Doug Tales 53: Earthbound Spirits, Part Five
Doug Mendenhall, with the help of his sighted friend Kitten, continues talking about the impact of one person’s strong emotions literally holding another person bound to this Earth in I See…Arise! (2016) on pages 23-26:
On a highway heading up north from where we live there was a car accident where a woman had been killed. A short while later we noticed that there was a huge heart made out of colored rocks with a cross at the top of it that had been placed where the accident had occurred. Her name is on the cross.
I had often felt that the woman’s spirit is still on that spot. A few months later I would have my chance to see if my feelings were valid or not.
Further knowledge from our friend Kitten: “Due to a call of the highly spiritual kind, I was in accompaniment with Doug Mendenhall. We were on our way to a place called Eagle Mountain, Utah. We arrived at the junction of two highways in Spanish Fork Canyon. The date is unknown when a woman had died in a car accident at this junction. Her family built a surprisingly large heart-shaped memorial out of colored rocks on the side of the south-facing mountain. A memorial cross was placed just at the top of the ‘heart.’ It appeared to be of a dark type of wood. Her name was on a plaque which was attached to the cross. As a result of these strong emotions of the family, the woman ended up bound to that spot. How do I know this?
“As Doug drove up to and stopped at the stop sign, I could see her standing just slightly uphill of the cross. She was dressed in pastel colors of browns, yellows, and pinks. Her hair was dark. Surprisingly thick, dark, rope-like strands literally bound her to that spot. It was strange seeing the dark strands of an unknown material attached to her. There were multiple lines attached to her wrists that splayed out forming a kind of semicircle around her. Each strand was attached to the ground, a good yard away from her feet. Seeing her, I asked, telepathically, why she stayed there. Surprised, she said it was because she was bound there. In kindness, I gave her information she could leave, if so desired. She did not know how.
“At the stop sign Doug asked if I could see anyone near the stone ‘heart’ on the side of the mountain. I acknowledged I did. He wondered if I could discover anything about the person. I told him I was in conversation with her.
“As Doug carefully guided the car up onto the highway and merged with the traffic, I continued to give information to the trapped woman to look to the light and she may be able to leave. She said she was bound to the area and could not move. There was a distinct sadness in her voice. She said she was tired of being an earthbound. She wanted to leave but honestly could not.
“That’s when I asked her if she had prayed for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for help. She had not thought of that. I prayed to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, if He would go to her. He answered He was already in conversation with her. Praying to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I asked Him to go back to the woman and cut the lines that were holding her to the place her family had bound her. Several seconds later I saw her cruising along with us at the window on my right. With a smile she thanked me for the information. She was flying along horizontally with the car. I simply said, ‘God bless you.’
“Then my guardian popped back in behind me. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, had asked him to cut the strands holding the woman bound to the earth. Rising straight up, the woman disappeared to parts unknown. I gave a sincere prayer of praise, honor, and thanksgiving to God the Father, and a heartfelt thank you to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for hearing the prayer and releasing someone who had sincerely desired to vacate this planet.
“As we continued down the highway toward Spanish Fork, Doug asked if there were any others along the way. (Several others had died in that location.) Looking on both sides of the highway I saw no one else. There were no memorials either. It was understood, the only reason the one was still at the place of transition was because of the very strong emotions of her family. They were unwilling to let her go. As a result she ended up as an earthbound. It was gratifying to know our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, released her from the situation. Blessing, honor, glory, and power be to our Heavenly Father and His Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
Further Understanding: Because of the intense thoughts and emotions of this woman’s family she was literally “bound” to the earth with multiple cords attached to her wrist and going to the ground near her. She could not move from that spot. Denise’s intense thoughts and emotions towards the young man that had transitioned kept him “bound” from moving on in his progression.
How often do our emotions affect others? Are we conscious of doing this to others? Ourselves? Do we really understand the power behind our thoughts? Behind our emotions? For good and evil? Can our own thoughts and emotions keep us “bound” in a state of unconsciousness? Is that one reason that God has told us to “awake and arise?” To throw off those chains that bind us?
