***Just wanted to add this morning 07-19-15 I awoke for the first time with a yellow/golden flame, eyes closed. So, started out purple/indigo went on
for several years, last year green came in for the first time and has reoccurred, earlier this year white came in for the first and only time, and now
just this morning yellow/golden for the first time ever. Pretty exciting stuff.
This started for me about fall of 2006. I saw an owl in broad daylight outside of our house and it starred at me shortly before flying away. Not too
long after this I had my first experience. I woke up and literally saw this purple/lavender/indigo color in my vision. It lasted for about 8-10
seconds and then faded away.
After this I would see it randomly while awakening from sleep or sometimes when drifting off to sleep. This purple flame as I would describe it is
accompanied with a very calming and blissful feeling. It would change shapes, shrink inward on itself only to expand again, was ever moving, would
briefly produce faces at times, seemed like I was flying through it at times like a tunnel, and was always pleasant.
Last year 2014 I had surgery. When I started coming to in the post anesthesia recovery unit this color was literally pulsating and massaging me. I
felt so loved and felt as if it was actually healing me. I kept a huge smile on my face all the way to my room and drifted off to sleep smiling. For
the first time the color green accompanied my purple flame. They were together and even separate. I remember feeling like I knew them and they were
talking to me with love and healing me.
Now, it's easy to assume this was the anesthesia giving me this euphoric sensation and I would buy into that IF I had never had this purple flame
before with my eyes closed. But I tell you it was the same flame only this time with a green companion. The nurses were talking to themselves saying
how happy and content I looked. Totally at ease, with joy, and peace. I even told one nurse she was an angel before I had memory of coming to.
Earlier this year I had another surgery. Waking up in the post anesthesia unit I had this experience again only less intense this time. But, for
the first time I had the color white to go along with purple and green. I haven't seen the white since that time, but I still see the purple and
To produce this sensation at home usually it comes on if I'm getting my back massaged by my wife and I go off into almost a meditation. This is
when I'll see the green as well. One time while listening to music that is supposed to help you meditate the purple flame came about for just a few
It seems to me it appears most when I'm just coming out of sleep or just going into sleep. If I think about it too much I'll lose it, but if I'm
still in that halfway point between being awake and being in dream I can hold it a lot longer. Pretty much, when I'm relaxed it comes naturally but
if my mind is busy it goes away. I could look at it for hours.
I've even waved my hand in front of my eyes to make sure my eyes were closed because to me, they were wide open! But sure enough, my vision was
actually with my eyes closed.
