Rory Gray

In our lifetime it is wonderful how we meet the people that we need to meet who will help us to grow and become the real human beings that we are from the inside out.

Rory was one of my greatest teachers.  He came into my life because he believed that he needed my help, however, in my eyes he came into this world to help me.

Rory had been in a car accident 10 years prior to me meeting him and this accident left him totally paralyzed from the neck down.  I have always known how difficult it was to live life fully paralyzed, but never stopped to really understand what it would be like to not be able to look after any of my own physical needs, to not be able to feel or move my limbs, physically play with my children, feed myself, and interact physically and emotionally with other people.   Although he was paralyzed, he lived his life in constant physical pain and had to rely on medication to stabilize the pain that never went away.  Jokingly he stated that he was one of the few lucky quadraplegics that could still feel pain “constantly”.  In a very short period of time, Rory taught me much about how to compensate in life for the inability to do these things and how to live in pain with a smile on your face.

I was called into his life to assist him to sort through some depression and help him to recognize who he is and what he wants in life.

He in return taught me that we all have limitations and that we sure need to live our lives fully no matter how fragile or handicapped we are mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually.  No matter how tough his life was for him, he reached out and touched anyone who came in contact with him, not with his hands, but with his heart.  He taught me what unconditional caring was all about when the last contact on earth that I had with him was through his computer, which he loved, and I was to meet him for an appointment!  He let me know that he had contracted a very bad case of influenza that was running rampant through the nursing home he was in and in his words he stated “That if he were in my shoes, he wouldn’t come around there for a million dollars”!  Rory and I had shared some of our limitations with one another, and one of my greatest limitations physically, is through my health difficulties living my life with a jeopardized immune system.  Thank you Rory for taking care of me so selflessly.

Rory spoke openly of his life, those who he loved and those who loved him, life, death, goals, frustrations and living in a world of challenge, not only for him, but for all he encountered on his journey through life!  He was excited about others accomplishments and downplayed his own accomplishments out of caring, compassion and understanding of other people.

Rory knew that he was ready to leave this earth but was certainly making the best of it while he was here.  In the last message that I received from him he stated that he was still sick, on oxygen, didn’t want to go to the hospital, and that he needed my help!

Life at times throws us curve balls!   I had understood that his need for help was to be here on earth plane, however, because many that I know  are psychics and healers who are able to help others to find their way when they leave this wonderful earth of ours, I was able to help Rory to return to the other side, so that he may return with wings and help all of us here to complete our lives with the care, compassion and love that he displayed with others in his life.

Fly freely now Rory, you have your wings, limbs and special gifts to assist us all here on earth plane.

Thank you for being all that you are and have been Mentally, Physically, Emotionally and Spiritually, so that we can all become more balanced in our lives!

“I” thank you for your messages to me!

Peace, love, light and blessings to you my friend as you journey forward on this day of your funeral here on earth plane!
