Bob G's Experience
" My Sunflower & Seeds of Light experience by Bob G"
I was driving along Wisconsin passing the Swenson's Ice Cream on the right past the Metro stop. I was heading south and was driving a light Blue Pacer. A funny little car that looked like a comical UFO.
I was thinking about the name for our renewable energy business that we were working on that was involved in Solar electric research as well as renewable energy. I had decided to name the company Terra Sol. ( Earth Sun )
at that moment I found myself above and a little to the right of myself, above the car, today 30 years later I can still see this image in my head clear as day.
Then I experienced an old weathered hand reaching down and planting a seed in dirt and patting the soil. from it a plant bloomed immediately and grew like Jack and the Beanstalk and became a Sunflower that bloomed and the head peeled back and then began to spin. The stalk drops away and as a globe forms under the spinning head the seeds shoot out in a helical pattern and surround the globe, the EARTH, in Seeds of Light. They dissipate, leaving the Earth in all its splendor and glory. And all is well.
I was back in the car. I apparently drove home. I was actually driving in light traffic but don't remember much. My mom was the first person I encountered when getting to where I lived on Porter Street about 8 or 10 blocks away. It apparently took her a few days to convince me that she wasn't with me in the car. She said I was very excited and babbling. I felt confused about what had just happened but I also knew that I was okay and it was okay though profound. It changed my life. I began a search to figure out what was wrong with me and my life which was a terrible mess at the time and among other things after a bit over two years I stopped using drugs and alcohol and entered long term counseling. I have been clean and sober for 26 years now and have a good life. I met my wife a year or so after getting sober and we have been married for 19 years and are still deeply in love. This and my recovery and our marriage is in itself a miracle as we had both come from families rife with alcoholism & drug abuse, mental illness, severe abuse , multiple trauma's, multiple divorces and in in generally massively dysfunctional behaviors and lifestyles. I have had a successful business in energy efficient lighting, I have dealt with many of the severest trauma's and dysfunctions and have a good and peaceful life.
I still wonder if there
is more I should do with this experience and so am glad to share it with
others. I have had both before this a range of other " psychic " first as a
teenage and later as a clean and sober adult. They all have been spontaneous
. Thank you God.
Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? Uncertain trouble with 14 years of drug abuse at time of event,
( daily marijuana , sporadic cocaine, extensive use of psychedelics over 12 years ).
strong history of use
of psychedelics but had not had any in at least 3 to 6 months at time of
event. event was spontaneous and UNLIKE anything I had ever experienced.
Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? No I was overwhelmed and in a form of ..shock. It took my mom several days apparently to convince me that she was not with me when it happened though I had the experience she was in the car with me as a passenger but she was not. she was the first person I encountered after I came home. I had no idea what it meant or what I should do and it took many years to learn, accept and come to terms with having had such a profound experience. feelings of both inadequacy and questioning dogged me but most of all the experience itself was utterly profound and powerful and positive and changed my life's direction radically. it was as if God was giving me a kick in the pants to say you are on the wrong path. your ( my) psychedelic spirituality is a crutch or a Trojan horse..THIS... is the REAL THING.
At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event? No though I was under tremendous work and financial stress, had a sever drug abuse problem as well as massive personal, family and psychological issues. I was anything but stable
What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience? completely aware, in 3 places at once.
1 ) driving the car
2) OBE above myself and to the right above and out of the car
3) EXPERIENCING this world changing event / phenomena
All in a matter of
maybe under 10 seconds.
Was the experience dream like in any way? no. it was super real.
Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? Yes see above,, that's a good joke ! see above !!
What emotions did you feel during the experience? I don't really feel I was in an "emotional" state. It just simply happened.
Though once the Vision
of light occurred It felt well...wondrous. clean. I want to say "good" but
that is not accurate. I felt I was experiencing something in advance what
everyone would experience someday and once we all did we all WOULD KNOW that
everything would be alright. I am clear this was NOT an apocalyptic event I WAS
experiencing as I have had at least one of those re 9 11. ( That was an
experience while on hallucinogens while in NYC in the early 70's right after
the World trades were finished and I saw the Towers fall and wash over me like
a wave. Years later when I saw it on TV I realized that that was what I had
seen 30 years earlier. Again there was no EMOTION attached to that event either
but I was also on a lot of psychedelics and the Seeds of Light I was sober ). I
have since had had other experiences that were not under any influence.
Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? no
LOCATION DESCRIPTION: Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or amazing creatures? Yes I was first in DC on Wisconsin Avenue ( described above ) and then I was I guess out in space watching the EARTH
Did you see a light? Yes Seeds of Light shot out in a helical pattern from the head of the Sunflower and wrapped the earth in sparkling trails of light , then dissipated and disappeared leaving the earth as it was.
Did you meet or see any other beings? No
Did you experiment while out of the body or in another, altered state? No
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? Uncertain not yet. still waiting. I believe I will experience this with everyone in my lifetime but have no way of being sure about that.
I have told close
friends about this and other events but don't proselytize or advertise or
preach about it in any way. I am in many ways a very open persons but really
value my privacy person. I am emotionally and in speaking my truth a very
"open" person but more on a one to one basis. I guess just this day,. that
moment my channel, as I sometimes describe it was WIDE OPEN.
Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different? Yes everything was clear and I was I looked back on it just that I guess I was in 3 places at once, but even that doesn't really say it correctly because in each "place" I was operating at a different level, almost like automatic driving the car, aware but watching from my OBE perspective or place and then EXPERIENCING my Sunflower Vision.
Did you have any sense of altered space or time? Yes My body was driving the car
My kind was watching over my body driving the car and my...consciousness ( ? ) was EXPERIENCING SOMETHING that was out of time.
I Believe now it was
something that will come about in time, will be profound for EVERYONE and we
will all be okay.
Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? Yes as described above
Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? No I was out of time while experiencing the Vision, out of this present time in my consciousness awareness as best as I can describe it
Did you become aware of future events? Yes this will come to pass
Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body? No it all happened very very fast
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience? I have had numerous experiences yes.
The most profound was when President Obama first spoke at the Kerry Edwards convention for the first time I KNEW within one or 2 minutes of his speech he would be the next President of the United States. I emailed everyone I knew the next day and they all thought I was crazy. I never once wavered from that knowledge all during his election even with Hillary challenging him. I had never been so sure of anything in my life before on such an important issue.
I also have a VERY
strong intuitive sense and in business when I KNOW something I am most often
correct and way ahead of others sometimes by months and years.
Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience? Yes It completely changed my life and probably saved me from death or severe mental illness or both. the path I was on I would not be alive today or if I was it would not be... good.
How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices? Moved me to clear up my life and search in a different way. I was doing my best to live a good life but I was severely hampered by a host of issues and behaviors and trauma's and problems as a result of the life I had experienced, the choices I had made which though were the best I could do, were killing me.
Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? Yes described in detail above
Have you shared this experience with others? Yes What emotions did you experience following your experience? stunned, shocked, excited, confused, intimidated, thrilled but kind of scared.
What was the best and worst part of your experience? The best was experiencing it and the grace to be chosen as a channel for this wonderful vision and that in all my faults and inadequacies I was open ENOUGH to experience it.
The worst part was the shock I felt after but this was also positive as it was like a kick in the pants " YOU ARE ON THE WRONG PATH BOB !" and it lead me to sobriety and health and a healthy relationship with a higher power and a good life well lived.The worst is not knowing what it truly means and if there is anything else for me to do besides share it when the opportunity arises and just know that what will be ..will be.
