A Visit During Centering Prayer
Last Wednesday, March 8 while at Centering Prayer at The Mercy Center, I had two unexpected visitors to the sacred place I go when I meditate. My paternal grandmother (Nana) who passed in 1973 and my Aunt Bet. I’ve believed for awhile now that Aunt Bet took over for Nana when she passed. I also believe this was planned before I incarnated. For those new to Wisdom and Life, I am a firm believer that some aspects of our lives are mapped out for us before we become human, in other words, predestination.
I kind of think seeing them both together in my meditation is a confirmation of that. As I sat at the point at Blissville Pond in Lisbon, Connecticut, (The sacred place I go when I meditate) my Nana silently walked over to me and sat down beside me on my right. She never uttered a word. She simply sat beside me. I felt her presence and glanced at her a few times and felt loved and secure.
Aunt Bet came next and sat down on my left. Both just smiled and stayed with me for a few more moments, never speaking a word. Then they got up and walked away. Seeing them together makes it difficult for my spiritual mind to not consider the connection. I’m more convinced now as I write this column that there definitely was a succession. That one followed the other. Especially since Nana came before Aunt Bet.
I felt blessed that these two important people in my life at one point came to me and stayed with me for a short while.
I know some of you may be thinking:
Uh oh, Chris is going off The Deep End again. And that’s alright. I believe what I believe. We all make up our own reality. And my spiritual reality tells me this is what I saw and what I believe. I felt loved, comforted and blessed that these two important women visited me tonight.
Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this?
As an addendum:
Sometime Wednesday night while I slept, my Nana and Aunt Bet returned in a dream. As with Centering Prayer, they did not speak, but just seeing them together again reaffirmed my impression that there is definitely a bridge between them.

Blessings to you.
Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;
We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying. For there truly is no end.

Chris, I am so appreciative of your mentioning Mercy by the Sea’s Centering Prayer group. The link you gave above was to the Burlingame Mercy Center.

Oh, what an incredible experience, Chris! And that you felt comforted and at peace is simply amazing. I believe God blessed you in a special way through this.
