left my body and flew to a place which was still, as if
in the gravity of a first floor, before beginning an escalation
into the gravity of life. It was a dark dimness.
with some beings that told me I was in a total risk, vital,
transition, but I could ascend further still and talk with
someone who would decide if I would come back to my body
or not. They said that the more I would ascend, there would
be tremendous experiences and the possibility of coming
back would decrease.
It was probable
that the same beings who were talking to me now would bring
me back. It was like a train station where many beings chattered
and the colors of that dimension were brownish. Further
away there were grayish entities that were helped by guides
in order to definitely leave their terrestrial life. There
was not any true color besides the tones from black and
brown to white.
I saw people
I knew on Earth who greeted me and continued their ascension.
told me I was in the threshold of death. I wondered if the
persons who were dying and leaving their bodies in that
moment, knew where they were.
that accompanied me were kind, tactful and VERY COMPLIANT,
but impenetrable when certain questions were asked, and
when they did, they answered with only a smile. The communication
was by telepathy and they knew instantly what I was thinking,
but their answers were essential, concise and certain.
were very calmed, unadorned and with a tender sense of humor.
It was then that the judgment began - only I was the one
who judged myself.
they considered everything was evident, they allowed me
to understand all the contradictions, actions, guilt and
non-guilt which I was feeling from the events of my life.
They comforted me with precise words and calmed me. When
I felt within myself a violent dialogue, justifying or blaming
myself, they made me understand that it was all within the
game of evolution and that in the depth, the events of my
life were intranscendental.
Then I had
the sensation that I was still in a foggy place near Earth.
me I could take the decision to continue, but it was with
a maximum risk for my physical body or life. Then, identifying
myself with my Diego ego in the earthly realm, I accepted
to continue since the guides were willing to accompany me.
I worried because of the risk. Nevertheless I accepted discretely
and humbly, although with the haughtiness of my Earth identity
that wanted to have the experience. At the same time my
cosmic conscience allowed me to take the decision without
We then began
to ascend at great speed without friction or effort, as
when one is falling but instead ascending. I was in a state
of reverberation - hearing a zooming sound and feeling a
little dizzy as though in a car at great speed.
then seemed to have disappeared. In that moment, I understood
my panic. I asked myself if I could resist the situation.
with a great scandal of voices, I began to judge myself,
to blame myself, to make decisions that belonged to their
own code of existence. In that moment, everything was valid
and excusable because it was understood that my own position
was a small humble position in an open game of evolution.
If other proposals seemed more valid, they were humbly accepted
because in the depth, there was no real guilt.
cultural, legislative and theological ideas exploded within
me, the answer of the guides was "intranscendence" and they
pronounced that word with a smile. All the actions I considered
so important were not so.
my mind was allowed to rest in a quiet place in order to
further ascend through a translucent tunnel with a light
that seemed rather a yellowish opacity. Then I saw many
beings, some ascending, some descending. Two of them were
known to me on the Earth realm and I had not seen them for
more than 20 years. I also met people unknown to me then,
whom I met many years later in their bodies on the Earth
realm. I asked one of the two persons I did know, what he
was doing there, and he told me he had had a very serious
health problem, and almost died, but the health problem
had already been solved by the doctors. This is the reason
he was going back to his body. Nevertheless, another friend
who was a friend of my family for many years, was leaving
the Earth realm in a definite way, so was I told.
some guides to take the friend who had been ill, back to
Earth through a tubular shape in descent. I also observed
other tubular shapes through which other souls were ascending,
and among them, the lady known to me and my family whose
body had died. I inquired if the lady could go back but
they said her time was over and that she had definitely
left her body. I felt the energy of the lady perturbed,
because she was confused since she did not know she was
dead, but I avoided meeting her. In that moment my guides
lap started in which the path was transparent, silent and
compliant. I felt the pleasure of having my conscience in
total calm, together with the tender but distant company
of the guides and other entities which I could not see.
I saw another path where all the dead members of my family
appeared, among them my father.
I then entered
another stage with a moment of unconsciousness, but I recovered
quickly. It was as though I would have crossed a purifying
sauna, plunging into unconsciousness but I soon noticed
my consciousness was intact.
