The death of a loved one is one of life's most difficult experiences, but the good news is that we do not really die. Our departed loved ones are still with us, just in a different form. After death, they are usually very eager to let us know that they are okay and that they still want to be part of our lives. There are multiple signs that let us know that our loved one is near and trying to comfort us or communicate with us. We have learned from the work of Dr. Michael Newton and others that we are Souls who join with a human body to live life on earth to grow spiritually. Our real home is in the Spirit World. We carefully plan our lives on earth. However, we do not remember this and ...

We live in a society that is uncomfortable with discomfort. Technology and progress are geared towards efficiency. The focus is on making our lives faster and easier, making our consumption greater, eradicating any waiting. When it comes to grief, however, there are no shortcuts.

Death stands above me, whispering low,I know not what into my ear;Of his strange language all I knowIs, there is not a word of fear. (Walter Savage Landor) The wheel of the year turns on its perpetual, ceaseless axis, taking us from one season to another. The golden colours of autumn give way to the impending grey of winter, and as the last leaf falls from the tree of life, we descend into darkness and decay. The blessed Earth turns her northern face from the sun and the breath of death sighs from the edge of forever. Calan Gaeaf, the feast that heralds the Calends of Winter—Samhain—reminds us of the frailty of life, the inevitability of death and its necessity. Eerie eyes ...

by Awyn Dawn
Mental health is too often thought of as a side note or a punchline. Sometimes it is not thought of at all, ignored in an effort to will away any topic deemed too uncomfortable to discuss. As magical...
