Spirits talk to us

July 9, 2013

SAMSUNGThis is what our roses looked like in the two spring-summers we’ve lived here.

In May, a medium was at my house. She told me that when she came out to our family room to pet our older dog, she’d noticed my late mother out by the roses.  Later, she told me my mother said she would communicate with me through flowers, much the way Victorians did. And in fact, Victorians were fond of sending secret messages through an elaborate language of flowers.

This is what that same bush looked like in May of this year.

And this is what they look like 6 weeks later:

The red roses are gone. Poof!

Medium John Edward always says that when our loved ones on the other side want to send love, they show him red roses. Red roses also signified love to Victorians.

Spirits speak to us; we’ve just got to pay attention.

    Hi, Carol,

    This blog really hit home. As a matter of fact, a few months ago, I posted a pic on FB about this little patch of red roses that appeared out of nowhere in my bushes in the backyard. My Dad has been gone almost 20 years, and I have been missing him terribly, as this has been a rough year for me. He was my rock – my family’s rock. Anyway, perhaps your blog explains a lot, as I have been calling out to him/ so to speak. So, I will take that bundle of roses that suddenly appeared as a big hug from my Dad.

    Thanks for posting this!

      We’re just not used to things that are not based on “fact”, you know? So, it’s easy to say, “well, just a coincidence.” I googled all over to try to find an explanation for those roses, which I did not graft and do not appear anywhere else in my yard or nearby. This is the only explanation that makes sense, and when she said that, I got it. They disappeared as quickly as they arrived, too. So I think it’s your Dad, too!

    I believe this to be true. I think the key is to be aware and to pay attention. When we do that, I think we can hear them through our eyes or our thoughts. I can feel my Mom and Dad at times when I publish one of my stories where they are the main characters. I can almost hear their laughter at my memory. 🙂

    How spooky–and beautiful! I will hope that someday my mom will send me a message through red gladiolas, which she loved.

  5. Your message – with pictures – was beautiful! Yes, I do believe we can get communicated with by passed loved ones. The key is to see the signs!

    Nice! And smile inducing.

  7. While I don’t believe a good percentage of what I’ve watched in psychic’s shows, and read in most books; I do consider myself to have spiritual beliefs. I definitely agree that there are signs that come through, and most of them are very subtle. There were definitely a few strange things that happened after my sister passed away suddenly last August, that whether they were or not, I chose to see as messages from her…I figure even if I’m wrong, it would be something I would never regret being wrong about.
    Thank you for sharing your story!!

      I agree that not every psychic is the real deal, but I’ve been lucky enough to meet a few who are. Here’s the way I look at it: for a long time everyone believed the world was flat. They had nothing in their frame of reference that told them it wasn’t. I believe we are really primitive in our own way and that there are things that we do not have the knowledge yet to understand. Still, I see so much happening in the world that leads me to believe the Divine wants us to advance our understanding of our souls’ potential. It’s a great mystery, but there are clues and cues if we choose to pick up on them. I have to also agree with you about regret. 😉 Thanks for commenting!
