Real Spiritual Experiences

A Touch By The Holy Spirit


Not sure why I feel the need to write this out much less share so openly. After all, my experience happened over twelve years ago. I have shared this experience with only a few people who have been close to me or people who I thought needed words of hope where I could not find logical advice to help them in their time of need.

I was 26 years old and had been living in NYC for about a year. Having been born and raised in a small Midwest - blue-collar town, NYC was the potential opportunity to making my claim in life.

On the onset, life was good! The company I worked for put my coworkers and I up in a midtown apartment in NYC. It was like a kid living in Disneyland! I had friends/acquaintances from day one. In such a lonely city of people who long to have friendships, I was good to go. We worked hard and played hard and took the whole city by storm.

The startup business operation was slow, but that was O.K. Why? Simply stated, I met a woman who I believed to be my soul mate. As all relationships begin, I believed she could be the one. I fell hard... She did not!

After a year of living with people you work with and realizing this was unhealthy for business (we were at each others throats) on top of the fact that the girl I was dating moved on... I was lost!

I guess if you can't make it here you can't make it anywhere!

I was at an all time low. In my depression, I pushed everyone away and kept to myself. I was miserable but at the time didn't realize how down I was on life.

One day I didn't know what to do with myself. No one around to talk with and no where to go, I decided to go to church... Every day!

I was raised Catholic and although not a bible thumper, I respected its values and never found hatred or directed anger towards the church as some people recently have found.

I went to St Patrick's Cathedral, which was only a few blocks from the apartment we were living. I would walk around admiring this tranquil masterpiece in the middle of New York Cities pulsating spirit. I would go to the head of the church (behind the main alter) where I would pray with others at the shrine of Mary.

On the fourth or fifth consecutive day of going to St Patrick's, I entered one of the pews on the north side of the church. While mass was going on I knelt down and began to pray.

After I finished my initial prayers, I began to talk to God. No not one of those two way conversations that some people would certify me as psychologically "nuts" just those kind of thoughts about things we need help with or hope for in order to make ourselves and the world a better place.

At one point in this prayer/meditation, I simply said, "God, I can't do this anymore. I can't make any more decisions. I give up! I put my life in your hands."

I wish I could explain this in better detail. Over the last twelve years I've never been able to find the words to communicate the physical and mental experience, which happened after I let go.

Upon letting go, there was a bolt of energy, which began at my toes and rifled upward throughout my body. It exploded out the top of my head like a bolt of lighting. As this "energy" traveled upward it was like every cell in my body was energized. The best I can explain it was like the pins and needles one gets, but this was far from being uncomfortable. The experience lasted probably only a second or two, but after it left my body I was left with this euphoria. Almost feeling like I was floating.

Every pain, every frustration, every mental disparity I had been carrying with me, had been ripped from my being at the singular moment. As I left the church, I had a feeling of clarity, focus, and comfort. All my hate, all my anger, all my desperation was replaced with happiness, love, and sense of hope.

Within two years of this moment, my life had been given the love of my wife and a year later the first of three children. As for the work, the business turned around and all those in the initial startup have done well for themselves.

My prayers were answered!

I wonder has anyone experienced what I felt that day? I'm sure some in the medical community have some neuro/psycho/chemical thing that happened that day... Maybe so/Maybe Not! Regardless... It was amazing! Faith and hope are wonderful virtues.

I accepted Christ when I was 16 - quite a number of years ago. A year later I was 17 praying in church at the alter on my knees after the service. It was quiet and a few people had stayed to worship and sing. I was telling God he could have everything in my life, I was surrendering all to him. I thought somebody took hold of my folded hands but when I opened my eyes, my hands were being opened and lifted by the presence of the Holy Spirit. What felt like liquid love warmly poured through my fingers, arms, head, shoulders and through my entire body. All I could respond was thank you Lord over and over. Every negative emotion, fear and anxiety was replaced by love and peace. It lasted about a 30 seconds or a minute but left me so joyful that laughter would bubble out of me for the next month. I know with-out a doubt it was the Holy Spirit physically telling me how loved I was. It was a physical hug from God wrapping me in his love and goodness. It has never happened again but has given me great comfort in times of doubt and trouble.

