Mary S's Experience

Experience description:   

I had a dream while I was sleeping in bed and from what I remember of the dream, I thought I was in heaven although there was nothing to suggest that as I was in more of a void but a very bright void with figures of young men with dark hair and beards wearing white flowing robes zooming in towards me from angles from my right and from my left. whilst this was happening I felt the most powerful feeling of love which was so powerful it was unearthly as I have never felt love in such a way before or ever since. This feeling of love was rising and rising until it reached a peak when suddenly I found myself above my sleeping body although I don't remember seeing my body, but I remember seeing the brass knobs on my bedposts, then bang!!! I was back in my body. Since this dream I have been able to talk about it but for years when I tried to explain to anyone, I would become so emotional it was difficult to explain. Luckily I can now tell anyone about my dream I had all these years ago. I just can't explain it but it was an amazing gift and I will be forever thankful
