COLUMNS Sonja Grace: Predictions

Coping with the Holidays

When the holiday season arrives we are once again introduced to the glitter and glow of the retail world and familiar songs of Santa Claus is coming to town. This sensory overload is often stimulating and can also bring up some painful feelings of loss. The passing of a loved one during the holidays is not an easy thing to go through as the very smell of turkey or the sight of the Christmas tree can bring up painful memory of years past.

The timing of the Universe and our loved ones passing is not set by the calendar of events we hold here on Earth. We can heal from this loss by shifting our awareness a couple degrees to better understand how to cope with the passing of a loved one.

When we cross over into the spirit realm we are amerced in divine love as that is our natural state of being. Our deceased loved ones have the responsibility to the family pod we were born into to look after those that remain here on Earth. We do not incarnate again until our job as guardian angel to a grandchild or family member is complete. Often there will be two or three generations on the other side before we start to incarnate again. Reincarnation is the soul’s experience of being born into physical form and having the opportunity to address and clear karmic events from other lifetimes. Karma is the past experiences that went unresolved and are often the situations that never had closure. We repeat events in our lives trying to recreate the feeling so we can heal. We have relationships with people and places that go back in time for centuries.

The loss of a loved one at the holidays or on a birthday is not the revenge of the Universe it is a remembrance of their passing that from the other side is a joyful and remarkable journey back to their natural state of being.

Let’s celebrate this holiday season with the awareness that our loved ones are near us leaving signs like a penny on the floor or a flickering light. Let’s change the course of death and dying to a celebration of returning to the source. Find your peace inside this holiday season with the knowledge that your loved ones are all around you. It is up to us to love at the deepest level of our beings and bring that divine love into our daily lives. Let your grief transform into a higher consciousness and realization that we are mere visitors here on Earth.
