My brother, Patrick, died when I was 5. He was 19.
I am now 47 and have 4 children. The oldest, Quinn, is 15.
As soon as Quinn was born, I felt that I knew that he was Patrick. This knowledge stayed with me always, despite learning certain things such as "our relatives wait for us in heaven and we all reincarnate at the same time", and despite that fact that when I visited with a medium, my brother Patrick came through loud and clear. I wondered how my brother's soul could be my son's soul if it was obvious that he was still on the other side and speaking to me via a medium. Still, I felt that there was some sort of loophole and that they are one in the same.
My theory strengthened as my son grew older and had many of the same personality traits, taste in music (60's and 70's), and even chose to see my brother's favorite singer (Don McLean) in concert for his most recent bday gift.
In recent years, I heard a few televised mediums say to others things similar to, "the baby daughter you lost 4 years ago is here and she is saying that part of her soul is in your newborn son."
What? I am confused. I know that we all have a soul here in our bodies and a Higher Self portion of our soul on the other side, so was the televised medium actually speaking to the Higher Self of the deceased daughter due to the daughter's soul being back on earth in the newborn son? Is the daughter's soul reincarnated? Can she have a part of her soul in that newborn boy and in someone else, say another baby that would be born to that mother? Do our souls split? Or is it just the one soul and the Higher Self that accompanies it that comprise the "soul"? How come I never hear mediums saying, that they are talking to us on the other side as we sit in front of them. "Your Higher Self tells me that..." I would think they would use that lingo- or something like, "Umm... Let me see, I'll ask you and then give you your answer." I'm absolutely not picking on mediums here even tho it may sound like it.
I have psychic experiences and recently my brother Patrick came to me and showed me a glimpse of himself and spoke to me. He sort of whizzed by my left eye and told me that a package I had forgotten I was going to be getting, was on the porch. It arrived several hours later, on the porch, of course.
My brother only showed me his hair (which looks much like my son's but is a tad darker) and his shirt. He had on my son's uniform shirt. He showed me himself with his hair and my son's shirt. I was so happy to know that they are connected and that he wanted me to know that. I just don't know how it works.
Do any of you have any thoughts on this?
Thank you! Michelle
P.S. Not that his matters to the story but I think it is interesting- the package was a Bose music station which also charges an IPOD. He called it a "recharger". "The recharger is on the front porch," he said. I thought that was funny and knew there was no way I imagined it because I would never use the word "recharger" and I wouldn't describe the Bose music station as an IPOD charger, because to me, it is more of a speaker and the charging part is secondary.
