Hi Sara, I am hoping you can help me. I have seen and talked to spirits since I was very young. I will usually get a message of a coming birth or death in our family ahead of time. I've never been afraid of this gift and I'm still not.
Recently my oldest sister died and shortly afterwards I discovered that my dad(may he rest in peace), was not my birth father and that my actual birth grandmother passed away this year at age 96 on my wedding anniversary. I met her once as a child, not knowing who she was to me.
On the night I found out she had died, I started praying about what I should do with this information and for help finding my father because her obituary indicated he and both of my uncles preceded her in death. A call to the funeral home had us find out he is still alive. I'm 46 years old and my birth father never had any other children, but he did marry later in life and move away from his family.
The first night I was touched I was awake. Hands were put on my feet and a voice said "don't give up, don't stop looking for him" I went right to sleep. The next time I was touched I could feel my bed sink as if someone set beside me. I was fretful beforehand, but then I was touched on my foot again and eased into sleep.
Just about every night for months now I have prayed for guidance about my father. I did find him, but he lives very far away. Although I have pictures of us and we look exactly the same, because of my mom and the time that's passed, he's in denial. I have and will continue to write him and send him a card or something, and of course pray for guidance.
The more guidance I pray for the more frequent the touches or tugs on my feet come. I'm not scared, just never having been touched, it's different. Also, I can't see who is touching me. All of my other encounters I have seen and spoke to, usually at length.
My niece who is 7 now has also experienced this gift since birth. She is able to talk to loved ones who passed before her birth. She's recently been visited by a boy who frightened her. He won't say anything, just stands at her bed staring. She won't turn her lights off now. I'm the only one she is comfortable talking with about her experiences. I witnessed her first when she was an infant talking to her grandfather, my dad.
I don't know exactly what I'm asking you, but if you have words to offer, I'm grateful. Thank you in advance. - Karen
There is lot in your letter, so I will focus on what I think is the most important message for you to understand. Some people don't have much "veil" between this realm and the other dimensions of this multidimensional Universe. Some are born that way; some develop the skill through study; others experience a traumatic situation that opens the door for them.
For you, you've been born this way, and then it's expanded even further. As you reach to contact your birth father, the departed ancestors on that side to the family, his and your family, are able to make contact, to reach beyond the veil, to alert you that they would like you to continue this process of healing.
I would say: they are not really "touching" you in the way we do in human realm. Spirits can move energy to make things move, or to make the air feel different on your skin, and so forth. They are just trying to get your attention.
I would suggest you do some direct work with the spirit community, with my course Release Yourself from Family Karma. This will help you get to the root of some of the karmic issues, it will help move things toward more healing, and it will help these active spirits relax.
There is no danger here: it is all about love, on both this side of the veil on and on the Departed side; about wanting connection to be expanded and healed between birth daughter and father.
