James R's Experience

Experience description:   

I was alone in a friend's lounge sitting watching the TV, my wife and her sister was in the kitchen chatting. 

I can remember just blinking, but when I opened my eyes I knew, although my flesh eyes did not open, my spirit eyes did, I will tell you now what I perceived. The room was in a low amber light, as if it had been turned down by a dimmer switch but it was of a warm amber color, the TV was either silent or very quiet, I cannot remember which, but it was definitely still on. Everything is still very clear to me even after so many years, even the program I was watching (The Quest) 

Now this is the best bit, I felt so warm, so comforted, so full of love compassion, it felt like I was packed from head to toe with soft cotton wool, that is the only way I can describe it, there was no fear or concern, it was MY natural state, it was my spirits natural state. 

I did rise from where I was sitting, I did in fact walk on the floor, I could feel it beneath my feet, I turned to my right and was aware of my mortal body still sitting where I had left it with eyes closed, but again there was no fear no concern, no "bloody hell what's going on" as I have said, it was a natural state for my spirit to be in, it was in fact free, all was natural. 

We move on, although I could not hear the TV, I was all of a sudden aware of some commotion, from where I do not know, there was shouting, cars screeching outside, noises, then when I turned I saw an old good friend his name is Mark sitting in one of the chairs in the room with his hands on the arms, he said nothing and I thought, "that's Mark but he is in Ireland" still not really concerned, just that he was meant to be in Ireland, I never said a word but just looked at him.

Then all of a sudden I opened my eyes in my mortal body, the TV and lighting was instantly as it was before my experience. 

I went into the kitchen and asked what all the noise was that I had heard, to be told that they had heard nothing at all, I did not tell them of my experience at this time, why I do not know. 

This all happened at around 12 midnight, at 12am the next day a guy I know came in and said we best sit down, this was what he said. 

At 12oc last night Mark whilst riding his motorcycle had, had a bad accident and was killed outright when he crashed his bike into a tree in Ireland. 

Now, I feel that for some reason unknown to myself, I was prepared by something or somebody to be able to see Mark and at that time, I was in the exact state (being of spirit) that he was himself in, if I had seen him knowing he was a spirit then this body this person I am, would have probably been terrified and not been able to hold it together. 

Now I feel this is a very important thing to add. The feeling I had whilst in the spirit was a very very strong, concentrated if you like, feeling you get when you are calm, when you do good for someone and see the results of your kindness and love, I do not mean ego, genuine love and kindness. So this similarity betwixt the feeling of spirit, and your mortal self is very close, it proves to me undoubtedly that you must allow your spirit to guide you in your life, if you do this then you will not be harmed, you cannot be killed, for there is no end and there really is no "Death" 

If we, me, you, all of mankind can raise our vibration to such an extent, we will all experience that so strong feeling of loves fulfillment, I know it is available to all, I have been in such a state, I would love to feel that way again as it is the way, the love, the peace, the joy that has been promised us by Jesus himself, it is the way of the universe. 

Let me say this also, at this time I was not having a near death experience, I was a healthy person, I have tried to replicate this experience but alas no joy. Short of destroying my earthly coil, it could not be done.

But when we are all together as one energy, we can be as near as a physical being can be, the closer we become with our higher selves, the nearer to this experience we will be, I for one long to be at one, or as one with my higher self. 

When my vibrations are at their highest and no less, I then feel as much of this experience again as I can on my journeys path in the illusion of time. 

I have no reason as to lie to anyone here, the only thing I get out of it is knowing I can use my experience to maybe eliminate the most fearful of fears, that has been used to control us.
