I just got back from a week at the beach with a house full of family. Sometimes I feel bad about rarely getting to see my relatives, so it feels good to get the tribe together—especially for a week of fun in the sun.
One night, when we were all talking for hours, one of my family members (I’ll call her Olivia) described what happened years ago when she was spending a holiday at her in-laws. Waking up in the middle of the night, she looked into the hallway to see an older woman in a long nightgown facing the door to another room. She saw the woman very clearly—especially noting a long ponytail of gray and white hair down her back.
The next day Olivia described what she saw to everyone gathered at the house. The family agreed the description sounded very much like her husband’s grandmother, who had passed away years before Olivia and her husband had met. The grandmother had had long hair that she gathered into a bun at the back of her head.
Then another family member asked the grandmother directly, “If you were here last night, show us a sign.” A few minutes later, a family picture fell off the wall. (Loved ones on the other side love to move pictures—I wrote about it here.)
The doorway the grandmother was facing in the middle of the night was where Olivia’s baby was sleeping. To me, it’s clear the grandmother wanted Olivia to know she knew about her great-granddaughter and was watching over her.
When I took a week-long mediumship course back in May, I was blown away every day by all my relatives who showed up every time another student practiced reading me. It was like they came through in an instant. But it’s not like they did super-sonic travel from the other side—
they (including our animals) are already there and are excited because finally someone is opening up to connect.
When I was at the beach, I kept seeing my grandmother’s house number (her sign to me)—on my app-game score, on the clock, etc., so I know she was psyched to be on vacation with us.
We’re all made of energy and energy connects us all. Even when we’re feeling alone, the reality is our tribe is always around us. And those family gatherings? More may join in on the fun than we originally planned on, but they bring nothing but love and support to the party.
It’s all about the magic. 🙌