Yes I have experiences something similar. I became a born again christian about 30 years ago. I knew I was born again, I saw everything so differently, the bible became alive. Through trials and my flesh I wasn't very close to the Lord for a long while however made a decision this year to serve the Lord fully and I have a new love relationship with him. In my commitment to serving and loving the Lord fully and while I was praying one night the experience I felt was the same as yours however it came from the top of my head down to my toes and it moved so fast. The feeling was utter peace and I just wanted to stay there. It didn't last long either about a minute. Since then I have had it happen a few times when praying however not as strong as the first time.; I'm am absolutely sure its the Holy Spirit and confirmation I am his. What a wonderful beautiful Lord we have and he has loved me and poured his grace out to me when I wasn't close to him for a long time. He has brought me back in a new way and I can say I love him with a genuine love, he is so merciful.

I've experienced this for the first ever time tonight in my apartment. I've been a Christian for four years, yet never experienced a power of peace like this moment I had about half an hour ago. Circumstances have put me at a point where things felt a little bit to much for me. But after praying and talking to my best friend I felt a sudden bolt of peace and felt happy. Because I knew God was saying, I've got this! I've got you! And it's amazing and I've never felt like this before in all the years I've known him. It's made me really open my eyes to knowing that God is all around us, all the time 247

Hi! My mom and I are having this experience at the same time over and over again for the last 2 weeks. We stumbled on these YouTube videos of a man named TB Joshua healing people. I heard the Holy Spirit say, I AM HERE. The man then said time, space and distance are not boundaries. He spoke and it Happened! And kept happening as he laid hands on people. It was like lighting electricity and Love and Grace at the same time. We wept tears of joy and gratitude. It was uncontrollable... My mom literally looked like she was getting electrocuted. All limbs stuck straight out, teeth clenched. I shake uncontrollably. It happens to my mom all the time but it was new to me and not like she's ever experienced. We get tingles but We are both very sensitive to spirits and other entities. This was The Am. Just amazing. God is real.

Hello, I had the same feeling. God is allowing the Holy spirit to show you how love. It is a beautiful feeling. He showed me when I was at my lowest. I never had something like the feeling of electricity but in a good way. I didn't want to stop praying it was for about 30 seconds. I just kept thanking God. I finally had received the Holy spirit. Who can understand the mind of God? Who knows God's ways? I don't fully understand the trinity: the father, the son, & the Holy spirit, but I believe in it. God bless you all. Amen

So used to be a Gravedigger brought up Catholic don't practice religion my experience was October 14th 2:30 in the morning 2007. Hard to explain but I will try. I don't do drugs I am a straight person. Anyway I woke up at 2:30 in the morning I looked around and there was like a floating image in the corner of my room and I was in shock and it started flying around my room whatever it started off like a basketball blob you can kind of see through it then it stretched itself out like a snake and it was black I had a light on in the living room so I could see in my bedroom at the time to me it was an entity from the other side more than likely the old man after spending time many weeks sleeping on my couch. I had another encounter where it was like somebody was talking in my brain and basically I used to smoke and I still smoke but it was like quit smoking so after that I study religion for three and a half years and I'm not religious I'm a spiritual man I studied all religions and in my conclusion there's only one God of all the religions and that is God I've had many encounters with the old man so all I'm going to say is you are a living cocoon waiting to turn into something different there is Red zone the black zone and the light zone these are the areas you might end up in. Take care behave yourself hope you go where you want to go old man's gravedigger PS your dreams are not dreams these are part of you and the other side you might see your co-workers a loved one that has passed away excetera if you concentrate on the verge of sleep look for colors look for movement you need to concentrate and then you might watch yourself crossover end of story take care this is an interaction between the living and the ones that are gone you use your third eye in this process take care also you have to clear your mind you can't think about money personal problems Etc just what you're looking for

I have had this experience of a feeling of a energy taking over my whole body today when I stopped for a moment of silence for Rememberance Day at 11:11am, which I said the Lords prayer for each and every single person who has passed away from war. I felt a strong engery flowing through every part of my body, the hairs on my arms and legs all stood on end. After the few moments of energy had passed, I felt physically drained and tired. My husband looked worried for me, but I said that I am at peace and that my life is going the way it should be. I have experienced this feeling before only twice in my life. When I was a teenager, struggling with depression from alcoholic parents, my friends grandparents prayed over me while I had a violent nightmare. The second time was when I gave birth to my daughter and I was in a lot of pain. My aunt prayed over me and all the negative energy lifted from me like a heavy blanket. I am a very strong believer in the Holy Spirit, and I experience a lot of deja vu, and believe that the Lord is showing me that my life is going in the right direction and to be strong. I was not raised to believe, but my own person experiences have made me a very spiritual person. I thank Jesus everyday for the world and I pray for every single soul in the world every day.

