Death… it is the one journey we will ALL walk. 7.2 billion people on this planet will experience death, whether it’s the death of a loved one, a friend, a pet, or ultimately their own. It is an absolute!
As a Psychic Medium I am surrounded by death on a daily basis, whether it is through clients that come to see me for help to connect with their deceased loved ones, through the volunteer work I do with Find Me (a non-profit group that works with police and search and rescue teams to solve missing person’s cases and bring closure to families that have felt tragic, extreme loss) or in my own personal life through close family and friends that have died in heartbreaking ways.
In the beginning of my career, I wanted no part of mediumship. The connection was difficult and the feelings were sad. I felt too sensitive to do this kind of psychic work. I struggled with my human emotions, and many times I chose to ignore the messages I was getting. It was depressing and painful to share them with the person I was receiving them for, and I myself would oftentimes get physically sick during the process. I literally couldn’t stomach some of the experiences. Even my earliest memories and lessons around death had taught me that fear, emptiness, grief and struggle were what was to be expected when a physical life ended.
Despite those painful experiences, I also felt PULLED to do mediumship work. I had an innate knowing that I was MEANT to do this work and was continually guided to it. So although I didn’t like it in many ways, I KNEW I was being called to step into it. I KNEW that I HAD to be a voice for those that had transitioned, and help those left behind with their pain and grief.
What I didn’t know in those beginning years was how profoundly my life would CHANGE. I had no way of knowing that I would experience a comforting sense of Peace that could be an anchor in the most difficult of losses. I had not fully recognized the opportunities I would have to continue to build my communication skills with those in the Spirit World. My life changed…in BIG ways!
I learned to focus on our loved one’s PRESENCE… instead of their ABSENCE.
Love can heal our pain, perceptions and experiences of death. LOVE can also change how we see the actual death process.
