Just before Embraced by the Light came
out, I was very sick and getting sicker all the time. I was a nurse at a
children's hospital, and the doctor in charge of infections tested me for
the AIDS virus. I didn't have the virus, but I continued to progress towards
One night, I had an out-of-body
experience. I went looking for my parents and found myself in a place
of great beauty. I came down some steps, which were the purest white
I had ever seen. They were next to a building of pure white. I came to
two huge oak doors, and I went in. Inside, I went through two other doors
into a room. It was there that I met Jesus. There was a veil between
us, but it didn't matter. I felt so loved and welcome with him and comfortable
in his presence. He showed me the room, which was much like a chapel
or place of worship. It was mint green. The carpet was soft and deep.
There were crystal chandeliers, some cut in half and hanging on the walls.
One was in the very middle of the room, and was coming down from a crystal
dome of some type. The walls were a thin marble shot through with green.
They glowed with light. I asked him verbally, though we had been communicating
is this done?" He waved his hand and one of the panels disappeared, and
I saw a peculiar light, like a pink florescent tube, but made of stone.
Then I understood that the light coming from the walls as well as from
the entire building was the light of Christ.
He said, "This is no ordinary
chapel, but your family's chapel." He indicated that it should be treated
as a sacred temple. There was a tall pulpit at the front with steep steps
going up. Behind it were tall choir seats. I could see no piano or organ
for the choir, but I understood that the human or spirit voice alone
is considered special. There were cushioned chairs in a semi-circle facing
the pulpit, with an aisle up the middle. The seats flipped up and had
a crushed velvet covering. There was a burnished gold of some type under
On one wall were five steps leading
up to some green marble doors with burnished gold handles. We went through
these doors and onward until we came to a reception type room. Here, were
two screens like computer screens, and I was told they were for accessing
information. Off this area were two amphitheaters like college lecture rooms
with chairs going upwards and a podium at the bottom. I was given the impression
that these rooms were used for lectures from important spirits, prophets,
or others. I also understood that this building held apartments for married
couples to stay. Attached were also apartments for single people. After
looking around, we went back into the green chapel, and I felt so much peace
Next, Jesus placed his large
hands on my shoulders and turned me to face him, though a thin veil still
separated us. He shook me gently but firmly and said, "Janet, you must hurry!!! There
isn't much time left." Then I was immediately back in my bed in my room.
I have never written this down
before, though I have told the story to my relatives. Yes, my life was spared
through my illness, but just barely. I have had many difficult challenges
in life, including a divorce. I am now disabled and cannot work as a nurse
anymore. But God is taking care of me, and I have the income I need for
life without needing to work. Sometimes I struggle wanting to know why God
decided not to take me to Heaven to stay. But I know he wants me to find
happiness here on Earth. He wants me to serve others so that my spiritual
healing can be complete. And I feel I am almost there.