I also had this experience it changed me forever. God first was coming to me in dreams and I would wake up crying telling him I would quit my shenanigans but I had a huge fear of being damned. I would drink to lose the panic attacks of the thoughts. It was the week before the last blood moon and I was terrified. I was dreaming of God saying to stop and trust him that time was Nigh. The last night I drank the following morning I started to have panic again and was going to open a beer but instead heard the spirit tell me not to. I stood crying at the bathroom in full panic knowing I had better heed my warning. I looked at the Jesus drawing my aunt gave me and started to pray. I said God if you want me to quit as I want to also please take it all away. Please father I can't do this any longer I surrender to you all. I give up I need you and without you I can't do this. I felt this electric warm honey feel pierce me. I looked at my arms and the hairs where standing on end. It felt like a rock being thrown into calm water how it rippled through me. It was the most amazing sensation that had me on my knees in joy and it lingered for awhile. I knew I was to grab that 12 pack of beer and toss it. Ever since my panic of years the bad one stole my peace had me gain weight on my small frame with beer and depression. I'm on my way to losing the rest so prayers are greatly appreciated but I can't complain. My life is now wonderful and joyful and I couldn't be more greatful. I now know why I couldn't grasp God even though I thought I loved him before and I tried I truly didn't. I since have been baptized with my husband and life is so great! Praise my Father God Almighty!

Hi I was in my mid twenties when I felt the electricity feeling all over my body. I had been very depressed after being in and out of a bad relationship with a woman so I started fasting and praying having my heart broken I didn't have much of a appetite so I just prayed like constantly for a week or two I still didn't feel completely over her so recalled my cousin telling me how my aunt prayed with him one day and it was a powerful experience for him so I decided to visit her and ask for prayer while praying it wasn't long before I was on the floor crying and this electricity feeling was surrounding my body I could especially feel it in my lips as l lay there on the floor my aunt began to speak a message for the lord he kept calling me his son, I was instructed to read proverbs chapter 5, son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:

2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.

3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.

5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.

6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.

7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:

After reading that I knew I was to leave the woman alone and stay away from her. The experience freed me from the depression and moved on with my life and God has been providing and fulfilling everyday! Praise God

I went through the exact same thing. Started at the tips of my toes and a slow wave of electricity went through my entire body and out the top of my head. I thought I was the only one to experience that until I saw this site. I wrote about it on here.

I experienced the same feeling as the Author. I felt huge energy, electricity coming through all my body. It starts from the toes and goes up. I felt tingling and being energized all over my body. This happens in deep prayer then I'm genuinely seeking God with all my heart. It's like saying Yes, I'm with you, I'm present, I hear you and I love you. I feel so much loved and cared this way. I had before physical pain in my hands for long time. When I experienced Holy Spirit that tingling, energizing feeling didn't left me for 3 days. In that time I didn't felt any physical pain in my hands. I was in prayer constantly. Now I experience it too when I'm praying. It can last for a second.

i just signed up to this site today after reading your story. I had googled "holy spirit experience" because I have found myself in serious want of that manifestation as I had experienced years ago... I will post my own fuller story eventually, but I have to say that I had a similar type of experience, in december of...'07? Shortly before christmas. I was not thinking of anything in particular, just playing darts in the basement and listening to the black crowes... A song came on and the vocals rang out "seeing things for the first time..." he started repeating it over and over, and suddenly every dart I was throwing was hitting the bulls eye, I felt really connected to everything and then WHAM - it felt like something flew into my back and resided within me... I could barely see, I was completely overcome by a feeling so awesome...orgasmic, really... I had to stumble to a support post and fell against it, slid down to the floor and just absorbed the sensations before it subsided to an all-encompassing peace and serenity, clarity and love until - and this is like another's comment - I decided I HAD to share this feeling of love and talk to people about it. The feeling lasted a total of 3 days, I could perceive others' thoughts and feelings, I could feel things physically but could understand it's separateness from the spiritual and the mind... I had spiritual experiences in the past but never anything like that. Unfortunately with the high came a very low depression due to the feeling leaving, which took a very long time to battle - and I sometimes still do. I would be equally curious to hear about anyone else's struggle with the same.

