Sandra S's Experience

Experience description:   

She was in incredible pain.  We tried to take a walk but only made it across the street to a lawn under a street light.  I saw a white substance coming out of Shasta and floating slowly out of her and moving to the left and then being pulled up into the sky.  It was thick and white.  I didn't want to touch it because I didn't know what it was and it scared me.  I thought maybe it was her pain or she was hot.  I was awake and conscience and I saw it with my own two eyes.  I love Shasta now and will forever.  I just want to know what it was that I saw.

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

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Uncertain      There was a White substance emitting from her body that was as white as milk.  It floated slowly from her and up and to the left.  I looked up to see where it was going but once it was out of the light of the street light I could not see it anymore.  It was a heavy white and thick substance.  I wondered if she was dying at that moment and leaving her body.  I wondered if it was the pain she was feeling coming out of her, I wondered if it was heat and the street light was making it visible to me.  The white substance came close to touching my lips and I jumped back.  I didn't want it to touch me for some reason.  I stood there and watched it for about 10 minutes.  This happened less than a week ago.

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?          Yes            Shasta was a White Shepherd/Husky mix.  She did not bark, she howled.  She was about 90 pounds and quite a big girl.  She was scared of gas pumps because she thought they were monsters.  She also thought newspaper stands were monsters and anything that moved and made noise such as a windmill, etc.  I tried everything to ease her pain.  She would kiss my face for my efforts.  She went with me everywhere.  Her pain would make her wake me up in the middle of the night to take walks to make it feel better.  I would fall asleep on the sidewalk when she found some nice grass to lay on.  She tried to fight it and so did I, so long and so hard.