I had undertaken a risk of no return and with repentance
asked to come back because I knew I had already crossed
the threshold of death. In that place, everything was brighter,
although still not so much. I felt that only the identity
of the affections I had for my family on Earth, motivated
me to come back to my body.
I had then
a slight, but vital sensation of unrest and anguish, because
I again understood I had traversed the threshold, so I asked
my guides for an answer. They told me that the decision
did not depend on them anymore because we found ourselves
in realms that were not of their reach. The answer made
me feel dazzled. I asked them if they could keep on accompanying
me because I wanted to have a dialogue with someone, and
they kindly accepted. I felt a nostalgic abandonment. I
later had the sensation that they took my hand.
We then shot
ourselves out at a great cold, mentholated speed with acute
cosmic sounds, pure and deep echoes and the brilliance of
a light - so white, almost metallic - in which I felt
we flying within an agreeable and refreshing wind. There
were warm and exquisite odors and suddenly a fog. And a
flat floor on which I saw the guides standing.
white fog appeared a tremendously golden luminous figure
- an androgynous being radiating a light as bright
as the sun, but not hurting my sight. The figure was well
delimitated and began approaching me and becoming bigger
in size as it came nearer until I saw it a little bigger
than myself. I was invaded by such a free satisfaction and
WONDER from such a beautiful being that my mind was incapable
to understand. I almost lost conscience of myself - becoming
one with him in that immense sensation. I was consoled by
this compassionate being.
In that runaway
happiness, and with only a thread of conscience left, I
turned towards my guides and whispered that I deeply thank
them for this immense experience, but I had to go back to
the Earth realm to undertake unsatisfied small tasks. They
answered that my life would go on, nevertheless as tortuous
as it had been, with only a few attainments, and that my
life would only last for the time that was planned by destiny.
Almost nothing of what was planned could be changed.
In my great
pride and haughtiness, I remained before this wonderful
BEING that transcended me, of whom I felt a small part within
me, and whose kind and definite answer I waited for. I turned
again and looked at the Being of Light, directly, at a distance
of about half a meter. He was a being of powerful, beautiful
and extraordinary energy, but I could not see his face.
I had the feeling that if I did, it would be the equivalent
the being made me feel an infinitely tender and noble embrace
which is not possible to describe. I understood and thanked
him, because everything now was possible, even refusing
to stay, for I had reasons to go back to Earth.
I saw how he extended his right arm. Between us there was
a dark abyss which I could pass by jumping if I took his
hand, except that no return would be possible. He told me
I was free to take my own decision, an offer for which I
looked at him thankfully and satisfied. Inclining my head,
I breathed exquisite and refreshing air.
of Light, who looked at me with identification and condescendence,
slowly descended his hand and went away becoming every time
smaller. He was a being of pure love, wisdom, light and
energy. The guides appeared then again, curious and kind,
and were ready to take me back.
and fell down at horrendous speed with the sensation of
a fire ball. I could not stand the friction and the unbearable
noise. At the moment of maximum friction and sound, I accepted
that I would die, rather than to stand the sensation. But
to my surprise, the guides told me telepathically with luminous
words, to relax because I would soon would arrive.
I then felt
an explosion of white and red marmalade and traveled through
it contrary to its flux. I finally fell with a dry and heavy
fall, weighing tons, to see myself sitting on my bed with
my eyes open and burning. I felt a deep pain near my heart,
a pain almost unbearable, and a great difficulty to breathe.
My body was
rigid. My arms could not move. My feet were frozen and I
could not move them either. I could only allow threads of
air enter my lungs, or else they would hurt. I felt a little
dizzy and the pain in the chest was still intense. I was
unconscious for a moment, but when I managed to move my
waist, I closed my eyes and lied down. I was still hearing
internal and external noises and zooming.
in my heart lasted with intensity for one hour and a half.
I managed to go to the bathroom, feeling as tired as ever
in my life. I then went back to bed and slept for 12 hours.
When I woke up, I remembered the guides told me how my wife,
my daughter and myself would die. I saw my complete future
and that of my daughter. I was told I would only remember
fragments of it in certain moments. The guides told me my
life would continue as tortuous as it had been, but with
small satisfactions. It had to be like that because it was
programmed that way, and the purpose, although painful,
was very constructive and evolusive. I could not change
