The Dead And Dying Are Trying To Contact Us but what happened to Hannah from Newcastle-upon-Tyne is something I hadn't thought about before.
To set the scene, Hannah's father had lung cancer. Here's her story:
"Dad and I were very close and I was devastated when he was diagnosed with cancer. He was given a year to live and for the last few days was hospitalised.
I was an only child and Mum had died several years earlier, so our relationship was quite intense. I barely left his side.
I knew he didn't have long. He was drifting in and out of consciousness and I don't think he even knew I was there.
I felt like I was having my own out-of-body experience. I felt like I was watching everything from above, my dad's body, the nurses. And I could see myself too. And in the distance I saw light and my mum smiling."
The next thing Hannah remembers is, "I felt myself pulled back, as it were, and I was just in my chair with the nurses saying, 'I'm sorry he's gone.' It was an extraordinary feeling and one that, at the time, I had no real comprehension of.."
This is the part I hadn't thought about before. Hannah believes that she accompanied her father along the first part of his journey to the afterlife. This all coincided with her father's final breaths.
I have to add that she wasn't a believer prior to her experience. Hannah says, "I was never one for believing anything like that, but this has changed me. I had never heard of shared death experiences. I only know how I felt and what I saw."
For me this is quite a remarkable story.
