The world of psychics and mediums is a very complicated place. Some people think they’re all scammers who tell you, “you’ll eat lunch today,” and then charge you $200. Others, possibly more desperate people, believe every single thing a psychic or medium tells them to be true – even if they already eat lunch everyday. But there are also some people, including myself, who believe that certain people do possess a power to catch a glimpse of the future or the past, and truly want to share this gift with others. What they say should be taken with a grain of salt, but sometimes, what they have to say can bring peace of mind to those that are struggling. This one is short but sweet. It serves as a reminder that not all supernatural forces are horrifying.
XJ, recently lost his father to cancer. He was young – late forties – and the time between his diagnosis and his death was swift. His father was remembered as a plump, happy guy that really loved to sing. A few months passed and XJ and his mother were standing in their kitchen when his mom pointed to something on a perch right in front of their window. An incredibly fat bird that was definitely not native to Michigan was singing a beautiful song. The two laughed at the oddness of the situation, thought nothing of it, and returned to their daily life. The bird came by about once a month or so.
Being the only male in his house and sharing a great relationship with his dad, XJ struggled a lot with the loss of his father. He felt himself falling into depression, so in a desperate attempt to talk to his dad, he decided to see a psychic, and was sure to bring his own skepticism along. He only revealed the most basic information he could about himself; he didn’t tell the psychic his father had recently passed on. Not even a minute into their conversation, the psychic said to XJ, “Your father recently passed on, didn’t he? He visits you often, in the form of a bird. He sings to let you know that everything is going to be okay, just like he did when you were a child. He is ready to pass on to the other side, but won’t do so until he knows you are going to be alright.”
Within a month of their conversation, XJ sought help and felt himself slowly but surely rising out of the deep depression that was taking over his life. He saw the bird one last time, wiped tears from his eyes as he said goodbye, and never saw the bird again.
