My Name is phil, and a series of seemingly coincidental things happening to me and a very weird experience. I can without a doubt say, I have had a spiritual, out-of-body-experience.
I'm 24 years old, and a programmer so I travel sometimes. It was a Friday night and I couldn't sleep. This is not unusual for me. I got up and watched some tv until about 2:30 A.M. I tried sleeping again. Though indeed I had drifted off to sleep, but this was different.
I felt really awake, but I knew my body was asleep. I could hear myself breathing, nearly snoring. This sounded very industrial, but I could control it if I wanted to. I thought it was strange, then it got stranger. My mind was away from my body. I knew my soul had for some reason left my body. I knew this was a significant moment in my life. I was in space. All I could see was stars.
Other people were there. I could not see them, but I could hear their thoughts. I realised that the people around me were my family members who had passed. I was connected to them, in a way that is hard to describe in words. My thoughts that I have control of were sort of hijacked. I was communicating with other beings via thought and telecommunication. Their thoughts were in my head, as if my own thoughts.
This was when I started to freak out. I knew this was really strange. I began to feel at ease, peaceful. The thoughts continued coming to me. Remember that old saying, "Be careful what you wish for"? Well I suddenly remembered a few weeks before when I had asked for God to be part of my life, to give me a sign. If this wasn't a sign, I don't know what was. From remembering this in the state my mind/soul was in, I it happen, then whatever/whoever this was show me what it had to show me.
Now this is where it starts to get a little strange and makes me sound like I'm crazier than I already sound, but bear with me. While I was in this state, I was shown everything. I had the answer to every question I could think of. I was connected to everything. Everything in this place was connected, via this sort of telecommunication.
I was shown what the human body is. What its purpose is for. As for the meaning of life, its far more complex than that. I know our bodies are to house the soul, it was shown to me. I know that whatever this was, it wants us to know about it. I know that not all people can pick up on this because we only use a small fraction of our brains, but what's the rest for? The bodies purpose it to enprison the soul, plain and simple.
While I was being shown this, I had the sudden urge to go to the toilet. I got up out of bed, and went into the toilet and turned the light on. At this point I opened my eyes (It was dark, and knew the way around my room, so I kept my eyes shut on the way - plus this I was meant to see.) As I opened my eyes, my mind/soul came back into my body. Its like it was rebooting. My vision was all blury but not like sleep. It was like looking into binoculars backwards. Then it slowly came back to normal.
At this point I thought it was over. I had to pee real bad, so I did my business while crazy thoughts ran though my head. I finished up, washed my hands and went back to bed. As soon as I closed my eyes, my soul was back to this plane again.
Now I mentioned I had the answer to any question I could possibly ask while in this state. Meaning that right now, I can only remember the feeling of complete knowledge, but my human mind hasn't retained it. I have only retained the information that I was meant to.
I remember freaking out a lot and asking to wake up and not remember this happening to me. Thinking, "What is the point of living if I know all this!". I remember opening my eyes after being in the state for ages. At this point I wanted it to stop, but I obviously had not gotten the whole message yet.
I remember seeing dark iimages hovering above me while my eyes were open. I remember the time being 4:30 A.M.
This went on for another hour. I relaxed again and went with it, putting my faith in the lord.
I came out of it knowing family was the key. Everything in life. I thanked god for showing this to me.
I layed awake thinking about it after all seemed normal again. Still freaked out.
My body was exhausted, it had not been a dream. I was completely drained.
I slept from 630AM to 830AM.
The phone rang and my girlfriend answered it. My mother. I'll call her back. I had my breakfast and thought about my experience.
I rang mum back. She had bad news. Her cancer had came back.
I was floored.
The next day a book found me. "The MOST important book on the planet" it was called. It was a PDF that I stumbled across while downloading movies online. It described pretty much what had happened to me. I was meant to find this book, I was meant to have that experience, and I was meant to find this website and leave this experience.
I look forward to comments. Am I crazy?
