It's so difficult to tell this story to people you just meet because you never know what their reaction will be, "oh she's insane". I love this web site, where I know I'm not the only one that experienced something supernatural. This is real... it's so real.
I was about 15 years old (I'm now 30 but I tell you, it feels like yesterday) and I still shiver when talking about it. I was in desperate need of help. I was crying and felt lonely. Although I'm not religious or anything, I began to pray and ask God for help. Those teenage years were hard.
I'm sitting in front of a small night table with the bible and a lit candle. I remember asking for a sign that God in fact existed, because I felt alone. Suddenly, I got up and blew out the candle and stood there sniffing the dark smoke that it left behind.
As I opened the door to leave the bedroom, a loud but harmonious sound like the ocean but softer surrounded me. I felt this nice soft pressure from behind... like a presence... I can't even explain it. It was nice but heavy in a way. As I turned my face over my left shoulder to look behind, the very strong pressure pushed my face forward. It was a soft pressure because it didn't hurt nor did it feel cold or hot or windy, but just like a pressure but soft. It pushed my face forward and suddenly, from behind me came two basket ball size balls of flaming white bright light. There was one on my right and one on my left. They flew across the hall that was in front of the bedroom, as I stood in the doorway, and behind these amazing bright balls of flaming light, there were rays of white light left behind, as though painted with a paint brush on my walls.
But when they came from behind me, it wasn't just a pressure anymore. Suddenly, my hair flew all over the place but I couldn't feel if the wind was cold or hot, just soft. And I just stood there and stared at the bright balls of fire whooshing beside me fast leaving also a harmonious whooshing, like a soft gentle ocean sound too.
When they reached the very end of the hallway across from me, I heard my sister call me, "Eli"? Suddenly, the balls exploded and I was completely surrounded with white bright light like that of a flash from a camera but even brighter. I couldn't see myself, my hands, body, or anything around me, just bright bright light... oh my God, it was truly amazing. Then, the light shriveled up into nothing and my sister showed up at the other bedroom doorway across from me and asked "what was that... I saw like a bright light... what was that".
I was shocked at what had just happened but surprised that she had seen it too. So I was kind of nervous and asked her to just come over to me and we closed the door of the bedroom. I began to explain to her what had happened and how I was praying and asked God for a sign and suddenly, as I'm speaking to her, I look over to the night table and see that the candle was lit!
It was the message. It was the sign that I had asked for and the bright light. I began to tell my story to my mother when she got home and my mom, being so religious and all, was in tears. I told a few people in church and then that was it. It's just in my heart and memory forever. I'm not even religious and truly, I don't believe in religion so I'm not a fanatic trying to make the world believe. I feel that religion is nice but not for me. It just controls the world and although I did ask God for a sign, I think that all of us have it in us to make such beautiful things happen but we don't know how powerful we really are. If there is a God, yes I received a beautiful sign, but still, it doesn't mean religion is the way to go. All I know is that I had an enormous supernatural experience that I'll never forget.
