    1. Bless you, Lee. I did not want to go into too much detail regarding the doctor because that is not what this post was about. Yes, Someone truly was looking out for me. According to the nurses who “talked” I should not have lived. I will never forget that experience as I’m sure you will never forget yours either. Divine Blessings in return! 🌈

    1. There are times truthfully, Scott, that I wish I was still in the place that I had visited. And thank you regarding my photography. I have been absolutely obsessed with the fall color this year. I just have not been able to get it enough of it. 💕🍁💕

  1. This one made me pause. I knew you spoke of this before, but never in detail. It was so hard to read, and yet so very beautiful and hopeful.
    Your message of forgiveness, and the power of love, makes me so glad that you had this experience, Amy. It explains so much about you. I’m glad you came back, your mission was a special one. I’m proud to know you. 💕

    1. Van, this is a subject that is very uncomfortable for many many people. I am curious though, is why you found it hard to read. I really tried my best to state facts only and not write from emotion. I’m glad this brought hope into your life because from my experience that I just described, it has made me rethink a whole lot about what I was taught. I’m just so glad you read this. It was not easy for me to write. Much Love and Peace to you this day, dear friend. 💕🌸💕

      1. What was hard to read..the miscarriage, you were very young, the misdiagnosis, the way you were treated by the nurse. Certainly not the NDE, which I’m so glad you shared. I have always been a believer. And I knew this was a hard one to write, so thanks again.

  2. Ahhh, you just put pieces into a puzzle and made it click for me, Amy. I am so sorry you suffered in this particular way, but I’m glad you’re here, again. I could never discount a brave and beautiful story like that. ❤

    1. Well, Joey, good for you for figuring out some pieces of the puzzle. It actually took me years to really put this story together to try to understand exactly what I had experienced. My memory came back in bits and pieces and I’m crossing fingers that overtime more memory comes to me. Sometimes out of our greatest suffering comes the biggest miracles. And yes I do have a great imagination but even this story is beyond my capabilities. I could never make something like this up. May you have a wonderful day today! 💖

  3. Dear sweet Amy ❤ Thank you for sharing the amazing and beautiful story and photographs! I am transfixed by the beauty of the woods. When I look at the photos, they send me off into a daydream. I am sorry you had to go through such a harrowing medical experience. A big hug! ❤ It was an extraordinary gift you were given. ❤ I am happy for you that you had the courage to follow the knowledge you gained. I imagine it wasn't easy. I can see how it would be a double shock: first, the medical emergency and then trying to make sense of what you experienced. Two years ago, I came across by chance a short talk by Anita Moorjani as part of something else I was watching and I watched a video of a longer talk by her last summer. I could feel the truth of her experience as she talked about it. I know from reading both of her books that she got a lot of push back from talking and writing about her experience. It didn't prick any defensiveness or doubt in me when I watched her talk or read her books. Reading your story doesn't either. For me, the details aren't important. It is the feeling that runs through the telling that resonates. It feels warm and solid and filled with love. She learned what she needed to learn. You learned what you needed to learn. I think it is possible that we learn in order to heal ourselves and then go out and help others. I don't Know if this is true, but it feels true to me. We have to decide to do these things. To learn. To heal. To help. It feels to me that by doing this we get closer to the state you describe of feeling full of Love and being Love. Love, blessings and a big hug for you. ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Good morning, Sarah. This post is too important to me to rush through the comments so I am taking my time to answer them in a manner deserving of them. And knowing you read my post today I haven’t been functioning at 100% so yeah, things are taking more time. Your words brought tears to my eyes because I have not had too much freedom in telling this story, and when I do, MOST who I told it to I could tell just wouldn’t open to it. I was not able to tell this story to my Mom, which just about tore me in two because I wanted so badly to convey to her my experience. I did however, tell her that where she was going hands down is so wonderful she will not “think” twice of those who she left behind. I was forbidden to talk about subjects as this one growing up and in my adulthood, not one of my siblings when told this story, quite believed me. I have been given the label “drama queen” in my bio family. Why? Because none of them are able to really embrace with fullness their emotions and because I am just so different from them. SO what you told me here brought such a huge sense of relief to me. I KNOW this story is true. I know I have an imagination, granted, which is all good, yet there is no way I could make a story like this up. I had one other experience, even bigger then this one, when I was about 5 years old where again the “theme” was Love. That story will be written here when my Heart guides me. I was very punished for even mentioning this Event in my life and because of the “push back” from society at large, have kept quiet about it. How do I thank you enough for bringing validation to my story, Sarah? I’m so GLAD you read this post. And yes, my photography is incredible! I have been SO obsessed with the Fall Colors this year and have really concentrated on composition, detail, geometric designs, and shooting in such a way to convey not only Beauty but Deep Emotion. Much Love and Blessings to you this day!! (((HUGS))) Amy 💞

