My Wakeup Call: The Day I Opened My Spiritual Eyes
Many people have experienced a “wake up call”. This is a time when something very significant happened that changed their entire outlook on life. The call is usually surrounded by immense pleasure and joy so intense it’s called ecstasy by the experiencer.
I’m excited to bring you a series about incredible, life changing events that open a person’s, “spiritual eyes” for the first time or provided answers to important questions about the nature of reality.
This first story is by a 43 year old man from Australia

An Immense Presence, Invisible Yet Unmistakable
I was driving home from a friend’s house in the country contemplating creation. A thought came: am I the result of evolution or of divine creation? In that moment, the world ceased to exist and I became aware of an all-encompassing golden light, like a river flowing out from the vastness of space. I noticed there was an immense presence, invisible yet unmistakable.
A sense of unworthiness overcame me and a fear to turn towards the presence. Immediately a wave of deep unconditional love came over me and, as I turned towards the presence, it was shown in a sense of just knowing that my sense of unworthiness was unfounded. I was innocent of all I thought I did, it [(life)] was just a dream, and I was forever loved.
After this communication was the recognition that I was light and love emanating from the source of all that is. An overwhelming sense of gratitude and love pervaded my being. The more gratitude for this love I felt, the more the love would grow. At some point, it seemed as if I would explode in this ecstasy.
Then, in a flash, the world appeared, and once again I was driving my car. At that time, I had no idea how long I was unaware for, but, in hindsight from when the experience occurred to when I regained perception, I somehow negotiated two major intersections, merged onto the motorway, and traveled for some time at around 100 kilometers an hour. I would suggest I traveled about 15km or so.
For the rest of the drive home, I was just in a state of awe and somehow still pervaded by this all-encompassing golden light. The world of perception seemed to be imaginary for some time afterwards, and the light has never disappeared.
