During this time I have noticed that there can be a certain 'musty smell' around those who don't get around much (said with love). I used to think was just associated with the older generation, as I remember smelling it around my grandparents as a child. I've come to the conclusion this is 'stale energy', when we aren't moving around or using the energy trapped within our bodies.
The last couple of weeks when I've come home, I've had a whiff of it as I work on my laptop at night and I couldn't understand why. I knew I'd had a shower and changed.
Tonight I mentioned it to my cousin, who asked if I thought I was bringing 'someone' home with me. Talk about an A-ha! moment! Now this might seem like a perfectly obvious explanation, considering what I do. However, given that most of the people I massage for have reached the age where they have lost a lot of loved ones, I usually shut myself down completely before I leave my house. It would be just too overwhelming (and noisy) otherwise and I wouldn't be able to focus on what I'm really there to do.
I sat on my couch and talked quietly to a beautiful, frail female spirit. I asked her to put her hands in mine, to trust that I would help her. I reassured her that there was nothing to be scared of, I would help her to cross over. I could feel the tingling sensation in my hands as she did so. I told her I was calling the angels to come in and take her to love and light. She was quite anxious and I explained they wouldn't take her unless she was ready and willing. I would stay right here with her until she felt the time was right.
The room became warm and I knew her escorts had arrived. There was a knock at the door (two light taps) and as soon as she saw them she 'flew' across the room to be greeted with open arms. It was beautiful and happened so fast, I didn't even have time to say goodbye to her. Isn't that so wonderful? Her fear was unfounded. As soon as she felt the unconditional love, she knew she was going home and it was where she wanted to be. I would like to believe we will all feel that magical moment when it's our time, and if we don't, I hope that someone will help us to discover it.
with love, respect and integrity
