Real Psychic Experiences

The Bright White Light


First, a little info about me. I suffer from sleep apnea and nearly every night I wake up not breathing. Nothing's blocked, just the automatic part has stopped for some reason. All I have to do is make myself breathe. After several minutes, everything is fine and I can go back to sleep. I do, however, toss and turn somewhat constantly because I just don't stay comfy in one position for very long. I look at the clock quite often.

There are a few reasons why I believe what happened next was more than just a dream. This just happened 2 days ago. I was dreaming that a female (not sure who she was) and I were walking along a country road. I could see the green fields and trees on each side of the road and the beautiful blue sky. The mood was happy.

All of a sudden, everything changed to sepia tones (brown, tan, black) except for the sky. The entire sky turned pure white and was getting brighter and brighter. The air was filled with the sound of static electricity crackling which got louder and louder.

Scared, I started to run one way and the girl ran the other way. We then both stopped and ran toward each other. She ran into me and she was knocked down into the ditch. The noise and the light were so intense.

That's when I noticed that an even brighter light was shaped like a cylinder around me and that I was being lifted off of my feet. I was terrified. I think the terror was what woke me up.

The moment I woke up, I felt my weight falling back down onto my bed. The intense light took several seconds to slowly fade away. I looked at the clock, it was 6:30 a.m. I laid flat on my back and it took me about a half hour to fall back to sleep. I didn't wake up again until 1:00 in the afternoon. I was still flat on my back. I was very comfortable and felt refreshed. It was the best 6 hours of sleep I've had in a long time.

Does anyone have any idea what I experienced? I would like to hear your opinions. Thanks for reading. Jim

that is so weird
Well let me tell you something
Your dream you had is almost EXACTLY like a dream I had when I was little
The scenery and walking with another girl, and falling into a ditch. Everything... It sounds exactly like mine.
Except for the flashing lights...

You said
"the air was filled with the sound of static electricity crackling which got louder and louder."
That happened to me too, but it wasn't in a dream. It was in real life. Basically I saw bright lights, orbs, that were flashing brightly. And with that, they sounded like static electricity. This happened in the middle of the night, when I woke up. It was pretty frightening. I later found out, the orbs were spirits.

I'm guessing your dream is a symbol of an emotion that you felt in a past life... I don't know.
I just wanted to share with you, that bit of information I thought you should know.

If you don't want to go, you don't have to go, now that you know what's going on. I have said no more than yes. Many more times. Sometimes it's a struggle not to "lift-off" then it gets easier. It's a choice. If you choose to fly, then relax. You will get back. I think you sleep apnea (in part) might be caused by your turmoil and struggle. If you say no, and that's fine, then relax and sleep better.

It sounds to me a little like you are about to take a "trip" which it what those other people call them, an astral voyage, whatever. I don't know if it's alien or just a soul, God thing. I do know, we leave our bodies. That's why I came here two years ago, to figure it out. To me, it feels more like a soul, God thing, but I'm not sure. It's scary at first, the scariest thing I know. Then, it feels almost peaceful, which is scary too. Should it? I wrote about an experience, poorly probably, called What An Astral Voyage Is Like. Perhaps we interpret leaving our bodies and this God thing as alien because we can't really understand and try to put some physical thing to it such as ships and stuff. I don't know. I do know the lifting feeling and the going back in.

I think you now know what you experienced and why. Listen to your instinct of what you think happened.

God Bless

Hey, I also stop breathing and toss and turn. My sleep sucks. This dream sounds like the end of the world. I have dreams that are strange. Like everything is becoming like clear/scambled and its spreading over everything and everyone is freaking out trying to get away, but there is no where to go. That cylinder thing sounds like abduction reports. My mom has dreams of everything being messed up and the river boiling and flowing backwards, horrible. We recently saw on this show that when the new madrid fault " a weird fault line that causes unusualy horrible earth quakes" they were talking about shaking for days, lakes draining, towns flooding, poison gases coming out the ground filling valeys. Even lake steaming and rivers flowing backwards.
My mom was like dazed, she said that's sound just like my dream. Sientist say we are over due for another extreme one. I have herd some other strange ones.
