I remember when my daughter was thrown from a horse at age six. The horse stepped on her and ruptured her liver. She was very close to death for three days. I was in the Amazon at the time. It was the longest journey of my life coming back to upstate NY. When I arrived at the hospital, she was in pediatric ICU, hooked up to tubes and IVs. We didnt know if she was going to make it. I sat beside her, crying, praying to God that she be saved, when an immense clarity came over me. My sadness disappeared and I spoke to her soul. Although she was unconscious, I said to her, Sweetheart, I love you, and you have to make a choice if its time for you to go or not. Its your choice. I love you, your soul knows if your journey is done. Three minutes later, she regained consciousness. She chose yes.
