Extremely Bright Light

 

I am now over 50 years old but when I was 16 years old I saw a very bright light after being sound asleep in my bed at home in my room. I would like to preface my bright light story to say that I had always been a spiritual person since age 9 years old when I asked Jesus to come into my heart and save me from sin. Even though I was only 9 it was a very profound experience.

I loved going to church and worshipping God wherever I was. God was not usually far from my mind. I had a bad childhood, divorce, father remarried, mother sought refuge in the local tavern with whomever. Anyway, I felt God and I were very close and these things brought us closer.

I remember feeling discouraged the evening of the event and had asked God to show himself so I would know he was with me. I had prayed this prayer many times before and never expected anything like what happened to happen to me. I went to bed that evening and after being sound asleep I woke up. I didn't hear anything it was perfectly quiet. I always kept a light on in the closet but there was something so bright behind me. I remember I was lying on my stomach and I turned to look my head to the right to look over my right shoulder into the left had ceiling corner of the room I saw a bright, pure, white, clean and transcending light. I tried to look at it to see a shape. I asked myself, is it an angel, or Jesus? The light was so bright I could not look directly at it, I had to turn away, I felt it would have hurt my eyes. So I closed my eyes and went back to sleep.

For a couple of weeks I kept this as a secret to myself. I did not know what people would think if I told them. It really was not much of an occurrence outside of what it meant to me specifically. I am not sure it was God, but I feel it definitely was something of God. It really reminded me of the time Moses was on the mountain and God let him see his back because he said no one would be able to look on his face.

Anytime I begin to doubt if there is a God or if there is one that he does not love or care about me, I think of that time in my life and it warms my soul.

Thank you for reading my story. I hope somehow you might find it enlightening to you.

Aside from I was visited by God in Dreams, I also experience same thing of your Bright light experience. I can't remember the year anymore but as far as I remember, I think it was between year 2011-2013. By that year I can say that was the worst part of my Life. Like You i'm also like a God's child that at young age I love going to any religious gatherings whenever it is Born Again or a Catholic. I also had a bad childhood experience like I've been molested, rejected and humiliated by my own love ones etc. But after all, i've been more closest to God. In present My Family Life now is Struggling but My Faith in God was really there, He always help me realize the importance and Meaning of Life. I feel and appreciate his Greatest Love on Us. Like you, that bright light experience was behind my mind for years but now after i've red this story of your's I was brightened up, and Feel blessed because I think i'm a special God's Child. 😍😍😍

I'm 16 now and I've seen the bright white light in my room when I was little. My older brother was at his friends house and my little brother was sleeping next to me. I woke up in the middle of the night and there was that big thick bright light in front of the bed. I also felt really hot but it could've been the covers I don't know. I remember pinching my little bro to wake up but he didn't (cause he's a heavy sleeper). The light freaked me tf out so I just put the covers over my head and tried to go to sleep. It was hella bright. That's only one of my many experiences.:) spirits, ghosts, souls whatever you want to call them are very real.

Most of the time when I remember my dreams, they are always nightmares and I wake up screaming, sweating and afraid. But today, it was different. I was neither afraid nor was I with joy. So here goes my dream.
I was praying for protection, praying that the Lord send his healing powers to purify and cleanse us with the blood of Jesus. I added that The Lord to send me a sign, since so much is going of late. Then all of a sudden, I feel chills all over my body and my eyes become wide open without a blink, and a bright white sparkling light with étincelles fill my eyes for a while, I can't tell how long I stared at the light. Then, it quickly dissappears and I see a dark room and an old woman walks in, she cleans the table, puts a nap on it, lies on the table and covers herself up. Then my younger child appears from nowhere, takes a spray, and sprays on the woman lying down, she starts shaking, then I suddenly wake up. I ask God what it means, I go to the toilet then come back and I'm so not sure wether to go back to sleep.

Hey Mary

Dont Google it

Draw a picture of the pinwheel galaxy.

