Mark F's Experience

Experience description:   

THE COMFORTER

I came home from work last July and found my son in bed, he had overdosed.

When the firemen and ambulance arrived it was a horrible scene, their faces and words said it all and they tried to keep me out of the room. I knew what they were thinking. Upon arriving at the hospital Kevin was so critical they took over all of his life functions. He had aspirated and his lungs were infected,  they warned me he could pass at any time. It was a total disaster. His oxygen was extremely low and he had been home alone all day, no one knows how long his brain was starved for oxygen. So I turned to my father, Jesus Christ. I turned to him right early,  there could be no other place to go with this.

The Doctor:

She was constantly telling me that Kevin was not showing any sign of hope, she was pushing me to give up. She wouldn't quit pushing me no matter how hard I tried to get her to stop. I kept telling her that the signs she needed to see would come but she kept after me. She was doing this one day and I turned to her and asked her "are you a god"? She said "I'm so sorry". But she misunderstood what was happening. I looked out the door into the ICU and said this place needs a miracle. I turned back and said “I am in charge in this room and I am the only one who decides what to do with my son”.  God was being denied in Kevin's room and it sent a vibration out to the heavens and shook the universe. 

 I took leave at work and spent every day with my son. I took care of him and talked to him all day. I would go home at night and pray and talk to Kevin from home never doubting he could hear me. I laid out just exactly what he meant to me. I prayed for what was best for Kevin, if it was too beautiful where he was I understood this and we would be together again when I joined him upon leaving the earth. My family was  worried about me if Kevin should die. I couldn't have my family suffer like that so I let my mother know I would make it, I could do this through Jesus.  It is hard to tell someone that you will be ok even if your child perishes from your life. You just don’t want those words to ever come, but I had to say it and it was true because of Jesus. 

The Star field;

About the 7th day I was going to bed when I had a vision. It was very short in duration and it was a rectangular star field and it was gone as quick as it started but I knew what it said. It said that they were working hard on Kevin, they were very busy. It was just like looking into the night sky but the lights were a communication which I understood instantly. I told my family the good news.  

Treatment/The Rules:

About the 10th day I came home late after leaving the hospital ICU. My brother was staying with me and was still up. We talked about Jesus and faith and the last thing I said to him before retiring was a thing Jesus had said, it was this: If you have but the faith of a mustard seed you  could move a mountain. Words mean things and these were not just words to me, I believed these words. When I shut the bedroom door and went to my bed I was gently pushed to lie down.  The star field returned except this time it was all I could see like an entire night sky. The first thing that happened was there was a voice exclaiming "Kevin is coming back", this kept repeating until they reached me.  Now I was somewhere else, I was there where this was happening. I was gasping for air as I said "yes please bring Kevin back" and the thing proceeded on. I was told it would be very hard for me, they kept telling me this and I said yes I will do anything, I was gasping for air like I was having a heart attack or something. They read parts of my favorite Psalms and I read them back. I was read what I call "the rules". They were all thing that they knew what my answers would be and I said yes to all. They kept telling me that this power was only to be used for Kevin, I said only Kevin, not even a grain of sand but only Kevin. I promised with all my heart.  They said my heart was pure and I cried out "my heart is pure”.  At no point was I ever told that more was to happen, the thing just proceeded on. 

The Purple Blanket:

All of a sudden I was made to look to the left. It was there that I saw a blanket being pulled up over a bed. There was no bed so it was just a purple blanket being pulled over an invisible bed smoothly and mechanically. Behind this was ornate dark wood wall and it was very dark. As the blanket started up the bed I said "Oh my god Jesus is pulling a blanket over me".  As the blanket went up the bed it was coming up over me and it engulfed me in the most comfort I could ever imagine.

It was warm and filled my entire being with comfort. It stopped at my neck and stopped going up the bed simultaneously.  I started to say,  what is going on here,  but was cut off in mid-sentence because my head was then turned back to looking straight up again (I was lying down).  The second I was looking up again this is what happened. Wham... something grabbed me and held all of me, it shimmered and vibrated and held me with what felt like magnetism, it was attached to me and we were together. It resembled six translucent rectangular blocks stacked two on two long ways up, so it was three blocks high, they looked similar to the glass cube walls you used to see a lot in doctors' offices. I said… "Oh my god Jesus you came to see me?”  Gasping for air I said "but there are millions of people in the world and you came to see me?” I was lying in awe and I started to ask..."why are you here?" but was cut off because right then the treatment started. My whole being was charged with an electrical feeling and a feeling of paralysis and indescribable comfort. As quick as it started it was finished and I was released and the higher power left me. 

After The Treatment:

After the treatment I was shown flashcard snapshots of events leading up to the treatment. I was shown many other things as well. I can't tell it all here but I want to tell some of it. I was shown a vision with a portal way off in the distance and there was someone or something there holding it open, I thought it was probably my mom but it wasn't. I was shown all of the prayer for Kevin coming from earth, it was a vision from the east coast looking west across the country and the prayers were spotlights shining individually but joining together with some reaching higher than others and looking like a 3D bar graph of sorts. I had prayer groups praying for Kevin all the way to Texas. I sent emails every night telling everyone of Kevin’s status.   