      1. Dear sweet Amy ❤ I am sending you a bouquet of hugs and love right now. ❤ Imagine it for me, please, full of spring and sunshine, summer and dew, fall and crisp leaves crunching underfoot, and winter and the mind-awakening cold clear stillness. All have the beauty of Spirit flowing through them waiting to be seen and felt. Trying so very hard to open a space where they can shine. Hold onto your memory of your glimpse of the light and its feeling and sit in the glorious Love. Let it help your heart to heal. Don’t feel rushed. The fog will lift when you are ready. (On a practical note, I am so very glad you made it through yesterday’s incident in one piece! Yes. I agree with you about turning off cell phones in the car or not looking at them. I don’t turn mine off, but I don’t look at it while driving either.) I don’t generally talk about God, spirit, or Jesus because I think a lot of people have an automatic shut off in their listening when spirit is mentioned. I take a circuitous route. The purpose of my blog, why I wanted to do it in the first place, is as a continuous Thank You note to God for letting me witness the beauty I see. And to shine a light on it with the hope, that it will be seen and felt by those who view the photos even if they might be reluctant to hear the words. I am collecting in my mind the photos of your magic forests so I can visit them in my imaginary journeys. Thank you so very much for sharing them!! ❤ This morning, while in the quiet after praying, I walked through a forest of pine trees. Where are these trees, I wondered? Now, I think I need to find some pine trees with their beautiful scent. 🙂 ❤ I am praying for you, Amy. ❤ May God Bless you and Keep you Safe in his Love. ❤ ❤ ❤

      2. Sarah, you are the kindest young woman I think I do know. You are so right and I also know that this fog or this process that I am going through right now cannot be rushed in anyway and it will lift in due time. That being said I don’t like it but yet something is being healed deep down within me within this process and I know it. Your gift I do receive and I am planning on taking a power nap just about now because my Mr. Rocky decided to wake me up at 5 a.m. this morning. He was not feeling well and I had to attend to his needs but because I was awoken a good two and a half hours too early now I need to rest. And yes about God and or Jesus, I to do not talk about the subject directly because I know it is a turn-off for many. It is even a turn off to me at times so I have learned to talk in a general way and I know that just the energy from my blog radiates LOVE, and that LOVE is God. Bless you for your prayers which I embrace readily to my Heart. Now I close my eyes and see your gift to me this day and when I awaken in a little while I will be refreshed to be able to continue my day. Much Love to you much LOVE! 💕💖💕

  4. Amy, this is the most wonderful post you ever wrote. It rarely happens but I don’t know what to say. I am just standing in awe of this diving gift you have brought down here in absolute awareness. Thank you for going through this pain because in dying you were born again to teach us such an important lesson. I am speechless, Amy 💖 Now I go through your post again and look at the photos…

    1. Erika. Dear friend, your words brought such Comfort to me. I’ve not told this story much because it hasn’t been received well. I was born it would seem with my “3rd eye” open and saw things that most did not. I knew at a young age many teachings were wrong and what “love” was defined as, was not. Notwithstanding, just because I seem to “know” does not make my life easy. In fact, it seems just the opposite is true. I am SO glad this experience spoke to you. As for my photography, I am astonished by what I am doing lately. I have been obsessed with Mother and the Fall Colors. And I mean addicted! Have a great day today! 💝

      1. Amy, I never had a near-death-experience but what you wrote here about what you experienced during those moments and what you wrote just here in your reply feel (!) so very familiar. I can also totally relate to what you say that you felt differently about several teachings. I fully understand that. I felt like an alien for decades until I stopped caring about “teachings” and “traditions” which did not fit my convictions. Again, I thank you for sharing this life-changing story with us 💖 Btw. have you ever read the book “Dying to be me” by Anita Moorjani?

