Experience description:  

I was home alone with my Doberman. We live alone. My only biological child lives in another province

It was around 9pm. Usually the time I take my medication for acid reflux. I was watching a movie and got up and sat on the side of the bed to take my medication (prevacid).The next thing I know, I was looking down at myself from somewhere up above but can't say where. I saw myself as I really was. I looked so tired and looked like I aged a lot since my husbands death. Wherever I was, I cannot say where and I don't know if I had a body or anything. I was looking down at myself and I can't say for how long because it wasn't like time existed. This is so hard to put into words. The next thing I experienced and I don't know how I knew but wherever I was looking from, the feelings in my heart were hitting me in my tummy and I felt it and without words, I knew what it was. It felt like a rock hit my tummy, then these emotions started hitting my tummy and like I said, I somehow knew what it was each time it hit. There was loneliness and  worry, pain, tiredness, stress, love, honesty, caring, scared, frustration, anger, regret The only thing I didn't have in my heart was hate. After that happened, I still don't know if I had a body and I don't know how much time passed but it was like I was free. Like I never existed or had no feelings, I was light and happy

Again I don't know how much time passed when I sensed my husband Lloyd beside me. I didn't see him but somehow I knew he was there. This is something that still bothers me to this day. He filled my tummy with sadness and I can't figure out why he has sadness. I always thought of him as an angel without any sins because he never did wrong to anyone and always helped. After that I sensed my dad who had passed away in 1996 and then I sensed my only daughter who died in an accident when she was 13 in 1991. Her presence wasn't as strong. The next thing I knew, there I was sitting on the side of the bed. I'm the type that questions everything and it all has to add up so I was lost. I couldn't believe what happened and to this day I still can't believe it. I just sat there going over and over in my head what just happened

When I opened my eyes, there was a boy sitting at the foot of my bed. He was young, in his early teens and I don't recognize him but he was talking to me and kept pointing towards the left of my home. He had on a few pounds and had fair face and black hair and he had on a striped nylon t-shirt. He had one foot on the bed and one on the floor. I don't know what to make of this.

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               Yes     Except for the fact that I know when, what was revealed in my heart, There was light and I existed and was void of any emotions other than being free, as though I never existed on earth

Please offer any suggestions you may have to improve this questionnaire.    Did you have a body?? I find it hard to explain how I felt after I was shown what was in my heart. I don't know if I was flying or had a body. All I know is that for the 1st time in my life, my mind was free of worrying about the family as a whole such as siblings. Being the youngest daughter, my mother had all my sisters 1st and then my older brothers and then me and 3 younger brothers. I was always and still, the only one that would help my family for anything. I can't say no to them for money, groceries, etc... I'm the only one to make anniversary parties, birthday parties...etc.. no one else even tries to do so
