For 5 years I have been struggling with divorce issues and my older children not wanting to be in my life. I have blamed myself, struggled with sadness and contemplated hurting myself. I have prayed to the Lord frequently and read scripture. I recently starting seeing a Therapist. On June 19th at 10:37pm, I received a text that was hurtful and heartbreaking worse than the times before. I immediately started praying to take the pain away, to help me over and over again. Within seconds, a tingling sensation starting on the left side of my head and proceeded downward towards my neck. It was a light (pins and needle) sensation. I am not sure if that was a sign from God, but I am hoping it was. It was a great feeling.

Thanks to everyone for posting. I read each & everyone. I have always wanted some clarification as to what I felt way back in 1988. I will try to make my testimony brief. I was baptized at the age of 31 and going to a Luthran church and was trying my best to be the best person I could be. I was married to an alcoholic and my oldest daughter at age 14 became involved with drugs and alcohol and ended up being expelled from school. Eventually I put her into a program called Straight for teenagers and 2 weeks later my husband checked himself into a rehab. By this time I was frazzled and felt on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I worked full time and still had 2 younger children to take care of.
I couldn't eat or sleep and was totally exhausted.

A good friend of mine just kept telling me God will never give you more then you can handle but I was at my breaking point & knew it. That evening I lay in bed not able to sleep & all the horrors of my life running through my mind. I prayed to God for peace and nothing else. Seconds later a wave of pure relaxation and a deep feeling of peace and security washed over me. I knew that the Holy Spirit had entered that room and myself. I slept like a baby all night and woke up refreshed. I told my friend this story the next day and she confirmed what I already knew. I've never lost that peace to this day. I have had plenty of horrors happen in my family since then because all 3 of my children are drug -addicts and alcoholics. I eventually divorced my husband after 32 years of marriage. He had gotten sober in that treatment center but it didn't last. I pray for my family and go on with my life in peace. I am now raising 2 teenage grandsons by myself as my youngest daughter went to prison for meth related charges. I have never lost the calming effect and a sense of serenity that I felt that night. God the Father, the son and the Holy Ghost are real

Last night I fell asleep and woke up in pain and with a massive panic attack around 4 this morning. Before I tried falling back to sleep, I said a lot of prayers and talked to God and The Lord. I fell back to sleep and when I woke up again my entire body was in a state of bliss and euphoria and in my mind I heard myself say "The euphoria took the pain away." I felt very calm and relaxed. It was soothing beyond words. I believe God was cleansing my spirit. If you're ever in a state of pain or panic or anxiety, pray and talk to The Lord and you will feel better than ever.

Your story is living testimony of what being born again really is
The feeling you felt was the Holy Spirit entering you and living inside of you- we have to willing give ourselves to God- give him permission- he will never force himself. We are all on a journey and all life experiences will eventually lead to him where 'give it over' and realise Man does not know only God
The number for Man is 6 (Satan 666) reoccurring- it will never be 7. 7 is God competition

You are now Gods Son- you have been enlightened and you will truely go to heaven. If you start reading the bible you will discover it will actually make sense now! And then you spiritual gifts will come. This actually the beginning of your journey not the end
Few people get to this point - Thank God- you are truely blessed

I felt it when I was on a holy tour to Lourdes. There the whole tour was having this mass of surrendering, letting our earthly matters be lifted and handed to His hands. Each and every one of us had such different reactions that we ourselves didn't even know how we were on the outside appear. Some shouted, some sang, some stayed quiet. I was a little scared when I saw what was going on to the people around me who were already in it. I closed my eyes, I tried to let all my burdens, my worries and life issues behind me and tried not to think of anything but to just focus on the greatness of God. So, that time, it was winter season. It was cold, breezing and we all had layers of think clothing (since we are a tour coming from Indonesia). I was yet still feeling the coldness as we entered the room. Until that moment when I finally was lost in this paradise. I began crying and sobbing in tears, actual tears were running down my cheeks like a running fountain. My tears were so warm like it was there to comfort me. While I cried and all of that, I can't really recall of what was on my mind, what was I dreaming or thinking of, up until now. I couldn't stop crying. It was insanely amusing to know how much tears you hold in your body. Then, the pastor came to me, whispered to my ear of some things I couldn't really understand and he touched my forehead, like he was comforting me.

The next time I knew was that I was lost in this most beautiful, relaxed - therapeutic too actually - of a beautiful white snow and trees passing by in a moderate pace while I was sitting in a bus looking out the window. I loved it. I thought I was nearly in Heaven. As the dream goes on, I was in no control of my own body. I couldn't control any parts of my body. I still could feel and be aware, but it was out of control. My arms and hands were slowly opening wide open to each sides of my body, my neck slowly dragged my head and back down to the back support of the church seat. Finally, I was in that surrender looking kind of position, open, as if God was initiating me to open myself, surrender myself to Him, let Him lift up all that is in my life. I was again, in paradise. I soon fell deep asleep. It was one great, restful sleep! No dreams, no thoughts, no nothing! Just purely resting every vein, every parts of my body on OFF mode. I believe it was about 15 to 30 minutes of sleep, I wouldn't even know.

The time I woke up, I still felt like I was still in that world, not back to earth/reality yet. But, I was a little more conscious of my surroundings than the past hour. I could remember that everyone else were all awake and were consulting, chattering with one another, sharing each other's experiences. I was feeling strange. I felt cold and freezing in my body, but my spirit and soul felt so warm and comforting. I was shivering outside. My parents even came up to me to hug me to warm me up while cluelessly looking at staring at me. I didn't mind. I looked confused back at them, wondering why I was having that feeling. Then the pastor came up to me again and whispered at my ear again, as if to turn off the what ever thing was happening to me. Within a few seconds, I felt the holy spirit dismissed from my body and my body ended all of it with normal tears (not the warm tears like from earlier).

I was conscious and I smiled. I stood up, still was not believing that I was in that other world. I went outside to the cold fresh air and I felt cold just like before when I was still a normal human being. But the most incredible, amazing miracle I felt right at that moment was realising how light I was. Not physically, but emotionally, spiritually and mentally. That moment I knew that my burdens and troubles, my weight were all lifted up to His glorious hands. I became joyful. I became more conscious of the little things of the environment and my surroundings, including leaves, water, etc. It was such an amazing feeling! I can't really put it in to exact words or description.

