Thanks for the reply.
My experience was initiated by a subject which may violate ATS terms and conditions, if you know what I mean.
I know many people will think I was just having hallucinations and stuff, but this was way different to my previous experiences of this nature.
Anyway, here goes.
I was at a party, and was with a friend in the living room of a large house.
I had always had a kind of spiritual dilemma, in that I felt I needed to find out who I am.
I was feeling the initial effects, and asked the question; 'If there is a God, Creator, Ancestors or anything, out there, please tell me who I am'.
The feeling as I was asking this was one of sheer desperation as it was important to me.
Then someone came in the room through the door behind me, and when I turned around to see who it was.
The door was still closed and there was no'body' there.
There was, however, a 'human shaped space' in the atmosphere, and I said to my mate, 'Can you feel something?' to which he replied 'yes'.
He then, for some reason got up and went out of the room, and the presence went around the back of the sofa to the opposite side.
I kept wondering who it was, and kept asking, but I got the feeling that whoever it was, was enjoying my bafflement, and holding off for a while.
Then a picture of a really good schoolfriend of mine who had passed over a few years earlier appeared in my mind, and a 'voice' came into my head
saying 'You know damn well who you are.' , and sure enough I did. My question was answered.
Then it was as if the whole room was in an elevator, and moving upwards at a tremendous speed, and the walls, and all the objects in the room
gradually took on a kind of transparency.
What I could perceive beyond it was something so beautiful and fantastic I will never forget it as long as I live.
It was a sort of universe of incredible architectures, like cathedrals one minute (If time can be a factor in this instance) and then some equally
fantastic structures the next. All glowing with their own internal light, constantly changing and melting into different forms, which went on forever
in all directions.
The Spirits, or Stars as I like to call them were extremely bright points of light which hovered and zipped about, came and said hello and zoomed off
again leaving me with sensations of joy, love and abandon which are beyond the best feelings I've ever experienced.
Each individual indentified themselves by surrounding themselves with a kind of hologram of associated imagery of what they were in life. For
instance, the Star of Jimi Hendrix was surrounded by images of animated guitars and various psychedelic objects, and so on, which was odd to me,
because I wasn't even into Hendrix at the time, so in my opinion it couldn't have been coloured by my personal preferences in music.
It was almost too much for me to bear, and I was laughing and crying at the same time, and later on when I went to see my still corporeal friends who
were in other rooms of the house, they thought I had flipped and gone a bit crazy, which of course, I had.
I felt totally at one with the multiverse, and nothing mattered anymore, and that all things add up in the end.
I didn't see any tunnels of light, nor was I aware of having left my body.
It was as though I was seeing 'through' my eyes, rather then with them, and the thing that was doing the seeing was my own Star, or self.
In a paradoxical kind of way, I was 'in' the multiverse, and I also contained it.
Suddenly, I understood all the books on spirituality I had been reading, whereas before I could only accept what they were saying from an outsider's
point of view.
I could go on for ages about this, but this post is turning into an epic, and most of the main points have been outlined above.
I know I'll probably get flamed and stuff, and some people will call BS and all that, but I honestly don't care, as quite a few people to whom I've
related this experience have looked at me like I was some kind of nutter, but thankfully most have been interested.
The way I see it I experienced what I experienced, and am relating it as requested.
I'd rather believe in this than in an idea of everything coming to a dead end at the termination of this lifetime, and seeing as hardly anyone
actually knows for sure what will happen, a belief is the best we can hope for in my opinion until the big crunch.
I'm also aware that many shamanic cultures use this technique to experience similar states of consciousness, and I reckon I did it whilst being
unaware of what I was actually doing.
I believe this as much as I believe I am sitting here typing this, and I hope that someone will find some comfort from it.
Thanks for your interest, and all the best.
By the way, some fantastic accounts on here so far, keep 'em coming.
Was the message to your relative relevant to their situation?
