Medium Connections: Cooking with Edith

Becoming Spirit again is a freeing transition that feels natural and peaceful. It is the embodiment of going home. Of returning to Self. The afterlife is a utopia of whatever you can manifest at your fingertips. For the most part, it’s a worry free existence, in which Oneness permeates to one’s very essence. Yet those we left behind stay with us as our love for them and understanding of them reaches new heights. We watch over them from the other side of the veil and long to be with them again. When I spoke with Edith, she perfectly conveyed the conflict of loving her life as Spirit yet wanting to be more active in the lives of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

Upon meeting her for the first time, she offered me a plate of food because that’s who she was. Edith was a small woman who rolled her hair in curlers to capture those tight timeless curls she was raised to recreate.

She loved through taking care of her family. She enjoyed feeding her husband, her children, and her grandchildren. Family dinners after church on Sunday were not only tradition but so was her timeworn apron that she wore to protect her Sunday dress.

She wants you to know that she’s not alone. She’s with her son, her parents, aunts, uncles, and great uncles and aunts. They gather together around the dinner table and spend time in each others’ company with some warm apple pie.

She tells me that she passed away to clotting issues. This could be heart attack, stroke, or embolism.

To one daughter: I am supposed to acknowledge heart and lung issues that are present and that the blood pressure is abnormal. She jested, “I want to see her but not that soon.” She wants you to take care of herself. This involves letting your mom, go.

Heartbreak can manifest as physical ailments and she knows how much heartbreak you’ve had over her passing. How you still grieve over her death. She wants you to know that she’s okay. She’s happy. She’s not in any discomfort. She said, “Move on. Live life.”

When she’s not trying to whisper in your ear the next ingredient in her family recipes, she likes to spend time outside in nature, and tending to her garden.

To other daughter: Find enjoyment out of life. Don’t work too hard. Take time for yourself. You will live for those memories once you transition. Take a class. Paint. Meditate. Do Yoga.

To her son-in-law: I know you won’t believe any of this [she winks].

To her granddaughter: I am supposed to acknowledge that she gifted you a jewelry box or some type of small treasure box. This is just her way of reminding you that she hasn’t forgotten you and how much she loved you.

To her grandson: I know that you’re going through things right now and a lot of people have been upset with you. Know that I understand what you’re going through. I get it. I’m with you. I miss you, too.

To those she didn’t identify by name: she has love for all of you. She didn’t forget about you.

Also, that baby will have her eyes. She gave that baby a piece of her.
