Sue H's Experience

Experience description:   

I had gone to bed alone, and always stood and looked at a little church across the street before I closed the curtains. I always smiled because there was a lovely star shining above the church in the sky...

I awoke at approx 1 am to the sight of a beautiful and fairly large area of light in the corner of my bedroom. It was so bright, and yet I was able to look into it without hurting or squinting my eyes, and I could see that the light was running into the shape of a tunnel. I wasn't afraid and immediately began to smile because I knew instinctively that this light was of goodness and it made me feel so lovely. I was unable to move, and then felt myself being picked up so gently and lovingly and carried into the light. I could see myself from above lying on the bed still wearing a lovely smile, and then I heard a voice. Even though I understood what it said, it was just to beautiful in its tone to be human. The voice said to me, "Your my child and I love you" and then I felt a little quick kiss which I knew was to my spirit, I knew that in the light I was of spirit, and immediately after this I was carried back to my body....
