Rae's Experience

Experience description:   

Prior to my experience of three years ago, I had an out of body experience over twelve years ago while I took a nap in the afternoon.  When I fell asleep, I immediately "woke" while I was still sleeping. It confused me because I had never had this experience before where I was aware I was sleeping but also awake. As I was looking around the room, I noticed everything as it was in my waking state, and I was amazed at the clarity I was experiencing. I then decided to "walk" into the living room. When I entered the room, I was compelled to look out the third story window. When I looked out, I saw a being of light in the neighbors yard. She was very beautiful with a white robe-like dress and long hair. She was standing next to six people who were painting and using easels which were in two rows of three. She quickly knew I was looking and turned to me with a smile and in a quick flash, she was with me, standing in the living room taking hold of my hand. I was shocked! She looked like a person, but she was made of this beautiful golden light. I remember trying to make sense of how this could be. She was very loving and warm and communicated with me telepathically which didn't seem strange at the time but was very comfortable. She told me it was okay to live where I was living, and then she hinted of some things to come and then said she had to go, and the moment she disappeared, I awoke in my bed and thought whoa, strange dream!

Though after several years, the things she told me were going to happen in my life came true, and after that I realized that experience was no dream! 

    The experience I had three years ago happened while I was taking a bath. I have always believed in God, but I have never liked organized religion. I didn't go to church, and I was very self-centered, or at least it seems I was compared to how I feel towards other today. While I was in the bath relaxing, I had a very deep feeling of  feeling bad for my past behavior in my life. This feeling was unusual for me, but it was intense, and at the moment I told God that I didn't want to fight with him/her/it anymore. Then

I went on with my bath, thought nothing more about it, and continued for the next week doing what I do without putting another thought towards it. After a week, I had an experience in a restaurant where I felt this amazing sudden feeling of love pour through the top of my head into my heart and entire body.  It is hard to describe because I have never felt this before. It was very intense, as if I were a fire of love. I can't really explain it, but it came and went, and I became scared because I didn't know what had just happened to me.  I went home and waited for my husband to tell him of my experience, and we both had no idea what it was, but it seemed everything was "back to normal", so I just put the experience aside.  A few days or weeks, unfortunately, I cannot remember the length of time between these events. I had another very realistic dream at night. I had a dream where this bright globe of light came into my bedroom and was speaking with me telepathically. It seemed I spoke with this light all night, and when I woke in the morning I thought it was strange, but then a strong feeling came over me, and I immediately knew I spoke with the light of God and became very scared. I tried to recall what we were speaking about, but I knew intuitively I was made to forget it. 

Several weeks after this experience, in May, I started feeling this love in my heart. Similar to the initial experience in the restaurant.  At times this love became so strong, I would have to stop my job and go into the bathroom until it passed. It was an absolutely amazing feeling. Through this constant barrage of intense love, I became aware little by little of how beautiful all people are and that everyone is made of this love. Even now I still feel this love in my heart. It doesn't seem as intense as it use to, but sometimes it becomes very warm, fuzzy feeling that lights up my inside. I know this love is from God, and I know everyone is made from this love and is this love. The sad part of knowing this is others do not believe me and do not even know that they are love. This sometimes makes me extremely sad.  I use to speak of my experiences more when this was first happening because I thought maybe there are other people who feel this amazing love in their heart, but people do not want to believe it.  I know it is true because it is in me. I also know that we need to love ourselves and others more than we do now. It is the most important action we can do in our lives. To truly love and accept.   

Over the past year, I have stopped telling people I can feel this love.  It is too strange for some people to hear, and they just think I am a kook, but I know it is real because it is physical and tangible. It is amazing to know we are love!
