A new journey begins

Why am I here - a newbie. I guess I was looking for an anonymous forum to share my experiencest. By the very nature of my desire for privacy, I will change some of the details in the following so that I am not recognised. Should any of my friends either now or in the future, recognise me, please hold thy tongues

A little about me. I am in my early 40s, divorced and have been gradually sensing more than just the three dimensions in which we exist. My work is very technical and in it I have to be extremely cynical about anything other than hard facts. In my family, I was brought up to serve & chose the Air Force during late 80s and have been a volunteer paramedic in one form or another for many years.

About 7 years ago, on a blind date I met a lovely lady called Sarah. We chatted for a while - as you do - before she excused herself to visit the washrooms part way through the evening. Upon returning, Sarah said very seriously that she had something to tell me. She said that she was a medium and that I had a very strong spirit looking out for me. So strong that the spirit was insistent on making her presence felt, no matter what and indeed had followed Sarah into the washrooms and into the same cubicle. Naturally this was not something I expected to hear on a first date and so initially, whilst not insulting Sarah, I was mentally somewhat sceptical. Sarah went on to say that the spirit was there as one of my guardians and wished to let me know that she was there for me and would support me. Whilst Sarah and I tried dating for a while, we ended up as very close friends and remain so to this day. At one stage she read my aura which she said was grey.

Two years later, I found myself leaving the office early for no reason other than it was a nice day. I have several routes home and at the end of the road I chose one at random through the forest. This route is a fast but narrow blacktop with a couple of long straight stretches. I soon had my old truck running way past 50mph. Part way along one of the stretches, I found myself slowing down just for the hell of it. I wasn't in any hurry as I had quit the office early and it was a nice day. The two cars behind me, one an open top MG and the other some small Japanese thing closed up behind. At this stage things start to be a little less than ordinary. I found that I had drifted into the middle of the two lane and continued to slow to less than 30mph when suddenly a dozen cattle burst through the bushes onto the pavement. These beasts were running wild in an area where there simply aren't fields. Needless to say instinct took over and a good amount of rubber was laid on the pavement as I skidded to a stop. The two cars behind stopped too. The animals bashed into the side of the truck as they ran down the side off into the forest. Telling Sarah about it later that evening, she said that my guardians had lent me to protect someone else - probably in the small cars behind. Reasons: I quit early for no reason, let chance choose my route, had slowed down for no reason forcing the cars behind to slow; and my truck (suffering no damage) could take all the punishment. She then asked me to think where the small cars would have been had I not been there.

A couple of years later I suffered a massive stress attack and walked out of my job. Lots of reasons for the stress. I was sent to a health resort and while there decided to get a massage on my bad leg. At this stage I was in a bad way. Periodically shaking, hardly talking to anyone, not eating-all the classic symptoms. The massage therapist, called Helen, started working my bad muscles but then asked if there was anything else wrong. I told her I had been sent to the region to recover from stress and Helen offered massage my head to help. As soon as she placed her hands on my head I felt a massive infusion of energy and a massive release of stress. Tears flowed (always a little embarrassing for a man) and a great weight was lifted from me. After my therapy, whilst I was shaky for a few days, I was able to return to work. Helen, I am told, went sick the following day and I never had the chance to see her or to thank her for what she did ever again.

Present day, I am dating again (and still as successful!). I meet a lady called Nancy and we get on very well. After chatting for a few days online and on the phone, we eventually meet and spend the afternoon together. During the day she claims to see auras and says that mine is a deep and clear red (I haven't seen Sarah in a while and have not had her opinion on this) with a brilliant white light in the centre. Without relaying my earlier experiences, I ask what that meant (always the cynic) and Nancy tells me that I must have been given a gift by someone probably in the last three years or so. She also promptly asks me who David is as she has to get a message to him. Yes, Nancy could have got hold of my mobile, accessed my contacts list and selected a name at random but I don't think so. Yes I know I should learn to take things on faith - I spend too long in the office being cynical. I promise to pass the message and and Nancy says that I appear to have the ability to act as a portal when I relax my mind.

Today I pass the message on to David. He goes very quiet and then says that he has no idea what that means but he will do in time. David then asked if I had an interest in collecting bonsai trees (which I do - a large collection, but he never knew this) and then went on to say that in 1998 - years before either he or I worked for the same company - before we were even in the same state in fact - he was told that he would have a friend who was really into his bonsai trees with my name.

Ah rats, ran out of space. OK, a double post coming up then

The rest of my ramblings

Even the most cynical thoughts I have are now being challenged regularly. I still do not claim to have any special abilities, be able to see auras or have seen or heard (direct) from my spirit guides, guardians or any other spirits. When I have been in Europe visiting supposedly haunted sites, I have felt nothing - whether I tried to or not. I have found myself occasionally talking to my "guides" - but that could just be perfectly ordinary madness!

There is a lot of falsehood surrounding spirituality and for those who want to believe, I can see how they can be led astray. I have now read reports claiming that under past life hypnosis there have been no demonstrable new facts that could not have previously been absorbed into the subconscious by watching a TV documentary or reading a book. But equally there are the unexplained stories of, for example, children having knowledge of a former family that they supposedly lived with in a mountain village only a few years earlier - knowledge that would not have been documented and relayed to the child in any form whatsoever. So I am keeping an open mind.

So why am I on the forum? Why am I writing this? I guess this is a way to get my own thoughts in order. A way to reach out to others who would not scorn or mock me but who would understand and maybe relate to what I have experienced (are the cattle stampeeding at an old truck a regular occurrence that I just don't know about for example. Maybe it is a country thing - I was born in a city - some form of initiation ceremony to see how I react!) Maybe this is a way of asking what I ought to do next - a way of asking people who are not in the business of spirituality for their own ends - to make a living, for example - telling people what they want to hear. Yes, I trust implicitly Sarah. I want to trust Nancy (though I hardly know her at this stage). I have been told I have an old soul. I have been told I have received a gift and if so, I definitely do not wish to squander it.

Well, that is where I am. Feel free to comment, joke or advise. I cannot say my experiences are unique, special or even posted in the right place in the forum. The above just is.
