I remember that balmy summer evening in 2006 as if it were yesterday: suburban noises echoing in the warm outside air, dogs barking, the excited laughter of children, and the distant sound of cars and motorbikes snorting past in the merriment. I sat alone in my sitting room, meditating quietly on the joyful sounds outside in my neighborhood. The clock on the mantelpiece told me that it was just after 7:00 p.m. The television was switched off, and my mind gently surrendered to a quiet smoothness of contentment. From time to time,my eyes wandered to gaze at the familiar objects in the room: the small statue of Buddha on the mantle, the family photographs, and finally the large, colorful tapestry of a proud American Indian chief wearing a fabulous headdress of feathers.
As my mind waves moved gently and peacefully in soft trance, I was slowly and progressively receiving magnificent energy vibrations of shimmering intensity through my chakras.My psychic antennae seemed softly interrupted and aware that I had never felt this type of etheric transmission before. Something drew my gaze to the left side of the room. I was quietly startled as I could see and feel powerful energy emanating from a silver, transparent orb, the size of a mediumscreened TV, hovering and pulsating near the wall. It was beautiful; real and as clear as day. In total,mesmeric captivation,my first thought was: Is this supernatural visitor friend or foe?
I had not psychically invited this ethereal guest, nor had I summoned it in any way. As I felt its energy further and more deeply,my soul relaxed in perfect, blissful peace. I intuited that this heavenly orb was manifested from a good source and meant no harm, only sincere friendship. As I studied the orb, it sent blissful, healing energy into my soul and body. I remained quiet, eyes transfixed on this angelic visitor. Then, it seemed to read my curious thoughts and moved closer to me. The power of this silver, shimmering orb became intensely happy as it glided closer to me.Now, it was hovering right in front of me sending blissful vibrations that sweetly engulfed my being. I looked at my arm and it read my quiet command,touching my arm with deeply serene sensations. Then the heavenly visitor moved right onto my heart chakra, and whammo! I felt harmoniously linked to the universe,God, and all beings. I felt I truly belonged in kinship with all life and with this bright heavenly orb that had suddenly,out of nowhere, befriended me.
Slowly, this harbinger of blissful communion returned to the center of the room and glistened etheric silver energy waves, still warming my heart like a true friend for quite awhile. Then slowly it dissipated into the holy plane from which it came. My eyes darted to the clock on the mantle. The orb had been in my sitting room for at least half an hour. I gasped and sat up, filled with the warmest goodwill and lucid memory of this strange but fantastic event. The heavenly orb has not appeared again…yet!—Mark Airlie, Wellington, New Zealand
