“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” – Albert Einstein

In an instant, I was no longer here. And by “here”… I’m referring to our common perception of physical reality and the space we occupy within it. The reality we claim to dominate with our advanced physical senses.
The only way I know how to describe the reality I entered is by using terms we can all associate with. So, I’ll do my best.
If you were to close your eyes, place a light bulb close to the front of your face, and just take in what you observed… it would look similar. Remove all sound around you and replace it with a deep oscillating vibrational tone… it would sound similar. I didn’t feel anything physically, and I don’t remember any particular smells. But, emotionally, I can still remember a great feeling of openness and freedom. Free to roam, yet guided as needed.
And while I did perceive a number of guides while in this “altered’ state, it’s incredibly difficult to describe how they appeared. They were simply with me. And it didn’t require our common interactions of speech or body language to communicate. It was as if my heart had a mind of its own… and it was able to communicate more effectively through pure emotional interaction.
Perhaps the early stages of falling in love resembles the feelings. Remember early on in the relationship when your heart was so blasted open to the other person that you could literally predict their actions? You even knew what they were thinking on occasion. At times, the interactions felt magical and it required little to no effort to be perfectly content in the company of the other person. It’s kind of like that. But, without the whole “hump like rabbits” part. You’re in sync with another being and the interaction happens naturally… with and without effort at the same time. “Seamless flow” is probably a fair way to describe the experience.
So, there I was, in this bright vibrational space. And, within its seemingly infinite bounds, I could travel freely. As I went through it, a number of people seemed to show up. I’d later go on to have these individuals described as guides. Among them, I had a great sense of connection with Einstein. It was as if he brought me through portions of his work, but also allowed me access to his emotional stance on what he accomplished. Then, another figure visited and brought me through all sorts of advanced geometries. Another, theology. Another, symbolism and linguistics. Talk about information overload.
It all happened so quickly that it was impossible to process everything. It was as if a lifetime (or more) of education and exposure was flashing in front of me… on topics that I had never really taken an interest in. In school, I was never really interested in topics related to science. So, most of what I observed seemed foreign and strange… but, in a another way, it all kind of made sense.
From an experiential standpoint, it didn’t feel like time was passing. But, actions were occurring. Kind of a timeless place that lacked boundaries and was filled with information, story, history, memories, and everything else we consider to be learned or experienced. And there was a lot to take in…
Out of nowhere, I heard two knocks on the right-side passenger window of the Tahoe. I came back to present reality and quickly looked to my right to see who was there. No one appeared within my view. I turned to the radio and the clock read exactly 4:44am. My angel numbers had returned again. Perhaps to remind me that I wasn’t alone and reassure me that I wasn’t losing my mind.
I sat back in the driver’s seat and attempted to process what I had just gone through. It felt as if I was suddenly existing in two different plains of reality. My brain and heart were tied into a realm of unspeakable depth and scope… yet my body and general physical existence was firmly planted in the front seat of my vehicle.
I stepped out of the Tahoe, stretched, and looked up at the night’s sky. I remember thinking, “Wow… there really is something beyond this world that few ever recognize as possible. There really
are existential realities that we chalk up to speculation and hypothesis.” The thoughts and reflections kept streaming through my conscious mind, but in the simplest of terms, I can just say that I was left in awe. Absolute, total, and complete awe of what I had just experienced.
Looking Forward, Michael
