An Angel Saved My Life!

Nell is fascinated by all things supernatural and one of her favorite subjects is Angels as she firmly believes she has met one!

God and psychic experiences
God and psychic experiences

For everybody who knows me, they will know that I am a psychic skeptic, with a dash of scientific proof added in.

I try to analyse every single psychic experience by checking off a list of yes's no's and maybe's.

But sometimes you just have to take it like it is. And see that actually something special really did happen that night.

For some reason I got helped by the higher power, God, call it what you will. Or maybe it was just a dream. Who knows? One thing I do know is that it healed me that night. And that's what matters.

Feeling Poorly.

I was so ill. I had always been a sickly child but this time my bronchitis has got me in its grip and I just couldn't shake it off. I started to sweat, my breath was coming in stuttering dribs and drabs and I felt like I had been hit by a truck.

This had gone on for a few days and my mother was getting really worried by this time. She was planning on getting me into hospital if I wasn't a bit better by the next day. She had cause to worry, because when I was eight years old I nearly died. I had bronchitis and by the time I was rushed to hospital I had a collapsed lung.

I was in the Ward for nearly six weeks. To this day I couldn't listen to Mary Hopkins song, Those were the Days, without thinking of that time.

Small wooden house.
Small wooden house.

Into The Dream.

This particular night, exhaustion took me, and I fell asleep as though someone had drugged me.

The second my eyes closed I was out. And even before I realised I was asleep I found myself walking across grass. It was daylight.

I could smell the air, it was so real and the trees were shushing to my left and right.

In front of me was a wooden one storey shack or building. It looked like those houses you get in the old American films with a veranda at the front with chairs and a wooden table.

As I walked towards it, my feet took me to the wooden steps and up to the door.

Playing Pool or snooker

It Feels So Real!

As I opened the wooden door, I could hear voices. Chattering and laughing, and a sound like a tap on a table. No, it was snooker or Pool, and it was the sound of the cue hitting the ball. That's what it sounded like. Slowly I went in, still feeling that the whole experience was too real for my liking.

The light hit me, and the smell of polish and fruit. There were people all around. Some playing Pool on my right, and some standing at a bar to my left. There was a barmaid cleaning a glass with a cloth, and many people sitting or standing at the bar.

As I entered properly they all looked at me and smiled. Then carried on with their games or chat.

Walking up to the bar the barmaid said, 'What can I get you?'

I muttered something like 'Orange juice please'.

Looking around I noticed just how much life was there. It seemed full but it wasn't. Laughter filled the rafters and everyone was smiling and having fun.

When she gave me the drink I could feel the cold against my skin. And the condensation running down the glass dripped onto my fingers.

'This feels so real!' I said, totally confused. I then ran my fingers over the bar top. I could feel the grain of the wood, and smooth coldness of the polished surface.

A guy standing next to me smiled and said. 'Of course its real, why wouldn't it be?'

In The Presence of Angels?

'What's happening?' I asked. 'I want to know what's going on, why am I here?'

The barmaid smiled, and with a nod of her head towards the other end of the bar while still keeping eye contact with me, she said, 'He has the answers you are looking for'.

I looked along the bar, and there, right at the end by the back wall stood a man.

And what a man he was!

He was all dressed in white. His coat, trousers and shoes. But the most amazing thing was his hair. It was snowy white. Even his eyebrows were white.

And his face was serene and clean shaved.

He seemed to emanate a glow, but I presumed it was just the light shining on the wooden polished wall behind him.

So, picking up my drink I walked slowly towards him.


 In The Presence of God.
In The Presence of God.

His Aura Was White.

As I got near he turned from watching the game and smiled at me. He was leaning on the bar, his right arm casually on the wood, and his left hand holding his right.

As I got near him his smile was so soft, all fear fell away.

So I asked, 'Excuse me, why am I here?'

He answered in the softest warmest voice I have ever heard.

'Because you are very ill. We brought you here to heal, and you must stay here all night until your body is better. We will look after your soul, so that your body can rest without you feeling distressed'. 'It needs to be completely relaxed so that the healing process can work. Stay, enjoy yourself until morning, you are safe'.

I looked at him. I could feel the love and warmth coming from him, and I suddenly felt totally relaxed and happy. I remember that he smiled at me, and indicated the pool table. So I smiled and walked away.

The rest of the night seemed to go really fast, and not much was remembered. But then I found myself at the door once again.

