I have been channeling for nearly 30 years and have been channeling my Mom for about a year and a half (she died 2 years ago). She told my son that his pet turtle would live until my son is a real old man (my son had asked her how long the turtle would live). The turtle died yesterday! My son is not an old man but a child so now I am totally confused and don't know who we have been talking to! She sounds like my mom, looks like my mom projected over me, has my mom's mannerisms, etc, so what is going on? Please help.
My son has had many visions of her since she passed away and I felt they were real as he looked shocked then would announce, "There's Nana!" and describe what he saw. She appeared old to him at times (she was old when she passed), other times middle aged, other times young. He had never seen her as young or middle aged when she was physically alive as she was already in her 70's when he was born and passed when he was 8 years old so there is no way he could have been imagining her as young or middle aged.
I felt he was seeing her manifesting to him. He said she always looked happy and smiling at him. He was comforted by it. I have smelled her scent many times and have felt the cool breeze of her near me when I have smelled her scent. I have not seen her other than when in trance and looking into the mirror where I have seen her image projected over my face. I heard her say to our dog early one morning, "Back" which is what she used to say to her when she was alive and trying to get from room to room on her walker when the dog was laying in the way.
My son and I were very close to my mom in life and I took care of her in her final years during all of her illnesses. I couldn't bring myself to channel her until about 6 months after her passing as I was too grief-stricken over her death. Now due to this turtle situation I don't know if I have been channeling her or if I am nuts (that would make my son nuts too as her has sworn it is her he sees and hears during the channeling (I consciously remember each channel too and it sounds like, feels like and looks like her). It has now left us wondering what is going on. Even my son said to me "I don't know who it is talking through you because Nana wouldn't lie to me!" after the turtle died. I feel horrible about that as I don't want my son to be terrified over some evil spirit impersonating my mom and I don't want him looking at me as a nut. He hasn't said either but I worry about that. So please help. I need all the insights I can get to help me figure this out. Thanks and love to all.
