I was above my body and watching everything going on in the room. I could see my father at my bedside crying. I was confused as to why I was lying in the bed and suddenly was in a long tunnel with a small light at the end. I started to race through the tunnel at an amazing speed and the light became stronger and stronger. The feeling as I approached the light was of complete peace and love I cannot describe. I could feel a presence at my side on both sides of me. I knew they were heavenly beings.
As I came into the light, I was filled with an indescribable love and peace. I did not speak with my mouth but telepathically. I was shown my life on earth, the beginning to now, and I was shown the impact I had on others I connected to, I could feel their feelings and experiences in how I treated them. I was filled with total knowledge and understood everything. I entered a beautiful garden, the colors and scenery I could never explain. The colors were surreal. I never wanted to leave this place. The peace was complete; I understood my purpose on this earth.
God spoke to me, but I could not see him, I was stopped, if I went any further, I could not go back to earth. I had a choice to return or stay but I wanted to stay, God wanted me to go back and told me my purpose was not finished on this earth, I would have children. I wanted to do God's will. I told God I wanted to stay but in my heart to do his will was stronger.
I knew I would be back; I entered my body quickly like bang. I was in the hospital. I was told I was tied to the bed, as the convulsions were so bad they had to tie me down. The doctors were amazed I made it. This experience changed me forever. I always had faith. Today I can say absolutely God is real, Jesus is real, and love is all that matters!
