A hug from beyond

Updated: Nov 14, 2021

I think I've experienced what defies total logic and reality as I know it. A hug from Dad.

In the evening hours of December 2, 2020, I decide to meditate for the first time in six years. I quiet my mind and practice deep breathing. I’m soon feeling physical sensations of tingling through most of my body, and then an intense flutter.

My head begins to feel heavy and I feel compelled to allow it to drop to my chest. I don’t know why, but somehow I just recognize that I feel like my dad. Even my face feels different. It’s as if my brain is recognizing sensations that I feel don’t seem to be my own. I begin to notice an even deeper breathing and something that feels like a heaviness in my throat and chest. I feel an energy that is not my own.

Suddenly, I have an overwhelming compelling feeling to raise my head up. As I do, I experience a heightening of a feeling of love and light throughout my entire body. To be honest, those aren’t even quite the accurate words to describe this. The more I raise my head, the more intense the feeling. I then am compelled to raise my arms into the air. I do. It’s just the right arm at first because my brain is talking to myself about how insane this is. This thinking makes my arm drop and I feel like myself again. I just allow myself to sit in the silence and take some deep breaths. I talk to myself about how seemingly crazy this is, but something in my soul knows I'm experiencing something not created by my mind.

As my mind quiets, the sensations return and this time, I simply tell myself, “just let it be.” And with that, the compelling feeling to raise my arms in the air returns, and I just decide to turn off my brain, turn off my judgements, and just surrender to what I’m experiencing as an observer. I feel compelled to raise both my hands up in the air and so I do, and with that, I immediately have the strongest desire to hug the air in front of me. As I do, the overwhelming feeling of love is so present in me that I am unable to stay in the moment and I literally collapse in tears on the floor.

What just happened to me feels like a true miracle and the most incredible gift I could ever imagine. I think I hugged my dad.

Nature defined: The natural forces that control what happen in the world; A creative and controlling force in the universe; An inner force or the sum of such forces in an individual; The external world in its entirety.

Nature’s Way is beautiful. Read on and be inspired by the journey. The way is through the heart.

About my Nature's Way journey 


On Nov 1, 2020, my dad moved from this world to the next. He was a fun-loving man who always could have a good laugh under any circumstance (he laughed his way through his final days), an avid outdoorsman and lover of nature, and he was known for his physical strength and bravery, not to mention his voice. He was my perfectly imperfect Dad. In a way, his death was a two year journey experienced together that continues. Twelve hours before my dad passed away, I experienced an inexplicable force of nature while holding his hand. 

After he passed, Dad began to use nature to open me up to a greater reality, helped me to understand my true nature, and is leading me to walk through life filled with love, joy, and peace, unafraid to speak my truth.

I like to say that Dad was led home, and me open. Open to Divine love, full presence to life, and connecting to those in the world just beyond ours. From beyond the veil, my dad has led me on a completely unexpected transformational journey to my inner Light, and I share that journey here.
