News from a friend...from beyond?  

Sunday, May 20, 2007

It is no big secret among my friends that I am deeply interested in spirituality, in a life beyond death, reincarnation. However, I do try to keep this part of myself to me, and not talk much about it.
Today though, while reading We are their heaven, by Allison DuBois (the medium who inspired the same name famous tv series), I realised something that really shook me up, although it happened 2-3 days ago. I just didn't pay attention to it at that time.

A couple of years ago I met online a person who would become a very dear friend of mine, maybe one of the best friends I had, ever. We wrote each other emails every day, talked about his family, I talked about mine, he was sort of a guru in Excel programming, taught me pretty much everything I new about creating VBA macros and helped me quite a lot with my work. Every morning (as he was living in the States) I was rushing to get my emails at work, knowing that i will get one from Tom. And there it was, indeed. All his emails started with 'Good morning, Sunshine'. Nobody ever called me sunshine before. Now don't get me wrong, our relationship was not only 'platonic', but there was never ever any allusion of anything else beyond being best friends.

After about 3 years of being that, he told me one September that he found out he had cancer. He was devastated, and so was I. He tried every cure, alternative thing that he could, he told me all about it, and he was so positive. Actually I don't think I met a more positive person in my life before or after. He just wouldn't give up. Nevertheless one day, early next year, his emails stopped coming. I visited his website, tried calling him, but nobody would answer. After a few months, his number got disconnected. I knew he passed away, but of course, nobody ever contacted me to tell me he died inded. How would they, nobody knew we were friends.

Since I am so interested in the paranormal, I was always asking him to talk to me, to give me a sign that he is ok, any way he could. Nothing happened.

He never left my mind, I still keep thinking of him pretty often, but not in the way of looking for a contact any longer, just with simple nostalgia of great past times and sadness that they are no longer here...

A few days ago, out of the blue, a friend sent me a message which he started with 'how are you sunshine?' I froze. All the memories came flooding back and I tried to stop the tears. I think I even told him that nobody ever called me sunshine before, except a friend who died a few years ago. But still, I didn't think much of it.
Later on in the day, somebody else in the office called me out of the blue 'hello sunshine'. I was in a hurry to a meeting though so I didn't give it much thought.

Tonight, while reading the Allison DuBois book, after my meditation, while in a calm state of mind, it hit me. Tom finally managed to come through to me, by the only way he knew how to make me understand it's him: by calling me sunshine by two people who would not normally call me so.

I now know that Tom is in peace, and happy, I guess, and I got a first personal confirmation of what I so much wanted to get: that the world beyond really exists, that death is not the end.

Is it strange that this happened so soon after my reiki 2 attunement, when my energy level has been raised a notch? I don't think so, but is good to know that, indeed, it works :-)
