My earliest memory was just before birth and suddenly indescribable
light and whirling around. Indescribable harmonious melody, peace, oneness with
all. Communication was extremely fast like a vibrating buzzing sound within the
all engulfing light and a total understanding of the purpose of the event. The
event was moving so fast I asked to "please help me remember".
I am 70 years old now.
Throughout my life the experience has continued through lucid dreaming and
talking with deceased relatives. When I say "lucid dreaming" I mean "coherent"
conversation with real people. I've spoken with my Mother with much apprehension
because I knew she was dead. So I asked her, "Mother, you know you are dead
don't you? She said "so...what's the difference?" She has talked with me about
how she felt about my sister and me and the good times we had together. The
lucid dreams always started with a ringing phone and she was on the other end.
My Grandson died in an automobile accident at age twenty...killed instantly. He
was a difficult child with many problems. I dreamed of a house and saw him
walking out the door and he came toward me and took off his baseball cap and
said "Grandma, I always knew you felt I wouldn't make much of myself (he had a
sad look on his face) then I heard a familiar voice (my Mother's) say...."I'm
home" and my Grandson turned and walked toward the house.
What ever happened to me was long, long ago but I will never forget the
"feelings" which were indescribable and an indelible stamp on my soul. I've had
many surgery's with anesthetics but I keep going back to my birth as the
beginning of the experience and I distinctly remember asking to "please help me
