Alok B's Experience

Experience description:   

My mother and I had traveled back to India to visit our homeland. During the vacation, which as part of my summer vacation going into junior year, we had decided to travel to the Himalayas. From the beginning I realized just how magical the mountains were and how serene it was. Some of the greatest priests of the Hindu faith had one spent the term of their natural lives in those mountains.

We visited many different mountains throughout Simla and Manali, which are the foot hills of the Himalayan mountain range. From the first step onto the soil, I had felt a connection with the place, as if I had been there already. The experience happened when we were staying at Hotel Sukh Sagar in Simla, the beautiful fog city of the mountains.

I had been very tired from the day of hiking in the mountains and the windy roads and fell fast asleep at the hotel. In the beginning I felt my soul elevate out of my body in to the surroundings of the room. Then out of no where, I felt my soul being pulled upwards by an invisible force to somewhere I had never been. All of a sudden I was in a circular room with doors all around that was all red, a gaudy burnt red, and the floor was dark brown, it was hard to see-it looked medieval gothic or something. Then there was a figure that appeared and told me he was assigned to protect me and teach me the truth; to teach me of my past lives. Then with some motion of his hands we were elevated a couple feet off the ground, and a myriad of animals, peoples, leaders, and all other walks of life came rushing past through the doors under us. It was similar to the way that caribou and other group animals run in herds. He called himself "Leftinent," which I believe is one term also known as Lieutenant. But then he told me I was also Leftinent, I didn't understand what he was trying to tell me.

Then he took me to an old office filled with books and research and told me that was a book I had published in one of many of my past lives. Then I physically (in the dreamlike state) picked up the book and started to read it page after page, I could understand it fully. It was all in Latin, there were cross-sections of primates and pages and pages of just research of primates. I was ACTUALLY reading the book, the book I had "written." He told me I was a primatologist researching for the Nazis during World War II. He told me I was killed by them because I wasn't following the plans of the SS in charge. He told me I was a Ph.D. in primatology but was killed too early to finish my life work. Then I woke up for some reason, I was trying soo hard to go back to sleep, but the more I forced it it was harder, and I never had such a deep dream yet. I then started to think about what I must have been doing, and how could I possibly know Latin or even be able to see pages of it in the book I had "written" when in this life I had no idea what Latin was ever about grammatically. I never saw a cross section of a monkey in my life, so how can I all of a sudden see such a detailed cross-section? (By the way, I forgot, after knowing was killed, I started to walk with a primate along an old eastern European street at night, I didn't know where I was going).

It still keeps me wondering to this day, and I am confident that there is something a lot bigger than ourselves at work in this universe. It will be revealed to us slowly. This experience just continued to help me follow my Hindu beliefs of reincarnation, all is recycled-water, oxygen, nitrogen, and souls.

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words?          Uncertain     I do not completely remember everything I had dreamed about. I had gained phenomenal knowledge of existence and an ambiguous science and lost it all, it must still be there in the back of my brain.

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?          Uncertain     I had suffered from near death operations twice before in my life, one was 2 years ago, and another was a year ago. I had meckel diverticulittis, appendicitis, and hernia in a 3 year span from my freshman to junior year in high school. This may have had a role, I am not sure.

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?  I was most alert during my discovery of the book I had written, I was reading it page for page, then I forgot it all after I woke up.

How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal every day consciousness and alertness?          Normal consciousness and alertness


Did your vision differ in any way from your normal, everyday vision (in any aspect, such as clarity, field of vision, colors, brightness, depth perception degree of solidness/transparency of objects, etc.)?          Yes    The whole circular room was blurry

Did your hearing differ in any way from your normal, everyday hearing (in any aspect, such as clarity, ability to recognize source of sound, pitch, loudness, etc.)?
          Yes    I heard a deep voice, the voice of my guide. I also heard weird animals.

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?          Uncertain

What emotions did you feel during the experience?          I was so happy and surprised. I loved reading the books I had written. I was a little regretful that I had to wake up.

Did you pass into or through a tunnel or enclosure?        No     

Did you see a light?         No     

Did you meet or see any other beings?         Yes    I met many beings, most of them were my past lives. They did not talk to me, but I felt they WERE me, so I knew them without communicating. My guide, Leftinent, was giving me knowledge by talking and showing me my past.

Did you experience a review of past events in your life?   Uncertain     Not of MY life, but my "past" lives

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?         Uncertain     I have been searching for a Nazi primatologist but access to such archives may be hard to get at my age, and perhaps security clearance and existence of such archives may even be destroyed. I am still trying to find the truth. I do know that lieutenant/lefeinent term does check out.

Did you see or visit any beautiful or otherwise distinctive locations, levels or dimensions?          Yes    A blurry dimension that only the souls and bodies of past lives exist in.

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?  Yes    I was being teleported from area to area, space-time event to space-time even.

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?     Yes    Knowledge of an ambiguous science I had never researched or knew about, primatology. I also learned about reincarnation and the procession of souls.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? No     

Did you become aware of future events?      No

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience you did not have prior to the experience?       No     

Have you shared this experience with others?        No     

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience? No     

How did you view the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:   Experience was probably real    I had new found hope to keep looking, to keep searching because the truth is out there somewhere. It will come to me like it has come to everyone else, I just have to want it bad enough-to know where I came from, to never forget who I am and what life gave birth to me.

Were there one or several parts of the experience especially meaningful or significant to you?

How do you currently view the reality of your experience:          Experience was definitely real        

Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?          No     

Have your religious beliefs/practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?
Yes    I have more faith, faith in everything in this universe. There may be no god, or nature may be an embodiment of god, but I know there is a procession of souls just like the way the tide floats

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?          Uncertain     too much to describe.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?          Please call me to talk more, I cannot put everything down on paper.

Did the questions asked and information you provided so far accurately and comprehensively describe your experience? Yes    These questions are great because they will definitely give accurate data.
