JoAnn T's Experience

Experience description:   

I was walking through my home and thinking about all I had read about transformation.  I realized that you really need to get in touch with what you don't know in order to change.  that is, what you hold in the sub-conscious

mind.  I decided that there is only ONE who knows everything.  so I began to take evidence of my feelings after every incidence that bother me and ask for healing for that part of my mind that desired those feelings.  I began to have visions and sleepwalking.  Every night at about 3am I would sleepwalk into my dining room and sit at the table with known masters and they would tell me how the body and mind work and can be healed.  During the next 9 months I healed epilepsy, and old pain from injuries.  I had many out of body experiences.  I began to know sooner and sooner what I had held in my mind.  when I knew, the part of my body that held those thoughts that were unhealed began to instantly heal. 

I did see a psychologist at this time.  One thing that did not heal however was my heart. It got worse and I ended up in a heart clinic.  After many tests my M.D. told me that I had blockages on all three sides of my heart and needed to have open heart surgery.  first I had to have a catheterization, and then I would be flown by helicopter to another hospital for the surgery. 

My M.D. came to me after the cath. and told me I was fine and could go home.

I said how could I be, I saw the tests just a couple of days ago and saw the blockages.  And then I said, well I'll go on a diet and loose weight and jog  ad eat better.  He said " don't change a thing, your heart is not only fine, its' perfect, keep on doing what you are doing. We don't understand what happened, but your heart turned literally upside down in your chest and you no longer have the blockages or the valve problem. 

I went home then, knowing that I had passed onto the next lifetime without dying.  I could not even stand to hear my name anymore and I'm now known as Jaya.  I have more and more visions and teachings..  My hands were lifted at night and placed on my body.  I saw the story held there and felt the emotions I'd had at the time of certain traumas.  I saw the path I took because of the trauma and heard what I said to myself the. Then I heard the truth of me and I would shake and my body would increase in circulation and health. 

Several months later I had a healing session and within 15 minutes I began to shake from head to toe like being in shock.  I could hear the others but could not talk because I was seeing my whole life go before my eyes.  I learned more and more about myself. The next day my hands were glowing with light even in the daytime.  I then couldn't touch anyone else without hearing the thoughts held in they're body.  I began to know the ancient healings.  I studied healing, but every time I closed my eyes I learned more then my teacher did.  

I have since then talked with Danion Brinkly about this and he said that I did what he did, but without dying.  I passed on to the next lifetime without dying.  there have been many more psychic happenings since then. I am able to teach how to change your mind and transform.  I'm writing this because not everyone wants to hear these types of experiences and though I'm excited about it, its lonely because I can't always talk about the feelings of love and bliss and tragedy I've known..

At the time of your experience was there an associated life-threatening event?   Uncertain  I was told that I had to have heart surgery and it was life threatening.

I went through a transformation instantly while in the hospital and my heart was immediately perfect.

Was the experience difficult to express in words?  Yes     It was hard because some people wanted to know, but just so they could talk about they're experience, which was not like  what I was trying to convey.  Just my very close friends understood because they knew me.  I wanted to tell everyone, but soon learned I couldn't. I knew we were all perfect, but there were changes we must make in how we think. I know that we never die.  We are at home with God.  Our minds are very powerful and we are co-creators and can change our lives.

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?    When I was receiving the healing and saw my life go before my eyes and experienced divine love.

How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal everyday consciousness and alertness?      More consciousness and alertness than normal   I understood instantly.  Being shown my life in pictures or visions without many words, I knew so much more than words could explain.  Beyond a doubt I knew I was healed and loved.  I was so different after that.  My friends thought I was dying and not telling them.

Please compare your vision during the experience to your everyday vision that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.
   I knew this was of God. It was showing me what I didn't know in such a short time.  I could understand with compassion, not judgment of myself.  I KNEW beyond doubt that I never knew love before this.  Much was shown me and I understood volumes.

Please compare your hearing during the experience to your everyday hearing that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.
   There were others there but I remained focused on the vision.  Not so much hearing, but knowing.  Afterwards, I had many teachings that I heard even with my eyes open and while others were talking to me.

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?   Uncertain   One time much later, I had left my body during meditation and saw that my teacher had left the room and had a cigarette. and then came back in.  This was true.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?   Shaking, deep breathing, couldn't stay still.  Tears, confusion about what was going on.  these were cleared up later when I thought about it and accepted it.

I felt happy and excited and loved..

As I was shown my life from the time I was born to present time, I heard that I did not know love and that is why my heart closed.  Also what I thought was love was hurting me and was really hate. But now that I have experienced real love I will always remember this and allow it in.

Did you encounter or become aware of any beings who previously lived on earth who are described by name in religions (for example: Jesus, Muhammad, Buddha, etc.)?   Yes   Before that time in the hospital, I had.  Yoga Nanda told me I was here to bring the disciples home.  I saw Jesus and had communion with him. I cannot write this experience and can only tell it in person to someone I trust will understand.  Part of what he said was:  "Your burdens are too heavy for others, but to me you are light, and I will carry you the rest of your life. I have entered you, I am the rose and the rose is in your heart, and the seed is in the rose, and you are the God seed and will seed others".  Yoga Nanda led me to a teacher that he had me meet and wanted me to help him, he has led to 5 others.  I "saw" what they were with holding from others and used the words,  "you will never teach this again in this capacity, if you do not teach the truth"  They wouldn't and have never taught since. I seen and communicated with Emmanuel Swedenborg.  I even became him for a couple of days.  Also St. Michael. He had a very large sword and placed it at my throat.

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   I know that the answers I get are for me .  That I don't need to get the All that I learn out there.  I'm not afraid of God.  He doesn't punish.  We have more to do with the world then He does, because we created it.  I live my experiences when I need to and pay attention to what my emotions and feelings are so they can be corrected in my mind if they need to be.  I love more and don't need to do a lot about it but just be.   I am not alone.

Have you ever shared this experience with others?  
Yes  I shared right away.  It was just considered to be my opinion.  I wanted them to know how much we are really loved.  They thought I was bragging.  Not my best friends though.  Many have changed because of my experience.  Now that I'm a teacher of healing I bring parts of what happened to me into my healing classes.  I don't feel so frantic to get the word out now.

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience?   No  

What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:   Experience was definitely real   Because I knew more and I was better and not ill.  No one could tell me different because an experience like that creates no doubt.

What do you believe about the reality of your experience at the current time:   Experience was definitely real   There is a knowing, I can't explain.  I asked for more knowing and I got it because I waited for the answer from the one who knows.  This has helped me heal my relationship with god.  I can go beyond the veil. and not die.

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience?   I became a writer.  I wrote a book while this was going on.  It turned out to be in prose.  It is actually very good.  In fact it still teaches me .  I also did automatic writing.  If I needed you know anything, it sometimes came out in printing while I was writing something else.

Did the questions asked and information that you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?   No   Oh no because I want to be with the person I tell this to.  I did the best I can. Please offer any suggestions that you may have to improve this questionnaire.  Are there any other questions that we could ask to help you communicate your experience?  

What could a national organization with an interest in near death experience (NDE) do that would be of interest to you?        I think something can be useful.  I'd like to meet others with these experiences and feel what it was like, so as to remind myself.  Doing a talk would be great, maybe on radio.
