Okay ladies, I’m still processing what happened on Sunday.
I’ve posted about it before but here’s a small background: I lost my brother and his long-time girlfriend about 4 1/2 years ago to a heroin overdose. They were both 22 years old. They both died the same night. It was mother’s weekend down in Athens and my mother is the one that found them dead in the bathroom. 23 months later my mom died. She drank herself to death, never got over finding my brother and his girlfriend like that. It was not fun.
So on Sunday I went to a couple’s shower for one of my brother’s really good friends from high school. He has lived in Colorado for the past five years and I happened to see on Facebook that they were doing this in an apartment complex across the street from me so I decided to stop in and say hello (It was a public facebook accouncement inviting anyone that knew them, so no I was not crashing their shower) I hung out for about two hours and got caught up with everyone then decided to leave.
On my way out my brother’s friend’s mom stops me. I have never met this woman before. She asks if I am Chris’s sister, I say yes. She goes on to say that she is a medium. She wanted me to know that he is right there behind her and he loves me and is so excited and wanted to congratulate me (like I said, I’ve never met her, nor did I have an opportunity to say I was engaged). She said he wanted me to know that there is nothing that anyone could have done (I used to blame myself because they invited me down that weekend and I declined). At this point I was sobbing like a crazy person.
THEN she says he is surrounded by family.. and my mom is there too. She didn’t know my mom had died. She actually kind of had this look of shock/surprise once she realized it was her. She said my mom kept asking about a locket or a charm that was on some ribbon. I’m putting all of their pictures in little charms and tying them onto my bouquet with some ribbon.
She and I talked for about ten minutes. I cried a lot. It was really intense, but now that I’ve had some time to think about it and process it all I have an overwhelming sense of peace, which I haven’t felt in a long time. Sorry this is long, I just wanted to share my experience. Has anyone else here encountered a medium?

I have not had an experience like this but I’m glad you did. It sounds like you beat yourself up over things you had no control over and weren’t able to move on. I’m so glad this has given you a newfound sense of peace.

Thanks ladies. I just had to share. I wish everyone had a chance to experience something like this after losing a loved one.

This post brought tears to my eyes.. My father died 14 years ago this year and having the wedding coming up has really brought back the pain of losing him. I think it will be much harder on my Mom. She visits his grave EVERY Sunday for the past 13 years… I never believed in mediums but this post gives me hope that maybe I could meet someone and just for her/him to tell my Dad I love him so much and I miss him every single day.
We will be saying a prayer for family that won’t be there for our wedding, as well as have seats reserved for them for the ceremony.
Hugs for you and God Bless!

This is amazing. I’m glad you got to experience this! Did you happen to get her information? My friend meets with a medium about once a year here in CBus and it always leaves her with an amazing sense of calm.
I’m really sorry to hear about your family, this is something no one should have to go through.

This gave me the chills!
I am so glad you feel such peace now. I am hoping (& from what it sounds) that it was a good experience as crazy as it may have seemed!

that is crazy! I’m so very sorry for your losses. No one should have to go through that. I hope this woman gave you some closure you may have needed to move forward in a positive way.

I’ve honestly wanted to visit a medium so badly. I lost my step mom last year, and I just feel like it would give me some peace to know she’s ok. I’m so glad you had this experience, it actually made me tear up.

Wow, that is a crazy story, but I am glad that it brought you something positive. I bought Coach wristlets for my two bridesmaids to walk down the aisle with and when you buy something from Coach the receipt shows the customer name at the top. The customer name listed on the receipt was my sister’s name, she died in 1989. I took it as a sign that she was still with me, or that she wanted to be a bridesmaid. I’m going to carry the receipt down the aisle with me.

Wow I think that it is really great that you ran into her, and I feel like that was meant to be for you. I’m glad you feel a sense of peace and closure

I’ve never experienced that but I am glad you feel at peace.

This story is interesting. I’m glad that your are surrounded by your loved ones who are no longer with you. At one point during my wedding day my bouqet fell over while I was getting ready, I like to think it was my grandfather who I miss everyday making his presence there know. I’ve never been to a medium but I totally believe in this sort of thing.
