I've decided to this note because sadly I have witnessed a lot of deaths of pedestrians which are often all too common in South Africa.
Once a pedestrian has died, the soul is in shock and confused, so they reach out to nearby mediums as a source of comfort until they realise what has happened for them, till they are comforted by their guides and loved ones on the other side.
I guess that I wanted to use this inspirational image as it reminded me of days through the woods that I have taken. The bench being a restful spot for those who have become weary on their journey and need to rest as in all of our daily lives.
As a young medium, I couldn’t understand why souls unknown to me would want to reach out to me for assistance in a time like this. I asked my teacher about this and she explained that mediums have a sort of "light" that shines above their heads that attracts these types of souls.
Sadly, there isn’t much that I can do for these souls especially when I am driving and travelling. Nevertheless, if I’m not busy then I can let them know where to look for their departed loved ones who are waiting for them and try to comfort them. Although, if they do realise that I can’t help them then they often leave me alone.
What are “untimely deaths”? For me, I consider that these are accidents, cot deaths, short illnesses, drug overdoses and suicides with psychiatric patients. I am sure that you’d agree with me that so often it is the impact that hits hard on their loved ones who have to stay behind and deal with these feelings of grief and loss because of the unexpected nature that this has happened.
And this reminds me of a time that I attended a funeral service of a friend that had committed suicide. You might be surprised to hear that he was all over the shop. One moment he was in the gallery, then at the organ and in between all the congregation. Was he sad? No he was as happy as he could be. I think that it was fortunate for the other people that I was the only once that could see his fun and games or he might have brought the ‘house’ or should that be church down with his own funeral.
Many of you will have heard me speak about the Master Plan before but it is always good to revisit this. In conjunction with our guides and other spirits, we’ve planned ahead in detail our own lives and earth paths which include the following:
So where does that leave us? I think that our lives are very much the same as the inspirational image and the different choices and pathways that we take and follow. The things that we need to learn even if we don’t want to learn. How many times have you taken a pathway and that you seem to end up back at the point you could have been had you taken a different choice? It is that master plan in action....do you choose the wooded scenic route? Take a rest or just get going and get there?
One thing that I do know is that one the choice has been made and the life lesson learned then it is the end of that pathway and time to move on to the next one.
Enjoy your journey but as a pedestrian cross safely please!
