Was the kind of experience difficult to express in
If yes, What was it about the experience that makes it hard to communicate?
First of all, it is hard to tell anyone because
of fear that they will think I am crazy because the experience was so
At the time of this
experience, was there an associated life threatening event? No
If yes, describe.
What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience? Very
conscious. Was the experience dream like in any way?
No, not at all.
Was there any medical evidence of cessation of breathing or heart function?
Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?
Most definitely! If yes, describe your
appearance or form apart from your body. I did
not actually pay attention to the appearance of my body.
Describe in detail the events (in order)
that happened. This is going to be lengthy: In
1993, I was not attending church (I did, however, attend the Catholic church
since I was born and I was baptized at birth, and raised in the church and
attended faithfully until I was 18). I needed a babysitter for my daughter,
so I asked the neighbor if she could baby-sit. She told me yes. They were
Jehovah Witnesses. They told my daughter that their were demons in our
house. They also told my daughter that her toys were demonic. My daughter
was 7 at the time. She was freaked out. So I got in the car and drove from
church to church until I could find one that was open. I found a church and
this gentlemen was kind enough to explain to my daughter that her toys were
not demonic. He asked if she could attend vacation bible school there, and
I said yes. I took her there daily after work but I myself did not attend.
My daughter wanted me to attend the church but I
did not want to go. Then I noticed strange things happening to me. The
first strange thing that happened was that when I would just lay my head
down to go to sleep and I just closed my eyes, my mind would take me very
fast (almost like a sucking motion) to a location where a realtor was in
danger. I saw the house and the person she was with. The man hit her in
the head with his briefcase. She feel into the glass door and it shattered.
I remember this all vividly. If I opened my eyes, this vision would stop.
If I closed them, the vision would start again. The story with this realtor
happened over and over and each time this would happen, I would be taken to
the same location and the same characters would re-enact the same scene. I
was also taken to other things that were important to see (like a town
marker that said, "Welcome to Unionville". I didn't understand any of
this. This went on for a few days and then it stopped. Then I would go to
bed, lay my head down, close my eyes and I sensed something in the room.
When I opened my eyes, I noticed this angel-like
figure hovering in the corner of the room. It was gray-white, like a statue
with wings. It's eyes were statue-like as well. It really scared me. I
thought I was losing my mind. I woke my boyfriend up and asked him if he
saw the angel figure. He told me no. The angel figure was in the corner of
the room every night for about a week. Then one night, when I closed my
eyes, I sensed the angel figure was real close to me, so I opened my eyes
and it was hovering right about me (about 12 inches from my body). I was
petrified! I tried to wake my husband up but he wouldn't budge. Then I
hear a voice that told me sternly to pray. In my head I told the voice that
I did not know how to pray. The voice repeated that I needed to pray. I
then cried out to God in my head and asked for his help. Then this other
voice started praying. It was the most beautiful prayer I had ever heard. I
cannot remember any of the words of the prayer, but I could feel in my soul
that the prayer was awesome. It made me cry. After whatever it was that
prayed for me was finished, I felt my soul being sucked out of my body
backwards. It sucked me backwards down the hallway and out of the house and
I was elevated in mid air in front of my kid's basketball hoop. Then I saw
this beautiful iridescent cloud come up, and when it did, my yard lit up
from the brightness of the cloud. The color of the grass was beautiful (the
colors are beyond words; I cannot describe the beauty). The cloud started
spitting or shooting out white crosses, and the crosses circled my house and
it the crosses surrounded my house in a complete circle around my house.
There were 3 complete circles of white crosses around my house. Then I was
sucked forward back into my house, back down the hall, and back into my
body. I did not want to go into my body and when I did, it actually mentally
hurt me to go back into my body. Then I felt this warmth all over my body.
I felt like Jesus was holding me and I no longer had any fear. I fell
asleep like a baby. After that incident, I started attending the church
faithfully that I had been taking my daughter too.
What emotions did you feel? I think I described how I
felt above. I had fear, disbelief, awe, comfort, and finally peace.
Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? Yes,
like I said, there were voices talking to me and their was a voice that said
a beautiful prayer.
Did you pass into or through a tunnel or enclosure? No
Did you see a light? Yes
If yes, describe. The cloud lit up the night
sky and my yard, but not the surrounding yards. I did see lights outside of
my house that lit up my yard after this incident a couple more times too,
but then it ended.
Did you meet or see any other beings? No, other than
that statue-like angel. What was communicated?
No unless you call being scared to death by it a form
Did you experience a review of past events in your life?
Did you learn anything you did not have previously know?
Well, I don't know if you could say I learned anything
per say, because I was fearful from the angel-statue thing, heard a
beautiful prayer, did not understand why this cloud came and spit out
crosses, etc. The only thing I believe I learned from this was that I
believed that Jesus was holding me when it was all over and that I was in
Please provide details. Did you learn anything that helps you live
your life now? Actually, I am still perplexed
by the whole experience.
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events occurring while
you were unconscious that could be verified later? Yes,
my friend had the same visions about the realtor lady being hit in the head
by a man with a briefcase. She and I both experienced the same thing in
that respect, but she did not experience the other things I experienced.
How did you verify this? I told my boyfriend
what had happened to me and then my friend came over and told my boyfriend
and I about her strange dream about the realtor lady.
Did you see or visit any beautiful or otherwise distinctive locations,
levels or dimensions? No If yes, describe.
Did you have any sense of altered space or time?
Did you have a sense of knowing universal order and/or purpose?
No If yes, discuss and share what you came to know.
Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?
Did you become aware of future events in your life? Not
at that time, but I have since became accutely aware of things. Call it
intuition or psychic abilities. I can see dead people and spirit forms and
their auras; I can sense when a spirit is around me and whether or not the
spirit is a dark spirit or a heavenly spirit. I can read people's minds, I
can take a picture of someone and tell you if they are dead or alive and
what has happened to them, I can give psychic readings (without the use of
any implements, such as taro cards, etc).
If yes, describe. Based on your life following the spiritual spectrum
experience, how accurate was this awareness?
My accuracy is very good.
Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the
body? I was aware I was going back to my body but I
did not want to go. But I had no choice. If yes, describe,
including your emotions at that time. I did not
want to go back in my body. I was upset and tried not to go back into my
body. And it was painful.
Did you have any psychic or paranormal gifts following the experience you
did not have prior to the experience? Yes If
yes, describe. I already described them above.
Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the Experience?
If yes, describe. Yes, wow, my beliefs have
changed drastically about life, death, the afterlife, dark spirits, heavenly
spirits, compassion, love, forgiveness, etc.
How has the Experience affected your relationships?
Well, as long as I do not tell anyone about it, the experience has not
affected my relationships. But if I do tell anyone about it, they think I am
crazy. Daily life? Religious practices etc.? My
religious practices have changed to the point that I am searching constantly
for answers. Career choices? I started
creating art that was symbolic, yet I do not understand what the art means,
but I am led to do it and I enjoy doing it. It is very abstract art.
Have you shared this experience with others? Yes
If yes, What were their reactions? That I am
crazy. Were they influenced in any way by your Experience?
What emotions did you feel experience following your experience?
Love, peace and compassion.
What was the best and worst part of your Experience?
The not knowing
Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the Experience?
No, but if you have more questions, I would be
more than glad to answer them.
Following the Experience, have you had any other events in your life,
medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?
Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and
comprehensively describe your Experience? Yes,
as best as I could possibly explain this strange experience.
Please offer any suggestions you may have for these questions to help us
understand spiritual spectrum experiences? I am
not trying to be stupid here, but I was hoping you could enlighten me on
what happened to me.
