Several times, I have had incredible experiences where I have recieved messages or guidance from beyond the veil (a few were so extraordinary that I included them in a book I wrote) and its happened again! I'm just in awe of this magical Universe! This time it involved a dream.
Heres what happened, tell me what you think and if you have ever had anything similiar happen to you.
On March 5th, I went to New Smyrna Beach (east coast Florida) to visit the grave sites of my mother and both sets of grandparents who are all buried in the same town but two different cemeteries. I usually try to go by there twice a year to replace the flowers and pay my respect. Since we are eternal beings, the only thing that I am paying my respect to is to my memories of them and their old physical shells. But nonetheless, it seems to be my position in the family to do this task because, as far as I know, no one else in the family ever goes.
So, with my a fist full of cheap silk flowers in hand I arrived at the first stop. My father's parent's grave site. I remarked to my young son how my father's mother passed away a few weeks before my wedding day (April 1993). I noticed her headstone only showed the years of her life (1910-1993) and not the months. Thinking that she must have passed in March but I didn't recall the date. I wasn't close to my father's mother like I was to my maternal grandmother, for whom I can recite all her earthly dates off the top of my head.
As synchronicities and perfect timing goes - I had also begun to read a book that intrigued me the moment I saw it. It's called True Miracles with Genealogy- Help From Beyond the Veil- compiled by Anne Bradshaw in which some members of the church of Latter-Day Saints tell their stories about recieving similiar guidance to uncover information about their ancestors. Honestly, I was so intrigued, because naively I didn't know other people had similar genealogy experiences to mine. (Which brings up a whole other line of thought that I am still contemplating and if I figure it out, I'll tell about it. It has to do with the tradition that LDS members do as part of their religious practice - called temple work. I don't know enough about it yet (I'm not LDS) and will research it a bit more. )
Moving on to what happened...After returning home from the beach, I was asleep and dreaming on Monday morning. I was dreaming that I was watching television. On the screen was a show about ancestry and they were showing a family tree diagram. I was trying to read the names when I recognized my fathers parents. Then my paternal grandmother's photo was shown, a photo I do have in real-life. Excited, I paused the TV and called my family in to see it.
In real-life, I was abruptly awaken by my cell phone text notification and beep. I rolled over and looked at the clock, it was 3:33am (a master number and is said to be a message from your angels). The text said
"You have the wrong #. My birthday is not March 1."
This must have been a response from a text I sent a friend a week ago on her birthday (March 1) but she responded immediately that morning. It was obviously a glitch and was sent to another cell phone. But regardless, I instantly felt a connection between the dream and the wake-up text, especially since I was still so connected energetically to the dream at that moment.
I went back to sleep and after I woke later, it was still with me, strongly. So, I went to our ancestry.com page and looked up her specific birth and death date. It was in fact,
b. March 3, 1910- d. March 9, 1993
So, the anniversary of her death was today. As I was typing this- an ancestry.com commercial came on the TV. Amazing. Do the sychronicities ever stop coming!? lol
MARCH 11, 2011 AND IT CONTINUES!....I was just telling my father last night about this ^^ experience. It really freaked him out when I told him what the text message read ("MY BIRTHDAY IS NOT MARCH 1")--
BECAUSE HE SAID HIS MOTHER NEVER KNEW WHEN HER REAL BIRTHDAY WAS!! It was a huge ordeal that shook her later in life. Her real birthday wasn't on the 1st like she had always celebrated it! (like the text said!) She finally found out when she was getting social security at age 65 that she had been celebrating it on the wrong day.
I did not know anything about this but I had tried to verify her birthdate right after I had the dream that morning b/c I had a feeling that this was what she was trying to convey to me. I couldn't find her birth record. But prior to all this happening, I had never heard them talk about within my family.
