I believe that my experience started with prayer during extreme grief. The sudden death of my 14 year old son was too much for my heart to take. I could not bear the pain, so I handed it to God. I prayed every day for God to absorb the intense pain that I was feeling. I simply asked to be held through this process, help me to deal with the pain and guide me through a path of healing.
This is still very raw for me- my son has only been gone for a little over three months.
I started to have some unusual experiences while I was sleeping. I was being enveloped by a violet colored light ( it looked like a ribbon of smoke). On a few occasions it would be green or white. I could feel an energy go through my head down through my body right before the light would enter my field of vision.
I had three religious visions. Very long and complicated to write here.
After this I could feel spiritual visitation from my son. I knew he was around by an energy I could feel go through my body ( starting at my head).
I tried to discuss this with my husband. He really did not want to hear me. He had his own way of dealing with his grief . I felt the need to help my husband understand what was going on with me and I sensed that my son wanted him to be more open spiritually. I will mention that my husband it a detective sergeant in the police department very intelligent and logical.
I asked my son to help me help his father. For some unexplained reason I felt that if I video taped or took photos around me when I felt his energy that he would be there.
His spirit shows up in every single video as a pure and very bright light source either in orb form or as a concentrated light ( tiny ) his light travels in a consistent pattern. I have two videos where the light is trying to manifest into form. The others are all similar , but in different locations throughout my home, outside or a relatives home .
I cannot explain why or how this is happening. I can tell you that these visual sightings bring a sense of peace and healing. I have shown my husband. He does not understand it, nor can he explain it. I have made videos with family members as witnesses and it is very emotional to experience.
I feel like this is a gift from my teenage son. Just letting us know he is around at times watching over the family.
There is much more that I have to say but again too much for this space. I would be happy to send some video footage that is remarkable to say the least.
