An Angel in our Midst

I first published this story on my website and then in the book I wrote on my experiences, Dogged Days. Reading it still brings a quivering heart and tears to my eyes, talking about it too. It’s excruciatingly sad but it is also rather wonderful.

 

An Angel in our Midst

 

In 1997 I was living in Perth, Western Australia, most of my family were too, but one of my brothers, his wife and 3 beautiful daughters – the youngest are twins – were living in England.

It was December, winter time in England, and kids were sniffing and sneezing with the latest version of the season’s ailments. Tyffany, just 9-years-old, and the eldest, complained of a sore throat, and feeling under the weather – a bit achy. She was taken to see the local doctor who gave her some antibiotics and urged a snug rest at home for a few days. As was expected she got a bit worse during the day. Her mum, dad and little sisters made sure that she was well looked after with whatever she needed, and made her as comfortable as possible. Later in the evening Tyffany went off to bed aiming to feel better in the morning. She loved going to school and playing with her many friends – she had missed them and wondered how they were getting on with the busy Christmas events and other things they were involved in.

Misty

There have been occasions, a very few, when I have journeyed intentionally; not with drugs, I don’t do them. Most times it is something that occurs out-of-the-blue. I don’t know why that is but I do wonder if it is more likely that this experience that I am writing in, is just an otherworld for me. Maybe it is for everyone. Probably is.

The Invisible Friend

When we were young, many of us had invisible friends, for some of us the invisible friends were our best friends. They never lied or betrayed us, were always ready to play and sometimes told us secrets. I remember that I was really bossy with mine!! But were they real? Our parents told us it was just ‘imagination’ and eventually most of us began to believe them. But what is the imagination? Is it the doorway to our real selves, the part of us on the ‘other side’ where we truly belong and where we are whole?

Dreaming of Brad Pitt

To say that these are tough times is something of an understatement. Obviously in the past there have been other recessions but this global meltdown has left millions in a downward spiral of despair. Many people, including myself, have lost jobs, homes and all hope as a result. This is all on a background of worldwide turmoil in the shape of the war(s) on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan, a recent war in Libya, an uprising in Egypt and a potential war in Syria. Not withstanding the second level 7 nuclear event in my lifetime in the shape of Fukushima which had a catastrophic meltdown of 3 reactors in March 2011.

In amongst all of this confusion I have continued to have dreams which at times guide me to greater awareness and at times leave me unsettled. One such dream was on 8.7.13 when I dreamt that an aeroplane crashed into an air traffic control tower. The symbolic element of the dream is that of a tower which has many interpretations i.e. Tower of Babel and the association with Mary Magdalene and the word Magdala which means tower. There is also the connotation with the twin towers disaster on 11/9/01. This crash has not happened yet and unfortunately I was not given a location during the dream but this was a ‘trigger’ event for further things to happen.
