Cathy N's ADC

Experience description:  

Out of the corner of my eye during my meeting I saw a light, it appeared to be coming from the fluorescent lights on the ceiling in the room, so I ignored for a brief moment, but something made me look again and when I did I realized it was now at the level of the table where I was sitting with other nurses at this meeting. I watched it come towards me it very bright shaped like a half circle with points of light radiating from it, it continued to come towards me, I watched as it surrounded the person sitting next to me on my right it went from the top of her head down to her back, kind of outlined her, she never turned to look at me, and I kept thinking that others must see this too, but they did not, the person who was talking during the meeting, I kept thinking she was going to say something about this light, she did not. I closed my eyes and I could still see it and then I opened them and it was still there, I should say that it was vibrating very fast. It came to me surrounded me I could not see it but I felt the vibrations and when I raised my eyes I could see the movement of the light and when I looked down at my jacket right where my heart is there was a bright cobalt blue light, I touched it. The light did not move to the person on my left, it came to me and then it was gone. I know that it was meant just for me, and I was excited to share it with those I trust to believe. My daughter and I both attended a hospice meeting for potential volunteers in this room where I experienced this ADC.
