Real Spiritual Experiences

Holy Spirit At Praise In The Pub


On my campus we have an event on Wednesdays called Praise in the Pub. We gather in the pub on campus and have an hour of worship, usually with a speaker somewhere in the middle. I go every week and I have often felt the presence of the Holy Spirit during worship. But tonight was different.

I'm not entirely sure how to describe what I felt. It was an overwhelming emotion, like I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. It welled up inside me until I thought I might burst from the energy. I've felt this before, so though it excited me, it did not suprise me. But what happened next was weird. We were praying and I felt this... Force I guess, pressing against my back. I'm not sure exactly how to describe what it felt like, but it was pushing me forward. It wasn't like hands on my back or anything, just a kind of force. And it wasn't harsh or demanding, just a kind of gentle pushing. It was so strange, I had to physically stop myself from either stepping forward or falling down. When we finished praying the feeling passed. We sang our last song and I drove home. Since I have had just the most wonderful sense of peace, like a very tangible knowledge that God is everything I could ever need and so much more.

I feel like the Spirit was trying to tell me something. Like I'm supposed to move forward, to do something, I'm just not sure what. I guess I'll have to keep praying about it and see. Has anyone ever felt something like this before?

The Holy Ghost was upon you. I have felt this in my feet, like I couldn't control. He's wanting to enter you, but you have to yield to Him. There have been times where I've felt like a hand was holding mine, or someone was brushing against my face or arms. This is either angels, or the Holy Ghost being upon you. But the feeling is even greater when He comes inside of you. Read my story, you'll know what I mean. (: God bless.

Master Babaji of Haidakhan once did a similar thing to a disciple. He pushed him upon right scapular region as uif opening a trigger point. From this time his soul knelt before Babaji and the only thing he still wanted from life was to serve his Guru whom he, as usual in Hindu mystics, thought to be identical with Godfather. You have been pushed by the formless and timeless Spirit to keep within Jesus and to keep Jesus within you and this is even more precious than some living Saint's push binding one to the Saint to worship God residing in him. For Saints are paladins but Jesus is the King.

Hello Aimee22

This may be difficult to understand or accept depending on your religious beliefs and what you have been taught by those in the Church.

Aimee a lot of people think I am just an old "wind bag" on this site, however it is not very often that I am drawn to a post for any particular reason or another, however this one is different. I was led to your post to pass along a message...

If you have ever dreamt of experiencing the Son of Man first-hand, then dream no longer for you have experienced him in all his glory. Your Pub night colleagues will think I have been smoking something, or on drugs. I can assure you I am not, my "drug" is a daily communion with the Divine and the Son of Man, if you are not sure of me please read my posts for a little insight as to WHO I AM.

The message I have been asked to pass along regarding your "push" is

"...move forward with your wonderful life, experience it in it's fullest and life every day in the glory of the Divine, for you my child are a masterpiece of the Heavenly Father. He is within you, part of you and will never leave you. I love you my precious earthly angel of the Lord. Go now and live your life to its' fullest making every day a testament to WHO YOU ARE.

Namaste my precious child..."

Aimee you do not have to believe any of what I have just passed along is true for that is something we must judge for ourselves depending on our individual beliefs. However open your mind, heart and soul fully to God and his Son, even more than you think you presently have.

Look inside you the answers are there, remember in YOUR faith the Holy Trinity is Father Son and Holy Ghost, all one, for you have indeed experienced the Holy Trinity my precious Friend, enjoy that moment and make it last a lifetime...

"...My Peace I leave you..."

maybe the Holy Ghost wanted you to step forward and you would be guided to do something or say something. I had an experience at age 20 where I was at work and felt compelled to go and talk to my boss about my willingness to work more overtime and I had that feeling for half an hour. I call it a burning in the bosom. The feeling passed and I didn't talk to my boss but 2 weeks later I was laid off. Had I listened to that spiritual prompting I probably would have kept my job instead of having been laid off.
