Hello my nameis Ana, i just found this website and feel like sharing my thoughts I feel lost now.. cant see clear.. but i have seen. I had a strong connection and where able to go trough life without ANY fear with total confidence and love. I understood how easy the univers "works" and howdifficult we make it. I understood that its so easy that we actually cant BELIEVE it. I just feltloved and was so thankfull the whole time, i didnt judge. i loved to give, i respected completelly. I saw heaven on earth.but I realised after a time.. that poeple aound me would not see this. It was making me a bit sad and i started thinking (!!) that it was not fair, how could I deserve to be aware of this and so few people didnt and where suffering of things they dont have to . It was beeing to "much" for me..i pushed it away. I pushed this feelings away and went back. I think i went back because i obviously missed someting or to rebuilt the ground, repair a column.. i believe we maybe have to sometimesf"forget" this connection in order to learn something new and grow. or is it just us. is it us that were told and teached that the only way to learn is suffering. I miss the deeep love i was feeling for my self and everything and everybody that surronded me. I try to resist the feelings of fear or anger or sadness or notpacience, not understanding and forgiving all anymore for whatevery they do knowing that its their path and not my and that i also allowed this and atracted it for some rason. I am beeing in that state but having lived and experienced something more pure. I look back , like i look to a gone cloud trying to see it again but i understand that you must be open to changes , to transformation and that everything that happens is for good. I feel the fear of going the wrong path, i ask myself if i might be going the "wrong" one , even if i know ther is just one path we always go. I feel i am here in this planet to help others to love others to teach them to love and heal themsels. I am aware that i have to overcome also a lot of things but i would love to just be doing my "work" here without suffering.. I prayto god, to help me and i know god does. But i cant hear his voice as clear as i did see his signs as as i know my mind is speaking loud. why do we sometimes make us suffer if we know better. not value us enaugh,be to ruff to us-
I pray that light iluminates my body and reliefs me fromthis , to work with awareness and fulfill what i came for. Or do i pass rought this phases in order to understand human life better--
i am sure somebody understands how i am feeling, as i am not alone--- i just needed to write these words-!

I don't necessarily wake up every morning at 3 but it does happen often. More often though, I cannot fall asleep until well after 3, usually around 3:40 or so. I have also noticed, in just the last few years, that the number 3 continually appears in my daily life, the time, the date, a radio station, my wedding anniversary was 3/3 @ 3:00...that was not planned, we "eloped", by the way... that was my 3rd marriage! I could go on and on about the moments and areas of my life that the number 3 pops up... its usually a set of at least two 3's or a set of three 3's. No other number pops up nearly as often. Am I just looking for it to happen? Now even my boyfriend (3 marriages were enough!) has noticed how often 3 pops up around me... like the total of our groceries will have 3's in it, the mileage in the car... I don't understand it.View Thread

Hi, I'm a 17 year old girl looking for some answers. I will start off by saying for the past week i have been having nightmares which are causing me to wake up at 3 am on the dot, no later and no earlier. When I wake up I'm covered in sweat and crying and screaming.
In my dream its pitch black but there is a little bright light in the distance. I'm in someone else's body. She's an old lady with long hair and wrinkly skin. nothing happens but her laughing and then she screams and thats when I wake up at 3am also screaming and covered in sweat.
Someone help me figure out what it means please.View Thread

