The young girl was alone on the country road. She could see the farming landscape stretch serenely for half a mile in all directions. She noticed the grain fields on either side of the road. A golden hue was replacing the verdant landscape. Wild Alberta roses were still blooming alongside raspberry canes.
Dust billowed over her bare feet, warm as the sun caressing her bare arms. Climbing the steep hill up into the cloudless blue sky she considered what she would tell her mother about her new friends in grade three. They liked the pretty summer dress her mother had made, especially the cherries scattered along the hem.
She thought about the chores waiting for her when she arrived home. The hens would reluctantly allow her to snatch their eggs from under their warm bottoms. Peas needed to be picked and potatoes dug up for supper. She didn’t mind. Nor did she mind the almost two mile walk home from school. If she was outside, no matter the weather, she was happy.
It wasn’t until she reached the crest of the hill that she saw him. It was a shock. He was walking in the same direction as she. Why hadn’t she seen him on the road ahead of her before? If he had come through the fields, she would have noticed. She sized him up as being a stranger having unusual clothes. He walked leisurely. Nervously, she raced on past the stranger. He called to her.
In spite of being shy and not allowed to speak to strangers, the young girl quickly lost her fear. After a brief conversation, she walked down the driveway to her home. It suddenly struck her that this was no ordinary stranger. She ran back to the road, but the stranger was gone. It was then she knew she had met her guardian angel, or in later years, known as her spirit guide. Throughout her life, his special message for her remained unchanged and guided her, even at her darkest behavior.
That was the beginning of a journey down the road of the paranormal. Several years later, her guardian angel saved her from drowning. Lying on the bottom of a lake, exhausted from trashing to stay afloat, she heard him say, “If you stand, you can breathe.” She had just enough strength to straighten her legs before passing out. Her nose was just above the water.
She went on to experience space/time travel, telepathy, and connecting with higher beings. Later, she became a healer, sending healing energy on the wings of a higher power to people and animals across the planet. In her practice of meditation and shamanic journeys, she travelled to dimensions that defy description. Her experiences beyond the physical realm have profoundly affected her view of her life’s journey, and beyond.
Yes, the young girl was Feather Stone.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR…As a Canadian, Feather Stone was allowed the freedom to explore a kaleidoscope of infinite ways of being human. The only restrictions imposed by her parents were that racism was not acceptable and deliberately causing suffering to any other being or creature for any reason was not tolerated. Upon meeting her spirit guide when she was a child, Feather’s life became a journey of experiencing the paranormal. Through her practice of meditation, Reiki, and study of Shamanism, she’s been able to shift to dimensions that defy description.
On February 15, 2002, Feather was honoured to receive the Exemplary Service Medal from Lieutenant Governor Lois Hole (representative of HRH Queen Elizabeth II) for her service as a paramedic with Edmonton’s Emergency Response Department. She and her husband are now enjoying retirement and loving their sheltie, Jasper, and two cats, Smokey and Leo.