Thank you so much to everyone for sharing your stories and encouragement - it is so nice to go to a place where there are others who can appreciate these types of experiences for what they are.

May God bless you and may you continually seek him in your lives.

I cannot tell you how similar what your saying is to my experinces of the holy spirit. I prayed to god, and simply asked for the conviction of the holy spirit, so I could know I was saved, I have an insane fear of hell, not sure why. After around 5-10mins, I lay there thinking about work tommorow, and I tell you the truth, with in a split second before I could even think about what was going on, a physical energy when from my feet to my head, it was like hot, lighting infused pins and needles, like every part of my body was electricuted in a nice way, it was physical tho, not emotional, like I was burning but in a good way, like buring with out the pain, and with a mix of electricity, and then it left. Sometimes I think I am going mad. Was incredible.

Hello, I am new to this site today and will post my story at some stage, but, right now, I particularly wanted to encourage 'tadge, if he didn't mind. I just wanted to tell you, to not worry so much about 'sin'. You are right that Christ came to wash us clean, so it's important to realise that this process is so normal and natural and the last thing we need is to condemn ourselves because of what we find inside of us. All we need to do is acknowledge our failings one to another (often necessary on a daily basis, hehe) and get on with living. This is an area that I struggled in for so much of my 40 years and am only just coming to grips with this principle of which I am so relieved. Forgiving myself for what I am and have done has been a major step to my freedom and peace. I will struggle with 'sin' (which are just spirits fighting against the spirit that we are, which is Christ; the bible says so!) until the day I leave this existence, but as I have already discovered, it gets easier and easier every year of my walk as I see each area being manifest and cleaned up by God. I have felt abit like a spring that has been slowley unwound to reveal the true me, God. This last year has been my break through after a whole life of utter struggle, thoughts of suicide and trying and failing once, depression, anxiety, illness caused by stress, overactive mind. My God has truly been faithful, bit by bit giving me the tools to straighten out my mind resulting in peace and joy which I have never really known. I Have had many experiences of the holy spirit hitting my body which has bought such a clarity of thought, peace and all the fruits. This does wear off, but only for God to prune again, to make room for more of him so that my times of peace are longer, amen. It's a process that never stops, but once the spirit has hit, there is no turning back. God does not give up even if we feel we do, he is the one whom is failthful and once he starts, he finishes.Anyways...thats my feelings and thoughts on it, God Speed.

I was nineteen years old and my mother begged me to go to Morris Cerullo crusade, I told my mother I didn't want to go, but I loved my mom so I went. I was a trouble teen that had a alcohol and drug problem. When ever I did one, I did the other, and I got into a lot of trouble! My Mom & Dad put me into treatment for alcoholism & drug abuse when I was 17. While I was there they talk about the 12 steps of recovery and talk about God. I had no up bringing of any faith at all. So it was pretty difficult to wrap my mind around something greater, but I was willing to give it a try. That lasted a couple months before I started drinking. I found myself in treatment again, by this time I was living on the streets and had a bleeding ulser and coughing up blood. This time I meant business but again had trouble with the God thing. My mother after the first treatment found Alanon and then found the LORD JESUS, she was Spirt filled, that's when she asked and then begged me to go to see Morris Cerullo. I went and didn't hear much of anything accept at the ending, he said there's a young man in the audience that God has told him to pray for and ask him to come forward, half the men went forward, not me, I was to cool, so he said it again, and a few more went forward, again I wouldn't budge. He did that 3 or 4 times. I wouldn't move, I was afraid someone might see me. So he said, God told me to Pray for you here, and then I felt what you were describing, I felt this energy flow through me that no drug or booze ever allowed me to feel, I was crying with tears of joy, I had the biggest smile, and my whole body was tingling! I was sold, I went foward then and they gave me a handbook for a change life. I left there and tried to stop everything, drugs, drinking, smoking, chewing, cussing, lusting. I failed miserably, it only lasted a couple of weeks before I thought what the use. I can't quit sinning. I missed it, That is why JESUS came here in the first place, to wash away our sins with HIS blood. I may still struggle with sinning, but I'm not in denial of GOD existence and LOVE!

