I am a scientist, so I am going to try to explain my experience, but this will never do it justice.
This universe was not our solar system, perhaps not even our galaxy, but some part of the universe near God's location. I felt it was like a corridor but the expanse of the universe was all around me. I saw everything in 3D; I was able to look around. At this point I was sitting up comfortably. I felt a pure intelligence flow through me, all knowledge, like omnipotence; I didn't see any other people, just the beautiful expanse of the universe. I felt home, comfortable, and no fear. I had the feeling of peace, joy and warmth. I saw stars and planets and knew them inside and out it seemed. All that I saw I seemed to comprehend, not like we do with learning say the periodic table etc., but all at once, like a download of information--pure knowledge is what I call it. I then looked to my left and saw a wall of bright light, intense and beautiful. I felt love, warmth, joy, peace and most of all overwhelming love of God, at that moment although I didn't see God. I knew I was in his presence and the presence of Jesus.
Then I saw a cylinder-like, tube structure. It emanated from the light to the left and came out kind of like a tube of light. This plasma-like substance then went into my core gut, below my sternum. I felt intense, amazing ecstasy, joy, and love of God. I saw it physically go through my body and then out my fingertips; it was so spectacular. The feeling was incredible. I remember feeling, "I want to know more, go further. I want to be with you God now and forever and ever." I did not think of earth or my husband (I feel he is my soul mate as we're inseparable). I know though, that we and our children will be together forever with God and our loved ones. This is some of the knowledge imparted to me. The point, I was so consumed by this love of God I wanted nothing and no one else.
At the moment of wanting to go further in my experience, I found myself looking at the ceiling back in my body lying on my back in my bed. I had no concept of time, or how long this lasted. However, I felt eternal love and with this knowledge I remember thinking, "This makes sense; it is common sense!” I am frustrated because I don't have recall for the knowledge downloaded. Although every second of every hour of every day I feel it is in my soul, kind of like in a zip file, if you will.
I believe God is a scientist and loving father. He wants us to explore and ask questions etc. I am Mormon/LDS and strong in my beliefs about the church. Joseph Smith taught that God lives near a planet called Kolob. This sounds silly to people, but makes sense to me (as a scientist) that God exists at a physical locality that is locatable when he wants us to know about it. Also, look at the universe, how odd the whole thing 'reality' really is. I mean we are on a great big magnet, earth, spinning through space and in orbits up to speeds that would blow your mind, yet we can't feel the momentum. I find particle physics and chemistry help me to feel closer to God.
