Mari C's NDE
The time seemed inconsequential and I was uninterested till a separate space opened in the room and I left. A hazy journey (seemingly short) and I was enveloped in light & exquisite & infinite love. By now I recall this as an ageless soul. I felt as best as I can describe in a state of total bliss, once again there is no language to convey feelings. There seemed to be a collective consciousness who welcomed me but at the same time conveyed the knowledge that I was the one responsible for the decision to stay or go back. I recall these decisions not as a small child but a person with accumulated knowledge to evaluate the choice and make a decision. The decision to return was based on the knowledge that I was not finished in my life and there were things to accomplish and fulfill. There was no distress at the thought of return and once the decision was made there was no more recall.
These experiences have stayed crystal clear and as fresh as when they occurred.
