Well, I'm on page 13 now and as soon as I post will go back and continue reading. As old as this thread is I'm quite surprised I didn't see it until
I awoke in 2007, but the cleansing process, that led to the main event started a year before.
We break down into two groups, those with experiences and those without. Frankly, it was sad to read that nuns don't get visions. In fact, I'm
shocked. One would think the type of life they lead is so natural and good that they would be the forerunners of dreams, visions and experiences in
general. There are some things I agree with the Catholic Church on but the Holy Spirit not having an audible voice isn't one. I've heard two
distinct yet different audible voices of the godhead. The first one would be the Holy Spirit, which I call my Comforter. He seems to be quite
similar to your 'Companion/the Voice.' I base my knowledge of who he is by not only the things he has said to me, but by the way his presence is felt
IN me. His audible voice is sort of monotone yet soothing. The two times I've heard his actual voice he was teaching me. There have been a few times
he has showed me things to come without hearing his audible voice or not feeling his presence, yet the narrow description of him of showing us things
to come, also puts him in perfect alignment with what has been taught. Then there is the continual gift of his presence. You call it energy, John
the Baptist referred to it as "fire" and I call it the gift of living water.
When I started physically experiencing the things we are all created to experience I looked high and low for others who were/are having similar things
happen and I'll never forget when I found 1 Saint called Simeon the New Theologian who had already experienced things I was now experiencing and I
said to myself 'I'am not crazy I'm really loved'!
Your experience was in 94 and you are short on answers. There have been many things he has put in my path to grace me with the knowledge I have
today. I think I know why he put all you enthusiastic people in the grey room because he KNEW your curiosity would be to seek answers. It's all part
of the program - ask, seek and knock.
Like you, I use to ask myself 'why me?' What in the world could he see in me that he would entrust me with things that are said to have been hidden
since the foundation of the earth. Trust me it has been the hardest uphill climb. I almost lost my marriage, I lost my daughter, my other child a
boy is in Federal Prison, I lost my sister almost a year ago and on top of all that got audited. The cleansing process culminated in an ecstasy that
literally knocked me off my feet, face down for about 30 minutes and there is nothing and I do mean nothing that can ever compare to the love he
bestowed on me.
Now I seek his face and yearn to be with him. I love my husband dearly but Jesus is my everything.
I've never been in the grey room but I've seen and done other things. It must be part of your experience that builds to something more. I've spent
my life connecting the dots and I am learning he likes that in a personality.
I find it interesting the mother was a part of this experience. I experienced something with my mom once but she has no recollection of it. Her
mother was there also and had no recollection of it. My grandmother, my mother, myself and my deceased daughter were all the second child born and
all were girls. I also had the monkey - my mom bought him for me.
