Experience description:  

My Aunt Marica passed back into the light at 3:17 am (Sept. 11).

I woke up very suddenly, completely disoriented as to where I was, but fully awake. The space I woke up in was pitch dark and had no boundaries. I could not tell where I was. No light of any kind was visible. My first super vivid thought accompanied by a huge surge of what I can only define as love energy flowing through me, was 'Aunt Marica has moved back into the light'. I felt light flowing through me and around me. I also felt a massive surge of positive energy flowing through me --- I felt warm, comfortable, very happy. I 100% knew she was connecting with me and letting me know that she was fine and in a good space. I felt her love for me and knew she was telling me she was safe and happy. A few moments (and this I now know means seconds) later I then realized I was at my mom's house --- because the bedroom which has a bright clock radio beside the bed --- had become visible, plus I could see moonlight outside the bedroom window. The room had 'shape', which it didn't have as the experience was happening. I smiled, looked at the time on the clock radio (which again I hadn't been able to see a few moments prior) and noted the time --- it was 3:17 am. I closed my eyes again and made a mental note not to forget the time and just started thinking about whether I should get up and write the time down so that I wouldn't forget the moment, when at 3:22 am the phone rings, it's Nancy (Marica's live in caregiver) who tells me that Marica had passed away 5-6 minutes ago. In one way I was shocked at her call and the information, yet at the same time I was not surprised (because of the experience) and felt relieved that she was no longer suffering.

One important note --- my Aunt Marica had committed to letting me know when she  safely "crossed over" into her new life about a month prior to her passing away when we talked extensively about death and dying...
