, I saw color shades of vibrant green, blue, magenta, and various colors on each level after I went through the tunnel. Then, I saw a bright white light. The other colors were very inviting and lovely. I wish I would have stopped at at many of them actually to explore their surroundings. I especially felt the green at the last before I entered into the white vibrant light. I looked into the green and I saw grass, trees, and beautiful surroundings before I focused again on the white light. I kept moving foreword, because I was beckoned to keep on moving foreword to this loving light. When I approached the light there was a very nice being right at the tip of the light who asked me " Would you like to come in?"  At first I said Yes. The being I'm going to say "He" ... although.... I don't think he was a male or a female..... "He" was  "both" ... just a "loving" being....

At first I wanted to enter like nothing more I ever wanted in my entire life...... Then, I suddenly remembered my son....

It was interesting because I didn't remember anyone... I didn't remember my husband, my other son, my siblings, or any of my friends on earth. The only one that I suddenly remembered was One of my sons...My most special son. I remembered him more than anything else. Then, I told the loving being that " no, I needed to go back to be with my son" ... He, (the being) was very, very, very, very, happy....

He was filling my being-ness with appreciation and telling me how pleased he was that I made that choice. 

He always gave me a choice. He never said to me that " it wasn't my time" he never said" that I had to go back" he " gave me the Choice". I took the choice. And, he acknowledged my choice with great love and pleasure.

Yes  I didn't share my experiences right away. The only one who knows about these experiences are my husband.
