This past weekend I took a class with Anysia Kiel http://www.anysiakiel.com/. We did a guided meditation of sorts. It was all at once amazing, powerful and undeniable. Visualizing sitting at the ocean and thinking of our loved ones who have passed over she asks us to stand and turn to our left and start walking. Then she suggests that these very same loved ones are walking towards us to greet us.
In my minds eye I can see him, he is smiling and running towards me blasting an intense wave of unconditional love as he wraps his spiritual arms around me. The energy nearly knocks me off my chair and I begin to sob. Even though I know he is always with me- I have missed his hugs, I have missed his physical person- this is the next best thing. His love envelops me, I feel his smile. He makes me smile through my tears.
Then a tender energy steps forward, My Mama from another time. She is also with me in spirit daily but now I feel her sweet tender kisses.
Lastly my golden retriever, Ruby comes bouncing up. She loves the beach, once she even swam on Christmas day, this is her happy place. I feel her nudges, see her chocolate eyes and feel her joy.
I am consumed by LOVE. There is a crowd behind them, I cannot even begin to imagine all the LOVE that is waiting for me.
Often, we are so sad when someone passes, our hearts break, we miss them beyond words. So, I offer this, even though they are leaving us behind they are returning to those who went before them. It is a Divine Reunion of Unconditional Love. Our sadness is not theirs. Joy awaits them, and they are always always always still with us, if only in Spirit.
