  2. Happy to be your first responder Jane.....as per other posts there have been many experiences this lifetime so lets go back to the first about 62 years ago .
    My first memory I was a gleefully happy little boy

    Then my second memory---
    I was outside my body looking at my frozen little 2 1/2 year old self . Yes this new house was cold but that wasn't the cause...I was frozen with fear having lost my home and my language . We had moved out of my warm French mother's parent's house in Sydney where I was born , to my Australian father's big cold house . I couldn't speak a word of English which upset Nana , so French was forbidden . Mum and I and my little sister only moved about 6-7 miles but it may as well have been across the galaxy . You see Nana was a stranger and I rarely saw Meme and Pepe again .
    My father had never spoken to because I wasn't a girl.....I was the first born of my generation to both families .

    My third memory I was 5 , begging my mother not to make me go inside the gate for first day of school . To this day I don't remember anything inside school fence til 5th class --- no classrooms , playgrounds , teachers , fellow pupils nothing ....5 year abyss . So I had learnt the human art of self-protection very well ...shut it out . The one watching the little boy was carrying me through the trauma .

    Then we uprooted and moved far away and it became a whole new challenge....yes I had been coming out of the fear and just starting to feel ok .

    to be continued...hope this posts

    I might've shared this already but I'm not sure. It was indirectly precipitated by cannabis use.

    So minutes after the inhalation of cannabis smoke, I started pacing back and forth (like I usually do), thinking about a girl I've always been obsessed with. Eventually I seemed to have received a vision of a male having rough and mean intercourse with her, commanding her to say his name during. This vision caused me enough grief that I had to sit down in a chair and I believe at that moment my ego-mind actually stopped/surrendered. I felt a very strong energy in my brain that scared me at first but I soon realized that it was perfect euphoric bliss! I let it just happen for 10 seconds or so, smiling very hard with tears running down my face, but I suppose my ego-mind came back shaking my head "no" and feeling I was unworthy of the bliss. I feel that I received a message before rejecting the bliss, to the effect of, I am that bliss, or I am God, or I am directly connected to that Bliss of God at all times, like a net that will catch me when I fall.

    This happened around October 2011, but I think I've still failed to integrate it at this point in my life. :(

    C. S. Lewis (you may have heard of him, a well known Christian author) was an atheist for many years but converted to Christianity after an experience very much like this one. The precipitating circumstances were different, but he describes having been overcome with a sense of otherworldly joy, which he knew must be the presence of God, or some sort of spiritual experience, at least. I have heard other accounts along these lines, and I think it may not be so unusual for someone to have a spiritual awakening as a result of such an experience.

    From your other writings, I would agree that you have not yet fully integrated this into your life. But you are still working on it, and you will perhaps work on it as long as you are here on Earth. This is not a "failure" and you are not "unworthy."

    When I have a longer post in mind, I find it helps to write the post in Word, or whatever word processing software is available. That way I can save, stop and start, and edit until I am satisfied. Then I copy/paste the text into a message on the forum.

    This has the advantage of giving me a backup copy of my post, should I ever want it for any reason, but more importantly it avoids any timeout problems, or the thing my laptop does where I backspace and instead it highlights and deletes a whole paragraph before I know what happened.

    My first experience that has made me a believer in an afterlife/reincarnation, is I can remember as a baby thinking "I must remember to tell my Mother what I know" It was exciting information I could not wait to tell her. It was before I could talk, I would constantly say to myself "don't forget, don't forget" But I did forget what it was. But I think it was about her as a little girl when her Mother died when she was 3 years old. I only have one picture of my biological grandmother, on her wedding day and I have a sense I might have been her.

    I didn't share my first mystical experience for 35 years, but once my mother had a similar experience I realized I wasn't weird after all and I began to tell it to everyone!

    When I was eight years old I woke up in darkness and realized there is no God. And I was terrified! In the midst of my terror there was a brilliant flash of white light in the room, like burning magnesium - but it didn't affect my eyes. A young male voice said, "You wouldn't know what it is to have me unless you know what it is to be without me. I will never leave you again." (Eventually I concluded that this was my spirit guide - and he spoke to me from a similar flash of light again when I was twenty.)

    From that day on I always have known that I was eternally safe, that this world was illusory, and that there had to be a whole lot of something behind the curtain! I have spent more than half a century trying to understand what it was, and eventually I did figure it out, but it took awhile. As a child, I assumed that an experience of light must be a common event since it had happened to me, but I have come to think that such experiences happen to no more than maybe 2-3% of the population. There are some reported in the Bible, though - Moses with his burning bush that talks and is not consumed; Paul's encounter with Jesus on the road that resulted in his conversion. I have never met anyone who had a similar experience and was not rocked and irrevocably altered by it.
