Eve W's Experience

Experience description:   

My strange experience and events  following are still clear in my mind after many years. My boyfriend and I were very much in love and slept together before marrying. I was living at home the time with my widowed mother.

I had a couple of weeks before thought I may have been pregnant. This was confirmed to me by an OBE one morning as I was sleeping in my bed. I found myself suspended over my body  looking down at what appeared to be a diagram of my insides. I could see in detail the sperm meeting the egg and realized I was pregnant. I then looked up a bit and over to a small group of women in white standing by a cottage door holding a baby. They were radiating love and compassion towards me as they looked at me. I felt they were distant relatives who had died. After that, I was back in my body and I woke up. I never mentioned the incident to anyone and a visit to the doctor confirmed that I was pregnant. I married my boyfriend and we moved to our own flat.  As the months went by things seemed to be going fairly well, although I slept badly and had terrible nightmares. I was sitting quietly in the sitting room on my own the evening before I was due to go into hospital to be induced when out of the corner of my eye I saw dark grey wings flutter and hover in the room for a few seconds. I felt a strong sense of foreboding and thought this is what they call the angel of death. In bed that night I had a vivid dream that I was in hospital about to give birth in and the consultant a dark colored man was saying to a colleague there was going to be complications.

The next day arrived and I duly went into hospital.  The scenario I had dreamt the night before played itself out with the dark colored doctor telling me there was complications and the baby was spinal bifida. I was given a drug at the wrong time which cased my lung to collapse and could hardly breathe. After I was wheeled to a private room. I had lost a huge amount of blood also and I can remember being lifted up and the mattress changed. I was in hospital over a week during which time the baby, sadly died.

Weeks later, I questioned myself  over and over why had this happened, to go through all that and no baby. The answer came quite clearly each time from a voice that said it was for a reason. I gradually accepted that and realized that I was immature myself in many ways. I had an emotionally and physically  violent upbringing and possibly would not have coped well with a baby at that time.  Twelve years went by, then I had a beautiful healthy daughter. I have read that children  before they are born choose their parents and that everything is for a reason so we may learn and become more enlightened by our experiences of life.

         Yes     It sounds very odd but while living abroad in 1984 I had a strange dream. My deceased father appeared to me or I came to be with him. He was sitting alone by a bonfire  and it was dark. He said he was lonely and wanted me to join him. I said I must go back and woke up next morning puzzling about how he could be lonely as he was very religious and I would have expected him to be a shining light and happy. For several  nights after I had the most awful feeling as I was dozing off to sleep at night of an unseen power  trying to forcefully pull my spirit from me. I could feel myself getting weaker as it was happening. I realized it must be father trying to make me join him.  Every time I was drifting off to sleep the same thing happened. I knew if I slept I may not wake up and sat up half the night and dozed during the day. I said prayers to God to protect me and keep me safe. It was a most exhausting and frightening time.  After about a week it stopped and I could get back to normal.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        My father died young in 1968 when I was 15. I missed him a lot. I do remember a few months after he died I was walking in the country with our dog where we used to walk and I was feeling very upset. I came up to a small bridge and a hooded monk like figure with a face I could barely see was standing there. A powerful feeling of love and compassion was coming from it and within a moment these feelings had been "draped" round my shoulders like a warm cloak. I instantly felt comforted, the figure was gone and I said a silent thank you. Several years later when I had moved to England an episode in my life left me feeling very sad and upset. I was making my way up the steps to visit Westminster R.C. Cathedral when I felt exactly the same warm cloak of compassion around my shoulders for a brief moment or two. It was a lovely feeling for it to happen again although no monk like figure as I gave thanks.
