Real Spiritual Experiences

Peaceful Visitor


My husband, Mike, was deployed to Saudi Arabia prior for Desert Storm. He left December 24th 1990. I remained at our duty station in Germany with our two children ages 5 & 2. I was beyond worried and was terrified that he would die over there. One night I awakened to a soft light on the side of my bed. I was sleeping with my back toward the light and as I became aware I rolled over to see what it was. There was a woman standing there and she was semi transparent. She wore a long, flowing dress-like garment with lots of layers that softly swayed as if a light breeze were blowing the layers. Her expression was serene, ethereal. She was bathed in a soft, blue-white light and in her arms she held a baby. She didn't say anything or move other than the light undulation of her dress. I sat up in the bed and rubbed my eyes, thinking it was a dream. But I was wide-awake.

I was filled with the most peaceful feeling I've ever felt in my life. All I could do is sit there in the middle of my bed in complete awe of this being that stood next to my bed. I felt no fear what so ever, just absolute peace and tranquility. Though she didn't say or do anything I knew she was there to let me know that Mike would come home safely and the baby in her arms was ours that we would have sometime in the future. I sat for several minutes looking at her and finally lied back in the bed and went back to sleep.

After that night I no longer felt fear that my husband would die in war. It was still a difficult time, but I felt no fear. I knew he would come home safely and that knowledge carried me through the long days until he returned to me.

Mike came home in May 1991. Our daughter, unplanned but welcome, was born August 1992.

I've shared this experience with several people over the years. Some think I was dreaming, some believe she was a spirit guide, one said that he thought it was a relative that had passed over, one said that she felt it was the "Blessed Mother" there to comfort me. After years of following my own spiritual path I have come to believe that she was/is a spirit guide who came to give me comfort during an incredibly stressful time.

Scarlett2, I totally agree with you. I have never had any spiritual experiences myself, but they sound pretty enjoyable for the most part.

I too have seen a petite ethereal lady after being awoken from a sound sleep for no reason. The first time, I awoke to see her almost gliding past my husbands side of the bed as he was sound asleep. The second time I awoke and saw her going down the corridor of our bedroom. Both times I noticed the sweetest scent, almost like a rosy talcum powder... For me, I have no doubt it was the Blessed Mother coming to comfort me in times of need or despair. I prayed and asked for her to ask her Son for a miracle so I could have a baby... After years and years of infertility treatments, I never gave up hope... And our little bundles of joy came soon after.

To have the Blessed Mother come to you with the infant Jesus, is very, very special! And very rare. You must be a very special person and dear to God's heart... I am honored to read your story!

A few years after the Blessed Mother first came to me - I received my first visit from the Holy Spirit in April 2010. (I have posted my story on this site)...I call it my Holy Spirit Baptism! Lasted over 4 hours! To feel God's presence enter your being is something that immediately changes your destiny... I have only grown closer to Him in all ways ever since!

Many Blessings to you my friend,

Scarlett ❤