The downside is that this event happened, and I was not ever ready to ask or listen to the pastor of what that happened to me meant. The pastor sure knew something about it and he knew there was a certain sign and or meaning of it that specifically happened to me. But, he told me that he wouldn't tell me if I werent ready to ask. For years, until now, I wonder still. I haven't got the chance to meet this pastor again. I don't think I ever will. I just really want to put together the pieces and stop having these question marks.

This is the first time I ever got it written in text btw. And only my family knows about this event.

I don't know if it is ok to share my own experience with you all because I am not Christian but I have been through something very similar.
God is really there and is loving and caring. When we let go and when we give up to him all we are going through... Only when we truly do that he will make our prayers come true. Talking to God is the essential part of us being humans...
I am going through the worst time of my life... Everything around me fell apart. I am away from my family can't meet them and drained out with pain and longing. I have no way to go to them and cry in there hands... The good thing is that I am blessed with great friends but no one is like family so I miss them badly. And I am living alone in this place.
About 3 months ago the love of my life... My fiance broke up with me... He lives in a different place too and I wasn't able to make it to where he is... It's all due to Visa issues... However, we have been together for 4 years and he was everything to me... Every night I prayed for the day we will be finally together... I loved the man from the bottom of my heart but then out of no where he asked to break up even though we are engaged and made a big party 2 years ago... Then the 2 of us had to travel desperately and he seemed weaker than I thought... He gave up on me so easily... Then one week ago I heard that he got engaged! To his friend that I know! It was like a knife in my heart. I was in shock and pain even though I knew there was someone and that it might be her but getting engaged so fast was a deep shock to me. I couldn't even take days off my work... I have no family here and my family were so worried about me... I was going through the worst time of my life.
I really wished I die because I saw no hope in living like this... Away from my comfort zone so much... Away from love and family... I know few good guys here but no one is reaching me out and I felt so depressed being unwanted too much. My love is happy now with his sweety... I am so lonely here and no one is interested in reaching me out and I really needed someone to be around. Or to be able to meet my beloved family.
I kept praying for a long time now but with a doubt inside my heart that it is not easy to be changed... That God is not going to change anything in my life... I have no doubt that God is there so I didn't doubt his existence but I thought that he might want me to stay lonely forever. So that I have to give up my prayers.
Yesterday I was on the peak but everytime I reach that point I cry so much then I watch something funny in order to forget. I don't put any power in talking to God. But Yesterday a friend of whom I trust so much said to me that if you keep fighting the struggles will not end. You have to give it up to God. And I thought that I was doing it but apparently I wasn't... Until last night. I took a very good shower the one that you feel great after. Then alone in my small room... I prayed (in my religion we pray 5 times a day) so it was the last prayer of the day. I prayed more prayers then I started talking to God as if it was the first time... I begged him deeply to end my pain... To make my life better... To be released from pain and to open doors to me... I prayed and cried so much... And for the first time I was in certainty that God is listening... I was so sure that he was there listening to me and that he will even change my destiny if it was going to be a hard one... After I finished I was in a great comfort... As if all the prayers have came true... As if I am in heaven... A feeling that all the burden I am carrying has just gone! Noting has yet changed but I was sure that it had!
Only few hours has passed and noting had changed yet but I am in a deep satisfaction that everything has already changed... I am so happy and sure that everything is OK now... Thanks God for being there for us and for making us his creatures and giving us the ability of feeling him.
Bless you all

I want everyone to know that that God is real and the Holy Spirit is real! More than 25 years ago as a young father working as a sports reporter and announcer in the Los Angeles area, I became very restless with what was going on in the world. The city of Los Angeles was going through racial strife. I remember seeing on TV a young girl in South Central Los Angeles crying when she saw her school burning down, because she said "education is my only way out!" Imagine the heartache of a child so desperate to escape her day to day reality! The Iraq war was raging and innocent civilian lives were lost as a result. I saw so much that broke my heart in the world that I had began to have a strong urging to do more with my life to serve God and discover my eternal purpose. I had attended church for much of my life and was a Christian but what did that really mean for my future. I had the sensation that if I had suddenly died, I would be desperate to have wanted to have done more with my life for this incredible gift of life that I was given. I had to know God's eternal purpose for my life. Nothing else mattered. Over several months I prayed and prayed and prayed a prayer that I have always called "my two-by-four prayer". That is, "God I need to know what you want for my life and what you want me to do with my life, but you need to hit me over the head with a two-by-four because I need to know 100% that it is YOUR voice that I am hearing and not my own." Without going into every detail of what I have experienced on many, many occasions since those days, I will tell you 100% that God is real, the SON is real, and the Holy Spirit is real and the most powerful and LOVING force in the universe. My Holy Spirit encounters that were very loving and incredibly emotional began with deep sensations of love and warmth that surrounded me, it continued with an ever-present slight pressure in my head that wasn't pain but a reminder of the Holy Spirit's constant presence in my life. A few weeks after I began to pray intensely for God's direction, as I sat down at the piano, a simple tune came into my head that I couldn't forget. I played it over and over so often that my sister-in-law said, "why don't you put words to the music?" I immediately wrote the words to a song I called "His Hand Is On Our Shoulder" -- the chorus of which is very simple and very direct..."His hand is on our shoulder, He touches us every day, sometimes we may not feel Him, but He's with us all the way. Through life's joys and sorrows, His laughter and tears join our own. His hand is on our shoulder and we'll never be alone." We'll NEVER be alone and YOU will NEVER be alone. Please remember that and be comforted by that! That first little song that was turned into a benediction at our church led to dozens of others that have been written and published over the years. In many instances when I was awoken at night, a song title just popped into my head and a song "wrote itself" as if my automatic writing. Over the years, God has used me for much more than sports reporting. I have been blessed to help so many wonderful causes and even produce stories and documentaries for so many wonderful causes that help so many people. To this day, I ask God to continue to point me to what He wants me to do to "shed a light" on that which is good and of God. I desperately want EVERYONE to know that it is very easy to mistake a church or a church building or a preacher or pastor for the presence of God himself -- and since God is everywhere, HE can certainly be in all these places and all these people -- but WHEN YOU DESPERATELY seek that one-on-one relationship and cry out with all your heart for direction AND you find yourself at such a low or desperate place that you simply must have answers and direction -- you will find that God is there, the Holy Spirit is there and, here is the greatest evidence of the Holy Spirit's presence of all. In addition to all the physical feelings of incredible warmth, tingling, and any other sensation that may surround you for days and months -- there is the INCREDIBLE FEELING OF LOVE that is something you can't explain. Not just love for your family and friends, but love for everyone! Love even for those who you can't imagine loving! YES, GOD IS LOVE and love never fails. Is it any wonder that when Jesus was asked by his disciples what the greatest commandment was, as recorded in the gospel of Matthew, Jesus' answer was "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets" Many blessings and great LOVE to all who read these words and know that if you are reading this, "there are no coincidences, GOD LOVES YOU, GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE, YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE AND WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

