We know many of you celebrate a very playful holiday called Halloween. You delight in all things scary and spooky. You make fun of things that would normally find you running in fear. Like little children you embrace the dark and the light and find amusement within it all. In a way, dear ones, for just a day, you are embracing life as we do.
We do not fear death because we know there is no death. We do not fear loss becausewe know there is no loss. When you lose someone on earth, we welcome them home in the heavens. When someone is released from, what we consider to be a rather beautiful but limited life on earth, they are freed into an expansive, glorious existence in the heavens. Yet we would not rush a single one of you into the heavens because we know earth, although a very tough school, offers opportunities for creating and finding the most exquisite, deep, and beautiful forms of love.
If only you could see through our eyes, you would see that even in the darkest times exist the most beautiful opportunities for deep and glorious love! In the most challenging times exist the most amazing opportunities for faith. In every darkness dear ones, you have a chance to discover that you are the light! The light lives in you. In the challenges, bring love to the surface. Be that little candle burning inside of your pumpkins! Be the bright light in the face of the darkness. Be the kind soul amidst the unconscious ones, the positive force of upliftment in a world that loves to gossip, the one who refuses to criticize and berate themselves when they make a mistake… the one who refuses to believe that death could ever possibly be the end.
We know you miss your dear ones in heaven, but if only you could feel their reality you would feel nothing but joy for their freedom, their expansion, their awareness, and their birth into an even greater love. Sit with them, perhaps today as so many of you celebrate your Halloween. Take a few moments and shut your eyes and breathe deeply. Ask the angels to help you feel the presence of a dear one in heaven, be it a family member, an animal, a friend, or perhaps just someone you admire from history. We will make sure that only those invited are around you! Ask to feel their love, their light, their joy, their energy wrapped around you in a kind embrace… and maybe just maybe dear ones, your contact with the “deceased” (or as we would say, with those souls fully alive!), will be a beautiful and inspiring experience.
