Experience description:   

11.22.11                       My Christmas Surprise 

Christmas Eve 2007 and I'm at home heating a small pot of miso soup and holding in mind the question "who am I?"  Three or four times I'd mentally repeated my question when a friendly male voice replied "You've been a Buddhist monk for 10,000 years." This voice in my head, these clairaudient words were very real and not something that I was used to hearing but very close up in my head. I've grown to accept psychic things as possible, credible and real (whatever that may mean). At that time four years ago I was more questioning and skeptical of psychic stuff. Anyway, I replied "that's older than Buddha, and he replied "You are Buddha" to which I replied "what about Jesus" and his reply was "that's another tribe".  So clever me, I asked "what about the TGA" (I was diagnosed with Transient Global Amnesia in 1999 after my first heart surgery), and then there was a sound or two like switching, and a movie started in my head that showed episodes from past lifetimes, mostly of me walking along trails in the mountains which I seemed to recognize and said so aloud several times while the movie went on and on, life after life, and all me it seemed in lifetimes as a Buddhist monk in the Himalayas.             

I had turned off the gas and stepped back from the stove, the miso soup was steaming hot, and I didn't want to disturb what was going on in my head, or I would have walked a few feet to sit in a chair because my legs were getting tired.  After maybe a hundred or so life episodes, a fixed scene reminding me of a  Picasso cartoon like drawing of I didn't know what, and said aloud "what's this" and he replied "Oh, you came from another galaxy" and then the scene in my head changed to an image of a red binary star, then a view of a planet, first an image of it  with the red binary sun in the background, and then a closer view like from a few hundred miles above this planet's surface, notable features were few, little variation in elevation with lakes large and small scattered about.  And I said aloud "what's this?" and his reply was "you are going to another galaxy"!!!  And then I said "there's 105 billion people and the brutes are in charge." And at this time what felt like a download started in my brain with an activity I felt above my right ear.  This activity continued for maybe ten minutes after the movie in my head stopped and now it feels like I have an encyclopedia of knowledge about this planet.   

The last scene in this movie in my head was indoors, a large factory building with lots of piping running about.  There wasn't any visible activity or people to be seen.  And when I said "what's next?" this paranormal episode ended.   

            Lots of dialog I've forgotten but I recall that his words were spoken -sounds in my head and later silent telepathy, as in thoughts in my head.  I recall shaking my head indicating that I was disconcerted by my feeling that I couldn't tell his thoughts from my own.  By the end of this episode it was all telepathy and I felt easy about it.     

After several months of mulling over this experience with the information

I'd heard that "the brutes are in charge" and "105 billion people", I decided if I saw my guardian angel again I'd say to him "hell no, I wont go", but when I did see him in a dream there was such an awesome feeling of power and a bluish white light radiating from this statuary like image and with a very sour looking downturned mouth and I said "OK, I'll go." 

A related sequel that happened during heart surgery on 27 December 2010.  It seems to me that I was watching a troupe of angel children, all very colorfully dressed and singing or chanting.  My perspective was from across the surgery with the operating table in front of me... 

            Several years have passed since I was given information that I accept as a possible future reality that makes me feel assured rather than concerned about what's coming next.  

Addenda 10.26.12

            During the past month or so, Karen read to me The Eternal Validity of the Soul, a "Seth book" which described out of body or OBE trips and various aspects of OBE trips.  Back in 2008 when my dreamed I was on Big Red as I call it, I did indeed see people, about a dozen bodies, lots of skin and all a light brown color as best I could tell in the dim lighting as I saw it in this room with racks of pallets about five high for sleeping  on I believe.  Maybe a dormitory room at bedtime is what I think I saw.   

            Its more interesting to me how biased my mind is and how Seth's description of OBE and his inclusion of different forms of OBE, which included travel out of the solar system, made my dream seem more credible as an OBE experience.  The whole subject of dreams has taken on a more real aspect...
