I have been to many events and lectures. Whether it was James Van Praagh, John Holland, Doreen Virtue or Sylvia Browne. Each event, they walk you through a bit of a guided meditation. Often being able to raise the vibration of the room and give you a more upbeat and relaxed feeling.
Some of the meditations have involved meeting my guide for the first time, located at a waterfall. I had known what he looked like and communicated with him before, but this actually felt like we were standing face to face and being able to hug him and thank him for the help on this journey was an amazing feeling.
The one that will really stand out to me for the rest of my life, is an Event that James Van Praagh had put on. It was in Richmond and was 6 months after my mom had crossed over.
He had us sit there with our eyes closed, palms facing up. This is what he told us to visualize:
You see yourself walking through the forest on a path. The path can be rocks, cobblestone, or even dirt. Seeing the path marked with flowers or rocks, and you walk through these large trees. Looking up you can see that they feel the sky as if your in a canopy of them. Lush and green. You continuing walking and finding this so peaceful. As you get further in, you notice its getting thinner further ahead, more light coming through and it opens up into this beautiful little area with a large fountain. There are seats around it and as you walk closer you notice that they are made out of marble. The seats are white with this intricate design going through. You reach down and you touch the seat. It’s cool to the touch and feels good against your skin. You turn around and sit down on this bench and look up. In front of you, is now your loved one who has crossed over..
Imagine my surprise, when there in front of me, stood my mom. She had on a white shirt, with some sort of picture on the front (likely a cat or similar). Black pants, and her black purse was hung over her right shoulder. She looked at me with tears in her eyes, I could feel how much she missed me. I cried (not just in the meditation, but real tears! Just like I am right now as I write this experience!) I stand up, and we move together and I hug her. I can feel her again and it’s so nice.
I can hear other people at this event crying too. It doesn’t last long before he brings everyone back to the room with getting us to open our eyes. I look to my right, the woman is crying, wiping her tears. I look to the left, my sister as well is crying.
I know how to tune into my psychic abilities, but I still have that side like we all do, questioning “is this real”? Later that night, without saying to my sister what I had seen, I asked her if she had seen mom. She said yes. I asked her “what was mom wearing when you seen her?” My sister described the EXACT same outfit that I had seen. Down to every little detail.
