Seeing My Life As If I Was Dead


Greetings everyone. Today something out of the ordinary happened on an Ordinary day. I have extremely high blood pressure since I was 25 and until recently I was diagnosed Borderline diabetic. In mid December 2009 I had a minor heart attack. I'm about to turn 35, but yesterday Sunday after mass, I went to give blood and was denied due to my BP reading of 166/108. Preoccupied I took my 2nd dosage of the 3 before my regular time. This morning as I was getting my 4 year old in the car, when I became engulfed in a frozen state and started seeing things that would happen when and after I die. I saw my daughter being taken care by my husband & mother. My daughter was going to suffer such sense of abandonment that she will fall in to a deep depression. My neighborhood and the house will remain the same, but without me. Hadn't it be because she screamed my name and shook me I wouldn't have come of out such trance, for a lack of a better word? What was that? I have never experienced such thing. It was an eerie feeling, it took over me filling me with anguish, sadness.

I think it happened because I promised God that I will donate blood every 70 days for a year. Was God sending me a message to take care of myself. Was this a revelation or a punishment for not being able to fulfill my promise?

You should love and fear God more than anthing in the Universe. Stop donating blood, your life is precious. Was your vision a prominent part of your collection of spiritual experiences? If you have more that, say, 20 of these, you may have developed minor psycic abilities.

Dear Alicia,

Allah / GOD is the most gracious, the most merciful and the most forgiving.

He knows your condition... And that your intention was too give blood.

You are doing your best to keep your promise.

Your health is not allowing for you to be able to do this (I agree with what Martin has commented).

He will forgive you... (but you must also ask for his forgiveness for making such a promise).

Allah / GOD does not wish to put people into difficulty.
So take care of your health first.
Try to reduce your stress levels... This is what no doubt is causing the high blood pressure.

In our religion we have to fast for 3 days to expiate ourselves from having broken a promise... And that is for a promise made to another human being.

Stay Healthy...

P.S. In future do not make promises to Allah / GOD as this should never be done light heartedly... Unless you are 100% sure you will keep it. As you will be accounted for it on the day of judgement... And Allah/ GOD forgives much.

blood is sacred, blood is important to us and to be kept well in order to live longer... You know in the bible... Blood is very precious, you have to regret donating your own blood... Donating blood is a mortal sin as it said in the bible...

Hi Alicia,

First of all, we share the same name! Secondly, I, personally, believe that at certain, special times in our lives we are given help and/or direction to keep us on track. Perhaps you just needed a nudge to remind you to take better care of yourself? I, too, had to give up donating blood when I found myself anemic. I waited the recommended 8 weeks between donations, but it wasn't enough for me. As a result, I had to promise my doctor that I would leave the donating up to other people.

Donating of yourself, and your time is a wonderful, beautiful thing. However, we need to remember to keep ourselves safe and healthy in the meantime. I believe this was simply a gentle reminder of that.

Thank you, Alicia, for all that you have done, and will do in the future.

This is an interesting story, alicia, maybe Martin is right, maybe you were shown what would happen if you donate blood when your not healthy enough? There is never a correct answer, but sometimes suggestions can lead to an answer. Have you told anybody since?

Maybe you were told what would happen if you keep giving blood when you're not healthy enough to do so?
