Bob S's Experience

Experience description:   

I think it was a dream, but was more real and vivid. I found myself inside a place. (like a building). I could look outside and see stars very close, like specks of light. Inside there were people working and one man who was in charge. In the dream I knew all of these people, but in waking life I knew none of them. I visited with 5 to 7 women all of whom I was close to. I was happy to see them and some of them were getting ready to go to work, some of them were coming back from work. The kind of work they did was helping people on earth, they would go into dreams and help people with life issues, or they would just go to people on earth and help them somehow. I was familiar with the work they did, I realized I used to do this myself before I was a person on earth, and for a moment I missed doing this, and wished I was there working again. One of the women asked me what I was doing there, and I said I needed to talk to (I said the mans name, but I can't remember it now) the man who was in charge of the place. I hugged many of the women and told them good bye. I went over to the man in charge and was having a conversation about my life on earth. "Why was it so hard" was the main focal point.

The man told me that he tried to warn me but I wouldn't listen. I was confused, and in a split second a memory was given to me, not shown but experienced. I remembered going to earth to be born, I was very happy and exited and couldn't wait to go live in a physical body on earth. The man in charge was pleading with me to wait, "it's too soon, it's not time yet" the man kept telling me as I was darting very happily to earth. (I was born two months early, and barely weighed 4 lbs.) That moment I knew why I was premature birth.

     Then the man told me most people choose 8 to 10 helpers that help them through life on earth, and help them accomplish what they are supposed to do, but I was in too much of a hurry and only chose 2 helpers. (I wish now that I would have asked who those helpers were, but at the time it didn't seem important.) I was shown why a certain person came into my life and remains a part of my life, this person had agreed to be a helper to me because I had only 2 'real' helpers.

   As soon as I returned to my body, ( if this was an OBE it felt like one) I woke up and knew so many things about my life I hadn't known before. It made more sense to me somehow.( NOW, I can't imagine being so exited to go to earth and live, but I was, and often wonder why). I've since tried to induce an OBE to go back to this place, without success. I'm curious if anyone else has had any similar experience?
