The last words I heard were, we don't think she is going to make it.
Next thing I remember I was in a dark tunnel with a light at the end. I was compelled to go to the light. When I came into the light, there was a being of light. It was the most peaceful feeling I have ever felt. More peaceful than I can put into words. The being told me I was HOME but that I needed to go back because he had some work for me to do. He said I would not understand the meaning of the work until I went back. He showed me what it was like to have a peaceful world and that we can attain that peaceful world if we have faith and help one another. He said I would come back here and help with this work. In time, I would remember who I really am and what my purpose is on earth. After my work was complete I would come back home. I agreed to come back and help.
It has not been easy to come back to this world and all its pain and suffering. In fact, it was a very painful experience to come back. It was like a cruising feeling or of an awareness of feeling the material plane. I came back with no fear of death and a huge understanding of life in general and what my purpose is on this earth.
