By Sue Frederick, author of Bridges to Heaven: True Stories of Loved Ones on the Other Side
If someone you love has died and you’re standing on the precipice of shattering loss, you’re being blessed at this moment.
Your loved one, now on the other side, is trying to help you remember who you really are and why you stand here on earth. It only takes a moment of silence to hear this divine guidance.
Yes you’ll have to battle the ego mind telling you that your life is now empty, that you’re paralyzed with grief, and you’ll never feel love again. Listen to that song of woe that the ego mind plays for you. How does it feel in your body?
Does it suck your life away? Drain you? Keep you in bed? Take away your appetite? Does it sit on top of you like lead crushing your soul? That is the job of the ego self, to bury us in unconsciousness.
Yet at this very moment, your divine self is also speaking. It speaks with love and fearlessness. The very sound of its words stir energy inside of you, lift weight from your shoulders, fill you with breath and light, with inspiration.
Your higher self says: This is the greatest moment of your lifetime. All the lessons you came to learn live in this moment. See the beauty of every step and every soul agreement that has brought you here. See the perfection in all of it. Choose the light. Choose the love. And the rest will unfold. You are not alone. Divinity guides your every step…
Everything changes for the better the moment you ask to hear your soul’s wisdom. It’s a simple request, an act of surrender to the lesson: “Please show me my soul’s lesson and help me move through this with love and courage.”
That simple request calls guidance to your side, fills the room with light, opens your heart, quiets your mind, shows you another perspective on your pain; it illuminates the choices you didn’t know you had.
Your highest self created this moment of pain to allow you to step up to your wisdom, to awaken into love, and to embrace your spiritual perspective. YOU are a divine being who created this painful moment to shake lose your old patterns of negativity; to provide an opportunity to embrace your soul’s perspective.
You came here to merge your divine self with your physical self and create a new level of consciousness for yourself and others.
You intended to be grand and fearless, bold and awake, infused with wisdom, loving and aware. Your divine lens, your spiritual self, illuminates this path and shows you your next step.
Your ego self says it isn’t possible.
You get to choose. It’s a simple request. And it changes everything…
Sue Frederick will be teaching a one-day workshop entitled Healing Our Grief: Talking to Loved Ones on the Other Side on Sunday, October 5th, 10am-5:30pm.
