I am still around you, guiding, applauding, supporting you, in all you do. I watch with love through all the significant days that continue in your life, some good and bad, and I will lead you in any way I can. I hear you talk to me! In the car, while you wash dishes, when you study, as you lie in bed alone at night and cry, I am with you, comforting and consoling you. I hear your voice and wish you could hear mine. I feel your pain and wish I could take it away; please know, I am with you. Yes I have crossed over, but not away from you. I am much closer than you know.
I am no longer feeling any pain, nor was my death painful. Although my body may have failed in the end, or my passing was tragic, that is not how I feel now. There is a sense of freedom and lightness that now envelops my new "body." Please don't think of the end, but rather remind yourself of what I was like in life. I am still VERY much alive.
I wish I had prioritized my life differently and been more emotionally demonstrative. Looking on from the other side, I now have a better perspective about what is important. I am sorry I worked so much or didn't show my emotions, because I loved you so much, but I put less important things in front of those who mattered the most. I am sorry I missed important events, or wasn't present when you needed me. Please forgive me for never telling you how proud I am of you and all that you have accomplished.
I was greeted by loved ones in the Spirit world when I crossed over and was never alone during my transition. (This is especially true when I read for parents who have lost children.) I experienced a sort of homecoming with many of the Spirit people who passed before me and they welcomed me lovingly into my new home. (Many Spirit people even mention that they were greeted by their pets.)
I send you messages often, but sometimes your grief gets in the way of noticing these things. Listen to the songs on the radio, look for the pennies on the street, the flickering of lights, birds that catch your attention, vanity plates with special messages, conversations you overhear from strangers; these are just some of the ways I communicate with you.
