More than 20 years ago, I dreamt of Heaven and I have lived to tell the tale. The dream is as vivid as it was when I awoke that morning in my parents’ house. I remember coming downstairs to the kitchen to talk with my Mom and I remember telling her the story that I had just been to Heaven in my dream.
I don’t recall how or why I was in Heaven, but I clearly recall what it looked like ~ it was a field of tulips, surrounded by the most brilliant light I’ve ever seen. There was an ethereal haze to the encounter as I was walking on a path similar to the photo above but there seemed to be a fluffy cloud floor instead of dirt. As far as my eye could see, the ground was blanketed with these amazing colorful tulips. Although the light emenated everywhere, I started to walk towards what I believed to be the light’s center, a most magical core of light which beamed out from the end of the path.
The light enveloped me and everything around me. It was as clear as day, but in a warm glow of daylight unlike any I’ve ever experienced here on Earth. It was warm, perfect temperature as I walked (or glided) along the nebulous path. I was completely at peace and not in any hurry. I remember feeling like I was seeing everything all at once without having to turn my head from side to side to see each part of the fields of tulips. I felt love surrounding me. I felt peace within my soul like I’ve never felt before nor since. I felt happiness right to my core, to my soul. It wasn’t that ebullient happiness which gurgles up inside when you are giddy. No, this was a peacefilled happiness which seems to emanate from everywhere all at once, including from me as I felt at one with everyone and everything around me.
I felt there were others on this path with me, but I couldn’t see them nor could I communicate with them. We were just gliding on our own paths of our own makings, but we were connected through this amazing loving embrace which powerfully surrounded us all. I felt like I was indeed love and love was indeed me.
I don’t know how long my dream lasted. I can only tell you that when I awoke, I had yet to arrive at the center of the light. But the peacefulness which surrounded my soul and became my soul is unlike any experience I’ve had in my life. I can still conjure up those feelings when I am quiet and at peace in my life. I have not experienced the dream again. But it is a memory which I hold dearly in my heart, every day of my life.
Have you ever experienced anything like this? Have you been to Heaven?
