Nan A's NDE
After some time traveling in this manner I realized there were two women with me, an older women on my right shoulder (who looked very much like the Guardian Angel I saw at age five) who was very calm and quiet and a middle-age women with dark hair on my left shoulder who was upset and kept repeating, "It's not time! This is not the right time, oh no..."
Then I began to see a pinpoint of light in the distance and realized we were traveling very rapidly towards it. As we did so the light became incrementally larger and larger. The color was a very special glowing white, very pure.
As we got very close to the light I saw tens of thousands of beings dressed in white gowns all facing the Light and singing a music I had never heard the likes of before. They were in the service of The Light and apparently "singing" praises to The Light. The Light was filled with the most extraordinary, overwhelming and indescribable feeling of LOVE. Then I came directly in front of The Light and The Light spoke in a man's voice, firm and direct, saying only, "Go Back!" I was very cocky and said to The Light, "What do you mean? I want to be here! Hey!" The Light then spoke again and said, "Go Back! You have a Great Deal To Learn." I instantly was shocked into recognizing I had no choice and filled with sorrow at leaving, rapidly flew back, re-entering the top of my head, became conscious in the ambulance and heard the attendant say, "She' going to make it we hope."
I have encountered that same feeling only once again, in the presence of a living Sufi Master.
this experience, which took me a long time to make sense of, I began to have
vivid dreams that came true, had strong premonitions. My life was hardly easy
before or after but eventually became curious about religious philosophy and
started a spiritual Path in 1989 which I hope to remain on the rest of my life.
Thank you, Anna.
