Following a removal of my uterus, the day after the operation, I felt very tired and fuzzy. While I was checking the container that retrieves the result of the drain, I realized that it was filled with blood. I had time to alert the staff. They ran over and I noted that my condition was deemed very worrisome.

The first thing I felt was one of well-being that came over me. Then I saw a white, but not blinding light, intensified. The more light appeared, the better I felt. The light eventually enveloped me like a sheet. As it did, I started to perceive a figure standing at the end of my bed, like a mirage. It was a very tall man who was about 2 meters and who stared at me with eyes as blue as the sky, an intense and deep look that penetrates the soul. This man was of great beauty, his face illuminated by perfect features. He sported a short beard, his hair mingled in the white light.

I fell in LOVE before this being of light. A Love I had never met before (At I write this, I'm crying. Despite the years, that event always moves me just as much). He wore on his left arm a large open book and a pencil or a pen; I saw this object as 'living.' He intensified his focus on my eyes and asked me a question:

'What do you want?' he asked in a soft, audible voice.

'I want time to kiss my 5 children, the time to tell my family how much I love them.'

'What do you want in your life?'

'I would like to understand my mistakes; why so many trials? I would like to understand nature, science, love.'

The man slowly wrote down all my wishes in his books, and said, 'I'll show you your life.'

(It still makes me cry ...)

I saw my mistakes. I saw trees, nature, oceans, sky, animals as they passed in front of my eyes. I understood, or rather I learned as in a lesson; all my senses were awakened and my entire being reacted. In fact, all was LOVE; even mathematics (which was really not for me!)

I felt like I was reintroduced to happiness, LOVE, empathy, etc. I was given a mission with battered women because unfortunately, I was one of those women abused by their husbands. I had no notion of how long both of us spent LOVING one another. It was an unconditional Love without physical contact. It was through all thoughts; in all tenderness, and maybe in all simplicity.

The white light dissipated, then I came back to 'the world of the living' with some violence and pain. I was again transferred directly to the operating room where I decided to let go of a body that was painful to me. I felt myself pop out through the top of my head. I hovered over this body that I no longer wanted as I saw the medical team busy itself in silence. The light reappeared, I followed her but saw nothing. I heard again a question, 'What do you want ?'

I chose to come back to my body although the temptation to continue on this path of Love was attractive.

Experience Description 7606

At the same time that the nurse noticed my state, I suddenly saw at the end of my bed a very white light that seemed alive. Then a silhouette took shape. At the same time, my abdominal pain vanished. I felt total well-being. The silhouette was very beautiful, tall gentleman. He appeared with a big book that he was carrying open on his left arm. He was at least 2 meters tall. He had long, fair colored hair framing a harmonious face. He had a deep look coming from his pale blue eyes. The gentleman had a beard; his outfit looked like a big white coat or a tunic. He emanated enormous Love and understanding.

Telepathically I heard his first question, ‘Who would you like me to inform in case of . . .?’ He questioned me kindly. I replied, ‘Inform my mother, she doesn't know that I'm not well.’ He asked, ‘What do you wish of life?’ I replied, ‘I so much would like to tell my children that I love them! That they should love life. I'm so unhappy.’ He said, ‘Look at your life, see how you can evolve; feel your emotions.’ I then saw part of my life passing by. This was mainly my fears of my violent alcoholic husband, maybe my lack of courage to face the rest. Then I felt strength that I didn't know I had. I felt like a little brave soldier in myself and the desire to make a 360° turn. I felt like the doors of my new life were just asking to open. I felt LOVE, an unconditional love, a state of grace. I had no notion of time passing.

I remember that at the moment of coming back to this world of the living that this gentleman who was full of compassion disappeared ‘vaporously’ with the extreme white brightness.

Each time when a blood bag was influencing my body, my mind went back to the state of bliss. Once roughly stabilized, I found myself in a surgery room, lying flat, with the arms tied up crosswise. I felt that I had to make a decision. The anesthetist saw my tears and assured me that they would do everything possible to get me out of trouble. My only reply was tears, running down my cheeks. I was able to tell him, ‘I want to continue to Love.’ (While writing those few lines, I'm still crying.)

I then felt letting go of this sick envelope that was hindering me. I think that my 'soul' found an exit through my breast; I saw the team silently preparing the instruments in haste. I was above the big lamp that lighted the table. Time didn't count anymore. The light came back, I was bathed in it, alone but not abandoned. I didn't see a tunnel. I took the decision with full determination to come back to my body. I felt myself gliding inside through my head. It was very painful.

My mother came fast to my side, without anybody from the hospital having informed her. She told me that a strange feeling had stopped her in her everyday work and that she had pestered my father to bring her quickly to my side. She felt that I wasn't well. My father was stunned by such determination and did as she demanded.

Yes Surgery-related Life threatening event, but not clinical death Following a hysterectomy, I felt strong pain in my belly and I was really tired. I looked at the catheter drain at my right side and saw that the bag was filling with blood too fast. I had time to inform the medical staff. They noticed the state I was in and then everything happened very fast. There was a palpable tension of all the nurses and doctors taking turns at my side. I was getting more and more tired. I heard a nurse saying to one of her colleagues, ‘We will lose her...her blood pressure is down to 4/12...’ I have a rare blood type AB+

She assured me that no such person was at my side, and concerning the operating room, that what I perceived was correct but that I was supposed being under anesthetic. She asked me if I wanted to talk about it, but I didn't want to. I clearly left my body and existed outside it

Were your senses more vivid than usual? More vivid than usual

Did you come to a border or point of no return? I came to a barrier that I was not permitted to cross; or was sent back against my will Unpretentious, but I knew that I had to finish my life on earth, in proving to myself that I was strong and committed to promote Love on EARTH!

I always loved nature, but now I feel the vibrations of the trees, the suffering of a plant or an animal, I'm sure to get in contact with them

Have your relationships changed specifically because of your experience? Yes I feel stronger, I feel protected, what caused to exchange my life, which was full of violence, for a life on a sailboat in the West Indies. My relationships with others are special, as today I have the impression having proved to my children and parents that I loved them, and now I have this urge to travel the world, to explore nature with no accountability towards anybody. I have this strange feeling that I had left there, where I had to go at the time of this experience. But I try to understand my mission on this earth, if there really there is a mission.

I remember the experience more accurately than other life events that occurred around the time of the experience At the beginning I didn't talk about, and now I find myself years later, talking quite freely around me except to people being mentally fragile, and as if the experience was yesterday, it's inscribed in me like a tattoo on my soul.

Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience? Yes Premonitory dreams, I always felt being a receiver of messages from deceased people, often messages of love and forgiveness. Today this has intensified.

In fact I influenced many battered women, or who had been unhappy in their lives. I wrote an autobiography honoring this experience. It will be published this year.

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience? Yes But I was doubting, with thoughts like, wouldn't it be chemical, the body wouldn't it be going into a chemical phase in order to avoid pain? Or other questions, more mechanical than spiritual.

What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened? Experience was definitely real For me it is quite real, and the concern with that is that I often feel like being in doubles, the terrestrial part and the one that is no more terrestrial, I rather prefer to name it astral. I'm there without being there. It is a situation that sometimes is embarrassing me in front of others; but that I nevertheless love to take refuge.

What do you believe about the reality of your experience now? Experience was definitely real

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience?

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? I don't know if many people lived such an experience, but I have the impression that I had been chosen by this Man of LOVE, in order to make a good being of me. I would so much love to meet people having experienced it, and whose life toppled over in a better dimension. I just tell you: HURRAY FOR LIFE! Let’s not fear death.
