Mystical Experiencer: Female in early sixties
Current location: Australia
Age at time of experience: 62
I have had several experiences where I clearly heard sounds such as the flute, buzzing bees, drums, other sounds from nature. These were very clear and although they seemed to be in the room with me, they also seemed to be coming from a distance. These happened over a one or two year period.
However, the mystical experience that was the most powerful for me, was recently at age 62, when I had the health issue of a frozen shoulder. I was in much pain (had not taken pain killers) and was in a state of what felt like an alteration of consciousness, similar to the state before being fully awake after a night's sleep. Suddenly, a golden light appeared near my heart followed by what seemed like a full body orgasm that was non-sexual. Like waves of bliss.
Unfortunately, out of fear that something drastic was going to happen, I stopped the experience and resumed my normal consciousness. At first, I thought I may have imagined or dreamed it, but no, it felt very real. A truly wonderful experience.