      2. I still feel like an “alien”, Erika, but this I do know. I’m living life according to ME, according to my Heart’s Directives. I was told years ago not to look to man for instruction but only to my Heart, (where the Connection to the Higher Source lives). You are the second person to mention this author and so I just purchased her book. Thank you so much! I am on this Quest right now, a Quest that is searching deep Within and I’m turning to “tools” to help guide me as to how to get to find the Treasures from that Quest. I just finished a novel that mirrored a lot of what has happened in my life. So I ponder …. 🤗

      3. I think in some way we are all aliens. Because deep inside we feel that we are not what we are told to be. And this is what makes people sick and what confuses them about themselves.
        I think it is meant for you to read it. It am sure you will meet someone in this author who shares a very familiar story in many ways.

  5. Thank you Amy, that is a journey like no other. To touch something so profound in our life will always leave a mark, a mark of love that never leaves us. A footprint that changes us forever, and a path that is so much newer than the one before. It is a love that cannot be touched by anything we have down here, simply because it is unconditional, a total acceptance of what we are.
    Mind you, they did ask you to come back, but that was for you so that you could find the unconditional within you, and pass that on to others. It would be like walking out on a movie thinking it wasn’t going anywhere, only to find out later that the finish was a wonderful ending that would bring it all together so that the understanding was an amazing and beautiful conclusion of what went before.
    I have no doubt it would have been difficult to ‘come back’ Amy, especially under the circumstances of the pain and hurt you were going through. My journey was nothing like that as I was ‘taken’ on a journey while sleeping. But in your case it showed you many things from your perspective. You needed to ‘see’ the love of your husband and of you. How your journey was up to that point, and what was really underneath it all, and the changes that those new feelings would be for your future.
    Mind you, all of this will have taken time to understand. If you were anything like me, you had a lifetime of ‘stuff’ to re-assess. Remove those things that no longer had meaning, and allow the changes that your heart now brings into your life.
    I’m also worried about the ‘old guys’ with the books, I don’t know how many of my assignments I’ve got wrong yet 😀
    But I do know if we follow our hearts young lady, we cannot go wrong. As you have done with your mom. You have faced your fears and understood your journey. Saw the beauty in that forgiveness with your mom and now understand the ending of your film.
    Each and every time we ‘see’ that ending we release what we have held tightly to within, which is a mask, a lie we have held hard in fear of facing the hurt and pain that this life brings. But as you now know, that one step of facing our hurts is the one thing that will free us of that burden, and open our hearts by dropping away all that we held before.
    You are free my friend, truly free so that your love for yourself will now shine brightly, in turn shining on those around you because of what you have faced ❤
    Thank you for sharing Amy, it is a beautiful journey and I am proud of you for allowing us to share that moment that has had a very personal and emotional impact on your life, thank you ❤

    1. As you may suspect, this story was not easy for me to write. The responses I had in previous attempts to talk about this, were not too positive. I am SO Blessed to have this place here where so many not only encourage me to write things like this, but I am believed and my experience accepted. That is a Gift!
      Mark, I did not know what Love was when I “died”. It’s taken me decades to figure that out and still am today. My understanding of what Love is, was when I “felt” the Divine Unconditional Love within me, around me, (I forgot to say that … everything in me and around me was Love) all blew me away. I get the closest to that “feeling” when in Nature merging with the incredible Beauty I see all around me. I “feel” that Love when in the Flow. As for those “aged men” I think they showed up ONLY because it was not my time and they made very sure of that before sending me back. Um, I wasn’t asked, FYI. I was told I had to go back and I was not happy about it.
      As I was writing my Heart corrected me and instead of going back and rewriting what I did I say this … I did know what Love was from another experience I had as a child but I had forgotten it. The pain and hurt were so great that they buried my Insight and Experience so deep I forgot about it. It wasn’t until years later after this NDE I remembered. Someone else told me she felt such “freedom” when she comes here so for this I rejoice. I promised myself when my Mom passed I would not hold back on the words that are meant to be heard. Now that she is gone and is my Father, I have nothing or no one to hold me back from revealing not only stories but naked Truth that would have made my parents very uncomfortable. I actually did have one sibling try to coerce me into agreeing only to write certain things just in case someone from the family would read what I write and get hurt. No. This blog is mine and mine alone and I have zero intention to hurt anyone by writing Truth. IF someone does get upset by what I write, it is not on me. I have the right to fly and I am flying. Lately I must admit, the “fog” that I’m still in is annoying and it does scare me YET I also know this will pass. Another Passage I’m going through now, dear friend, and when it is done I shall have grown even more.
      You are so welcome that I shared this story. It is an honor to do so. I overcame many fears in writing this and publishing it. I’m learning no matter what my Truth is not to be quiet about it. I was taught to sweep everything under the rug that didn’t fit or was painful or wasn’t understood. Nope. No more.
      THANK YOU for this glorious comment and for reading my true story. Your Presence in my Life means a lot to me, Mark. Bless you!!!! 💞

