Mystical Experiencer: Male in mid-sixties
Current location: U.S.A.
Age at time of experience: 58
This was a one-time thing that helped me a great deal. I had been contemplating suicide and this gave me the courage to seek out a hypnotist who specialized in life between lives. She set me up and I felt like I was in the life of a small brown man who had experienced the loss of his family. His grief was mine and I was there at his death. What I learned was how to cope with loss.
After the experience of being someone else, the hypnotist suggested that I meet my guide. What I experienced was a bright white light that surrounded me with love and compassion. I never in my life felt so accepted. The light gave me a message directly to my mind that I should enjoy what I can of my life and areas that would give me joy. Also I was needed by my family in ways I did not comprehend.
This helped me a great deal and I have been able to be the family leader I need to be. The light also revealed that my physical issues were in place to keep me where I am. Time has proved that I am a great help to my family that would have been lost if I had terminated my life. Since this experience I have pursued a spiritual practice, but this was a one-time experience.
