20 Years Scared.
My oldest son is 27, he was 2 years old when my wife and I began experimenting with the idea that we could get help in figuring out a life course of action to take that would benefit the whole family.
I worked on deep meditation - clear the mind, quieting the mind. Usually I would give up after an hour, sometimes I would fall asleep.
After several weeks of using this method, I relaxed - fell asleep, I was wakened by a a low growl from my cat that I did not realize was laying nearby watching me. I closed my eyes again and from deep inside the void - the quiet, I heard, "I am Here".
I thought that I was trying too hard, I listened again and the voice spoke louder and said, "I am Here". Although the voice sounded friendly I was spooked by the cat growl and my cat quickly left the room.
I jumped up and told my wife of my experience she was not as excited as I, but we agreed to give it a rest and have never tried this again.
What do you think?
