Once in a while a wonderful experience happens when I am out in the astral at night. These experiences are in full consciousness, in all details. The other night I visited several planets somewhere in the cosmos. I don’t remember all of them, but one of them has a purple hazy sky, very serene and with a calm atmosphere. The sun was shining through the haze with an orange color.
Another planet had some primitive life on it, some small animals and plants. Nothing special, but the surface was well covered by them.
The next planet was quite an experience, with all my senses. I was flying quite fast over a flat and rather barren landscape, sandy and rocky outcrops, and rocks strewn around.
The sun was a white dwarf. Although the sun emitted intense radiation, the surface was of a moderate temperature. When I reached the shoreline of an ocean, I noticed two things. At the very edge of land and water I briefly noticed a stretch of a rock wall. It was clearly artificial and made by somebody in the past, although I hadn’t seen any other ruins. The wall was made of rectangular cut stones and it was only a few courses high. The second thing was the rather flat area where the ocean touched land, resulting in many pools of water which were encircled by small rocks, creating the appearance of many circles of stones, lying in the shallow water.
Then I flew over the ocean itself, and I wasn’t prepared for what came next. I was flying rather fast, just over the water surface, and was looking down at the pools of water, so I didn’t see it coming. It is a bit difficult to explain because it is a phenomenon not known on Earth. I was flying approximately a couple of meters above the surface, and was suddenly engulfed in a strong and chaotic upward moving water waves. These were not solid waves though. More like a mass of droplets.
The intense radiation from the white dwarf was agitating the surface of the water so much that the water, by way of speaking, was violently boiling and spraying the water and water vapor straight upwards, and the water would condense and fall down again. It was not boiling as we understand it, and the temperature was not hot. It was quite something to be in the middle of a constant upward dense spray over the entire surface of the water. Although I was surprised by it, it was very exhilarating. I was experiencing this new phenomenon with all my senses, and I was elated. Words don’t do it justice, you just have to be there.
I sure have to remember this after I leave behind the physical body, so I can visit that place again. For the reader: remember that there are many places in the universe worth visiting.
The last planet was quite different. When I arrived it was almost evening, or maybe there was just less light on that planet. There were buildings and people living there. It is very difficult to explain as it was quite a visual experience. So the following is an abbreviated version. I flew directly to a second floor window of a corner room of a much larger house. The windows were kind of small with several square panes in one window. I entered through the window, and as I was in the spirit, I assumed they could not see me. They sure did not notice me. The room was a kitchen. There were approx. eight people around the table. They were human but of another kind, or race, than we know of on Earth. They were all less tall than ordinary humans. They spoke a language like we do, but it was quite different from any earthy language. They also spoke much faster than we do. I concentrated on the words and sentences, which I could hear very clearly, word by word, in order to get some sense about what they were talking, but I could not keep up with their talking speed. It was just too tiresome. They left the room. I got the impression that there was one middle-aged woman who was the owner of the house, with husband and children, and the rest were guests. They stood up and the woman led her guests through the many rooms of the house. I noticed the entire house was very luxuriously decorated. Every piece of furniture was ornately sculpted, the walls were pieces of art, etc. As I was walking with the group, and had given up on listening to their language, I was looking around to all that art. I could see all of it in detail and color, and was overwhelmed by it. We went through more rooms, and it started to dawn on me that this was not just a house, but a large mansion, and probably one of the richest houses on this planet. There were more guests in the mansion who were at other places/rooms. We went through two more dining rooms who were much more spacial and luxurious than the first one I had entered. They were both connected with their own large kitchen area. They were clearly designed to receive a large group of guests. There was a bathroom, of which the floor was also artistically created, and the walls had a three-dimensional look because of artistically created cut-outs in the outer layer. Then we went outside on a raised wooden platform. Below us was a small pond with some chunks of floating ice, as apparently it was freezing cold outside. Then I noticed that it was actually a slow running stream that was running alongside a part of the mansion. There were other guests at the other side of the water, standing around and talking. They were formerly dressed and had drinks in their hand, and they were having a good time.
Then, of course, my soul was pulled back into the body…time to wake up.
Yes, Shakespeare knew it when he said:
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
