Yvon R's Experience

Experience description:   

I'm asleep, then I feel something happening to me... I remember asking myself the question: What's happening? What's happening? I had the feeling that what was happening to me was new, unprecedented, exceptional... as if, for about ¾ of a second, I had become a big question mark. No more control of myself. I am moving at a crazy speed, not touching the ground, with no impulse or pressure that I could feel, no weight, then I stop... I am nowhere... before me is a white, translucent being, who takes me by the hands... it bothers me a bit, but I feel such welcome... it's indescribable. Then slightly to the right a  diffuse white light appears... I somehow arrange it ( I don't know how) so that the person and the light coincide... this is happiness... I look at the light... I am...(this is where words fail to describe it)... I can ask for nothing more than this... but I'm still "conscious" that I am probably going through a dying process. So then I shout No... no... no... and I wake up in my bed... I'm flabbergasted... I notice my blood is not circulating normally... I've had a problem... of what sort, I don't know. I have already read about this kind of experience but I did not believe that I would go through it.

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Uncertain Je peux très bien la décrire en mots, mais les mots peuvent être insuffisants.

Uncertain. I can easily describe it in words, but words can be insufficient.

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event? Uncertain J'ai compris rapidement que j'étais dans un processus de mort et malgré que l'expérience était l'expérience la plus fantastique que je n'ai jamais vécu... j'ai crié NON NON NON

Uncertain. I quickly understood that I was in a dying process and although the experience was the most amazing one I have ever had... I shouted NO NO NO.

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness? Je dirais à la fin... puisque mes connaissances personnelles m'ont rappelé que ce que je "vivais" était un processus menant à la mort. J'ai protesté... C'est difficile à répondre. Un instant avant j'étais en train de me complaire dans un bonheur parfait... mais étais-je plus lucide?

I would say at the end... as my personal awareness reminded me that what I was "living" through was a process leading to death. I protested... It's hard to answer this. One moment before I was enjoying a perfect happiness... but was I more lucid?

How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal every day consciousness and alertness? Normal consciousness and alertness

If your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience was different from your normal every day consciousness and alertness, please explain: Je dirais à la fin... puisque mes connaissances personnelles m'ont rappelé que ce que je "vivais" était un processus menant à la mort. J'ai protesté... C'est difficile à répondre. Un instant avant j'étais en train de me complaire dans un bonheur parfait... mais étais-je plus lucide?

I would say at the end... as my personal awareness reminded me that what I was "living" through was a process leading to death. I protested... It's hard to answer this. One moment before I was enjoying a perfect happiness... but was I more lucid?

No Je crois n'avoir entendu quoi que ce soit.

No. I don't believe I heard anything at all.

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? No

What emotions did you feel during the experience? Une immense tendresse, une tendresse totale, une acceptation sans condition, une chaleur humaine... de fin de chemin... de fin de conflit... les mots me manquent... j'ai appris durant cette expérience... un sentiment nouveau... espéré mais inconnu... maintenant je sais que cet état existe.

An enormous tenderness, total tenderness, unconditional acceptance, human warmth... of the end of the road... end of conflict... words fail me... I learned during the experience... a new feeling... hoped-for but unknown... now I know that this condition exists.

Did you pass into or through a tunnel or enclosure? Uncertain il y eut un déplacement très rapide... sans toucher au sol... mais je n'appellerais pas cela un tunnel.

Uncertain. There was a very rapid displacement... without touching the ground... but I would not call it a tunnel.

Did you see a light? Yes oui, blanche diffuse, chaude... irrésistible... je sais ça fait cu cu mais il faut le vivre... pour comprendre.

Comment vous dire avec le plus grand sérieux du monde que j'ai été comblé par la vue d'une lumière blanche diffuse... mieux vaut me taire...

Yes. white, warm, diffuse... irresistible... I know it sounds crazy but you have to live through it to understand.

How can I tell you with a straight face that I was overwhelmed by the sight of a diffuse white light... it's easier to keep quiet about it...

Did you meet or see any other beings? Yes blanc, translucide et ça été la rencontre la plus agréable de ma vie... encore là mieux vaut ne pas en ajouter... qui me croira... comment expliquer l'inexplicable. Je ne connais pas cet être, je ne me souviens pas de ces très du visage... et pourtant... j'en suis encore et pour toujours... très ému.

Yes. White, translucent and  this was the most happy encounter of my life... again it is better to say no more... who will believe me... how to explain the inexplicable. I do not know this being, I can recall no details of a face... and yet... I am still, and will always be, very moved.

Did you experience a review of past events in your life? No non, là contrairement à ce que les gens racontent souvent, je n'ai pas vu se dérouler ma vie...

No. Unlike what is frequently narrated, I did not see my life unfolding...
