The first thing I see as I step out of the bright light is that I am a little higher than everyone else. I can see all the way to the horizon. In front of me, first is a half circle of forty or fifty ladies. ;he first to meet me is my mama; she was my mom's mom, Viola. To my right was my granny Eddie. Next, was my aunt Jeannie with my great grandmas, her sisters and so on. Off to the left there where Indians dancing and singing to the right both my pops were leaning up against some kind of traditional boat. Then behind the ladies the men like they were waiting for the women to stop fussing over me. Behind them, there were people side by side twenty or even forty wide all the way to the horizon, thousands of people. After being judged by GOD, I stepped out of the bright light and saw everyone. The words out of my mouth to my mama were, 'Who the hell are all these people?' She said, 'What do you mean baby, they are you, they are all you.' I knew that meant that everyone I saw was from the generations before me and all the way back to the very start. The only male I got close to was my uncle Herschel who was pushing his way with force to reach me. I think he thought I wasn't going to be there long.Just before he touched me, my brother found me, rolled me on my side, and in cleared my airway. Snap! In an instant, I was back in this life. Since coming back, my family and I have researched our ancestry only to find out that everything and everyone I saw was accurate.What it looked like for me it was all about who was there but it looked like grassy plains of the US maybe because of the Indians in my blood it was all rolling hills blowing grass with buffalo and Indian ponies running, I am light skinned deep blue eyes. And in my heaven the connection to my native blood is recent and strong.
