“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief and unspeakable love.” ~ Washington Irving
Life-death-rebirth transitions are passages which bring about physical, emotional, and spiritual maturation. Many of us have difficulty accepting or moving through loss of any kind— let alone the kind that unravels us to our core, and challenges us to find the spiritual strength to live in the midst of such devastating pain.
During these dark moments of the soul, I find solace in knowing that we are all here for a purpose, a soul mission. Some of us complete our soul’s purpose earlier than others; therefore, our time in a physical body is shorter. Yet, we all originate and return home to our eternal divine source regardless of our chronological age.
As part of our soul blueprint, not all of us intend to be born or live an extended physical life. Some of us are only here for a short time to ground our human experience through the birth or physical process. We come to Earth to acquire whatever spiritual information we need for our continued soul progression. For example, it’s like stopping for a layover when traveling by plane to an eternal destination.
Our soul blueprint impacts the choices we make before we are born―such as choosing our body, gender, parents, and the genetic and environmental circumstances―of our physical life. We are responsible for these prior choices and how they affect our current choices while living on Earth. The conscious awareness that we made such choices before we were born can empowers us to make choices during our lives that help us shift to a higher soul vibrational frequency.
Each person’s soul journey is unique; yet, we are energetically connected to others for our personal transformation. Ultimately, we cannot know another’s soul journey, even when that person is as close to us as a child, spouse, or parent. It’s essential that we acknowledge that whatever choices they make are part of their soul’s path—even when that choice is to transition early through death. We can celebrate and be grateful for the precious time we’ve had with them, even if it’s only a few years, months, or moments. Regardless of the length of time we’ve spent together physically, our love and connection transcends the physical universe, and energetically resides in the eternal space of the soul.
There is no preparation we can undertake for the life-shattering loss of a loved one. It is an unfathomable pain that penetrates our lives and pierces our hearts. However, we can choose to honor our soul connection with our loved one by transforming our loss into love. We can channel the energy released at our loved one’s death by putting their powerful light to positive use.
