Peter Little's Dream Near-Death
October 29, 1996, I had a so-called "white light experience."
I never felt comfortable reporting this until I read your "triggers"
section which includes other experiences, not necessarily "near-death".
to October 29, 1996, I had had some very pleasant life changes
and experiences. I was finally able to get my divorce in
July of 1994, had just gotten joint custody of my two lovely
daughters (Erika, then 9, and Krista, 6), had spent the
weekend body surfing on Long Island with my best friend
Paul Smaldone, plus I was newly "in love" with
a wonderful woman from Guatemala who was living in Connecticut
and who I had met through my foreign language club.
for a some time been feeling great about life and had episodes
of overwhelming feelings of well-being. So over the weekend
of October 27, 1996, all these pleasant things seemed to
come together. Then on the morning of the 29th, I was about
to wake up when I noticed an enrapturing white light in
my mind's eye.
nothing about these things but I had enough curiosity and
courage to hold onto the experience for a few moments. I
felt myself in a state of bliss and remember looking at
the sides of the tunnel which was enveloping me. Then telepathically,
I heard a voice say, "We are very happy with you,"
which I have attributed to my parents who had both died
of cancer a few years before.
I became frightened and jumped out of my bed.
next night, as I was sleeping, I had the same blissful feelings
and saw a procession of Christmas ornaments dancing across
my mind's eye; very overwhelming at the time.
tell you that I am not at all religious; actually I must
confess I laugh at organized religion, but I also believe
in live and let live. But after these experiences my fascination
with philosophy, meditation and mysticism exploded.
always been a fun-loving fellow and enjoy sharing any good
feelings with other people but these experiences were a
little too much to share openly. Now I can share these things
in a prudent manner depending on the situation knowing that
I have the sense from your website that these matters are
lost my job a few years ago, and returning to it finally,
family court is forcing me to make my work the focus of
my life. So I do not have much extra time but if you have
any comments or suggestions, I am receptive.
