Lena L's Experiences


I actually vividly recall every moment of being brought / delivered into my body into my bassinet by a being of light and love... Also, I've had both spontaneous, as well as fully planned and intentional, and all types of  "unusual" experiences all my life (this life)... Including leaving my body during several surgeries, being "picked up by a UFO" while practicing projection ... hurtled through the tunnel into the light, visited my dead mother at a spiritual "school" on a higher plain, been given a tour above the planet and shown rising pinpoints of light representing souls evolved to a level similar to myself (to show me I was not alone..). lived in haunted house where TV sets and objects moved and apparition appeared, etc... where do I start? I'll stick to my first experience, because the categories would all be checked, since I've had them all...  I'll only address the "From out of Body to Into Body Experience." 

I had been born 3 days prior as an "induced labor," as was the fashion of the day more for the doc's benefit than mom's or baby's.  The memory of the event is also associated with my first recollection of attempting to communicate anything of substance to my parents.  I felt compelled to tell them about it.  I was standing in the hallway, firmly holding on to my Daddy's pants' leg, near his knee, for balance, since I could barely stand.  Mama and Daddy were talking, ignoring me.   I was trying to tell them about the most important thing that had ever happened to me ... coming from the light ... about floating down from the ceiling ... about the person of light and the shimmering atoms of light being replaced with normal light...and (even more I could go into minute detail about...)  I tugged and tugged on Dad's pant leg, babbling in earnest.  Finally, Mama said, "Look Billy!  Lena's trying to tell us something! She's actually trying to tell us something!"  She was so excited.   They grew quiet, and my excitement grew as I realized they were really listening to me.   Then, they chuckled, and Mama said, "Lena, that was just a dream.  People don't float into their beds.  No one was in light.  It was just a dream."  This is also my first feeling of complete rage.  I was so angry.  The only thing I knew for certain was coming from the light and love...  I was about to explode into the most powerful of tantrums, when suddenly, the being of light was all around me - within my soul.  I was once more in the light and love, and the clam, familiar voice said, "Lean, don not keep trying to tell them about it, because they will keep telling them it was only a dream, and one day you will believe them, and then you will forget."  My rage instantly ceased, and peace filled me as I resolved to never forget that I came from the golden-white light, and was brought into my body accompanied by a being of light and love...  I could go into more... If you'd like me to write more about it, let me know.  I can easily write better than this ... wasn't planning on doing this now.
What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience?           fully alive and alert
            Was the experience dream like in any way?   not at all

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Yes     I have experienced that many times, but this instance, I was being placed into my 3 day old body for the first time.  (Mom said I was listless the first 3 days...  she thought it was the drugs from the induced labor...)

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            I was at peace and was within love - I was part of a larger golden-white light-filled universe.  I was like a single cell in the body of a light and love filled god...

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           The atoms of shimmering light were accompanied by a shimmering, light sound.  As I descended from the white expanse of the ceiling into the bedroom, I was puzzled because the light atoms and sound were being replaced with denser matter and silence.  I asked the being of light where I was, and it told me, "This is your parents' room."

LOCATION DESCRIPTION:  Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or amazing creatures?    Yes            My parents' bedroom, and as I descended, I saw through my peripheral vision, the woven white wicker sides of my oval bassinet. 

Later experiences have included such that could be included in most of your categories.

Did you see a light?           Yes     Light was around, beyond and within me.  I was in it and of it.  The being was in and of it...a close, brilliant atoms shimmering all encompassing glowing golden white, vibrating with a gentle hum....

Did you meet or see any other beings?           Yes     I sensed the being and somehow felt as if I also saw him.  I think it was male.  I felt he was bearded and wore a robe of light.  I felt as if his body was secondary to the light atoms of love he and I were part of, almost as if he'd put on a veil of a body later on in the process of delivering me to my body, in order to give form to himself as we descended into the density of matter ... before he placed me with a "jolt" of electrical shock into my tiny, chilly, body. I was confused and not pleased with my new place.  I liked the light and love.  I was about to protest.  Then, suddenly, I saw with my peripheral vision,

waving dangerously close to my right eye, a little pinkish wiggling object.  I didn't even have the ability to turn my head or move my eyes.  Startled and astonished, I asked the being, "What it that!?"  The being said, "That is your hand."  The experience faded, and the next memory I have of my early life I described above - telling my parents...

Did you experiment while out of the body or in another, altered state? Yes    

I'll move on to generalities.  I've had so many.  Do you ever have meetings?  I'd love to discuss this...

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Yes     Many times I predicted the future (tornado, a love leaving, saw exactly what ex-husband was painting (art) in another part of house ...  mother visited me at time of her death (I was in dream state) I should write a book, maybe?

