Being “Cracked Open” to Spirit
I was having breakfast at my local diner yesterday. It’s the kind of place where everyone pretty much knows everyone — and the hostess, “L,” knows I’m an intuitive. So as I worked on a short stack, she sat with me and asked why she’s all of a sudden started seeing the spirits of her dead loved ones.
They’ve been in her kitchen, by her bed at 3 in the morning, even in her car. She’s pretty freaked out, seeing Gramps who died 30 years ago. Yeah, it sounds all cool til its YOUR dead aunt riding shotgun on your way to pick up the dry cleaning. So why is this happening?
Well, L has had a rough couple of years, culminating in some serious surgery a few months back. I suspected her new ability was connected to this time period and she realized that it was. My take on it is that her beloved relatives are letting her know–in no uncertain terms — that they’re supporting her during this phase. Her troubles have made her focus on what’s key in her life, and the rest of the noise has dropped away. I like to think she’s been “cracked open” a little bit, and is now able to physically see who’s always been around her.
Some of you may know from my recent Facebook posts that I was out in Minnesota recently, after my sister entered the hospital. Something similar happened ; the urgency of her illness made me hyper-focused. I wasn’t cluttering my pointed little head with thoughts of cleaning litter boxes or my next deadline. And as I sat in that hospital room, I heard our mother’s voice more than once. Like she was right there (and still telling me to comb my hair off my face).
I think it has something to do with our energy frequency. During a tough moment, our focus is sharpened on the Now. Think about the aftermath of any tragedy, where people describe having seen angels around them, or perhaps deceased loved ones. They’re always there, but because we’re “clear,” we can physically see them, even as they vibrate at higher speeds. These are glimpses into the other dimensions all around us. Beautiful.
Meditation can help to make a space where we can more easily experience these higher-vibration experiences. Know that those we miss are always there, riding shotgun as we go to pick up the drycleaning. And surrounding us with their love.