Two neurosurgeons had told me Kevin would never even babble a word again, he would never recover. They said their tests showed "the peaks are low and the speed is slow" and then they pulled his eyelids open and saw that his eyes were rolled back and that was it, they had seen it before and he was finished without a doubt.  I was shown the Neurosurgeon as I looked down onto the ICU where Kevin was, he was moved over like a chess piece right out of the picture. I don’t believe in them, never did.

 I was shown many people who were blessed and I was shown that the doctor who gave up on Kevin would be treated in some way which we already found to be true. 

As I was lying in bed recovering it was told to me who the angels were that came for Kevin. It was my grandparents and other souls from our family and Kevin’s grandparents. I couldn't believe that this didn't occur to me, why wouldn't it be my family? Then I knew my father was there and I thanked all of them while crying with joy. As the night went on every question I asked was instantly answered and I would repeat the answer and thank them. Should I go see Kevin now? No was the answer. Will I have to do anything special to wake Kevin up? No was the answer and this went on and on.  

 

Caress:

As I was laying on my back I realized I was rubbing my right chest with my left arm, I realized this was weird because I would have thought I would rub my heart with my right arm if I was comforting myself. Then I realized I wasn't doing the rubbing, they were caressing me. This went on for some time as I lay there asking questions and recovering from the treatment. They told me to go to sleep that night but I was up all night. One stayed with me for a long time, they didn’t say goodbye so I don’t know when they left.

 

Kevin Now:

Kevin blazed through recovery amazing everyone. The story is long and filled with love, family and miracles. Kevin is about to get his G.E.D. and is learning to walk. He has full memory of his life. He remembers some strange things but not the treatment.  Kevin suffered hearing loss, they say from antibiotics but again, I don't think the healing is finished. The end of this story is not yet written. The lord will decide when the healing is done. Our love is our grace.  My son has blessed me and everyone who cared for him, Jesus changed many lives through him. 

I don't know why I was blessed to be part of Kevin's treatment. I don't know what was happening with the blanket, I think it was being pulled over Kevin at the same time as me. I don't know if I was treated or if Kevin was treated through me or what happened. I could never have imagined this thing that happened.

Looking back I am so amazed at how this was precisely orchestrated for us. It may sound silly but I picture the power I met treating untold numbers of people in a night around the planet. The power came and it was nothing for it to put back what was undone in the accident, he made it all to begin with. The impossible became not so in an instant. But it wasn’t an instant healing but rather he lit a fuse in Kevin with each part of his being coming back in divine order.  

My brother was just outside my room during this entire episode and never heard a peep.

I was there on my bed gasping for air, my cat was there lying on the foot of the bed undisturbed. I don't know how this happened or where I really was or how long it took. I was lying down at times and then sitting cross-legged and bowing down to Jesus. I was crying and gasping but my brother knew nothing, I even heard him walking past my door several times.

I was told to stay in my room for the night telling no one anything. 

I love you Jesus! 

Mark

At the time of your experience was there an associated life-threatening event?   Yes  My son overdosed. I was being pushed by my doctor to give up, just days from the accident. Nuerosurgens told me he was brain dead and there was no hope. It was because his situation was so bad, they had no hope.

Was the experience difficult to express in words?  Yes     It is impossible to explain the communication, how clear everything was communicated with no words. And how quickly communication happened. It is hard to express the beauty of the treatment and how it was.

I can't express how I knew what the lights (stars) in the starfield communicated to me because I don't know. It was also telepathic.

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?    When I entered the place where this happened.

How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal everyday consciousness and alertness?      More consciousness and alertness than normal   I had to be alert with this happening, I reached a new level of consciousness, I was in a different place.

Please compare your vision during the experience to your everyday vision that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.
   Same

Please compare your hearing during the experience to your everyday hearing that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.
   Same

Did you see or hear any earthly events that were occurring during a time that your consciousness / awareness was apart from your physical / earthly body?   No  

What emotions did you feel during the experience?   Extreme joy, shock, extreme love, disbelief, thankfullness.  

Did you pass into or through a tunnel?   No  

Did you see an unearthly light?   No  

Did you seem to encounter a mystical being or presence, or hear an unidentifiable voice?   I encountered a definite being, or a voice clearly of mystical or unearthly origin
I can't describe the voice that talked to me other than it was a male voice. I could never describe it but it was mans voice.

Did you encounter or become aware of any beings who previously lived on earth who are described by name in religions (for example: Jesus, Muhammad, Buddha, etc.)?   Yes   I met Jesus. I called him Jesus because I knew him. I later call him a higher power because I am not saying I met Jesus. I just know what I said when I was held and it is written in the narrative as I said it. I knew it was Jesus pulling the blanket over the bed, you don't ask questions in one of these things you just know many things.

