Catching Feelings (Testimony)

When I told him that he’d fallen asleep on me the night before, I asked him how, why, and what did he feel. He looked at me and gave me a one-word answer. “Peace!” is what he said.
The night before, a family member became distressed, distraught, and heavily weighed down by a recent mistake he’d made. He spoke about the countless number of blunders he’d made and how he was still making them. He was tired of his shortcomings and felt worthless. Clearly, he felt screwed up and that maybe, his life wasn’t worth living.
I’d never seen him break down and cry out so passionately and painfully. When a person is experiencing pain, I’m typically compassionate; however, I started experiencing something way beyond compassion. I suddenly felt an immense amount of pain in my own heart, as if I was the one in such emotional turmoil. As the pain increased, I realized that I was literally catching feelings ― his feelings.
I desperately wanted him to experience pain relief and peace, so I hastily grabbed my oil and began to pray. I applied my hands to his torso with every intention to permeate him with peace.
I have no idea how long I’d been praying, but I noticed he was very still and silent. I wiped my tear soaked face and began to shake him and call his name. He was asleep!
The next day, I spoke to him and mentioned that he fell asleep and when I began questioning him about what he’d felt when I laid my hands on him, that’s when he replied “Peace.”
