Grieving and Preaching: a Bad Mix

Allowing space for others to integrate

It’s inevitable that someone you know will die. And it’s also inevitable that you will speak to grieving friends or family of the deceased; who try to make sense of death.

Lightworker, our special gift is that of insight as to how the Universe works.  Although we don’t have every answer, we do have a clearer path to Universal Wisdom to access answers when required. That means that we have a stronger grasp on how things work “out there” than those who haven’t yet ventured within to question life.

It’s likely that those still asleep will come to you, for answers, after the loss of a loved one.

Please consider this:

What grieving people want just after a death, is comfort. That’s why Lightworkers are sought out after devastating occurrences such as a death.

Your higher frequency provides a blanket of comfort to those around us, even if they don’t know why.

In 2012, I lost my daughter Isabella.

This was the closest I’d been to the “permanency” of death in this lifetime. Someone who would have lived with me, and been a part of my everyday life experience.

After her death, I experienced an inpouring of love, support and companionship from people near and far.

I was already awake by that time; but something so devastating as the loss of a child still sends you into a tailspin when caught off guard.  Even though I consciously understood that death isn’t permanent—but rather just a change in perspective—I didn’t want my awake friends reminding me of it.

I just wanted someone there, with me.  And I didn’t need words at all.

Those experiencing the rawness of a recent death do not want your spiritual explanations or reasoning.

Just be there.  Put yourself in their shoes, and wrap your blanket of comfort around them.  Let crying happen on both sides, if it arises.  And honor the energy by keeping a distance from the mourner unless they specifically ask to be touched.  Your gift of compassion will never wear away.  You are helping a soul to grow in the gentlest of ways.

Often, such tragic loss is the catalyst for awakening.

There may come a time when asked for more information, and that’s fine, after some calmness and acceptance have settled in. Use your gut in times like this to determine their reason for asking.

You’ll know, when you are asked for more perspective on the death process, with such questions as “where do souls go?”

Then you can provide resources from the standpoint of humility and compassion, rather than with undertones of subconscious egotism.

I’ve included resources below for those who would like another perspective on the death process.

Home with God in a Life that Never Ends

by Neale Donald Walsch.  Explains the process of death from an extra-dimensional perspective.  What the soul experiences, the process of death, and the meaning of time.


My first book, The Home with God Guidebook, was written in collaboration with Neale Donald Walsh to accompany Neale’s book as an optional resource.  This handbook assists those in private grief programs to process their feelings after the loss of a loved one.