I pulled it open, then turned back to look into the room once again. He was still in the corner, and He smiled.

I walked out, and shut the door. I looked down at my feet as I walked. There was the edge of the veranda, then I placed one foot on the first step, then the second, then the third. Finally I felt the grass under my feet once again.

Three steps across the grass, then, I opened my eyes. It was morning. I was in my bed.

And I felt much better.


Walking on grass
Walking on grass

I was fifteen years old. And this is a true story that I still remember in vivid color. Who was the Man? What was I doing there? Was it a dream? Was it an Angel?

Or did I meet God in a Bar, so that he could heal me? It took a few days for me to feel really well, but I just know something special happened that night.

      Really? I've never heard of entanglement (except for a bunch of cords LOL).

      That sounds very interesting. I'll have to look that up. I never understand quantum physics, but it's quite compelling.

      Thanks, Nell. Take care.

      Hi Huntgoddess, yes that's so true, each and everyone of us know that we need interaction, and we are all connected, even in quantum physics there is a thing called entanglement, it explains it very well, thanks as always, nell

      Huntgoddess 2 years ago from Midwest U.S.A.

      Yes, Nell.

      So true. Whatever you choose to call that something.

      The important thing to me is --- We human beings are all interconnected.

      Even little newborn babies have an attraction to the human face. That is why it is important to make eye contact with babies. They can actually become disturbed by lack of eye contact.

      Hello Nell! I have heard many stories similar to this one. The best one was from one of my brothers. He had a job that was a 45 minute commute from his college dorm throughout most of his final years at university. He fell asleep one night just after he had turned onto the highway and woke up right before his turn off- about 35 minutes later. While away, he went surfing on the most beautiful beach he had ever seen with perfect wave after perfect wave. He said there were other people there but he didn't pay them much attention, but one guy who felt like a buddy he had known all his life asked for his car keys and said he was going to take care of his car. When he woke he felt like he was better rested than he'd been in years. He was also much more careful about driving when he was really tired at night after this. He told no one until about ten years later because he thought we would worry about his mind. If you knew him, he is the last person on earth to make up a story that makes him look less perfect in any way.

      Hi Laurie, Aw thanks so much! I really appreciate all your reading today of my hubs, hope you are having a wonderful day, nell

      Rayne123 2 years ago

      Hi Nell, I agree with Jama

      We are given dreams for a reason and if something stands out not quite to what would normally happen, then there is a message behind it.

      I always remember dreams, well the ones that I am supposed to remember. I don't really believe in the idea of writing them down on awakening, (for me anyway) I believe that if we were meant to remember it will never go away. I remember dreams I had like years ago actually and sometimes even have dreams of what I will dream of the next night lol, although that one doesn't happen often at all.

      However it sounds like God send you an Angel to heal you, and to believe. I almost feel like you are chosen to help people understand the spirit world. From reading your amazing hubs and having conversations with you, it almost feels like you are send as an angel at times yourself.

      I know when I am thinking something and then the answer comes from wherever and this morning it was one of your hubs as it has been in the past.

      I like that your skeptic about the medium/tarot card world, yet have the gift to be able to understand it very well. I also believe that your hub on tarot reading was meant to help those understand a few things in their lives. You use your gifts wisely, the way you are guided to do so. Thank you for that.

      So needless to say, God has healed you for whatever reason, that I believe you know the answer to. You were 15 and here you are helping others through your hubs and probably in other ways.

      We are never to question a good thing, but to accept it as a miracle/gift.

      Blessings

      Laurie

      Hi Genee, Wow, that's amazing! and yes I can quite believe it! 80 feet tall? that is some help! things happen that I think we can never ever be sure of in the way of proof, but what we see is real and what we feel too, thanks for sharing that amazing story! And I am glad you were okay, nell

      Joanna McKenna 3 years ago from Central Oklahoma

      Dearest Nell, if you'd gone to sleep and found yourself in the local bakery or on the school playground or some other place you normlly went at 15, would you have been compelled to ask "Why am I here?"? Probably not, right? It would've been "just" a dream, right? But a bar in an old shack got your attention, right?

      Whatever works, I say.

      Psst... Don't tell anybody but an angel (or Jesus?) kept me and my children safe coming down the west side of Flagstaff Mountain in Arizona when my car had a faulty steering gear that had supposedly been fixed before we started out. It wasn't a dream, of course. I was wide awake - totally awake! - and it was broad daylight, but there was definitely an 80-foot-tall Somebody in luminous Biblical-era garb with outstretched arms out in front of the car all the way down. I am by no means a devoutly-religious person, so this experience is burned in my memory in the same way as your meeting (God?).