I'm Catholic now, but used to be Presbyterian. I didn't really become Christian until I was 28.

I won't go into the background too much as it takes too long, but I've had three "double whammies", like a breath going through you in waves from head to foot. Each time it was used to highlight and emphasise a phrase someone else was saying, so much so that I still remember those three phrases 35 years later.

The first was at Christmas 1983 at a Scripture Union camp. As a new Christian I was going through a bad trot and thinking to myself "How do I know this is all true, and not just a psychological prop?" But as we sat around for our usual afternoon Bible study, the words "... A man after my own heart... " were read out. Precisely as they were read, the first "double whammy" hit me. I just about fell off the seat, I got such a shock.

The same thing happened on two more occasions during the following year and it hasn't happened since. The phrases were different, but the phenomenon was the same.

Since that first "double whammy" I've never been able to deny God is there, despite my atheism before becoming Christian in late 1982. I don't always like Him much, but I'd be kidding myself to think He's not there. He's there all right.

I accepted Christ when I was 16 - quite a number of years ago. A year later I was 17 praying in church at the alter on my knees after the service. It was quiet and a few people had stayed to worship and sing. I was telling God he could have everything in my life, I was surrendering all to him. I thought somebody took hold of my folded hands but when I opened my eyes, my hands were being opened and lifted by the presence of the Holy Spirit. What felt like liquid love warmly poured through my fingers, arms, head, shoulders and through my entire body. All I could respond was thank you Lord over and over. Every negative emotion, fear and anxiety was replaced by love and peace. It lasted about a 30 seconds or a minute but left me so joyful that laughter would bubble out of me for the next month. I know with-out a doubt it was the Holy Spirit physically telling me how loved I was. It was a physical hug from God wrapping me in his love and goodness. It has never happened again but has given me great comfort in times of doubt and trouble.

Yes I have experiences something similar. I became a born again christian about 30 years ago. I knew I was born again, I saw everything so differently, the bible became alive. Through trials and my flesh I wasn't very close to the Lord for a long while however made a decision this year to serve the Lord fully and I have a new love relationship with him. In my commitment to serving and loving the Lord fully and while I was praying one night the experience I felt was the same as yours however it came from the top of my head down to my toes and it moved so fast. The feeling was utter peace and I just wanted to stay there. It didn't last long either about a minute. Since then I have had it happen a few times when praying however not as strong as the first time.; I'm am absolutely sure its the Holy Spirit and confirmation I am his. What a wonderful beautiful Lord we have and he has loved me and poured his grace out to me when I wasn't close to him for a long time. He has brought me back in a new way and I can say I love him with a genuine love, he is so merciful.

I've experienced this for the first ever time tonight in my apartment. I've been a Christian for four years, yet never experienced a power of peace like this moment I had about half an hour ago. Circumstances have put me at a point where things felt a little bit to much for me. But after praying and talking to my best friend I felt a sudden bolt of peace and felt happy. Because I knew God was saying, I've got this! I've got you! And it's amazing and I've never felt like this before in all the years I've known him. It's made me really open my eyes to knowing that God is all around us, all the time 247

Hi! My mom and I are having this experience at the same time over and over again for the last 2 weeks. We stumbled on these YouTube videos of a man named TB Joshua healing people. I heard the Holy Spirit say, I AM HERE. The man then said time, space and distance are not boundaries. He spoke and it Happened! And kept happening as he laid hands on people. It was like lighting electricity and Love and Grace at the same time. We wept tears of joy and gratitude. It was uncontrollable... My mom literally looked like she was getting electrocuted. All limbs stuck straight out, teeth clenched. I shake uncontrollably. It happens to my mom all the time but it was new to me and not like she's ever experienced. We get tingles but We are both very sensitive to spirits and other entities. This was The Am. Just amazing. God is real.

Hello, I had the same feeling. God is allowing the Holy spirit to show you how love. It is a beautiful feeling. He showed me when I was at my lowest. I never had something like the feeling of electricity but in a good way. I didn't want to stop praying it was for about 30 seconds. I just kept thanking God. I finally had received the Holy spirit. Who can understand the mind of God? Who knows God's ways? I don't fully understand the trinity: the father, the son, & the Holy spirit, but I believe in it. God bless you all. Amen

So used to be a Gravedigger brought up Catholic don't practice religion my experience was October 14th 2:30 in the morning 2007. Hard to explain but I will try. I don't do drugs I am a straight person. Anyway I woke up at 2:30 in the morning I looked around and there was like a floating image in the corner of my room and I was in shock and it started flying around my room whatever it started off like a basketball blob you can kind of see through it then it stretched itself out like a snake and it was black I had a light on in the living room so I could see in my bedroom at the time to me it was an entity from the other side more than likely the old man after spending time many weeks sleeping on my couch. I had another encounter where it was like somebody was talking in my brain and basically I used to smoke and I still smoke but it was like quit smoking so after that I study religion for three and a half years and I'm not religious I'm a spiritual man I studied all religions and in my conclusion there's only one God of all the religions and that is God I've had many encounters with the old man so all I'm going to say is you are a living cocoon waiting to turn into something different there is Red zone the black zone and the light zone these are the areas you might end up in. Take care behave yourself hope you go where you want to go old man's gravedigger PS your dreams are not dreams these are part of you and the other side you might see your co-workers a loved one that has passed away excetera if you concentrate on the verge of sleep look for colors look for movement you need to concentrate and then you might watch yourself crossover end of story take care this is an interaction between the living and the ones that are gone you use your third eye in this process take care also you have to clear your mind you can't think about money personal problems Etc just what you're looking for

