Priesthood Blessing Gone Wrong

Well this week we had two baptisms!  That was fun.  Everything went well and M and A were really happy about everything. The elders had a baptism too so we had three that night.  But before that, one of our investigators had an accident with her knee and can`t walk really well, so we explained about priesthood blessings and asked if she wanted one and she said yes (which was really good because she and her husband are really stubborn.  They ask a ton of questions).  So the next day we brought two of the elders to give her a blessing.  The Spirit was really strong and we were sure she was going to say she felt super good.  But when it was done, we asked her how she felt, and she said, "to be honest, I feel really dizzy."  We were basically really silent. We didn`t know what to do.  Then she said she had this feeling of fear.  I started to panic, and basically just wanted to start telling her all the reasons the church is true so she wouldn`t think this was an answer.  But then Hna. Rios started explaining how she felt and it turns out that it wasn`t fear, it was just really strong and she had never felt that before.  So we resolved that, but the elders didn`t know what to do.  The Elder said that he was thinking, "What did I do?" and was worried that they`d stop listening to us.  But it just goes to show that the Spirit works differently with everyone.  But it was a very interesting experience.
