After having been to see a psychic medium earlier this year, I have had my eyes opened. I have always believed in spirits, having had quite a few experiences myself, and the feeling of almost never being quite alone.
But when I went to see June, it was in a large group environment, and to be quite honest, I had never been to see anyone like her before, I didn't know quite what to expect, but really, if I'm honest, I thought she'd be all vague generalities that could apply to anyone, but boy did she blow my mind!!
She told me specifics, that not many people know. She knew things she couldn't possibly have known, she homed in on me. I was away at the back out of the way too. And she told me that I was surrounded by spirits who were looking out for me, she'd never seen so many surrounding one person. She said I had more people caring for me from the afterlife than in the living.
Needless to say, I was pretty surprised. Not shocked, just pleasantly surprised.
When My Nana came through, to say specifically that she wasn't looking out for me, I had to laugh. She was a twisted old bird, and we didn't get on to say the least. lol. But others the psychic described were so dear to my heart. My great Grandfather. A phenomenal pipe player, craftsman, Traveller, I have missed him so much. But I know for sure now, he's with me.
My grandfather, I get my hair, temper and obsession with boxes from him. lol. I met him, many years after he had passed, along with his dog. While out walking my Nana's dog. A peaceful experience. Reassuring.
My cousin, who committed suicide. That was an emotional revelation. But still reassuring.
So, this Samhain, I made a special effort through all the general malaise and apathy I have been feeling of late, and made a special ancestors altar to honour them all. It's the least I can do if they're looking out for me. My offerings were cheese scones, and malt whisky. Since our family, are especially keen on the old malt. Flowers, and special candles. I hope they like it. I found beautiful old hand made bowls at the market, as I know many of them like handmade things, and used to make the most beautiful things, including horse carts and baskets.
This is my lovely Fiance's "awesome face" pumpkin. Isn't it funky?! He's such a geek.
And for Little D, a creeper pumpkin! They're creepy monsters from a game called Minecraft that he's obsessed with. He was thrilled to come down in the morning and see what daddy had made.
The general apathy and ill health is really bugging me now. I have so much to enjoy, and so much to do, I need to get it sorted out. So trips to the doctor will be upcoming, I hate to have to do it, but I must.
Right, off to try and motivate myself to do some more cleaning and reorganising. Have a ton of washing to catch up on as usual. lol.
Hope you all have a fabulous Halloween/Samhain!
