Debi S' Experience

Experience description:   

After my child and my friends child came back from what we thought was a church group, we were horrified to find out what had been some sort of cult ritual and most likely a human sacrifice as well.  She remembers screaming and being sexually molested.  I became very angry and agitated.  I went into the other room to try and calm down and not let my child see how upset I was.  Then when I thought I could not take any more stress or get any angrier, I felt like I just stepped out of my body and went about maybe 7 feet in front of myself.  I started talking to my friend who told me,  "Your lips aren't moving but I can hear you in my mind."  Then I felt this extreme feeling of peace and safeness that I could not even begin to describe.  I knew that God was with me or in me at that time and then I went back into my own body.  I then knew that God is present in our lives when we want him to be.  Evil is just as real and present in this world and that there is a conflict going on that will eventually come to a final conflict.  We all are involved in it and the result that will follow.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?     No      

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Yes     How do you explain stepping out of your body and communicating with someone mentally not with your mouth but your mind.  It was frightening for us both.

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?          Yes     My daughter had been molested after having went to church with a bunch of other children and some adults.  I found out later that it was a church with a upside down cross and an alter which was used to possibly slay an infant.  My daughter came back terrified she has never been the same since. She believes that a infant was killed but is not sure and has blocked a lot of the details out because she cannot deal with it emotionally.  She will not let her child out of her site and leaves him with no one but me.

Did you experiment while out of the body or in another, altered state? No      

not this time but yes later

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Yes     I didn't experience this alone and after that incident I had mental conversations with my mother and my older daughter on several occasions  I now can also float on water and cannot dive down anymore.  I can stand up in a swimming pool and people think I am not in the deep end when I am.

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?          Yes     I felt no pain or discomfort of any kind and there were no smells that I am aware of.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Yes     I now work in a job that connects me with people who need my help and I ask God to lead me to them and he does.  There are always little clues like names and places that coincide and common places like the last lady I cared for was from my home town and knew my Dad and had worked for him when she was younger.  I had no idea of this until I got to the assignment.

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes     confusion and disbelief

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  I now let God lead me more and think of self very little other than what is necessary to live.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      The feelings before the experience.  Finding out how much God really is with us daily was a very reassuring experience.
