When someone close to you dies, it can feel devastating.
For many, it’s also the first time they really consider the whole Spirit, Afterlife, and the possibility of the Other Side thing.
After someone you love passes, you may start to hear things you didn’t hear before, see things out of the corner of your eye that you never used to see, and sense things, that before the crossing of your Loved One, you can't ever remember feeling.
This is normal.
Your Loved One likely wants to get in touch with you, and yes you can do it outside of a mediumship reading.
Depending on how close you were, and the nature of your soul relationship, it’s likely that even with death, neither of you were ready for that bond to end.
And just because one of you has moved to a new home in another realm, doesn't mean the bond can't continue in some way.
It doesn’t have to end, either - and your Loved Ones can help make that a reality and it doesn't have to be unhealthy. In grief counseling, there is a continuing bonds theory that says that in some ways, continuing a bond with someone now non-physical, can be helpful.
When someone close to you dies, especially a soulmate, a parent or a best friend, someone who you would readily consider your other half, this person, literally can become your other half - in Spirit.
What this looks like in practice…
One of the first things we do in the mediumship development is to meet a bridge person that links you here on Earth to the Other Side, over in Spirit.
This individual is often a:
Gatekeeper Spirit Guide
They serve as a reference point of trust when interacting with any other individual in Spirit. I consider this spirit-individual, your Spirit World Orientation coach.
They're someone you ideally meet one of the very first times you begin interacting in the Spirit World, and someone you can go to time and time again for help with anything you need while in the Spirit World - protection, guidance, advice, etc.
The key here - is this Spirit Individual is there for you as a trustworthy source of information you can rely on when you are unsure about anything at all.
What better person for this job, than someone with whom you already have a foundation of trust?
What better candidate than someone you already know, love and whose communication style you understand?
There is no better "bridge" individual than a person you love.
This is why, many psychic mediums start developing their abilities only once they have someone special on the other side they can trust.
And for many, there is really no incentive to build a relationship with Spirit, until you know someone personally over there.
Spirit communication is a type of language we can all learn at any age. When you have someone you trust on the other side, you can both continue your connection with them in Spirit and access other realms of the spiritual reality in tandem.
So consider your Loved One in Spirit, an old best friend, now ready and willing (and very excited) to start teaching you a new language of communicating via subtle energy.
Once you learn the language, then, the communication and connection - never has to end.
To start learning to connect in Spirit, check out the eBook, The Medium’s Toolkit, which goes over the different methods of how any spirit, even if it’s a pet or a person you love, can communicate with you when your sensitivities are opened up. The eCourse, Talking to Spirits, also helps to identify how the connection opens and is available when you join The Membership Program.
