In 1958, a woman who only gives her name as Evelyn, was six-years old when she had a seizure.
Some 60 years later, Evelyn has spoken out about her experience where she believes she had a glimpse into the afterlife.
After coming down with a flu when she was a child, Evelyn’s health deteriorated rapidly and she began to have seizures – with her nearly dying as a result of one fit.
The doctors were called out to her home, and this is where Evelyn had a near death experience that allowed her to speak to an angel.
Evelyn explains on NDERF – a website which collects first person accounts of near death experiences – that her ‘spirit’ rose out of her body where she could see what was going on around her.
She says: “I don’t remember what happened directly after that, but eventually I was carried back to my bed. My body was no longer seizing, it was just limp.
“I began to rise above the ceiling and then I went into another realm. There was a lot of light. A young woman with long hair dressed in a beautiful, flowing whitish-blue gown was there close to me. She emanated complete, loving kindness and I thought she must be an angel.
“She communicated with me through our thoughts, not by speaking. There was light behind her and I was so drawn to that light that I began floating toward it.
“She stopped me, put her arms around me which filled me with light and love, and said, ‘It is not your time yet. You’re going to have to go back.’ I knew she meant go back to earth, to my bedroom and my body.
“I really, really, really, did not want to go back. With her, I had no pain. I was filled with love, joy, and light. I told her, ‘No. I want to go with you.’
“She smiled and gently said, ‘I’m sorry, you must go back. You still have things to do’.
“I repeated, ‘I want to be with you.’ She still had her arms around me and said quietly, ‘You will see my face among the Grieved. Then I had a vision.
“I could feel that I was much older and I was in a place where people were milling about in shock. There was rubble and chaos everywhere.”
To this day, Evelyn is still unsure what the mystery woman meant or what the vision represented.
