Enjoying a glass of wine in these waning moments of this summer solstice evening. Alone with lights dimmed. Cherishing the warm glow of a beautifully decorated candle. One covered in a delicate swirling pattern of sage and coral. Sitting here reflecting on the moving events at the ISA tonight. Receiving a message from my son. Him describing a forest scene with sun shining through the trees. Exactly where I had been running this morning. Making reference to our communication there. Something we always engage in. Expressing his joy in being able to stay connected. Passing on encouragement. Knowing I need it. My mother coming through as well. Later, taking my turn up on the platform. Practising mediumship. Bringing a message through for someone else in the audience. Thankful to be learning to serve in this way. Then upon leaving, speaking to a woman whom I had never met. Learning she is also living with the experience of losing a child. Finding great comfort in our conversation. Both of us wondering aloud what this journey would look like without the spiritual awareness. Agreeing it would likely be very grim indeed. Instead, so grateful to know what we know.
