Our imagination allows us to dream and create. Allows us to form mental images of that which is beyond our current reality or known senses. Allows us to confront and analyze certain situations or problems. Allows us to idealize or envision any number of scenarios. For it is from our imagination that we allow our spirit to be all that it wishes or longs to be, all that it is meant to be.
It was through Melissa Leath’s imagination as a little girl that visions and voices would seemingly come, as no other explanation would be known–until a number of years later. It wasn’t until she was in her thirties that she would learn how her imagination was so much more than simply the mind at play.
Throughout her childhood, Melissa played with imaginary friends and created a world where anything was possible. In my interview of Melissa, she recalled how she and a childhood playmate would often sit and talk in a particular pear tree, one with the best of limbs on which to climb. At the end of one of its branches formed a gnarly shape that looked like a foot and a peering knot that always seemed to be looking back at them, and so the tree was forever more addressed as Mr. Foot-Eye.
Reflecting back upon those early years of imagination and play, Melissa shared with me that she really never thought it to be anything more until later on in life. It was during a psychic development class actually that her imagination would become more intuitive. While guided in a meditation, visions of children carrying a pail and a milk cow came to mind. What a silly thing to think about she thought until the class began discussing their visions. When Melissa was asked to share her thoughts, she shrugged them off as pure imagination until the instructor said that it was something more, that it was about his childhood. He and his sister had the chore of tending to the cows when young. With her having since passed, he believed it a validation from the spirit world that his sister was near him still. What a blessing it was to receive such a confirmation, not only of eternal life, but of her own innate abilities.
Melissa embarked upon a spiritual journey that would lead her to one day even teach others to do the same thing.
