Experience description:   

I was having a lucid dream - I am "moving" something like walking beside another person. I am a ball of blazing light, the "person" next to me is also light. I don't see faces, but I know that this is a "being". We are having a conversation but our mouths are not moving (so telepathically communicating).  We are moving down a very dark hall and then come into a large room that is filled with "people" i.e. other balls of light. The balls of light surround me, and I am overwhelmed by the communication, there is much chatter i.e. telepathic greetings, and I can hear everyone. There is a feeling of warmth, happiness and joy and familiarity like I know this group of beings.

We are somehow connected to one another with a deep sense of understanding and knowing, but we are not family members. And I begin to sing. I am singing but my mouth isn't moving and the music is originating from the middle of my upper chest.  The song is loud and clear and it feels like the room is my voice, I feel the music, the other beings, and the light and the feeling intensifies, and it is like we all become this one big light and beautiful sound. As I pull back out of the LCD I feel myself going back into my body but I still hear the music lingering and echoing in my ears. I wake up.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?     No

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

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?          No

What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience?           I am very conscious and can feel the experience as if it were real.

Was the experience dream like in any way?   No and Yes. LCD's that I have experienced are more real, i.e. everything is intensified and feels more real than an every day awake experience.

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Yes

Yes, when I LCD I am very aware that I am not in my "body".

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            Peace, joy, happiness, and great warmth and love from these other beings. Understanding and a sense of reassurance.

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           Yes. Loud singing, loud song, it was like a musical x by 1 million.

Did you see a light?           Yes, I was light, the other beings were light.

Did you meet or see any other beings?           Yes

I was in a large room? A large gathering place. I did not "know" them but there was a connection with all of them. A sense of familiarity and a sense of family and love and acceptance. A sense of oneness with these beings.

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?          Yes

My five sense didn't seem to come into play. I experience a magnified intensity of something, but I am not sure it is my "senses" per say. It is like you are one with what you experience. If you hear, it is as if you are sound, if you see, it is as if you are that color. There is such a deep profound connection and feeling with what you experience, which is different from what you experience in waking life.

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

I was left with the feeling that I am connected to a higher, greater life force. My encounter with these other beings was like going on a spiritual retreat. My faith and beliefs were validated and although my purpose wasn't spelled out for me, the encounter left me with the conviction that I can trust my inner voice and intuition which has been leading me to a healing, helping career with others. The encounter left me feeling very connected to my inner wisdom and knowledge and beliefs as well as connected to a larger life force.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?             No

Did you become aware of future events?       Yes

A week after this dream I had a premonition dream. I wrote the dream down the minute I woke up. 2 days later the event happened, just as I had recorded it in my journal.

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?       Uncertain, I am uncertain, but I knew that I was in my body again, and that I was "back".

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?         Uncertain

I have been had "psychic" abilities since I was a very small child. However, since this last LCD and encounter, my psychic awareness and inner voice has become very "loud".

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Yes

The experience has left me with this voice that wants me to move forward, now, into the area of healing and helping. My inner voice has become very loud and it is hard to ignore what I now feel is a "calling" that I need to answer.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       It has actually had negative impact on some relationships with family members who are very skeptical and think I might be going crazy. I tried talking to someone close about this experience because it left me feeling very mixed up and almost disturbed. This experience almost had me doubting my own sanity. As far as religious practices I have always been a very spiritual person, and have never doubted my faith. Career wise, this has made a huge impact and I am in the process of moving into a healing profession that I have thought about for many, many years.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Yes

Applying for training in the health care field so that I can work with others.

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes

Disbelief, disbelief, disbelief. The standard response is "what did you eat last night?"

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  I had a range of mixed emotions, from a profound sense of love and acceptance and understanding, to feel very confused at what I should do with this experience. i.e. what does this mean? what was the meaning. I also felt that I might be going crazy, and maybe I'm having some sort of delusional episode, or mid life crisis.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      There was no worst part.

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
