I have been journaling various experiences of my life for awhile now and over time I will be sharing many of these with you. The most recent happened last night before going to sleep and while I don’t entirely understand its meaning, I do know it was real and was meant for me to know.
Last night I had just gotten into bed and was lying there contemplating my day and the future. My day had been fraught with feelings of insecurity, general unworthiness and anxiety. I don’t really know what caused these feelings but I am slowly beginning to understand how the feelings and issues of others around me have an affect on me too. I always knew that I had a “knowing” about others and their state, but it just recently dawned on me that these people could affect how I feel. The weird part is that these feelings seem to be my own, but now I’m not so sure.
Anyway, I was lying in bed on my left side when I noticed a presence above and behind me. I could hear some sound, but couldn’t quite hear or understand it. It only happened once and lasted for maybe 1-2 seconds, then I had a feeling of being covered. It was like a large heavy blanket was thrown over me and the bed, and I could hear the air rushing out all around me and then it continued through me. This lasted for probably 15 – 20 seconds. It was so very comforting. I decided to lay there and just accept this feeling and I thanked the presence for that gift.
Upon waking this morning, my extreme anxieties of the previous day were gone. While I do remember them, their hold on me is released.
Like I said, I don’t know what it all means for sure; but I do know that I was being visited and comforted for a reason. Thank you for helping me.

It is nice to know that others have those feelings, especially today – as I've had similar ones today…. I would like your blanket to cover me this evening.
On one topic. All your feelings are YOUR feelings brought on by events – they a…re reactions to something you manifested in order to learn on the soul/Self level – own them, and they will integrate and you will wake up again… better. ~ Susan Herren
Great advice, I do appreciate that. Learning that I control my reactions to an action is hard to believe sometime. It's so much easier to believe that I am a victim.
