I have recently submitted my first spiritual account to this website (I am still waiting to see if it is published) about an experience I had when I was younger, wherein I saw my dead sister quite often but the thought of it scared me so much I couldn't stand it.
Well anyway, back to this story. This happened in 2001.
I had recently split from my first husband (I married young at 23 and it only lasted a few years in total) and was feeling quite down about my life. My friends decided that they needed to take me out.
The plan was to go and see a spiritual medium (which we had done various times before at a local place) then go out for a drink after. But unlike usual visits this one was at a friend's house. During my previous visits I had never had anyone "come through" for me but I was interested nevertheless.
So on this day, I got myself ready to go out, whilst doing so I decided that today would be the day to remove my wedding ring and start to get on with my life. So I painted my toenails to wear nice new sandals, put my make-up on and got all dressed up to go out.
About 30 minutes before we were due to go out the weather changed from warm and sunny to wet & windy so not being a real girlie girl anyway I decided that I was not dressed appropriately and changed into something warmer (from dress & sandals into jeans & boots).
Living in England you get used to weather changing a lot so it was no big deal.
Anyway, my friends called for me at normal time and we went to my other friends house for the spiritual meeting. It was a lady medium I seen before but never spoken to.
During the meeting she said there were various spirits around us and tried to place them. Some were for my friends but some weren't.
Anyway, towards the end of the meeting she said that there was a female spirit standing beside me, quite young, she couldn't say her name but she outright just said "did you have a sister" as the position of the girl showed her to be a close relative of mine.
I confirmed that I did have a young sister die when I was also young. And the medium said to me, she just has a message for you. This is where it got creepy!
MESSAGE: "Missing jewellery will return, but I love your lady toes, everything will be ok"! END OF MESSAGE. That was all the medium could tell me.
Now to explain, being quite sceptical of mediums telling things about you I checked myself over for tell tale signs. And I thought she could tell I had recently removed my ring as I had the tell tale mark still around my finger where my wedding ring had been so I dismissed that straightaway.
BUT, how did she know I had painted my toes when I had socks and boots on, more to the point, I had painted them red with white dots on them i.e similar to a lady bug ("lady toes?"). I checked my hands etc to see if I had accidentally left nail varnish on my fingers / arms / clothes but there was nothing to see. That was weird for me.
Even more so, 6 months later my husband and I reconciled for another 2 years. The day I put my wedding ring back on I remembered the message "missing jewellery will return".
So whilst I cannot say without a doubt it was my dead sister Emily, it gave me hope that she was still there watching out for me.
Do you believe that some mediums can actually pass messages such as this or do you think it was a guess on the medium's part that just happened to be relevant to me?
If you have any questions/comments please let me know.