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?          Yes     It varies depending on what "frequency" I'm within...  Sometime when near "earth," I can feel myself passing through objects/structures...  Other times I instantly "go somewhere"...  I have been in a body like this one, and have existed as a 360 degree, pulsing sphere of translucency filled with spinning pulsing smaller different colored orbs.  Saw lots of others like me... I could tell what they were experiencing, within...

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?   Uncertain      sometimes/you name it

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?    Yes            Very often, yes.

We are as single cells in the body of god.

I am here to remember who I am.

I have lived many, many lives.

I can leave my physical body and explore the inner cosmos.

I am not my body.

I have learned to much to share here...

Did you become aware of future events?       Yes     Many times.  100 percent accurate.  I don't have such insight all the time, just when I need it...

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?       Uncertain     

Sometimes, like when I was taken on a wild tour by a mischievous Hindu costumes lady, I was playfully tossed back into my body.  When I was picked up by the astral UFO while practicing going in and out of my body (a couple of people I didn't know who were dreaming had also been picked up, but I knew they'd not remember later). I'd get so excited about the experience I'd accidentally return to my body.  Rats! 

Other times I was brought back, other times I'd choose to come back.  What a great, wild universe, uh?

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?         Yes     Too numerous for now... ghosts, clairvoyance, (knowing what was about to happen, or was happening), Knowing things about people that I'd just met (so I shouldn't know...)  and their special gifts and aspirations, being a catalyst for people to connect with each other to make their dreams and plans manifest...  constantly something...

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Yes     Even though I remember being brought into my body 3 days after my birth, I couldn't really embrace organized religion.  I researched religions at age 14 rather extensively, and decided they were too elementary ... not telling enough truth...  I tried to be an atheist, but always in my mind was "What about coming from the light?  What about the love?"  When I had my BIG OOBE, at age 23, I knew there is indeed a "god."  But that's another story...

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       I don't insist those I love have my beliefs.

I live each day in the moment, and know I have eternity to "get it right..."

I know religion is not capable of containing the wonders of the universe, that are every souls' birthright.  We need no mediator to give us permission to travel the cosmos.

The third time the voice from the light spoke to me, I was 19 years old.  It told me to get out of bed and go find a job. When I said Id get up later, it demanded I get up, apply for a job.  The last thing said was, "Dress nicely." I somehow ended up at the only place I'd ever said I wanted to work (3 years earlier I'd wandered into an art center...and said 'I'd really like to work here someday).  I'd forgotten about the place, applied at another office, not knowing they were remotely connected.  Only "inside's friends" knew jobs were available.  Over 50 applicants were there.  I just thought it was an everyday thing, with the economy, and all... 5 were hired.  I was, and was sent to the art center...  I've been there 30 years.

I encourage people to do what they love, and that the universe will make a way...

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Yes     My life started out "changed" from most peoples.  I tried to forget, I guess, but couldn't.  Things kept happening.  I did not pursue "cosmic consciousness," etc.

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes     Yes, but not with everyone.  I think I have an intuitive knowledge as to who needs to hear it. 

Some people seem to hear about it from me right before they die.  I don't know they will die, necessarily.  I just get a nudge to tell them.  An out of town friend died suddenly, in his sleep, 2 weeks ago.  During his last visit a couple of months ago, my last conversation was that I knew soul is eternal and that he would once more be with his loving wife and daughter, etc.... (They'd died in a tragic accident many years before.) 

I told my mother about my earliest and other experiences.  I told her we don not die... After my mother died, she came to me (appeared at the funeral home), smiling, and said, "You knew all along didn't you?  You knew everything would be fine!"  She was so happy to be free of pain at last.  I think I helped her not be too attached to earth after passing, and not worry about the family she had to leave behind, since we'd see each other soon enough.   

Other things, too

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  Vary depending on the experience.  I've watched from the operating room ceiling, visited people in their "heaven," seen ghosts and poltergeist activity firsthand, soared across the skies, seen demons, laughed in a demon-guardian's" face (it makes them laugh and go away.  They are there to scare travelers away from their birthrights...) been on a UFO, saw a UFO (real one) had columns of light come into and out of the top of my head, heard flutes and bells and buzzing...  awake and while "traveling..."  The emotions were appropriate to the events.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      The best is that I do not fear death.  There is no death. 

My only fear is that I am too lazy, spiritually speaking, and may not get enough good done within the timeframe of this life...  This stuff came so easily to me, like my artistic talents, that I sometimes tend to devalue it... 

The worst is that I don't spend enough energy cultivating my abilities.  And that I haven't shared my experiences enough.  Perhaps I can now?

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        Perhaps later...

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               Yes     Yes, but I have so much to tell.  Sorry if I confused you.
