Laura M Experience

Experience description:   


My experience began during a failed nap. I was unable to sleep so I began to meditate.  I felt normal sensations of deep relaxation.  Heaviness, weightlessness and movies on a screen.  I then found my point of view from above a rural area I have seen before.  I was then traveling straight up very quickly into the sky. Not flying, it was linear so more like a rocket.  I realized how high I was and got scared.  I felt my hands on a steering wheel which I perceived as a message that I was in control.  So I decided to let the momentum take me and decided to trust and let go.  I saw the trees get smaller, then I knew I was in space because I saw the earth, then I saw our solar system, the speed increased to a point where there was no speed.  I was in a new place so far away in locale from Earth that none of our published research has disclosed.  I then felt I had arrived at my destination. It was bright, then a loud buzz or high frequency sound and tingling throughout my entire body and then my eyes opened and I was in my bed.  I never felt that I came back, and felt that I brought something back with me from that place.  I wondered if the few physical ailments that I had would be gone.  I went immediately to the bathroom mirror to see if I looked that same.  I really expected to look different. 

This occurred less than 24 hours ago, so I do not know if any of my psychic abilities or healing abilities are enhanced yet.

Thank You,

Laura M. RN, BSN
