Hi I have had spiritual experiences since I was a young girl. I am hoping that others can share their experiences during a cancer journey.
Here's mine: The part when I had signs started in January. Mom was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer in June 2009. In January 2011 I found out it spread to her brain. I was devastated. On my birthday, January 26 we were on our way back from a day trip. My husband and son were asleep. It was a rainy day but it cleared up on the drive home. As it cleared, simpsons (from the TV show) clouds appeared. They are my absolute favorite clouds. It felt like a sign that it was going to be okay. In the following week on my drive home I pulled into my drive and behind my house were dolphin clouds that soon turned into seahorse clouds. My mom loved the ocean more than anything and would spend the vacation just staring at the sea. It felt like I was being told mom will find her peace. Then a few weeks ago, before we were told mom's prognosis is 2-8weeks I dreamt that she was going to die on a friday and it'll be stormy. She died last friday and it was stormy up until she died then it became a beautiful blue-sky day. I had left the hospital during her last hours to take care of the dog for my dad and pick up my brother. As soon as we arrived to the hospital and turned the car off we both turned our heads to see who had knocked on the car window - no one was there. It was two very distinct knocks. We arrived in mom's room with no less than 5 minutes before she took her last breath. I like to think it was my mom knocking to say "Hey babies! I'm walking!" She wasn't able to walk months before her death and even before cancer she battled walking because of RA. Those things turned on a light in my heart I hadn't felt in years. In a way, it made her end of life journey easier for me to accept.
Please share stories like this you've experienced.
