Recently, I reconnected with ‘Larry,’ a former police officer in central Texas who has had numerous alien encounters and also out-of-body experiences. He first wrote us about his experiences last year and his stories were quite compelling. We published them in five parts.
Some of you might remember the astral sex story he related, and I recall a couple of readers didn’t feel good about it, and suggested it was an encounter with a lower astral being.
So here’s a story that balance that one – an astral journey to a monastery! What I found particularly interesting about this tale is that Larry referred to it as a journey into a past life. I had never heard of an out-of-body experience linked to a past life. So I asked for more details.
Larry has both spontaneous and intentional OOBEs and this one was intentional, though he had no idea where it would take him. He found himself in either Mexico or Texas in the 1600s, and he was a Catholic brother.
“At this point in my life I had just ended my law enforcement career and was actually in-between jobs, so I was ‘Mr. Mom.’ I woke up around 6 AM and got my son off to school. Then on this particular morning, I went back to bed in a spare bedroom because my wife, who worked night , had just gotten to sleep and I didn’t want to disturb her.
“So I laid down and began my ritual to have an out-of-body experience. After only a few minutes of relaxing and forming my intention, I felt the familiar vibration and rushing sound in my head.
“At first, I just flew, but then found myself kneeling in a small room. It was very sparsely furnished, a small bed, and beside table and a single wooden chair. I was looking out a small, high window and could onlys see a square of pure blue sky.
“At one point, I saw the person, but then I was instantly ‘in’ the person, and in a split second I realized that I was a monk in a monastery or church compound somewhere in he Southwest. I somehow knew I was either in what would become Texas or Mexico near what would become the southern border of Texas. I also knew that I was happy in my situation and at that very moment was praying with gratitude for my position in life.
“I do not know how long in ‘real time’ this experience lasted, but I think it was probably ten minutes or so. I felt in that experience that I was a native of Spain and voluntarily came to this place and was content.”
He also told me about an OOBE to a topless bar in Texas, and it’s a good one. But we’ll hold that one for the book we’re working on: BEYOND STRANGE: True Tales of Alien Encounters, the Paranormal, Time Travel & More.
