I don't take this type of story seriously at all. I think this is just an evangelical Christian lying about her past in an attempt to convert people to her beliefs.

Here is a good example of something it is hard to take seriously.

When I first started to do Eastern meditation, I felt an incredible peace. I felt that I was fading away and merging with something greater. It seemed I was literally one with the universe...

Nearly everyone here has started eastern meditation. How many beginers can honestly say they have had the experiences she relates? I think she hast just read descriptions of the experiences of yogis and has based her supposed experiences on these.

I think the vast majority of what is written about yoga and meditation is absolute rubbish, and doubly so when it is written by born again Christians opposed to the practice.

Hendrik, a minor correction to your statement In fact only on the cross he uttered, "I and my father are one". This comes from John 10:30 well before the crucifiction.
