On both occasions a being of white light appeared to me, took my hand, and took me to a door that opened on its own. As a child, I remember I had to climb three steps to arrive at the door and in the last experience I didn't see any door. I went directly to the place of light where you don't step or walk - you float.
In the second more recent experience, I remember first seeing a dim tunnel where I saw various deceased people I knew, one of whom touched my feet. I left those people behind in order to ascend accompanied by the being of light and go to the place where one floats. I did not see anyone there but I felt caresses on my head.
I also remember that my family members were in the hospital room crying and I, despairing at seeing them suffer, wanted to return rapidly. I remember on both occasions that the voices of the doctors and nurses resounded in my head, and while I was ascending, the voices faded back but I continued hearing them. (I don't know how to explain this. It's as if you were a million kilometers away but you took a carried microphone in order to hear). In the second experience I remember seeing my husband all upset and praying that I would not die.
I also remember a place where there were objects, people who looked like angels, animals and plants. The strange thing about all this was that EVERYTHING had life and eyes. I also saw beings dressed in black capes who, when they saw the being who was holding my hand, bowed their heads - as though they could not look at his face - or perhaps out of respect.
