I had a similar experience about a year ago. I am not religious whatsoever, though was raised Catholic. Not atheistic but agnostic maybe. I do not
think that has any bearing on this experience. I was very depressed about many things (husband not getting along, teenage son not doing well and with
a chronic illness). I stayed up very late and was out in the garage just sobbing. I swear to you, suddenly time stopped. I mean that seriously. For
maybe all of 30 seconds. But it stopped. Surreal. Seemed longer. I am a degreed Computer Scientist, and wanna be Physicist. It was raining, the
rain stopped. And no, no one spoke to me or anything like that. But things became "clear". I can't explain now. The exact memory escapes me.
But the peace remains. I've told many friends. I think they just humor me. But to me it was completely real. I frankly don't give a flip if
anyone understands, I can't blame them. It was the most life changing moment of my life and I still can't explain why.
