Dare to Tell – Day 10
As a little girl I could always sense pain, see illness, and notice happiness. And when I played, there were characters, stories and voices everywhere. The garden would be a whole world for me. It made people a little nervous.
I sensed and said things that were not quite ‘normal’ for a child. Adults felt uncomfortable with my truths.
I remember asking my mother’s friend “Do you have a headache?” She seemed surprised and bothered by my question, “no, I’m fine”. But later she asked my mother if there was any medication in the house.
So I hid away, I stopped telling people what I noticed. I shut it down. I even began to forget what I could see and sense. I became withdrawn and unhappy; I struggled with my weight and my health.
It was years later when I found myself in a metaphysical bookshop. I didn’t know it was there and I had no idea what kind of books these were. It was like a magnet pulled me in and magic kept me there.
I stood in the middle of the store and noticed the books moving without me touching them. One even fell to the floor. I felt a wave of emotion sweep over me and I began to cry.
I picked up the book that had fallen beside my feet, it was about Angel Healing. Time stopped. I carried that book around with me everywhere. My healing had begun.
I discovered a whole world where I could help others while discovering myself; starting with my natural talent for massage and body work
Last Sunday, I felt a connection to a family member who I had heard was in a coma. I saw her there. I told her it was okay, I saw the angel, she could go. Later that day, I was told that she had passed away just at that time.
Here in Nigeria I feel the fear of the world; the greed and ugliness, the pain and distrust. It is a strange and perfect place for me to be putting the pieces together.
A lifetime of travel and cultural diversity and yet I now know that I have always been different, I communicated on another level. It’s time to stop living the fear of my unusual knowing and instead receive and offer its gifts.
