The Church in the Woods


This took place in South Carolina, between Anderson and Greenville. It was in the middle of the 1970's. My first husband was from SC. So when ever he got his vacation, from General Motors every summer, we went for two weeks to Sc. I looked forward to this time each year. As SC is such a beautiful state, that I loved to go to and tour.

While we are driving down I-75 some place in TN I tell my husband that "Something is going to happen this time, with our visit we won't forget". He said "What?". I said it again. He asked me what it would be? I told him "I don't know, but something". The closer I got to SC that year the more I felt something would happen we would not forget. We were in the Mountains of the Smokies and I said again to my husband. "Something is going to happen, I feel it won't be good". Now my husband tells me not to be a jinx and be quiet. (I think I was freaking him out).

We are in the Mountains, I heard a rumble noise and the road is vibrating. I am frighten. My husband says to me "What is that?" I said an "Earthquake". He tells me it's not that. I look up the Mountain see something coming down it, I can't see what it is. "Step on the gas I said fast". We went past the area that we heard the noise at, and I turned around and a big rock, or boulder came smashing to the ground. I almost thought we would go off the side of, the Mountain when it hit the ground. We did not look back again, fearing more may come down. We went as fast as we could, to get out of that area.

My husband looks at me. "How did you know that was going to happen?". I said what? He says it again. I told him "I didn't know that was going to happen". He tells me I said something that we would remember. I told him "It was not that I felt". So he tells me to be quiet. (Freaking him out again, I think).

We made it to Sc and go to his Moms house. We stay and recuperate for a few days. His Mom tells us we just missed some bad weather that went through that area. I said good. After a few days we go sight seeing. In a bi-lo store I hear someone talking about a Church in the woods. So I asked them where it was, they told me the directions, and then warned me not to go there. I asked why? They just told me to stay away. Well if they told me to stay away I am thinking, why did they tell me how to get there?

We finally find the little road to the woods, to where this Church is suppose to be at. We have to get out and hike through the woods, can't see it from the road. I lean up against a tree to take my shoe off, thought I had a rock in it. My husband tells me to move slowly off the tree, don't make a sound he said. I did as he said, when I was a bit away from the tree I ask why? He tells me I had my hand close to a black widow spider.

Finally we see the Church. I said "Hey there is the Church do you see it honey?" First of all he said no. Then we walked a bit more and he said he sees some of the Church. Where is the rest of the Church he ask me? I look at him. What you mean? It's all there, let's go to it. He stands back. I said then I will. I started to walk towards that Church, and I can hear screaming and shouting. I am thinking someone is holding some kind of worship in there. My hubby tells me he hears the shouting too. His hair on his arms are standing up he tells me.

I just said it's cooler in the woods then out of them. I went to the Church door. The door was hanging on hinges, when I looked into the door, I see where the roof was not on the Church and the floor is gone, only rafters. Some of the walls where there. I hear people screaming for help, I see people hanging onto the rafters, just dangling there. My heart is in over drive. Yet I couldn't move. I can hear my husband saying "Lets get out of here". I can hear him moving away from me. I can't move. I can see many people. Yet it's in the woods, it's darker in the woods how can this be. My mind is spinning with so many thoughts. It was like the lights were on in the Church, or a bright light coming from some place.

Finally I am able to move backwards, from the Church. My heart still racing and so were my feet. I stepped into a hole and fell down. I got up and ran for all I could. I called my husband, in which I can't see no more and I am lost in the woods. I can't think where I was, what were the marks we used to find our way, out of the woods. My legs were itching and on fire they felt like. I didn't know why but thought it was all the branches and stuff scrapping on my legs.

I don't really know how I found my way out of the woods I was never in before. I got out, my husband is in the car, with the doors locked. I am banging on the doors, he let's me in. We drove to his Mom's house, she told me I needed a doctor. I guess I was in shock. I had stepped into a mound of fire ants when I was running.

For a few days I just don't remember what happen. We told his Mom about the Church. She said she would never go into the woods where that Church was, too many people died in that Church. She said from a tornado that came through, tore the roof off, and the floor went down and people were hanging on the rafters and calling for help. I said "I seen that". She told me I couldn't, as it happen a few days before we arrived to her house. She told me that the Church was full of people, at a service when the tornado came through.

I never been back to that Church. It may have fallen to the ground by now. I always wanted to check it out again. But have not been to SC, now for about ten years.

After that I wondered on the way home, was I seeing the dead people or the ones that were alive, waiting to be taken out of there. I was told by my Mom in law some were saved many were not.

