Michael M's Experience 2856
was in bed half asleep with lights off. The dog was whimpering in the kitchen. I
felt like there was a stranger in the corner of the bedroom. I reached out for
the light switch on the bedside table. When I reached out my hand went
completely through the lamp and the table. I heard what sounded like a gun
shot. At once the force in the corner overwhelmed me and I was riding on a
blue/ green tunnel of electricity. I was in space and it felt like I was moving
at the speed of light. After my ride I was in the dark again but not on earth. I
was in a place of no boundaries and there was an indescribable of infinity. I
felt all that ever was and all that will ever be. I realized that I was not an
individual but part of an collective energy. I had no fear and understood that
time was an earthly illusion. I felt overwhelming love and peace. After my
understanding I felt the stranger was beside me. I then realized I was connected
to this stranger emotionally for whatever reason. Then all of the sudden I was
back in my bed on earth completely awake and aware.
