An energy reading and a very detailed interpretation of the reading were presented to me by Janet Nestor, holistic healer and author of Pathways to Wholeness.

Janet is a supporter of Just a Cloud Away, Inc. Journal offering articles not typically accepted by mainstream society. If you are willing to open your mind to the possibilities, please do consider speaking with her regarding your losses.

Because my son died at birth, any memorabilia, pictures, descriptions are very much welcomed. A few photographs were taken of him at birth, clipping of hair, ashes, foot and hand prints and it just isn’t enough for a mother. Below is an energy reading where Janet connected with my little angel on August 3rd, 2010.

Tanner, son of Diana Gardner-Williams

Tanner has a whole lot to say. His senses are all operational from the spirit realm. His is connected to spirit, his listening ears are wide open for communication. He has a lot to say about a lot of things.

The blue orb at the third eye…inner eye. He is like a magnet. He intuits everything and is able to process through the center better than any others. His vision is full spectrum vision. He sees everything on all at once….many levels of seeing and understanding and had the ability to communicate what he sees and understands.

Colors:

Peach-he is social. Likes to be part of the mix. Also patient and kind and you can feel his love and compassion without hardly trying. He is shadowy in structure, but when he communicates you can hear and communicate with him.

Light pink/lavender-He is vibrant. He has a lot to say/intuit/process. He likes where he lives and is exactly where he is supposed to be. This is his world. He is comfortable within his world. He knows his way around.

The light blue in his energy field-it is his level of permanence. He is ever-present in your life, will remain ever-present in your family life as long as this family exists. He is part of the family and enjoys his interactions. He has a sense of humor. He can pop in and out and does.

His spiritual body seems to be a thought form. He is light and airy. He has great wisdom, which he will share if you listen to what he has to say. It is not infant wisdom, but wisdom of spirit that is collective in nature. He really does not seem to be identified with his human body at all. He is identified with his spiritual being and that life.

Notice his eyes and the fact that they appear alert. They are alert. The line through his eyes is a boundary of sorts. Reflects his deep insights. He will not interfere in what is not his to see and hear. He stays back unless invited. He is not hesitant. But he is respectful of privacy and of his role. As a child one might have called him timid, but not silent. Shy, but not withdrawn. Funny, but not a clown and center of attention.

The only thing he misses is the ability to cuddle. He would have loved touch and still likes touch although it is not the same. He will snuggle in close to you if he can…almost feel like a part of you. You might notice when he is around because he likes to be so close. He would loved to be noticed in those moments, but he does not seek to be noticed.

He is both child energy and very wise energy all rolled up into one spiritual being. His identity in this life is one of infant child. His spirit identity is ages old. A lovely mix of innocence and aged wisdom.

I cannot thank you enough Janet. These words are precious to me and gives my being another purpose and understanding of my child. This is tangible and will be cherished upon my alter for him.

Funeral and Memorial Flowers are so beautiful and add something special to the service. The various fragrance and colors provide and uplifting element honoring a loved one passed.

These arrangements can be preserved and displayed in a custom frame, ornament, or table top mount for friends and family members.

Gina’s Freeze Dried Flowers, LLC  has the equipment, expertise and passion for providing  flower keepsakes for those grieving the loss of a loved one. The custom floral preservation enables  family and friends to take home a precious memorial flower.

The sooner Gina receives the flowers (1-4 days after the service), the higher the success rate ensuring original color preservation. Leaves, berries and grasses within the bouquets can also be freeze dried. Gina will pick up the flowers if located in the Jamestown/High Point  area or individuals can drop off to Gina’s Workshop.

This type of memorial keepsake may be a thoughtful sympathy gift for bereaved parents of miscarried or stillborn babies. Pregnancy and infant loss leave parents with a very small number of tangible objects reminiscent of their babies.

Gina can customize your  flower arrangements with the appropriate background color and frames selected by the family. She can also add; obituaries, poems, prayer books, bible versus, pictures or any other keepsake memento within the flower bouquet.

Single flower ornaments are options  if several family members or friends would like a keepsake memento created from the funeral flowers.

Almost any flower can be freeze dried expect for coneflowers, daisies, and black-eyed susans.

The freeze dried flowers will last 75 years if the are not dropped, and not kept in rooms with high humidity and direct sunlight.

If you have a memory garden with several flowers you would like preserved, follow the instructions below.

  • Prune the flowers at an angle
  • Prune a rose within the middle stage, just after the bud has begun to open
  • Prune in early morning or late evening
  • Place in refrigerator, not a freezer (if your lettuce is frozen, the temperature is too low)
  • Do  not place the flowers by the blower

Wait 1 more day before pruning the rose below.

Because flowers from a memory garden are not in a professional bouquet, Gina will artfully arrange the blooms.

It is not uncommon for Gina to provide a keepsake for a bereaved family of pet loss.

The cost of Gina’s Freeze Dried Flowers start at $30.00 for an ornament and the process of drying is slow and often takes 2 to 3 months.

Thank you for offering the Piedmont Triad with this artistic method of preserving beautiful memorial bouquets.

Peace Love and Hugs

Heartstrings is a local support group for those suffering from the loss of an infant, pregnancy or stillbirth. Tracey Holyfield, the founder of this much-needed support group, began the organization stemming from her own sorrow.

Every year many volunteers and bereaved families gather together to walk, listen, read and remember the lives of so many babies who briefly stayed with us physically.

Not only is this a special time to remember and honor tiny lives, the money raised helps this non-profit program to thrive and continue to support the families suffering pregnancy and infant loss.

Vendors providing products and services to assist bereaved families also attend the annual walk.

Memorial jewelry to remember the angelversary  birthstone.

Special ornaments with the child’s name are hung on the tree during the brief service.

This year the ornaments were beautifully hand carved from wood.

A bereaved father was able to share a song he composed for his angel playing an acoustic guitar. The area was so quiet and still while he shared the heartfelt words with reference to a snowflake.

Heartstrings has many needs and if you feel you could offer support , please contact Tracey.  An extra pair of ears could be just what a bereaved family needs from you.

Peace Love and Hugs

Diana