And on a different bit of paper just not thinking, like automatic drawing, draw three things on instinct

See if this helps you figure out which pinwheel galaxy you're talking about

I had lots of chills last night and just felt bad. I asked my husband to lay next to me because somehow I was afraid - don't know why just feeling ill/feverish. I closed my eyes and probably went to sleep... Next thing I know I am floating upwards lying down. I am in the sky floating - I sit up and I am in what I will call a pin wheel galaxy where all I see is shining lights - I am in awe thinking is this real? Its the most vivid dream. Then to the left a very very bright light is shining getting bigger - I tried to look but its so bright that I have to turn away. I am suddenly floating again downwards. I wake up covering my left eye, I yell out to my husband - Please turn off the light! Or whatever you have on... It so bright. I become very quiet after realizing there is no light on in my bedroom. I have been going through a difficult time lately and have been praying more. I would like to think it was a message from God. "See...I made this universe, trust that I will help you"

Around 4 months ago I awoke to a insense amber colored light shining into my right eye. I reacted to it by making a high pitched grunt. Then the light clicked off. This was not a dream it was a real experience. I went to my eye doctor justing saying I saw a bright light in the eye. He did a thorough exam and said I was ok. I felt he was concerned about something because he looked at my right eye a real long time. I don't know what to think about life now that this has happened to me.

I had the strangest experience this morning around 3:30am. I was laying in my bed, I was wide awake when I saw a very bright light start flashing down the passage by the front door, initial I thought it was lightning, but the light became brighter, made it's way up the passage and then to the bottom of my bed again the closet. I was circular but flickering (if that makes sense) I thought it was maybe the neighborhood security patrol so I went to the bathroom window, looked out side but never saw any patrol vehicles at all, and given the position on the bathroom window, there was no ways that the light from a patrol vehicle could have shone through so brightly and so circular. My father passed away on the 19th December 2019. I did pray to God to give me a sign that all way well with my dad.

Wow. Some of these ring very true to my experiences. I'd share with rochelle if it's not so late... That a good manual on curses deliverance and others diy style are found on amazon by gene b. Moody... My spiritual father...they're on youtube recorded as well... A work in progress.
But my experiences are truly of god and can be even attacks of the enemy satan. But most of my experiences of seeing light are of angels dashing across my back yard and such. I constantly pray for the host of heaven army angels to protect my neighborhood, home, city, state, and usa... Of course the world as a whole...i've even prayed for demonic poltergeist to leave my home and saw a few leave from my refrigerator and garage and bedrooms etc...amazing...it's creepy a little but since i've been in ministry with some deliverance ministers and other apostolic folks this is normal activity. I even get dreams that come to pass...so, yes, this and other experiences are to let us know that there is an unseen world/dimension. Not to fear and we need to learn as much as possible about it because god gave his chldren; christian dominion over these and the world. So we need to learn how to deal with this unseen world. Thanks for the sharing from everyone... Oh his website; genemoody.com free pdf's of the manuals diy... I'm 60 years old and this is not shouting... So take the words accordingly I need to see what i'm typing xoxox

Two weeks ago having a lucid dream of my wife and the cat being in the bed when they were not there. I was so deep asleep and felt I had to wake up to see if my wife was really in the bed. Finally I forced my self up and flung myself around to see if she was in the bed with me. Instead of seeing her I saw a very bright light in the dresser mirror. The light was very bright and was lighting up the ceiling fan. No light was on in the room. It lasted for what seemed about 10 seconds. It went away when I kept looking away from it to the other side of the room. The room went to dark and I went back to sleep

I was about 50 years old. I was standing in my dining room looking out my large window onto my backyard. I was talking on the phone to a priest who is saying a prayer for my family and all my ancestors back in time. We had wanted to do this in person but could never seem to get our schedules straight. When he finished the prayer and said goodbye I was suddenly engulfed in bright light. I could no longer see out the window and when I looked around everything looked like a bright white fog. It stopped suddenly and I was very emotional, good tears, no fear. It was beautiful. I walked into my living room, Got down on my knees and thanked the Lord for his blessings. I KNEW it was from the Lord. I will never forget it.

I grew up in a secular family, didn't know much about Christianity or other world religions and I labeled myself as an agnostic. But in 2016, at the age of 28, I was on a path of seeking God. I was seeking Him earnestly, trying to figure out Christianity. However the christian concept clashed with my world view and my rational mind. I was at a point of desperation, I truly wanted to believe, but I couldn't come to faith because I was trying to reason my way to faith, as if the truth was through a mathematical equation. That's when I received a dream from God, and let me tell you I've never had a dream of this sort, so real and strong.

