Romero I's Experience

Experience description:   

I was in a house similar to the home where we now live (my parents house), my wife and grandson were there, we were sleeping with him because of circumstanaces around the loss of our daughter, and as is the custom the child moves all the time, leaving me only a small space in the bed when suddenly due to the position they were in I was upside down, with an arm supported on the pillow, I felt something going out from above my head, somehow I knew that I was dreaming, and then it changed into a lucid dream, or something very similar.

I remember a couple of experiences that I had when I was little, something similar that allowed me to rise, my head began to buzz and from there the sensation began to spread to the whole of my body, I felt as if my body trembled a little, my legs started to move in an involuntary way, and it was as if something wanted to come out of them. I was anxious I began to come out of myself and “spread myself” around I arose in a transparent body, of blue heavenly light. I saw myself in the distance, I went through the walls, and I began to look for something, I didn't know what it was, maybe the anxiety of the experience stopped me from focusing, I couldn't get up and fly as with the previous times, and I began running through the streets, but to me it was like a parrallel  universe, it dragged me through places, including flat moist grassland, there were little puddles of water, but at great speed and something made me return to my body, which was still lying in the same position, with my wife and grandson at my side, but again my head began buzzing, and I started to feel myself spreading, I felt the tremours in my legs, and i started to see this body, of heavenly blue light that left, I really wanted it, now I had a clear objective, I just did it with the idea of seeing my deceased daughter that had died a little over three months previously. And to talk to her.

Again I passed through the walls, my house continued to look the same as the one where I live, when strangely and suddenly my wife and my grandson were going down the stairs like ours, and I passed by them flying in front of them. They didn't see me, and it was as if I understood that this was the moment to look for my daughter,  I walked around, until I found myself in a cottage, flying at great speed, and I found her. Oh my God! How happy I am! I shouted her name, she seemed as if she didn't hear me. I entered from the back door, where there was an estuary bordering the land, it was a small rural town, I spoke to her and it seemed that she couldn't see me, she gave the impression that she was with her family, her husband was a type of tall man wearing a hat, with chestnut hair, mustache, and something of a beard, quite stocky, with jeans and a shirt, a little girl or boy was there and was running around, they had their appliances and white goods, they were tallking about them, she was lovely, slim, and her hair a little short, and dyed dark blonde, dressed simply with trousers and a plaid blouse, a bit different to her usual way of dressing, when she was alive she was dedicated to art, she was a singer. 

It was the afternoon, I insisted in talking to them and tried to touch her but I couldn't, my hands went straight through her, it troubled me, I looked at her husband, confused and it was as if I blamed him, I tried to hit him, but I couldn't. Nothing happened, I gave up hope, and I fled running towards the door, I flew again shouting “Noooo!!” I was flying so rapidly, that things changed their shape, they turned into coloured spots, and all I wanted was to stop, I didn't want to carry on living, (Maybe I wasn't alive) I began to see a point of light on the edge of my space, I just wanted to go to that point, and suddenly I went through a tunnel, but it wasn't a tunnel made of substances of our universe, it was a tunnel formed by the torsion of space on itself, and the light at the end all the while became greater, and I approached the end of it, a mountain of images of my life appeared from everywhere thousands and thousands surrounded me, curiously I felt good, it was like returning home, a home where everyone loves you, and cares for you. I jumped out of the tunnel, and there were “people”, or presences representing these people, Lots of light, a feeling of being surrounded with the imeasureable, with the infinite, everything around was like a plasma of clouds, lights, peacefulness, and tranquility, that I craved so much, I wanted to stay there, and suddenly I remembered my family in this bed that I had left, I missed them and something told me that it wasn't my time, not said in words, but this was the message “It's not your time” my body felt thrown from the waist, and a very strong attraction made me return, although I wanted to stay in this lovely place, so much mine, but at great speed I came back to my body, and my life, with all it's habits, sadnesses, nostalgias, and despairs...

I awoke in the dream, and I also awoke from the dream, in the same positon that i saw myself when I left my body... Everything was so real, I asked myself if I had lived in another reality, I would have visited another parrallel universe, where my daughter was alive, and where I couldn't interact because I didn't belong to that physical environment, and I would have prefered to end this existence... everything was so real... I spent days thinking about this experience, sometimes I prefer to assimilate it, as a dreamlike construction of something or someone, to teach me that what happens in the process of death and in this way maybe I would be able to apply it to this terrible pain that I carry.