I haven't been here in awhile, how is everybody doing? I was reading some of the things Sebastianlondo, Faithinpraying, a few other people and I wrote. I was hoping maybe you found your way to being closer to God. He has a different relationship with each and everyone of us, but they will all be close ones. As close as we let him. He made every person from him and out of his pure love. I mean a part of him, like DNA, so you have a direct link to him like your blood father.
I use to here people say they turned there whole life over to God and I didn't know what they meant.(I bet half of them didn't turn over there WHOLE life, they just thought they did.) I only say that because it's so hard to do and it takes a lot of practice for some people.(me) I didn't learn how to do it until I was 50, but that's because I'm a hard head, control freak! Everyday I try to do better.
I started out talking to him like a best friend, then he became my father, mother, sister and brother. You know how you might be having a problem so big, that you just don't know what to do with it? All you do is think and worry about it so much, that you can't come up with a solution. When that happens, turn to God and say, "Here, I'm giving this problem to you, your shoulders are stronger and you are wiser." Then, you have to forget about it, don't think about it another second. If you start to, stop yourself by saying a little prayer, or saying it's in God's hands now. You should feel like a weight is lifted from your shoulders the min. you give it to God. He tells us to do that in the Bible and he promises to take care of it, what ever it is. If you don't feel the weight lifted, then say it again. That's how you start turning your life over to him.
I'm having a bit of a dilemma and I'm trying to hear Gods answer. I had a mastectomy 2yrs. ago and was planning to have reconstructive surgery. My surgery is scheduled for this Wed., and I don't think God wants me to have it. For the last month I've been waiting for him to tell me what to do. I'm not getting it for vanity reasons, I just want to be the whole person that I was before they butchered me. I don't know if the feeling of doubt is coming from me being afraid of the surgery, or God. I can say this much, I haven't had this feeling for years, not since I learned to trust and hear God. Now, for some reason I can't hear him or I'm not listening to him. That scares me, because I don't want to do the wrong thing! I guess I just ans. myself, I'm not suppose to get it. Oh well. Thank you for listening to me.

I work at Home Depot and my coworker has this disgusting rash on her face and neck. It is red on her face and neck but in the middle of her neck it is turning green and black and is positively disgusting. She was sent home the first day it was noticeable and was instructed to see a doctor. Now, she LIVES to come to work and makes us put up with a lot of stuff like her nose exploding with spinal fluid and blood so this is especially worrisome because it EXPLODES and if it's a bacterial infection in her bloodstream then we could get it. She SAYS it is probably not contagious ANYMORE (but was at one time?) but when me and other coworkers confronted our managers about a doctor's note they didn't have one. They just took her word for it. It looks like it's getting worse and more black and green, so gross that a lot of us have purchased our own disinfectant supplies to sanitize everything before touching things. Additionally, it seems like she is purposely doing things that could spread it, like sticking her hand in bags of chips, into our food and utensil boxes, and into the INSIDE of cups and things we all use. I have filed a report with HD but I don't know if anyone knows of anything else I can do to prevent it spreading if it is contagious or who else I can contact. I'm concerned for us, her coworkers, and for the 100's of customers she interacts with daily. Help!View Thread
Come on guys, doesn't anybody feel like asking something about God? Doesn't anybody have any miracle that's happened to them or around them? Does anybody want to talk about God, or how he's effected there life today?
Do you want to talk about if he's real or not, why some people believe in him and some don't? In all your years of living, has he ever helped you, or maybe saved you?
When I was going through chemotherapy. Why didn't the needles hurt me, why didn't I vomit everyday(like all the other patients in the room). Why wasn't I ever in bone pain, and one really weird question is, why wasn't I scared that I would die, when I had stage 4 breast cancer? Why did I wake up happy everyday, for the 9mo. of chemo? My sister and I laughed at each other for the 4hrs. a day, 4days a week, that I was there. (accidentally, making everybody else laugh) My reaction to the medication wasn't written in any-book, that we read, the nurse's and my oncologist couldn't figure it out. Why didn't I go insane after they amputated (yes, that's what I call it, amputation) my breast? I only had to see a shrink 3times, to help me adjust to having my breast amputated,(which in my mind, made me no longer a woman, but a eunuch) Why did I get over that devastation in only one month?
I contribute all of it from God. The minute I got over the shock of hearing the word Breast Cancer, I went home and begged God to take over this whole situation, because there was no way my mind could handle any of it. The next morning when I awoke, I could instantly feel somebody inside my body, making me think, walk, talk and make decisions that I knew nothing about. My oncologist would say I had to do this or that and I never was afraid. One day he asked me why and I said because God (not you) is running this whole show. He look so shocked, and said, "you must have really strong faith."
When my surgeon did my mastectomy, it could have been the janitor doing it, because I asked God to please use this mans hand and for God to do the surgery. Three different doctors, who have seen me since I healed, all asked me who did the mastectomy? They said it was the best job they had ever seen. Those are just some of the miracles that have happened to me, there are a lot more. Plus I've seen a lot of them happen to other people. Thank you for listening to me, I hope that it might make somebody else say something about God, after all, we are on the Spirituality board.

