My boyfriend Andrew's grandmother is on the other side, but she is responsible in a sense for us meeting each other, and has given us confirmation that our relationship was destined. You see, my boyfriend and I are 18 years and eleven months apart in age, which neither of us wanted, much less wanting to break that news to family members.
My story starts with an astrology class that I was teaching in a local metaphysical shop named "Catalpa Tree" up here in Indiana. It was the fall of 2013, and I had just moved here recently from Atlanta. The manager of the shop told me that a gentleman had some questions about astrology charts and was thinking about taking a couple classes. I was a little worried, because psychically I had a sense that there was going to be a man in class who would be difficult, and the Holy Spirit told me to study up on some "way out there" concepts, because he may challenge me in class. It turned out Andrew, was the man with the astrology question, but it was another gentleman who was the difficult person. I didn't really notice Andrew that day, or in the other classes, as I was focused on teaching, and was not looking for or wanting a boyfriend. I didn't even "notice" him when he invited me to lunch to look at his astrology chart. I remember him asking about his marriage, and I tried to be positive, pointing out they were both Libras etc. The next time I saw him in class, he told me he had just asked for a divorce, and had moved out. It was a good month and a half later after a class, that I actually noticed Andrew, (although it was at the back of my mind and ignored) and realized we had a connection. We became involved about three weeks later, but neither of us was taking it seriously. We both felt like the other was our "Twin Flame" see my blog on Twin Flames, so needless to say, it somehow got serious.
It was late at night, a few months later, that an older woman came to me from the other side. Andrew was reading a book, and I told him there was a woman with curly brown hair that had a slight coppery quality wanting to talk with me. I thought her eyes were green. She confirmed she was Andrew's grandmother on his mother's side. She said the name "Earl", which I thought I had heard wrong, because I had a classmate from high school named Earl visit me earlier that week. What was odd was that Earl and I never talked or hung out in high school, but he carved out time to visit me while he was here. A few days after Earl's visit, a client was telling me an involved story about a man named Earl. I remarked that that was two Earls in one week (I know of no other Earls in my life). Now, Andrew's grandmother was saying the name "Earl". Andrew explained that it was her husband's middle name. Funny that she chose that name to confirm herself to me. It is always a crazy synchronicity like that. She gave a lot of information about herself, a lot of which I cannot remember, but she did say that I had helped Andrew onto a better path than the one he was going to take. One thing in particular stands out in my memory from our conversation. She kept saying over and over, "He is my son. I'm proud of my son", and "That's my son" (pointing to him). I asked Andrew what this meant. He said that she had always thought of him as her son. I said, "Yes, but I'm getting the sense from her that she means you were her actual son in another life."
A few days later, I was invited to a family Easter party on Andrew's mother's side of the family. There on the wall was a photo of Andrew and his grandmother. She was definitely the person I saw and spoke with a few nights earlier. When we got home from the party, Andrew suddenly remembered reading some notes of his grandmother's that she had taken while getting a psychic reading. The psychic had told her that Andrew had been her son in a past life. She also told her that after she died, it would be very easy for her to talk with Andrew! "He is my son." Grandma was trying to jog Andrew's memories of her notes to confirm her identity to him. She was also saying in a way, that he and I were meant to be together, as I was the means for him to speak with her after she passed, just as the psychic had predicted.
Note: I was told by the owner of Catalpa Tree Shop that Andrew's grandmother was the very first customer to walk through their doors when it opened 27 years ago. It seems fitting that this is where Andrew and I met.
Do you notice any synchronicities in your life connected to loved ones who have passed on?
(Warning: This article may contain beliefs that will be threatening not only to one's ego, but disturbing to one's viewpoint, and so therefore I ask for an open mind, as I do not ever write anything without extensive experience, decades of study, deep contemplation, and having gone through this loss with a boyfriend and friends.) To answer this question, one must first define hell, the "other side", what is going on there, and if hell actually exists outside the ego mind belief. When we cross over (taking into consideration a belief in reincarnation here), the "Other Side" is exactly what we expect it to be. I mean that statement as literal. Having said that, exactly who are these beings on the other side who control everything and "teach" us - helping us to "progress"? By "these beings" I refer to the so-called guides who help souls progress from different levels, mentioned by various authors, such as Michael Newton and Sylvia Browne. Who are these beings? For myself, I believe they are beings that perpetrate themselves as either "of the light" or "of the dark", to keep this whole unnecessary cycle of reincarnating continuing ad nauseam. I personally do not trust anything that tries to teach me how to be a lightworker, or an accomplish of the dark. I no longer participate in the game of light against dark, as it is only just that - a game, and the only way to escape it is to forgive this world, this cosmos and the other side as the holographic illusion that it really is. Sylvia Browne did hit on one part of it when she said there was a final stage you get to where the soul goes back to God. The problem is these "beings" create the temptation of staying in the reincarnation cycle, by urging us to review our lives and correct our "mistakes", but how many mistakes can actually be made in an illusion?
So, what happens, then if someone commits suicide? Depending on the individual's belief, they will go to a perception that lives out what they think their soul corresponds to - this light or dark side. So, if a person commits suicide, because they want to make other's pay for hurting them, they may be aligning themselves with a dark agenda and go to a place of imagined suffering. Remember its all a holographic perception, even over there. If they took their life because they were worn out and could not go on, or other non-vindictive reasons, they cross over, heal and recover. When I ask where the soul is, the spiritual heirarchy or lightworker perpetrators may tell me the individual is making a choice to accept self-love and then they can fully cross over, but I know this is merely the asking of the individual to choose light or dark. Essentially, they are not being taught real love, in which there is no separation between souls, but are tricked (as we are here) of continuing the idea that we are all separate ego personalities with different destinies. The choice for the soul, then is where they want to visit on that side. Hell-like or heaven-like? So, it is no different for a suicide or anyone else crossing over where they end up - its a self-perception choice.
This may seem disturbing to you reading this, who have lost loved ones to suicide or by other means. Believing that everything happening on the other side is a game can seem hopeless, but it truly is just an extension of what goes on here on Earth. An endless cycle of birth and death is unnecessary, because there is a true Heaven. This is oneness with God, the choice to return to God, giving up the unreal creations of the ego-self, and thereby exiting the reincarnation cycle altogether.
Similar explanations to this can be seen from a variety of perspectives, such as David Icke's belief in an alien Reptilian matrix universe that we are caught in, but whatever the belief, the common ground here is that this universe is a hologram, does not exist, and the ultimate spiritual goal is to traverse it. Suicides, in my opinion, and in my experience of contacting them after death, are the same as regular deaths. They do not reincarnate back immediately through a revolving door, as some suggest, unless they actually choose that. They are not punished or treated any differently other than how they believe that they should suffer or be rewarded.
This article requires some study to understand the deeper concepts I am suggesting here. Please feel free to share your comments.
Jowls, eye bags, drooping eyelids, turkey neck anyone? The Galvanic Spa really works on lifting the skin, which in turn lessons the appearance of wrinkles. This use-at-home tool will also revitalize the scalp, lift body skin and treat the appearance of cellulite. All treatments last about 5 mins.
What's the catch? You have to keep buying the gels every month, and there is only 4 in a box. (Hint: Try using half of the tube and taping it shut to double the treatments). Also, this has to be done frequently to maintain.
It seems that a lot of great products are sold through multi-level marketing companies and because of this, are overlooked. Here's Nuskin's website, the creator of the Galvanic Spa:
