Hayo J's Experience
I was 14 years old and in my attic room, from nowhere....total happiness, I was somewhere else but I also wasn't, I just was it.
I haven't seen or heard people, angels, landscapes, tunnel or the road towards it or something like that. But I do think I was There, all at once, in the light. In all the love, in a certainty, in warmth, in the most beautiful thing I have ever felt. In something every human being is searching for.
After the first experience I had the same experience one week later. I knew very clearly how to have these experiences, by being open and honest. Something I try to be in an almost compulsive way.

Did you meet or see other beings? No.

Did you become aware of future events? Yes, I know exactly when I lie or do something "wrong", I feel and see a lot with other people.
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience you did not have prior to the experience? Uncertain, clear feeling....
Have you shared this experience with others? Yes, with my then girlfriend and a friend, my girlfriend believed I had had some kind of experience. But you can't get the essence across so in my idea it remained very earthly.

How do you currently view the reality of your experience. Experience was definitely real. I still experience the good that came of it which is prove to me.
Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience? Yes, I have tried to make my family happy in a compulsive way. I still want happiness for everyone and not just for one partner.
Have your religious beliefs/practices changed specifically as a result of your experience? Yes, predominating.
Following the experience have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience? Uncertain. I have used heroine once, it came a bit close but more in the physical way.
Did the questions asked and information you provided so far accurately and comprehensively describe your experience? Yes, but the essence can't be captured in words. What I have written is the best I can do with words.