I have had this experience of a feeling of a energy taking over my whole body today when I stopped for a moment of silence for Rememberance Day at 11:11am, which I said the Lords prayer for each and every single person who has passed away from war. I felt a strong engery flowing through every part of my body, the hairs on my arms and legs all stood on end. After the few moments of energy had passed, I felt physically drained and tired. My husband looked worried for me, but I said that I am at peace and that my life is going the way it should be. I have experienced this feeling before only twice in my life. When I was a teenager, struggling with depression from alcoholic parents, my friends grandparents prayed over me while I had a violent nightmare. The second time was when I gave birth to my daughter and I was in a lot of pain. My aunt prayed over me and all the negative energy lifted from me like a heavy blanket. I am a very strong believer in the Holy Spirit, and I experience a lot of deja vu, and believe that the Lord is showing me that my life is going in the right direction and to be strong. I was not raised to believe, but my own person experiences have made me a very spiritual person. I thank Jesus everyday for the world and I pray for every single soul in the world every day.

I also had this experience it changed me forever. God first was coming to me in dreams and I would wake up crying telling him I would quit my shenanigans but I had a huge fear of being damned. I would drink to lose the panic attacks of the thoughts. It was the week before the last blood moon and I was terrified. I was dreaming of God saying to stop and trust him that time was Nigh. The last night I drank the following morning I started to have panic again and was going to open a beer but instead heard the spirit tell me not to. I stood crying at the bathroom in full panic knowing I had better heed my warning. I looked at the Jesus drawing my aunt gave me and started to pray. I said God if you want me to quit as I want to also please take it all away. Please father I can't do this any longer I surrender to you all. I give up I need you and without you I can't do this. I felt this electric warm honey feel pierce me. I looked at my arms and the hairs where standing on end. It felt like a rock being thrown into calm water how it rippled through me. It was the most amazing sensation that had me on my knees in joy and it lingered for awhile. I knew I was to grab that 12 pack of beer and toss it. Ever since my panic of years the bad one stole my peace had me gain weight on my small frame with beer and depression. I'm on my way to losing the rest so prayers are greatly appreciated but I can't complain. My life is now wonderful and joyful and I couldn't be more greatful. I now know why I couldn't grasp God even though I thought I loved him before and I tried I truly didn't. I since have been baptized with my husband and life is so great! Praise my Father God Almighty!

Hi I was in my mid twenties when I felt the electricity feeling all over my body. I had been very depressed after being in and out of a bad relationship with a woman so I started fasting and praying having my heart broken I didn't have much of a appetite so I just prayed like constantly for a week or two I still didn't feel completely over her so recalled my cousin telling me how my aunt prayed with him one day and it was a powerful experience for him so I decided to visit her and ask for prayer while praying it wasn't long before I was on the floor crying and this electricity feeling was surrounding my body I could especially feel it in my lips as l lay there on the floor my aunt began to speak a message for the lord he kept calling me his son, I was instructed to read proverbs chapter 5, son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:

2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.

3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.

5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.

6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.

7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:

After reading that I knew I was to leave the woman alone and stay away from her. The experience freed me from the depression and moved on with my life and God has been providing and fulfilling everyday! Praise God

I went through the exact same thing. Started at the tips of my toes and a slow wave of electricity went through my entire body and out the top of my head. I thought I was the only one to experience that until I saw this site. I wrote about it on here.

I experienced the same feeling as the Author. I felt huge energy, electricity coming through all my body. It starts from the toes and goes up. I felt tingling and being energized all over my body. This happens in deep prayer then I'm genuinely seeking God with all my heart. It's like saying Yes, I'm with you, I'm present, I hear you and I love you. I feel so much loved and cared this way. I had before physical pain in my hands for long time. When I experienced Holy Spirit that tingling, energizing feeling didn't left me for 3 days. In that time I didn't felt any physical pain in my hands. I was in prayer constantly. Now I experience it too when I'm praying. It can last for a second.

i just signed up to this site today after reading your story. I had googled "holy spirit experience" because I have found myself in serious want of that manifestation as I had experienced years ago... I will post my own fuller story eventually, but I have to say that I had a similar type of experience, in december of...'07? Shortly before christmas. I was not thinking of anything in particular, just playing darts in the basement and listening to the black crowes... A song came on and the vocals rang out "seeing things for the first time..." he started repeating it over and over, and suddenly every dart I was throwing was hitting the bulls eye, I felt really connected to everything and then WHAM - it felt like something flew into my back and resided within me... I could barely see, I was completely overcome by a feeling so awesome...orgasmic, really... I had to stumble to a support post and fell against it, slid down to the floor and just absorbed the sensations before it subsided to an all-encompassing peace and serenity, clarity and love until - and this is like another's comment - I decided I HAD to share this feeling of love and talk to people about it. The feeling lasted a total of 3 days, I could perceive others' thoughts and feelings, I could feel things physically but could understand it's separateness from the spiritual and the mind... I had spiritual experiences in the past but never anything like that. Unfortunately with the high came a very low depression due to the feeling leaving, which took a very long time to battle - and I sometimes still do. I would be equally curious to hear about anyone else's struggle with the same.

Thank you so much to everyone for sharing your stories and encouragement - it is so nice to go to a place where there are others who can appreciate these types of experiences for what they are.

May God bless you and may you continually seek him in your lives.

I cannot tell you how similar what your saying is to my experinces of the holy spirit. I prayed to god, and simply asked for the conviction of the holy spirit, so I could know I was saved, I have an insane fear of hell, not sure why. After around 5-10mins, I lay there thinking about work tommorow, and I tell you the truth, with in a split second before I could even think about what was going on, a physical energy when from my feet to my head, it was like hot, lighting infused pins and needles, like every part of my body was electricuted in a nice way, it was physical tho, not emotional, like I was burning but in a good way, like buring with out the pain, and with a mix of electricity, and then it left. Sometimes I think I am going mad. Was incredible.

