Why is she on the site?
She had both an out-of-body experience and what was possibly the start of a near-death-experience.
Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker – Marla Martensen
Whilst in Spain on a film shoot, Jane Seymour had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic that almost killed her and thereby led to an out of body experience, one in which she said she saw ‘the white light’ and from the corner of the room, the doctors trying to resuscitate her. It was a life altering experience for her. She wrote that she realised when you die, the only thing you leave behind is the work you have accomplished
and the only thing that is important in life is the people you love..... and love.
