No end in sight…

I ask Branelle to keep praying for me. Our hearts are heavy. With no end in sight of this experience ceasing this supernatural challenge is almost more than we can bear. I keep wondering, why is this happening to me? I keep willing it to stop. I do however notice that this journey is not just about me. It’s about the truth of an afterlife. What’s being shown to me is a teaching from our loving Guide. It’s revealing to me just how close the next life is. I have always hoped that heaven did exist. I just never imagined it could be so close to our physical existence.  I now know the beautiful reality of heaven is right here on earth. The veil that stops us from seeing heaven is very thin.  I’m also certain that our core being or soul has never had a beginning and it will never have an ending. We are made in the likeness of our Creator and in doing so we always have been and always will be in existence.

I think back to the previous night and take note of the visions that we’re shown to me. These visions were not all about my life here on earth. Some of them were scenes of someone else’s life. I’m also certain that all these visions when put together form a storyboard, this puzzle will make sense to me at some point on my journey.

We all need more of it – PLAY!! – Part I

Bring your inner child out to play…

We are living in a world that has become inundated with technology. There is a part of me that smiles at all the conveniences we have at our finger tips. But then there is that other side of me that realizes even with all the high tech gadgets we have in our homes, cars, work place, etc we still have lost something even more valuable than time. That is the clarity we gain by having REAL tangible interaction with the people in our lives.

Who can I turn to?

The visions are not something that can be proven by science and that reality has me very nervous. Throughout my life I have learned if science can’t explain an occurrence then it must not be reality.  This thought has me very sad and uncertain about who I can turn to for help. I am also aware of the fact that if mankind can’t put his scientific reasoning and ego aside while dealing with the spirit world I don’t have chance at getting the assistance needed to pull me through this strange yet beautiful state.

6:10 am – April 4, 2013

I’m finding it difficult to sit in one spot for any length of time. My body feels very unsettled and on high alert. I’m noticing the sounds in the house are amplified. The sound of the compressor cutting in on the fridge has startled me, and it sounds much louder than before. I glance out my dining room window to the east. The sky brightens up and a new day is cresting on the horizon. As the sun slowly rises over the field, the colors of the sunrise turn into an artful masterpiece.

Synchronicity – The Divine at Work

The loss of a pet

My newly awakened spirit has been recognizing many strange changes happening in my life both before and after the NDE. One such occurrence took place back in the spring of 2012. I had been spending a couple days in Regina with our daughter. From very little Branelle loved cats. Her affection for these furry creatures has only strengthened with age.

Lessons Learned

I’m feeling that I have just had another lesson taught to me, one that I needed to witness. I belong to the loving Creator and I know that I’m on the right side of life, the good side. Before my NDE experience I really didn’t think that hell could exist. I now know differently. Though 99.9 percent of this entire experience has been good and has come from the heavenly realm, the other .1 percent has been a definite eye opener. Don’t be foolish–hell does exist for those who refuse to accept Gods existence, and who mortally sin and don’t turn to our loving Maker for absolution. I will never question the reality of hell again.

(Continued from Excerpt #8)

I reach under my pillow and find my rosary once more. I start to pray it again in silence. I know Trent needs some sleep, his work day is fast approaching and I have kept him awake for most of the night. I can’t tell him everything that’s happening to me. It’s not fair for me to expect him to understand it all. I don’t understand it. I don’t want to overwhelm him, even though I’m sure I already have. I lay here wondering if I’m going crazy, and just as quickly as that thought enters my mind the angels start to sing again. I now know that I’m not going crazy, this is all so beautiful and holy. I know it comes from our loving God. I’m just struggling with how is it’s possible for me to be in this physical world and also be experiencing the spiritual realm, all at the same time.

The Father – On Earth or Above

The Father – The Son – The Holy Spirit

 

In Christian teachings the Father is the first person of the Trinity and the Divine Creator. I realize that there are many other spiritual teachings on this planet that look at the Creator with a non-gender attachment. I am very empathetic to these beliefs as well. We are all in this world to bring forth love and light;  just because I was raised as a Christian doesn’t mean I have the right to judge other religious ideologies. Through the eyes of the Creator our life path and religious beliefs are subject to the family we were born into. There is no right or wrong with any spiritual teaching that has unconditional love and forgiveness at it’s foundation. We have been born into this life for our soul’s growth. We are here to be of service to one another no matter what beliefs we call our own.

I have never been so sad and felt so alone. I’m very thankful to have Trent and Branelle helping me through this ordeal but unfortunately they really don’t know what all has been taking place in my body, mind and soul. The truth is, I’m worried that if I share too much information with them they will give up on me. I keep praying for their understanding and wisdom. I need their support and help more than ever.
