When our departed loved ones come forward in a reading, they are very keen and eager to demonstrate their presence to us and show evidence of their authenticity by sharing information about themselves which the medium cannot possibly know about in advance or isolation.
This happens almost each and every time I conduct a mediumship session for a client whose departed loved ones will reveal their physical attributes such as the way they wear their hair, their facial features, the colour of their skin, their height and size, and their attire, etc. Sometimes they will come carrying items that are significant or symbolic to the client like jewellery, utensils, books, etc.
Clients who died of an illness will want to show me the cause of their death like a heart attack, respiratory diseases, gastrointestinal problems etc. And often, I feel the sensations and pain that they experienced prior to and at the point of death. While this isn’t pleasant for me, it helps my clients to understand in vivid terms as conveyed by me the symptoms and sensations that their deceased relatives had experienced.
Clients whose relatives died a sudden or unexplained death want to know the underlying cause or causes of death. I will ask their deceased loved ones for the information and often they will show me signs such as shortness of breath or asphyxiation, cardiac arrest from a heart attack, etc.
Our departed loved ones are also eager to come within close proximity. One of my clients saw me a few times in order to communicate with her mum. She died at an old age due to chronic ailments and had a reticent nature and would keep a brave front without complaining to her children about her afflictions. As a result, while they knew she experienced a great deal of pain at the point of her departure, they didn’t know it was prolonged and continuous pain in the final years of her life until she revealed it to me during the mediumship session.
I described her physical appearance and personality traits with vivid detail to my client. Even her favourite food - a local Chinese cake which is popularly known as “gou” in Cantonese which is her dialect. And the fact that she likes tea and wishes her children would make an offering of tea to her. Her favourite spot in the garden of her son’s home. Where she could bask in the afternoon sun.
In her last session with me, my client asked if her mum was with her dad who passed away long before her mum did. Indeed, he too came forward and I described him to her - high nose bridge and sharp features, I said. And her parents made a good looking couple. Her mum was a classic Chinese beauty with dainty features. My client later sent me a photo of her parents by email and told me I had described the pair with great accuracy. I asked her for permission to post the photo of her late parents together with this blog and she kindly acceded.
My client cried during her last session, immensely moved by the experience of communicating with both her parents and feeling assured that they might not have spent their whole lives together but were at least together and united in their afterlives.
Her mother moved forward, close enough to “touch” her and then leaned over to hug her. I told my client that I could see her mother doing that as if to make physical contact with her. Her tears flowed freely and her eyes glistened with love and affection for her deceased mother.
