I Took My Time to Listen

I’ d had a headache for about two hours and thought, I’ll go out, get some air and a few things at the grocery store.

 I picked up some little juicy  Clementine’s, broccoli, a hunk of dark chocolate and started to walk home when I heard the way I hear things,  “ sit and have some soup.”

Ok, well sure, so I sat down outside at my little Chinese-take-out ordered a small wonton soup, downed it and thought... hum that was weird.

 But when I listen and I am called— I do.

I started to walk home and saw my friend Lina who works at my local Starbucks. We have a familiar morning relationship that centers around one shot of peppermint and Mocha for my holiday latte.

“Hey how are you?” She buoyantly asked.

“Well Lina,  I’m really sad that our Blockbuster is going out of business… I need a hug.”  We laughed, but she hugged me anyway and then it just popped in my head to ask about her girlfriend, Kit.

“ Well actually she is right over here”…She led me to the back corner of Starbucks where Kit was hunkerd down at her computer. We all three  commiserated on  how we like and dont like ordering videos on line… when Lina said, “ today is the anniversary of Kit’s mothers death.”

My headache flared. So for the next 40 minutes we talked to Jo Ann, Kit's mom. She had died from a brain aneurism. Lots of funny wonderful, interesting details that had Kits eyes wet, red and joyous that her mom knew so much about her, like she had been looking over her shoulder in preparation for our meeting. My headache stopped when Jo Ann said to her daughter, “ Be joyous...Oh, and fix your bike.”

They both hugged me and asked,” aren’t you tired?”

“ Not in the least, I’m just glad I took my time to listen.” I said.

This is how I want my holiday to be, filled with Spirit and the messages that they have for others …and me.
And that's the way it was on December 2nd 2011.

It's sort of funny, I am taking my time to see.

We are much more ppreceptive when we let go of the physical.

Be well,

I have just discovered you have a web page and then a Blog! I am so glad. I am a long time listener to W. Strieber and what stroke me as most relevant from your appearances with Whitley is the ease with which you laugh and say things. I don't think this activity of perceiving the other side should be an endeavor that requires effort as many psychics seem to do. You either have the gift or not. It is like talking to others; walking... if you are making an effort, you have a problem. Enough with this.

Just to say I listen dutifully to Whitley and all his staff in "unknowncountry" and find all of you very intelligent, daring and advanced. One of these days I may gather the confidence for a session. Do I need it? I don't know, but I truly believe we all can use guidance and should seek connection to those who left us, because they are just a thought away. I usually do that by speaking to them telepathically when I feel them near me though I cannot be sure. What I am sure of is that the message arrives. NAMASTE

Thank you Anais Anais...I will share your sentiments with the Strieber's. My abilities are just like anyone good at what they do. Those who need to work with me, will know.

I love my work, I am dutifully employed by Spirit, and thats a full time job!
;) Marla

I have spent some time with your blog and find it both interesting and insightful. Now I find myself coming back for no really obvious reason...

The image from the Monroe Inst seems the picture of tranquillity and sometimes I come back just to look at it.

This little vignette about following the Spirit seems filled with many things ... Both simple and profound it seems to say many things to me.. Thank you for your stories.. Like the image of the Monroe Inst they convey their own serenity.
