My Spiritual Awakening
A Walk in the Garden of Eden
Everything is alive—rocks, trees, water, flowers everything!
I left my house to take a walk on a beautiful spring morning. I had barely got to my mailbox when I was suddenly conscious of another dimension of reality. Although words will never adequately describe this new dimension, I knew with a certainty and clarity that I had never experienced before that everything in our universe was connected and part of the same living energy. Th is experience, which had a surreal quality of timelessness, could have only lasted a few moments since when my normal awareness returned I was still standing in the same spot near the mailbox. I thought, That was fascinating! Since I could not place the experience in my reality, I put it out of my mind and continued my walk. In the days that followed, however, I thought about the experience more and more frequently. A few weeks later, I awoke one morning and knew that something magical had happened. I felt the presence of a divine and heavenly mood………This divine presence was continuous with me for the duration of this magical experience, which lasted almost three months. The following describes the changes in my awareness:
· A feeling of oneness and love with everyone I met; I could sense his or her inner self and real motives and needs, especially the need for love.
· A sense that everything is composed of energy and that even inanimate object had consciousness.
· Awareness there was no random events; that every event and interaction was part of a grand Divine plan.
· My senses—smell, touch, taste, and sight—were intensified.
The most significant change was living in the here and now. I was only vaguely aware of the future or of time passing. I recall an experience watching a spider spinning a web in my backyard. I felt oneness with my brother, the spider, as I sensed all life was precious and sacred. Hey, I know you are thinking this sounds like an acid trip. I can assure you, except for a one-time experiment with mushrooms many years into the future, I have never taken LSD or any other psychedelic drug.
“I started this autobiography over ten years ago. While the basic premise has not changed, I have expanded my knowledge of the soul’s journey, thanks to the work of Michael Newton. In his book, “The Journey of Souls,” he describes in detail how we co-create our lives with help from our guides. He acquired this knowledge by conducting over seven thousand hypnotic regressions of his clients’ between-lives experiences. I believe the consistency of his clients’ experiences and the rigor of his methods will convince any open-minded person of the validity of his work. He meticulously recorded these sessions and by careful analysis found the organization and structure of the between-life experience. I believe his excellent research has no parallel in answering the questions of what happens when we die as well as the issues of reincarnation, karma, spiritual guides, channeling, and so on.”
