That's a great story. Nice how it's reminding us of our own.


You know, I believe that just as there are negative forces trying to shift the polarity of human consciousness, there are an equal number of positive ones out there working in the opposite direction. I think that sometimes those forces create similar scenarios among us in order to bring us together...by sharing similar experiences, we activate a certain frequency or channel of energy. We connect in a way that otherwise, we might not be inclined to.

I don't know if I'm articulating that very well, but I have so many thoughts and feelings about this that I find it difficult to put into words. In an awesome kind of way.

Thank you for sharing that lovely story. I totally believe you. I have helped many homeless and am always surprised at how different each encounter was-people so different than I have ever met in my everyday life. It does feel like they do exist for a purpose-something so unexplainable. I believe each connection changes me in some way that I can actually feel at the time and it lingers with me without my even being aware of it.


Thank you, I'm happy to share it. I love the way the OP started it off with that awesome story and prompted us to share ours. I think that is the intention behind this type of interaction with benevolent beings...whatever they may be.

I always help people if I have the means to. I have literally given a homeless person the shirt off my back, more than once. All the homeless folks in this neighborhood know they are welcome to help themselves to my water hose any time, day or night. If I can make someone's life easier, I will. I've received a lot of criticism for this, and that has only served to strengthen my resolve.

People think that children have to be taught to share, but that is absolutely untrue. Children don't have a built in sense of possessiveness over material objects...they are taught that things either belong to them or do not. We are conditioned to hold tightly to our possessions through a false perception of scarcity, and that results in a society where one family can have an obscene amount of excess while the family next door on the same street are barely able to put the cheapest of food on the table.

I know I can't save everyone, and I really think people should learn how to pick themselves up and be their own hero. But how can they do that when they have nothing to eat or access to clean running water or a place to rest their head at night?

No one ever becomes poor by giving. Anne Frank said that...and she had every reason to be negative, yet she chose to remain positive instead. Faced with the fear of death every day, she worried about the plight of people who, incredibly, had it even worse than she did. Whatever positive force that lived in her is the same force that touches us through encounters like these.

It lingers because our souls recognize it as a truth that we've been conditioned to forget. It wakes up something at a soul level that transcends all this chaos and imbalance we know as reality. And when we come together like this, each of us are both the flame and the mirror that reflects its light.

I think it's entirely possible that this very conversation was designed to happen, and the OP was the catalyst for it. I am not a believer in coincidence. Similarities prompted us to recall these encounters and sparked a pretty awesome discussion. I don't believe that is accidental.

Who ever created us, "God/Supreme Being/Prime Energy Source/Prime Creator" gave us all "free will" to believe or dis-believe. We can easily find hypocrisy in many of our man-made religions. "Faith" is just that, it simply not rooted in fact. If there was a specific religion or ideology handed down by God, the facts of his/her existence or a particular religious belief wouldn't be disputed, period! We would all know, unequivocally our life's purpose, who created us, and how we should behave. The only road map we were all given, is our personal emotional feelings and how we perceive "good and evil." Depending upon which road we take in life, may very well be our true "religion" the creator wants us to follow.

Yes, me too.


It could have been a supernatural (angel) encounter. The purpose? To get you to do exactly what you are doing--looking for answers, reaching out spiritually. Does that sound right to you?

This thread went in some shockingly convoluted positive ways!


The very first thing I thought of regarding your experience was it's fall and schools in so had it been me I'd of assumed it's a psychology student working on a paper who is doing a random sampling.

Everyone else's theories are of course, much more meaningful.

The OP experienced it as something more "interesting" then simply a student doing a survey though. If the OP had presented it as that sort of experience, I'm sure the answers would have been much different.

It seems the OP was a little weirded out by the whole thing because, among other things, the person who gave him the survey seemed to have simply disappeared rather than moving on to her next survey, and the OP feels like this experience meant more than just a bunch of mundane questions.

Regardless of what we want to believe about our own brand of reality, whether it is typical of the herd or our own private creation of it, there are mysterious forces that operate totally independent of us and seem to have a capability over us if they would so choose to use it.

Some people have labelled those intrusions into our personal lives as the work of god, angels, aliens and a generalized mass consciousness. Skeptics like to dismiss it all as delusional. Some of us have our own proof that such events are not figments of our inner minds. The factor that is strongly evident is that the experience frequently has touched our core and nothing will ever quite be the same thereafter. The event may be shuttled away, but rarely totally forgotten and even then it is not totally gone from our minds. Another factor is that there never is any tangible proof of the experience and that always leave a way for us to also question the whole experience. To my way of thinking, that mission, from that entities perspective, was a total success in providing no answers but forever raises question in the mind of the recipient.

Be thankful for the experience.

I have been ruminating lately on some mysterious events in my life over the years. Your post beautifully sums up, for me, what these experiences that bend our notions of reality are all about. Thank you.

I met a strange lady, she made me nervous. She took me in and made me breakfast.
She said did you come from the land down under?

Something very bizarre happened to me today involving a strange woman I met. It has left me very confused and slightly paranoid. I should first mention that, although I was raised in a Christian family, I am non-religious; but I do believe in a higher power.

I had the day off today and on my days off I like to go to a local park for leisurely strolls. I was on my walk and taking in the beautiful view of the changing leaves when I was approached by a woman, about mid 30's or so, who asked if I would be interested in taking a "Spirituality Survey". I normally decline offers like this but was feeling generous today so I accepted.

She asked me a few basic, non-descript questions at first but it was her last three questions that really stuck out to me. The final three were, in order:

-What do you know about God?
-What do you know about Jesus?
-On a scale of one to ten, how interested are you in meeting God?

The last one in particular caught me off-guard but I still answered them. After the last question she thanked me, said goodbye, turned in the opposite direction of me and walked away. I started my walk again, still pondering what just happened, but I quickly decided I had some questions for her. I turned around to call for her but she was nowhere to be found. I yelled out "Excuse me!", "Miss!?", and "Hello?!" But didn't get a response. It hadn't been more than 15-seconds since we parted ways and it was like she vanished without a trace.

Keep in mind this was a fairly wide open section of the park. The only way she could have disappeared from my field of view in such a short period of time would be if she had literally started sprinting after she turned away from me, and even then she'd have to be fast as hell to pull it off.. I won't rule that out but the fact that she more-or-less disappeared really freaked me out and had me thinking about her "survey" even more.

Specifically the last question. Why would her survey end with asking how badly I wanted to meet God? Does this lady know something I don't? And I about to meet God? Am I going to die soon? Who was this woman and what are her motives? Was she sent by God? Was she God?

Anyway, I just wanted to share my story and get it off my chest.


Are you LARPing or why did you not include a description of the woman? Mid 30s doesn't help, what ethnicity how tanned colour hair length, how tall is she, what's her build. How did she talk? With an accent? Your lack of description makes me think you made it up.

Maybe she looked pretty and you could not resist. If you answered the last question that you want badly...she might just end your life right there.
