Leesa M's Experience

Experience description:   

As a child I would often "dream" I was dressed in a white robe and I was standing at a podium reading a huge book.  I was learning new facts at a very rapid pace and I could remember them in the morning when I woke up.  But...when I was in the experience, as soon as I realized what was happening and that I was not "where I should be" the words would become blurred and I would re-enter ME.

Second Experience: When I was around 27 I lived in a mobile home.  One night I heard this LOUD roaring sound and it wouldn't stop.  I was paralyzed and couldn't get the attention of the person sleeping next to me.  I looked down to the foot of the bed and there was a black outline/shadow of a tall man standing there. He didn't move.  I was terrified, but it seemed like I just went back to sleep.  Even though we had tiny windows and the door was dead bolted shut, when I woke up the next day ALL the drawers in all the tables, shelves, the refrigerator, the oven, the coffee tables were wide open.  I would assume that the shadow man was trying to communicate something, but I don't know what.

Third Experience:  When I was 42 I came home from work one day and was parked in my driveway.  All of the sudden I was in a different place.  I had on the white robe again, but I was an adult.  The huge book was there on the podium, just like it had been when I was a child.  I had a list of questions and I started asking them.  My first question was, "who will I be with when I'm dead?"  The answer was shocking to me.  The answer was that "we" are one and that all the people I am thinking about are really projections of me and that I will miss no one because I am all.  Also, it showed me that when I "die" the grieving period for my family will be very, very short because time is not what it seems.  To them it will last a long time, but in the grand scheme of things it's no time at all.  I went to ask my next question, when all of the sudden I was FLOODED with knowledge.  I knew EVERYTHING.  Then my vision became 360 degrees and I was glowing w/light.  I was in the middle of a swirling vortex that had colors that I have never seen before.  I felt myself fading into that vortex and there are NO words to describe the feeling.  It was like bliss x 100,000,000.  It was amazing.  Then I was back in my car.  I was so happy and I had absolutely NO fear of death.
