In a number of dreams I've actually experienced "death" -- that is to say, I've clearly died. Rather it be from a gun-shot wound, or some other instrument, I always seem to reach the same outcome...
Usually, I will progress into a place of utter "darkness" (I use quotes here for a reason, keep reading). Still quite asleep, still dreaming, just "dead." In this place, I see nothing, feel nothing, nor hear nothing. It is as if my senses themselves have been extracted with my body, leaving my bare consciousness to the void. There is some peace and comfort in this (especially after the first few seconds). The initial pain from the death is quickly replaced by a relaxing "emptiness" and pervading silence. However, a doubt grows in my mind. Is this truly what death is like? Is it so empty and hollow, so lonely...our consciousness forever adrift and isolated, left to reflect only with itself until potentially reborn (should you ascribe to reincarnation)?
There are some beliefs I've discovered that reflect this concept of death. Sheol, the traditional Hebrew belief long before any other ideas arose within that faith, is the idea that the soul passes into an empty void upon death. Even the Greek's concept of the afterlife, in its earliest forms, almost seems to posses some of these qualities. It makes you wonder, if the most ancient ideas, before their altering, were the most correct? Is that what death may truly be like? It's a discomforting thought (a likely reason why these views were later changed in their respective cultures).
Personally, being an agnostic (and maybe that explains my experience), I cannot say I subscribe to easily to an afterlife at all. Yet, I am curious of others have had similar dreams?
I have had several dreams of the like, dying and such. although, as soon as I die, my dream usually ends, and either I awaken, or a new dream begins. Im not exactly sure what to think of it, but my dreams have done some strange things in the past. Im not too concerned about it. Some people believe that if you die in your dreams, youre bound to die soon. well, if that were the case, Id be dead a long time ago. ^^;;
"Wishing on a star that's already burned out..."
It sounds terrifing. I hate the idea of being trapped with just myself and hindsight. Has anyone seen the rubbish Brad Pitt movie 'Meet Joe Black'? Pitt plays an anthropomorphisation of Death come to earth in human form to experience humanity, then at one point he threatens someone with "counting the millenia in a room without doors."
The phrase just stuck in my head I guess but it sounds torturous, you'd always be wondering whether its the only afterlife or if there was a better one you could have got to if you'd been better/different.
We were gods once and will be again.
I have had those dreams but instead of darkness I lift out of my body. I see all of my life rewind and when it ends I wake up. I don't know if it is an accuract portrale of my life but the concept is interesting. Would, after you die, be forced to watch all youv'e done rewind. Then what? A void? Or rebirth? I'm not sure, also I do quegy (wrong spelling) bord readings. All I have really gotten out of the spirits, some older some younger, is that whatever pain they were in was gone and they weren't unhappy just confused why they didn't go here or there. So an interesting question is, Is there the possibility we Never leave the Earth?
Only the free wish to find their destiny, those who are jailed have found it.
Not exactaly sure if my experience or what I type might help ya..
About 2 years ago I had a experience of my own..I stared getting into believeing in reincarnation (something I don't believe in Now.) I found a link on the internet about how to meditate. It had music the whole 9 yards.. It kinda freaked me out cause it was meditating on all these Strange Gods.. I got off the net that night feeling spooked..I spoke to myself saying this is Crazy. I said aloud Lord Jesus Christ what was I before I was born.. It was only what I can describe as a vision.. I was fully awake walking through the house..
What I was shown is this. I was in my own space, I could see I could hear and I could move.. It was like I was a lil me in kind of a dark area..I want to describe this well so u can picture it..
It was Dark like the sky was a grave yard, but not a real grave yard.. I had my own space kinda like a circular rectangle..I stayed at the bottom Floating..I could hear voice but did not know where they came from..When I looked above me I saw a bluish white light..The light brought me much comfort. I knew without this Light I would die. This light feed me..
This I think is the first step of death.. Like this is what happens right after a person dies.. I believe the light is life and darkness is where Satan dwells.. I believe u travel to this light before entering HEAVEN, or you stay in darkness without this comfort before DEATH.
