This happened on a Saturday morning. I woke up with a throbbing migraine what intensified despite trying to calm it. I was alone in my apartment, my husband went to help his sister who was moving. I got to bed and the pain intensified even more.My heartbeats accelerated, but my breathing became slower. It became more and more difficult to breathe. Then there was no respiration at all anymore and I had the feeling that my heart would explode. The pressure upon my thorax was such that I couldn't do the slightest movement, let alone scream. I saw like an immense multicolored iris and entered into. I lost consciousness.Immediately after that, it was the feeling of intense cold that was 'waking me up.' I found myself in absolute blackness. I had an impression of intense speed. Then I saw an iridescent fog that formed a tunnel and I felt a feeling of plenitude and well-being. I arrived in a large park that was illuminated by a diffuse light that was not a sun. I saw groups of people conversing and they seemed in no way amazed by my presence. I also wasn't amazed. I came to a rounded structure whose surface was made of multiple facets in the shape of triangles. I was wondering of what material they consisted as I touched one. It had an aspect of glass, was warmer and softer than glass, even though it had it's transparency. This sensation of volume and touch was showing me that I wasn't dreaming. A door opened. I really don't remember anymore how I found myself in a big hall. It was like an amphitheater that had an immense screen, that was also composed of the opalescent facets. Then the hall was plunged into darkness. I felt surrounded by people that I couldn't really see, but whose slim silhouettes and blue skin, I could distinguish. I still had this sensation of well-being. The screen illuminated and I saw my life passing by. But the life review was not the most interesting thing. It was the scenes concerning the earth that I found most interesting. I saw our earth, or rather scenes that happened on several places on earth. I was in a rage; complaining about unfairness that made poor people starve, while others were cosseted without scruples. This was contrary to my earthly beliefs. At the time I was a communist and strongly believed in class struggle. I heard laughs of the beings surrounding me. They were saying things like:"She really forgot everything""But they are the ones that are rich""You will see later on what we want to tell you."So I learned that our planet would experience very difficult times. Since the planet itself was also a living being, it would follow it's own evolution. The earth would not be sacrificed for human beings. They talked to me about earthquakes; about more and more frequent tornadoes. They also talked about how they would 'get rid' of humans through war and disease. I was also told that the earth serves, and will continue to serve, as a place of evolution and consciousness.I got back to my body and my bed after more than three hours. I was rigid and cold from the feet up to the knees and from my hands to the elbows. My husband arrived home at the moment when I was able to move my head again. My life changed and I became much more tolerant and loving. Joy developed in me and I know that it will never disappear. I passed earthly trials; one of them was surviving cancer. Now that I'm old, I still feel much strength. I learned a lot, thanks to the practice of kinesiology. This helped me, and still helps me, to be able to transmit and give the confidence that certain people are lacking.It's the first time that I'm sharing this experience with other people than my entourage,. If this can help, please use it for the good.Thank you for allowing me to express myself.Kind regards, Murielle.
