I am not a religious
person, although I was raised to believe in the Christian God. A friend and I
had been researching crop circles in conjunction with the idea of reincarnation,
energy, and the view of time in a round sense (not linear) for several hours.
We were completely sober I feel I should add, and our findings mimicked what we
had purported to be the reality of our existence long before discovering the
proof of realms beyond our own. Based on events in my own life, I had
conjectured that it felt to me like my life was following a plan, and the way
that I think (very openly) is in no way indicative of my sheltered (read:
religious) past. I believed that all life and matter that we can see as well as
what we cannot is somehow energy, and our 'minds/souls' are the true basis of
As we lay in the dim
lighting discussing our individual conclusions several minutes later, we both
felt a strong connection to something beyond our limited comprehension of the
world around us. The emotion that I experienced was similar to the one that
deeply religious individuals say they feel when they connect to God. I was
thrilled to my core, and lay there staring at the wall thinking that if all
matter/life is merely energy, and there are far more dimensions that we can
perceive, is it so far fetched that I should be able to tap into these? And as
I thought about astral projection and the "far out" things that I have heard
about over the years, I felt an incredible lightness blanket me warmly. From
the middle of my waistline and centered just above my navel, I felt a pull
towards the focus of my upward gaze. It wasn't a hard pull, but a gentle tug
that suggested that I was going to be lifted. The location of the tug was not
any harder or softer than anywhere else on my body, but it was somehow firmer in
a sense. My eyes remained open the entire time, and upon the second pull I
slowly drifted upwards and away from my physical body and into a comfortably
Suddenly, I felt that I
had gained all knowledge from all of time, but without specification; in that I
was so overwhelmed with the information available to me and so exhilarated by
the experience that I was entirely unable to think of just one thing that I
could focus on, although my focus was stronger than it had ever been or has been
since. I felt in tune with, and aligned with the 'universe' in a way that was
indescribably strong. I felt the energy of every molecule of every living
thing, and we together were God. My partner, who lay beside me, moved suddenly
and I was whipped back into my physical body. Although my physical eyes
remained open, I was able to look around the vast emptiness which encompassed me
through another type of vision, but I don't recall actually seeing anything
besides the void. Everything that I was able to experience was sensed, and not
tangible in the physical sense yet seemed more attainable and tangible than
anything I've felt on Earth.
did not experience a feeling of re-entry, but a feeling of stronger
vulnerability. Once it had happened the first time, I found that it was far
easier to drift in and out as I let myself relax enough to allow it to happen.
My partner experienced the same thing, and we consistently conversed with each
other throughout the experience therefore I know with no uncertainty that it was
not a dream.

Yes I felt like I was able to grasp any concept of life that I wished, but
