There are times we hear about young children, who have moved on to the next realm all of a sudden. In some cases there are parents who come to know in advance that their child may part them due to the seriousness of an illness. What about if a child tells the parents that he or she will be leaving this earth to be on the other side? It can more frightening and painful for the parents to handle those situations.
I just read a book “There’s More to Life than This” by the Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo. She has related the sad story of a boy named Julien, who was diagnosed with AML Leukemia when he was three and half years old. He parted his parents when he was eight years old. Here is the extract of what Julien had told his mother.
Julien’s contact with Heaven reads like a who’s who of Spirit, A month after his fourth birthday and first bone marrow transplant, Julien’s family and doctors thought he was out of the woods, though he was about to relapse. This is when Julien began getting messages from God, through a female Spirit he later identified in a book as the Blessed Mother. There are two messages that Julien’s mom knows of. The first occurred shortly after Julien’s transplant, when he said, “Maman, I have something to tell you, but I’m afraid it will make you sad. God came to me in a dream and said I had to come back soon. He said my leukemia has returned and my time here is over.” This was surprising news, since Julien’s mom thought his transplant would help him recover. Not long after this dream, Julien heard from the Blessed Mother again, but this time, she was crying. She told him that when he died, his mom would be very sad but eventually be okay.
Two days later, Julien’s doctor found abnormal cells from a bone marrow aspiration. Sure enough, the boy’s dreams were prophetic. Julien’s mom was devastated and prayed for a miracle. She took him to the shrine of St. Padre Pio in Pennsylvania. When she saw Julien holding the hand of, and whispering to, a Padre Pio statue in the gift shop, she bought it for him and put it in the backyard (Julien and his statue were the same height). Two months after their trip, Julien dreamed of a two-year-old boy who came to play with him and tell him about a conversation that God had with Padre Pio about Julien’s future. Julien then asked the boy if he should follow him to Heaven, and at the time, the boy said that Julien was not ready. Julien’s mom now believes the boy was actually an angel sent to bridge our world and Heaven for her son, when it was his time to go.
Julien’s encounters with Spirit weren’t limited to highly evolved souls. Every time he was in severely critical condition, he asked his mom if she could see “them” and looked toward the ceiling; he whispered to the sky a lot. When his mom worked up the nerve to ask who “they” were, he said one of the beings was his mom’s friend Jackie, who died on 9/11. When she asked where Jackie was, he answered as if it were obvious: “Mommy, she is right there next to you.” Jackie died before Julien was born; he’d never met her.
Julien and his mother did not discuss angels or God again, until the weeks before he died. At that point, he told his mom he was scared to leave her, but she “had his heart,” and he was going to a beautiful place.” Julien told her all the time that he chose her to be his mom, and that God pointed her out and said that if he selected her, she’d take care of him. He talked a lot about “one God for everyone.” Julien’s mom believes that her son was a gift, sent to help her and others believe in God and the afterlife. In the middle of the night recently, her niece awoke to a sparkling light in her room and an image of Julien’s face, smiling” just inches from her Own. He was with his mom’s friend Jackie.
When I channelled Julien, he told me that his mom never treated him like he was sick and always made sure he was happy. She let him leave when it was time, and he said he had a beautiful passing. He could feel his mother’s heart beating when his stopped.
