My life had taken a major turn, I would never be the same person again, and the things to come would never cease to fascinate me as I began to realize there is a lot more to this existence than the third-dimensional reality we all seem to experience.

It seemed to unlock a door, to not only was about to take place but a realization that sometimes events occur in our lives that are unexplainable and have no logical reason for their reality. After possibly discussing them with friends or relatives, they are dismissed and forgotten about. Such was the case several years ago. It was a cold Sunday, January morning in southern Indiana, the previous evening a cold front had blown through and deposited a few inches of snow. The morning was bright, sunny, and cold.

My three teenage daughters and I were preparing to leave for Sunday school when this ear piercing noise was heard from the field across from our rural home. Looking out, a large black panther was observed stretching and growling, ready to start its day. After doing its morning yoga, it hastened into the adjoining forest, never to be seen again.

We stood in awe, what was this big cat, larger than anything we had ever seen before doing here in the frozen northland of Indiana?

A journey of spiritual discovery

Where did this animal come from? It definitely is not native to these parts, even if it was a large cat; it is far larger than any cat I have ever seen.

It is my belief there are many alternate universes, more than we as humans can comprehend. Regardless if we are aware of them or not, these alternate worlds exist around us and occupy the same space and existence we do. Sometimes, for reasons unknown, the veil is lifted and we receive a glimpse of what might be.
