What If the Dead Came Back?
Last night, I saw a promo for an upcoming TV show called Resurrection. From what I can tell, it poses the question, “What if someone who died came back?”
The promo featured people aghast at this chance for a do-over. I’m sure the show is going to go all murder-victim-comes-back-to-freak-out-their-killer at some point, but the basic premise looks pretty cool.
What would you do if someone you loved returned from the Other Side? What would you tell them? What would you do differently from when they were alive (the first time)?
One of the most frequent concerns I get during a sitting involves regret.
“Does she know how much I miss her?”
“Does he know I’m sorry?”
“I wish I could tell him I love him.”
In the case of this TV show, the characters get a chance for some face-to-face reconciliation. I suspect this would be the optimal scenario for most of us – to have them here, in front of us, to say all those things that were left unsaid.
The thing is, even in spirit form, they DO hear us. Plenty of clients say to me, “Tell them (fill in the blank).” And I’m like, “You just told them yourself.”
If you’ve come to some kind of enlightenment about a thorny relationship, a new perspective on a situation, or just want to feel the presence again of someone you miss, try this:
Close your eyes and focus on settling your breathing. As you relax, picture a beautiful bridge, You’re standing on one end, and at the other, the person you want to talk to. Imagine the both of you walking towards the center of the bridge. As you meet in the middle, take a moment to look at them and see how wonderfully happy and healthy they look.
Take their hands. Now tell them what’s on your mind. Feel their love around you as you speak, and know that they are hearing every word. Notice if they say anything back (they may or may not, it doesn’t matter).
Once you’re done, thank them for coming and watch as they return to their side of the bridge.
Over the next few days, watch for “signs” that you were heard.
The point is, while we may not necessarily be able to see and hear those on the Other Side, they can see and hear us. Use that knowledge to say all that was left unsaid while they were here.
