Happy Deceased Anniversary

Girl in coffin at calico ghost town

As you may recall from my IG stories I was in Vegas a couple weeks ago with my Beast Fiend for a last minute two day whirlwind playdate. We had lots of fun doing many and sundry things but one thing that happened I didn’t share on my stories. That was how I passed along an anniversary message from a deceased wife to her husband.

I’ve mentioned it before but I haven’t really delved too deeply here into one of more unusual talents. Briefly; I’ve always been a “sensitive” but a Near Death Experience several years ago has turned that into a full blown clairsentience with a dash of clairvoyance and clairaudience as well.

Feeling the dead is pretty much a full time experience for me. They are, after all, everywhere. But because my gift is more in the feels range as opposed to a ghost just saying, “tell Uncle Joe I left the will in the basement cabinet” it’s been really difficult for me to be able to offer much help unless someone seeks me out and asks me to reach out to someone. And even then all I can offer is vague images and emotions. So I mostly exist with my ghosts quietly.

Vegas was different. The Beast Fiend insisted on a buffet for dinner so we were in line waiting and a lovely older gent was right in front of us. When the Beast Fiend and I get together we’re pretty extra so this gentleman started talking to us. He was there in Vegas celebrating his anniversary. Only…his wife was dead. He was there without her. Now he wasn’t completely alone, he had a friend there, but he was alone for dinner and I could just feel how much he missed her.

As we were standing there I started to feel the familiar buzzing I get when a ghost is around and the conversation with this man and my friend faded into the background. I kept seeing a dog. And a feeling of love and concern.

I focused and taking a chance on not offending him I blurted, “Do you have a dog?”

No, he answered. But they used to have two and both of them were in the room with her when he came home to find her dead.

“She wants you to know it’s ok and she says Happy Anniversary.”

He didn’t say anything and his face was sort of blank.

I said, “I hope I havent upset or offended you.”

No, he said. He was just a little overwhelmed. He’d been waiting for years to get some sort of sign that she was ok.

I told him that I thought he’d just got it.

We all went our own ways and that was that.

Like I said its a rare opportunity when I can help someone like that, especially a stranger, and it always leaves me vaguely wondering if I should have kept my mouth shut instead. Maybe all it did was give him a good story to laugh about with his friends and make fun of. I like to think, however, that it actually gave him some peace and helped him feel not so alone on his Anniversary.

Til next time, my darling Misfits,

Most of you know, or can at least guess, that I’n very intuitive and believe strongly in the worlds of magic, Universal energy, and the old ways.

So I was thrilled when the lovely tarot reader, Kerry at TarotBella.etsy.com offered to pull my cards and do a reading for me. That said, I’d never had a reading long distance before and boy was this long distance, she’s in England! So I was definitely hesitant about how this was going to work.

Turns out my worries were unfounded because I was impressed.

Right off the bat the first thing my reading said was that I am clairsentient. How she knew this I have no idea because we hadn’t spoken of it. Clairsentience is not one of the more commonly discussed psychic gifts. Clairvoyant is the norm, or Telepathic or even Sensitive. But clairsentient, the ability to feel the dead, is a pretty random word to pull out of one’s hat. I was suitably taken aback.

The reading went on to discuss my immediate future, which apparently was ruled by cup cards and would be full of expanding career opportunities (my newly redesigned main Instagram account perhaps? Hmmm….).

There was a section given to my spirit guide. And another to my actual card spread. Which when it boiled all down told me that the inner turmoil I’ve been feeling lately had very strong roots in a subtle feeling of disconnect in my social media. It’s good to know the universe backs me up in my decision to make some changes!

And all of it was presented beautifully with Halloween graphics, lovely fonts and black and white photos.

Kerry herself is the tarot reader for UK Cosmopolitan magazine and UK newspaper, The Sun. Clearly the woman has some talent.

She has her own Etsy shop as well where you can get your own readings.

And to top it all off she’s just the sweetest, most humble person. Really there’s just nothing not to like here.

Check her out and tell her I sent you.
