Tracy & Lori

During Lori’s battle the family took turns taking care of her in Penticton. In no time at all the family had realized that this was going to be Lori’s final battle. There was no escaping death. Tracy and Heather spent many hours searching for guidance to help Lori die with dignity.  It was during this painful time that Tracy became intrigued with questions about the afterlife.  She had always believed that there’s more than just our physical body, but she was looking for proof.

Lori’s final days provided the family with some very interesting insights. Lori often had one foot in the physical realm and one foot in the spiritual dimension.  At one point Lori shared the fact that there was curling and golfing in the afterlife, she has witnessed it. This knowledge elated Lori!  These were two sports that Lori loved. She had given them up due to her sickness. She was happy to realize that the spiritual world would be giving them back to her.

Nearing the end of Lori’s life the sisters spent time helping her plan the final days. They wanted Lori to have all of her earthly wishes heard and respected. Through Lori’s life she had grown to love purple pansies almost as much as her Grandma Moen did. The family would make sure that this request was honored. They would see to it that these delicate flowers would be in attendance at her funeral.

The Three Sisters – Pansy Garden – 1974

On April 28th, 2009 Lori passed away peacefully with her two sisters at her side. Shortly after she passed Tracy and her younger sister Heather went shopping to fulfill her purple pansy request. It was late April and there was a shortage of pansies.  They ended up finding six quite pathetic looking pansy plants. They knew Lori’s spirit wouldn’t mind.  Pathetic or not, they needed them for her service.

The following spring Tracy was blessed with a pansy connection. Tracy had discovered purple pansies growing in a bed of gravel beside her home. This spot was designed to inhibit any plant growth.  But that wouldn’t stop these pansies from coming back year after year.  Tracy knew that it was her dear sister Lori making the connection.

After finding the pansies on the side of her home Tracy’s curiosity peeked to a new level in regards to the afterlife and spirit world. She went through many stages of grieving the loss of Lori. She wanted to know if her sister was okay. She wanted to connect with Lori’s spirit in a more intimate way. She was looking for answers to what really happens when we crossover. Tracy began watching episode after episode of Long Island Medium with Theresa Caputo. She felt that Theresa had such an amazing gift. The connections this psychic has with the spirit world is so uplifting and reassuring.

Christmas December 2014, Tracy’s daughters gave her a very special Christmas gift, a private reading with a psychic medium by the name of Leoralea. They couldn’t have picked a better gift for their mother. Tracy was hoping to get some answers to our human mystery:  Is there life after death? And would her sister Lori connect with her?

Tracy booked the appointment on Lori’s birthday, January 13, 2015. She wanted to make the most of this experience and there wouldn’t be a better date.  She spent hour researching ways to make the much needed connection. Tracy meditated daily and invited Lori to join her during the psychic reading. Tracy repeated questions daily to Lori in hopes of getting the answers she needed. Tracy did this faithfully for the weeks leading up to the reading. This exercise would help the medium connect to Lori’s soul and in turn help answer any questions Tracy had for Lori. The medium would not know the questions on which Tracy meditated. Only Tracy would know what she had asked Lori; she wouldn’t reveal any information to the medium or to anyone else in her life.

In Part III next week, read about Lori’s surprising answers to her sister Tracy’s questions.

Om – I Will Hold You

May 2013 – The Zwingli Farm

Proof Of HeavenI placed the book down on the counter in front of me and I let the tears fall. Brennon, our son, has been  home visiting for a couple days. He walks over, gives me a kiss on the cheek and gently rubs my back. My emotions have been like a roller coaster for the past month. I’m still struggling with what I’ve been shown and I’m so glad my family is supporting me through this life-altering experience. I’m feeling absolutely overwhelmed and I’m searching for the answers to where I was, what it all means and what I should be doing with what I’ve learned.

I have just had an aha moment linked to a book I started reading a couple days ago. The book is called Proof of Heaven written by Eben Alexander, M.D. The near death experience (NDE) I had has me reaching for all kinds of resources to read about the afterlife as I try to figure out what exactly happened to me.  In Proof of Heaven, the author mentions the term “Om” in place of the name God or Creator. This word alone has hit me like a ton of bricks.

Ever since I’ve crossed over I’ve been experiencing a strange but beautiful sensation while falling asleep at night. Just before my body becomes totally relaxed, and even before I’m sound asleep, I feel myself gently lift off the bed and a soft rocking motion begins. It’s at this stage of relaxation/sleep that I speak out loud the word “Om.” I don’t remember anything that happens after I have said this. I wake the next morning after having an amazing sleep and I’m somewhat puzzled as to why I keep saying “Om.”  Why am I saying this word on the cusp of sleep?

I have heard the word referred to during yoga sessions. I do realize that it’s a mantra that helps people connect to their inner loving source during meditation. I’m just not sure why it’s coming out of my mouth just as I fall into the unconscious state of sleep. This has been happening every night for the past month. I asked my husband, Trent, if he hears me say something just before I fall asleep. He says he does, but he’s just not sure of the word that I’m saying. He says that I’m saying it very quietly and he can’t make it out. I, however, do know the word I’m speaking and before reading Eben Alexander’s explanation I was unsure of what it could mean to me.

I glance down at the book and realize that Eben has just explained another meaning of this word to me, and I’m blown away. Tears continue to run down my cheek because the explanation is almost more than I can grasp. I now realize that I’m softly calling our Creator’s name as I’m falling asleep. I realize how beautiful it is that my soul, just at the onset of sleep, is acknowledging its maker. My soul is very much aware of what I’m doing but my physical body doesn’t have a clue why this is occurring.

Blog - Heavenly HandI think back to the previous night when I whispered Om ; at the time I was hardly conscience enough to realize it. I also understand now that the rocking motion that I’m feeling as I drift off to sleep is Om holding me. I think back to a spiritual picture my parents had hanging in their home. The following verse was inscribed over Gods hands in this picture: “I will hold you in the palm of my hands.” I now know beyond a shadow of a doubt – this is what I’ve been experiencing. An absolute peace comes over me and I wipe my tears away.

This is the first time Brennon has seen me since my surgery. He’s home for a weeklong visit. Trent and I love the time he spends with us. Over the course of a week he has listened to the entire NDE, and I have explained to him everything that has happened to me. It’s been a real eye opener for all of us.

I know over the course of the next few weeks, months and years Om will continue to share the secrets of the universe with me. I have been crying tears of joy for the past few weeks; I’ve been given the chance to learn more about this life we’re living. I’m more than grateful for this favourable outcome.

I still have the opportunity to hold my babies and sleep beside my husband. I do also realize that when their time comes and they are called home, they will be held in the palm of Om’s hands, and the spirits on the other side will welcome their arrival with unconditional love. We need to find solace in knowing that as we mourn the loss of a loved one on earth, heaven and all the angels will be cheering on their arrival.

Ask, listen and be watchful,