Hello, I am new to this site today and will post my story at some stage, but, right now, I particularly wanted to encourage 'tadge, if he didn't mind. I just wanted to tell you, to not worry so much about 'sin'. You are right that Christ came to wash us clean, so it's important to realise that this process is so normal and natural and the last thing we need is to condemn ourselves because of what we find inside of us. All we need to do is acknowledge our failings one to another (often necessary on a daily basis, hehe) and get on with living. This is an area that I struggled in for so much of my 40 years and am only just coming to grips with this principle of which I am so relieved. Forgiving myself for what I am and have done has been a major step to my freedom and peace. I will struggle with 'sin' (which are just spirits fighting against the spirit that we are, which is Christ; the bible says so!) until the day I leave this existence, but as I have already discovered, it gets easier and easier every year of my walk as I see each area being manifest and cleaned up by God. I have felt abit like a spring that has been slowley unwound to reveal the true me, God. This last year has been my break through after a whole life of utter struggle, thoughts of suicide and trying and failing once, depression, anxiety, illness caused by stress, overactive mind. My God has truly been faithful, bit by bit giving me the tools to straighten out my mind resulting in peace and joy which I have never really known. I Have had many experiences of the holy spirit hitting my body which has bought such a clarity of thought, peace and all the fruits. This does wear off, but only for God to prune again, to make room for more of him so that my times of peace are longer, amen. It's a process that never stops, but once the spirit has hit, there is no turning back. God does not give up even if we feel we do, he is the one whom is failthful and once he starts, he finishes.Anyways...thats my feelings and thoughts on it, God Speed.

I was nineteen years old and my mother begged me to go to Morris Cerullo crusade, I told my mother I didn't want to go, but I loved my mom so I went. I was a trouble teen that had a alcohol and drug problem. When ever I did one, I did the other, and I got into a lot of trouble! My Mom & Dad put me into treatment for alcoholism & drug abuse when I was 17. While I was there they talk about the 12 steps of recovery and talk about God. I had no up bringing of any faith at all. So it was pretty difficult to wrap my mind around something greater, but I was willing to give it a try. That lasted a couple months before I started drinking. I found myself in treatment again, by this time I was living on the streets and had a bleeding ulser and coughing up blood. This time I meant business but again had trouble with the God thing. My mother after the first treatment found Alanon and then found the LORD JESUS, she was Spirt filled, that's when she asked and then begged me to go to see Morris Cerullo. I went and didn't hear much of anything accept at the ending, he said there's a young man in the audience that God has told him to pray for and ask him to come forward, half the men went forward, not me, I was to cool, so he said it again, and a few more went forward, again I wouldn't budge. He did that 3 or 4 times. I wouldn't move, I was afraid someone might see me. So he said, God told me to Pray for you here, and then I felt what you were describing, I felt this energy flow through me that no drug or booze ever allowed me to feel, I was crying with tears of joy, I had the biggest smile, and my whole body was tingling! I was sold, I went foward then and they gave me a handbook for a change life. I left there and tried to stop everything, drugs, drinking, smoking, chewing, cussing, lusting. I failed miserably, it only lasted a couple of weeks before I thought what the use. I can't quit sinning. I missed it, That is why JESUS came here in the first place, to wash away our sins with HIS blood. I may still struggle with sinning, but I'm not in denial of GOD existence and LOVE!

The following is copyrighted to Carl Garrett because it's in a book I've written for which I am pursuing publication.

I experienced being filled with the Holy Spirit in February 2010, about 1.5 years ago. It happened during a moment of surrender, when I had decided I would no longer hold any of my heart back from God. I was faced with a familiar temptation two times in a row, several days apart. And I prayed to God, right there on the spot, both times, for His power to help me to not fall into that temptation again. As soon as I finished that short prayer, all of a sudden I felt a warmth that started at the top of my head and began moving slowly down my body all the way to my feet. An amazing love and joy immediately welled up inside of me, inside my heart, and my eyes teared up. It was totally unexpected. As the warmth was traveling down my body headed towards my feet, when it got to my hands, I turned my hands over and I looked at both of my palms. And immediately, the very first thought that occurred to me was "I HAVE to tell somebody about this; I can't keep this Love to myself any longer. I have to tell somebody, anybody, about Jesus, and soon!" I knew I could no longer keep silent about how much God loves me and how much He loves everyone else, too. Since that day, I've shared the Gospel with over 600 people in the last year and a half. For the past year I've been writing a book to describe what God did in my life and what He revealed to me. I wrote the following webpage to describe it: Please read it. May you experience all of His amazing love.

I couldn't really verbalize what I felt, as I still can't be clear as to what exactly happened to me.
I wrote this to my sister a day after the healing, 'I was enlightened. I had God touch my shoulder to tell me it's ok. God and I spoke. I told him thank you. We were laughing. God took away all my pain. He healed my heart, my ulcer, the fog in my thoughts. I wanted to give God my heart. I saw the light. I felt love all around me. I surrendered my body to God. I was in Nirvana.'

Beautiful. All I can say it was a beautiful experience and I wish it upon all beings. I feel highly blessed and I am grateful.

I was going through a rough time--a break up with someone I was heavily involved with. Ever since the break up, I clung to the cross and sought God actively.

One day, I was driving to get a haircut, feeling extremely sad and "words" hit me. God said "Give me your pain, anxiety, and burden and let me carry it for you".

For the next 5 to 10 minutes I couldn't stop laughing. I felt no pain, no anxiety, no burdens from anything. I was just laughing and laughing and smiling from pure joy.

