I had a good friend who passed away recently and very unexpectedly. She was a very spiritual and intuitive person. One of her many gifts for connecting with Spirit was to use a dictionary. Her dictionary looked just like this only older.
Now the way she used it, is the interesting part. She would ask whoever she was sitting with to ask a question. Then she would tune into spirit and, with her eyes closed, would open the book and run her finger down the page until it stopped at a word. That word was the answer to the question. Sounds strange, but it always worked. I had many questions answered by the ‘magic dictionary.’ A visit with my friend wasn’t complete until I asked her to pull a word for me.
After she passed, I was able to use her dictionary twice. The first time was the night after she crossed into non-physical. I was at her house feeding her cat and I saw it. Now I would never think of using it when she was here, but it was staring me in the face so I thought…”I’m sure she won’t mind.” I held it, asked for a word that would show me what I needed to know and opened the book. My friend immediately appeared to me and showed me what page to open to and as I dragged my finger along the page, I saw the area to stop. The word was perfect for me! It was wonderful confirmation for where I was at that moment in my life. The best part was, my friend was still using this book to ‘read’ people. Now it was through me! The next morning I used it again to get a word for all those she left behind who were challenged by her passing. And that word was just as good and I shared it with all of our mutual friends.
The story doesn’t end here. About a week later I was cleaning out a large shelf that I sold on Craig’s List and on that book shelf was a dictionary just like my friends, only newer. I thought, “What are the chances of that!” Well apparently very good!
So yes, I am now using this dictionary just like my friend did. I am connecting with her and she shows me what page to turn to and what word to stop on–all with my eyes closed.
Here’s the moral of this story: You never know how spirit will connect with you. Don’t underestimate your gifts as a channel. You too can connect with spirit. Meditation is the first step. Get to know the you inside the you that you see in the mirror. And jump off from there. Find your own magic–be it with a dictionary or tarot cards. We all have intuitive abilities. It takes practice to bring them to the surface.
I have faith in you.
