Experience description:  

It was October 1991; I don't remember the day, around 11:00 pm. I got into bed and closed the light, although I wasn't very tired and thought that I might have difficulty falling asleep. Suddenly I felt as though I had left my body and I was standing in the most beautiful green plateau surrounded by incredibly beautiful mountains. I have never been to Ireland, but the area reminded me of travel pictures that I had seen. I knew that the area I was on was several miles high and If I walked too far to edge of the green area I could easily fall down the cliff. There were beautiful grey stones and moss everywhere. Then I saw that my father was walking toward me; he was only about twenty feet away. He looked wonderful and was wearing the same outfit that he had died in (a pair of light-colored jeans and a turquoise sweater.) I could feel his sweater on my face and smell his cologne. He was smiling and happy and looked wonderful! I kept asking him how he was (he had died suddenly of a heart attack while walking with my mother and I was concerned that he "wasn't ready" to die.) He kept telling me that he was "great." As he hugged me and reassured me I began to see other relatives that had passed standing around us...my aunt, uncle and grandmother. there were some others behind them; however, I was focused upon my dad and the family dog, Charlie who was running around. My father told me that I had to go, and I said that I didn't want to leave him. I looked a little behind him and I saw a little baby crawling on the ground. My father turned to look as well and when he saw her he picked her up. I asked who she was and my father said: " You'll meet her someday." She was Asian and beautiful (In 1996 I adopted the same little baby from China.)

Then I asked him if my mother would be alright without him and he said yes that she would. I asked him how much longer I would have with her before she died and he said:" I can't tell you that. It's not for me to say." I kept pressuring him as I was very nervous  about her health...she was a heavy smoker. He finally said "9 years." My mother did die 9 years later, in September of the 9th year after my dad died, one week to the day after his birthday.

Then he turned and began to walk away with the others. He said goodbye and told me he was very happy and that we would be alright. Then, I saw my body lying in my bed; I was moving towards the bed from the ceiling. I feel as if I was violently thrown back into my body. I noticed right away that my heart was racing and I was extremely hot. In fact, I could feel the heat radiating from my umbilical area through the covers. When I lay my hand on top of the covers, the heat was incredible coming from that area. I was scared and was afraid to sit up as I thought I might get sick. I eventually got up and washed my fact and drank some water and went to sleep. I have never had an experience like this either before or after that time.