      Upped and shared! ;D

      Hi Nell Rose.

      Sooo challenging. You are the only -one to know. For us (me ) to believe or not. One thing though, we never question God or His ways of dealing. Then in my case - having been many times forced to discern the origin of "events"- I go to the Scriptures for the answers after asking the lead of the Holy Spirit's confirmation by the inner peace. Worked probably for you too. God is in healing business, always was ( the manifestation by Jesus' earthly ministry)- and goes on, and on. It would be beneficial to go to Him in every our need and accept His love for us.

      Voted up and beautiful.

      Awesome, Nell. I am so happy for you to have met this being and that the Creator needed you to return to the rest of us for awhile :)

      I've had a couple of "pronounced dead" incidents, and both times returned knowing there is much more than just this mortal plane. Of course, the cynics who have never had this kind of experience will always come up with some medically plausible fairytale to "explain" what they don't want to understand.

      Great Hub, thanks for sharing and voted up.

      Hi Faith, I think the bar was just the fact that I had been going to youth bars, which look like pubs but are in fact just juice bars, but look the same with pool tables etc, maybe my mind picked the place I felt familiar with inside, but the outside was really strange, as we don't have houses like that over here, thanks so much for reading, nell

      Nell, I have often felt that sometimes dreams are just dreams but sometimes they are a place for visitations - from the dead, from angels, from God Himself. I had a dream long ago in which Jesus spoke to me. I was walking on a grassy verge by a bay and saw Him sitting on a hill in a lawn chair. I would never pester Him with my problems but He met my eyes and came down to explain that my worries were nothing. He ordered me never to worry about my particular concern. Well He was right. The future that held me in such pain was erased and everything turned out beautifully. I always felt that this was a visitation.

      Your story is beautiful. And you were healed, thank God.

    • Faith Reaper profile image

      Faith Reaper 3 years ago from southern USA

      Thank you for sharing your amazing experience of healing and your dream. God is omnipresent no doubt, and I know without a doubt He heals. Your experience would be a great addition to the M & M series as it is a true experience and that is what is published. I was asked to contribute to the very first one. The proceeds go to great causes.

      I have had many experiences, though not in a dream but in life of miracles and experiences of angels protecting me. Even my daughter, who is grown now, remembers an experience from when she was five, and I saw a golden bright light coming from her room, as my bedroom was across the hall. The next morning she told me she saw God or Jesus, but it could very well have been her guardian angel, and she described him to me and the light, which was exactly what I saw coming out of her room.

      I believe God healed you and there are many things this side of heaven that we will not understand. The significance of the bar is interesting and it may very well be something that you have surpressed as a child ... something do to with a bar or either that part of it was a vision for whatever reason.

      I am so glad you were healed and shared your experience.

      Meeting God in a bar sounds most civilised to me. I'm quite envious!

      I've had realistic, recurring dreams but nothing like that. It's usually about a horse, as I've always wanted my own horse. Once I woke up and cried because the dream seemed so real. The good thing about your dream is, it healed you. Accept it for what it is, you are blessed.

      Nell ths is very interesting. I have heard so may similar stories to this so I believe that events like this really happen. I have had dreams that seem so real that when I wake it takes me some time togather my thoughts...evetually thinking,"Was that a dream? Yes,it must have been." There is so much happeig in our world that we just can't explain. I believe that God/angels are watching over us and often appear as though in a dream. Voted up.

      How interesting Nell.

      I do believe things similar to this occur but hesitate to use the word 'God' with it. I prefer a Universal Spirit or something similar.

      I can see why this would help your body to heal. Often when a coma is drug induced, it frees up body to heal itself.

      Although many people might see a similar figure, due to years of visual imagery thrust upon us, I can't figure out why he'd be in a bar.

      Thanks for sharing your story with us.

      Voted up and awesome. This is a wonderful and inspirational story. I do believe you have a special contact and you were transported somewhere beyond this world. I say this because I have had an experience when I was feeling very sick and I went upwards, met my mom who comforted me and made me feel better and yes, the next morning it seemed like I hadn't really been sick at all. Passing this on.

      Wow Nell. What an account this was. I´m so glad you shared it. My Mum dies when I was only 6 but my auntie Marion told me more than once that when my mum was little she was very ill and swore she saw an angel standing in an alcove in the bedroom. I do believe they are there for us when we really need them, and something turned the tide for you that night.

