A tradition of my childhood Easters was visiting Elmore’s 5 & 10, as it stocked the most colorful array of egg baskets in my hometown of Enterprise, Alabama. As a young boy, it was pure magic to select my annual purchase in a store that was also sprinkled with the aroma and sounds of popcorn fresh from the kettle.
Weathered hardwood floors served as the foundation for a once thriving business that sold everything from sewing kits to car wax. Although it’s long since been the end of an era, the emporium still manages to delight me in thought.
While visits to a treasured 5 &10 bring back youthful memories, it’s my Easter vacation to Palm Springs eight years ago that registers the strongest with me now. It’s when my world changed forever; I had a spiritual awakening that was almost beyond belief (at the time, it probably was!). Most significantly, it was when I discovered my special intuitive gifts.
I’ve mentioned my account of that fateful trip to many of my psychic consultation clients (and, it’s covered in great detail in the book I plan to publish). By being open and honest about my own spiritual encounters, it’s helped me to better assist others with their own, unique life journeys.
Now, when Easter rolls around, I give thanks to God and for what transpired in my life eight years ago. After that experience, I felt reconnected with the part of me who believed in all things possible.
Just like the little boy once did roaming the aisles of the Elmore 5 & 10.
Love and light,
