As a Mother I can barely imagine the torture of losing a child. And it is perhaps not surprising that the shocking violence in Connecticut has touched the hearts of so many, initiating an outpouring of grief on a global scale. The impact of this shocking massacre has stirred everyone, in Oneness. We’ve seen children from as far away as Pakistan honoring the loss, crosses lining a beach in Brazil, and candles lit in countries around the world, all creating a sense of Union.
Grieving is, indeed, what needs to happen now. The pain must be acknowledged and felt. There is no other way.
Following an incident filled with such horror and disbelief, we search for healing and for answers. That healing can only be found through the practice of faith. A faith that aligns us with our higher truth; a faith that assures us of our higher purpose. We believe “time heals,” but time may not be enough to assuage such enormous grief. Yet we can always trust in faith to sooth the soul.
The bereaved have so many questions. Where are they? How are they? Will I ever see my child again? How do I know that she is fine? And how can I trust in this faith — I don’t have any proof!
If there is ever a time to believe, it is now. We must trust in the knowledge that our spirits are infinite. This trust is not reserved exclusively for those who follow organized religion. Shaman, medicine men, Seers, Avatars, Spiritual Teachers and Masters can’t all be wrong, can they? We have heard over and over again from those who have left their bodies, including myself. It is stunning how each of them describe an almost identical experience; that of the awe-inspiring light, warmth and love that awaits us on the other side. If you need proof you can find it. There are documentaries, books and numerous accounts of near-death experiences, and each one shares striking similarities.
When you choose faith and choose to believe that you remain connected to your Loved one, your heart stays open. You stay connected through the love in your heart. You can pray, talk and cry with them, trusting that they are not only listening but also loving you in return, whilst they remain in a place of warmth, love, light and happiness. You may even be able to feel them, see them in your dreams and sometimes even hear them. There is no pain on the other side, only love.
Without faith your heart may become so overwhelmed by loss and suffering, that it closes up. This “closing up” must be avoided for your own sake, for the sake of your loved one and for the sake of all of Humanity. When your heart closes up you will lose connection with your loved one, and with life itself. Closing off the heart is like giving up on life.
Faith is free of religion, faith is greater than humanity, faith is Love.
Faith is trusting that the souls passed are stirring the hearts of Human Beings all around the world. The loss is being felt in the hearts of all, uniting us all through love. This is clear to see. Faith is knowing that these souls live on through a union of hearts and faith, and choosing to believe that they continue to exist in another dimension. Faith is trusting that their lives were not wasted, but, to the contrary, that their lives were given to a higher purpose more momentous and great than we can ever perceive.
I believe that purpose is for us to wake up and raise our awareness as a community. This awareness demands we pay attention to those who are commonly labeled “different,” “troubled,” “edgy” or “borderline.” We must share responsibility for these beings, if the community itself is ever to evolve and thrive. Awareness demands we reach out, without judgment, without fear, willing to offer a helping hand, willing to “get involved,” willing to bridge the separation, before separation and disconnectedness once again take over and lash out.
Pray that we may all unite through love, and that we may all feel and heal each other’s pain, as One.
Pray that all souls be in peace and rest in the arms of the Angels, of God, and in the warmth of our heartfelt support.
God bless all.
