Shifting from Grand Mal to Grandma

Please enjoy Yvonne’s Shift Experience in this three part series.

I began my metaphysical studies in 2001. That is the same year my first biological grandson, Sidney, was born to my son, Zeb, and his wife, Amanda. Little did I know how much that sweet child would influence me to allow my spiritual gifts to start flowing once again.
Sidney manifested psychic gifts at an early age. In fact, Sid was able to communicate with me telepathically from the time he was born. He exhibited the gift of premonition at about age nine months, He was able to see spirits and used a magic potion to heal a crippled dog at age three. When he would spend the night at my house, he would wake up and tell me about his astral travel. But to top it all off he channeled his higher self at age three!
We were driving down the road when he said, “You and grandpa were married once, weren’t you?”
“Yes,” I said, “and we have two children: your dad and Aunt Say-Say.”
“You were supposed to have three,” he said in a very grown up voice.
I immediately remembered the time in 1978 when I thought I might have been pregnant. Back then, home pregnancy kits weren’t that reliable and they were expensive. I was about to schedule a doctor’s appointment to have a blood test, but I never got that far. I started bleeding and having terrible cramps, so I assumed I was not pregnant or else I was having a miscarriage, but I never knew for sure until Sid said, “You wouldn’t let me in.”
Oh, my god, I thought to myself. I was pregnant! I did have a miscarriage. Sidney is the soul who would have been born to me years ago.
“Oh, Sidney,” I said. “I’m sorry my body told you not to come then, but I am very glad you are my grandson now.”
“You let my daddy and aunt Say-Say in,” Sid insisted.
I gulped to keep from crying. “Sidney, you are a special child with supernatural gifts. If you had come to me as my son in 1978, I would not have been able to nurture you in your spiritual path. I would have done everything to stop you from being who you are. It really is best that you are with me now and not back then.”
None of this stuff was referenced in the Bible that I had so tenaciously clung to for 40 years. I had to shift my thinking in order to accept this “old soul” (as he called himself) into my life.
I learned so much from him that I wrote a series of stories for and about Sidney. He is the inspiration behind The Sid Series ~ A Collection of Holistic Stories for Children. I invite you to read the book and share the stories with your children and grandchildren.

    This just gives me the chills… good chills that Sidney said you wouldn’t let him. His coming into the world when he did was all the right timing… what gift he has been to you… and you to him.
