Experience Description

I was in surgery when something went wrong. I 'popped' from my body and was met with a bright light. This light gave me unconditional Love, and explained I had to return as I had three children to raise. Without words, I was told many mysteries of the world. There is no hell or heaven, there is just experience. No good or bad either! I had been taught wrong by Religion, and I had to return to find truth! I knew nothing about reincarnation and karma, and the Spirit world was to teach me to do it right! I had not yet 'Mastered' myself.

I wanted to stay with this 'Presence' as I loved Him more than my family. I was popped back in my body in pain. I tore the needles out, and cried for days. Then I began to hear a ringing in my left ear and that was how I became intuitive. I could read astrology, learned in dreams. I am very spiritual now, and live each day like my last, though I do not fear death!
