Lu M's Experience

Experience description:   

I had gone to bed around 9PM because I wanted to be rested for some class tests I was going to have the following day.  As I lay in bed all of a sudden I began to feel some sensations around my feet.  The vibration began to come up my body.  It startled me and I began to get scared.  I questioned if I was dreaming, but I was aware that I was awake and alert. 

The tingling and vibration kept moving up my body.  When it got to my chest I saw Light, it was very bright but not blinding.  The vibration and Light eventually moved over my head and I was enveloped by it.  I suddenly felt an immense knowing of Love; unconditional love.  I knew without a doubt that this Love had always been there and that I could not do anything to earn it or have it "abandon" me.  It was always there for me no matter what I did in my life or didn't do. It was complete acceptance. There was no such thing as right or wrong or good or bad. I also understood that this is the way it was for everyone!  

I then asked in my mind, so what are all these religions for (since this was a question I had been contemplating for some time)?  I understood that it didn't matter if I chose to be part of a religious organization or not.  These groups and beliefs existed for those that believed they needed it and if one day they didn't feel they needed this affiliation it was okay to move forward. 

After about 2 minutes the Light began to move down my body and it left the way it came in.  I was left deeply comforted (tears of joy and appreciation running down my cheeks) and I was forever changed in my understanding.  A level of fear about living life was removed due to this experience.
