Spiritual Fire That Doesn't Burn


A few short months ago I found myself unusually tired and decided to hit the sack early. After falling asleep I became aware that I was dreaming. I had a feeling that I had had the dream before, all I can remember of the dream was me running down a spiraled set of stairs in dim lighting. Most of the time during dreams I'm right there in the action--feeling emotions and reacting as if they were real, but in this dream I had a strange sense of detachment. Then in my dream my perception changed and it was like I was watching myself run down the stairs, it was like I was watching what was happening as if it were on tv.

Then suddenly I felt myself being pulled away from my dream and watched as the dream sort of evaporated before my eyes and became acutely aware that I was now laying in my bed on my side near the edge of the bed with my arms slightly outstretched in front of me. My eyes were closed and a golden light sort of shined through my eyelids (like when someone waves a flashlight in front of you when you have your eyes closed) and moved from left to right.

I then had the most amazing and sensation I've ever experienced. I felt a surge of hot/warm energy surge from the tips of my toes all the way up my entire body. The energy was sort of like a wind too because when the energy reached up to my head it blew my bangs up from my face. The best way I can describe it is it was like a fire that didn't burn but raged within and about me. The feeling was really intense and I was terrified and confused and I tried to open my eyes but found that I couldn't, then I became even more scared because I couldn't even see what was happening. In fear I instinctively tried to pull my hands closer to my body but when I tried to pull I felt a pair of slightly bigger hands holding mine.

During this whole time the surge was still going on and I squeezed the hands holding mine and felt great reassurance that they wouldn't let me go. I remember having this brief notion that there was an angel holding my hands and reassuring me seemingly without words. It felt like if whoever was holding my hands could have easily pulled me right out of my body into some otherworldly place and found myself wishing they would.

Then my perception changed and I found myself looking down at myself on the bed struggling to stop whatever was happening. As I was looking at myself I had this strong thought pop into my head that said, "Have faith" and as soon as the thought popped into my head I saw myself relax and stop struggling then I was back in my body again, still unable to open my eyes.

Then the hot energy seemed to intensify and I could feel a warm like wind travel up my entire body. It felt hot yet it didn't burn and I found that very strange. A final wave of it traveled up my body and forcefully blew more of my hair away from my face and then it stopped. Immediately I opened my eyes with my heart pounding a million miles a minute and saw that no one was there. What scared me the most was the feeling that I was completely alone, I felt abandoned.

I glanced at my clock and realized that I had only been sleeping for an two hours. I was so scared and confused by it that I searched the web for anyone who might have had a similar experience and came across this site and it made me feel greatly relieved. I have come to terms with what happened and view it as real and not what some people would call sleep paralysis. But feedback and comments, anything at all, would be greatly appreciated.

I was prepearing to take a nap one day, before hand I was outside and I observed the heat waves on my truck. I thought how interesting that I can see it and feel it but not touch it.

I hadnt practiced astral projection in a while, so I decided I would start my nap in meditation and I pictured fire, I believe I used the tri fold flame as a focus point.

Eventually I dozed off. When I awoke, I thought I was awake, but quickly realized I was in AP. After this realization, images quickly flashed before my eyes. I centered my focus and relaxed.

The moment I completely focused, like a torch ignites, I heard and felt a fire, it crackled and popped, I could feel it surging upwards from the bottom of my feet to my head, and I could feel it everywhere in and around my body, while I was in AP slightly above my body.

I didn't understand it, but I stayed relaxed. Even after coming back into my body and awakening physically, for a few minutes or so, I could still feel the sensations throughout.

I have had this experience 3 times now. It is the same fire that consumed the burning bush, maybe even the fire that only Jesus can baptize with. Thank you to everyone who shared.

We Are One.

