In late January I underwent surgery to have my gallbladder removed. I've been told when one goes under the gas or needle, they wake up as if they had a short nap.
Anyway, I didn't wake up fast. I sat in the darkness. It's akin to being in a windowless room with no lights but this time I was just floating. I was aware of myself but that was it. I couldn't feel, hear, smell anything. That's when I realized. I was dead.
It felt like an eternity being in 'the Void.' There was nothing. Nobody. No voices reassuring you about the end. No light at the end of a tunnel. No one guiding you. No one waiting for you.
According to the doctor and a nurse, I woke up in tears. I didn't reveal to them as to why I was crying. I realized there is possibly nothing waiting for us on the other side. Nothing we did in this life mattered in the end. The knowledge of 'the Void' left me despondent and wracked with grief.
Many have tried to assure me that 'the Void' was just a waiting room of sorts and that why I woke back up was because it wasn't my time etc etc.
Ever since that day, I've been feeling depressed. I've felt isolated. I've felt as if I've been constantly followed, watched, and often times feeling as if I was never alone.
There have been a series of unusual incidents since then but the following are the most serious.
One night I was dumping a bag of used kitty litter when I felt the air around the area of the incinerator chute room get oppressingly cold. As soon as I rounded the corner in the hall, I saw a shadow on the wall. The way it was angled, it was as if someone was standing in front of a standing lamp.
I ran back to my apartment to contact Lon Strickler and inform him of what happened. Then I heard banging on the door. Loud, rapid banging. I went to the peephole to look out. As I was asking who was there, something black blocked my view. I ran back to my apartment, locked myself in my room with the lights on and literally hid under the covers.
Much later I had an unusual dream. I dreamt of 2 men in black with sad pale faces staring at me, then 2 men in military greens watching or rather staring through me. Then the scene changed. I saw mountains and forests etc rushing past me. I was then being scrutinized by Slavic looking military types. The general feeling was that of being scrutinized and the like. Then I woke up with an odd sensation on my right inner wrist. It felt so incredibly cold and painful as if I had snow on it. The most disconcerting part was the perfect circle of raised flesh on my inner wrist. I took pictures and sent them to Lon.
Much later it happened again. I opted to record video for the Lon this time and discuss my problem. However in the middle of the recording, a red splotch had faded in right above the raised circle and it felt painfully cold.
Lon sent the photos and videos to his associates Butch Witkowski & Brett Butler and they set about seeing what can be done.
Lon made contact with something that apparently followed me after I came back from 'the Void.' It was apologetic for filling me with terror and the like. Based on what I was told, I'm guessing it recognized me. I'll explain that in a bit.
Lon revealed details which shocked me. He told me that he had impressions of torture & oppression. The entity that was connected to my family but not related. He was Chilean.
That's when it dawned on me. There was a friend of my father's who was Chilean. He was a military police in the Chilean army. He spoke out against Pinochet's past regime and its horrors. In 1980 he disappeared.
Psychic medium Brett Butler then informed me that my family friend didn't mean to terrify me. She also made contact with my father who had a message for me.
After everything was discussed, Lon and his associates helped me completely. - LCL, Flushing, NY
A huge 'thank you' from our family! I want to first write that Lon was genuinely concerned with our problem. We contacted other people who acted like we were wasting their time. They would make promises and then never get back to us. That happened 3 times since last May.
We moved into our home in June 2010 and were very comfortable until the next Summer. One of our family became extremely ill and was laid up in their room for almost 3 months. Around that time the disturbances began and continually increased, to the point to where we almost moved out. Family members and our pets were being attacked physically. After several months the activity decreased, but we knew that things were still not right.
In April 2014 the physical attacks resumed. One of our children felt like they had been sexually abused on one occasion. Our dogs were receiving large welts on their backs. Objects were moved and disappeared constantly. The entire house felt like it was bearing down on all of us.
We contacted our clergy and others who claimed that they could help, but they just prayed and splashed holy water around. This seemed to intensify the bad energy and sick feelings throughout the house. We talked to other groups and individuals who we found on the internet. The best they could do was to try and convince us that we didn't need to give up.
A woman in my church volunteer group suggested I contact Lon after hearing him on a radio show. He talked to us right away and set our minds at ease. He showed us how to calm the activity on our own, while he did remote work. I don't know how many times and number of hours we talked but each conversation was informative and built our confidence. He was able to determine events in our lives even though we never told him. Before this happened to us, I never believed in the supernatural. Reality hit us right between the eyes.
The disturbances have totally ceased for 4 months with no lingering ill feelings or frightening sensations. Lon has regularly checked in on us to see how we were getting along.
