Thank you!
Perhaps it's god telling you to cultivate your sense of humor?

As for translation, I "feel" the messages, and I try to interpret that into words that make sense to people. I know that there are some sublties that make a Great Sherry as opposed to an okay Sherry, but I don't know what they are.

At that point in the message, I was trying to translate that concept of subtle but definite "flavor" differences.

I did not do a good job, and God/Spirit/Whomever that shares these messages through me was a little... I won't say frustrated, because that's not right, but something along the lines of that... with my inability to translate the thought concept very well.

that helps to know it was about the Sherry.

Shush you did not do anything "bad" girl!

Just as your diety spirit speaks through you, you are perfect and your efforts are wonderful.

Love & Light!!

(BTW - Spirit would need to help out in untold ways to get me to be a comedian/humor person... sounds light and fun though!

I didn't get the sense that it was meant to be anything like that. I got the sense that it was meant in your interpersonal relationships. Nothing on the scale you are referencing.

I guess it felt a little foreign to read about the humor because I feel sort of "serious as a heart attack" inside! (which I didn't fully - totally realize until I read the passage)

I had a child in 2002 who turned out to have a permanent developmental disorder - since then things have just been very serious and I rarely have the time to have "fun" or laugh or much of anything but thinking and feeling Just plain old light hearted "fun" - I can't even remember when things weren't heavy.

So, maybe that's why it hit me and didn't sink in exactly.

WOW!

May I, o may I ask for one for me???
And yes, you can put it on your blog.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

In this case, dear one, your Message may well be the most accurate one, to date.

Laughter and joy nourish and nurture our souls. It sounds like yours could use some nourishment right about now, no?

Today, before I address individuals, I will address the subject of death.

Days before you will die, it is known to us. It causes quite a stir here. The angels begin to gather. The nearest ones arrive first. The furthest ones hurtle towards the gathering place with all haste, leaving in their wake a trail of energy that shouts for all to hear, "The human named [ ] is returning!"

Others come across this energy, and whatever business they were about is set aside for a moment, and they, too, race for the gathering place.

Excitement, anticipation, joy abound in the place made sacred now. It must be raised high enough in energy for the grand one, the magnificent one about to arrive!

"Oh, hurry, hurry!" they say to each other, as they prepare the sacred place, "she's nearly here!" The ones who arrive first begin the process, and the others join in, in a flurry of wings and hands and brilliant colors.

As the anticipated time draws near, a great hush falls over the crowd. In this place are gathered trillions upon trillions of angels. Bright, beautiful, wonderful, ready and waiting to receive the human.

At last, after what seems to them to be an eternity, the human BURSTS forth, and the entire sky turns to rainbow hues of their name. The name of the arriving human floods the gathering place, and beams out beyond it. The chorus of their name sings into that place, and a collective gasp goes up as the energy of death blazes brilliantly into the sacred place.

A wave goes out across the crowd, a murmur of admiration and wonder. "Oh, isn't the human BEAUTIFUL?!" they exclaim. "Isn't he fantastic?!" "How amazing, how gorgeous!"

Then, they wait again, and a profound and indescribable silence falls. And the human begins to speak. She tells her story. The human story. And the angels listen in awe, and wonder.

He speaks of each and every person he ever encountered, by their full, heavenly name.

"I once met Joe at the bus stop. I did not know him."

Someone in the crowd exclaims, "But Joe is your dearest and bestest friend! How could you possibly not recognize him??"

And someone else in the crowd, with a smile, says, "That is what it means to be human. Isn't it amazing?"

The first responds, "But surely, Joe knew you, right?"

With a gentle, patient smile, the magnificent human says gently, "No, indeed, Joe did not know me, either." And the speaker is astounded. What a strange and magical thing to be a human! To stand beside your dearest and bestest friend and not know him!

The human tells the story of her mother. But the word "mother" is not as you know it. It is a powerful, dense, amazing word. It carries with it all the subtle and powerful truths of what it really means to be a "mother." And as it passes out across the audience, they pick up the word, they examine it, they experience and savor every nuance of it. And they are astounded at the magic, the mystery, the wonder, of that word. They see all the beautiful lessons, learned at Mother's knee. They feel all the sorrows, and all the joys of this human's experience with her mother. They gasp at the strength of the human who experienced it all, they gasp in awe at the name of the newly arrived human's mother.

How prestigious this human is! How incredible this human, linked to a family such as this!

And it continues. The human tells of the Father. And the audience experiences this human's experience of having a father. And the word goes out across the crowd, and the Father is celebrated as the Mother was.

The whole family is discussed at great length, and by their full heavenly name. By the standards of your time, just your name alone takes Eons to be told.

And as the telling takes place, the listeners begin to spin faster. They grow brighter. The light spills out of the sacred place, and expands. And as the energy grows, the Universe expands. All of those in the sacred place are uplifted by your family member's story.

When at last, the telling culminates in the return to this place, the audience slowly disburses. They go back to tasks, talking excitedly about the honor they had to be there for the Telling.

And each and every one of them carries the story of the Human whose Return they attended. And that story draws others like a magnet.

One day, one of the attendees will be in a distant place. And another will see that she carries the story of a Human. And the other will rush to her, so swiftly.

"Oh, beautiful, beautiful!" he will exclaim! "Oh, you carry a Human Story!"

"Why yes," she will say with tremendous pride, "As a matter of fact, I do!"

And she will tell him the story. And as she tells him, others will hear, and they will rush to hear the story. And soon, there will be trillions upon trillions of angels there. They will listen to the glorious story of the Mother, and of the Father, and of the Brother, the Sister, the Grandchild. They will hear each name in its fullness.

