Dying and TB
Type of spiritual experience
A description of the experience
Dr Karlis Osis From Out of body experiences - David Black
Osis was born on a farm in Riga, Latvia, the day after Christmas 1917. His father, a strict rationalist, did not believe in any superstitions, ancient or modern; there was no talk in the family about paranormal phenomena.
As a child Osis contracted tuberculosis and was bedridden at the same time an old aunt who had suffered a stroke lay dying at the other end of their farmhouse. One day Osis, a feverish fifteen, lay resting when he suddenly saw his room come alive with light.
‘Not a light you could read a paper by’ he said ‘but that’s the best way to describe it. The light was in me too. I’d never experienced anything like it. I was amazed and filled with great joy. I couldn’t understand why I was so happy. The joy had a quality I’d never felt before. And then somebody walked into the room and said
‘Auntie just died’
