Laura's Experience

Experience description:   

            I remember right from the point were I saw the mountains.  There were two of them, incredibly tall and smooth, completely covered with snow.  I looked down and around me and discovered that I was on rolling hills covered with perfect green, green grass. Everything was so bright and so clear.  I looked to the right and saw pine trees, looked down to my left and saw a depression in the land that I now believe is a lake.  I began to hear beautiful clear celestial music that reminds me of Celtic music.  It was the most beautiful thing I had ever heard, and it filled me with peace.  I looked around me and saw people dancing and stretching, moving in fantastic and graceful ways.  I moved closer to join them and saw that they were people I knew, although I cannot today remember who.  They made me feel warm loved and wanted.  i felt complete and sighed and laid down on the perfect grass to feel it, to kind of soak up the pure joy the place seemed to emanate.  I looked beyond the people and saw across a valley near the mountains a place I recognized.  I had been here before. I then became aware of someone next to me.  I sighed and remarked on the beauty, and then said "I know I have to go.  I felt myself retreating and woke up in my bed.  We had been on vacation and this vision I had came to me while I had been dreaming, although I knew I had been there before.  There may have been more of the vision.  I remember telling my mom about it and only thinking to say that it "Felt like heaven".  She shrugged it off and didn't take me seriously.
