Christina R's Experience

Experience description:   

I had been writing a diary for days in which I stated my need to seek for answers about life, death, where we come from, etc.. My grandmother had died that year and the event had filled me with many questions.

I was asleep at night and suddenly I found myself floating in the room; I had no body but I felt I did. I remember looking down at my legs but they weren't there. I remember feeling so much joy as I floated up, down and spinned around having a wonderful time, it was an incredible sensation. Also, I had panoramic vision. It's difficult to explain but somehow I was able to see from all around my head as if my eyes were behind my head too. There was no sense of time either. I don't know how long I was out of my body.

I felt so happy that I went out the window and started to fly over the town. It wasn't night, it was daytime and the things in the town didn't seem exactly the same. I remember thinking that things looked a bit different, as if there were different trees in our garden. I flew over the houses, the buildings, and saw familiar people outside their houses. Then I thought "why not go to the beach?" as soon as the thought came to my mind I was instantly there.

Then I thought, well now I want to go out into space and I went up like a rocket but all of a sudden I felt very cold, it frightened me and I awoke in bed. My head hurt a little but a thought came to my mind: We are all made of the energy of Love so I can use this energy to heal myself. I then put my hands over my head and imagined the energy spinning inside of me. My headache disappeared.

I remember feeling overflowing love the following days: I felt love for every stranger I encountered on the streets, knowing that we were all made of the same energy (love) and in esence all conected somehow, even the stones, the trees, everything had the same energy. The feeling of unconditional love for everyone faded away as the weeks passed but my beliefs haven't changed a bit.

I learnt about Reiki (and found out I did it instinctively) and have helped relatives, friends and of course myself with Reiki.

After this experience I had another one in which I flew again. I also had five encounters with deceased relatives: my grandmother, grandfather, father, mother and father-in-law (whom I had never met because he had died when my husband was only 16).

The most interesting of all was the encounter with my father. When my father was alive we used to have long conversations about religion, philosophy, and we promised each other that whoever died first would let the other know all about the afterlife.

I found him in a beautiful meadow writing on a typewriter and we hugged each other with so much love and joy. We spoke for a very long time. He told me all about what he was doing in his afterlife, what he had felt when he died and many other things. It filled me with peace and love. All communication with deceased ones is telepathic and they are all healthy and somewhat younger than when they died.
