When someone close to you dies, to say that it's difficult is an understatement.
Losing one of the essential threads part of the network of your life, it’s as though, where they were, now there’s only a hole.
And in spiritual terms, there is a hole, but I like to think of it more like a stretchy gap that's now just stretched out a little further.
Born on to this Earth, we come to this place as Spirit with a group of individuals, others in our lives, who are part of a soul group. Part of a network. They are our family members, our siblings, our best friends, our lovers, our children, and our closest confidants.
These individuals are essential threads to the sweater that makes up who were are as people.
Pull one of those threads, and the sweater can unravel.
In the death of a loved one, especially someone essential to your soul’s path - perhaps even one of your soul mates - can be devastating.
After it happens, you, me and everyone else who has ever experienced what you are now experiencing is left searching for answers.
For the first time in your life, you may even have a real reason to figure out if Spirit was real. Spirit may take advantage of this and jump on the train, amplifying your experiences. If the people who talk about life after death are serious. Because for the first time, you have a reason to think about the Other Side, about Spirit. It’s okay, this is how it is for everyone who hasn't considered the afterlife, until they have someone over there giving them a reason to wonder.
Thankfully, you now have someone located there, in the realm of Spirit, to help create the bridge to assist you in creating the link required to sense, feel, hear and connect with Spirit. A deceased loved one on the other side is called a helper spirit.
Having a friend in spirit can be fun - because their visitations tend to be more light-hearted than family, and it can eliminate the fear of connection with ghosts, because now someone you know is a ghost. Learn the difference here - because your person is probably crossed over, not a technical ghost though.
You and your Loved One are now two people, interested in a common goal - just like always.
Except for this time, the goal is healing the wound created by the gap of their absence.
And this gap is now like a portal to the Spiritual Realm.
With a hole now in the fabric of your life, created by their absence, you now have a gateway to the Other Side, where there wasn’t one before.
Imagine having a white sheet, hanging on the laundry line, with you standing on one side of it. That white sheet is a network of all of the barriers, connections, and pieces of the puzzle you have which makes up the web of understanding in your physical life.
When one of those essential elements, a person you love deeply, departs the physical world, it leaves a giant hole in the sheet.
What was once a complete, white and non-see throughable sheet is no more - because there’s a hole now. Basically what happens is a temporary portal is created.
Through that hole, some will begin to see, sense and hear the presence of the person they love, and they may think they're are losing their mind - but they're not.
Just as two Souls could connect in the physical world - two souls can still connect only on other sides of the sheet now.
When you lose someone close to you, and begin to see, hear and feel Spirit, it generally means you’re activating your spiritual abilities out of pure necessity, and it's not the only time this can happen.
Anytime someone who is part of the thread of your life leaves or comes into your soul group, onto Earth from Spirit, you’re closer to a personal portal to Spirit and sensory abilities may increase because of this.
When can one start to access spirit? When is it easier to connect?
This is most common during these experiences:
Childbirth (as discussed here)
The Meeting of a Soulmate
The Death of a Loved One (as discussed in this article)
In each of these cases, you can experience an awakening of your Spiritual abilities, including mediumship abilities that have yet to be realized, because now, there’s an opening.

Think you might be going crazy? I recommend burning Frankincense whenever you start thinking spiritual thoughts especially those that may cause anxiety, before taking any next steps, such as hard drugs. I'm serious about this. People have died thinking about friends who died that may be visiting them now, by taking drastic steps to make it stop. So don’t. Just go burn some Frankincense and relax, and if you are currently in the process of confronting death, welcome to this blog, please feel free to search any of the articles on the sidebar.
Becoming sensitive can happen at any time, so why not take some time to settle in, get cozy with the idea, and nuzzle up to the concept a bit?
You wouldn’t be alone, and no, it’s not just the grief that can do this. Visitations tend to be stronger in the first 7-10 days following death. Read more about this here.
