It’s not the body, it’s the consciousness, the self
When we live our lives normally, we tend to think that our bodies are our own.
In reality, however, this is not the case, the consciousness is itself.
Consciousness, also referred to as a thinking energy body, is something you are thinking about.
That’s your true self, not your body thinking or thinking about it.
A golden glowing ball that appeared in the night
It’s all about personal experience. This was before I quit my job in my late twenties and moved to a new land far away.
It was just after Obon in the summer, and I was living at my parents’ house at the time, lying on the futon at night in my room, which I had been using for a long time. Then I saw a few golden glowing balls at my feet.
It was a strange ball of light, one large ball of light and a few smaller balls of light lying around it, hovering at my feet.
It’s not like I could talk to them, but I felt some warmth from that ball of light and felt like I was being watched over.
At that time, moving to a distant place did not mean that a new job had been decided at that place, nor did I have any acquaintances in that area.
So, it’s true that I was very anxious and wondered if I could really make it.
At the time, I wanted to be a writer, so I was writing novels and poetry. Because of this, I decided to leave my parents’ home and try to write my work in a new place, and I decided to quit my company and move.
Nevertheless, I kept wondering if I could really make it. However, when I saw the ball of light that appeared that night, I would say that I was relieved, or actually relieved.
Because I could clearly feel that I was being watched over by that golden glowing ball, and I felt that I was being encouraged and told that it was going to be okay. It was such a warmth that made me think that this is what the thought of love says.
I’m out of the flesh
How do you think I would have viewed that ball of light?
It was not in the eyes of my own flesh. There is a self that is out of the flesh, and that self is seeing the ball of light.
You might think that I was dreaming, but that’s not the case, it’s just me apart from the physical body, the so-called spirit body. There is a part of the soul that dwells in our bodies, and we call it a spirit body, but I saw it with the eyes of that spirit body.
It is a state where the spirit body is outside your physical body and you are looking at the ball of light from there.
A short time later, the spirit body that had slipped out entered towards the physical body.
It’s like being sucked into a vacuum cleaner, if you will, so to speak, and being drawn in and into the body.
As I entered my body, I realized with a gasp, the ball of light that I had been seeing earlier was no longer visible at all.
At the time, I had no idea what that meant. However, since there was a presence watching over me for some reason, I was able to go to a new place with a sense of security, which was very calming.
The soul in the body is its true self
After experiencing this so-called astral projection, I realized that human beings are not all about the body, but what is inside the body is our true selves.
It is what is called the soul, which is consciousness, which is the energy body. That’s what I’m supposed to be.
That soul consciousness is uninterrupted. Consciousness does not change when you leave the body or return to the body.
The only difference is that what you see when you’re out of the body, you don’t see when you’re back in the body.
The soul is not visible to the eyes of the body. The ball of light that I saw was also invisible to the eyes of the flesh. But when you leave the body, you see it.
This isn’t just me, it’s something that every human being can see once they reach the end of their lifespan and leave the physical body.
People don’t die, they stay conscious
People live in their bodies and live for decades. However, even after death, a person does not die, but continues to live on by shedding his or her physical body with consciousness.
Incidentally, what was the ball of light that I saw at that time?
It will definitely be my guardian spirit. A guardian spirit is also invisible, but it is there to watch over each and every one of us at all times.
