The veil is thinning

I try to remind myself of this as I glide through my day.  A shadow grabs my attention and I try to catch a glimpse of what or who it might be.  Then I catch myself.  If this happens and I’m out in public, I don’t want to look like a fool.  If I am at home or out in my yard, I watch, and talk.  “Who are you?  Can I help you?”  Sometimes I whisper, sometimes I talk in a normal tone. 

They don’t scare me.  They never have.  Only once have I been startled by one and that was only because they came too close.

Sometimes they are intelligent spirits, ones that know that they have passed on and are just back for a visit.  Other times they are just a bit of residual energy, and I’m just at the right time of day, during the right time of weather, and they receive just enough spark of energy to reveal a moment from their life.

Some of the strangest ones are the ones who are still living but leave imprints behind because of trauma, heartache, fear, etc.  They are the ones that I have a hard time reading. 

I had an experience a couple times that involved my husband.  I saw a flash of his life before we met.  Driving down a road that was a road that he would normally have driven, but not one that I would have.  Suddenly I am driving his car and a certain song came on the radio.  I felt his emotions, I saw his thoughts, I knew where he was going.  I called him and asked him about this.  He confirmed the entire scene.  That was my first experience with the living impression. 

Made me wish I had taken notes all my life on all the impressions I walked through and to be able to go back and see if I could confirm if they were living or dead. 

I know, it’s not that easy.  I don’t have names, just pictures in my mind.  Some are still as vivid today as they were when I first saw them.  Others have gone on with the memory.

So as the wheel turns and Samhain is right around the corner, I’ve been visited more often.  A whisper that I cannot make out, a smell of something out of the ordinary, a quick flash out of the corner of my eye, or a dark shadow lingering.  They don’t scare me, not even the dark shadows, it’s just how they are able to appear to me. 

Two times this past week my husband and I have heard loud crashes or door slams in our tiny house.  A quick inspections shows that there is nothing wrong.  The house is so small that you really couldn’t miss another person within. 

“Hello!”  I call out knowing that I may not get an answer.  I just want to let them know that I know they are here if they want to visit.  My husband laughs and shakes his head.  He knows what I feel and see, he’s been there for some of them.  He’s also now experiencing some with me. 

He wasn’t exactly a non-believer before we met, thankfully, he had an opened mind.  I had told him, life with me can be strange at times. 

And I have opened my abilities up to a couple in town.  Their son had passed on nearly two years ago now.  For some reason, he talks to me.  Sometimes often.  I have to block him at times.

After sitting with his parents and telling them about the first time he yelled at me and how he wouldn’t leave me alone until I went to them and tell them his message, and giving them details of a private conversation the two of them had alone in the cemetery, they were amazed.  They believe what I have to say.

Although it makes me feel better, I don’t want our relationship to be only about the messages I receive from him.  So, I block him.  He knows how to break the block if it is important that I speak to them, but he’s learning his boundaries.


But the veil is thinning and my blocks are not always working.  I shall open my journal and let down my blockages and enjoy the visits.
