Saintly Visitations

Since I was a young girl , I have had experiences that I do not understand. One that really stands out is that when I was 15 , I had started to get ready to go to bed for the evening. I decided to sit on the floor next to my bed and say my prayer, As I turned to the side to get into bed …I saw about 2 feet above the floor a man in a white robe with a blue sash around his waist look at me and point his finger at me. He was covered by a golden light. At that point a string of white light went from his finger to the middle of my forehead. I flew up off the floor as I was filled with so much energy that I could run a mile. It was dark out so I decided to run in my parent’s room instead to tell them what happened. My father said I had a spiritual experience. What I don’t know is why? Why me? I was not raised in a religious home. My parents studied Buddhism. Can you give me any insight on this? Since then i have had dreams of such beings who tell me and show me of things that are coming. Please help me.
