Poem – Death: A beginning

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says, “There she is gone.” Gone where?” Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side, and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says, “There, she is gone!” there are other eyes watching her coming, and there are other voices ready to take up the glad shout, “Here she comes!” And that is dying.

The Whisper of Your Name

There are days when things are hard,
that’s the day you speak to my heart.
There are days when i need a boost,
that’s the day you give my heart a push.
There are days the tears keep gushing,
that’s the day you will say hush please don’t cry hush.
There are many days, and that many days since you left,
That everyday you try to put a smile on my face.
There are many days, and that many days since you came to me,
That everyday you gave me all your physical strength to me.
There are many days, we speak joyfully, in a language where no one speaks
and that everyday we meet, i know my heart is in a joyous freak.
There are many days, we meet. Where no one have ever been,
and that everyday you tell me how  you have been.
There are many days, everything seems real,
and that everyday I know everything  IS REAL.
So that everyday passed, I know you are safe and happy,
and that everyday, my heart is happy.
I know it’s just a whisper of your name, and we will meet at that special realm.

-Take care dearest Prashanth and I know you are safe.

Shirley Scott experience

Last week, I wrote on After Earthly Life Communication (After Death Communication). As I have said, periodically I will be posting some of the experiences encountered by individuals. However, I will include only those  which are from reliable sources. The story below is the first one,  narrated by Shirley Scott.

On February 9, 1994, Hal’s birthday (the third since his death)) I had a very difficult day. I had scheduled a number of things for the day so I would be very busy, but I felt very depressed all day. After dinner alone,  finished up my paper work from my job. I still felt depressed and also agitated. Following my usual pattern, I called a friend just to chat for  awhile to distract myself, but she was not home. I decided to write out my feelings in my journal. A minute or so after sitting down to do this, I heard “beep…..beep….. beep ….. beep.”  I had to stop and think what the sound was and finally realized it sounded like the alarm clock in my bedroom. I went back to the bedroom and looked at my radio alarm that was not making ‘a sound. The beeps came from Hal’s travel alarm clock on his night stand on the other side of the bed. I walked around the bed and saw the time was 9:02 P.M. The alarm switch was in the OFF position, but the beeps continued. My first thought was (and I said it out loud),  “Well, Honey, I guess you know  awful  I’m feeling and came to let me know it will be okay!” Then I lifted up the clock (which I had not touched since I had dusted the area weeks before), turned the switch to “ON,” and it stopped beeping. I turned the switch back to “OFF”- no more beeping. At that point, I   burst into tears, a much needed release for the pent-up feelings of the day. A bit later, I was thinking more rationally and started to question the event, beginning to doubt it as a “sign.” But then I remembered the time, 9:02; 9 is his birthday and 02 is the month of February – it had to be Hal!   It made me feel good he could still try to comfort me, just as he had many times over the years we were together.

After Earthly Life Communication

What is After Death Communication (ADC)? It is a way of showing a connection continues to exist between our loved ones on the other side and those in the earth. The communication can take place through a medium,  in a form of sign, message through a vivid dream or even apparition.

Generally, in many books these kinds of communication are referred as ‘After Death Communication’.  Some others refer them as ‘After Life Communication’.  But from what we understand now is that we do not ‘die’. We just change our form or simply are back to our original form that is the spiritual form. Unfortunately, in real term ‘Death’ is referred as our end of life. Thus to make it more practical and acceptable I will avoid using the word ‘Death’ where possible, in this blog. The word ‘Death’ might make some people uncomfortable, if not most and that make them to avoid discussing on it, although every one of us know that death is imminent and  the present seven billion  people on earth will gradually leave this the earth in about 100 years. Of course at the same time we are told we  might come back to the earth again, someday. If at all this can be proved the word ‘death’ might even be replaced or maybe ‘dropped’ eventually.  ‘Death’ may not exist but ‘WE’ exist.

As such instead of saying After Death Communication I am going to phrase it as ‘After Earthly Life Communication’ or ‘Communication from Spiritual Life or Realm’, which sounds more appropriate. But since there are some books I read refers to ‘After Death Communication’ we will continue using the phrase interchangeably with ‘After Earthly Life Communication’. Anyway, since the communication comes from the same place, after earthly life, coining it under any phrase should not be a matter of concern as long as we understand what it means.

Do you believe in After Death Communication (ADC) or more appropriately After Earthly Life Communication?  After Death Communication was first coined by Bill and Judy Guggenheim in 1996 when they published the first book “Hello From Heaven”. If you wish to know more about the book please refer to the “Book Menu” under the category “After Earthly Life Connection”.  I have now included another book “Messages and Miracles” – Extraordinary Experiences of the Bereaved – by Louis E. LaGrand, PH.D.  If you are a knowledge seeker on  After Earthly Life Communication, this will be a worthwhile book to consider.

There could be signs, messages, dreams even apparitions that might reveal some form of communication, from the loved ones, from the spiritual home which some of us might have ignored. In some cases one’s experience could have been branded as ‘unreliable” or even as fake. In some cases we might have listened to someone who has experienced but just ignored it or assumed it is all hallucinations. If there are millions who have benefited from after earthly life communication from the loved ones why not we look into it a bit deeper, before making an adverse conclusion. Thus it would be worthwhile for us to learn more about this subject by first looking at some of the reported experiences.

However, if you are from the scientifically dominated culture then it might not be of any help to read any of these experiences, although some scientists are proving or trying to prove there is life after death or that we don’t actually die.  At the same time,  as many of us know it is also not scientifically proven that after death communication, apparitions, reincarnation or life between life are all fantasy or just fake.

I have been reading a few books written by prominent personnel on this subject and the contents are profound and along with my own experience with my family members it is convincing enough for me on the truth of these communications. However, I must admit I have personally have not experienced every type of communications as reported by many individuals around the world. Nevertheless, to some extent the personal experiences and the books have been the therapeutic tool for me, as well as for my wife. I do not mean to say that after experiencing After Earthly Life Communication it will heal your grief completely but at least  will make one understand a little bit more about our life on earth and life beyond, rather than totally confused of what happens to our loved ones when they are separated from us.

After Earthly Life Communication have been reported throughout the world immaterial of the culture, race or religion one belongs to and including those young and old.  I will be highlighting some of these valid reported experiences from the books of prominent people or other reliable sources for the benefit of everyone, periodically. At the same time if you have experiences to share, please forward too.

When we are sick we go and see a doctor but when someone is grieving especially when his or her loved one has parted very few people could be of help, simply because we do not know what to do, at least that is what we say. However most of us can still be ‘doctors’ to help those grievers, if we want to be, by learning a bit on this subject.

Finally, before we discount  After Earthly Life Communication as myth, do remember that we all have energy that cannot be created or destroyed – it can only change its form and that also validates that we are spiritual beings.  It is said that when we ‘demise’, that is when we leave the earth, we only dispose our body but our soul goes on living. The soul is the energy. This energy seems to be powerful enough to send messages – in many ways.

The first story of a reported experience on After Earthly Life Communication will appear on the 10th of September 2012. Then on I will have one posted at least every two weeks. If you come across any reliable reports or story please share it with everyone. You can forward it to me but please do indicate the source. After going through I will have it posted.
