Maurice F's Experience

Experience description:   

At the time in my life, my future was uncertain. No job.  I was being allowed to stay at this new age crystal/tarot/incense kinda shop, in the back. The shop wasn't open on Saturday so I had the place to myself. They had a room there they called the meditation room.  It was totally blacked out with curtains over the door and nothing in the room but a comfy chair and a standing mirror in front of it. Kinda like a meditative thing I guess. If no light, do you still cast a reflection.  Anyways, it was nice and quiet.  I usually said my Saturday prayers there, like you know, forgiveness for the week before..etc..It was morning, early..first cup of coffee thing. I'm saying my prayers when suddenly, I'm lifted out of my body.  It took a week after the events I'm about to describe to remember. It was like I remembered little bits and then about a week later..it was like a door opened in my memory and I remembered everything..vividly..chillingly..wonderfully. ok so here goes. I haven't told many of this and never in this way..written..so bear with me.

   So, I'm out of my body and have become like this ball of energy..or light..something anyways..I go up through the roof and way up in the sky over Casper at an incredible rate of speed. I'm trying to take all this in. I can see like 360%..above, below..in front..behind..all at once..i realize I'm being led by these 2 other balls of energy as we go higher and higher, quickly entering space. we kinda speak. telepathically?? I dunno..I am told I am being shown this so I will know that there is more after life on earth..as we start to really accelerate..past the moon and planets. I hear this sound..quite beautiful unlike any other sound I have ever heard, I ask about it and am told that every spirit in the universe has its own sound that resonates throughout the universe and can be located in that way. we started to come to what I believe was the edge of our solar system and started slowing down fast. I knew/felt that I was coming back and didn't want to. I told them as much but they insisted I had to come back. I had more to do yet. I was in the middle of saying no when I was like slammed back into my body. I felt real weird but really couldn't remember anything right then, just felt like something weird had happened..the weird feeling persisted, and like I say, like a week later it was like the floodgates opened.
