Choice Of Spiritual Experiences

 

I believe we can choose what kind of spiritual experience we want to get involved in. One of the greatest gifts from our creator is free choice! Of course when I was small and I did not know God or hardly anything about Him and certainly I had not made any kind of a choice for Him or against Him, then I was open to bad experiences and for sure I have had them and I have written about them on this excellent web site.

Our experiences will largely depend on whether we are tuned in to good or evil thoughts. There are exceptions to this and one comes to mind immediately. Saint Pio who was the famous Padre Pio of Petrocina of the last century was a really Godly mystic. He was able to bilocate and had the ability to see right into a person's heart. He was even able to predict the future and when hearing the confession of a young priest, Father Carol Woitiwa he was able to tell him that he would reach the highest level in the Catholic Church. He did, as Pope John Paul the second.

Well he had some pretty awful spiritual experiences fighting off the attacks of the Devil especially at night and would be thrown out of his bed in his struggle against evil. You can read all about them on the Internet address below. I think he had to suffer these attacks in his youth because he was going to be used for great things during his long life. Comparable with the 40 days of wilderness temptations of Christ before His ministry began.

He was also able to levitate and there are many accounts of these happenings in his extraordinary life. He also had the stigmata in other words the wounds of Jesus after crucifixion. These were bloody and should have smelled foul but instead had a most beautiful aroma of wild flowers.

Many miracles were attributed to him however he always gave the glory for them to God. This web site will thrill you over the experiences of this extraordinary Friar who died 40 years ago.

Yesterday during Holy Mass and after reading and recording these events on my MP4 player, I was praying with the Host slowly dissolving in my mouth and I was thinking about Padre Pio and I began to notice, faint at first but then stronger whiff of perfume that was really beautiful. It was mixed with incense tho no incense had been burned during the Mass. I turned to my wife and kids and asked them if they could smell it. They couldn't.

How does one check if a spiritual experience is coming from good or evil? I think one of the main ways is to see how it leaves you. If it leaves you depressed and sad then it is pretty obvious it came from evil. It is rather like music. Music that makes me feel good or emotionally stirred to do good is good. If it arouses hatred and warlike tendencies, then it is surely from the evil side. I would be very interested to hear what others think.

Be my guest to comment for or against these ideas of mine and please take the time to check out the web site of Padre Pio.

In the greek orthodox church we have modern day padre pios, too many of them. I met two myself. My jaw dropped to the ground after they miraculously saw into my past present and future... And called me by name! Their names are elder paisios and elder porphyrios. (of greece), now SAINTS! There are numerous best selling books about them, in many languages. Another fantastic book on them: 'THE GURUS, THE YOUNG MAN AND ELDER PAISIOS' by Dionysios Farasiotis. At amazon.com. Breathtaking. Real. A book about God versus satan, and the battlefield is a young man's heart mind and soul... Talk about a cliffhanger! Gulp! Timfaraos [at] gmail.com

Do you know of anyone who has experienced a spiritual type of Stigmata and what it means? It has happened to me. Why would this happen? People with ESP (readers) have seen it on me (spiritually). I have always had an irrational fear of Satan. I never really knew anything about this kind of stuff before this happened. Anyone know why this has happened? Now I channel angels for people. Strange huh?
Thanks so much,
Day

Hi Phoinix!
15 70 what's the difference? Just a few years. Not much in terms of eternity tho.
I think God is pretty obvious. Something, Somebody Some intelligence had to get this show on the road. To think that it all happened by accident is really foolish don't you think? The Bible says that the fool has said in his heart that there is no God. Even Karl Marx the so called great atheist believed in a design. If there is a design there must be a designerQED
However it all began for me when I was about 23 when I asked Jesus Christ to come into my life. I prayed a very simple prayer along the lines of Hey! If you are there, I want you! That was on a railway train some 46 years ago. When I got off the train at London Bridge station I knew something had happened. It was only a beginning and from then on I started to read the Bible. John's Gospel 1st. It blew my mind. It was so different to what I had been taught all my life and I got really turned on and since then with lots of ups and downs it has really gotten better. How is that for starters? Please write again soon and I will try and answer all your questions.
If you like try praying this short prayer with me now. Jesus Christ please come into my heart and forgive my sins and mistakes and fill me with your real kind of love and give me the free gift of eternal life. Thanks Jesus. Amen!

oh and I was also wondering if we could talk about god and other things I don't know what I believe in. I don't understand if god is there or why I was shown how to astral project myself. (ha even thou I'm not that good at it and I'm still mostly in my body when I do get some of my energy to leave) but you seem like a very nice and very spiritual person I would enjoy talking to you very much

hi the only expericne I have gotten is between me and my spiritual mentor... Even thou she ignored me all day cause I made her stay up with me agian last night. I could sense her around at school and even in second hour when I got near her I felt much much better then I did before. I don't know if this is good or evil but you have made me think about it now. Thank you very much.
