Actually I think you just met your daughters playmate when she was holding her arms up to the trees in the woods as if she wanted to be picked up. What you described is most likely a little girl ghost that I would imagine is buried close by your house and I would also imagine that others are buried there as well and visit you also from what you have previously described happening in and around your house and they may have died tragically and not moved on.
And I definitely believe in reincarnation. Think of it this way, God has a trillion things for you to learn in this universe so how can anyone ever expect to learn all of that in just one lifetime? However, I don' think the spirit in your meditation was you, I think it was a real spirit manifestation that you allowed to come through because you were in a meditative state of mind.
Yes, I do remember making that comment to you. And ,wow, what an incredible place to live. Acknowledge them whenever you can and assure them that no one has forgotten their pain and strife and that it is OK for them to move on. You could have your own little bonfire ceremony to help set them free. And for you, what a story you could tell for them if you do find some more information about the area and what may have happened their?
Hmmm, she sounds more like an earthbound spirit. Did you protect yourself before starting you meditation? And were you specific on who could or could not speak to you? If the answer is yes, then maybe there was a different reason she came to you, if the answer is no, maybe try placing a protective bubble around you next time and then say something outloud like "only my spirit guides...or higher realm beings are allowed to communicate with me at this time." I know that sometimes if the protection isn't in place or the intentions aren't set or clear, other entities can come through.
My experieince with the higher realm such as spirit guides, human spirits crossed over, God, Angels, ect, typically have a very nice peaceful and light energy around them. Not saying that she wasn't one, because everyone is different and perceives higher energy differently,but from what I understand, typically the higher realm entities are not really bound to the things of this earth and when they choose someone to watch over, it is for more our benefit and guiding us on higher things. The girl sounds like she is still bound to more earthly things, like her grave. A good way to tell is really feeling the energy. You said it wasn't good nor bad, so maybe you can connect with her again and read deeper into her. Since you are Empathic, I would notice more of her emotions and use that as your connection point. Are you feeling a sadness, a void, apathy, fear, ect? And then keep asking question, why do you feel this? What are you afraid of, if you feel feel. Are you lost? Who are you looking for,ect. Chances are, if she is not crossed over, she picked up on your light and may be looking for a way to cross over.
Anyway's just some thoughts and impressions I picked up, hopefully something in here is helpful. Many Blessings to you!
