Dolly J's Experience

Experience description:   


It was afternoon and I had a bad headache so I laid down on the bed.  I was definitely not asleep! Although I saw a light in the corner of the ceiling, I believed it to be something to do with the headache.  

At first, I heard a female voice tell me to sleep.  My heart was racing, because this voice out of nowhere scared me.  I covered my eyes with the bed sheet and after a few minutes I peeped out.  It was still there.  I covered my eyes again. To explain what happened next, any one would say I was dreaming, but I know it was not a dream.

A being of light, who was human shaped but made of light, reached out to me with both hands. I held the hands and floated up through the ceiling.  I went and up, up, and up. I was looking down on my house from a great height.  I could see my husband and my children playing.  I had this amazing knowledge and understanding of everything and the reason for life.  I knew that the wonderful, amazing love that follows after what we call death, Is really being born. We are but a small seed on earth, that expands into the most magnificent awakening.  Nothing of life's experiences can come close to its magnificence.  I asked questions and was answered. Then down, down, down, we went with the Being still holding on to me.  It is as if we were flying.  We sat upon the apex of the roof of my house, next to the chimney.  I could see every single detail; in the cement that was holding the chimney bricks, I saw where a coin had been cemented into the chimney.  It was an old English penny dated 1921.  I clearly saw it.  Then down through the roof, I was placed gently back on to the bed.  I was smiling, happy, and no headache. I shared the amazing event with my family, who all said it was a dream. 

Fifteen years later, the builder repairing roof tiles gave me a penny coin he had taken from the cement in the chimney.  It was dated 1921.

Did you have a sense of knowing,  special knowledge,  universal order and/or purpose?    Yes    I asked what seemed like thousands of questions, I could write a book there was so many.  She showed me some things in picture form too.

I asked about the earth.  The earth had no big bang because it has always been and will always be.  It is not the solid form that we see. I was shown a city, modern and tall, beneath it.  Layer after eternal layer of civilizations, and buildings went right to the core of the earth, where they melted away.  The earth was like a big round doughnut, constantly turning inside out and being reborn.  The same with what we call the universe. I asked if we evolved from fish. She giggled and explained that every single shape, form, color, size of every imaginable creature has been and will be again.  She said that we too are such a creature. I asked, 'Where do you live? Is there really a heaven?  She showed me the light, which was so bright, I knew it to be the sun.  She explained about heat and how only the human body can not approach it.  All things come from the sun and the light, and then return to it.  She says that there is no beginning and no end, for all things are eternal.  I asked about love and hate.  She told me that there is only love and fear.  That's just a tiny bit of the conversation.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?    Yes    I wasn't allowed to go into the beautiful light.  Although it was so full of love, it drew me to it.  I wanted to go; but knew that if I went, then I couldn't come back.

Did you become aware of future events?    Yes    I was shown my husband was going into the light without me.  He later died of cancer.

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?    Yes    I wanted to stay with her, But I was shown my family, and felt that she wanted me to go back to them.

I had to go back to tell them how wonderful everything was, and that nothing was ever worth worrying about.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?    I have been blessed with a wisdom that I can not pass on, an understanding I can not teach.  I am not afraid of death. I live a happy life, with an amazing appreciation of nature from that day forward.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?   Yes   

Have you shared this experience with others?    Yes    People listen with interest,  most think I'm a lunatic. My family believes me.  If there is sadness or problems, we have a saying, 'A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS.'

The worst part...There wasn't a worst part.
