Delightfully witnessing Michael, Kelly and Diesel's spirits coming through again last Wednesday evening. With encouraging and uplifting messages as always. The mention of feathers, new endeavours, and loving support very much appreciated. One detail not initially resonating was the medium's mention of Mike showing her pennies. Then going on to say it seemed that I had been recently finding pennies in the oddest places, and picking them up. After the session, mentioning to her that it was not something I had been experiencing, but that there was a connection. Sharing with her what had transpired within a short time of the accident last year. Early that fateful Monday morning, a close family member getting out of bed. Stepping into the hall and hearing the unexpected sound of coins falling in the den. Walking over to investigate and discovering pennies spinning on the floor. Quite unsure of what to make of it. Particularly since his wife, the only other person in the house, was not yet awake. Making a connection after hearing the news. This past Thursday morning, this same relative unexpectedly stopping by my home. Something he had never done before. Conversation eventually turning to the happenings of the previous evening. Describing the session to him, along with the confusing message regarding pennies. Seeing the look of surprise on his face. Listening to his words tumbling out. Sharing that for the past few weeks he had suddenly started finding pennies in unexpected locations. Thinking of them as his lucky pennies, and therefore taking the time to pick them up. Good luck in his life being a little scarce of late. A few hours after saying our goodbyes, finding himself out at the driving range with one of Mike's best friends. Practising their golf swings for the upcoming tournament. Calling me to say that it had just happened again. While walking over to consult the swing guide, spotting a penny lying there on the windowsill. All of this leaving me filled with such gratitude. For receiving the message in the first place, and then being able to pass it on. Resulting in reassurance to someone he loved. Reminding me that messages from spirit may not always be fully understood in the moment. Trusting that they reveal themselves in time. All unfolding as it should.
Footnote: That same Thursday afternoon, the 2012 Federal Budget announcing the elimination of our penny beginning later this year. Front page headline in Friday's local paper reading "Pinching Pennies."
