The Mysterious Realm of Communication
My most recent evening at the ISA included a relaxing guided meditation, as well as a heartfelt message from my paternal grandfather, in German, of course. About family, about love. He spoke directly to me, no medium required, about the parent-child relationship and the various ways it has played out within our family over these past four generations. Even though this man had died long before I was born, I instantly recognized his spirit and felt a deep connection as he shared his observations. The ISA evening ended about a half-hour later than usual, and when I got in my car, the clock read 9:55. After these sessions, I am usually home around 10 o'clock, and since it's about a thirty minute drive, I contemplated calling my husband to tell him not to wait up. Then I thought about how exhausted he was and the strong possibly of him being asleep, so I decided against it. When I arrived home, he was surprisingly still awake, and before I had a chance to tell him about my evening he told me about a strange incident that had occurred. He had been watching TV in the den when he heard a beeping sound coming from elsewhere in the house. As he approached the living room, he realized that the alarm was ringing on the clock in there. We don't use the alarm feature and it had never spontaneously gone off - it had not even been touched recently. He went on to say that it had happened at 9:55. Obviously that had no significance for him until I explained what I had been doing at exactly that time. For me, this was yet another new experience in the mysterious realm of communication. Fascinating, for sure.
