Stephen CLS' Experience

Experience description:   

It all started out as a slow to moderate to and fro motion through the entire length of a very long "sparked" tunnel.  Acceleration tempo increased rapidly every "round trip" until it maxed out into an incredible vibrational speed.  Then BINGO!----------I passed through an invisible barrier best described as a shimmer or a wave into infinite night.  It was blacker than black and endless.  I thought I was dead. 

Within moments a single tiny tiny tiny pinpoint of light emerged in the center of the void and proceeded to explode clockwise in three complete sections-----------bottom left third first, top third second, and lastly bottom right third.  The explosion was accomplished in a nanosecond and before I knew it I was standing before a wall of unimaginable pure white light.  At the center of my vision I soon observed writings in "black fire" moving top to bottom and left to right in three rows.  These were numerical; eleven numbers per row expanding progressively by intervals no larger than 80 and no smaller than 4.  Most intervals averaged 30 to maybe 40 apart. 

I somehow instinctively understood it to be an numerical record involving the sequential longevities of my previous 33 existences in an understandable form to me.  A moment later a single number appeared at the bottom creating a single number only fourth row.  It was not scribed out as the above rows but instead appeared in a single flash.  It was in the color green and very prominent------------and also my present age at the time (22).  Next in sequence and exact replica of my face form is being sculpted before me in black outline top to bottom and situated above the four numerical rows.  The numbers now start slowly moving toward me growing ever larger and larger until I am totally engulfed as I pass through them.  Next my face form starts slowly moving toward me and ever growing larger and larger until it occupies the entire spectrum. 

I stood there dumbfounded at the size and majesty of my own FACE!  I slowly passed into and beyond my face form and merged blissfully into the white light.  At some point therein the light became almost fluid as it seemed to display a subtle ebb and flow.  This is when I became united with it in every sense of the word and came to the stunning conclusion that this is the real me-----------LIQUID LIGHT!  I "bathed" in it for a while and then was shot back through the tunnel only to return to "normality".  The entire experience lasted no more than a couple of minutes at most.  It left me semi-dysfunctional for several days and was even fired from my job.  Oh well--------the hell with the job 'cause this one was really worth it.                                    END

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        Prior to this experience there were a couple of hours of dreams in which preparatory lessons were given to me by a guiding voice or voices.  These differed from normal or even deep dreams in that you could physically feel the images used being selected from your brain and then taken below for the "lesson".  The funny thing is that you could sense 6 or 7 levels of memories that images were extracted from before taken "below" for the lessons.  I know that this is impossible to explain (and I've read the complete works of Jung before this!).  Hundreds of lessons were given, but the last lesson was the lesson of forgiveness.  At that point I was catapulted into the tunnel (see #3 above).

Did the questions asked and information you provided so far accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?         Yes