I thought it was important that I add my testimonial. Just reading the other comments makes me feel so fortunate Lon came into our lives and that he gives so much of himself to people he doesn't know. LW, Sunrise, FL
Lon Strickler saved my life.....that is the truth of it and always will be from me to anyone who asks. I have never met him so this may sound like a remarkable or even deluded thing to say but it is so and I would like to briefly share some of my story.
Any person, after a series of blows could lose his nerve. This year I lost my husband whom I was so grateful to have found — it was the real thing. He left with no real explanation, though we were happy as any two people might be. I consoled myself with the care of my young niece and her mother, my younger sister — my only remaining family. In 2014, they both turned away from me as well with the explanation that I was 'mean.' I had never done anything other than dote on my niece, probably to a fault.
My landlord said he was selling the house where I lived near them and that I would have to move. I respectfully agreed and left everything as it had been when I moved in. I cleaned and polished every surface. The landlord toured the home with me when I handed in my keys and said it just looked beautiful. He smiled as he looked in every room. The day after I left, I had to go to the library by the old place. New people were moving in. So he changed his mind or had never planned to sell. It wasn't my business, really and thought, well, he had to do what he has to do. A month later he sent a rambling letter with odd and bitter accusations that had no basis is fact stating he would return 0 of my deposit because I had left the place such a mess! I let this go. The man seemed to be disturbed if not possessed. He had harassed me for two months before I left yet had been confused that he hadn't been able to 'get my goat.' I was always kind and respectful to him despite the odd and contradictory and rude things he was saying to me. He had been trying to pick a fight I now see - but I didn't fight. I didn't understand what was going on.
I moved to the only port in the storm, a property I owned but which needed work. There the neighbors, one after another did brazen and destructive things. One tore down my back stairwell — my fire escape in fact. Another tore down my fence, not bordering his property even and I happened to see him trying to tear down the remaining fence — also far from his yard – and stopped him. Another tore out my rose bushes. Still others hosted an odd demonstration on my lawn with balloons [they didn't ask if they could do this] about the height of my home, or some such. Things were just.....weird.
I had been stalked by a young man who seemed disturbed and possibly dangerous the previous year. The one positive in my having to move had been that this person no longer knew where my home was. He used to walk past my old home on full moon nights. It was...creepy. On Sept 9th, I started to leave my new home one evening for the store and there was this young man! Sleeping on my doorstep. I later learned that a friend of mine for decades had sought out this young man in a homeless camp to tell him exactly where my new home was. He was very sorry, he said and could not explain why he had done this.
I found myself a nervous wreck with weeping despair and anxiety.
Somehow a message came to me from spirit to seek out an Amish source to solve my problem. I believe that my deceased loved ones who were all very strong in spririt watch over me. How this was going to help me, I had no idea---it seemed like an odd message to me as well. I have always admired Amish things but have no particular association with the Amish. My grandfather once told me that his grandmother had been from Austria but that is really the only vaguely possible connection I could even imagine for the message. I was desperate, bereaved and barely able to function. I have knowledge of the spiritual, paranormal and psychological — I'm interested in the entirely of human experience. As much as I did not like to admit it, my symptoms and the rapid succession of odd occurences seemed akin to demonic oppression and/or a curse more than anything else.
I began to research things Amish.....good neighbor hex sign, perhaps? A prayer for protection? I came upon Lon's site, Astral Perceptions Universal. I read his account which he notes he had decided to repost about his experience around the York County, PA haunted site and the Pow Wow - Long Lost Friend text. I followed the link to the text on Lon's site and read aloud every prayer for protection I could find. I also wrote to Lon to ask for help. This was late at night. The next day, I was completely turned around. I had HOPE---I felt light! I saw my own worth despite how others had or might treat me. I felt protected, safe, relaxed and in short....alive again. I did not know whether or not Lon had gotten my message but I sensed that either he had and had tried to help me and/or the prayers in the Hohman text had helped me. I wrote to thank Lon for the Hohman prayers alone and to update him from the first time I had written. Lon wrote me back to let me know that he had done an energy session & clearing---he had helped me! It made all the difference. Lon & Bill Bean are the two most sincere healing and helping persons I have ever known blessed by God who truly care.
Thank you, Lon.....you saved my life....AD, Columbus, OH
Our family is grateful for Lon Strickler's commitment and amazing insight. I would recommend his services to anyone who has a supernatural disturbance. His ability to pinpoint our problem and concerns was incredible. Thank you for being there. HH, Henrico County, VA
Some might have said I was a bit of a skeptic, when referring to paranormal or supernatural occurrences. That was until it became VERY REAL in our family. I watched my sister be torn apart by something that was not only affecting her mentally by bringing thoughts to her mind that were not her own, but also emotionally and physically. (Unknowingly speaking and writing words not of her language).
