Experience description:

He got up off his lounger and floated away, he didn't use his walking stick as he would have done. 2 weeks later I was standing outside a shop and this wee old lady said to me your father is standing behind you, I said I don't think so he died 2 years ago and she said I know, you seen him recently and he wasn't using his walking stick.

I suddenly was in this tunnel like a vortex and there was a pinhead of a light at the end of it and I felt it was taking ages to get to it, suddenly I came out of the tunnel and it was beautiful, I arrived at white pearly gates and all these people behind the gates had their arms stretched out , I felt they all loved me, I never knew them, I got to the entrance and a voice said to me come in. I said I cant I have to go back and look after my husband, I awoke with a jerk and got up out of bed, may I say I used to get blue lips and out of breath when I ran for the bus but that disappeared after that. I also had never heard of pearly gates before
