I remember finding myself in complete darkness and going up towards a light. I was floating in the air towards the light like a puppet and I had no control over my body. I still wonder if I had a body because I wasnít feeling anything physically. The most notable fact is this infinite love I had for everybody, this serenity, this peace of mind. I was ďLOVEĒ, there are no other words to express it. I couldnít tell the difference between my wife, my daughters and the rest of humanity. I was feeling great, going towards the light, spinning slowly and listening to amazing music I had never heard before. Then my youngest daughter, who was playing in her bedroom with her sister, said: ďDaddy, come backĒ. My ascension ceased and I came down a little bit but then, I started going up again. Once again, my daughter said ďDaddy, come backĒ and then, everything stopped and I woke up.
I donít know what happened that day but it never happened again. NDE?... I donít know because it was a period where I was doing a lot of sports. Dream?... I donít believe it; it was too real. Anyway, if death is this kind of love, I am signing up right now.

Have you shared this experience with others? Yes I told my wife right away. She listened without judging or mocking me but itís difficult to make your own opinion or blindly believe someone who tells you this kind of experience without having living it yourselves.

Never heard the beautiful music, never had the pleasure to not feel any pain.
