Margie's Experience

Experience description:   

(Sorry for my English)

This is something I've remembered my whole life. It's not really a near-death experience. I remember my own birth.

I remember that I was in a black space. I was waiting for a dream. That dream was about my life. I wasn't born yet, but I looked very forward to it. Then I got the dream, it was about my future. I saw events that were going to happen in my life and people I was going to meet. It was like watching a movie. Then a 'voice' asked me, do you want this life? I said yes. He said, are you really sure, it's going to be very difficult. I said: whatever would happen, I want this life. It was not really a voice, but sort of a thought that spoke in my head.

Then I had to wait for a very long time. Everything was black around me.

The next thing I remember, I was just born. I felt cold and very scared. I saw blue and white colors, but I didn't know what it was.
