What if we knew that fear has no place in our lives? What if your life is actually all about knowing how loved you are for who you are and what you bring? How would that change how you live your life?
People who have returned from a near death experience tell us about the overwhelming feeling of being loved completely and without judgement. They speak of a realm beyond which there is no fear, only love. These people return describing how they’ve been awakened into love because the truth is we are all loved unconditionally.
In this realm where love is complete, anything is possible and we’ve done and been many possible things!
Body of love
In September 2010 in the early hours, I had what in spiritual terms is an awakening, similar to a near death experience. I was doing my yoga practice when it occurred. In a heartbeat, I was outside of my body, able to see myself sitting on my yoga mat and observing everything from a very different viewpoint. Eventually, I wondered how I might return to my body, and the immediate response was “breathe”.
And I then poured back into my body, filling up with golden light and feeling fully consumed by love – complete love, bliss and peace. My forehead exploded into a throbbing violet light surrounded by gold and in its centre, a piercing golden beam out into nothingness. My physical body was now home to divine love – complete bliss and peace – our birthright.
That event changed everything. I understood the world around me differently. I understood my interior world differently. I loved everyone and everything. I didn’t feel separate, but entirely connected to everyone and everything. I was in awe of everything and everything was pulsating with a diaphanous glow, fully alive and vibrant. My body was bursting with love, I was electrified by it, and could feel it like a blanket around my body.
I’d cry because I was so filled up with love, utterly beautiful. And I recall one morning sitting quietly in my house crying with love and in my mind saying repeatedly, “I love you, thank you for loving me”. When I returned to bed for a short sleep before starting the day, I became filled up with a rush of energy that propelled me out of my third eye into a wormhole. I travelled to another dimension. On arrival, I was greeted with the word LOVE forming through an expansive space of emerald light and I cried (you can cry in other dimensions too!).
My mind became flooded with creative responses to the world. I’d wake to choreographed dance routines playing like a movie in my mind and I’d dance it! Music came flooding in. Poetry. Words and scenes. My childhood dreams of living a creative life were literally playing like a film in my mind and I’d recreate them.
Eventually, I wrote words and scenes, music and poetry into theatre scripts and the first theatre play I ever wrote was shortlisted for best play in New Zealand. Last week I had a dream that showed me the subject of my next theatre script, even the name of the main character.
Following our calling
People who have returned from near death experiences describe being able to view their lives like a film script played out before them. They could see their current life and, at the same time, other lives they’ve lived. In the case of one woman, she could see that if she made the choice to return to her body her cancer would rapidly heal. She could see herself before many thousands of people talking about love (and she is doing just that). That was her calling.
Following the film scripts of creative activities that played and continue to play through my mind, I’m now a writer. It is my calling. And what I write about and how the output of my writing is delivered into the world is to bring more love into the world.
Creativity. Mental Wellbeing. Spiritual. Women’s Empowerment.
