OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE
It happened yesterday during mediation session ( between 11.30 and 12.30 pm). Including myself there were six of us – Merle, Anne, Yve, Mark, George and Me. I am deliberating giving names as what I am going to describe is unbelievable. So there are six witnesses to the event. I wish I could have out of body experience during meditation. Though I did experience it when I was having a near death experience ( drowning in river ganges in India with my wife over twenty years ago ). Out of the body experiences have been reported by thousands of people when facing extreme trauma, an accident, a heart attack etc. Psychology describes it dissociation of consciousness. I meditate half an hour with rising Sun and half an hour with setting Sun ( whenever I can ) and I do experience “inner witness” or “inner awakening” during meditation but have never experienced my consciousness getting out of my body.
It was George who experienced his consciousness ( call it the soul, or spirit ) flow out out his body, out of the window of the big hall we were meditating, and out to the open skies. When asked how he would describe his experience, he just had no words to do so. He just kept repeating, “ so beautiful “. Truly, there are no words to describe such an experience except with the energy coming out as “ awe” in a sense of “total wonder.” I did not want his mind to interpret this awesome, beautiful experience in words at that time and spoil the state of his inner bliss. But he did blame me for the experience which I accepted with grace and gratitude.
George has been meditating for many years but experienced it only yesterday. That is what happens, spiritual awakening happens in just a moment when it happens. Otherwise it may not happen in a life time or many life times. Blessed are those who go through such a divine experience which transforms their lives forever. I intend to follow up George’s case, interview him next time and bring you his own interpretation. Would even try to post his photo….
It certainly is a life changing experience for me. I truly believe that we are not human beings who go through an occasional spiritual experience. We are basically spiritual beings going through a human experience….
