Death is frightening for most people. A friend of mine whose father passed away several months ago is having a tough time letting go. She knows that I am always there for her. I am a terrific listener but to be honestly is difficult to know someone is hurting so deeply, and not be able to ease that pain.
In the past several months I have done a lot of deep spiritual work. While embarking on this journey of self discovery I have found that death is not the final stage for those who pass. While it is certainly final for those of us left on earth to grieve. We cry for ourselves, and rightly so. We lose someone we love and on top of that we are left to pick up the pieces and find a way to go on without them.
For those that pass, however, death is not the end, but more of a beginning. It is a transformation from bodily living to soul living. A change in worlds, if you will. They still walk along side of us. They are simply at a vibration we cannot see. When you think of them it is because they are there with you. When you hear their name it’s because they have whispered it in your ear. If we are open and receptive they will give us signs to help us move forward. Ask for those signs and you will get them.
We all grieve in our own way. This can be a difficult process, but the one thing I do know is the amount of time we grieve is not measurable by the amount that we love them. Meaning that just because we make the conscious decision to let go doesn’t mean we stop loving. Letting go displays a great love and is a selfless act by allowing them to be free. If we become stuck in a state of grief we end up hindering their soul’s ability to be free to walk among the angels.
