I tuned in to energies around people, animals and plants. I was a very sensitive, emotional child.
At age 12, I came home from a piano lesson professing my concern about my piano teacher because his “colors were dark and stormy and breaking apart all around his body.” My piano teacher died before my next lesson. When I went to his wake, I saw him floating near the ceiling looking happy and healthy. Then I felt myself shoot out of my body, floating up next to him for a moment to say goodbye.
At age 14, one night Mom came to awaken me with the news that my beloved Granddad (her father) had passed suddenly and unexpectedly. He was only 56 years old and seemingly healthy. Mom was surprised to find me sitting up awake and crying. Before she could give me the news, I told said “I know: Granddad is dead.” I knew because he had just come by to see me. He wanted to let me know God had called him home and that everything would be all right. To this day, I cherish the occasional visits with my Granddad from heaven.
I wanted to live a “normal life”
I was in the closet as a medium until a near death experience in 2007.
For years–I built a successful career as a university administrator and later as a corporate human resources manager for a $5 billion company. My husband & I had a thriving small business. I earned degrees and certifications. I secretly studied psychic development and did readings for friends.
Sometimes the universe gives us a wake-up call.
My near death experience (NDE) was brief but life changing. My NDE happened during an allergic reaction called anaphylaxis. As my throat closed off, my soul self stepped out of my body.
Outside my body, I watched the medical professionals working on me like they moved in slow motion. I noticed they looked shiny and 1 dimensional. I felt very peaceful. I felt protective arms enfold me. I heard the most amazing music that seemed to come in waves like thousands of spiritual voices singing a symphony of love. I was part of the light and thrilled with the discovery–My deceased Granddad was in the light with me. Before I could talk to him…
I heard another voice say: “Your work has not started.” I felt rudely vacuumed back into my body–Painful, crushing chest and burning throat. In the ambulance and at the hospital, I felt very depressed. Why couldn’t I keep going into that heavenly place? And then it dawned on me…I had been given a second chance. More challenges and epiphanies were yet to unfold…Which I will write about in my book.
