Margaret I's Experience

Experience description:   

I had gone to bed after wishing to die and was alerted in a dream state to a vision of an open window with the breeze blowing in and a curtain fluttering back and forth.  This window was not the window to our house.  I was immediately pulled backwards up a tunnel at a great speed.  It was so fast I could not stop.  Then I stopped at the foot of a lighted form that looked like a juke box with many colored lights.  My body seemed like a blob as I peered up at this being of light... 

No words were spoken except in my head and as I felt this being wrap an invisible warmth around me, I heard the following words in my head: "You are alright, you're not through yet in this life and all you have to do is love." 

Bewildered and a bit scared, I wished to return and did as fast as I came realizing that I wasn't alone in this world and that I would be okay.
