Ana's Experience

Experience description:   

I was being attacked by an unknown man in the main entrance of the building I was living in that time. He run after me and started beating me hard, but I was surprised I could defend myself pretty good. While I was suffering and in great distress, fighting him back as much as I could, I left my body and I stood a little behind and above my physical body and the whole scene.

I could see my physical body fighting this man and all the aggression, but I could no more hear my screams or any other sounds. I was in a very calm, comfortable, loving and sure place. It seemed that this place was really big although I was also somehow standing next to the scene. There was a subtle yet omnipresent light, more dense and without color, if we compare it with sun's or a bulb's light. I  had instant access to knowledge that what was happening was not really important or tragic and that I was  much more this being that I was feeling now (and nondestructive) rather my physical body and narrow life. And that life in physical body could be much greater also. Suddenly this man just stopped and looked at me, he was looking paralyzed and shocked as if he had "woken up" and run away, then I re-entered my physical body (as if I was vacuumed) and felt again the sadness and extreme tiredness.
