Experience Description

On the operating table, I came out of my body. I went for a walk and I saw a whirlwind of white light. Then, I am between a border separating the world here from the celestial or astral. I entered in a light that illuminated this experience. It was brilliant and beautiful all along a white passageway. I saw a Jesus, very beautiful and serene. He told me that it is too early for me to be here and showed me my child wrapped in gold. He showed me my husband who was very sad in the room of hospital. I chose to return to help people. (I wrote a book that is due to be published shortly, to help people in the despair.) At this moment, I was projected in my body with great speed.
