A channeling session led Barbara to tell a heavy-hearted 20-year old woman that Katherine was coming through and saying "it wasn't your fault". As she spoke, Barbara's heart pounded and felt as though it would leap from her chest;she felt as if she were being smothered. The woman started to cry. Apparently when she was a small child, her younger sister Katherine crawled over to a washbasin, stuck her head into the inches of water, held it and drowned. Through the despair, her parents hysterically screamed at her, "How could you let your sister drown?" She had always carried this guilt with her thinking it was her fault. She was crying not because of sadness, but because Barbara had made contact for her and relieved her of a terrible burden she'd carried for far too long.