Dear Dfrank:

What you described in great detail that happened to you happened to me in high school! It was a very dark time in my life, and I was an isolated sinner... Nobody but me and God and satan knew about what I was into. One of the last days of my senior year, I was just so overwhelmingly depressed, and I told my mom I didn't feel well enough to go to school. She knew how much I hated high school, so she didn't try to persuade me to go. I went in my room and I just cried and wept and apologized to God. I repented of everything in weeping desperation, and confessed that I was scared of where this road would take me, that I had tried to stop doing what I was doing, but that I was powerless... That I needed Him, and only He could save me. At that moment, I felt this warm, loving energy rush over me, and it started in my feet and moved all the way up through the top of my head. As it was moving through me, it was cleansing me of all my shame, darkness, and depression! And when it left the through the top of my head, I only wept with gladness and awe! It was such a beautiful moment, one I can barely describe with words. I absolutely believe it was the Holy Spirit... And ever since then, I have never doubted that my name is written in His book.

will you cry if you have been touche by the holy spirit? Because I never cried. I feel so weird. Everyboy's crying and I'm not. Is it because I'm not sensitive to the holy spirit?

Often, when all things in our lives are going right but we live without God as our priority, He will get our attention by "cutting us off at the knees" so to speak. You think you have lost everything, and are so sad and desperate, that you turn to Him for comfort or answers. He is waiting for you to turn to him... While some already live with God as their priority, others are blind and need to hit rock bottom in order to get to know God. This happened to me in late 2008. God has taken over my life and provides for me in ways that make me more confident in Him everyday. I have dreams of Jesus, dreams of the Holy Spirit coming to me. Last night, I felt the Holy Spirit's light and warmth, with eyes closed, I could feel and see the warmth and comfort of his brilliant light.
This world is only temporary. We've got to repent and prepare for the afterlife. We cannot stop sinning entirely... It's human nature. When you sin, repent immediately. Pray, and praise God. Read the Bible every day. Know He is near and ready to guide you. I hope that everyone takes the opportunity to let God take control of their lives. He won't do your chores for you, or buy you a new car, but he will give you what you need to move on the path He has planned for you.
Be Blessed, everyone. See you on the other side.

Jay, praise the Lord for you. This has shook my world! It's only been 3 or 4 weeks since I last wrote. God is working! I had another experience tonight. I was talking to the Lord... Not really praying but just thanking Him again for that experience. Then I did ask and commanded in the name of Jesus to heel my back... I kept on believing with my heart and soul... Everything completely in His hands and I saw through a little window I was looking out of with eyes lifted for heaven a beam of bright light just shot through to me and just covered my whole body. After a few minute S I sob with excitement and euphoria. My second time with in weeks of each other. I am still shaking and so happy that I had to write. I think He is working hard to get His people back what with all of the earthquakes,tsaomis,volcanos and the world news and especially with spirit of our Lord, Jesus Christ touching us through the Holy Spirit in us to recieve such a gift. He is totally awesome!

Until now I am still overwhelmed of the experience It was two days ago. We are inside a room, together with my church leader and a mentor. It was actually a two day event at our church. We were worshiping Jesus at that moment. Then, in midst of our worship, a hot white flash of light hit my eyes. It was so hot that I moved my face and opened my eyes. When I looked at my church leader and mentor, they are both praying and eyes closed. I even thought, it was one of them who actually did it. Like, putting a flashlight really really close to your eyes that you feel the heat of the bulb. THe only difference was, with a flashlight, when you opened your eyes, you are like seeing a black spots everywhere and the light is not a pure white since you had your eyes closed. But that light I saw is different, a pure white, and in a split second, it's a hot one. I never told them this until this afternoon and they are both amazed. That's why I tried searching for related experiences and I saw this post. I am actually a struggling Christian. Due to sins. And this experience would definitely change my life forever.

I've felt this before and long for God to do it again. Euphoria is the only word that I can explain for such a feeling. It happened again last night as I was praying. I thanked Him for loving me so much and that I loved Him with all of my heart and soul. I praised Him and knew that He was coming soon and I should be ready for Him as a bride awaiting the wedding day. I again felt this over-whelming rush of love that just takes over your whole body with rushes and rushes of love and sereness, I didn't want it to leave so I kept praising His Glory and It was beautiful. Tears rolled down my eyes and pillow. I've talked about it all day and probably will forever. I can't wait until tonight. Much Love to you All brothers and sisters. God Bless You, Em

I had a similar experience twice in 2009. The first one occurred during that time when I was having relationship troubles. After months for anger and depression, I cried and prayed and submitted everything to God. At that moment, I felt a sudden rush of cold sensation all over my body. I described it to my friends as "like a really cold shower during an extremely hot day in the desert". It was incredible. That cool feeling lasted for a moment but from then on, I just learned to trust God more and more.

The second experience was a little different. It happened about two weeks after my mom suddenly passed away. As I was in the car on my way to work, I kept thinking about my mom, trying to make sense of her sudden departure and trying to understand that I (who's the only one working in our family besides my mom) now had to take care of our family's finances. I was 26 y/o, single, and up until that point, never really cared about anyone else but myself. Now, I suddenly had to share my income with my dad, two brothers, a sister and a nephew. I prayed that God would give me that heart to get used to this new arrangement. As I prayed in the car, I suddenly understood that this was exactly God's purpose for me - to take care of my family the way that my mom did; to share what I had the way that my mom did. I realized that I now lived for other people and no longer for myself, and felt ashamed of how selfish I had been all my life. At that moment, a bright light flashed in front of me, like the flash of a camera. I was crying, perhaps out of joy. At that moment, I felt that I finally found my place and began to understand what I was meant to do. I felt really calm, a kind of peace that I had never ever felt before. Like my heart finally rested. To this day, I have that peace in my heart. That peace has even vanished the urge to drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes or other substances which I was formerly dependent upon. Nothing short of incredible:)

I had similar experiences - 7 of them. Happend once a month, and sometimes skipped a month. It was the best feelings I had in my entire life.
It happened around midnight, in a dreamstate, but I awoke afterwards. Also felt like electrical currents flowing through my body. Last date was 4th of July 2009 - while it was happening, I was driving out demons in the name of Jesus Christ,and
The demons were gone. I awoke afterwards. Evertime the feeling was so good, I did not want it so stop.

