Let me start off by saying that I am going through a rough time in my life. I am young at 23yrs old, I just had a child which is a huge change in life and I am completely overwhelmed! Last night 4/11/11 I had a slight mental break down at around 3 in the morning and contemplated killing myself (never a good place to be.) I did manage (with my husbands help) to get my head out of that space and go to bed eventually. Because I didn't go to bed until almost 4am and then woke up at 7 this morning with my son I did not get much sleep. So at around 6pm tonight I layed down with my son until he fell asleep then moved him into his crib and layed back down and went to sleep myself. I slept hard but while I was sleeping I had an amazing experience. It did start out as a dream, a dream of natural disaster which progressed into something very different.
In my dream I was inside a huge house on a bluff looking out over the ocean and I had my son, mother father and sisters with me. In the dream we had just had an earthquake and we were watching the water in the ocean recede and we were supposed to be getting hit with a title wave. I rushed everyone out of the house and we all got into a vehicle and I was driving. We were trying to get to higher ground before the wave hit. The first route we took was a dead end because the bridge we had to cross over was damaged from the earth quake and crumbled. So I turned around and started going back the way we came. I ended up taking a right hand turn onto this little logging road. As I began to proceed up this road the road began to get REALLY steep!
(This is where it gets weird!) I just kept going up and up and up on an angle that a car would NOT be able to drive on. As I continued we started moving REALLY fast, to the point where it felt like I was being propelled forward at sickly speeds. All I could see then was BRIGHT LIGHT and beautiful colors, the colors where other worldly - like nothing I have ever seen before.
As I began to slow again and things started to come back into focus. I was standing in a cave, the walls were covered in blue light and there were pools and water falls inside the cave. The walls and rocks in the cave were all covered in writing and arithmetic and all sorts of never ending knowledge. There was a man standing a few feet away from me who was a young man dressed in a white colored shirt and white slacks and not wearing any shoes. He was clean cut and very handsome. He embraced me and told me he had been waiting for me to get there because he knew I needed him. He told me that he had something to show me and to follow him.
I followed him out of the cave and all I could see in all directions was ocean and cliff face. We started walking along the cliff face and we came to what I can only describe as a huge castle. He told me that he built it for me, that he built one for all of us and that this one was mine. It was all built out of beautiful cut stone and marble. He told me that my friends were waiting for me and to go in. When I opened the door the inside was like a jungle and all the exotic wild animals that I have taken care over the years that have passed on were all in there living in this jungle on the inside of my castle (my "friends" that were waiting for me.) I do rescue and rehabilitation of exotic wild life and have for years.
Anyway the man walked in behind me and told me that I could come back any time, that he was always going to be here for me when I needed him and now I knew where to find him. He told me I couldn't stay here right now but that this home was waiting for me and the time would come eventually for me to move in. He gave me another hug kissed me on the forehead and told me that I had to go back because my son needed me. Again I started to travel through this hole filled with light and color only this time it felt as though I was falling. As I started falling I began to hear my son cry but it sounded like it was a long ways away, it got closer and closer until I could finally hear it clearly and then everything got really still. I opened my eyes up and I was in my house and awake (kind of) and my son was crying in his room. When I tried to get up my legs felt like jello, My Body was cold and stiff, I was dizzy and I couldn't walk, I couldn't think or see straight and I felt sick to my stomach. After about 20-30 minutes this feeling finally went away but for an hour after I kept getting these intense surges of energy starting at the top of my head and rushing down my spine. Where did I go tonight? This is the first time I have EVER experienced anything like this. I am not a religious person but I don't have any other way to explain this experience other than to say I traveled to heaven and saw god. Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this?
