Spirit Story: Part 1

 

As promised, here’s a spirit story from our past year. There are many, so I’m going to start with the first one.

(Some context: Dudley had already had the small stroke with no aftereffects in July 2016, but had not yet had the severe stroke, which happened in October.)

One night in September 2016, I had a strong feeling that Leon wanted to communicate with Dudley. (I’ve never had this impression before, even though Dudley and Leon respect one another and Dudley did see Leon once, right after we started going out.)

Dudley was on his way to bed but I convinced him to sit down in the living room with me while I lit a candle and let Leon know we were listening. After about 10 minutes of waiting, we heard nothing (thought I felt Leon’s presence) so I thanked Leon for his help with the house and Dudley went up to bed.

The next morning, Dudley, who always got up before me, came upstairs as soon as I got out of bed. He asked if I had heard anything the night before. I told him I had not. He said that his mom, who had passed away a year or two earlier, had called his name in the night, and that her voice had the strength and volume that it did when she was young. Her voice was so clear and strong that he sat up in bed, fully expecting to see his mom in the hallway. But he saw nothing.

The other really cool aspect of the experience was that for the first time in many years, Dudley woke up with no aches and pains. We hoped that the healing effect was permanent ~ it wasn’t ~ but it did last for several days after his mom’s visit.

Later that day, we realized that it was either his mom’s birthday or his sister’s birthday. (Their birthdays are one day apart.) I wrote a note to myself about the visit, but didn’t write the date ~ I wish I had done so, but maybe it doesn’t matter, as the help and support we’ve gotten over the past year from both Dudley’s mom and his sister ~ foreshadowed in dreams and confirmed in spirit visits ~ have been invaluable.

I’ll continue this story in another post.