I have been looking for information related to this kind of supernatural things but it's been hard to find. Well, I already read all the comments posted on this page and it sounds interesting to share what I lived some days ago. I went to my bedroom, hit the lights off and jumped on my bed, got my blanket on and I looked up and immediately I started seeing some flames but they were not in my bedroom, they were attached to my eyes and wherever I moved my eyes, they moved too. I did not get in panic, I just relaxed and they disapeared. It lasted about 5 or 7 seconds. The only thing I know is that next morning I felt like if 1 ton of weight had been taken from me. Does someone mnow about this? Thanks

If you ever see this message, contact me (abraham.jg [at] I'm from Mexico, I have had some expiriences similar to yours. I'm only going to talk about the first one (but not the strongest one). It happened about eight years ago. I was dreaming that I was running in the streets, and everytime I found somebody familiar to me I asked if there were many gods, and everybody said: "yes, there are many gods". I didn't like that answer, so I continued running and running until I found my mother, who aways had believed only in one God, so I hurried to ask her if there were many gods, and she answered to me that in fact there were many gods. I couldn't accept that, so I went back two steps and raised my eyes to the sky, then I got surrounded by too many stars and floating in the space. Finally I said: "but there's a God who created all the other gods". After that I became awake but I still was lying on my bed, and I finished the sentence in this way: "He is the God of Israel". Immediately I felt like if someone were spillin a kind of oil in fire on me, starting from my finger tips of both arms to my head. It was hot, and ruged like fire, but it didn't burn. I became scared, I jumped up from my bed and the fire was slowly put out.

That's all. I have to say that at that time, I had been praying to God a lot everyday. I do believe that Christ is the way, but it doesn't mean that I have done things all right all the time. I must make an effort to do it better.

See you.

There are lots of experiences here re: this story and comments.
The energy spoken of is a spiritual awakening. Lots of information on these feelings can be found in Kundalini Yoga (which I do not recommend practicing unless there is an experienced teacher... A true master).
Regarding feeling the feet upwards, to me this indicates a yogic posture from a past life... Maybe when you achieved an awakening.
Being able to see 360 degrees means that you were looking from your crown chakra or higher.
When you leave your body there are beings that are helpers (call them by whatever name you wish). To some people they appear to be angels because of their ethereal appearance (having wings). The mind interprets this as you return.
You will have these beings close by as long as you are not on drugs or alcohol.

Sometimes in life there are things that happen such as falling into a "dead zone", and then there are those who roam these zones that attempt to feed on those who have lost there way. Then there are beings who will track those other beings down before they can strike and deport them while sending the lost home and shareing there light with the lost in order to protect them. Have faith and you will see the road that leads to thee.

Thank you for sharing this story. I have done some research in the last few months about spiritual awareness and have found what you are describing to be your own personal expansion into a higher spiritual state.:) It can be very scary, but learning to go with the flow of it is enlightening. I guess we are getting prepared for something that needs to happen for us to be aware that we are loved and that we need strong faith. Faith that anything can happen for us. If we are believing in The Lord. Our minds have been wired to believe whatever has been fed to us. At some point, those of us that experience these delight-ful yet unexplainable events, need to realize that not all is what it appears to be. There are so many ways at obtaining spiritual guidence, and at times without us fully accknowleging that we need them it comes full force. Your experience is awesome and blessed! Just know that you are on a spiritual journey now, and things will happen that you never knew could. A whole new world is opening up to you. One that many people don't even know exsist! Its having that personal relationship and believing and trusting in God that we are indeed his children, and he has an army of helpers to bring us ever so closer to him, so that we can feel a tenth of the love he has to give us. I believe our souls know what is going on, yet our ego's are so brain-washed that we can't let go and let God. That is what he wants us to do. Have Faith in all things through HIM! God Bless!

Yes this has also happened to me and it was AA Uriel. I was told it was, I knew it when it was happening. I had the most intense light I have ever seen enter my chest as I woke up from a dead sleep. It was brilliant and warm and some how I knew it was full of knowledge. After this experience I was able to help a spirit cross over and now I channel angels. This has just happened within the last couple of months. I believe we are infused with knowledge and then given a few exercises before we decide what out life path will be that we want to take on...
Hope this helps,

Dear LovesxWarrior,

To answer your question about my seeing or sensing an angel or some being, I must say no. I've always imagined that what I experience is some kind of out of body experience, but without going too far from the body.

