Experience description:   

I went to bed by myself around 10 PM. I turned off the light, got into bed on my back, and closed my eyes.  The curtains are thick, like in a motel room, and to the left of my bed. The window is on the right side of its wall and corners the wall that my bed faces (other wall). Light from a street light shines perfectly through the right side (corner) of the window and shines on the far wall. After my eyes dilate from the dark I can look around and see most objects in the room, although dim.

After about ten minutes laying there with my eyes closed, I began experiencing a bright, beautiful greenish/blue light. Almost like a dimmer, it took about ten seconds to start from dark to a super bright light, although it didn't hurt my eyes. My eyes are still closed!  I then felt a presence in the light, a very loving energy. I remained calm. I didn't move, yet in hindsight, I don't think I even tried to move. I didn't want to scare the wonderful experience away.

Visually, it was like I was surrounded by fog (nothing was distinguishable). The light came from all directions.  I experienced this for a couple minutes, and then decided to open my eyes. When I opened my eyes, to my surprise, it wasn't different. The light was the same, the feelings the same, no change. Like when you're in a pitch black room where your vision is the same with your eyes open or shut -- Black. Only I was a experiencing a very bright wonderful light.

Another couple minutes passed. I willingly waited for whatever was next, and almost as fast as the light appeared -- it disappeared. I could then see my room. No more light, but there where still an essence of the loving energy,  but it too were fading.  I remained awake for at least a couple hours after the experience. I even tried laying on my back again to see if it would come back, but it didn't.

I just started to lightly smoke pot, but wasn't high that evening. Don't drink.
