This is a quickie post. Last night I was visited in a “dream” by a lovely guy I used to work with at Sony Pictures Entertainment who left this realm way too young. (From my human perspective…not his soul’s perspective.) I wish I could recall the dream, but it’s already just a glimmer in my memory. At work yesterday, I had a quick “drive by visitation” by the brother of a friend of mine that included a simple but nice message. Last week, I had another quick visitation by a young gal who was recently killed in a car accident while I took my lunchtime walk at work. She also gave me a brief message to pass along. I seem to be having increasing numbers of visitations by people on the Other Side lately and I don’t know what’s triggering it. Is anyone else having more encounters with family and friends on the Other Side? I don’t know if the veil is suddenly getting even thinner, or what? I’d love to hear your feedback and/or stories. One friend said she was awakened this morning by a loved one in spirit hugging her and smiling.
Within days of my aunt passing away from horrid ALS 2 years ago, I was in traffic (on 5/8/2010) and looked over to see this white Toyota Camry with the license plate LUV PAT. The car also had a bumper sticker that said I BRAKE FOR CATS. When I saw the license plate and then bumper sticker, I was filled with strong tingling, which is my way of knowing someone in spirit is around and trying to get my attention. My aunt’s name was Pat and there was no doubt that she included the bumper sticker due to my love of cats just to let me know it was really her saying “Hello!” It was her way of letting me know that I should tell her loved ones that she was alive and well on the Other Side.
Jump forward 2 years to 5/24/2012…this past Thursday afternoon. My parents were visiting New Mexico for the first time from New York, and I had them in the car with me doing some sight-seeing on their last full day in Albuquerque. Anyway, dad needed to buy something and I remembered that there was a Wal-Mart on Carlisle (not one I would normally go to due to the location and where I live now) so I whipped into the parking lot, we hurried through the store grabbing a few things we needed, got back in the car, and hurried home (I had time constraints due to a college class that night). As we were leaving Wal-Mart and heading toward Carlisle, from nowhere that same white Toyota Camry with LUV PAT zoomed by me! Keep in mind that the metro Albuquerque area now has over 800,000 people and that the odds of seeing that woman’s car again were slim. What makes this extra important was that aunt Pat was the sister of my father, who was in the car with me and saw the Camry. Aunt Pat was trying to say “Hello!” to her brother, my father! I felt tingling again when I saw the car. I gunned my car to catch up and the older woman driver was right next to us. Soon after we both pulled onto Carlisle, she zoomed off and got through a traffic light I wasn’t able to make and was gone. But, this woman, who I’m sure had no idea she served as a messenger for Pat…did something very important TWICE.
Pay attention to what you notice. I was taught long ago that what we notice is not an accident. There are millions of things every day you don’t notice because they are insignificant. But, spirit often causes things to catch our eye in order to give us messages. Stay open. You see things for a reason. I’m smiling now knowing not only that Pat is happy and well on the Other Side, but that magick (the K is intentional) happens.
I decided to have another “psychic day” today and although nothing major happened, a confirmation happened that was important. I’ve been applying for other jobs at the same company I’m at now. There has been one that I’ve been the most excited about as it would be a clear step up and “hopefully” more money (I say “hopefully” because I am currently in a union and this higher level job is not in the union and sometimes you actually don’t end up making more money when you leave the union). Well, I interviewed for that job early yesterday and then another job later in the day that would be a lateral move for me, but in a creative department that reminded me almost of my days working in television in Los Angeles (which I miss). My gut didn’t feel good about the higher level job for some reason (the people were very nice) but felt really good about the lower level job. Of course, my head mostly cares about money. 🙂 I swore years ago when I made a HORRID decision based on my head instead of gut that I would NEVER EVER do that again…yet here I was, still thinking I wanted the higher level job my gut didn’t feel right about. I got an offer on the creative job early today. Then I was in a quandary. What if I got offers on both jobs?! What would I do?! Just before 5 p.m. I got a call regarding the higher level non union job to tell me that I didn’t make it to the next round…and I felt relief. I felt palpable relief in my stomach. I mean, I’m letdown I didn’t make it to the next round of interviews, but I now realize something about that job was wrong for me. So, I’m accepting the creative job and looking forward to what the universe has in store for me. I no longer try to beat down doors. I go through doors that open to me that feel good.
On another note, this story, which some of you may have already seen, is beautiful confirmation that love continues on from the Other Side…and that yes…animals are included in our love. A heavenly beam of light shines on a dog that a soldier helped save just before the soldier was killed.
