Mary L's Experience
On August 25th, I was cleaning my daughters room with her and in the midst of things we started playing with her pollies (very small barbie like dolls). We were sitting on her floor next to her toy box which is in her closet by the door. The room is fair size with 2 captains beds, 2 vanity sets and a stand with a television. These things unfortunately leave little room to play. We just started playing where we were while cleaning. I had been feeling palpitations all afternoon into early evening with sweats and clammy palms. Nothing new, been having for about 2 years now. Then I started to feel a little dizzy like the room was spinning. You know how you feel after you've put your arms out and twirled in circles and then stopped and felt like you were still spinning and your body just leaned in that direction you were spinning. That's how I felt. Next thing I knew, I was so dizzy I had to lean my head back for a second and closed my eyes.
Next thing I knew was this weird thing I'd never experienced before in my life. But it seemed so real but I was not a believer of the out of body experiences. I always thought it was something made up to start a new fictional event people could stir up. Anyway, next thing I knew I was looking down from the corner of the doorway. As if I had been 8 ft. tall and hands on the door trim peaking in from the hallway. I was up so high that I could see everything. Even the other side of the floor of one of the beds that's next to a wall that only has about 10inches of room between it and the wall but I was up so high I could see the floor over their. Then when I got to looking at my daughter I could smell her, see her smile and hear her laughs. I could also hear the tv my husband was watching in the living room. Next thing i know, I'm looking at myself but couldn't hear myself speak. All I saw was my hand grabbing her wrist and looking at her. she made eye contact with me and when that happened it was freaky because I knew what happened but I was awake but it was like I was really there. It's hard to explain.
Since then I have been having a ton of weird, scary and funny dreams lately. Especially recently. Lots. Please tell me what this was and why it would happen. My first thought was that my heart was either going so fast or so slow from my medical
condition that I lost consciousness and got to experience what it was like to see from heaven above or since I've been so worried about not being saved and going to hell that god was letting me know I am a good person and you don't have to be saved to go to heaven if you haven't done wrong to deserve otherwise.

LOCATION DESCRIPTION: Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or amazing creatures? Yes Felt like I was in heaven looking down in the room and seeing what my life is like.
Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different? Yes I could see clearly, my sense was great because I could smell the shampoo from my daughters hair due to her just having finished a bath previously, I could hear everything but myself, as I smelled the shampoo I could almost taste the scent and I can't say about touch because I didn't touch anything.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? Yes i couldn't reach down and touch us and I couldn't go down any further or up any further.
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience? Yes My husband and mother keep telling me I must be psychic because I'll tell them what's going to happen about something that we are dealing with or someone close is dealing with and sure enough, it's true. Not always but a majority of the time. Like this couple came up missing in a snow storm just this month. No one could find them. The police couldn't even track them with their phone calls of being lost. They found the guy but the girl was still missing and I told my mother I bet she was in the ravine and sure enough, the snow started to melt the next day due to 50's weather and she was found in a ravine at a sand company.
Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience? Yes I believe our higher power whatever it may be, will show us who we are if we really doubt ourselves and he will ensure us we are on the right path.
Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? Yes I stay closer to my daughter now than ever. I am worried that something is going to happen to me since I'm getting dizzy a lot so I'm afraid of leaving my daughter behind with no mother to look after her and guide her.
Have you shared this experience with others? No What emotions did you experience following your experience? Fright, scared, worried, confused, yet happy and confident.
What was the best and worst part of your experience? worst was not knowing what was going on and why couldn't I hear myself but did everyone else. best is that I saw that I am a great mother and I do communicate with my daughter in a way of showing her how life will be. and to be a great mother herself one day.
Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience? I am still confused as to what purpose this was, did I really faint or have my heart stop from my sinus tachycardia and that's the few seconds I got to see before my heart rate went back to normal or was it just a religious awakening that I should be saved/baptized. Fear it will happen again because now I wonder if I'm really alive or do we just die and our heaven is to see our offspring continue to grow as if we were their and that's our heaven.
