I have felt warmth and positive, loving energy around me throughout my life (like I'm being hugged). I have also smelled the aroma of flowers at various times when there were no flowers anywhere around me. The first time I actually "felt" the presence of angels was over 20 years ago. I was in a very serious car accident. I was not wearing a seat belt because, at that time, people didn't wear their seat belts like today.
It was a rainy morning and I was running late for work, so I was driving a little too fast for the conditions. The stoplight turned yellow and, since I had recently received a warning ticket for running a yellow light, I decided to stop. As I slammed on my breaks, the car hydroplaned and another car sideswiped my car twice. My car went spinning across two lanes of traffic, across a set of railroad tracks, and then jumped a median where another car hit me before I was finally able to reach a complete stop.
When the car had first started spinning out of control, I had felt a set of hands holding me back against my seat like a seat belt. The force of the impact should have bounced me around and I should have hit my head on the window or been thrown through the dashboard. My car was totaled beyond repair, yet I walked away intact, without any bumps or bruises. I later learned that there was normally a train on the tracks that my car flew over. The train was always on time, but that morning (thanks to God and the angels) that train had been delayed!
