The spirit world was already active from the beginning. Shortly after entering the main room, I was aware that True Father was with us. Appearing at the front of the room on the right, he wore dark trousers and a short-sleeved white shirt with open collar. He appeared to be giving guidance and direction to the spirit world.
There was a strong angelic presence and spiritual activity apparent - busy but calm. A large Sun appeared during Tim Miller, the European Vice President’s Lecture and later I could see Heung Jin Nim wearing a white suite standing the middle of the room. He wore a turquoise shirt and white tie. He seemed very tall and stood feet apart facing the lecture.
Later in the afternoon, I noticed how beautiful the atmosphere in the annex had become with many large lights (stars) filling the room. Gradually this also occurred in the main room. Billions of bright lights started to appear creating an absolutely beautiful atmosphere and heavenly scent. There was a gentle breeze.
At the start of the Holy Song Session, there appeared row upon row of Absolute Good Spirits, dressed in white Holy Robes, standing behind each member so that each member had behind a line of Absolute Good Spirits ready to assist. As the session started I saw a spiritual being enter my hands. What I noticed most during this time was that the more we clapped the more energised the spirits became. For example, towards the end of this Holy Song Session some of us were becoming tired. Then I noticed several Absolute Good Spirits were struggling to remove an evil spirit from a member’s body. They were really working hard, pulling together much like trying to remove an obstinate plant root or stubborn tooth. It was taking enormous effort on the part of these spirits. We were sweating, but so were they!
I saw a kind of corridor down the middle of the main room. There was a lot of movement by the spirits and angels moving very fast along it. Spirits in white Holy Robes stood either side.
I also saw an area where many spirits were waiting. I could only see their heads, but could tell that they were tightly packed together. They appeared neither happy or sad –without any expression – and lifeless.
The Holy Burning Ceremony was another glorious day. Almost from the beginning of the day, there appeared a wall of fire at the front and in the centre of the room. This was about 1.5 metre high and approx. 2.5 long
Most significant during this time was the appearance of many angels in the room above us. Each angel held one of our confession papers. The atmosphere was truly beautiful and filled with so much love. During this time there appeared a single flame above the head each member. While the officiators begun to burn the papers at the front, several other angels worked to gather up all these flames. The confession papers burnt spiritually with a blue flame and smoke. I saw a gold beam of light from heaven about 2 inches wide descend into the bowl. Heung Jin Nim and one other member of the True Family appeared on stage. A gold star appeared above each member’s heads where the flame had been.
As we welcomed Heung Jin Nim, Dae Mo Nim and True Children, Heung Jin Nim greeted us with a bow, other members of the True Family waved and Dae Mo Nim smiled. Heung Jin Nim seemed very excited and very happy. I was moved at his unchanging, humble and serving spirit. He was filled with much joy and light. At this time I could see Dae Mo Nim’s spirit body working within Hoon Mo Nim. A silver cord of light seemed to come from heaven directly to Dae Mo Nim. Surrounding her head and radiating outwards were strong beams of yellow light.
Observing Dae Mo Nim spiritually, I was able to see how closely connected Dae Mo Nim is to God, True Parents and to the Providence of Restoration. I could see her spirit and nature clearly. She is so deeply connected to True Parents and offering herself 100%. There appeared to be no difference no gap between Dae Mo Nim and True Parents. I also became aware of how little a sense of self or ego exists in Dae Mo Nim. I was struck by how selflessly Dae Mo Nim lives, offering herself so completely to God. Both Heung Jin Nim and Dae Mo Nim live fully practising the principle of living for the sake of others.
At the end of the whole event Dr. Yeong-cheol Song, Regional President of Europe Region 1, asked us to join in expressing our heartfelt gratitude to Heung Jin Nim and Dae Mo Nim. Heung Jin Nim appeared beside Dae Mo Nim, with tears in his eyes.
Also the impacts on my family life and personal life of faith have been very, very real. What we received through this workshop is an incredible Grace from God and True Parents.
Finally as we closed the workshop, True Father joined us raising his arms in 3 cheers of Eok-manse.
