M B's Experience

Experience description:   

Exhausted from mourning the sudden death of my husband, I decided to rest after eating lunch.  I sat in his chair and as soon as I raised my legs into the reclining position of the chair, I felt a high pitched type to vibration or frequency in my calves.  It was as if my bones were vibrating something like a tuning fork.  Sensing this was not something to be afraid of, I said, possibly out loud, “I won’t be afraid”.  I actually helped move the vibration up my legs.  As it moved up my body, the high-pitched sound of this vibration became louder.  When the vibration reached my chest, I knew that I had to “open the doors” of my chest cavity.  I purposely allowed the chest to open -- as if it were enclosed behind two large oak doors.  At that very moment of knowing, my chest was raised as my back arched, the sound became even louder, and then a wide ray of white light connected me/my chest to the heavens.  At this moment I don’t recall the sound being there anymore.  As I’m arched in the recliner, breathing very heavily with some difficulty, I look up to my right and I see the profile outline of Jesus, who is very far away (but not small as normal human perception would have it) , but who is seriously looking down and watching the being who is in front of me.  His being appears to be a woman, as she had her hair in a bun.  This being was only inches from my face, and I could only see the left side of her face.  I did not know her.  I simply said, “What’s the message”.  She looked directly into my eyes and gave me the message in my mind, “stop smoking”.  At that moment, my back was no longer arched, the room became dimly lit with daylight peeking in through the blinds, and I smiled…seeing a reflection of light on the ceiling that was knowingly my husband smiling at me.  I Immediately felt he had something to do with all of this - and then I was filled with the message to go see the priest, Father Emmanual, who presided over my husbands memorial service at the funeral home.  I did and the priest was really happy when he realized I wasn’t asking him for anything…that I only wanted to say thank you for the service.

Nothing about life has been the same since.  My last cigarette was 6 months later.
