Im 22, started meditating (with trying to force an OOBE) about the age of 15.
I've had 1 OOBE, I saw stars and freaked out, it was early on, and I went back to my body
But I've had what have either been Astral Projections, or Dreams with visions. I've met my spiritual guide, and was shown "my place". I've talked
to him about something I found in this giant void, it was almost like a bubble, with a porthole (not portal, lol) in it.
One night I was meditating on whether or not all religions are true, and possible. In the dream, or projection. I was 'transported' to "the void"
(i always, always, start here, like my peace zone) as I was floating I was shown what, uhm, its hard to describe, it looked almost like a infinite
petal lotus, that was unfolding, with rainbow colors (theres a scene in the movie "The Fountain" when the male character goes to xibalba, and it is
exactly the same visual i had, and this was pre-fountain). I was curious what this thing was going to do. Eventually i got close enough to it, that it
blocked my entire view, and this might sound crazy, but Buddhas face sort of rotated/materialized in the middle of it. He smiled, and I was happy to
see him, i was honored to be able to view it. Then he continued rotating (to the left, i will never forget this one vision), and the next face that
came up was Jesus, and again, he smiled, and i was honored. I figured, "ok, better write this down" so i go to open my eyes, and i couldnt. I felt
as if someone had their had over my face squeezing it. I tried harder to open my eyes, and i could feel my eyelids squeezing tighter closed. Then, as
Jesus turns, a womans face comes up, I have no clue who this woman is, but she just stared at me, no smile, after a few minutes, my muscles relaxed,
and i could open my eyes.
but the odd thing was, these faces, they didnt look like what Buddha, or Jesus are normally portrayed as, jesus was beardless, with medium length
hair, and a much softer face, not all angled like pictures show. Buddha, didnt have holes in his hears, and he looked a lot thinner than what hes
shown as too.
this might sound crazy, but the next day, i had to drive to my buddies house (about 30 minutes away) and I swear, everything was brighter, grass was
greener, the sky was gourgeous, it was amazing.
but honestly, i cant say for sure whether it was a dream or not, I just know somewhere in my heart, that it was the true faces, or real holy
(i hope someone replys to this, i never get any replys and i spill my guts,
edit for this: what i saw was pretty close, its at 5:48 of this youtube movie, the only difference is mine was rainbow colored