In the dream I'm walking on a path through the desert. Around me are only sand dunes, no vegetation and no water. Beside me, to my left, is a male presence who walks quietly. I never turn to see his face, but I know it's a man, and all though we've never met before I feel very comfortable and at ease in his presence. As I'm walking on my path I'm talking out loud, reminding myself that I need to ask my mother for her opinion in one matter, my brother for guidance in another and my friend's view on a third matter. Just as I'm about to remind myself of something else, this presence, who had been listening silently and patiently up until now, finally loses his patience. All of a sudden, he turns into an enormous figure of authority. He stops me in the midst of my sentence and says in a loud and determined voice "Don't ask your mother. Don't ask your brother. Don't ask your friend." I feel so inferior and childlike. But then he ads "Ask God. Ask God. Ask God." As he repeats "Ask God", three times, my eyes are drawn to the horizon where there is an immense bright light. The light grows bigger and draws closer until I'm embraced by the light. The initial feeling of submissiveness is taken over by the light, and I go from a state of subordinate fear to being overwhelmed with a transformative flood of divine love, joy and peace. This flood of love is tangible and physical. I'm dwelling in the purest form of love and in a second the light takes over everything and I wake up. As I wake up I'm absolutely overflowing with love, joy and peace. It is unlike anything I had ever experienced in my entire life. I immediately knew that I had been touched by God's grace, no doubts about it whatsoever. God's love had opened my eyes and transformed me forever and his peace had settled my troubled mind, I wasn't desperately searching for the truth anymore, I had found it. I went from being an agnostic to a believer in Jesus Christ in that same instant. Up until today this remains the most beautiful moment of my entire life.

The thing is that at the point I had this dream I didn't have a lot of theological knowledge. For example I had NO idea that in scripture God is depicted as a radiating light of love. I didn't know that the desert had been important to Moses and Jesus, that they had withdrawn to the desert to communicate with God. I had no clue that scripture commands us to 'Ask God', or that three (the number of times the command 'Ask God' in the dream is repeated) is a biblical number recurring throughout the Bible as a symbol of completeness; Jonah is in the whale's belly for three days, Peter denies Jesus three times, Jesus is tempted by the devil three times in the desert, Jesus rose on the third day etc.

I can't wait to see that same light again!

I was sleeping one night and a warm bright light hovered over my eyes. It kept hovering and moving until I opened my eyes, and when I opened my eyes, I looked around my room and on the back wall of my bed I saw hundreds of glistening golden faded lights. I reached to wake my husband up so he could see it, but as I reached for him, the glistening lights on the wall started to fade. I went to the eye doctor to make sure everything was okay with my eyes, and the eye doctor told me my eyes were healthy, and there's nothing wrong. I can't explain what I saw, but I wasn't dreaming, I'm a light sleeper. In 2016 -2017 we lost our first grandson to SIDS, a month later our home flooded. As we were rebuilding our home, my dad passed away. Then a few months later our daughter with Muscular Dystrophy passed. The room I was sleeping in didn't even have lighting installed yet. What's your thoughts?

Seriously I want to find out if someone has had the same experience as me. I was around seven years old. One night I saw a light in the sky and I remember my dad panicking while driving home from a birthday party telling us to stop looking at it. We got home and that night when I was going to bed I saw a bright and I mean bright cross/star shape in the the doorway of my bedroom. My mother was behind me she didn't see a thing. I was so scared I ran to my mother but she couldn't understand why I was in hysterics. The electricity coming of this light was pulsing through my body it was nearly painful because of the static electricity. It despaired when I ran to my mothers arms. A few months went by and I was staying at my nans. And I was just getting into bed my Nan and grandad was downstairs and all of a sudden a humming noise and then flash it appeared again. A big bright star in the doorway. But this time it spoke it said " don't be afraid " time slowed right down and the static electricity returned. I ran right through it to get down stairs. But when I did the force of it pulsates so strong there's no word to describe it. The voice was so calming but once again I was in a panicked state. But since then nothing to my knowledge has happened. I now know from reading this thread I am not alone. I don't know if it was e.t or spiritual but I was to young to understand. Am not really religious I believe in a higher being but I know we are the chosen ones for what I don't know for why is still don't know. We will never know because we are human but when the day comes and we pass we will find out.

