FROM THE ETHERS
Spirit has now taken my phone charger. It’s always in the same place. I woke up and it’s gone. Nowhere to be found. My office isn’t that big. You can’t really lose anything here. This could be considered an apport, which is the transference of an article from one place to another, or an appearance of an article from an unknown source.
So, I called my longtime friend in La Crosse, Wis. She’s been to the Spiritualist Camp, so she knows what happens here. Our conversation goes: ‘Spirit took my charger.’ We laugh for a few minutes and then she says, ‘Are you sure you didn’t sleepwalk and do something with it.’ I thought about it for second. We howled. The good news was my daughter, Sydney, got the intuitive hit and brought along her extra car phone charger (really mine) the next day when we met up.
Then I proceeded to tell my longtime friend about my black heeled shoe that went missing in late October. It was a Wednesday and I was turning in for the night when I spied my two black heeled shoes near my bed. I nudged them in slightly so as not to trip on them if I awakened in the middle of the night. That Sunday I was speaking at an Orlando church. I went to get my shoes and one of them was gone. I looked under that bed at least 10 times – thinking it would appear each time. Finally, I looked everywhere even though I had just seen it. In a pinch, I decided to wear my black flip fops with bling. Later, I went shopping for more shoes. Another one of my friends in the Spiritualist Camp thought the shoe was caught up in the bottom of the bed somehow. I thought this to be ridiculous, and it was and still is. Two months later, a day after my birthday, I got up to go to the gym. I couldn’t find one of my tennis shoes. The one remaining was pointed toward the bed, so I looked under there. Lo and behold my black heeled shoe returned. Remember, I looked under that bed at least 10 times. There is no way I would’ve missed it. When the shoe returned, it was in a completely different place. I believe the real reason this happened was because I had a procedure about six weeks before the shoe went missing. I never should’ve been wearing those shoes in the first place. Spirit knows best.
And finally the best one. The fire extinguishers get tested once yearly in Camp owned properties. I moved into my office and sometimes sleeping place in October of 2017. My extinguisher got tested then. It was hanging on the wall in the kitchen. A year later I was to put it outside the door. I couldn’t find it. One of the maintenance workers came inside to help me. We looked in the kitchen first. Nothing. Now, we looked everywhere. Couldn’t find it. He said he’d get me a new one. A few days later I saw the new one on the porch, so I brought it in. I set it in the kitchen and when I turned around the extinguisher was hanging on the wall. I was like OMG. I called the maintenance worker and told him where it was. He agreed that we would’ve never missed that. My longtime friend and I laughed and laughed. And then I told her the maintenance worker refused to come into my place for months. LOL When he finally did, all he could do was shake his head in disbelief. Could’ve been my dad, a fireman with a great sense of humor.
Guess what folks – this happens everywhere. People are so busy they just aren’t aware. Spirit lives. My longtime friend is visiting soon. Hope more things happen when she’s here. Good times!
