Why I'm asking about the possibility is that I've got a set of "memories" that are not celestial in origin. I've got a more recent set that is - some things may be open to interpretation, but that they are more recent isn't. Now, the possibilities are that I could be 1) insane, 2) deluding myself, 3) interpreting something incorrectly, or 4) completely correct. I'm trying to narrow it down a little bit.
The problem is - the universe is a huuuuuge place. Ideas and memories of what an "angel" is, how "the creator" works, etc etc etc, are very many, very varied, and often do not match up with one another.
As such, all someone can really say is "Yeah, it is POSSIBLE." It might be possible in my paradigm, but not in yours, or the other way around. It might make sense in my paradigm, but not yours, or the other way round. Your paradigm - your understanding and memories of how "god" and the universe work, might be completely different from everyone else around here.
It's a bit like asking people interested in fiction "Do alternate universes exist?" Well they do in Star Trek, but not in Babylon 5.
I'm not suggesting your memories are fictional - just that as they might not be from the same "world" as someone else's, they probably play by different rules, and so it flat out doesn't give you more information to ask other people what things were like for them.
That's why I wanted more information about your memories and your ideas - so I can give input as to whether or not I think it would make sense for any divine beings you could have been involved with to "convert" someone.

I'd never say "trust your instincts". I'd be more likely to suggest you question your instincts, and work out why they are what they are in the first place.
