kathleen ferrier blows in on a southerly breeze

21 09 2009

My days and nights are so full of soul rescuing and healing that I have been unable to find the time to record some of the more famous spirits here, but just to catch up….

On 21st July 2009 I was followed by a voice so hauntingly beautiful and heart wrenching in its intensity that it brought with it the same emotions which Susan Boyle evoked worldwide…  ‘Blow the wind southerly…’  (Could it be a message from my heavenly team to move south, to be nearer my parents in Cornwall, I wondered?)  I was left to find out for myself as The voice literally haunted me day after day.  Who was this woman? It was obvious that I would have to work for my story; one which I was destined to include in this blog, so I made a start by typing these song words into google, which in turn led me to various video’s on YouTube…

Just imagine how my heart skipped a beat the moment I clapped eyes and ears on to the face and voice of Kathleen Ferrier (1912-1953) and recognised her instantly!  Awash with love and emotion, I realised that I had been led to find the lost spirit of this courageous and talented woman, who had died before I was born.  My face buzzed and tingled as her spirit merged with mine, and those on the other side who had alerted me to her existence as a lost soul gathered round to give her a helping hand.

But she hung on to the Tree of Life with all her might.  Perhaps it was because she had loved life so much?  Perhaps it was because she had died so tragically young at the age of only forty one? Reading her biography she certainly clung tenaciously to this Tree during her life, performing on stage to the last, in spite of her pain from bone cancer.  The gale which now tugged at her hair as she clung to her tree seemed to emulate the song which she so perfectly performed…‘blow the wind southerly, blow bonny breeze oe’r  the bonny blue sea’…(The sea represents the spirit) and yet she still she clung to her memories …‘life, it comes on a deep rolling sea!’   Despite her friends and family beckoning from the other side she would not let go of that tree!

She sang so passionately ‘where do I begin to tell the story of how great a love has been?’   She sang of her love for life itself, for her voice, for her performance and for all those who still admireo her tremendous and powerful talent, through the media of records, dvd’s, books and (soul savingly!) through the wonders of modern website technology!  But heavenly voices blended with her own to take over the concluding words of her love song – ‘the sweet love story that is older than the sea’ and continued encouragingly, ‘we have no answers now but this much we can say, He fills our hearts with ver special things, with Angels’ sounds and wild imaginings’…‘She fills our souls with so much love that everywhere we blow we’re never lonely!’

This time, she willingly reconnected to her spiritual home:

She reached for their hands: they’re always there…

Great stuff, when will you be adding more? Always worth a read! Can you tune into Patrick Swayze?

Thanks for your comment Charlie. I checked in on Patrick Swayzee and he said simply “tell them I’m fine.”
