I dedicate this site to the memory of my stepdaughter, Heather, who was murdered on Thanksgiving 2017. I want to chronicle some of the events and spiritual insights that happened. It is my hope that this may help some other souls who stumble upon this site. Maybe some good can come off this after all (read more here).  ~ May 2018

Messages: A radio cannot be turned off, everything moves in circles, our paths will cross again

This is part of a series of posts  I call it "messages from the other side," which deal with strange events happening after the deaths of loved ones.

After Heather’s death, many such things happened; this is one of the strangest and most inexplicable ones. The following happened about a month after her death, around 9:45am on Wednesday 12/27/2017. I and my son witnessed it.

In the morning, around 9:00am I was downstairs and heard some music playing in the upstairs bedrooms.  I did not think much of it, and thought it was my son playing something on his radio. 

About 30 Minutes or so later, I went back in the kitchen to get some tea, and I still heard the music. So I went upstairs to check.  The music came from our bedroom, not my son’s.  My alarm clock/radio was playing.  I thought, “Oh, maybe it’s an alarm that had come on,” so I checked.  Only, the radio was not in the alarm setting.  It was just playing.  Even stranger: it was not even set to ‘play,’ but to ‘off’ !  

And here is the really strange part: I could not get it to turn off at all. I tried all the settings, turned all the switches and knobs, but there was no way to turn off the radio… 

It simply would not turn off.  

(And just to say: there had never been any problems with that radio, not before, not since. It always worked perfectly. This was the ONLY time there was a problem. )

When I first checked, some song in English was playing. And then a song in German came on.  (more on that later)…  

So I went into my son’s room and woke him up.  I told him about the radio:  “Did you maybe turn on the alarm clock?” “No.”   So we both went back into the bedroom, and we triple checked that it was not a setting on the device. It was not. The radio could not be turned off.

And then I got it: “Maybe this is another message? Why don't I just pay attention and listen to that song.”  And so I did.  It was still that same song that started to play when I initially came into the room. I caught the last few verses. And I was stunned.  What I heard was this:

German original My translation
Ey, wenn sich alles in Kreisen bewegt
Dann gehst du links, dann geh' ich rechts
Und irgendwann kreuzt sich der Weg
Wenn wir uns wiederseh'n
Hey, when everything is moving in circles
Then you go left, then I go right
And at some time the path will cross
When we see each other again
Ey, wenn sich alles in Kreisen bewegt
Dann gehst du links, dann geh' ich rechts
Und irgendwann kreuzt sich der Weg
Bis wir uns wiederseh'n
Hey, when everything is moving in circles
Then you go left, then I go right
And at some time the path will cross
Until we see each other again

I was blown away!  The meaning of this in this very situation, after Heather’s death, was uncanny.  And I started crying.

To me, this was yet another message from Heather, something along these lines :  “Hey, I made this damn radio come on  (just like all the other things I made happen), so that you have to listen to this song.  I am still here. Tell Mom!  And know this: at one time our paths will cross again, and we will see each other again.”

Now, I had heard that song before on the radio, but I never paid attention to the lyrics.  So immediately after this happened, I went and looked it up on the internet.  

It was the song “Kreise“ (meaning "Circles") by Johannes Oerding.  Below are the lyrics and the video.  It’s a beautiful song about two people, connected by blood or love, going on their different ways and living the days of their lives, but they are never apart: As things move in circles, you go left, I go right, but our paths will cross again and we will see each other again.

Note that the last part in the chorus, which is the one I heard, is slightly different.  Before, the chorus ends with “WHEN we will see each other again,” which is arguably more ambiguous as it implies some future point in time. But what I heard was the last part:  “UNTIL we will see each other again,” which to me is more definite and implies this will happen.

If you watch the video and follow along the translation, I hope you will agree that in that moment, and in the context of Heather’s death, this had a profound meaning.  

So just to complete the account:  After this happened I let the radio play.  I did not want to pull the plug, which would have the last resort, but I was just curious to see what would happen. About an hour or so later, I went back up, and the radio had turned itself off, by itself!  It “repaired” itself. And ever since then, it has worked perfectly again.

So you tell me, how is this possible!? A radio "REFUSING TO BE TURNED OFF"?  And then later “repairing” itself?  And only after I listened to a song that carried such deep meaning in that moment?  I mean, a song playing on a radio that has meaning; sure, that by itself may be happenstance… But a radio that cannot be turned off until then?

Come on! I mean, the odds are astronomical.  It just can’t even be explained.  

