Experience description:  

I lived alone and was very depressed. I had a strong fear of death. I could not stand to think about my death so one night I asked God to let me know if he was really there.  I asked him to turn the lights on and off or make a book jump off the table; just let me know please as you can.  Guess nothing happened for some reason. I prayed the same thing every night at the same time after about two months.

One night I got very hot so I turned the air-conditioning up on high and lay down on the carpet.  As soon as my head touched the carpet, I was out. I came to in a nice place I can not tell you how good I felt,no words are good enough.   I felt it was dark behind me but very light in front, no sun. About 50 yards from me sitting on a rock wall about 3 feet high was my dead wife. All around was green grass bushes and only one perfect small tree. I took a step towards her. Zoom I was there as I turned to set down next to her. I said hello.  I was floating in something like pudding and I was fighting to stay there it was so perfect but I felt myself coming back into my body and when I awoke it was wonderful I felt so good for the next few hours and had no fear of death I felt like my insides had been cleaned. I believe kept thinking how a baby must feel when first born I know all this is very very very real.
