I was about 17 years of age. Mom had a regular visit from Mary one of the locals. Mary spent most of her time alone as she had no kids and her husband was a travelling Evangelist Minister. As far back as I can remember I never met him.
I was aware she was a very lonely older lady and like to visit our family. The community considered her slightly touched. I don't think so, just odd. Her Christmas Tree was left up all year. She's arrive an hour or so before dinner, knowing that mom would included her. She'd have to share what ever what being made. She always complimented mom as she was grateful to be included. When dusk arrived early mom would insist someone had to walk her home.
During one of her visits she told us that she had tripped and fallen and now required a cane for assistance. He husband told her the cane was an issue because of her carelessness. This made her feel very emotional and guilty. I walked her home that night.
Mary's dad had passed away a number of years earlier and told he spoke to me and said to remind Mary that" IT WAS AN ACCIDENT,NOT CARELESSNESS. YOUR HUSBAND IS AN INCONSIDERATE MAN, STOP LISTENING TO HIM.HE WANTS YOU TO FEEL BAD."
This was the first time I admitted and spoke out loud about messages from spirit. I told Mary no one would believe her if she shared what I told her, as they all thought she was crazy. I was aware the message gave her great comfort and released the guilt. Many times over the years she told me how much my information had tremendously helped her..
So spirit reminded me that this was the first time I acknowledged spirit out loud helped another to heal emotional wounds. Yes, that was the beginning. I am still doing my best. Love what I do. in love and light
Always leave people better than you found them
