Grief Therapy: Reconnecting With The Departed
Emile Jean Pin, my beloved husband and life-partner of 27 years, recently died of a bee sting. For most of his life, Jean was a renowned Jesuit priest, a professor at the Gregorian University (the University of the Vatican), and a social advocate and researcher.
Since the night of his death, Jean has been coming to me in spirit form. His repeated manifestations have proven to me that the spirit lives-on, that relationships do not end in death. In short, that love never dies.
My experiences with Jean have inspired me to create a new form of grief therapy. My method drastically diverges from the traditional Western therapeutic approach (grieve, let go and move on), which often leaves the bereaved at an even greater loss. By contrast, my method guides people to reconnect rather than say goodbye. During the past six years, I have been assisting the grieving to do just this and the healing that has resulted is astonishing.
Reconnecting is a lifeline, especially for elderly widows and widowers who are isolated and unlikely to form another primary relationship. People who have a lost a loved one to sudden, tragic illness or accidents also need a chance to reconnect and say farewell. Likewise, parents who have lost children and children who have lost parents also desperately need to reconnect and stay connected.
Reconnecting is vital also for those who harbor resentment toward someone who has died. Traditional therapy offers no assistance for such clients.
Using a technique I’ve created called, Dialoguing with the Departed, I allow the spirit being to speak through me. Because spirit beings are evolved, all knowing, all seeing, all loving and all forgiving healing, I am delighted to say that it’s never too late to heal wounds, resolve resentments, make peace and repair a damaged relationship with someone who has passed over. In this back and forth dialogue, old resentments and wounds are miraculously healed. As one patient rightly told me, “I wish my mother would hurry up and die so we can work it out!”
I also show clients how to cast off the training wheels and establish their own direct communication with those who have passed over. Learning how to communicate with a spirit being is easier than one thinks. First I show how to create a "State of Receptivity,” which includes stilling the mind and breathing. Spirit is born on the breath.
Next I cultivate awareness by outlining the often-overlooked signs of spiritual presence in one’s life. Oftentimes, just becoming aware of the signs of spirit presence is sufficient to initiate reconnection. Most people are astounded to discover that their loved ones have been present all along, waiting patiently for them to open the door of their hearts.
I recently had the pleasure of appearing on the Manifesting Wellness Show hosted by Bente Hansen. We talked about many issues, but mostly we discussed my new Grief Therapy method that diverges from the tragically limited traditional Western grief therapy approach that consists of guiding the bereaved to grieve, let go and move on, which creates a greater sense of loss.
