My experience happened during the night. I'd gone to bed with my left arm feeling slightly numb and a big headache but I wasn't worried in the least. I told myself it would pass. During my sleep, I found myself in a dark tunnel with a white being who was pulling me from behind. I was moving through the tunnel backwards at high speed. When I turned around to look at this immaculate white being without a face I would see a luminous white dot that was growing bigger and bigger and this being was giving me the feeling that he couldn't wait to deliver me to God or that he was fed up of looking after me (Guardian Angel?). During this trip, I remember that I didn't want to die because I was caring for my seventy-seven year old mother who was very sick at home. I didn't want to leave her alone and I especially didn't want to cause her sorrow. To get back to my journey, when I objected to the idea of dying the voice of God, which I recognized, intervened saying to the being who was in such a rush to deliver me to the Creator, God told him, 'Hey, don't you see that he's not ready to die. Bring him back to his body.' As soon as God had finished his words the being sent me straight back and I got back into the envelope of my body and woke up right away with my heart pounding and sweat all over my body.