I believe, everything is connected, and there are no coincidences. 

To me, this was as clear a message as I can get “from the other side.” Only, as explained in other posts, it is not some other side, but just another aspect of a greater reality that we all share.

The message is this:

Our loved ones continue on after death.  And so will we.

And after we ourselves die, our paths will cross again with or loved ones.

Everything moves in circles
You go left. I go right.
At some time the path will cross.
Until we see each other again.

 

Kreise,  Johannes Oerding Circles, by Johannes Oerding
German Original My English Translation
[Strophe 1]
Oft sind Anfang und Ende der gleiche Punkt
Seit der Geburt das selbe Blut, das durch die Adern pumpt
Wir fangen jedes Jahr zur gleichen Zeit an zu frier'n
Wir pusten Ringe in die Luft bis der Rauch verweht
Halten uns fest wenn die Erde Pirouetten schlägt
Und wir dreh'n uns mit wenn die Zeiger rotier'n
[Verse 1]
Often the beginning and end are the same point
Since birth the same blood, that pumps through the veins
We start each year to freeze at the same time
We blow rings into the air until the smoke blows away
Hold on tight when when the earth dances in pirouettes
And we turn alongside when the hands of time rotate

[Refrain]
Ey, wenn sich alles in Kreisen bewegt
Dann gehst du links, dann geh' ich rechts
Und irgendwann kreuzt sich der Weg
Wenn wir uns wiederseh'n

Ey, wenn sich alles in Kreisen bewegt
Dann gehst du links, dann geh' ich rechts
Doch wir beide bleiben nicht steh'n
Bis wir uns wiederseh'n

[Chorus]
Hey, when everything is moving in in circles
Then you go left, then I go right
And at some time the path will cross
When we see each other again

Hey, when everything is moving in in circles
Then you go left, then I go right
And at some time the path will cross
Until we see each other again

[Strophe 2]
Der Zirkel malt jeden Tag auf das leere Blatt
Und der Mond löst die Sonne ab in jeder Nacht
Ich frag' mich wieder mal, was bei dir grad passiert
Poesie an der Wand auf dem Kneipenklo
Halt nicht fest was du liebst, sondern lass es los
Und wenn es wiederkommt, dann gehört es zu dir
[Verse 2]
The compasses draws each day on a blank sheet
And the moon takes over from the sun every night
I just aks myself again, what’s happening to you right now
Lyrics on the wall of some bar’s restroom
Don’t hold on to what you love, but let it go
And when it comes back, then it belongs to you

[Refrain]
Ey, wenn sich alles in Kreisen bewegt
Dann gehst du links, dann geh' ich rechts
Und irgendwann kreuzt sich der Weg
Wenn wir uns wiederseh'n

Ey, wenn sich alles in Kreisen bewegt
Dann gehst du links, dann geh' ich rechts
Doch wir beide bleiben nicht steh'n
Bis wir uns wiederseh'n

[Chorus]
Hey, when everything is moving in in circles
Then you go left, then I go right
And at some time the path will cross
When we see each other again

Hey, when everything is moving in in circles
Then you go left, then I go right
And at some time the path will cross
Until we see each other again

[Bridge]
Egal, wie weit wir uns entfern'n
Auf dem Radar seh' ich nur uns
Egal, wie weit wir auseinander sind
Wir hab'n den gleichen Mittelpunkt
[Bridge to chorus]
No matter how far away we go
On the radar I see only us
No matter how far apart we are
We have that same center

[Refrain]
Ey, wenn sich alles in Kreisen bewegt
Dann gehst du links, dann geh' ich rechts
Und irgendwann kreuzt sich der Weg
Wenn wir uns wiederseh'n

Ey, wenn sich alles in Kreisen bewegt
Dann gehst du links, dann geh' ich rechts
Und irgendwann kreuzt sich der Weg
Wenn wir uns wiederseh'n

Ey, wenn sich alles in Kreisen bewegt
Dann gehst du links, dann geh' ich rechts
Doch wir beide bleiben nicht steh'n
Bis wir uns wiederseh'n

[Chorus]
Hey, when everything is moving in in circles
Then you go left, then I go right
And at some time the path will cross
When we see each other again

Ey, wenn sich alles in Kreisen bewegt
Dann gehst du links, dann geh' ich rechts
Und irgendwann kreuzt sich der Weg
Wenn wir uns wiederseh'n

Hey, when everything is moving in in circles
Then you go left, then I go right
And at some time the path will cross
Until we see each other again

 

Namaste — I bow to you and the Divine in you.