      What a lovely story Nell. We live in a vast and mysterious Universe and I truly believe there is so much more going on than our five physical senses can tell us. Whether this was a spiritual healing or your own higher self or something completely different doesn't really matter in the end, because hat matters is that you got better. Maybe if we all relaxed more, accepted and trusted in the good all around us we would be a healthier bunch of humans

      I love hearing stories like this. Who knows? There's so much out there we don't know. Was it a dream or something more? I love it, though. and I loved fpher's comment, too. I feel hope and inspiration when I hear these kind of stories.

      Wow, Nell, that is really wonderful, and amazing!!

      I think it was an angel?

      Angels come to us in our dreams, I think. Look at the Old Testament.

      God bless, dear. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful experience with everybody.

      I believe it was real, Nell. I think sometimes there truly is divine intervention in times of great need. I am glad you shared this with us.

      I have had similar lucid dreams and all of them had a specific purpose. Some were warnings, preparing me for an emotional shock, some exposed facts and/or stuff I was looking for. We just don't know all there is to know in this world/universe, although nobody can convince us that a dream like this was not real and meaningful, and even misterious and miraculous. Mysterious & Miraculous is a series of anthologies containing stories like this, compiled by some of our mutual friends and published by HubPages' Best Fiction Writer 2014, mckbirdbks. They are now busy with #3. This story of yours should be included. Please, Nell, will you please contact marcoujor.hubpages.com

      I am also sending her a link to this hub.

      Thanks so much everyone for reading, as I said above, i have no idea what really happened, it was just so real, in fact in the dream I remember i kept saying, I am awake, this is real! I suppose you could call it a lucid dream, where you are aware of being you, and being in the dream, compared to normal dreams. It was weird, it was amazing, and well, was it real? Who knows? But I hope so, thanks again everyone!

      What a very cool story about your out of body experience. Illness and being very tired can make us move away from our body. Most people, when they recall an event like you had, they write it off as being a lucid dream. I'm glad that you keep recalling it, so you will always know that: "in my father's house there are many dimensions."

      Nell you tell the best stories and i love this one especially. I can just hear the cynics, " Oh God would never go into a bar. " That's who he spent time with, ' sinners ' I'm like you. I'm skeptic when it comes to the paranormal but who knows? Sharing on twitter.

      Fascinating,Nell! The Bible sometimes depicts God and Jesus as appearing to people with white hair and white clothes. I'm glad that you were healed!

      OMG you brought something back that I haven't thought of in years. When I was like 12 I was floating in my parent's above ground pool. Well I got stuck in the innertube and it flipped over and I could not get out and I was scared. There was this black shadow figure that helped me right myself and I stood up in the pool. I never told anyone this before. I wasn't supposed to be in the pool.

      What a beautiful dream Nell. I have also had vivid dreams that I remember in detail but have never been that ill or near death. I definitely believe in an afterlife and it would seem that you were between here and there during that dream. I enjoyed reading this. Will tweet, G+, pin and share on HP.

      "I just know something special happened that night." That's a real special experience no one can take away. You sound sure that you met God; so you can state it without questioning it. I believe you. Thank you for sharing.

      Hi Paula, I can quite believe that about your cousin! when I was pregnant I was having a hard time sleeping, so I went into the other bedroom on my own. Suddenly I felt my hubbys hand on my shoulder and he said, 'go to sleep its okay, I am here if you want me' i turned to say thanks, but he wasn't there! so I got up and went into the main bedroom, there he was, snoring his head off!

      Wow! I have goose bumps! When I was about 12 years old, I was in a coma as a result of a water moccasin snake bite. I had a vision of an angel standing at the foot of the bed. I don't think I dreamed this, I think I really saw an angel! I woke up soon after seeing the angel, and was fine.

      Voted UP, and shared.

      Wow, Nell. What an amazing experience! Odd that the healing setting for a 15 year old girl was a bar, but who are we to question, right? I have no doubt it was real and not a dream. It makes perfect sense for the soul to leave the body so it can heal. I know for a fact that souls can drift out of the flesh when need be. I've been told that I've done it myself on at least two separate occasions.

      Thanks for sharing this amazing story. This would be a very good fit for Mysterious & Miraculous Book III. The deadline for entries is August 31st. If you're interested, email me and I'll put you in touch with the editors.
