Life Is Fleeting

Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me.

Robin Williams

Today marks two years since my Mom passed away. It feels like only yesterday and yet at the same time, it feels like years have passed since my sister and I were with her that fateful day. I awoke this morning at 5:30am, much earlier than usual, only to remember that two years ago, at that same hour, we were with her as she was transitioning. I wondered if on some level she had awakened me so I could be there to honor her at her hour. I spent the next hour in prayer, perusing through the multitude of photos and videos of our family, remembering the good times we spent together.

It’s a strange feeling to remember that you’re all alone. Only those of us who have lost our parents will understand that bereft feeling that startles you without warning. For so much has changed since she passed away. I’m still recovering from Open Heart Surgery and while my Mom wouldn’t have been capable to help me recuperate, it would have been lovely to have her here. To know that she was with me even if she couldn’t do anything more than pray for me. Thank the Good Lord that my parents gave me my sister for whom I am so grateful. She has been a Godsend to me.

I have learned that they are always with me. Even though I have many loved ones on the other side, I know they are around me. I can catch glimpses of them. I know our precious pets can too as I watch them track someone in the room who is invisible to the naked human eye. They know. They hear. They are aware of the loving energy that surrounds us.

I have a friend whose husband passed away and he makes his presence known in many ways to his still living wife. While you may not ‘believe’ in such things, I have born witness to some unexplainable events, coincidences and synchronicities that keep my faith strong in the belief that we are energy and those who have passed can communicate with those of us still here on earth.

I like this quote from Robin Williams especially because I’m a skywatcher myself and love to catch a glimpse of a shooting star as it streaks across the night sky. While I had never heard this quote before, I thought it was apropos. So tonight, you know I’ll be sitting on my front porch, watching the night sky.

Have you ever had any moments when you believed you received a visit from a departed loved one? I’d love to hear about them if you’d please share! Keep shining your heartlights!

Shine On!

Shooting Star Sighting And A Spiritual Present

shootingstarsighting

Last night, I quietly sat outside on my front porch, gazing at the now barren corn fields across the street.  There are trees beyond the fields, but mostly from my vantage point, it’s clear sky and Mother Earth.

Suddenly from behind my house and through the trees to my left, I saw a HUGE WHITE STAR arc across the sky and begin to fall.  At first, I thought it might have been a plane as the vision was that big!  You know how it looks when you see a plane coming in for a landing, right?  There’s a small airport beyond the trees across the street at the farm where occasionally I glimpse planes landing and taking off beyond the trees.  But this wasn’t a plane!

It was silent as it arced and then fell.  Not like a small shooting star as I’ve seen and written about here.  Instead, it was bright white and big and as it got closer to the ground in front of the trees (in the cornfield), it seemed to fizzle into nothingness.  I sat very still as I watched it and as much as I wish I had taken my phone out to photograph it for it fell effortlessly and slowly, I wouldn’t risk missing a moment of the phenomenon.

I admit, I was awestruck.  Beautiful just doesn’t describe the vision, nor the most serene feeling that enveloped me as I watched it.  Suddenly a white puff about the size of my fist floated toward me on the non-existent breeze.  You know, like a big white fluffy feather, but in a ball shape.  It wafted past me and then behind my left shoulder.  I turned to look for it, but it was nowhere to be found in the darkness.  Again, that feeling of being cocooned in peace came over me.

I just knew I’d experienced a spiritual gift.

Has anything like this ever happened to you?

It was most extraordinary and lovely.  I feel very blessed to share this with you today.  If anyone has any intuitive thoughts, please share below.  I felt like it was a sweet visitation filled with angelic love.

I hope you have a beautiful Sunday.  May peace be yours with every breath.

Shine On!

What Does Seeing a Shooting Star Mean?

39413_

Good morning to you!  Can you please help me?  Last night, I was outside at a party, talking with family and friends, but my mind was elsewhere.  I was quietly looking up at the night sky, admiring the stars when I saw a shooting star!  I haven’t seen one in years and although I was with other people who were talking, I guess nobody noticed it but me.  And I didn’t say anything.  I just kept the moment for myself because I felt it was special.  But I was distracted moments later, before I could make my wish and so now I’m asking for your help.

Shine On!

Thought you might want to go down memory lane today…

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Faith is kind
She brings to those she loves
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
