Anyone blessed by this?
"...And then I entered into what I can best describe as a trance, or a dream-state. At first things were vague, hazy. I was unable to discern where I was or what was happening. I began to see figures move towards me, slowly taking shape. My first reaction was fear, then as they drew closer, a sort of calm settled over me. I realized there were three beings total; one a darker (and for lack of a better description) twisted, tormented-type being. Its shape was that of an earthly body, but (and often words fail to fully describe) still somehow having an etheral quality about it. The other Being was a peaceful one. It radiated what I can best describe as love, yet exuded an air of authority somehow; still gentle, but clearly One to behold, "look upon". As the experience became clearer, my focus came upon the third being. To my astonishment, it seemed strangely familiar, and after a few seconds (time was both slowed down, yet sped up in this dream state) I recognized the third figure as a sort of alternate spirit version of myself.
The radiating Being began the conversation. I say conversation, but it was really an interaction of some deepness of the soul, an exchange of thoughts. No actual words were spoken, yet I clearly "heard", more so realized, I was being brought into a "conversation" that had already been in progress. The radiating Being explained to me that I was to somehow assist the dark being. My immediate thoughts were "I don't know how, I'm not qualified". Instantly it seemed the radiating Being knew my thoughts, and I could feel His compassion for my perceived inadequacy. He began to transfer something I could feel; a warmth rose up within me, and along with it, a confidence (this is a poor word for what transpired) and I suddenly felt a love, not only in me, but suddenly around me, yet pulsating in every fiber of my being and in and upon everything I perceived. The being who just moments earlier had appeared dark and "separated" to me, now appeared translucent, and had its own "glow" about it that I could now see and recognize as the Light in all of us. It was with this newly given vision that I began to minister to my fellow sojourner. Words of encouragement, consolation, and instruction began to flow from me. I found thoughts coming out of me that I didn't know were there - even things I would have argued against in the past. I shared with the being (and in the process, with myself) that in Jesus' death and resurrection, an example had been given that we too must die and rise again for our ultimate salvation ("work out your own salvation with respect). I realized (and shared) that this was a spiritual picture, a metaphor, of how not only in this life, but in the life to come, we will be brought through many stages until we finally reach what other (so-called apostate) religions call things like Nirvana, Utopia, or Freud called self-actualization. Many in the Christian religion call it "getting saved". Astonishingly, against much of my lifelong religious training, the traditions I'd held so dear, it was revealed to and through me, that through His example, guidance, and the intervention of others in the spirit world, we will finally make the decisions and attain the necessary level of growth, to where we're finally re-born and arrive at the place of accepting the Perfection that has always been present within us. Jesus lights every man!. As I shared, I continued to see a metamorphosis slowing occurring right before my (spiritual) eyes. There is more to tell, but at this point I will say that I realized, I was "born for such a time as this"... Well, I made it up.