I was at work at the hospital praying with a co-worker. She layed her hands on my shoulder and all of a sudden I felt the rushing wind. The next thing I can remember is that MY ENTIRE BODY was covered with tongues of fire. I told the Holy Spirt that I was ready for him or her to take me to eternity, and that I love Jesus and God so much, and I would do anything for them. I felt like I was high. Oh what a comforting feeling. I have never had such a comforting feeling in my entire life. When ever I think about this experience I get that comforting feeling. This happened 3 years ago. I have always loved God and Jesus and always will. I just don't know why such a wretched person like me was given such a wonderful gift.
I have talked to many people about this Holy Ghost experiene. Some think I am totaly nuts, and I have met a few who have had a similiar experience. None of the people that I have talked to seem to really know. They say God has a special purpose for me.
I was wondering if anyone would have any idea what was the purpose of my reception of the Holy Ghost.
Many Many Thanks,

sorrie I am a bad speller. I had experienced the holy sprit, when I was saved at 16 years old. When the minester asked if I accept christ as my lord and savior and if I believed he died on the cross for my sin to be forgiven, I said yes I believe and accept JESUS in my heart> I began to shake, I felt a charge go through my head to my toes and as if every cell in my body was charged. I began to cry from being overwhelemd with feelings of love, forgivness, content and a peaceful state of mind! It was the most unforgetable, amazing, beautiful feeling I have ever felt in my life. Mind you I am not perfect I am a sad person from all the hurt I have gone through in my life, and the mistakes, and rong I have done, I am far from perfect at my age of 26 but I know without a dout JESUS is alive in my heart forever no matter what. I do not dout, there is a GOD! I know there is and every time I remember that day I feel as if I could just cry From being so happy that GOD loves all of us! AMEN

I googled to see if anyone had a physical reaction such as yours. I had a similar experience happen to me just yesterday. I have been walking with the Lord for years and have had an outpour of the Holy Spirit in the past, but never such as this. Yesterday my pastor asked if anyone had never spoke in tongues would you please come to the front. I was the first one there. For years I had been in the presence of people speaking tongues as well as apart of churches that were more traditional. I had just decided this was not the gift God choose for me. But I have been going through the hardest 3 years of my life and decided I needed all the help I could get. When the nice couple started to pray with me, I just kept saying in my heart " Please come Holy Spirit". All of a sudden, I started speaking in tongues, nothing fancy, but powerful to me. This increased and I soon feel backwards and I cried heavily as I continued to speak, and then, I had an electric jolt that I felt in my head. This was the strongest feeling, I have ever felt, it was so powerful it felt like my head was going to explode out the top. I felt euphoric just like you, and I feel different even now. The reason I googled this was because, the feeling was so intense, it was shocking. I emotionally felt the Lord was erasing a lot of bad memories, and feelings, to give me a new hope on top of his blessings in the past. I have felt there is nothing that can harm me and the closeness of God is just so near. I would love to hear of others with some a similar experience.

I too experienced the same feeling just today! I sat down at my brothers laptop and decided to look up some information on wine and came across a website that explained Jesus and wine and why wine wasn't supposed to be consumed... Well anyway I read the scriptures the website had laid out to prove his points about alcoholism in wine. The website really opened my eyes about wine and all alcohol beverages and at the end of the information posted on the website was few words saying that you should repent and ask God to come in your life and it also said why wait because you might not have tomorrow to do so. Given that I have been putting getting saved off and that my life seemed to be going nowhere fast, frustrated and tired I began to pray asking him to forgive the wrong I've done and that I give him full control of me, it only took about a minute or two I began to experience the charging of my blood cells just rushing to the top of my head overwhelming me and I began to shake, cry and slightly utter soft words uncontrollably. My breathing got heavy my heart felt full and then just like that it stopped at a even pace. The experience was unlike I ever felt before but also a bit puzzling I guess you can say. After that my head was clear, my worries are gone, I feel relieved and stress free. Well anyway God bless and I hope that my story to will inspire more people to try the lord!

Some years ago, I used to meditate on the love of God to send His only Son to die for us. It seemed preposterous to me that the Great Magnificat should suffer such humiliation.

I prayed to God to say that He expects us to love Him above all else yet we can express our love by embracing others but Him whom we must love above all, we cannot embrace so how can we show our love

While praying, became very melancholic. Told God that if only I could experience Him just to embrace Him to tell Him that I loved Him.

I did not expect anything unusual to happen. Suddenly there was a mighty force like a very powerful wind hit the side of our house. I thought it was a fighter jet about to crash but there was this incredible peace that the incredible noise did not disburb me.

Then I felt my body begin to ripple as though I was on a water bed and at the same time a gentle breeze was heard over head to pass out of the window. It was perfectly calm night and there were no breazes.

When the feeling passed over and through me, I felt an incredible peace that I just wanted to die right there and go with the Spirit which passed through me.

I turned to my wife [who normally sleeps so lightly she hears a pin drop], I said 'wow what about that then'. To my amazement I could not wake her. I shook her quite violently to wake her but it was as if she was anaethematised. She just could not be woken.

I asked God to take me. Believe me that is the rason why God appears distant from us. To experience Him, you just do not want to live, you want to be with Him. He wants us to live. So that we do not lose the will to live, He remains distant from us.

From that day to this, I will never understand why God visited me that night. All I know is that when we meet HIM face to face, it will be so joyous. We are attracted to Him like iron filings to a magnet...

I cannot prove to you that God exists but from my OWN experience can testify that He does. To Him be the glory for ever and ever amen.

I too had a similar experience a few nights ago while sitting on my bed and praying, before turning in for the night.
A close friend and her family having been going through some harrowing experiences of spiritual warfare. Her son especially, has been a target.
I had been praying about 45 minutes regarding other situations, before asking God to send the Holy Spirit to intervene. I began praying specifically for this boy, when I suddenly felt a strange, warm, tingling feeling descend on me from the top of my head to every other part of my body; al the way to my feet. My tongue became heavy as I prayed.
I became frightened as I have never experienced this ever before in my life!
I am still very overwhelmed by this experience and have sought counsel with a priest. I have always believed in the power of the Almighty Father God, and yet I have been totally bowled over by this experience.

