Hidden Spirituality in Schizophrenia

I was having a session at work today with a beautifully unique woman of ~ 50 years of age who suffers with symptoms of schizophrenia. We were discussion a variety of issues when she began to tell me about the horrendous abuses she had endured throughout her life.
She stated that during a very painful situation in her life she experienced an event, not sure if it was an "out of body experience," or what you would call it, but knew it was from God.

She stated that she experienced such a feeling that it overwhelmed her whole being. She stated that she knew it was God's love that she was experiencing but could not come up with any word that could describe what she felt.
It was amazing beyond belief........

She stated that the only way to describe what she felt would be to think of the love that a child must feel when they are in their mother's womb.

That statement caught me off guard.
The overwhelming feeling of love that God gave as a consolation to her during a time of horror, was so beautiful and powerful that she could not describe the feeling. She stated that it infused her whole being and left no part of her untouched.
She could not find any word to describe the power of the feeling except to say, that this Godly encounter could only be described by the power of love that must be felt by an infant surrounded in the womb of it's mother.......
