I'm not sure if this is the strangest thing that's happened - but it was strange!
About 10 years ago I was quite active in a Spiritualist Church, sitting in open and closed circles.
Once, I received some "crystal healing" from someone who had come to visit the church. This took place in the room which the mediums used to
"prepare" for their "demonstrations".
I was sat on a chair and had various crystals either placed under the chair and/ or moved around me whilst I sat there with my eyes closed. There were
only two of us - me, and the healer - in the room at the time incidentally. There was no "incantations" being said, as far as I can recall.
The strange thing was that during the healing, I felt my right arm being stroked very gently (I was wearing a short sleeved shirt as it was very mild
weather around July). It was so "vivid" a feeling that I could feel the hairs on my arm being "brushed", as the stroking was continuous, up and
down, so that the "up" and "down" strokes went against the way my hair was "lying" on my arm.
This wasn't at all scary in fact: rather it was very comforting and reassuring.
No, there was no ventiallation fan blowing in the room, no, it *wasn't* the healer doing it, Yes, it *did* seem to be a "physical" effect (rather
than an emotional one).
As I say, perhaps not "strange" - but it stays with me even now...
