I have now come to a point in my development where I can sense when a spirit is around and trying to communicate. It is really hard to explain. I get a little anxious, catch myself zoning out, and if I am not paying attention to it I will get tingles on either side of my face. That is what happened on this day in particular. I was not paying close attention to the signs because I had no upcoming classes coming up or practice readings. I couldn’t shake the feeling all day. I eventually went to lie down to be alone in my quiet space. I decided to take my notebook with me just incase I started getting any random thoughts or ideas. Boy am I glad I did! As I laid there a random name popped into my head. Lately I have been getting names in my readings so I knew not to ignore it. I grabbed my notebook and wrote it down. Then more thoughts came popping in. Baseball memory with dad, teddy bear old given as a baby, great childhood, dark side, bad decisions, camping memories. All of these things I wrote down. I was stumped. Why am I getting this stuff? Who is it? I sat and pondered awhile. I did personally know of someone who had lost a child by that name. Could that be? No! No way! So I did what anyone else would have done…I stalked FACEBOOK! No way I was going to bring this up to my friend if it wasn’t true. I had only met her within the last year. We were by no means close enough for me to just bring this up unless I was 100% sure. So stalking I did. Looking for anything. A picture, a post, anything! I got NOTHING! Absolutely nothing that could validate any of the information that I got. Maybe I made all that stuff up? Maybe it was just my imagination? Sigh…I dated the page in my notebook and went along with my life. About six days later I was scrolling through Facebook and I started seeing post from my friend who had lost her child. She was posting memories because his birthday was coming up. Through her celebration I could feel the pain she was undoubtedly in. I admired the pictures all the while my heart breaking for her. Then all of a sudden a picture came through my timeline that STOPPED MY WORLD! One single picture. I was so shocked I actually threw my phone across the bed! I was in utter disbelief. It was a picture of a baseball cap next to an old teddy bear. She tagged his dad in the post making reference to the memory that went with the baseball cap. After I composed myself I did reach out to her to let her know. We chatted for a bit about my experience and I sent her a photo of my journal entry from the week prior. This beautiful soul found me so that I could give his mom the message that he is there celebrating with her and that this was his gift to her. Nothing like a sons love for his mother!! Thank you D for choosing me to be a part of that beautiful experience!
I need to preface this post with a warning…YOU MAY NEED A KLEENEX!
