Perhaps you are longing for an experience of the other side, or maybe you’ve had one already. Perhaps it was quite by accident, or maybe you’ve been yearning for years for confirmation of your highest hopes and dreams. A spiritual experience will likely be the most peaceful feeling you’ve ever had, followed by, if you are like me, complete fear and panic.
When I first saw the light, I became extremely afraid. I felt complete distress. I knew, at a deep level, that I was not living in congruence with my heart, and I could feel that this light saw my soul. I was afraid of being seen. I don’t know what the light was, but I believe it’s all I could see of an angel with my earthly eyes. When it spoke to me, I felt total peace and love, yet again, following my experience, I became full of fear. I knew I wasn’t supposed to have an experience like that. I felt I must be crazy.
It took many years and lots of conversations with trusted folks to help me integrate these experiences and learn that I was safe and okay. I eventually learned that I wasn’t crazy. It was just an awakening to another side of life- something that I hope you have experienced or will experience in the way that is perfect for you.
You are not your body or your mind. You are your soul, and your soul’s connection to God. If you happen to encounter something in this world that reminds you of that, it’s okay to be afraid, but you don’t have to be.
