It was more then three months ago during my weekly radio show Messages From The Other Side that the Big Kahuna asked me how the Philadelphia Phillies were going to do this season. Normally I never make predictions when it comes to sports. The gift I have does not allow me to do things like predict sports outcomes or lottery numbers. If it did then I would be spending a lot of time at the casino. When the Big Kahuna unexpectedly threw that question at me about the Phillies during my show, the answer just flowed right out of my mouth. "They will go all the way this year."
When things just come out of my mouth with no thought I pay very close attention to those words. I told the Kahuina and my listeners that this will be the year for the Phillies. I'm sorry that I can not say the same for the Eagles. This prediction was before the Phillies were even half way through the season. I had no idea where they Phillies even stood at that point because I just do not have the time to pay attention to sports, even though I love the Phillies and grew up going to the games and of course collecting baseball cards.
The last week I received a call from a reporter at the Buck's County Courier Times. I was told that the editor of the newspaper wanted my opinion on the Phillies and of course my prediction on the World Series. I was very hesitant just because I know that they would love to eat me alive if I were wrong. The way it just slipped out of my mouth during my radio show months back was the same way it slipped out to the reporter. "Yes, the Phillies will take it all." was my response to the reporter. It just came out and I stick with what comes to me from spirit. I made the time to watch the World Series this year and really enjoyed the games. I enjoyed it even more beings the Phillies indeed toke it all.
A few years ago during a group gallery reading in Bordentown an older gentlemen asked me a question. He said to me "Where do you see my grandsons carrier going?" Instantly I saw baseball and told him what I saw and then said I see him playing for the Phillies. The gentle got such a big smile on his face and responded with "My grandson is trying out for the Philles this spring". I never got his grandsons name but heard that he now plays pro ball, I think for the Phillies. I just thought about that while I was writing this blog. I thought that was pretty cool and wanted to share that with you.
So congratulations to the Phillies. I knew you would not let me down. You can read the article from last weeks paper by clicking HERE. I have to go through my radio archives to find the exact date that I made this prediction. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and if you are celebrating the Phillies win over the next few days, please, do not drink and drive. Find a designated driver or do not drive at all. You could be saving your life and the life of someone you do not even know. Be safe and be well.
