I was living in Kona, Big Island at the time and my life, at best, was lost. I was married, my 3rd and it was going down faster than the other two. I had always had the Creator as a someone to talk to most my life for advice and times of hardship. At this time in my life I was at an end and didn't for the first time know what to do.
I didn't have the money to move out on my own and, having the 5 little dogs my wife had to have and never took care of, I couldn't get an apartment. I loved those dogs and still take them everywhere I go.
One night at my lowest, lying on the couch I fell asleep, when I awoke it was midnite and there was a power outage. I got up and thought I'd go out and sit on the rocks and listen to the surf. We lived 40ft from the water and the moon was beautiful on the ocean. I walked over and sat on this large flat rock and started asking the Lord Father for advice and opening my heart like never before, I started crying, not remembering the last time I had for it was in my youth.
I told him I would turn myself over to him and be the son that he wanted me to be. No more lying no more cheating, talking bad about others and to live with my wife knowing that I was given her as a great lesson and a mirror for myself.
When I finished I said "Lord Father, it starts Now" and as I hit the rock with my hand a light that look like a large laser beam came from above me and went west over the ocean to the horizon in 2 seconds, it remained over me for about 3 to 5 seconds then the tail followed until it was gone.
I sat there with my mouth open and tears running down my face. About 30 seconds after that I realized that I was in darkness from the power outage and had for some reason a feeling of fear, all the homes being dark. But as soon as I thought that all the light flashed on.
I can say that to this day I have keep my word and its been around 6 years. I read a great book called "Embraced by the light" by Betty Eadie. In it she states to have a near death experience "I saw many lights shooting up from earth like beams. Some were broad lasers beams others resembled the illumination of small pen lights, and some were mere sparks. I was surprised as I was told these beams of power were the prayers of people on earth."
My life is much better and now we live in Sedona Az and many great things have happened since then. I hope to tell some of those stories soon.
