Experience description:  

I was asleep but suddenly felt as if electricity was running through my body so I woke up and could see my girl friend at work. She was sitting at her desk, then stood up and sat, stood up and sat several times. The meaning I got from this was her way of life was not for me and soon we broke up. 

Then I saw Abdul-Baha, Son of the Prophet Founder of the Baha'i Faith. I was very surprised and happy to see Him. He said, "I have been with you many time in the past and will be with you many times in the future." Those words are embedded in my Soul. Then the vision was over but I could still see Him.