I'm orthodox christian, I advise whoever has experiences that seem "out of this world" to go speak to a trusted spiritual father - the evil forces of the world are smart and it's very easy to get tricked with our human senses - (eyes - ears etc) it's important to pray often and fast and have PATIENCE to be answered. Things take time like in nature / we are human so we tend to think for ourselves but remember faith is believing without seeing and we all need guidance to improve and sharpen our spiritual skill - so always question what you see or what your thoughts tell you. This is what I'm learning - spiritual dissonance - I too have had weird white light vision in the middle of the day when I was about 10 that spoke to me - getting older and looking back I start to question if that was the father of lies or The Father of Truth... It says right in there we all know it how the evil one masquerades as light 💡 - - the white light did not state a name or anything - - - the ULTIMATE deceiver - prays on our inner most wounds and fantasies. Uses the human body to evils advantage destroying us mind & body - - - instead of the biology Jesus Christ designed being used in order to achieve peace of heart and health of body through the commandments

This is one of the most personal and difficult things I've ever written about, but feel that I can, because there are so many other people who have had very similar experiences to my own. I was 36 years old and I was performing on stage one evening in a production with a huge group of actors and actresses. It was extremely ironic because I am a Jewess and the production had come all the way from America and we we're now performing this beautiful religious, Christian play in front of a huge audience in an enormous auditorium. Near the beginning of the 1st act I was singing with my fellow performers and all of a sudden tears just started streaming down my face and I saw the most amazing bright light right in front of me and I felt the most intense feeling of love and joy I have ever felt in my entire life. A feeling I have yet to experience again. It was so unexplainable and so difficult to express to other people I felt so alone in the pure happiness of what had just happened to me. After the show I asked my fellow actors if they had seen the light and no one else on that stage had seen anything like I'd seen. To this day whenever I think about this experience I cry because the memory is so vivid and I wish I could feel that feeling again.

About 11 years ago, I was trying to remember the Our Father prayer...Yes, I know I could go to the Bible to read it, but I was determined to let it flow from my thoughts/prayers since I knew it, but for some reason was stumped. I went out for a smoke break, which is located on a walkway between the building and parking structure. I looked to the west, asked my Lord to allow me to remember the prayer. All of a sudden, a cloud/fog/whiteness (pure white, no shadows, brightest white but not blinding) engulfed me. I could not see the building on my right side, I could not see the parking structure on my left side. It was PURE WHITE COMING AT ME. I suddenly had a warm feeling going from my head to my feet that I have never, ever felt before. After that, the bright, pure light left me. I begged it to come back! I will never forget it. I try to explain this to people and they don't believe me. Thank you for this site because I need to know others have experienced this and I don't feel alone. I feel Jesus blessed me with his pure white light.

Hello all,
The first time I ever had a vision from Jesus was back in 2015. I was in bed going back to sleep when I felt myself go into a deep place not sure how to describe it. I was thinking were am I going then from seeing black, I see BRIGHT WHITE LIGHT my eyes were closed but l'm very awake. So now I'm just in this white place and thinking were am I.Then I saw Jesus on a white horse appeared right in front of me he was looking straight at me. I was very afraid but I saw Jesus he had a black beard and a gold crown on his head and was dressed all in white, holding onto the horses reigns. Not sure how long this lasted but in my mind I said BEHOLD THIS IS JESUS I believe that was holy spirit Speaking to me as I don't talk like that. Afew years pasted and in 2017 I had the same experience only this time I was praying for Jesus to tell me what he wanted me to do for him. I fall into this white light again and this time a heard Jesus speak to me. He said "BE HOLY" then I came out of the vision.

As a deist for the past 50+ years, I have had short patience with traditional religions... (not to mention the historical/recent atrocities that have been committed in the name of 'religion')... That said, something very curious occurred at the moment of my mother's death 4 years ago... In the few seconds preceding her death while I watched beside her bed her barely breathing, something momentarily distracted my attention: a tiny, circular "white light" the diameter of a pencil eraser appeared a few feet on the wall above her bed. That extremely bright point of light silently expanded to the size of, perhaps, a 50¢ piece and then immediately shrunk and completely faded. All of this took, perhaps 5 seconds. When I looked down again at my mother, she had died. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I value highly the scientific method - and I have to observe something via my senses to KNOW it. I KNOW what I "observed". I've no idea what the "observation" represents. Theists and those of assorted traditional religions would, no doubt, have their "belief" as to that which I observed represents, e.g., the "soul" passing through a "portal" to "wherever"... I honestly don't know about such hypotheses... But I do KNOW what I explicitly OBSERVED. Were I to be 'lovingly-caring/etc.' I would like to hypothesize (NOT theorize) that because my mother knew me very well (and my disdain for 'revelations' outside of the scientific method) she gave me one final 'gift' before she died... A 'gift' to challenge my worldview. To this day I hope to find another person who has also observed the same, simple, profound phenomenon at the time of the passing of a loved one.

