    I am sorry. Today i witnessed the hearts of men. I am sickened by how some people are. Perhaps i have something of great importance to bring science and religion together. Unfortunately. From what i saw this night. Something so enormously heartless. Something so disgustingly vile. I need to recover. I just can't believe how some humans are. I am sorry. If you we're here to read about my post. I encountered many angels. Had contact with an Angel names Daniël. Was given a gift. And thats the story. I am just a bit sickened by Men at this moment. I will not share anything for a while. Even though i still believe that this is probably the place to share my encounters. I will post the picture of my scars i recieved on my left hand. And let the true believers seek contact themselves. That's it. I just need some time to recover after what i witnessed tonight. How heartless some humans can be. No, i rather be alone and observe rather than leave this information in the open. Please understand my choice. You can read the story in the quotes. It came from my mouth. It will be the only thing i post here. Enjoy.

    The mind has extraordinary potentials, and you now realise this.

    I could share stories, but I won't, at least not now, because I want to share more general thoughts with you.
    I began my inner life so to speak at about age 15, when I learned of the processes of sequential relaxation and what I then called self hypnosis. After school I would go to a quiet place by the river, and just trip out. Quite naturally without drugs.
    Later in life I became a practitioner of Buddhism under the direct guidance of a lama. Tibetan Buddhism involves developing skill in visualisation.

    Every night you dream. You are completely involved in the dream, which is a world in itself.

    So you know that your mind/brain can internally experience ANYTHING.

    Fortunately, as a teenager exploring the mind, I had no religious affiliation or background, and did not discover my mind's potentials in that context.

    My meditation practice has opened up more conscious control of those potentials.

    What I want to suggest to you is - don't take these experiences too seriously. That may sound disrespectful and I apologise if it does, but it is meant with utmost respect.

    I have no cause to doubt that your experiences are intense and as-if-real. What I have learned is that the subconscious will produce varieties of different experiences - and the nature of them is determined primarily by how you use your conscious mind.

    Robert Anton Wilson, author and teacher of sorts, suggested an experiment. The experiment is to choose some mythic, meaningful or mystic being to make the focus of your mind for three weeks.

    Choose freely, it could be Krishna or Ra or even Superman. Meditate on this being every day for at least one hour. Regularly remember this being during the day.Have pictures of this being around you. Write some poetry to or about this being.

    In other words, focus to the point just shy of obsession on this being for three weeks.

    Preferably pick a subject not currently very familiar or special to you - because it will make the result clearer and easy to grasp.

    Wilson more or less guarantees that you will have 'visions', coincidences and so forth centered around this being.

    Then do it again with a different subject.

    When you get the same kind of results, the point will become clear.

    Whether or not you do this experiment, others including myself have. And it makes clear that the conscious programs the subconscious. And the subconscious produces output....

    Apart from all that...the meditation process is one of not actively engaging in the products of the subconscious. The meditator observes what arises, and releases any engagement in the reactions to that.

    Are you able to sit in 'tranquil abiding', just following your breath, without these extraordinary events ?

    I am interested in such things and do believe in angels. But unfortunately, I don't know what to tell you. Do you question the reality of the vision yourself?

    One other thing I meant to say.
    You may be a very lucky fellow, lol.
    And I certainly am in no position to know what you have experienced or are experiencing.
    It does sound excellent to be honest. Hopefully your seraphim is a wise and helpful blessing.
    I wouldn't talk about this to just anyone BTW. I guess you are already clear on that.
    Whether this is a manifestation of your own wisdom mind, or an alien first contact LOL, or whatever...if it's good, then good.

    Peace be on you.
    IMO, the stress on your nerves may have caused it.
    Angels come from God, they come with spiritual enhancement, knowledge and news.

    More
    "Good people have good dreams, which sometimes are the product of their psyche, but they are good. Bad people have bad dreams which are the product of their psyche and they are bad. But such dreams do not have any sign language, a sign language which could not be created by a person who has the dream, a sign language which, when understood and interpreted, is proven to be right by subsequent events. So, this is the sure sign of a dream being from God because it has an internal evidence which is externally testified, not as an internal evidence of impressions of the person who has a dream, but evidence which appears from around, from the outer world to testify to the truth of the dream as having been created by God."

    It is not a dream or manifestation. And i know exactly what you mean Papoon. I have told that myself many times too. I have what people call a Eidetic memory. I am not saying it is off extraordinary capability, as i can not recall names, numbers and words.. at all. However, I can recall the simplest of conversations i have with people. Playing off memories like a movie. I can build rooms from scratch in my mind very easily with my eyes open and with relatively good accuracy. I had this ability all my life, and i assume everyone does but most of the people i met do not have this. I realise that any memory is prone to alterations. So i wrote it down instead. As it was fresh. The earliest memory i have is from age 2. I have been sitting in Horse stance for 10 minutes thinking about a leaf. I walked around for hours with a silent mind. And thoughts focussed on a simple object. As was instructed.

    Also,

    I was able to have Lucid Dreams for as long as i can remember. Even a peroid where i could have it on command in the middle of the day while being wide awake. Much like you described. It started at age 3 from what i can recall. I almost fell down the stairs as i was playing on my toy firetruck one day. The release of adrenaline was so intense that the experience returned to me as a nightmare. In my nightmare i fell down the stairs and woke up crying. This nightmare kept returning to me every month or so. So even to this day i can recall that specific dream. Everytime i had that dream i experienced the release of adrenaline. One day I recognized the dream and decided to take control and not fall down the stairs. And that was my first Lucid Dream. As i grew older it occured less often but more intense when it did. In my teens, i was able to go into a deep trance after about 6 minutes and summon a Lucid Dream where i would wake up in the same bed i fell asleep in, stand up and do whatever i wanted to do. It was extreme. I was able to have 4 Lucid Dreams in a row one day. And I wrote down the technique i used. In detail. But alas, i was not able to develop the ability to keep the cheated Lucid Dream go on for as long as i wanted. These days i am not interested in lucid dreaming anymore because it became boring. I can recall from my mind, a lot of the non lucid dreams i had in my life as well as the lucid ones.

