AngelicView: I decided to make a Part 2 because there are so many interesting OBE’s out there, and they are generally short stories. So I’ll put each person’s story in a different color. This group of OBE’s are NDE-like. In other words, there was no death of the physical body, and yet the experience had some NDE qualities associated with it. (Link to Part 1)
Sometime during the night I found myself wide awake and floating just an inch or so above my body facing the ceiling. I found this very frightening as I was beginning to float up and towards my right. I grabbed onto my wife’s shoulder to try and stay where I was. Although her shoulder felt solid to me, it did not help me to hold on. I even tried to shake her shoulder to wake her up. Again it felt solid but I could not keep a grip. At this point, I floated out of my bedroom, into the living room. At this point I thought, “oh my God I’m dying.” I’ll never see another sunset or drive my car again. I’ll never see another morning. It was at this point I Found myself standing in outer space. A disembodied voice that came from somewhere to my right said “Only people matter” That’s it, nothing else. At that moment I realized that I had a type of body that was hovering upright. I had human form but without features. I guess I was a type of shadow. I was also at that point filled with a level of joy/happiness that is truly indescribable. I also was aware that I could ask any question imaginable and instantaneously know the answer.
The knowledge was unfathomable, yet I asked no question. I absolutely believe if I even thought a question I would immediately have the answer. It was at this point that I started to look around. Mostly it was dark, but when I looked to my right, I could see the planet earth as if in H D. It looked like the pictures taken from space by N A S A. It was very clear and about the size of a dime. At this point I again turned my attention toward my new form. I looked at my arm and hand. they seemed like dark shadows. I felt no sense of touch or any physical sensations. As I looked off into space, I stared off into the distance at about a two o’clock angle. At this point I leaned forward and for whatever reason, started to literally fly toward that point.
As this happened, I came back to my bed without knowing how.
I all of a sudden in a split second came out of my body and found myself floating about a meter above my bed facing a bright white light and before I knew it I was in this realm of light … I realized then where I was and it all made sense to me … I felt safe because I realized it was him … He felt like my father (Not my biological father but my real father) … And I felt pure love the whole time … It was bliss … He was talking to me at light speed , Giving me all this information … It felt like I knew everything at once … He taught me the meaning of life … One of the things he said was … Tell people about your experience … I felt so safe with him … At the end I asked him , Are we going now ?( I really wanted to go with him because it felt so good in the light … It was so pure and loving ) … no bad or bad feelings … After I asked him that question he said to me … Your not ready yet … Soon as he said that I looked back and saw my body in the sitting position , then all of a sudden I felt myself going back into my body.
At that point I realized what had happened and I felt so good … I just looked up and smiled and said to him … Thank you God for letting me know you exist … I know now that pure love does not exist in the biological world … It only exists in that realm … There is no hell … I believe even bad people go to Heaven … Because its not their fault they were born … They are also here to learn what they need to … And yes we will be reborn but that could be anytime because in the other realm time doesn’t exist … What we do in this realm is like a job … All we have to do is learn and learn from our mistakes, live and die … Evolve into perfection ( Love ) as it is in Heaven … After the experience I felt so different … Like I had been cleansed and been given a shot of pure love which has not left me in all these years.
I saw something not of this world…I was in the “Tunnel” looking down at an Illuminated White City…the buildings made of Marble, the streets Mother of Pearl…window sills lined in silver. I saw an ocean…smooth, clear as glass with a Ferris Wheel spinning slowly at the edge…four seats moving slowly. I saw two different cities connected by a bridge…and at one point I felt myself lowering down to see this place up close…I looked to my left and saw a reddish/brown brick wall, that sent me back into my sleeping body… I was given a gift that I never forgot…that city remained in my head for ten years…I tried to paint what I saw but no amount of paint could reproduce the beauty I saw…no matter how good the artist.
The next thing that I knew was that I seemed to be travelling in some sort of a tunnel. I could see a small light at the end that was very bright and I was getting closer to it. I don’t know how I was moving; I seemed to be gliding effortlessly. At the same time, I could hear the most amazing music, nothing like the music on earth at all. I have no way of describing it, other than to say that it was heavenly music.
When I got closer to the bright white light, I remember seeing rows and rows of hands, all held open as if to greet me and welcome me. There were no bodies attached, no faces and no-one spoke. All communication was done with thought transmission. These were beings of light. I felt tremendous love all around me, it was so intense, I was completely engulfed by it and I felt such enormous relief – all my sadness had completely vanished. I felt so relaxed and peaceful and totally loved.
Whatever was happening and wherever I was, I wanted to stay, but suddenly words entered my head. I don’t know who was speaking to me; the words just came into my head. I was told: “you’re not ready”, you’re not ready yet”. Suddenly, I found myself travelling back down through the tunnel at tremendous speed. I was being sent back. I heard a very loud whoosh sound and I woke up very startled.
I hadn’t a clue what had just happened. It felt as if I had been thrown out of something. I remember thinking “what on earth was that?” I’ve just had the most amazing dream of my life! But, of course this was not just a dream at all. This was an out of body experience or a near death experience. I believe without doubt that I had a glimpse of the ‘other side’.
At 8 years old, I was sitting next to a small creek. It was a sunny day, mid afternoon in Spring. I was alone…my sister was somewhere close by with friends, as she was “babysitting” me, but we were not with each other. I remember throwing small stones into the water, and liking the way the sunshine moved with the ripples from the stones. I was really concentrating on this and the next thing I knew, I was not me any more.
I was outside of myself, and all of a sudden I had a huge sense of sadness and disappointment…I realized that I was born again on earth, and it made me so sad to be back here. I was really upset that I had to do THIS over again. I’m not sure of the sequence here, but I also remember wanting to be back in the universe. I understood that before coming back to earth, I was this tiny, tiny speck of light…one of trillions of specks of light, and my “being” was perfection….all knowing and all loving. And I also realized that if I was not there, even though I was one of trillions of specks of light, that the entire universe would be out of balance-it wouldn’t be perfection, and it would never happen, I would always be that speck of light. It may sound hokey, but I was “One with the Universe”.
I was given a very quick review of the life I was to live this time on earth, and I got a lot of information…I didn’t remember a lot of the details once I came out of this trance, but I know that at the time, I was given all information. I was “told” that I would struggle, and somewhere in my 30’s or 40’s I would have a very tough time (true) but that in my 50’s my husband would be very successful and I would live the rest of my life very comfortably…almost as if what I had to learn would be learned through my struggle, and that the rest of my life would be much easier.
I really have kept that idea close to my heart (the feeling of being this perfect, necessary speck of light)…granted closer to my heart at some times than at others. I believe that that light lives in each of us, and its the universe’s reflection of God within each of us. I woke up when my sister came up to me and asked me if I was ok.
