Hi, guys —

My name is Robin and I'm a 15 year old Catholic. I was wondering if it's possible to feel the hand of God upon yourself. Let me explain a little bit. Last night I was at youth group and during adoration I suddenly felt a pressure on my head. It felt as if I was wearing a head band and during the rest of the night I found myself checking my head to make sure I hadn't put a head band on earlier. Even right now, I still feel a slight pressure, but it doesn't hurt or anything; in fact, it relaxes me and takes all my worries away.

  • Could I be feeling the hand of God?
  • or is it just a random thing?

I'm really curious.

Mary Ann replied:


Thank God for allowing you to feel something that gives you peace. If this came during Adoration, it may be a circulatory or muscular manifestation of a different mental state, one that is new to you, or it may be God's way of giving you assurance.

Don't focus on it, but do enjoy God's peace and praise Him.

Mary Ann
