The day we fear the most...




'The day which we fear
as our last is
but the birthday of eternity'

Rumi

Medium Gillian Holland's take on eternal life 
and contact from the 'other side'.


Death is an ending as well as a bright new beginning.  As human beings, we are all programmed for change, and yet at the same time need to feel safe and secure. I think change is a much better word than death. The 'd' word sounds so final. Here today and gone tomorrow, as if we jump off a cliff into oblivion. Death just isn't like that, it's a process: a journey through which we embrace change, moving from one state into another. We can still communicate with each other, but not necessarily in the old tried and tested ways.

We only have to watch the world as it passes by our window.  It never stops completely..  People passing by; shopping, driving, nattering, living out their lives....and then there are the seasons.  Life is never static.  Things shift and change.They alter position.  Attitudes change, too. So do we. So do our loved ones as they make their transition into the Higher Life. But it doesn't mean they can't or won't try to reach out to us.

Of course the loss of a loved one is painful and heart breaking.  It takes a lot of coming to terms with. However, when we embrace death as change, we can stay open to the whispers from our loved ones calling out to us from the other side of life and who have just swapped one overcoat for another.

They call out to us in a number of different ways.  They call on the breeze, and through the happy, loving memories caste into our minds from nowhere, and very often in our deepest darkest moments. Their calling cards can be seen in the coincidences that aren't coincidences at all. They are felt as the tug at our heart strings or in our bellies, or as a sharp intake of breath when the world drops into a silence, which really isn't a silence, but a heart to heart communion from the rainbow bridge.

Our loved ones live on. We just need to be open enough to hear them. 

Allow your heart to stay open
to the magic that is eternity.
Nothing is ever lost
It just changes form
