Several years ago, I met a woman for the first time. I won't go into the reasons or situation, but we met and had a long chat. We hit it off quite nicely, and it turned out to be a long conversation.
Shortly before we parted, she gave me the strangest look. I asked her if something was wrong. She said "No. But for just a split second there I saw someone else come through you, someone familiar." This seemed very odd to me. Now, sure, I've had people say "Gee, when your smile like that, or just now when you turned your head, you reminded me of, or looked exactly like....", but not "...someone else came through you."
Anyway, being that I'm used to spiritually diverse conversations, I didn't think much more about it. We parted, and I went on my merry way. Not long after, I began to not feel well. I felt drained and drained so suddenly. I got a headache, and I had to go home and go to bed where I fell deeply asleep. Later in the evening, I contacted this woman by email and asked her how she felt after our meeting. She reported that she felt strangely elated. She felt so good and so happy that it seemed odd. I shared that I had had an opposite experience. Then I asked her about her statement. I said it seemed an interesting and unusual choice of words to say she saw "someone" familiar "come through me", vs saying I reminded her of someone she knew. I asked her to spend some more time thinking about it and see if anything came up for her. I recieved the following email (this was July of 2007):
"It is pretty clear to me now who was trying to come through that first day we talked in my office. A dear friend whom I loved with all my heart died of cancer 5 1/2 years ago, she was diagnosed about this time of year. She was a stunning woman, quite beautiful, more so, of course, because I loved her and valued her friendship so much. Guess that has to do with seeing a persons inner beauty as well.
If I had to zero in on one feature of hers that stood out over the rest it would be her smile!
At this point I am surprised I didn't realize it before.............about a week before she passed I told her that if she could come back and visit me I would be watching for her. Because of all of the medication I wasn't sure the message got through. I do feel I can contact her and feel her presence near, even ask her for advise once in awhile and usually get an answer in her humorous, bold style.
Something you said at one point in our conversation was almost word for word what she would have said about men. Because I have felt her near quite often it didn't come to mind that she might try to connect in a different way - instead on coming through on "my channel" she came through on yours."
