I always hesitate before sharing something that is out of the norm, at least for me. This is another one of those moments.
A few years ago, the teenage son of a family I know was in the hospital. One night during his stay, as I was meditating, I placed a shield around Zane, asking that he be kept safe. As I envisioned Zane's face, I saw the Grim Reaper. This was the stereotypical, Hollywood production of the Grim Reaper: Black hooded robe and scythe.
I knew in my heart and soul it was coming for Zane and it completely freaked me out. In my head I yelled, "Go away! You can't have him! Go away!" and the Reaper backed out of my sight. I cried because I was so afraid for Zane.
The whole night I was scared to death that he had died. So early the next morning, I called one of Zane's family members to see how he did overnight, without going into detail about my vision. Apparently he had had a very bad night and he had almost died.
There are things about this experience that I don't understand. Like why the Grim Reaper appeared to me, unless it was because I was placing a protective shield around Zane. If it was indeed his purpose was to take Zane, why did Zane survive?
The only thing that I am sort of certain about is why I saw the Grim Reaper in this form because I truly don't believe this is what the Reaper really looks like. I think it appeared to me in this form so I would know, without the shadow of a doubt, who it was. I mean, seriously, if someone appeared to me in jeans and t-shirt, maybe even a black hoodie, I wouldn't assume it was the Reaper even if it had a scythe. I would immediately think serial killer LOL
Like I said, I hesitate before submitting experiences like this. I'm open to any and all comments, suggestions, thoughts, theories, ideas.
