Death is an Illusion

Mar 17, 2017 | JVP's Blog

“Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” ― Deepak Chopra

No matter how connected you are to Spirit and regardless of what you believe about the afterlife, when someone you love dies it’s difficult to be the one left behind. A few days ago, a dear friend of the family passed and I drove up the coast to visit his widow. We sat and shared beautiful memories, and both of us felt tremendous sadness at the passing of this good man. Even though I could still feel a strong connection to his Spirit (in fact, I sensed him sitting right next to me), the human part of me missed his physical presence. Yes, even mediums mourn when someone they love dies!

I often say that we are all souls having a human experience here on earth – and not the other way around. However, while we exist in human form, sharing love with friends and family is what makes time here worthwhile. It’s normal to want our loved ones to continue to be by our sides in the physical sense, and to miss them when they are gone.

The Healing Connection.

As a spiritual medium, I serve as a link between the living and those who have passed over. When someone close to you dies, allow yourself time to grieve. It’s normal to struggle with sadness, guilt and unanswered questions. The process of mediumship can help the living and the dead find comfort and closure through the spiritual connection, so that eventually both can heal.

The art of mediumship helps heal the living, not only by sharing messages from the deceased, but by providing evidence that death, as most of us view it, is an illusion.
Small, personal details provide comfort and reassurance to those left behind that their loved one is safe, happy and that their presence will be felt long after the reading is over.

The Illusion of Separateness

While our time here on earth is as small as a grain of sand in the beach of our soul’s existence, there is something that endures across all boundaries. We are all part of a greater whole. When a loved one dies, their thoughts, deeds – their very essence – lives on through the people whose lives they have touched. When a beloved parent passes, they are not gone. They live on in their children’s hearts, memories and their very DNA.

Growing past grief.

If you’ve lost a loved one, allow yourself time to grieve. As you go move through the process, there will be good days and bad. These insights have been sent from Spirit to me, to help assist you in growing past grief.

Remind yourself of these facts:

• Your loved ones will be waiting for you when you pass over, and they will not reincarnate without you.
• You signed up for these experiences as part of your Soul Blueprint.

• Your dearly departed is happy, and they are no longer in any pain.

• Your loved in the spirit world is always with you, and they want you to be happy.

• If death and separateness is an illusion, then you are still one at a soul-level.

• The love and laughter that you shared in life will live on forever.

• Friends and relatives in heaven are just an arms length away.

At the James Van Praagh School of Mystical Arts, I offer courses to help you deal with grief, and deepen your connection to the Spirit Realm. No matter where you are in the grieving process, there is something HERE that will help to process, heal and grow.
