Nicolas M's Experience

Experience description:   

My experience happened while I was asleep. I found myself in an absolute darkness, when a light appeared. It looked like the end of a tunnel, and just next to the light there was a being of light. What struck me most was the extraordinary feeling of wellbeing. I had never felt such a state of happiness and fulfilment, whose origin was this light and this being. The being of light extended its arm towards the light, as if he (or she) was inviting me to go towards the light, but I did not go there. I withdrew, until I could not longer see it at all, and found myself back in my house, but outside my body, in a room underneath my bedroom. Then I went back up through the ceiling and returned to my body. When I was back inside my body it felt like being in a vise, my body compressed on every side. Then I woke up with a pain in my chest.

Mon expérience a eu lieu pendant mon sommeil. Je me trouvais dans l'obscurité la plus totale quand une lumière est apparue, elle ressemblait à la sortie d'un tunnel, et juste à côté de la lumière, il y avait un être de lumière. Ce qui m'a le plus marqué, c'est l'extraordinaire sensation de bien être. Jamais je n'avais ressenti un état de bonheur et de plénitude, qui émanait de cette lumière et de cette être. L'être de lumière tendait le bras vers cette lumière, comme si il(ou elle) me proposait de me diriger vers cette lumière, mais je n'y suis pas allé. Je m'en suis éloigné jusqu'à ce que je ne la vois plus du tout et je me suis retrouvé dans ma maison mais hors de mon corps dans une pièce située en dessous de ma chambre. Ensuite je suis remonté en traversant le plafond et en revenant à l'intérieur de mon corps. Quand je suis rentré à l'intérieur de mon corps, j'avais l'impression d'être pris dans un étau, que mon corps était comprimé de toute part. Ensuite je me suis réveillé avec une douleur au niveau de la poitrine.
