William's Experiences

Experience description:   

Experience 1.  Laying on my bed as a teenager staring at a spot on the wall. I saw it get further and further away, then felt myself floating.  I heard my mother in the kitchen cooking and wondered what she was doing.  I floated through the wall like in the movie Ghost.  She looked up and then raced into the bedroom and looked up at the ceiling and then down toward me as my spirit floated back into my body.  She said: "don't do that again." 

Experience 2.  I was lying on the floor at my college girlfriend's house in front of the fireplace watching big snowflakes float down outside a picture window.  I thought how nice it would be if she joined me.  I heard a voice say why don't you ask her.  I thought, why don't you.  You are invisible.  I felt like there was a light on in the hallway and talking.  Then, her father came to the living room and I felt a spirit come into my head.  The next day she asked me how I did that.  I said I didn't know, but what did she see.  She said I was a gold light and was beckoning her with my hand and that her family also saw me. 

Experience 3.   I was sitting on my couch in my living room drinking coffee and thinking of what I had to do that day at work.  A white light being appeared in my living room.  I was terrified.  But when it came closer, I felt pure, unconditional love.  Then, it receded into the distance.

My spirit inside my body turned away from it initially.  IE, my eyes looked straight ahead but my mind's eye could see the fabric on the couch.  It asked why I turned away from it. I thought because I was ashamed to be in its presence.  It laughed and thought to me - there is nothing you can ever do on this planet that I will ever stop loving you.  Then, it came closer and about an arm's length away it was pure unconditional love.
