Empathy and Self awareness
I remember well when I got a call from Whitley about Anne. Mary was driving and as we crossed the bridge to our Condo my phone rang and it was Whitley. Anne had just passed.
It’s hard to explain the feelings I had they were a mix of my own and Whitley’s and it was one of those more powerful moments in one’s life. All at once someone who was a friend and that you loved is gone. I’ve been there so many times now I’m losing count. So many times wrestling with my thoughts about it and yet the same conclusion is always there. Nothing ever really dies.
As in the past I have communicated with the dead, a word that really doesn’t have the right fit. A better definition would be passed on, passed on from our sometimes tired and worn bodies back to which we have always been, Spirit.
Anne wrote a brilliant piece in her diary that explains this so much better than I can and I highly recommend reading it: http://www.unknowncountry.com/diary/objective-love
Having conversation and contact with loved ones that have passed on in my life has run in my family. It’s just something that many of us that have the visitor experience have the ability to do. Perhaps the Visitors are attracted to us for this reason. We are vastly self-aware and connected with spirit.
But there’s always skepticism one retains about these matters. Is it real or just my spirit comforting itself?
Only once did I have an absolute regarding this skepticism. There was no possible way I was comforting myself and fantasizing. I wrote about it in”But Something is There.” Without repeating the story here, all I can tell you is that it was real.
Moving back to the whole point of this writing, when we got back to the condo I had this overwhelming sense and presence of Anne. It wasn’t as if she used words when communicating with me, but the best I can do is put it into words.
“Keep an eye on Whitley. Talk to him. Love your friend and stay by him”. The words can’t begin to express the loving feeling I had. There just aren’t words to describe the things we experience in existence because our souls have never been word based. That is something we use to communicate in the physical world which is only a small but important part of our immense existence.
Still I wondered was it real?
Yesterday I had lunch with Whitley and he told me about an agreement he had with Anne should one of them ever pass first. That was that whoever passed first would contact their friends. Not each other. This way when friends started reporting contact the other would know it was real. That there wouldn’t be the doubt we all have when these things occur. This is exactly what happened to Whitley. Friends and family almost at once started reporting communication with Anne.
He never told me this until yesterday and I immediately remembered Anne’s message. I knew then it was real. I never told Whitley because I couldn’t be sure, but I did last night. I felt a great deal of emotion from it. It was so moving. It was a relief.
Thank you Anne, it meant so much to me that you reached out in this way, enriched my life, and my connection with all spirit.
