People tend to get visions through dreaming, during meditations or even through waking hour. These are not hallucinations as many skeptics think otherwise. When an individual becomes aware, recognizes its soul and its journey, it starts getting visions, which acts like a guidance to help the journey through the oceans of samsaras.
One of my first vision was when I went total blank and experienced immense bliss just for a moment or samay, during my college lecture. Later, I used to see a lot of things during meditations and even while dreaming. However, one fine day, while going through a magazine I saw a picture of an ancient temple and instantly the world around me stopped for a while and I was like transported to that very place where I had seen the temple. It was like being there on the spot and saw things happening as if I was invisible in that place, where I could see but no one else could. After searching a lot on the web, I came to the conclusion that the temple was situated at Hale bid. Not long after that I underwent my first professional past life regression. An experience that not only gave me the answer to the vision but also opened up the doors between the consciousness and unconsciousness of my mind and soul.
After which like the floodgate that opened up, I would frequently see things during my meditations. However, after my soul mate expired just two months ago, my grief suddenly made me see things that I never seen before. During one early morning during waking hours, I saw a tunnel opening up and a bright light flooding through. The lights were soothing and beckoning to me. But it started to shut off and I was like pleading, no no, don’t shut off.
This morning, about several days from the last episode. Again in the morning hours, just before the sunrise, while standing at the window, thinking and grieving for my lost love, I saw the sun rays streaking across the landscape right in front of my eyes. The golden bright rays were not falling over the city, but a landscape I had never seen before. I was standing on a higher level at a vantage point and I saw the golden sun rays falling over a different city, surrounded by lakes and rivers and mountains in the distance. The city was in a circular fashion and nothing remotely representing anything on Earth. I had a 270 degree view of the city and it was out of this world. I felt at ease and was awed with the scene I had just seen. The entire vision lasted momentarily, but it was enough for me to recognize that it could have been the famed citadel mentioned in the ancient Jain books as Mahavideha Kshetra. I had a fleeting glimpse of the city, but it was enough for me to brood over it the entire day. It seemed this city is just around the corner on another dimension. Physically, it may not be possible for a body to cross over, but the soul can.
Whenever, the body dies off, the soul crosses over to another dimension and because it has shed the clothing, it can remember everything. Likewise, when the same soul re-enters back to the physical world in another body, it takes on extra clothing that hides the memory of the other side. Hence, a normal soul is incapable of remembering its own past lives or what happens thereafter. There are exceptions in terms of those who have come back on Earth plane with lesser clothing or is able to shed the extra burden on Earth itself, they start remembering things, if not completely at the initial stages. Visions are part of this very make-up that allows a soul not only to see the universe in its entirety but understand it as well, bit by bit.
Science has not even gone beyond seeing the limited light refraction and hence the rest remains in the dark. But what’s not visible does not mean it does not exist. It is like burning a match stick in the dark huge cave, wherein only a tiny part of the cave is visible where the light shines. I had once seen the entire universe, during my meditation, with daylight in the background and not as dark as we see each night on Earth. None of my visions are hallucinations. They are what Earthly science cannot explains because it is still in the infancy stage. They are trailers of the real thing. Visions that bring peace to you is different from nightmares.
We can actually access the dimensions if we want to. All it takes is a key to unlock its method. The key here is actually a thought process that unlocks the portal, but once open, they more or less remain open. Souls residing on higher dimensions can travel anywhere, anytime. It is the Earthly beings who are restricted due to the presence of the body that acts like a prison cell, wherein our rib cage acts as the bars of the prison. As human our aim is not the body or its survival. It is to be set free from the body, maybe after completing our task. Our Earthly time is actually our punishment of sort and our true home lies elsewhere. All souls are bound by desires and they exist everywhere, even on higher dimensions. The only difference is that the levels and purpose of desires changes. The only place the soul is truly free from everything is the final resting abode of ‘Siddha Sila’.
If you as a reader could even see small bit of the beautiful visions, like the way I did, you too will want to be set free. By remaining on Earth due to ignorance, we are actually binding more karmic dirt than discarding them. Thereby increasing our bondage. As soon as we feel our purpose is over, or our jail time is over, we should make a move to cross over the main gates to be free at last and not linger back due to worldly pressures.
