The Necklace

The first time that my husband communicated with me after he died I did not realize he had communicated with me until many months later.

The third day after he died I was at a jewelry store with my Mom. We were trying to find a necklace that I could string Mark’s wedding band on and wear around my neck.

As I looked at the options that were strong enough to hold the ring I realized I was very conflicted. It was my nature to wear shorter necklaces that hung higher up around my neck. But for some reason I just couldn’t make up my mind to go with a shorter necklace or a longer one.

I told the salesperson I needed a minute. I walked away from him and started looking around the store, just easily wandering ,with no purpose or direction.

I looked down at a very beautiful ring and thought, “How can I be admiring jewelry when my husband just died three days ago?!” Instantly I heard the exact words in my mind that I know Mark would have said had he been standing there with me. I heard him chuckle and say, “It is a beautiful ring silly. And it would look great on you.”

In that moment I smiled. It would have been just like him to say something like that. He liked beautiful expensive things. The smile that came with the thought of him may have been the first one to cross my lips since he died.

Right after that I had the thought in my head that I should get the longer necklace. That it might not be easy for the boys (Our two son’s ages 3 and 5) to see their Dad’s ring around my neck so soon after he had died unexpectedly. And the longer necklace would let the ring hang down hidden inside my shirt.

I walked directly back to the salesman and bought the longer necklace. That night I had an experience that confirmed my suspicion with the boys.

Many months after that day, even months after I’d written about the experience in my book, “The Gift Giver”, I realized that Mark was actually there with me in the store when he chuckled. And that he was literally telling me to get the longer necklace. I realized he had already been starting to protect me and the boys.

Believing that you can communicate with a lost loved one is the essential ingredient to having it happen. Being aware of what is going on in the moment is another. If you can stretch your mind to the point that you are open to the idea that your loved one can communicate through your thoughts, you might change your perspective so strongly that you may even realize they have been communicating with you for a long time and you didn’t even realize it.

My Tip for You:
