Here it goes!
Living at the inlet of a fjord facing the harsh North Sea, can include many weird and scary experiences out in a boat, especially winters time…
This is a rough sailing area where many have shipwrecked during my life. The neighbours had to go and look for, mostly drowned people sadly, many a time when I grew up. My father was in the unfortunately circumstances to find several. It marked his nature in relation to many things, I feel.
So – obviously my friend and I HAD to choose this time, the well known unstable month of December, to indulge the force of nature. To invite the cold, fresh sea breeze in over our increasingly stiff faces – only a toughened fisherman would appreciate…..
My friend had just bought the boat. It was kind of the maiden voyage. He took me with him since I knew the waters around.
Well out, steady sailing towards open sea . Full speed ahead – Yohoo! – here we come! My coffee pumped me nicely up. I knew my now deceased fisherman father would be proud.
It all looked so great, sea gulls still active around, as I can remember them the first time I got the chance to be the helmsman of my fathers fishing boat, only 10 years old. Oh boy I was proud. The salt water, mixed in with tare, the well known smell from motor diesel…combined with the wild scenery……
Hmm, it went so silent! “What’s up”? I asked my friend. “The motor is failing” he cried out – more surprised than a sea gull not getting his fair share from the catch. But that was the least of our concerns.
Drawing our immediate attention to the fact the new boat begun to take in water. A LOT of water, and…it looked like it was in a rush….
What happened next went so fast I have no chance to finish this scribble before it was all over.
As the sea water pouring in (the bottom hatched in the machine room had gone open!!!). We both was instantly paralyzed.
After only one minute the boat was half filled…I scream-scouted after help. But only wast empty sea I could see..
My friend, the increasingly worried and not so proud Captain anymore, was totally frenetic and shout at me me …”What the f.. and he..” and back and forth.
“Eh – How about we put on some life west….” I suggested…
There were NO time!
Now I realized this was darn serious. I send a deep felt request to my Angels —>Arch Angel Michael and all the way above.. up up up, to creator source him/herself ( just to be inclusive he he)
Then instantly sequent of unimaginable events took place!
Within the very next short time it took/would take to fill the boat completely (I estimate around 1 min.) I had now already started my “prayers”, when I instantly spotted, to my eagerly enthusiasm, ANOTHER BOAT out in the distance,, Could it be hope after all?
It was moving fast. Much to fast it seemed… The boat was nearly filled up by now, there could only be second left…..
At this time I stood on the ceiling, screamed and waved as best I could – but it looked they didn’t notice us – was soon past our point one could reasonable expect they had seen us sinking.
It looked like it was all lost, confirmed by the precarious situation. I was ready to jump overboard, not risk to be dragged down with the boat. Hardly think that would make any different, but it’s how one think in these kind of circumstances. The fragile, and in so many ways hard life of mine was clearly in it’s last phase.
OK – if it’s time, it’s time. I will face it as the immortal being I always have believed I am, with no regrets or fear what so ever.
Flashes of chaotic thoughts came in uninvited. Of my mother who always was terrified when ever I went near the sea level or out fishing. Of my elder sister who also was so afraid something would happen to us/me. Of those love ones, – both animals and people…
I went into a negative spin, down down to the bottom. Why didn’t I listen?
But, BUT. The vessel, a Pilot boat by it looks, slowed down, turned around and gave full speed at us. I snapped out from my place of hopelessness, couldn’t believe what I witnessed! – “This is just a miracle A MIRACLE!” I said out load. And that was a understatement!
An A. A. Michael Miracle. Thank you, thank you my Dear Brother!
(I estimate this whole process, from I saw the potential rescue ship to they reach us took at least 5 – 10 min.) The odd bit here is how on earth, I mean sea…hadn’t we already gone down??!!
They started the pumps right away. One of the two crew member jumped over to us and found the open hatch, took whatever he/we could find, pushed it forcefully down in the open hole, in a desperate attempt to rescue the boat itself. This was truly a brave maneuver. A very resourceful action too. It actually slowed down the incoming seawater while the pump system took it out faster. To my friends HUGE relief – thanks to this ingenious person … 30 second more the Pilot Captain said ” It would be to late….”( and…. what’s the chance to be rescued by a pilot boat in the first place?)
The Captain continued “we never take this route at this time, it was just because of needed repair/maintenance’s. I was in my cabin below when it happen”, he added. But for a strange reason got an urge to go up to the bridge, take the binoculars and look in the direction of us. (a decision that probably took less than a couple of second to make. Some second later it would make no difference. It save our lives for sure. Passing us at 25 knots at a considerable range, time flies fast.
Tell me now, – do you think such an event are mere coincident? I don’t.
I doubt we would survive the cold water for any length of time, bad swimmers and all, cold open sea and very strong current. Minutes I guess.
My none spiritual “3 d” friend just nod at me when I ask him ” Well – Do you believe now – huh huh?”
This happen in 2015
The time dilation or whatever came in the back seat here. The drama in the situation made me aware of the time related enigma, when recalling back the event.
This is only one of several similar chill- trilling experiences I’ve had so far during my life. It holds a true validations of the realms we daily seek to communicate with, get a taste of and finely will join, is my core conviction.
This kind of stories I like to share. As it can inspire others to believe, have faith and trust more. Regardless of your current situation and how grim it can look at times. I know!
Please Don’t give up – remember we are all watching, cheering and assisting from all “higher” levels – co operating with all those great beings, we ALL truly are!
I hope you can agree!
Many blessing of magic, wonders and miracles coming your way dear seekers of truth.
