I had been feeling dizzy for two days before I had an out of body experience in my home. I could observe how I was dressed. I had already had a severe asthma attack, and then I felt dizzy at about 7 pm. I was taken to the clinic, and I stayed like that for 30 minutes. The doctor checked me. He said I was dead and that they should take me to the morgue to do the autopsy required by law. My husband asked the doctor not to send me there, to check me, stay close and let me stay in observation to see if I responded to any movement. The doctor agreed, thank goodness, and, yes, I came back 30 minutes later. After this, they took me home, and I slept until the next day.

What life changes occurred in your life after your experience? Large changes in my life After that experience, everything was very normal, but it has happened to me on 3 occasions. I see and feel many things around me. I have very pleasant, beautiful dreams. During the last one, I was going to address a large crowd of people who were wearing white and blue tunics. Then I was called, they knelt before me, and I could see how people were putting their heads on the floor. I was telling them, ‘Don’t do it, who do you think I am, nobody, please stand up, I have no money, I am very poor, please stand up.’ This dream was beautiful. People did not do what I asked them and kept kneeling with their heads on the floor. I don’t know what this could mean, but it surely touched my soul. I also dream a lot about my husband; he is gone now for 4 months. I keep dreaming that he comes back and says he loves me, that he only loves me and that he cannot live without me. Oh, how I hope this is true, because I feel so lonely without him. We had been happily married for 10 years, but, you see, he is gone, and I don’t understand why.

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience? In my very personal opinion, we have to be loyal, patient, tranquil, honest with each other. Don’t hate anyone, be friendly, loving. We should live our life peacefully, because we should not expect to accelerate human events of every human being on earth. Everything has a reason why it happens. We should not accelerate the precious thing God has given us, our life. We come from him, and we will return to him. He is love, and that is why most of the beings on this earth were born. That is why we continue to be here, until he disposes of us. We are dust, and to dust we will return.
