About almost a month ago I heard some noises in my house, sounded like footsteps and not just the cats roaming around playing. I’ve skirted several ghosts before. I have for years actively prayed not to see them, because generally speaking I scare easily.
But I sensed someone was asking my help to cross over. I know so little about this it seems ridiculous of me to entertain that but I don’t try to be logical about these things anymore. So I promised the soul I would once a month on the 13th try to help them out. But I told them and any other souls hovering around that I had to be left alone until that day. They indeed left me mostly alone; nothing very noteworthy.
Now if you’d ask anyone that even remotely knows me you’d know I don’t function without my calendar. I know maybe 7 people’s birthdays in the world by memory and even then I usually forget. I never remember anniversaries or special dates….. never. Generally my partners have been the ones to keep me reminded, thankfully.
So the fact that I completely forgot I had said this never crossed my mind again until I was just now laying in bed and then it came in clear as a bell. A kind of “hey….remember…today is that day”. So clear in fact that I knew the thought didn’t come from me. Hard to understand and explain that maybe.
So…… I did a group prayer and asked God for forgiveness and to open the way for them. Those I couldn’t help I asked to come back next month. I told them they could only stay if they were going to be helpful and not scare me but that they should go and see about penance and achieving forgiveness for themselves, atonement.
Not sure why I picked that date. I guess because I thought I’d remember. I should write it in my calendar but it seems I may not need to as I was very clearly reminded tonight and no reason to create more work for myself than needed. I’m not particularly superstitious and some people even believe the 13th is lucky, but we’ll see what happens when it falls on a Friday.
I don’t know. Really I’m just winging it all here…..
And if you’re thinking to yourself “this sounds like madness”….. yeah…..I totally get it. And a few months ago I would have completely agreed, I’m absolutely sure. But……..
Once you put it all together; once I put the puzzle pieces of the past and present together, it all makes so much sense.
I feel like I don’t need all that much logic anymore. My intuition is a much better source of knowledge for me now. It always has been; I just never gave it the credit it deserved or the space to grow.
