There is something magical about preparing for our final transition from this earthly life. From the beginning of time and tradition, death and transition are just as celebrated as life and birth. We have the unique advantage of consciousness and understanding that allows us to experience all that death and dying have to offer us. It may be an uncomfortable subject but when it is handled with love and compassion, grief and mourning can become acceptable parts of our lives through growing, learning, and living.

As we develop deep bonds of love and friendship, we are faced with the reality that one day those loved ones will pass on, leaving us behind to mourn them. And sometimes, those that are passing on are you and I as well. It is important not to turn away from the questions that we have and the answers that we need to know before and during a loved one dies. We need to know they are okay afterwards and that they are with family and friends who have gone on before them. We need consolation that our grief is not in vain and that we have made every resolution possible before they pass on. Mostly, it is important that we all let go of fear and just trust what is happening to us, even if we do not understand it.

Grief can overwhelm you and change your life forever but you have the tools to move forward and heal if you are open to the possibilities that everything happens for a reason, and that life continues on the Other Side. Your strength will come not only from enduring what you are experiencing, but also from the ability to see that healing comes to those whose arms are open to it.

Healing comes when resolution and closure begins. Take this time now to resolve whatever issues you have with dying, or with the person who is dying. It is amazing the power of healing that is extended between you when you allow yourself the opportunity of letting go. Let go of anger, resentment, differences, ego, and the endless arguments that now seem so trivial. To surrender ourselves to compassion and love, we are entering a sacred space in which you and your loved one can share a new beginning and exchange a bond of love that will never be broken.

To resolve issues and bring both of you back to love and acceptance, write a letter to that person or to yourself. Explain why you feel the way that you do and allow yourself to be open. When you are done, seal the letter and keep it with you. Your feelings are now released and the intention of resolution has been sent out into the universe to manifest itself. Guilt and issues of the past will disappear and love will fill its space.

When resolution comes, then another opportunity can present itself; the gift of receiving a special message from the Other Side! Even if the person that is getting ready to pass is not receptive to you physically and they seem unresponsive, always remember that their soulful self is completely alert and will know of everything that is happening. Awareness comes not from consciousness, but subconsciousness.

It is never too late to make a request.

When alone with the person who is dying, ask them for a special validation that they come through to you once they have passed on to let you know that they are okay and still with you. It is a unique way to receive the proof that your loved one has made it through the transition of physical death. Reveal your wishes to them; tell them that you need them to come through to you in a very specific way so that you know for sure they are with you. Do this alone with them so that way you know it is for real. Ask them that they bring you their favorite song on the day of their memorial service, or that you hear their name, or see them in a dream. Ask them whatever you wish as long as it is private and just between the two of you. You will be astounded when you actually have your wish come true. Don’t be afraid to ask and don’t be afraid to receive it. By being open to this form of after death communication we will bring into our lives the knowing that they have moved on from physical life. We’ll no longer need to hang onto their clothes, their home, and their belongings to feel that they are still with us. We’ll no longer feel that those object are our only way of connecting that person to us. We’ll finally have the understanding that life is everlasting and that physical death is merely a moment of transition in our journey of our soulful life.

Even with knowing these things we are still going to experience loss associated with death. That is a very normal stage in the grieving process. And our grief is as individual as the person who is grieving so there really is no right or wrong way to grieve. If you or someone you know is experiencing loss and grief due to death and dying please know that there are also many helpful resources that can assist in the healing process of understanding and moving on. Among them are support groups, counselors, and bereavement specialists who can offer advice and recommendations to those who are searching for answers. As always, be kind, compassionate and loving to help a grieving heart. It will make all the difference.

  1. I have an 82 year old father on hospice in a nursing home, his life expectancy is about a month- it is so difficult to accept at times.

  2. Dear sister Louise,
    My prayers are with you and your family during this challenging time. Please remind yourself, dear sister, that your dad is simply moving on to the next phase of his journey and will never really leave you. My father passed on suddenly a few years ago and at the time I was so grief stricken that I did not realize that he was always, always by my side. You are so blessed to have these precious days with him…to tell him how much you love him and you will definitely meet again. This is not goodbye, it is merely ‘Au revoir’. :)
    Much, much love and blessings, :)

  3. So hard to deal with this. My parents gone some 20 years ago. When I need them, I focus on their presence as it was, and feel it now. The more I do this the stronger the presence feels. I then think how I wish my children to feel when I pass on, and I want them to embrace death as part of life, transforming, exciting, and miraculous. I try to see what I need to become for them, so they see through any mealoncholy over death.
