It was Halloween night.
I had just arrived and was making final preparations in the old Santeria shop for the Seance.
We were full to capacity.
I was performing the Seance with a medium who is super talented named Aedan.
No one was really sure what to expect.
I had been to Aedan before, and knew her qualifications, and I had seen dead folks before, so I was not worried, but I had never done it with this many people.
I had been fasting for 2 days, for my ritual the following eve, so I was nicely disembodied.
As the door opened and all the people poured in, it looked like when you see heat waves rising from the desert. Vapours. The sadness was the first to hit me. It felt like moaning.
Then all kinds of whispering sounds, even though no one was talking.
We started out with a ritual for ancestors and a couple of techniques for how to contact the dead and speak with your DNA.
Then Aedan just started to talk.
So many people wanting to talk. Couldn’t keep them all straight. Faces around the circle with quiet desperation and hope.
First Aedan tuned into a napkin holder someone had brought. As she started talking about the napkin holder, I could see him. the man who had owned it.
I saw him fighting, arguing with his wife.
A dark haired man with a thin mustache, looks like John Waters I said. Exactly what he looked like said the client.
Aedan saw roses all over. They had indeed had a rose garden. They were talking to Aedan.
Aedan hopped back and forth shouting out names, asking if any one knew them. They were all saying their names to her, she was trying to keep up. Going from person to person.
As soon as someone would identify them as their own kin, she would start saying the messages.
I kept getting distracted, another co-worker was at the event. She had a spirit with her that was NOT a person, haha. I kept getting flashes of it in my periphery. It was huge and hairy. She worked with fairies. It was trying to tell me it was a person.
It looked like this:
I kept trying not to look at it.
I started to feel an intense pain in the side of my head. My left side. It was brutal, I had to turn around. I felt something there, physically.
Just then, Aedan said there was someone with a head trauma, and pointed to my left. Both of the people sitting to my left had lost loved ones to gunshot to the head. Aedan was talking to them. I saw two gangsters with shaved heads and tattoos. I asked one of them if it was gang related, it was she replied.
Aedan was seeing some pets, cats and dogs. Aedan saw more grandmothers.
A saw a man with the person next to me. he was an older man, hunched over, big nose. He was trying to talk to everyone but no one would listen. He had worked two doors down the person said. His spirit was laughing, he was happy to be a the seance he said.
We got someone’s grandma, she was a flapper Aedan said. I felt her right away. She was beautiful and rebellious. She was kind of naughty, ha. We talked with her for a bit. She was sad she wasn’t being spoken of.
We were running out of time, couldn’t get them all…. too many. Aedan asked if anyone had really needed to contact someone that hadn’t gotten to yet. An older woman raised her hand. Aedan started talking to her and I saw a face. It was of a sort of chubby man with a grey beard and rosy cheeks. he looked so nice. And then someone started shouting in my ear “Kevin! Kevin! Kevin!”.
I thought maybe it was the clients father, since Aedan was talking to her parents, they were both there. Aedan was conveying some things, but the woman kept saying she prayed he mother would give her a message she had been asking for, praying for all week, to have said at the seance. Aedan said that was all and was going to move on to the next person and finally I said,
“something about Kevin, was your dad’s name Kevin? No, not your dad, does anyone know a Kevin?”
And the woman’s face practically fell to the floor and she said “That’s it!! That’s the message I was waiting for!!”
But I couldn’t enjoy the moment with her, I kept getting tugged at by the left side of the room, something so sad over there, I didn’t want to keep going.
Just then Aedan said she was getting tired, so we closed the circle.
Aedan led a meditation, and as we all sent love to all the dead, and focused on our hearts, I saw a golden heart appear in the center of the circle, and Sunset blvd suddenly became completely quiet. Not a sound. A moment of silence, for those passed.
And then the spell was broken.
Afterwards I got an email from someone whose Grandma came through, she said at the end, at the heart meditation, her heart hurt. very badly, an intense pain. She had found out later her Grandmother had passed from a heart attack.
