Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
I was on holiday in a small holiday camp with its own swimming pool. A friend asked me to go in with her. I was not a strong swimmer, but this girl didn’t tell me she couldn’t swim.
She jumped in the deep end, went down and called for help. I tried to save her, but she pulled me down with her. What happened next was remarkable.
All my past life and incidents passed through my mind in a flash, things I had forgotten, right back to about 2 years of age, when I was given a rag doll. Then I entered this dark long tunnel, which had this bright fantastic light at the end. It took me a good while to float to the top but I made it and entered this wonderful garden, full of flowers, grass, shrubs, but it had no sky or birds and was completely empty.
But the peace of it all and the brilliant light, much greater than sunlight and darker yellow, more of a gold. I wanted to stay, it was so peaceful.
The next thing I remember was a man over me. He had pulled me out of the water and was working to bring me round.
