Paula's Experience

Experience description:   

I left our world . I viewed this and felt this physically. I felt less gravity, I saw bright light. I floated upward. I was not in the hospital nor was I ill. my first baby who I waited for until I was 28 was about 2 so I was 30 years old , In our new home for a year and I had this amazing experience. I went to sleep as usual. A vivid dream like event took place. I floated up in warmth and this lasted for a long time. I was far beyond home before the bright light found me a home at the landing of a feeling of unconditional love. I didn't understand it all until last week. 22 years later I realize that the feeling I felt is all the love from my family and friends that is there for me. I can not wait to go back. I miss all so much. I am sure that there is more than what is here for us. It would do us all well to remember the love. Express our love and be loving. It is important.
