I’ve been drawing a card a day with my new Oracle of Shadows & Light. Last night I asked a question, wanting to know the whereabouts of someone. Here’s who came up:
The Snow Angel’s message is basically: I’m here, pay attention, I’ve been giving you signs all over the place. Open your eyes already!!
Now this may seem like a strange answer, but to me it makes perfect sense. And I’ll admit I had a very emotional reaction.
From the book:
You have already received very definite, clear signs, ones which you have asked for, over and over again. The Snow Angel will reply again, but it is the message you are refusing to hear – not her presence that is denied you. It is your own fear and attachment to hesitating that keeps you on “pause.” It is time to see what has already been shown to you, and to take action, immediately, without hesitation.
I have often felt the sensation of an unseen hand touching me, on my shoulder, my cheek, always very gently and if I wasn’t paying attention I’d miss it. Maybe you’ve experienced something similar. It used to happen a lot when I was driving, waiting at a light, maybe because my mind was free to wander and I became aware of it when other things weren’t demanding my attention. It still happens, but if anything it’s become slightly more pronounced, and a lot more often. Riding the bus to work this morning I had a very distinct sensation of someone’s hand on top of mine.
Very few people know this, but I have also suspected I have a ghost in my house. For years odd things have happened, mostly very little things, but some not so little like tapping at the door when no one was there (as if someone rapidly drummed two knuckles against the door). Believe me, I ran and opened it to see who was there and there wasn’t anyone. It was too high up on the door to have been a cat or dog or raccoon, (talking five feet up) and no one could have gotten off that porch fast enough and without making any other noise before I got that door open. For awhile there was so much happening I actually had a ghost-hunting team interested in staking out the house and recording the whole thing for a potential tv show (not an existing show, they were pitching a new show and had some backing). It didn’t happen, but there was enough happening to convince them it would be worthwhile to come over and check it out.
Anyway, I was in bed one night, but awake, and very distinctly heard and felt someone sit down on the edge of the bed next to me. I heard the fabric rustle (I use a sleeping bag as a comforter, the outer shell is made of that nylon that rustles so much when you touch it) and sink down, and felt the depression. Within a minute, it happened a second time, right next to the first spot, as if someone set their hand down to brace themselves with, or a smaller person had sat down. No, the cat was not even in the room, and when she jumps up on the bed, she doesn’t just stop like that, she walks all over. But in any case, she wasn’t in the room and the door was shut. A little while later, I heard a small cough come from the other side of the room. There was no one there. At this point I actually did call out and asked whoever it was to please just go away. I was terrified by this, nothing like this had ever happened in the nearly twenty years I’ve lived in that house. I was not drunk, I was not dreaming, I have no explanation. It has not happened again. Except for the frequent sensation of someone touching me, generally on my arm, like putting a hand on me, things have quieted down.
The touching does not frighten me at all, I rather welcome that. I don’t know who it is, if they want anything (I suspect not) so we continue. I don’t ask this one to leave, I think they just want me to know they’re there. Is it a ghost? A guardian angel? No idea. I don’t find it threatening at all. But after pulling this card I will be looking for anything else that might give me a clue.
