I'd just like to start this thread by saying, ive been here for some time now and anyone who has seen me post will know my feet are firmly on the
ground and im generally quite skeptical about things..
I have never told anyone this and was never going to post it here, (not even sure why im even doing this now) but I'd like to share this experience i
had many years ago and hopefully someone can help shed some light on it.
10 years ago my life was in complete turmoil, i lost someone very close to me in unexpected and tragic circumstances. It was a complete shock and
completely turned my life upside down.
Before this happened i had no interest or knowledge in any alternative subjects, i was quite happy living in this world, blind and oblivious to what
was really going on around me..
After the funeral, a dear friend really into spiritual subjects told me to see a medium, initially i laughed it off but after some persuasion i agreed
to think about it (just wanting to change the subject)
Weird things started to happen shortly after and without going into details i mean damn strange, things to this day i cannot explain.. to cut a long
story short i thought about my friends advice and thought what the hell.. i picked up the phone book and picked out a random psychic that lived near
I said to myself if she could see me today ill do it, after calling her she told me someone had just cancelled and she could see me that evening.. so
now bear in mind this was a completely random choice, this woman didnt know anything about me.. i went there as skeptical as anything and i was sure
not to give anything away. she did all the talking..
what she went on to tell me blew my mind, no amount of cold reading or guessing could have come up with the 100% accurate information regarding the
unusual circumstances of this persons death, she also me things no one else on this planet other than the deceased would have known.
also during this reading she told me i was very gifted with psychic abilities and also am a healer.. (this i laughed off, and still to this day have
never followed up on this)
later that night after returning home is when the strange experience occurred (this or anything remotely similar to it has only ever happened once) i
went up to my bedroom and lay on the bed, it felt like the room was spinning and everything i looked at seemed to have a white light around it (the
best way to describe it is almost like a force field) suddenly colours started flashing before my eyes, bright and warm colours then in an instant it
felt as though i was sucked out of my body and into the brightest but warmest light i had ever seen.
Then i heard a booming voice... it called my name and told me "you must believe" i asked who it was and the voice again told me "you have a gift,
be wise with it" i asked how do i know this is real and suddenly a symbol appeared....
It started as a four pointed 'star' with a circle in the middle but four aditional points joined on to it and it became an eight pointed 'star'
as this happened the voice said "this is when you will know it is time"
suddenly in a rush which felt like downward i was back in my body.. i was a little dazed and confused to say the least..
as said before nothing like this has happened before or since this experience and afterwards i steered clear of the spiritual world.
i have looked for the meaning of this symbol and the closest thing i could find is something called the star of ishtar.. (sorry i cant download any
pics on this computer but ill provide a link)

I have never found the true significance of this symbol especially as it transformed from four to eight but that is the closest representation.
ive also seen something similar since it happened but again no real significance at the time..
After this happened i never really thought much about it and continued living my life, although i was more open minded about things and it was
actually what got me interested in these fringe topics.
so thats it, if anyone has any knowledge on such things your input would be greatly appreciated, maybe it was some weird mind trick or hallucination
(no drugs or alcohol were involved) but it seemed random and so real at the time..