I will read up on Uriel, thanks for the tip.

Wow that's really amazing and comforting to me. When this happens have you ever felt the presence of an angel or some otherworldy being?

I am sure it was some sort of angel that held my hands during my experience. In my mind's eye I saw this painting of a sort of masculine yet also feminine person with a golden halo thing like you see in old paintings and the angel had sorta dirty blond hair.

I prayed that the Lord would reveal to me who it was and today I was web browsing and came across the archangel Uriel who is also known as the "fire of god" and supposedly uses his flaming sword to purify a person's mental and emotional understanding and well-being. I encourage you to look into it if you haven't already.

Hi LovesxWarrior,

In medical terms some would say that I experienced sleep paralysis, but in the past couple of years I've started to think that there is also a spiritual aspect to this phenomenon. These experiences started when I was about 15 years old (I am now 34), and they seemed to occur randomly.

About two years ago I had an occurence that started to make me think about this more seriously. Here's the story. I was feeling stressed and very frustrated for a number of reasons on my first day of a four day trip. My stresses were from a situation which had accumulated over a period of time prior. I was going to visit my in-law grandparents who live a few hours drive away. After I got there I lied down and fell into a deep sleep. During this sleep I could feel this energy like a strong magnetic force or something, warm but not burning, as you descibe it. The pressure was also very strong but not painfull. This energy was flowing in the area of my chest for some time, and then strongly in my teeth for a while, and in areas near my mouth. The strange thing is that I could "feel" my feet and body pointing upwards to the ceiling, although I was pysically lying down on my back. What more is that at some point I started to see around me, and I was also looking at parts of the room that were not visible from the position in which I was lying. I did say that I had many other energy feelings in my sleep before, but this one was the strongest and most surreal of all.

Maybe this could have only been a dream but I don't think so. When I woke up I was really feeling refreshed and my body really felt healed. I had not felt so well in years. I was feeling ucky and sick before my sleep with a headache, upset stomach and weak. I felt good for a while, but I then returned into my previous state of frustration and I started to feel worse again. The following weeks I would go to sleep hoping to have these experiences again, but no hope. I felt like I was depending on some outer force to heal me, but I realized that I need to become more dependent on myself and use my positive emotions which heal me, and avoid thoughts that lead to negative emotions. I can't be too sure about what this whole thing is about, but I am eager to learn more and to communicate with others who have similar experiences.

Thanks so much for commenting on my story. I find myself just honored to have this experience and am simply amazed that you have had these sort of experiences many times! I have a few questions for you.

How often does this happen to you and does this happen more often when there is conflict or turmoil in your life or does it just happen randomly?

Can you give me a brief summary of one of your experiences if it's not too much trouble?

Dear vagabondfaith

I definitely believe that the spirit was good... Actually I had this notion while it was going on that it was an angel or maybe a saint now that I think about it I'm leaning towards a saint or something because I remember I didn't think it to have's hard to explain...

Although I was really freaked out at first and scared after it happened, I don't believe that the spirit caused it, it was just me not understanding what was happening.

I'm a follower of Christ so I really believe in a Higher Power, my experience only further confirms and strengthens my faith.

I have had these experiences many times. But I still can't say exactly if they are good or bad or if it depends on my attitude. I am very curious as to why the entity seemed to go away after you decided to relax and have faith. Is this because the visitor was not compatible with your relaxed and faithful energy? I have a belief that there are many spiritual entities around us at all times, and if we are faithful and believing, only those spirits with the same energy can or will interact with our lives.

Wow! It is hard to say much more than just Wow!
I would like to ask you a few questions though if I may?
As you look back on this do you think that the spirit, and it obviously was a spirit, was good or bad or just indifferent? I think this is a very important question. Also did you have any sort of Christian or non christian experiences something like this before?
Are you a believer in a Higher Power or do you put down our existence here on earth to just chance?
So that's a lot of questions for you. God bless and have a wonderful day.
I look forward to reading your reply either on this website or to me personally by email michaeljaffrayk [at]
