Olga K's ADC
I was awake at my mother's bed at 1 AM in Argentina: all the lights were OFF Two weeks before I travelled from Australia to spend time with my dying mother, she was in a hospital near her house. My mother died that day 11 of February 2009 at 1.30PM. I went through photo albums, walk through the house, only my father was asleep in the next room.
I was laying on the top of the bed looking at the window when a force came in (I only can describe as an electric force, full of life) it touched my face and it was warm, it was inside of me and around me.
When I turned my head I could see the reflection of the bathroom light now ON
I went to the bathroom
to see what happen and the 3 phosphorescent tubes (which they did not work for
months) were on, the light in the ceiling were intense as when we look at the
sun. I was standing at the bathroom door shaking, I could feel the force in me,
and I asked please mum do not scare me, which I regret because a few seconds
later I switched off the lights, laid back in bed, I could still feel the force
in the middle of the room, then she left.