I live in Dominican Republic, my first language is Spanish, sorry for my English in advance xD.
My mom had always teach me about God and Jesus but nothing really special had happened to me, I just knew there was God.
An afternoon an aunt went to visit my house, she was a new Christian baptized and all, she was very happy telling me and my 14 year old sister, about how good is God and how he can save us and the world etc, The Night came nothing special happened, went to bed and until that time id had never pray with so much intensity, the main thing is that I was making a really curious and questioning prayer.
I was stomach down, head to the right side of the pillow, and I started praying:
Why so many people need to suffer? Why kids die in wars? Why you let wars happened? Why there is hunger in africa? Why is there bad people? Why are you a God of love but let all this things happen? Why? Etc. You get the picture, then I think I said thank you God anyways, for loving me and my family or so. And that I will still believe in him or so. I can't remember the complete prayer, I wished I had writed down this experience before...
I stopped the praying and was with closed eyes like for 2 or 3 minutes after praying, just thinking about what I just prayed and what my aunt said earlier to me just waiting to fall asleep. But I did not, I was still stomach down and from the windows behind me, a huge white shining light and it sound, like a "flick of a second " made me open up my eyes. There was no sound of anything (ceiling fan, dogs outside etc) just the light shining.
My heart started racing and got mad scared, I tried to turn my head to see but it was like the weight of the earth was upon my entire body, just from the corner of my eyes could see a little of the light shining from my window, then I heard the sound of a dove's wings flying, like when you hear a dove landing next to you, coming like from the middle of the light towards me, it sounded kind of loud, and then I felt like the dove landed on my feet's and melt on them and a warm feeling covered my body.
Then the light shut off like in a flick of a second again. I jump scared of bed turn on the light and went crying to my mom's room to tell what happened, she thought I was dreaming but sort of told me God can do that too, BUT I WAS NOT SLEEPING.
She prayed for me, then I went back to my room to sleep, and ask my sister that was there the whole time if she felt anything, but she did not, it was like that moment was just for me. I was really scared and covered my entire body with the sheets. I crave another visit like that now I think I will not scare but excited scare!
Nothing has happened since then, but now every time I want to confirm my faith in God, that is stronger than before, I think about this memory, and I feel awesome I love GOD!
I did not had any change after that until now, I think it was meant to be for me at this age, now I'm 30, suffered many problems with family, depression and a lack of faith maturing up, I even stopped believing in God for a while and I feel so stupid now thinking about it, like, God showed me that one night, how could I not hang on it? Now I do to keep my faith up, I go to a Christian church too.
I feel in my little human intelligence that he wanted to let me know that the world needs to be like this this in order to filter the ones who really love him and wants to go back to him again, then one that obey and believe no matter what, because I was questioning all of this but he rewarded me with this experience.

When I was 20 I accepted Jesus as my savior. Being un-churched until that time it was still very new to me and I had many questions. While I believe I was saved the moment I accepted that Jesus died for my sins, I still desired a "personal God experience" and every night when going to bed I would pray something to the effect of "God I know that you love me and saved me and I don't need you to prove yourself to me, but I desire to hear from you". I am not sure how many weeks I prayed that prayer, but one night it happened. I was dead asleep and I heard a very loud voice that simply said, "I have come", before I could question if it was my inner voice or God's I felt something pass through me. It started at my head and the best way I can describe it is it felt like a warm liquid thick kind of like honey. But instead of it running over me like if a liquid was poured on your head, it went right through me and as it did I saw a very bright light and immediately woke up. That event was 30 years ago and I do not doubt for a minute it was God. Unfortunately I have never had the experience again. I am recently going through a job loss and was randomly searching the net tonight looking for some God inspired stories when I stumbled on this site and it made me think of my own personal experience. For anyone who may read this, I pray for you to be a born again believer and know that Jesus died for you. Maybe HE let me have this experience because HE knew I would tell others and it would lead them to salvation. Thank you for letting me tell my story.

I posted my story many months back. Some of you may find this passage very interesting: JOB 4:12-16: "For a word was stealthily brought to me, and my ear caught a whisper of it. In my thoughts during visions of the night, when deep sleep falls upon us, fear came to me, and shuddering that terrified me to the bones. Then a spirit passed before me, and the hair of my flesh stood up. It paused, but its likeness I could not discern; a figure that was before my eyes, and I heard a still voice that said..."

