story at hand for the right time. God gets said what he wants said
in so many ways. Sometimes, people can get very technical about what
is Truth and just exactly how Truth works and what Truth is. Your
story is a wonderful reminder that when we're serious about wanting
to know, none of that gets in the way. We take the love letters
given to the heart and they are real and that's all that ever

- What an incredible experience; I wonder if he was your son reincarnated?
You obviously had a very special connection to this little boy, no
question there. I love hearing stories like this, they really tug at a
Your comment about the fact that he was glowing reminded me of a funny
story about myself. A few months after I first started meditating
(which I always do in the dark and start out with my eyes open as I love
the "floor show" of colors and movement), I realized that there was this
light all around me and I figured I must have left the hall light on, so
I turned to look towards the hall and it was dark, no light. I turned
back around and while looking straight ahead I could see all this light
again. I didnt understand at first that it was my own aura; I was lit
up like a lightbulb and it actually scared me so much I stopped and
didnt try to meditate again for a few days as I didnt have a clue what I
Another funny experience I had when I first started meditating was the
first time my crown chakra opened (I had never even heard of a chakra
back then) it felt like I had ants crawling all over my head and scalp;
once I realized there was nothing there I thought some kind of spirit
must be trying to take me on and I screamed at "it" to leave me alone
and I stopped meditating. It is so funny to me now; I was soooo naive
at that time that it really scared me. It has been an interesting
journey to say the least!
