Experience description:   

Well, I was about 11 or 12 yrs old when I first had the experience. I had gone to sleep in my bed. As i was falling asleep I started to feel something very weird at the time, almost like I was dying, like my body was shutting down. I then looked down at my body and seen myself sleeping. I got very ,very frightened. In an instant I was traveling through a tunnel. In this tunnel there were streaks of light and the tunnel was wavy like a sine wave. When I reached the end the most amazing thing happened to me which has never happened to me ever again. This is going to sound really crazy, but I seen Jesus. Yes I seen Jesus and He was with his arms open and smiling. He said to me "come to me my son." I can not even describe to you the amount of Love that was emanating from Him. So I went to him and embraced Him, crying because of the Joy I felt. He was soo bright I could only look a few seconds at him without hurting my eyes. I told Him I love Him and He said He knew without moving His lips, but through telepathically. At the time I didn't understand this, I was 11 or 12).Anyway He let go of me and I didn't want to leave I wanted to stay and He said to me you must go.  Immediately, after Jesus saying this, I was traveling back extremely fast, like in a blink of the eye), and I woke up ,crying from Joy,my heart racing, sweating, and breathing very fast.