The following is copyrighted to Carl Garrett because it's in a book I've written for which I am pursuing publication.

I experienced being filled with the Holy Spirit in February 2010, about 1.5 years ago. It happened during a moment of surrender, when I had decided I would no longer hold any of my heart back from God. I was faced with a familiar temptation two times in a row, several days apart. And I prayed to God, right there on the spot, both times, for His power to help me to not fall into that temptation again. As soon as I finished that short prayer, all of a sudden I felt a warmth that started at the top of my head and began moving slowly down my body all the way to my feet. An amazing love and joy immediately welled up inside of me, inside my heart, and my eyes teared up. It was totally unexpected. As the warmth was traveling down my body headed towards my feet, when it got to my hands, I turned my hands over and I looked at both of my palms. And immediately, the very first thought that occurred to me was "I HAVE to tell somebody about this; I can't keep this Love to myself any longer. I have to tell somebody, anybody, about Jesus, and soon!" I knew I could no longer keep silent about how much God loves me and how much He loves everyone else, too. Since that day, I've shared the Gospel with over 600 people in the last year and a half. For the past year I've been writing a book to describe what God did in my life and what He revealed to me. I wrote the following webpage to describe it: Please read it. May you experience all of His amazing love.

I couldn't really verbalize what I felt, as I still can't be clear as to what exactly happened to me.
I wrote this to my sister a day after the healing, 'I was enlightened. I had God touch my shoulder to tell me it's ok. God and I spoke. I told him thank you. We were laughing. God took away all my pain. He healed my heart, my ulcer, the fog in my thoughts. I wanted to give God my heart. I saw the light. I felt love all around me. I surrendered my body to God. I was in Nirvana.'

Beautiful. All I can say it was a beautiful experience and I wish it upon all beings. I feel highly blessed and I am grateful.

I was going through a rough time--a break up with someone I was heavily involved with. Ever since the break up, I clung to the cross and sought God actively.

One day, I was driving to get a haircut, feeling extremely sad and "words" hit me. God said "Give me your pain, anxiety, and burden and let me carry it for you".

For the next 5 to 10 minutes I couldn't stop laughing. I felt no pain, no anxiety, no burdens from anything. I was just laughing and laughing and smiling from pure joy.

Dear Dfrank:

What you described in great detail that happened to you happened to me in high school! It was a very dark time in my life, and I was an isolated sinner... Nobody but me and God and satan knew about what I was into. One of the last days of my senior year, I was just so overwhelmingly depressed, and I told my mom I didn't feel well enough to go to school. She knew how much I hated high school, so she didn't try to persuade me to go. I went in my room and I just cried and wept and apologized to God. I repented of everything in weeping desperation, and confessed that I was scared of where this road would take me, that I had tried to stop doing what I was doing, but that I was powerless... That I needed Him, and only He could save me. At that moment, I felt this warm, loving energy rush over me, and it started in my feet and moved all the way up through the top of my head. As it was moving through me, it was cleansing me of all my shame, darkness, and depression! And when it left the through the top of my head, I only wept with gladness and awe! It was such a beautiful moment, one I can barely describe with words. I absolutely believe it was the Holy Spirit... And ever since then, I have never doubted that my name is written in His book.

will you cry if you have been touche by the holy spirit? Because I never cried. I feel so weird. Everyboy's crying and I'm not. Is it because I'm not sensitive to the holy spirit?

Often, when all things in our lives are going right but we live without God as our priority, He will get our attention by "cutting us off at the knees" so to speak. You think you have lost everything, and are so sad and desperate, that you turn to Him for comfort or answers. He is waiting for you to turn to him... While some already live with God as their priority, others are blind and need to hit rock bottom in order to get to know God. This happened to me in late 2008. God has taken over my life and provides for me in ways that make me more confident in Him everyday. I have dreams of Jesus, dreams of the Holy Spirit coming to me. Last night, I felt the Holy Spirit's light and warmth, with eyes closed, I could feel and see the warmth and comfort of his brilliant light.
This world is only temporary. We've got to repent and prepare for the afterlife. We cannot stop sinning entirely... It's human nature. When you sin, repent immediately. Pray, and praise God. Read the Bible every day. Know He is near and ready to guide you. I hope that everyone takes the opportunity to let God take control of their lives. He won't do your chores for you, or buy you a new car, but he will give you what you need to move on the path He has planned for you.
Be Blessed, everyone. See you on the other side.

