While my Dengue fever rose I was like comatose, I saw grotesque faces and hobgoblins who wanted; summon me to dance so they could take away the air to breath. I fled into a dark tunnel to hide which suddenly opened in front of me. I went further because I saw light in the distance. The nearer I came to the light, I felt lighter, calmer, and happier - and somehow snug.The Light got brighter, my body felt slight and an overwhelming feeling of freedom and floating passed through me, it was miraculous and I can't forget it. It was a garden made of light.I didn't see a silhouette of people, but I saw light moving. I could imagine them as angels and before I went to step in, a soft voice talked to me that my time was not up and my soul wanted to finish its life-task. A door shut and I was surrounded in darkness again. I was still in this tunnel, but I went out calmed down. I awoke two days later and it felt like awaking from a dream, from each hour to hour I was getting better. Since then I hear voices of souls from other people. I get messages from my ancestors and I feel totally loved and supported.The messages of other souls are always verified. The message I got lead to my mission: to accompany dying children and pass the happy soul-messages from the children to their bereaved and families.
