Experience description:   

It was sometime in the early morning (around 7 a.m. on a Saturday or Sunday). I was tired and went to lay down in my room and I fell asleep.

Next thing that I am aware of is that I am somewhere else. It makes me think of a cabin in the woods, it was dark, had no lights on but there were huge clear windows in the front of the house which you could see the moon and trees/a forest. I was with three other people, two were my parents and the third was a girl I have never seen before. We were staying there, sleeping. We were sleeping on a couch at the back of the cabin. I heard/saw the girl scream and looked to where she was looking. I could see out the windows, a u.f.o. landed in the woods. Now, I have had many, many alien/u.f.o. type dreams, all were horrible dreams. So somehow I am partially conscious and while seeing the space ship land/crash I was thinking "Oh brother, another one of those dreams" and prepared myself to start running. I was greatly surprised.

Near the windows.. I see a brilliant white/gold light emit from the ceiling. As it comes towards the floor it gets wider until eventually it somehow turned into a egg shaped portal looking thing. I remember thinking "Wow, the aliens must have killed us and we are crossing over and I don't even remember being killed". Then, I see a being come out of the portal. Just.. a being of light, is the only way I can describe it. Sort of tall, and emitting a brilliant golden white light, just beautiful and calming. I don't remember seeing arms or legs or even a face but I remember that there was a turban or something of that nature on the beings head. Even that.. put off that warm glow, brilliantly sparkling. After seeing it, I remember hearing my mother say "They've come to take Dorian". I got off the couch walked over to the middle of the room with my parents and the girl on the left side and the being of light and the portal on the right. I remember being totally surprised that only I was going, that I had somehow died. I remember seeing my parents sobbing, so sad. I hugged and kissed them. The girl was doing nothing, just standing there. I didn't feel intense sadness like they did, I felt free and inquisitive. I faced the being of light, not a word spoken.. I just knew to go into the light/the portal and I did.

That was the most amazing part of it all. *As soon* as I walked into it, I was again somewhere else. I felt weightless, I felt... carefree. No worries, just a state of pure calm. I was at the top of a large (grey/white swirly marble, I think) staircase. I was met by a person who looked... normal. Didn't look like the being before. He didn't say anything but I had the strong notion that his name was Chris. I had never seen him before in my life. The place itself looked amazing. White walls, *huge* windows all the way cross the front and really, the place was big. It made me think of.. an office. Hundreds and hundreds of people milling about. They looked like humans and of all shapes and sizes. "Chris" took me down the stairs to an area where there were desks and... computers (ironically enough). I was standing, looking around, being stunned by the cleanliness, the brightness. There were no artificial lights, that I saw anyway. I assume Chris was looking up things about me, I don't know.

I do remember that from the time I met him, I asked, "How did I die?" and he didn't answer, nobody did. I figured I had to have been dead to be where I was, especially since I was the only one when there was my parents there too, if the aliens had invaded and chopped us up, we all would be there. (my logic haha) The energy there was so, free and there were no.. intense emotions. I remember wondering how I would take care of my family and friends if I am not physical but then thought of a person I had knew that had previously crossed over years ago who I know watches over a friend of mine and it was like "Oh, I'll just be like Emma" and that was enough for me to quit wondering. It was the overwhelming feeling of... being weightless but with complete control, not like being up in space. I felt no physical weight. I felt calm, loved, happy, content. I was and am no longer afraid of death. Not at all. If it is anything like what I experienced, it is insane to be afraid at all.

Anyway, Chris was finished doing whatever he was doing at the computer and we walked the opposite side where there were normal-sized glass doors (they were in the windows) and there were many people walking in and out. It was beautiful outside. Healthy fresh grass, gorgeous skies, trees, birds.. very color rich. I was standing with Chris and there was someone else but I don't remember who that Chris was talking to (not sure if he used his mouth to speak or not) and in the middle of them talking I hear a loud but subtle knock come from nowhere. I ask Chris what in the world was that and he said "That is a parent's prayer" or something very similar to that.

I remember him always having a smile and he had a bigger smile when he said that. We went to some sort of exercise part (I think it was) (this is all in the same building) and I was walking on some machine and Chris was talking to me and somehow I was watching this.. him talking to me from a third person perspective, like as if I were floating in front of "us" watching, I couldn't hear anything he said, like watching a silent film but everything else going on there, I could hear.

Everything after that is rather sketchy. It was an amazing experience. I don't know if it was a dream or astral travel or what. Maybe a bit of both? The whole experience was so real that when I had "woke up" I was saddened and extremely shocked that I came back and alive as well. I didn't even have the feeling of waking up. It was more like I had just opened my eyes after resting my head a second.

It has helped to stop a good many of my phobias. I don't have a fear of death so I am much less afraid of falling. My life isn't as limited as it was.
