I recently reached out to an old friend that I hadn’t spoken to in about 7 years. There was no real reason why we hadn’t spoken other than we simply grew apart. We were friends on Facebook so we could still see what was going on in each others life but hadn’t really spoken directly in years. Her mother took her own life and chose to come to me with a message that she wanted me to pass on. I wanted to share this because it literally gave me chills when I read her response. I removed names and personal details to respect the privacy of my friend and her family.
This was my message to her:
I know we haven’t spoken in a while and I wanted to say how very sorry I am about your mother. It must have been an unbearable year for you, I just couldn’t imagine. I don’t know if you actually know what I do now, well actually I have been able to do it my whole life. I talk to Angels for people all over the world. There was a long period of time where I chose to tune it out but as I settled down I realized what a true gift it really was. Most often I speak with my own guides who give wonderful insights into all sorts of topics for both myself and others; some people call them Angels, some call them spirit guides, I suppose it really doesn’t matter what you choose to call them. For me I have always felt most comfortable calling them Angels. Though it’s rare that I speak directly to someone who has crossed over, not because I can’t but because I have always felt more comfortable speaking with my guides instead, I do every once in a while.
The reason I am reaching out is because last night I was putting our youngest son back down to sleep and your mom came into my bedroom. I know it must seem odd, but she just wanted me to pass on a message to you. I admit I was a bit apprehensive because I didn’t know how you would take it, but she was very persistent. I woke up this morning still feeling unsure as to whether I would say anything so I mentioned it to Rich (my husband) and he thought that I definitely should, and just then I looked at my phone and you had invited me to the walk for your mom, so I took it as another push to ensure I passed the message along.
Your mom simply wanted to tell you how sorry she was for putting you through all of this heartache and that she is completely at peace now. She said though she is incredibly sorry for putting the family through such heartbreak she doesn’t regret leaving as she now feels completely at peace, something she couldn’t seem to find while she was alive. She wants you to know that there wasn’t anything anyone could have done to change her mind. She very much wants you and the rest of your family to know that she has never stopped watching over all of you and she see’s everything that is going on still. She wanted me to mention the “teddy bear”. I’m not particularly sure if you or someone put a teddy bear in her casket, or if you just recently received a teddy bear, or if it’s a nickname for someone but she said you would know what it meant. So I’m hoping you know what she meant by that because she didn’t make it particularly clear to me.
I hope that her message has given you even the tiniest bit of peace. You are welcome to take a look at my site to see what I do www.Angelic-Guides.com I know it might seem a bit strange being that I never mentioned that I could do this but again its not something I embraced again until about 6 years ago.
I hope you are well and by the way your puppy is precious!
I didn’t receive a response for a few days which had my mind wandering….should I have said anything? What if there wasn’t a teddy bear? What if she thinks Im crazy…after all it isn’t exactly an every day occurrence that some one reaches out to you with a message from a loved one that passed on…..Well here was her response!
Hi Taryn – thanks so much for reaching out – I’ve had a crazy busy week – meant to write sooner but it’s harder for me to write from Iphone instead of real computer!
Thanks for your kind words – I’m still in a state of shock over the loss of my mother, my best friend 😞 It was shocking to say the least. I, of course, rack my brain with the what if’s & why’s – any death of a close loved one is difficult – I can’t even begin to tell you how suicide throws you on a roller coaster I don’t think will EVER stop! She sends me signs often & I feel her presence – My sister had someone tell her that my Mom hasn’t reached out directly to us as is still fearing we’re mad at her or angry at her for leaving the way she did.
My mother chose to take her own life – She left us very explicit length letters. She wore an Alex & Ani bracelet so her children would be with her when she left the earth & explained what bracelet she wore for each of us in her letters. While they were very bent up – We did leave those bracelets on her wrist for the wake/funeral & decided to bury them with her. I had purchased the TEDDY BEAR one for her in NYC as a random gift (a place we both enjoyed spending time together in) when she was bummed/depressed-at the time it was NYC exclusive where you could only purchase there. When I gave it to her she smirked & said” did you get (I removed the name) one too-she’s gonna be jealous “& I said no just one for you & one for me. All the Alex & Ani bracelets have ‘meanings’ & the teddy bear is: A symbol of comfort, the teddy bear is a reminder of the carefree days of childhood. A loving companion, this furry friend carries joyful memories and an optimistic energy in its plush fabric. The teddy bear is also a loyal guardian, a cheerful encouragement during challenging times. Wear the Little Brown Bear Charm to celebrate life’s treasures and infinite love.
It’s also a ‘charity’ bracelet: ALEX AND ANI will donate 20% of the purchase price* from the Little Brown Bear Charm, with a minimum donation of $25,000, between September 2014 and December 2016 to the Child Mind Institute, an organization committed to transforming mental health care for children everywhere by providing help, hope, and answers to families.
Ironically, I have not worn MY teddy bear bracelet since the funeral & just last week I was organizing my jewelry in my walk in accessory closet & came across it.
Your message warmed my heart. And the couple people I shared it with were blown away that knew the story behind the teddy bear bracelet.
I literally got chills when I read about the Teddy Bear! It’s something I couldn’t have possibly ever have known! Loved ones will often provide very specific forms of validation so that their loved ones know that it is in fact them sending the message.
If you have questions for the Angels, I invite you to book a session today 🙂
