|This photo of the moon breaking through the clouds reminds me of how today felt to me.|
Something amazing happened to me today, but before I go into it there is a little back story which will help to pave the way for where I am going with this. About three years ago I was sitting with someone who knows me very well. We had been talking about my ability to see spirits and pick up on the emotional energy of people and even places. This somehow led to a curiosity in channeling. So, this person agreed to perform an experiment with me. We sat in chairs directly in front of one another, knees touching, hands clasped. We did a few minutes of meditation before I asked if there was anyone there who wished to communicate something through me.
It didn’t take long before what seemed like a hundred voices came flowing through…all talking at the same time to the point that you couldn’t make anything out. As soon as I began to notice it, the person doing this with me abruptly broke hand contact and said that it was too overwhelming. Of course I felt the same way and I remember thinking that if channeling was like that…it probably wasn’t something which I wanted to pursue. So, for a few years I completely let it drop, without much of a thought. About a year ago, a friend of mine was going through some turmoil in life with several things. There was a relationship issue which is sort of beside the point for this post, so I will not give it any further attention. There was also some spiritual difficulty which we’ve been working through for several years and will continue to do so.
One point relevant to this topic was the loss of someone very dear to this person. The person lost was a spiritual leader, someone crucial in helping my friend to find their way on their path. My friend was at a loss in so many ways. Feeling as though lost in a storm with no compass. The other point relevant to this post is a grandmother a generation or so removed of my friend who was discovered long after she was gone. There is significance for my friend in this relative, not only in family connection but in the spiritual sense. That is all that I am going to mention about the departed and the situation, because those are not my tales to tell. However, I decided at that time a year ago to try to tune in to these people in an attempt to find at least some comfort and hopefully even some answers. Until today I was getting little bits and pieces of things…small flashes of color and image…a word or two here and there.
Well, when we finally connected today it had been over a month since we had spoken. There were questions which my friend desperately needed answers to. I intentionally and fully opened myself up and before I knew it was having a full conversation with the first spirit that I mentioned…the spiritual leader. My friend was asking questions and when the spirit would answer I noticed a change come over my body. My posture changed….the way that my body felt was different. Then when the spirit would go quiet, my posture and feeling went back to normal with a sensation of a wave almost or a whoosh. I know it isn’t coming across clearly, but that is the best way that I can describe it. The things coming out of my mouth were not worded in the way in which I normally speak and honestly some of it completely confused me because I had no idea what it meant. My friend explained to me the side stories behind the words, which were only spoken between the two of them. Interesting enough huh? Well there’s more.
The second spirit…the grandmother figure came through in a funny way. My friend had asked why she wasn’t around much lately. Before I could even blink the words, ‘Because you haven’t asked to talk to me yet’ were coming out of my mouth. I could feel a different energy. It was loving and warm…you couldn’t be in the presence without smiling. My friend had been trying to figure out exactly where she was from so that a visit could be made. However, my friend hasn’t been able to get far in the search because some vital records had been destroyed. Only bits, pieces, and clues have presented themselves. Well, she began showing me images to give hints and they made no sense because one of the images she showed to me seemingly had nothing to do with the other. She was very insistent that I didn’t dismiss it, so I did some pretty extensive research today and found that there is only one location in the entire United States which has all of the images that she showed to me combined. To make it better this location is in one of the states in which he was given as a possibility as to her origin.
While I’m not yet sure where all of this is going to lead me, to say that I am in awe would be an understatement. Not only has it opened my eyes to the importance of my spirituality, but it made me so happy to bring comfort to my friend as well as a very important clue in the quest to find roots. This day ended up so utterly different than I had intended it to be, but instead of annoyance, I feel gratitude. Having this happen has given me something which has been needed for a very long time…that confirmation that I am on the right path. That my desire to truly help people can be fulfilled. What bigger gift can a person receive? In my opinion…nothing could be bigger than that. This was the push I needed to dive back into my spirituality fully. While I am not sure what, if any further role channeling will have to do with my path this experience has made it apparent to me that my path is definitely a spiritual one…and that I need to give this aspect of myself more attention than I have in the past few years.
