Amazing Flaming Light


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.

This really was a supernatural thing as even your sister saw it. It was the Uncreated Light of God mentioned in the old writings. The fact that it did not bring you closer to your Church does not mean anything. Temples are built by humans and subject to time. Religious communities, as any other kind of tribe or convention of man, are subject to time. Who knows whether christianity really will exist until End of Time? There have been so many religions on Earth which have completely disappeared.
The Divine, however, is beyond time. This is why there will always be disappointment in those who had a glimpse of the Divine and then try to find something similar in their church or temple... Many of them even get rejected by their Community - The Lord Jesus Himself was such a case.
Keep in your heart that GOD IS. That He/She is MORE REAL THAN WE ALL ARE. All things in our world where time reigns are but shadows as compared to the Reality of God. And keep the Golden Rule as Jesus told us. That's all you need.
You may visit any temple, sing any hymn known to Man no matter if it addresses God as Jesus, or as Krishna, or whatever, and talk with people of any religion in order to learn, or to hear interesting things about God, His miracles and His saints, but these two things are the core of it all. You may also reject all organized religion and refuse to do spiritual practices or rituals whatsoever but if you keep those two things alive you have what is needed for a soul to move toward God.

Dear Elizabeth,

It is a wonderful story and experience to have had you have been blessed.

Allah /GOD has proved to you of his existence.
So that you continue to worship him only.

The white balls of light were definately his angels (as they are created out of pure white light) who allowed you to see that they were present.

When we pray and remember Allah /GOD angels surround are always near. As they inform Allah / GOD that you have remembered him.

No, sweetheart, "religion" is not the way to go, but "a personal relationship with Jesus Christ," is. There's a BIG difference. Surrender to HIM and ask him into your heart, and you'll know he is real... He loves you, and wants you as his child,(but you must ask him in); it's "a choice" we each have to make, and will be the deciding factor where you will be spending eternity.

That is beautiful -- it sounds like your 2 guardian Angels -- one type of Angel has fire and wind associated with it.
