OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE

 OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE

  —  Mary A LaClair

780 words.

It was 11:00 at night and the nurses were changing shifts in labor and delivery. They had been attentive to me in labor for hours, but suddenly I had been left alone.  I hear them together outside in the hall:  “Come on, ‘ya gotta tell me, how was your date tonight? What’s he like? Where’d you go, what’d you do? Did you like him, would you go out with him again?”

As a mother about to deliver, I should not be alone in the room:  “Oh, here’s another contraction….oooooww,

WHERE IS that nurse nursenow??!!

They are NOT updating each other on conditions of patients and states of delivery as they should be at shift change. They are updating on date night instead!! This baby may drop on the floor. They are needed in HERE! I have to go out in the hall to chastise all of them; however I am unable to move and have lost any bell button.

Suddenly I’m in the air looking down and see a woman twisting in pain on a bed.  “Oh, my, that looks like me in that bed, but I don’t feel the pain up here in the air. I’m going into the hall and reprimand those nurses for their lack of attention to their work and to their patients.  Ok, goody, I get to go through a wall!”

“You can’t, you don’t have your glorified body yet, you must go through the doorway.”

I go through the doorway, floating high in the air, hovering over and behind the group of nurses socializing at their station in the hall.

Scolding them I say: “What are you doing out here? There is a woman about to deliver in that room right there. You shouldn’t be talking about date night, the last shift should be updating the new shift about the current conditions of each patient.”

One nurse looks behind her and exclaims: “Hey, where did that voice come from?” They turn, see nothing and see no one.

Several nurses run into the room, and bells, whistles and alarms go off, everyone comes running.

Each starts scolding the other, followed by  “Get the doctor, quick!”  …“Hold it” one snaps to me. At that moment, my spirit ZAPPS back into my body. I feel as if my spirit has suddenly had a lead weight attached to it. The doctor who answers the alarm says, “Don’t you EVER tell one of my patients to ‘hold’ it, EVER again!  Do you hear me! Where were you, why wasn’t someone on watch here?”

“It was change of shifts.”

“That is NO excuse, you cover for each other until the next arrives! And do NOT leave these patients alone. DO you hear me?!?”

This child has grown up and become a successful professional.  We are very grateful for that.

 But let’s not miss other spiritual lessons here:

CONCLUSIONS:

The spirit is separate from the body. The spirit is able to communicate to the natural world without being seen. We, however, are not to communicate with spirits. We should use discernment when listening to unknown voices, not all voices are good ones.

There is more to this world than meets the eye.

We ARE spirit, we live in a body, and we have a soul. It was my soul, I believe, which directed my spirit to correct and exhort the young nurses.

We WILL receive a glorified body …someday.

In extremely painful situations God is able to separate spirit from pain. Why doesn’t He do this all the time? I don’t know.

Do you have a loved one killed in an accident? Picture God taking the spirit home before the pain hits. There have been numerous stories where those who’ve survived trauma have told of looking down on their own bodies. I’m saying, “It IS possible…” because it happened to me.

As Jesus is, so shall we be. Jesus’ Spirit is separated from His body, as ours will be. His Holy Spirit is in the world today. He sees all, knows all. His Spirit is real. Just as our spirit is real. Our spirit goes on living even after our bodies die. (absent from the body, present with the Lord.) The Lord was present: It was He who told me that I couldn’t go through the wall…

The spirit is separate from the body. The spirit is able to communicate to the natural world without being seen. We, however, are not to communicate with spirits. We should use discernment when listening to unknown voices, not all voices are good ones.

There is more to this world than meets the eye.

There is more to this world, and more to life and death, than meets the eye.

 “What a friend we have in Jesus!”   He is alive and in the world today. Start talking to Him as friend. He answers to the Name of Jesus; He also answers to the title “LORD”.