Posted by An_251169
I am a mom of 5 and a lot of things have been happening in our lives... Having greek blood and our religion we take the blessing cup light it with scents and walk around the house blessing it and talking to god. I just started this a week ago and ever since something has been happening. Everynight I shut the door to our playroom upstairs and close the blinds and I make sure the light is off. My kids see me do this. Every morning when we get up. The blinds are open and the light is on and the door is open to this room... My kids and I are witness to this and I know I am not loosing my mind. Trying to find out what this means and is god trying to tell me something. It just started when I started blessing our home. I feel it is a good thing not bad. So, that makes me feel at ease.View Thread
I read an article in the news paper recently and If I never believed in God, I would, after reading this. A man saved some kid from drowning about 30yrs. ago. Then one day 30yrs later, this same man stopped to help a car broken down on the side of the road. A big tractor trailer was getting ready to slam right into the back of the car. The guy got everybody out of the car and out of the way, before there car was hit. Afterwards the too men were talking and the guy who almost got killed said,"you look familiar." Where as, the older guy said,"your not that kid who almost drowned, yrs. ago, are you?" The younger guy said,"your not the man who saved me from dying, that's impossible. They both were freaked out, when the older guy said,"yes, I saved your life twice, what are the odds of that happening?"
Then I have my own miracles, I've experienced. Like having chemo, and turning and trusting God completely, to be with me through the whole thing. I never became ill,(all the others did) I never lost my appetite, never was tired, and I never threw up. My doctor would try to act normal while watching me be like a normal person. My white cells dropped to 0, yet I never became ill. After every treatment, when I went home, it was like I was on speed. Not like all the others, who had to go to bed. Oh yes, I could feel him inside me every step of the way. Since that experience, one year ago, I have no fear. No fear of anything, because God will protect any and everybody who ask. He never says no, all you have to do is ask and believe like a little child does(worthy or not because nobody is really worthy)View Thread
My viewpoint of reality is that every single person has the FREE WILL to choose how they want to live their reality.
If you REALLY start to think about it more closely, what you perceive as "reality" is truly UNIQUE, only to YOU.
Now picture as well that anyone else has what they perceive as "reality". And to each individual, it is a completely UNIQUE reality to them.
Here is an example: A guy named John and a guy named Adam are walking together down a quiet neighborhood street and suddenly a small child who had been playing in a nearby yard suddenly darts into the road, and is struck by a slow moving car.
The child isn't killed, but is seriously hurt... there is blood everywhere, the person operating the vehicle is hysterical with horror at what he has done... People are rushing out of their homes, the child's mother comes running out, crying and freaking out!
Ok, so in this case, John's perception of "reality" in this moment, this horrific accident, is unique even when compared to Adam. Adam also witnessed the same event, but since he is a sovereign being of God, witnesses it in his unique way.
Each one will form different emotions about the accident. Both will form their own ways to deal with it, talk about it. For that is our God-given POWER.
What if John started becoming depressed over watching that event. What if he had lost someone in an accident. Well this is how he perceived this situation.
What if Adam noticed that the guy driving the car was texting. Well what if he became inspired to talk to everyone he met the dangers of texting while driving... This is Adam's perception of the event.
What about the parents of the child, or the child herself? All these people were touched by a single event. But EACH and EVERY individual has the right to make of the situation what they will.
If only people realized the freedom that comes with truly knowing this truth... that no matter what you experience in life, Y - O - U have the C H O I C E to meet any situation realizing other people's reality doesn't have to be yours!
If someone rapes you, for example, you do not have to let their choices be yours. You can accept it, forgive the perpetrator, and be truly FREED from the negative situation.
To conclude, realize the potential freedom of allowing your free will to not be infringed upon, while at the same time accepting that every person has the free will choice to live as they want. In doing this, you will be walking down the path of true spiritual englightenment, regardless of whatever belief you hold of God, or what religion you identify with.

