Advantages COMFORTING TO KNOW YOUR LOVED ONES ARE SAFE
Do I believe in Life after Death, well the answer has to be a defineate yes, I believe your spirit lives on and watches over us, your physical body has gone, but your spirit lives on.Before I go on to explain my views and feelings, you possilby need to know that I am a spiritualist and a working medium, so I link to two worlds together, thats the earth plain and the spirit world. I do this in Spiritualist Churches bringing evidence from the Spirit World.
How I got here?From a child there were times when I knew what would happen, I talked to people in my head (no I'm not mad), I would ask questions and would know the answer. I must say I never did anything with this or acknowledge it, it is only now in later life that I realise that was 'the angels' watching over me.
As a family we went for tarot reading, clairvoyants and all sorts, hoping for a glimpse of the future. But it's not really about that, its about getting a little comfort knowing that your loved one is now out of pain and at peace.Life continued and I reached 30 - being 30 is a marker in peoples lives, it is a time for reflecting on the past and looking towards your future, you are no longer a teenage rebel, or someone still wanting to be a rebel, you are now looking at where you want to be in 10 yrs, 20yrs time.
Well it was at this age that I started going to my local spiritualist church, I was made welcome and felt so comfortable there, it was really nice. I started attending regulary and learning more about spiritualism and mediumship - hearing evidence given by the mediums on the rostrum to the people in the congregation.The Church ran awareness classes, it was hear that I discovered things that I had been experiencing throughout my life was actually spirit trying to communicate with me. I learned to listen to what was given to me, (I had in the past, but dismissed it, I felt people would think me foolish). I gained in confidence and passed messages on, for a while it became my party piece at family get-togethers. One Christmas I spent 4 hrs in the back room doing the party piece for all the guests, I really didn't mind it was experience for me and it was nice to give evidence and get the feedback.
To cut a long story short, I gained in confidence and learned more and more about the history of spiritualism and how the beginning of Modern Spiritualism started with the Fox Sisters in 1848 - with the Hydesville Rappings - (in brief this was where they discovered they had a ghost and communicated with rappings to answer questions, which were proved right). Since then many great mediums have been acknowledged and the Spiritualist movement has grown and become more well known.Finally:
Personal evidence I have had which has given me great warmth, my husbands late father who I have never met often comes through to me giving me new evidence to give to my husband, this always brings pleasure to my hubby as he misses his father a lot. My husband was totally anti spirtualism and did not believe in life continuing until we had our blessing in the church and he heard the medium tell someone where to find specific items that belonged to her late husband. He spoke to the woman after the service and has been converted ever since.My most special moment happened recently when I lost my beloved dog Bonnie and a week later my dad in February this year.
Bonnie died in a veternal hospital several miles from our home, she had been there a week as they tired very hard to save her life. We stayed in a hotel the night she died so we could pick up her ashes the next day. I was sobbing so hard on the bed in the hotel while my husband bought our bags in. For some unknown reason I looked up and saw a white light and as I starred (questioning myself on what I was seeing), I saw and heard Bonnie yelping the way she did when she was happy. Strangely this made me stop crying. Being me and still questioning myself I checked the time on my watch - 1650hrs. When Roger got back into the room I told him what I saw. He took me out for a walk thinking the fresh air would do me good, whilst out we took a call from the crematorium, still being skeptic about what I saw I asked what time she was cremated and it was the same time I saw her in the light.The next morning we went to collect her ashes, when we got there the place was beautiful, as we approached the office to pick up Bonnies Ashes I could hear her barking again. I must say it did feel strange even with me being a medium - I give to other people - not take messages for myself, so this was a strange experience.
A week later I was at my fathers side, he had been in his bed now 4 days after a massive stroke and had not woken, he was on TLC, which basically means keep him comfortable as he was going to die, it was just mins, hours, days, no one new. It was a rare moment on that day that I was on my own with dad, you see we never left his side we were there 24hrs - we all took it in turns, always 2 or more so he would never be alone. Any my sister had been there nearly over 24hrs so she popped out for a break, so now it was my time to talk to dad on my own, I sensed my grandfather with him (that's dad's dad), he had been there everytime I visited. But this day, I talked to dad and told him it was ok to let go and how much I loved him. I put my head down for a minute or two and then looked up towards the end of the room. It was then I saw the white light with Bonnie in it barking and wagging her tail, I turned and told dad it was time and Bonnie was here for him (she was dad's dog before we had her after his first stroke 8 yrs previously), he died a few hours later in my arms.What I saw gave me strength to come to terms with losing dad and Bonnie. If I can bring comfort to others the same way, then I am glad that I believe that our spirit lives on and that they communicate with us.
Sorry its so long, it seems like me my reviews are a bit of a chatterbox.
