Lorelei B's Experience

Experience description:   

I drove some friends home and asked to use their "potty", as I have a 40 minute or so drive home.   I sat down to talk to them for a few minutes before leaving.   I was aware, after a bit, that their speaking seemed to have somehow sped up...they were talking in fast forward!   I was also aware, at the same time, that they were asking me questions about possible ice on my ride home...then, everything had gone black, I'd "gone into myself" there was absolutely nothing - then the brightest LIGHT pulled me out and I was part of the light - such a feeling of complete Love, Peace and Joy - it was SO WONDERFUL!   I could almost make out a face in the distance and as to what I was experiencing/feeling in the Light, I said/felt/thought "THIS, oh You are Jesus"...there may have been more, but I just can't remember...at that instant, I felt myself being pulled back and I could "see" my friends from above, looking over at me and I heard them asking me again about the ice and then "hey, are you okay"?   I tried to resist, I didn't WANT to go back!   I felt like I'd been zapped by static electricity and came back into myself feeling so HAPPY...I first said, "the roads should be fine", it's been above 30 degrees" and then, "I was GONE from here for a bit...there was an Amazing Light"...I related to them what I've just written.   It's hard to put into words...it's such a simplification for something so very ALL encompassing..."The Great Spirit", now seems to fit.

The enormity of the feeling is hard to express.   The reason I think there may have been more "communication" during my experience, is that I found myself trying to use telekinesis with my friends and actually expecting it to somehow work, in the moments afterward...NOT something I'm prone to do...I sat back and thought, "WHOA, what are you DOING?" to myself.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?     Uncertain            Prescription medication and nothing I hadn't had before.


Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? No      

What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience?           I was aware of what had happened, every step of the way...I'd been talking just moments before and I was talking moments after.

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   No.   I'd had an odd, comforting dream earlier in the week...I've been having rough times - some iridescent green butterfly-life wings enveloped me in the dream and I awoke feeling a bit better about my financial nightmare...I still have financial troubles, but nothing will ever diminish the feelings I carry from the wee hours of yesterday morning - I wasn't afraid to die before due to dreams, premonitions and Prayers almost instantly answered...and seeing who had to be an Angel of some kind - who saved my young son and I from an auto accident in 1986 and then vanished into thin air, on a motorcycle - right along side of us, on a highway in broad daylight, no less.

He pointed so I noticed a large pickup truck on the road dead ahead of me, stopped and waiting to turn left.   Then he just vanished!   This was a one way, 2 lane highway and there was nowhere he could have gone.

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Yes     My Spirit, I suppose, was pulled up and became part of the Light.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            When I was aware of my friends' "fast forward" speaking, I was a bit afraid...then when I was part of the Light, the most total Love, Peace and Joy...think of the HAPPIEST you've ever felt and imagine knowing that feeling would never end.

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           The "fast forward" speaking was VERY "unusual"!

Did you see a light?           Yes     Brightest Light I'd ever seen, sparkling, iridescent, "everything"...unconditional Love, total Peace and utter Joy.

Did you meet or see any other beings?           Yes     It just struck me...He said, "I am the Light and the Way", did He not?

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

I saw my friends looking over at me after asking me about the ice again and asking me if I was okay, "from above", as I was, I guess you could say, taking my time coming back into my shell.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          No      

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?          Yes     I was not "aware" of my body at all...I now realize how much our bodies suck!   I didn't smell, touch or taste anything, hearing and sight seemed to be heightened...everything was Spiritual, emotional.

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?   Yes     Described previously, the "fast forward" speaking, right before "it" happened...it seemed like it took longer but it didn't take long at all.

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?       Yes     Not a "decision", as much as knowing I was being pulled back into it and didn't want to go!

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Yes     I've been a compassionate, empathetic person, but now I know that we are all truly "connected".

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       I am definitely happier and there's no real reason that I should be...my life is a nightmare!

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes     A few...the friends who were there, when I said that I'd "gone from them" and described what had happened, are the ones who told me that I'd had an "Out of Body Experience"...I thought that only happened when a person died!   They said it CAN happen, so I guess I'm proof.

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  Gratitude for having had it, first!   Love, Happiness, Peace, Joy and I hope these feelings, these "emotions" never leave!

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      It was all good and the only "worst" part is that it couldn't have lasted longer so I could have seen my

Dad or brother...I think the fact I could almost make out was most likely one of them.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        No.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         No      

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               Yes     The questions asked all there is to know.

Please offer any suggestions you may have to improve this questionnaire.    No and thank you!!!
