When A Loved One Dies

When A Loved One Dies

If you have just experienced the loss or death of a loved one, may you find comfort and understanding within this article.

Death is a transition. It is the final stage of human life, but not spiritual life. Death has been given the stigma of something negative, something that spells the end for all life, which is not true.

When the spirit or soul leaves the body, it moves forward to the next dimension that just happens to be different than the one we inhabit. The next dimension (and subsequent higher dimensions) does not require a physical vessel like life on Earth. In these other dimensions, the soul is free to travel without a hindrance. some may experience this phenomenon while dreaming or astral traveling (out of body experience) to the point where the soul is outside of your physical body.

A big problem we make here on this planet is that we confuse the physical body as the real person or soul instead of knowing that the flesh body is only a vessel that contains the soul for its duration on this realm in a particular lifetime (as there are subsequent lifetimes). Living and dying are nothing new to us. We have died and reincarnated numerous times.

You may have heard that “we are spiritual beings experiencing a physical existence”, and this is very true. Regardless of how you may define death or transition, it is the emotional tie to the physical manifestation of the soul that humans find most difficult to process.

We get caught up on the physical shell and miss the fact of the soul, so when the present life’s body ceases to exist, we become saddened and only so due to the fact that we became attached to the body rather than the soul.

The soul (the real person or entity) never dies nor can it. It simply changes outfits or bodies. It’s like having a closet full of outfits and considering each day as a lifetime. The soul is merely changing outfits (body) for each new day (lifetime).

It is very sad and unfortunate that religion does not deal in or with metaphysics or the occult interpretation of existence. The few exceptions are Gnostic Christianity, Jewish Kabbalahism, and Islamic Sufism.

What is Grief?

Grief is an emotional reaction to loss. People can experience grief at the loss of a pet, a person (living or dead), a lifestyle (such as divorce), or anything else. It is most commonly, however, associated with the death of a loved one, and the feelings can be overwhelming. At some death transitions or funerals, survivors may faint or collapse. Some try to get inside the coffin or casket with the deceased. People who talk and act like this are not grounded in life or do not accept life’s natural processes.

Grieving for a deceased loved one, especially a parent, spouse, or child, is understandable, but it’s probably the last thing the deceased wanted you to endure. They are just fine on the other side, but that can be hard to grasp immediately. They are receiving everything they need, depending on their specific circumstances, predicated upon their most recent Earth incarnation experience.

No one who transitions is ever alone. Ever! The person has all the assistance they need on the other side. Reference the following:

“As death approaches, relatives or friends who have gone on before gather around the dying person to assist in the imminent transition from the physical to the nonphysical state. Frequently the dying can see them already, for at the time of imminent death the bonds between conscious and unconscious are very loose. Dr. Karlis Osis of the American Society of Physical Research did some valuable studies on bedside observations of the dying in various hospitals. In these reports, mention is made frequently of the alleged presence in the hospital room of a long-dead relative or friend whom only the dying person can see or hear. In the past, such phenomena have been brushed aside as “hallucinations of the dying”, implying that all patients in their terminal stage are mentally incompetent and therefore their testimony is not to be taken at face value.” “Life Beyond.” Holzer, Hans., p. 136-137

Letting Go

You are here for your soul’s purpose and for a higher spiritual reason and lesson. Release the deceased person! Let them go on for their soul’s purpose.

Hold the warm and loving memories of the person in your heart and go on about your life’s business, never losing sight of that love.

In conclusion, death is not the end of life. Please reference the following:

“When we are alive, we define ourselves by what we can see, hear, or touch. We are tissue, bone, and matter. When people die and we can no longer connect with them through our senses, we cannot help but to think that they no longer exist. This is not true. As Albert Einstein proved decades ago, everything is made of energy. Energy cannot be destroyed; it can only change form. You cannot ‘not’ exist, you can only transform. Death cannot end your life, it can only enhance who and what you are.” – Cyndi Dale