First let me say I am a very down to Earth person I have always struggled with my faith. I don't believe In ghosts or spirits but I have to share my story. I'm 28 years old and I was on a very dark path addicted to heroin at the time of this event. I have been sober drug and alcohol free for almost 3 years now. But back in my active addiction at the time of this I wasn't high I remember being very desperate at the time... I was laying in my bed and it was about 3am. I keep trying to convince myself I was asleep and it was a dream. I also have never told anyone about this. An extremely bright light so bright I couldn't look directly at it was in the doorway and lit up my entire room but it was also dark and scary at the same time like it was a dark figure standing in the light. The figure talked to me through my mind and said Dont be scared and to change my ways... Those weren't words I heard but more like words that I felt. I hid under my covers scared to death hoping I was dreaming. The next few days I consistently tried to convince myself it was a very vivid dream. To this day I can't forget it... Deep inside I feel as though I know it wasn't a dream. I wish I could give more details but I don't have any. I just know I have never been that scared in my entire life. I'd like to say that I got clean right after that but I didn't...it took a few more months of hell but I eventually gave it up and got help. I haven't looked back. I will never forget that night as long as I live. I do remember asking God to help me before that event took place maybe it was an angel... If so they were very very scary but they did let me know they weren't there to hurt me or scare me. If you have a story similar to this just know you are not alone like I said I don't usually but these stories from anyone but I can't deny my own. It was very real

Last night something strange happened to me. I'm a 35yr old divorce and single mother, I wrk nights so its not unusual for me to fall in and out of sleep on my off nights. Last night I was lying dwn in my bed with my grls 2 and 14. Because I sleep with the tv on I recongnized the silence and I shifted to find the remote, thinking maybe myself or one of my grls rolled over on it accidently. When I turned to see the tv. We have satellite so it continued to say no connection. I live in a two story home so this is where it gets strange... There was this light beaming from my window I thought maybe a street light. No couldn't be not on the second floor of the house, then I thought maybe the moon is jus extra bright tonight, maybe. In my thoughts I wanted to investigate it but then the tv came back on and seemed like maybe I wanted to avoid the light and go back to sleep out of fear of not knowing. I don't know. If anyone can help me to understand please help me. I have never experienced anything like this before. I believe in the most highest King Jesus and I have always tried be best to stay close to GOD. I'm afraid to tell family and friends not knowing how they will react. Can anyone relate to this experience?

I've had this on my mind for a while now and recently due to some life changes I have decided to share my experience which is kind of similar to your experiences.
Around two months ago I was laying in bed asleep. I was woken up as I felt a constant rush of cool air on my face. I didn't immediately open my eyes. I remembered thinking all the windows in my room where closed. It was March time. I opened my eyes just a little. I could see my partner and our son who was in between us both. From behind my head was this massive bright light so bright I knew I couldn't physically look into it. I kept my eyes almost closed. My son also woke and cried out for his dad and turned away from the light. The wind in the room and the light lasted for quite a long time. When it went I went back to sleep. I was confused by this experience but after reading how similar other people's experiences are to my own I'm now thinking maybe it was an Angel of some type. The timing of the experience would make sense. Part of me wonders if it was for me or my son. I also had a similar experience many years ago when I was in hospital. A nurse walked in and all I could see was a pink beaming light it covered everything in the room and made it pink. I asked the nurse why is everything pink. She looked back at me like I was mad. I then went back off to sleep and when I woke the room was no longer glowing pink.

I had much the sam experience 35 years ago. I experienced an incredible white light that passed straight through me. I could not look at the source of the light but knew I was engulfed by a force much greater than myself. The brilliantly pure white light was the most magnificent thing that I can't even put into words other than the creator. I had no body, and was placed on the left hand side of the source. An instinct told me do not fear for you are with me. Can I just say at this point I was not on earth but somewhere else without a body and without fear and in the presence of can I say, a much greater being. This devine feeling made me not want to ever leave, or awaken. I was told something, I can't recall... All I know is there was no fear of death infact... The weight of life on earth made me want to stay in the light for eternity. I awoke in bed in the early hours feeling shocking... I could not move one arm, and thought I was dying, remebered the experience and fell asleep. I awoke to daylight and still don't understand fully what this experience was, all I know is there's no fear of death if this is what I experienced.
