Congresswoman's son brought back by prayer
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Breakthrough to Creativity – Dr Shafica Karagulla
At the first dinner party given expressly for the purpose of discussing [the subject of extraordinary abilities] , I found a delightful group of people. Among those present were two physicians, a member of Congress, an Ambassador and a number of government people. During the course of the evening I actually said very little. However, the fact that I was sympathetic and a serious investigator made everyone feel at ease.
The member of Congress who was present made a great impression on the group. She related in simple and dramatic words a personal experience with HSP. Years before, her son had been at the point of death. There were several friends present in the room praying for his recovery. At a certain point all those present saw a bright light which startled them and at the same time the young man obviously suddenly took a turn for the worse. All present earnestly and insistently renewed the prayers for his recovery.
Although the young man had appeared, without any doubt, to be dying, he suddenly began to show signs of recovery. In a few days he was well along the road to health. His recovery seemed so amazing that his mother cautiously asked whether anything had happened at the moment when he appeared to come back from the very door of death.
Her son said he remembered clearly what had happened and he would tell her if she would make him a promise. She must never again try to recall him if he were at the point of passing out of this life. She made the promise.
Then he told her rather sadly that as he was leaving his body, he passed into a realm of great splendour and ease of movement and clear mental perception.
The prayers of his mother and his friends had pulled him back and it was like coming into a dark prison cell to come back to consciousness in the physical body. He would have preferred to go on and leave his physical body. The son today is a membe rof congress
