WOW!!! Those are alll really mad, strange too that lots of them involve incidents in cars, maybe we use some more condusive parts of the brain when we are dealing with cars, and some how are more able to pick up on things. Sometimes, but only sometimes, i can actually feel different parts of my brain working when doing different tasks....or, i "think" i can feel, he he, its just a matter of perception i guess. I LOVE the forest one Orange Blossom, that sounded like it must have felt REALLY magical!
Which experience shall i put....hmmm, this is quite an early one, ok, this is what i percieved....
I was about between 5 and 7 yrs old. I woke up in the middle of the night and went to turn my light on, it had a dangly string beside my bed, which for some reason i had once tied a plastic toy soldier to, which i always found funny even at that age he he. anyways, i went to turn the light on but before i did, a light appeared in the corner of the room adjacent to me, my older sister appeared in her nighty, the image is still vivid now...
~what happens next is gona sound soooo corny, but this is nO joke, it actually happened (i saw this) the way i tell it!~
...She held out her arm and reached out to me, pointing, it was quite a smooth and wispy movement and she said, "gO back tooo BEEEeeed" in a different sort of stereotypically drifty haunting echoey voice.
I let out a sudden shreak with shock and fright, I lept out of my bed and ran in terror to the hall in a flash!
Now, the hall was a bit of a corridor and i had always been a little frightened of some of the things that i believed to occupy the dark. So my first stop was the light switch so i could see my Dads bedroom door at the other end which always seemed like it was seperated from ours by an abyss of monster ridden blackness.
The light switch was outside my brothers bedroom half way across and my sisters bedroom was directly next to mine at the other end. So, i dashed to the light switch and went to turn it on, but the same fuzzy light had already appeared outside my fathers bedroom. It was this apparation of my sister yet again. She held out her hand a second time, and softly bellowed* "gOO back too BEEEeed!" in a voice about a tone and a half higher than the last one.
This was absolutely TERRIFYING! my safety net, my protector was unreachable, my path had been blocked, what could i do now???
You might have thought that i would have gone into my brothers room and woken him up seeing as he was right next to where i was standing but no i didnt.
I IMMEDIATELY span round and darted straight for my sisters room where i burst in ina manic panic and shook her awake in tears, crying saying "I saw you, i saw you, you were out thereee" of course it took a few minutes for her to understand what i was refering too.
This whole experience was blamed on my diabetes EVEN though when they tested my blood sugers they actually came up normal, i remember the confusion and then the "oh well" attitude to bring a veil down over the traumer.
My attitude towards it was always that it was a "weird" experience that i cannot explain...up until i lived with a friend called Brahm in my late teens. When i told the story to him, he was silent for a few seconds (felt like minutes) before exclaiming "do you not REAlise what happened?" in a quite stern but calm voice.
"You took your sister back to her body!" he said "What you were seeing was probably an astral projection".
This thought had never even crossed my mind before. It was a random topic of conversation that had led me to tell him the story. We then conspired the idea that when she said go back to bed, she was actually refering to going back to her bed but maybe needed me to take her there.
At the time i played along with this idea, mysteries are always nice and they can give you a sence of self importance. But then with Brahm, and even now in my mind i can only really accept it as a "weird" experience with no definative explanation...
Thats what i saw
Nice topic Constantine
*the intonation of a bellow but quiet and soft sounding.
