(Lake District, England)
I was flying, at least several feet above the ground. I felt the warm sun on my face and the gentle breeze became my new lover by caressing my face. I saw a sea of sunflowers swaying to an imaginary music. The sight stunned me as I watched mesmerised by the awesomeness of it all. My soul was at ease, all my problems floated away into nothingness. I couldn’t remember where I was coming from or where I was going.
I was static but not in a bad way.
I knew I still had a body but didn’t feel any urge to check what I looked like. I felt a tingle on my toes and the sun shone so bright my eyelids almost hurt. I wanted to reach out and touch it, naturally, I wanted to stay there forever. I heard soft murmurings from afar and gradually, it developed into a chorus of some kind. My eyes flickered to the sunflowers again, the soft chorus emanating from the distance further heightened my sense of euphoria.
I watched and waited for what seemed like years. In the distant, I saw a hill covered in flowers I couldn’t possibly describe. It was an awesome experience. And then, I woke up and saw the worried faces of my sisters…

I’ve read and heard countless debates about life after death, my position is simple enough. I’m a firm believer in life after death. The universe and everything in it didn’t happen because of some flimsy big bang theory. It’s more than that.
The events described above were real. I had that strange experience after my heart stopped on the operating table several years ago. I didn’t see any angels but I totally experienced a brief taste of heaven and believe me, it was as real as my fingers punching away on the laptop.
We live in a wonderful world, however, there are worlds beyond our human comprehension, beauty beyond any language known to man. I think that’s why I write more about the supernatural, I’ve experienced it so many times, I know God is real and He loves us so much.
I’ll stop here and hope all my friends would enjoy the rest of their week!
Much love, always! 🙂
Life is mysterious. You had a very powerful experience, something worthy of a book! 🙂 Scientists always love the idea of explaining everything and there are some things that are simply beyond human reasoning. I’m sure I’ll read this in a book someday.
I’m also sorry at the other story. Our experiences in life makes us who we are, and you are by far one of the nicest people I’ve met in my life. Keep encouraging others and keep inspiring, you’re a beacon.
Well done Seyi. 🙂
Thank you Christy. Knowing you has enriched my life too and I’m deeply grateful for your constant visits and encouragements. I’ll see you soon. Take care!
You’re welcome Seyi. I’ll see you soon.
Beautiful! Seyi..you are so inspiring…I awoke to the rays of sunshine in my room this morning. As I lay there half awake, I wondered how something so big, so bright and so hot burned throughout the night. Then I realized that God put that big bright light in the sky and left it burning all night. What a wonderful warmth that filled my room, my heart and I feel loved. Oh what a incredible feeling to be loved.
I arose out of my bed and headed for the shower. Turning on the water I wondered… Where does all this water come from. The water I take for granted every morning when I shower. The water that cleanses my body and wakes me up. The water that fills my thirst when I drink. Oh what a wonderful gift, water. How I love water. Then I realize that God created the oceans and the weather that brings the water to me, the plants and the earth. When I think of God’s greatness in his creations, I feel his gifts and love for me… and I think it’s so good to be loved.
As I go through my day, I look around and see so many people. They look in my eyes and see something I could never communicate with words. In my eyes they see a gratefulness, a humbleness, an amazing love. In my eyes, they see God.
Thank you David. God is indeed awesome, I needn’t add to your comment. I appreciate your visit, thank you!
Reblogged this on The Militant Negro™.
Thanks for the Reblog my friend!
Good to see you, have not seen you in many months, hope you’re doing well.
I am doing great, thanks. 🙂 I hardly see your updates on my reader, would have to visit manually. Take care my friend!
“I know God is real and He loves us so much.” Amen!
He is Jill. Appreciate your visit.
It’s becoming more and more a brave thing for people to say God is real nowadays. Thank you for stating it here, Seyi. I believe God is real, too. I saw angels when I had an accident many years ago. They were nothing like described in books and legends. I will click over to your link now. God Bless.
I know what you mean. My husband used to say bad has turned to good and good has turned to bad, but we have to be known for our beliefs and convictions. Always grateful to see you here my friend. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your day.
Seyi, I’ve said that very same things as your husband. Good and bad have been switched around. But, some of us are still keeping the faith. 🙂
That’s good. There would be remnants with their faith still untouched. I hope God would keep us spotless till the end. Thanks my friend. 🙂
Read this blog with focused attention.
Inspiring and reassuring. It’s comforting to see believers out there unafraid to share their tenants.
I have two questions for you:
1. Are you familiar with “The Apostles’ Creed?”
2. Are you now, or have you grieved the loss of someone close?
Blessing to you from the States!
Thank you my friend. Yes I’m familiar with ‘The Apostles’ Creed.’ My dad passed a year ago, he’s in my mind always. I appreciate your visit and comment!
Blessings to you. 🙂
THANK YOU for the post!!
