Experience description:   

It was 9:30 p.m. Monday evening the 13th of May 2002. I had just nodded my head off to sleep. It was the sort of feeling that you would have if you were sitting down and fell asleep and you nod of so fast that when you raise your head it wakes you up. Only when I dozed off I instantly shifted to my window in the very next room to find a little boy wearing blue denim overalls with a blue t-shirt and luminescent white light surrounding him. He was walking towards the window and his profile was all I could see.

As I realized that I was at my window and could not only see but feel my body in the next room I realized this was not normal. I could not control it and that frightened me because I had no idea what was happening until all of a sudden I was given pure knowledge about the world around us, and telepathy took over my whole sense of being. This little boy did not look at me but his head was held down low as if he was going to deliver some very important and alarming news surrounding my life and those I love.

When I realized this boy could be of the spirit world I was so overwhelmed with complete shock and fascination that I believe it caused me to re-enter my body. Instantly after this revelation I re-entered through my head and I was back in my body.( This was the feeling of my head instantly being raised as described before). I had been changed forever and instantly picked up phone to tell someone, anyone all about it.

Only there was nobody there at the time. I needed to get it all out and I was so overwhelmed with complete Joy and graciousness that I had experienced something so rare and out of this world.

I believe I was to be notified of an event to come and that this being was to explain the event to me. It was as though this little boy had been at my side forever and knew all about me. Life's questions and mysteries were encumbered all around me like a light of Love and I felt a sense of purpose I had never understood about me before. It was as though as soon as I experienced this, it was all figured out. All the times I had felt alone I had the profound understanding that even in my darkest times, this being and others were around me since my birth.

I am forever grateful for this knowledge and as much as it scared me I now understand that we are not our body's we only occupy them to have the human experience, but our spirits are of everything, feel everything and are everything. When I was at the window over this being it was like all my energies and thoughts were there to. It was as though my thoughts and feelings were the very makeup of my soul itself. There is no other way to truly describe it unless you have been the one experiencing it. My life will never be the same again and I have no fear that when we die, our spirit will forever continue to live on.

Thank you for listening to my story. If I have not made it clear any questions would be welcome.
