In September 2013, the Hindu God Vishnu formally visited me. Prior to that, in the year 2000, I had seen the Bollywood movie Mission Kashmir at the insistence of my daughter. I had a very limited knowledge of the Indian history, their religious beliefs, culture, foods and so on. This was brand new to me. My next movie was Lagaan in 2001. I was slowly being drawn toward that world through their movies. The process continued and I progressed to learning about their culture, buying their movies, eating at their restaurants…
On and off, I would get a dream of being under their protection when evil pursued me. The very first vision I got was of an elephant being, all decked out. I had no idea who that was, or maybe cryptomnesia was in place. In the morning I searched online and learned that it was Ganesha.
Later on, I got to love their cuisine and many more things which eventually brought me to the moment in time when I dated an Indian man in 2008. Learning Hindi became a must and that process became somewhat easy through the Bollywood songs which I loved. I would be remiss if I failed to say that I fell in love with Shah Rukh Khan, just like the other million women out there. hahaha
I believe the Indian scent became embedded in me because even though I was no longer dating the Indian man, yet other Indian men started asking me out wherever I went. And that too, passed but I continued to learn Hindi and the various Hindu Gods. I was captivated by Vishnu and Lakshmi and up to now it remains the same.
And then, in September 2013 out of the blue, a vision of a blue being appeared right in front of my eyes. It was so vivid that I could not quite believe what I was seeing. I knew it was Vishnu without a doubt and I was superbly moved. From that moment on, the Hindu Gods had entered my field visibly. From dreams to visions to OBEs in India, I was being flooded with their appearances. Vishnu and Lakshmi remained a permanent fixture in my life. I would see them at every turn because they were teaching me and downloading info into me.
Next came Rama and Hanuman whom I saw fighting for me against evil entities trying to harm me. Ganesha told me that I needed to learn more about him and what he offered to mankind. From there, many Vishnu avatars made their presence known to me. To name a few, Matsya, Krishna, Rama, Narasimha, Buddha, Dhanvantari became well-known to me through their appearances. Shesha in visions also showed itself in a large body of water with multiple snake heads peering up at me, scaring the wits out of me. Shiva, Parvati, Kartikeya, Saraswati and some others I did not know, also helped in my progress.
Often, I was taken to ancient times when these gods walked among mankind. I got to see their fights against evil beings. Vishnu’s weapons were also a fixture because he used them to control devastating situations. The Hindu training lasted longer than the other ancient ones.
Was it truly these gods? I can’t say yes? Did they harm me in any way? But what I knew for sure was that the focus was on keeping an open mind and a constant reminder that all is not what it seems.
The world is not just made up of humans. Earth is not the only habitable place. Diversity in beliefs brings diversity in understanding and acceptance of a bigger picture than what we have learned in schools.
