          Why Woman Claims Husband Has Exhibited ‘Frightening’ Behavior During His Quest For Enlightenment


          April 14, 2017

          Shannon says that for the last five years, her husband, Alex, has been on a spiritual pilgrimage. She claims that he has become obsessed with gurus, clairvoyants and aliens – all at the cost of their family, savings and business.

          Shannon claims that during this journey, her husband has exhibited some ‘frightening’ behavior, including bouts of manic laughter that last for 15 minutes to claims of traveling to other dimensions and looking God in the face.

          In the video above, she describes an incident that occurred three years ago in which Alex had to be rushed to the emergency room.

          “Alex went through a major emotional and physical breakdown,” Shannon claims. “Alex believed that he had traveled to the seventh dimension via meditations and had come face to face with God. Alex stopped eating, drinking and wouldn’t sleep because he believed that once he went to sleep, he would cease to exist.”

          “At that moment, I was in a constant state of meditation,” says Alex who was taken to the E.R. “They thought that I was losing my mind but I was extremely excited about what I had learned. They just could not understand it.”
