Caroline's Experience

Experience description:   

I was in bed and had been sleeping but during the experience I was definitely not asleep.

I became aware of being enveloped in a beautiful white/gold light. The feeling was of being wrapped in total and indescribable love. It was euphoric and magnificent and filled my total being. it is impossible to describe the total bliss of the experience I just knew that I didn't want to leave ....I just wanted to stay connected to whatever this was. I was pure energy and aware of myself although I didn't have a body. there was the most beautiful sound although it was music as such... every sense was at the most heightened that I can imagine. there was no sense of time and no sense of things or beings....just this overwhelming love that I was part of.
