Healing Grief – Reclaiming Life After Any Loss

Sometimes we need to find our own source in to manage our grief. If you ardent reader then there are many good books which help you to understand our life better and at the same time  ti could help you to cope up with the pain. Books in a way and until today are my companion.  

One of the books  which might be of help is ‘Healing Grief -Reclaiming Life After Any Loss’, published in 2001. The author of the book is James Van Praagh who is well known medium.

James Van Praagh, as a medium  has been linking the communication between the loved ones  living on earth and the ones living in the spiritual realm. It is claimed that he has helped to change millions of lives who have lost their loved ones. Although not everyone would have met him personally for a reading, his books along with the books written by many others have definitely helped many people around the world.

In this book James shares many insightful spiritual messages from the loved ones on the other side, along with his own personal accounts. He assists us to be aware that everything which happens to us is for the evolvement of our soul,  along its  journey.

James also introduces some therapeutic remedies by giving healing guidelines not only for those who have lost  their loved ones,  but also for those who have ended up with divorce, loss of pets as well as other types of losses.

In the last chapter, he has 38  interesting questions and answers session. It could  be useful for us to understand what could be  the life on the other side. He also says that  the only ‘religion’ on the other side is  love. I believe as love exists in every religion it will continue to do so more meaningfully on the other side.

He concluded the book by saying that this book will not bring about a quick fix to your on-going grief but it could  bring comfort and assist one in resolving some of the various questions or conditions of one’s daily life. He says how we react to a particular situation is important which could either hinder or assist us to handle the situation.

Spiritual Religion

Dr Gary E Schwartz, Ph.D, is a professor of psychology, medicine, neurology, psychiatry, and surgery at the University of Arizona and director of its Human Energy Systems Laboratory.

He took keen interest in the establishing the truth on after life. He carried out ‘The After Life Experiments’ and published a book under the same title in 2002. I have also listed his book under the ‘Book Menu’.

In the same book he very briefly touched on spirituality under the sub heading ‘Spiritual Religion’. Here  is what he says……..

Spiritual Religion

If we do not primarily spend our time in the search for more money, a more beautiful partner, and a bigger house, or In a competition with people who get in our way, how will we spend our time? Is it possible that we’ll spend more time revisiting questions that have troubled us since the beginning of humankind?

Where did we come from? ‘When did consciousness begin? Why are we here? Where are we going? As science and spirituality come together, this will enable us to make a collective spiritual advancement that could be greater than at any other time in recorded history.

Most of us have been taught that the first person to be resurrected, who would continue to serve as a bridge between the physical earth and God, was the profoundly loving and caring Jesus. However, if the living soul hypothesis is true, it’s possible that other spiritually enlightened persons, including Moses and the Buddha, may be included among the large community of deceased spiritual leaders who deeply care about the family of humankind and are ready to further assist us if we are prepared to receive their wisdom. Not only did this extensive community of spiritual leaders precede Jesus, they might have assisted him when he walked the earth.

As we entertain such ideas, we are led to posit that truly loving people from all religious faiths may be contributing to the evolution of human consciousness worldwide.

If the living’ soul hypothesis is true, we all will face the need to re-examine the history and evolution of religious institutions. No doubt it will be recognized that many religions may be more interconnected spiritually than even their leaders currently appreciate. In the same way that workers in the health care community are coming to appreciate, slowly but surely, that they must combine conventional, complementary, and alternative medicines in an “integrative medicine” framework, so spiritual care may one day combine conventional, complementary, and alternative religions in an integrative spiritual” framework.
