When I was a child I recall going to bed with what I called "Eye Aches." I would sob myself to sleep in pain. I would become overwhelmed emotionally and shut down with headaches that left me hidden in my room with the curtains drawn. Today, they would have been considered migraines. I now know that I was an empathic child, surrounded by spirits and I felt horribly misunderstood.
One of the earliest memories I had with spirit was when I was 10 years old. For some reason, in a flippant humorous fashion, my mother told me that when she died she would come back to haunt me. This comment wasn't funny to me, it was terrifying. Our family dog Sammy, had gone missing, she was tied up to a chain outside of our house. It was December 1982, the winters were colder then with much more snowfall, and we searched for her for weeks. She broke the chain but had several feet of it still attached to her collar. My grandmother had been sick for a long time and she passed away January 1, 1983, the day Sammy arrived at our front door emaciated, on the edge of death too. The night that Sammy returned, I recall having a very vivid dream, I found myself standing on my driveway. My grandma appeared suddenly and approached me. I was scared to death. She came up to me and tried to hug me, she said that she loved me and asked how I was. In fear, I immediately told her to stop talking, to leave and not return. I realize now that she came to visit me before she went home. At the time I couldn't comprehend the amount of energy and effort it took for her to appear to me and that she came back to show me how much she loved me.
When people tell me that they don’t possess intuition I immediately ask them several questions. I’m determined to show them how their intuition presents itself in their everyday life. Have you ever dreamt of anyone you know that has passed including your pets? Did you have a conversation with them? How did they appear? What did they say? Sit with that for a moment. It’s a dream. It’s the easiest place for spirit to appear to us. We are in a relaxed state, not using our perceptions and judgements to block their energy. It’s a brilliant way to communicate and they do it all the time!! Next time you dream of someone, don’t dismiss them, if they’re alive they want your attention. Pay attention to the message, perhaps make a call and connect with them. You don’t know what they want to say to you unless you give them the opportunity
