How can we reconcile the death of a loved one and trust that all is well?
Question posed to Spirit by one of my students after a bereavement: How can we reconcile the death of a loved one and trust that all is well? The second paragraph references the person who passed as 'her', but the guidance is relevant for us all.
Death will come to all at some point. Sometimes it is welcomed, sometimes it is feared. It will come nevertheless. What is death? The loss of physicality. The body dies and decays, and the spirit moves on. Humans mourn the loss of loved ones and less familiar humans. Sadness is a part of life. Loss is part of life. There is gain, and therefore loss is the balance. Balance is the key. You live, therefore, you will also die. But only the physical, substantial flesh dies and withers. The soul lives on and moves into a different realm. Do not mourn the soul, it is reunited with its true state. It does not mourn the loss of its physical framework. This was a vehicle for adventures and learning. Everything progresses, moves on; otherwise, stagnation would occur, and life would petrify.
Do not mourn the loss of your loved one. Celebrate her life and way in which she touched your life. No matter how briefly or intensely her impact, you connected. It is now time to release and disconnect. Memories can be held but gently. Do not suffocate them. Release your tears of both sorrow and of joy. Your meeting was important, and you both learned and gained from it. Time moves on, and goodbyes are in order. Be grateful. Remember with gentleness. Sing of her memory and deeds but do not dwell in the past, it is gone and is behind you. Look forward with gratitude in your heart as well as tears in your eyes. Life is for living and moving forward. The past is gone like a breath of air, fleeting, non-graspable. Do not hold it too tightly, release and let it breathe. Shine a light on it and give it space. Surround it with love and smile.
