I love how we are all connected, whether someone is still living on this earth or has transitioned to the other side. I had two experiences this week that prove this truth.
My grandmother died 42 years ago this week. I loved my grandmother and she supported me all through my life. I wouldn’t be who I am today without her love and affection. She nicknamed me “Angel” and I called her gram. In her eyes, I could do no wrong. I spent a lot of time at her house and loved sitting and having a cup of tea with her. She always had “time” for me and listened to whatever I was going through.
I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t get back to sleep. I pray when I can’t sleep. I’m not sure if I had a dream about gram or not, but I remembered that the anniversary of her death was this week.
I will be 75 years young in October. As I was thinking about gram, I wasn’t sure if she was 75 years old when she died. I thought, “Oh my goodness, gram was old!” I didn’t see myself old like she was. It kind of felt like a little wake-up call.
Something about almost being her age when she died was getting my attention. Was it an invitation to enjoy my life even more than I am, to let go of what no longer serves me because we are not promised tomorrow? All I have is this NOW moment. I have an affirmation that I say every day. “I am worthy and deserving to enjoy “my amazing life” that I have co-created with God. It is flowing with love, peace, joy, happiness, abundance, and radiant health.
I decided to text my cousin, Doreen, in the morning to confirm gram’s age. I immediately received a telephone call from Doreen saying, “OMG, I don’t believe it. You have been on my mind and I just finished writing you a card. I was recently cleaning out some things and found 2 of gram’s prayer cards when she died. I haven’t seen those cards in 42 years. I am sending one to you.”
I received the prayer card a few days later. Here is what it said:
Deep waters cannot quench LOVE, nor floods sweep it away. I allowed myself to feel the love in my heart and to know gram was still there loving and supporting me.
Here is another example of knowing we are all connected:
A few nights later, I was awake again and thought about a friend who I have shared about in past blogs. After a 30 year friendship, she didn’t want to be friends anymore. I felt hurt, rejected, and abandoned. I had to grieve the loss of my friend and accept and forgive if I were to have peace in my life.
I was very pleased when Spirit bought her to mind in the middle of the night and I had no triggers or ill feelings toward her. In the past, I had hoped that she would see the “light” and want to be friends again. I felt only love and peace for her.
The next morning when I opened my phone I received a text message from her saying, “I have been thinking about you and wanted to see how you and Larry were doing.” We are connected in the mind of God.
I sent a message back and thanked her for her love and for the memories and special times we had together. I had done my grief work and had forgiven her because I felt complete and healed.