As they leave, at the end of the story, they will be glowing more brightly. They will be spinning faster. Their energy will be denser and more profound. And they will carry the story with them, with deepest pride.

Others will know that they attended the Telling of one of the grandest and greatest adventures in the cosmos.

And your story will be retold, and retold, and retold. For you are dearly loved, each and every one.

Wow. Just Wow. The Message was so powerful at honoring the divinity in each of our journeys.

It reminds me of the Dragonfly story. http://healingmeandyou.wordpress.com.../10/waterbugs/

Thanks for sharing Signs from the Other Side.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
While the writer prepares herself to hold my love for you, I wish to tell you that your name is apt, not only for where you are, but for where you've been as well.

Dear one, would you expect me to be light-hearted with you? Would you expect me to match your pleasant mood and to be joyous?

I am filled, truly, with joy at your presence. But I am also touched with profound solemnity and tender reverence. I do not wish to chase the smile away from you, but I do wish to let you know the weight, the depth, the truth of my deep, abiding love for you.

You live constantly in a light and joyous place. It is a beautiful and perfect place. You carry it with you everywhere. People see you and smile.

But you have known for a long time now that, when I see you, I do not smile. It is not what you think. There is no disapproval in me towards you. There is no desire to see you doing otherwise than you already are. You are on the right path, and you know it.

I do not smile because I revere you. I do not smile because the weight of the honor I experience when I visit with you is so powerful, so profound, so heavy, so beautiful.

Oh, beloved, you are dearly loved. So dearly, so deeply, so sincerely.

I am proud of you. I am so very proud of you. I am proud of you!

Oh, dearest, dainty and beautiful one. Your soul is as light and delicate and magnificent as the rarest butterfly.

It moves me to awe.

Peggy Phoenix Dubro describes Unconditional Love thus: the ability to love without judgement

Fireworks, old brown stones, skydiving, candles, a fuzzy white egret, a lotus blossom, ice on tree branches, shadows on the sunlit snow, sweet drinks with umbrellas, blueberries, and a glass of wine at bedtime. Do you know the song? "These are a few of my favorite things..."

Another song, dearest. A sadder song, but just as true. "To everything, turn, turn, turn, there is a season. A time to gather stones together, and a time to cast stones away." A time to live, and a time to die.

Human sorrow is a blanket of black velvet across their souls. It is so hard for you! So painful! But oh, my dear, the love you have for those who have come to us to tell their stories! It is more beautiful than the tiny purple flowers.

Do you want to hear their hearts? Do you want to feel their love?

Close your eyes. Sit on the shore at night. Listen to the sound of the cotton tails and wheat grass as it whispers all around you. Listen to the lapping of the waves.

Visit the waterfall, and listen to it roar. Feel the tears of your ancestors fall on your face. Go outside at night and listen to the howling of the wind, the hooting of the owls. Look at the moon and let her beams caress your face.

Touch the face of your children. Close your eyes and imagine dolphins swimming in the surf. Turn on some beautiful, poignant music.

Drink a chocolate drink, enjoy a glass of spirits. Let the chains drop from your heart and from your imagination.

Every time that you allow yourself to truly enjoy life, they are closer to you than they have ever been before.

Okay, I made an MP3 of the post regarding death. If anyone wants to listen to it and give me some opinions, it would be great. It's only a first draft, but I'd love opinions if someone's willing.

You can download it here, and listen to it like any MP3:

I am wanting to provide constructive feedback, as you have requested. I am hesitant because I am first. Personally, I found my silent reading of the original message to have more powerful of an impact than the spoken reading. Something about the internal experience of awareness and contemplation of my own philosophy and beliefs surrounding death is dissipated by the "common" spoken language that we use to communicate. It is the vehicle of our *human* tool of communication which dampens the significance of the message, it seems, for me. Logistically, I found that I had more space for reflection, rereading, internalizing and integrating the message at my own pace when I controlled the speed of the unfolding of the message.

Perhaps, this has to do with my literary nature and preference for learning through the written word, rather than through auditory reception. I imagine that others may be moved through the fuller effect of *hearing* the words with their senses. I sort of have to decipher each word in context to experience the fullness of meaning. Hearing the word "angels" ascultated diluted the ethereal experience for me; it is perhaps tainted by my own baggage surrounding religion. When I read the word "angels" it had more depth and breadth, than the cultural context with which I am familiar.

I trust that my genuine enjoyment of the message is conveyed.

Fondly, Pat

That really really helps. I was thinking it was "just me" that made it seem "diminished" by being spoken. I'm glad to know there's more to it than "just me."

(And yes, I am being 100% sincere)

Looks like I need to manifest that sense of humor somewhere!

I thought the writing about death was very moving. Did not listen to the recording though. Kind of like knowing the book is going to be better than the movie if you will. Like Wuwei I am a literary person too. I like reading messages.

I am wondering if a message for my child comes up at all.

If so I would love to print it out and put it away for her when she's old enough to understand it.

thanks again for your words.

Amris... I suggested this on the LoA thread, but I'm going to post it here too. I think it would be great if you started charging for your messages. I am sure there are people that would love to ask for a message (or an additional message!) but don't want to ask for something for free. Personally, I'd be asking for messages for everyone in my family if you were charging for them and I felt it was all a little more fair. It is amazingly generous of you to give of yourself like this, but I think getting a little something in return is really quite ok as well.

With love and appreciation,
Melanie

Nope, selling them is not right. If someone feels the need to purchase one instead of accepting it free, please use the Donate button. When you do, there is a place to leave a message. In that, please put a username for the person you want the Message for.

I am very comfortable with the sense that I don't want to "charge" for them.

On the other hand, I am offering them here still, so please, if you can't afford it, don't hesitate to ask!
That's great Amris! Look how quickly you manifested a business!
