I woke up this morning thinking about these three boys who are apart of this particular story. I had no idea why they were on my mind. Perhaps they came to visit me while I slept, although I have not the memory. However, often times, when one goes through a spiritual initiation they would have met many people on their journey who, whilst, not having a physical body, are now apart of their spiritual “team.” The story below is when I was young spiritually and was on my very brutal journey of “initiation.” When I became awake and set upon my path to eventually become who I am now as Obara Meji, this particular story proves to me that there is indeed no death as we know it, but the physical body sheds and the spirit is now born somewhere else.
After I had this experience that you will read about below, I remember asking my pastor (at the time I was Christian) why did I experience that? And he said 4 simple words: “You are too kind.” He never explained anything beyond having a secret smile and a gleam in his eyes as he looked at me, perhaps knowing something about me that he did not reveal back then. But I have come a long way from that naive neophyte who walked the realm of spirit as her body slept at nights, making many friends and allies who are still with me to this day. Please enjoy this story.
Years ago, I went to sleep and found myself on a journey walking. I don’t know where. I came upon a man whose face I couldn’t see and he shone a very bright light in my face and said to me, “you are a very nice and kind person and I wonder if you could do something for me?” While shielding my eyes from the bright light I responded “what do you want me to do?”
He said, “these three have just arrived and I have nowhere to place them as yet. Perhaps you could put them up for me for a couple of days?”
I looked over to my right and saw three young boys around the ages of eighteen, nineteen and twenty. They were all dressed in khaki shirts and tops and they had modern hair cuts with designs shapes in their hair. I told him yes I would put them up for him and he said thanks. I then saw myself in my house with the boys directing them to go inside a barrel that I had in my hallway. They all looked frightened and timid but they all climbed into the barrel and tried to slide the cover to close it.
I stopped them and told them no, thinking that they would suffocate. When I woke up that morning I told no one about that vision but I sensed that all I experienced was real. Who would believe me and not try to have me committed? So I carried on life without saying anything. One day my friend came to spend a weekend with me, it was about three months after my experience. When she got up the next morning (my friend is a spiritualist) and was doing her morning prayers she asked me, “who are these three boys that comes and goes like they live here?” she proceeded to say that they were spirits and they were quite respectful but it was time for them to leave they had gotten too comfortable. Of course I knew who she referred to and told her the story of how they came to be. I then tapped into my higher self to find out how to send them on their way respectfully and was told how to do so which worked. To this very day any time I’m in trouble or I cry these boys who are now settled in the spirit world come to my aid quickly in my visions and let me know that they have never forgotten my kindness.
To clarify for those who do not get the full understanding of this, I will explain. Those boys had just crossed over into the realm of spirit and were being prepared to be place on the dimension that they were to live, I happened to wander into that zone where their spirit handler was processing them, it’s either that or my guardian angel took me there to experience this, I believe it is the latter, and was asked to keep them for a few days, with the pretense that there was too much to be processed and therefore he needed help, as a test of my spirit and strength by the handler at my guardian angels request. When you are in spiritual school you are tested quite often. I forgot that they were there until Shelly saw them and told me, which prompted me to release them and send them on their way. They always come to visit me especially when I am in distress. I have not seen them for a while and I sometimes wonder if they have reincarnated back into the world.
If they have not, I will know after writing this post as they will either see it or hear about it where ever they are living in the realms and come and tell me otherwise.
