The KEY to connecting to your loved ones in spirit is your heart chakra.
When I lost my Great Grandmother and the ANGEL of my family, I was crushed.
At the time, I was just learning how to tap into my natural intuitive centers effectively, and at this point in my development, it was easiest for me to connect with Spirit when surrounded by water. One morning in the shower, I closed my eyes and did a short meditation, hoping to receive some kind of message from my sweet Grandmother who had passed a few days earlier… I learned from my spiritual teachers a technique of presenting Spirit with a question, and having them place an object in my hand as a way to give me a “visual symbol” of the answer…
As I felt my grandmothers spirit fill me, it was the most amazing and comforting feeling in the World. I just knew it was her. I felt like I had felt back when I was with her as a child. Her energy brought me back to those beautiful memories and time we had spent together before she was struck with illness, Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, and then ultimately (after long years spent in a nursing home), her passing.
I didn’t want her feeling to leave me, so as I filled with happy but sorry tears, I asked her “Grammy, how can I connect with you like this again? I don’t want you to leave me!…” Putting my hand out, with my eyes still closed, I waited for her to place something in my hand, like my spiritual teacher has recommended. I sensed that what she had given me in my palm was a key hole…. I laughed because it didn’t give me an answer that I was able to completely understand, but I was very happy that I received a clear hint! Shocked really!
At that point, I was still in my early development of the psychic senses…. I asked another question, slightly giggling with anticipation and slight disbelief… “Here is the key whole, thanks Gram, but where is the key?” I outstretched my hand once more, but instead of receiving a symbolic object, I felt her touch my hand, which she then placed on my heart….. 💚 I cried my eyes out, thanked her, and I have happily been able to connect with her ever since then, on a regular basis.
As I learned more about the heart chakra, I began to understand more and more about what she meant. We connect with other people through many chakras, but the heart chakra is a strong center in which we use to sense human emotion and the love connection that we share with others, both in life and in Spirit…
By having a strong, healthy and open heart chakra, we are able to receive more of this clear, loving energy and communication from Spirt, which of course opens the doors for loving experiences and symbolic dialog. 💕
I will be chatting more about this topic in the Free Intro to Sixth Sensory Living Workshop that will be starting on January 4th, 2016. (Please see my “Free Online Workshops” page for a list of my available workshops and courses.)
In the mean time, I really wanted to share this story with everyone and offer a Healing Crystal that does an amazing job with really clearing out and opening the heart chakra; Malachite 💚
Wishing you a beautiful 2016 filled with loving connections and fond memories! ~Aly
