When this experience happened, I had a lot of unresolved hurt and pain in my heart from my past. I felt very alone. Also at this time, a man I believed at the time to be my soulmate bluntly told me he didn't love me. He was at my house and was moving the next day, so he was saying his goodbye to me. I remember when he left, I ran up to my room and laid in my bed and cried. I couldn't control the tears. My thoughts became suicidal. I cried so hard that I fell asleep.
I don't know how much time had passed when I was awaken abruptly. Before me was a bright, blue tunnel and it was swirling in front of me. This "tunnel" was radiating feelings of intense love and peacefulness into me. I felt like this light was taking away all the pain and healing my mind. I cannot describe this feeling in words very well but it felt like I was in pure ecstasy. Then a voice coming from the tunnel popped into my head and kept saying, "I love you. Everything is going to be alright. You must be happy with yourself. I love you so much, love yourself"...over and over again! And the light! This tunnel or vortex was so unbelievably bright and had a gorgeous blue tone to it, but it did not hurt my eyes. This tunnel that enveloped my entire body seemed to be healing me with unconditional love. I was falling into a trance and the tunnel kept swirling faster and faster until I woke up.
My religious beliefs are non-denominational nor was I was under the influence of drugs. Ever since that experience, I value life much more. When things get difficult or I feel like I can't go on, my thoughts go back to that night and I know that "everything is going to be alright".
Since that experience, I believe there is someone watching over me. An angel? I have had incredible luck with running into money. I am a poor college student and couldn't find sufficient work to pay for my commuting expenses. A monthly ticket for the train is $230. I had $0 and school was starting in a week. Within that week, I found $350 literally laying on the sidewalk... In large bills. This $ was literally lying right by my feet, I did not steal it nor did it belong to anyone. At this point, I was in total shock. Needless to say, I made it to school!
I wish I could claim I am lying and I am a great storyteller but all this is absolutely true. I did not exaggerate or twist any of these events.
I want to someday devote my time to helping other people. This experience has profoundly change my life in a positive way. There is hope and Christ, Allah, Buddha... Whatever you believe, truly loves YOU.
