Terms I've elicited
such as "dimensions", being "sucked out" and the images during the experience
not of this universe are only for description, for lack of better/ more defining
After several weeks of very positive thinking (how wonderful/ amazing life is) I
was at a friend's house. While playing religious music and keeping a spiritually
focused mindset, I felt an overwhelming need to sit quietly. Just after sitting,
I closed my eyes and started feeling energy (like the "chills") emanating from
my stomach. It soon began pulsating outward spherically to the edge of my body.
It became so intense that I began losing awareness of my physical senses.
noticing that I'd quit breathing, I gasped and then was "sucked out" and upon
opening my "eyes", was aware that I was floating around the ceiling. As I
observed both my and my friend's bodies, the thought of how simple, yet amazing
this was! Then the energy began to pulsate again. This time, I was "sucked" into
a dimension where thoughts manifest as reality. Colors flow past in streams,
lights appear and flicker, then disappear. To show that I was in a timeless
place a clock with no hands appears and floats past, to show that I had access
to unlimited knowledge, the largest mathematical equation I've ever seen
appeared, hovering in front of me. Then a voice, more like a vibration resonated
through me that told me "you are what you are and it's okay"! So I enquired
"what am I then?" and was "sucked" to another dimension where except for
blackness was a being. It was of height, width and depth beyond what I could
view or comprehend. It was composed totally of light, not really of a
"brightness" perse, but luminous nonetheless. After a moment to become aware of
"it", I was pulled as a magnet draws metal into it. It's essence is of all that
is, love, or of being the source of the energy that binds and animates all. To
call it God I guess would suffice. And then the "chills" energy previously
experienced was of intensity beyond description and all consuming, like peering
into infinity. After what felt as hours or days passed, I was thrust back into
my body. Upon opening my eyes and realizing that only a few minutes had passed,
I was excited about not only the experience, but life. As I left my friend's
house, I noticed plants, animals and people. But noticed as though we were
different shells of the same consciousness. All alive via the same energy.
