I've always had a connection with spirit, receiving messages and insights, even when I didn't want to hear them, However, I've always loved sharing my experiences and imparting the wisdom I receive..
I met lots of wonderful people, but I have chosen this one for today's story.
A lady I met was still grieving the loss of her father after many years and although she believed in the fact that spirit is around us all the time, she couldn't feel his presence and it was tearing her apart. She'd tried various ways to connect with him, like purchasing the house she had lived in as a child. She'd been disappointed when she moved in and still she couldn't feel him there.
I told her he was around her all the time, that she didn't have to go back to where he used to be.
We went to her cabin and I gave her some Reiki. He appeared beside her and kept saying 'I'm sorry, so sorry'. He really wanted to let her know he knew he'd hurt her before he passed over. He also mentioned something about a ship in a bottle, although we never did work out what that was about. I hope that when she returned her Mum was able to shed some light on that.
When I told her what had happened, she explained how disappointed she was, that they had such a beautiful, loving relationship, she was so sure he would have let her know he was there. A lot of us do that, we expect the connection to remain the same after someone we love has passed, but all too often the signs aren't big or bold enough for us to recognise.
I asked her to begin to notice songs she heard, especially if they reminded her of her Dad, to notice synchronistic events, misplaced items, electrical disturbances or unexplained noises. She assured me she'd been doing that for years and nothing had happened. I explained that because she'd been so desperate and this had been followed by devastating disappointment, she'd begun to feel depressed or down about it. Spirit needs our vibration to be high for them to connect. They are existing at a different frequency to us and it is tiring for them to come down to our level of consciousness. If we're feeling sad or negative it can be too hard for them to make contact.
With the Reiki she'd received and the conversation we'd just had, I said there would be a sign soon, she just needed to believe it to be true. As we sat there talking, we were startled by a clear sound of something being tapped on glass in the room. I looked at her and said 'There's your proof that your father is around you'. She was so excited and happy and promised she would try to remain open to signs from her Dad.
Several days later a group of us were having tea and discussing the highlights of our cruise. She told us hers was someone tapping on a glass in her room. We smiled at each other as the rest of the group looked at her, trying to work out what she was talking about.
Today I want those of us who desperately miss someone to raise our vibration, to allow our loved ones to let us know they are thinking of us.
with love, integrity and respect
