Thought this may be an interesting story for those who wish to read it
I'm a mum of three kids and while I was giving birth(no gory details I promise
) the midwife asked right towards the end if I wanted a mirror to watch my baby being born. As I was struggling, I didn't want to be freaked out so I said no and closed my eyes.
When I opened them, there was a young woman's face(I knew in an instant who she was) floating right up near my own face(midwife and hubby were behind me). She seemed very concerned and kept asking if I was ok. Now, there was no sound but I just knew in my mind what she was saying.
The woman then looked over her shoulder towards the back of the room and a large white glow appeared. Out of that glow, I could see shapes forming in the shape of people.
My grandfather(who died about 20 years ago) was at the forefront and behind him seemed to be many of my deceased relatives.
The woman then started to back away and a man appeared behind her and rested his arms on her shoulders, then they both disappeared and then so did my own grandfather and relatives.
A week or so after the experience, I described the woman and man to my mother-in law who then went into shock. She brought out photos which I'd never seen before and they were spot-on.
The funny thing is was that I wasn't allowed any painkilling drugs in my labour as my baby was distressed and the midwife wanted him out asap, so there wouldn't have been any hallucinations. I'm also not a religious person and never believed that there was any afterlife until that experience.
What's made me curious, is how would someone be able to see something like that? Has anyone else had a similar experience with seeing spirits while completely conscious?