Last month only this year, I had a horrific nightmare of an earthquake. I had seen the face of the earth break down into two planes. I also saw many people fell into the pit made by the earthquake. It is only last night my co worker said to me that he had watched the news television program that there will be an earthquake coming having an intensity of seven predicted by the psychics. I too predicted this kind of calamity by means of a vivid/lucid dream but I do not know when it will going to happen. I need help please by offering prayers to all living and the poor souls that might become victims of this kind of event. Focus on philippines help me save many souls. Thank you and good day to you! 😊 😉 ❤

[at] Bella4511 thanks for making a comment to my story. I still think of that Church from time to time, wondering why I was given the "gift" to see what happen to those people. Once again thanks for your comment.

I think that's the worst situation you were in. You had to see how they died. = (

pinkbabe63... Well about your latest experience... I would remember this dream and if I were you I would be very carefull in a few years if your in Sussex with a friend at or near a bar at night. It could well be a little vision of possibility from the future that if you are aware of that you could change !

[at] pinkbabe63, I go on with my life as I am certain anyone else with Psychic Albilities do as well. I meditate it helps me, but it may not help others. I have had this "Gift" I believe nearly all my life. I didn't do anything special to achive it, it was just there. Your still quite young and like others told you, just kind of go with the flow of things, could be what you should do. I am no expert on this "gift" I have.
Shadow people seem to be in your life. Do you have any gut feelings when you see them who they might be? As many people state they feel it was like this or that person. Not all shadow people are bad. But because they supprise you out of no where, maybe times we think they may be a bad person but that don't mean they are.
Maybe someone else can comment on this for you.
I do know one thing when your frighten and have fear of the unknown it kind of slips away. But if you face your fear you can learn more about your psychic abilities.
You could always look up "Psychic ALbilities" in the google and perhaps it can answere some questions for you.

[at] Edmund, since this story happy to me in the 1970's. My psychic albilities have came through for me many times. Not long ago I communicated with a friend of mine that passed to the other side be two years next month. I feel his present in here many times. First his spirt was stuck in a room, now he just roams about here. I don't feel danger so his spirit just kind of hangs out here I guess.
Seeing the tragic I seen I was suppose to seen. Th spirits of those people needed perhaps someone to know they were there. I prayed for the ones I seen after, I got home. So I felt at peace after that about them. Trying to explain how one can get "Psychic Albilities" is something I just can't seem to do. As I have had this for as long as I can remember.
Thanks for your comment to this story.

[at] GlendaSc thanks for your comment to this story. Bakc in the 1970's I really didn't know what was wrong with me. Didn't know that what I can sense or see was a psychic albility so yes it did frighten me. Wasn't until much older did I learn I have this "Speical Gift".
Now that I went throught some other stuff with my "gift", if something like that happen I would probably looked more into why it happen and such. Anyways thanks for your comment.

Can I send you this long comment so yu can help me as you are good at replying?
Hi I'm 12 years old and I'm psychic, well my psychic abilities are not as powerful as some people but they are getting stronger. When I found out that I was psychic, I didn't know what to think or feel. I have had dreams that come true, hearing voices, constant dejavu and seeing shadows out the corner of my eye which you can read in my other story. I have thought about doing exercises to help my psychic abilites like meditation but then a person told me to just let it flow and that my psychic abilities will get stronger as I grow older. Which is what I'm doing now but what I want to ask is how are you meant to be psychic and lead a normal life? Okay people have done it but its not as easy as it looks and even though my psychic abilities are not that strong I still find it difficult and I'm sure a lot of other people do. Well I don't know if this a real answer to my queston but do you all think that I should just go on with my life and try not to let this control my life?

I will now tell you about my latest psychic experience. A couple of weeks ago I had a dream where I was a white female about 19 years old and I think I came from Sussex or I was in it and I think I had brown hair maybe curly. Anyway I was coming out a night club and it was quite dark it looked about 2am and I was with this other girl I think she was my friend because she hugged me and asked me if I would be okay getting home and then I replied yeh, I'll be fine I'm going to get a cab and then she says okay, I'll see you later bye. Then she gets into a car which might be green or yellow it was quite hard to tell because as I said before it was quite dark. Then I walked around the corner and there was a shadow of a man I called out hello, is anybody there, in a worried voice. Slowly his arm raised up and then he shot me and I woke up. I don't know whether I just made this up or if it's a vision or something? Although I havn't had any dreams to do with this apart from that. So what do you think this means? Please help me!

Flutterofwings... Great story It kind of highlights for me the blessings and shortcomings of being psychic. It certainly helped you on the road to South Carolina. In fact it probably saved your lives. But its not that great of a gift when you get to witness a tragic past event. Anyway great story !

Wow flutter - I got chills. Well, can't really get in touch with your experience. I'm pretty aggressive for a girl maybe. I have been around evil and attack first usually if I feel an attack will happen. I tend to loose my temper a little. At first it scares me some, then I loose my temper then I try to be understanding. I have gone rampaging in... More than once. Even in real life. I do have protective people around me usually. I could say more, but no one would believe/understand it. Sorry. Next time, don't get scared. Know God. Trust yourself and Him...
