Anonymous Devotee from USA says: Dear Hetal Ji, thank you for giving this opportunity of sharing His miracles. This is my second experience that I am posting here.
We are living in the Phoenix almost since 10 years and we drove there with our SUV lot of times. I make Ganesh Idol with rice flour every year during Ganesh festival and do Nimarjanam (putting the idol in water) in that lake. That is beautiful lake. We look our parents and my in laws, when they visited us and parked the car almost in water lot of times.
There is a visitor center on the top of one of the mountains there, where you get see very nice view of the lake. And adjacent to Lake, there is a fence, but if you look from there it is a steep, somewhere below there is water, as if you are viewing from 50th floor. I got a dream 2 times, in which I am driving our SUV so fast on that mountain and suddenly visitor center appears and I just lose control and fall in the water from top of mountain along with SUV. And I got exact same dream twice. It is very scary in the dream, immediately woke up twice. I told this to my husband and we both laughed, how this can happen, no chance.
After couple of months, I completely forgot about the dream. This happened last year 2012 May. That time my kids were 5 year son and 3 year old daughter. My son asked my husband if we can go for fishing. Then my husband got a nice idea of going to this Lake Pleasant, so that we can park our SUV in the lake and do some fishing. I did not like that idea as it is summer and I do not like the heat, moreover we are vegetarians, so I did not like idea of fishing. But somehow my husband got so stubborn and he wanted to go to the lake for fishing that at any cost. So first we went to the store and got the fishing equipment, food for fish etc. My son was very excited. And myself and my daughter did not want to go. Moreover, I was feeling weird, light headed and dizzy all kinds of unhappy feelings.
So we all drove to the Lake. We almost reached the Park entrance (Lake is inside this park), then my husband noticed that we do not have enough gas. In case if we have to keep the engine on all the time after we park. I said oh is it lets come back tomorrow. Then he said you are always lazy, you just sit in the car. I will drive back and fill the gas. So he drove almost 15 miles back to fill the gas and came back to the Park. My weird feelings still continued, but I kept quiet as I did not want to disappoint them. By this time even my kids where tired, but still excited to do fishing and play in the water.
Now we were searching for a place to park our car and enjoy in the lake. The park is so huge and there are several spots, where you can park your car. Usually we go to a spot, where there are less people. But this time we could not find that place, we were driving searching for that spot. We could not figure it out, and then thought maybe they closed that spot. While driving in search of spot to park, suddenly I remembered my scary dream and told my husband again about that dream and just laughed, how can that happen, no way. We searched and searched and came back to the same spot we initially came to. There were lot of people enjoying there, but any way found a spot that we could park. My husband slowly parked our SUV. It is little bit steep, so I got down from the car, and checking if he is parking good. Then he parked in the lake and it looked good, so I said it is perfect, you can stop here. There was rock that SUV’s back tire supported on.
Since the parking was good, I was unbuckling my son’s car seat belt, and suddenly our SUV started moving slowly backwards in to the lake, not knowing what is happening. I was holding the car door, trying to balance with my one leg against the open car door and another on the ground, and was scolding my husband. I told you that is enough why are you going more in to the water. SUV did not stop, as it is too heavy for me to stop, then I realized it is somekind of accident. But I did not know what to do. I cannot leave the SUV as my son and daughter are there in the car and other side of the car my husband was hanging trying to get my daughter, atleast for my son I got the belt off, but my daughter is still belted. It didn’t even strike to me that I should shout for help. I was just running hanging to the car and it is moving little bit more fast. Water level in the car is increasing and my son and daughter started crying. Then some crowd came running and all of them together stopped the car and got my son and daughter out of the car first. They asked me to take care of the kids and they all hold on to the SUV.
Soon I came out of water my weird feeling everything stopped and I was little scared thinking of the incident. Then one of the Guys from the crowd, his name is Jessie, got equipment to pull the car out of the water, so he along with other pulled the car out of the water and every one there was so friendly and helpful. After pulling the car, all the water in the car was coming out, before getting the car out of the lake, most of the stuff in the car already fallen into the water. After the gush of water, Baba’s picture came and fell on the ground from the Car. It is as if Baba assuring me that I am here why fear. I was so amazed and felt very happy on seeing. I immediately picked Baba picture up with smile and kept in my pocket.
Everything else fell in to the water, except Baba’s picture which fell after pulling the car out. It is really Baba’s miracle. And I was feeling very happy that we got saved and no scary feeling also. My husband was still feeling scared and he even could not stop crying. We realized that the car moved, because he did not off the engine and left the car in reverse. For couple of minutes the car stopped because of the rock, which misleaded my husband. It is an accident. We thanked everyone, who helped and called AAA to get home along with SUV towed to home. I thanked Baba a lot for helping. He warned me earlier itself in the dream and nothing was straight forward that day. We had to go back for gas, we searched for the spot for so long, my weird feeling etc. But if something is in fate, Baba is the only one who can save. If we had found a spot that we usually go, we would not have got so much help from anyone as there will be very few or none there. So Baba made sure that we did not go to our regular spot. He saved from all angles. It’s one year that this incident happened, I still feel so much blessed and happy. I feel Baba always. I am sure Baba is with each and every devotee. Jai Sai Ram
