My friend Danielle has seen the same spirit figure her whole life. He is big, imposing, and strong. She sees his body, but never his face. He’s been near her, showing himself to her, since she was a little girl. She’s moved from house to house, state to state, and always he’s been there.
A week ago, while in bed, she felt someone touch her ear. She thought that it was her husband next to her. She’s never liked her ears being touched, and before opening her eyes she said, “why are you doing that when you know I hate it?” But when she did open her eyes, she saw her husband’s hands were nowhere near her. Her husband then said: “Did you see that?” He’d seen a spirit, a spindly, sickly shape, dash out of the room.
Danielle was really upset by this. When I saw her about a week later, she told me everything. Intuitively and through channeling, I came to understand what was happening.
The spirit, whose name, I learned, is Mah, had been her husband in her most recent past life. Together in that life they had shared an epic love, one of fairy tales and wishes and dreams. And when he died, before her, he could not bear to leave her. He stayed with her for the rest of her life. Then, after she died, he waited for her to return. He waited for her in the home where they’d lived and the landscape around their house. When she did return, when she was born as Danielle, he went to her and has been with her since — protecting her, loving her, wanting only for her to be happy and safe, and wanting her, more than anything, to know him.
In that life, he often tenderly touched her ear. That was his way of adoring her. And subconsciously, in this life, she knew that. That sign of affection was something reserved only for him. No one else could touch her there. Only him.
In their past life together, Mah had been tall and muscular. In this life, in spirit form, he would only present himself in his full, beautiful stature to Danielle. To Danielle’s husband, when he saw him only once a week ago, Mah projected himself as meager and weak. This was so he would not be recognized and would not seem a threat. Mah never showed Danielle his face, though. He desperately wanted her to feel him and intuitively know who he was. To him, that would be a sign of her true love.
Mah was a spirit attachment who had clung through time and space to another soul. He had a very personal connection to his beloved soul mate, Danielle.
Today, I went to Danielle’s house to invite Mah to return to the spirit realm.
When I walked in, I greeted Danielle then immediately greeted Mah: “I am a friend of Danielle, Mah. I’m here to clear the house of spirits. Danielle has been feeling afraid lately, and we want her to feel safe and happy.” I could feel his welcome.
As a channel, I cleared the house. Then I invited Danielle to sit with me and invited Mah to join us. I felt his surprise and great pleasure at being acknowledged and included.
Me: Mah, do you see the spirits of love?
Me: Mah, these are escorts, and they are here for you. They have come here today to invite you home.
Mah: No. No. I don’t want to leave her.
Me: I know. I know you don’t. I understand. I know how much you love her. And I have told her. She knows, Mah. She knows who you are and that you are only here because you love her so much. And that is what you wanted her to know, isn’t it?
Mah: Yes. Yes. That is all I’ve ever wanted her to know.
Me: Would you like to speak with her? You can talk to her directly. I know that that is what you want. Now is your chance. Please, talk to her. She is open.
Danielle: I am. I’m ready.
Mah, through me: I love you. I love you so much. I have only ever loved you. My love for you is so strong. I have always been with you. Always, to protect you and keep you safe. I am your true guardian angel because you are my angel. You are my light. I love you. I know that I have scared you before. Please know that I never meant to scare you. I just wanted you to know that I am here. That’s all I have ever wanted. And now I can tell you. Now you know.
Danielle: Yes. I do know now.
Me: Danielle, Mah loves you and trusts you. Please, let him know that you will be ok, that he can be free and that that is what you want for him.
Danielle: I do want that. I know that you love me. I feel that love so strongly. But I want you to be free. I want you to grow and advance and be free. You don’t need to stay here with me anymore. I appreciate that you have been here, but you can go now. It’s ok.
Me: Mah, you can love her from the spirit realm. You can watch over her and protect her while you also do your own work as a soul. You can be there and be here too, and you can trust that your love will reach her.
Mah: Yes. Ok. I understand. I understand.
Me: The spirits of love are here for you Mah, to take you safely home. You can go with them now. You are free. Danielle is letting you go, in love, knowing who you are, and she is wishing you to be free.
Mah: Yes… I love you… I will go… I love you.
The spirit escorts, the spirits of love, wrapped around him and gently, so sweetly, carried him home. It was a moment so full of love, so full of peace, that it is hard to describe. A hush filled the room — a hush of promise and potential, of love past and love present, of long-postponed freedom, filled up the room and then whispered, even more quietly, away.
Mah is home now and free. And Danielle feels more special and more loved than ever before.
