It was August 1977, I remember it well as it was the year Elvis died. We decided to go away to our normal coastal holiday. My Dad had died 6 months previous to this and the month before my mum had a life threatening operation for a burst stomach ulcer. She had most of her stomach removed and was told by the surgeon she may live up to ten years after the operation. One morning we were all in our bungalow when a little old gypsy woman came into the kitchen, she was carrying a bundle of heather. She first spoke to my Mum and asked her if she had recently lost her husband. She also told her one of her children was causing her lots of problems at the moment, which was true. Lastly she said she would live until she was 92, I remember thinking at the time that she had this wrong as the hospital had told me Mum the month before that she would only live for up to ten years. This lady then put her arm around me, she said that I would always be happy, I would meet someone tall dark and handsome that would change my life forever, and he wouldn't be my husband. She also told me that I was one of Jesus' chosen people....she then left. I remember my Mum saying this lady had guessed and it was all a load of rubbish....but I never did, I remember every single bit of this 'visit'.
Througout my teens I would talk to Jesus and I knew he was always there watching over me. During my twenties life took over and he faded into the background, however that all changed when I had hypnosis three years ago and was able to meet him. I truly believe everything this gypsy lady had to tell us, and I also believe she was sent by my Dad to reassure me that I wasn't going to be left without my Mum.
Today has been spent at the hospital with my 90 year old Mum. It reminded me of what happened when I was 11 and I thought I would share it here. Whilst I sat by her hospital bed I had the spirit of this gypsy visit me, she had the most beautiful gentle energy, was so warm and loving. She reassured me today just as she did all those years ago. If ever you are given anything from spirit, treasure it, never brush it aside....and remember there is always a reason. This one has stayed with me for many many years!
