I was meditating the other day and realized that my loved ones in spirit were calling out to me. It wasn’t that I heard their “physical voices” calling to me, it was more intuitive and subtler. But the message was very clear: please connect.
Having done years of bereavement work, I have seen that it is entirely possible and beneficial to maintain a relationship with our loved ones after they have died. I believe that their souls are nourished and supported in their continuing growth through that connection.
Whether it’s done through prayer, meditation, ceremony, or simply sharing thoughts and feelings with them, this connection is helpful to your growth as well as theirs. I’ve spoken to others who agree with me that we are all being called, now more than ever, to take time in our busy schedules to do this kind of connecting. We can assist with the healing of family or ancestral illnesses, and non-supportive patterns or behaviors through our prayers and meditations with and for our deceased family members. It will ultimately lead to a more peaceful, compassionate and loving world.
You may want to listen to one of my songs, “Reach Out,” as you contemplate your connection with your ancestors (and I’m including your current family in that category–your mother, father, their parents, their siblings, etc.)