I was sleeping. I woke up randomly, at 3am, and turned towards my girlfriend and her head was all the way to the side and was looking right at me with her eyes closed. I freak out, and strarted yelling 'hey! hey! hey!' She replied 'what, what is it?!' So I told her what happened, and she said 'no I wasnt' She had no idea what was going on until I started yelling at her. I have no word of lie.

I am very spiritual and I do believe in God! I too wake up at 3am almost every morning as if I am waiting or anticipating for something. It seems that a lot of people around the world has the same issue. I just pray and ask for guidance and whatever is needed of me, I will abide by it.View Thread

Nancy, i love you i havent heard from you in two weeks and am beginging to worrry so please get in touch with me soon. Also, if i dont talk to you before i hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know that my husband and i plan on having a good on this year. I am actually going to cook my first turkey this year. I am excited. Also, I am glad that God is taking care of me and my hubby. When it seems like there is no hope in sight God shows up and says it is going to be ok there is nothng to worry about. I worry alot about bills and everything but I know that God is right there and he will never leave us nor forsake us. If i just turn it over to him he is going to take care of it. HE always does.View Thread
Freaking out! I have been waking up at 3 am for a little over 2 years that I remember. I always toss and turn, but I have the urge to look at the clock at exactly 3 am everynight. Last night I looked at the clock at 3 am and rolled over to face the bedroom door, everything was normal and quiet, then all of the sudden the lamp in my son's room turns on. I looked at the clock and it was 3:02. So i got up to check on my boy's who were all asleep on the couch in the living room, where they had fallen asleep the night before. No one was in my boy's room. I went in and turned the lamp off and went to back to bed. I then decided this was abnormal until I read this blogg. I alway's feel the need to pray when I awake. I need answers please. I feel like someone or something is trying to tell me something.View Thread
I fear GOD and I was wondering...Does apostasy happen in the church? According to what I read,apostasy is a falling away from sound doctrine and the rules that go with it. Will god forgive me if I go to church that dosent apply sound doctrine ? My church does whatever they please. Does anyone know the rules the churches are to go by? Also, I read that the sabbath will not be reinstated until christ comes back. Then Israel will be the place of worship where the nations will go every year to after christ return. Any ideas>View Thread
Our sweet kitty passed away from cancer this past sunday, after being dignosed last week wednesday. The past 2 nights I have woken up at 3am on the dot. The first night, as soon as I awoke, our other cat came quickly into our room, meowing in alarm, nudged my hand, jumped on the bed, then left meowing. This morning, I awoke @ 3 again, no cat visit this time, but again, 3. I don't feel like anything is wrong, but like I should be doing something or checking something. I have read many posts about 3am being when the spiritual world is closest to ours, and that is when God allows loved one spirits to check on us. If it happens again, should I walk my home to see if a certain feline spirit is felt? Should I snap some pics in her old laying spots? Advice is appreciated, thxView Thread
Fascinating to read all these stories. I identify with many of them. I find it really interesting that I wake up at 3am on the spot... not 2:59, not 3:01. I am a Christian (follower of Christ), and my very first thought.. well, after being a bit freaked out, is who I should pray for. I pray and then I go quickly back to sleep.
I read on some other sites that 12-3AM is considered the 'witching hour', so if there is some merit to this, it is at the end of the 'witching hour' in which I am called to pray.
Anyway, I really identify with one person who wrote that they don't even look at the clock, because he will know what time it will be! I wanted to add my story to the list and I'll keep praying at 3 AM.View Thread

My neurosurgeon was Fri., and the tumor hasn't grown any! That's the great news. The bad news is, now I have to go to another doctor for my migraines,(a neurologist) and pay again!

