Tina's Experience

Experience description:   

This was the third time in my life that I have had this experience and each time the experience gets longer and more detailed.  I go to sleep.  Then, not sure how long after or when, I awaken floating in my bedroom toward a white light in the upper left hand corner of the top bookshelf, near the ceiling.  I get pulled through but it almost feels like I've gone through a door.  I enter a large room (very large), all white walls, a light that calming and peaceful all around me, really high ceilings, crystals, flowers and its beautiful.  Then as I float through the room I enter another room, also large, but with a white window frames and a view of mountains.  Then I float into another room with white windows and a view of the ocean.  It was like my home was getting larger and larger but I was floating.  Then I started to float into rooms of family members that I knew still alive.  I floated over my cousin Katie's room and saw her sleeping.  I couldn't talk though.  It was like I was watching her but she didn't know I was there.  Then I floated over my cousin Sue's bedroom and she was sitting at the edge of the bed worrying.  She does this thing with her hands when she worries and that's what she was doing. I remember thinking that she was worrying for nothing.  But then I floated into a room with a stairwell and my grandmother (who died 2 years ago) was at the bottom of the stairs walking into another room and she waved at me.  At that moment, I remember thinking "oh goodness.  I'm on the other side.  I can't be on the other side yet.  I have a 13 year old niece who will be angry with me if I go.  So, I started to think about how I could get back.  I started floating backwards.  But, it was a strange backwards.  I never actually turned around.  I just felt like I was being pulled.  And the next thing I remember is waking up and thinking I should have stayed there because it was an awesome feeling.
