Sarah M's Experience

Experience description:   

My experience was the presence of a very beautiful woman who appeared first by changing a radio station to a country music station. I listen only to rock. we were in a car. She waved above and the roof opened to a clear brilliant sky with clouds of sparkling clarity. It was odd as I had terrible blurry vision.

In this clarity was a brightness of light. Then I was enveloped in a feeling of great incredible love, beautiful.

This feeling was unimaginable to me, a feeling I had no awareness of ever knowing, having experienced an unhappy home, poverty, work stress and an  unhappy marriage.  I never wanted this feeling to stop.

  Unfortunately I had to come back. And get up to go to work. This was merely a dream. I still cannot forget.

  My husband was ill. The doctors had not told him or me that he was dying at the time. He passed 11 days later from complications of Graft vs. Host disease, following a bone marrow transplant for leukemia, at a mere 37 years old. He loved country music.

It was as though I was given a gift to understand what he would be feeling and from that moment I knew he was dying.
