I had a strange experience Valentine’s night. I don’t know whether I was half asleep or dreaming. I felt that I was encased in a metal armor like in medieval times even though I couldn’t see it. I remember looking down at my body, but it looked the same as it always does with nothing more on it than my pajamas as I was in bed. Then, as if spiritual hands were laid upon me, the metal plates unbuttoned themselves from my shoulders one at a time. I felt myself get lighter inside as the weights that were plaguing me were lifted. I felt each one as it was unbuttoned and lifted away, often revealing another underneath that I wasn’t even aware of in the first place. Layers were unbuttoned from my shoulders down to my toes. In my mind’s eye, I could see the metal vestments, but in reality they were invisible. When they were all finally removed, I was left with my physical body as I see it daily in the mirror, but without the weight.
All at once, I felt my spirit lift from my body and stand by the bed, even though I was still in bed. In my mind’s eye, I saw her, dressed in a pale blue shift. I could not see her face, but only saw her figure which was almost ethereal. I remember feeling peaceful as if I was watching something so special from afar and I didn’t want to break the spell of what was happening so I simply flowed with the experience.
Suddenly, I felt something start to poke my shoulder blades. It didn’t hurt exactly, but it did feel like my shoulder blades were trying to burst open and sprout wings. Yes, angel wings! I looked at the figure by my bed and I watched as she grew beautiful wings from her back. It was so ethereal that my words fail to tell you how utterly blissful it was for me to watch. But I did watch and I did feel the wings simultaneously sprout from her back and mine as well.
I remember questioning the experience ~ could we both be growing wings at the same time? What does this mean? Am I dreaming? And as those words began to form in my head, immediately I woke up and opened my eyes to see what was going on. But there was nothing there. No angelic being by my bed even though I was almost sure I’d see her as the dream was so fresh in my memory and so realistic. Was it a daydream? A dream? A gift from Spirit/God/Universe/Inner Spirit? Was I truly visited by an angel?
Has this ever happened to you? It feels so real to me. I’ve never had such an experience before ~ but if you have, please share!
