Tuesday, September 6th~
I missed my flight at the Oakland airport, but luckily I was able to get a ticket for the next day for free. And maybe was Divinely timed & everything is perfect anyway.
I was stopped by some Christians that were preaching on the street. They asked if I needed any prayers. At first I said “No, I’m fine”.I had been listening to them preach from accross the street while waiting at the bus stop. And I was resisting hearing the unavoidable speeches and wishing I could get away so they wouldn’t try to recruit me or something. Then I realized my bus was on the other side of the street… The same side that they were on. I crossed the street and stopped at a to-go restaurant window and bought a coffee and a banana.
After I made my purchase, of course, one girl and one guy from the Christian crew approached me and asked if they could pray with me. I thought to myself, ‘well this is something I do anyway, so why not try it?’ They asked if they could place their hands on me and I said yes. The girl started praying to “the Lord God.” And yes I do believe in God. I also heard them talking about Jesus earlier in their preaching. and I believe in Jesus as an Ascended Master too. After missing the flight earlier that day, I felt a bit out of sorts. So I admitted I could use some divine assistance.
During the prayer, she said things like “Dear God, show this girl how beautiful she is. Clear away any past hurt. Help her live her life purpose.” I could really feel the energy, and my right hand shaking. Nothing she was saying seemed to go against anything I already believe in, or would truly ask for myself. Afterwards I mentioned that I practice reiki, and explained that it is a light touch hands on healing method. The girl had not heard of it, but the boy had! They asked for my phone number but luckily I could escape gracefully by saying that I live in Philadelphia.
With the help of Google Maps, I was able to find a picture of the exact location where this occurred.
The moral of the story is that, even though I no longer feel like Christianity is a religion for me (or any one religion), I realize that that doesn’t mean it should be for no one! As my family still identifies as Christian, I had been feeling confused about where I fit in the picture. At times I even felt guilty for being so directly connected to Spirit. But this instance in Oakland proved that there are some Christians that may be very connected to Spirit as well.
Once I arrived back home to Philadelphia, I attended the I Can Do It Conference put on by Hay House Publishers. I had planned on attending the Teal Swan talk on Sunday, but as I walked past the room for Kyle Gray, I felt very good, high vibrational energy. I felt something pulling me towards that room! (Not out of my control of course). But it was one of those moments where I know I was meant to go with the flow, and change what I had planned in my mind. He spoke of how he used to be a Sunday school teacher. Now he is a Psychic and Medium and Angel Communicator. He also explained that the Angels are the direct messengers of God, and they are available for everyone to communicate with. No matter your race, age, religion, sexuality or lifestyle. He also explained that angels are pure energy. The images we see of angels are human depictions that have been translated into our third dimension. That’s why one image of Archangel Michael may have blonde hair and another may have brown. This also gave me some clarity, as to my own connection with the angels, as it seems so far that I don’t SEE them, but I FEEL their energy. This may change in the future!
