Bill S's Experience

Experience description:   

I first woke from my sleep but I was not awake and back as normal in the world. I was fully awake....not dreaming but aware that I was aware. I was moving, angled about the same as climbing a flight of stairs...like an escalator but just a pure movement without any mechanical means. I was passing a black ... very black cliff face, only on the side I was viewing. I was hearing the most dreadful high pitched  screaming sound. Perhaps like a ship moving down a slip way. I was thinking that I could not stand the sound and tried to force myself to escape this " Valley of the shadow of death ". After some time which was indeterminable I surfaced in a land of light. The light was not the normal color which we know but different. I think this land has a extensive range of the spectrum then we see everyday. Distances were also different. Distances offered no restriction to seeing. The surface of this land was like candy floss. I wandered without any sense of direction or purpose. I was confused but filled with a careless trust, without any fear what so ever. Ever thing seemed to be very vital and alive. There was the ultimate LOVE here. I felt no remorse for the love ones I had left. I was in total bliss. Time was not an issue. I had complete peace. I felt I had come HOME.

Out of the landscape a form of a elderly being formed...in the risk of being sexist I felt it to be Male. There was no question that the being was GOD. I felt the appearance was for my comfort...so I hope that covers that point. This was all normal to me and I felt the ultimate sense of LOVE, acceptance and belonging.  

GOD then arranged my life recall .... which was very unpleasant.. I was very ashamed of my gross failings. Yet I was shown total acceptance of me the person and I was loved. I recognized my failings and we joined as ONE...GOD was me and I was GOD. This fact can not be described, you had to be there...as one day we all will be...believe me.  

I was shown the Angels afar of my position and listened to the fantastic music, yes I know this reads like a Hollywood movie...but it was real...VERY REAL.

I was then given information which I no longer recall  but then I understood everything...everything. 

I was not to stay and found myself returning to Earth...not a very attractive place by comparison. 

I awoke back in my body...For some weeks after my Wife and Family were constantly amazed at my mental state...I was for a short time like a perfect Angel....Now I have the memory...but sorry to say no Angel...but I trust the better for my meeting with GOD.

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Yes     Words can be employed...but words can not convey the strength of feeling...words are a poor substitute for the event...Words cheapen the event. People are generally bored with hearing the story and tend to shift the subject elsewhere. The event is not a social subject for discussion...it's far too personal to have meaning to others.

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?          No       Well unless the fact that I stopped breathing was termed "life threatening"

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?    When I joined with GOD

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

If your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience was different from your normal every day consciousness and alertness, please explain:            When I joined with GOD

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes     Most people find it odd.. and perhaps me as well.

Generally I keep it to myself...it cheapens the event to tell others.
