Go Ahead, Ask The Question

Written by

It was a beautiful medium sized doe, about 150 pounds that stood in the front yard of the home as I walked up the driveway.  I was careful not to make any aggressive moves and averted my eyes from hers most of the time.  I passed within 20 feet and she never moved but she watched my every step.

After providing a Comparative Market Analysis the week prior, the woman had invited me over.  Once inside, I toured the spectacular home and then we sat down to discuss the specifics.   She mentioned her husband had transitioned four years prior, she explained, indicating that she was preparing to downsize and move further south to be near her grandchildren.

When she told me about her husband crossing the threshold, I couldn’t help myself and asked if he had visited or if she had received any signs.  She indicated not, but that she talks to him often, basically yelling at him for leaving her alone.  As we spoke I shared Quinton with her, the wonderful ways he made contact with us.  I do this to provide her an inkling of how the signs happen. 

I shared a story about a woman whose daughter transitioned twenty years prior under horrific circumstances; twenty years later the woman was still bitter and angry.  She and I crossed paths in 2012 and I convinced her to see a reputable medium that I knew.  She agreed.  About a month later she came in to see me.  She was very direct and didn’t seem very happy. She talked for an hour about the reading and I listened intently without asking questions.  When she finished, she asked – “What do you think?” 

Without going into details I said, “Remember about 40 minutes ago you said ‘That was odd’, about 30 minutes ago you said ‘This was strange’, and 20 minutes ago you said this, ‘That was unusual’?”  I said, “Well, I know what they were; they were validating comments. That was your daughter letting you know that she is alive and well on the Other Side by sharing information that there was no way the medium could know or make up”  Then I continued by saying, “While I know this, it is now up to you to understand and acknowledge this for yourself.”

As I continued speaking to the woman missing her husband about signs I mentioned mirror gazing and seeing figures out of the corner or our eyes.  That got her attention.  I asked if she had that experience and she said yes.  I pressed her gently, saying “and when you turn to face what you are seeing in your periphery, it is gone, right?”  She nodded yes.  Calmly I told her that was her husband and encouraged her not to turn to face him, but instead to acknowledge his presence and to talk with him. 

Our meeting ended and I left the house.  As I walked out the front door, there was the same deer, now bedded down resting.  I followed up with an e-mail thanking her for her time and saying, “As I mentioned, when I walked up to your home, I walked right past a deer.  When I walked out, not only was it still there, but it had made itself at home.  Have you noticed this deer before?  Of course there is a reason I am asking.”  She replied, “Got your gist, Ernie.  Made me smile.”

Don’t be afraid to ask The Question.  Don’t be afraid to have the conversation.  Each of us, as we process our own grief, is here to serve and help others process their grief and see the larger picture.

Blessings!
