Death is almost always a subject people don’t really want to talk about. It’s interesting because we’re all going to leave this earth plane sooner or later and go to the next realm of existence, a new beginning. I realized just the other day that I have become somewhat desensitized to the death. It’s not that I don’t care. On the contrary, I do so very much. But friends may not get it. Almost every day I come in contact with people who are looking to connect with deceased loved ones. It is a blessing that I am able to assist.
Looking back, when my father died in 2006, it was unbearable. I made myself sick over it for a better part of a year. At that point, I had been taking intuition development classes for a couple of years. I wasn’t giving readings on a professional level. I healed myself from that event. In 2018, my master teacher, friend, business partner and my daughter’s godmother left this plane after a 10 year fight with cancer. Yes, it hurt when she left, but I got to spend so much time with her when she was preparing to leave this plane. I laid next to her in bed and she told me that she had a dream, a vision, not long ago that she was standing at the gates, which were illumined. Bright light was everywhere. She said she felt like she wasn’t good enough to go through those gates. I thought about that and the next day I laid on her bed and said, ‘You have affected so many people on this plane as a nurse, as a performer on stage with more than 70 leads in musicals, as a healer to those who came to you as a massage therapist and as a teacher of intuition development to hundreds. You have left your mark. You made a difference. You are good enough.’ She said in voice that was barely audible, ‘Your words.’ When her husband and I left the room, I cried into his arms. I knew I was not to see her again on this earth plane.
Yes, I have finally allowed myself to see my father in Spirit. It took many years before I could do that. My friend, though, she’s around me all the time. I am thankful that I have this gift to help other people. People may perceive my view of death as insensitive. It is not. I would love to physically hug my dad or my friend again. Wouldn’t we all?
If you have a fear of death, make a decision to what your belief system is and go from there. The bottom line is we’re all here for a reason. I do believe it is to help others – the Golden Rule. Blessings of love and healing!
