Imagine waking up in a hospital room, disoriented, looking around and having no idea what happened that put you there. Imagine that the only thing you remembered was an experience that knocked the foundation out from under everything you’d been taught to believe about life and death. Then imagine that people thought you had lost your mind because you had amnesia and didn’t remember the accident or where you lived at the time.
The only thing I vividly remembered and wished I could talk about was the experience I had when the real me left this physical plane. That was not a dream like some people like to say. It was not something that happened in my imagination or in my brain. It was an experience that simply can’t be expressed using the words we have available to us.
I left my body, flew through a dark tunnel and entered a world of Love and Light where words were not spoken. They were not needed. There was a “knowing” that we only sometimes vaguely touch on here in the physical. It was a feeling that we do not experience here, one that can’t be described. All of it changed my life.
I was shown things and allowed to understand things by a great being of Light that showed me Absolute Love, Unconditional Love, Divine Love, even while we watched my life review. In it I saw how full of anger I was. My emotions were out of control. I allowed people to push my buttons and allowed myself to feel like a victim. I reacted out of weakness and ignored my strengths.
The details that some people want to hear aren’t real plentiful. I had a car crash at highway speeds. I left my body, flew through a tunnel, emerged and was met by an indescribable being of Light that took on the form of an older man. He seemed like a Supreme Being and I had great reverence for him. He spoke to me without words, showed me my life review, implanted knowledge and understanding and imprinted the words, “Seek Truth and Knowledge.” I felt that I was given a choice to come back, pursue that and learn how to change what I had been shown about myself. When my review ended, I was sent back and remember the uncomfortable sensation of entering my physical body, feeling confined, dense, separated from what felt like “Home.” Then I “came to” days later in the hospital remembering only that experience.
What was downloaded as knowledge and understanding is what I find to be profound. Learning how to put it into words and translate it into practices was the challenge that interested me.
I was shown the importance of healing that anger. I was shown what could be done when you use Love as your weapon instead of anger. It truly is a powerful weapon that can win any battle.
What I’m speaking about goes way beyond poetry and beautiful phrasings about love. When you look beyond words and come to an understanding about the power of your energy, you have discovered a goldmine.
No dream, idea or fantasy created in my imagination could effect me the way that NDE did. The Light, the Love, the understanding I was given, and the long-lasting effect just doesn’t change you overnight the way an experience like that can and often does. An experience like that isn’t something you can be tricked into thinking is real when it isn’t.
My Peace of Success YouTube channel is filled with comments from people who have all of the answers and want all others to believe as they do. Many of them tell me I was tricked by Satan and I need to abandon my evil ways of speaking of God’s Love. They insist on punishment and hell and fearing God. That flat out was not my experience and I have never wavered from what I now believe. We are meant to increase our capacity to love ourselves so we can love others, heal ourselves first, get control of negative emotions so we can contribute a higher vibration and help raise others also. It happens naturally when you feel good about yourself inside.
If not that “You’re wrong, it was Satan” view, here’s another one. Many comments come from those determined to convince people we disappear after our body dies, that there is no afterlife or Creator who gives us life. I just smile these days and feel thankful, knowing that without my NDE experience, I might have ended up thinking that way too.
So over the years, I have fumbled along and attempted to talk about something that really can’t be put into words. I’ve also shared a lot of my experiences that show what is possible when you don’t accept what you’re told as the only possibility.
I believe we’re meant to use our gifts. We can change our circumstances whether it’s for better health or anything we’re faced with in life. We’ve been given a role to play and when we stay “in Love,” we are tapped into a powerful force that has a way of making things work out for the best for all involved. I continually witness that power in my life. That’s why I believe our reason for being here is to bring “heaven” to earth, that heaven is the feeling of Love, a state of being.