_______

Estaba en una casa parecida al lugar donde actualmente vivimos (casa de mis padres), estaban mi esposa y mi nieto, dormíamos con él por las circunstancias que atravesamos de la perdida de nuestra hija, y como es costumbre el niño se movía a cada momento, relegándome a un pequeño espacio en la cama, de repente en la posición en que estaba, boca abajo y con un brazo apoyado en la almohada, sentí que algo salía por la parte de arriba de mi cráneo, de alguna manera sabía que estaba soñando y se transformó en un sueño lúcido o algo parecido, recordé un par de experiencias que tuve cuando era joven de algo parecido al desdoblamiento y me dejé llevar, mi cabeza comenzó a zumbar y desde allí esa sensación se extendía al resto del cuerpo, sentí mi mis miembros temblando un poco, las piernas iniciaban un movimiento involuntario,  y parecía que algo quería emerger de él, tenía ansiedad porque volviera a salir y comencé a 'desprenderme', se levantaba un cuerpo transparente y de luces azules y celestes. Me ví afuera, salí por las paredes y comencé a buscar algo, no sabía que era, tal vez la ansiedad de la experiencia no me dejaba enfocarme, no podía alzar el vuelo como las veces anteriores, y comencé a recorrer calles, pero se asemejaba a una realidad paralela, me arrastraba por lugares, incluso entre terrenos llenos de hierba y húmedos, con pequeños charcos de agua, pero a mucha velocidad, algo ocurrió y regresé a mi cuerpo, seguía acostado en la misma posición y mi esposa y mi nieto a mi lado, otra vez la cabeza comenzó a zumbarme y volví a sentir ese desprenderme, sentí los temblores en las piernas y volví a ver aquel cuerpo de luz azulada y celeste que salía, lo anhelaba profundamente, ahora tenía un objetivo claro, solo lo hacía con la idea de ver a mi hija fallecida hace poco más de tres meses, y conversar con ella, volví a atravesar las paredes, mi casa seguía siendo muy parecida a la que vivo, de repente y extrañamente mi esposa y mi nieto bajaban por una escalera como la nuestra y yo pasé volando delante de ellos, no me vieron y era como entender que era el momento de buscar a mi hija, recorrí lugares, hasta que dí en una casa de campo, volaba a gran velocidad, la encontré, oh Dios, que felicidad la mía, le grité por su nombre, ella pareció no escucharme. Entré por una puerta trasera donde tenían un estero delimitando el terreno, parecía una pequeña ciudad rural, le hablé y parecía no verme, daba la impresión que estaba con su familia, su esposo era un tipo alto con sombrero, de cabello castaño, bigote y algo de barba, un tanto fornido, con jean y camisa, una niña o niño pequeño estaba con ellos y corría, tenían sus enseres y electrodomésticos, hablaban entre ellos, ella estaba preciosa, delgada, y su cabello un poco corto y pintado de rubio oscuro, vestía sencilla con pantalón y blusa de cuadros, un poco distinto a su habitual manera de vestirse cuando vivía dedicada al arte, ella era cantautora, era de tarde, insistí en hablarle e intenté tocarla y no pude, mis manos la atravesaron, me molesté, miré a su esposo confundido y como encontrando culpa en él,  intenté golpearlo y tampoco pude, no sucedía nada, me desesperé y salí corriendo hacia la puerta, volé nuevamente gritando ¡nooo!, volaba tan rápido que las cosas perdían su forma, se transformaban en manchas de colores, y solo pensaba que prefería que termine todo, no quería seguir viviendo (tal vez ni siquiera lo estaba), comencé a ver un punto de luz en la frontera de mi espacio, solía quería ir al punto, y repentinamente atravesaba un túnel, pero no era un túnel construido correspondiendo a la materialidad de nuestro universo, era un túnel formado por la torsión del espacio sobre sí mismo, y la luz al final se hacía cada vez mas grande, me acercaba al final del mismo, un montón de imágenes con hechos de mi vida aparecían por todas partes, miles y miles rodeándome, y curiosamente me sentía bien, era como el retornar al hogar, el lugar donde todos te aman y te cuidan, salí del túnel de un salto y había 'gente' o presencias representando a esas gentes, mucha luz, una sensación de estar rodeado por lo inconmensurable, por lo infinito, todo alrededor era como un plasma de nubes, luces, tranquilidad y la paz que tanto anhelaba, quería quedarme allí y de pronto recordé a los míos en esa cama que había dejado, los extrañé y algo me dijo que no era mi momento, no expresado en palabras pero ese era el mensaje, “no es tu momento”, mi cuerpo sintió un tirón desde la cintura, una atracción muy fuerte me hacía regresar aunque yo quería permanecer en ese lugar “tan mío”, a toda velocidad retorné a mi cuerpo, y a mi vida, con todos los habituales, sus tristezas, nostalgias y desesperanza... desperté en el sueño y también desperté del sueño, en la misma posición que me ví cuando salí de mi cuerpo... Todo fue tan real, me pregunto si habré vivido otra realidad, habré visitado un universo paralelo donde mi hija estaba viva y donde yo no podía interactuar porque no pertenecía a ese entorno físico, y prefería terminar con esta existencia... todo fue tan real... llevo días pensando en esa experiencia, a veces prefiero asimilarla como una construcción onírica de algo o alguien, para enseñarme que sucede en la experiencia de la muerte y así tal vez logre aplacar un tanto este dolor que llevo.
