Spirit Will Speak On Its Terms & Not Ours
There is also such a stigma around the Ouija Board, that I believe that fear alone often creates unwanted connections. Its always best to practice extreme, non fearful caution when approaching the Ouija Board or any many of Spirit Communication as a novice.
So down to the story at hand. Approximately a week and a half ago, my mum was here for an over night visit. As we sat around the warm open fire chatting, I randomly asked her had she ever used the Ouija Board. For me to ask such a question or discuss such a topic is out of character for me and so I can only trust that it was Spirit instigating the conversation. She asks me "Now why did you ask me such a question?" As to which I replied "I have no idea." We recently had a chat about magic mushrooms, lol, so anything seems to go in our house these days. She went on to share that yes she did. When she was 14, as most youngsters of that age do, she discovered at school the notion of the Ouija Board. On coming home to her pretty strict Catholic Home in Limerick and sharing her new found discovery, her mum and dad, where surprisingly pretty eager to give it ago. So they made up their own letters, got the glass out and night after night where in contact with a Spirit who identified himself as Saint Francis. I only wish they had kept a copy of there connection and conversations. It would have been pretty invaluable now. They became strong followers of Saint Francis at that point and according to my mum, gathered his statues etc as a symbol of their love.
I was of course shocked to think the grandparents I thought I knew had another side to them. I always knew they where both very spiritual people and with both of them having made so many appearances in my life since their passing, I have no doubt some of my own life events tie into their devotion for Saint Francis.
For example, last Christmas 2014 I was compelled to buy a box set of movies in Xtra Vision purely because it had the old biblical movie of Saint Francis in it. Me and my family thoroughly enjoyed it and like everything that has meaning to it, I blubbered like a big baby.
Also in 2013 I purchased on instinct a lovely wall plague of The Serenity Prayer. All random seemingly unrelated things, but where they really?
This year on moving into our new home, which was previously owned by nuns, I called my healing center The Serenity Sanctuary and the room I use for my Spirit Work was their prayer room. On my wall of course mounts The Serenity Prayer to bless our space.
I would not massively say I am religious, but somethings make sense, in someways for me. I am certainly not catholic but I would say I am more universal in my thinking and living. I believe those who did good in this life before us, can still come back to guide and mentor us in this life. We call them in my line of work Ascended Masters.
At the end of August, we took a trip to Knock in Mayo. I haven't been there since I was a small kid. Again the energy is so big it makes me cry. As we walk from shop to shop, I became intent on finding a Saint Francis statue for The Sanctuary. We trekked nearly every store in town, I found a small dinky one, but it was not screaming I must have you. I could see the one I wanted, near the same height of me, standing in front of the healing room door, guarding it. I believe I was just content knowing it was there. I felt like I was on a secret mission and now believe perhaps my beautiful Nana (Grandmother) was influencing my thoughts. She was fond of Knock in her day and in someways I felt this re-connection occurring again.
So my mums story of their adventures with Saint Francis and the Ouija board, slotted everything into place. The little parts in my life that had been occurring for a few years, began to make more sense. Its comforting knowing my Grandparents are still guiding me and making things happen in my life. For me they where the earlier Lightworkers in our family. The trail blazers who brought in several amazing healers etc into our family. No doubt with my brood and the rest of the Kenny's out there, there will be more to follow. Its a pretty amazing feeling to know I am part of that.
As for me, Saint Francis and The Serenity Sanctuary, we will journey another mile together. I live by the words of truth and its no surprise that in my journey to grace and serenity over the past few years, that started with my car crash with a deer in 2013, (the deer symbolizes peace, grace and serenity) that I discovered one of my much loved songs and Artists, Snatam Kaur. I share her passion here and hope that it will be my turn to sing it to soon in The Serenity Sanctuary. www.theserenitysanctuary.net
