For your child? C’mon you know you have one! A friend asked me that when Elatia was young, if I had a song for her when she was a baby. And indeed I did! For her it was David Bowie’s China Doll…or is it girl and I changed it to doll. Doesn’t matter. Elatia looked like a little China doll when she was born. Dunno how, since neither her father nor I have any Chinese in the family! But that’s not here nor there, My song for her was China Doll by Bowie.
On the way to meet Elatia I turned on the radio so Andrew could send me a song. On the way there I kept changing stations because I couldn’t find any songs I liked. Of course I was missing Andrew, I really wanted a song. I got nothing on the way there. I enjoyed my pedi with Elatia. She let Coh, her nail tech who also does my pedis do my pedicure. We usually fight over Coh when we go together for pedis. :-) But this tme she let me have Coh. She’s a good child! She brings no bother to the door….anymore. :-D
Coh is a muggle but very interested in all this “woo woo” stuff. I fascinate her. She let me talk about Andrew and she had questions. When we went to leave she gave me a big hug and said she was sorry for me yet happy for me. I knew what she meant. I thought it was very sweet of her. She got it. Sorry about the physical loss but happy that he is still so close.
We leave the salon to go get gas, then meet at my house to go to lunch. No song yet to the gas station. There was one song I was thinking might come on that he and I use to sing together. Now I’m thinking of another we use to sing together that I forgot about! We use to sing Shania Twain’s song “I Feel Like A Woman!” Seriuosly! We use to sing that one! ROFLMAO We had so much fun singing it together! I promised I wouldn’t tell CJ and Cory! Ooops my bad! Wait! He’s the one who just showed me that one! I just now remembered it thanks to Andrew! Still LMAO! Sorry Muck! You’re secrets out! You felt like a woman! Can’t stop ROFLMAO!!
*catches breath* Anyways, on the way home I’m still waiting for a song. Then I remembered what Martin has been telling me. When I miss Andrew, just visualize him there. SO I did! I could see him sitting next to me in the car like he always was and I put my hand out for him to hold it. The second I did that the most perfect song came on! I just started crying! Still holding his hand of course! What was the song?? Aerosmith’s “You’re My Angel” The song I had for him when he was a baby!
How perfect was that??? I totally forgot about that one. It was so perfect! He let me know that it truly was him and he was indeed sitting beside me! Martin was right! This visualizing really does work! I was expecting the song “I love you always forever” Dunno if that’s the title, dunno who sings it, some female singer. But I would sing that to him when it came on the radio when we were in the car.
Andrew wanted to prove to me that Martin was right! When I focus on who he is now I will be closer to him and the more I do it, the stronger the connection will get! If I stay in missing him and in grief, the further away it will take me from him! Hmmmm which one will I do??? The more I do focus on him now, I will eventually be having dialogs with him like Martin does & seeing him more! I choose B. focus on who he is now more!
Just another example of Andrew showing me to focus on what I want and NOT on what I don’t want. He’s a good teacher!
IT’S ALL GOOD! :-D :-D :-D :-D
So what is your song FOR Andrew? :) Your message got me thinking…I don’t have any songs for my kiddies.
And your changing channels looking for a message song for you from Andrew reminded me of something that happened with me. One day I was driving somewhere, and I wanted a message song from my guides/angels. And VERY often there are songs which feel like messages to me. So that day I kept changing radio stations, trying to fit some song into a message…LOL!! But nothing clicked. Nothing worked. You just KNOW when a song is for you. And then…it happened!! Guess what the song was? It was:
You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain
I’ll bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you?
LOL!!! :-P :-P :-P
LOL LOL LOL That is funny Swati!! Your Guides have a sense of humor!
Ahhhhh Swati, you get ahead of yourself! You will have to wait and see what the song is for Andrew. I must weave the story first! R U new??? :-D LOL
BTW Martin just said he was surprised it wasn’t something by the Monkeys!!! ROFLMAO!!
LOL!!!!!!!!!!!! I know!! There should have been some monkey song for me!! LMAO!!
“You’re My Angel” is such a LOVELY song! :-)))))))) And I am so glad you had that experience just as soon as you visualized Andrew sitting next to you. Hmm…I will try that too. I will visualize “Mr.Who-You-Said-Not-to-Chase-But-I-Can’t-Help-Chasing”. I shall not chase! I shall not chase! I shall not chase! Is visualizing equivalent to chasing again? :-P :-P :-P
Connie…I love your blog! I think I’ll just add your blog link to my blog.
Ahh songs for the children….my was and still is for all three of my boys, “You are my sunshine, my own sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray, you’ll never know (name insert here) how much I love you, please don’t take my sunshine away” La, La, La, La….
YOUR SO VAIN Swati…. that’s too funny, way funny! As that’s the farthest thing from whom you are! And when Connie asked if you WERE NEW, I was laughing, as by God, you are! Earth is most definitely a new experience for Swati the IA, lovin’ the food aren’t ya Miss Angel Girl! LOL :-) :-) :-)
This entry gave me absolute goose bumps! What a wonderful thing for Andrew to do for you! You are so blessed Connie.
I haven’t come up with songs for my kids…I made them up. I had a song for each that I would whisper-sing into their ear to calm them. We have songs we jam to together now, but no song for them yet.
Hi everyone – must have PMS today, because reading this made me cry… anyhoo, my song for Sarah was “Sarah Smile” by Hall and Oates, mostly because she was amazed to hear her name coming from the radio!
Karen T. – what about Angel Song and Zach’s Lullaby? How soon they forget… LOL
Connie – that song is actually titled I Love You Always Forever, and it’s by Donna Lewis. :) Had to Google it otherwise it was gonna drive me crazy(er). hahaha
That’s the one Leah! It always seem to be on the radio when we were in the car together & I’d sing it to him.
The songs for my kids just sorta happened, it wasn’t planned. It’s just a song that is on the radio when they are born.
I also made up songs to sing to them as well. I do it for my puppy too! :-p
Hmmmm Swati, visualizing I don’t think is the same as chasing. Martin said that is where “seeing” begins. Ya gotta start somewhere! :-D
Ok now I want to know who Swati is chasing?????? What did I miss?? Someone please put me out of my misery here……..
Connie, loving your words as always, the beauty and the loving energy of them. You are a star. Thinking of you and praying for all of you, everyday.
Have a safe trip to Ireland.
Love and hugs,
Oh you mean besides me Sandra?? LOL She is chasing the ever elusive (according to her anyways) AAM. She is constantly whin…I mean talking about trying to see AAM on the forum!
Thank you for your kind words!
Wow, that gave me chills. I just love that song….
Every so often I will invent a song for one of my cats by changing the lyrics of an existing song, and I even have a particular original one for Hannah. I guess I don’t qualify as “tone deaf” because I can tell that my voice drifts and changes tones and keys so I’m tone-aware-but-not-bound-by-tunes, I guess….
But when I sing, my cats tend to bolt! I think it scares them. Heck, sometimes I scare myself!
So I will think about that song and think of Andrew when I hear it, but promise Andrew I will not try to sing it just in case he’s visiting!
Love & light
When Andrew was little he did ask me once to not sing! LOL I am like you where I am tone aware but not bound by the tunes or tones! But there’s no money in that! LOL
Shania Twain is way better than taylor swift when it comes to country music.,’~
