What’s Your Reality?

Updated: Mar 27, 2022


My alarm went off at 6:30 am and as I got out of bed, I noticed a bright light shining on the other side of my door. Even though it was shut, I could see the light streaming in through the cracks.


“What in the world?” I thought to myself. “Am I dreaming or am I really seeing this?”

I walked slowly toward the door and a part of me became afraid. As much as I yearned to reach out, another part of my mind was screaming at me to run the other way. I took a deep breath and mustered my courage enough to put my hand on the doorknob.


The instant my hand touched the knob, I was transported to the other side. I was enveloped in pure light. There were no edges in the room, no floor or ceiling. I was weightless, floating in a sea of light.


My fear began to fade away and I took a deep breath as I realized that I was alright. The fear I had been feeling was leftover from the worry that had gripped me the night before.  I had gone to bed full of anxiety, wondering if my life really going to work out, if my business was going to be success, if my marriage was going to stay together. I was questioning my life but, in this room full of light, I understood that everything was going to be ok.


Peace flowed over me and I released all of my worries, letting the light fill my spirit. When I turned to open the door to go back to to my bedroom, I couldn’t find the door. I couldn’t turn back because I was living in the moment and there was no way for me to return to the place where I had started.


In the distance, I heard the alarm going off once more and I woke up, in my bed once more. I rolled over, confused and blinking against the darkness. Was my experience just a dream or did it really happen?


That’s the question I want you to ask yourself. What’s real? My reality is different from your reality, just like your reality is different from your family’s. We see what we perceive and what we perceive becomes our reality.


Tip to Take Away


When you experience something that is unfamiliar, don’t be afraid, walk towards it, step into it.
