I weep for those who do not know and have not experienced the transition. I was with my Dad when he passed, I kissed his forehead still warm from the retreating energy of his spirit. But the very instant that his spirit fled, I felt it. You know, energy cannot be created or destroyed and all that.
For a long time before that moment I doubted and wondered. But when I was blessed to experience it, a single tear slid down his cheek - amazing because he had been in a coma at home for 2 weeks and had had no fluids for that entire time. He brought me home when he died. That was 4 years ago on the 28th of this month.
That's an inspiring story Lakshy and one that I imagine will always remain life changing for you. Thanks for sharing it.
My brother's death shifted my own consciousness profoundly. I always did believe in the eternal nature of life, but to be honest, had never tested it. Almost 5 years ago, he died unexpectedly in his sleep. We were only 11 months apart and truly the best of friends. As I said goodbye to his lifeless body after they had taken him to the hospital, he began speaking to me. I immediately stopped crying as his elation and joy were unmistakable. I could see him in my mind's eye doing a crazy little dance (something he often did while alive and he kept telling me that he could not explain to me in terms my human mind could understand, just how incredible his experience of leaving his body had been, but he wanted me to know, he was in pure bliss! He kept saying, "just wait til you get to do it, you'll see then what I mean."
Following that, I began receiving stunning signs from him, many of a physical nature. He died on the morning of Remembrance Day. To this day, I continue to find remembrance day poppies in the craziest of places...usually right on the heels of thinking about my brother. I also get birds behaving in unusual ways......sometimes swooping by and touching me or appearing out of nowhere as soon as a thought of him pops up. & lots of other stuff that is profoundly sysnchronisitic in nature.
Even those who profess to have no belief in an afterlife find these occurrences amazing and difficult to explain away.
Anyway, the signs were so amazing that I decided to write a book about it all. Throughout the process my brother was with me and continued to promise me that I'd find a publisher to publish it. True to his word, in Feb. of this year, O Books offered me a contract to publish.
This experience has catapulted me into a whole new way of being and of looking at life. Things no longer stress me out and my overall level of joy has absolutely exploded....it's been really wonderful to truly experience first hand the fact that life is eternal and there is no such thing as death.
