Mary R's Experience

Experience description:   

It was my 23rd birthday. I lay down, and prayed for direction in life. I did a small meditation, where I said, "I consecrate myself to the path...All I want is to be of service to society." I was wondering about what I should my graduate school work in, such as the World Health Organization. I lay in bed, and my twin brother was on the floor, visiting for the weekend, sleeping in a  sleeping bag. He never noticed what went on. I heard this crystal clinking sound, like someone was lightly hitting crystal glasses. It was so beautiful. Something made me sit up in bed. And then I looked, at out in the corner of the room, the crystalline sound showed itself as a whirling energetic light of blue, that was circling strongly around itself. It then became a HUGE blue flame. I sat up in bed, and it commanded me to listen...It grew bigger in the corner of the room. I felt it's peace. It started to speak to me, but it was beyond language, and was a sort of telepathic thought to me. It said, "You are coming back to your father's house.....everything is okay. I am here for you. I am the Presence..." I can't really explain it in language. It was a kind of peaceful feeling, a lightness, and joy, and also a feeling that this was my last incarnation, and that I had important work to do...But I've...not really done that much extraordinary with my life...I've just been ordinary, and served in a small way, and working on my faults. It never really resulted in anything profound, but it affected my life.
