Doesn’t time fly?! Not because I was dressed as a witch… but our fourth event has come and gone so quickly. It was a very interesting get-together. We had some laughs and scary stories, all shared on a very rainy, dark night. Many wore costumes which I really appreciated. It is so healthy to allow ourselves to play… to assume another role just for fun. Thank you to everyone who did play along and share, and thank you all for coming out on such a stormy night.
Our recent gathering wasn’t about whether one believes in ghosts or not, it was more about, “what do I do with my ghost?!” Hearing of the situations that people have found themselves in, and that they moved through each experience with such acceptance about the presence of these spirits, was pleasantly surprising. Hollywood often portrays ghosts in a very unpleasant light. This is nothing new, there has been a love—hate relationship with scary stories for a very long time. I myself love a good scare now and then but they have nothing to do with reality. I have to say I have never met a ghost that I didn’t like. Most often they are staying here out of their love for someone still in a physical life.
By the end of the evening, on October 29th, the atmosphere for our gathering was one of compassion for “ghosts” instead of fear. Some ghosts will stay put for reasons only they know. Some ghosts don’t even realize they have passed. Free will exists in spirit just as it does in a physical life. At this event, Joanna talked about some House Healings we had done in the past, and this discussion gave us a different perspective on encountering ghosts. I think everyone was glad to hear that we can help ghosts move forward. Especially to hear the fact that there is nothing in spirit that can harm you… they can be noisy, but mostly they are lost and need help. So the next time…
“some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. ‘’Tis some visitor,’ I muttered, ‘tapping at my chamber door – Only this, and nothing more.”
Love you all and looking forward to the next get-together.
