Lori’s playful answers

 

January 13th 2015 – The Connection

Tracy was relaxing into the reading and the psychic had made the contact with Lori. Tracy had assumed that Lori her sister would come through with a reference of purple pansies, and that’s where Tracy’s mind focused.  The medium, however, kept mentioning the word “willow.” This had Tracy puzzled; she couldn’t understand what willow could mean.  Leoralea mentioned the words “willow tree” and this still had Tracy questioning the connection. The medium then glanced down and closed her eyes. She said that Lori was showing her a vase with “pussy willows” in it. Tracy began to cry. She had forgotten the pussy willows.

The family had lived in northern Manitoba when the girls were little. These three sisters looked forward to the pussy willows in the spring. The pussy willows gave them more joy than Christmas or their birthdays.

The February before Lori passed away Tracy had gone down to the farmer’s market for her weekly shopping. Danny, a local farmer who had a stand in the market handed Tracy a bunch on pussy willows and said, “You need these, Tracy.” Tracy had shopped at Danny’s stand many times. This was such a kind gesture and the timing was perfect. Tracy knew immediately that she would forward them onto her sick sister Lori. Tracy attached a note encouraging Lori that with the spring season approaching there would be something to look forward to—more pussy willows.

When Lori received the package she called Tracy in tears. She was so thankful for the gift. Lori placed the willows on her kitchen table and that’s where they stayed until her passing. After Lori passed Tracy put the pussy willows in a beautiful wooden box and placed them in the casket. Her final gift to her sister.

Lori, Tracy & Heather

The medium provided Tracy with many accurate insights to Lori’s life as it was on earth. She was spot on in regards to Lori’s two sons and her marital issues. She knew things about Lori’s nieces and nephews, parents and Tracy’s current life situation. Tracy now realized that Lori had been with her all along. Lori had been watching over her ever since her physical death. Lori had answered almost all of Tracy’s questions and did it without judgment. But there was one question she had asked Lori that still needed answered.

In Tracy’s meditations prior to the psychic reading Tracy had asked Lori a question which involved me, Shelley Zwingli. Tracy had asked Lori if she had seen me in heaven, and if she had, Lori was supposed to give reference to a dime. I was surprised that Tracy would include me in such a test of faith. As the time ticked away with the reading Tracy had forgotten the question about me. But Lori had not!

What follows is the word-for-word transcript of what happened next:

Medium Leoralea:

“She says yes, I’m done for now. So I just want you to know I am with you. I plan on watching over you for a very long time, until you are done here. So trust those little things that I am doing to get your attention. You are not going crazy, I am really with you.”

<Pause>

Medium Leoralea:

“Hmmmm, the other thing Lori just showed me, she just went like that (medium makes a motion of flipping a coin in the air.) I am seeing a dime go up in the air and land on the ground. Lori says “Okay. That’s her answer.”

After Tracy shared this event with me she asked me if I had seen Lori in heaven. Unfortunately I didn’t see her at close range. The only place I truly feel Lori may have been was in the pond of water at the base of the waterfall swimming. There were many happy souls there the day that I crossed over.  The laughter I remember hearing was joy beyond our human understanding.  Lori could have very easily been there swimming in that heavenly pond. Someday we will know the answer.

The souls that have gone before us want us to be happy and they will figure out many ways to connect with us to help ease our pain. We need to muster up the faith to ask the deep questions like Tracy did. You will be amazed at the answers that these spirits will reply with. It’s because of people like Tracy that the world will come to learn that eternal love is the answer to all of our questions. Love will never let us down. Love never ends.

Many thanks again to Tracy for sharing her amazing story.

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.

Today we send our love and birthday wishes to you Lori.

Thank-you for this spiritual connection.

Lori Jean McArthur January 13, 1963 – April 28, 2009

There are certain people that come and go from our lives. With these connections we evolve as humans and spiritual beings.  Some people enter our lives for a short period and others stay a while longer. Every connection we make is needed to help teach and complete a lesson we need to learn. Our soul is always in the classroom of life. Some of the lessons we learn from the people we encounter are taught while they’re alive and other lessons are taught after they have passed into the spirit world.

This blog post is of the latter. The experience I will share with you today has surpassed anything I could have ever hoped for or imagined. My human nature still struggles with the closeness of the spirit world and how willing they are to confirm that their existence is within our grasp. While my human nature questions, my soul knows better. It embraces and trusts the loving power that makes this connection divine.

I asked for, and received, the permission and collaboration of my friend Tracy (Nuttall) Towers to present this remarkable story to you.

An unexpected call

My cell phone rings and I glance down at the number. Oh for flip sake, I think, another telemarketer. I answer my phone with a somewhat rough, gruff Hello. On the other end is a soft-spoken voice. I’m pretty sure I recognize this person. Hey Shell, is that you?  It’s my friend Tracy that I had hung out with in high school. I apologize for answering so abruptly.  She is calling from an unlisted number that I hadn’t recognized. Tracy (Nuttall) Towers had just received my email in regards to the start up of my blog site and she sounded very excited for me. We chatted for a bit about my book project and the blog and then she asked me if I had a few extra minutes to talk. She had something serious to share with me. Tracy had regretted not calling me sooner. I told her I had all the time in the world to listen.

Tracy and I have a connection that is so beautifully simple. We can pick up exactly where we left off. Whether it is three months or four years down the road. Our friendship has no expectations. We both know that time will not change our connection with each other. It’s a relationship based on love alone…no strings attached.

The last time I had spoken with Tracy was the previous summer. She had been in Melfort visiting family. I’m so thankful she had taken the time to visit me. We had talked about her older sister Lori and Lori’s battle with cancer. Ever since Lori passed their family has been heartbroken. We cried a lot that day but we both knew that the visit was also healing. We talked about my NDE and how it has changed my life and the life of my family. I also shared with her the miracle that just keeps on happening; since my father’s passing he’s lightened our heavy hearts by leaving us a trail of dimes. Sharing the dime connection with Tracy helped to lighten the mood and we did have a few good laughs that day too.  I really wanted to give her hope in an afterworld.  I know Tracy is a believer, but I also know there are times in our lives when everything seems to be falling apart and we question the existence of a loving Maker.

Tracy’s Story

Tracy lost her dear sister Lori to cancer in 2009. Lori was the eldest of three beautifulLori Nuttall School Pic daughters that Rod and Carol Nuttall raised. The Nuttall family had lived in Melfort, Saskatchewan for three years from 1977-1980. While living in Melfort, I had the privilege of calling the two older sisters (Lori and Tracy) my friends. The third daughter was Heather; she was a few years younger than us. Lori was full of life and always a pleasure to be around. She was stunningly beautiful to look at but that’s not where the beauty stopped; she truly had a heart of gold. She would do anything to help family or a friend in a time of need. Her smile and carefree giggle could light up any room. Back in my teenage years I truly wanted to be more like Lori.

After high school Lori married Greg McArthur. Through this union the couple had two sons, John and Todd. They had also moved out to British Columbia to be closer to family members.  Lori was a Certified General Accountant in Penticton, BC up until she took ill.   Sad news was given to Lori on her 45th birthday. She was diagnosed with Stage Four colon cancer.

In Part II next week, read about Lori’s final battle, and her sister Tracy’s search.
