There were 2 within
about a 2 week period. Both occurred while I was driving singing praise to God
and basically feeling really good.
The first occurred as
I was entering an off ramp from the turnpike it lifted me approximately 500 feet
above the truck judging from my view of both the truck and its surroundings. It
lasted approximately 30 seconds judging by how far the truck traveled as I was
viewing. Three things went thru my mind in this time .
God who's driving the
truck was first next was am I like out of here and third was what's my family
going to do without me. All of which was pretty freaking scary at the time. I
immediately found myself back behind the steering wheel totally shocked but yet
extremely peaceful and relaxed spent the rest of the day doing my job and
wondering if I had gone over the freaking edge and should have my self
The second time was a
week or two later on the turnpike singing feeling good about a half mile or so
out from a toll plaza this time I seemed to feel it coming and just let go and
let God sort o speak .I found myself above the truck same as the first time with
a great view and my thought was kind of like ok God I'm here what next cause I'm
not in control and loving every second of this. About 30 seconds to a minute
later I was back in my body coming to a stop in the plaza and the girl taking
tolls goes weak in the knees and almost faints as I hand her the money she says
you looked so peaceful you almost made me faint. I was in shock couldn't even
speak just kind of gazed at her and hit the gas.
Second time I was more like looking skyward and outward didn't really care
where I was anymore.

spiritual level in a biblical sense I would consider it an anointing of God. It
has changed my life in that spiritually I'm no longer bound religiously by a
book but rather spiritually by God. These experiences left me seeking for weeks
afterwards to the point of exhaustion. Physically the only thing that occurred
in the weeks prior to and following these events was twitching of my muscles as
they begin to do again as I recount this . In the days prior to and following
this twitching was constant and visible mostly at both temples and in both arms
and sometimes in the legs .
Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life,
medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?
