One never knows when Spirit(s) will show up to bring joy, happiness and laughter. Stay open to it.
I answered the phone to find that it was a potential client wanting to schedule an appointment Saturday (today). I said it was Gala Day and she might pick another Saturday. She sounded distressed because she couldn’t find her engagement ring. I said, ‘You called the right person.’ I love looking for lost items. I first saw what looked like a Navy sailor dressed in blues with the white hat (Dixie cup). I asked if she took a trip overseas. Turned out, I described one of the crew on the cruise ship. I looked a little deeper and saw a brown dresser with knobs. She said she would look again. One hour later she called to say she found the ring in a brown dresser with rings that look like knobs. Exciting news! Once off the phone, I said, ‘Thank you, Spirit.’
One of my neighbor’s and I have been comparing notes to sounds that go bump in the night. She called to ask if the people above me, which would be next to her, were in town. They were not. She continued that it sounded like a bunch of people talking and going into the apartment. As she said this, I had a vision of a group of ladies with Victorian style garb chatting away. I shared with another neighbor down the road, and we decided they were getting ready for Gala Day. Love that, Spirit!
I was taking a drive with a friend, and we were talking about how things are getting back to normal for me after a small surgical procedure. I planned on joining a new gym when I got the go-ahead. I said, ‘Just because they said I can workout Monday, doesn’t mean that I have to.’
Friend: ‘Who are you? I can’t believe you just that. I’m gonna crash my car.’
Thank you, Spirit!
‘You are not going to believe this’ was my go-to line when something big happened that was out of the ordinary. A smile would crossover my bestie’s face that would tell me, ‘Oh yes, yes I will.’
The other night I was sleeping in my Harmony Hall backroom at Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. It had to be about midnight. I distinctly heard footsteps in the apartment above me. It was odd because the people who rent the space are generally only there on the weekends. I sent a text to one person to see if the women were still here. That person didn’t know, so I sent another text to one of the renters. No response. I turned my air conditioner on, so I could no longer hear it.
The next morning, bright and early, I got a response from the text. ‘No.’ I called my neighbor pronto and shared my story. She said there had been some activity in her place – historic tour guide pins missing and the blinds in the bathroom were always different from when they left. One time the blinds were pulled totally to the top. Could this be Spirit activity? Now mind you I have had plenty in my place.
Backstory: Several times items have disappeared from my place – a high-heeled shoe and fire extinguisher to name a couple. Months later both items came back. With the latter, one of the maintenance men refused to come back to my place for six months. It freaked him out so. My crystals and candles on my dresser top are consistently on the move. And one time a Spirit touched my back. I said, ‘Get out.’ You gotta draw the line somewhere. No touching.
While sharing my story with the neighbor, I recalled hearing footsteps on other occasions. I decided to take the information to the office. After some discussion, it was decided upon – wait for it – that I call 911 the next time I heard footsteps above me. I rolled with laughter.
Can you imagine a psychic medium in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, which has had mediums in its space since 1894, calling the police to report possible phenomena? LOL. They’d be laughing for years to come, as would I.
Hope this gave you a chuckle this fine day!
Many Blessings of Peace, Love and Laughter!
