Rick L's Experiences
I was waking very slowly, lying in my bed at home, feeling my self drift back into my body awareness, and dreaming of nothing in particular. At first I registered a lot of light, with my eyes closed. So I opened my eyes a slit and thought 'it must be an angel' I was scared and hopeful! The light bathed my room, everything seemed so bright and different, difficult to express or define, I also just felt euphoric. I was in my own bedroom, so I couldn't do more than look about my belongings and see the same items but feel so different, so complete. I quickly but carefully dressed. I was aware I felt very complete and happy, so I was just 'hanging on' to that feeling or mood.
The next thing I recall is walking down from my home, to the town centre. A walk of a mile or so. I wanted to find out what the outside world looked like, and experience it whilst I felt so totally happy, peaceful and euphoric. I was consciously trying to stay at this emotional 'high' being very careful to move and think slowly so as to try and perpetuate this wonderful sense of peace and oneness> I just felt terrific, it is difficult to describe exactly the emotional rightness of this day.
As I walked down into town I looked ahead, and found I could see a very long distance, and in much greater detail than I had ever been able to before. All the things I looked at had a rainbow of extra colours, well not exactly, they seemed to radiate these extra colours and so seemed brighter and more meaningful. I tested my sight as I realized things were different. I looked ahead at some bricks on a wall of a house some 800 yards away (end of the street. I could consciously describe the broken edges and cracks of a set of bricks. At that moment I knew my vision was beyond normal, possibly beyond that of an eagles. It was impossible. Yet as I walked towards the bricks I was right about every detail.
This feeling faded after walking about for about two hours or perhaps three.
I had a conscious dream, very detailed and so exact it had colour, items placed, I walked a journey, and I felt emotions as I did so. On waking I could recall every detail, and knew it was special event/dream.
At the very end of the dream, as I knew the dream was coming to an end and I was becoming more awake I saw a field, walked through into the field to look at a great view and thought I 'd like total a trip on a UFO. I watched as one landed in the field then heard a voice say 'not this time' with a smile, and seemed to feel a finger being held up, waving infant of me, as one would with a slightly naughty child. Then I woke quickly with full recall of the dream.
Three years later as I went through two swing doors in my university, a spot on the campus I had never been to before, and I 'entered' my dream. It was like a complete half hour of perfect match to the dream. Even the small details. Was blown away. How could I possibly see into a future, any future?
Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? No
Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Yes During first event colours were beyond our vocabulary to define as the experience was beyond the ability of our bodies to sense or imagine.
The second event felt just like an impossibly detailed dream, as if I had lived the event.
At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event? No
What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience? Full and increased.
Was the experience dream like in any way? The first started at wake up, but a lot of my younger years I was in a dream like sort of consciousness all day!
The second was a dream that was then experienced in full normal awareness - believe me I was awake once I recognized where I was!
Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? No
What emotions did you feel during the experience? In the first experience I was elated, euphoric and just fascinated with my abilities and wonderful emotive state
In the second experience I was awake but dreaming, it felt strange to be so awake and I knew as I was dreaming that this was unusual.It just felt fun.
Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? No unusual noises, just the visual experiences dominated my focus
Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or amazing creatures? No I was in normal England
Did you see a light? Uncertain At the start of experience 1 I am sure it started with a bright light that I could sense was bathing my room even with my eyes closed.
Did you meet or see any other beings? No 1st experience, I experimented for a few hours with emotional feel and visual and consciousness level.
2nd experience I was only aware of its full relevence three years on, and during the time it took me to wander the whole route I had taken in my dream I was testing the dreams accuracy - it was 100% in great detail (even sheep on a hill and a big red double decker bus in the right location). Unfortunately although the field and the view at the end of the walk were there - exactly as the dream portrayed - there was no UFO ;(
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? Yes 2nd experience This was a three year fully precognitive event. I walked the whole route as in the dream, took me over an hour to do this and everything was correct.
To me it was a wake up call, a message: I felt someone had shown me I was doing the right thing, that I was on the right path in life, that science was good but incomplete in its understanding, that I needed just to trust my life.
Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different? Yes All my senses were working in both events. memory of sight was the primary and so was emotion. Consciousness was present in heightened form in both.
Did you have any sense of altered space or time? Uncertain In my dream on the second event it is clear to me the dream was not ordinary because it was so precise, detailed and followed a sensible walk or passage, so this was unusual for a dream.
Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? Yes Afterwards in both experiences I felt as if I had been given a gift, and treasured and thought a lot about these events.
Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? Yes The UFO was out of bounds, in a friendly way! Not exactly, but I suspected the 2nd event was a premonition, but had no real idea of it carrying a message except once the 'real' event occurred then both dream and event became a message of direction and a short but full message about reality.
Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body? No
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience? Uncertain I have always felt very certain there was order and love in our universe, and that there was no death, just life after life. I sometimes feel I am allowed to be psychic on specific occasions, but most of the time I'm just a simple normal person with very strong feelings of right and wrong.
Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience? Yes My spiritual beliefs were strengthened. I found many reasons to question the negative messages in christianity but embrace still the positive and inclusive ones. All religions are one to me. Religion is a business for some people and a social event for others and a wonderful acceptance of God to others, I enjoy it that people are looking in the right direction but feel sad that they fail to look further as its rules are crude versions of the beauty of the truth.
How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices? In so many ways, I feel as if I have been just gently nudged onto a better path, and given a strength I did not think I had. I am certain I no longer fear death but I am just the same muddle headed human with cotton wool for a brain!
It has altered the way I approached my Chiropractic practice, my patients. I just wish to give. I never advertised, except to give a truthful story or report, and never ran a regular 'see you next month' practice. I relied entirely on patients that needed my care and treated them with great care and truthfulness. In return I seemed to become more intuitive and loved my practice, I miss it dreadfully. I now wait for my next task.
Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? Yes I am more careful with others, more empathetic, and I love the life I live as much as I can. I head towards positivity as against drift towards negativity.
Have you shared this experience with others? Yes It is fun to share, if people are receptive. I get many of their experiences in return. Many patients have amazing things to say. Many have had no such experience, and it means less to them, so every time I can I mention my experiences, it seems to help people as I have a profession and a lifestyle they can trust.
What was the best and worst part of your experience? In both cases that they are such isolated incidents it seems sad. I feel slightly abandoned but also know our lives feel like a journey, so perhaps things are just meant to be this way.
Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience? I have had other experiences, one that saved my life. It seems like living a normal life is a deliberately handicapped event.
Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience? Uncertain As above, I have had other events.Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience? Yes In this case yes, though my event was a long time ago, I still remember such wonderful moments with ease.
