2004 I did an Alpha course where they walked us through
astral travelling. I had a wonderful experience travelling
out of the building, then out of the city and off into
the universe where I saw the clichéd white beach
and a spirit guide dressed as a native Indian girl.
I never really thought much about it as the years went
by. One night about four years later I was alone in
my bed trying to go to sleep. I was very upset because
my son had had another very bad motor bike accident.
He was in constant pain and it was starting to affect
his mental health. I was taking care of him to the best
of my ability but was really feeling the strain as I
have always been a worrier.
I was crying in bed and trying not to let my son hear
me from his room. All at once I knew there was another
presence in the bed. I am usually easily frightened
but I was not at all afraid. Telepathically, this entity,
who I could only describe as an angel without wings,
told me to rest my head on his shoulder. He seemed to
be about seven feet tall and was wearing a long robe.
I didn’t see his face in the dark but I knew it
was a male presence. As soon as I rested my head on
his upper chest the most indescribable feeling of peace,
bliss and unconditional love swept through me. I went
from inconsolable to these wonderful feelings immediately.
The next thing I knew we had astral travelled into the
universe and were standing beside a beautiful red and
orange formation of matter. The angel had me by the
arms and all I could feel was the same unconditional
love and peace. It all seemed to happen in slow motion
but was over in seconds. I remember recalling later
the words of St. Paul when he describes someone’s
visit to heaven: “whether in the body or out of
the body I do not know.” The other phrase from
the Bible which came to me later was “the peace
of God which passes all understanding.”
I have only told my husband, sister and son of this
event. Nobody can understand what it was like or believe
it could happen until they experience it for themselves.
I am 57 years old and very ordinary and normal. I love
the fact that I had this experience and I call on it
when something stressful happens.