Yes I experienced something similar. Though for me instead of that energy coming from my toes it started at the top of my head and moved down my body slowly. As it passed it felt like my cells were energized too. I think it is very difficult to explain this feeling to someone who has not experienced it. There is a woman who had an experience very close to your own in that she too was in a church and had the same experience that you describe the only difference was her seeing a white light in addition.

Yes, I had an experience of the Holy Spirit, but not as profound as yours. I am still waiting. I have on several times, but most clearly after drinking the precious blood of Jesus, in the Mass. All this emotion welled up and suddenly I was weeping, and looking at the people in the pews ahead of me, and others proceeding to receive the body of Christ, and just felt so much love for them. After the tears stopped, a joy came over me, and I just could not help smiling. There were no thoughts just the weeping then the joy. I received the Holy Spirit. Prior to drinking from the cup, I was speaking to Jesus mentally, of course I had just taken the host and I believe I was thanking him, and I don't recall what else I was saying.

Hey I had this. It happened to me in a dreamstate prayer state asleep but I awoke after it happened and felt like it there was electrical currents flowing all over my body and I could heal and bring life into anything my hands touched. It felt like I was raptured when that lightning shotgun shot through me. It shot me straight up and felt so invinsible when it happened in the twinkling of an eye. Amazing. Yesterday I had another experience that was heavy duty Holy Spirit flowing through me and waves of Love hitting me. Amazing. Jesus is soooo good! I've been confessing that Jesus Is God many times a day lately and yesterday was confirmation it is true I believe the Holy Spirit worked on me big time which is Jesus. He spoke to me so clear on something that happened. I was driving, mergin onto a highway behind a huge truck and trailer with a large boat. I believe it was Jesus told me watch out, stay back, don't get too close. And he flashed an image in my head of the trailer backing up almost hitting me. I slowly backed up. And next thing you know, the truck in front of me, its transmission "blew" and it had to back up almost hitting me. In fact other drivers asked me if he hit me. Long story short. I crossed over lanes parked on the side. Got out of my vehicle and helped divert traffic to get the truck and trailer/boat to back up into a grassy area. Then I went to talk to him to tell him the vision God gave me. He looked at me in disbelief as did his son in the car. They were waiting on a tow and so I left after they said they were alright. The amazing thing is before this vision, the Lord gave me the vision that He was bestowing the healing power in me. Wow. I take the second event as confirmation that the first image was true too. My friend and I went to go pray for a patient with stomach cancer in the hospital right after. All praise to God, revealed to us through Jesus Christ. I can't wait for the report on this persons healing. Jesus is God.

I studied with Jehovah's Witnesses for two years. After not joining with their congregation, but agreeing on so many of their beliefs and meditating and praying several times a day for a year, I experienced a euphoric feeling for exactly two weeks. It was a complete overwhelming feeling of love, peace and joy. All anger, sadness, insecurities and emptiness was gone for that short amount of time. I did research shortly after the feeling left me and someone posted that it was called the "Honeymoon period". I've never experienced it again, but strongly believe it was God showing me what we will feel when Jesus comes to reign on earth. (guest)

You guys, I saw the cloven toungue of fire cross my living room and enter my body in the chest area,[the heart], after it entered, it ran to my feet like water and then proceded to fill my body with, what felt like warm golden sparkles and when it had filled me up to my armpits, it ran again likr water to my finger tips and then again with the golden sparkles thing until it had filled me to the top of my head! I kid you not! Ilove you all, keep the faith!

Now I will tell you an amazing thing. I get up early to spend time with My Jesus (Our Jesus) and as I switched on my computer and went to Mozilla fox instead of the usual Yahoo coming up It opened at this sight and your blog! No reason that I can think of except the direct intervention of the Holy Spirit. I read with delight what you had written and it was just what I needed to hear.
God bless you. Don't give up your Catholic Faith and take the Eucharist as often as you can and go to confession alot. There is much waiting for you as you continue to give your life to Jesus. It may not always be accompanied by feelings as we have to learn to walk by faith too. Mother Theresa of Calcutta was stripped of spiritual feelings and just continued in blind obedience to her task and look where she has gotten to and achieved for the Kingdom.

i am greatly touched by your story, it is so good to see that you ran to the cross in a time of need. What a good place for refuge! My mother literally said the same thing-giving her life completey to christ saying that her future is in his hands. And just a couple weeks later she met her (now) husband. And things have turned completly around. But I want you to know that no matter what plans God has for you, he loves you more than you can ever understand. And things that are good can come crashing down around you, but that is where the true test stands-will you allow the sufficient grace of God to carry you further? I do hope that you remember that the holy spirit feels the way you felt that day. Work daily towards finding that feeling. I find the best way to feel the holy spirit is listening to a song that brings your relatioship with God even CLOSER! Its so hard to misteak that feeling for anyting else. You just know the spirit is ALWAYS with you. And will never leave, whatever your life does for you.

Yes something very similar happened to me only it also included a vision. I talked to a priest about it and he validated that it was The Holy Spirit giving me the vision. One cannot describe the extreme thunderbolt of Love and Power that overcame me. And then the vision. The euphoria put me in ecstacy and I did not want it to end. Keep going to church and getting to know God. God has a purpose for you and He is letting you know it.

A lot of people when they become Christians and in worship will feel similar sorts of things.
Those sorts of things are very, very common in my own life in prayer. The "floating" sort of feeling strikes me as sounding like what many Charismatic and Evangelical Christians would refer to as the feeling of the "presence of God." A lot of them will discribe it as if being wrapped up in a warm blanket. It is a physical feeling, and new Christians will frequently comment on it as they are not used to that sort of thing, wheras I think people who have known the Lord well for a while kind of get used to it! It is a very nice, warm, happy feeling, but can also be quite intense sometimes/ go along with quite intense (favorably so) feelings. I once prayed with one person to become a Christian, and they started telling me something about how they (physically) felt different. The closest thing I've come up with for an explanation is that it is kind of like God hugging me.
You might be interested in the book "The Practice of the Presence of God." by Brother Laurence (he was a lay brother in a monastary, who was very close to the Lord.) It's old, so you might be able to find it free if you google it. (If you pay for it you can get one in updated English).
