Ned's Experience

Experience description:   

I left my body, I basically sat up without my body.

I focused on my body, then on the room about me, and ended up in a place full of very happy angelic like beings.

I then realized I needed to come back, so I did, with quite a jolt I must say.

There was a kind of silver chord leading me back but re-entry was not smooth.

At the time of your experience was there an associated life-threatening event?         No      

Was the experience difficult to express in words?   No       But my memory of some of the details is vague.

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?    More consciousness and alertness than normal    The entire time.         I was in a super conscious state and was able examine things in a super conscious way.

Please compare your vision during the experience to your everyday vision that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.    I could see energy, everything was energy, the walls were transparent, and at a fine level everything was vibrating.

Also I was able to witness my physical brain 'dreaming' rather haphazardly without me actually being in there.

So I was in a very heightened state of awareness.

Please compare your hearing during the experience to your everyday hearing that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.    It was quite where I was, the only sound I remember where of the angelic beings, they seemed to be singing but without words.

Did you see or hear any earthly events that were occurring during a time that your consciousness / awareness was apart from your physical / earthly body?    No   I have had other experiences in which I have seen events.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            None really, it caught me by surprise, there was no fear, just a little difficulty snapping back into my body.

The sound of the angelic beings was very wonderful, that happened near the end of the experience.  

Did you pass into or through a tunnel?           Uncertain      There was some sort of energetic chord back to my body.

Did you see an unearthly light? Uncertain     

Did you seem to encounter a mystical being or presence, or hear an unidentifiable voice?            I heard a voice I could not identify    No voice but many beings

Did you encounter or become aware of any deceased (or alive) beings?         Yes    There were many beings all just seemed like white outlines, I couldn't make out details or faces

Did you become aware of past events in your life during your experience?    No       Not in this experience

Did you seem to enter some other, unearthly world?          Some unfamiliar and strange place            I was in my room for a while, then went to some heavenly place, and then back

Did time seem to speed up or slow down?     No      

Did you suddenly seem to understand everything?            No       Not everything but I did have some sort of super awareness

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? No      

Did you come to a border or point of no return?       I came to a definite conscious decision to "return" to life         It was more of a knowing than a decision

I just knew I wasn't finished here, so there was really no choice

Did scenes from the future come to you?       No       But I have seen the future in other experiences
