The Journey

As I stood in the shower with the warm water running down my face and body I felt myself drifting into a trance like state.

I was aware of my surroundings , but I felt as though I was out of my body in a spiritual way. There was no pain, no sounds only that of the gentle water trickling in the shower.
I began to float further away into what seemed as colorful clouds and a sense of others presence but unseen to me. I would hear gentle whispering voices but unable to understand what they or who was speaking or was I just hearing this all in my mind! I wasn’t sure either way but only knew I was out of my body in a spiritual out-of-body experience or something near that.
I began to panic and reaching towards the voices but not feeling or sensing anyone near me only the sound in the distance.


I knew now that I was no longer in the shower for I could see myself or my body laying in the shower with my eyes closed; To me I looked **dead **and I began to panic again! “Whats happening to me, Where Am I ?” At that moment I felt and heard a gentle voice and felt a touch on my right shoulder and as I turned toward the touch I could hear this soft yet masculine person or spirit say to me
“Dear sweet daughter I have been waiting and watching over you for a long time and now you have come”. At that split moment I thought to myself; Daughter who’s daughter who is this and who’s talking to me?
Then suddenly I felt another touch on my left shoulder and was gently turned completely around, my eyes closed for a brief second and opened again when I heard a distinct mans voice say “ **YOU** are here my daughter because your work is finished on earth and you are needed here, So many have waited a long time for you to come and complete your mission with them. Again I thought what mission? Who? What is this person talking about? My mind was spinning wondering who is this person that calls me daughter and touched my shoulders . Then suddenly a bright light in the distance was glowing and seem to be growing at the same time while moving closer to this person who called me daughter and myself. We both watched as the glow became closer and more vivid in colors, colors that I have never seen nor dare try to explain.
Within seconds the glow was about upon us and diminished into a soft mist then suddenly appeared what looked like people sorta but semi-ghostly like spirits I have seen in movies or pictures, Then as I turned my head to see the person who called me daughter ; I actually seen his face with features and legs, arms, hands, but all mystic like, like a spirit! Then suddenly It hit me, I RECOGNIZED this spirit as that of my Father! My birth father the one who with my mother gave birth to me!!! The one who Died when I was only 18 months old!

Then it hit me! I too have passed over and now hopefully in heaven or some glorious realm. I heard some faint voices again and noticed a group of people were walking or floating toward me and I could make out they were a mix of male and female personages. A un familiar feeling came upon me that I felt from my head to my toes surged thought out my body and I almost felt like I was going to pass out; At that same instant my Father gently grabbing both my hands said you are overcome with the spirit of joy and love and knowing that you are home now. I looked upon his face for the first time and I knew and recognized it to be truly my father , whom I never met but yet knew somehow through pictures, family stories and if I dare mention several visits that he has come to me day and night! I felt the tears build up in me my heart pounding yet filled with over whelming joy and love that I can’t begin to describe or barely speak of! I noticed the group of people were walking towards me now and could hear voices whispering gently and hear my name several times. I decided to walk towards them also and as I was in front of them now I began to recognize those as past family members mostly ones that I have NEVER meet!

They greeted me with open arms, tears, and just speaking through our hearts! No words had to be spoken we could understand each other in our minds and our hearts! I thought to myself I’m HOME, This is what my Grandmother was trying to tell me, my Great Grandfather, My Father, all have spoken to me at different times and ways telling me what I need to do and where I need to be but It was up to me to figure it out, to follow my heart, to listen to the prompting, the small voices!!


It all made sense now I was here for a reason, a mission, and purpose and I was with my family that have waited so long to be together. To see my Father to touch him speak with him and feel his love for me and more!! I felt no pain, no guilt, nor shame I felt whole completely loved and accepted for who I was .
I thought again Is this a dream, wake up! But deep in my heart and soul in my total being I knew I was truly home and where My Father wanted me to be and the others lovingly waiting for me to complete my journey to begin another.

I’ve heard of people talking about life beyond the veil on the other side and visitations and visions but never knew for sure, but yet having several of my own ALL of this journey made sense! My life on earth served a purpose I had created a family with my husband and felt I did ok, The best I knew at least.
Again faintly I heard my Father speak it is time to go with the others now and he reached for my hand and as I placed my hand in his I felt the warmth and tender love we had between us and gently we approached the other family members and walked towards another soft glowing light of strange colors and I noticed flowers appearing, gardens, animals of all kinds, buildings like I have never seen before, soft musical sounds or notes, and I noticed in the far off distance it seemed like, looked like two people in a distance by themselves above the beautiful buildings and mesmerizing colorful mountains in the shadows behind them, They appeared to be male dressed in stunning white loose clothing surprisingly I could feel their presence and love for all!  It was all so glorious and for lack of words heavenly! I could only Imagine! Heavenly, Yes this was Heaven or it seemed to me this is the place the place where I want to be with my Father and family to live in love, joy, acceptance and total Glory!
This is my Journey, My Dream come true, My answer to my prayers.
This is a” New Beginning” Not an End.
We are ALL on this Journey and the Journey to come.

  1. Such a hopeful story. I like the idea of the colors the main character couldn’t even describe. The transference of thought and conversation without words. The promise of a new beginning.

  2. Awesome story! Loved it! I could see it in my mind just as you described it! Thanks PK for joining in on the #ShortStoryPromptLinkParty 2! Shared ♥
