  1. Liebe Crystal,

    Vielen Dank für deine Geschichte. Auch ich habe einen Kindesmißbrauch erlebt. Ich war 2 !/2 Jahre alt. Der sexuelle Mißbrauch dauerte etwa 2 1/2 Jahre. Danach ist mein Vater mit dem Messer auf mich, auf meine Schwester und meine Mutter und Großmutter losgegangen. Ich war 6 Jahre alt. Das dauert 2-3 Jahre. Und vieles mehr.

    Ich hatte eine schlimme Kindheit. Von Gott fühlte ich mich verlassen. Als ich 12 Jahre alt war, plante ich jeden Tag meinen Selbstmord. Die Kirche in die gehen wollte, war verschlossen. Ich irrte durch die Straßen und war in höchsten Maße Selbstmord gefährdet. Meinen Ersten Selbstmordversuch hatte ich mit 19 Jahren.

    Im Januar 1985 starb der Bruder meiner Großmutter. Ich war sehr depressiv und dachte er darf sterben und ich darf nicht sterben. Ich hatte in der folgenden Nacht einen Traum.

    Ich saß im Auto von meiner Schwester und bin gestorben. Ich ging durch einen Tunnel und am Ende war Licht. Ich bin der Eltern von meiner Großmutter begegnet. Sie haben mich durch Räume geführt. Das war einfach schön, schön, schön. Sie haben mir erzählt wie gut es ihnen geht. Und haben mich zum Tunnel zurückbegleitet. Ich habe auf der Erde noch eine Aufgabe zu erfüllen. So lange die nicht erfüllt ist, darf ich nicht wiederkommen.

    Dieser Traum hat mich mein ganzes bisheriges Leben begleitet. Heute arbeite ich ohne Geld zu bekommen für das Stolpersteinprojekt für die Opfer aus dem Holocaust. Und ich habe meine Familiengeschichte aufgearbeitet. Auch ich habe mehrere Familienmitglieder durch den Holocaust verloren.
    Mit ganz liebevollen Grüßen Ihre Bärbel

  2. I have the book chasing heaven Given to me by my grandmother I am currently over half into it. Crystal inspires me to I don’t know why but to be a Christian that cares about God and Jesus also I have a few questions for her…I wonder would God keep me safe from the woman on the lose in Clayton, North Carolina.
