Irma B's Experience

Experience description:   

So many they don't really matter, only that I now know that this life is a dream and crossing over is the only reality. OBE, astral travels, messages from deceased people, instant telepathy, "seeing" what goes on in people's lives, healing people, being in more than one place at once and being "everywhere". all of this can be verified by people who received the messages I got from deceased relatives, plenty healing testimonies, being in two places testimonies, etc. 

nothing special was happening in my life ever. I think I was lucky to be born blind in one eye because ever since I was a child, whenever I told adults what I saw and experienced they'd tell me it was my "eye problem", lack of vision. they never told me it wasn't true so I never shut it off. now, my brother...... hum... he's got absolutely no physical problems and has even more experiences than me and at will, mine just happen. brother was chosen by Carlos Castaneda to work with him for many years. he's done other works too.

At the time of your experience was there an associated life-threatening event?   No  

Was the experience difficult to express in words?....Yes....yes, especially the "void" which when I entered I just felt: "to be or not to be", "am I or aren't I". 

question 6 below is irrelevant as time does not exist there, Q 7 idem as I can't compare the senses here and what is on the other side, like apples and oranges

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?....More consciousness and alertness than normal    the second I enter into any of the altered states there's total consciousness and alertness, "awakening", "enlightenment".....everything is just so clear, there's no judgment, no suffering, no competition, no ambition, just being. sometimes the experience has been just this amazing "bliss" for lack of better words.

Please compare your vision during the experience to your everyday vision that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.    everything is so clear there, this is just a dream although I don't understand why I can't do the things I do on the other side on this side when I know none of this is real. like here I am in a movie set by choice and I know it is not real but cannot escape it while being here.

Please compare your hearing during the experience to your everyday hearing that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.    there's no hearing, it's as if everything is telepathic or I already know.

Q 11 below, I do not even recognize my body when I leave it, I do see it though.

Did you see or hear any earthly events that were occurring during a time that your consciousness / awareness was apart from your physical / earthly body?    Yes   in OBE I can see and hear everything happening while I'm out of my body. other times I go to places I don't know and interact with people and ask myself: "how can it be that they don't know that I'm not here?", but then I remind myself that I'm I two places at once.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?....depends which experience, but there's always this feeling of "normal", nothing unusual.  

Did you pass into or through a tunnel?....No....

Did you see an unearthly light?....Yes....during some experiences, not all of them.

Did you seem to encounter a mystical being or presence, or hear an unidentifiable voice?....I encountered a definite being, or a voice clearly of mystical or unearthly origin    just as said above.

Did you encounter or become aware of any deceased (or alive) beings?....Yes    too many to describe here. most amazing, a message from a mom to his 17 year old son who wanted to commit suicide. when I called the son and gave him the message, he told me he knew it was his mom who'd sent the message before I even told him so. 

Did you become aware of past events in your life during your experience?....No....not me, but another of my four brothers describes events that happened before he was born in detail!

Did you seem to enter some other, unearthly world?....A clearly mystical or unearthly realm....neither unfamiliar nor strange, nor mystical. unearthly yes, but it was familiar, known, normal, real.

Did time seem to speed up or slow down?....Everything seemed to be happening at once; or time stopped or lost all meaning....time doe not exist

Did you suddenly seem to understand everything?....Everything about the universe....EVERYTHING, no beginning-no end, infinity, etc. but I easily forget and have no words to describe that which is not of here.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?....No....

Did you come to a border or point of no return?....I came to a barrier that I was not permitted to cross; or was "sent back" against my will....I was very young, my paternal grandmother died. I was not told of her death but I spoke to her and she invited me to join her. I wanted to but was not allowed by others there.

Did scenes from the future come to you?....No....sometimes the future appears to me and it is so, but this all happens n this earthly plane.

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge or purpose?....Yes....yes, just knowing everything, there were no questions, everything was so clear.

Discuss any changes that might have occurred in your life after your experience:....Moderate changes in my life........

Did you have any changes in your values or beliefs after the experience that occurred as a result of the experience?    Yes    

Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience?....No    

Have you ever shared this experience with others?   Yes   I've always shared right after my experiences with partner/husband, brothers, sisters or close friends. they're always interested in my experiences, never surprised as they often have unusual experiences when we are together.

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience?....Uncertain     I'd heard in TV. shows or read in magazines but did not believe in them. this knowledge did not affect my experience, especially because those other experiences very often spoke of alight, Jesus Christ, etc. this I have not experienced. 

What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:....Experience was definitely real    it's more real than "life on this realm".

What do you believe about the reality of your experience at the current time:....Experience was definitely real....experiences were and continue to be real.

Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?....Uncertain....

Have your religious beliefs/spiritual practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?....No   

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience?....Yes    already explained above

Did the questions asked and information that you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?    Uncertain    a bit late and tired to explain and describe each one of them. common denominator: time does not exist, these experiences happen in a different realm where there's only "peace", they're more real than what I'm writing here :)    

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience?....too many experiences to write about or add to.