    Third Eye is opened and it do not question the authenticy of my visions at all. I noticed very clearly that this is different. For i could walk around with my eyes closed and even touch it. I practise walking meditation. Was told often that what i saw with my third eye wasn't to be taken seriously as it reflected my thoughts. I am able to recognize it. Except that it is interacting with me. I shared with you but the first vision i had. You can read my inexperience. As was my goal to make it that way. Explain what my experience was so that you can create your answer and i can learn what it perhaps was. I was told not to take the visions seriously by many. Hence i never shared it and i still didn't. Just the mildest one. But as time went it became clear that this was not just the product of the mind. Otherwise i won't post it here. This was perhaps the most mildest of visions. If i wanted to see superman, i could do that right now, first or third person. I am creating the image in my mind right now as i write this. And it is not the same as the experience from my journal.

    I label it an angel only here to make it be understood more easily. For an angel is well know and it looks like an angel. I have now a little more insight into what i am dealing with. I wouldn't make a 50000 word journal about it if it was just a Lucid Dream, Sleep Paralysis, Tranquil Abiding, Photographic Memory or anything like that. To be honest: it was fully interactive. And it was fully interactive everytime i had the experience. And i also had experiences that weren't interactive. And clearly the chakra's or my own body. I have developed scars on my hands reflecting a finger pointing up and had nosebleeds while i was having insight into Armageddon. I have been electrocuted and heated up by touching something. Creating permenant scars too. If it wasn't this serious, trust me. As atheist i wouldn't share it.

    Like @Papoon , I am wary of claiming to know what you are experiencing. It does sound as dramatic as some of my own encounters, lol. As he suggested, I would not advise that you run around telling everyone you know that this is happening to you. Without being condescending, you ARE still very young and inner reality unravels in the most fascinating ways. There is so much to explore. My best advice is not to get hung up on this. One could convince themselves that this is a sign that they are very special, as not everyone gets a visit from a passing "angel". Treat this more as a postcard, if you will, from the self you will be later in this life to the self that you are now designed to give you encouragement. Do not fall into the idea that this is some supernatural figure that you have been graced by due to an imagined exalted station you are yet to claim. That is a rabbit hole you really don't want to go down.

    As for the so-called Seraphim, if the little bugger gets on your nerves just tell it to buzz off. :)

    PS: I do hope you appreciate the point of the exercise that Papoon has given you. It is designed to bring home an important feature of consciousness in a most indelible way.
    Pro Tip: It has to do with expectation and fixation. :)

    I knew people with similar experiences. Just take it in stride and don't get too hung up over things. If Buddhist training happens to be revelent, then you just proceed in life acknowledging your experiences and continue on "chopping wood and carrying water."

    Is it an evidence that angels exist?
    Did the angel has any verbal conversation with you? Please

    I find an interesting website from a Christian:

    "It’s ironic that I, a former psychotherapist who once worked in locked hospital psychiatric wards, now teach people how to hear voices! Yet, when we listen for the voice of God and the angels, it’s the sanest sound we’ll ever hear. It can show us love in the face of seeming chaos and provide us with logical solutions when challenges arise.

    I find another website from a Jew:
    "Dreams and visions have always been the forms of communication through which man speaks to, or hears from, Heaven, be it prophecy directly from God, or a message passed through one of the messengers (angels). This is clear throughout all Biblical and later Torah literature." Page 4/5
    "Telepathic communication with extraterrestrial entities is an ancient practice still observed by those “in the know.” To those who seek to join them, the path is open and welcoming." Page 5/5

    I have chosen not to share anything anymore with anyone for a while. After what i witnessed was the true hearts of some men. I need to reevaluate my choice to bring this in the open. Perhaps need some more time to observe. May your God have mercy on your souls if your heart is pure. Whether its Jehovah, Allah, God or anything you want to believe. As long as Iblis drowns i feel happy. For i have ultimately given up hope for most of mankind and it's road to happiness. I have seen something that shows me how people can be. It is so horrible. I wish you NEVER ever meet anyone like everyone i met this night. Me they left alone. For i am strong and build. I am not prey. But some people are filthy predators. So, have a good day people on this forum. Belief what you want to believe and live happy. Always be realistic with any visions you may see in your mind. They might as very well. Be very true. And grant you perhaps a vision of the future. Do not judge based on one person, but rather, observe and let your Belief judge. Let noone influence you. For everyone i met tonight, they have a heart made of ****. And i rather be alone for a while. Be strong, if you are weak, you are the prey. Men are animals. Do not trust anyone. It breaks my heart to see how people can be. If you want the information you seek from me. Look for contact yourself. These beings are wise and if your heart is pure. You can too have the same experience. I see now i am not the only one with this ability now, at least i thank the people for showing i am not alone. But i rather be alone after what i saw was the Hearts of Men. Let the believers see the truth, let the believers feel joy. And let the believers drown Satan in a lake made of ice somewhere on an moon named Titan for until our sun turns black.

    My vision until now, is becoming a reality. I have predicted everything that would happen this night. And i predicted at least two lifes ruined in heartless fashion And i have witnessed it first hand happenning. I hope sincerely that nothing else becomes truth. It is seriously scary if visions become reality.
