On Tuesday, October 18th, 2011 at around 10PM the Universe (God?) unveiled some secrets to me as it/he confirmed my belief in the higher power. Readers may choose to believe me, choose not to believe me, or choose to set my story aside and save their judgment for later in life. All I can say is that my experience will be confirmed as true without question, by everyone, when each of our human bodies eventually dies. Until then, only BELIEVERS and fellow KNOWERS, that have been as incredibly blessed with a personal experience as I have, will truly appreciate the miracle of my experience on that special day.
I see five classifications of spiritual belief in the higher power. There are non-believers, doubters, believers tainted with seeds of doubt, strong believers, and there are knowers. I have spent time in my life in each category, having finally reached my moment of knowing, which shall never leave me.
I was in my hotel room, on a vacation/business trip with my business partner and good friend, Kurt. Kurt grew up in a spiritual family and has never been shy about sharing his belief in the higher power of the Universe. The topic of reincarnation came up and I confessed to him my "likely belief" in reincarnation due to the story of "James 3" which I had seen on TV and on the internet about a year ago. Over time I pondered the story and I found no possible loophole for James' story to be false, which was very uplifting and exciting to believe in, having always been between a non-believer and tainted believer my entire life (I am now 37). I won't go into detail about James' story but he was a World War II fighter pilot in a prior life that had nightmares as a child. I encourage everyone to look up his story as it is obviously a very meaningful one to me.
During this conversation with Kurt, at some point I broke down crying, expressing my thankfulness to him for being the only person in my life that I have ever really trusted to share any spiritual questions or opinions with. Kurt spoke to me with such conviction and doubtlessness of the higher power that at some point during my uncontrollable crying I became a true believer, having removed all seeds of doubt from my mind and my soul. This was the point where my miraculous moment occurred.
As I layed back on the hotel room couch, wiping my tears away, and a strange electric-like energy began entering my body. I could hear it and feel it, but I could not see it. Something very strange was happening to me but I did not fear it at all. My arms spread slightly away from my hips, holding my hands out, welcoming this incredible energy that was entering my body. Although the electric-like energy had no smell, I could not breathe it in fast enough. I was taking in very fast and deep breathes of air, welcoming this amazing power or being into my body.
I felt like this was my confirmation with the Universe. I had finally eliminated all doubt of the higher power and I was now being rewarded with a moment in heaven. The feeling I had was like a never ending feeling of happiness, joy, and love, like an infinite entire-body orgasm. I was given a moment in heaven and could feel the truth of the world, that we are all just pieces of one soul, from one source, and we will all become one once again in the afterlife. The incredible feeling of love and that orgasmic bliss is what we will feel for eternity when our soul is welcomed to heaven.
I certainly do not have all of the answers, but this secret of the Universe has been unveiled to me and I am now sharing it with all who will listen. I would like to share this experience with my wife and family, but I don't believe they are ready and I am afraid of the backlash of rejection from them. There will be a moment for each of us to become a knower. Unfortunately, the large majority of us must leave our human bodies behind first. I am one of the incredibly blessed souls, so fortunate to be chosen by the higher power to share the message. People can choose what they want to do with it. I am just the messenger. My interpretation of my experience left me with the following message that needs to be shared:
Love one another because we truly are just one soul at the end of it all. Turn greed into giving and anger into compassion. Feel for others, help others, and share as much love as you can during your lifetime. Enjoy life every day and choose to find the good in everything and everyone. See things from various different perspectives. Not everything is good because the Universe requires balance. That is just the way it has to be. Do whatever you feel you possibly can to purify your soul during your lifetime and the reward of eternal heavenly bliss will be shared with you.
I don't know what the "rules" are for reincarnation but I have concluded it to be fact that it does exist. After all, it was the "James 3" reincarnation story that ultimately enabled me to have a glimpse of heaven. I am seeking to connect with others that have had similar experiences. Upon coming out of my miraculous experience, the first thing that Kurt told me was "Welcome. You are one of us now." I know that there are more of "us" out there. I am so blessed and incredibly grateful to be chosen to be one of the very few to receive such a gift. Perhaps the universal balance requirement is why most people will choose to not believe my story. That is ok with me because I KNOW the truth and it is absolutely incredible. Even the ignorant will find out the truth eventually.
Now six days after my experience I am trying to re-adjust back into normal society. I have cried many tears of joy almost every day. It is still so unbelievable to me that what happened actually happened. It is true and I cannot deny it. I don't know exactly the extent of what my higher purpose in life is, but sharing my story is certainly a big part of it. Please respond with your story. I am anxiously looking forward to meeting others in my area (Seattle).
