So I was reading the TEC thread (scary stuff) and it reminded me of a religious experience I had when I was a teenager.
When I was probably 13, my family experienced a series of tragedies that included the deaths of multiple relatives, most of them very young, some of them my friends. My parents were worried about my mental state and so my dad took me to a church where a bunch of church men layed hands on me and prayed in the middle of an empty sanctuary. Just me, like six guys and a bunch of prayer and physical contact. I remember lots of tears and feeling unusual heat coming from their hands on my head and shoulders but not much else. I don't think it ever came up again after that day.
So, touch of God or psychosomatic pressure?
Everything makes more sense now that I've stopped believing.
