In September 2016 my daughter and I flew to Albuquerque New Mexico to meet Morgan Freeman. Yes, God himself (Bruce Almighty and Evan Almighty references lol). That came about only after I had walked through a lot of fear about sharing my NDE. When I finally did so at an IANDS (International Association of Near Death Studies) conference in 2014, my first ever, I brought a little book I wrote called I Died And Learned How To Live. I put it in the bookstore there and someone bought it. She wasn’t planning on buying anything but saw my book and was drawn to it.
This person brought my story home and shared it at her local IANDS chapter meeting… two years later...and another person was drawn to it. This person had been contacted by Morgan Freeman’s production company months before to help them find people who’d had an NDE to be on their show. They’d settled on someone but weren’t entirely comfortable with them, so this person went home after the IANDS meeting and emailed the contact person for the show, telling them to get in touch with me.
I received an email from them on a Thursday night (they found me through this blog) and was skyping with them the following Monday. Then, my daughter and I were invited to New Mexico to be interviewed by Mr. Freeman.
I was not nervous, nor overly excited. I was grateful to be able to share the message of love. That love has been taught to me by all those who have entered and stayed or entered and left my life. I have felt the deepest love of the universe encompass all that I am, a love without bounds or end. That love has been shown to me in my life. I’ve also experienced its opposite, which helps me to recognize it even more, to desire to have it even more, to be it even more.
We are love. Every thing being and non-being is love energy. At the same time, we are the opposite of love. At any given moment we have the free will to choose love over its opposite–fear, over ego. That’s the beauty of this life, we have the choice. We can choose to experience joy or we can choose to suffer, either way we choose.
For me, right now in this moment, I choose love and I absolutely love you all xox
