In the last fifteen months I have lost my Mum, my Uncle, my paternal Granddad and my maternal Nana.

If anyone had told me they would all go in such close succession I would have wondered how I could survive the loss and the grief.

But I have survived remarkably well. And I have not been overcome with extreme grief. I have not stopped functioning. Sometimes I ask myself how and why?

When Mum died I did a lot of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) work on myself, and a found that, very quickly the grief subsided. Don’t get me wrong, I still miss her, I still get a little teary at times when I want to hear her or have something to share with her, but it only last a couple of minutes before I just feel happy. Happy to have known her, happy to have been loved by her, happy to have memories of her.

I also have learnt a lot over the past two years about the Soul and its connection to life, and to life after death. This too has helped enormously and brought understanding of who we really are and what we are all here to do. I have deepened my connection to my own Soul and understand things on a very different level now. It helps.

I do get visits in my dreams and visions from them, although as time passes by they get less, as they become more spirit again and less of the person they were. But that too is good and fine.

I don’t know why I am prompted to share this with you. I don’t know why I have been able to get through these deaths of people close to me without being overwrought. I don’t have answers really, just an understanding of life and death that makes it easier.

And I don’t fear death. I understand it is part of the process of life. Nothing more.

  1. I needed to read this today and I thank you for sharing. Mom just had her second stroke, she is 83 and we don’t know what is coming so it was good to read your words. Many thanks:)
