Many years ago I had an experience that still leaves me a bit baffled when I think of it. This happened in wide-awake physical reality. This was not an obe or ap but I think it is related so want to see if I can get your thoughts because I am still not sure what or more why it happened. I had gone to the library and picked out several books (I love to read). One of the books was by a woman and she was talking about light bridges and all sorts of other stuff. Well I tend to not doubt the possibility of anything seeing as how I have personally had so many sorts of crazy experiences. But I mostly had no idea what she was talking about in the book but was finding it interesting and entertaining. Reading along, minding my own business, not thinking, I read the next few lines and got hit by a wave of... something, energy, something other. Of course NOW I sort of understand this, then I didn't. A massive wave of white light/energy burst through my chest and blasted out traveling all over the place. Now I was totally awake, physical and didn't see this physically with my eyes. But I did see it, that light traveled the entire globe branching off and racing away to parts unknown. Later that night, after everyone else had retired I decided to sit up a while. I sat on the sofa and my head opened up and that white light blasted its way through, into, the top of my head and with it it brought the faces of so many people. Real people from all corners of the globe. This went on and on for what seemed like ever but was probably only a few minutes. It was an amazing experience and terrifying. I understood all those people had stories, all those faces were so real and so many of them were unlike any faces I had ever seen before but all human. I'm still at a loss as to what happened. I am grateful for the experience and wish I hadn't wimped out ending it rather dramatically because I didn't think I could hold anymore information. I thought I would burst. Thanks for any thoughts you'd like to share and for taking time to read this.
