Details of location of experience and your activity at the time of experience:  Standing at my husband's bedside, watching him receive last rites from a catholic priest.

Was the experience witnessed or experienced by others?  Yes
Describe:  The only person in the room that didn't have the same experience was the nurse, and I'm not sure what she saw.

Experience description: 

      As my husband took his last breath, a golden-white light went from him in a perfect arc to my son, and seemed to explode around him.  After the formalities were over, my friend and I walked the priest to the elevator.  I asked them "Did you see what I saw?", and they both admitted that they had.  Then the priest shushed me up, while my friend admitted that she was glad that I'd asked.  When we returned to the nurse, she claimed she hadn't seen anything, but I don't think she was telling the truth.

Did the voice or sound seem to originate externally, or outside of you, inside of you, or did you not hear a voice or sound but had a knowing of what was communicated?  I knew that my husband, with God's blessing, had given my son a gift of some kind.  I also knew that my gift was the "sight" of what happened, and the fact that my friend and the priest also saw this was so that I didn't think I was going looney tunes.  And so that no one else thought I was going looney tunes.

Did you see the deceased?  Yes

Describe the appearance of the deceased:  He was lying in his hospital bed, and looked at peace for the first time in months.

Was the beginning and end of the experience gradual or more sudden?  The end seemed like a million years of bathing in this special light.

Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.?  Yes
Describe:  It's nothing specific, just a knowledge that cannot be shaken in regard to the fact that one's soul does live on................................

Did you see a light?  Yes

      Describe:  The inner core of the light, and that light closest to my son was a pure golden light, while the outer portion of the light was the whitest white.  The light was in rays, and like an aura.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?  Yes

      Describe:  My friend and the priest both confirmed that they saw what I saw.  I cannot tell you where the priest is, but I do remember his name, and I do know where my friend's son is, and he can contact her. 

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?  Yes

      Describe:  The fact that there is a Universal order, and a purpose is what I came to understand at that moment.  Not what the order is, not what the purpose is, but that these things are real, and that the knowledge of this is a gift in itself.

Has the experience affected your relationships?  Daily life?  Religious practices etc.?  Career choices?  I find that I have no need to prove anything to anyone. The knowledge that I have appears to hold all the keys to life and what's truly important.

Have you shared this experience with others?  Yes

      Describe:  After 15 years of being shushed by a priest, I have only shared the experience with a few friends.  They don't doubt what I'm saying, but few people seem to understand the depth of the unexplainable knowledge that is imparted in such an experience. Within the last 2 days I suddenly found that these experiences are more common than I'd realized and this sharing of the experience is the first really public one.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?  The best part of the experience was the inner peace it's given me, the worst was the priest's inability to talk about the experience.

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?  Yes