They could have told me this on the phone, and I would have made my appt. with a neurologist, instead of having to pay for the same kind of doc twice! $$$$ All they care about is money!

Ever since I was a little girl, I would see things... And of course I'm sure you have heard of the shadow people... I see them all the time. It got more intense when I started using drugs with my husband... Anyway last night (07/18/2012), I was so depressed and I felt real lonely and bored my children had gone to visit their Father (we have been apart for 6 yrs), so I started drinking heavily and popping pills and snorting some lines (I know stupid, I'm too old)...around 1030 at night I opened my window, I was really up there but I started getting nervous, I started seeing shadows within the trees just mocking me and laughing, I was like," yea it's time to go to bed, you are tripping bad"...so I closed my window turn off the lights and started watching Tv, by this time I took some cough medicine so I could get sleepy, and I was, I looked towards my window and I saw "Death", I did not pay too much attention because every time I see him, someone in my family dies. So I said a quick prayer and turned to the TV, where I saw death again in the TV!I'm was like, "O Father God, what is going on"...this I remember I started seeing demons, I went to this deep sleep, and I could feel my soul being taken away, I can't tell you the exact time, all remember was at 322am my nephew was in my room and he told me "auntie it's time for you to wake up", he even shook me, I said "why it's too early?" he replied, "do you not remember you telling me to wake u up as soon as you get back",I did not pay too much attention to him and rolled over, then it hit me, how did he get in my room when it was locked? How did he get out? The Lord showed me that the angel was disguised as my nephew,I'm assuming so I would not get scared. I remember there was a bright light around him he was dressed in all white.
I died and angel of God woke me up to give me a second chance.I'm still in shock, and I'm writing and I can't stop crying.
"Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you."Revelation 3:3...Father God I just Thank You!

I use to wake up at 3am some years ago and was told it was the witches hours so everytime I woke up at 3 I was paranoid about it. Just tonight I hear Perry Stone a biblical Scholar teach on the signifigance of 3 am prayer as in relate with Christ Jesus. I advised Christians for every experience that you have go to your bible and search it first. Don't be turned away from your faith. These are the last days as God has warned. Don't be decieved. Whatever we need to know the Holy spirit will bring it to us even if it is 3 years later lol. I googled so I can get the scriptures myself and now if I wake up at 3 im prayer to God.View Thread

I was born and raised in a christian setting, church every sunday morning and evening, and wednesday nights. My parents always made sure my brother and I know the rightous paths. When I became a pre-teen I became part of the youth group at church. As I got older I participated in numerous church activities: sunday school teacher for kids, choir director, youth group leader. Always praising God and knowing that without him I am nothing.
I got married, had a daughter, always stayed close to God. We moved 4 hours away from the spiritual community I grew up with, but still went to church, though not as active as before. My husband and I started having problems in our relationship, but we tried working through it and still together.
My brother passed away due to a motorcycle accident in Nov. 2005 and it hit us really hard. It was an unexpected death of a young 32 year old and a great man. Although I had a lot of questions, I had faith in God and understood that there is a purpose to everything.
Three years later my mother passed away from complications due to illness. This, too, took us by surprise. I wasn't angy with God, but now I questioned Him. I later learned that while all this was going on, my husband was having an affair and had a baby on the way. We got a divorce and I lost everything in the process. Now, I was angry.
This was about 3 years ago and since the divorce we have moved on. He remarried and had his baby, I met a wonderful guy and we live together with my daughter, now 15 yrs old. The marriage idea scares me a little, but I know Biblicly it's wrong that we are living together. (My ex-husband has to remind me of that all the time)
I haven't gone to church in years. I always say I'm going to go back, but I always have an excuse. I know that Jesus is the way and God has the power to move mountains, but my mind is filled with so many contradictions now. Why does it seem like God doesn't listen to me anymore? If God knows what is best and it's His will, then why do we even have to ask him for things through prayer? I fear that my faith has dwindled and to everything that I've learned while I was growing up I have to doubt or question. Am I letting evil enter my home?
How can I motivate myself to do what's right? I feel like I'm so lost.View Thread
