A lovely post Erin, and very much in line with my own experiences as a medium.
I had a friend pass away suddenly a couple of weeks ago and had some interesting and delightful interactions with him.
The week before he died a fantail flew into the house and buzzed my head. An ominous sign. According to Maori legend, fantails’ flying inside indicates a death. Then, a couple of days before, I felt like a heavy cloak had been thrown over me and felt on the verge of tears for no reason.
A couple of days after his death, he appeared in the lounge patting at his body going, ‘Look, its still here!’ Meaning he was surprised he still had a body. A little later, I heard ‘Look, look!’ and saw him with his arms through the wall and a huge grin on his face. Then he pulled his arms out and waved his hands around. I laughed and thought ‘yes that’s Graeme, exploring his new body.’ The next ‘Look, look’ I couldn’t see him anywhere and I got the impression he could be in an etheric body or not if he wanted.
The following morning while I was having breakfast he sat next to me and showed me what happened when he died. All I knew was that he’d had a massive heart attack. I had no idea if he died on the spot or later in hospital. He said it felt like a huge tree trunk had been rammed into his chest and he couldn’t get a single breath. He was about to step off a porch onto a step. He tried to reach out for a pillar but missed it and fell to the ground. He showed me his head hitting the step but he didn’t feel it. Then he showed me himself standing next to his body trying to breath for it. I sat with him and watched his wife and a man try to resuscitate him. He was pretty annoyed at his body for clapping out. When it was taken away he grumbled, ‘You can have it, it’s no bloody use now.’
After the body had gone we were still sitting on the front step and a man in his mid thirties appeared on the lawn not far from us. I watched Graeme get up and walk towards him. Behind the man was a crowd of people. I had the feeling Graeme didn’t know the man because there was no sign of recognition but once they started talking Graeme became quite animated. They both walked into the crowd of people and disappeared. I wondered afterwards if the new ‘after death’ reality becomes more real and they perceive us more like a dream.
His wife had emailed to ask if I got anything from him would I let her know. So I emailed back what I picked up and she confirmed everything that happened.
I would love to get names clearer. I can see dead people, feel their feelings and hear their thoughts but only get clear names intermittently. If anyone knows how to develop clairaudience further, I love any tips.
