Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

It is mostly through synchronistic timing of particular songs. It also happens on the Jazz channel. My friend and I were/are big jazz fans and have that deep connection in common. Here are a few examples:

This was probably a year or so ago now, but the day after I had quite an elaborate dream about my friend that was set at an opera house, I was listening to the opera satellite radio station on the drive into work. When I turned it on, a song called "Isis and Osiris" was playing. I had never heard this song before, but Isis and Osiris were the (original) names of my friend's cats (whom she absolutely adored). I say "original," because when she adopted them when we were in graduate school, she originally named them that, but later discovered that "Isis" was not a girl and renamed him Kurzon. Only I and possibly two other individuals would know about Isis and Osiris. Clearly, she was communicating with me.

Similar occurrences have happened on the jazz satellite radio station. Often when I am thinking about my friend and/or planning a return trip to Knoxville, TN/Smoky Mountains (where we went to grad school), I will get communications on the jazz radio station as if from her--showing her happiness that I am returning to the place where we first met, a magical place that we both love, and to reunite with our other two dear friends with whom she is equally connected. When I am making these plans, suddenly the Knoxville Jazz Orchestra will be featured on the jazz station (a bit obscure) or actual songs from her last music playlist featuring very obscure jazz artists will play repeatedly (for example, "Amber Gris" by Medeski, Martin & Woods).

It is fun, and I am so happy that whatever positive energy I (and our two other friends) conjure up when we are making plans (and when we are together in the mountains) opens a portal of communication in which she can communicate to me through music. It is very magical and bewitching. What an absolute delight!

Thank you, Steph, for your interesting response. I wish we could get more talking with each other going on here. I sometimes think that I might be talking to the air (except for the number of views) on my Baltho interview, for instance.

I haven't visited the Smokey Mts. I hear they're lovely.

Hello Thomas and All! (Tom--do not worry about conversations here; they kick up occasionally and intelligently and the chat room before IE radio on Sunday's is often rollicking!) . . .

Okay . . . You guys are going to get a real synchronistic kick out of this one! Are you ready? . . .

So I leave the office a bit early today--no reason, really. Just a nice day, good stopping point, and had some ideas for dinner. So I get in the car at about 3:45 p.m. and start immediately listening to an IE Radio archived interview that I was listening to on the morning commute. As I was listening to it for a few minutes, I thought about my post earlier today--about my friend and her way of speaking to me through the jazz and opera satellite radio stations. So . . . I switch it to the opera station, and I kid you not--I took a photo and am attaching it to this post--the opera Norma was playing! Now do not tell me that was not my friend communicating with me that my prior post on this Encounter Board (where my pseudonym is "Norma") about how she communicates to me through opera/jazz satellite radio stations was not absolutely accurate (and she saw/heard it)! Oh, it was her! And I think she was definitely giving me the, "Yes, It's me and we can talk with you all of the time!"

And the synchronicity does not end there. Oh, no. . . . So, look at the photo further . . . there is a date (that is the date that the opera was recorded at the Met in NYC); then there are two names (the first name is the last name of the director, and the second name is the last name of the person in the title role--here, it would be the role of "Norma" played by a woman with the last name Verrett) During one of the interludes as I listened, the host explained some of the plot of the opera and then mentioned the full name of the soprano playing "Norma"--Shirley Verrett! A "Shirley" playing a "Norma"?! After I (a "Norma") had just posted on another "Shirley's" website about my friend communicating to me through the opera radio station?! Get out! :-) Here is a little information on the (now deceased) Shirley Verrett:
http://www.shirleyverrett.com/ I like, also, that her last name "Verrett" sounds like it comes from the Latin root "ver," which means truth--veritable, veracity, etc? Isn't this great?!

This was so much fun for me, and I couldn't wait to get home to share it with you all! I laughed and smiled the whole way home! There is absolutely life after death, and there are absolutely ways to communicate if your heart is open to those spirits flying in and out (as Rumi would say).

Love and light from the Midwest,
steph

P.S. Had I left the office at my normal time, I may have not gotten this message. By 4:20, the opera channel was playing Wagner. Something compelled me to leave early today, which is oh-so-rare. Was it my friend? I think so.

P.P.S. Thomas--if you like getting a big ol' intimate hug from nature, go deep into the Smokies. If you like being awe-inspired, then probably the Rockies or Yosemite. Both are fabulous experiences. I prefer the mystical Smokies.

Thanks.

I know the Rockies pretty well as a third generation Coloradan.

Anyone else have similar synchronistic experiences with those whom you've lost that you'd like to share?

I don't notice much in the way of synchronicity as you do. If someone wants to speak to me I hear them, sometimes see them as well. Usually I just hear them. The only extended tellings have been with Hattie between lives and then in the early days of her rebirth as Melchior. Things have tapered off quite a lot since then.

I think one of the most profound experiences I've had with the dead is recounted in the chapter about Mr. Contini in Baltho, The Dog Who Owned a Man. I was surprised to learn that he'd died some time before, since I'd seen him out walking his yard as he always did. I just couldn't figure out why he didn't speak to me as he'd always done. I came to the conclusion in talking with his adult daughter and widow that he didn't realize that I saw him.

Hi Steph,
I just now read your synchronicity story. The Norma/Shirley thing is almost too much to ignore! The fact that you left early from work is also part of the amazing story.
I have a story that I will try to tell quickly. Five years ago, my sister-in-law , who lived in Colorado, passed away. We were very close. Well, I couldn't attend the funeral, but my husband did, of course. The night of her funeral I was sitting outside on our deck and I saw a hummingbird around our flowers and got very excited. We rarely see hummingbirds and my first thought was that I will have to tell my husband!
Well, he called me later and told me about the service for his sister. She was cremated and on her crematorium box was the sculpture of a hummingbird. I KNOW that she visited me that evening. Since I couldn't go to her, she came to me! I have never doubted the veracity of signs from the deceased since.
Love,
Joanne

Love this experience, Joanne. Thank you so much for sharing it with all of us.

Yes, animals so often are the vehicles for spiritual communications, aren't they? This is probably why the gods of old (Indian, etc) often had animal companions known as their vehicles--for example, Ganesha and his little mouse friend; Shiva and his dog(s). The spirit of the gods can reach us through our four-legged furry (sometimes) mediums. Anita (my previously referenced friend) often flits around and visits me and our two other close friends in the Smoky Mountains in the form of a blue butterfly--an animal always closely associated with Anita when she was in this physical dimension.

It's so wonderful when you let your heart fly open to the possibilities of these communications. When you do, you see and hear them daily. It is a tremendous comfort. And I find tremendous comfort in hearing the stories from others here. Thank you so much!

Love and light from the Midwest,
steph
