Recently I was very sick, well actually I almost died because I had a very bad fever and chest infection. I was christened as a catholic, I believed, yes, but I wasn't a practicing catholic so no I never really went to church.
Last week I was in bed feeling so sick, and it just got worse as my head was throbbing and I was vomiting very badly, I also had a fever. I was also coughing so much and this went on for about 4 hours when I thought this is it, I am dying.
I just thought I want to die right now I want to give up. Then I took this huge deep breath, I think that was when I stopped breathing and my body was slowly shutting down, when I felt like I was traveling through a dark tunnel, I was traveling fast like flying.
Then all of a sudden I saw this light and it was so bright, the brightest light I have ever seen. I could see myself standing near the light when a hand came through the light and a man wearing a white long cloak had his hand and arm extended toward me. It was like he wanted me to take his hand and come with him. But I didn't take his hand, I could see myself crying and I was saying I believe, I believe, I believe.
The man had a beard and shoulder length hair, his skin was very white. I would say he must have been God or Jesus. He said to me "you are only human" and I have put you on earth for a reason. He said he will never go back to earth as he has been there before. He then pointed and said, "that is Earth" then pointed behind him and said "this is ETERNITY".
His hand was still extended and it appeared that he wanted me to take his hand but I didn't. Then all of a sudden I just jumped up in my bed and took in this deep breath. I felt so SHOCKED and couldn't believe what just happened to me.
To all who read this I can assure you that this was REAL, VERY VERY REAL. I went to hospital and was there for one week to recover. I never take drugs or drink alcohol, I am a 32 year old mum of two boys, and live in AUSTRALIA.
I believe that I was dying, and that I have met God or JESUS, and he offered to take me to heaven or gave me the chance to go back to earth. Obviously I chose earth, my life has changed now as I am so much more tolerant towards people and so much more caring towards others.