In our home there was an ongoing heavy feeling when you walk into the room or the coldness that was in different places at any given time. Let’s not forget the banging on the walls, the TV being turned on and off, lights being turned on, etc.
Our family had been trying to find help with the paranormal activities we were experiencing for a year and half before we found, “Spirit Rescue International” and met Lon. After much had been done through “SRI”, Lon chose to independently continue to help save our family from what was tearing us apart. From the very beginning, my sister and I were always finding people that said they would help but when things got bad or they got the evidence they wanted, they left. Lon is one of the few people who never did. Lon took our emails, Skype messages, and even phone calls all hours of the day. Let’s be honest, a lot activity occurred at night, late at night. He provided us with constant stability that meant, and still means, the world to us.
Lon sent positive energy in many forms our way. I knew very little about the energy within ourselves, until Lon helped us to understand the importance of it. He taught us how to consciously and unconsciously become in tune with ourselves. Even though I am still learning about the ways of “meditation” and the “chakra”, he provided the tools for me to do so.
During our journey protection was a much needed thing. We were guided with the tools and a better understanding of our Holy Guardian Angel. [I guess there was a reason I was drawn to “Tanzanite”, especially since I’m really not a fan of purple.]
Over the last several months, Lon was able to use all the gifts he has been blessed with to get us where we are today. He brought to light the abilities that members of my family have and what needed to be done to bring this long journey to a halt. Every day however will have to be conscious effort to bring more positive energy and less negative into our lives. It doesn’t really seem like a hard thing to do but when you think about things that could bring a type of negative energy there is a lot. For example: the car wont start, cant find your shoes that you know were by the door where you left them, the kids fighting as kids do, the stove being turned up to high and burning the food, the list could go on and on. But the thing is now, I am able to recognize those things and do my best to handle the stress and negative feelings appropriately.
My world is different; my eyes are more open to the things not seen as well as the things within. All the things we were taught and given were abundant. Lon, the things you knew were things unknown except to a very few. The things you saw were things so real but not seen to us. I don’t think I could ever find the right words to say exactly how much you have helped us. Your knowledge and abilities are something I am trying to still understand. But one thing I do know, is that you were given the knowledge and abilities you have, to help and inform others. It is all REAL, so very real. Remember, I was a bit of a skeptic as well as the one who questioned things because of my faith. But now, I am the one who is STRONGER in their faith and question things only to find answers to them.
You are a part of my family, my brother, my friend.
God Bless and Take Care,
EH & SH, Sioux City, IA
Lon - may you always maintain the desire to help people in trouble. Your words and actions hit me like a thunderbolt during a very troubling time. I will never forget our conversations. You accepted me when others turned me away - and you know who I'm talking about. It's no wonder why you left. Follow your heart always - stay true to your feelings - never stray away - don't allow others to minimize what you do. Surround yourself with love & empowerment, just like you told me. I fear that you ignore what is best for you in order to help others. I will pray for you. Please feel free to use me as a reference. JL, Ann Arbor, MI
Thank you for taking your time to help my daughter and I. We had no idea what was causing the disturbances in her home. Every time we asked for help we were ridiculed. When our pastor refused to help us we felt like we had come to the end of the rope.
A friend on Facebook recommended that we contact you. I feel like we were touched by an Angel. When I first talked to you over the telephone I really felt a calmness come over me. My daughter said she saw my face go from a look of fear to a look of peace. She started to cry as I talked to you.
We will never forget the experience and your commitment to us. Lon, we thank you with all our heart. DI, Oakland, MD
Your insight & consultation was truly a blessing. I fear what may have become of me if you hadn't stepped in when you did. I will follow your recommendations. I feel that I can now move on with my life and put the fear behind me. CH, Seattle, WA
For years at this house we've experienced paranormal activity. Flashes of light out of nowhere, the sound of women whispering in such a way that what was being said was not discernible, autographed pictures vanishing for awhile then reappearing, a toothbrush moving back and forth of its own volition as it rested inside of a cup, a mysterious rap on a door of one of the rooms, right after the door had been shut (quite frequent in nature) and towards the end the lifting and moving of a heavy piece of furniture a few inches and then being set down again. It was not dragged as that piece of furniture rests on a carpet and it would have been easy to discern if that had happened. Lon Strickler came in and was able to clear the house out in 1 hour! A truly incredible and never to be forgotten experience for me was the unearthly clicking sound I heard from the room he was working from as he was blasting the entities with energy. Sounds from an entity or entities from another dimension. When I think of Lon's fabulous and caring effort, I think about the old Carly Simon song "Nobody Does it Better", for it certainly applies to Lon and his remarkable abilities. - (original testimonial revised by current 'Astral Perceptions' client) TL, Atlanta, GA
