Here is a wonderful story of hope and connection. It filled my heart with such joy and comfort that I couldn’t run to the computer fast enough to post it. Thank you, Stephanie, for sharing this miraculous story with the rest of your Channeling Erik family!
I had the most awesome experience last night, and you are the first person (outside of those who witnessed it), that I wanted to share it with.
My husband and I took our kids to Kennywood (amusement park) last night. We rode a water ride and I got pretty soaked. A few minutes after getting off of that ride, a beautiful butterfly landed on the sleeve of my t-shirt. This has NEVER happened to me, and I thought it was so neat.
Said butterfly proceeded to get comfortable – he was drinking water from my shirt. He was so calm and unafraid it was eerie. People kept coming up to me to look at it and talk about it. I didn’t want to disturb him, so we stood in the same position for almost 15 minutes.
My kids were then anxious to ride more rides so we started walking around. My new friend came along. People were pointing and some people even asked if they could take a picture.
At one point he flew away, but came back about 30 seconds later, which just blew my mind. This time he landed on the front of my shirt. He remained there for about another 15 minutes until my 10 year old begged me to ride a fast ride with her.
I didn’t want the butterfly to be hurt by the velocity, so I put my finger on my shirt, he got on my finger (again, I was amazed!) and I gently placed him on the branch of a pine tree.
Riley and I rode the ride. I can’t explain this, but I was feeling very sad and heavy hearted. I kept these feelings to myself, because it sort of seemed silly. A couple of minutes later, Riley said, “Mom, I feel really sad right now”. I love that girl!!
Anyway, sorry to be so long winded, but I feel so changed by that experience. I only wish I knew who the butterfly was!
Hope you are having a nice weekend!
I plan to ask Kim and Erik to share this butterfly’s identity during my next session and will keep you all informed!
