She first appeared to me in a vision on the night of Samhain many years ago. Who I would come to know as Gertrude. Wearing mostly black with a Victorian up-do she is still and illuminated in a vast and deep dark. Tucked in her bible she reveals to me her “secret pages,” her channelings. In her lifetime she was afraid of what it meant. She informs me that it’s safe for me to practice and receive these messages openly. I keep her in a cloud with the others. They normally appear in five and sometimes six. Not all of them are in what we would consider “human” form. They are my waking dreamscape. The walking temple where all becomes believable.
