Get Off the Mountain RIGHT NOW! Advice from a Spirit?
This story might be a little freaky for some folks but it's a real story that happened to me and a friend. A couple of years back a friend of mine that lives in Flagstaff suggested we meet in Sedona for a hike which was about the same distance/time for both of us to travel. I met her at the Coffee Pot Cafe (a local favorite hangout for breakfast) and we made a plan to hike up to what we call Hole in the Rock.
Being a lovely summer day in Sedona, the sky was as bright a blue as I've seen with fuffy white clouds, making the red rocks of Sedona stand out even more. Stunning Views of Sedona!! The trail is not a long a strenuous trail but rather a pleasant little day hike trail. We both had only our day-packs with some water and few snacks and a deck of 'Indian Medicine Cards". The trail was supposedly a spiritual place for Indians so we figured it would be pleasant and serene.
We wound our way up the hill through a series of caves and arrived at the top which is always a 'AH HA' moment from every mountain top in Sedona. We were enjoying a nice conversation while we were playing with the Indian Medicine cards. The cards are kind of cool, you can get a 'feel' for answers to situations or dilemas or just learn more about yourself.
I was doing my friends cards when all of a sudden I had this VERY STRONG URGE to jump off the mountain. It felt very weird but I didn't mention it to my friend- thinking what the heck is that? (no I'm not nuts!) We continued on with the reading and it happened again - with an even a stronger PUSHING from behind feeling. Now this was getting a even weirder but I still stayed quiet- was I imaging this???
Then a moment or two later I FELT a VERY POWERFUL PUSH FROM BEHIND. I looked at my friend and said "We need to Get off the Mountain NOW! RIGHT NOW!. She took one look at my shocked face and we quickly picked up our stuff and headed down faster than you could imagine.
Within a minute we tucked into a cave and all of a sudden - out of nowhere - it started to thunder and lighting like crazy.
WE WERE STUNNED! Could it be that somebody (on the spirit side) was trying to warn us and save our live.
It seemed more than very strange at the time but I'm certain that had we NOT gotten off the mountain one or both of us could have been killed or hurt very badly from the lighting.
Needless to say whatever or whoever it was that caused us to run for our lifes, we were very grateful to be safe in the cave. We were stuck in that cave for about 2 hours or so while the thunder, lightning and rain pounding down all around us. It was quite scary and we were hoping and praying it wouldn't last past dark. Luckily we had a few snacks and a warm shirt - plus of course the Indian Medicine Cards to while away the time in our safe haven. It was one of the most memorable hikes either one of us had ever done in our life up to that point - and there hasn't been another even remotely as crazy - to this very day. And I hope it doesn't happen again! But if it does I hope something or someone will be watching over us and keeping us safe.
Nothing like a quiet little hike in Arizona!