Jay, praise the Lord for you. This has shook my world! It's only been 3 or 4 weeks since I last wrote. God is working! I had another experience tonight. I was talking to the Lord... Not really praying but just thanking Him again for that experience. Then I did ask and commanded in the name of Jesus to heel my back... I kept on believing with my heart and soul... Everything completely in His hands and I saw through a little window I was looking out of with eyes lifted for heaven a beam of bright light just shot through to me and just covered my whole body. After a few minute S I sob with excitement and euphoria. My second time with in weeks of each other. I am still shaking and so happy that I had to write. I think He is working hard to get His people back what with all of the earthquakes,tsaomis,volcanos and the world news and especially with spirit of our Lord, Jesus Christ touching us through the Holy Spirit in us to recieve such a gift. He is totally awesome!

Until now I am still overwhelmed of the experience It was two days ago. We are inside a room, together with my church leader and a mentor. It was actually a two day event at our church. We were worshiping Jesus at that moment. Then, in midst of our worship, a hot white flash of light hit my eyes. It was so hot that I moved my face and opened my eyes. When I looked at my church leader and mentor, they are both praying and eyes closed. I even thought, it was one of them who actually did it. Like, putting a flashlight really really close to your eyes that you feel the heat of the bulb. THe only difference was, with a flashlight, when you opened your eyes, you are like seeing a black spots everywhere and the light is not a pure white since you had your eyes closed. But that light I saw is different, a pure white, and in a split second, it's a hot one. I never told them this until this afternoon and they are both amazed. That's why I tried searching for related experiences and I saw this post. I am actually a struggling Christian. Due to sins. And this experience would definitely change my life forever.

I've felt this before and long for God to do it again. Euphoria is the only word that I can explain for such a feeling. It happened again last night as I was praying. I thanked Him for loving me so much and that I loved Him with all of my heart and soul. I praised Him and knew that He was coming soon and I should be ready for Him as a bride awaiting the wedding day. I again felt this over-whelming rush of love that just takes over your whole body with rushes and rushes of love and sereness, I didn't want it to leave so I kept praising His Glory and It was beautiful. Tears rolled down my eyes and pillow. I've talked about it all day and probably will forever. I can't wait until tonight. Much Love to you All brothers and sisters. God Bless You, Em

I had a similar experience twice in 2009. The first one occurred during that time when I was having relationship troubles. After months for anger and depression, I cried and prayed and submitted everything to God. At that moment, I felt a sudden rush of cold sensation all over my body. I described it to my friends as "like a really cold shower during an extremely hot day in the desert". It was incredible. That cool feeling lasted for a moment but from then on, I just learned to trust God more and more.

The second experience was a little different. It happened about two weeks after my mom suddenly passed away. As I was in the car on my way to work, I kept thinking about my mom, trying to make sense of her sudden departure and trying to understand that I (who's the only one working in our family besides my mom) now had to take care of our family's finances. I was 26 y/o, single, and up until that point, never really cared about anyone else but myself. Now, I suddenly had to share my income with my dad, two brothers, a sister and a nephew. I prayed that God would give me that heart to get used to this new arrangement. As I prayed in the car, I suddenly understood that this was exactly God's purpose for me - to take care of my family the way that my mom did; to share what I had the way that my mom did. I realized that I now lived for other people and no longer for myself, and felt ashamed of how selfish I had been all my life. At that moment, a bright light flashed in front of me, like the flash of a camera. I was crying, perhaps out of joy. At that moment, I felt that I finally found my place and began to understand what I was meant to do. I felt really calm, a kind of peace that I had never ever felt before. Like my heart finally rested. To this day, I have that peace in my heart. That peace has even vanished the urge to drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes or other substances which I was formerly dependent upon. Nothing short of incredible:)

I had similar experiences - 7 of them. Happend once a month, and sometimes skipped a month. It was the best feelings I had in my entire life.
It happened around midnight, in a dreamstate, but I awoke afterwards. Also felt like electrical currents flowing through my body. Last date was 4th of July 2009 - while it was happening, I was driving out demons in the name of Jesus Christ,and
The demons were gone. I awoke afterwards. Evertime the feeling was so good, I did not want it so stop.
