I was sleeping in the loft above the chapel at a house of prayer, and had the sense that someone/something had awakened me. I went downstairs to the chapel and the air was “electric.”
I remember lying prostrate in the chapel, just soaking up the sensation of being confronted with the Divine Presence. It felt like every cell in my body was being flooded with the life force….
I was just flooded with the Presence. That is all there was in the whole universe – me and the Presence….
I laid there maybe an hour, and decided to go back to bed, even though the Presence was still there. I laid down and went to sleep without any difficulty, but this memory has remained for three decades.
