Victor Borras' Out-of-Body
54 years old now. When I was 19 years old I had become
a Christian and I began preaching the Bible. I read
the Bible every day and prayed daily.
I met these missionaries one
day and they were different. Two families each had children
and they were all dressed in this white robes and all
wore their hair long brushed backwards. The men, husbands
and older sons, never shaved. I learned from them that
God had told them to practice this tradition.
one night after I preached, I went home happy and excited
but tired and sleepy. So instead of praying for about
a usual 30 minutes or so, I did a quick 10 to 30 second
prayer and jumped to bed and fell into a very deep sleep.
I don't recall how long I slept but suddenly I heard
the door knock. I quickly got up.
me this was no dream. It was real.
answered the door. There standing in front of me was
one of the husband missionaries and with a great smile
he simply said, "God bless you."
As he was dressed everyone
compared him to Moses or a prophet from the Old Testament
was happy to see him visit me so I quickly invited him
to my room. But he didn't walk in.
next thing I knew I was back on my bed and he simply
floated to the foot end of my bed. While floating there
in a standing position, he asked me to get him some
fruits. I quickly went to the kitchen and from the refrigerator
I grabbed oranges, grapes, bananas, etc. It seemed I
had an assortment of all kinds of fruits that I was
more than desirous to give to him. But when I got to
the bed and motioned to give them to him, he made a
gesture that he did not mean eatable fruits but spiritual
fruits. I understood this to mean converts into Christianity
by my continuing preaching the Bible. But I wanted him
to take the eatable fruits too. But he suddenly disappeared.
then felt myself alone but thankful that this had occurred.
something strange happened as I lay in bed. I saw this
cloud descending from my ceiling and coming down towards
me but I wasn't scared, just apprehensive.
the cloud was descending on me, I had this feeling of
fear. That part confused me, I could never understand
why fear? But when the cloud covered me completely it
was magical, a smile came over me, not a physical smile
where my mouth was curved to form a smile, but something
that tingled sensations of the GREATEST joy any human
could experience, for I could feel my feet, my chest,
arms, brain, heart and soul all consumed into a joyous
smile of my soul! That's why I knew this was GOD.
the cloud covered my body, from toe to top of my head,
I felt the most enormous and immense sensation of LOVE.
It was so beautiful that I began laughing out of the
joy this gave me. It was like too much for my body to
contain this. And it seemed that I heard this voice
from heaven speak to me and say, "Well done my son."
hearing this, I then believed that I had been carried
to heaven or before the Almighty God.
was so filled with LOVE and JOY. I was content and NEVER
wanted to go back to Earth, ever. But I again heard
these words, "It is not your time for you have much
fruits to bring to me." But I did not want to return
back to this Earth.
I felt myself back on my bed and the cloud had left.
I felt so immensely sad and wanted to cry. I knew I
wasn't being rejected, but had things to do, only I
couldn't think of being back to Earth and going back
to things of this Earth.
to my bed I had a window. This was during the summer
and I always kept my window opened. So I thought or
I heard a voice say, as if from the basement, "If you
jump off the window you'll go back to that wonderful
place and you wont have to spend any more time on this
Earth." The logic seemed true and clear.
I sensed myself putting my legs first through the window.
Then an image came flashing to my head quickly. I received
a message that if I jump I'd be killing myself, committing
suicide, and this does not please GOD. I'd be escaping
HIS WILL and would be wrong to do in the eyes of GOD.
And it is better to be faithful and patient and pleasing
then to be so self-willed and do what I knew was wrong
and unfavorable to GOD.
I simply returned back to bed and accepted my destiny.
As I moved my body closer to where my pillow was I noticed
that as I was awakening, my legs were actually sticking
out of the window.
I went to sleep, with a smile and at peace.
always wondered if this was like a near-death experience.
Even though there was no hospital, surgery, or a flatliner
situation, some of the other scenarios did seem to be
there. Any ideas?
Williams' reply: Very interesting
experiences you have. These kind of experiences can
labeled many different things and they could be one
whole experience involving three separate kinds of aspects
to it and this is what I think you had.
my opinion, you mentioned your were greeted by a husband
missionary at the door. If this man was the "essence"
of a deceased person (i.e., spirit, ghost, whatever)
and you were wide awake, then the first part of your
experience may have been what is called a "pre-death"
vision. Before many people die, they are visited by
someone on the Other Side, usually to tell them they
are soon to join them.
you didn't die, your second experience probably was
a near-death experience or a vision (these kind of things
overlap and even are part of other experiences) but
probably a near-death experience because your third
experience was obviously an out-of-body experience.
reason I say your third experience is an out-of-body
experience is because of several reasons. You mentioned
a point in time when you were awakening yet saw your
legs sticking out of the window. This kind of thing
has happened to me twice in my life and it is the result
of "sleep paralysis." When you are asleep, your consciousness
leaves your body and your physical body becomes more
out of your control. This is because nature does not
want you acting out your dreams, like a sleepwalker,
when you are dreaming. But in your case, because it
does appear you had a near-death experience, returned
to your body then had a brief out-of-body experience
involving sleep paralysis.
is during out-of-body experiences where people are more
apt to come in contact with earthbound souls of the
kind that might tell you to kill yourself, in my opinion.
Also, the realm of your dreams is the same realm where
out-of-body experiences occur and the realm is called
the "astral realm" or the "earthbound realm" because
it is close to Earth. This realm is like a never-never
land where we can see our loved ones on the other side,
experience whatever our minds desire, and even hear
the voice of God. When you are finished dreaming, your
soul body or "astral body" returns to your physical
paralysis happens when you awaken before your astral
body has returned to your physical body. It is a strange
sensation where your physical body is paralyzed for
a short while and you can momentarily see two of yourself.
In my case, I once woke up but was paralyzed. For a
brief moment, I saw that I was half-way out of my body.
It was like being at two places at the same time. The
first time this happened to me I was terrified. Then
I realized that it was an extremely brief out-of-body
experience resulting from sleep paralysis.
course, all near-death experiences start out as an out-of-body
experience and then progresses to certain stages. I
think your experience began with a pre-death vision
where the missionary appeared and told you what was
about to happen. Then the near-death experience. When
you returned to your body, you had a brief out-of-body
experience resulting from sleep paralysis and it was
at this time the earthbound soul (probably a suicide)
told you to kill yourself. Very interesting experience(s)
I believe. But not unusual in of themselves. Having
all three of these in one experience: pre-death, near-death,
out-of-body, is not common I believe. But not impossible.
Thanks for sharing this.
