"One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day."
You can easily imagine that sharing an experience which is beyond this limited 3D reality could be somewhat out of your "comfort" zone. Even with my own paranormal events, I still occasionally feel skepticism first before remembering to keep an open mind when listening to a fellow traveler's recounting of their journey. Again, diversity is also present in this beautiful aspect of the fractal tapestry we call Life.
Although we habitually hang around people who are accepting of our human identity story, the experiencing of an event, such as a near death experience (NDE), tends to dramatically alter ones beliefs. The key is to realize that all beliefs are limiting boundaries we have created to give us the illusion of control. It is our go to response to avoid feeling the fear of change. I have found that it takes a period of time before one can share, simply because you need to process this new information. Most people begin by reading books and articles on the topics of their event. They then further their research by asking questions in on-line forums or in person during a workshop.
Others will change the course of their previous path and seek out like-minded individuals. This can happen as a gradual transition, while holding down the same job and still mixing within the same social circles, but at one point, we all come to a crossroad where we must choose whether to continue to live our lives with self-imposed limits or Trust that all is as it should be.
When we take on the role of multidimensional messenger or travel agent for the beyond, this is when life becomes very, very interesting.
