Just Another Vision From God

My road to Catholicism stage one: Just Another Vision From God
In my post Foraging Squirrel, I talked about having a “vision from God – that was kind of like the Blue’s Brother’s but without the back flips.” It has been fifteen years since my vision and I am only now comfortable with calling it that. I know it was not a dream or a hallucination and I wasn’t on crack because crack is wack.  I simply had a vision from God. As it turns out, visions from God are common enough that I’m really not that special for having one. People have experiences like mine all the time  all over the world, we just don’t tend to talk about them for fear of being ridiculed or maybe we just don’t understand them yet. For me it was both. For fifteen years I didn’t mention my vision to anyone other than my mother and my husband. My mother cried and thanked Jesus and my husband gave me a little “that’s nice dear- I love you- even though I think you are insane” pat on the shoulder.  What is insane to me now is that I was able to ignore God for so long afterward even while being strengthened and sustained by the memory of my experience. This is what happened: I layed down on my bed to rest after work. I heard a loud roar very similar to what a tornado sounds like as it barrels down on you. I felt myself being pulled out of my body and I realized I had left it. I was surrounded by a cloud of light and at it’s center was a glowing white sphere,  like a sun, white hot, it burned brighter than anything I have ever seen.  I was enveloped within an intense, profound love so strong and pure it was almost too much to handle. I realized there were others around me and that the light was calling to them. I watched as their ethereal bodies went into the light. I then felt it call to me, pulling my soul. I got scared and pulled back, rushing back into my body where I lay paralyzed and breathing as if I had just run a marathon.

Although I was able to ignore what happened for so many years, I never forgot how that love felt and never stopped wanting it back.

My road to Catholicism stage two: Gambling on Salvation. Do I feel lucky? Well do ya punk?

  1. Love,love ,love your joy,it radiates to all of us who have felt the Light. Your writing is beautiful! I’m looking forward to following your journy! How brave you are!

  2. Wow, whether or not such experiences are common place (and I’m praying they will be!) this is extraordinary and I can tell how much it touched you. I also have visions from God quite often, but not on the level you experienced – sounds to me more like an out-of-body encounter! God bless; I KNOW Jesus is excited about everything He has in store for you!

    1. I was thinking it may have been an out of body experience too. Do you talk about your visions on your blog? I would love to hear more about them. Have a wonderful day!

      1. Well, my “God by Dockside” blogs serves more as a creative outlet (often influenced by my experiences with God) but as for actual visions, I do share them on my personal blog: “Falling up” (@ sonnyside1up.wordpress.com).