Did you encounter or become aware of any deceased (or alive) beings?   Yes   After the treatment I was told who the angels were. They were spirits from my and Kevin's family. I am not clear exactly who they said were there except my grandparents and Kevin's granparents. I may have been told more but I am not sure. I can't imagine the joy felt by all at the love here on earth. They set up the treatment, they beseeched the lord for us.

Did you become aware of past events in your life during your experience?   Uncertain  

Did you seem to enter some other, unearthly world?   No

Did time seem to speed up or slow down?   Everything seemed to be happening at once; or time stopped or lost all meaning
I had no sense of time. I remember looking at my clock but it didn't register to me. It seems like I was kept from understanding how long any of this took.

Did you suddenly seem to understand everything?   Everything about the universe
After the treatment I was in a state of knowing, I understood everything in a new way for several months. I could see intricate things and knew more why animals did what they did. I would go home from the ICU to my house and watch all of my problems set with the sun. I knew the frogs and crickets were singing for joy for me and Kevin. Gravity was not a weight anymore but rather it was the only thing keeping me from rising into the heavens. I didn't have a bad thought for over a month.

I knew that time was racing ahead but I felt like I was keeping up better. I wasn't reacting as much and had more control.

During your experience, did you encounter any other specific information / awareness that you have not shared in other questions that is relevant to living our earthly lives?   No  

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge or purpose?   Yes   I knew that the entire universe had to be nudged and it was nudged in the most gentle way for Kevin. The universe never does anything that is not in it's best interest. I knew how it was everyone that helped Kevin who made the miracle possible.

What occurred during your experience included:   Content that was entirely consistent with the beliefs you had at the time of your experience   I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe in what Jesus promised me. There is something that has never been made more complicated through the years and is available to anyone, anywhere and at anytime. No one can take him from you and no one can occupy any space between you and him ever. Jesus.

How accurately do you remember the experience in comparison to other life events that occurred around the time of the experience?   I remember the experience more accurately than other life events that occurred around the time of the experience   I can still see it all clearly.

Discuss any changes that might have occurred in your life after your experience:   Where would I start.

My experience directly resulted in:   Large changes in my life

Did you have any changes in your values or beliefs after the experience that occurred as a result of the experience?  
Yes   I try to be pure in all of my actions and dealings with others. All my decisions are based on Jesus. Infractions seem costly.

Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you?   The Purple Blanket. I believe it was being pulled over Kevin at the same time as me. It sounds like a dull scene but it was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen and felt. But I still don't know what happened and no one told me. There are so many things I wish I had asked of them but that is not what happened. I believe Jesus was at Kevin's room at the ICU and I just can't imagine the beauty of what happened there.

Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience?   Uncertain   I think so.

Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you?    
The Purple Blanket. I believe it was being pulled over Kevin at the same time as me. It sounds like a dull scene but it was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen and felt. But I still don't know what happened and no one told me. There are so many things I wish I had asked of them but that is not what happened. I believe Jesus was at Kevin's room at the ICU and I just can't imagine the beauty of what happened there.

Have you ever shared this experience with others?  
Yes  I shared it right away. I couldn't talk without stuttering for a couple of weeks and actually thought I might not talk right again.

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience?   Yes   I knew of them. It took a while for me to understand that I had a NDE since I wasn't aware of the scope of NDE's.

What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:   Experience was definitely real  

What do you believe about the reality of your experience at the current time:   Experience was definitely real  

Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?   Yes   My son and I are together again. He suffered through things no child should have to growing up. His mother is in prison. I had lost him because I had to work and he was doing bad things. We need to pray for our kids as they navigate this mess of a world.

We are together again. My love for my son is like nothing else on the planet. I have always wanted the best for him, even while he was sick.

Have your religious beliefs/spiritual practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?   No  

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience?   No  

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience?   If you are sick God is in control. I knew more about Kevin than the doctors did. We controlled the medicine, we had the breathing tubes removed when Kevin chewed them and bent them, even shutting down his breathing. After shutting down his breathing we posted a 24 hour watch until they put in a Trach. When he was trying to cough out the Trach we made them wean him off it...they blamed everthing on the brain injury but it was Kevin coming back from his head and mouth first.

Don't give up, be the best advocate you can for your loved one. Pray at their bed for them like so many did for my son. We all did it together. Jesus will bring a Comforter in a while.

Did the questions asked and information that you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?   No   There are a thousand words in every word. It could never be comprehensively described. There were so many miracles that happened to me and my family through this.

Kevin's first words to me were " I love you" and "I'm sorry". But there was nothing to be sorry for, it was an accident. Kevin started talking to everyone on his birthday, we knew something big would happen that day. My brother and I met angels in the ICU waiting room one night. All of the things that were done to make the road straight and the ground fertile for this miracle to happen are many.

The lord put me under his wing and kept me safe ahile Kevin was sick. I love Jesus Christ.
