Experience description:   

By the clock it was exactly 10 minutes, but it seemed as if I was gone several hours.  It took two days to get back feeling normal.  I was traveling on the freeway and became overwhelmingly tired.  I couldn't even keep my eyes open.  So I rushed home and got in bed.  I closed my eyes and heard someone running on the roof top where I lived so I called the police.  The police came and found no one so I went back to bed.  The next thing I know someone crawled in bed with me and was leaning over top of me.  I was so frightened you cannot believe.  This person put their hand on my chest and then I was really scared out of my wits.  She said don't be afraid I am Finetta.  I said, (I don't know why) I am going to open my eyes and she said that is okay.

Well I opened my eyes and there she was.  She had long black hair and a black dress on and some sort of medallion around her neck.  There was a man and a boy on a sofa at the bottom of my bed and the room wasn't even the same as I went to sleep in.  I asked who she was and all she said was that she was a spirit.

She asked me to come with her so I followed. We seemed to be in this hospital or boarding house.  We went down this long hall and entered a large room with several people in it.  They seemed to be unfriendly, but asked what I was doing here.  They kind of jeered at me and made fun of me.  They said, why is she 5% man and the rest woman?  Well, she and I went on to this office.  She let me in the door and it was a small plain office.  No pictures on the wall and one large window to the right.  A man sat at a small plain desk with papers on it.

He began to talk.  Now I don't really remember anything much of what he said except a few things, but at the time it was such a revelation that I was looking for paper to write down things he said so I could remember them.  I remember he said that there would be ear marks or things to look for to find the path and he told me what these things were.  He finished by saying "You haven't done bad, but you could have done better."

Finetta came back to get me and she took me to this locker.  In it was a purse and a small suitcase and a set of keys.  I asked if I could look inside and she said yes that these were my things.  Well I looked inside the suitcase and found my old shoes.  Then I looked inside the purse and found the set of keys.

Finetta then took me by the hand and walked me outside.  We were in some sort of city.  I asked her if I could walk up the street and she said, "yes" you are free to go where you want".  So I walked up the street and found this big tree at the top of the hill it seemed I was on.  There was someone standing under it and I asked, "Can I eat some of this fruit?"  They said yes.  Well I took this thing that looked almost the shape of a pear, but much larger and it was yellow and I bit into it.  It was very juicy and tasted very good, but not sweet.

Then I asked this person if I could walk on further into the city and they said yes. 

Well I began to walk to the right and it was still sort of up hill.  At first I was putting effort into it and began to almost fly in speed.  So found I needed not to work so hard at it.  I spoke to someone a glowing figure in a small hut type place, but just vaguely remember that but they were reassuring.  I went on after that and saw three men.  People would not talk to me in general.  They sort of flipped me off and went there way, but these three stopped and would talk.  I found out when I opened my mouth to speak words that they heard me.  I mean I did not have to speak the words I just had to think the words and we conversed. 

I asked them where I was and I don't remember what they said. We spoke of several things, but cannot now remember what was said.  All of a sudden I said I have to go and I put my hand over my heart.  At that moment I was back in my bed where I started from hearing this buzzing noise and feeling as it were a bee in my heart.  I was thick and groggy for quite some time. 

I tried feverishly to tell people about it all and tried, but the further I got away from the experience the less I remembered and no one wanted to hear about it.  So I gave up trying.  So I am taking this opportunity to share it with others. 

I heard of this site on the radio.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?     No

Many things I learned by talking to this man, but when I awoke I could only remember one thing he said.  You haven't done bad, but you could have done better.

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?          No

Did you meet or see any other beings?           Yes, I think I covered this in my story.

Did you experiment while out of the body or in another, altered state? Yes

Well as I said, I thought I had died and when I was under this large fruit tree the person standing there I asked if I could see my cousin Noreen.  They said no, that it would be too upsetting for her.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Yes

The medallion that Finetta wore, I saw that.  There has been a few times I was watching television and a scene or item appeared that I was suppose to be looking for.  Or even out when I met someone, it was the person I was looking for.

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?          Yes

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?   Yes

As I said by the clock I was gone 10 minutes, but it seemed like hours.

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?    Yes

I came away with a better sense of direction.  I really loved the man that interviewed me.  I mean he was unspeakably kind and gracious. I felt more confident in myself and less lost.  I could make more clear decisions.  I felt I had a higher purpose.  I felt special and cared for.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?             No

No I felt completely free and settled after the interview.  It was like I knew what I was going to do, but in truth I didn't know what I was going to do.  I never sensed I had a choice about going back.  I didn't want to stay.  It was lovely and all, but I had things to do.

Did you become aware of future events?       Uncertain

Somewhere deep inside of my there is a knowledge of future events and sometimes they come to mind and I tell them to people.  They think I am trying to be a prophet or something and make fun of me.
