A description of the experience

The Art of Dying – Drs Peter and Elizabeth Fenwick

Tina Myer who has lived in Australia for the past 26 years, and has family living in London, told us what happened the night her brother died:

One night in 1991, while sleeping, I was suddenly awoken – but not in the normal way where one wakes up and is drowsy. From being fast asleep I was suddenly wide awake, and as my eyes opened in the total darkness of the room, there, coming towards me quite fast from the foot of the bed, was the face, in white, of my brother back in London.

This was not a dream or my imagination. I awoke my husband to tell him what had happened.

I subsequently learned that my dear brother who had caught a cold which turned into bronchial pneumonia, had died. I can only assume that he was at the time he was slipping away, thinking of me and I guess that by his thinking of me his soul was instantly with me.
