Two Teenaged Angels Help from Beyond

Updated on February 13, 2010

Some of you may have read my story "Ghetto Chicks and Butterflies" where I shared about my nephew's passing almost 3 years ago, and the signs he gave his Mom and me from beyond, which confirmed that he is still alive, but in spirit. There have been a few more signs and visitations, not only with his loved ones, but also with his friends and even strangers! He recently visited his Mom in a dream.

In the dream, which was a short one, my sister, Norma saw her son standing next to a corner table with a chair where a young man was sitting facing a beautiful window covered with plants. When she walked into the room, she asked Omar "who is this friend?" he smiled and replied, "it's Chris!" and then woke up.

A few days later, she received a call in reference to an ad she had placed in Craigslist a week before, advertising a garage sale to sell off merchandise, tables and mannequins from her former boutique in NY. She spoke to a woman who wanted to see the merchandise as she was opening a boutique. When she arrived with her daughter, they were delighted to see that the entire stock was being sold at a nominal price, and decided to purchase everything right away.

When Norma and the mother started to chat, little did they both realize what was about to be revealed. The mother shared that her 19 year old son had been shot and killed 2 years ago, and was getting discouraged in opening a boutique because everything in NY was too expensive, so she prayed and also asked the spirit of her son to help her, and found sis who gave it practically away. The pain of the loss of this woman's son was so unbearable, that her husband passed away from a heart attack a year later after their son's passing; she also lost her business in her country, as she neglected it due to the consuming grief, but had to start earning income, reason why she was opening a boutique again, as she still has two daughters. When my sister asked her, what was her son's name, she said Chris! Then sis shared that she also had lost her son, and related the dream she had a few days before about Omar introducing her to Chris; of course both moms hugged each other and with tears, they were both filled with gratitude that both their teenage sons arranged this meeting between their mothers. Two strangers became potential friends, as both exchanged phone numbers and emails to keep in touch.

I wonder how Omar could have connected to a stranger, or Chris connect to Omar, and I am yet reminded again that spiritually we are all one. We are all capable of hearing and receiving messages from our loved ones, but I have found we have to be alert and open minded about the possibility of communicating with our loved ones who have passed on, in order to make the connection.

When I read or meet someone who has lost a loved one and is in need of solace, I want so much to give that person a hug, but its odd to hug a stranger, not that I haven't done this on occasion, I must confess, so I just listen with an open heart; sometimes this all that it takes to give someone the comfort that is needed.

I recently finished creating a non commercial, healing and inspirational website in honor of my nephew. Its aimed at helping others who are experiencing grief and looking for answers, and help. Not that I claim I can give the answers because I can't, but I can share a little bit of my soul, my sisters' soul, and the thoughts and experiences of others, and resources that may help. My sister, focused on the website design as she is a very talented artist and self taught webmaster, and I on the writing.

I think my nephew must be happy his mom and aunt worked together at creating something beautiful, and in remembering him in such a way that enriches us both.

      Ripplemaker: It is the miracles and kindness from others that has helped us to deal with the loss of such a vital young man who would have been 22. We are all indeed connected and this gives me a deep gratitude.  Thanks for visiting, Michelle. :)

      When I read stories like this, I continue to be amazed and grateful that miracles abound our lives. And that we are all connected in spirits and have that desire to help each other. Thank you VioletSun for sharing. :)

      Hi, Madison: So nice to see you here, and that Pam connected us. She is one of my favorite hubbers, as she is real, and has depth while being witty at the same time. :) I left a comment on your hub with a link to my site, not knowing you had left a comment here.

      My sister is another person, Madison. I may write about her one day, but I have to be inspired to do this... but suffice to say, that her son's death literally transformed her. She is softer, very spiritual (not religious) and even has opened up psychically. I love her, and admire her inner beauty.

      I am also writing a book, and want it published this year or else its going to be one of those projects that lasts for decades. LOL!

      Nice meeting you!

      I wanted to see what you were writing about since I ran into Pam, here, and she respects your work. This was really a beautiful piece.

      I'm finding this all a little odd that an event in my life led me to start writing again in order to save my sanity, I began with Helium, then Triond and, I then stumbled on Hub Pages. When I began writing here, just a few days ago, I wrote nothing about spirituality, near death experiences, reincarnation or any other metaphysical "stuff" for lack of a better word!

      Then I met Pam. Then I joined the Pub. writer's page. What is odd is that I lost my beautiful daughter last year. I've always been into the metaphysical, for more than 30 years. Suddenly, I meet people who are not only interested in the subject but who are actively working on a project related to it all! Excuse me if I see this as a bit of serendipidity, but I guess I need to begin to write on the subject again! I have done one book, fiction, with a new age theme, that has yet to be published!! There's a surprise, hah!

      Anyway, loved your web page, it is amazingly beautiful. Mine looks like crap...the web design thing is not my thing! Keep on,

      This is so lovely, VS. I think we are coming back to what the ancients knew--that dreams can be a portal to loved ones no longer on earth--we think we know so much, but there is so much more that we don't understand and therefore ignore. Thanks so much for this.

      This is a beautiful hub violetsun, thank you for sharing it. I had an experience like this after my grandfather died. I dreamed he was standing at the foot of my bed )it felt real, but I was dreaming) and he told me to take care of my grandmother. This was between his actual death an the funeral. After the funeral my grandmother asked me if I would move in with her for awhile and I did and lived there for a year.

      Hi, Silviagirl: I am so sorry for the physical loss of your little angel, I know its hard on the human heart. The visits and messages do help with dealing with loss don't they? I am collecting stories of after death visitations from my inspiratoinal website's email, so if you ever feel inclined to share one, I would love to read it.

      Thank you for your comments!
