a recent time of meditation and prayer, I gathered pictures
of my parents, my best friend, my grandmother, and other loved
ones who had passed. I lit a candle in front of their pictures.
I began my meditation by giving thanks for all the wonderful
people in my life and even slipped in a request for guidance
for some troubling things that were occurring. I then focused
on my pictures and sent feelings of love to all those who
had passed on. I thanked every one for what they'd meant to
me, asking them to be a continued guidance in my life.
the end of my session I was particularly missing my mother.
I gazed into her picture and said (telepathically) "Ma,
could you give me a sign? I'm ready. I'm not scared. I miss
you and would be delighted with a sign."
Suddenly, the flame on the candle shot high in the air. It
started to dance from left to right, really wildly. I looked
around the room to see if a window was open, or a draft was
coming from somewhere. Nothing. My heart started to beat faster.
I said, "Ma, is this you? If it is, do something different,

or went high in the air. I had such a great feeling at this
point. It was like a warm coating of love slid over my head,
down to my toes. It was as if her spirit were hugging me.
The hair stood up on my arms and it brought tears to my eyes.
great experience! I feel so blessed when things like this
