Real Spiritual Experiences

Coming Back To Life


About a month ago while I was driving home from a Narcotics Anonymous meeting the most amazing thing happened. It was as if time had stopped and my body went numb, although I was still driving. I began repeating "everything is one" over and over again out of nowhere. This amazing feeling continued for about a minute until I pulled in my driveway. Little did I know that this was just the beginning.

The next night I prayed to "whatever could hear me" and I admitted that I knew nothing. I had no idea why I was alive, or why I survived serious drug addiction when I should've died so many times. I was basically admitting that I knew nothing and really desired to find truth. This is after a few months clean from drugs and dabbling in religion and spirituality. Suddenly during prayer I started having incredibly vivid visions. I later found out that I had just opened my 3rd eye chakra. I felt amazing and all my senses were heightened. I got up and looked in the mirror and I could see my aura and it was beautiful. I started crying and laughing at the same time and I knew that life was never going to be the same, and it hasn't. I have gone from spiritually dead to truly alive. Also, I see auras around everyone now.

Every single day I learn something knew and at the same time I am unlearning if that makes any sense. I guess I am just realizing that much of what I have been taught throughout life doesn't matter or isn't true. I feel that ANYONE could have similar experiences if they let go of ego and identifying with the past. At least that's what it took for me. I am currently attending narcotics anonymous meetings on a regular basis and I'm trying to apply the spiritual principles behind the 12 steps to the best of my abilities. Part of the reason I go to meetings is because I want to help other so-called "hopeless drug addicts" the way I was helped. Just a year ago I could not have imagined feeling the way I do today or being spiritual or having the optimism I now have. I truly wish that everyone could have some off what I got. I feel like a little kid again as I find myself asking new questions everyday. I realize that life never has to be boring unless we make it boring. Just sharing this experience gives me a very joyous feeling.

Yea, I guess there are people I know that they are resistance towards substance abuse, but not all, most of us are vulnerable. Your enlightening experience may help others who are now experimenting with the substance that they should take precaution. Or could join the narcotics anonymous meetings like you to have their true understanding of the real danger of using drug or other substances unless we really know what we are doing. With the guidance of the expert, or enlightened being.
