Messages from the other side, from the dead, from those who have crossed, people who have passed on- use whatever euphemisms you want- often raise the skeptic in folks. I mean how can that possibly be true???? It can be true and it can also be helpful in healing.
Let me tell you one of the many stories I have about being the recipient of messages. I’ve been going to see Wendy for probably close to 20 years. I’ve heard from my grandmother, father, ex husband and many others. The best story that I share with people who are skeptical happened about 15 or more years ago.
When I sat down with Wendy, she said “Get rid of the purple chair in your office. Your grandmother says it doesn’t belong there. It’s not a work chair.” Ok. To be fair, this shockingly neon purple rolling chair probably wasn’t really business like in a black leather sort of way. But when did my grandmother become an interior designer? Obviously- on the other side. I took the chair out of my office and put it in what we fondly called “the sewing room”.
I went six months later or so and Wendy says “Your grandmother wants to know why you still have that purple chair.” All I could do was laugh. Obviously, it wasn’t about the chair in the office. It was the chair’s mere existence! What I didn’t tell you is that I was living in what had once been my grandparents’ house. Apparently this purple chair was an egregious affront to the decor. (It was rather garish.) I donated the chair to the church auction and it was never mentioned in any further sessions.
Why do I tell you this funny story? One because it’s funny. Two because Wendy had never been to the house and had never seen the chair. It was prior to social media so no pictures were even posted of it! Thirdly because messages from those who have crossed over bring peace to many.
Just today I spoke with someone who went to see a medium after her father passed. She’d been struggling with the grief and had some questions. The medium she used shared some facts that made it clear it was her father who was communicating and then proceeded to clear up some concerns the daughter had. She shared with me that the messages she received have helped her heal.
Can you imagine the hearts that could heal if we more easily and readily communicated with and listened to the messages sent to us from the other side? How many people die with things unsaid. Doesn’t it make sense to utilize those who are gifted in this form of communication for connection and healing? When I first started working with Wendy, I was clear that I wanted a connection with my father but I couldn’t speak “spirit language”. I still am not fluent in the communication. I’m working on it and with practice will continue to get better. In the meantime, I will continue to connect with those who are abled and allow the messages to come my way!
