Tahoe Today: An out-of-body response

A letter from a reader:

Twenty years ago, on June 28, 1992, I had an out-of-body experience. I was in perfect health. I woke up early, looked out the window to see a beautiful pre-dawn sky. I went back to bed. With my eyes closed and awake, I saw a distant light. I was rapidly moving towards the light. My body started to tremble. It’s hard to describe the intense love, joy and wisdom coming from the very bright light. I knew then; this is God. At that moment, I thought if I entered into the light, I might not come back to my body. I was 35 years old at the time and I had two dogs to support. As soon as I had that thought, the light withdrew. My body still trembling and falling away from the light. I opened my eyes and saw the room shaking. It was an earthquake. I ran downstairs, opened the front door and saw the sky full of light. The electrical transformers were blowing up due to the earthquake. What a morning I had.

Why did this happen to me? In my early 30s, I had a deep desire to know more of the true reality of Life. I became an avid reader to gain knowledge and wisdom. Many years ago, a great teacher once said, “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8).

I enjoy your column,


A big hey Darlene,

Thank you so much for reading my column. I hope I can enlighten Lake Tahoe and readers in the best way I know how by telling true stories that happen to me and my readers, you are a perfect example. To try and answer your question: the big word here is why I believe only God has the answer to that one. However, we can speculate in theory.

I do know for a fact and through experience, so many experiences, that we have a physical body and a spiritual body. We know what we know and there is know one out there that can tell me differently. Your earthquake experience is the exact same thing as what I went through and, until this day I wonder, but more so I accept, the old saying that goes, ” I was so scared to death that I jumped out of my body.” I believe this to be true.

For, when we are startled, a few of us leap forward out of our body without really knowing it. Until we look around and see our physical body right next to us, I know this sounds like science fiction but, after what I went though and what you went through, I know we can both agree there is more than meets the eye.

There was a television movie that Shirley MaClaine put out in the eighties, “Out On The Limb.” I believe you could buy a copy on Amazon.com.

Shirley wrote about herself a quest of her spiritual journey, she ended up in Peru, at Machu Picchu; with guide David, they were in the spiritual springs of Peru and were meditating. David told her to concentrate on the light of the candle, which she did, soon she was in a deep trance and ventured out of her body, through many galaxies, she looked down and saw her astral body tide to a long cord, she wanted to go further deep within the cosmos when she thought to herself, “I wonder if I could make it.” With the limited thought, she bounced back into her body.

I hope I shed a little light on your vast question.

Thank you,
