I want to understand how the collective consciousness relates to my divine purpose.
I am asking this because of a profound experience I had during a Reiki session. When the Reiki practitioner put her hands over my body, I saw translucent hands covering hers.
The next moment I saw a group of bright, beautiful beings full of Love. I sensed that the group was communicating their thoughts and feelings with me, but one of them led the wordless communication. They told me I was greatly loved.
During this experience I was out of my body and I looked the same way they did, except that they contained more light than I did. At that moment I understood that we are made of the same essence as they are.
They indicated that I was here for a purpose. They did not tell me what that was, and I did not feel a need to ask. They explained that they were always with me in this human experience that can at times be quite difficult.
I felt that I was one with them, but at the same time I did not lose the sense of my separateness as a human being. I felt a deep sense of peace. Before they let, they told me ‘you are a special person’. That peace stayed with me for a while, but then faded. However, the knowledge stayed.
I don’t know whether they were angels, but I like to think of them as the essence of Love.
I want to understand the experience I had. Any thoughts?
I think of myself as a kind, decent person from a good family. I was brought up to believe in a God of love and was involved with the church when I was a kid. My mother is a devout Christian and a beautiful person.
I know many people whom, in my opinion, don't care about God or religion but they seem to have their own way and get whatever they want. It seems that these people have such an easy life.
About ten years ago this so-called loving God took great pleasure in ripping my family to pieces. My father contracted a chronic illness which left him an angry, nasty man needing constant care.
My mother became his full-time nurse against her will and had to give up all her freedom. My dad aims all his frustration at me, and my brother tries in vain to be a peace-maker.
As if that was not enough, God then decided
