Annie's Experience

Experience description:   

For almost a year now I have experimenting with various OBE techniques. I used to have them a lot when I was little and was not totally sure what was going on at that time. Throughout the past year I have had many self-induced OBEs. Lately I have been able to hear voices in the vibrational state. Sometimes I sense these are the voices of beings on the other side, enlightened beings, spirit guides, etc. When I hear the voices I am usually in a vibrational state, awaiting to leave my body. When I hear the voices, i usually do not leave my body but just lay there and listen. When hearing the voice this morning, I didn't see anything. I just felt my vibrations getting somewhat "different" and suddenly I was hearing a man's voice. It was muffled at first, and then I seemed to tune in my inner radio and he became much more clear. The following is not an exact quote. Much was said during the experience and some parts were muffled. However, I will do my best to give exactly what I was feeling, hearing, etc-with no bias to my own opinions or views on issues. Here is the conversation I had with the man: 

"Hello. My name is The Buddha. I am here for your assistance and am amble to help with whatever questions or concerns you may have." 

"Thank you so much for communicating with me today. It is a pleasure to meet you." 

This was not the voice of the spirit guide I had been contacting recently. He was different and had a different vibrational presence. It was interesting how he referred to Himself as The Buddha. I think he did this to show that he was an enlightened being. His voice sounded like a white man.  I thought what I may what to ask or learn about. I paused and was unable to say something right away. 

"Go ahead, sat it, don't be afraid", He chuckled.

"I'm gay."

It was the first thing that came to mind. Being a somewhat closeted lesbian, I often wonder what the other side has to say about homosexuality. 

The voice laughed excitedly." Of Course you're gay!" He laughed. "If God had created all people to be alike then you wouldn't be gay. Everyone would be completely straight." 

After this he began talking in like lecture style about Christianity and the concept of sin-and how even atheists can sometimes see homosexuality as being morally wrong. He talked for a long time and I lot I have trouble remembering. At the time, however, I felt very enlightened. I also felt much more accepting of myself and who I was.  

"Any more questions?" He asked. I was going to ask another when it seemed as though another voice was asking a question instead. A woman seemed to be asking something and he began answering with a booming confident voice. It appeared to me that I was not the only one asking questions at this unique education seminar. There were others listening and taking part in the discussion.