Thank you for reading Arlen.
Blessings to you.
Thank you too!!!!
What a beautiful message and your photograph, stunning. Dear Seyi, what you share here is powerful, magical, supernatural. You bring comfort and truth with your wonderfully penned words, and through what could have been a terrifying experience you share instead the truth that God is real and he loves us and this time we have on earth is a mere blip. We ain’t seen nothing yet baby! God bless you my dear friend, may your week be filled with the beauty of warmth and friendship and blessings galore. Much love to you 😉 ❤ 🙂 PS I will go over and read your full story 🙂
I love your words Sherri, ‘We ain’t seen nothing yet baby!’ and we ain’t! Yes, the joy of knowing Christ is enough to blot out any blip in this fallible world we inhabit. Thank you for your kind comment Sherri! Knowing that I have friends who share my belief and truly understand my point of view is priceless. It means a lot to me! I wish you the same, love, joy and peace galore. 🙂 ( I love that word)
God bless you my friend and much love to you!
🙂 🙂 🙂
It’s wonderful to share our beliefs…and even more love and blessings galore to you dear Seyi!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Thanks dear friend! 🙂
The supernatural world is one we can never fathom, well except those who are evil. When we have God we do not fear what lurks in the shadows. Our God is supreme and able. 🙂 And he will always deliver us. 🙂
Have a blessed week, dear Sandra.
Very true Celestine, our God is supreme and always able to deliver us. Enjoy the rest of your week my friend.
That photo is one of my images of Heaven. One takes a chance in the social media when disbelieving the ‘big bang’ and other theories of how it began, but all I have to do is visit nature or go out in my small boat offshore and see the wonders of life and know that this world is no accident and yes there is much more for us when we move to the next step of eternity. Great post Seyi. It’s always a pleasure to read and think on your words.
You’re right Dannie. I love nature pictures and when I go to the country side, look around at the way things were beautifully arranged, the wonders of our world is in full array and one can but wonder at what scientists propagate as the beginning of time. I appreciate your kind visit and comment my friend, do have a wonderful weekend!
Yes, I am a believer in life after death too.
Enjoyed reading as always.
Have a fantastic weekend Seyi.
That’s good Mojisola, thank you for your visit. I appreciate it! Do have a wonderful weekend my friend!
Thank you Patti, have a great weekend!
Loved this! ❤
Thank you Susan.
I like the taste of that!
Thanks my friend, enjoy the rest of your week!
Liebe Seyi wünsche dir einen wunderbaren Start in die neue Woche mit vielen lieben Grüßen Klaus in Freundschaft
Vielen Dank für Ihre Freundlichkeit Klaus . Ich hoffe, dass Sie den Rest der Woche zu genießen würden . Bitte bleiben Sie sicher , mit viel Segen von ihrem Freund.
If science could explain everything then the wonders of the world and other worlds would be diminished, no matter the beliefs of the reader, there is something here for everybody to speculate on…I find your experience fascinating!
I love science, it was probably one of the reasons I survived that terrible night. However, there are certain things we can’t just explain, things that were beyond science. Thanks for reading my friend!
Thanks my friend! This is lovely! 🙂 🙂
I have to say I do not believe in a world after this, but as a hope and a vision I can understand it.. Sunflowers are a powerful part of such a place… Certainly different than asphodel.
Hope is a powerful emotion, it can achieve the impossible. I appreciate your visit my friend, enjoy the rest of your weekend!
“He takes that which was “beyond” us and places it “within” us. And immediately, once “the beyond” has come “within,” it rises up to “the above.”
Very true David, very true!
I’m a big “believer” in science, but I love your piece! And the photo you selected was truly stunning. It reminded me a little of some of the scenes in the movie: “What Dreams May Come”, with Robin Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr. An afterlife should be as vibrant as a warm day in spring. I long to run on those hills with my dear sweet Ginger girl! — YUR
Thanks Unclerave, just imagine if our present world is as peaceful and serene as that. No wars, no murders, just living under the sun without any fears whatsoever, that would be heaven!
I appreciate your visit my friend and I hope you’ll enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Thanks for sharing your story. I am always fascinated by near death experiences and it always resonates with me cause I know deep down that life is never ending and there is a beautiful transition that happens even if it is extremely painful for those of us still on this realm. Have you ever read Home With God: In A Life That Never Ends by Neale Donald Walsch? If not, I highly recommend it. I think some of it will definitely resonate with you, considering your experience.
Thanks for reading for reading, I really appreciate it. I’ll check out that book, I’m sure I’ll be blessed. I’ll head over to your site soon. Have a merry Christmas and a fabulous new year!
Yeah. Let me know what you think when you read it. And thanks…hope you enjoy the site and I wish you the same! 🙂
There’s gotta’ be more to life after our time here on earth. I do believe that. I hope that there really is more. I really, really do.
