It was in July of this year (2008) that I was sleeping in a guest room (purportedly active with psychic activity) at a turn of the century Bed and Breakfast rooming house in Juneau, Alaska.
Suddenly, I felt something like a cat or dog jump on the bed. I looked around the bed and saw nothing, but really did not pay much attention to it as there were dogs and cats on the premises. Then I felt a strange unearthly sensation as something entered my body. It was "electric". For a brief few seconds I felt a totally overpowering buzzing energy and exhilarating sensation comparable to a hallucinogenic drug but much more intense. It encompassed all of my known senses. I felt strangely apprehensive, euphoric, and joyous at the same time.
I realized this was something significant and had never experienced anything even approaching the spiritual before. Then almost as quickly as it started, it jumped out, up and away from me like a playful puppy.
I know this was real and not something imagined or dreamed. The sensation was too overpowering to have not been real. I now attribute it to a pet dog of ours, Sherlock, that had recently and sadly been put to sleep in my absence. I truly believe he was saying goodbye to me and wanted me to know this life is temporal and a new one awaits.
