Blessings, and welcome to Soul Kisses Spiritual Whispers.
We are, indeed, a crowd. When I look in the mirror, my physical eyes, see my physical body. My spiritual eyes, see my angelic entourage of angels, guides, teachers as well as deceased loved ones and friends - I am a crowd. This brings me great comfort. The physical world can be a challenging place. Shifting from logical physical world fear, to trust and faith of the generosity of the Universal Supply Warehouse and the safety and comfort of residing in the palm of God can be challenging at best.
The Soul Kisses website, began as a place to not only find comfort that we are profoundly loved spiritual beings experiencing a human existence, but also to offer support that we are so profoundly loved and are, indeed, a crowd. Since my dad, Big Jim, transitioned in 2005, the site has evolved into one of support that love does live forever. Big Jim didn't fear death, he had already brushed against the veil during angioplasty surgery twelve years before his spirit transitioned home. I know he's fine and he looks great when he's here, but I still grieve for the loss of his physical presence.
Now the website offers yet more support that death is not to be feared, but celebrated as a life loved and lived, and as a life continuing to live in another form. At the same time support is offered to grieve for the loss of the physical presence, for as humans, we must experience grief. We must experience the stages of grief - acknowledge them, embrace them and bless them on their way - releasing the grief emotions and feelings so as not to suppress them in any way.
Honestly it is easier to suppress grief than it is to deal with it. However, this is very unhealthy on many levels.
How long does grief last? In my opinion, it never goes away. It only gets easier. Big Jim often breezes through here, laughing and chatting, yet it is not the same. I still move to pick up the phone to call him, then realize he will never be on the other end of a telephone conversation. Some times I cry. Some times I just acknowledge that he just winked at me.
We are strong spiritual beings, limitless in our potential and unfailing in our power, when we choose to embrace it and accept who we truly are. As we walk through the illusion of the valley of the shadow of death, there is no evil to fear, only love to embrace. When we know this and accept it, life is easier. For there is no room for fear in love. In living from a love base, joy springs forth, eternally generating gratitude of all that is. Living from a love base, makes us a magnet for more love.
Living from a love base, opens our hearts to the crowd in the mirror as seen by the "spiritual eye." They are with us always - in every moment of every day and every night. It is up to us to discern between our "mind chatter" and our angelic entourage. We can all do it if we so choose.
Practice creating your Sacred Space and connecting with your entourage as much as you possibly can. As you look within, your life will shift from the fear of the physical world, to that of safety, peace and serenity with the angelic realm.
May you allow yourself to release the fear and embrace the love.
In love and light,
