The Being Of White Light
I was sleeping one night and I felt someone's hand stroking the side of my face lovingly. At first I thought it was my husband, but when I opened my eyes there it was- a being of bright radiant light.
It was not blinding to see, but a silhouette of soft white light that looked almost like a grid pattern. It did not have a face, but I could tell it was a loving being and sort of cocked it's head to the side when I opened my eyes.
I, of course, was scared and immediately threw the covers over my head! My husband sleeping aside me had no idea what was going on and I told him the next day. I can assure you I was not dreaming nor asleep when it happened because it was the thing that woke me up from sleep.
Why it was there I do not know, probably to protect me from something or guide me. Why it woke me up I do not know. But I know it had good intentions. Maybe it was an angel or perhaps a guide. It crossed my mind that it could have been my father communicating to me from beyond, because he had passed away from throat cancer a few years back and I always feel him with me.
I know we are truly never alone and am comforted by that fact. I just need to be more in tune with myself and trust my feelings more with things. I tend to get overwhelmed and am working on changing that.
Bless you and yours, Rachel
