Dawn C Experience



When I was a child, between the age of 5-16, I used to have out of body experiences regularly, which at the time I did not realise were O.B.E’s, as I had no knowledge as a child of what they were. I just presumed I was having my usual weird dreams, until as an adult, I read about O.B.E’s, and the penny dropped. I also had a few very unpleasant experiences of malevolent entities around me when I had O.B.E’s, which also scared me to death, which was why I used to fear going to sleep so much.

I used to get a vibrating rhythmic noise in my head prior to having these experiences as a child, which made me very fearful, as I seemed to have no control over it. I was always trying to keep myself awake to try and stop it happening, but I would always have to give in to it in the end, as I obviously could not manage to stay awake for that long (I was always very tired  at school not surprisingly). Because of my fear of going to sleep, and the night terrors I also suffered, I was thought to be disturbed by something (how insightful!) and was prescribed Ativan at the age of 7 (a powerful anxiety drug), which basically just knocked me out cold. My mum eventually stopped giving it to me, as she said it turned me into a little zombie during the day.

This happened a few nights a week, but petered off the older I got, as I learnt how to interrupt the process, and it gradually ceased happening around the age of 16 when I left home. Very occasionally as an adult I would get the vibrational noise prior to sleep, but managed to interrupt it quickly before it progressed any further, as it still scared me.

In  2008, an anti-viral medication I was taking, had made me very anemic and feel very weak. One evening, I was just laying on my bed thinking about things, when I started to get the vibrational noise in my head that I once knew so well as a child. Because I felt so weak, I had no energy to try and fight it, so just thought ‘what the hell, go with it, what’s the worst thing that could happen?’  I totally surrendered myself to the vibrational noise, and let myself completely relax. 

Within seconds, my body was outlined with an bright orange light, that seemed almost electric, and it permeated my physical form, making my senses extremely heightened, my whole body felt ‘alive’ and fizzing with energy! This light continued to pervade my form, until I noticed my physical form becoming transparent, but still with the orange aura around me. As I noticed I was becoming transparent, I was instantly transported from my bedroom to a place above the earth, into the ether, where I could actually see the earth below me. As I was taking in my surroundings, I felt completely calm, then suddenly started receiving holographic type images in front of me. They were super fast images of events that had occurred in my life, events throughout history, mathematical calculations and endless reams of information in what seemed a massive download. As I was receiving all this information, I understood it all, and remember thinking ‘oh yeah, I get it all now’, and instantly understood everything being shown to me.  Then, my whole being was then filled with a huge wave of love, and I was shown that everything we do effects each other, as we are all connected to this universal love, in spirit and on the earth. Every human, animal, and everything in nature, every atom, is all connected via this universal love, which felt like a beautiful fulfilling peace, a loving warmth, and a connection of being one family, all being one and the same. I was so happy bathing in this amazing feeling of love, and felt connected to everyone and everything by it. Then, as fast as I had got there, I was transported back into my physical body, and was back in my room, with my husband lying next to me. I was a bit miffed to have left that wonderful feeling of oneness, and wanted to go back, but continued to ‘fizz’ for minutes all over my body, and filled with amazement at what had just happened!

I was trying to remember the information I was given, but it was too much to comprehend, but the overall message that stayed with me was.... that we are all connected, and the purpose of our lives was to love and help one another, as this would end all the wars and greed on the earth, and help end the needless suffering of many in our world.

Then, without even imparting a single word to my unaware husband about what had just occurred, I fell into a deep sleep. I woke in the morning completely transformed by the experience, as it changed my whole perception of life and the afterlife, and had given me an insight into a different realm I always felt existed. 

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?      Uncertain     I was being treated with interferon and ribavirin B for Hep C, which stopped my thyroid from functioning. I was mentally and physically tired.

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words?        No     

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?       No     

What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience?    totally awake and alert. Eyes open.

Was the experience dream like in any way?           no, it was completely real.

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?         Uncertain     I could sort of see my form, but it was transparent, with an orange aura.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?           Fear at first, then submission to the experience, then complete Amazement, wonder, complete joy, understanding and pure love. Then on return, sad to leave that place, but feeling of serenity and purpose.

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           yes, a vibrational rhythmic noise in my head preceding OBE

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 in a void, in space, and could see the earth below.

Did you see a light?         Uncertain     Only around my body

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     I felt I was shown events from the past and future, but could not recall them on return, as too much was given in such quick succession, although I understood it all at the time it was given.

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?  Uncertain     Its hard to put it into words, but I felt like my brain power was limitless, and my body felt like it had an electrical charge around it which heightened everything I felt!

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?           Uncertain     It felt like it happened quite quick, in around 10 minutes, but my husband who had been reading next to me on the bed, was fast asleep when I came back into my physical body.

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?           Yes    I knew everything, and understood everything I was shown. I feel I was given the truth of our existence and purpose. This knowledge was an understanding, that we are all spiritually connected to this universal love, so we need to consider this in every action we take on earth. Love was the answer to everything in the end, as if we all loved one another and our world, we would not be destroying it and each other. The message was simple, but clear. I was shown complex knowledge in images, and mathematical form, and I believe I now have this knowledge in my brain. It was given to me, but I am unable to access it in this form, with our limited cognitive potential. Where I went, there was no limits on the mind, or thought.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?              No     

Did you become aware of future events?           Uncertain     I have a real ominous feeling for our future, if we don't turn things round very soon.

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?     No      Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience? Uncertain     I am more empathetic in how I relate to people.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?         Yes    I don't worry so much about what happens when you die. I don't believe there is one religion that is right. I think it is all one and the same thing, with just man's different interpretations of a higher power or existence.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?    I care for others in my daily life, which is my purpose, as I was shown. Unfortunately, I have never felt the depth of love I felt in that O.B.E experience here in my earthly life, which saddens me. I  feel there is no hope for our world, the way it is going, and that also dampens my spirit on a daily level.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? Yes    I have a sense of loss which I cannot shake, having glimpsed something so beautiful. I still feel I have not found my true purpose, yet!

Have you shared this experience with others?           Yes    If I tell others who I know have had similar or unexplained experiences, of course they are open to what I am saying, and it confirms that their experiences are valid too. If I talk to a person with no knowledge or experience of these things, or someone who has a closed mind, they obviously think I am bonkers!  Some want to believe what I am saying, but cant perceive it to be true. I cannot know how others may have been affected by what I have told them.

What emotions did you experience following your experience? I felt somewhat flat. A real low after such a real high. That has stayed with me somewhat. I also feel somewhat puzzled as to why I was shown this information, if I am unable to use it for any real benefit on a wider scale, other than my limited efforts. I feel inadequate as a human, to fully reach a potential to which I accessed briefly, but now cannot access.

What was the best and worst part of your experience? The best was feeling that wave of love fill my whole being, as I connected to the universal love. The worst was coming back into my physical body, and feeling the heightened senses and elation gradually go back to normal.I would have happily stayed in that place.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?      No

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?       No     

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?             Uncertain     Any description cannot ever match the awesomeness of the event.
