Experience description: 

At first, I felt a roaring and a ringing in my ears, then my whole body filled with love and it was like I became one with something, like a fusion, and then disappeared. Then I woke up and it felt like I was going, traveling into a tunnel-like room. What I heard was very faint voices, there were a lot of nurses running around and it felt like they were trying to help me. Suddenly I heard someone say it was finished, it's over now, and then I stopped traveling, all was completely quiet and calm and I saw myself lying in a little depression on the floor. I was lying on something soft, I had a pair of jeans on and a mint green T-shirt that were some of my favorite clothes at the time. I felt total warmth, safety, I was filled with love and happiness.

I saw a man standing next to a door, he looked at me with brown, enormously loving eyes that were absolutely radiant. He looked and smiled, laughed and shook his head, like "you're not supposed to be here". I felt some kind of kinship with this man and felt completely loved by him. The only thing I wanted was to stay, but I felt I wasn't going to be allowed to do that. The man had brown hair that was beginning to turn grey, he was middle aged and was dressed in a gown that looked a bit like a dress, in brilliant colors with dark blue bottom and a red and golden yellow and white pattern or details, and he was wearing a necklace with a symbol that I don't quite remember. He reminded me of something like a guru. The room was very bright and the man was very clearly visible. I experienced this place as white and filled with light. All of a sudden I was jerked back to the body, it was a terrible feeling, it felt cold and hard, I just wanted to go back. It was as if what had happened before this experience was like a past life, it felt like it all took place a very long time ago.
