Experience description:   

I was asleep and having a dream about standing outside a large building I was about to go into.  My niece Isabelle who was 4 at the time ran up to me with her arms outstretched so I picked her up.  I looked about for my sister Susan and her siblings but she was all alone. I asked her 'What are you doing here?'  It was a normal dream up to this point. She very maturely told me 'You know why I'm here' I realized she was speaking to me through her eyes, telepathically.  Her eyes were the most beautiful and sparkly loving eyes I have ever seen like they were perfect. I thought 'What a weird thing to say' but shortly after started realizing why she had chosen to be my niece and why I was her Aunty. Once I fully understood how our lives fitted together I then starting understanding the next level and the next and the next to the point that I understood how the entire universe worked.  Weirdly I couldn't tell the difference between the things I had done already and the things I was going to do because they were all DONE already.  Time past, current and future all combined.  I also felt like a thread or strand of a web that was woven through the fabric of everything that I had been shown like my very existence was going to make all this happen.

I looked back at her with a huge smile and appreciation and said 'Oh yeah - I do know!' 

I then started noticing memories, bad thoughts and experiences I had had in my life starting to physically leave my body while a physical light entered it. It was lightness and light and unconditional love all in one.  My arms were tingling with the feeling. None of these bad experiences or reasons I didn't like people mattered a jot any longer as I realized I loved everyone - unconditionally. As I filled to the brim with love I thought 'This is the best feeling I've ever had in my life and I'm asleep!!'  I didn't feel like I could handle it any more.  It was so magnificent feeling perfect and truly loved.

Shortly after I exploded like a Skyrocket into the Universe - BOOOOMM! Upwards, outwards, across and the feeling intensified tenfold.  Now I didn't feel like I had a normal 'body' any longer but still had my consciousness and the amazing feeling.

Next I felt like I was back in my 'body' again and started feeling unconditional love for everyone I had ever met in my life.  It was intense loving people that I felt that on Earth I did not or could not. I then started feeling all their love back on me.  Wow they loved me true.  After that my love extended to the people that I was going to meet in my life but hadn't yet.  And again I felt their love back in a wave over me. Finally I felt love for every person that ever existed in the world and yes they unconditionally loved me too.  I felt it all.

I woke up remembering it all bar the knowledge about how the universe worked.  This was blocked already. Just the feeling of knowing remained about that.

You're beautiful!' and then walked back down the hill to hug me.  In front of what was mostly males coming to the event.