      1. And blessings to you also Amy, it is lovely to see you remove the shield that we bury ourselves with in this life. And the fog is just the after effect of the shock of what has happened. It will take some time to lift so don’t be afraid. The best thing for it is walks and picture taking in nature believe it or not. The endorphins it creates is one of the best healers there is 😀
        And most certainly give yourself time, the emotional side takes much longer to go through, but that has purpose, you are rearranging your entire life’s beliefs and actions and it will take some time to rethink exactly what the truth within is that you have discovered, as we are all different so it must come from within you. You can listen to other people as guides, good or bad, but in the end you will ‘know’ your truth ❤
        And in understanding others have not been where you have now been, you will see that they cannot have your understanding until they too go through a similar experience to understand it. Your integrity inside, like with the lady that was pregnant, shows you that underneath there is another person waiting to get out, they just need our patience to step past their own fears. Our place is just to help/guide them by just being our truth so that they can 'see' their is another way ❤
        And I also must comment on your new photo….my aren't we glowing young lady…but I suppose the freedom of understanding does that…like those little bursts of smiles from within that come for no reason at all, and yes still among the tears. They too have purpose, tiny droplets of healing to clear the walls of the heart. Just be gentle with yourself my friend, that will teach you…to be the new you, no longer being pulled from pillar to post with life ❤

      2. What a dear friend you are, Mark. Oh yes I do know about the walks out in Nature for it is there the weight of my life falls off and I just become ONE. I’ve taken so many pictures this year that I honestly have to laugh. It’s as though every single image I see I MUST document.
        I know my “Truth” and because of It, I have chosen to back away from certain people in my life. I’m too “bright” for them right now and so they Journey on their own Paths coming to Understanding in their own way. For now we go our separate ways. I’ve totally released all of them knowing as I have they served their Purpose in my life and now it is time to go on without them.
        I also thank you about my picture. *blush* I’m seeing the glow more and more while the haggard is leaving, thank goodness! And yes it feels wonderful not to be pulled hither and thither. (LOVE those words!) I’m getting stronger and strong with who I am with the ability that goes along with that strength that no one will take me away from me. This “quiet” that is in my life right now, is GOOD. I’m putting the pieces of the puzzle back together again after all those pieces went flying helter skelter. Then let’s not forget the gaps in the puzzle that demand rearranging.
        I’m not sure when my next post will be up. Tomorrow I have two very important appointments so … those take preference. Today I’ve promised myself to clean what needs cleaning and going for another walk. Besides my Heart is quiet without any urge to post so … when it happens it does. No worries, no pressures …. Have a LOVELY day!!! ☺️

I am an ordinary woman living an extraordinary life. God is using me in some very unique ways and for this I am extremely humble. My heart is always full of LOVE and that is what is important to God. My understanding of what Love is is also very unique and again I am left humbled that I know what this LOVE is. Thank you for taking the time to read this post, one that really was not easy for me to write. 💕🌹💕

I find myself on detours …away from the path of healing and finding my way back again and again. Also I am nowhere close to write about my journey …find myself wrapping them in the soft gloves of poetry. I see your courage, power in sharing with us. And I learn and receive.

      2. This is how I see things and maybe this will get you to feel a whole lot better about your life. I really don’t think it is possible for any of us to live from a state of perfect LOVE all the time. Not in this realm. However, the moment we do achieved that status we will no longer need this realm as a classroom. Does this make sense to you? I am not able to live from the state of LOVE at all times in my life believe me. So I hope this helps you with your life and your journey. Many many blessings to you this day. 💕💖💕

    Your photos become better and better and I just love your autumn. We don’t see many colors here, mostly we go from summer directly to winter with few days of autumn, so I enjoy to see these amazing colors in nature.

    I’m sorry, that you need to go through this rupture, but again, you gained something else, as many never get to in one life.

    As you know, I was far away in the summer and had some experiences, as I yet has to find out, how to explain, while I was in the coma. I met the death too, just in another way.

    I do really hope for you, that you get released lots of power by writing about your experiences, because I know, that you need this power to go on with your daily life, dear friend.

    Much love to you and yours ❤
