I wasn't quite sure how to word the subject of this posting of a new topic because I didn't want to give away the actual experience in terms of what it truly was but I will explain.
The 'unusual' experience I am referring to came to me in the form of a line of heat. This would take forever to explain so I am going to be brief here, kind of diminishes the intensity of the event, but for brevity's sake I will have to condense.
When I was in isolation, trying to get through my bone marrow transplant I had over 18 years ago, I had congestive heart failure. After I came out of the coma from it I was sitting up in bed (had to sit and sleep that way due to pneumonias) when all of a sudden I experienced this 'heat line' that started at the top of my head and went, horizontally, slowly and deliberately right through my body, stopping and lingering around the two sites of my cancers then moving on til the line of heat went right out the bottom of my feet. During the time it lingered on the final site of the cancer I got this strong thought in my mind that said 'this is a healing and it will never be back'. It wasn't like a booming voice from above, just a gentle explanation in my mind and that gave me the peace to go on and not worry about another bout of 'the beast'. I KNOW, like I have never known anything before, a real true KNOWING that this was a healing. I was never, at any time through this event - scared, curious yes and taken aback - yes, but never afraid and that in itself is miraculous at such a sensation. Now don't start thinking that I am a bible thumper, in fact I seldom even attend church during the holidays but I do believe in a higher power, after this healing more than ever. I was not asking for a healing per se just of course praying my face off to get me through this, for my young family more than anything but I never actually thought of a proper healing as they are described , but gots seem to have gotten one anywho. Afterwards I found out that there were two prayer groups praying for me and I can't help but think that the power of prayer, group prayer especially, was at work at that time for me in spades.
Sooooooooo, the question I am asking is has anyone ever experienced a sensation like my line of heat or any other sensation during their trip with cancer that they have never really been able to explain? It must have happened to others too, just wondering if they realize what it truly was or if they are just afraid to tell anyone about it? Hey I'm not that special someone else must have had something similar, was it you?
